Not Losing Weight? It Could Be Metabolic Resistance!

“I always ate healthy and never had a weight issue until I hit menopause. Then I got cancer and chemo raised my blood sugar and stress affected my thyroid, causing it to practically shut down. Inflammatory issues made it worse. I lost 27 pounds on your Metabolic Boosting Weight Loss Plan and my endocrinologist suggested that I add your Quick Cleanse since my weight loss has stopped to lose the last 10 pounds. He said the chemo treatments, rheumatoid arthritis, and the medications have affected my blood sugar levels, liver health and slowed my metabolism, making it harder to lose weight and block fat burning. 
He told me to avoid green juices and other cleanses because they deplete important nutrients, strip my colon of the good bacteria, and leave my health worse off. Can you explain what makes your quick cleanse safer than the others and how it works? I need a detox that won't wreak havoc with my body's inflammatory response. HELP! I want to feel like myself again."

I don't know about you, but I can relate to this story. I struggled to lose weight until I learned how metabolism works and what we can do to get it moving again. Her symptoms describe a classic case of Metabolic Resistance or Syndrome X, which simply means a cluster of conditions that make it extremely hard to lose weight and very easy to gain weight and store excess fat around the midsection and stomach area.

The other signs that someone may be struggling with Metabolic Syndrome/Syndrome X include, but are not limited:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • High triglycerides
  • High blood sugar or erratic blood sugar (low to high)
  • Excess body fat around the waist
  • Inflammation
  • Autoimmune issues
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Gain weight fast
  • Intense hunger and cravings
  • Elevated cortisol (stress hormones) levels

These metabolic Issues are just the start of weight issues. It's made worse by drugs and treatments that affect and damage liver health and elevate blood sugar issues even more. The excess belly fat causes erratic, unbalanced hormones that can wreak havoc with your mood and cause intense hunger and cravings that can make it impossible to stick to your weight loss plan and much harder to lose weight.

Usually, the first thing we all do when we want to lose weight is to eat cleaner and reduce caloric intake. The problem with lowering calories is that our thyroid, the metabolic master gland, signals our metabolism telling it to slow down due to caloric restriction. 

It's a catch-22. We need to reduce calories to lose weight, but our metabolism slows down and prevents us from losing. We get stuck and become stressed. Some work out more, or more intensely, which only makes things worse because our bodies receive this as stress and cortisol levels (stress hormones) become even more elevated. The result is that most give up in frustration. 

Most doctors aren’t aware of this, or how easy it is to alleviate, so you can lose weight and keep it off, which helps keep inflammation in check and strengthen immune health, so your body stays healthy and can fight off cancer and other diseases. And it all starts by gently cleansing and detoxifying your liver.

Why is it so important to nourish and protect liver health and cleanse?

The liver helps remove waste and metabolizes nutrients and medicines. Our livers get fatty liver disease, called hepatic steatosis, oftentimes due to excessive alcohol and carbohydrate/sugar consumption. Most people don't realize how important it is to keep our liver healthy, or how it is directly connected to our thyroid until they cleanse and detoxify theirs and their energy returns and weight begins to fall off.

The bottom line is when our liver is healthy, we lose weight easier. When it's congested and in need of a cleanse, we gain weight, can't lose weight, and nutrients and medications aren't utilized efficiently, so we become bloated, gain weight, and don't feel healthy.

That's why, when it comes to losing weight and improving health, EVERYONE'S FIRST STEP should be to cleanse. But not just any cleanse will do. In fact, most cleanses include juicing or taking supplements that strip our bodies of the essential nutrients it needs to stay healthy and lose weight. This causes blood sugar levels to rise even higher. Most cleanses today also include certain vegetables known as goitrogenic vegetables. Goitrogenic nutrients impair thyroid function, adding insult to injury.

What makes the LynFit Quick Cleanse Kit different than all the rest?

The Quick Cleanse Kit was specifically created for people like you and me whose health and metabolism need a little kickstart, making it easier to lose weight and begin melting off dangerous, stubborn belly fat. It helps detoxify and neutralize toxins that make us sick and block weight loss by addressing the underlying issues.

The Quick Cleanse Kit is specifically designed for those with metabolic issues and have more than an inch of belly fat to be burned off. It doesn’t strip your body of nutrients or make your microbiome unhealthy. It replenishes the good gut bacteria, so they thrive, improving every aspect of your health, making you healthier and making it easier to lose weight.

We include Advanced Thyro-Boost for good reason. It contains the specific nutrients our thyroids need, which prevents it from slowing down. It improves thyroid health, so it works more efficiently, preventing it from slowing down and keeping it healthy for sustainable weight weight loss. Thyro-Boost also contains ashwagandha, which helps your body adapt to stress; both physical and mental. 

The dynamic duo of Thyro-Boost and Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore
addresses the underlying issues that may be preventing you from losing weight. They gently cleanse and restore the liver and whole-body health (every cell benefits), making it easier to burn off belly fat, so you can lose weight faster and easier.

It's a holistic approach that works with your body, not against it, the way other cleanses do. It naturally addresses the underlying issues that make it harder to lose weight. 

What else can the Quick Cleanse do for you?

It alleviates the constant fight with cravings. By not addressing these issues it's like trying to drive with your emergency brake on.

I suggest everyone do a quick cleanse, especially this time of year, and repeat it as frequently as they can. You can do a quick cleanse for 48 hours, or five days, or live on it, it's so healthy. Your body and speed of your metabolism (lack of weight loss) will dictate how often you need to cleanse. I personally try to cleanse for two or more days every week, usually after I've over-indulged, traveled, or feel yucky, as I've always had a slow digestive system (another sign of hypothyroidism) that leads to metabolic resistance. I incorporate the Quick Cleanse in my everyday metabolic boosting lifestyle, some days hitting it harder than others.

Regardless of what's stopping you from losing weight, reducing inflammation, easing your aches and pains, or eliminating hunger and cravings, the Quick Cleanse Kit can help. Start now! The only thing you have to lose is the excess weight you've been talking about losing!
