LynFit Lean Bars

LynFit Lean Bars are the cleanest, purest, and best tasting protein bars. If you’re stuck in the weight loss rut and can’t lose weight, your protein bar may be to blame. 

Most protein bars are loaded with fats and sugars and do not contain enough protein, or the right kind of protein, for weight loss. That’s what makes LynFit Lean Bars better than all of the rest. They are the only bar that’s made with pure, high-grade whey, prebiotic fiber, and taste so delicious you’ll stop craving those snack foods that cause weight gain.

LynFit Lean Bars are oven-baked and made from real foods and natural flavors and even healthy enough to replace a meal with due to their protein content.  

    • Low carb
    • Less sugar
    • Gluten and soy free
    • 1-2 grams sugar
    • 9-10 grams net low-glycemic carbs
    • 9-10 grams prebiotic fiber
    • 19g metabolic boosting whey protein
    • Only 150 calories
    • No preservatives  

The Lean Bar's soft, chewy texture satisfies your need to chew while taming your sweet tooth. The fiber keeps you feeling fuller longer and improves gut health. It's a tantalizing sensation that your taste buds and body will love. 

Fiber is vital when trying to lose weight because it keeps you feeling fuller longer while providing multiple health benefits. Dietary fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes—and that’s exactly where the problem lies. Most of us don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables to reach your goals. You need to limit whole grains when trying to lose weight, making it difficult to reach your daily quota of fiber. 

Just some of the many added benefits of LynFit Lean Bars include:

    • Boosts metabolism and promotes weight loss
    • Kills cravings and keeps you feeling full
    • Protects and helps prevent muscle loss
    • Helps control blood sugar
    • Great for diabetics 
    • Prevent candida while normalizing gut/intestinal bacteria
    • Strengthens your immune system
    • Helps tummy troubles
    • Promotes regularity
    • Naturally energizing
    • Saves time and money
    • Great for clean eating while on the fun and road

When It Comes To Weight Loss, Diet & Exercise Aren't Enough


If you’re struggling to lose weight (whether it's 5, 10, or even 50 pounds) and hoping to melt off the unsightly fat that's covering your abs and making your thighs jiggle and your arms wiggle, diet and exercise won’t be enough! And here's why.

If you've been more than 10 pounds overweight, it's important to know that you've changed your bodies biology, meaning:

    • Your blood sugar levels have become unbalanced and most likely high
    • Your blood fats (lipids) have become elevated i.e.: high cholesterol and triglycerides
    • Your appetite is increasing and is most likely out of control
    • You crave all of the wrong foods and to make matters worse you're always hungry and can never seem to eat enough

Sound familiar? Sadly, it gets worse. 

Excess body fat has a secret life of its own. No one talks about it, but most of us deal with its harmful effects every day. Effects such as hormonal imbalances and elevated insulin and cortisol levels to name a few. These high hormonal levels act like a tornado and destroy everything in its path with reckless abandon. The most important being your health. It STOPS you from losing weight despite how many hours you spend working out or dieting. 

If you don't think your excess weight and body fat are affecting your ability to lose weight, ask yourself this simple question and answer honestly:

Have you ever wanted to lose weight badly, yet your appetite and cravings were so intense you felt like you could jump out of your skin? And the next thing you knew you were heading to the store to get any food you could get your hands on to binge?

Yes, I used the word binge. You can thank your fat cells for causing that metabolic meltdown. The problem may seem complicated, but the solution is pretty simple. You must first address the underlying issues that are stopping you from losing weight.

Fat Facts: Here's what happens when you have excess weight and body fat

    • It sends you false hunger signals and creates intense cravings for all the wrong foods.
    • Excess belly fat (and overall fat) prevents weight loss. It's like trying to drive with the parking brake on.
    • Your body is more likely to burn off muscle first vs. fat. Fat is incredibly stubborn and will fight every step of the way. This muscle loss is the cause of a slowing metabolism.
    • Depletes your energy and affects your mood, so the net result is you fall off your weight loss plan, and that is exactly what your fat cells want you to do. The fat monster wants you to keep feeding it carbs, sugars and fattening fats all day. 

The great news is that ALL fat can be burned off, no matter how old you are or how stubborn your metabolism may be. Yes, even if you've been overweight most of your life. You just have to create the right conditions for fat loss.

The best approach is natural, holistic vs. medications that can harm health and have lasting side effects. Most of the time, the solutions need to become your new way of life vs. quick fix thinking. This is where the strategic use of specific natural supplements should be used by anyone who wants to improve health and is trying to lose weight and keep it off.

My LynFit Essential Fat Loss Stack addresses these underlying issues using safe, all- natural botanical extracts for a holistic approach. This stack attacks fat loss and addresses your weight loss problems from every possible angle. That's the very reason it's so effective. 

Stacking your thermogenic and fat loss supplements does more than burning fat, it prevents the hunger and cravings from happening in the first place (the hunger monster doesn't stand a chance) while improving your health, so you don't just look better, you feel better the same day you start.  

Prevention is the cure! Don't wait until you're elbow deep in junk food. Take a few natural precautions to keep that fat loss monster from showing up in the first place.

THE LYNFIT ESSENTIAL FAT LOSS STACK

The Essential Fat Loss Stack consists of the LynFit Accelerator Advanced and LynFit Cutting Edge

It utilizes scientifically formulated dosages of the cleanest, purest, highest quality botanical nutrients and amino acids; conveniently stacked together into one easy-to-use system, providing fast results while saving you time and money. From priming your body for fat loss to forcing your body to burn off the fat that’s released into your system, this system attacks weight and fat loss from every angle, so you don’t just lose weight—you keep it off for good.

Now you don't have to search for a weight loss and fat burning product that meets your needsLynFit did it for you!  

Let's take a closer look at both of these supplements and learn how their individual pure, natural qualities work together to naturally increase your metabolism, kill hunger and cravings, and balance blood sugar levels, prompting your body to burn off stored fat for energy. In essence, your body becomes a fat burning furnace while at the same time preventing new fat cell formation.

LYNFIT ACCELERATOR ADVANCED

LynFit's Accelerator Advanced is a safe, all-natural, yet highly effective fat burning metabolic enhancer that makes losing weight faster and easier by helping to control your appetite, especially during cravings for sugars and carbohydrate-containing foods.

Accelerator Advanced takes the guesswork out of which formula you should be using since we combined them all into one. It is the perfect combination of LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator. You can see and feel the difference the same day you begin taking it.

Accelerator Advanced contains less caffeine than a cup of tea, so you will not feel jittery and "crash" the way you do with other weight loss supplements and has been specially formulated to:  

    • Help maximize weight loss and fat burning
    • Help promote thyroid health
    • Help reduce hunger and kill cravings
    • Help reduce carbohydrate absorption
    • Help eliminate excess water
    • Help reduce stress-related belly fat
    • Help improve mood and focus
    • Help increase energy (fights midday fatigue)  

Clinical studies have shown that the specific blend of key ingredients in the quality and dosage, found only in LynFit Accelerator Advanced, speeds up weight loss by reducing the absorption of dietary fats and blood sugar, spiking carbohydrates while accelerating, promoting, and encouraging the body's natural ability to burn fat. 

LynFit Accelerator Advanced contains a unique blend of ingredients, inspired by nature and perfected by LynFit Nutrition.

    • Raspberry ketones
    • Forskolin
    • Green tea extract
    • L-Tyrosine
    • Banaba leaf
    • White kidney bean extract
    • Guggul extracts
    • Cocoa bean extract
    • Thiamine
    • Niacin
    • Vitamins B6 and B12
    • Chromium
    • Pantothenic acid
    • Potassium
    • UVA Ursi Leaf extract
    • Dandelion root extract
    • Hydrangea root extract
    • Celery seed
    • Black tea extract
    • Suma root extract
    • Copper
    • Chlorophyllin
    • Alpha lipoic acid  

The scientifically blended formula naturally tricks your body into acting like a "thin person," allowing you to burn more calories and melt fat while reducing bloating and blood sugar.

Don't let the fancy names of the ingredients fool you. Combined, they provide you with a stimulant-free, yet highly effective fat burner that's safe enough to use on a daily basis. 

Bitter orange and Ephedra are common stimulants found in most fat burners (Ephedra is illegal in most places). Stimulants typically increase alertness and awareness (think Red Bull® energy drinks) but wear out the adrenal glands, leaving you feeling worse than you did before you took it. Some stimulants produce a sense of euphoria (happiness), in particular, the stimulants which exert influence on the central nervous system. However, many people have great sensitivities to stimulants (i.e. They get the jitters, red face, agitated, etc.), and for that reason, we removed the Bitter Orange from the Accelerator Advanced. Even my 73-year-old mom takes it daily, and she's extra-sensitive to stimulants  :)

LYNFIT CUTTING EDGE

LynFit Cutting Edge is an all-natural stimulant-free blend of scientifically tested, highly effective researched fat burning nutrients and ingredients that have been specially combined using precise dosages.

This combination of high quality, pure ingredients now includes L-Carnitine Tartrate, among others, that prompt the body to burn fat and carbohydrates more efficiently. High quality, pure ingredients such as:

    • L-Carnitine Tartrate
    • CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
    • Choline
    • Inositol
    • Parsley Leaf, Uva Ursi, Hydrangea Root

The all-natural combination of fat burning ingredients helps your body convert fat into usable energy and reduce fat cells, preventing new fat cells from forming while improving your overall health by helping to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides.

LynFit’s formula is further enhanced with a high potency dosage of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5). Once Pantothenic Acid is converted in the body into co-enzyme A, it works directly with L-Carnitine to convert food into energy.

This incredible supplement reduces bloating and acts as a detoxifier. High in B-complex vitamins, the Cutting Edge also naturally elevates your mood. Using it, you will notice that you not only feel better, but you also look slimmer and more toned, with or without exercise.  

Additionally, LynFit Cutting Edge:

    • Helps control hunger
    • Helps elevate metabolism
    • Promotes recovery from exercise or overuse of muscles
    • Helps support energy and endurance
    • Is Ephedra and stimulant-free
    • Is guaranteed free of wheat, gluten, milk or milk derivatives, lactose, soy, sugar, preservatives, artificial color, and flavor

In short, LynFit Cutting Edge helps people with stubborn metabolisms lose weight and shed excess body fat fast!

WHY DO YOU NEED TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF?

Have you ever counted how many products do you use to get dressed in the morning? One to control perspiration, another to keep your hair intact, and if you’re like me, you use a dozen others to get the job done. Fat loss is no different. We need tools to see results.

This combination of LynFit Accelerator Advanced and LynFit Cutting Edge replaces the need for a cabinet full of mismatched ineffective supplements, saving you time and money while helping you to stay consistent.  

SUGGESTED ESSENTIAL FAT LOSS STACK USAGE

As a dietary supplement, start off taking one (1) Accelerator Advanced and one (1) Cutting Edge capsule in the morning, and another one (1) of each again at lunch.

One (1) Cutting Edge should also be taken again at 2-3 p.m. to encourage all day fat burning, or you may take two (2) Cutting Edge at lunch to remain consistent.

Always take your supplements with a full glass of water.

Do not take within 4–5 hours of bedtime.

Consistency and frequency matter! The best results come when you take your daily supplement doses about 3-4 hours apart. Frequent dosing throughout the day is recommended to achieve a steady state of nutrients in your plasma. 

Anyone who struggles with cravings, hunger, and weight loss should take the Essential Fat Loss Stack. If you struggle with blood sugar issues, pre-diabetic and/or diabetic, hyperthyroid, menopausal, post pregnancy, and men who have been more than ten pounds overweight for most of their adult life will greatly benefit from the Essential Fat Loss Stack.

Outsmart Your Metabolism To Burn Fat Faster!


Whether you’re trying to burn off stubborn body fat or shed a few pounds, you’ll need to know the fat loss facts first before you can successfully melt fat and lose weight.

THE PROBLEM

More than 100 million people in the U.S. have a metabolic issue known as Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, or Insulin Resistance that’s STOPPING them from losing weight.

Despite there being a gym on every corner and a diet/fad for every hour of the day, Americans are becoming more overweight and obese by the day. Even the so-called “skinny” people are now sporting excess belly fat. Until you understand how your metabolism works, you might never lose weight. 

What does belly fat have to do with not being able to lose weight? 

If you're serious about losing weight, attacking fat loss needs to be at the top of your priority list. Having excess fat on or around your belly makes losing weight and burning off fat even harder and can even stop weight loss, despite aggressive efforts.

Belly fat specifically throws your hormones out of balance, which acts as a parking brake for weight loss. In order to lose weight easier, you’ve got to first remove the parking brake. That’s the secret to outsmarting your metabolism; address the underlying issues first. While it may be easy to do, you do have to be consistent because fat is stubborn and practically fights back.  

IF YOU DO THESE THREE SIMPLE THINGS, YOU'LL BURN OFF THAT STUBBORN STORED BODY FAT AND LOSE WEIGHT FASTER 

You can lose 10, 20, 30 pounds of fat, lose inches, and keep it off forever if you teach your body how to live off its own fat reserves; aka: burn fat. 

Step One:

Eat clean, specifically for fat loss. Download the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan HERE and choose foods from that list only! If you don't see it on the list, it's not good for fat loss and certainly won't help you lose weight. 

Step Two:

Reset and reprogram your metabolism, so you burn more calories all day long, even while you sleep. 

The problem with every diet (including low carb/paleo) is as soon as you decrease your calories, your metabolism slows down, despite the fact that we need to reduce them to lose weight.

There are lots of things you can do to prevent this from happening, but the simple solution is to turn up the heat in your metabolism with the strategic use of specific supplements such as LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge (or the new combined supplement, LynFit Accelerator Advanced). These supplements are thermogenic, which means they heat up your metabolism, making it easier for your body to burn off that stubborn body fat that's not only keeping you from fitting into your favorite jeans but also makes it harder to lose weight.  

In addition to taking those supplements and cleaning up your diet, you should also be: 

  • Eating between certain hours only, to allow your body a 12-hour fast each night to lower blood sugar levels. I suggest 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. So no eating, zero, nothing, after 7 p.m.
  • Exercising on an empty stomach in the morning
  • Cutting carbs at night and stick to leafy greens vs. the higher carb vegetables like string beans and carrots (see the food list in the Meal Plan for more)

Doesn’t exercise make you burn fat? Nope! Even when you exercise hard, it doesn’t mean that the fat that’s circulating will be burned off. Most often, it's re-stored unless you have the right nutrients present. That’s why it’s critical that you Do have what your body needs to make this happen.

When it comes to losing weight and melting fat off those stubborn hard to reach places, sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough. That's where LynFit comes in. Think of fat loss supplements as tools that make it faster and easier, the same way power tools lighten your workload. 

Step Three:

Our weight and body fat percentages have increased because our bodies (even the fittest ones) have become sensitive to the foods we eat. To make matters worse, we eat way too much, and we eat too often, so our bodies don’t have time to use all the fuel we provide. Body fat is a telltale sign you’ve been overeating. This is a bigger problem than most people realize and it’s also why we can’t lose weight despite our endless hours in the gym.

Body fat is a telltale sign you’ve been overeating. This is a bigger problem than most people realize and it’s also why we can’t lose weight, despite our endless hours in the gym.

When you're overweight and have belly fat, your body overreacts to carbohydrates, and it releases too much insulin, the fat-storing hormone. The elevated insulin opens the doors to your fat cells both inside (around your organs) and outside your body.

The good news? This is where the LynFit Essential Fat Loss Stack comes into play. 

The Essential Fat Loss Stack attacks fat from every angle, and that's what it takes to burn off fat and boost metabolism. 

First thing in the morning, as soon as you get up take: 

  • (1) LynFit Accelerator
  • (1) LynFit Carb Edge

    If you work out, and you're trying to burn fat, you'll want to work out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach when your glycerin levels are low. This allows you to burn fat faster, and if you add the Essential Fat Loss Stack, you can triple your results.

    Black coffee is okay to have, but nothing else. 

    If you don't work out, take the LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge anyway. it will mimic the blood sugar, glycerin-lowering benefits, much like exercise.

After your workout, or 2-3 hours after your first dose, or if you don't exercise, take:

  • (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
  • (1) LynFit Carb Edge

    This will guarantee that fat is being burned off vs. being restored again.

At lunch time, when your metabolism begins to decline, which is exactly what you don't want, so you need to turn up the heat again by taking:

  • (1) LynFit Accelerator (if taking two Accelerators is too much for your body, open the capsule and sprinkle ½ of its contents vs. not taking it at all)
  • (1) LynFit Carb Edge
  • (1) LynFit Cutting Edge

Supplements are more important than you might think and everyone is different when it comes to dosage. It's important to remember that you can start slow and add as you go, and as needed.

But food is the reason we get fat to begin with, so swap out your fat-storing food for metabolic boosting thermogenic food (see the food list in the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan). Thermogenic means heat, so these foods will heat up and rev up your metabolism, making it easier to melt off stubborn body fat.

Remove all milk and non-dairy creamers. And yes, this includes coconut oils and milk.

Replace with black coffee and add Melt Fat Milk.

Try this metabolic boosting, fat blasting "Coffee a-la Protein" drink. You'll love it, and it helps replace the fattening creamers and milk.

  • (1-2 scoops) LynFit Protein Powder of choice
  • (1 cup) Coffee

    Mix the protein powder according to the label directions using warm water for hot coffee or cold water if you're having iced coffee. Add the Melt Fat Milk and enjoy!

    This is the most delicious way to enjoy your coffee and have a metabolic boosting shake.

    If you're not a coffee fan, try calorie-free chai teas instead.

 We love to hear about your successes. Please feel free to send us your before and after photos and progress reports to Support@LynFit.com. But more than anything else:

The Great Diet Debate


The only topic that’s debated more than the current presidential election is weight loss and workouts. It seems everyone has something to say on these topics. Despite there being a diet for every minute of the day and a new workout popping up by the second, Americans are gaining weight and becoming less fit. Have you ever wondered which diet provides the best weight loss, and do they all help you burn off fat?

Most of us get overwhelmed at the mere thought of which one to pick. From Paleo to Pilates, there is misleading information, all of which stops us from losing weight and getting into shape. All the while increasing our stress levels and sending us into a downward spiral, which is never productive when it comes to making the decision to improve our health. How are we supposed to sort through all of this misinformation so we can lose weight and get into shape?

Keep It Simple And Stick To Science

Dr. Frederick HatfieldI've been where you are, so I know firsthand how depressing it feels to try every workout and diet you read about, only to end up gaining weight, leaving you feeling even more hopeless after starving yourself and practically living in the gym. I over-exercised, lived in the gym, drank vegan shakes non-stop, yet was 40 pounds overweight.  

My 360° turnaround occurred when I worked at the WWF (World Wrestling Federation) as an apprentice alongside Dr. Fred Hatfield. Dr. Hatfield was doing research to test bodybuilding programs that included diet, exercise, and supplements to see what did and didn't work.

The results were shocking. Most of what I was doing to try to lose weight was all wrong. I worked out way too hard ,and for too long (a CrossFit kind of workout) — yes, that’s possible, and I ate too much healthy food — yes, that's possible as well.

The Top Mistakes I Made

I drank the wrong kind of protein shakes (I used to drink vegan), and like any gym rat, I drank a lot of them. I didn't realize that it wasn’t the right kind of protein for losing weight and boosting my sluggish metabolism. Besides, they tasted disgusting.

Vegan shakes are not a complete protein, meaning they lack the essential amino acids to be called complete and therefore will not have the metabolic boosting benefits of a high-quality Complete Whey Protein.

I lived on cereal bars. Like most moms, I need portable good-for-you food that I can eat on-the-go. What I didn’t realize was how little protein these tiny little bars contained, or how many carbohydrates and sugars they were filled with. To make a long story short, my health habits were killing my weight loss.

Combined with working out too long and too hard, I was ravenously hungry which sent me straight to my health halo foods. They only served to jack-up my sugar and stop my weight loss. In the end, it was an all day struggle with food.

I had my aha moment of what I was doing and got where I was when I was 40 pounds overweight (that’s a lot on my little frame). I needed to start doing things differently if I wanted to transform my body. This was how the Metabolic Boosting Weight Loss System was created. I needed a simple system that helped me to lose weight and develop healthier habits.

Collaboration With Dr. Hatfield

Everything I thought I knew about weight loss was all wrong. As I mentioned earlier, I learned that while working alongside Dr. Hatfield. 

We tested all sorts of programs from the American Heart Association Diet and Exercise Plan to the program the WBF (a division of the WWF called World Body Building Federation) was about to launch that was then called thermogenics. We also tested all of them against each other. Did they cause weight loss the way they said they would?

One of the companies/programs we researched, and I learned a lot about, was called Cybergenics. They explained what to eat and why, and how much and how long to work out. They also provided education on the smart use of safe supplements that helped the bodybuilders muscle up. So I asked myself, "why don’t we have the same type of system to help make losing weight faster and easier?" 

With the aid of Dr. Hatfield, who helped bring these formulas to life with the purest ingredients from the highest quality sources, the LynFit Metabolic Boosting System was born.

Dr. Hatfield was meticulous about combining the right kind of diet, utilizing very specific foods such as lean proteins and fibrous carbohydrates (now called a thermogenic diet) with the smart use of safe supplements to help keep the body properly nourished. More specifically, to help teach the body to burn off stored fat for fuel and to help balance blood sugar levels so hunger cravings wouldn’t overtake the participants while they were trying to lose weight.

Combined with the thermogenic diet were very specific weight lifting circuits, three times weekly (now called metabolic boosting workouts). I was blown away by what I witnessed. In all of my years of working in the gym business, I had never before seen such dramatic results. These were not gym rats. These participants were not fit at all and had no gym or dieting experience. They transformed their bodies, and their lives, in less than a month!

It wasn’t the first time I had seen people achieve results using diet and exercise, but it was the first time I saw people transform their bodies so quickly without living in the gym or adhering to vegan or no-carb diets. And, they did it in less than a month.

While working with Dr. Hatfield, I had the opportunity to rub elbows with some pretty big names in the bodybuilding industry. I made sure I was around them as much as possible, so I could look, listen and learn from them. I can tell you this, the pros work very hard, but interestingly, they spend less time in the gym than amateurs I know who kill their bodies in the gym while paying the physical price of damaged joints and chronic injuries. In the end, they also damage their self-worth and relationships because of their addictive dedication.

I've learned that not all diets and workouts are created equal. It’s just not as simple as calories in and calories out, especially if you have belly fat or you've been overweight. You need to choose your diet based on your goal, not according to which plan allows you to keep eating what you want when you want.

Some workouts and diets work better for weight loss, and others are better for bulk. How do you know? Your results tell all. Success leaves evidence.

How All This Relates To You

Most of us are very emotional when it comes to losing weight and getting fit, and that’s where we fall.

We know that exercise is a must because it strengthens our body, and it’s the best way to reshape, tighten, and tone it. But, it’s your diet that plays the largest role in your weight loss. In fact, 90 percent of your weight loss success comes from what you eat. You can't simply exercise away a bad diet.

Now that we have exercise in proper perspective choose your method of exercise based on science vs. what you want to do for the fastest results.

The good news is that when you see your body transform in front of your eyes and feel the difference, you’ll be hooked immediately. This will make sticking to the plan much easier, and that’s the key to lasting results.

For flexibility — choose Pilates or yoga. or better yet, LynFit Recovery Stretch
For rapid relief from aches and pains LynFit Recovery Stretch
For sports performance — CrossFit or LynFit Fat Blaster or Metabolic Boosting Workouts
For stubborn weight loss and transformation — When it comes to weight loss, lifting weights is must. But, it's important that you do it in a specific way to elicit metabolic changes vs. bulking up and gaining weight.

NOTE: Weight lifting and certain types of workouts have been proven to make you hungrier and cause stress levels to rise in the body, which makes losing weight impossible. If you're serious about losing weight before Christmas, you'll want to start doing three metabolic boosting workouts weekly. You'll need the right tools, so grab the LynFit Lose 1 Pound Per Day Kit.

Start Here

We all know that dieting stinks, so here is how to do it right. Just about every diet plan agrees with these three simple steps.

  • Focus on the power of Complete Protein — Make it your priority
    Complete proteins contain all the essential amino acids your body needs. You also want to choose the complete proteins that have a high PER (protein efficiency ratio). When it comes to losing fat and boosting your metabolism, the kind of protein you choose matters most. Lean Protein will feed the lean muscle tissue and starve the fat, so it leaves. Lean proteins are the best way to build your metabolism and force your body to burn fat. For results you can count on, check out LynFit Complete Whey Protein Shakes and Lean Bars.

  • Track the numbers that matter — Protein and Fibrous Carbs
    Aim for at least one gram per pound of lean body weight per day. Example: If you weigh 150 pounds, but you have 25 pounds of fat, your lean body weight would be 125 pounds. Your goal is to consume 125 grams of lean protein every day. However, you can’t eat it all at once if you’re trying to lose weight and melt fat. You should divide that 125 grams over the span of five meals so you're only consuming the amount of protein that your body can utilize vs. storing it as fat.

    Now that you know how much, here is the when. Space meals three hours apart. Begin at 7 a.m. and end at 7 p.m. You can find a complete guide in the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. The best choices when it comes to weight loss and melting fat are:

    Whey protein — It helps reduce abdominal fat better than any other kind of protein source.
    White fish — The lighter and whiter the fish, the better for your metabolism. Fish is lower in calories and fat and contains iodine that fuels thyroid function, which fuels your weight loss. White fish is the lowest in fat.
    *NOTE: Salmon is not white fish
    Turkey Breast — Turkey breast is lower in calories. When it comes to the nitty gritty of weight loss, every gram counts.

    NOTE: For more information on how much protein you need, and why fish is better, refer to "The Metabolism Solution".

  • Fill up on Fibrous Carbohydrates
    Fibrous carbs are the only food that can be considered unlimited. They burn more calories than they contain. When it comes to losing weight, it can be next to impossible to find foods that can help keep you on track. There are a few miracle foods however that are purported to be negative in calories. These foods essentially contain more water than they do calories and require more calories to utilize them than they hold. Thus, making these foods essentially calorie-free.

    Approximately 75 percent of a celery stick is water. The other 25 percent is fiber and other roughage. As a result, this tasty vegetable provides you with far fewer calories than it will take for your body to digest it. In addition to burning more calories than it contains, celery is an excellent source of fiber that can help to keep you feeling fuller for longer, helping you to reduce the urge to snack.

    The health benefits of celery don’t end at weight loss. Celery is full of nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. Further, celery has antioxidant properties that may be able to improve cardiovascular health, reducing your chances of developing hardened arteries (and related heart problems like heart attacks and cardiovascular disease). As a bonus, the fiber content promotes regular bowel movements as well as boosting digestive health more generally. There is even some evidence suggesting that a diet high in celery can improve the appearance of your skin.

    You can enjoy celery sticks on their own, or try lightly seasoning them with Mrs. Dash® salt-free instead of salt. You can also dip celery in hot sauce to make a spicy snack, or chop it up for a salad.

If you're truly serious about your weight loss, here is my personal Three-Step Plan to losing weight and developing healthier habits:

  1. Be brutally honest with yourself and clearly identify your bad or not-so-healthy habits. Then, eliminate those as quickly as you can. Write them down now.
    Here's my example — I needed to stop working out compulsively and learn to feel my feelings instead of turn to food. There I said it; it's not so bad. In fact, it feels good to say it. I also needed to choose the right kinds of food that cause weight loss vs. weight gain.

  2. Find replacements for your not-so-healthy habits and define your new healthier habits. Write them down now. Then, imagine how much better you'll feel. List all the benefits and rewards of adopting these habits to help inspire change.
    Here's my example — I needed a new doable workout that worked for weight loss that didn’t overwork me and jack up my appetite. I needed to grab and apple or a real protein bar that was lower in carbs and sugar instead of handfuls of trail mix or cereal bars that worked against me. I will feel better and learn to like myself more, and I won’t need to overwork in the gym because I’m eating better. 

  3. Create your Weight Loss Action Plan, starting with just one habit (no more than three) that you really want to implement. Write them down now.
    Here's my example — I will work out on an empty stomach for 30 minutes every day before work. I will drink my shake without adding extra calories (no fruit or almond milk), and take my supplements after I work out. I will drink my coffee black from now on. This was simple and doable, and the rest is history!

If you're serious about transforming your body and your life, focus on these three steps and begin to put them into practice. And remember, nothing will change until you do!

Getting Back On Track With Your Weight Loss



When it comes to weight loss, "tomorrow" is the most dangerous word in the English language. If you're serious about losing weight, and not seeing the results you'd like, it's time to stop living the way you've been living. The price you pay is very high for the cheap thrill that food gives you. In the end, it might even cost you your health. How you're living today directly affects your tomorrow. So, what will you do differently?

I receive emails seeking advice, all too often, from people with a habit of doing a week or two of strict, metabolic boosting eating and then falling off the weight loss wagon into a pile of cookies or store-bought protein bars. They want to know what they can do to stick to the plan, or should they even try. The first thing I tell them is the reason most people fall is that they think they need to be perfect with their eating. It's important to understand that perfection does not exist. 

Most of us fall because we become too legalistic about our diets. Rather, our diets should be treated as a habit of making better choices, requiring us to decide what our actions will be. This makes us responsible for our actions, and the outcomes.

You know the old saying; "If you keep doing what you've always done you'll just keep getting the same results. To expect anything different is the very definition of insanity." Quite honestly, there is a lot of insanity surrounding the foods that will keep you from reaching your goals. 

Have you ever told yourself; "I'll just have a little"? Sorry to say it, but that little bit is what's stopping you from reaching your goals. 

It's at these very times to remind yourself that perfection does not exist. Focus on daily progress, not daily perfection. You have more control than you think when it comes to making food choices. But if you keep falling off the wagon, it's possible you may need a few tools to help keep you on track.

These tools make losing weight faster and easier because they:

    • Help kill hunger and cravings that cause you to fall off-plan
    • Boost metabolism by 25 percent, so you burn more calories all day long, even while asleep. This is especially important when you decide to go off-plan because it will help keep you from gaining weight.
    • Block cortisol (stress hormones) levels from rising, which helps prevent weight gain in the belly, hips, and thighs. Blocking cortisol is more important than you think. Stress causes your body to produce excess cortisol levels, and the only way to melt belly fat is by reducing these levels. It's not an easy job and the very reason you need to attack belly fat with a 1, 2, 3 punch.

STEP #1: BOOST METABOLISM AND BLOCK CORTISOL LEVELS

Drink a LynFit Complete Protein Shake 12 hours after your last meal. Do not add fruit or any type of milk if you're trying to lose a pound a day. Remember, it's all about replacements and better choices, so swap out your high-sugar juice or yogurt for this instead. 

Looking for a delicious shake recipe that will not only tantalize your taste buds but rev up your metabolism as well? Look no further — here's my Melt Belly Fat Birthday Cake Smoothie:

(3 scoops) LynFit Vanilla Complete Whey Protein Powder
(½ cup) Water
(3–4) Ice cubes

Throw it all in the blender and mix until smooth and then drink yourself thin. The extra protein used will help keep you feeling fuller longer and won't spike blood sugar levels the way fruit and milk will.

STEP #2: KILL HUNGER AND CRAVINGS

Belly fat makes you hungrier, so the faster you lose it; the faster you'll be able to lose overall weight. You need to flip the hunger switch off and trick your body into acting like a thin person by teaching and encouraging it to burn fat for fuel instead of overwhelming you with hunger pangs. 

This is where the smart use of safe supplements comes in. If you don't struggle with hunger and cravings, you may not need supplements. But if you've been trying to lose weight, and no matter what you do you can't seem to stay on track because of hunger pangs and cravings, then you may need a little outside help.

Taking a supplement stack is the best way to keep your metabolism from slowing down while killing cravings and hunger pangs. This makes it easier to stay on track with your weight loss. The secret is they balance blood sugar levels while providing natural energy. 

This particular stack teaches your body how to burn fat as fuel when it needs energy vs. sending you hunger signals. Your metabolism will become a high-efficiency fat burning machine. Trust me, if you skip them, you'll see and feel the difference. 

The best time to take this stack is three hours after your last meal, when your body starts yelling, "I'm hungry!"

Sip green tea instead of indulging yourself in your usual snack and take your supplements to balance blood sugar levels instead. 

One note — This step is not good for people with less than 10 percent body fat because they will burn muscle for fuel instead of fat. But if you have body fat to lose you have energy stored that can be used instead.

Here is your supplement stack:
  • LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones to accelerate the process and trick your body into acting like a thin person. A lean person will burn fat more efficiently. (If you're highly sensitive to caffeine you may want to skip the Accelerator. The stack will still give you what you need, so follow the steps without Accelerator.)
  • LynFit Carb Edge with Forskolin to help enhance thyroid function and balance blood sugar levels, which is the secret to killing your cravings and managing hunger.
  • LynFit Cutting Edge to force your body to burn off that stubborn body fat for fuel.

    STEP #3: AVOID THE AFTERNOON ENERGY CRASH TO ESCAPE CRAVINGS BEFORE THEY BEGIN

    This step is critical because it will not only boost your metabolism, it will also help fight off those emotional cravings that we all battle in the afternoon when we start to get tired and our blood sugar levels begin to rise.

    This is actually where most people fall off the weight loss wagon. But, it's also where your weight loss battle can be won. I call this the "Emo Meal" — meaning emotional, when you're hungry, tired, and craving food.

    PREVENTION is the cure, so grab a LynFit Lean Bar to defeat the afternoon energy crash.

    The LynFit Lean Bar has 10 grams of prebiotic fiber and 15 grams of protein to kill cravings before they begin while helping to keep you feeling full. LynFit Lean Bars are guaranteed to be the best tasting protein bar you've ever tried and #1 in its class when it comes to weight loss and melting belly fat. Try one; you'll see.

    Most store-bought bars are full of sugar and don't supply your body with the right type or amount of protein. They spike blood sugar levels and prevent you from losing weight, despite what their labels may claim.

    Make LynFit Lean Bars your go-to comfort food from now on when trying to lose weight. Comfort in knowing you're making a smart, nutrient-dense food choice that doesn't sacrifice delicious taste and texture.  LynFit Lean Bars are the best of both worlds — they don't leave you with any guilt, only satisfaction that you'll begin to crave. You can eat your new comfort meal food with pride and get on with your day.

    This will be especially important if you're an emotional eater. Choosing the wrong kinds of snack foods can increase hunger and cravings and turn the weight gain switch on. Swap out those store-bought protein bars with a LynFit Lean Bar instead.

    Should you find yourself unable to suppress the urge to eat junk food, adopt the 80/20 rule. You're already following it; you just don't know it. 

    For the most part, you're eating your favorite foods every couple of weeks — it's inevitable. It's going to happen, and you should expect it. So, the best solution is to plan it ahead of time. If you plan for it ahead of time, you can cheat and still lose weight. Have a little pep talk with yourself. Sit down and tell yourself to try the 80/20 plan. 

    On the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan, you can eat on plan 80 percent of the time and go off the plan 20 percent of the time and still lose weight. That's the beauty of this plan. In fact, this is the only plan that takes into consideration that you live in the real world, you're human, and that you cheat once in a while.

    Planning in advance when you cheat also puts you in control of the binge vs. the binge controlling you. It also changes how you emotionally respond to a binge—no guilt, because it's all a part of your weight loss plan. You'll accept the situation, not struggle in vain against it. You'll eat less and know exactly what to eat, and how much. The scale will go up slightly, but you'll be back on track in no time. 

    Although there are physiological consequences to binging on junk food, I'd wager that most of the damage comes from the stress we inflict on ourselves—the internal fight and refusal, which only causes us to binge more. The refusal to accept the inevitable situation, combined with the guilt and shame you're piling on yourself for losing that fight.

    Here's what the 80/20 plan get you: Acceptance! You learn to accept things you cannot change. You're no longer fighting a battle you most likely cannot win. 

    I can't think of anything harder or more stressful than struggling with food. I've struggled with it my entire life until I learned about the 80/20 rule. 

    You can live guilt-free. Guilt about eating junk food can actually cause you to gain weight and depress your immune system. By making a plan to "go off" for a meal as an occasional (1–2 times weekly) deviation from your regular schedule, rather than betraying your body, you remove the guilt. Make a plan, if you plan on losing.

    I would encourage you to read this article I wrote previously about how to cheat and still lose weight to keep your metabolism in full swing, and how if you don't, it can alter the physiological effect it has on you. 

    As Kelly Clarkson says in her song: "Think Before You Cheat" so you don't hurt your health or destroy a month's worth of dieting. Most of the time it's not worth it anyway. 

    So, eat happily, just don't' forget to boost first! 

    Boost Your Metabolism Naturally

    Think that dream body isn't possible? Well, the secret is out. You can lose the weight and melt away belly fat in a fast and easy way. Make this year better than the last.

    How many times have you started a diet on Monday only to throw in the towel by Tuesday? Too many diets can be frustrating and difficult to stick to. If you have tried every fitness program and diet on the planet, from Paleo to juicing, or even the “gluten free” craze, you’ll want to try the Lose 1 Pound a Day Plan to boost your metabolism. It’ll help you melt stubborn fat and keep it off for good.

    WHAT IS METABOLISM?

    Metabolism is the process by which the body breaks down food to produce energy. When we 're young, it's easy to lose weight. We can diet and exercise and easily lose weight. However, as we age, it becomes increasingly more difficult to lose weight. Our metabolism creates the wrong environment for weight loss; such as intense cravings for the wrong foods, fatigue, lack of energy, mood swings and depression. We begin to rapidly pack on pounds, especially around our stomach, hips, and thighs. That makes it even harder to lose weight no matter how hard you try. Our weight gain switch gets stuck in the "On" position as we get older.

    By the time you hit 40 (for many of us this starts after graduating high school), our metabolism begins to slow down 5 percent every decade, making it practically impossible to lose weight. In fact, one out of three overweight people have a metabolic issue known as metabolic resistance that manifests itself through such conditions as pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, and haywire hormones that need to be addressed to lose weight—No matter how much time you're spending in the gym.

    The good news is that you have more control over your metabolism than you think and can control this metabolic nightmare.

    STEP #1:

    Eat thermogenically to recalibrate your appetite and switch your cravings to "off". It can be as simple as starting your day with LynFit Whey 12 hours after your last meal to boost metabolism by 25 percent while blocking cortisol. This makes it easier to burn off stubborn belly fat.

    Take (1) LynFit Accelerator to heat up your metabolism and accelerate weight loss safely and naturally.

    NOTE: Not all protein shakes are created equal. This specific whey is the most powerful whey when it comes to boosting your metabolism. It contains the exact amount of amino acids your body needs to feed the muscle, preventing your metabolism from slowing down while starving the fat, so it leaves. It also tastes delicious.

    LynFit Accelerator isn't your typical fat burner. It is a multi–ingredient approach that works quickly to reset your metabolism. Unlike single ingredient supplements that don’t work as well, LynFit Accelerator contains the pharmaceutical grade superstar ingredient, raspberry ketones, and contains an ingredient that blunts the hunger signal because it makes you feel full. You'll see and feel a difference in the same day. You won't find this quality on store shelves.

    For 30 percent faster results, empty the capsule into your shake.

    STEP #2:

    Burn the fat faster and easier by replacing your mid-morning snack with tea and take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge supplement.

    Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge with L-Carnitine immediately after your workout, or 1–2 hours after your Protein Shake for breakfast to persuade your body to burn fat by transporting fat into the cell, so it's guaranteed to be burned as fuel and not stored.

    LynFit Cutting Edge is also a multi-ingredient approach that science says is 20-times more effective than single ingredient supplements. It saves you time and money as well.

    This is my favorite because the complex in it also helps your brain make serotonin, so you feel good fast. If you’re already working out, you’ll want to take this before and after your workout to force your body to burn fat.

    STEP #3:

    Curb cravings and reshape your body by curbing your munchies before they begin. Munch on a green apple and take (1) LynFit Carb Edge supplement. Carb Edge enhances thyroid function that normally slows down when your trying to lose weight. It balances blood sugar levels that cause you to crave. This is also the trick to changing the shape of your body. You'll see your body lean out and trim down. Most people see results in the same week.

    NOTE:  LynFit Carb Edge also takes the multi-ingredient approach. It contains white kidney bean extract that blocks 65 percent of the unwanted carbs from being absorbed, so you eat more and absorb less.

    You’ll see a difference within the same week. What could be more motivating than that? Get started today!
