Enjoy Some Of Your Favorite Foods Without Gaining Weight



The secret to your weight loss success depends on what you do before and after you cheat. It's the off meals and cheats that determine whether you lose or gain weight. In today's world of overeating excess sugars, carbs, and fats. no one's weight stays the same without some sort of plan and system in place to guard against weight gain. The 5-day diet plan is perfect for anyone who has trouble sticking to a plan and needs to lose weight. It even allows you to enjoy some of your favorite foods without gaining weight.

The problem begins with underestimating guilty indulgences and telling yourself, "I only ate a little too much." That "little" bit can quickly add up to more than you think.

LYNFIT FACTOID: Did you know that most calorie trackers are off by 78 percent when it comes to caloric intake and expenditure? If you're not losing weight, underestimating your caloric intake, especially on cheat days, may be why.

______________________________

Believe it or not, cheat days can be part of a successful weight loss plan IF you follow a few specific steps. It can provide a metabolic and psychological boost, as well as stimulating your thyroid gland because it allows your body to get a break from the plan you’ve been sticking to all week. This upzig, a.k.a. cheat day principle can become a diet game-changer, allowing yourself the wiggle room to keep the weight off. This technique allowed me to lose 40 pounds and keep it off for over 20 years now.

Simply stated, follow your normal LynFit Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan for 5 days prior to your cheat day. Then you can upzig your diet, enjoying some of your favorite foods, without gaining weight.

Allowing myself a cheat day removed the guilt and shame that I was feeling, creating a vicious cycle of more binging and punishing myself. The secret is for you to control the food versus it controlling you!

Every diet out there will teach you how to eat, but they won’t show you how to cheat without wrecking your diet. Let’s face it…we’re all going to cheat every occasionally, so why not do it correctly, in a way that will benefit you? Cheating, the right way, can be your weight loss’ best friend if done correctly following these seven cheat day tips.

The LynFit metabolic boosting system is the only plan that's designed with reality eating and cheating, while still allowing you to lose weight.

#1: CHOOSE YOUR CHEAT DAY (a.k.a. UPZIGGING—A POSITIVE WAY TO INCREASE CALORIES)

Decide each week, ahead of time, which day you want to make your cheat day. This will give you something to look forward to, turning deprivation into delayed gratification. No one likes to be told they “can’t” have something, so knowing you only have to wait five days makes passing up the not-so-healthy foods easier. In other words, keep a cheat day schedule. Even though you may be taking a day off your diet, you still need that structure to help keep you safe in the same way guard rails on the highway help protect you and keep you inside the lines. 

#2: AIM FOR AT LEAST FIVE DAYS OF DIETING (a.k.a. DOWNZIGGING—INTERMITTENT FASTING)

Following your meal plan for five days will help fire up your metabolism. That way, you won’t gain weight when you go off-plan. A good recommendation is to cheat on either a Saturday or Sunday and hop right back on your plan the very next day. The younger you are (under age 30), you can get away with a lot more. As you age, your metabolism slows, and the margin for error is decreased. 

Downzigging lowers calories while boosting your metabolism. LynFit's system makes this easy.

#3: THINK LOW-CALORIE, CARB, & FAT FOR FIVE DAYS

Fats and carbs will always be the go-to food when you cheat, so decreasing them before you cheat is the best way to budget your calories. It also sets your body up to burn fat faster. It’s a great weight loss and fat-burning approach that’s beneficial for health and anti-aging. The easiest way to accomplish this is to replace two meals daily with Egg White Protein (provides the highest quality protein in the exact amounts needed, making it ideal for downzigging) or LynFit Whey Protein. Have one at breakfast and another at lunch to boost your metabolism by up to 25 percent, so your body is burning more calories. Protein also blunts insulin spikes and makes you feel fuller longer. 

#4: THINK BEFORE YOU CHEAT

Don’t let your cheat day turn into an all-out, all-day binge. Odds are, that if you need to lose weight, your food perceptions may be off, so it’s best to proceed with caution. Avoid eating with people who encourage gorging (their body weight will probably tell you everything you need to know) and don’t eat at locations that allow you to eat mindlessly. Often, eating in your car, eating while watching television, or eating while standing in front of the refrigerator can be danger zones. Don’t eat straight out of a bag or carton, and set some “selfie” rules, such as:

    • Sit down
    • Plate your food (a small plate is best)
    • Chew your food 60 times for proper digestion to occur
    • Put your fork down between bites
    • Don’t eat and talk

You want to focus on what you’re eating, so embrace every bite!

#5: DON’T SKIP MEALS TO COMPENSATE FOR YOUR CHEAT DAY

Skipping meals slows down your metabolism which is the last thing you want to do. You do, however, want to lower your daily caloric and fat intake. This is best done using the two LynFit Shakes to replace your current meals. This will keep your metabolism fires running hot. Drinking the shakes will also help to block the cortisol levels that can wreak havoc on your waistline. 

#6: YOU’VE GOTTA BOOST, BLOCK, & BURN

You have to convince your body to boost metabolism, block carbs and fats while burning off what you eat versus storing it as fat. LynFit Accelerator Advanced was born for this very reason! Take at least one (1) Accelerator Advanced first thing in the morning and then again at lunch. On your cheat day, take an additional Accelerator Advanced to help combat cravings and keep your metabolism fires blazing. It’s best to take 30 minutes prior to indulging to block the absorption of fats and carbs without harmful side-effects. 

Accelerator Advanced provides extra metabolic support through its thermogenic formula by boosting your metabolic rate and balancing blood sugar levels that help you lose weight faster and kill cravings for the wrong foods, while also preventing new fat cells from being formed. 

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

    • Raspberry Ketones — Supports appetite control and mood enhancement
    • Forskolin — Promotes thyroid health
    • Green Tea Extract —Supports and encourages calorie and fat-burning
    • L-Tyrosine — Helps reduce stress hormones in the body
    • Banaba Leaf Extract — Helps balance blood sugar levels
    • White Kidney Bean Extract — Helps block the absorption of carbs
    • Guggul Extract — Stimulates metabolism and lowers cholesterol
    • Cocoa Bean Extract — Helps suppress appetite and shed water weight

NOTE: It's a good idea to bump up and take two (2) additional Accelerator Advanced on your cheat day and the day after...or anytime you feel your body needs more.

#7: DETOX, CLEANSE, & RESTORE

Take (2-3) Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore once or twice daily as needed for digestion. This will help reduce belly bloat and waste build-up, so you’ll feel lighter and energized, even on your cheat day. This cleanse is very different than all the rest. It contains digestive enzymes that help you digest and assimilate your food, so you’ll have less gastric distress that can often occur when eating off-plan—you’ll suffer a lot less. 

Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore helps to jumpstart your metabolism and promote weight loss by removing unwanted toxins. The better your body digests food, the more your body will be able to absorb and fully benefit from the nutrients you’re feeding it. And the more nutrients you absorb, the less fat your body will store. Your liver will thank you!  

DON'T FORGET YOUR OTHER LYNFIT SUPPLEMENTS: Cheat day is the most important time to use all your other LynFit metabolic-boosting supplements. Don’t leave home without them. They will help boost, block, protect, and nourish—especially on your cheat day. You’d never take the race tires off a race car on race day, would you? So you shouldn’t stop using the weight loss tools that are particularly beneficial to you on not-so-good eating days. Take them with you…vacation, backyard barbecue, or the local restaurant. They just may well be a weight loss lifesaver!

Sometimes You Just Need The Right Tools To Spark Change

Have you ever heard the saying, "If you could do it yourself, you would have already"?

I think that's true to a point. And probably why you might still be struggling to lose that five, ten, fifteen or more pounds. You just may be doing the same things, but expecting different results, and that's more than likely not going to happen.

Sometimes, all you need are the right tools to spark that change. Losing weight is always easier with support!

As many of you know, I'm all about finding solutions to the toughest weight loss problems, so I'm a big fan of supplements. They make losing weight easier, especially when they are used correctly. We call this nutrient-partitioning in my world. 

Here are some of the ways that the strategic use of specific supplements can help you stop struggling and start losing the same day you start!

LynFit Thyro-Boost: This supplement helps reduce stress levels which can reduce the odds of emotional eating. Thyro-Boost also helps to balance and regulate hormones.

LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost: Taking in adequate Vitamin D can help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a form of depression that can make losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle harder. Vitamin D3 Boost will also help melt off stubborn belly fat.

LynFit Lean Sleep: A good night's sleep just makes everything easier, and LynFit Lean Sleep helps you do more than sleep better, it also works as a powerful antioxidant-boosting immunization, helping to regulate (reduce) belly fat because it helps reduce cortisol levels.

LynFit Pure Omega 3: It helps your body absorb the nutrients you take in, balances blood sugar, and boosts mood. When we feel better, we eat better. Omega 3 also helps decrease the inflammation that can cause aches, pains, and weight gain.

LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore: This two-in-in supplement helps improve digestion and restores gut health so you feel less bloated and your belly returns to flat. Have you ever noticed that when you feel thinner, you eat cleaner? There's a reason for that!

LynFit Accelerator Advanced: This two-in-one supplement naturally boosts metabolism, kills hunger and cravings, reduces blood sugar levels, and primes the body for maximum weight loss.

LynFit Cutting Edge: Cutting Edge helps the body to burn fat, reduces cellulite, and prevents new fat cells from being formed.

LynFit Daily Power Shot: Over 90 essential nutrients packed into one dynamite supplement that nourishes and protects your body by providing it every nutrient it needs to stay healthy while providing natural energy in the exact amount needed in a highly efficient, delicious liquid colloidal form.

Protein, Protein, Protein: Protein should be the #1 priority on everyone's list. Every good diet and weight loss plan should begin with the very best nutrition, and it doesn't get better than LynFit's premium whey protein found in LynFit Complete Protein, LynFit Complete Protein Advanced, and LynFit Lean Bars.

*NOTE: LynFit Nutrition is the only company who uses premium grade whey in their protein bars. It's the only whey to boost metabolism. A nourished, healthy body loses weight easier and craves less.

ADD EXERCISE

Improving physical fitness leads to a physiological reduction in stress levels which can also decrease emotional eating, make it easier to sleep and build confidence in every area of your life.

BELIEVING, BEGINNING, AND BECOMING

It's critical that you cleanse and detoxify your thoughts and replace them with believing, beginning, and becoming. If you don't have faith and believe you CAN do it, you'll never begin by taking that first step to becoming your very best.

As you can see, every area of your life directly affects all areas, and that's why a holistic approach works the best.

On the other hand, if you're one-of-those "I'll do it myself", "my way" people, and focus on eating cleaner and getting some exercise, your plan might work until......

The "until" could be something stressful happening, causing you to eat emotionally, and you don't have the right kind of food handy (Protein Shakes and Lean Bars). You could wind up frustrated and fall off your new leaner lifestyle.

Or, "until" could be winter coming or you're just not getting outside enough, causing you to feel sad and depressed. These bad mood slumps can wreck the best plans.

Maybe, "until" is when you can't sleep due to hormones or life, leading to chronic fatigue, which is lethal for weight loss because it makes it harder to prepare healthy meals. That is why we usually grab fast comfort food or extra caffeine.

You get the point  :)

There are thousands of "until" scenarios and each one set us up to fail. However, the solutions and tools help set you up for success and a healthy lifestyle change that can last a last a lifetime with continual ongoing success in every area of your life.

On a related note, it drives me crazy when people "think" they don't need supplements to lose weight. The smart use of specific supplements is the best way to guarantee that your body stays nourished and healthy, turning the weight gain switch to the off position while preventing the much feared metabolic shutdown.

If what you've been doing isn't working, it's time for a new way to lose weight. A metabolic boosting approach!

One piece I think you need to consider is the science of cleansing/fasting and the use of the right combination of supplements to promote lasting change.

Metabolic boosting cleansing (the smart way to fast) is at the heart of the Lose 1 Pound Per Day program because it's the key to losing weight fast, and safely. I went into detail about the correct way to cleanse in the blog article, "Cleanse Away Those Unwanted Pounds!" I encourage you to read the article and watch the accompanying video. I'm sure it will bring just the right amount of hope and encouragement. Hopefully, it will get you off your butt and on the road toward losing weight and melting fat off your belly, butt, and wherever else you may need it.

Cleanse Away Those Unwanted Pounds!


The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse has a clear-cut mission: Increase your metabolism, promote fat loss, and cleanse away that awful bloated, stuffed feeling. The core foundation of this simple, easy-to-follow plan is to encourage a healthier, more balanced, sustainable, leaner and cleaner lifestyle.

The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse is specifically designed to address the ten underlying causes of weight gain. Addressing these weight-gain factors upfront is the secret to your health and weight issues (including obesity), and they are almost always overlooked and not addressed by other juice cleanses and fasts.

#1: DETOXIFIES CLOGGED, TOXIC LIVERS

Livers that are clogged lack the nutrients needed to protect your health. When livers are clogged, they become loaded with toxins and cannot efficiently burn fat which can also stop you from losing weight.

#2: REDUCES THE STRESS HORMONES THAT ARE CAUSING YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT

Constant stress makes your adrenal glands over-produce cortisol which leads to the storing of belly fat and weight gain, preventing weight loss.

#3: REDUCES BLOAT AND WATER RETENTION

Not keeping your body hydrated, out of whack hormones, and food sensitivities (gluten and dairy among others) can trap water weight in your body and tissues, making you feel awful and mask weight loss.

#4: PROVIDES YOUR BODY WITH THE RIGHT KIND OF FATS TO HELP YOU BURN UNWANTED FAT

Most of us eat too many of the wrong kind of fats (coconut oils, avocado, Omega 6) and not enough of the right kind of essential fats like Omega 3. To make matters worse, we supplement with non-purified Omega 3 fats. You know the ones; the over-the-counter, cheaper brands that contain toxins that clog your liver and make you feel awful, yet fail to provide your body with the Omega 3 you need in the amounts needed for optimal health and promote fat loss.

Eating the wrong kind of fat is not only bad for you, making you unhealthy, it also prevents weight loss and blocks the body from burning off stored fat.

Did you know: 80% of Americans are deficient in the essential fats responsible for melting belly fat, brain health, reducing hunger and cravings, reducing and balancing blood sugar levels, and reducing inflammation (all "itis" conditions are caused by inflammation)?

#5: REDUCES AND BALANCES INSULIN LEVELS

It's not only the refined carbs like bread, wraps, rice, and pasta, but also some of "health" foods that contain harmful insulin spiking ingredients, including gluten (yes, it's everywhere). Juicing or eating excessive fruits, or eating the wrong kind of fruits that spike insulin levels, will stop your body from burning off stored fat. 

#6: IMPROVES GUT AND INTESTINAL FLORA AND RESTORES THE MISSING GUT MICROBES

Most cleanses simply strip your body and throw gut flora out of balance. The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse does clear out the toxins and bad stuff but replaces and restores the good guys that you want to hang around in your gut for optimal health and faster easier weight loss.

Countless studies agree that your health and weight loss are linked to your gut microbes. Gut microbes (intestinal flora) play a significant role in your metabolism and fat-burning. Your bacterial eco-system helps to control your weight, cravings, and hunger. This cleanse plan works better than any other cleanse or diet for this very reason. It not only cleanses and detoxes but more importantly, it also improves and restores gut health thanks to the LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse and Restore, leaving your body better than it was before. You’ll feel better, look better, and your clothes will be loose again.

#7: IMPROVES DIGESTION

Poor digestion affects every aspect of your health, especially weight loss. A sluggish metabolism is often a sign of sluggish impaired digestion, which is why frequent cleansing is so important for all of us.

This cleanse doesn’t destroy digestion the way other cleanses can; it improves it by improving the quality of bile that’s produced. Poor quality bile keeps your body from digesting fats which impact weight gain because what’s not digested is stored as fat and clogs up your system.

Impaired digestion also depletes your body of the benefits you receive from the good fats like the LynFit Pure Omega 3 delivers. Without the benefits of good fats, your memory can suffer. In fact, it affects everything; you’ll notice low energy, memory loss, aches, pains, lackluster hair, skin, and nails. These are all signs that your digestive system needs a boost, and that’s exactly what you'll get when you do this cleanse!

#8: BOOSTS SLUGGISH THYROID FUNCTION

Anyone older than 35 (for some overweight individuals, this happens at a much younger age) struggles with low thyroid function, which decreases your metabolism (it's why you start gaining weight for no reason). Even worse, it can cause your body to overproduce insulin, which is why anyone with hypothyroidism, post and pre-menopausal women, and even men after a certain age struggle to lose weight and melt off that stubborn body and belly fat (love handles). 

Sadly, it gets worse. Elevated insulin also causes intense cravings for carbs and the wrong kind of food that deter your weight loss. It's a vicious cycle until you stop and reboot your system.

You're gonna love LynFit Thyro-Boost! It helps all of this because it's full of natural, adaptogenic herbs that help where needed. And, it won't hurt you if it's not needed, so you can take it safely even if you're on medications.

#9: DEBUGS YOUR SYSTEM

The same way your computer act negatively when they get bugs and viruses, your metabolism and body are the same. That’s why it's critical to debug your system frequently. Researchers believe that bugs and parasitic developments in our bodies may be partly responsible for the obesity epidemic and insulin resistance; including Type 2 Diabetes.

The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse specifically address this issue by decreasing the bad bugs and increasing the good ones that help keep the bad guys away. 

#10: BOOSTS MAGNESIUM AND OTHER IMPORTANT NUTRIENT LEVELS 

Nutrition plays a huge role in weight loss and vibrant health. This metabolic boosting cleanse takes that very seriously; that’s why it's full of magnesium, the superstar nutrient that's responsible for turning food into fuel, hence the reason it keeps your system regular. Without enough of the right nutrients, you lack a critical component that flips the fat burning switch on and operating efficiently.

So, in simple terms, what really makes the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse different than every other cleanse?

The answer to that is as simple as it gets! Lets's review:

You can continue to eat and live in the real world while not slowing down your metabolism.

It nourishes and restores your body's gut flora vs. destroying it, so it nourishes your body from the inside out leaving you feeling better than before without harming you in the process. You also won't need to worry about being close to the bathroom like you do with other cleanses  :)

This Cleanse nourishes and restores instead of being harsh and stripping nutrients away, depleting your body of essential nutrients as other cleanses may do.

With the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse, you get to eat a healthy meal each day and eat real food vs. processed yucky powdered stuff that tastes terrible and lacks nutrition.

It's a quick-start, modified liquid fast and detox where you will see significant results within 48 hours. This sets the stage for fat loss with the strategic use of specific metabolic boosting, natural supplements that cleanse, lower blood sugar, and boost thyroid function that prevents the metabolic shutdown that can occur when calories are lowered.

The best part? Enjoy delicious, metabolic boosting, cortisol lowering smoothies, slimming soups, and salads, made with thermogenic spices and good-for-you fats.

This is a cleanse you can live on that promotes fat-burning and restores your system.

So declare out loud to the universe that you're willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy and get ready for the new, leaner you.

At LynFit, we believe the secret to your success is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable ones and then starting on the first one. So we put together a list for you to follow to help get you started.

STEPS THAT GUARANTEE YOUR WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS

  1. Read through the plan and make notes. Make a note of what you think will be difficult for you and a solution to it, as well as what you think will be easy for you.
  2. Write down your goal and post it all over your house to remind yourself why you started in the first place
  3. Weigh yourself and take a before photo (say good-bye to the struggle)
  4. Throw all of the junk "non-food” out of your house. You can’t eat it if it’s not there  :)
  5. Make a list and go shop for what you need. No time to shop? Have it delivered right to your door.
  6. Eat foods from the approved food list only
  7. Surround yourself with like-minded, positive people who share your dreams and desires. Sometimes family can be the worst when it comes to transforming your bad habits. In fact, often they are your partner in crime, and you’ll need to remind them that you love them more than ever, but you need to take care of yourself. Invite them to join you, but don't force them. Ask them politely not to bring trigger foods into the house, and provide them with ways they can help you stay on track. A little communication goes a long way here.
  8. Try to eat between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m., making certain there is at least three hours in-between meals to help lower blood sugar levels and promote cleansing. Your body can't cleanse if you're always eating.
  9. Drink at least ten glasses of water each day. Here's an easy-to-follow plan: One glass when you wake up, one per hour, and one before bed.
  10. Eat your veggies and only one fruit daily. Your daily goal is five cups of veggies and one ½ cup serving of fruit. Here's your plan: Add ½ cup of fruit to your morning smoothie, two cups of veggies with your lunch shake, two more at dinner, and add one serving as a snack, and you did it. You’ll feel fuller longer, and you'll be cleansed and healthy. (See the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and Detox Plan for simple, delicious recipes)
  11. Be sure to have your two shakes daily. This is how you'll melt off the pounds and nourish your body, including your hair skin and nails.
  12. Sleep leaner. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep nightly to help reduce cortisol levels and allow your body time to recharge. If sleep is an issue, take a 20-minute nap during the day with your feet up. Rest quietly if you can't sleep.
  13. Take your supplements regularly. Supplementing is the best way to ensure your success, so make sure to take your supplements as directed in the Plan, even if you think you don’t need them. Each one serves a specific purpose, and the most important is keeping you healthy. Set a timer on your cell phone and carry them with you wherever you go so you don’t miss a dose It's better to take your supplement late than not at all. Drop all other supplements during the cleanse for best results. Many supplements leave residue in your system that needs cleansing.
  14. Emotional cravings making it tough? Have a cup of hot tea or broth, or call a friend. In the program, we say, “Change a thought, move a muscle.” Distract yourself by taking a walk or stretching. Whatever you do, get out of the kitchen. Helpful tip: Brushing your teeth always helps.
  15. When in doubt don’t! Instead, have another Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar. Think, “Eat clean to be lean” vs. not eating and end up binging.
  16. Embrace hunger, it’s a good sign. Don’t be afraid of it; it means your cleanse is working and your body is about to burn off stored fat. Once your body figures out that it’s the stored fat you want it to use, it will begin burning fat off, and the hunger will dissipate.

 Remember, if it doesn’t challenge you it can't change you, and it will never get easier. But you will get better at doing what it takes!

What about exercise? Weight loss is 90 percent diet and only 25 percent sweat equity, so during the cleanse it's best to focus on the cleanse and minimize exercise. Some exercise programs can increase hunger and cravings and jack up cortisol levels, which is counter-productive.

While cleansing, it's best to focus on the healthiest forms of exercise that won't make you hungrier or increase stress hormones. Enjoy it; it won't be long before you're exercising again and seeing results, thanks to this cleanse.

Walk 10,000 steps every day. Walking after your last meal and before your first shake is a great way to help your body detox and offset the symptoms you may experience while your body is detoxifying.

Stretch every day. Stretching keeps your body working order and helps your body eliminate waste. Try the LynFit Recovery Stretch; it’s the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day or start your day off right.

Ten minutes of light weight lifting or the LynFit Lean Core workout is okay; just go easy, so you don’t interfere with the cleansing process or place larger nutritional demands on your body. This is about rebooting and healing.

How long should I cleanse? We suggest two weeks, but this plan is so efficient you can do 1-2-3 weeks or as many as you choose. The more weight you have to lose, the more you may need to cleanse.

Each Cleansing Kit lasts a minimum of two weeks, and most of the supplements last for 30 days, but many people prefer to have more than two shakes daily or make the desserts in the Complete Protein Recipe Guide, so you might want to pick up an additional Complete Protein Shake. It never hurts to have extra on hand for those "what should I eat moments."

AFTER THE CLEANSE

If you lost all the weight you wanted and feel thoroughly cleansed, your body is now ready to burn fat. Progress to the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. If you feel you need to do another two weeks, that's fine as well. This cleanse is so good for you that you can use it as a way of life. A lot of clients cleanse 4-5 days a week and allow themselves to have an "off" meal or two, depending on their metabolisms. 

So, what are you waiting on? Go ahead; you can do it. Today you just became stronger than your excuses. 

BELIEVE. BEGIN. BECOME.

Jump-Start Your Weight Loss With A Metabolic Boosting Cleanse


CleanseIf you're thinking about starting your weight loss with a juice cleanse, think again. While juicing may be the most popular way to jump-start weight loss, it's not the best way; especially when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. What you don't know about juicing could STOP you from losing weight and may actually be harmful to your health.

You never hear of anyone "living" a cleansing lifestyle, yet we all know intuitively that we need to eat healthier. That's what makes juicing so attractive - it's considered a quick fix. We've all been there; sick and tired of being sick and tired and know we need to change our situation, so we try to do the right thing and jump into a juice cleanse because every good diet starts with a cleanse - right?

Within the first few days, our energy disappears, and our body starts to fight against us. We feel cranky and weak, and before you know it, the cravings begin, and we have to run to the bathroom every few minutes; praying we make it in time.

Most cleanses, especially those that include juicing, aren't good for your body, don't help you lose weight long-term, and don't burn fat off your body. And, if you can't burn fat, you'll look the same, even if you have lost some weight.

So, is juicing good for you at all? The real problem with juice cleansing is that it deprives your body of healthy fats and other essential nutrients your body requires to operate. This makes you feel terrible and can also cause you to lose that hard-earned muscle, which in turn slows down your metabolism, making it even harder to lose weight or maintain what you have lost.

Why? It's due to the decrease in calories, which causes your thyroid to slow down, making it impossible to burn fat. This will amplify your symptoms of fatigue and weakness, and can even cause permanent hair loss. Those seemingly innocent cleanses can also wreck havoc on your pocketbook.  :)

I can hear you asking now, "But how; juicing has so many healthy ingredients?" 

Let's be honest; if you like the juice you're drinking, the odds are it's because it's full of sugar. Even though the sugar might be from fresh fruit, it's still sugar, and your cells don't know the difference. And, when it comes to your veggies, it's always better to chew your food. Chewing is more satisfying to the senses.

You may think you're getting a few vitamins and minerals, but the blood sugar rise isn't worth it. Besides, you're not getting as many vitamins and minerals as you think. The lack of essential fats prevents nutrients from being absorbed. 

FATTENING FACTS ABOUT JUICING

It takes 2-4 pounds of vegetables to make one (1) 16-ounce juice. If you chewed those same vegetables, it would take you days vs. that quick sugar hit. You're bathing your cells in liquid sugar when juicing like that.

A 16-ounce mixed vegetable and fruit juice (like the one you would order at Whole Foods) with beets, carrots, kale, cucumbers, apples, spinach, and celery packs about 400 calories and over 50 grams of blood sugar spiking sugar!

This excess sugar is not only stored, but it can also gather in your liver, clogging it (Isn't that why we cleanse in the first place?). It also gathers in our muscles and leads to insulin resistance, making weight loss practically impossible.

While you might get ½ of your daily requirement of Vitamin A when juicing, most people forget that Vitamin A is fat soluble; meaning it needs to be consumed with a fat if you want your body to absorb it efficiently. One-third of these liquid sugar calories are stored as fat.

This is a nightmare for diabetics, pre-diabetics, and people who struggle with Gout. It increases Gout due to the toxic acids like uric acids that are formed when our liver metabolizes fructose.

Juicing has also been known to elevate triglycerides, due to the insulin spikes, and raise blood pressure.

Bottom line: Juicing is never a good idea for weight loss and is better used for weight gain.

In my Sports Nutrition line of work, raising blood sugar is the oldest trick in the book for getting underweight people to gain weight. Give them a glass of juice, and they will eat more later. (*Note for wine drinkers: Alcohol works the same way.)

There is a smarter way to cleanse that boosts metabolism, making it easier for you to lose weight, and this cleanse melts fat!

To lose weight, you need the following nutrients:

Lean Protein to boost metabolism by 25 percent and preserve lean muscle tissue, which is responsible for keeping your metabolism revved and your moods and hormones balanced. It will also help to keep you feeling fuller longer while feeding your hair skin and nails. It's the secret to looking good and feeling great.

Essential "good for fat loss" fats like Omega 3 to help transport nutrients like Vitamins A, D, and K; among many others like the B lean vitamins that are critically important for metabolic health.

These "good for you" fats help transport the nutrients into the cells where they are utilized. These nutrients do more than boost weight loss. They are responsible for nervous system and bone health, as well as hormone production, cell membrane formation, regulation of heart rate and blood pressure; all while providing energy.

A nourished body is a healthy body, and a healthy body loses weight easier, especially if you're metabolically-challenged (have a hard time losing weight).

There is a better solution that helps jump-start weight loss faster and promotes the burning of fat, which is really what you want. It's also more affordable and delicious, so you just might decide to have one every day, making for a healthier, leaner lifestyle.

The good news is this metabolic boosting, cleansing, detox cocktail does much much more. Everyone should be doing this for health, especially if you're trying to lose weight and burn fat.

Here is your new metabolic boosting cleansing morning ritual that breaks the overnight 12-hour fast, which is why it needs to provide the essential nutrients your body needs. No more and no less.

Every good smoothie starts with the best ingredients. Prioritize protein, using Non-GMO Whey to feed muscle and skeletal tissue, boost metabolism by up to 25 percent, block cortisol (stress hormones) that cause belly fat and stop weight loss, boost mood and brain health, all while nourishing hair skin and nails.

Whey alkalizes your body and aids in the detox process without making you feel terrible.

Add in the right detox boosters that nourish better without all of the sugar and calories.

Why add detox-boosting super foods? You would have to juice over 30 pounds of produce, and you still wouldn’t come close to the nutrition found in certain super foods (found in LynFit Thyro-Boost). 

Studies show that these super food ingredients play a critical role in promoting health and wellness. They encourage your body’s natural cleansing process, helping to flush a wide variety of substances out of your body; especially heavy metals and pesticides, among other disease-causing substances (this is why we cleanse).

Further, they help control hunger, cravings, and body odor, and encourages healing, protects against cancer, and the ravages of treatment, while helping to fight against the growth of candida (also a known cause for fatigue and cravings). 

These super power foods also possess an amazing range of benefits because they contain the highest amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients needed for cardiovascular, muscular, and neural health; not to mention the Ashwagandha, that helps your body combat stress, keeping your cortisol (stress hormones) levels in check.

When you take them in liquid extract form (like in LynFit Thyro-Boost), nutrient uptake is increased, meaning they are more easily soaked up. Nutrients like iodine, among others, build up your thyroid and body, giving it the fuel it needs to send thyroid hormones throughout your entire body, stopping your metabolism from slowing down.

Everyone needs to consider taking this, even if they are not hypothyroid. This liquid extract supplement is an adaptogen, meaning your body will use it if it needs it, and won't if it doesn’t, so it does no harm.

Feeding your thyroid is like fertilizing your garden; it helps everything move a little faster and become healthier. (*Note: If you’re not hypothyroid it’s still a good idea to take LynFit Thyro-Boost. You’ll just need to take it once vs. twice a day.)

The best part about this supplement is that it’s safe to take, and actually suggested along with your medication. Be aware that your medication may work more efficiently after cleansing and using super foods so that you may need less. Be sure to tell your doctor so he or she can adjust the amount you’re taking.

Don’t let the name Thyro-Boost fool you. It’s called Thyro-Boost because it helps feed and nourish the thyroid, which is the master gland of your body. Feed it right, and it takes care of your overall health.

You'll get:

  • Protein
  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B2
  • Vitamin B3
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Iodine
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Manganese
  • A balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids

Plus, rich sources of antioxidants from super foods in the form of extracts, which are more potent, like:

  • Chlorophyll
  • Ashwagandha
  • Nettles
  • Black walnut
  • Spirulina
  • Shepard’s purse
  • Irish moss
  • Dulse
  • Forskolin
  • Tyrosine
  • Astralagus

The most important thing to remember when you decide to cleanse or fast is to DO NO HARM FIRST! That means providing your body with what it needs to stay healthy first. This is the best way to jump-start your weight loss and keep it off.

The truth is - every really good diet is a cleanse in disguise!

Cleanse And Detox To Jump Start Your Weight Loss

LynFit Cleanse and Detox

I'm not going to tell you that you need to do ten minutes of push-ups for every two bite-sized Snickers® you ate, or seven minutes of running for every fun-sized KitKat's® you tasted. Or, that it takes five minutes of sit-ups to begin burning off the small bag of Sour Patch® or Starburst® you had to sample.

Halloween isn't spooky at all compared to what our little indulgences cost us. That's the scary part! Sadly, Halloween is the "I only eat a little, once in a while" that is most likely stopping you from losing weight.

What's even scarier or more horrifying is the profound impact these little tastes have on us. I'm a taster as well, so no judging here. I struggle unless I follow my plan. In fact, I have to live on the Accelerated Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan due to my fast paced life and my need to take small tastes.

These little indulgences (you know, the ones that never get written down in your journals) and these small bites we only have once in a while (who are we kidding?) wreak havoc on our blood sugar levels and cause damage to our metabolisms over time. They are almost always what keep us from reaching our goal weight. Most people don't realize how sensitive our blood sugar is.

Most people don't realize how sensitive our blood sugar is. Here's a good way to think about it — Visualize a glass full of crystal clear water. Now, add just one drop of food coloring to that glass of clear water. Yep, the entire glass becomes tinted red. Pretend that each little taste is another drop of food coloring. It's not going to take very long for that crystal clear glass of water to become clouded and completely colored because of the drops (tastes). 

It becomes very evident that our little bites every once in a while have a more profound and cumulative effect than we might want to admit.

So, how do you know if your blood sugar levels are out of whack? Well, that's an easy test. If you can pinch more than an inch (and you know what I mean) your blood sugar is showing you evidence that your body is in need of a corrective type of diet; a metabolic boosting cleanse. 

I see and talk to people every day who are not aware that their high blood sugar issue makes their metabolism resistant to losing weight, despite the countless diets, workouts, and doctor's visits. The reason? The underlying issues (blood sugar levels) are never addressed.

However, I've got great news for you — you have more control than you realize. But, you need to be honest with yourself about how often you eat only a little of the not-so-good-for-you foods. And you know all too well there's a vast difference between a little bit of celery vs. a little bit of that cheese that destroys waistlines and weight loss.

Before I go any further, I also want to share a little bit of tough love with you. It's the same tough love I give to myself practically every day to strengthen my willpower muscles. Print it out if you have to and put it on your refrigerator or some other place where it stares you right in the face when you feel your willpower weakening.....

THINGS WON'T GET ANY EASIER OR CHANGE UNTIL I CHANGE!
I NEED TO BECOME STRONGER THAN MY EXCUSES!

Enough said.....

Start right now by throwing out all the trigger foods (the ones you can't stop eating) and start this metabolic boosting cleanse.

This is the only cleanse specifically designed to lower blood sugar levels, and that's why it's the only cleanse that is called metabolic boosting. Unlike juicing and juice cleanses, it lowers blood sugar levels, which is the secret to losing weight and lasting weight loss. More importantly, melting or burning off fat. After all, we don't want just to be lighter; we want to be leaner too.

If you've been struggling to lose weight and no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to lose weight because your sweet tooth and cravings are out of control, it's time to reboot your metabolism and detox your taste buds and your body in order to win this fight. Anyone can lose 1–3 pounds daily on this metabolic boosting cleanse, no matter how sluggish your metabolism is if you follow the plan. It works every time if you work it.

Healthy Snacks To Help Relieve Chronic Pain


Chronic pain affects 1.5 billion people worldwide. More people are affected by chronic pain than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined. The good news is that what you eat can help relieve chronic pain symptoms and inflammation. 

Food can either make or break you when it comes to pain and inflammation. If you're one of those people like myself who is genetically predisposed to pain at the slightest touch, you need to know the foods that encourage pain and inflammation to flare and those that fight pain and inflammation.

Let's take a look at just a few of the foods that encourage inflammation and should be consumed in moderation—every four days, maybe. You don't have to eliminate them completely from your diet, but I would detox from them for 21 days and then re-introduce them back into your diet to diagnose cause and effect. 

  • Gluten and pretty much any grain
  • Tomatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Peppers
  • Red meat
  • Dairy

Now, let's talk about some good news and introduce you to  foods that help relieve chronic pain and inflammation. 

  • Salmon — full of Omega 3. If you're not a fish eater, get a good clean Omega 3 supplement such as LynFit Pure Omega 3.
  • Walnuts
  • Turmeric
  • Cinnamon
  • Whey protein mixed with Green tea, strawberries, honey, or peanut butter (for complete recipes refer to The Metabolism Solution)
  • Dark chocolate

The bottom line is that by making a few changes in your diet, you can help offset pain and inflammation.
