Fasting For Spiritual Renewal - Not Just For Weight Loss

Fasting
Wanna know the REAL LynFit difference? Unlike other weight loss programs, we deal with weight loss "from the inside out". That's where the biggest changes need to be made, and where the root of many problems are. Dealing with weight loss in this manner is the best for lasting weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try to focus on good and positive things all you can see is the bad. Seeing nothing but bad eventually leads us to focusing on self-centeredness, unable to hear our own inner voice. Fasting is more than just not eating meat on Fridays. Fasting is a way to leave behind that physical pain, those bad thoughts, that self-centeredness. Fasting removes our dependency from all things that block our sensitivity to the spiritual.

I want to take you on a little journey to give you a glimpse into my "why" when it comes to living a Leaner Lifestyle, even after I reached my goal weight. For me, and I'm guessing there are many others of you who would agree, reaching that goal weight was just the beginning. Weight loss was the physical renewal that was visible to everyone. The REAL renewal was what took place on the inside. Those deepest darkest places that no one else could see. That renewal was a spiritual renewal. No, not a religious renewal that was tied to a certain set of doctrinal beliefs or a religious denomination. Rather a true deep-rooted spiritual renewal that was directly tied to my personal relationship with a very personal God. A relationship that allows me to live a life of clean eating to honor my body rather than junking it up.

The Metabolic Boosting: Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan (found in "The Metabolism Solution") fits perfectly with fasting lifestyles, making it easier to stick to your fast regardless of your religion. This in turn allows you to concentrate on the reason why you're fasting in the first place, keeping your body and mind healthy so you can focus on the more important things in life - renewing your spirit and not just focusing on your body.

For me, fasting brings deeper meaning to my life and helps me to hear God's voice more clearly, allowing me to live according to His will. In short, it brings clarity to my life. At my church, Northeast Community Church, we fast together as a community and as individuals. I would love for you to join with me this week spending time reading, reflecting and praying using this Daily Spiritual Renewal Guide (You may print the guide out directly from the link. Special thanks to Northeast Community Church for content).

Make sure you break your fast in as clean a way as possible by referring to the clean recipe in the Renewal Guide for the last day. Your system will have been purified and your spirit renewed. Let's not "junk" it right back up with heavy eating to only weigh you right back down again.

I am thrilled that you're taking this journey of spiritual renewal with me. I can't wait to hear your stories of how God worked in and through your life. I challenge all of us to dig deep and lose that excess baggage we've been carrying around. And not just of the unwanted physical weight variety.

For more information about fasting and weight loss refer to "The Metabolism Solution: God and Your Bod".

Note: During a time of fasting it's a good idea to decrease your workouts

Naturally Boost Your Metabolism To Jump Start Your Weight Loss

Many of you emailed me after watching Janine's before and after story on Better TV asking me how you can naturally boost your metabolism to jump start your weight loss. So, for those who have not yet seen it, I wanted to show you that segment that inspired thousands of people to make the life changing decision to lose weight for good. Congratulations to all of you who have already lost 20 or more pounds since seeing the segment and if you need this type help please contact me to get your weight loss jump started.

If you've ever felt like trying to lose weight is just more difficult for you than for other people, or you've been gaining and losing weight your whole life and haven't successfully kept if off, then this if for you. I'm going to teach you how to naturally boost your metabolism to jump start your weight loss so you can safely lose those pounds.

How do you know if you need to be aggressive when it comes to boosting your metabolism?

      • Have you been 15-20 pounds or more overweight for more than 5 years?
      • Are you more than 40 years old?
      • Do you struggle with hypothyroid or thyroid conditions that affect your weight?
      • Are you diabetic or pre-diabetic?
      • Do you eat healthy and exercise regularly yet still can't lose weight?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions it may take an aggressive approach to get your body to lose weight. Here is the plan that helped Janine lose weight. She was 85 pounds overweight and we needed to boost her metabolism aggressively to jump start her weight loss. Doing so allowed her to lose 1 pound a day. Seeing those immediate results made it easier for her to stick to her plan.

STEP ONE: METABOLISM MAKEOVER

Follow the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse to quickly recalibrate your appetite, which will also switch your cravings to "off". This "heat up" of your metabolism will also block cortisol levels which helps melt belly fat. This is called thermogenic eating and is described in detail in "The Metabolism Solution".

Further boost your metabolism by having a Whey Complete Protein Shake EXACTLY 12 hours after your last meal. This will not only boost your metabolism 25% by feeding muscle which burns more calories but also starve the fat so it leaves.

For 30% faster results, empty the contents of the LynFit Accelerator capsule into your Protein Shake. It contains an ingredient that blunts the hunger signal because it makes you feel full.

NOTE: When it comes to supplements it's not only the ingredients that matters, it's also the quality of the ingredients. The higher the ingredient quality the more effective if will work and you'll see results faster. The right supplement with the highest quality ingredients will make losing weight easier. In order to guarantee these results you must use LynFit products. While I'm not saying that LynFit supplements are the only ones that will work, I can only speak to the quality of my products and their ingredients. I know many people who have tried inferior products with inferior quality and they did not see results.

STEP TWO: BURN THE FAT


Just because we've heated up your metabolism and you're now eating thermogenically doesn't mean your body is automatically going to burn fat. To start the fat burning, replace your mid-morning snack with tea and (1) LynFit Cutting Edge. Quite honestly, most of us aren't even hungry at that time; we're just programmed to eat. The Cutting Edge has an ingredient, L-Carnitine that lures fat into the cell and persuades your body to burn it as fuel. So as your metabolism is beginning to take a nose dive 3 hours from Step #1, we've now spurted it back up again.

STEP THREE: RESHAPE YOUR BODY

Just because you lose weight doesn't mean you're going to look fit. I'm sure you've seen people who have lost a lot of weight and they have really just become a smaller version of their original self. That's why we need to also reshape your body.

Curb your munch hour cravings by munching on a green apple and taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge every afternoon. Why a green apple? It's lower in sugar while at the same time shutting off your sweet craving by satisfying it without wanting more. The Carb Edge helps lower and balance blood sugar levels, which cause us to crave, while enhancing thyroid function. It also contains Forskolin which helps your body burn more fat as fuel.

You'll notice that I haven't said anything about exercise. For Janine, I only had her walk and stretch because she was in so much pain and I wanted her to know that when her food was on track or clean enough she could still lose weight without exercise. That being said, you can and should, be doing the metabolic boosting exercises only while trying to lose weight, as other forms of exercise can interfere with your weight loss.

Are you ready to Lose 1 Pound Per Day?

If Your Workout Doesn't Say Metabolic, It Isn't!

When it comes to weight loss not all workouts are created equal. Let's face it, anytime you're exercising versus sitting on the couch it's a good thing. But what you might not know is that there are specific ways you can exercise that double your weight loss results in ½ the time.

You don't need an expensive gym membership or any fancy equipment for that matter. The fastest, most effective way to tone, tighten and firm your body is by doing metabolic exercise. How do you know if your workout is metabolic? Simple; if it doesn't say metabolic, it isn't.

If you're not seeing visible results within one week and losing 3-4 pounds a week then your workout isn't doing its job. Keep in mind too that diet is 90% of your weight loss success. I'm sure you've heard me say this a thousand times but I'll remind you again - a LynFit Complete Protein Shake makes you lose a pound a day!

That being said, I'll show you what differentiates a workout that boosts metabolism versus cross fit style "kill yourself" workouts that raise your cortisol levels which stop fat loss. Yoga/Pilates style workouts? Too easy. Metabolic workouts fall right in the middle so your body burns fat at an elevated rate all day long.

That's the best way to boost your metabolism so you lose more weight and flatten your abs while tightening and toning thighs versus bulking up.

Are you ready to change your body? No more excuses! Take the 7-Day Challenge and watch your body change in one week. Add 30 minutes of cardio daily and you'll turbo-charge your results.

Day One: LynFit Metabolic Boosting Workout 1
Day Two: LynFit Lean Core
Day Three: LynFit Fat Blaster
Day Four: LynFit Recovery Stretch
Day Five: LynFit Metabolic Boosting Workout 2
Day Six: LynFit Lean Core
Day Seven: 60 minutes of cardio (walking or biking inside at a constant pace)

Repeat for 21 days to form this into a habit!

*If you haven't been working out start slow. Do ½ the amount of work.

The research shows that metabolic workouts are two times more effective than typical gym workouts. Do your own research and get ready for the new leaner stronger you. Remember that your bones require two strength training sessions weekly. They'll thank you for it!

Back To Basics To Boost Your Metabolism

Every now and then you just gotta "shake things up" if you're serious about losing weight. You can't be afraid to get a little hungry either. That's how we force our bodies to burn off that stubborn belly fat. If you're sick of feeling fat and flabby and ready to lose that excess weight you put on this winter, in addition to melting that stubborn belly fat, then the Slimmer By Dinner Plan is for you.

Start with the Recovery Stretch and walking every day.

      Are you ready to flatten your belly, tone your arms and thighs and slim your butt? Clients are telling me how much they love these workouts because they are challenging and fun and they have seen first-hand how effective they are for making their bodies healthier and fitter.

    3. End your diet dilemma by getting your cravings and appetite under control. That's where supplements come in and don't forget LynFit Lean Bars kill cravings and help you lose weight fast. Here's a little Supplement Cheat Sheet to troubleshoot your worst diet issues.

For advanced weight loss start switching to all-natural products for fast relief. For sleeplessness, try LynFit Lean Sleep. Constipation and bloating? Try LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse and add a little Suntheanine Fiber to your LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Need to satisfy that urge to chew? Have a LynFit Lean Bar. Anxiety got you in a tizzy? Try Oxytocin or Suntheanine for fast relief that won't negatively affect your weight loss.

And above all else - Remember I'm here if you need me.

Detoxing Your Body With Natural Alternatives

Spring cleansing means detoxifying your body, mind and spirit. Detoxing is an ancient tradition and has been known to be an "extraordinary-mystical" experience. Jesus did it, Plato did it and so did Gandhi! They said it gave them clarity of thought and made them feel more peaceful and created vibrant health.

Detoxing your body is also the best way to slow down the aging process and jump start your weight loss. My first goal with every client is to get them to feel good so they have the energy to make lifestyle changes that will ultimately affect their weight loss and melt fat from their waistline.

How do you know if you need to detox? Here are the telltale signs that your body is begging you to detox:

                  • Cravings
                  • Bloated, feeling heavy, constipated or irritable bowel symptoms
                  • Depression, moodiness, lack of focus, can't concentrate
                  • Tired, lack of energy
                  • Muscle aches and pains
                  • Sleep problems
                  • Skin eruptions, eczema, nail or hair problems
                  • Sick often
                  • Hard to lose weight

I recommend certain proven techniques that help your body detox. Detoxing has always been the best way to recharge, rejuvenate, and renew. Anybody can benefit from a detox. The body is coming out of what might be called hibernation. It's a way you can jump-start your body and your weight loss for a more active life, and a healthier life.

There's a big difference between dieting and detoxing as the effects on the body are quite different.

ANCIENT TRADITION MEETS NEW-AGE NEEDS

A study of anthropology gives plenty of evidence. In Chinese medicine, fasting is part of preventative health care. For many ancient cultures, fasting helped people "lighten up" after a long winter, shedding the extra winter fat layer that provided warmth.

Our bodies naturally detoxify every day because detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands, and skin. Our metabolic processes continuously dispose of accumulated toxic matter.

However, the environmental toxins of modern-day life - the pollutants, chemicals, other synthetic substances - are more than the average body can handle. Our bodies don't know what to do with foreign substances, so it will store them outside of the regular elimination system, so we don't get poisoned. Those poisons start building up in our body fat.

If you feel "congested" from too much food - or the wrong kinds of food - you may want to detoxify. If your energy level is low, if you have been taking many medications that have not been eliminated from your system, even a simple weekend detox may help you feel better fast so that you crave eating healthy and exercising. Not to mention how focused and peaceful you'll feel. (For more information on a total Metabolic Cleanse, click HERE)

Here are FIVE safe, natural alternatives that make detoxing easier:

      1. Start by knowing your numbers. If you're not feeling well it helps to know why. That's why I'm suggesting that you know your numbers. Not your weight or body fat, but rather your Omega-3 levels. We've all heard that Omega-3's are the secret to optimal health as they help lower total cholesterol, ease inflammation, increase energy and boost mood as well as benefiting your nails and hair. But what you might not know is that your Omega-3 levels may actually be hurting you. I suggest that every client start out by taking this highly accurate simple home test that will provide you with your ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 (results in 2 weeks) which is the key to detoxing your body. When we feel better and ache less you won't need toxic drugs to ease symptoms. I searched and found the best deal for you to get 2 kits for the price of 1 by clicking HERE. Be sure to sign up for their 100 days of heart health while you're there.

      2. Kick constipation/IBS naturally with fiber. I suggest mixing Sunfiber every morning in your LynFit Complete Protein Shake along with a ½ cup of raspberries to reach your daily fiber quota. What makes Sunfiber totally unique is that it's the only fiber that's truly invisible (no taste and no gritty texture). What I love most about Sunfiber is that it will not impede with protein digestion. Sunfiber will also help improve the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and it dissolves fast!

        Lisa Tip: If you suffer from constipation or IBS symptoms, in addition to mixing Sunfiber every morning with your Complete Protein Shake, take the LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse at dinner for the best results.

      3. Ease joint aches and pains naturally with antioxidants and other pain fighting ingredients while detoxing. Joint aches, arthritis and headaches are the #1 complaint I hear every day that keep people from eating healthy and exercising. You can bet I take this very seriously. There are natural alternatives such as LynFit Recovery Agent that provide fast relief without rebound pain or side effects. You can help your body recover naturally with proven ingredients such as Glucosamine, L-Glutamine, Curcumin and Bromelain, to name a few, and all contained in LynFit Recovery Agent. It helps repair damaged tissue, enhances immunity and speeds healing while inhibiting joint inflammation.

      4. Food is always your best medicine so choose organic whenever possible and aim to eat more green vegetables versus fruits as fruit can also raise blood sugar levels. Elevated blood sugar contributes to intense cravings, moodiness and fatigue. You really are what you eat so focus on eating 10 vegetables daily and lean, clean white fish with lots of fresh water. I recommend drinking at least 4 cups of green tea daily or hot water with lemon to help your body eliminate toxins that make you feel so bad.

Getting lean and staying healthy is about eating right and staying active so be sure to get some exercise every day. Your body will thank you and your weight loss will be enhanced when you use safe, natural alternatives whenever possible.

Cleansing The Right Way!

In a panic after the holidays and just want to "clean up and start over" by doing a juice cleanse? I understand your sense of urgency but let's make sure that you get started the right way. While cleansing your system and "starting over" is a good thing, if you don't juice cleanse properly you may actually cause damage to an already slow metabolism, especially if you're over 40.

The good news is that not only is juicing for detoxing and weight loss one of the latest health trends, but when done properly, can help you lose a pound a day. It's important to remember that I'm talking about metabolic cleansing however. There's a big difference between a normal juice cleanse and my metabolic boosting cleanse!

The first thing most people do is to start dumping all kinds of fruit and veggies into a blender without any concern as to what those combinations might actually be doing to their bodies. In fact, if you're not careful, you end up spiking your blood sugar levels off the chart and that's the last thing you want to do when you're trying to lose fat.

So, can I really lose a pound a day with a metabolic cleanse? Absolutely! But only if your cleanse is done properly. Other cleanses don't contain enough nutrients to keep your metabolism running smoothly and you tend to lose muscle in the process because they don't provide enough protein and nutrients, slowing down your metabolism and causing your body to go into survival mode.

My metabolic boosting cleanse does the complete opposite. It provides the nutrients your body needs to keep your metabolism going and in turn, allows you to lose weight!

The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Difference:

  • Before you just start tossing assorted greens into your blender, you want to make sure you mix in some metabolic boosting whey, found in my Complete Protein Shakes. Whey is low calorie (155 calories or less). It is also low in carbs, sugar and fat. You'll absolutely love the taste that makes it easy to drink at least one every day. The Complete Protein Shakes come in 3 delicious flavors: French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry Banana Twist. There's no better tasting diet drink. And it boosts your metabolism by 25%!
  • Kick-start your day with my Daily Power Shot. The first thing I do every morning is take a LynFit Daily Power Shot. It contains every single nutrient that your body needs. If your body is missing even a single nutrient your metabolism starts to slow down. The Daily Power Shot's vitamins, minerals and antioxidants help your body reach optimum health and elevates energy levels, allowing you to maximize your weight loss.
  • Feeling hungry between meals? It's not the feeling hungry that's bad, it's what we do to try to satisfy that craving that hurts us. Too many of us instinctively reach for a sugary or carb filled snack when we start to feel hungry between meals. Rather than those "not so good" choices, I recommend sipping green tea while allowing your body the necessary time to process and burn off fat. If you really can't seem to get satisfied you can always enjoy another metabolic boosting Complete Protein Shake, or even a green apple.

Here's a Lisa tip: Take Omega-3 at 3! I make it a point to take my Pure Omega-3 at 3pm every day to blunt my cravings and keep my energy levels sustained. It makes it a lot easier to walk away from those temptations!

  • Fuel your metabolism with seafood for dinner. What you eat for dinner makes a big difference in your weight loss success. Seafood is high in iodine and will help fuel your metabolism. Add broccoli or leafy greens to your meal and you'll give your metabolism the kick-start it needs to keep burning fat throughout the night.

Here's a Lisa tip: While cleansing, before bed, I recommend taking a LynFit Fat Burning Raspberry Ketone Cleanse. It detoxifies your system, getting rid of fat loving toxins that slow your metabolism down.

  • Weight loss miracles really do happen when you sleep! Sleep is when your body regenerates and revitalizes itself. LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin will help your body and brain reboot so your body can burn fat even while you sleep. Drug-free, it is specifically designed for weight loss while allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new, metabolic boosting day!
You can get all the products listed above in one convenient Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Kit. No excuses, no delays, no putting off what you can start today!

Boost Mood And Lose Belly Fat Fast

Everything we eat has an effect on our mood and either boosts metabolism or damages it. Here are 5 things that you can do right now to boost your mood and your metabolism. These techniques also help reverse damage caused by stress, unhealthy eating habits and a lack of metabolic boosting exercise.

By making a few simple adjustments to your diet you'll feel better fast and your pants will fit better as these tricks help melt abdominal fat while lifting your spirits. I know that when I feel better I eat better and the benefits can be huge, and fast!

  • Avoid Skipping Meals At All Cost
It causes your blood sugar to dip and sets us up for not only a bad mood but "lethal" cravings that can't be controlled. Maintain you blood sugar and you'll maintain your energy and avoid storing more fat in your mid-section.

Here's a great solution; never leave home without a LynFit Lean Bar! I'm addicted to them because they supply all of the nutrition our brains and bodies need, but the best part is how they taste. They are irresistibly delicious and hit the spot with a cup of green tea. LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar that can help you reduce belly fat because they are so clean.

  • Stay Hydrated
Being dehydrated can make you feel tired and cranky, not to mention it can slow your metabolism by 3%. I don't know about you but my metabolism is slow enough! Aim for 8 cups of water daily. Water can be enjoyable both hot and cold. I reach my water quota by drinking 4 cups of decaf green tea or warm water with lemon. You know what they say, "if you're not peeing every hour you're not drinking enough!"

  • Forget Moderation

Moderation doesn't work! Most of us struggle to moderate "trigger" foods (almost always carbs and sugar) and when we eat them it makes us crave them even more. Trying to moderately eat foods that trigger us to eat more almost always sends us into an eating binge that leaves us feeling worse than we did before we ate.

If you absolutely must eat, reach for foods like steamed vegetables and salmon, or make Hot Chocolate with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake and sit down and read a good book or watch something that will make you laugh. Whatever you do, food is the problem not the solution. The good news is the "crazy cravings" are like mini-panic/anxiety attacks and they never last more than 5 minutes. You can survive 5 minutes!

And, don't forget to take LynFit Carb Edge regularly if you struggle with extreme hunger and cravings. It not only helps with cravings, it also blocks the unwanted carbs from being broken down into sugar and stored as fat. I suggest taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge at 11am and another at 2pm to help you through the rough times.

  • Get A Boost From "Good Mood" Supplements

Certain nutrients can give you just the boost you need to get through those "tough" days. Nutrients such as amino acids (found in the LynFit Complete Protein Shake and LynFit Lean Bars) have been known to boost serotonin levels in the brain which contributes to feelings of optimism and calm.

Need more of a boost? Add B-Complex. Stress depletes our bodies of B-Vitamins creating a need for more. LynFit Cutting Edge, LynFit Carb Edge, and LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones all contain B-Complex that will not only boost your mood but also help your body burn calories while supplying you with natural energy, enhancing fat loss and curbing cravings (emotional cravings too).

Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake for breakfast and (1) LynFit Carb Edge at 11am and 2pm.

  • Elevate Mood And Reduce Anxiety And Depression

This trick helps balance blood sugar so it's another way to kill cravings before they begin while helping me to melt off stubborn belly fat. I suggest taking (1) LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm and again before bed. Food won't get you the amount of DHA and EPA that's needed for results. Be sure to look for at least 500 DHA and 500 EPA for maximum results. LynFit's Pure Omega-3 contains the right amount of pharmaceutical-grade Omega-3 and is purified to remove impurities so you'll see results right away and you'll feel better fast.

Still in a funk? I get it! I struggle with depression and anxiety myself and these tips have saved me. But it's important to be consistent with your health and don't forget to add exercise. Boost your mood and metabolism even further with the LynFit Metabolic Booster Video! And as always, keep living LEAN!

Drop 7 Pounds In 7 Days With A Metabolic Boosting Cleanse

I don't know about you, but I crave a cleanse after I have eaten "off plan". I don't feel good when I'm not eating right or getting enough sleep. I feel tired all the time, my cravings run my life, and I feel fat and fluffy.

I know the solution is to detox my body from all of the damage that I caused it. But I should warn you, not all cleanses are good for weight loss. In fact, most of the cleanses you see advertised actually slow down your metabolism. Did you know that juicing slows your metabolism? Juicing is great for alkalizing your body because you consume your vegetables, but it also causes hikes in blood sugar that affect your weight loss and prevent you from burning fat.

The reason cleanses are so good for us is that they make us feel re-energized. Not to mention, they reboot our metabolism when done right. We also begin eating better so we feel better right away. But that's not all that cleanses are good for. Cleansing is the best way to improve your health and jump start our weight loss plan because they are alkalizing our bodies. If our bodies are too acidic we get sick often, feel tired all the time, and struggle with weight loss. Not to mention we can't lose that stubborn fat.

All of LynFit's plans are alkalizing so they not only boost your metabolism and cause you to lose weight, but they also create vibrant health. You'll not only look better, you'll feel the best you have felt in years and your aches and pains will even subside, so you'll want to exercise!

What makes our bodies too acidic? Eating too many sweets and processed foods, meats (including chicken) and not getting enough sleep or rest.

Cleansing facts that you need to know:

  • Our brains bathe and reboot when we sleep and if we don't sleep well enough or get enough zzz's our bodies can't reboot.
  • Juicing/Drinking juices (especially if they are pre-made vs. fresh) can slow down your metabolism. When we juice on mega doses of vegetables that are raw they can affect and slow your thyroid. Eat steamed vegetables instead that won't slow your thyroid.
  • Blending large amounts of vegetables, especially if you fruit can cause blood sugar levels to skyrocket and that's always counter-productive for losing weight and burning fat.
  • Not getting enough clean, lean protein while cleansing can cause your body to break down muscle tissue and that causes your metabolism to slow down. Clean, lean proteins such as LynFit Complete Protein Shake and white fish are the best and only sources you should rely on while cleansing.
  • Not eating to boost your metabolism slows down your metabolism. That doesn't mean you need to eat a lot, but you have to eat right.
  • Not cleansing long enough. A good cleanse should be followed for at least 21 days to break bad habits and create new good ones.
We eat from Thanksgiving to New Year's and go all out like there is no tomorrow and we think we can cleanse for 1 week to fix the damage - NOT! I suggest cleansing for 30 days following a Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and allowing yourself to go off 1-2 meals per week (after 7-10 days). Keep your cheat meal light, clean and simple so you don't wreck all of your hard work. Your digestive system needs to be treated with TLC for the best health results. I usually have a fish meal made with lemon and white wine and a salad with veggies, and then frozen yogurt for dessert as my cheat meal. That's enough to make me crave going back on my cleanse.


How do you cleanse your body to boost your metabolism? Follow a Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and add the following tips to maximize your results:

  • Take the LynFit Daily Power Shot first thing in the morning to bathe your body with vital nutrients that will provide the energy you need.
  • Perform the Metabolic Booster or Fat Blaster workout at 50% intensity and do the Recovery Stretch every other day. STOP all other activities except walking or indoor biking.
  • Drink you LynFit Complete Protein Shake or LynFit Lean Bar after your morning workout. Not working out in the morning? Start now! Even 15 minutes will make a difference.
  • Drink at least 4 cups of green tea daily or warm water with lemon, as well as lots of fresh water; instead of coffee.
  • Take LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm to keep cravings in check and bathe your body with good fats for optimal health.
  • Take the LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse every day at 5pm with your dinner. If constipated, use more to get your bowels working.
  • Take LynFit Lean Sleep 30 minutes before bed to enhance sleep. Sleep and rest are critical while cleansing. It's when our brains bathe themselves and our bodies restore themselves.
  • Don't eat in between meals. Let yourself get hungry and fill up with tea, hot water with lemon or fresh water. You're supposed to be drinking 8 glasses a day. Tea counts toward your water quota as long as it's black.
  • Eat steamed vegetables for dinner and every other night have white fish.

Cleansing is THE BEST way to jump-start your fat loss when you do it right. This is a great time to pick up some new habits that will change your life for the better. After all, cleansing is more than just detoxing the body. We should also be thinking about ways we can improve our lives, and our health! Recruit your mother, husband and kids and do it together as family. Even the pets can benefit!

Need some LynSpiration? Meditate daily, early in the morning or immediately after you exercise by lying flat on your back and focusing on your breathing, slowly exhaling out your stress (guys, this is especially important for you) and focus on anything that makes you smile.

Here's a bonus recipe for you to use during your cleanse; the Alkalinity Shake. Simply add the following ingredients to your blender while making your shake. Even if you hate vegetables you'll love this. You won't even know they're in there.

Directions: Wash and prep ingredients. Add to blender and blend away!
Serves 2 (that way you already have your lunch shake prepared)

(1) cup water or black coffee (coffee is loaded with antioxidants)
(4) scoops of your favorite flavor LynFit Complete Protein Shake (results are not guaranteed when using other shakes as they are loaded with inferior protein and sugar)
(1) large cucumber
(1) fistful of kale
(2-3) stalks of celery
(1) big broccoli stem
(1/2) peeled lemon

Scared you won't like the veggies in your shake? Start slow and try one new veggie each day. Most people love kale, cucumber and spinach because they are so mild tasting.

Get ready for the detox of your life. I'll warn you upfront - it's addicting!
