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!

Simple Mistakes That Stop Weight Loss
"Eat less, move more"—whether you're trying to lose weight, melt fat, or muscle up, I'm sure you've heard this advice before. But losing weight, burning off stubborn fat, or gaining lean muscle isn't as easy as it sounds. Especially if you're over age 30 and you'be been losing and regaining weight for most of your life.
The truth is that in today's world of over-processed foods and ginormous portions most people struggle to lose weight. If you've endlessly been working to lose weight but haven't seen any significant results, you're probably making one of these mistakes.
You're Starving Your Body of the Protein it Needs
This has nothing to do with starving yourself, but it does have to do with starving your muscles and feeding your fat cells, which slows down your metabolic rate, making you soft and flabby (including your face). Think of it this way, would you be able to build a bonfire if you didn't have enough of the right kind of wood? Absolutely not!
Your metabolism works the same way, with the same concept. It's not going to magically begin to increase the right amount of specific nutrients to start burning fat again, which increases your likelihood of losing weight. This means that protein needs to become your priority and you'll need sufficient amounts of it.
Most of us get too much of the wrong kind of protein—hard to digest, high in fat, and wrong kind of carbs. Yet we wonder why we can't seem to lose weight or melt off that stubborn body fat. The fact is if you don't consume enough of the right foods, your metabolism is being turned off versus being turned on. This leads to your body not being able to use the calories you're feeding it, so they get stored, and you keep gaining weight, or not losing. Every calorie you eat is either used for repair or to make hair, skin, nails, and preserve or grow lean muscle tissue—or it's stored. It's that simple.
Remember this the next time you go off on an eating frenzy, thinking you'll only have a little. Every little bit counts!
Without the right amount of nutrients and sufficient or adequate calories, no matter how much you exercise you cannot lose weight. And you certainly won't burn off fat. What you eat is 90 percent of your success. Simply put, working out will not help your weight loss if you're not eating right.
Now, you're probably wondering how much protein you would need to consume to boost your metabolism and preserve lean muscle tissue, which is what keeps your metabolic fires burning hot and prevents that dreadful metabolic slowdown. An easy way to figure out this number is to take your lean body weight (use your goal weight) in pounds and plan on consuming one (1) gram per pound of that lean body weight. If your goal weight is 120 pounds, your daily protein target is 120 grams of lean, metabolic boosting protein.
This is best achieved using LynFit Complete Protein Shakes, Lean Bars, and fish. They are lowest in fat, thus the best for weight loss. That's why celebrities and professional athletes use these tools versus trying to eat food. Plus, they are quantifiable, so you don't guess if you ate too much or too little. Using protein weight loss tools can nail your numbers every time.
After a few weeks, if you still don't feel you've boosted your metabolism enough, try upping your protein by having a Lean Bar. Lean Bars are made with the same superior quality protein used in LynFit Protein Shakes. Or, add a piece of white fish instead of chicken at dinner, to keep fat grams low, but protein high enough to make a change in your body.
You probably think that there's no way you'll have time to consume that much protein every day. A lot of times this can be true, which is why pre-planning, meal prep and having the right tools such as LynFit Protein Shakes and Lean Bars is going to be your best friend. They make losing weight and melting belly fat faster and easier.
Starting off, you should divide your protein up, so you're consuming protein 4-5 times daily, spaced 2½-3 hours apart. But, if you want quicker results and a better boost, divide your meals, so you're consuming six meals daily. If you think that's too much protein, use one (1) scoop of protein powder instead of two (2) in your shakes. Or, use the new Egg White Protein—it's lower in calories and carbs.
If you don't think you'll be able to eat up to six meals daily, you can try adding a little extra protein powder or ½-1 Lean Bar to your meals so you nail your protein quota. And, don't forget to start your protein-boosting early, around 6-7 a.m., and stop by 8 p.m. each night in order to get it all in. It's okay if your protein shakes are closer together—2-2½ hours is okay. You'll find that you're not hungry at all, and that's a good thing!
You're Lacking in Energy and Need that Extra Boost
Your will is the most powerful muscle in your body. If you want something bad enough, you're going to do whatever it takes, and work your tail off in order to achieve it. Losing weight is no different. You must have a sense of urgency, and urgency requires energy. Why?
Let's say you're doing weightlifting using 3-5 pound weights, and you're able to do ten reps without breaking a sweat. Do you think your muscles are breaking a sweat? Of course not. You have to have a sense of urgency and power in your workout, and that sense of urgency will require extra energy—a kick in the pants. That's where LynFit Daily Power Shot comes in. It's the perfect way to ensure your body is getting the nutrition needed for that urgent push to accomplish your goals. It's the ultimate energizer!
You would have to juice over 30 pounds of produce to get the same nutrition that you'll get with Daily Power Shot. It is the most complete liquid mineral colloidal multivitamin available, delivering unparalleled nutrition, fast, all-natural energy we all need more of.
You're Not Sleeping or Getting Enough Rest
Weight loss and workouts push your body to the limit, which increases your sleep and rest demands. Getting enough quality sleep can boost weight loss because your HGH (Human Growth Hormone, responsible for anti-aging and burning fat) levels are at their highest when you're sleeping.
Quality sleep also balances cortisol levels that may be stopping you from losing weight, melting off stubborn belly fat, and becoming stronger. There is a study that directly correlates lack of sleep and high cortisol levels. Cortisol is a catabolic hormone that breaks down muscle, and that is the absolute last thing you want when trying to melt fat and lose weight. That's why I suggest everyone try LynFit Lean Sleep, which is also an antioxidant that can help boost your immunity and reduce joint aches and pains.
Your Hormones are Out of Whack
If you're over age 40, you need a boost—a hormone boost, that is! If you're a male, you need a testosterone booster, and if you're a female, you need to balance your hormones by reducing the stress hormones and increasing the good hormones that help you feel good and slow down the aging process. Additionally, you need to boost thyroid function so you can lose the "middle-aged spread" that's now covering your six-pack.
LynFit Thyro-Boost features powerful ingredients backed by separate human clinical trials that show it to boost testosterone, decrease estradiol, and reduce cortisol levels, keeping your thyroid working up to par, so you stop gaining weight and start losing weight.
You charge your cell phone at night, right? So do the same thing with your body, so it's performing at its best. Take Thyro-Boost every day!
You're Not Consistent
Making the necessary changes to help achieve your goals is one thing—sticking with it is another. You can't expect to see significant results if you only put in the time and effort for just a few weeks. You need to remain consistent with your nutrition and make sure you're getting enough exercise. It's that consistency and frequency that get results.
There's nothing wrong with taking a few days off from your workouts to recharge your body, or even splurging one or two meals weekly. Everyone needs a little upzig now and then, and God knows we all need down time. But allowing yourself to slip back into bad eating habits, not get enough rest or getting lazy, stop you from seeing results. It's those bad habits that will cause you to lose all the progress you worked so hard to achieve.
You need to commit 100 percent in your nutrition and do your best, if you're serious—really serious, about losing weight. I can guarantee you this...you'll never be sorry that you did. But you'll be sorry if you don't. Don't quit on yourself because YOU CAN DO 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.

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
- 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.
- Write down your goal and post it all over your house to remind yourself why you started in the first place
- Weigh yourself and take a before photo (say good-bye to the struggle)
- Throw all of the junk "non-food” out of your house. You can’t eat it if it’s not there :)
- Make a list and go shop for what you need. No time to shop? Have it delivered right to your door.
- Eat foods from the approved food list only
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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)
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Eat, Drink, and Stay Healthy Naturally!
'Tis the season of overdoing it, and that usually means we end up getting sick. We seem to be exhausted all the time, and that almost always means we gain weight.
If you want to avoid getting sick this year, and you're determined not to gain weight, I've got great news for you — it's possible! All you have to do is let Mother Nature lend a helping hand. Throw out those metabolism-slowing, immune-killing, quick fixes and turn to your natural medicine cabinet instead. Plus, natural remedies aren't as likely to damage your liver and kidneys.
From aches and pains to low energy to just giving your metabolism the boost it needs to help you keep off those holiday pounds, even when you're not perfect — remember, a healthier life is a happier life. And, prevention is the best cure.
If you were to come over to my house and complain of an ailment or your child got an injury while visiting, you might be surprised to see me open up my medicine cabinet and proceed to pull out various natural remedies. After all, it's no secret that I have a love affair for alternative, natural treatments, and have been studying them for the past 25+ years.
Recently, a friend was asking me what I do when I get aches and pains, among other things. I rattled off some suggestions and talked about the things I keep in my home and use on a regular basis. She was amazed to learn that everything we put into our bodies has either a negative or positive effect on us — especially when it comes to losing weight and boosting metabolism.
She was also shocked to learn that some of the things we do every day can impair healing, which isn't good for aches and pains in the long run or slow down our metabolism, often causing weight gain or making it difficult to lose weight.
In a short speech, any medicine that says "anti" on the label can slow our metabolism and even affect liver and kidney functions over time.
If you have a problem, LynFit Nutrition has a solution. Safe (safety should always come first) all-natural vitamins, minerals, and other supplements, naturally inspired and perfected by LynFit Nutrition. We help fix what ails you.
Some people never seem to catch "it." And, chances are, those same people are ones who use natural ways to stay away from those pesky viruses that prey on our weaknesses (like eating too much sugar when we're tired).
Research has shown that healthy habits, naturally supporting the immune system, can dramatically reduce "catching a cold." And, should you happen to catch a "bug," these same strategies can help in reducing the severity of symptoms.
Choosing a clean, metabolic boosting diet is the number one strategy for staying healthy, combatting the common cold, and alleviating aches and pains. Doing so will boost your immune system and reduce inflammation, helping you to recover more quickly.
A clean, metabolic boosting diet means eating only real, whole foods — the way nature intended.
The priority when it comes to eating healthy is to Power Your Immunity with Protein. It's critical to have at least one LynFit Complete Whey Protein Shake per day to feed and nourish your body. Doing so will also keep weight gain away.
The high-quality whey LynFit Nutrition uses in its Complete Protein Shakes and Lean Bars is the purest that can be found. While it boosts your metabolism, it also helps to boost your immunity as well. LynFit Nutrition Whey Protein is an excellent source of calcium, and calcium helps to lower blood sugar levels while building healthier, stronger bones.
Each time you eat a LynFit Lean Bar you're getting one-third of your daily protein and fiber from a prebiotic source that will help to keep you regular and your gut healthy. They taste delicious and come in handy for those moments when you need comfort food. There simply is no other protein bar like it!
My personal Lean Bar favorite is Chewy Chocolate. It tastes like a Tootsie Roll® without the sugar. Sometimes, I'll twist it together with peanut butter — "You got peanut butter on my chocolate........." Just sayin....
Choose fresh vegetables and some citrus fruits, being mindful to stay away from powdered veggie products, juices and juicing, and canned or processed options due to them causing a spike in blood sugar levels. These spikes are awful for aches and pains and cause weight gain. They also lower your resistance by weakening your immunity.
When it comes to fruits and veggies, it's best to eat the real thing. Your body will burn more calories in the digestion process. If you're trying to lose weight, stick to 1–2 servings of fruit per day, max, even if you're sick.
These healthy habits below will also help to keep you feeling full, so you don't overeat on the wrong kinds of food when temptation is at its peak.
- Add plenty of natural herbs and spices to your meals, such as garlic and thyme
- Use a mixed blend of cold pressed herbs instead of butter and saturated fats
- Include lean, fresh, metabolic boosting proteins/meats (in addition to your Protein Shakes and/or Lean Bars). Free-range and organic are best, and watch your portion sizes. A serving size should be the size of a small deck of cards.
Stay away from processed foods (this includes processed store-bought protein bars and shakes — you'll always get what you pay for), sugars, and most carbs. They will spike blood sugar levels and switch the pain switch on. Most contain additives that weaken our immune system. The best rule of thumb is to follow my LynFit Nutrition Plans and Resources for the cleanest eating possible.
And don't forget that you can find over 100 delicious, thermogenic recipes in my book, The Metabolism Solution.
Getting enough rest is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. It will help your body heal, regulate your metabolism, and kill hunger and cravings.
Instead of reaching for drugs to improve sleep, swap out the nighttime medicines that clog your liver and negatively affect your weight loss with LynFit Lean Sleep. You'll have the best night's sleep ever, and it won't harm your health or slow your metabolism.
LynFit Lean Sleep contains the perfect amount of melatonin to help you sleep without feeling groggy when you wake up. Lean Sleep is a proven regulator of brown fat that helps you burn more calories all day long. So you'll melt off belly fat — even while you sleep. So don't go to bed without taking 1–2 LynFit Lean Sleep (if you're struggling, you can take up to three per night).
Before bedtime, be sure to:
- Avoid foods and drinks containing caffeine
- Avoid alcohol in the evenings
- Eat dinner earlier in the evening to allow for optimal digestion
- Turn off the television and anything that has bright lights before bedtime to help you relax (this includes tablets and phones)
- Avoid stress at all costs
- Do your workouts earlier in the day vs. later. You'll sleep better and burn more fat.
BOOST YOUR THYROID
Your thyroid produces hormones which regulate your body's metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development, and bone maintenance. It's imperative that we keep it in optimal functioning condition. LynFit Nutrition to the rescue with LynFit Thyro-Boost.
Thyro-Boost is a sophisticated blend loaded with more than a dozen adaptogenic herbs and natural ingredients. Adding herbs and natural supplements are a simple yet powerful way to boost the immune system, helping us to avoid colds, decrease inflammation (underlying cause of pain), and reduce hot flashes.
What is an adaptogenic herb? Herbs that are known as adaptogens are a unique group of ingredients used to improve the health of the adrenal system — the system in charge of managing your body's hormonal response to stress. This includes the thyroid, which is highly sensitive to stress. That's why when you're stressed it's harder to lose weight and more prone to getting sick.
Think your thyroid is fine and you don't need a little support? Think again. When it comes to your health, everyone needs this support in their personal medicine cabinet. You can read an in-depth summary of the benefits of LynFit Thyro-Boost here, and I'm sure you'll agree that it's a much-needed support that everyone needs.
YOUR DAILY VITAMIN D REQUIREMENT
During the winter months, it is very common to become deficient in Vitamin D, regardless of where you live. Taking the time to go out into the sun regularly will help the body create this essential nutrient naturally if your system is working correctly.
If it isn't, or you aren't spending enough time outdoors (I say even if you are), it's important to take LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost, a high-quality vitamin D supplement that will help you get the vitamin D your body needs, along with an extra dose of immune health boosting blends.
By taking two (2) LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost daily, you'll not only keep your bones strong, but you'll also help fight off the common cold or at a minimum, shorten the duration of it.
THE WAY NATURE INTENDED
Sure, Tylenol® and other over-the-counter drugs might seem like a good idea, but what you don't know may hurt your health and make the pain last longer. These types of drugs may inhibit your body's healing process vs. helping it. Go natural instead, the way nature intended.
So, what's in that natural medicine cabinet I'd open if you came to my home and you had aches, pains, and ailments? You'd find LynFit Complete Shakes, Lean Bars, Lean Sleep, Thyro-Boost, and Vitamin D3 Boost. Simply put, you'd find your answer for how to eat, drink, and stay healthy!

Holiday-Proof Your Weight Loss
You can avoid the weight gain slump this holiday season and blast fat instead.
Most people fall off the weight loss wagon because they stop doing the things that work. For starters, they stop taking their fat loss supplements at the very time they need them the most. Supplements are the secret weapon to guard against weight gain this time of the year. And here's why.....
When you stack LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge together, you are flipping the weight gain switch off while turning the weight loss switch on. It's a natural boost that will help keep you moving, which is especially important during the holiday season because the more you sit, the more you eat.
The great news is this fat burning combo is exactly what you need this time of year, so don't leave home without this one-two punch.
Each time you take LynFit Accelerator, it's like turbocharging your metabolism. It tricks your body into thinking like a thin person, which helps you avoid overeating in the first place.
LynFit Accelerator boosts mood and energy, so you won't be reaching for the wrong foods that provide a false energy. It elevates mood, making you feel happier. And, when you feel happy, you eat less. Stress eaters take note; LynFit Accelerator doesn't just help preventatively; it also comes to the rescue should you have a bad eating day or spell — just like Thanksgiving through New Years.
The Raspberry Ketones found in LynFit Accelerator:
- Helps decrease the absorption of fat (you need this most when attending parties, so never leave home without it)
- Supports thermogenesis in brown adipose tissue, meaning it helps your body burn fat by converting white (not-so-good) fat cells into brown fat cells, which helps you burn more calories — even at rest.
- Supports appetite control and mood enhancement
- Limits enzymes that turn carbohydrates into to fat
So, instead of gaining weight while you're being festive, you'll be boosting fat loss and increasing your much-needed energy while killing your hunger and cravings.
EAT YOUR CARBS WHILE STAYING LEAN
LynFit's Fat Burning Combo is a high-quality formulation that speeds the removal of carbohydrates and sugar from the blood by speeding up their uptake, so they get burned off faster and easier. This is the secret to managing your hunger and cravings while also boosting fat loss.
LynFit Carb Edge contains white kidney bean extract and over 15 other sophisticated ingredients that help balance and lower blood sugar levels. Lowering blood sugar levels is the best way to melt off stubborn belly fat.
If you've been struggling to lose weight, the answer may lie in your blood sugar levels. I should warn you, however — blood sugar levels don't decrease easily. That's where the smart use of safe supplements comes in.
The ingredients found in both these supplements have been used for decades, and are still used in Europe to help treat elevated blood sugar levels and blood fats like cholesterol and triglycerides. They are the most effective way to lower blood sugar and have more uses than I could list here.
Who needs the LynFit Fat Burning Combo?
- Anyone who wants to lose weight and melt fat
- Anyone who lives in the real world and doesn't eat perfectly all the time
- Anyone who wants their body to react better to carbohydrates (keeps blood sugar levels low)
- Wine and alcohol drinkers
- Anyone needing more natural energy
- Anyone wanting to avoid weight gain this holiday season
- Anyone looking to maximize their nutrient absorption
- Anyone who wants to burn fat without harmful stimulants
LynFit's Fat Burning Combo was formulated with three goals in mind:
- Stop weight gain and boost weight loss
- Kill the hunger and cravings that can be experienced the day after you overeat or drink by ensuring your body is reacting to carbohydrate consumption in the most positive way possible
- Allow dieters and athletes to maintain their weight loss and lean bodies, even when introducing carbohydrates back into their diets (can you say holiday party?)
Suggested use from now through New Years, and beyond:
- A.M. — (1) LynFit Accelerator and (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- Midday Lunch — (1) LynFit Accelerator and (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- 3–4 p.m. — (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- Pre-party — Take as directed above and take an additional (1–2) LynFit Carb Edge one hour or 30 minutes before you eat (or indulge)
NOTE: If you weight 200 lbs. or more, increase the dosage to (2) LynFit Carb Edge per serving instead of (1). If you feel that's too much, simply cut back the dosage (Signs that it may be too much include light-headedness or weakness).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Are there any products you recommend to take with the LynFit Fat Burning Combo?
A: Yes. The LynFit Fat Burning Combo has been formulated to work synergistically with LynFit Cutting Edge and LynFit Complete Protein. Really, this combo can be stacked with any LynFit product for your own unique stack. The combo works all by itself if you wish to keep it simple.
Q: When is the best time to take the Fat Loss Stack?
A: LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge are best taken first thing in the morning, then again at lunch. It's super-critical that you take another LynFit Carb Edge right before you splurge, so take it before you leave the house to go to the party — where you're most likely to overeat. You can also follow the plan on the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. The most important time to take this combo is 5–15 minutes before your largest carbohydrate-laden meal.
Q: How quickly can I expect results from the LynFit Fat Burning Combo?
A: Most of our customers say they feel better right away, and they no longer fight with hunger and cravings the same day they start. If your body is used to you eating what it wants, when it wants, it may take you 24 hours to reboot those cravings. Most of the time it's psychological vs. physiological, but taking the combo helps. You'll begin to notice a leaner, lighter feeling with more energy and fewer cravings within 48 hours. You'll also notice your body is harder due to cellulite disappearing within 7–10 days. Remember, however, that it all depends on you remembering to take this combo each day, especially before cheat day meals and drinks.
Bottom line — you'll be able to navigate through this holiday season without gaining an ounce. And who knows, you might even lose weight. But you've got to remember to take them each day, especially when you're not eating clean.
So, make this holiday season one your body will never forget. You'll be leaner, stronger, and, your clothes will still fit when January rolls around. All the while enjoying some carbs without gaining fat.
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
I'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.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
We would love to hear your story. What will you be working on to transform your body and your life?

Fat Burners To Make Weight Loss Faster & Easier
So, you didn't lose the weight you wanted to or lean out enough to put those shorts on this summer. It may be time to use fat burning tools to help rid you of that stubborn weight. Fat burners can help you more than you may realize, especially if you're already drinking LynFit Protein Shakes or eating LynFit Lean Bars for breakfast to boost your metabolism. This article will teach you how to give fat loss a 1-2-3 punch, so even the most stubborn body fat can be burned off.
Maybe you're already doing all these things:
- Eating a lean, clean diet that's high in metabolic boosting proteins, high in fiber, and loaded with thermogenic vegetables
- Doing your metabolic boosting workouts and getting in your 10,000 steps daily
So how can fat burners help you? Simple—these supplements can help you lose twice as much weight in ½ the time while aiding in melting off stubborn belly fat by creating the fat burning environment needed to see results.
I've found from my many years of working with celebrities, pro fitness models, and bodybuilders, that in addition to cleaning up their diets and getting them on a workout plan they can do consistently, they always get better results when they stack the right combination of fat loss supplements. This is known as lipotropics. Lipotropics are natural supplements that help your body use stored energy while sparing lean muscle tissue.
Adding the right fat burners to your program gives you an extra edge that may be needed to jumpstart your weight loss. Here are my recommendations when it comes to the supplements you should be adding to your plan—your fat loss stack.
KNOCKOUT PUNCH #1: LYNFIT CUTTING EDGE
LynFit Cutting Edge does exactly what the name indicates—gives you the cutting edge when it comes to fat loss. This blended supplement contains the most effective ingredients in the exact amounts your body needs for effective, advanced fat burning, without stimulants or harmful ingredients.
LynFit Cutting Edge contains over a dozen of the most effective fat loss nutrients, but in this article, I will cover only a few (more on the remaining ingredients later).
Nutrients found in LynFit Cutting Edge are also involved in the metabolism of fats and the conversion of protein and fat into usable energy, so you use more (burn it off) and store less. Without these fat loss nutrients, your body cannot adequately metabolize fat, unless you're one of those lucky ones who lives naturally lean without trying (not me!).
B vitamins (also known as B Lean nutrients) activate the fat loss process while helping your body break down and utilize the food you eat.
Choline: The B vitamin is the first fat burning soldier among the lipotropic ingredients. Its main function is to regulate the amount of fat that accumulates in the liver. The liver is one of the body's storage sites for excess fat. Choline also helps to emulsify cholesterol, preventing it from up artery walls or the gall bladder. Furthermore, Choline helps rid the body of toxins, poisons, and any drug residues. This especially important as these toxins can prevent or slow fat loss.
Everyone, especially any family members that aren't eating right, should be on this health-protecting supplement. While LynFit Cutting Edge is a great fat burner, it's also a great health builder.
Inositol: Inositol is Choline's partner-in-crime and is closely related. This nutrient stimulates the body's production of lecithin—a lipid-based component in the body that transports fat from the liver to the cells to be used as energy. Inositol is an important player because it regulates the fat metabolism, allowing you to get lean more quickly while your body stays healthier. Inositol also helps to reduce cholesterol by preventing build-up in the arteries that lead to narrowing.
L-Carnitine: L-Carnitine is one of the very best fat burners. It is made by the body but can also be found in foods; namely, the ones you shouldn't be eating if you're trying to get lean—such as red meat. That's why supplementing is critical when it comes to fat loss. L-Carnitine's main function is to transport fat that's floating around and carry it into the cells to be burned off as energy. That how it got its name, "The Transporter."
This is even more important if you work out because it snags fat while it's circulating around after you've worked out and makes sure it gets transported into the cells and burned off instead of being re-stored. When we work out, there's no guarantee that the fat that's released is burned off. That's why even the leanest fitness models and bodybuilders take (2) LynFit Cutting Edge before they work out, and again afterward, despite their diets being as lean as possible. (Did you know that even the leanest foods can be converted to fat if you overeat?)
L-Carnitine is a superstar because it also stimulates the adrenal glands, aiding in reducing inflammation, further helping the body use its stored fat as fuel.
L-Carnitine also helps repair muscles, joints, and the liver—good news if you're trying to get lean or have heart disease.
Chromium: Adding this mineral to LynFit Cutting Edge is a no-brainer because it's been shown to help reduce blood sugar levels/glucose tolerance. Why is that important? Helping your body deal with glucose means that glucose gets transported to be burned off and used for energy instead of being stored as body fat. This keeps energy levels balanced, avoiding low blood sugar levels.
To make a long story short—fat loss is almost impossible unless you manage your blood sugar levels. The more weight you have to lose, and the more fat you store around your stomach, hips, and thighs, the more you need help when it comes to jumpstarting your weight loss and melting fat from your body.....no matter how much you exercise.
This is one of the most overlooked steps when it comes to weight loss. It's actually what makes LynFit programs different from all the rest. It's why they work so much faster. LynFit programs attack the source of the problem—it's all about blood sugar. If you can lower your blood sugar levels, you will lose weight. However, we live in the real world, and we don't always eat like we're supposed to. That's where a little support from the smart use of safe supplements comes in.
Here are sample metabolic boosting usage schedules. Take note to always take your supplements with a full glass of water, and drink it all. Better yet, open the capsules and pour the contents in your LynFit Complete Protein Shake for maximum absorption. (NOTE: This may change the flavor of your shake a little so practice first and make sure you can handle it.)

Cheat days are the most important days to make sure and take your supplements. It's best to take them 30 minutes before you indulge. What's more important is that you take them even if it's after or during your upzig (planned cheat) to offset any damage you may be doing.

KNOCKOUT PUNCH #3: LYNFIT PURE OMEGA 3
Add LynFit Pure Omega 3 to the mix and you're really going to see and feel the difference. Even your doctor will notice the difference the next time you have blood drawn. You'll be healthfully nourished, and here's why: The omegas found in fatty fish and LynFit Pure Omega 3 are a very special dietary fat that has a long list of health benefits—too many to list here in this article.
One of the many benefits is that it's helpful when it comes to melting fat in stubborn areas. The DHA and EPA that this high-level Omega 3 contains help speed up the loss of body fat while preserving lean muscle tissue when trying to lose weight, keeping the metabolism from slowing down.
Unlike eating fats, Omega 3 is almost never stored as body fat. Even if you're eating fatty fish such as salmon twice weekly it's still a good idea to add LynFit Pure Omega 3 to your stacking strategy. LynFit Pure Omega 3 is unique in that it contains the exact amounts of DHA and EPA your body needs. It is purified (that's how it got its name) to remove any contaminants so all you get is an Omega 3 that's so pure you'll see and feel the difference the very first time you take it.
Store-bought brands don't deliver these results, and that's the very reason you'll never find a LynFit product in any store. We refuse to lower the quality, and we keep our standards too high for any store to make a profit. My whole family takes LynFit Pure Omega 3, even our five dogs, two ferrets, and a hedgehog—all rescues. Only LynFit Pure Omega 3 contains the ultra-concentrated natural marine lipids, which is where Omega 3 fatty acids are found in pharmaceutical dosed recommendations. Not all commercially available Omega 3s have the fats you need, and some may even contain the fats you don't need.
Take the test and see for yourself. In two weeks of taking LynFit Pure Omega 3, you'll be able to see the dramatic results of cholesterol and triglyceride lowering effect on your blood tests. The doctor will wonder what you've been doing to get those results.
I suggest you take 1–2 LynFit Pure Omega 3 daily. I take mine at 3 p.m. with my afternoon Complete Protein Shake to help balance blood sugar levels, boost mood, and keep me feeling full, so I don't end up snacking. I take another at bedtime along with my LynFit Lean Sleep to help me sleep deeper and stay asleep longer without waking up. Taking it at night also helps my body repair while I'm sleeping, so I wake up less achy.
I hope you have a great summer and keep it lean!
P.S. Hopefully you're drinking LynFit Complete Protein Shakes for breakfast to boost your metabolism by 25 percent and block cortisol levels (stress hormones that stop fat loss). Make sure you're not adding almond milk or fruit to them. You want your body to stay in constant fat loss mode, helping you stay lean while you're enjoying life in the real world.
Only LynFit Complete Protein is ultra-purified to remove the lactose (the sugar found in most protein shakes, yogurts, and smoothies that cause stomach distress and is better used for weight gain). This quality and purity are what make LynFit Complete Protein the very best protein you can buy. If you're not seeing results, you're not using LynFit.
LynFit Complete Protein contains the highest amount of leucine, which is critical to losing weight and keeping it off. Leucine is used to help the body manufacture the mini acid, alanine. Alanine is used to produce glucose in the liver which means you have more fuel circulating in your body while you're dieting, helping to spare your muscles from being used as fuel; also known as muscle wasting.
LynFit is also the only company who uses the same high quality, ultra-filtered, whey protein in their protein bars. Other protein bars use the whey that is thrown away to reduce costs, but it also reduces their effectiveness when it comes to losing weight and shedding body fat.
That's the LynFit Difference!

Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Tired?
Fatigue and lack of energy are the #1 health complaint of all ages. In fact, lack of energy is why most diets end up failing. Most of us go around complaining about being sick and tired of being tired all the time.
The truth is, if you're tired all the time, your body is trying to tell you something. If you listen to it, you just might learn why you're tired all the time, even after having a good night's sleep. The solutions are easier than you think and can reboot your energy fast.
PROBLEM #1: Lack of Quality Sleep
GAME PLAN: Swap out the liver clogging drugs for a more natural approach that won’t harm your health, which is what makes you tired. You'll not only have the best night’s sleep in your life, but you'll also be helping to burn off belly fat.
LynFit Lean Sleep is the perfect natural remedy. LynFit Lean Sleep is a drug-free sleep aid for the relief of occasional sleeplessness that can contribute to abdominal fat storage. It promotes restful sleep and better overall health while reducing anxiety that causes fat to be stored. It is specifically designed for weight loss.
Most sleep aids are made with ingredients that slow our metabolisms and interfere with weight loss. LynFit's Lean Sleep is made from the highest quality melatonin that works fast and will not leave you feeling groggy in the morning or slow down your metabolism the way other sleep aids will.
PROBLEM #2: Poor Dietary Habits — Not eating enough protein
GAME PLAN: Eat at least one gram of protein per pound of lean body mass/weight (your goal weight), making sure to choose the best sources of lean protein. You should be choosing from whey such as LynFit Complete Protein (whey has the highest PER—Protein Efficiency Rating), fish, and egg whites.
You should be starting your day with whey instead of carbs and excess sugars, which are commonly found in fruits.
Snack during the day on lean, clean protein. Swap out the high-sugar protein bars, shakes, and gourmet coffees for a leaner snack that provides more sustainable energy, so you don't crash later on in the day.
Have a 4–5 oz. portion of fish for dinner—you get more protein with fewer calories than eating chicken. Fish is easier to digest, and you'll reap the benefits faster vs. a slower, high-fat protein. Have you noticed how tired you feel after eating a steak? Now you know why.
NOTE: If you are working out or over age 40, your needs may be even higher. Choose your proteins wisely or you're likely to take in too much fat.
PROBLEM #3: Your Body Lacks the Essential Nutrients It Needs to Stay Healthy —Stress, weight loss, workouts, and alcohol can deplete your body quickly which increases your nutritional needs.
GAME PLAN: Nourish with LynFit Daily Power Shot daily. LynFit Daily Power Shot contains over 90 nutrients and 60 trace minerals (your body doesn't produce minerals).
Nourishing your body with LynFit Daily Power Shot is even more important for anyone who has health issues, is hypothyroid, or works out. Swap out the branded energy drinks you see on television that may provide a "quick fix" but leave your body even more depleted and undernourished. Take a shot of LynFit Daily Power Shot instead and nourish your body while boosting your energy naturally.
Why should you take LynFit Daily Power Shot every day?
- Fast and easy to drink
