Teach Your Body To Burn More Calories All Day Long
Right now your metabolism is busy, working to burn calories and melt fat. Every time you eat, enzymes in your body's cells break down the food and turn it into energy that keeps your heart beating, your mind functioning, and your legs walking. It's the sum of everything your body does. Your metabolism is busier than you might imagine.
The process is quite simple; the faster your metabolism, the more calories your body burns doing everyday functions. The more calories you burn, the easier it is to lose weight. The good news is you can increase your metabolism, so it works harder all day, helping you lose weight faster and easier. You really can teach your body how to burn more calories all day long.
For most of us, our metabolisms hum along at a preset rate /speed determined by age, gender, and genetics. The bad news is, if your over 35, have been overweight or have done your share of diet research (tried many diets), what you might not know could stop you from losing weight and severely affect your body’s ability to burn off excess fat now stored on your belly, hips, and thighs.
The good news is you have a huge amount of control over your metabolic rate—more than you think. Making a few simple changes to your daily routine can boost your metabolism, turning that slow metabolism into overdrive, so you not only lose weight faster and easier, but your body also begins to melt fat.
It can be as easy as eating the right foods vs. the wrong ones. The real secret sauce for building a red hot, sizzling metabolism is to start your day with whey protein. Whey protein not only builds your metabolism, but it also boosts it by 25 percent as well. Be aware; vegan and dairy proteins won't do. It must be high-quality whey protein.
Where can you find this high-quality whey protein? You can find it in both LynFit Complete Protein and LynFit Lean Bars. LynFit whey has the highest PER (Protein Efficiency Rating) due to it containing the amino acid, leucine. LynFit whey is fast-acting and preserves muscle tissue so you won't muscle waste, which slows metabolism. That's why drinking high-quality whey is called "building the metabolism."
Now that you've got your metabolism built up and revving at a high rate, there are still additional issues to overcome to keep the fat burning at full throttle.
If you have excess fat stored around your belly, hips, and thighs, you have enough evidence to point to your blood sugar levels being out of whack, making supplement usage a must if you're serious about melting off that fat and getting lean.
First things first: To get your body to burn fat you need to lower those blood sugar levels. In order to lower blood sugar levels, you need to be eating clean. This is where an effective supplement stack that attacks fat from every angle, starting with appetite suppression and reducing cravings is imperative.
Supplement stacking has been used for decades and is the most efficient way to reach your weight loss and fitness goals, especially when it comes to leaning out and reshaping your body. This technique is highly effective with even the leanest athletes, so, as you can imagine, it's even more effective with people like me and you, because we have more fat to lose. But again, always remember—nothing works better than eating a clean, metabolic boosting diet (more information about thermogenic eating can be found in The Metabolism Solution).
The goal is to teach your body to burn more calories all day long, even when at rest. However, this is almost impossible to do if you're eating excess fat and carbs (refer to The Metabolism Solution for how much fat you should be consuming daily). While you may only care about the end result, it's important that you understand how supplement stacking works. Today, we're going to examine supplement stacking with LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator.
After getting your metabolism boosted, the next step is to lower your blood sugar levels while boosting thyroid production, which tends to slow when you decrease caloric intake. Slowing your thyroid production is exactly what you DON'T want to happen when you're trying to burn off excess fat.
It's natural for thyroid production to slow down as you age and reduce caloric intake, so stimulating it is essential.
NOTE: This is especially critical if you suffer from hypothyroidism. Not to worry if you're currently taking medication for hypothyroidism—in fact, you need it, as thyroid medication doesn't cure the issue; it only treats the symptoms. That's why you didn't lose weight when you began taking it. And that's why this program is designed for you.
The ingredients that work best for thyroid support are Coleus Forskohlii and Guggul extract, both of which are found in LynFit Carb Edge, in the exact amounts your body needs.
LynFit Carb Edge is the best multi-stacker because it helps you manage carbs by killing your cravings for them and blocking them when you do eat them, so you absorb less of them. Even if you're not eating a lot of carbs, it's still important to take LynFit Carb Edge to help balance blood sugar levels and reduce insulin spikes that can occur even when eating healthy foods. White kidney bean extract is wonderful for controlling insulin spikes, and LynFit Carb Edge contains it.
Taking LynFit Carb Edge is the equivalent of taking over 15 of the best fat-burning supplements, all wrapped into one. While this does save you money, more importantly, LynFit Carb Edge is properly blended using the highest quality ingredients, so you'll see and feel results fast.
Every time you take LynFit Carb Edge you get the exact amount of each nutrient, custom-blended for maximum results, saving you time and money. You won't need those other expensive extras that you never take.
THE "B-LEAN TEAM": Your body's need for B vitamins is increased when you're dieting or stressed. The combined action of these B vitamins can be energized quickly and help promote weight loss. They help the body properly metabolize and process foods you eat — B1, B2, B5, B6, and B12.
Niacin, also part of the B Lean Team, also known as B3, has special properties when it comes to fat loss. Niacin helps to release stored toxins stored in fat cells, helping with the detox process and easing cravings when trying to kick bad eating habits.
NOTE: Niacin can make you feel flushed, especially when you first begin taking it. Not to worry—it will pass quickly. The flush is attributable to the niacin working its way through the bloodstream, cleansing it, removing toxins.
Chromium is a mineral that helps move carbohydrates into cells to be used for energy vs. being stored for fat. Chromium also helps balance blood sugar levels to help avoid low energy dips, helping to ease cravings and decrease hunger.
Potassium is a mineral essential for good health and can assist with weight loss. Potassium can improve blood pressure, fatigue, stress, headaches, and glucose transfer, which affect weight. It also helps to maintain proper electrolyte balance in cells.
White kidney bean extract blocks unwanted carbs from being absorbed (great for cheat meal days — you should take it right before your cheat meal, so you don't destroy your diet) and help balance blood sugar levels that being overweight can knock out of whack. It also helps to kill cravings and reduce hunger.
Forskohlii helps heat up the area where fat is being stored while encouraging fat loss in troubling areas. It helps to keep your thyroid function at full capacity, so your metabolism doesn't slow down, even with a reduction in caloric intake. Can you say, "busting through plateaus?"
Guggul extract has too many good things to list, but the main reason it's in LynFit Carb Edge is due to it stimulating thyroid function, so your body burns more fat, even at rest. Guggul also helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides.
Banaba leaf is great for diabetics because it helps reduce and balance blood sugar levels, effectively reducing hunger and cravings while enhancing your metabolism and melting belly fat. Studies have shown that Banaba leaf can help lower blood sugar levels within 60 minutes of taking it.
Black tea is better than green tea when it comes to reducing appetite and boosting weight loss. In European studies, black tea has been shown to reduce the urge to binge, making it the perfect team player when it comes fat burning.
Suma root is an adaptogen that improves cellular health, increasing the body's ability to adapt to metabolic stress and response under stressful conditions.
Tyrosine is an amino acid that helps nourish thyroid function and is also involved in manufacturing other helpful weight loss hormones that regulate metabolism. One of those is norepinephrine, which is one of the key hormones in the body that stimulates thermogenesis and the breakdown of stored body fat.
Alpha lipoic acid breaks down carbohydrates (sugar) and speeds the removal from the bloodstream.
When you restrict your diet to lose fat and combine that with a metabolic boosting workout you may start to feel your energy levels slump. This can cause your cravings to spike up. Supplementing with a thermogenic fat burner that targets your body's fat receptor sites and encourages it to release stored fat may boost energy while minimizing food cravings.
LynFit Accelerator with raspberry ketones and green tea tricks your body into acting like a thin person by raising the metabolic rate and reducing hunger hormones while lowering blood sugar levels. LynFit Accelerator forces your body to release stored fat to be used for fuel while helping to reduce cellulite, effectively breaking down fat and converting it to energy and naturally lowering cholesterol levels.
Raspberry ketones have an anti-obesity effect, meaning they inhibit weight gain. Raspberry ketones do not work well alone; that's why LynFit Accelerator is stacked with the most effective fat loss ingredients such as green tea, chocolate bean powder, B6, and B12.
Green tea boosts metabolism and promotes a feeling of well-being. The truth is when you feel better you eat better.
Chocolate bean powder has been known to create a feeling of fullness and suppress appetite. Chocolate bean powder is loaded with health-protecting antioxidants.
Chromium is a trace mineral that helps lower blood sugar levels, reduce cravings for carbohydrates, and decrease appetite.
B6 and B12 boost energy you need when trying to lose weight. They promote fat loss by boosting metabolism, so you burn more calories all day long. B vitamins help your body metabolize carbs and fats, making them easier to be burned off vs. being stored.
LynFit Accelerator does contain caffeine to ensure delivery of these helpful nutrients. There is no need to worry, however. LynFit Accelerator contains less caffeine than a small (the old-fashioned small) cup of coffee.
For an even better boost, open the capsule and pour the contents into your LynFit Protein Shake. It gets absorbed and utilized by the body faster.
NOTE: If you're prone to anxiety you may want to consider switching to decaf coffee or start slowly by taking ½ a capsule. Avoid caffeine while taking LynFit Accelerator until you see how you feel taking it.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS FAT BURNING COMBO?
- Everyone, male or female, who is trying to lose weight
- Anyone who has fat stored, especially those hard-to-lose places like belly, hips, and thighs
- Anyone who has ever been overweight in their lifetime
- Anyone who has a sluggish, dead metabolism (almost all females)
- Anyone who struggles with blood sugar control (especially diabetic and pre-diabetic)
- Anyone who struggles with cravings for carbs and sugars
- Anyone with low thyroid function or thyroid disease (LynFit Carb Edge can be taken with thyroid medication; however, it's always a good idea to consult with your doctor to make sure)
So, if you feel like you've been doing everything right with diet and exercise, but when hunger strikes your willpower dies, and you need help crushing cravings, LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator are for you.
Are you ready to shed the weight and watch the fat melt off? Optimize your metabolism, say goodbye to cravings, and transform your body into a fat burning furnace today!

You're Stronger Than You Think!
Your body is programmed to protect itself from the discomfort of exercise. Your brain will try to slow you down or stop, even if you can physically push harder. If you want to become healthier and more fit, there are some specific things you will want to know that will help you reach your goals faster and easier. More importantly, you’ll become stronger. You’re stronger than you think. It’s just a matter of believing.
STRENGTHEN YOUR MIND
Challenge yourself if you want to change. You can learn to embrace challenge if you're serious and ready for a change. Challenging yourself will pull you out of your comfort zone, where the most dramatic changes occur. A comfort zone is a behavioral space where behaviors are routine. This minimizes stress, but it doesn’t produce change. If it doesn't challenge you, it can't change you. No changes = No changes!
The next time you’re about to quit, try going one minute longer or remind yourself that you won’t die if you miss dessert or ignore cravings for the wrong foods. Each time you talk yourself out of quitting and walk away from eating junk food, or beat your old benchmark at the gym, you’re chipping away at that mental block that’s been keeping you stuck where you are. It all starts with how you think, so watch your thoughts—they become your actions.
STRENGTHEN YOUR BODY
Do you want a strong, healthy body? Whether you’re working toward a 10K or any goal for that matter, it’s as easy as following a few simple steps consistently. Every time you choose to consistently do something good for your body, the dividends pay off—big time.
- Boost energy with vitamins and minerals instead of sugar and carbs. Is lack of energy your excuse? Instead of reaching for sugar and carbs that send you crashing after a workout, give your energy a boost with vitamins and minerals instead, to nourish your body rather than depleting it. LynFit Daily Power Shot is the perfect solution to your energy needs.
- Lift weights twice weekly to keep your muscles tightly toned and your metabolism boosted. Yoga, Pilates, and Zumba are all great, and while they beat the couch, they don’t count when it comes to lifting weights. It's simple science, so start lifting. All you need is a pair of dumbbells and a floor. No dumbbells, no problem—use any heavy object you have lying around.
Walk more than you think you need to. Your body was designed to move every day. In fact, you require 10,000 steps daily to stay healthy. When you rest, you rust, so get up and get moving. You'll be healthier, physically and mentally.
The best part about walking is you can do it anywhere. Everyone can walk, even if it's walking the dog. Even people recovering from open heart surgery walk. Track your steps using an inexpensive pedometer vs. a Fitbit®. Fitbit's® track all movements, including your arms, so it's not accurate enough.
Recover and reboot your energy by feeding it right. If you want to be strong, you've got to do more than just work out. You also have to feed your body right. To keep your body strong, you need to make sure it's getting the fuel it needs to recover. Diet is responsible for 90 percent of success. Feed it to boost results, no matter what your goal is. If you're not seeing the desired results, chances are you're not eating right.
Replace lost nutrients and protein with a healthy smoothie after your workout. Whey is the best choice because it's loaded with essential amino acids and has the highest PER (protein efficiency rating) of any other food. Whey is a Ferrari where all others are a Ford Focus. Taste counts too. If it's not delicious, you won't drink it consistently.
Try this delicious Birthday Cake Protein Shake recipe after your workout to replace the protein your body needs to heal and repair, so you become stronger.
(2–3 scoops) LynFit Vanilla Complete Protein
(5) Ice cubes
(½–1 cup) Water (more for a thinner shake, less for a thicker shake)
Blend ingredients together until smooth—Enjoy!
Learning From The "Biggest Losers" Who Couldn't Maintain Weight Loss
If you’re like me, and have been overweight in your lifetime, you know all too well what a struggle it is to keep the weight off. Losing the weight is the easy part. Keeping the weight off is a whole new metabolic boosting ball game.
There has been a lot of controversy about the "Biggest Losers" not being able to maintain their weight loss. I’m going to help separate fact from media hype, so this doesn’t happen to you. I'm going to fill you in on what the stories don't say that you need to know if you’re serious about losing weight and keeping it off for good.
Rule #1 is don’t believe everything you read or see on television. For the most part, just about everything you read or see on television is paid for by a sponsor who wants to sell you the alternative methods that are most likely medical procedures you need to keep the weight off.
I’ve struggled and have all the metabolic disadvantages possible; from hypothyroid to being menopausal, combined with the fact that I love food and live to eat (I think I'm the world’s biggest food addict). All this made losing weight and keeping it off difficult, but not impossible. I was depressed and stuck in every area of my life, but I found that when my food is in order, my whole life falls into order.
There are simple all-natural, highly effective and convenient solutions that anyone can do to lose weight, and if they continue, will keep it off. These simple solutions are a lot less expensive than living overweight, not to mention the emotional price.
The toughest part is dealing with denial. Denial will keep you stuck, allowing faulty thinking and fear to kick in, keeping you stuck exactly where you are. Bear in mind that whatever takes the weight off is also what keeps the weight off for good. Whatever weight loss method you choose needs to be sustainable for life.
Don't let that last sentence scare you. I remember hearing that and thinking, "how long do I need to drink these shakes, take these supplements, and eat like this?" A funny thing happened, however; once I reached my goal weight. For the first time in my life I didn’t want to go back to my old ways of eating. I not only surpassed my goal weight (I was 40 pounds heavier) but also felt better emotionally and had more energy, so I got off the couch. What you see today is a by-product of that weight loss.
Below is what you need to know when reading media reports when it comes to exercise and the "Biggest Losers." I have worked closely with a few "Biggest Loser" contestants, and I can tell you firsthand they struggled because they didn’t have a livable, reliable, sustainable lifestyle in place.
DILEMMA: "Biggest Losers" relied mostly on excessive, joint-damaging exercise every day that is not practical in real life.
The "Biggest Loser" contestants worked out for at least five hours daily, allowing them to eat more calories without slowing their metabolism down. In real life when you have family and a full-time job you can’t work out for five hours. Even if you could, it's damaging to your joints and you shouldn’t. Everything is about balance, starting with eating enough of the right foods.
As a weight loss specialist, I specifically suggest metabolic boosting foods to offset your dead metabolism instead of eating whatever you want. Often the foods you insist on eating are the very foods that initially caused you to gain weight. There are also the health halo foods that cause weight gain. For instance, did you know that if you have hypothyroidism, kale can inhibit your thyroid, making it even harder to lose weight? People are adding kale to their diets, juicing excessive amounts, and even adding it to their protein shakes because the media says to do so.
The bottom line is that things aren’t always as they seem. For the "Biggest Losers", it's not that losing weight affected their ability to keep it off. It's more the reality that they could not continue doing the unrealistic steps that the show had them doing to take the weight off.
DILEMMA: "Biggest Losers" ate more calories than most of us can because they were over-exercising.
In a perfect world this would work fine—eat what you want and exercise it off in the gym. In the real world, it’s just not realistic.
I’ve suffered from this issue. As a trainer and bodybuilder, I ate super healthy yet didn’t lose an ounce. Looking in the rearview mirror, I can be honest and say I was an exercise addict, and this will not work when you're trying to lose weight or maintain weight loss. At some point, your joints can’t take the stress from that excessive amount of exercise, so you have to cut back to a normal, more realistic amount. When this happens, it must also be remembered to cut back on the eating as well.
I don’t know about you, but the days I don’t exercise are the days that I tend to eat the worst, making this the perfect set up for weight gain. It’s not the weight loss that was the problem for the "Biggest Losers", it’s faulty thinking that stops them from achieving their sustainable goals and living a leaner lifestyle.
There are five facts you need to know to lose weight (1 pound a day) and keep it off for life.
- Fact: If you have been, or are overweight, your metabolism is negatively affected and slower.
- Fact: If you go back to your old ways of eating and drinking you will gain the weight back.
- Fact: If you are over 40, have diabetes, or are hypothyroid (it’s even worse if you're female), losing weight is harder for you due to your metabolism being slower.
- Fact: If you can pinch more than an inch of belly fat, losing weight will be difficult for you and will require an aggressive approach vs. the old-fashioned, outdated methods of losing weight slowly.
- Fact: You can’t starve yourself or exercise the weight away, or rely on surgical procedures such as LAP BAND® or gastric bypass to fix the problem.
The bottom line is you’ve got to set yourself up for lasting weight loss success by living a leaner lifestyle.
There are some foolproof ways that are backed by science that will help keep your metabolism running at an optimal speed, so you lose 1 pound a day and keep it off for life if you continue to do what it takes. Just because you lose weight doesn’t mean your metabolism is fixed. It simply means you found the right way of eating to make it work. So why would you ever consider stopping?
Think of it this way: If you found a way to make money, and it began working and changed your life, why would you stop? If you stopped working at that job you would also stop making money. Weight loss is no different.
It's a very emotional journey, and this is what the media conveniently leaves out. One of my favorite sayings from Overeaters Anonymous is, "It works if you continue to work it.” As a metabolic expert, I can tell you that in 25+ years I've never met a person whose body would not let them lose weight, no matter what they were dealing with.
The real question is will that person do what it takes? It’s not a case of "will it work?" It's a case of are they willing to do it and how badly do they want it. I wish someone had told me that while I was overweight and struggling. It would have saved me a lot of frustration and despair. I missed a lot of my life because I hated myself and my body. That’s why I created the Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day Kit. I want to be the change you seek, and I want to make losing weight faster, easier, and permanent!
There's more hope than you think, and here's why.....
Step One on the LynFit System is to drink a LynFit Complete Protein Shake to boost your metabolism by 25 percent. This offsets the slow metabolism issues most of us struggle with. It's what makes the LynFit Complete Protein Shake different from all the rest. It tastes unbelievably delicious while most of the other shakes you find on store shelves are yucky tasting, so you don’t want to drink them. The high quality of whey used in LynFit shakes (LynFit uses a minimum of 80 percent whey compared to other shakes that use 25 percent or less) makes it metabolic boosting while blocking cortisol (a hormone that's secreted when you are under stress). This is something that vegan shakes or lower quality shakes will never do.
You do need to cut calories to successfully lose weight, and this calorie-cutting can slow your metabolism. However, every time you drink a LynFit metabolic boosting Complete Protein Shake or eat a LynFit Lean Bar you trick your body into thinking you've just eaten a big meal. In turn, your metabolism speeds up, keeping you from regaining the weight you've lost. When it comes to your metabolism and weight loss, you have to boost it to lose it. Keep in mind however that not all shakes will do what a LynFit shake does. LynFit Shakes and Lean Bars are specifically designed for this very purpose.
I couldn’t lose weight easily, no matter how hard or how much I worked out. I learned from the pros how to take it a step further since I live in the real world and can’t live five hours a day in the gym. I learned that the smart use of safe supplements to naturally boost my metabolism was another bullet in my leaner lifestyle holster. You too can follow the steps below to further enhance your weight loss or weight maintenance.
There are more ways to make sure your metabolic engine stays running at an optimal pace 24 hours a day. Of course, food is 90 percent of your weight loss success, so if you're not losing you’re not eating the right food for your metabolic engine. Be sure to read more on thermogenic eating and what foods are thermogenic, as well as irresistibly delicious thermogenic recipes in The Metabolism Solution.
If you’re serious about reshaping your body and boosting your metabolism with the right kind of exercise, be sure to check out my metabolic boosting workouts while you’re reading. They are only 30 minutes in length and can be broken up into shorter sessions to suit your lifestyle. You’ll not only transform your body; you will keep getting better, even as you age.
Are you ready to lose that weight for good? Thousands, just like you, already have. They've not only lost the weight, but they've kept it off while living a normal life.

Wedding Day Makeover
If done correctly, fast weight loss isn't always a bad thing. The goal should always be to protect your health and feel good. While waiting to the last minute to get started on weight loss for the "big day" isn't the perfect scenario, there are a few aggressive tricks that can make weight loss faster and easier without sacrificing health.
One of the oldest and most successful ways to lose weight is to deplete your glycogen storage, so your body releases stored fluid, making you feel and look less bloated. It jump-starts and turbocharges your metabolism allowing your body to burn off stored fat vs. constantly having to process your not-so-healthy eating choices. There is a catch, however.....
To deplete glycogen storage and lose weight, you need to reduce calories. However, when calories are reduced your metabolism slows down unless you do the three things listed below.
The bottom line is that food is 90 percent of your weight loss success, so that's where your big focus needs to be. If you're not losing weight as you should, you're not eating correctly for weight loss.
While we've discussed the three Change-Outs used for fast weight loss, there are other ways to boost your metabolism—such as the smart use of safe supplements. Listed below are five Diet Sabotagers and their supplement solution:
- Struggle with hunger, cravings, and depression: LynFit Carb Edge
- Struggle with losing body fat in certain areas: LynFit Cutting Edge, LynFit Accelerator
- Struggle with low energy and fatigue: LynFit Daily Power Shot
- Struggle with making poor snack choices: LynFit Lean Bars
- Struggle with a lack of time to make a LynFit Protein Shake: Eat a LynFit Lean Bar instead
Here's wishing you success in getting into shape for your next big occasion.
It's Time For A Refrigerator Makeover
According to government data, 64 percent of people are overweight or obese, which is defined as being 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight. If you're one of those people, and you're trying to lose weight, the first place you think of heading is to the gym, right? Wrong. Your weight loss journey begins with what you keep in your house. Let's bring it right on home — it's what you keep in your refrigerator. It's time for a refrigerator makeover!
Taking control of your weight starts with taking control over what you eat, and that begins with what you keep in your refrigerator. Studies prove that people eat what is in their immediate environment so it's critical that we fill our refrigerators with the kinds of food that support weight loss goals. Avoid temptation by not keeping the wrong types of food in your house.
In fact, you can actually set yourself up for success by strategically arranging your refrigerator so the foods you should be eating are staring you in the face every time you open the door. Weight loss is 90 percent diet so what you eat matters more than how much you work out. That's why it's so important to arrange your refrigerator this particular way. It's all about having healthy replacements for the foods we love.
First, focus on foods that promote weight loss that you can eat more of. There are specific foods you can eat, called thermogenic, meaning they heat up your metabolism. You'll burn more calories all day long. Thermogenic foods also:
- Re-calibrate your appetite
- Switch off hunger cravings
- Lower blood sugar levels while boosting health
LEVEL ONE: Eye Level — It's all about hydration
Remove the diet disasters: Juice (this includes all vegetable juices) and those so-called healthy milks (soy, coconut, all creamers).
Replace with metabolic boosters instead: Water (try bubbly zero-calorie waters), Iced Green Tea, and instead of milk use Melt Fat Milk (pre-made Vanilla Protein Shake that you can use in your coffee).
Hydrating your body can boost metabolism by three percent vs. drinking fluids that add calories. Using Melt Fat Milk can boost your metabolism by 25 percent instead of slowing it down the way coffee creamers can.
LEVEL TWO: Leafy and Low — The leafy green group
This is the food group that none of us eat enough of because it's easier just to grab the wrong foods that make us gain weight.
Remove the diet disasters: Avocado (high-fat), carrots (high-sugar), and tomatoes (technically a high-sugar fruit).
Replace with metabolic boosters instead: Leafy greens, spinach, romaine, and celery (the slimming superstar). Make sure you cut them up as soon as you get home from the store so you can grab-and-go when you feel the need to crunch.
Every time you eat a metabolic boosting vegetable it's like taking a diet pill. Greens have thermic super powers and rev up your metabolism every time you eat them.
LEVEL TWO (B): Low-Sugar Fruits — Not all fruits are created equal
Remove the diet disasters: Bananas and grapes
Replace with metabolic boosters instead: When it comes to choosing a good-for-you fruit, choose fruits that are full of fiber. The higher the fiber the better blood sugar level control. They will also keep you feeling fuller longer. Go for grapefruit (cleanses the liver which is great for weight loss), green apples (burns off hunger hormones), and Kiwi (full of fiber).
LEVEL THREE: Lean Proteins
Remover the diet disasters: Red meat (this includes pork)
Replace with metabolic boosters instead: When it comes to losing weight quickly and lowering cholesterol choose seafood (especially white fish). Seafood can super-charge your metabolism. Seafood contains iodine that helps enhance thyroid function and contains little to no fat. Keep in mind, the lighter and whiter the fish, the better it is for your metabolism. Choose flash-frozen or tuna in foil packets so you'll never run out.
Conquer Your Cravings For Comfort Food
Nothing makes you crave comfort food more than the long, dark, cold days of winter. Combined with stress, all you want to do is put on your warm pajamas and cozy up by the fire with your favorite comfort food in hand. One thing I’ve learned is to be careful, or you’ll quickly pack on the pounds and feel even worse than you did before you started eating.
After I had lost 40 pounds by giving up my favorite foods, I realized that I missed them. I struggled to keep the unwanted pounds off because I couldn’t stay away from my favorites. I wasn’t willing to gain the weight back, so I needed to figure out a way to eat what I loved, and still lose weight. The solution? Follow the Leaner Lifestyle tips and tricks.
Plan for it and expect to indulge; it’s only a matter of time. If you plan ahead, you can offset the “not so good” calories not by starving yourself, which can slow the metabolism, but by boosting your metabolism instead. This simple little trick puts your body in a fat-burning mode so when cave into your cravings you’ll be able to control the food versus it controlling you. Prevention is the cure, and it’s also the best way not to gain weight.
How do you boost your metabolism safely, so you don’t gain weight when you aren’t eating so clean? It can be as easy as drinking a metabolic boosting whey protein shake, which is by far your best option, or having two egg whites for breakfast, so you start your day off on the right foot.
Why is protein so important when it comes to controlling our cravings?
- Protein is the #1 nutrient that women don't eat enough of (it's also why you crave)
- Protein contains essential amino acids that your body requires
- Protein regulates serotonin, so you feel better fast when you drink the protein shake
- Whey protein blocks cortisol (the stress hormone) that makes your cravings so intense that it makes you spiral out of control
- Whey protein boosts metabolism by 25 percent and switches the weight gaining switch off
Now that we have the science of why we crave out of the way, we can talk about controlling what is on the other end of the fork when we do crave. Doing so will allow you to keep off the pounds and get into the best shape of your life. This is the very reason I wrote The Metabolism Solution and filled it with over 100 delicious thermogenic recipes that your family will love.
Every diet book tells you what not to eat, but they never tell you what you can eat—At least not the kind of foods you like. Let’s be honest, no one craves steamed tilapia and Brussel sprouts. But everyone loves meatloaf and potatoes. The good news is you can eat something hot and eat a lot.
THE DINNER TRICK: Make over your comfort food meal using thermogenic foods such as lean ground turkey instead of red meat. Swap out starchy mashed potatoes that spike insulin levels and cause rapid weight gain with mock mashed potatoes made with cauliflower instead. Replacing the usual high fat, high carb ingredients with thermogenic ingredients instead is a sneaky way of tricking your brain into speeding up your metabolism.
CAN I HAVE DESSERT? Yes! You don't need to give up sweet tooth cravings with a diet. You just need to step outside the box and provide your body with the nutrients it needs (hint: whey protein) to give your metabolism a boost.
Here is a low-fat, low-calorie apple crisp recipe that's sure to cure your sweet tooth craving.
- (3) apple slices
- (½ cup) vanilla whey protein
- (1 cup) of oatmeal mixed with brown sugar Splenda and a tiny bit of Smart Balance
Replacing the usual high fat, high carb ingredients with thermogenic ingredients saves you hundreds of excess calories, fat, and carbs, so you can cheat more often.More information on metabolic boosting exercise and thermogenic eating can be found in The Metabolism Solution.

It’ll help you melt stubborn fat and keep it off for good.
WHAT IS METABOLISM?
Metabolism is the process by which the body breaks down food to produce energy. When we 're young, it's easy to lose weight. We can diet and exercise and easily lose weight. However, as we age, it becomes increasingly more difficult to lose weight. Our metabolism creates the wrong environment for weight loss; such as intense cravings for the wrong foods, fatigue, lack of energy, mood swings and depression. We begin to rapidly pack on pounds, especially around our stomach, hips, and thighs. That makes it even harder to lose weight no matter how hard you try. Our weight gain switch gets stuck in the "On" position as we get older.
By the time you hit 40 (for many of us this starts after graduating high school), our metabolism begins to slow down 5 percent every decade, making it practically impossible to lose weight. In fact, one out of three overweight people have a metabolic issue known as metabolic resistance that manifests itself through such conditions as pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, and haywire hormones that need to be addressed to lose weight—No matter how much time you're spending in the gym.
The good news is that you have more control over your metabolism than you think and can control this metabolic nightmare.
Eat thermogenically to recalibrate your appetite and switch your cravings to "off". It can be as simple as starting your day with LynFit Whey 12 hours after your last meal to boost metabolism by 25 percent while blocking cortisol. This makes it easier to burn off stubborn belly fat.
Take (1) LynFit Accelerator to heat up your metabolism and accelerate weight loss safely and naturally.
NOTE: Not all protein shakes are created equal. This specific whey is the most powerful whey when it comes to boosting your metabolism. It contains the exact amount of amino acids your body needs to feed the muscle, preventing your metabolism from slowing down while starving the fat, so it leaves. It also tastes delicious.
LynFit Accelerator isn't your typical fat burner. It is a multi–ingredient approach that works quickly to reset your metabolism. Unlike single ingredient supplements that don’t work as well, LynFit Accelerator contains the pharmaceutical grade superstar ingredient, raspberry ketones, and contains an ingredient that blunts the hunger signal because it makes you feel full. You'll see and feel a difference in the same day. You won't find this quality on store shelves.
For 30 percent faster results, empty the capsule into your shake.
Burn the fat faster and easier by replacing your mid-morning snack with tea and take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge supplement.
Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge with L-Carnitine immediately after your workout, or 1–2 hours after your Protein Shake for breakfast to persuade your body to burn fat by transporting fat into the cell, so it's guaranteed to be burned as fuel and not stored.
LynFit Cutting Edge is also a multi-ingredient approach that science says is 20-times more effective than single ingredient supplements. It saves you time and money as well.
This is my favorite because the complex in it also helps your brain make serotonin, so you feel good fast. If you’re already working out, you’ll want to take this before and after your workout to force your body to burn fat.
Curb cravings and reshape your body by curbing your munchies before they begin. Munch on a green apple and take (1) LynFit Carb Edge supplement. Carb Edge enhances thyroid function that normally slows down when your trying to lose weight. It balances blood sugar levels that cause you to crave. This is also the trick to changing the shape of your body. You'll see your body lean out and trim down. Most people see results in the same week.
NOTE: LynFit Carb Edge also takes the multi-ingredient approach. It contains white kidney bean extract that blocks 65 percent of the unwanted carbs from being absorbed, so you eat more and absorb less.
You’ll see a difference within the same week. What could be more motivating than that? Get started today!
