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!

Sometimes You Just Need The Right Tools To Spark Change
Have you ever heard the saying, "If you could do it yourself, you would have already"?
I think that's true to a point. And probably why you might still be struggling to lose that five, ten, fifteen or more pounds. You just may be doing the same things, but expecting different results, and that's more than likely not going to happen.
Sometimes, all you need are the right tools to spark that change. Losing weight is always easier with support!
As many of you know, I'm all about finding solutions to the toughest weight loss problems, so I'm a big fan of supplements. They make losing weight easier, especially when they are used correctly. We call this nutrient-partitioning in my world.
Here are some of the ways that the strategic use of specific supplements can help you stop struggling and start losing the same day you start!
LynFit Thyro-Boost: This supplement helps reduce stress levels which can reduce the odds of emotional eating. Thyro-Boost also helps to balance and regulate hormones.
LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost: Taking in adequate Vitamin D can help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a form of depression that can make losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle harder. Vitamin D3 Boost will also help melt off stubborn belly fat.
LynFit Lean Sleep: A good night's sleep just makes everything easier, and LynFit Lean Sleep helps you do more than sleep better, it also works as a powerful antioxidant-boosting immunization, helping to regulate (reduce) belly fat because it helps reduce cortisol levels.
LynFit Pure Omega 3: It helps your body absorb the nutrients you take in, balances blood sugar, and boosts mood. When we feel better, we eat better. Omega 3 also helps decrease the inflammation that can cause aches, pains, and weight gain.
LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore: This two-in-in supplement helps improve digestion and restores gut health so you feel less bloated and your belly returns to flat. Have you ever noticed that when you feel thinner, you eat cleaner? There's a reason for that!
LynFit Accelerator Advanced: This two-in-one supplement naturally boosts metabolism, kills hunger and cravings, reduces blood sugar levels, and primes the body for maximum weight loss.
LynFit Cutting Edge: Cutting Edge helps the body to burn fat, reduces cellulite, and prevents new fat cells from being formed.
LynFit Daily Power Shot: Over 90 essential nutrients packed into one dynamite supplement that nourishes and protects your body by providing it every nutrient it needs to stay healthy while providing natural energy in the exact amount needed in a highly efficient, delicious liquid colloidal form.
Protein, Protein, Protein: Protein should be the #1 priority on everyone's list. Every good diet and weight loss plan should begin with the very best nutrition, and it doesn't get better than LynFit's premium whey protein found in LynFit Complete Protein, LynFit Complete Protein Advanced, and LynFit Lean Bars.
*NOTE: LynFit Nutrition is the only company who uses premium grade whey in their protein bars. It's the only whey to boost metabolism. A nourished, healthy body loses weight easier and craves less.
Improving physical fitness leads to a physiological reduction in stress levels which can also decrease emotional eating, make it easier to sleep and build confidence in every area of your life.
BELIEVING, BEGINNING, AND BECOMING
It's critical that you cleanse and detoxify your thoughts and replace them with believing, beginning, and becoming. If you don't have faith and believe you CAN do it, you'll never begin by taking that first step to becoming your very best.
As you can see, every area of your life directly affects all areas, and that's why a holistic approach works the best.
On the other hand, if you're one-of-those "I'll do it myself", "my way" people, and focus on eating cleaner and getting some exercise, your plan might work until......
The "until" could be something stressful happening, causing you to eat emotionally, and you don't have the right kind of food handy (Protein Shakes and Lean Bars). You could wind up frustrated and fall off your new leaner lifestyle.
Or, "until" could be winter coming or you're just not getting outside enough, causing you to feel sad and depressed. These bad mood slumps can wreck the best plans.
Maybe, "until" is when you can't sleep due to hormones or life, leading to chronic fatigue, which is lethal for weight loss because it makes it harder to prepare healthy meals. That is why we usually grab fast comfort food or extra caffeine.
You get the point :)
There are thousands of "until" scenarios and each one set us up to fail. However, the solutions and tools help set you up for success and a healthy lifestyle change that can last a last a lifetime with continual ongoing success in every area of your life.
On a related note, it drives me crazy when people "think" they don't need supplements to lose weight. The smart use of specific supplements is the best way to guarantee that your body stays nourished and healthy, turning the weight gain switch to the off position while preventing the much feared metabolic shutdown.
If what you've been doing isn't working, it's time for a new way to lose weight. A metabolic boosting approach!
One piece I think you need to consider is the science of cleansing/fasting and the use of the right combination of supplements to promote lasting change.
Metabolic boosting cleansing (the smart way to fast) is at the heart of the Lose 1 Pound Per Day program because it's the key to losing weight fast, and safely. I went into detail about the correct way to cleanse in the blog article, "Cleanse Away Those Unwanted Pounds!" I encourage you to read the article and watch the accompanying video. I'm sure it will bring just the right amount of hope and encouragement. Hopefully, it will get you off your butt and on the road toward losing weight and melting fat off your belly, butt, and wherever else you may need it.
Need even more motivation? Check out the video testimonials and Before and After photos of past and current LynFit clients. And, please send us your photos so we can celebrate your journey with you. Who knows, your story may be the very one that inspires someone else to take that first step!
Happy cleansing, and don't forget to download the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Plan for specific food lists, cleaning water recipes, soup recipes, and dessert recipes clean enough to eat, even while cleansing!

The Best Protein for Weight Loss and Health
If you're not losing weight and melting off belly fat, your protein choices may be to blame. Here's the "411" on why whey protein is the best when it comes to weight loss and melting off stored fat.
Some proteins can boost metabolism and speed up weight loss, while others may slow it down and stop weight loss from occurring at all. Certain proteins have been used by people looking to add bulk and gain weight, and it's critical that you know the difference between the two, allowing you to choose the protein that's right for you, helping you reach your goals. LynFit Complete Protein is not only the best tasting whey protein, but it also provides the best health and nutrition benefits.
Protein is an essential nutrient when it comes to keeping your body healthy and maintaining our busy lifestyles; yet, most of us are deficient in it. This sets us up for lackluster health and slows our metabolism. But before you grab that pre-made (ready to drink) protein shake, you're going to want to know all of the miraculous things this nutrient can do for you and how to choose the right kind.
You'll also need to know how much and when you should consume it for maximum weight loss and health boost. More importantly, why LynFit Complete Protein does this better than any other protein you can buy.
PREVENTS HUNGER AND KILLS CRAVINGS
When it comes to killing cravings and preventing hunger, nothing satisfies like protein. Since protein takes longer to digest it makes you feel fuller longer; great news if you're trying to lose or maintain your weight, especially if you're prone to snacking on unhealthy snacks. A recent study in Nutrition Research (please site ) also reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein reported feeling fuller and consumed
A recent study in Nutrition Research reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein daily reported feeling fuller and consumed fewer calories during the day than those who drank other forms of protein. Whey helps to prevent the blood sugar dips that signal hunger and promote cravings.
BEATS BLOAT AND MELTS BELLY FAT BEST
Whey protein manages your middle better and beats bloat while melting off that stubborn belly fat. Whey's sophisticated structure causes your body to takes calories and burn them as heat rather than storing them as fat. But that's not all; whey has been known to reduce blood sugar, which can also trigger high blood pressure, playing a critical role in decreasing and preventing blood sugar issues. including helping to
Additionally, whey helps manage diabetic blood sugar issues and helps to increase blood amino acids that prevent muscle loss, helping keep your metabolism running at optimum speed, which prevents weight gain.
*NOTE: Diabetes is serious health problem linked to obesity, heart attack, and stroke. That's why choosing the right protein shake is critical when it comes to protecting your health. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 67:749-753, 2013
HELPS PREVENT THE WEIGHT GAIN CAUSED BY STRESS
In order to lose weight, we must control our cortisol levels. Excess cortisol can prevent weight loss and make it harder to keep the pounds off. Cortisol breaks down muscle tissue which slows down our metabolic rate and increases our body fat which becomes a metabolic nightmare.
LynFit whey protein has a reputation for being the best food when it comes to preventing cortisol levels from rising.
Cortisol levels are also associated with bone loss, and while we can't prevent stress in our lives, we can do something to combat its effects — drink a LynFit Whey Protein Shake or eat a LynFit Lean Bar each day.
LYNFIT COMPLETE PROTEIN POWERS UP YOUR ENERGY BETTER THAN JUICING
Energy comes from getting the right combination of nutrients, and protein is one of the most important nutrients when it comes to sustainable energy.
While most of us tend to crave carbs when we need quick energy (that's why we tend to reach for simple carbs), we often forget that these simple carbs also send us crashing shortly after, sending us to look for more food shortly after, despite the fact that we just ate.
It's life-changing once you remember that protein is the better choice. It takes your body longer to digest protein, and in return, it provides long lasting balanced energy, keeping you feeling full, helping to prevent hunger and cravings for the wrong kind of foods.
Studies show that eating or drinking whey protein daily as a part of a diet that's low in fat and cholesterol, can help maintain a healthy heart. After all, your heart is a muscle too.
SO CLEAN IT FEEDS LEAN MUSCLE
Protein is the fuel of choice for your muscles and it helps preserve this precious tissue while promoting fat burning. Everyday activities such as carrying grocery bags and walking all take muscle.
Muscles need the specific amino acids found in "complete" protein to perform, as well as repair after a workout. Additionally, chronic everyday stress, illness, or injury increases your protein needs. Bottom line, our body can't heal properly unless we provide the right kind of nutrients that help it repair, hence preserving the muscle.
LynFit Whey Protein is made from the highest quality source of whey protein, all thanks to its purity and the fact that it doesn't contain added carbs, fillers, fats, or other inferior ingredients such as dairy or vegetarian sources.
How do you know if your protein does all of this? That's simple — if it doesn't say LynFit, it probably doesn't, especially if you purchased it in a store.
LynFit Tip: Your body’s ability to absorb protein and other nutrients is at its peak shortly after you work out or any type physical activity, such as mowing the lawn, shopping, or simply cleaning the house. If you drink a Protein Shake or eat a Lean Bar you'll help your body to be more toned and healthy so you can keep moving and look good doing it.
HELPS SLOW THE AGING PROCESS
Protein helps build muscle, and as we age, we tend to lose muscle tone and strength. But, that can be prevented if you eat sufficient amounts of the right kind of protein every day. Consuming the right amount of protein, spaced throughout your day, is the best way to prevent muscle loss from happening in the first place. And it might also slow down the loss of muscle mass when you are sick or under stress.
It's recommended that we consume 24–27 grams of lean protein at each meal and combine that with weight lifting /resistance training two times per week to maintain strength, boost health and metabolism for the rest of your life.
HELPS BOOST MOOD, EASE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION, WHILE BOOSTING IMMUNITY
Whey protein contains the exact amount of amino acids needed to increase levels of serotonin and regulate the hormones that can wreak havoc on our body, causing symptoms like depression, anxiety, and illness.
We are what we eat every day, and this is even more important when it comes to our mood and mental well-being.
Who needs whey? Everyone!
Kids need protein as they grow for strong muscles and bones (including teeth). Protein is more important for your kid's development than you might realize. But just because they need it doesn't mean you'll get them to eat it. That's where LynFit Protein Shakes and Lean Bars come in.
They can help kids, especially active ones, or kids that suffer from stress, to get enough of the right kind of protein. LynFit's line of Complete Protein products is delicious and nutrient-packed. LynFit Shakes and Lean Bars are simply the best choices. Martha Stewart was my taste tester, and she knows a thing or two about good taste.
The latest research shows that higher levels of protein are needed for adults age 65+ to prevent muscle loss that accelerates with aging. It's suggested that older adults double up their protein intake for better health. Adding these sophisticated forms of protein is the best way to boost health while keeping your cholesterol and blood pressure in check.
A LynFit Whey Protein Shake or Lean Bar a day is the best way to keep the doctor away. Apples can't even compare!

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!

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?

Getting Back On Track With Your Weight Loss
When it comes to weight loss, "tomorrow" is the most dangerous word in the English language. If you're serious about losing weight, and not seeing the results you'd like, it's time to stop living the way you've been living. The price you pay is very high for the cheap thrill that food gives you. In the end, it might even cost you your health. How you're living today directly affects your tomorrow. So, what will you do differently?
I receive emails seeking advice, all too often, from people with a habit of doing a week or two of strict, metabolic boosting eating and then falling off the weight loss wagon into a pile of cookies or store-bought protein bars. They want to know what they can do to stick to the plan, or should they even try. The first thing I tell them is the reason most people fall is that they think they need to be perfect with their eating. It's important to understand that perfection does not exist.
Most of us fall because we become too legalistic about our diets. Rather, our diets should be treated as a habit of making better choices, requiring us to decide what our actions will be. This makes us responsible for our actions, and the outcomes.
You know the old saying; "If you keep doing what you've always done you'll just keep getting the same results. To expect anything different is the very definition of insanity." Quite honestly, there is a lot of insanity surrounding the foods that will keep you from reaching your goals.
Have you ever told yourself; "I'll just have a little"? Sorry to say it, but that little bit is what's stopping you from reaching your goals.
It's at these very times to remind yourself that perfection does not exist. Focus on daily progress, not daily perfection. You have more control than you think when it comes to making food choices. But if you keep falling off the wagon, it's possible you may need a few tools to help keep you on track.
These tools make losing weight faster and easier because they:
- Help kill hunger and cravings that cause you to fall off-plan
- Boost metabolism by 25 percent, so you burn more calories all day long, even while asleep. This is especially important when you decide to go off-plan because it will help keep you from gaining weight.
- Block cortisol (stress hormones) levels from rising, which helps prevent weight gain in the belly, hips, and thighs. Blocking cortisol is more important than you think. Stress causes your body to produce excess cortisol levels, and the only way to melt belly fat is by reducing these levels. It's not an easy job and the very reason you need to attack belly fat with a 1, 2, 3 punch.
STEP #1: BOOST METABOLISM AND BLOCK CORTISOL LEVELS
Looking for a delicious shake recipe that will not only tantalize your taste buds but rev up your metabolism as well? Look no further — here's my Melt Belly Fat Birthday Cake Smoothie:
(½ cup) Water
(3–4) Ice cubes
STEP #2: KILL HUNGER AND CRAVINGS
Here is your supplement stack:
- LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones to accelerate the process and trick your body into acting like a thin person. A lean person will burn fat more efficiently. (If you're highly sensitive to caffeine you may want to skip the Accelerator. The stack will still give you what you need, so follow the steps without Accelerator.)
- LynFit Carb Edge with Forskolin to help enhance thyroid function and balance blood sugar levels, which is the secret to killing your cravings and managing hunger.
- LynFit Cutting Edge to force your body to burn off that stubborn body fat for fuel.
STEP #3: AVOID THE AFTERNOON ENERGY CRASH TO ESCAPE CRAVINGS BEFORE THEY BEGIN
Should you find yourself unable to suppress the urge to eat junk food, adopt the 80/20 rule. You're already following it; you just don't know it.
For the most part, you're eating your favorite foods every couple of weeks — it's inevitable. It's going to happen, and you should expect it. So, the best solution is to plan it ahead of time. If you plan for it ahead of time, you can cheat and still lose weight. Have a little pep talk with yourself. Sit down and tell yourself to try the 80/20 plan.
On the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan, you can eat on plan 80 percent of the time and go off the plan 20 percent of the time and still lose weight. That's the beauty of this plan. In fact, this is the only plan that takes into consideration that you live in the real world, you're human, and that you cheat once in a while.
Planning in advance when you cheat also puts you in control of the binge vs. the binge controlling you. It also changes how you emotionally respond to a binge—no guilt, because it's all a part of your weight loss plan. You'll accept the situation, not struggle in vain against it. You'll eat less and know exactly what to eat, and how much. The scale will go up slightly, but you'll be back on track in no time.
Although there are physiological consequences to binging on junk food, I'd wager that most of the damage comes from the stress we inflict on ourselves—the internal fight and refusal, which only causes us to binge more. The refusal to accept the inevitable situation, combined with the guilt and shame you're piling on yourself for losing that fight.
Here's what the 80/20 plan get you: Acceptance! You learn to accept things you cannot change. You're no longer fighting a battle you most likely cannot win.
I can't think of anything harder or more stressful than struggling with food. I've struggled with it my entire life until I learned about the 80/20 rule.
You can live guilt-free. Guilt about eating junk food can actually cause you to gain weight and depress your immune system. By making a plan to "go off" for a meal as an occasional (1–2 times weekly) deviation from your regular schedule, rather than betraying your body, you remove the guilt. Make a plan, if you plan on losing.
I would encourage you to read this article I wrote previously about how to cheat and still lose weight to keep your metabolism in full swing, and how if you don't, it can alter the physiological effect it has on you.
As Kelly Clarkson says in her song: "Think Before You Cheat" so you don't hurt your health or destroy a month's worth of dieting. Most of the time it's not worth it anyway.
So, eat happily, just don't' forget to boost first!

Natural Weight Loss Support
Is your weight loss stuck? Does it seem that no matter what you do you can't seem to lose those extra pounds? Chances are, you need a little natural weight loss support. I've been using this custom blend of raspberry ketones mixed with ten synergistically combined, highly effective ingredients with my clients to help control weight and cravings.
You may have seen me on the Dr. Oz Show when we discussed how powerfully effective they can be. We showed our very own before and after photos of LynFit clients who used LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones successfully to help them lose weight. Sex, age, and thyroid issues had made losing weight a struggle for them. They had also picked up some bad overeating and snacking habits.
Sex, age, and thyroid issues had made losing weight a struggle for them. They had also picked up some bad overeating and constant snacking habits due to hunger caused by elevated blood sugar levels and head hunger (more on this can be found in the Wall Street Journal Best Seller, The Metabolism Solution).
If you missed seeing those dramatic before and after photos, here they are again. You can experience a change like this as well. As always, LynFit doesn't take any before and after photos. We believe in 100 percent real people, with real results, with authentic photos. Results that were accomplished without spending hours upon hours in the gym. Certainly, metabolic workouts will enhance weight loss, but it's not a necessity.
At this point, it's vital to understand how important quality is. Raspberry ketones are extremely expensive to make. It takes 90 pounds of raspberries to produce one single dose. When you see a free offer or a bottle of raspberry ketones for $9.99, you know it's a scam. Chances are, they were not even derived from raspberries.
LynFit uses only the highest quality, pure ingredients — raspberry ketones included. We call this the LynFit Difference. That's how you get the best results while saving you money in the long run. The result is that you lose more weight, more efficiently.
I spend over 30 hours weekly researching, and searching for, the best crops—testing them before they ever reach a LynFit bottle. If you've ever tried LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones you know just how effective they are. That's why Dr. Oz was so interested in these particular raspberry ketones. In fact, they have now reached celebrity status.
LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones has helped thousands of people lose weight, and keep it off. It has helped to shape and re-shape some of the toughest bodies due to addressing the underlying issues that were preventing people from losing weight. No matter how hard or often they worked out, they just couldn't get the excess fat to burn off. That is until they started on LyFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones.
So, what are raspberry ketones? Raspberry ketone is a natural substance that gives raspberries their natural aroma. Believe it or not, this substance is also found in blackberries, cranberries, and kiwi. It has been added to ice cream and cosmetics as a flavorant. Raspberry ketones work best when combined with the correct amounts of certain ingredients such as B vitamins and green tea, just to name a few.
Raspberry ketones have been around for decades. It is well-known among fitness models, actors, and athletes — and for good reason. It is one of the most effective ways to switch the weight gain switch off, reduce appetite, and kill cravings. It does all this while providing natural energy.
As it's more effective when combined with the correct amounts of certain ingredients, you'll find it partnered with these natural ingredients found only in LynFit's formula:
Green tea leaf extract
- Chocolate bean powder
- White willow bark
Caffeine (less than a very small cup of coffee — 30mg)
Why do you need these natural ingredients? Think of it like this — your car needs many different types of fluids to run efficiently: gas, oil, transmission, brake — if you skip even one, your car won't run smoothly. Sometimes, it may not even run at all. Your body is no different.
Some supplement companies try to sell only the single ingredient. The reason is simple — to increase profits. LynFit cares more about you and your health than the bottom line. Your success is our profit, our bottom line.
I take LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones, as well as LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse, because I've struggled with my weight, intense cravings, and depression my entire life. Now, at age 48, I need the weight loss support more than ever with menopause at my door. Bottom line — I'm not just the creator/visionary of this custom supplement, I'm also a client and daily user out of need.
Where are you today?
- Do you need to bust through your weight loss plateau?
- Are hunger and cravings affecting your weight loss?
- Do you work out, yet your body still won't shed the weight?
- Do you wake up feeling depressed, even when nothing is wrong?
- Do you lack the energy to get through your day, yet alone a workout?
Then LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones is for you. Helping you with all the above is what it does best.
Unlike the popular Garcinia cambogia, 7Keto, and many more "wanna be" supplements, LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones is 100 percent authentic. It will help with the underlying issues that are hindering your weight loss.
In addition to providing your body with much-needed energy, LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones can also help you:
- Lose 2–5 pounds every week. If you combine it with the Accelerated Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan and LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse, you can lose one pound per day. The more effort you put into it, the better your weight loss will be.
- Increase your metabolism, so you'll burn more calories all day—even while asleep. This is especially important because whenever you decrease your calories, your metabolism slows down. Yet, you only lose weight and burn off belly fat when you reduce your daily caloric intake. Natural weight loss support is vital in helping to overcome these issues, especially if you have been overweight, been on the diet yo-yo, and are a female over 35 years of age.
I use LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones and LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse when training fitness models (most have body fat of 15 percent or less — the hardest bodies to get to shed fat without harming health) to get ready for figure competitions, so you can imagine how effective it can be for you.
- Detoxing the body. Being overweight is toxic, so addressing the underlying issues by detoxing your body while burning that stubborn belly fat is
essential for lasting healthy weight loss, and a leaner you.
All these benefits, plus, boosting immunity (weight loss is stressful, which weakens immunity) while.....drum roll, please (and I need these big-time at this stage of my life).....increasing hair growth and improving skin elasticity.
If you're ready to lose that weight and burn off that stubborn fat, especially the belly fat that's hanging over your pants (FYI — this is the worst kind of fat and is terrible for your health), you can do exactly as these other people have done.
I love the Kelly Clarkson song that says, "What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger." If you want to change your body, you've got to change your life. There's no way around it. No change equals no change. Change IS hard, but it's so well worth it. It will never get easier, but you will get better at doing what you need to do. Practice is the only way out.
Here is the simple three-part plan they followed. Don't ever let taking supplements distract you from doing what needs to be done.
How should you take LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones? Take (1) in the morning another at lunch (if you're over 200 pounds, you may need to take (2) to reach optimal dosage).
We suggest switching to decaf when using LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones so you can take both doses without feeling over-caffeinated.
NOTE: At dinner, add (2–3) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse to your regimen to help digest and assimilate your food instead of storing it as fat.
The most popular way for my clients and fitness models to take ketones for optimal results is to open a capsule into the LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Simply put, they drink up their fat loss. Here's a delicious fat-blaster shake recipe for you to try — the Raspberry Ketone Fat Shredder:
- (½ cup) Water
- (5) Ice cubes
- (1–2 scoops) LynFit Chocolate Complete Protein Powder
- (1 cup) Frozen raspberries (strawberries may be substituted)
- (1 capsule) LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones — opened and poured into the shake
- Mix the ingredients in the blender until completely blended and drink up!

You can do this! When you feel like quitting, remind yourself why you started in the first place. Here's a little inspiration, courtesy of LynFit clients who, just like you, chose to Believe. Begin. Become!
