What Your Body Is Telling You When It Aches
"ITIS" means it's coming from inflammation. Whether it's sinusitis, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, or fibromyalgia, your body is telling you it needs additional nutrients to heal. Believe it or not, pain is positive as it's your body's way of saying "you're not taking care of me!" As we age or overdo it, our bodies require very specific nutrients daily, and lots of them, to get the job done. This makes your diet and supplement program more important than ever!
But what you may not know is that all of those over-the-counter pain meds (especially prescriptions meds) may be part of the reason you ache. Not to mention, they slow down your metabolism. Pain medications block the healing process, versus helping it and may cause rebound pain. Now, I'm not suggesting that you stop cold turkey. But I am suggesting that you begin treating your pain with a more natural holistic approach. This approach will make you feel better fast and save you time and money!
Here are SIX things your body is telling you when it hurts:
- GET UP and MOVE Every day to help remove toxins and bring fresh blood into the area! Don't repeat the same activity that hurt you. Stretching, gentle walking or indoor bicycling works wonders. Do LynFit's Recovery and stretch daily at the pace that feels right for your body.
- DRINK MORE WATER than you think you need. Our bodies need 8-10 glasses of water daily but when we ached we require more to help flush the toxins out. Drink more water and sip hot tea with lemon to help with the emotional side of joint pain and promote faster healing. Aim for 12 glasses of water daily and try floating a lemon or lime wedge in your water to add flavor and make you crave it. You'll drink more.
- Take Pure Omega 3 daily even if you eat salmon 2 times a week! Did you know that taking Omega 3 every day can alleviate joint pain and soreness? LynFit's Pure Omega 3 is unlike any other you can buy at a store because it's purified to remove contaminants that cause joint pain and is always free of saturated fats found in less expensive brands! Now you know why the store-bought brands are so cheap and I gotta tell you that these benefits can only be seen when the right amounts of EPA and DHA are present. You need at least 600mg of EPA and DHA to get these benefits! As you can see HERE, LynFit's Pure Omega meets and or exceeds those levels! When taking LynFit's Pure Omega you'll see and feel the results within 2 weeks!
- DUMP the olive oil. Eating too much olive oil can actually exacerbate joint pain because it contains Omega 6 which decreases your helpful Omega 3, causing joint pain. The only essential fat we are deficient in is Omega 3. So drop all other fats such as olive oil, flax, avocados, nuts and seeds, as they all contribute to weight gain and more joint pain. Even essential fats cause weight gain and add to our waistlines and need to be reduced!
- LOSE WEIGHT drinking a Complete Protein Shake! Losing 5-10 pounds can make a world of difference when it comes to joint pain and getting relief! When we lose weight we release a pressure valve that relieves body pains almost instantly. Every extra pound increases the load on your joints three to five times, so you you're increasing your pain and risk of developing osteoporosis many times being overweight. Lose weight fast be drinking a Complete Protein Shake daily for breakfast to BLOCK pain causing cortisol from rising. Nourish your body with every amino acid it needs for healing and repair.
- BLOCK Carbs and Sugar! High blood sugar levels cause pain to elevate! Following the Slimmer By Dinner Meal Plan keeps blood sugar levels low. That's why it helps you lose weight fast. What else can you do if your blood sugar levels are high? It's also helpful to take (1) Carb Edge before meals, especially the "NOT SO GOOD" ones. Clinical research show it BLOCKS 65% of unwanted carbs from being digested, so they aren't absorbed and they don't raise blood sugar levels. Carb Edge quickly lowers blood sugar levels that contribute to joint pain and will also help you conquer cravings!
If you are one of those people who suffer with daily aches and pains you may want to add LynFit's Recovery Agent as a daily defense. Recovery Agent is a multivitamin and joint healing supplements wrapped into one!

Here is the supplement protocol to re-boot your metabolism and it's what I put people on when they see me in person:
STEP THREE: Add metabolic boosting exercise with my Metabolic Boosting DVD Series 3 days a week and do cardio on off days and you'll be buffed in no time!
PLEASE NOTE: Weight loss results vary by individual. One pound loss per day results are typical when the plan is followed only with LynFit products. Any deviation with other products may impact your results as we don't know what's in those products, only what's in the LynFit product line, which are geared for metabolic boosting and weight loss and are meant to be used together.
Not Losing Weight Fast Enough?
Not Losing Weight Fast Enough?
Did you know the reason most people don't lose weight is that they over-estimate how much they work out and under- estimate how much they eat!
Studies show that the following foods are NOT even reported on food journals and yet they are calorically significant enough to STOP weight loss immediately, yet most people report being on track and following the plan! FYI, it doesn't matter if the food is organic or says 100% natural on the label. If you eat too much it will be stored as fat!
The MOST common under reported foods that STOP fat loss and cause weight gain!
- Chicken breast - A serving is 3 ounces, not more than that.
If you are eating more than that, it may be causing your weight loss to
stop or slow down and definitely stop fat loss.
- A serving is 1 ounce. Who measures these? How much do you really eat?
- Milk - Skim milk OR WORSE half & half, non-dairy creamers, soy, almond & coconut milks added to coffee are almost never reported, yet they add excess calories that stop fat loss and cause weight gain. If you aren’t losing fast enough or your weight loss has stopped, you should limit or not have these at all! They are not the best for weight loss!
The other most common “healthy” food mistakes people make when trying to lose weight are eating; Cheese, Breads, Rice, Pasta, Quinoa and over-eating on fruit!
Here is what I suggest. Be sure you know what a “portion” is! If you can't portion control it, don't eat it! If you don't know what a portion is, look it up by reading the label! If there is no label, DON’T EAT IT! The best foods for weight loss can be found on the Leaner Lifestyle food journal. If you don’t see it listed on the food journal…don’t eat it. It’s that simple!!
For faster weight loss, ONLY eat from the protein, vegetables and free snacks list and you’ll lose weight faster! Only if you are still losing weight or trying to maintain, should you eat from all the lists on the food journal.
For the fastest weight loss, follow the FREE SLIMMER BY DINNER MEAL PLAN (Click HERE To Download The "Slimmer By Dinner Meal Plan") and ONLY choose foods from the protein, vegetables and, of course, free snacks list from the food journal!
If you’re eating foods not on the list, that's what’s stopping or slowing down your weight loss!

2013 Fit & Lean You!
The #1 New Year’s resolution every year is to lose weight and get into shape.
FEAR of failure is the #1 reason most of us don’t reach our goals and we fail because we set goals that don’t excite us enough.
This year set a goal that excites you so much you can’t wait to get up in the morning! The fear will be gone because excitement takes over! That’s how we make BIG changes! Setting goals that excite you is the #1 way to reach your goal and nothing can STOP you except your attitude! Say good bye to the old ways of thinking like “set small attainable goals”. This is worse than no goal at all. If you’ve tried this approach with little success, then I say………………DREAM BIG and go for it! YOU can do anything you set your mind to!
What’s your goal this year? To drop 10 pounds or maybe you have 10 more to go..........do you want to feel better, be healthier or simply fit in your clothes better? DARE to dream, that's how dreams get fulfilled! Obsess on your goal for a while and place sticky notes all over the house reminding you of your goal and how you’ll feel when you accomplish it! Failure isn't an option anymore!
Here are THREE things that GUANRANTEE RESULTS!
1. Power up your metabolism with protein!
Replace your current breakfast or a not so healthy snack with a LynFit Protein shake to boost your metabolism and to offset excess calories. Eating out, parties and stress all cause us to fall off the wagon and drinking a Protein shake daily is the #1 way to lose weight QUICKLY even if you aren’t eating perfectly. You’ll lose weight immediately while you’re learning how to eat for weight loss. Seeing results is what keeps us on track!
*Don’t need to lose weight? Drinking a shake nourishes your body better than any single food you can eat because its gets absorbed quickly because it’s easier to digest.
2. Melt fat and whittle your middle with metabolic style workouts.
Swap your current workout for a 30 minute LynFit Leaner Lifestyle Metabolic workout that melts fat and helps flatten out your abs. Not all workouts produce the results we seek and that’s why you need to change your workout if it’s not producing results. If you only have 15 minutes a day you can still workout at home and get flatter abs and a fitter body. There aren’t any excuses it’s fast, easy and anyone can do it!
Strength training is a constant CALORIE burner and will change your body more than any other type of exercise!
Lift weights three times a week for best results and walk for 30 minutes on alternate days.
*Want to tone, not reduce? Don’t decrease your calories and you’ll increase muscle and get fit without losing weight!
3. Overcome the obstacles that take you off track by trouble shooting them ahead of time.
I crave carbs- The more you eat them the more you WILL crave them. Try Carb Edge and Lean Bars to BLOCK cravings before they begin! The Cutting Edge supplement can help you navigate your way through those tough times by providing nutrients that make us crave in the first place. The LynFit Carb Edge supplement also contain ingredients that BLOCK the absorption of carbs and fat, blocking the rise of insulin which causes our bodies to store fat.
I am tired- Tired, no energy? This is where a cup of coffee and a good supplement loaded with B Complex vitamins like the Daily Power shot helps. Take it 30 minutes before your workout or the Accelerator to increase your energy. They can help you feel better both physically and mentally so you feel like going to the gym and have a better workout. Even people who don’t want to lose can benefit from taking a good blended supplement and the right blend will help you get leaner by encouraging your body to burn fat for fuel.I don’t have the time- That’s exactly why the Metabolic Boost and all of the workouts found in the Leaner Lifestyle DVD series are under 40 minutes that get GREAT results. IF you have 15 minutes you have more than enough time! Less travel = more gym time and better results! You can always break your workout up into 2-15 minute workouts!
Diet Disaster’s that STOP you from losing weight!
Please don’t shoot the messenger! I don’t make the rules…..I just report them! All day long I hear “It was just a little” I only have “it” once in a while. The reality is that you still need to lose weight; you are having it too much! My message to anyone who wants to lose weight is…give the food or drink up for 30 days and then decide if its’ hurting your weight loss or not. We all seem to underestimate our bad behavior and overestimate our good behavior. It’s true! Start keeping an honest food journal and BE honest with yourself. Start writing down every single thing that goes in your mouth as well as how much and what you put on it. Which brings me to my point. Sometimes its not the HUGE things that wreck our diets, most of the time it is the tiny little things that we don’t even think need to be written down in our journals.
Here are the top things that NO ONE ever writes down that will definitely STOP your weight loss.
- Cheese 2 oz of reduced fat cheese = 180 calories and 12 grams of fat.
- ALCOHOL 1 ounce = 90 calories and who uses 1 ounce?
- ¼ cup of trail mix = 640 calories. That’s about 4 handfuls
- Peanut Butter 2 Tbsp reduced fat 190 calories
- Mayonaise 1 tbsp = 100 calories
- Pasta 1 cup of small spirals = 315 calories
The reality is that if you are serious about losing weight these foods have no place in your diet. I suggest that you stay away from them for 30 days so that you can see what an impact these foods have on your waistline. Once you reach your weight goal you can begin putting some of the foods back into your life HOWEVER…what you do to lose weight is also what keeps the weight off so this needs to become a way of life! If we struggle with certain foods the best remedy is to stay away from them. Why fight with yourself! Here are a few solutions that can help you to lose weight and they can replace the foods that are high calorie diet wreckers!
- Cheese-Look for the 100 calorie snacks like cheese it’s or sprinkle parmesan cheese on your salads instead to get your fix.
- Alcohol- Sorry if you’re trying to lose weight in your midsection….none is better than some here. BUT if you really have to go for a white wine spritzer or simply use a smaller wine glass and don’t fill it all the way. WATER IS your BEST SOLUTION!!
- Go for the 100-calorie snack packs! If it is salt that you are craving aim for salty snacks if it is sweet aim for a sweet 100-calorie snack.
- Instead of peanut butter go for a peanut butter protein bar that is 100 calories or as close to 100 calories as possible.
- Go for Kraft or Smart balance mayo instead of full fat may and you will only be getting 10 calories per tablespoon.
- Use veggies instead as a base for your tomato sauce/gravy and top it with a turkey meatball!
If you can’t portion control it DON’T EAT IT! You will better off and you will feel better I guarantee it!
EXERCISE SLUMP BUSTERS THAT WILL GET YOU FIT FAST!
Every one of us has been in an “EXERCISE RUT” before. There are a few tricks that can break you out of that exercise rut. If you have been working out for a while you know what I am talking about. The good new is that you will see results immediately because the workout techniques that I am going to show you will “SHOCK” your body into change. Remember to give yourself a pat on the back for sticking to your workouts because even so-so exercise will keep you on the fit side versus getting more out of shape everyday which is the NORM in this country. Remember, that which gets appreciated gets repeated! This is the law of the universe. When we beat ourselves up we tend to get even more depressed and we will do even less exercise. As a fitness coach I always get people to spend their time and energy making plans to get ahead instead of spending their time looking backward at what they didn’t do right!
This trick that I am going to give you is one of the tricks of the trade that we use to get people (usually celebrities) in shape very quick! If you are a beginner, start out a little easier BUT, if you are in any kind of shape…………………GO FOR IT!!!!!!!
Five rules to remember:
- Always use as heavy a weight as you can lift safely. Don’t go easy on yourself, you can always drop down to a lighter weight
- Choose one exercise per body part.
- Do not rest in between sets EVER!!!!!!-Your heart should be pounding or you are not working hard enough!
- Set a timer. This workout should not take you more than 30 minutes if you are trying to burn fat. If you want more size you can simply go slower and eat more calories!
The WORKOUT: These are just a few of the exercises to give you the basic idea.
- Deep squats
- Stiff leg dead lifts
- Shoulder presses
The difference between this workout and the same old same old is that you will be doing 100 repetitions of each exercise using the heaviest weights that you can safely lift. YES, that was 100 reps. Remember if you keep doing what you have always done you will get what you have always gotten!!
Fat burning- If you are trying to burn fat or lose weight, you need to be doing cardio everyday for 60 minutes and you should be drinking a protein shake for breakfast along with a fat burning supplement like The Cutting Edge Formula.
FIVE WAYS TO FINE TUNE YOUR FAT LOSS
FIVE WAYS TO FINE
TUNE YOUR FAT LOSS
If you have been eating pretty healthy and faithfully going to the gym but you still see extra fat hanging around, you need to “Fine Tune” your diet to trick it into burning fat for fuel.
These five “small” things can make a bigger difference than you think. They are easy to fix and you really won’t miss them. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard “I removed the milk and sugar from my coffee and………I LOST FIVE POUNDS”! Let’s assume that you are already eating clean foods like chicken breast without the skin, butter isn’t even in your vocabulary and that you hardly ever eat red meat. Of course you are also going to the gym 6 days a week to do cardio for 45 minutes at a clip (this is a must for fat loss), and you lift weights 3-4 times per week. When these things just aren’t making your body burn fat then it is time to “Fine Tune” your diet to get your body to burn fat as fuel. After all, that is why we go to the gym right? Not if you are eating the wrong kinds of foods. If you are eating high fat-high sugar foods than all you are burning for fuel at the gym is your last meal if you are lucky. If you are eating correctly your body will burn off that extra body fat that you see staring back at you every time you look in the mirror.
Here are FIVE things that you can do to remove fat and calories from your diet so that you burn more fat at the gym.
1- Remove the yolks from your eggs and save 7 grams of fat per yolk. Keep in mind that you should be aiming for 20 grams of fat per day max so if you eat three eggs per day you are saving 21 grams of fat!
2- Drink your coffee or tea black without sugar. It’s ok to add a little equal or splenda but if you add 2 teaspoons of sugar w/2 tablespoons of cream you are consuming 105 calories, 6 grams of fat and 12 grams of carbs that come from sugar. So if you drink a light coffee on your way to the gym all you are burning is the coffee that you just drank. What a waste! Go for it black and you can lose 1 pound a month just eliminating 1 cup of light coffee per day.
3- Use fat free dressings. Always chose fat free dressings or vinegar and lemon juice for your salad. One tablespoon of oil has 120 calories of pure fat. Translation: You wont burn fat at the gym!
4- Remove cheese from your diet if you are really serious about losing fat. 1 ounce has 9 grams of fat and who eats 1 ounce? Crumbled feta is even higher in fat! It has a whopping 15 grams of fat per 2 ½ ounces so if you want to burn fat run away from cheese!
5- Take L-Carnitine. When all else fails and you need that little extra help getting your body to burn fat as fuel go for supplements that contain L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is an amino acid found in red meat. Science has shown that L-Carnitine transports fat into the cells to be burned as fuel. It is safe and effective for long-term use. Who doesn’t want that extra edge?
