Rev Up Your Sluggish Metabolism Before Lunch

There are some big breakthroughs when it comes to losing excess body fat. If you're trying to lose body fat or maybe you're stuck in a weight loss rut, boosting your metabolism is the solution.

These simple strategies will outsmart your fat cells so that even the most stubborn body fat will melt off. Even the most stubborn areas of your body; like the back of the arms, belly (happy handles too), and of course the hips and thighs, will melt off in a matter of weeks.

These metabolism solutions are perfect right before big events such as proms, weddings, or even beach season. If you follow these 5 metabolism solutions you'll feel better and see results right away. If you don't see results right away you know there is something in your diet that needs addressing, so go back to basics (see my new book, The Metabolism Solution, to learn exactly what they are).

5 Solutions to Boost Your Metabolism and Blast Fat Fast

    1. Kick your metabolism into high gear with metabolic boosting workouts. Perform a metabolic boosting workout such as the Metabolic Booster on an empty stomach. Black coffee is okay, but no milk or sugar in your coffee as they add carbs and calories. For the best results, aim to do three LynFit metabolic boosting workouts weekly. Add cardio daily to turbo-charge your fat loss.

    2. Blast belly fat fast. The secret to blasting belly fat is to take the LynFit Cutting Edge before your workout as it has exactly what your body needs to blast fat fast. These highly effective ingredients may help to lure fat into the cells to be used as fuel. They will not only help you burn off excess body fat, but also help to lower bad cholesterol and boost energy.

    3. Destroy fat with a fat-blasting breakfast after you work out. After your workout swap out your carb-filled breakfast with a LynFit Complete Protein or Advanced Complete Protein Shake. They contain only 120 calories, are low carb and extremely low sugar compared to other shakes. Protein shakes that are made from clean, pure whey will not only boost your metabolism, but they will also block cortisol (the stress hormone that causes us to store fat around our belly) from rising. Whey helps to balance blood sugar levels, which is the secret to getting your body to release fat from storage.

      *Reducing carbs means eating less fruit. While fruit supplies some nutrients it also contains sugar which causes your insulin levels to rise. This stops weight loss dead in its tracks. The worst fruit offender is bananas. Bananas contain 100 calories per 4 inches and a whopping 16 grams of sugar. If you must have fruit, have ½ of a grapefruit - unless you're trying to gain weight and maintain muscle.

    4. Drink ½ of your daily water quota before lunch. Being dehydrated can cause your metabolism to slow down as much as 3%. Nine out of ten times when we think we are hungry we are really thirsty and need to drink more water. Something else to keep in mind: A lot of the calories burned from drinking water come from your body working to bring cold water to 98.6 degrees. So drinking hot water with lemon or hot tea all the time won't be as good at boosting your metabolism as drinking cold water will. Aim for ½ your body weight in ounces daily and take that a step further by drinking ½ of that by noon.

      Example: If you weigh 120 pounds you need 60 ounces of water daily. You should aim to drink 30 of those ounces by noon.

    5. Skip your mid-morning snack. It's okay to be hungry. In fact, it's necessary when you're trying to lose weight. Most of the time we eat out of habit and we really don't need the excess calories. Wait until lunch and always remember you need to keep 3 hours between meals for fast fat loss. Skipping your morning snack is easier than you think and will push your body into fat-burning mode fast

Lose One Pound Every Day Doing One Thing

And what is that one thing you can do every day to guarantee weight loss? It's making sure that you drink a protein shake (or eat a LynFit Lean Bar) to ensure that your body gets the exact amount of lean protein it needs to boost metabolism.

Failing to meet your body's protein requirements slows your metabolism to a screeching halt. But there is a caveat: Not all protein is created equal. In fact, most proteins (commercially purchased protein shakes and bars) are actually geared to help you gain weight because they are made from inferior sources of protein and loaded with hidden fat and sugar. What you are taking with an assumption that it's helping you lose weight just may be sabotaging your weight loss efforts.

Over 25 years ago I searched the globe to find the cleanest, purest protein sources available. I established relationships with world-class flavorists (Martha Stewart was my taste tester) to create an irresistibly delicious tasting shake and protein bar that would boost metabolism to make losing weight easier and faster. It also needed to provide the body with needed amino acids and essential nutrients. LynFit's protein shakes and lean bars had to be made from the highest quality, cleanest ingredients and be free of gluten.

Now LynFit has done it again - Only better this time!
LynFit Complete Protein Advanced
I am pleased to announce the arrival of my latest creation, LynFit Complete Protein Advanced. For all the sluggish, "I can't seem to lose weight" metabolisms, the Complete Protein Advanced is for you!

Complete Protein Advanced contains only 120 calories, 2g of fat and 1g of sugar; making weight loss even better. Complete Protein Advanced comes in two delicious flavors, Vanilla Cream and Chocolate Cream; allowing you to crave what's good for you. See what makes Complete Protein Advanced different along with all the details HERE.

Protein Basics

By now you know that protein is critical for weight loss. But it's also just as important for your overall health. Ask any doctor, nutritionist or trainer. He or she will likely tout protein's benefits for preserving lean muscle as well as its recovery and immunity boosting properties. When it comes to boosting your metabolism and ridding that "hard to lose" belly fat, not all proteins are created equal.

Protein is a macro-nutrient that supplies 20 different amino acids for the human body. Amino acids are necessary and essential building blocks that are used to:

    • Enhance metabolism
    • Preserve lean muscle tissue, help heal and repair muscles and tissue
    • Make hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to cells
    • Form antibodies that fight infection and disease
    • Produce hormones and enzymes that regulate body processes

Protein can also play a role in weight loss. Research shows that eating adequate amounts of protein may help prevent muscle loss while dieting, and promotes satiety; feelings of fullness. Protein also increases thermogenesis which helps the body digest and absorb nutrients. However, that doesn't mean you can eat any kind of protein and still lose weight. As I talked about previously, the wrong kind of protein can actually stop weight loss as it may be higher in fat than than you realize. And since most of us don't weigh and measure our food, we tend to overeat on those foods, consuming too many calories and excess fat grams.

Here's a little Lisa weight loss secret - If you're over 30 and trying to lose weight you absolutely need to replace your current breakfast with a Complete Protein Shake. If your metabolism is really slow, use the Complete Protein Advanced in order to boost your metabolism, provide the needed protein and nutrients without all the excess fat and calories.

How much protein do I really need?

Determining your protein requirements is easy. While trying to lose weight, plan on consuming 1g of lean protein for each pound of lean muscle. If you want to weigh 120 pounds you only need to consume 120g of protein even though you may currently weigh 155 pounds. That is what makes stored body fat flee and in turn, you lose weight.

When is the best time to have a protein shake?

The best time to drink a Complete Protein Shake is within 60 minutes of waking to stop cortisol (the stress hormone) from rising and to jump-start your metabolism so you burn more calories all day long. The second most important time is right after your workout to replenish lost nutrients. Actually, anytime is a good time if it walks you away from "not so healthy" foods that stop you from losing weight.

Speaking of workouts. Just because you worked out doesn't necessarily mean you need to eat. You should only eat or drink a shake if you're due for a meal (has it been 3 hours?). If not, wait until your next meal time and then make that meal a protein drink. Personally, I like to work out first thing in the morning and have my shake immediately after so both of my goals are met in one shake without overeating.

LynFit Protein Shake RecipesHow should I make my shakes?

I think LynFit shakes taste great the way they are, mixed with ½ cup of water and 5 ice cubes. Some people like to add Vanilla Shake to their coffee instead of using milk. Feel free to experiment. Just be sure that you don't add any type of milk. Milk is for gaining weight, not losing weight.

Also, if you add fruit to you shake remember that a ½ cup of fruit is your total fruit serving for the entire day as you're trying to lower your blood sugar and burn fat. Fruit elevates blood sugar and if you've been adding it to your shakes freely that might be one reason why you can't get the scales to budge.

On a cheat day I add ½ of a frozen banana to my shake with (1) tsp of PB2 Chocolate instead of peanut butter. It's a real treat and it satisfies me to the point that I don't look for junk food. Try it; you just might love it as much as me! And make sure to check out all my delicious shake recipes HERE.

Protein facts: What you need to know

Safety, effectiveness and purity

In the United States, protein supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. They are not tested for safety and effectiveness. But, LynFit's are! LynFit's protein supplements are tested and made in a GMP lab (read more about this in my book, The Metabolism Solution) and I drink it myself so you can bet that my hand is always on the pulse. I couldn't live without it!

Creative ideas

You'll find countless protein powder recipes in my new book, The Metabolism Solution. Crepes, ice cream, cookies, anything you crave I have a metabolism solution for. Don't be afraid to dabble in creative ways to boost the protein content of your usual recipes and foods. In the meantime, try these awesome ideas:

    • Add pre-made shake to you coffee or tea instead of milk to boost weight loss
    • Use only water and ice in your shakes when you're trying to lose weight. Stay away from fruit except for your cheat days.
    • Try making your shake using ice cubes make with the coffee you had left over from yesterday or add (1) tbsp of granulated coffee for a real boost
    • Have a shake 30 minutes before you eat out to curb your appetite and cravings
    • Sweet tooth calling you? Have a delicious shake instead. Make sure to see all of my shake recipes HERE.
    • Try putting your shake in the freezer for a frozen treat

Prebiotics: Secret Ingredient That Helps Burn Belly Fat

Secret ingredient in LynFit Lean Bars boosts metabolism and helps burn abdominal and belly fat!

Even Dr. OZ agrees that prebiotics are one of the best weight loss trends and LynFit's Lean Bar is the only protein bar that uses prebiotic fiber.

Prebiotics are better than probiotics when it comes to weight loss and burning abdominal fat, according to researchers. The findings, published October 9th in the Journal of Functional Foods, suggest that prebiotic fiber may help prevent intestinal fat absorption and could be an effective weight loss tool.

"Normally we digest all the food and absorb all the calories", said study researcher Peter Jones of the University of Manitoba in Canada. "We think the prebiotic fiber interfered with the absorption of those calories, so that more calories went out the tailpipe and there were fewer calories to pack on abdominal fat."

What's the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?

Probiotics are live bacteria in yogurt, other dairy products and pills. And while probiotics have been shown effective in managing certain gastrointestinal conditions, they do not have the same power when it comes to weight loss that prebiotics do. First, probiotics are delicate. Heat and stomach acid can kill them, rendering them ineffective before they've even been digested. Also, those who don't eat dairy foods for taste or dietary reasons may find ingesting adequate amounts of probiotics difficult, if not impossible. You would need to overeat on yogurt in order to obtain the amount of probiotics needed to experience change.

Prebiotics (lsomalto-oligosaccarudes/inulin) is a specialized plant fiber that beneficially nourishes the good bacteria already in the large bowel or colon. The body itself does not digest these plant fibers; instead, the fibers act as a fertilizer to promote the growth of many of the good bacteria in the gut. These, in turn, provide many digestive and general health benefits. Prebiotics such as oligofructose enriched inulin (found in LynFit Lean Bars) can change a colon makeup from bad to good, which is favorable when you're trying to lose weight and kill cravings. Prebiotics produce many other health benefits, including boosting immunity.

Why is this so important for weight loss?

There are places within the wall of the stomach and small bowel where appetite hormones are made. These hormones then enter the blood stream and signal the brain. The one in the stomach signals hunger and gives us the desire to eat food. When the different hormone in the small bowel reaches the brain it signals fullness or satiety.

I don't know about you but I don't have a "kill switch" when it comes to hunger and I need all the help I can get. That's why I need to eat at least (1) LynFit Lean Bar every day as a preventative measure.

These prebiotic reduce the blood level of the hunger hormone. The prebiotic makes us less hungry and we all need that. The same prebiotics increase the fullness or satiety hormone so we feel full sooner. If you're trying to lose weight and you struggle with cravings the Lean Bar is the perfect snack.

When trying to lose weight you should eat at least (1) Lean Bar every day because they may:

      • Favorably change the bacterial makeup of the colon
      • Likely reduce the number of calories absorbed through the colon wall
      • Decrease the level of the hunger hormones in the blood
      • Increase the level of the satiety or fullness hormone in the blood

Prebiotics aid digestion and promote weight loss and an insufficient intake can lead to weight gain and digestive issues. Not to mention, Lean Bars are clean calories that boost metabolism rather than slowing it down. Lean Bars are low in calories, contain 10 grams of prebiotic fiber, extremely low fat and low in sugar.

Rather than wreck your diet like most protein bars will do, Lean Bars can actually cause you to lose weight. I challenge you to check the Lean Bar label against any protein bar out there and I guarantee you can't find a better tasting or cleaner, leaner bar.

That's what makes Lean Bars different from all of the rest of the bars out there. They are the cleanest protein bar, providing 20 grams of high quality complete whey protein, boosting your metabolism rather than slowing it down the way others will. If you're not eating at least (1) Lean Bar every day you're sabotaging (slowing) your weight loss.

While Lean Bars may seem expensive, it's because they are All-Natural, gluten-free, and actually cost less than the fancy coffees we all drink that cause us to gain weight. Lean Bars cost less than the average snack. Here's how they measure up:

      • 20 grams of high biological protein
      • 10 grams of fiber from a prebiotic source
      • 2.5 grams of fat
      • 2.5 grams of sugar
      • 11 net carbs

Most commercially purchased protein bars are inexpensive because they are made with inexpensive ingredients. LynFit knows how important protein is when it comes to losing weight and boosting your metabolism. That's why we use the same high-grade, high biological value in the Lean Bar. This is critical when losing weight because it helps:

        • Kill cravings and satisfies your sweet tooth
        • Prevent blood sugar swings
        • Protects and preserves lean muscle tissue
        • Provides natural energy
        • Keeps you feeling fuller longer

    Lean Bars won't cause weight gain or bulk the way other protein bars will. The best time to enjoy a Lean Bar is:

          • As a meal replacement when you just need to chew (when you cannot make a LynFit Complete Protein Shake)
          • As a delicious snack with a cup of tea to avoid the "not-so-healthy" foods
          • After your workout to replenish protein and nourish your body

      The best part about Lean Bars (besides being the cleanest bar on the market) is that they are portable and need no refrigeration. You should always have one stashed in your purse, gym bag or desk. "A Lean Bar a day keeps the excess pounds away"! Don't leave home without one. Lean Bars stay fresh for months and (if needed) you can refrigerate them so they keep longer. But remember, if you do refrigerate them, they can get very hard so soften them first before eating by keeping it in your pocket close to your skin or any warm place. No more excuses that you didn't have the right food available. That's what Lean Bars are for!

      For a warm delicious treat, try warming up pieces of Lean Bar in the microwave for 15-30 seconds (depending on the watts) and enjoy metabolic boosting cookies (don't forget to remove the wrapper). My personal favorite is a Tahitian Vanilla Lean Bar with skinny hot chocolate (made with Complete Protein Shake mix) and 10 minutes of peace and quiet. For more delicious recipes stay tuned for my book release, The Metabolism Solution, due out by April 15th. But don't wait - preorder now on Amazon HERE, and please leave a review.

      Lose 1 pound a day with the Lean Protein Bar diet:

            • Eat between the hours of 8am and no later than 8pm
            • Drink 8-10 (8) ounce glasses of water daily
            • Be sure there are 3 hours between meals and snacks for proper digestion
            • For proper food choices and serving sizes, please see the list HERE

        The most important aspect of this weight loss plan is the sound nutrition that the Lean Bar and Complete Protein Shake deliver. If you need to start slow then that's where you should start. You can always add supplements in later and you'll still lose weight.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

        Repeat for 21 days to form this into a habit!

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

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

        Nix Joint Pain And Fatigue While Boosting Mood

        We all suffer with sore, painful joints and low energy which affects our mood at one time or another. Whether it is from stress, over-use, injury, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, or maybe you're healing from surgery or an illness. Whatever the cause, your body needs additional nutritional support to heal and repair, from the inside out. When our bodies are sick or under stress (weight loss and exercise both cause stress) our nutrient needs are increased and diet is almost never enough to bring results.

        Medications that stop us from feeling pain can also stop the healing process and slow the metabolism, which keeps us from losing weight. It's always best to take a holistic approach and that's where LynFit Recovery Agent comes in.

        LynFit Recovery Agent is a combination of 16 of the highest quality ingredients in exactly the amount your body needs to be effective. Researchers have discovered that when certain nutrients are combined in a concentrated form (like found in LynFit Recovery Agent) they are more powerful. It is a multivitamin and joint, pain protector wrapped into one. We all need to prevent injuries and joint pain from happening in the first place, so it's best to provide your body with what it needs to keep your joints supple and pliable, keeping pain away.

        LynFit Recovery Agent is a powerful, yet safe effective supplement that utilizes the body's multiple pathways and systems to promote aggressive healing and recovery to fight the inflammation that causes pain; arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis or any "itis" for that matter. It can relieve it without hurting your metabolism.

        The highly effective nutrients found in LynFit Recovery Agent not only help relieve your pain and suffering, they may also help reduce cravings for alcohol and sugar. Clean out your liver clogging medicine cabinet and start reaching for natural alternatives. Be sure to drink lots of fresh water and keep your diet high in healing foods like the LynFit Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar and salmon. Be sure to eat your 10 servings of vegetables every day but minimize night shade vegetables as they have been known to cause inflammation. Night shade vegetables are potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers, to name a few. More information on these vegetables can be found in my soon to be released book.

        Ten Reasons You Need LynFit Recovery Agent:
        • Boosts your body's immune function and response
        • Protects your body from free radical damage
        • Helps reduce and relieve pain and inflammation
        • Helps your body absorb calcium more efficiently and helps prevent bone loss
        • Helps keep your body flexible and pliable
        • Helps you feel better and gives you more energy faster
        • Helps put the brakes on aging
        • Helps the body handle stress
        • Improves circulation and increases blood flow
        • Helps boost mood - you'll feel better fast!

        I recommend taking LynFit Recovery Agent as soon as you wake up and again if needed immediately after your workout to replace nutrients. Make sure to read the product label for the correct dosage.

        Crave Less This Valentine's Day

        Valentine's Day; the one day of the year we want to feel good about ourselves, feel loved, and show love. Sadly, our overeating and struggles with cravings can make us feel just the opposite!

        If you're overweight chances are you struggle with cravings and almost never feel full. According to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, obese people are out of luck when it comes to suppressing the hunger hormone. Researchers discovered that the glucagon hormone, which is secreted by the body's pancreas and known to help control blood sugar levels and increase feelings of satiety after meals, had no effect on obese participants in the study. Researchers concluded that once a person becomes obese, glucagon cannot suppress the appetite or induce feelings of fullness.

        According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention, an obese individual is one whose body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher. The CDC also reports that the number of obese adults in the United States is nearly 40% of the population while the number of obese and overweight adults is nearly 70%!

        I know from my own personal experience that lacking energy and feeling depressed and bored were the top 2 reasons I overate and struggled with cravings. My #1 goal with anyone who needs to lose weight and struggles with cravings and fatigue is to get them to feel good first so they have the energy to make a lifestyle change that melts away fat from their waistline. When we feel better we crave less and eat better too.

        Here are my top recommendations for proven Feel Good Nutrition and Exercise techniques:

        Morning Energy and Mood Booster that melts fat

        Take (1) LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones, Green Tea and the super star ingredient Chocolate Bean Powder. These proven ingredients when combined are even more effective at boosting mood and lowering blood sugar to help reduce cravings while increasing energy, so you feel like exercising. Not only that, but you'll see the fat melt thanks to the Raspberry Ketones' fat burning properties.

        Lisa Trick: Take (1) LynFit Acclerator in the morning as soon as you wake up or 30 minutes before your workout. If you're really struggling take another at 12 noon. You can even open the capsule and empty the contents into your LynFit Complete Protein Shake in the morning!

        Boost Energy and Mood and Turbocharge your weight loss with the right exercise

        Add Metabolic Boosting exercise in place of your regular/usual workout first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Exercise can turbocharge your fat loss and weight loss if you're doing the right kind. I always suggest that people switch to metabolism boosting exercise to get results faster and in only 30 minutes, 3 times a week. If you want to see results within the first week and turbocharge your weight loss try my Metabolic Booster 1 and 2 or Power 30 workout, as well as my new Fat Blaster which can be done every other day.

        My favorite routine every week is:

        Monday: Metabolic Booster 1 workout
        Tuesday: Fat Blaster workout
        Wednesday: Metabolic Booster 2 workout
        Thursday: Lean Core workout
        Friday: Power 30 workout
        Saturday: Lean Core workout
        Sunday: Recovery Stretch workout

        I always add cardiovascular every day as you need both for maximum weight loss, especially if you struggle with a low thyroid. I ride my recumbent bike or walk on the treadmill every day for 30-45 minutes as I have a very slow metabolism and I'm not always perfect with my eating. I actually enjoy it now and look forward to my exercise time. I can do it at home and I hate missing a workout. When I do it just doesn't feel right.

        This winning combination/workout system has allowed me to keep the 40 pounds off that I lost over 20 years ago and keep up with the mid-life battle of the bulge and WIN! I have never gotten injured working out like this whereas other programs always caused me some sort of issue that stopped me from working out which dampened my mood. I love that I get double the results in 1/2 the time a gym workout gives me. Who doesn't get happy hearing that?

        Boost Mood and Energy with LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm

        Popping the LynFit Pure Omega-3 supplement at 3pm can keep you feeling full throughout the afternoon "craving hour", and according to researchers, people with high levels of Omega-3's have lower levels of depression. Fish oil also seems to boost the effects of anti-depressants and may help reduce the depressive symptoms of bipolar disorder.

        But not all Omega-3's are created equal so if you're not seeing or feeling the results you need LynFit's Pure Omega-3. It's the highest quality Omega-3 you can buy, not to mention that it contains the exact amount of DHA and EPA your body needs to see and feel results. Further, it is purified to remove any possible contaminants, unlike other commercially bought Omega-3 supplements. It doesn't contain any saturated fats or fats you don't need or want. You simply cannot find a better Omega-3!

        Note: Have some old Omega-3 laying around from another company? Check to make sure it has at least 500 each of DHA and EPA or it's not worth it. Also make sure that it's free of saturated fats. If not, throw it away. It's not worth taking and can actually cause more harm than good!

        Evening Energy and Mood Booster that support weigh loss

        Who doesn't love chocolate? Especially around Valentine's Day! We all want to eat chocolate and lose weight, right? Well now you can. LynFit's Chocolate Lean Bar (customers say that it tastes like a tootsie roll) makes the perfect snack when you're trying to lose weight and melt fat. Having a Lean Bar at night instead of your usual snack will also help you maintain your energy naturally without affecting your sleep. I refer to this as my Chocolate Diet, especially since I can be kind of a "chocoholic"!

        The Lean Bar (or Chocolate Complete Protein Shake) will help boost metabolism because of the high quality whey used, which helps lower stress levels while increasing your "focus". Snacking on a healthy Lean Bar or Complete Protein Shake also keeps you alert after eating it and helps you to get through the evening without the typical weight gain "snack attack" because they make you feel better and helps you to function when you're the most tired.

        LynFit uses de-fatted cocoa in its Chocolate Lean Bar and Complete Protein Shake which is not only better for weight loss because it doesn't contain excess fat like regular chocolate, but it's also high in flavanoids which have health benefits. A study found that the flavanoids found in high quality cocoa increase blood flow to the brain for 2-3 hours, helping to fight fatigue so you can get that work done that you brought home at the end of the day or to shuttle you kids to their games at night.

        Cleansing The Right Way!

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

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

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

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

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

        The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Difference:

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

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

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

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

        • Weight loss miracles really do happen when you sleep! Sleep is when your body regenerates and revitalizes itself. LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin will help your body and brain reboot so your body can burn fat even while you sleep. Drug-free, it is specifically designed for weight loss while allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new, metabolic boosting day!
