LynFit Lean Bars are the cleanest, purest, and best tasting protein bars. If you’re stuck in the weight loss rut and can’t lose weight, your protein bar may be to blame.
Most protein bars are loaded with fats and sugars and do not contain enough protein, or the right kind of protein, for weight loss. That’s what makes LynFit Lean Bars better than all of the rest. They are the only bar that’s made with pure, high-grade whey, prebiotic fiber, and taste so delicious you’ll stop craving those snack foods that cause weight gain.
LynFit Lean Bars are oven-baked and made from real foods and natural flavors and even healthy enough to replace a meal with due to their protein content.
- Low carb
- Less sugar
- Gluten and soy free
- 1-2 grams sugar
- 9-10 grams net low-glycemic carbs
- 9-10 grams prebiotic fiber
- 19g metabolic boosting whey protein
- Only 150 calories
- No preservatives
The Lean Bar's soft, chewy texture satisfies your need to chew while taming your sweet tooth. The fiber keeps you feeling fuller longer and improves gut health. It's a tantalizing sensation that your taste buds and body will love.
Fiber is vital when trying to lose weight because it keeps you feeling fuller longer while providing multiple health benefits. Dietary fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes—and that’s exactly where the problem lies. Most of us don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables to reach your goals. You need to limit whole grains when trying to lose weight, making it difficult to reach your daily quota of fiber.
Just some of the many added benefits of LynFit Lean Bars include:
- Boosts metabolism and promotes weight loss
- Kills cravings and keeps you feeling full
- Protects and helps prevent muscle loss
- Helps control blood sugar
- Great for diabetics
- Prevent candida while normalizing gut/intestinal bacteria
- Strengthens your immune system
- Helps tummy troubles
- Promotes regularity
- Naturally energizing
- Saves time and money
- Great for clean eating while on the fun and road

When It Comes To Weight Loss, Diet & Exercise Aren't Enough
If you’re struggling to lose weight (whether it's 5, 10, or even 50 pounds) and hoping to melt off the unsightly fat that's covering your abs and making your thighs jiggle and your arms wiggle, diet and exercise won’t be enough! And here's why.
If you've been more than 10 pounds overweight, it's important to know that you've changed your bodies biology, meaning:
- Your blood sugar levels have become unbalanced and most likely high
- Your blood fats (lipids) have become elevated i.e.: high cholesterol and triglycerides
- Your appetite is increasing and is most likely out of control
- You crave all of the wrong foods and to make matters worse you're always hungry and can never seem to eat enough
Sound familiar? Sadly, it gets worse.
Excess body fat has a secret life of its own. No one talks about it, but most of us deal with its harmful effects every day. Effects such as hormonal imbalances and elevated insulin and cortisol levels to name a few. These high hormonal levels act like a tornado and destroy everything in its path with reckless abandon. The most important being your health. It STOPS you from losing weight despite how many hours you spend working out or dieting.
If you don't think your excess weight and body fat are affecting your ability to lose weight, ask yourself this simple question and answer honestly:
Have you ever wanted to lose weight badly, yet your appetite and cravings were so intense you felt like you could jump out of your skin? And the next thing you knew you were heading to the store to get any food you could get your hands on to binge?
Yes, I used the word binge. You can thank your fat cells for causing that metabolic meltdown. The problem may seem complicated, but the solution is pretty simple. You must first address the underlying issues that are stopping you from losing weight.
Fat Facts: Here's what happens when you have excess weight and body fat
- It sends you false hunger signals and creates intense cravings for all the wrong foods.
- Excess belly fat (and overall fat) prevents weight loss. It's like trying to drive with the parking brake on.
- Your body is more likely to burn off muscle first vs. fat. Fat is incredibly stubborn and will fight every step of the way. This muscle loss is the cause of a slowing metabolism.
- Depletes your energy and affects your mood, so the net result is you fall off your weight loss plan, and that is exactly what your fat cells want you to do. The fat monster wants you to keep feeding it carbs, sugars and fattening fats all day.
The great news is that ALL fat can be burned off, no matter how old you are or how stubborn your metabolism may be. Yes, even if you've been overweight most of your life. You just have to create the right conditions for fat loss.
The best approach is natural, holistic vs. medications that can harm health and have lasting side effects. Most of the time, the solutions need to become your new way of life vs. quick fix thinking. This is where the strategic use of specific natural supplements should be used by anyone who wants to improve health and is trying to lose weight and keep it off.
My LynFit Essential Fat Loss Stack addresses these underlying issues using safe, all- natural botanical extracts for a holistic approach. This stack attacks fat loss and addresses your weight loss problems from every possible angle. That's the very reason it's so effective.
Stacking your thermogenic and fat loss supplements does more than burning fat, it prevents the hunger and cravings from happening in the first place (the hunger monster doesn't stand a chance) while improving your health, so you don't just look better, you feel better the same day you start.
Prevention is the cure! Don't wait until you're elbow deep in junk food. Take a few natural precautions to keep that fat loss monster from showing up in the first place.
THE LYNFIT ESSENTIAL FAT LOSS STACK
It utilizes scientifically formulated dosages of the cleanest, purest, highest quality botanical nutrients and amino acids; conveniently stacked together into one easy-to-use system, providing fast results while saving you time and money. From priming your body for fat loss to forcing your body to burn off the fat that’s released into your system, this system attacks weight and fat loss from every angle, so you don’t just lose weight—you keep it off for good.
Now you don't have to search for a weight loss and fat burning product that meets your needs—LynFit did it for you!
Let's take a closer look at both of these supplements and learn how their individual pure, natural qualities work together to naturally increase your metabolism, kill hunger and cravings, and balance blood sugar levels, prompting your body to burn off stored fat for energy. In essence, your body becomes a fat burning furnace while at the same time preventing new fat cell formation.
LYNFIT ACCELERATOR ADVANCED
LynFit's Accelerator Advanced is a safe, all-natural, yet highly effective fat burning metabolic enhancer that makes losing weight faster and easier by helping to control your appetite, especially during cravings for sugars and carbohydrate-containing foods.
Accelerator Advanced takes the guesswork out of which formula you should be using since we combined them all into one. It is the perfect combination of LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator. You can see and feel the difference the same day you begin taking it.
Accelerator Advanced contains less caffeine than a cup of tea, so you will not feel jittery and "crash" the way you do with other weight loss supplements and has been specially formulated to:
- Help maximize weight loss and fat burning
- Help promote thyroid health
- Help reduce hunger and kill cravings
- Help reduce carbohydrate absorption
- Help eliminate excess water
- Help reduce stress-related belly fat
- Help improve mood and focus
- Help increase energy (fights midday fatigue)
Clinical studies have shown that the specific blend of key ingredients in the quality and dosage, found only in LynFit Accelerator Advanced, speeds up weight loss by reducing the absorption of dietary fats and blood sugar, spiking carbohydrates while accelerating, promoting, and encouraging the body's natural ability to burn fat.
LynFit Accelerator Advanced contains a unique blend of ingredients, inspired by nature and perfected by LynFit Nutrition.
- Raspberry ketones
- Green tea extract
- Banaba leaf
- White kidney bean extract
- Guggul extracts
- Cocoa bean extract
- Vitamins B6 and B12
- Pantothenic acid
- UVA Ursi Leaf extract
- Dandelion root extract
- Hydrangea root extract
- Celery seed
- Black tea extract
- Suma root extract
- Alpha lipoic acid
The scientifically blended formula naturally tricks your body into acting like a "thin person," allowing you to burn more calories and melt fat while reducing bloating and blood sugar.
Don't let the fancy names of the ingredients fool you. Combined, they provide you with a stimulant-free, yet highly effective fat burner that's safe enough to use on a daily basis.
Bitter orange and Ephedra are common stimulants found in most fat burners (Ephedra is illegal in most places). Stimulants typically increase alertness and awareness (think Red Bull® energy drinks) but wear out the adrenal glands, leaving you feeling worse than you did before you took it. Some stimulants produce a sense of euphoria (happiness), in particular, the stimulants which exert influence on the central nervous system. However, many people have great sensitivities to stimulants (i.e. They get the jitters, red face, agitated, etc.), and for that reason, we removed the Bitter Orange from the Accelerator Advanced. Even my 73-year-old mom takes it daily, and she's extra-sensitive to stimulants :)
LYNFIT CUTTING EDGE
LynFit Cutting Edge is an all-natural stimulant-free blend of scientifically tested, highly effective researched fat burning nutrients and ingredients that have been specially combined using precise dosages.
This combination of high quality, pure ingredients now includes L-Carnitine Tartrate, among others, that prompt the body to burn fat and carbohydrates more efficiently. High quality, pure ingredients such as:
- L-Carnitine Tartrate
- CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
- Parsley Leaf, Uva Ursi, Hydrangea Root
The all-natural combination of fat burning ingredients helps your body convert fat into usable energy and reduce fat cells, preventing new fat cells from forming while improving your overall health by helping to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides.
LynFit’s formula is further enhanced with a high potency dosage of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5). Once Pantothenic Acid is converted in the body into co-enzyme A, it works directly with L-Carnitine to convert food into energy.
This incredible supplement reduces bloating and acts as a detoxifier. High in B-complex vitamins, the Cutting Edge also naturally elevates your mood. Using it, you will notice that you not only feel better, but you also look slimmer and more toned, with or without exercise.
Additionally, LynFit Cutting Edge:
- Helps control hunger
- Helps elevate metabolism
- Promotes recovery from exercise or overuse of muscles
- Helps support energy and endurance
- Is Ephedra and stimulant-free
- Is guaranteed free of wheat, gluten, milk or milk derivatives, lactose, soy, sugar, preservatives, artificial color, and flavor
In short, LynFit Cutting Edge helps people with stubborn metabolisms lose weight and shed excess body fat fast!
WHY DO YOU NEED TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF?
Have you ever counted how many products do you use to get dressed in the morning? One to control perspiration, another to keep your hair intact, and if you’re like me, you use a dozen others to get the job done. Fat loss is no different. We need tools to see results.
This combination of LynFit Accelerator Advanced and LynFit Cutting Edge replaces the need for a cabinet full of mismatched ineffective supplements, saving you time and money while helping you to stay consistent.
SUGGESTED ESSENTIAL FAT LOSS STACK USAGE
As a dietary supplement, start off taking one (1) Accelerator Advanced and one (1) Cutting Edge capsule in the morning, and another one (1) of each again at lunch.
One (1) Cutting Edge should also be taken again at 2-3 p.m. to encourage all day fat burning, or you may take two (2) Cutting Edge at lunch to remain consistent.
Always take your supplements with a full glass of water.
Do not take within 4–5 hours of bedtime.
Consistency and frequency matter! The best results come when you take your daily supplement doses about 3-4 hours apart. Frequent dosing throughout the day is recommended to achieve a steady state of nutrients in your plasma.
Anyone who struggles with cravings, hunger, and weight loss should take the Essential Fat Loss Stack. If you struggle with blood sugar issues, pre-diabetic and/or diabetic, hyperthyroid, menopausal, post pregnancy, and men who have been more than ten pounds overweight for most of their adult life will greatly benefit from the Essential Fat Loss Stack.

Outsmart Your Metabolism To Burn Fat Faster!
Whether you’re trying to burn off stubborn body fat or shed a few pounds, you’ll need to know the fat loss facts first before you can successfully melt fat and lose weight.
More than 100 million people in the U.S. have a metabolic issue known as Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, or Insulin Resistance that’s STOPPING them from losing weight.
Despite there being a gym on every corner and a diet/fad for every hour of the day, Americans are becoming more overweight and obese by the day. Even the so-called “skinny” people are now sporting excess belly fat. Until you understand how your metabolism works, you might never lose weight.
What does belly fat have to do with not being able to lose weight?
If you're serious about losing weight, attacking fat loss needs to be at the top of your priority list. Having excess fat on or around your belly makes losing weight and burning off fat even harder and can even stop weight loss, despite aggressive efforts.
Belly fat specifically throws your hormones out of balance, which acts as a parking brake for weight loss. In order to lose weight easier, you’ve got to first remove the parking brake. That’s the secret to outsmarting your metabolism; address the underlying issues first. While it may be easy to do, you do have to be consistent because fat is stubborn and practically fights back.
IF YOU DO THESE THREE SIMPLE THINGS, YOU'LL BURN OFF THAT STUBBORN STORED BODY FAT AND LOSE WEIGHT FASTER
You can lose 10, 20, 30 pounds of fat, lose inches, and keep it off forever if you teach your body how to live off its own fat reserves; aka: burn fat.
Eat clean, specifically for fat loss. Download the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan HERE and choose foods from that list only! If you don't see it on the list, it's not good for fat loss and certainly won't help you lose weight.
Reset and reprogram your metabolism, so you burn more calories all day long, even while you sleep.
The problem with every diet (including low carb/paleo) is as soon as you decrease your calories, your metabolism slows down, despite the fact that we need to reduce them to lose weight.
There are lots of things you can do to prevent this from happening, but the simple solution is to turn up the heat in your metabolism with the strategic use of specific supplements such as LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge (or the new combined supplement, LynFit Accelerator Advanced). These supplements are thermogenic, which means they heat up your metabolism, making it easier for your body to burn off that stubborn body fat that's not only keeping you from fitting into your favorite jeans but also makes it harder to lose weight.
In addition to taking those supplements and cleaning up your diet, you should also be:
- Eating between certain hours only, to allow your body a 12-hour fast each night to lower blood sugar levels. I suggest 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. So no eating, zero, nothing, after 7 p.m.
- Exercising on an empty stomach in the morning
- Cutting carbs at night and stick to leafy greens vs. the higher carb vegetables like string beans and carrots (see the food list in the Meal Plan for more)
Doesn’t exercise make you burn fat? Nope! Even when you exercise hard, it doesn’t mean that the fat that’s circulating will be burned off. Most often, it's re-stored unless you have the right nutrients present. That’s why it’s critical that you Do have what your body needs to make this happen.
When it comes to losing weight and melting fat off those stubborn hard to reach places, sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough. That's where LynFit comes in. Think of fat loss supplements as tools that make it faster and easier, the same way power tools lighten your workload.
Our weight and body fat percentages have increased because our bodies (even the fittest ones) have become sensitive to the foods we eat. To make matters worse, we eat way too much, and we eat too often, so our bodies don’t have time to use all the fuel we provide. Body fat is a telltale sign you’ve been overeating. This is a bigger problem than most people realize and it’s also why we can’t lose weight despite our endless hours in the gym.
Body fat is a telltale sign you’ve been overeating. This is a bigger problem than most people realize and it’s also why we can’t lose weight, despite our endless hours in the gym.
When you're overweight and have belly fat, your body overreacts to carbohydrates, and it releases too much insulin, the fat-storing hormone. The elevated insulin opens the doors to your fat cells both inside (around your organs) and outside your body.
The good news? This is where the LynFit Essential Fat Loss Stack comes into play.
The Essential Fat Loss Stack attacks fat from every angle, and that's what it takes to burn off fat and boost metabolism.
First thing in the morning, as soon as you get up take:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
If you work out, and you're trying to burn fat, you'll want to work out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach when your glycerin levels are low. This allows you to burn fat faster, and if you add the Essential Fat Loss Stack, you can triple your results.
Black coffee is okay to have, but nothing else.
If you don't work out, take the LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge anyway. it will mimic the blood sugar, glycerin-lowering benefits, much like exercise.
After your workout, or 2-3 hours after your first dose, or if you don't exercise, take:
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
This will guarantee that fat is being burned off vs. being restored again.
At lunch time, when your metabolism begins to decline, which is exactly what you don't want, so you need to turn up the heat again by taking:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator (if taking two Accelerators is too much for your body, open the capsule and sprinkle ½ of its contents vs. not taking it at all)
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
Supplements are more important than you might think and everyone is different when it comes to dosage. It's important to remember that you can start slow and add as you go, and as needed.
But food is the reason we get fat to begin with, so swap out your fat-storing food for metabolic boosting thermogenic food (see the food list in the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan). Thermogenic means heat, so these foods will heat up and rev up your metabolism, making it easier to melt off stubborn body fat.
Remove all milk and non-dairy creamers. And yes, this includes coconut oils and milk.
Replace with black coffee and add Melt Fat Milk.
Try this metabolic boosting, fat blasting "Coffee a-la Protein" drink. You'll love it, and it helps replace the fattening creamers and milk.
- (1-2 scoops) LynFit Protein Powder of choice
- (1 cup) Coffee
Mix the protein powder according to the label directions using warm water for hot coffee or cold water if you're having iced coffee. Add the Melt Fat Milk and enjoy!
This is the most delicious way to enjoy your coffee and have a metabolic boosting shake.
If you're not a coffee fan, try calorie-free chai teas instead.

The Best Way to Lose Weight for That Big Event
Prince William and Kate Middleton did it; cleansed in order to slim down before their wedding. Maybe you've got a big event coming up, like a wedding (yours or one you're attending), a class reunion, a vacation on the beach, or you just feel the need to jump-start your weight loss, and you need to drop some weight and shape up. Then this is specifically for you.
I hear it regularly, “I need to lose some weight for …" And then it is followed by a big sigh before it is followed with, “how can I get there quick?”
Well, one thing is certain, “quick” won’t happen if you have let yourself get too far away from the desired look you are trying to achieve. However, if you cleanse the right way, you can make a huge difference in how your clothes fit.
I suggest following the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse for as long as you can to lose weight, and more importantly, keep it off. Follow it for seven days, and you can Lose 7 pounds in 7 days, 10 pounds in 10 days, 30 in 30....... You get the picture :)
What About Exercising While Cleansing?
Remember that weight loss is 90 percent diet and 10 percent sweat equity, so focus on eating clean, getting enough sleep and rest, and be mindful not to overdo exercise or push too hard. Overzealous exercise can stop weight loss due to the stress it places on the body, which causes cortisol levels that block fat from being burned off - specifically stubborn belly fat. Easy does it, and the rule of thumb is that you should be able to have a conversation while exercising. If you can't, you're pushing too hard.
Keep in mind that walking should be a daily habit, just like brushing your teeth. Be sure to get in your 10,000 steps daily to help keep you fit and reduce stress.
For a total transformation, follow this exercise plan (all of these may be downloaded by clicking on the name):
- Metabolic Booster 1 Workout
- Fat Blaster Workout
- Power 30 Workout
- Recovery Stretch or Lean Core Workout
- Metabolic Booster 2 Workout
- Lean Core Workout
- Rest (you still need to get in your 10,000 steps)
More than anything else, get off the couch!
Remember too that transformation begins in your mind first. So be sure to spend some time cleansing and detoxing your mind too. Believe. Begin. Become.
Losing 10 percent of your body weight can deliver huge health benefits like reduced blood pressure and cholesterol, decreased blood sugar levels, and a boost in energy and mood. You'll not only look better; you'll feel better too. Brides, a 10-pound weight loss and you'll drop a dress/clothing size too!

One Or More Months Before The Big Event
Here are a few things you'll need to know to be well on your way to being slim, hard, and sexy for your future husband or wife, your old school mates, or that person you are trying to meet in paradise. Better yet, do it for you!
Eliminate any liquid calories like soda or fancy coffee drinks and replace them with water recipes. It’s absolutely the easiest way to shed pounds and inches.
Research shows that beverage calories tend not to be filling, and you may not think of drinks as food, but in 30 days time just one 20 oz. glass of cola, sweet tea or juice adds up to the equivalent of about 2,000 jelly beans worth of sugar.
Stick with water (take a look at these delicious, hydrating water recipes) and unsweetened hot or cold green or black tea. And if you must have your morning cup of Joe, doctor it up with melt fat out milk and add spices like cinnamon and nutmeg; they help add flavor so you won’t miss the sugar and they're both antioxidant rich (think glowing skin).
At dinner, make 50 percent of the bulk of your meals leafy green veggies (about 2 cups, the size of 2 baseballs), 3 oz. of white fish, preferably white fish. Include a small amount (1 tsp.) of a healthy plant-based fat, such as sautéing the veggies in 1 tsp. of sesame oil or extra virgin olive oil.
This nutritional balance helps decrease blood sugar levels, which sets up the body to burn fat and helps to curbs calories and hunger. It also helps to energize as you shrink your fat cells.
Make sure to measure your food. You may think your eyeballs are your biggest asset but don't use them to visualize your portions, get a food scale.
The Week Before The Big Event
Get rid of the big bloaters/triggers: Alcohol, chewing gum, carbonated drinks, and artificial sweeteners. Drinking through a straw, eating too fast, skipping meals, and over-blending your protein shakes (adding air) can also cause bloating. All of these make you swallow or retain more air in your GI tract, which can swell like a balloon, giving you a pooch which can show in your dress or clothes.
On The Big Day
You don’t want to pass out on your way down the aisle or at your big event, and you want to feel really good, so be sure to pack a few extra LynFit Lean Bars; and if possible, a pre-blended protein shake to energize you and keep your blood sugar levels steady.
If you're nervous, nibble on some celery, or better yet, say a prayer and allow God's presence to enter and steady those nerves.
Make sure to eat before you take that first sip of champagne or alcohol, and have some lean protein such as shrimp or chicken to buffer your blood sugar. Take an additional LynFit Accelerator Advanced; it contains ingredients that block 75 percent of the absorption of carbohydrates and fat, without harmful side effects.
Without food in your belly, alcohol gets absorbed almost immediately, so your blood alcohol rises quickly.
Also, be sure to drink a glass of water between each alcoholic beverage, so you stay hydrated. I’ve heard of many brides passing out before consummating their marriage because of too many champagne toasts without enough food and fluid. Don’t let this happen to you!
You're now ready for your big event. If it's your wedding, I pray God's blessings upon it. If it's another type of big event, enjoy it to the fullest.
Whatever the occasion, I'd love to celebrate your journey with you by way of photos. Just send them along to Support@LynFit.com. Here are two examples of brides who, like you, needed a little extra "help" for their big day. And they found it through the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse.
This is Joy. She lost 30 pounds in 30 days, with exercise.
This is Molly. I like to call her "Last-Minute Molly" because she did just that - waited to the absolute last minute! She lost about 15 pounds in two weeks, with not exercise. Due to the last minute nature, we focused entirely on food.
Who knows, your success story may very well be the one that inspires someone else!

Vitamin D Helps Burn Fat & Block New Fat Cell Formation
Vitamin D is synthesized in the body in a reaction involving sunlight and by being consumed in the diet (eating fatty fish); and of course, taking supplements, which is almost essential after age 30.
Several recent studies have linked low Vitamin D levels to poor bone health, muscle weakness, deficiencies in reproductive hormones (testosterone and estrogen), low aerobic capacity, and increased body mass index.
A Korean study showed that Vitamin D triggered a fat loss in fat cells that were exposed to Vitamin D. Vitamin D also affected genes that influence fat cell formation, fat breakdown, and fat use as energy. Recent research has shown that 4,000 IU of Vitamin D-3 is most effective for weight loss and fat loss as well as helping to prevent inflammation and promoting normal muscle function. (Nutrition, 32:702-708,2016)
IMPROVES OVERALL HEALTH
Want to cut your chances of getting a cold or flu or reduce your symptoms faster? Take LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost. In the largest and most definitive evaluation to date, taking a regular supplement of Vitamin D reduced the risk of an upper respiratory infection substantially.
The study combined the data from 25 clinical trials including over 10,000 study subjects from countries all over the world. For study subjects who had low levels of Vitamin D to start, the risk of developing a respiratory infection was reduced by half. Those with higher baseline blood levels benefited too, reducing their risk by about 10 percent. The researchers noted that the risk reduction for getting an acute respiratory infection afforded by taking Vitamin D was the overall equivalent to the protective effect of a flu vaccine against a flu-like illness!
Keep in mind that it is nearly impossible in colder months to achieve normal blood levels of Vitamin D without taking a supplement.
When it comes to boosting fat loss and improving health, my advice is to take 2000 IU's of LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost daily (1 Vitamin D3 Boost in the morning and another again before bed). If you think you'll forget, take both pills at the same time.
LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost is the highest quality Vitamin D3 you can buy and has exactly the amount your body needs. Most people say they can feel the difference in how they feel after taking it for two days. Try it and see for yourself!
Cleanse Away Those Unwanted Pounds!
The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse has a clear-cut mission: Increase your metabolism, promote fat loss, and cleanse away that awful bloated, stuffed feeling. The core foundation of this simple, easy-to-follow plan is to encourage a healthier, more balanced, sustainable, leaner and cleaner lifestyle.
The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse is specifically designed to address the ten underlying causes of weight gain. Addressing these weight-gain factors upfront is the secret to your health and weight issues (including obesity), and they are almost always overlooked and not addressed by other juice cleanses and fasts.
#1: DETOXIFIES CLOGGED, TOXIC LIVERS
Livers that are clogged lack the nutrients needed to protect your health. When livers are clogged, they become loaded with toxins and cannot efficiently burn fat which can also stop you from losing weight.
#2: REDUCES THE STRESS HORMONES THAT ARE CAUSING YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT
Constant stress makes your adrenal glands over-produce cortisol which leads to the storing of belly fat and weight gain, preventing weight loss.
#3: REDUCES BLOAT AND WATER RETENTION
Not keeping your body hydrated, out of whack hormones, and food sensitivities (gluten and dairy among others) can trap water weight in your body and tissues, making you feel awful and mask weight loss.
#4: PROVIDES YOUR BODY WITH THE RIGHT KIND OF FATS TO HELP YOU BURN UNWANTED FAT
Most of us eat too many of the wrong kind of fats (coconut oils, avocado, Omega 6) and not enough of the right kind of essential fats like Omega 3. To make matters worse, we supplement with non-purified Omega 3 fats. You know the ones; the over-the-counter, cheaper brands that contain toxins that clog your liver and make you feel awful, yet fail to provide your body with the Omega 3 you need in the amounts needed for optimal health and promote fat loss.
Eating the wrong kind of fat is not only bad for you, making you unhealthy, it also prevents weight loss and blocks the body from burning off stored fat.
Did you know: 80% of Americans are deficient in the essential fats responsible for melting belly fat, brain health, reducing hunger and cravings, reducing and balancing blood sugar levels, and reducing inflammation (all "itis" conditions are caused by inflammation)?
#5: REDUCES AND BALANCES INSULIN LEVELS
It's not only the refined carbs like bread, wraps, rice, and pasta, but also some of "health" foods that contain harmful insulin spiking ingredients, including gluten (yes, it's everywhere). Juicing or eating excessive fruits, or eating the wrong kind of fruits that spike insulin levels, will stop your body from burning off stored fat.
#6: IMPROVES GUT AND INTESTINAL FLORA AND RESTORES THE MISSING GUT MICROBES
Most cleanses simply strip your body and throw gut flora out of balance. The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse does clear out the toxins and bad stuff but replaces and restores the good guys that you want to hang around in your gut for optimal health and faster easier weight loss.
Countless studies agree that your health and weight loss are linked to your gut microbes. Gut microbes (intestinal flora) play a significant role in your metabolism and fat-burning. Your bacterial eco-system helps to control your weight, cravings, and hunger. This cleanse plan works better than any other cleanse or diet for this very reason. It not only cleanses and detoxes but more importantly, it also improves and restores gut health thanks to the LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse and Restore, leaving your body better than it was before. You’ll feel better, look better, and your clothes will be loose again.
#7: IMPROVES DIGESTION
Poor digestion affects every aspect of your health, especially weight loss. A sluggish metabolism is often a sign of sluggish impaired digestion, which is why frequent cleansing is so important for all of us.
This cleanse doesn’t destroy digestion the way other cleanses can; it improves it by improving the quality of bile that’s produced. Poor quality bile keeps your body from digesting fats which impact weight gain because what’s not digested is stored as fat and clogs up your system.
Impaired digestion also depletes your body of the benefits you receive from the good fats like the LynFit Pure Omega 3 delivers. Without the benefits of good fats, your memory can suffer. In fact, it affects everything; you’ll notice low energy, memory loss, aches, pains, lackluster hair, skin, and nails. These are all signs that your digestive system needs a boost, and that’s exactly what you'll get when you do this cleanse!
#8: BOOSTS SLUGGISH THYROID FUNCTION
Anyone older than 35 (for some overweight individuals, this happens at a much younger age) struggles with low thyroid function, which decreases your metabolism (it's why you start gaining weight for no reason). Even worse, it can cause your body to overproduce insulin, which is why anyone with hypothyroidism, post and pre-menopausal women, and even men after a certain age struggle to lose weight and melt off that stubborn body and belly fat (love handles).
Sadly, it gets worse. Elevated insulin also causes intense cravings for carbs and the wrong kind of food that deter your weight loss. It's a vicious cycle until you stop and reboot your system.
You're gonna love LynFit Thyro-Boost! It helps all of this because it's full of natural, adaptogenic herbs that help where needed. And, it won't hurt you if it's not needed, so you can take it safely even if you're on medications.
#9: DEBUGS YOUR SYSTEM
The same way your computer act negatively when they get bugs and viruses, your metabolism and body are the same. That’s why it's critical to debug your system frequently. Researchers believe that bugs and parasitic developments in our bodies may be partly responsible for the obesity epidemic and insulin resistance; including Type 2 Diabetes.
The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse specifically address this issue by decreasing the bad bugs and increasing the good ones that help keep the bad guys away.
#10: BOOSTS MAGNESIUM AND OTHER IMPORTANT NUTRIENT LEVELS
Nutrition plays a huge role in weight loss and vibrant health. This metabolic boosting cleanse takes that very seriously; that’s why it's full of magnesium, the superstar nutrient that's responsible for turning food into fuel, hence the reason it keeps your system regular. Without enough of the right nutrients, you lack a critical component that flips the fat burning switch on and operating efficiently.
So, in simple terms, what really makes the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse different than every other cleanse?
The answer to that is as simple as it gets! Lets's review:
You can continue to eat and live in the real world while not slowing down your metabolism.
It nourishes and restores your body's gut flora vs. destroying it, so it nourishes your body from the inside out leaving you feeling better than before without harming you in the process. You also won't need to worry about being close to the bathroom like you do with other cleanses :)
This Cleanse nourishes and restores instead of being harsh and stripping nutrients away, depleting your body of essential nutrients as other cleanses may do.
With the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse, you get to eat a healthy meal each day and eat real food vs. processed yucky powdered stuff that tastes terrible and lacks nutrition.
It's a quick-start, modified liquid fast and detox where you will see significant results within 48 hours. This sets the stage for fat loss with the strategic use of specific metabolic boosting, natural supplements that cleanse, lower blood sugar, and boost thyroid function that prevents the metabolic shutdown that can occur when calories are lowered.
The best part? Enjoy delicious, metabolic boosting, cortisol lowering smoothies, slimming soups, and salads, made with thermogenic spices and good-for-you fats.
This is a cleanse you can live on that promotes fat-burning and restores your system.

So declare out loud to the universe that you're willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy and get ready for the new, leaner you.
At LynFit, we believe the secret to your success is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable ones and then starting on the first one. So we put together a list for you to follow to help get you started.
STEPS THAT GUARANTEE YOUR WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS
- Read through the plan and make notes. Make a note of what you think will be difficult for you and a solution to it, as well as what you think will be easy for you.
- Write down your goal and post it all over your house to remind yourself why you started in the first place
- Weigh yourself and take a before photo (say good-bye to the struggle)
- Throw all of the junk "non-food” out of your house. You can’t eat it if it’s not there :)
- Make a list and go shop for what you need. No time to shop? Have it delivered right to your door.
- Eat foods from the approved food list only
- Surround yourself with like-minded, positive people who share your dreams and desires. Sometimes family can be the worst when it comes to transforming your bad habits. In fact, often they are your partner in crime, and you’ll need to remind them that you love them more than ever, but you need to take care of yourself. Invite them to join you, but don't force them. Ask them politely not to bring trigger foods into the house, and provide them with ways they can help you stay on track. A little communication goes a long way here.
- Try to eat between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m., making certain there is at least three hours in-between meals to help lower blood sugar levels and promote cleansing. Your body can't cleanse if you're always eating.
- Drink at least ten glasses of water each day. Here's an easy-to-follow plan: One glass when you wake up, one per hour, and one before bed.
- Eat your veggies and only one fruit daily. Your daily goal is five cups of veggies and one ½ cup serving of fruit. Here's your plan: Add ½ cup of fruit to your morning smoothie, two cups of veggies with your lunch shake, two more at dinner, and add one serving as a snack, and you did it. You’ll feel fuller longer, and you'll be cleansed and healthy. (See the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and Detox Plan for simple, delicious recipes)
- Be sure to have your two shakes daily. This is how you'll melt off the pounds and nourish your body, including your hair skin and nails.
- Sleep leaner. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep nightly to help reduce cortisol levels and allow your body time to recharge. If sleep is an issue, take a 20-minute nap during the day with your feet up. Rest quietly if you can't sleep.
- Take your supplements regularly. Supplementing is the best way to ensure your success, so make sure to take your supplements as directed in the Plan, even if you think you don’t need them. Each one serves a specific purpose, and the most important is keeping you healthy. Set a timer on your cell phone and carry them with you wherever you go so you don’t miss a dose It's better to take your supplement late than not at all. Drop all other supplements during the cleanse for best results. Many supplements leave residue in your system that needs cleansing.
- Emotional cravings making it tough? Have a cup of hot tea or broth, or call a friend. In the program, we say, “Change a thought, move a muscle.” Distract yourself by taking a walk or stretching. Whatever you do, get out of the kitchen. Helpful tip: Brushing your teeth always helps.
- When in doubt don’t! Instead, have another Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar. Think, “Eat clean to be lean” vs. not eating and end up binging.
- Embrace hunger, it’s a good sign. Don’t be afraid of it; it means your cleanse is working and your body is about to burn off stored fat. Once your body figures out that it’s the stored fat you want it to use, it will begin burning fat off, and the hunger will dissipate.
Remember, if it doesn’t challenge you it can't change you, and it will never get easier. But you will get better at doing what it takes!
What about exercise? Weight loss is 90 percent diet and only 25 percent sweat equity, so during the cleanse it's best to focus on the cleanse and minimize exercise. Some exercise programs can increase hunger and cravings and jack up cortisol levels, which is counter-productive.
While cleansing, it's best to focus on the healthiest forms of exercise that won't make you hungrier or increase stress hormones. Enjoy it; it won't be long before you're exercising again and seeing results, thanks to this cleanse.
Walk 10,000 steps every day. Walking after your last meal and before your first shake is a great way to help your body detox and offset the symptoms you may experience while your body is detoxifying.
Stretch every day. Stretching keeps your body working order and helps your body eliminate waste. Try the LynFit Recovery Stretch; it’s the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day or start your day off right.
Ten minutes of light weight lifting or the LynFit Lean Core workout is okay; just go easy, so you don’t interfere with the cleansing process or place larger nutritional demands on your body. This is about rebooting and healing.
How long should I cleanse? We suggest two weeks, but this plan is so efficient you can do 1-2-3 weeks or as many as you choose. The more weight you have to lose, the more you may need to cleanse.
Each Cleansing Kit lasts a minimum of two weeks, and most of the supplements last for 30 days, but many people prefer to have more than two shakes daily or make the desserts in the Complete Protein Recipe Guide, so you might want to pick up an additional Complete Protein Shake. It never hurts to have extra on hand for those "what should I eat moments."
AFTER THE CLEANSE
If you lost all the weight you wanted and feel thoroughly cleansed, your body is now ready to burn fat. Progress to the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. If you feel you need to do another two weeks, that's fine as well. This cleanse is so good for you that you can use it as a way of life. A lot of clients cleanse 4-5 days a week and allow themselves to have an "off" meal or two, depending on their metabolisms.
So, what are you waiting on? Go ahead; you can do it. Today you just became stronger than your excuses.
BELIEVE. BEGIN. BECOME.
Jump-Start Your Weight Loss With A Metabolic Boosting Cleanse
If you're thinking about starting your weight loss with a juice cleanse, think again. While juicing may be the most popular way to jump-start weight loss, it's not the best way; especially when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. What you don't know about juicing could STOP you from losing weight and may actually be harmful to your health.
You never hear of anyone "living" a cleansing lifestyle, yet we all know intuitively that we need to eat healthier. That's what makes juicing so attractive - it's considered a quick fix. We've all been there; sick and tired of being sick and tired and know we need to change our situation, so we try to do the right thing and jump into a juice cleanse because every good diet starts with a cleanse - right?
Within the first few days, our energy disappears, and our body starts to fight against us. We feel cranky and weak, and before you know it, the cravings begin, and we have to run to the bathroom every few minutes; praying we make it in time.
Most cleanses, especially those that include juicing, aren't good for your body, don't help you lose weight long-term, and don't burn fat off your body. And, if you can't burn fat, you'll look the same, even if you have lost some weight.
So, is juicing good for you at all? The real problem with juice cleansing is that it deprives your body of healthy fats and other essential nutrients your body requires to operate. This makes you feel terrible and can also cause you to lose that hard-earned muscle, which in turn slows down your metabolism, making it even harder to lose weight or maintain what you have lost.
Why? It's due to the decrease in calories, which causes your thyroid to slow down, making it impossible to burn fat. This will amplify your symptoms of fatigue and weakness, and can even cause permanent hair loss. Those seemingly innocent cleanses can also wreck havoc on your pocketbook. :)
I can hear you asking now, "But how; juicing has so many healthy ingredients?"
Let's be honest; if you like the juice you're drinking, the odds are it's because it's full of sugar. Even though the sugar might be from fresh fruit, it's still sugar, and your cells don't know the difference. And, when it comes to your veggies, it's always better to chew your food. Chewing is more satisfying to the senses.
You may think you're getting a few vitamins and minerals, but the blood sugar rise isn't worth it. Besides, you're not getting as many vitamins and minerals as you think. The lack of essential fats prevents nutrients from being absorbed.
While you might get ½ of your daily requirement of Vitamin A when juicing, most people forget that Vitamin A is fat soluble; meaning it needs to be consumed with a fat if you want your body to absorb it efficiently. One-third of these liquid sugar calories are stored as fat.
This is a nightmare for diabetics, pre-diabetics, and people who struggle with Gout. It increases Gout due to the toxic acids like uric acids that are formed when our liver metabolizes fructose.
Juicing has also been known to elevate triglycerides, due to the insulin spikes, and raise blood pressure.
Bottom line: Juicing is never a good idea for weight loss and is better used for weight gain.
In my Sports Nutrition line of work, raising blood sugar is the oldest trick in the book for getting underweight people to gain weight. Give them a glass of juice, and they will eat more later. (*Note for wine drinkers: Alcohol works the same way.)
There is a smarter way to cleanse that boosts metabolism, making it easier for you to lose weight, and this cleanse melts fat!
To lose weight, you need the following nutrients:
Lean Protein to boost metabolism by 25 percent and preserve lean muscle tissue, which is responsible for keeping your metabolism revved and your moods and hormones balanced. It will also help to keep you feeling fuller longer while feeding your hair skin and nails. It's the secret to looking good and feeling great.
Essential "good for fat loss" fats like Omega 3 to help transport nutrients like Vitamins A, D, and K; among many others like the B lean vitamins that are critically important for metabolic health.
These "good for you" fats help transport the nutrients into the cells where they are utilized. These nutrients do more than boost weight loss. They are responsible for nervous system and bone health, as well as hormone production, cell membrane formation, regulation of heart rate and blood pressure; all while providing energy.
A nourished body is a healthy body, and a healthy body loses weight easier, especially if you're metabolically-challenged (have a hard time losing weight).
There is a better solution that helps jump-start weight loss faster and promotes the burning of fat, which is really what you want. It's also more affordable and delicious, so you just might decide to have one every day, making for a healthier, leaner lifestyle.
The good news is this metabolic boosting, cleansing, detox cocktail does much much more. Everyone should be doing this for health, especially if you're trying to lose weight and burn fat.
Here is your new metabolic boosting cleansing morning ritual that breaks the overnight 12-hour fast, which is why it needs to provide the essential nutrients your body needs. No more and no less.
Every good smoothie starts with the best ingredients. Prioritize protein, using Non-GMO Whey to feed muscle and skeletal tissue, boost metabolism by up to 25 percent, block cortisol (stress hormones) that cause belly fat and stop weight loss, boost mood and brain health, all while nourishing hair skin and nails.
Whey alkalizes your body and aids in the detox process without making you feel terrible.Add in the right detox boosters that nourish better without all of the sugar and calories.
Why add detox-boosting super foods? You would have to juice over 30 pounds of produce, and you still wouldn’t come close to the nutrition found in certain super foods (found in LynFit Thyro-Boost).
Studies show that these super food ingredients play a critical role in promoting health and wellness. They encourage your body’s natural cleansing process, helping to flush a wide variety of substances out of your body; especially heavy metals and pesticides, among other disease-causing substances (this is why we cleanse).
Further, they help control hunger, cravings, and body odor, and encourages healing, protects against cancer, and the ravages of treatment, while helping to fight against the growth of candida (also a known cause for fatigue and cravings).
These super power foods also possess an amazing range of benefits because they contain the highest amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients needed for cardiovascular, muscular, and neural health; not to mention the Ashwagandha, that helps your body combat stress, keeping your cortisol (stress hormones) levels in check.
When you take them in liquid extract form (like in LynFit Thyro-Boost), nutrient uptake is increased, meaning they are more easily soaked up. Nutrients like iodine, among others, build up your thyroid and body, giving it the fuel it needs to send thyroid hormones throughout your entire body, stopping your metabolism from slowing down.
Everyone needs to consider taking this, even if they are not hypothyroid. This liquid extract supplement is an adaptogen, meaning your body will use it if it needs it, and won't if it doesn’t, so it does no harm.
Feeding your thyroid is like fertilizing your garden; it helps everything move a little faster and become healthier. (*Note: If you’re not hypothyroid it’s still a good idea to take LynFit Thyro-Boost. You’ll just need to take it once vs. twice a day.)
The best part about this supplement is that it’s safe to take, and actually suggested along with your medication. Be aware that your medication may work more efficiently after cleansing and using super foods so that you may need less. Be sure to tell your doctor so he or she can adjust the amount you’re taking.
Don’t let the name Thyro-Boost fool you. It’s called Thyro-Boost because it helps feed and nourish the thyroid, which is the master gland of your body. Feed it right, and it takes care of your overall health.
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- A balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids
Plus, rich sources of antioxidants from super foods in the form of extracts, which are more potent, like:
- Black walnut
- Shepard’s purse
- Irish moss
The most important thing to remember when you decide to cleanse or fast is to DO NO HARM FIRST! That means providing your body with what it needs to stay healthy first. This is the best way to jump-start your weight loss and keep it off.
The truth is - every really good diet is a cleanse in disguise!
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!
