Eat, Drink, and Stay Healthy Naturally!
'Tis the season of overdoing it, and that usually means we end up getting sick. We seem to be exhausted all the time, and that almost always means we gain weight.
If you want to avoid getting sick this year, and you're determined not to gain weight, I've got great news for you — it's possible! All you have to do is let Mother Nature lend a helping hand. Throw out those metabolism-slowing, immune-killing, quick fixes and turn to your natural medicine cabinet instead. Plus, natural remedies aren't as likely to damage your liver and kidneys.
From aches and pains to low energy to just giving your metabolism the boost it needs to help you keep off those holiday pounds, even when you're not perfect — remember, a healthier life is a happier life. And, prevention is the best cure.
If you were to come over to my house and complain of an ailment or your child got an injury while visiting, you might be surprised to see me open up my medicine cabinet and proceed to pull out various natural remedies. After all, it's no secret that I have a love affair for alternative, natural treatments, and have been studying them for the past 25+ years.
Recently, a friend was asking me what I do when I get aches and pains, among other things. I rattled off some suggestions and talked about the things I keep in my home and use on a regular basis. She was amazed to learn that everything we put into our bodies has either a negative or positive effect on us — especially when it comes to losing weight and boosting metabolism.
She was also shocked to learn that some of the things we do every day can impair healing, which isn't good for aches and pains in the long run or slow down our metabolism, often causing weight gain or making it difficult to lose weight.
In a short speech, any medicine that says "anti" on the label can slow our metabolism and even affect liver and kidney functions over time.
If you have a problem, LynFit Nutrition has a solution. Safe (safety should always come first) all-natural vitamins, minerals, and other supplements, naturally inspired and perfected by LynFit Nutrition. We help fix what ails you.
Some people never seem to catch "it." And, chances are, those same people are ones who use natural ways to stay away from those pesky viruses that prey on our weaknesses (like eating too much sugar when we're tired).
Research has shown that healthy habits, naturally supporting the immune system, can dramatically reduce "catching a cold." And, should you happen to catch a "bug," these same strategies can help in reducing the severity of symptoms.
Choosing a clean, metabolic boosting diet is the number one strategy for staying healthy, combatting the common cold, and alleviating aches and pains. Doing so will boost your immune system and reduce inflammation, helping you to recover more quickly.
A clean, metabolic boosting diet means eating only real, whole foods — the way nature intended.
The priority when it comes to eating healthy is to Power Your Immunity with Protein. It's critical to have at least one LynFit Complete Whey Protein Shake per day to feed and nourish your body. Doing so will also keep weight gain away.
The high-quality whey LynFit Nutrition uses in its Complete Protein Shakes and Lean Bars is the purest that can be found. While it boosts your metabolism, it also helps to boost your immunity as well. LynFit Nutrition Whey Protein is an excellent source of calcium, and calcium helps to lower blood sugar levels while building healthier, stronger bones.
Each time you eat a LynFit Lean Bar you're getting one-third of your daily protein and fiber from a prebiotic source that will help to keep you regular and your gut healthy. They taste delicious and come in handy for those moments when you need comfort food. There simply is no other protein bar like it!
My personal Lean Bar favorite is Chewy Chocolate. It tastes like a Tootsie Roll® without the sugar. Sometimes, I'll twist it together with peanut butter — "You got peanut butter on my chocolate........." Just sayin....
Choose fresh vegetables and some citrus fruits, being mindful to stay away from powdered veggie products, juices and juicing, and canned or processed options due to them causing a spike in blood sugar levels. These spikes are awful for aches and pains and cause weight gain. They also lower your resistance by weakening your immunity.
When it comes to fruits and veggies, it's best to eat the real thing. Your body will burn more calories in the digestion process. If you're trying to lose weight, stick to 1–2 servings of fruit per day, max, even if you're sick.
These healthy habits below will also help to keep you feeling full, so you don't overeat on the wrong kinds of food when temptation is at its peak.
- Add plenty of natural herbs and spices to your meals, such as garlic and thyme
- Use a mixed blend of cold pressed herbs instead of butter and saturated fats
- Include lean, fresh, metabolic boosting proteins/meats (in addition to your Protein Shakes and/or Lean Bars). Free-range and organic are best, and watch your portion sizes. A serving size should be the size of a small deck of cards.
Stay away from processed foods (this includes processed store-bought protein bars and shakes — you'll always get what you pay for), sugars, and most carbs. They will spike blood sugar levels and switch the pain switch on. Most contain additives that weaken our immune system. The best rule of thumb is to follow my LynFit Nutrition Plans and Resources for the cleanest eating possible.
And don't forget that you can find over 100 delicious, thermogenic recipes in my book, The Metabolism Solution.
Getting enough rest is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. It will help your body heal, regulate your metabolism, and kill hunger and cravings.
Instead of reaching for drugs to improve sleep, swap out the nighttime medicines that clog your liver and negatively affect your weight loss with LynFit Lean Sleep. You'll have the best night's sleep ever, and it won't harm your health or slow your metabolism.
LynFit Lean Sleep contains the perfect amount of melatonin to help you sleep without feeling groggy when you wake up. Lean Sleep is a proven regulator of brown fat that helps you burn more calories all day long. So you'll melt off belly fat — even while you sleep. So don't go to bed without taking 1–2 LynFit Lean Sleep (if you're struggling, you can take up to three per night).
Before bedtime, be sure to:
- Avoid foods and drinks containing caffeine
- Avoid alcohol in the evenings
- Eat dinner earlier in the evening to allow for optimal digestion
- Turn off the television and anything that has bright lights before bedtime to help you relax (this includes tablets and phones)
- Avoid stress at all costs
- Do your workouts earlier in the day vs. later. You'll sleep better and burn more fat.
BOOST YOUR THYROID
Your thyroid produces hormones which regulate your body's metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development, and bone maintenance. It's imperative that we keep it in optimal functioning condition. LynFit Nutrition to the rescue with LynFit Thyro-Boost.
Thyro-Boost is a sophisticated blend loaded with more than a dozen adaptogenic herbs and natural ingredients. Adding herbs and natural supplements are a simple yet powerful way to boost the immune system, helping us to avoid colds, decrease inflammation (underlying cause of pain), and reduce hot flashes.
What is an adaptogenic herb? Herbs that are known as adaptogens are a unique group of ingredients used to improve the health of the adrenal system — the system in charge of managing your body's hormonal response to stress. This includes the thyroid, which is highly sensitive to stress. That's why when you're stressed it's harder to lose weight and more prone to getting sick.
Think your thyroid is fine and you don't need a little support? Think again. When it comes to your health, everyone needs this support in their personal medicine cabinet. You can read an in-depth summary of the benefits of LynFit Thyro-Boost here, and I'm sure you'll agree that it's a much-needed support that everyone needs.
YOUR DAILY VITAMIN D REQUIREMENT
During the winter months, it is very common to become deficient in Vitamin D, regardless of where you live. Taking the time to go out into the sun regularly will help the body create this essential nutrient naturally if your system is working correctly.
If it isn't, or you aren't spending enough time outdoors (I say even if you are), it's important to take LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost, a high-quality vitamin D supplement that will help you get the vitamin D your body needs, along with an extra dose of immune health boosting blends.
By taking two (2) LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost daily, you'll not only keep your bones strong, but you'll also help fight off the common cold or at a minimum, shorten the duration of it.
THE WAY NATURE INTENDED
Sure, Tylenol® and other over-the-counter drugs might seem like a good idea, but what you don't know may hurt your health and make the pain last longer. These types of drugs may inhibit your body's healing process vs. helping it. Go natural instead, the way nature intended.
So, what's in that natural medicine cabinet I'd open if you came to my home and you had aches, pains, and ailments? You'd find LynFit Complete Shakes, Lean Bars, Lean Sleep, Thyro-Boost, and Vitamin D3 Boost. Simply put, you'd find your answer for how to eat, drink, and stay healthy!

It Worked For Her, It Can Work For You: A Life Changing Transformation
My life's mission is to help anyone who struggles with weight loss by teaching them how to avoid the pitfalls and diet traps I fell into. I am thrilled to share this makeover with you. Unlike most makeovers you see on television and in ads, this makeover is 100% real and authentic. In fact, "First for Women" magazine just featured this story because it' so special.
You may recognize this special lady from being on the cover of my book, "The Metabolism Solution". I'd like to tell you why I chose her. I get thousands of stories submitted showing dramatic transformations, but this one was very different. You see Janine faced every obstacle possible and any one of them could have stopped her from losing weight and getting fit. Instead, she decided to fight this battle and was willing to do whatever it took: Full surrender, all in 100%. And guess what? She has lost 85 pounds and dropped 8 pants sizes, despite the fact that she suffered with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and debilitating pain from rheumatoid arthritis. She could barely get off the couch, let alone exercise.
Janine hated herself. Can you relate? I can. She saw me on the Dr. Oz Show and decided to email me for help. This is the very reason why I answer all of my emails. Considering the sheer volume that I receive it might take me a couple of days to get through them all, but I do answer every single one of them myself. I know the depression, sadness, and loneliness that can completely surround you, having gone through being overweight and suffering with depression myself. I can't afford to let one cry for help go unheard.
After Janine emailed me I suggested that she begin by replacing her breakfast and lunch with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake (made with water and ice only) to boost her metabolism. For a healthy dinner, focus on 3 ounces of fish and a huge serving of vegetables and a salad. I also suggested that she begin taking LynFit Carb Edge twice a day (at lunch and again at 3pm) to help lower her blood sugar, which is the secret to losing weight faster and easier. Another recommendation was that she take LynFit Recovery Agent twice a day, as recommended on the label, instead of all the over-the-counter medications she was using to ease her pain. Those over-the-counter pain medications also slow metabolism and sap energy. And the most important thing I told her? If you follow the plan you will lose 1 pound a day.
Notice I didn't tell Janine to exercise? There was a good reason for this. Exercise can be helpful when it comes to boosting metabolism but it can also slow your metabolism if it's not done the right way. I also don't focus too much on exercise at first because lots of people think they will only lose weight if they exercise, and that's just not true. The right diet will allow you to lose weight even without exercise. Also, many people use exercise as an excuse to eat more, justifying it since they worked out. I wanted to prove to Janine that she could quickly lose weight no matter how sluggish her metabolism was - even sitting on the couch.
Janine noticed fast results. Her bloat, fatigue and depression lifted, and her energy returned which made it easy to stick to the plan. She also gained control of her emotional eating. Since she was feeling better and drinking Protein Shakes she wasn't focused on what she was supposed to be eating. She got busy with life instead. Actually, she says that drinking the Protein Shakes was the best thing she had ever done. It made losing weight fast and easy and saved on the grocery bill as well. She used the time saved eating to walk outside and get some moderate exercise. She dropped from a pants size 20 to a size 4 and no longer needs treatment for any of her health problems. Enough of me telling you about her - let's hear from this special lady herself.
"I marvel today at the difference in my life. I used to take 9 prescription drugs a day - now I take none. I became healthy, but most importantly, I became whole. My weight loss has not only changed my life but my whole family is happier and healthier because I learned how to take care of me. My teenage daughter has also lost 65 pounds because I no longer have as much junk food in the house. She is now happier and doesn't get bullied anymore."
A personal glimpse into Janine:
Favorite Supplements and Routine: LynFit Recovery Agent (when waking up), LynFit Accelerator (before cardio or lifting), followed by LynFit Cutting Edge and LynFit Omega-3
Favorite Protein Shake: Definitely green with either Chocolate or Vanilla Protein (both rock!)
Favorite Recipe: Portobello Mushroom Pizza

If you need help, like Janine did, please consider a phone coaching session and these results can be yours too. Janine is now a weight loss coach here at LynFit and she can help you as well.
You can check out Janine's story at "First for Women" magazine's current issue which is available at newsstands and by subscription at the time of this writing.
Are you ready to lose 1 pound per day? I dare you!
Nix Joint Pain And Fatigue While Boosting Mood
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.

Staying Healthy through Cold and Flu Season
It’s cold and flu season and everyone is running to get the flu shot. That’s not the only thing you need to do to stay healthy! Every day we are infected with viruses and IF our immune systems are strong enough they will fight them off and we will not get sick BUT if we are under stress, become anxious or aren’t eating or sleeping right, our immune systems won’t be strong enough to fight off these harmful viruses. I’m not saying that I am for or against the flu vaccine, BUT have you ever asked yourself …if the flu shot works then why are so many people getting the flu?
DID you know…
- The flu shot has to be in your system for 2 weeks to become effective and offer full immunity
- Most people actually contact the flu while they are waiting to get their shot and that’s why they get sick right after, it’s NOT from the vaccine.
- The flu does NOT protect you from the basic cold, respiratory illness, sinus infection, pneumonia, bronchitis or stomach flu, it only protects you from the flu!
- The studies that support the flu vaccine over-state their effectiveness
Did you know that IF our immune systems are strong enough they can protect us from colds and flu and even the most deadly diseases?
Here are the best ways to SUPER CHARGE your immunity to stay healthy for life NOT just cold and flu season
●Stay hydrated by drinking lots of fluids especially HOT TEA. Drinking hot tea/fluids has been shown to help wash the bacteria into your digestive tract, where the “Chemical Stew” in your stomach can kill off the germs before they spread throughout your body. You can also gargle with warm water w/ salt or Listerine to help remove bacteria that sits in the back of your throat for instant relief.
●My favorite IMMUNE BOOSTER is AHCC also known as medicinal mushrooms. AHCC is THE most researched specialty immune ingredient in the world. These medicinal mushrooms turn up the dial on your natural immune response to help fight off a wide range of immune system threats. * Take AHCC along with your flu shot to help boost your immunity.
● Eat specifically to boost your immunity. Pre (NOT PRO) Biotics are one of the oldest tricks in the books when it comes to staying healthy. LynFIT’s Lean Bars contain Pre Biotics which help “FEED and grow” the good bacteria that’s found in our guts and help produce a strong immunity! Pre Biotics are also known to improve digestive health like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, antibiotic or traveler’s diarrhea or colitis by normalizing bowel function and Pre biotic fiber also aids in calcium absorption! Who knew eating a LynFIT Chewy Chocolate Lean Bar would be so good for your health and your weight loss! What a lot of people don’t know is that taking pro biotics takes the job of producing good bacteria away from your body! Super charging your immunity is all about getting your body to do the job and be good at it versus taking lots of supplements that do it and actually make it worse because your body’s defense system can go to sleep instead of becoming a strong fighting army that’s ready for combat when we are faced with illness or disease.
●Experts all agree that taking vitamin C, Zinc, among other Anti-Oxidant fighters, are worth the expense when it comes to fighting off illness. Who wants to take 30 different supplements when you’re not feeling well or wait until they work? NOT ME! I depend on LynFIT”S Daily power shot because it’s loaded with vitamin C, Zinc and all of the anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that boost immunity and because it’s in a liquid form, it’s digested faster and you feel better faster! If you are really struggling and low on energy, take the Daily Power Shot again before a workout to provide fast energy to help get you through the most grueling workouts!
●KEEP MOVING to boost immunity- Exercise can either boost immunity or hurt it. In order to boost your body’s immune response you need to do less. I suggest doing 50% of you usual workout or only giving it 50% of your energy. You should always leave a workout wanting more not over doing it! Try my recovery stretch you’ll feel a little better and your body won’t be so stiff!
