The Best Protein for Weight Loss and Health

If you're not losing weight and melting off belly fat, your protein choices may be to blame. Here's the "411" on why whey protein is the best when it comes to weight loss and melting off stored fat.

Some proteins can boost metabolism and speed up weight loss, while others may slow it down and stop weight loss from occurring at all. Certain proteins have been used by people looking to add bulk and gain weight, and it's critical that you know the difference between the two, allowing you to choose the protein that's right for you, helping you reach your goals. LynFit Complete Protein is not only the best tasting whey protein, but it also provides the best health and nutrition benefits.

Protein is an essential nutrient when it comes to keeping your body healthy and maintaining our busy lifestyles; yet, most of us are deficient in it. This sets us up for lackluster health and slows our metabolism. But before you grab that pre-made (ready to drink) protein shake, you're going to want to know all of the miraculous things this nutrient can do for you and how to choose the right kind.

You'll also need to know how much and when you should consume it for maximum weight loss and health boost. More importantly, why LynFit Complete Protein does this better than any other protein you can buy. 


When it comes to killing cravings and preventing hunger, nothing satisfies like protein. Since protein takes longer to digest it makes you feel fuller longer; great news if you're trying to lose or maintain your weight, especially if you're prone to snacking on unhealthy snacks. A recent study in Nutrition Research (please site ) also reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein reported feeling fuller and consumed

A recent study in Nutrition Research reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein daily reported feeling fuller and consumed fewer calories during the day than those who drank other forms of protein. Whey helps to prevent the blood sugar dips that signal hunger and promote cravings.


Whey protein manages your middle better and beats bloat while melting off that stubborn belly fat. Whey's sophisticated structure causes your body to takes calories and burn them as heat rather than storing them as fat. But that's not all; whey has been known to reduce blood sugar, which can also trigger high blood pressure, playing a critical role in decreasing and preventing blood sugar issues. including helping to

Additionally, whey helps manage diabetic blood sugar issues and helps to increase blood amino acids that prevent muscle loss, helping keep your metabolism running at optimum speed, which prevents weight gain.

In order to lose weight, we must control our cortisol levels. Excess cortisol can prevent weight loss and make it harder to keep the pounds off. Cortisol breaks down muscle tissue which slows down our metabolic rate and increases our body fat which becomes a metabolic nightmare.

LynFit whey protein has a reputation for being the best food when it comes to preventing cortisol levels from rising.

Cortisol levels are also associated with bone loss, and while we can't prevent stress in our lives, we can do something to combat its effects — drink a LynFit Whey Protein Shake or eat a LynFit Lean Bar each day.


Energy comes from getting the right combination of nutrients, and protein is one of the most important nutrients when it comes to sustainable energy.

While most of us tend to crave carbs when we need quick energy (that's why we tend to reach for simple carbs), we often forget that these simple carbs also send us crashing shortly after, sending us to look for more food shortly after, despite the fact that we just ate. 

It's life-changing once you remember that protein is the better choice. It takes your body longer to digest protein, and in return, it provides long lasting balanced energy, keeping you feeling full, helping to prevent hunger and cravings for the wrong kind of foods.

Studies show that eating or drinking whey protein daily as a part of a diet that's low in fat and cholesterol, can help maintain a healthy heart. After all, your heart is a muscle too.


Protein is the fuel of choice for your muscles and it helps preserve this precious tissue while promoting fat burning. Everyday activities such as carrying grocery bags and walking all take muscle.

Muscles need the specific amino acids found in "complete" protein to perform, as well as repair after a workout. Additionally, chronic everyday stress, illness, or injury increases your protein needs. Bottom line, our body can't heal properly unless we provide the right kind of nutrients that help it repair, hence preserving the muscle.

LynFit Whey Protein is made from the highest quality source of whey protein, all thanks to its purity and the fact that it doesn't contain added carbs, fillers, fats, or other inferior ingredients such as dairy or vegetarian sources.

How do you know if your protein does all of this? That's simple — if it doesn't say LynFit, it probably doesn't, especially if you purchased it in a store.
LynFit Tip: Your body’s ability to absorb protein and other nutrients is at its peak shortly after you work out or any type physical activity, such as mowing the lawn, shopping, or simply cleaning the house. If you drink a Protein Shake or eat a Lean Bar you'll help your body to be more toned and healthy so you can keep moving and look good doing it.


Protein helps build muscle, and as we age, we tend to lose muscle tone and strength. But, that can be prevented if you eat sufficient amounts of the right kind of protein every day. Consuming the right amount of protein, spaced throughout your day, is the best way to prevent muscle loss from happening in the first place. And it might also slow down the loss of muscle mass when you are sick or under stress.

It's recommended that we consume 24–27 grams of lean protein at each meal and combine that with weight lifting /resistance training two times per week to maintain strength, boost health and metabolism for the rest of your life.


Whey protein contains the exact amount of amino acids needed to increase levels of serotonin and regulate the hormones that can wreak havoc on our body, causing symptoms like depression, anxiety, and illness.

We are what we eat every day, and this is even more important when it comes to our mood and mental well-being.

Who needs whey? Everyone!

Kids need protein as they grow for strong muscles and bones (including teeth). Protein is more important for your kid's development than you might realize. But just because they need it doesn't mean you'll get them to eat it. That's where LynFit Protein Shakes and Lean Bars come in.

They can help kids, especially active ones, or kids that suffer from stress, to get enough of the right kind of protein. LynFit's line of Complete Protein products is delicious and nutrient-packed. LynFit Shakes and Lean Bars are simply the best choices. Martha Stewart was my taste tester, and she knows a thing or two about good taste.

The latest research shows that higher levels of protein are needed for adults age 65+ to prevent muscle loss that accelerates with aging. It's suggested that older adults double up their protein intake for better health.  Adding these sophisticated forms of protein is the best way to boost health while keeping your cholesterol and blood pressure in check.

A LynFit Whey Protein Shake or Lean Bar a day is the best way to keep the doctor away. Apples can't even compare!

The Most Reliable Cold Remedies — Chicken Soup Included

The Most Reliable Cold Remedies

If you ask me, there’s nothing worse than being sick. So I like to get better as fast as I can. Being sick can wreck havoc on your weight loss program too. Most cold and flu remedies can slow down your already sluggish metabolism. The truth is, it turns out that your grandma was right when she said that soothing the common cold is as easy as gargling with salt water and spooning down chicken soup.

Here are the most effective ways to help with your symptoms from the common cold. These can be done at home and will have you feeling better in no time. They won’t slow your metabolism, so you can continue to healthfully lose weight even when you’re sick.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
You’ve heard this a thousand times, but you can never hear it enough — drink lots of fluids. Make it enticing, so you actually do it. Try adding a wedge of lemon to warm water and keep refilling your cup every time you empty it. You should be emptying it each and every hour if you want to get better faster. The American Lung Association recommends drinking eight glasses of water daily when trying to get rid of a common cold. Staying hydrated helps moisturize the lining of the nose and throat, which makes mucus easier to clear. It also keeps your metabolism revved up. Did you know that being dehydrated can slow your metabolism by 3 percent? Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks, as they can be dehydrating.

Power Up Your Immunity with LynFit Daily Power Shot
Experts say taking a daily multivitamin and mineral can be helpful. Meeting your body’s nutritional needs may help prevent colds and flu as well as infection. Taking LynFit Daily Power Shot does that and more. It also provides energy, so you’re not as cranky when you’re not feeling well.

LynFit Daily Power Shot contains all of the best ingredients when it comes to staying healthy, such as 100 percent of your daily needs of Vitamin C. That's right up there with chicken soup. It also contains 100 percent of your daily requirement of zinc, which can also decrease the symptoms of the common cold. LynFit Daily Power Shot contains over 100 vitamins and minerals that are fast acting, so you get relief fast.

Moisturize Your Air and Your Nose
You can help keep nasal and throat passages moist by using an air humidifier, particularly in the winter months when heating makes the air inside your home very dry. This is good, not only for nasal passages but your skin as well. 

You can moisturize your nose to prevent nasal dryness with salt water nose sprays found at local drugstores or health food stores. Those made with a saline (salt water) solution are easy to use and very effective, without hurting your metabolism the way taking too much medication can. A word of caution — they don’t get you better quickly, they simply mask symptoms.

Eat Chicken Soup
What they say about chicken soup being good for a cold is all true. Mostly because the salt it contains hydrates us and loosens up mucus membranes. Have you ever noticed how your nose runs when you eat certain foods? Hydrating is key when it comes to getting healthy and staying healthy. The problem is that not all chicken soups are quite so good for your health or metabolism. I recommend you making my chicken soup recipe found in The Metabolism Solution to keep your metabolism from being slowed down.

Gargle with Warm Water
A recent study in which participants gargled with warm water three times daily found that the ritual can help prevent upper respiratory tract infections. So gargle your way to health before your cold gets any worse. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound a cure. 

Everyone Needs Vitamin D — So Boost It
Vitamin D gets overlooked for a lot of reasons, but taking extra can help boost immunity in many ways, including helping boost immunity to help you get better fast when you're sick. However, not all vitamin D supplements are created equal. Only LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost has the proper amount of the highest quality vitamin D you can find. You will not find this quality in your neighborhood warehouse store. You’ll feel a difference the first time you take it. 

Stock Your Medicine Cabinet with Natural Remedies
Sometimes we need over-the-counter remedies, but whenever possible, reach for all-natural instead. There's no denying that over-the-counter cold remedies can provide temporary relief, but in the long run, staying healthy is the best way to prevent getting sick. Replace your not-so-healthy medications with the following to help prevent getting sick in the first place.

For Pain Relief: – LynFit Recovery Agent
Can't Sleep: LynFit Lean Sleep

Don't Forget Omega 3 for Inflammation
Omega 3 fatty acids have many health benefits; they are not only good for the role they play in heart health, but they're especially good at helping to keep you feeling full, boosting mood, keeping blood sugar levels in check, and fighting against inflammation. All of this makes it a must have when it comes to fighting common cold symptoms and losing weight. Most people don’t realize how beneficial Omega 3s are and, therefore, don’t take them. Quite frankly, everyone should be on Omega 3 every day.

LynFit Pure Omega 3 has been shown to lower triglycerides and total cholesterol which play a critical role in your metabolism. LynFit Pure Omega 3 is also important for brain function, mood, memory, and joint mobility. It has been found to help reduce inflammation from arthritis, improve eye health, and contribute to healthy hair, skin, and nails, as well as a normally functioning immune system. Who doesn’t want all that?
