Sometimes You Just Need The Right Tools To Spark Change
Have you ever heard the saying, "If you could do it yourself, you would have already"?
I think that's true to a point. And probably why you might still be struggling to lose that five, ten, fifteen or more pounds. You just may be doing the same things, but expecting different results, and that's more than likely not going to happen.
Sometimes, all you need are the right tools to spark that change. Losing weight is always easier with support!
As many of you know, I'm all about finding solutions to the toughest weight loss problems, so I'm a big fan of supplements. They make losing weight easier, especially when they are used correctly. We call this nutrient-partitioning in my world.
Here are some of the ways that the strategic use of specific supplements can help you stop struggling and start losing the same day you start!
LynFit Thyro-Boost: This supplement helps reduce stress levels which can reduce the odds of emotional eating. Thyro-Boost also helps to balance and regulate hormones.
LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost: Taking in adequate Vitamin D can help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a form of depression that can make losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle harder. Vitamin D3 Boost will also help melt off stubborn belly fat.
LynFit Lean Sleep: A good night's sleep just makes everything easier, and LynFit Lean Sleep helps you do more than sleep better, it also works as a powerful antioxidant-boosting immunization, helping to regulate (reduce) belly fat because it helps reduce cortisol levels.
LynFit Pure Omega 3: It helps your body absorb the nutrients you take in, balances blood sugar, and boosts mood. When we feel better, we eat better. Omega 3 also helps decrease the inflammation that can cause aches, pains, and weight gain.
LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore: This two-in-in supplement helps improve digestion and restores gut health so you feel less bloated and your belly returns to flat. Have you ever noticed that when you feel thinner, you eat cleaner? There's a reason for that!
LynFit Accelerator Advanced: This two-in-one supplement naturally boosts metabolism, kills hunger and cravings, reduces blood sugar levels, and primes the body for maximum weight loss.
LynFit Cutting Edge: Cutting Edge helps the body to burn fat, reduces cellulite, and prevents new fat cells from being formed.
LynFit Daily Power Shot: Over 90 essential nutrients packed into one dynamite supplement that nourishes and protects your body by providing it every nutrient it needs to stay healthy while providing natural energy in the exact amount needed in a highly efficient, delicious liquid colloidal form.
Protein, Protein, Protein: Protein should be the #1 priority on everyone's list. Every good diet and weight loss plan should begin with the very best nutrition, and it doesn't get better than LynFit's premium whey protein found in LynFit Complete Protein, LynFit Complete Protein Advanced, and LynFit Lean Bars.
*NOTE: LynFit Nutrition is the only company who uses premium grade whey in their protein bars. It's the only whey to boost metabolism. A nourished, healthy body loses weight easier and craves less.
Improving physical fitness leads to a physiological reduction in stress levels which can also decrease emotional eating, make it easier to sleep and build confidence in every area of your life.
BELIEVING, BEGINNING, AND BECOMING
It's critical that you cleanse and detoxify your thoughts and replace them with believing, beginning, and becoming. If you don't have faith and believe you CAN do it, you'll never begin by taking that first step to becoming your very best.
As you can see, every area of your life directly affects all areas, and that's why a holistic approach works the best.
On the other hand, if you're one-of-those "I'll do it myself", "my way" people, and focus on eating cleaner and getting some exercise, your plan might work until......
The "until" could be something stressful happening, causing you to eat emotionally, and you don't have the right kind of food handy (Protein Shakes and Lean Bars). You could wind up frustrated and fall off your new leaner lifestyle.
Or, "until" could be winter coming or you're just not getting outside enough, causing you to feel sad and depressed. These bad mood slumps can wreck the best plans.
Maybe, "until" is when you can't sleep due to hormones or life, leading to chronic fatigue, which is lethal for weight loss because it makes it harder to prepare healthy meals. That is why we usually grab fast comfort food or extra caffeine.
You get the point :)
There are thousands of "until" scenarios and each one set us up to fail. However, the solutions and tools help set you up for success and a healthy lifestyle change that can last a last a lifetime with continual ongoing success in every area of your life.
On a related note, it drives me crazy when people "think" they don't need supplements to lose weight. The smart use of specific supplements is the best way to guarantee that your body stays nourished and healthy, turning the weight gain switch to the off position while preventing the much feared metabolic shutdown.
If what you've been doing isn't working, it's time for a new way to lose weight. A metabolic boosting approach!
One piece I think you need to consider is the science of cleansing/fasting and the use of the right combination of supplements to promote lasting change.
Metabolic boosting cleansing (the smart way to fast) is at the heart of the Lose 1 Pound Per Day program because it's the key to losing weight fast, and safely. I went into detail about the correct way to cleanse in the blog article, "Cleanse Away Those Unwanted Pounds!" I encourage you to read the article and watch the accompanying video. I'm sure it will bring just the right amount of hope and encouragement. Hopefully, it will get you off your butt and on the road toward losing weight and melting fat off your belly, butt, and wherever else you may need it.
Need even more motivation? Check out the video testimonials and Before and After photos of past and current LynFit clients. And, please send us your photos so we can celebrate your journey with you. Who knows, your story may be the very one that inspires someone else to take that first step!
Happy cleansing, and don't forget to download the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Plan for specific food lists, cleaning water recipes, soup recipes, and dessert recipes clean enough to eat, even while cleansing!
BELIEVE. BEGIN. BECOME.
Jump-Start Your Metabolism & Burn Off Excess CaloriesBefore I get started, I have to make my Lisa Lynn Public Service Announcement: You cannot lose weight and keep it off with exercise alone.....
Countless studies published in the Journal of Lipids prove that combination-ingredient dietary supplements, combined with metabolic boosting meal replacement high-quality, whey protein shakes or protein bars, help melt belly fat and boost weight loss 40 percent more than exercise alone. This is especially true if you are apple-shaped and store excess belly fat.
You can jump-start your metabolism and burn off excess calories with one simple upgrade to your fitness routine. The best part? You don't need to go out and invest money for a piece of fancy equipment to perform these explosive moves. You can use what you probably already have in your home.
And, let's be real — who doesn't need to burn off excess calories this time of year?
All you need is a mini-platform ranging in height from four inches to any height you can safely jump on or over. Even a step or stair will do. For the sake of describing the movements, we're going to call it a "hop box."
Research from the American Council on Exercise shows you'll burn 15 calories more per minute during your HIT-metabolic boosting workout when you include the hop box. The spike comes from the added challenge of simply jumping onto a specific target.
But be aware, this jumping revs up your heart rate because you're hoisting your body weight up against gravity.
It will work all your major muscles, especially abs, glutes, and quads, to propel you while building your smaller stability muscles (which are worked as you land) that are equally as important but almost always overlooked.
As you can see, a hop box can be a one-stop-shop for reshaping muscles, from head to toe.
You can easily add this to your current workout by doing your strength training moves on the box. This increases the intensity of the moves by simply changing the angles. Making subtle changes in your workout, like changing the angle, require more balance and power.
- Set a goal before you begin, such as ten repetitions of each move
- Do "1-more" of each move than you did last time
- Keep track of how many of each move you can initially do. Make a note of the extra reps you can do as you progress. This will help motivate you by allowing you to visibly see and feel how much stronger and leaner you're becoming.
THE HOP BOX WORKOUT
Intensity level: 8–9 — Start wherever you are and remember that anything extra you do counts as more. This is an eight on the RPE scale (rate of perceived exertion) out of 10.
Total time: 30 minutes — You can break it down into (3) 10-minute sessions.
- A timer (the timer on your phone works great)
- A step-stool, plyo box, or even a sturdy milk crate can work. Beginners should begin at 20-inches height or less. If you're more advanced, you can use 24–30 inches. If you're outside, a park bench is perfect.
How you do it: Before beginning each move, set your time to one minute and perform your first set, working as quickly as possible, using good form and aiming to complete the repetitions in less than the minute allowed. Use any remaining time to recover and rest before continuing. This is all about working smarter, not harder. Then, finish the remaining six sets, or as many as you can.
How often to do it: Perform this workout three times weekly, allowing one day in between. Short on time? Done one move daily for one minute. The goal is seven sets.
Warm up first: For three minutes, do as many rounds as possible of each of the following:
- 10 squats
- 10 single leg lunges onto the box (10 on each side)
- Frog kicks
The Workout Movements
#1: The Burpee Box Hop (I call these "burp-up your last mealies")
- Stand up in front of the box with your feet hip-width apart to begin
- Crouch down and place your hands on the box, jump feet back to a plank position and do a full push-up (lower your entire body — thighs and chest — all the way to the floor). Push back up to a plank position and "hop" feet back up towards your hands. Stand back up and hop onto the box.
(NOTE: Make sure to keep your knees soft and use your arms to swing yourself up onto the box and land with both feet securely on the box)
- Step down on the other side. That's one!
- Repeat at least 10 times or for one minute straight
#2: The Incline Box Push-Up
- Start this move in plank position with your palms on the box. Lower your chest on the box until it touches it, keeping your elbows tight to your side (this way is best for beginners).
- Push yourself back up to a plank position. That's one!
- Perform at 10 times without resting or as many as you can safely perform
#3: Box Step-Up
- Stand, facing the box with your left foot on top of the box, knee bent, and arms by your side
- Push off using your right foot as if you're jumping (exploding) onto the box and bring your bent, stable knee up to your chest (as if to give your knee a kiss).
- Lower your right leg back to the start position, making sure to land with knees slight bent (soft knees)
- That's one! Continue on the same side for 4–5 reps and then switch legs, repeating on the other side.
- Do two sets and rest for the remainder of the minute drill. If you finish early, allow your body and breath to recover.
#4: Tricep Box Dips
- Sit on the edge of the box, facing away from it, with hands on the edge and fingertips pointing towards the floor.
- Walk feet forward away from the box until legs are straight (beginners, keep legs bent to make it easier).
- Keep butt close to the box as you bend your elbows behind you until your arms form a 90° angle
- Push yourself up, using the box to push off as if you're pushing yourself down until you're back up to the starting position
- That's one!
- Do 10 reps and rest for the remainder of the minute
#5: On the Box Frog Kicks
- Sit on top of the box, close to the edge with legs into the chest
- Slowly lean your torso back and extend your legs out while making sure to keep your core tight
- Explode back up to the starting position
- That's one!
- Do 25 reps and rest for the remainder of the minute. For beginners, you can secure yourself using your arms placed behind you and allowing yourself to push off using them.
Repeat the five moves above six more times......
You'll burn 250 calories (more if you're a male) in addition to tightening and toning your body.
Did you know that just because you're working out doesn't mean you'll burn fat? That's what fat-burning supplements are for. Want more accelerated fat burning? Try these simple steps to promote fat-burning vs. the fat released in your workout from being stored as fat in your cells:
- Take (1–2) LynFit Cutting Edge and (1) LynFit Accelerator before your workout, then
- Take (1–2) LynFit Cutting Edge immediately after your workout
- If you struggle with sore and achy joints, take (1–2) LynFit Pure Omega 3 immediately after you work out to help reduce inflammation. And, drink a lot of water or green tea.

Make A Little Fat-Melting Magic This Holiday Season

(5–6) Ice cubes
(½ tsp) Rum extract
(¼ tsp) Nutmeg (plus more to sprinkle on top)
This recipe always receives Five Star reviews at my parties!
METABOLIC BOOSTING, FAT MELTING COCKTAILS (or, as we like to say in the fitness world, "mocktails")
This cocktail is packed with lime, mint, and ginger so it will help you metabolize the fat you eat at mealtime.
This very simple combination will shock you at how effective it is at helping you keep the pounds off during the holidays. Especially if you pair it with (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse before you indulge.
It will do more than just help keep you hydrated. It will also help curb cravings, boost digestion, prevent constipation, and detox your body. It's also great the morning after with a dose of LynFit Daily Power Shot.
Drink this fat-burning cocktail, made with sparkling water, before, during, and after your meals. Better yet, drink it each time you take your supplements. It's a powerful weight loss solution that will help keep you hydrated while moving nutrients through your body, keep you feeling fuller longer, suppress your appetite, and help to significantly reduce fluid retention.
(15) Mint leaves
Fresh ginger (the size of your thumb)

Ice cubes (optional)
You don't have to starve yourself during the holidays. You just need to remember these slimming steps:
- Avoid eating too late (for optimal health, eat between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.)
- Don't overeat, and take smaller portions of food (remember, your stomach is only the size of a fist)
- Take your supplements at breakfast, again at lunch, and right before your meal (see the Gameplan below)
- When in doubt, don't. Why eat foods that you don't love? After all, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks.
- Remember the Three Bite Rule — You can taste anything for three bites. If you can't stop at three bites then don't start. This makes it easier to avoid trigger foods.
If you follow these simple rules and drink the metabolic boosting cocktail throughout the day, you'll be amazed at the results. You'll get a leaner, slimmer, more toned body fast.

Holiday-Proof Your Weight Loss
You can avoid the weight gain slump this holiday season and blast fat instead.
Most people fall off the weight loss wagon because they stop doing the things that work. For starters, they stop taking their fat loss supplements at the very time they need them the most. Supplements are the secret weapon to guard against weight gain this time of the year. And here's why.....
When you stack LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge together, you are flipping the weight gain switch off while turning the weight loss switch on. It's a natural boost that will help keep you moving, which is especially important during the holiday season because the more you sit, the more you eat.
The great news is this fat burning combo is exactly what you need this time of year, so don't leave home without this one-two punch.
Each time you take LynFit Accelerator, it's like turbocharging your metabolism. It tricks your body into thinking like a thin person, which helps you avoid overeating in the first place.
LynFit Accelerator boosts mood and energy, so you won't be reaching for the wrong foods that provide a false energy. It elevates mood, making you feel happier. And, when you feel happy, you eat less. Stress eaters take note; LynFit Accelerator doesn't just help preventatively; it also comes to the rescue should you have a bad eating day or spell — just like Thanksgiving through New Years.
The Raspberry Ketones found in LynFit Accelerator:
- Helps decrease the absorption of fat (you need this most when attending parties, so never leave home without it)
- Supports thermogenesis in brown adipose tissue, meaning it helps your body burn fat by converting white (not-so-good) fat cells into brown fat cells, which helps you burn more calories — even at rest.
- Supports appetite control and mood enhancement
- Limits enzymes that turn carbohydrates into to fat
So, instead of gaining weight while you're being festive, you'll be boosting fat loss and increasing your much-needed energy while killing your hunger and cravings.
EAT YOUR CARBS WHILE STAYING LEAN
LynFit's Fat Burning Combo is a high-quality formulation that speeds the removal of carbohydrates and sugar from the blood by speeding up their uptake, so they get burned off faster and easier. This is the secret to managing your hunger and cravings while also boosting fat loss.
LynFit Carb Edge contains white kidney bean extract and over 15 other sophisticated ingredients that help balance and lower blood sugar levels. Lowering blood sugar levels is the best way to melt off stubborn belly fat.
If you've been struggling to lose weight, the answer may lie in your blood sugar levels. I should warn you, however — blood sugar levels don't decrease easily. That's where the smart use of safe supplements comes in.
The ingredients found in both these supplements have been used for decades, and are still used in Europe to help treat elevated blood sugar levels and blood fats like cholesterol and triglycerides. They are the most effective way to lower blood sugar and have more uses than I could list here.
Who needs the LynFit Fat Burning Combo?
- Anyone who wants to lose weight and melt fat
- Anyone who lives in the real world and doesn't eat perfectly all the time
- Anyone who wants their body to react better to carbohydrates (keeps blood sugar levels low)
- Wine and alcohol drinkers
- Anyone needing more natural energy
- Anyone wanting to avoid weight gain this holiday season
- Anyone looking to maximize their nutrient absorption
- Anyone who wants to burn fat without harmful stimulants
LynFit's Fat Burning Combo was formulated with three goals in mind:
- Stop weight gain and boost weight loss
- Kill the hunger and cravings that can be experienced the day after you overeat or drink by ensuring your body is reacting to carbohydrate consumption in the most positive way possible
- Allow dieters and athletes to maintain their weight loss and lean bodies, even when introducing carbohydrates back into their diets (can you say holiday party?)
Suggested use from now through New Years, and beyond:
- A.M. — (1) LynFit Accelerator and (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- Midday Lunch — (1) LynFit Accelerator and (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- 3–4 p.m. — (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- Pre-party — Take as directed above and take an additional (1–2) LynFit Carb Edge one hour or 30 minutes before you eat (or indulge)
NOTE: If you weight 200 lbs. or more, increase the dosage to (2) LynFit Carb Edge per serving instead of (1). If you feel that's too much, simply cut back the dosage (Signs that it may be too much include light-headedness or weakness).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Are there any products you recommend to take with the LynFit Fat Burning Combo?
A: Yes. The LynFit Fat Burning Combo has been formulated to work synergistically with LynFit Cutting Edge and LynFit Complete Protein. Really, this combo can be stacked with any LynFit product for your own unique stack. The combo works all by itself if you wish to keep it simple.
Q: When is the best time to take the Fat Loss Stack?
A: LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge are best taken first thing in the morning, then again at lunch. It's super-critical that you take another LynFit Carb Edge right before you splurge, so take it before you leave the house to go to the party — where you're most likely to overeat. You can also follow the plan on the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. The most important time to take this combo is 5–15 minutes before your largest carbohydrate-laden meal.
Q: How quickly can I expect results from the LynFit Fat Burning Combo?
A: Most of our customers say they feel better right away, and they no longer fight with hunger and cravings the same day they start. If your body is used to you eating what it wants, when it wants, it may take you 24 hours to reboot those cravings. Most of the time it's psychological vs. physiological, but taking the combo helps. You'll begin to notice a leaner, lighter feeling with more energy and fewer cravings within 48 hours. You'll also notice your body is harder due to cellulite disappearing within 7–10 days. Remember, however, that it all depends on you remembering to take this combo each day, especially before cheat day meals and drinks.
Bottom line — you'll be able to navigate through this holiday season without gaining an ounce. And who knows, you might even lose weight. But you've got to remember to take them each day, especially when you're not eating clean.
So, make this holiday season one your body will never forget. You'll be leaner, stronger, and, your clothes will still fit when January rolls around. All the while enjoying some carbs without gaining fat.
Cleanse And Detox To Jump Start Your Weight Loss
I'm not going to tell you that you need to do ten minutes of push-ups for every two bite-sized Snickers® you ate, or seven minutes of running for every fun-sized KitKat's® you tasted. Or, that it takes five minutes of sit-ups to begin burning off the small bag of Sour Patch® or Starburst® you had to sample.
Halloween isn't spooky at all compared to what our little indulgences cost us. That's the scary part! Sadly, Halloween is the "I only eat a little, once in a while" that is most likely stopping you from losing weight.
What's even scarier or more horrifying is the profound impact these little tastes have on us. I'm a taster as well, so no judging here. I struggle unless I follow my plan. In fact, I have to live on the Accelerated Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan due to my fast paced life and my need to take small tastes.
These little indulgences (you know, the ones that never get written down in your journals) and these small bites we only have once in a while (who are we kidding?) wreak havoc on our blood sugar levels and cause damage to our metabolisms over time. They are almost always what keep us from reaching our goal weight. Most people don't realize how sensitive our blood sugar is.
Most people don't realize how sensitive our blood sugar is. Here's a good way to think about it — Visualize a glass full of crystal clear water. Now, add just one drop of food coloring to that glass of clear water. Yep, the entire glass becomes tinted red. Pretend that each little taste is another drop of food coloring. It's not going to take very long for that crystal clear glass of water to become clouded and completely colored because of the drops (tastes).
It becomes very evident that our little bites every once in a while have a more profound and cumulative effect than we might want to admit.
So, how do you know if your blood sugar levels are out of whack? Well, that's an easy test. If you can pinch more than an inch (and you know what I mean) your blood sugar is showing you evidence that your body is in need of a corrective type of diet; a metabolic boosting cleanse.
I see and talk to people every day who are not aware that their high blood sugar issue makes their metabolism resistant to losing weight, despite the countless diets, workouts, and doctor's visits. The reason? The underlying issues (blood sugar levels) are never addressed.
However, I've got great news for you — you have more control than you realize. But, you need to be honest with yourself about how often you eat only a little of the not-so-good-for-you foods. And you know all too well there's a vast difference between a little bit of celery vs. a little bit of that cheese that destroys waistlines and weight loss.
Before I go any further, I also want to share a little bit of tough love with you. It's the same tough love I give to myself practically every day to strengthen my willpower muscles. Print it out if you have to and put it on your refrigerator or some other place where it stares you right in the face when you feel your willpower weakening.....
THINGS WON'T GET ANY EASIER OR CHANGE UNTIL I CHANGE!
I NEED TO BECOME STRONGER THAN MY EXCUSES!
Start right now by throwing out all the trigger foods (the ones you can't stop eating) and start this metabolic boosting cleanse.
This is the only cleanse specifically designed to lower blood sugar levels, and that's why it's the only cleanse that is called metabolic boosting. Unlike juicing and juice cleanses, it lowers blood sugar levels, which is the secret to losing weight and lasting weight loss. More importantly, melting or burning off fat. After all, we don't want just to be lighter; we want to be leaner too.
If you've been struggling to lose weight and no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to lose weight because your sweet tooth and cravings are out of control, it's time to reboot your metabolism and detox your taste buds and your body in order to win this fight. Anyone can lose 1–3 pounds daily on this metabolic boosting cleanse, no matter how sluggish your metabolism is if you follow the plan. It works every time if you work it.
THE TOP TEN BENEFITS

Overcome Your Toughest Weight Loss Challenges With The Right Plan
The right combination of diet, strategic use of safe supplement stacking, and a little exercise can help you overcome your toughest weight loss challenges. Sluggish weight loss usually means a sluggish metabolism. Here's what you can do to help rev up your metabolism and boost your weight loss results.
Studies show that people who combined the right diet and exercise program lost weight, but when they combined it with the strategic use of specific supplements to safely boost metabolism, they doubled their weight loss in ½ the time.
Losing weight is hard enough, but when you add to that low energy, depression, and bloating, it can stop you from losing weight and block fat loss, unless you do these things. (NOTE: If you have gained more than 10 pounds your body is telling you it needs a boost.)
REV UP WITH METABOLIC EXERCISE
We all need to exercise, but if your metabolism is sluggish, you need to exercise every day. Weight training in a metabolic fashion helps to tighten, tone, and build lean muscle tissue, which helps boost metabolism and reshape your body better than any other form of exercise. Metabolic exercise is also the best way to strengthen your posture and bones.
Metabolic exercise should be performed three (3) times for 30 minutes for each workout. I suggest doing them at home for the best results due to form focus and the consistency of home workouts.
Add cardiovascular exercise daily such as walking, biking, or rowing. In all honesty, I suggest walking because anyone can do it anywhere—no gym needed, equals no excuse workouts. Don't forget; your body require 10,000 steps every day. Are you getting in your steps?
CHOOSE PROTEIN, AVOID CARBS (UNLESS THEY ARE GREEN)
You should be eating 4–5 meals spaced throughout the day, but your food choices dictate the speed of your metabolism. A higher protein diet, thermogenic, helps keep your metabolism running strong, so you burn more calories all day. If your weight loss is stalled, you may need to change the type of protein you're eating.
That's where the LynFit Complete Protein Shake comes in. Drinking one (1) shake for breakfast can boost your metabolism 25 percent and block stress hormones that slow weight loss. If you prefer to chew your protein, LynFit Lean Bars are made with the same highest grade of pure whey protein as the Protein Shake.
You should also swap out your chicken for fish, and remember, the lighter and whiter the fish, the better for your metabolism.
HYDRATE, BUT LIMIT CAFFEINE BOOST
Research shows that drinking water can boost your metabolism by as much as 30 percent. Your body needs at least 10 cups of water daily. Avoid getting too much caffeine, which can dehydrate you.
Delicious, thirst-quenching hydrating tricks can be found in the Wall Street Journal Best-Seller, The Metabolism Solution.
STACK YOUR SUPPLEMENTS FOR MAXIMUM RESULTS
There have been studies suggesting a connection between hypothyroidism and vitamin deficiency. For instance, research published in 2013 in the International Journal of Health Sciences found that people with hypothyroidism were deficient in Vitamin D and Iodine, to name a few.
The following supplement stack can be added to other LynFit supplements and is safe to use if you're on thyroid medication.
- Take one (1) dropper-full of LynFit Thryo-Boost three (3) times daily. One (1) in the morning within 30 minutes of waking, and again at mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
- Take one (1) LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost at breakfast and another at lunch.
If you're using the LynFit Fat Burning Combo, you can add the LynFit Thyro-Boost and Vitamin D3 Boost to it safely.
LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Not getting enough sleep can change your metabolism and wreak havoc with cortisol (stress hormones ) levels, which in turn, can cause fat to be stored in your midsection and stop you from losing weight.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends that most adults get 7–9 hours of sleep nightly. LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin makes that easy while helping to melt fat off your midsection while boosting health.
For the best results, take one (1) LynFit Lean Sleep an hour before bedtime or by 9 p.m. nightly. I like to stack my LynFit Lean Sleep with one (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3 for maximum metabolic boost. I promise it will be the best sleep you've ever had, complete with awesome dreams.
This stack also helps boost healing and repair, so you wake up less achy and ready to live your life.

Fun Fitness Challenge, Just In Time For Halloween!
I was asked by a social media follower recently what I would propose when it comes to ending the health care crisis in America. What would my health care initiative be?
Let's take a closer look at what a health care initiative truly is. A health initiative is any plan or program intended to improve our health care system and organization, based on the principle that superior health care and its systems could build healthier communities.
This is the problem with our country — we either live in denial, or no one wants to be honest about the big issues. We all overeat, and we don’t move enough. We don’t even get up to change the television channel or answer the phone anymore. We tend to overcomplicate things, making them practically impossible to "do the do," if you know what I mean.
I for one get overwhelmed, which incapacitates me and stops me from making the changes needed. My solution to the health care crisis in America is very simple yet highly effective. It works 100 percent of the time when used. I’ve learned to keep it very simple, and that’s exactly why this plan is so effective.
Are you ready for my healthcare initiative? Here it is — Prevention is the cure!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a Pilates Princess or King of CrossFit, our bodies are only as healthy and strong as our weakest issue. Everybody—translation, every person living on this planet, needs to be able to do these things to stay healthy and to try to keep ourselves out of nursing homes. Nursing home care is one of the most expensive health care costs we will face as we begin to live longer. Unlike our politicians, none of us can afford to skip over these facts.
For instance, if you’re not flexible, you will most likely end up getting hurt because of your inflexibility. Alternatively, if you’re like Gumby, but lack adequate strength in all of the right places, you may be slumped over and frail which is a dangerous liability.
As fitness trainers, the first thing we do is assess what our client’s current fitness levels are, regardless of their goal. This is where most people take the wrong turn when it comes to getting fit. We all want to work on what we are already good at, but that’s not what needs the TLC. It’s the weakness that we need to address to prevent injuries and health issues from popping up and taking us off of our game.
Interestingly, we are all born with these gifts, but we lose these fitness levels over time due to not using or misusing them. That’s why kids love this fit test—because most kids can naturally do all of them. As we age, we lose this ability unless we pay close attention to doing the right things, which is address the most important issues.
Here are the Top Five exercises that everybody should be able to do. They tell the true story about your health and give away your real fitness levels, which determine the state of your health. Believe it or not, your body is naturally designed to do each of these moves. Try them, and let's see just how functionally fit you really are (Caution: Be very careful if you haven’t done these in a while. They aren’t as easy as they look. It may take time to get back into proper physical condition before you’re able to do it, but it’s a good test of how productive your current fitness program is).
- Bend over and touch your toes. You should be able to place your palms flat on the floor without bending your knees, or at least touch your fingertips to the floor.
What does this prevent? Bad achy backs and knees and prevents strains and sprains. This move tells you how flexible your hamstrings, hips and low back are, as well as the health of your spine.
- Sit down on the floor without using hands and get back up without using your hands or crossing your legs. I even struggle with this if I'm not warmed up, but I never stop trying. The lack of being able to get off the toilet is the #1 reason most people end up in nursing homes, and I’m not going there! Are you? This tells us not only how strong you are but also how flexible. It takes both strength and flexibility to be able to do this.
What does this prevent? Bad back and knees, keeping you fit enough to care for yourself without home health care. Less falls that fracture bones and fewer wheelchairs, canes or walkers.
- Push yourself up off the floor; aka The Perfect Push Up, while keeping your body straight and stiff.
What does this prevent? A strong core is the best prevention for bad backs and necks.
- Sit-up from lying position (this is old school, but you need to do this to get up every day). If your muscles aren’t strong enough you’ll wind up using the wrong muscles, and that’s how you'll hurt yourself. Yes, you really can get hurt sitting up in bed. People hurt their necks all the time doing this. Sad, but true.
What does this prevent? The sit-up tells you how strong your core is. Having a strong core prevents belly bulge, bad backs, necks, and prevents falls. Not to mention, a strong core looks great.
- Lying straight leg flexibility test. When you raise your leg it should be straight and at a perfect 90-degree angle (without helping it to get it there—that’s cheating).
What does this prevent? If you can’t get your leg straight at 90 degrees, it tells how inflexible you really are. This is simple science, and the solution is easy. It doesn’t require you to take up yoga for hours every day. (Try the LynFit Lazy Man's Yoga as shown in The Metabolism Solution)
*Note: If you can’t do this, and you’re wondering why you ache all the time and your back or hip problems are not being resolved with physical therapy, chiropractic or cortisone shots.....you just heard your solution. You need to do this simple stretch daily, as often as it takes until you can. If you don’t, your doomed for back, knee and hip troubles, if you don’t have them already.
Be sure to drink plenty of water, as being dehydrated also plays a role in your flexibility (you can't knead dry dough). Remember to warm up a bit beforehand (a warm shower can do this or walk around for a bit until you feel warmed up).
If your aches and pains are past a 2½ on a pain scale of 1–5, you may want to consider taking the following supplements to help ease inflammation. Inflammation is most likely causing your issues to escalate.
Pain depletes your body of what it needs, making pain worse and making supplementing even more important than any other time. Whether you're sore from life or you’ve been injured, the smart use of safe supplements is not only good for quick pain relief; it’s also the best way to prevent pain from happening in the first place.
Make sure you have these natural remedies on hand so you can take them as a preventative daily:
LynFit Pure Omega 3: Take (1) capsule in the a.m. upon waking and another at night before you got to bed.
LynFit Lean Sleep: Take (1) tablet at 9 p.m. along with your LynFit Pure Omega 3. Sleep is where your body recovers. Sometimes you will ache because you aren’t healing, making it even more important to sleep soundly.
LynFit Lean Sleep is made from high-quality ingredients, so you’re getting the best melatonin money can buy. Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant that helps heal and repair damaged joints.
LynFit Daily Power Shot: Take (1) shot daily mid-morning, or as soon as you wake up. LynFit Daily Power Shot nourishes and protects your body and feeds the joints while providing the energy needed to live your life.
- And when all else fails, pull out the big guns—LynFit Recovery Agent. LynFit Recovery Agent is just that—an agent that speeds recovery. It contains elevated amounts of the most critical nutrients your body needs, in the purest form and highest quality. From Glucosamine and Glutamine to Turmeric, to name a few. LynFit Recovery Agent helps speed healing and repair while easing pain the same day you start taking it. Your pain can’t stop you anymore!
If you didn’t ace this test, your body is screaming for help. Start practicing by doing these fit test moves. Acing this is the best prevention when it comes to staying healthy and living longer, which always translates into happier lives.
Take this test regardless of how fit you are, and remember; it’s always our weakest link that takes us out of the game of life. For more info see the Wall Street Journal Best-Seller, The Metabolism Solution.
Remember, you didn't lose your fitness overnight. Getting it back will take time. Be patient with yourself.
Stay tuned next week for the exercise program that will help get you back on track so you'll be able to do these moves with ease.Make sure to visit @LisaLynnFitness on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, where I share videos, tips, and active lifestyle secrets.
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!
If you're serious about transforming your body and your life, focus on these three steps and begin to put them into practice. And remember, nothing will change until you do!
We would love to hear your story. What will you be working on to transform your body and your life?
