The Wedding Day Shape-Up Challenge — Not Just For Brides

 

Get in shape fast before any special occasion coming up with this Shape-Up Challenge.

So, it just hit you that you have very little time left to get in shape before the wedding or special occasion. You're not alone. Don't worry, there are tricks that can help you lose weight and get in shape when the calendar is not on your side.

In fact, brides are the most motivated when it comes to getting in shape and shedding excess body fat. This shape-up challenge isn't just for brides, however. It's for anyone who wants to blast fat and get into shape fast. Anyone can use these simple tricks to reach their goals. If losing weight and getting in shape fell to the bottom of your priority list, this plan is for you.

Research shows that a sense of urgency is the best motivator. But first, it’s important to believe that you can lose 1 pound per day and see physical changes in the first week. To accomplish this, you’ll have to be disciplined and follow the suggested regimen at least 80 percent of the time.

You said you wanted fast results, right? Here's the plan, in three simple steps. The Wedding Day Shape up Challenge: Say "I do" to the following advanced techniques for 7, 14, 21 days, or as long as you need.

  1. Blast fat fast by switching to metabolic workouts first thing in the morning on an empty stomach
    Metabolic workouts get you into tip-top shape three times faster than any other workout. They boost your metabolism, so you burn calories all day long. 

    Do (3) 30-minute metabolic workouts at home every week. Walk or save your Pilates and yoga for active rest in between metabolic workouts.

    THINSPIRATION: 80 percent of your weight loss is based on what you eat. The other 20 percent comes from exercise.

  2. Boost your metabolism 25 percent and replace lost nutrients after your workout by drinking a metabolism boosting Whey Protein Shake
    Not just any protein shake will do when you’re trying to tone up, which means to burn off excess fat while firming and tightening without bulk. Only metabolic boosting shakes will recalibrate your appetite and kill cravings, making it easier to stick to your plan. All this while providing the exact amount of protein your body needs without excess calories, sugar or carbs that can bulk you up and stop fat loss. 

    *Note: High-quality whey also helps boost immunity and block cortisol (stress hormone) levels from rising, which is critical when you’re under stress, making it easier to lose belly fat.

  3. Eat more “thermogenic” foods and fewer grains and fats
    This is the simplest way to lose weight, burn fat fast, and boost immunity so you look radiant on your big day. I’ve seen clients drop a pound per day and lose body fat (their abs even started to show) by eating cleaner foods such as; broccoli, cauliflower, egg whites, complete whey protein, white fish, and of course, drinking plenty of water. These are super foods that fill you up quickly. They provide a lot of nutrients that your body needs now more than ever. 

I recommend a minimum of three to four 30-minute sessions of cardio per week, and (3) 30-minute metabolic boosting workouts. These can be adjusted according to your goals. Some may need to kick your cardio up to five or six times per week. Cardio can be anything from going for a walk or cycling. In fact, that is much easier on your joints and makes you less prone to injuries.

If you're serious about being a buffed bride and need help, feel free to contact me. I’m happy to answer your questions.

Your Weight Problem May Be The Government's Fault

Every day I have people crying out to me in despair saying, “I have always been able to eat this food without gaining weight and now when I eat it I gain 5 pounds immediately." Or “I track everything I eat in XYZ app and yet I still can’t lose belly fat." Trying to find the reasons for this is a little bit harder than it used to be. You may think you’re eating the right way, but you aren’t. It’s getting harder to teach people the “why’s” behind all these dilemmas, and that’s because you have to unlearn pretty much what you’ve been taught about food portions and labels. I had to forget everything I had learned and start fresh. Only then did I begin to lose weight in spite of my slow metabolism.

Because there is so much confusion over what a correct serving size is there is no standard reference point for you to determine what the appropriate amount of food to eat is. Let alone what you should be eating in the first place. Package labels differ so much from brand to brand that you cannot assume that the same amount of low-fat potato chips, say 15 chips per serving, doesn’t change from one brand to the next. Guess what? It does. 

You might think that in this day and age labeling and servings would be designed by a more scientific approach. I always assumed that serving sizes are calculated to goals. So if you are trying to lose weight, you should eat this certain amount, but if you are attempting to gain or maintain it would be a different amount. Makes perfect sense that serving sizes should be different when you’re a 6-foot tall 30-year-old man and a 4-foot 9-inch woman who is 55. But how is it that growing children, teens, and people who are active are told to use the same serving sizes that you are when trying to lose weight and shrink your waistline? Have you ever thought of it this way? Shouldn’t serving sizes be a little bit different if you are tall or short or whether you have lots of muscle or very little muscle? Ideally, shouldn’t serving sizes factor in the rate you burn calories, take into account your metabolism’s speed?

I speak from my personal experience and the experiences of all the people I have helped over the years. Every time I tried to follow the food pyramid recommendations put forth by the U.S. government— and, by the way, I was meticulous about serving sizes—I still gained weight. My metabolism is so slow that if I even look at ½ a serving of pasta I gain 5 pounds, yet my 6-foot tall and fairly active husband skips pasta at one meal and loses 10 pounds. (Okay, so that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but it sure feels like it.) I’m hoping this gets you thinking. You have to be your own detective when it comes to losing weight.

Serving guidelines cannot serve as gospel, but merely as a rough gauge. The scale will show you every time if you’re on the right track. If the scale isn’t moving, you’re still eating too much or eating the wrong foods for your metabolism. It’s often a food you just can’t let go of (a little cream in the coffee, perhaps?) but need to. I urge you to follow my plan. It is guaranteed to work every time. Don’t stop following these principals until you have lost all that fat you have hated for years. Your weight gain (or lack of weight loss) is not all your fault. Serving sizes (food choices, too) are mostly to blame.

Take away—follow the metabolic boosting plan and you're guaranteed to lose 1 pound a day. If you're not, you're eating too much. It's that simple. It works when you work it!

 

Metabolic Mistakes That Stop Weight Loss

 

 Click on the video above to watch Lisa on "CT Style" discussing How to Lose Weight and Keep it Off

When it comes to losing weight most of us focus on the big things, but it's the little things that usually keep us from losing weight. Those little things we all do that seem so unimportant that we don’t even write them in our journals.

What you don’t know can hurt your weight loss. In fact, it may even stop you from losing weight; especially if you're female, over 35 years old, diabetic, or have a thyroid condition (all apply). Don't shoot the messenger. I don't make the rules and I certainly still struggle with some of these myself. If you’re not losing weight, listen up, these are for you.

Here are the Top 5 Metabolic Mistakes I see on food journals every day that stop weight loss dead in its tracks:

Metabolic Mistake #1: You Think Juicing Is Good For You

While juicing does supply some nutrients your body doesn't know the difference between sugar that came from juicing or candy. It still elevates blood sugar levels which stop fat loss and slow weight loss.

Do this instead: Drink a Complete Whey Protein Shake. You’ll boost your metabolism 25%, block cortisol which helps melt belly fat, and you'll be providing your body with nutrients it needs to stay healthy, allowing you to lose 1 pound per day. Drinking a Complete Protein Shake is fast, easy and delicious. All you have to do is drink. Don't add fruit.

Metabolic Mistake #2: When It Comes To Weight Loss You Think All Snack Bars Are Created Equal

Not! In fact, snack bars that cost .50 cents are loaded with nothing but sugar. They are expensive cookies in my book. You know the drill when it comes to sugar and weight loss, the less sugar you eat the easier it is to lose weight.

Do this instead: Replace your current protein or snack bar with a Lean Bar and you'll boost your metabolism 25%. Lean Bars are made with the same high quality protein that the Complete Protein Shake is made with. You'll lose weight faster and melt belly fat. You’ll also be saving calories, carbs, and fat while adding 10 grams of fiber to your diet. That's always good for weight loss. LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar on the market that uses high quality protein. That’s what’s best for weight loss.

Metabolic Mistake #3: You Eat Too Much Chicken And Salmon

When it comes to weight loss not all proteins are created equal. Chicken and salmon both have more fat than you realize which adds calories and slows weight loss. It stops belly fat from melting off. We tend to forget to weigh and measure our proteins and this slows our weight loss. Always stick to 3 ounce servings.

Do this instead: Eat more white fish and less chicken and salmon. Remember, the lighter and whiter the fish the better for your metabolism and the faster and easier it will be for you to lose weight and melt belly fat. If your weight is stuck try eating more white fish and less chicken.

Metabolic Mistake #4: You Think Fruit Is Good For Weight Loss

Fruit does have some nutritional value but it also spikes blood sugar the same way juice does. Most of us don't know what a serving size of fruit is. If your weight loss is stuck and you have belly fat you want to melt off eat less fruit, or at least stick to a serving size, which is ½ a cup.

Do this instead: Swap your fruit for green veggies such as celery, or anything green for that matter, and you'll lose weight faster and feel fuller longer. Vegetables don’t cause blood sugar spikes the way fruit does so you'll feel fuller and eat less. Just make sure you're not dipping it into calorie loaded hummus or high calorie dip. Look for zero calorie dips or salad dressings instead if you’re trying to melt belly fat.

Metabolic Mistake #5: You think All Exercise Is Created Equal When It Comes To Losing Weight

While all exercise beats the couch, it's not all great for weight loss. Movement burns calories but exercises like zumba counts as cardiovascular exercise. Yoga which is great for stress relief and stretching and last but not least, Cross Fit, which can be too intense and not only stop weight loss but can cause weight gain unless you're under 30 and live stress free. All exercise is stress to your body but none of these are "the best" when it comes to losing weight and burning excess fat; especially around the hips, butt and thighs.

Do this instead: Metabolic boosting workouts are the very best when it comes to tightening, firming and reshaping your body. Unlike other forms of exercise, they are specifically geared for weight loss. You’ll see results within one week and they take only 30 minutes to complete. Just three metabolic boosting workouts a week and you’ll be boosting your metabolism making it easier for you to lose weight and melt fat. If you’re not seeing results stop what you're currently doing in the gym and try metabolic boosting workouts for 2 weeks. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your body and how fast you lose weight. Less time plus faster weight loss who doesn't want that?

For more information about these and other metabolic solutions please refer to my book, "The Metabolism Solution".

If you keep doing what you've always done you'll get what you've always got. Change requires you to change. So start now, YOUR SOMEDAY IS TODAY. DON'T WAIT ONE MORE SECOND!

What You Can Do Right Now To Lose Weight

On my blogs and in my newsletters I post about the most effective ways to lose 1 pound a day, even with a slow/hypothyroid metabolism. I provide delicious recipes and supplement ideas to help you overcome the cravings and lack of energy from time to time that we all struggle with. This year, due to some horrifically cold weather and lots of snow, people seem to be struggling more than ever.

I don't know about you, but I struggle much more when it's cold outside. The only thing I want to do is eat and sleep. That being said, I still want to fit into my clothes when spring finally rolls around. I would like to tell you about 4 things I never stop doing no matter how much I may want to. They keep my metabolism running fast, making it harder to gain weight while making it easier to lose.

  1. Get up and move every day, no excuses. I walk for 60 minutes daily - period. It's the only way I nail the 10,000 steps that our body requires. This weather is the perfect example why I suggest everyone own a treadmill and not rely on getting to a gym or going outside.

  2. Drink my shake after my 60 minute walk. I hate my Protein Shake cold so I make it the night before and keep it in the refrigerator, allowing me more time to sleep in. I use a small milk frother to make it fluffy and delicious. Just like those fattening, expensive beverages that we all like from places like Starbucks. If I crave milk or cream in my coffee I use a little of the pre-made shake in my coffee instead. 

  3. I also struggle with dinner this time of year because I crave comfort food. Slimming salads are not appealing so I reach for chicken soup for my metabolism or a sauteed salad to satisfy my cravings and fill me up. This type of eating allows me to stay on course while eating as much as I want without feeling guilty. You can find all the recipes you would ever need in my book, The Metabolism Solution.

  4. I never stop taking my supplements. If I did, my cravings would win and I would struggle to function or even get out of bed for that matter. Every LynFit supplement was created to solve a real-life problem. I battled with making sure to keep the quality high so you can actually feel the difference while being 100% safe.

    One of the most popular questions I get every day is, "what do you take and how, when, how much?".  Here is my current routine. This is a real-time, real-life look into my life. Warts and all. I pray that this helps you feel better fast.

    4:30am: Thyroid medicine

    4:45am: Walk at least 60 minutes on the treadmill

    5:45am: Melt-fat mochaccino shake. I never add any type of milk, fruit or anything that adds calories. I battle with weight enough so I never add additional calories.
    (1) LynFit Accelerator, (1) LynFit Cutting Edge, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit D3-Boost

    Off to see clients......

    9:00am: (1) LynFit Daily Power Shot pre-workout

    9:15am: Metabolic boosting workout group. I do the metabolic workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday religiously because it's only 30 minutes and I like the way it tightens, tones and reshapes my body fast without bulking. I also need the metabolic boost it provides compared to all the other workouts. You can learn more about the metabolic workouts HERE.

    10:00am: My brunch/lunch. (1) LynFit Chocolate Lean Bar with hot tea. Yes, I should have a shake but I have a Lean Bar instead unless I've been really bad with my eating.

    1:00pm: Green apple and small (kid's size) fat free, sugar free yogurt. This is my indulgence.
    (1) LynFit D3-Boost, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit Carb Edge (I'll take 2 Carb Edge if the cravings are really bad).

    If I'm on the road and afraid I'll forget, or I'm struggling with food cravings or low energy/depressed, I'll take the Carb Edge at 10:00am with my brunch/lunch.

    I focus on work, not food, by staying super busy. If I need a mental work break I'll work on my projects or charities.

    3:00pm: Stretch to relieve physical and mental stress while overseeing my kids' homework.

    6:00pm: (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse (3 - if hormones affect my regularity). I'll have a huge serving of Ciambotta on a bed of lettuce or sauteed salad with shrimp or tilapia. Some nights I will skip the protein at dinner to avoid chicken, which slows/stops my weight loss and causes my body to gain weight fast.

    Here's the kicker; night is the worst time for me, no matter how much I eat. So I leave a little wiggle room for myself all day by keeping my food clean and staying busy. Learn more about Metabolism Mind Games in "The Metabolism Solution".

    7:30pm: After dinner (yes, I know my meals aren't spaced 3 hours apart - I live in the real world too) I have a small tea cup that I put ¼-½ cup of water in with (1) scoop of Complete Protein Shake. I eat it with a spoon like cake batter that we all love - chunks and all. I love licking the spoon and this satisfies my insatiable sweet tooth. If the weather is nice I'll go walk the dogs instead. This helps me lose the 5 pounds I inevitably gain every winter.

    9:00pm: By 9:00pm I'm fighting to stay awake so I take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep and dive under the covers with my dogs.

I'm all about total transparency and letting you see how human I am. I'm no different than you. The most important thing I can teach you is that when you fall off; and you will, learn how to get up fast and brush yourself off, forgive yourself, and start over at your next meal. I hope this helps you battle your way through the remaining winter days.

Tomorrow is a new day and provides a new start. Just don't wait until a few days from now. Do.......it.......now. Your someday is today!

No Excuses, Stay Strong!

Slim Down Post-Super Bowl: The Morning After Diet

 

"Prepare to Overeat". Yes, I said "Prepare to Overeat". You cannot live life in a bubble so there will be times when you will have to face the reality of overeating. For many of you, this past weekend was a prime example.

Did you know that this past Sunday was the #2 biggest eating day of the year? According to recent statistics, Super Bowl and non-Super Bowl watchers alike consumed 1,200 calories in snacks alone this past Sunday. Not only that, drinkers clogged up their liver with excessive consumption of alcohol. The worst part - the foods we chose to consume; pizza, avocados, chips, chicken wings, soda and beer, are the worst when it comes to losing weight.

Super Bowl Sunday is just one of many examples we could use. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, job parties, holidays - there's just too many to name all of them. Did you know that the mental struggle of trying to figure out what you can and cannot do at these "life events" can be just as traumatic as the overeating itself? That's why you need to go ahead and enjoy this life that God provided for you, but do it in such a way that recovery from these overeating events is guaranteed and any weight gain is minimal.

Here are 3 Super Survivor Tricks to stop weight gain before it happens when you overeat.

THE NIGHT BEFORE THE EVENT: WEIGHT LOSS BOOST

Drink a tall glass of water to help your body detox and pop (1) LynFit Lean Sleep with melatonin (5mg) to help offset the oxidative stress caused by over indulging and boost calorie burn. 

Melatonin is an important brown fat regulator. Brown fat burns calories which is exactly what we need after a bad day of eating and drinking.

THE DAY AFTER THE EVENT: EAT THERMOGENICALLY

This can be as simple as drinking a clean whey LynFit Protein Shake to turn up the heat; boosting your metabolism and re-calibrating your appetite, which turns off cravings so your blood sugar level goes back to normal. Do not add juice or milk. Mix with ½ cup of berries for more antioxidant boosting power to help ease a morning after headache.

Bonus Boost: Open (1) capsule of LynFit Carb Edge and add it directly to your protein shake for faster absorption and better results. Carb Edge will help get those blood sugar levels back on track. And that hangover you're feeling - it's from excessive carbs and alcohol consumption which turns to sugar in our bodies when broken down. You can also take (1-2) Carb Edge before you cheat to block the absorption of unwanted carbs without nasty side effects. 

Eating more sugar and carbs prolongs things so balancing blood sugar is the secret. For extra prevention you can take (1) Carb Edge before you start eating. It contains white kidney bean extract that helps prevent carbs from being absorbed so you can eat more at your event but absorb less carbs. Not that I'm suggesting that you eat more, but realizing that you more than likely will.

AFTER THE EVENT: DON'T EAT IN BETWEEN MEALS - DRINK WATER INSTEAD

Drink water or tea instead to fuel your slow, damaged metabolism. If you really overdid it at your event you can have a green apple to help regulate your blood sugar levels, but that's it. Remember, you probably ate enough at your event to last a week so you won't starve.

Think About It:

    • It takes roughly 3 hours of walking for the average person to burn off 12 calories
    • Each beer sets you back 150 calories and takes 1 hour to clear your system
    • 1 chip dunked into dip is 80 calories
    • 6 wings = 990 calories
    • 2 handfuls of Cheetos™ takes 1 hour of intense running to burn off
    • 3 sodas = 57 minutes of running to burn off
    • 3 beers = 3 hours of running to burn off

Bottom line, when you overeat - and you will, take measures beforehand to plan and prepare your body as much as possible. Then in the days following, get right back on the plan and take the extra steps outlined above to help your body recover as quickly as possible.

Fasting For Spiritual Renewal - Not Just For Weight Loss

Fasting
Wanna know the REAL LynFit difference? Unlike other weight loss programs, we deal with weight loss "from the inside out". That's where the biggest changes need to be made, and where the root of many problems are. Dealing with weight loss in this manner is the best for lasting weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try to focus on good and positive things all you can see is the bad. Seeing nothing but bad eventually leads us to focusing on self-centeredness, unable to hear our own inner voice. Fasting is more than just not eating meat on Fridays. Fasting is a way to leave behind that physical pain, those bad thoughts, that self-centeredness. Fasting removes our dependency from all things that block our sensitivity to the spiritual.

I want to take you on a little journey to give you a glimpse into my "why" when it comes to living a Leaner Lifestyle, even after I reached my goal weight. For me, and I'm guessing there are many others of you who would agree, reaching that goal weight was just the beginning. Weight loss was the physical renewal that was visible to everyone. The REAL renewal was what took place on the inside. Those deepest darkest places that no one else could see. That renewal was a spiritual renewal. No, not a religious renewal that was tied to a certain set of doctrinal beliefs or a religious denomination. Rather a true deep-rooted spiritual renewal that was directly tied to my personal relationship with a very personal God. A relationship that allows me to live a life of clean eating to honor my body rather than junking it up.

The Metabolic Boosting: Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan (found in "The Metabolism Solution") fits perfectly with fasting lifestyles, making it easier to stick to your fast regardless of your religion. This in turn allows you to concentrate on the reason why you're fasting in the first place, keeping your body and mind healthy so you can focus on the more important things in life - renewing your spirit and not just focusing on your body.

For me, fasting brings deeper meaning to my life and helps me to hear God's voice more clearly, allowing me to live according to His will. In short, it brings clarity to my life. At my church, Northeast Community Church, we fast together as a community and as individuals. I would love for you to join with me this week spending time reading, reflecting and praying using this Daily Spiritual Renewal Guide (You may print the guide out directly from the link. Special thanks to Northeast Community Church for content).

Make sure you break your fast in as clean a way as possible by referring to the clean recipe in the Renewal Guide for the last day. Your system will have been purified and your spirit renewed. Let's not "junk" it right back up with heavy eating to only weigh you right back down again.

I am thrilled that you're taking this journey of spiritual renewal with me. I can't wait to hear your stories of how God worked in and through your life. I challenge all of us to dig deep and lose that excess baggage we've been carrying around. And not just of the unwanted physical weight variety.

For more information about fasting and weight loss refer to "The Metabolism Solution: God and Your Bod".

Note: During a time of fasting it's a good idea to decrease your workouts

Naturally Boost Your Metabolism To Jump Start Your Weight Loss

Many of you emailed me after watching Janine's before and after story on Better TV asking me how you can naturally boost your metabolism to jump start your weight loss. So, for those who have not yet seen it, I wanted to show you that segment that inspired thousands of people to make the life changing decision to lose weight for good. Congratulations to all of you who have already lost 20 or more pounds since seeing the segment and if you need this type help please contact me to get your weight loss jump started.

If you've ever felt like trying to lose weight is just more difficult for you than for other people, or you've been gaining and losing weight your whole life and haven't successfully kept if off, then this if for you. I'm going to teach you how to naturally boost your metabolism to jump start your weight loss so you can safely lose those pounds.

How do you know if you need to be aggressive when it comes to boosting your metabolism?

      • Have you been 15-20 pounds or more overweight for more than 5 years?
      • Are you more than 40 years old?
      • Do you struggle with hypothyroid or thyroid conditions that affect your weight?
      • Are you diabetic or pre-diabetic?
      • Do you eat healthy and exercise regularly yet still can't lose weight?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions it may take an aggressive approach to get your body to lose weight. Here is the plan that helped Janine lose weight. She was 85 pounds overweight and we needed to boost her metabolism aggressively to jump start her weight loss. Doing so allowed her to lose 1 pound a day. Seeing those immediate results made it easier for her to stick to her plan.

STEP ONE: METABOLISM MAKEOVER

Follow the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse to quickly recalibrate your appetite, which will also switch your cravings to "off". This "heat up" of your metabolism will also block cortisol levels which helps melt belly fat. This is called thermogenic eating and is described in detail in "The Metabolism Solution".

Further boost your metabolism by having a Whey Complete Protein Shake EXACTLY 12 hours after your last meal. This will not only boost your metabolism 25% by feeding muscle which burns more calories but also starve the fat so it leaves.

For 30% faster results, empty the contents of the LynFit Accelerator capsule into your Protein Shake. It contains an ingredient that blunts the hunger signal because it makes you feel full.

NOTE: When it comes to supplements it's not only the ingredients that matters, it's also the quality of the ingredients. The higher the ingredient quality the more effective if will work and you'll see results faster. The right supplement with the highest quality ingredients will make losing weight easier. In order to guarantee these results you must use LynFit products. While I'm not saying that LynFit supplements are the only ones that will work, I can only speak to the quality of my products and their ingredients. I know many people who have tried inferior products with inferior quality and they did not see results.

STEP TWO: BURN THE FAT


Just because we've heated up your metabolism and you're now eating thermogenically doesn't mean your body is automatically going to burn fat. To start the fat burning, replace your mid-morning snack with tea and (1) LynFit Cutting Edge. Quite honestly, most of us aren't even hungry at that time; we're just programmed to eat. The Cutting Edge has an ingredient, L-Carnitine that lures fat into the cell and persuades your body to burn it as fuel. So as your metabolism is beginning to take a nose dive 3 hours from Step #1, we've now spurted it back up again.

STEP THREE: RESHAPE YOUR BODY

Just because you lose weight doesn't mean you're going to look fit. I'm sure you've seen people who have lost a lot of weight and they have really just become a smaller version of their original self. That's why we need to also reshape your body.

Curb your munch hour cravings by munching on a green apple and taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge every afternoon. Why a green apple? It's lower in sugar while at the same time shutting off your sweet craving by satisfying it without wanting more. The Carb Edge helps lower and balance blood sugar levels, which cause us to crave, while enhancing thyroid function. It also contains Forskolin which helps your body burn more fat as fuel.

You'll notice that I haven't said anything about exercise. For Janine, I only had her walk and stretch because she was in so much pain and I wanted her to know that when her food was on track or clean enough she could still lose weight without exercise. That being said, you can and should, be doing the metabolic boosting exercises only while trying to lose weight, as other forms of exercise can interfere with your weight loss.

Are you ready to Lose 1 Pound Per Day?

The 5 "Myth"Conceptions Of Weight Loss

Not losing weight no matter how hard you try? It could be that it's not even your fault. Why? Because most of what we are taught about weight loss is all wrong - nothing but lies and myths that stop us from losing weight and lead us to nothing but discouragement - "Myth"Conceptions. Learning the truth about weight loss may be just what you need to start losing weight today.

When you hear something enough, you actually start to believe it. Even if there is a voice inside your head that says otherwise. The biggest tip-off is that you're not losing weight despite the countless hours you're spending killing yourself in the gym. I lost weight immediately (40 pounds) and you can too once these secrets to boost your metabolism are learned. I had to forget everything I had learned previously and begin to do things differently. Guess what happened? I lost one pound every day until I hit my target weight for my body. And you can too!

With the holidays here it's even more important that we understand what these myths are and why we shouldn't believe them.


#1: Rapid Weight Loss Is Bad - WRONG!

Rapid weight loss (rapid results) is always the best way to get people to stick to the program. That doesn't mean you should starve yourself or go on a crash diet however. Those cause nutritional deficiencies that make us cranky. "The Metabolism Solution" teaches which proteins are best for weight loss as well as the exact amount your body needs to stay healthy, and lose weight. It also shows you the specific vegetables that are thermogenic, causing the body to go into metabolic boosting mode, burning more calories - even while sleeping.

You'll not only lose weight fast, you'll be healthier. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels will decrease quickly and if you suffer from aches and pains you'll feel better fast. This "New Way to Lose Weight" isn't just good for weight loss; it's also the healthiest way to live.

#2: Government Serving Sizes Are Accurate - WRONG!

Anyone can figure out that a 6ft male needs more calories that a 5ft female, so why are we told to eat the same amount? Turns out that serving sizes are universal and that is causing us to gain weight - fast. If you're not losing weight you're eating too much. It's that simple. Try eating ½ of what you usually eat and you'll see the scale drop fast. This is proof that fast weight loss is actually a good thing. It's sold evidence that you're doing things right. Bottom line - when we eat the right amount we lose quickly. When we are off-track or eating the wrong things we don't lose weight.

#3: More Exercise Means More Weight Loss - WRONG!

Just like you can overdo it by eating too much, you can also go overboard with exercise. In fact, too much of the wrong kind of exercise can stop weight loss dead in its tracks. The physical stress it inflicts on our bodies cause our cortisol (aka, fat storing hormone) levels to rise, making that stubborn muffin top even harder to lose.

90% of weight loss is based on diet and exercise makes up the last 10%. That being said, you cannot exercise away a bad diet. No bargaining. Just because you exercised doesn't mean you get to eat more (unless you're a male under 2 years old). When your diet is dialed in you don't have to live in the gym.

#4: High Fat, Low Carb Is Good For Weight Loss - WRONG!

You're not walking around with hairy palms so stop following those "Cave Man" diets. If you are, I'd bet you're gaining weight instead of losing it. To make matters worse, your cholesterol level is probably rising higher that the national deficit!

While you do need fat in your diet, the kind you consume can make or break your weight loss. Some fats burn easier as fuel compared to others. Bad fats, like trans fats, raise cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease. Not to mention, they make your pants too tight! The saturated fats found in red meat, butter, cheese and peanut butter won't help you lose that muffin top. But a good fat, like Omega 3 found in salmon, will.

The best way to take Omega 3 is through supplementation. I always suggest supplements when you're trying to boost your metabolism because you get a metered dose versus a guesstimation. You need to ensure your body gets exactly the amount it needs - no more, no less - in order to burn off body fat. Omega 3's are also great for pain, inflammation and even easing depression.

#5: All Supplements Are Created Equal - WRONG!

This is the perfect example of "you get what you pay for". You can't supplement away a bad diet but supplements can help you lose weight faster and easier when you combine them with a thermogenic diet and metabolic exercise. I always tell my clients, "if you don't see results in the first 2 weeks - stop! You most likely won't ever". When you take a quality supplement that's blended and contains the exact amounts your body needs you'll see and feel the results right away. Especially if you're eating correctly and performing metabolic workouts.

Most inexpensive supplements are inexpensive because they don't have the amounts needed of the active ingredients to provide maximum results. Always buy from a reputable source and know what you're looking for. Or, buy from someone who has already done that for you. I blend all of my supplements so you don't have to pay a supplement scientist. When you buy cheap it's always "buyer beware". Quality is, and will always be, paramount!
