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

So declare out loud to the universe that you're willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy and get ready for the new, leaner you.
At LynFit, we believe the secret to your success is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable ones and then starting on the first one. So we put together a list for you to follow to help get you started.
STEPS THAT GUARANTEE YOUR WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS
- Read through the plan and make notes. Make a note of what you think will be difficult for you and a solution to it, as well as what you think will be easy for you.
- Write down your goal and post it all over your house to remind yourself why you started in the first place
- Weigh yourself and take a before photo (say good-bye to the struggle)
- Throw all of the junk "non-food” out of your house. You can’t eat it if it’s not there :)
- Make a list and go shop for what you need. No time to shop? Have it delivered right to your door.
- Eat foods from the approved food list only
- Surround yourself with like-minded, positive people who share your dreams and desires. Sometimes family can be the worst when it comes to transforming your bad habits. In fact, often they are your partner in crime, and you’ll need to remind them that you love them more than ever, but you need to take care of yourself. Invite them to join you, but don't force them. Ask them politely not to bring trigger foods into the house, and provide them with ways they can help you stay on track. A little communication goes a long way here.
- Try to eat between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m., making certain there is at least three hours in-between meals to help lower blood sugar levels and promote cleansing. Your body can't cleanse if you're always eating.
- Drink at least ten glasses of water each day. Here's an easy-to-follow plan: One glass when you wake up, one per hour, and one before bed.
- Eat your veggies and only one fruit daily. Your daily goal is five cups of veggies and one ½ cup serving of fruit. Here's your plan: Add ½ cup of fruit to your morning smoothie, two cups of veggies with your lunch shake, two more at dinner, and add one serving as a snack, and you did it. You’ll feel fuller longer, and you'll be cleansed and healthy. (See the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and Detox Plan for simple, delicious recipes)
- Be sure to have your two shakes daily. This is how you'll melt off the pounds and nourish your body, including your hair skin and nails.
- Sleep leaner. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep nightly to help reduce cortisol levels and allow your body time to recharge. If sleep is an issue, take a 20-minute nap during the day with your feet up. Rest quietly if you can't sleep.
- Take your supplements regularly. Supplementing is the best way to ensure your success, so make sure to take your supplements as directed in the Plan, even if you think you don’t need them. Each one serves a specific purpose, and the most important is keeping you healthy. Set a timer on your cell phone and carry them with you wherever you go so you don’t miss a dose It's better to take your supplement late than not at all. Drop all other supplements during the cleanse for best results. Many supplements leave residue in your system that needs cleansing.
- Emotional cravings making it tough? Have a cup of hot tea or broth, or call a friend. In the program, we say, “Change a thought, move a muscle.” Distract yourself by taking a walk or stretching. Whatever you do, get out of the kitchen. Helpful tip: Brushing your teeth always helps.
- When in doubt don’t! Instead, have another Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar. Think, “Eat clean to be lean” vs. not eating and end up binging.
- Embrace hunger, it’s a good sign. Don’t be afraid of it; it means your cleanse is working and your body is about to burn off stored fat. Once your body figures out that it’s the stored fat you want it to use, it will begin burning fat off, and the hunger will dissipate.
Remember, if it doesn’t challenge you it can't change you, and it will never get easier. But you will get better at doing what it takes!
What about exercise? Weight loss is 90 percent diet and only 25 percent sweat equity, so during the cleanse it's best to focus on the cleanse and minimize exercise. Some exercise programs can increase hunger and cravings and jack up cortisol levels, which is counter-productive.
While cleansing, it's best to focus on the healthiest forms of exercise that won't make you hungrier or increase stress hormones. Enjoy it; it won't be long before you're exercising again and seeing results, thanks to this cleanse.
Walk 10,000 steps every day. Walking after your last meal and before your first shake is a great way to help your body detox and offset the symptoms you may experience while your body is detoxifying.
Stretch every day. Stretching keeps your body working order and helps your body eliminate waste. Try the LynFit Recovery Stretch; it’s the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day or start your day off right.
Ten minutes of light weight lifting or the LynFit Lean Core workout is okay; just go easy, so you don’t interfere with the cleansing process or place larger nutritional demands on your body. This is about rebooting and healing.
How long should I cleanse? We suggest two weeks, but this plan is so efficient you can do 1-2-3 weeks or as many as you choose. The more weight you have to lose, the more you may need to cleanse.
Each Cleansing Kit lasts a minimum of two weeks, and most of the supplements last for 30 days, but many people prefer to have more than two shakes daily or make the desserts in the Complete Protein Recipe Guide, so you might want to pick up an additional Complete Protein Shake. It never hurts to have extra on hand for those "what should I eat moments."
AFTER THE CLEANSE
If you lost all the weight you wanted and feel thoroughly cleansed, your body is now ready to burn fat. Progress to the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. If you feel you need to do another two weeks, that's fine as well. This cleanse is so good for you that you can use it as a way of life. A lot of clients cleanse 4-5 days a week and allow themselves to have an "off" meal or two, depending on their metabolisms.
So, what are you waiting on? Go ahead; you can do it. Today you just became stronger than your excuses.
BELIEVE. BEGIN. BECOME.
Jump-Start Your Weight Loss With A Metabolic Boosting Cleanse
If you're thinking about starting your weight loss with a juice cleanse, think again. While juicing may be the most popular way to jump-start weight loss, it's not the best way; especially when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. What you don't know about juicing could STOP you from losing weight and may actually be harmful to your health.
You never hear of anyone "living" a cleansing lifestyle, yet we all know intuitively that we need to eat healthier. That's what makes juicing so attractive - it's considered a quick fix. We've all been there; sick and tired of being sick and tired and know we need to change our situation, so we try to do the right thing and jump into a juice cleanse because every good diet starts with a cleanse - right?
Within the first few days, our energy disappears, and our body starts to fight against us. We feel cranky and weak, and before you know it, the cravings begin, and we have to run to the bathroom every few minutes; praying we make it in time.
Most cleanses, especially those that include juicing, aren't good for your body, don't help you lose weight long-term, and don't burn fat off your body. And, if you can't burn fat, you'll look the same, even if you have lost some weight.
So, is juicing good for you at all? The real problem with juice cleansing is that it deprives your body of healthy fats and other essential nutrients your body requires to operate. This makes you feel terrible and can also cause you to lose that hard-earned muscle, which in turn slows down your metabolism, making it even harder to lose weight or maintain what you have lost.
Why? It's due to the decrease in calories, which causes your thyroid to slow down, making it impossible to burn fat. This will amplify your symptoms of fatigue and weakness, and can even cause permanent hair loss. Those seemingly innocent cleanses can also wreck havoc on your pocketbook. :)
I can hear you asking now, "But how; juicing has so many healthy ingredients?"
Let's be honest; if you like the juice you're drinking, the odds are it's because it's full of sugar. Even though the sugar might be from fresh fruit, it's still sugar, and your cells don't know the difference. And, when it comes to your veggies, it's always better to chew your food. Chewing is more satisfying to the senses.
You may think you're getting a few vitamins and minerals, but the blood sugar rise isn't worth it. Besides, you're not getting as many vitamins and minerals as you think. The lack of essential fats prevents nutrients from being absorbed.
While you might get ½ of your daily requirement of Vitamin A when juicing, most people forget that Vitamin A is fat soluble; meaning it needs to be consumed with a fat if you want your body to absorb it efficiently. One-third of these liquid sugar calories are stored as fat.
This is a nightmare for diabetics, pre-diabetics, and people who struggle with Gout. It increases Gout due to the toxic acids like uric acids that are formed when our liver metabolizes fructose.
Juicing has also been known to elevate triglycerides, due to the insulin spikes, and raise blood pressure.
Bottom line: Juicing is never a good idea for weight loss and is better used for weight gain.
In my Sports Nutrition line of work, raising blood sugar is the oldest trick in the book for getting underweight people to gain weight. Give them a glass of juice, and they will eat more later. (*Note for wine drinkers: Alcohol works the same way.)
There is a smarter way to cleanse that boosts metabolism, making it easier for you to lose weight, and this cleanse melts fat!
To lose weight, you need the following nutrients:
Lean Protein to boost metabolism by 25 percent and preserve lean muscle tissue, which is responsible for keeping your metabolism revved and your moods and hormones balanced. It will also help to keep you feeling fuller longer while feeding your hair skin and nails. It's the secret to looking good and feeling great.
Essential "good for fat loss" fats like Omega 3 to help transport nutrients like Vitamins A, D, and K; among many others like the B lean vitamins that are critically important for metabolic health.
These "good for you" fats help transport the nutrients into the cells where they are utilized. These nutrients do more than boost weight loss. They are responsible for nervous system and bone health, as well as hormone production, cell membrane formation, regulation of heart rate and blood pressure; all while providing energy.
A nourished body is a healthy body, and a healthy body loses weight easier, especially if you're metabolically-challenged (have a hard time losing weight).
There is a better solution that helps jump-start weight loss faster and promotes the burning of fat, which is really what you want. It's also more affordable and delicious, so you just might decide to have one every day, making for a healthier, leaner lifestyle.
The good news is this metabolic boosting, cleansing, detox cocktail does much much more. Everyone should be doing this for health, especially if you're trying to lose weight and burn fat.
Here is your new metabolic boosting cleansing morning ritual that breaks the overnight 12-hour fast, which is why it needs to provide the essential nutrients your body needs. No more and no less.
Every good smoothie starts with the best ingredients. Prioritize protein, using Non-GMO Whey to feed muscle and skeletal tissue, boost metabolism by up to 25 percent, block cortisol (stress hormones) that cause belly fat and stop weight loss, boost mood and brain health, all while nourishing hair skin and nails.
Whey alkalizes your body and aids in the detox process without making you feel terrible.Add in the right detox boosters that nourish better without all of the sugar and calories.
Why add detox-boosting super foods? You would have to juice over 30 pounds of produce, and you still wouldn’t come close to the nutrition found in certain super foods (found in LynFit Thyro-Boost).
Studies show that these super food ingredients play a critical role in promoting health and wellness. They encourage your body’s natural cleansing process, helping to flush a wide variety of substances out of your body; especially heavy metals and pesticides, among other disease-causing substances (this is why we cleanse).
Further, they help control hunger, cravings, and body odor, and encourages healing, protects against cancer, and the ravages of treatment, while helping to fight against the growth of candida (also a known cause for fatigue and cravings).
These super power foods also possess an amazing range of benefits because they contain the highest amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients needed for cardiovascular, muscular, and neural health; not to mention the Ashwagandha, that helps your body combat stress, keeping your cortisol (stress hormones) levels in check.
When you take them in liquid extract form (like in LynFit Thyro-Boost), nutrient uptake is increased, meaning they are more easily soaked up. Nutrients like iodine, among others, build up your thyroid and body, giving it the fuel it needs to send thyroid hormones throughout your entire body, stopping your metabolism from slowing down.
Everyone needs to consider taking this, even if they are not hypothyroid. This liquid extract supplement is an adaptogen, meaning your body will use it if it needs it, and won't if it doesn’t, so it does no harm.
Feeding your thyroid is like fertilizing your garden; it helps everything move a little faster and become healthier. (*Note: If you’re not hypothyroid it’s still a good idea to take LynFit Thyro-Boost. You’ll just need to take it once vs. twice a day.)
The best part about this supplement is that it’s safe to take, and actually suggested along with your medication. Be aware that your medication may work more efficiently after cleansing and using super foods so that you may need less. Be sure to tell your doctor so he or she can adjust the amount you’re taking.
Don’t let the name Thyro-Boost fool you. It’s called Thyro-Boost because it helps feed and nourish the thyroid, which is the master gland of your body. Feed it right, and it takes care of your overall health.
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- A balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids
Plus, rich sources of antioxidants from super foods in the form of extracts, which are more potent, like:
- Black walnut
- Shepard’s purse
- Irish moss
The most important thing to remember when you decide to cleanse or fast is to DO NO HARM FIRST! That means providing your body with what it needs to stay healthy first. This is the best way to jump-start your weight loss and keep it off.
The truth is - every really good diet is a cleanse in disguise!
Boost Your Metabolism By Boosting Your Fiber Intake With Lean Bars
Full confession — I'm addicted to LynFit Lean Bars. They have become my grab-and-go meal, and the #1 go-to food when I need to eat on the run or my sweet tooth yells and cravings hit (like every day). Thankfully, they satisfy me more than any candy, cookie, or cake.....seriously!
Since I've been eating Lean Bars daily, my health has improved, and I no longer fall off the weight loss wagon due to my ferocious, undying sweet tooth. So if you're a Lean Bar lover like me, you're going to love this great news. And if you're not, you just might change your mind after reading about this research.
By now I'm sure you're aware of fiber's importance and its reputation as a "keep you feeling full" nutritional hero. It gets even better, though. It turns out that certain fibers, such as prebiotic fiber (the kind found in LynFit Lean Bars), may also be a real superhero when it comes to the fountain of youth.
Research agrees. A new Australian study followed the diets and health statuses of over 1,600 adults for a 10-year period. At the beginning of the study, all the subjects were age 49 or over and free of any chronic disease. Over the course of the 10-year study period, only 15.5 percent of the subjects remained disease-free.
Looking at various aspects of diet, the researchers noted that fiber intake proved to be the most telling and biggest predictor of healthy aging, by a long shot. Study subjects that consumed the most fiber were 80 percent more likely to remain fully functional and free of any chronic disease.
These findings don't surprise me at all. Over the past 20 years, fiber has earned its reputation for its impressive list of full-service health benefits. Benefits that include reducing appetite, lowering glucose and cholesterol levels, improving digestive function, and most notably, feeding the all-important microbiome — better known as gut bacteria.
Prebiotics & Obesity
Although gastrointestinal physicians have long known that a disproportionate amount of unhealthy bacteria live in the guts of overweight patients, until now there has been no conclusive data on how prebiotic fiber might aid with considerable weight loss.
Now, however, findings show that not only do overweight individuals suffer from an unhealthy bacterial mix in the gut, but also incorporating a regimen of prebiotics into the diet helps these same overweight individuals lose weight, according to Belgian researchers at the Université Catholique de Louvain and published in the peer-reviewed British Journal of Nutrition.
There is now an enormous amount of research that has occurred on gut microbiome (gut bacteria). The forefront of this research has been looking directly at the microbiome and bacterial makeup, and its relationship to the development of obesity and being overweight. As with everything we say at LynFit, there must be good science behind it first. Medical credibility is #1 on our list.
Microbiome (gut bacteria) controls your health. Prebiotic fiber nourishes your gut microbes and keeps your gut strong and fit and in good working order. So it's crucial that you eat fibrous vegetables (see veggie examples HERE and in The Metabolism Solution) and at least one LynFit Lean Bar daily.
A LynFit Lean Bar A Day Keeps The Pounds Away
Our busy lives make it difficult to meet our daily fiber numbers, but if you eat a LynFit Lean Bar daily, you'll be more than a third of the way to nailing your daily fiber intake goal. Studies show we should consume 30 grams of fiber daily. Preferably the prebiotic fiber like that found in LynFit Lean Bars. This specific fiber will help keep you regular, which helps to keep your stomach flat, unlike other fibers that will bloat you.
That's exactly the reason I made sure LynFit Lean Bars contain as much prebiotic fiber as possible. Each Lean Bar contains 9–10 grams of a unique prebiotic fiber to help keep you regular and feeling full.
The truth is, you simply cannot buy a better protein bar!
To get the most health and metabolic boosting benefits from the fiber you eat, you need to have an abundance of good bacteria residing in your colon. Here are some key strategies for establishing and maintaining a robust supply of fat-fighting, beneficial gut bacteria:
- Eat a LynFit Lean Bar every day
- Make your own high-fiber protein shake/smoothie
- Make a fiber-bomb dessert: Pour pre-made LynFit Complete Protein Shake over fresh cut peaches
- Take 2–3 LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse every night with dinner. LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse is a custom blended supplement containing nutrients that help your body digest food, so you're less prone to constipation. It's gentle enough to use every day.
- It's crucial to eat an abundance of plant-based, high-fiber foods daily. Good bacteria feed off of fiber and the more "real food" fiber you eat, the more good bacteria you will have in your gut. This is the most effective and powerful of all these strategies. Honestly, if you don't eat an abundance of fiber, success is almost impossible.
- Include fermented foods that contain live bacteria in your diet. Foods like sauerkraut and kimchi.
- Include superstar fiber content fruits and veggies in your diet. Foods like raspberries, snow peas, green apples, pears, canned tomato products, pumpkin, cauliflower, spinach, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, Brussel sprouts, okra, and artichoke hearts.
- Eat more beans. Strive for one serving daily, but be careful to measure out your serving. Beans pack a calorie punch. If you're still in the weight loss phase, eat beans instead of your usual protein at dinner. A typical serving is only ¼–½ of a cup. Every bean is different so be sure to check labels. Measure for measure, beans provide more fiber than any other food (about 3–4 times more than other fruits and veggies). All of them are fiber superstars so choose the ones you enjoy the most.
- Don't take antibiotics unless medically indicated. And, if you must take an antibiotic, be sure to take a daily probiotic supplement as directed (over-the-counter) while you are on the antibiotic and for a full two weeks after that.
- Gardening is great for immunity. Get out in nature and get dirty. The soil contains a whole ecosystem of good bacteria. Gardening is highly recommended, especially vegetable gardening. Why not grow your own?
A startling recent discovery has shown that most overweight people have a bad mix of colon bacteria. This bad mix is technically called dysbiosis. What causes this type of bad bacterial mix to occur? It is the type of diet, often high-meat and saturated fat, that overweight people have eaten for many years.
Prebiotics are not probiotics. A probiotic is a live bacteria that you take by mouth, as in yogurt or a pill, in the hope that it will make a beneficial change in the digestive tract. A prebiotic, on the other hand, is a plant fiber, a specialized form of soluble fiber that has distinct actions within the colon.
Simply put, these fibers are the fuel that drives the very best bacteria already in the colon to vigorously multiply. We know these good bacteria can and do grow and divide every 20 minutes if there is enough nourishment around. Keeping a rich supply of the best prebiotics, found in LynFit Lean Bars, in the colon is simply the healthiest thing you can do to prevent dysbiosis in the colon.
Quite simply, prebiotics are what makes LynFit Lean Bars different from every other protein bar on the market. They are the best protein bar you can buy.
Lean Bars are LynFit's very own custom-blended protein bar. They are made fresh (some by hand, not machine-made), making sure to protect these superhero prebiotics. How special are they? Special enough that the band Chicago's own Tris Imboden considers them his go-to snack food. As Tris says, "I simply won't go on the road without a supply of LynFit Lean Bars!"
LynFit blends weight loss and health management together in its Lean Bars. By combining, it becomes a holistic approach, which is needed for lasting weight loss to occur.
An important note to remember — you cannot overdose on fiber. If mild bloating should occur as your body adjusts, simply reduce the amount you're consuming. Make sure you're drinking enough water to help flush things out. You may even want to try drinking hot water with lemon every day.
The prebiotics found in LynFit Lean Bars will tend to encourage an acidity within the colon. This is very healthy and is the desired effect as it's what protects us from disease. Thankfully, when this does happen, smelly rectal gas or flatus does not develop. When rectal gas no longer has a bad smell, you know you are getting enough fiber. And, if you haven't arrived at that point yet.......simple, go back and read above.
NOTE: You may need to make sure you're allowing yourself enough time each day to go to the bathroom. Sorry to be so graphic, but constipation affects almost everyone when they change their diet. It also slows down and masks weight loss.
A Leaky Gut?
When you have bad bacteria and dysbiosis in the colon, the colon wall itself weakens and allows toxins, unwanted chemicals, and even bacteria parts to seep into the bloodstream and reach your liver. Eventually, your general health declines due to the toxins that are released and absorbed.
Toxins are bad for everyone, especially if you're overweight. They lead to chronic inflammation (aches, pains, and stiffness) throughout the body, and contribute to high blood pressure and heart disease. They also contribute to obesity due to the rise in blood sugar levels.
Dysbiosis is clearly related to increased insulin resistance and difficulty in blood sugar control. However, medical trials have shown that correcting dysbiosis with prebiotics, like the ones found in LynFit Lean Bars, make Diabetes 2 easier to control.
Colon and breast cancer are also associated with obesity and dysbiosis. There is much research being done to unravel the cause and effect. It is known, however, that you are in a different and worse group altogether if you are overweight and have dysbiosis.
If bad bacteria are present, or you become constipated, your body may not absorb nutrients, liquids, vitamins, and the minerals it should. This leads to feelings of fatigue, cause illness, and prevents weight loss. Have you ever wondered why you can't lose weight when you're not eating much? Now you know. All the more reason for establishing and maintaining that robust supply of good gut bacteria. It's also a good reason to make sure you're not constipated by taking LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse.
It is quite surprising that so much medical research has occurred so quickly in this area. So, let's review what we've learned:
- A predominance of good bacteria in the gut makes fewer calories than when bad bacteria are predominant.
- There is a hunger hormone made in the wall of the stomach. Less of this hormone is made when prebiotics are a rich part of your diet. You have less hunger.
- There are satiety or fullness hormones made in the wall of the small intestine. Prebiotics increase the release of these beneficial hormones to give you an earlier sense of fullness when you eat.
- A leaky gut is corrected, and the passage of toxins and other unwanted materials into the blood is slowed down or stopped.
- Blood sugar control is better, and there is less insulin resistance, which helps promote weight loss.
- Inflammation in the gut and body is reduced.
- Believe it or not, when a good bacterial balance is present in the gut, different chemical signals are sent to the brain via the blood stream. Positive behavioral emotions seem to occur, perhaps even changing your eating habits. Mood and emotions seem to improve.

Boost Metabolism & Weight Loss While Supercharging Fat Loss!
Wanna drop a few pounds and melt off that stubborn belly fat? You can — all you need is a boost to jumpstart your weight loss and turn up your fat-burning by stacking your fat loss supplements.
- Burn fat
- Boost metabolism
- Crush cravings
- Improve energy and focus
The goal is to reduce body fat levels, and the best way to do this is to feed the muscle and starve the fat. Since muscle burns calories it's critical that you keep it. The best way to accomplish this is to follow the LynFit Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan.
The Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan is a low carb, low fat approach to losing weight and melting fat. It's the #1 way to lose weight faster and easier. It's also the healthiest way to lose weight. Since it's low in bad carbs and fat, but high in fiber (from vegetables) and lean proteins (such as LynFit Complete Protein Shakes, LynFit Lean Bars, and white fish), it helps to slow down the aging process as well. You cannot find a faster, easier, or better way to lose weight and melt belly fat.
Make sure you're drinking at least two LynFit Complete Protein Shakes daily to increase your metabolism and keep your hard earned muscle from being burned as fuel.
LynFit Complete Protein is unique due to the superior quality of whey that's used. This high-quality whey is also why it blocks cortisol levels from rising that may allow your body to store more fat. (NOTE: LynFit cannot guarantee theses results using other protein shakes and vegan proteins as they will not work the same way)
It doesn't matter if you're male or female, boosting your metabolism is the best way to supercharge your fat loss, creating fast, visible results that can be seen the first week you start.
The secret is stacking your fat loss supplements for maximum results. You'll burn more calories all day long, even while you sleep. Stacking fat loss supplements also prevent the metabolic slowdown that occurs when you reduce calories. LynFit's fat loss stack is the only fat loss formula that helps you overcome the common obstacles that will stop you from losing weight by addressing the underlying issues at the source, such as:
- Metabolic resistance (inability to lose weight)
- High blood sugar
- High blood pressure
- Depression and anxiety caused by improper diet
- Many, many more.....
Sometimes diet and exercise just aren't enough. That's where the smart use of safe supplements comes in. Below, are simple steps you can take to boost your metabolism and weight loss while supercharging your fat loss and reducing cellulite.
LYNFIT'S THERMOGENIC FAT LOSS STACK 101
Step One: Turn up the heat to increase your metabolism
Step Two: Prevent thyroid slowdown, regulate metabolism, and balance blood sugar levels
Step Three: Burn fat, kill cravings, and reduce cellulite
The most important time to take your fat loss stack is when you're not eating clean, so it's critical that you take your stack on vacation and your "off" days. Be sure to take them with a full glass of water or green tea each time.

Slimming Smoothie To Beat The Bloat & Boost Your Energy!
You'll find all different kinds of smoothies these days, but not all of them are good for weight loss. Some of them may be the very reason you can't keep your eyes open in the afternoon and feel bloated all the time.
To combat that, I'm going to show you a refreshing smoothie that is not only delicious, but also has Pokemon-Go super powers. This smoothie will help you rehydrate post-workout, rev up your fat burning, and beat the bloat.
When it comes to weight loss; beating bloat, and boosting energy, it's important to know what to add to them — and what NOT to add to them. That can make or break your weight loss and lead to feeling tired and bloated.
Nuts, nut milks, and nut butters such as peanut butter, almond milk, coconut milk, avocado, and chia seeds all add excessive amounts of fat. When you add them to your smoothie, you're also adding in their fat content, and effectively halting your weight loss. Adding even one tablespoon of these diet dealbreakers can use up your fat sugar budget for the whole day. After all, the whole objective to drinking a slimming meal replacement smoothie is to help reduce calorie levels and offset the not-so-good eating we all fall victim to.
While these foods may be very healthy, they also pack a big, bulky punch when it comes to additional calories in the form of fat, carbs, and diet-destroying sugar. Let's take a closer look at some of these smoothie mix-ins that cause bloat, and are better for weight gain vs. weight loss.
Vegetarian Proteins — they are not easy to digest and are not a complete protein unless you mix it with carbs, which is what you're trying to avoid. Vegan protein doesn't boost metabolism or block cortisol because it doesn't contain the right amount of specific ingredients your body needs.
1 tbsp. of peanut butter — has 8 grams of fat
¼ of an avocado — has 8 grams of fat
2 tbsp. of chia seeds — adds 6 grams of fat
1 cup of Almond Milk — adds 60 calories and 2.5 grams of fat, but the bigger issue is the 8 carb grams that come from sugar. Even if you buy unsweetened, you're still adding empty calories.
Adding excess fruit — yes, adding in excess fruit can be a diet dealbreaker because of the empty calories and excess sugar that can negatively impact your weight loss. Fat and sugar do nothing but make you feel bloated, block your weight loss, and zap your energy.
To reinforce, while healthy, these foods use up to ½ your daily fat budget. The bottom line is they add way too many calories to your breakfast, leaving you very little to slip up during the day, and the odds are you will—you're only human.
Now, let's turn the tables—using high-quality whey protein and NOT adding in these high-calorie ingredients can help you lose 15 pounds in one-year alone, with one simple step.
We're going to make a slimming smoothie that will boost your energy and weight loss while banishing bloat! This Tropical Slimming Smoothie will help you lose weight (up to a pound per day if you replace two meals with it), and energize you all day, without the highs and lows that energy drinks and gourmet coffee drinks create. And, you'll feel less bloated the same day you start leaning out your smoothie.
First off, if you want a clean smoothie, you've got to make it yourself. You want to use only LynFit Complete Protein as your base and only mix in low or no-calorie mix-ins (besides tasting absolutely delicious, you aren't adding any extra calories, carbs, or sugars).
When you use LynFit Complete Protein, your metabolism will not slow down as a result of dieting and eating less. In fact, just the opposite happens — you'll speed up your metabolism by 25 percent, boost energy, and reduce bloating.
So, here's the smoothie recipe you've been waiting for. The fruit smoothie that will help you lose weight, boost energy and banish bloat. All while hydrating you and providing all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy.
TROPICAL SLIMMING SMOOTHIE (hormone-free, soy-free, gluten-free, no fat added, no sugar added)
Blend the ingredients together until thoroughly combined and sip yourself slim — it's that simple! Takes less than a minute and costs less than a cup of coffee.
This DIY Tropical Slimming Smoothie not only saves you time and money, it saves you a lot of calories too. You'll lose over 400 calories and 10+ teaspoons of sugar. Sugar from fruit is the #1 reason for bloating.
Better yet, you'll be gaining some significant factors:
- A faster metabolism
- Revved up fat loss
- Sustained energy
- Nourished, healthy body
By adding LynFit Daily Power Shot to your LynFit Complete Protein Shake, you'll be rehydrating and replacing lost nutrients due to sweat and exercise. It will also add 90 essential nutrients and 60 trace minerals that your body cannot make on its own. You'll also be adding electrolytes to hydrate your body, which is the secret to banishing that bloated feeling.
LynFit Complete Protein has been clinically proven to deliver the highest quality protein you can buy. It's known for being a better hunger suppressor than eggs and some proteins; such as tuna and turkey. Simply put, it's just not some any old whey protein. It's the most rapidly digested of all supplemental proteins.
What does that mean to you? The amino acid in LynFit Complete Protein is rapidly absorbed, so the process of repair can be accelerated. Additionally, LynFit Complete Protein is loaded with health-building nutrients, including B-Complex vitamins, selenium, calcium, and iodine — the metabolic boosting secret.
Last thoughts: Make smoothies your go-to food when you're craving junk or feeling hungry. Hunger isn't a bad thing. It means your body needs nutrition, and that's exactly what you should feed it—not the stuff we normally reach for.

Energize Your Body & Your Weight Loss
One of the worst parts about losing weight is a lack of energy. There are some things you need to be doing to avoid the dreaded energy slump. And the best news? You can do it without caffeine and sugar.
Power your energy and metabolism with protein. While fat contains more energy than protein (9 calories per gram compared to 4 calories per gram for protein), protein has a different advantage. Protein releases energy at a much slower rate, helping to prevent blood sugar fluctuations that not only sap energy but can also slow weight loss, especially if you overeat.
The best sources of protein when it comes to boosting energy and fat loss include the whey found in LynFit Complete Protein Shakes and LynFit Lean Bars, fish, poultry, egg whites, and cottage cheese. A more detailed protein list is found in The Metabolism Solution and the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan.
Boost your energy with water—water works. Did you know being even a little dehydrated can slow your metabolism by three percent and make you feel groggy? It can also compromise brain function. If you're in doubt as to whether or not you're drinking enough water, chances are.....you're not.
While we've all heard "eight glasses of water a day keeps the pounds away" — this may not be enough when it comes to losing weight. It's best to drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water each day. It's very important to listen to your body and include numerous water-rich vegetables such as lettuce, cucumbers, celery, broccoli, tomatoes, and some fruits in your diet.
If you're following the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan you're most likely getting your hydration needs met because you should be drinking a full glass of water each time you take your supplements and eating 5–10 servings of veggies daily.
Start your day with LynFit's energy water. Simply add one ounce (one serving) of LynFit Daily Power Shot to your water and drink up. It's delicious, and that makes reaching your daily water quota easier.
Avoid the caffeine crash—the buzz that wears off, leaving you feeling even worse than before. Like sugar, caffeine is only a temporary fix for lack of energy. Actually, lack of energy is almost always the reason for falling off track.
While it's okay to have a cup of coffee in the morning after you've had a full glass of water while taking your supplements, that doesn't mean it's okay to call one of those 24-ounce mugs a cup.
You don't have to quit caffeine completely or go cold turkey. Just be sure you're drinking your coffee black and without sugar. Better yet, add your coffee to your Complete Protein Shake for a delicious, healthier version. Or, try green tea after your first cup of coffee.
Green tea is one of the best hydrators. It has about a ¼ the caffeine of your average cup of coffee. Green tea contains catechins, a natural stimulant that boosts central nervous system activity to increase energy levels and fight fatigue while boosting immunity and fat loss.
If you really just can't quit coffee, and you're drinking it black, at least try to stick to only 2–3 cups daily. Be sure to stay caffeine-free after 12 noon so you don't affect your sleep. You need to be caffeine-free for six hours before bedtime, and you should be going to bed prior to 11:00 p.m.
Steer clear of sugar. Juice, juicing, as well as coffees with creamers or milk added, contain more sugar than soda. Sugar does give you a quick hit of energy. That's why we crave it. The harsh reality is that it also causes you to crash just as quickly as it lifted you up. It's a hard crash that also leads you to cravings.
The quick spike in blood sugar levels, and the dip afterward, can tax your body's adrenal system, your body's regulator of energy. This complication is why you feel so horrible coming off the white stuff. To prevent this damage, it's best to reach for a protein-packed snack like LynFit Lean Bars when the mid-afternoon cravings kick in. A handful of almonds or walnuts on top of your Complete Protein Shake is delicious and will hit that cravings spot.
Take your vitamins. Most of the time, when you lacking energy, it's your body's way of telling you it needs nutrients. Most times, we give it what it doesn't need vs. what it does need. Why not get your buzz on by taking your vitamins. Better yet, drink them, courtesy of the LynFit Daily Power Shot.
LynFit Daily Power Shot contains over 90 essential nutrients and trace minerals, which your body doesn't make. LynFit Daily Power Shot contains B vitamins that are in colloidal form, meaning they are absorbed easier and faster. You'll feel better faster due to their small size.
B vitamins are critical when it comes to weight loss and energy production because they aid in just about every category. Vitamin B2 (also known as Riboflavin) is necessary for the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates into energy, while Niacin (vitamin B3) and all of its derivatives, help convert glucose to energy. Last, but not least, thiamin (vitamin B1), folic acid (vitamin B6), vitamin B12, and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) play a role in energy production. In short, these multivitamins and mineral are like adding gas to a fire—they make it burn faster.
Certain foods; such as leafy green vegetables, whey Complete Protein Shakes and Lean Bars, fish, seafood, and poultry are great sources of B vitamins. Supplementing with these vitamins is much more effective because they are combined in a way where the results are maximized, allowing you to be more consistent that relying on your diet alone. Supplementing also ensures that you're getting the right combination, in exactly the amounts your body needs. You may want to consider ordering LynFit Daily Power Shot, LynFit Recovery Agent, and LynFit Pure Omega 3 to add extra ammunition to your weight loss and energy arsenal.
A word on the power of energy enzymes: Mitochondria are the workhorse in every living cell in your body. Yet these hard working mitochondria are essentially useless if it wasn't for its enzymes, mitochondria's partner in crime—specifically Co-Q10 (found in LynFit Daily Power Shot and LynFit Cutting Edge). These enzymes are critical to maintaining energy in the body. Unfortunately, they are also found in red meat, which is not good for your weight loss. This makes supplementing even more important.
Of course, there are other sources, such as whole grains, yeast, and some leafy green vegetables. But to get the desired amount your body needs it's recommended that you supplement to guarantee that your body gets what it needs on a consistent basis.
Then there are the good fats that we don't seem to get enough of—Omega 3. Every person—even your dog(s)—should be taking Omega 3 every day. While all of us get enough of the Omega 6 fats that can be the cause of inflammation that saps our energy, Omega 3 is a different story altogether. In addition to promoting optimal cognitive function, and helping to reduce symptoms of inflammation (aches, pains, hair loss, skin issues), Omega 3 helps the body balance blood sugar levels, which helps to fight off hunger and cravings. It helps the body store glycogen, the body's primary source of stored fuel.
To increase your Omega 3 intake, you could add salmon, tuna, and other fatty fish to your diet twice weekly. For the best results, I prefer to rely on LynFit Pure Omega 3, a concentrated prescription-grade fish oil supplement. Flax and other plant sources of Omega 3 are not the same and will not provide you with the same results as fish oil. Buy the best, and you'll use less.
Gotta get moving to work out the kinks. I know, I know—I can hear you screaming at me now. And, I agree—it sounds counterintuitive that working out when you feel completely exhausted could possibly increase your energy. The reality is it can, and it will. Exercise can help you power through the rest of your day.
If you're feeling more tired than usual, try LynFit Recovery Stretch, or opt for a low impact exercise that allows you to relax—like walking.
Of course, there are literally dozens of reasons why your energy levels may be low. Being overweight, menopausal, or hypothyroidism (which I struggle with myself) all lead to low energy levels. So it's always a good idea to rule out any medical causes. Have your physician run simple blood tests to eliminate low thyroid function, iron level abnormalities, food allergies or sensitivities to make sure your fatigue isn't anything more, and, never underestimate stress.
Stress affects the body more than most of us realize. While we can't change our lives, we do need to change the way we think about things. Gratitude works. Count your blessings while you take your daily walk. You'll feel better fast.
Go to bed! Prevention is the best cure, and that leads me to sleep. Sleep is the most important step when it comes to boosting energy and protecting your health. Sleep needs vary by age, gender, stress, activity levels, and other factors. A good rule-of-thumb is to try and catch 6–8 hours of lean, energy boosting, high-quality sleep nightly.
If you struggle with sleep, reach for a natural approach like LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin. Melatonin will not only help you fall asleep, but it also helps you get a better quality restorative sleep while helping to melt off stubborn belly fat.
If you still feel like your energy's lagging throughout the day, schedule some time for a mid-afternoon 20-minute nap to take that edge off. Be sure to keep naps to 30 minutes or less. Anything more and you could wake up feeling even more sluggish than you did before. If you can't nap; relax and put your feet up in a reclined position. This is also a great refresher.

I’m finding that I have very low levels of energy since I started losing weight, and I even feel dizzy at times. I’m worried that I’m not eating enough. Could this be because my body is still adapting to the dietary changes I’ve made and adjusting to less carbohydrate intake? How long does this usually last? I’m also finding that I don’t have the energy to work out like I used to. Any suggestions?
This question from a LynFit customer is very common and points out the very issues that need to be addressed for you to lose weight and feel energized. If these issues aren't addressed quickly, it often leads to falling back into the old eating habits that resulted in becoming overweight to begin with.
First, it's important to realize that making any kind of change is difficult, and there will be some speed bumps along the way. Each person responds differently to dietary changes, especially when processed carbohydrates are removed and your eating is put back into nutritional perspective vs. eating all the time.
The adjustment time depends on individual factors, which most of the time will lead you back to the reasons you were struggling with your weight. Things such as how dependent you are on food for emotional reasons, or to stimulate your body instead of providing your body with what it really needs. Necessities such as sleep and rest. Additionally, your body will react to how much it may be addicted to sugar and processed carbs.
If you're coming from a place of high carbohydrate intake (processed carbs are the worst), you may have to take it slowly at first. Frankly, there is no easy way to go through this "low carb flu" except to go through it. I prefer a cold turkey approach because it gets you where you want to go faster, and makes it easier to stick to your meal plan. You see the results and begin to feel better more quickly.
If the cold turkey approach isn't right for you, you don't have to quit your plan entirely. If you're struggling, simply begin your day by drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake for breakfast for one week. Then, add it to your lunch the second week. The third week, remove your mid-morning snack. Remember, this is your diet and your meal plan. Design it to work according to what you need or your schedule dictates.
It's important to remember that just like driving a car, the more gas you give, the faster you go. The less gas you apply, the slower you go. If you find yourself in the slow lane—don't panic. What I love best about the Accelerated Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan is that it's a guarantee that you'll lose weight, and you have all the control. That means you can take your time if you need to. That includes how and when you take your supplements. If it's too much to follow the supplement schedule, start at your own pace.
It's vital that you don't quit because you struggle a bit. We all struggle. Let's face it—if it were easy everyone would be doing it. Real, lasting change happens when you leave your comfort zone, so fight for what you want without hurting yourself.
As you begin to reduce your caloric intake, track your weight loss daily and how you're feeling. Try to keep everything else in your daily routine the same. That way it will be easier to identify what is causing your lack of energy. It just might be right in front of you, and may be the reason you find yourself wanting to reach for more food than what your body needs.
Note the duration and quality of your sleep as well. Also include your exercise routine, or lack of one, stress levels, and any other big changes you're experiencing.
For some of us, trying to make too many changes at one time sets us up for issues, while for others, they feel better right away. That' why it's important to pay close attention to what your body is saying and listen to what it really needs.
Also, make sure you're not overdoing it in any one area, especially when it comes to over or under-exercising. Balance is crucial. If needed, dial back a little if fatigue is beginning to affect your health and healthier eating.
The real physiological adjustment to a dietary can take up to two to three weeks. This is especially true when it comes to lowering or removing the not-so-healthy carbs from your diet. There's a lot more going on physically than you might realize. Changes such as a significant decrease in blood sugar levels, lowering of blood fats, and hormones beginning to become balanced again, helping to turn off your hunger and cravings while prompting your body to burn fat for fuel vs. asking you to feed it every chance you get.
These metabolic changes can only happen if you are consistent and following the plan. If you feel you cannot take it, and decide to eat whatever you want to soothe those uncomfortable feelings, you'll derail your hard-earned efforts that took weeks to get. While not everyone will have to be this strict, those of us who struggle with our weight or have any type of metabolic resistance such as hypothyroidism and high blood sugar levels, or have tried every diet on the planet, may need to stand firm through this struggle while detoxing. It will feel like the flu, thus earning the name "low carb flu."
This diet does have carbs in it, but from a fibrous source that boosts weight loss vs. the carbs that cause weight gain such as cereals, bread, rice, and pasta. More information on weight-gaining carbs can be found in The Metabolism Solution.
Be sure you're not missing your protein shakes and that you're eating all the leafy greens you should be. Make sure you're taking your supplements, especially LynFit Pure Omega 3. When your body gets what it needs from good fats, lean protein, and vegetables, you can get the energy needed (from glucose) for your brain to function, keep your energy levels balanced, and fuel your body.
As you can now see, there really isn't a good reason to not eat according to the plan. The best way to get the energy you need is to eat the kinds of food that provide that energy. And, when you feel you need an extra boost of energy—eat more of the right stuff, that's good for your body vs. reaching for the wrong foods that will only leave you wanting more.
The truth is, when you get into those stressful times, you may not be craving those kinds of food. It's your stress levels taking you out of balance, leading to you craving all the wrong foods. That all being said, if your body needs fuel, the easy fill-up is to reach for a LynFit Complete Protein Shake or LynFit Lean Bar. Worst case scenario—have both. Doing so will keep your body from eating up the hard earned, precious muscle tissue that helps to keep your metabolism revved up and your skin tight.
It's the liver's job to convert the protein we eat into glucose. This process is fueled by fat, so it's important that you're taking in enough of the nutrients needed (LynFit Complete Protein, LynFit Daily Power Shot, LynFit Pure Omega 3) to keep your body fueled properly and its processes running smoothly.
NOTE: If you are constipated or feeling bloated, you may want to consider adding LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse to your daily regimen to help detox your liver.
LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse and LynFit Pure Omega 3 are support products that may be added to your daily regimen but are not included in any of the LynFit kits because not everyone needs them. You can add them if you feel you need the support. I would suggest taking them if you're not eating fish twice weekly.
Now I'd like to talk about the type and amount of exercise you're doing. It matters more than you might realize. I suggest a specific type of exercise that boosts metabolism vs. slowing it down, and for a very good reason—it's the best way to stay at, or below, an hour or less for intensive workouts. The reason less than a half hour is so important is that the body can only store 200–300 grams of glycogen daily without carb-loading (carb-loading is a technique used for weight gain). That is an important number due to it being just enough fuel to get you through an hour of moderate metabolic boosting workouts. That 200–300-gram limit is where your body needs to be to burn fat.
The fact is, two hours of intense workouts, whether it's CrossFit or running, will leave your body tired and often craving carbs. If you perform the metabolic boosting workouts as suggested in The Metabolism Solution, no matter how intense, the body won't begin to break down muscle for fuel (glucose). You'll not only feel better; you'll look better too. Your body will recover faster and more efficiently by burning fat and will be able to restock the 200–300 grams of glycogen for the next day.
If weight loss is your goal, working with your body, not against its physiology, will bring about the best results. It's okay, even suggested, that you exercise longer at a lower level (approximately 60 percent of your max heart rate).
If your workout leaves you feeling ravenous or to the point where you can't stop eating, you're working yourself too hard, and it's counter-productive to your weight loss efforts. Allow for one day rest periods between intense workouts. These rest periods are intended for productive healing and to help lower cortisol levels, which can negatively affect weight loss. You can always do the Recovery Stretch at a low level of intensity or take a nice walk (the kind where others want to join you) to feel better fast.
Now is your time to begin using natural energy boosters to enhance your weight loss and fitness goals!
Get Your Mojo Back With Natural Energy Boosters
Do you wake up in the morning not feeling refreshed — even after a full night's sleep? You're not alone. Fatigue and lack of energy are the #1 health complaint of all ages. Lack of energy is the very reason most diets fail.
Fatigue is largely responsible for our national obesity epidemic and our growing waistlines. Fatigue causes us to crave sugar and carbs and all the wrong foods. Fatigue has also been known to escalate mood swings and irritability. Fatigue may also be one of the reasons that depression is on the rise.
If you feel tired all the time, your body is trying to tell you something. If you listen to it (your body), you just might learn the reason "why" you're tired all the time. Energy—it controls every system in your body, including your metabolism and health.
So if you're ready to get your mojo back, you just might be surprised at how simple the solution may be. Here are the Top 4 reasons you're always tired and the simple solutions to boost your energy.....
PROBLEM #1: Too little sleep and lack of quality (restorative) sleep.
PROBLEM #2: We don't eat enough energy-boosting protein. This makes you feel exhausted from the moment you wake up, as well as causing cravings for all the wrong kinds of food that are full of caffeine and sugar. Even worse, this lack of energy-boosting protein causes weight gain. Protein is often the most ignored nutrient (especially in women). In addition to affecting energy levels, it can adversely affect muscle tone. That's why you get "jiggly arms."
Most of us are living on either gourmet coffees or juices, and we think they're good for us. An hour later our energy is crashing again due to the abundance of sugar they contain. They lack the nutrients needed to protect our health and boost energy. This sets up a vicious cycle of depending on these expensive drinks that zap our energy and rob our health.
PROBLEM #3: The afternoon "dead zone" when it seems your energy bottom falls out. After lunch, when you're exhausted and can't focus on work let alone get your workout in, most of us grab the wrong foods when we need a pick-me-up. This sets us off into a negative feedback food loop.
What you might not know can zap your energy and cause weight gain. You see, most commercially purchased protein and cereal bars are loaded with sugars, fats, and unidentifiable carbs that cause weight gain. To put it bluntly, most contain the wrong nutrients for your body, despite what their label might claim. In fact, most of the protein bars we all eat don't even have enough protein in them to be classified as a "protein" bar. But they do pack a punch, due to one thing — sugar! Some of these so-called protein bars have more sugar in them than a handful of your favorite candy.
carbohydrates that zap energy and stop fat loss. Actually, in the long run, they will make you hungrier. Ultimately, it's all about making better choices.
PROBLEM #4: Your body lacks the critical essential nutrients that it needs to stay energized and healthy. Stress, weight loss, workouts, and drinking can deplete your body quickly, which increases your nutritional needs. Most of us are going the quick fix route instead of identifying the root of the problem that's causing the fatigue. Products like Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy supplements might provide a quick fix but may leave your body worse off and nutrient-depleted. This is why you crash and feel your energy has been zapped.
Boost your energy naturally today. A nourished body is a healthy body, and a healthy body loses weight easier!

Fat Burners To Make Weight Loss Faster & Easier
So, you didn't lose the weight you wanted to or lean out enough to put those shorts on this summer. It may be time to use fat burning tools to help rid you of that stubborn weight. Fat burners can help you more than you may realize, especially if you're already drinking LynFit Protein Shakes or eating LynFit Lean Bars for breakfast to boost your metabolism. This article will teach you how to give fat loss a 1-2-3 punch, so even the most stubborn body fat can be burned off.
Maybe you're already doing all these things:
- Eating a lean, clean diet that's high in metabolic boosting proteins, high in fiber, and loaded with thermogenic vegetables
- Doing your metabolic boosting workouts and getting in your 10,000 steps daily
So how can fat burners help you? Simple—these supplements can help you lose twice as much weight in ½ the time while aiding in melting off stubborn belly fat by creating the fat burning environment needed to see results.
I've found from my many years of working with celebrities, pro fitness models, and bodybuilders, that in addition to cleaning up their diets and getting them on a workout plan they can do consistently, they always get better results when they stack the right combination of fat loss supplements. This is known as lipotropics. Lipotropics are natural supplements that help your body use stored energy while sparing lean muscle tissue.
Adding the right fat burners to your program gives you an extra edge that may be needed to jumpstart your weight loss. Here are my recommendations when it comes to the supplements you should be adding to your plan—your fat loss stack.
KNOCKOUT PUNCH #1: LYNFIT CUTTING EDGE
LynFit Cutting Edge does exactly what the name indicates—gives you the cutting edge when it comes to fat loss. This blended supplement contains the most effective ingredients in the exact amounts your body needs for effective, advanced fat burning, without stimulants or harmful ingredients.
LynFit Cutting Edge contains over a dozen of the most effective fat loss nutrients, but in this article, I will cover only a few (more on the remaining ingredients later).
Nutrients found in LynFit Cutting Edge are also involved in the metabolism of fats and the conversion of protein and fat into usable energy, so you use more (burn it off) and store less. Without these fat loss nutrients, your body cannot adequately metabolize fat, unless you're one of those lucky ones who lives naturally lean without trying (not me!).
B vitamins (also known as B Lean nutrients) activate the fat loss process while helping your body break down and utilize the food you eat.
Choline: The B vitamin is the first fat burning soldier among the lipotropic ingredients. Its main function is to regulate the amount of fat that accumulates in the liver. The liver is one of the body's storage sites for excess fat. Choline also helps to emulsify cholesterol, preventing it from up artery walls or the gall bladder. Furthermore, Choline helps rid the body of toxins, poisons, and any drug residues. This especially important as these toxins can prevent or slow fat loss.
Everyone, especially any family members that aren't eating right, should be on this health-protecting supplement. While LynFit Cutting Edge is a great fat burner, it's also a great health builder.
Inositol: Inositol is Choline's partner-in-crime and is closely related. This nutrient stimulates the body's production of lecithin—a lipid-based component in the body that transports fat from the liver to the cells to be used as energy. Inositol is an important player because it regulates the fat metabolism, allowing you to get lean more quickly while your body stays healthier. Inositol also helps to reduce cholesterol by preventing build-up in the arteries that lead to narrowing.
L-Carnitine: L-Carnitine is one of the very best fat burners. It is made by the body but can also be found in foods; namely, the ones you shouldn't be eating if you're trying to get lean—such as red meat. That's why supplementing is critical when it comes to fat loss. L-Carnitine's main function is to transport fat that's floating around and carry it into the cells to be burned off as energy. That how it got its name, "The Transporter."
This is even more important if you work out because it snags fat while it's circulating around after you've worked out and makes sure it gets transported into the cells and burned off instead of being re-stored. When we work out, there's no guarantee that the fat that's released is burned off. That's why even the leanest fitness models and bodybuilders take (2) LynFit Cutting Edge before they work out, and again afterward, despite their diets being as lean as possible. (Did you know that even the leanest foods can be converted to fat if you overeat?)
L-Carnitine is a superstar because it also stimulates the adrenal glands, aiding in reducing inflammation, further helping the body use its stored fat as fuel.
L-Carnitine also helps repair muscles, joints, and the liver—good news if you're trying to get lean or have heart disease.
Chromium: Adding this mineral to LynFit Cutting Edge is a no-brainer because it's been shown to help reduce blood sugar levels/glucose tolerance. Why is that important? Helping your body deal with glucose means that glucose gets transported to be burned off and used for energy instead of being stored as body fat. This keeps energy levels balanced, avoiding low blood sugar levels.
To make a long story short—fat loss is almost impossible unless you manage your blood sugar levels. The more weight you have to lose, and the more fat you store around your stomach, hips, and thighs, the more you need help when it comes to jumpstarting your weight loss and melting fat from your body.....no matter how much you exercise.
This is one of the most overlooked steps when it comes to weight loss. It's actually what makes LynFit programs different from all the rest. It's why they work so much faster. LynFit programs attack the source of the problem—it's all about blood sugar. If you can lower your blood sugar levels, you will lose weight. However, we live in the real world, and we don't always eat like we're supposed to. That's where a little support from the smart use of safe supplements comes in.
Here are sample metabolic boosting usage schedules. Take note to always take your supplements with a full glass of water, and drink it all. Better yet, open the capsules and pour the contents in your LynFit Complete Protein Shake for maximum absorption. (NOTE: This may change the flavor of your shake a little so practice first and make sure you can handle it.)
Metabolic Boosting Usage
(1) LynFit Cutting Edge 3x daily: Breakfast, Lunch, 3 p.m.
(1) LynFit Carb Edge 3x daily along with LynFit Cutting Edge
Advanced Fat Loss
Add (1) LynFit Cutting Edge before you work and again at 3 p.m.
Take (1) LynFit Carb Ege 2–3 times daily — lunch time and 3 p.m.
Bodybuilding/Muscle Up to Melt Fat
Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge before and after you work out
Take (1) LynFit Carb Edge with breakfast and again at lunch
Cheat Day: Everyone should take as follows
(1) LynFit Cutting Edge with breakfast, (1) again at lunch, and another (1) right before you cheat
(1) LynFit Carb Edge at lunch and (2) before your cheat meal to block the unwanted carbs from being absorbed without causing any dietary distress
This also helps to keep your blood sugar levels in check, so it's like eating more and storing less. Can you say prevention?
Cheat days are the most important days to make sure and take your supplements. It's best to take them 30 minutes before you indulge. What's more important is that you take them even if it's after or during your upzig (planned cheat) to offset any damage you may be doing.
For even more optimal results, add (1) capsule of LynFit Accelerator at breakfast and again at lunch to accelerate the fat burning process while helping to keep hunger and cravings at a manageable level.

KNOCKOUT PUNCH #3: LYNFIT PURE OMEGA 3
Add LynFit Pure Omega 3 to the mix and you're really going to see and feel the difference. Even your doctor will notice the difference the next time you have blood drawn. You'll be healthfully nourished, and here's why: The omegas found in fatty fish and LynFit Pure Omega 3 are a very special dietary fat that has a long list of health benefits—too many to list here in this article.
One of the many benefits is that it's helpful when it comes to melting fat in stubborn areas. The DHA and EPA that this high-level Omega 3 contains help speed up the loss of body fat while preserving lean muscle tissue when trying to lose weight, keeping the metabolism from slowing down.
Unlike eating fats, Omega 3 is almost never stored as body fat. Even if you're eating fatty fish such as salmon twice weekly it's still a good idea to add LynFit Pure Omega 3 to your stacking strategy. LynFit Pure Omega 3 is unique in that it contains the exact amounts of DHA and EPA your body needs. It is purified (that's how it got its name) to remove any contaminants so all you get is an Omega 3 that's so pure you'll see and feel the difference the very first time you take it.
Store-bought brands don't deliver these results, and that's the very reason you'll never find a LynFit product in any store. We refuse to lower the quality, and we keep our standards too high for any store to make a profit. My whole family takes LynFit Pure Omega 3, even our five dogs, two ferrets, and a hedgehog—all rescues. Only LynFit Pure Omega 3 contains the ultra-concentrated natural marine lipids, which is where Omega 3 fatty acids are found in pharmaceutical dosed recommendations. Not all commercially available Omega 3s have the fats you need, and some may even contain the fats you don't need.
Take the test and see for yourself. In two weeks of taking LynFit Pure Omega 3, you'll be able to see the dramatic results of cholesterol and triglyceride lowering effect on your blood tests. The doctor will wonder what you've been doing to get those results.
I suggest you take 1–2 LynFit Pure Omega 3 daily. I take mine at 3 p.m. with my afternoon Complete Protein Shake to help balance blood sugar levels, boost mood, and keep me feeling full, so I don't end up snacking. I take another at bedtime along with my LynFit Lean Sleep to help me sleep deeper and stay asleep longer without waking up. Taking it at night also helps my body repair while I'm sleeping, so I wake up less achy.
I hope you have a great summer and keep it lean!
P.S. Hopefully you're drinking LynFit Complete Protein Shakes for breakfast to boost your metabolism by 25 percent and block cortisol levels (stress hormones that stop fat loss). Make sure you're not adding almond milk or fruit to them. You want your body to stay in constant fat loss mode, helping you stay lean while you're enjoying life in the real world.
Only LynFit Complete Protein is ultra-purified to remove the lactose (the sugar found in most protein shakes, yogurts, and smoothies that cause stomach distress and is better used for weight gain). This quality and purity are what make LynFit Complete Protein the very best protein you can buy. If you're not seeing results, you're not using LynFit.
LynFit Complete Protein contains the highest amount of leucine, which is critical to losing weight and keeping it off. Leucine is used to help the body manufacture the mini acid, alanine. Alanine is used to produce glucose in the liver which means you have more fuel circulating in your body while you're dieting, helping to spare your muscles from being used as fuel; also known as muscle wasting.
LynFit is also the only company who uses the same high quality, ultra-filtered, whey protein in their protein bars. Other protein bars use the whey that is thrown away to reduce costs, but it also reduces their effectiveness when it comes to losing weight and shedding body fat.
That's the LynFit Difference!
