Green And Lean: The Metabolic Boosting System Works

I am blessed to receive hundreds of emails every week from people just like you who are right in the middle of a struggle to lose weight, regain self-confidence, or maybe just need a little boost to get over a metabolism hump. I take all of those emails very seriously. No one email is more important than another. I've learned through all my years of experience that what might seem small or trivial to one person is a giant albatross to someone else. In my world there is no such thing as a silly question or insignificant issue. They're all important. That's why I take the time to answer each one as quickly and honestly as I possibly can.

Every once in a while I will receive an email from someone that just really hits me where I live. It may be from someone who is going through, or has gone through, similar circumstances to what I had to overcome. Other times it may be an email from someone who feels completely alone in their weight loss journey and needs to know that they are not peculiar or weird. In fact, if the truth were known, those people are probably more like the majority of us than they'd ever know. And then there are those times when I receive a letter or email from someone who has come full circle - from searching for the right answers to finding and utilizing them to reach their personal goals. All of these; the ones searching, the ones needing assurance, the overcomers - That, is what I live for.

Today I'd like to share one with you that I recently received that really hit home. It reinforced to me that I am doing what is intended of me. I think when you read it you'll see a lot of points that will fit into your own life. Here's Leisa Hipsher's story.....  

_________________________

Leisa Hipsher B&A"My name is Leisa Hipsher. Most of my adult life I have been health conscious, watching what I eat and moderate exercise. Always being interested in the latest way to stay "healthy" caused me to cycle through several diet programs. While I was never clinically obese, I would fluctuate up or down a size through my 20's and 30's. Then my lifestyle changed. My new career required traveling. Eating in hotels and restaurants became the norm. To offset those calories I would try to balance it with the current fad of shakes and smoothies. But moving up 2 sized was inevitable. This, along with now being in my 40's resulted in the new hunt for the latest "fad". What I found was the perfect solution.

Lisa Lynn was being interviewed on Better TV and I was intrigued with her straightforward system. She emphasized the cornerstone of her program was the delicious Complete Protein Shake that she used for Martha Stewart when she was her trainer for 13 years. Martha even helped her develop the yummy taste. Well, I was hooked. Being a shake girl most of my life, I knew I could make this work. Lisa became a huge resource of information and explained why I would fluctuate between sizes. Most of my protein shake choices were soy based and used fruit. Lisa explained how and why using whey protein is the best choice for losing weight. Her philosophy was not a fad, but based on science. I began her Metabolic Boosting System right away.Alkalinity Shake Ingredients

It fit perfectly into my busy lifestyle. I don't have to think about meal planning; she's done it for me. I have a shake for breakfast and most days also for lunch. I love the Alkalinity Shake recipe found in her book, "The Metabolism Solution". Putting the ingredients in baggies makes it effortless. All I need to do is throw them into a blender along with the Complete Protein Powder and I've got a delicious green smoothie with no fruit. If I'm traveling I will make them ahead of time and keep in my cooler. How easy is that? She even has safe supplements and metabolic workouts that are fast, effective, and make it easy to stay consistent.
 



 
Her program helped me lose 25 pounds. I have maintained that loss for 3 years simply by making it a lifestyle. Lisa has become a wonderful friend and mentor. Did I mention we've never met or talked on the phone? She's coached me completely through emails. She has such a big heart and believes in answering all correspondence herself. Now that's commitment!

For someone who is almost 50 with a stubborn metabolism this is fabulous. Lisa is the real deal. And if Martha thinks "it's a good thing", then that's good enough for me.
 
Now it's your turn. Just try it. If you follow the program you will lose weight. And Lisa will be there every step of the way to cheer you on. Find out how the Metabolic Boosting lifestyle rocks for yourself. Be good to you for once!" 

Favorite go-to workout: The Metabolic Booster Workout from Leaner Lifestyle 1.

In my fridge you'll find: Baggies with spinach, celery, cucumber, lemon and ginger - ready to go for Alkalinity Shakes. In my freezer, plenty of white fish.

My favorite trick for staying motivated: Emailing Lisa and obsessing over the LynFit YouTube channel.

Favorite LynFit supplement: Hands down - the Complete Protein Shake, and Carb Edge, and Omega 3, and.......... LOL!

Biggest obstacle: Sugar, but I have learned how to offset it with Protein Shakes and quickly get back on track.

Exercising With Injuries



It's never a good idea to not exercise. There are no excuses. And it doesn't matter how much snow you've shoveled this winter - you've got to work out lifting weights. You have to keep your body moving. Sitting has become the new smoking. It's time to get up off the couch and move. No matter what is ailing you, exercise is the remedy. If you have aches and pains or ongoing injuries you can still get in the exercise you need. You just have to do things a little differently.

One of the beauties of doing metabolic workouts is that you can do them even if you have injuries or aches and pains. Metabolic workouts will help prevent further injury. You don't need to go to the gym to do them so you can kiss the "I can't get out because of the weather" excuse good bye. Metabolic workouts build lean muscles which are calorie burning factories. 

Metabolic workouts = Lean Muscle = Calorie Burning Factories = Lean Bodies

Metabolic workouts should be performed 3 days per week, with one day in between for rest and muscle recovery. You can also add cardiovascular activity every day for maximum fat loss. 

Here are 3 specific workouts that have been modified for people who may be suffering from injuries or aches and pains:

MODIFIED DEEP CHAIR SQUATS TO DUMBBELL FRONT RAISE (1:45 mark of the video above)

Sit on sofa or chair
Place feet shoulder width apart
Hold dumbbell in front
Use your heels to push off and up into a standing position
Raise dumbbells to nose level

Aim for 15-20 repetitions x2 sets

SEATED ARM CURL (2:45 mark of the video above)

While seated, hold dumbbell
Pin elbows to your side
Do seated dumbbell curls
Turn arms out for correct posture

Aim for 15-20 repetitions x2 sets

SEATED TRICEP SLAM BACKS (3:25 mark of the video above)

Sit in chair with stomach in
Hold dumbbells in hands
Push dumbbells backwards
Keep posture in check
Elbows pinned, tight core

Aim for 20 repetitions x2 sets

We all love to see results from any effort. Doing these metabolic workouts, with the weights, allow you to see results right away. If you don't, try going up just a bit on the weight level. This is especially important for women. 

For complete information regarding Metabolic Workouts you can refer to my book, "The Metabolism Solution". I can promise you that you will never regret working out with LynFit Metabolic Workouts.

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!

Blast Fat Faster: It's Easier Than You Think

Click on the image above to view the exercises described below

If your weight loss has plateaued and no matter what you do you just can’t seem to lose weight your workout might be to blame. If you’re trying to lose weight and boost your metabolism you need to work out in a specific way in order to accomplish this quickly. You need a metabolic workout.

Why should you care about boosting your metabolism? Boosting your metabolism makes losing weight faster and easier while a sluggish metabolism can stop your weight loss dead in its tracks no matter how hard you try. Keep in mind that your diet is responsible for 90% of your weight loss and your workout makes up the last 10%. Specifically if you're over 40, female (this counts for males too), and are more than 10 pounds overweight and have struggled with high blood sugar levels, which cause you to store excess belly fat.

There are tons of different workouts out there but not all of them are geared for weight loss and reshaping.  Most are geared to build muscle and can actually slow your metabolism while halting your weight loss efforts due to the stress they cause on your body. This may cause your cortisol and insulin levels to rise, creating the prefect storm for weight gain and storing belly fat. In other words - a disaster. 

Metabolic workouts can turbo charge your metabolism allowing you to see results in as little as a week and begin losing 1 pound per day. 

Why are metabolic workouts different? Not only do they reshape your body they also make losing weight easier. Think of it as the way gas can ignite a small fire into a raging inferno. All without hurting your body so you can stay on track for the rest of your life. 

Who should do metabolic workouts? Anyone who wants to lose weight and quickly reshape their body without adding lots of bulk. 

Here are 3 moves to be done in 1 complete metabolic workout 3 times weekly (the total time to complete this workout is less than 30 minutes). There is no gym required so you not only save time, but money as well. Blast your fat away with these 3 simple steps.

    • Deep Squats to Dumbbell Front Raise (2:00 mark in the video above): Stand with your feet shoulder width apart holding the dumbbell in front of your body. Squat down deep and stand back up using your heels to push off while raising the dumbbell at the same time to nose level. This move works the entire body while firming the legs, abs and shoulders.

      Do 2 sets of 12-15 reps. Lift as heavily as you can, making sure to use good form.

    • Tricep Slam Backs (2:35 mark in the video above): Stand with feet shoulder width apart while holding the dumbbells. Step back while pushing the dumbbells backwards as if you're trying to hit a wall. Keep your posture in check and hold your core tight. This move tightens and tones the stomach muscles, the back of the arms and reshapes the legs.

      Do 2 sets of 12-15 reps on each side. Lift as heavily as you can, making sure to use good form.
    • Side Lunge with Arm Curl (3:15 mark in the video above): Lunge to the side with dumbbells in hand. Lower yourself until your leg is parallel to the floor, making sure your knee doesn't go over your toe, while pinning your elbow to your inside knee. Perform dumbbell curls while in the low lunge position. This move works your inner thigh, core and arms while improving balance.

      Do 2 sets of 12-15 using as heavy a weight as you can safely handle while maintaining good form.

    Metabolic workoutsshould be performed 3 days a week allowing one day in between for rest and muscle recovery. This is the re-shaping and metabolic boosting part of your workout. Don’t forget to add cardiovascular activity every day for maximum fat loss, especially if you have been over 20 pounds overweight. Being overweight puts your body in a special category and requires a special type of workout and time required.

    For more information about Metabolic Boosting Workouts please refer to my book, "The Metabolism Solution".

     

    Wouldn't You LOVE To Lose Weight Faster And Melt Belly Fat?


    LOVE To Lose WeightSo, you've got the holiday weight gain still hanging around and now we've got Valentine's Day with all its chocolate coming up. Maybe you feel stuck. You feel like you're doing everything you can and you're just kind of stuck on that plateau. Wouldn't you LOVE to switch your fat cells from being stuck in "store" mode to "burn" mode? Your first step may not necessarily be making huge, drastic changes. It's the little things you start doing, one by one, and just doing them that will begin to make the difference you're looking for.

    Fat cells do have a purpose. They release different hormones that play a role in everything from managing energy, controlling your weight, regulating mood to appetite. Believe it or not, fat cells are not your enemy. The trick is to get them to start acting like a thin person's fat cells in the "burn" mode rather than the "store" mode.

    Here are 3 simple steps anyone can do to get their fat cells to go from "store" to "burn":

     

    EAT THERMOGENICALLY: We all want fast, easy weight loss and it's guaranteed to happen if you eat thermogenically. I could dive   into great details about thermogenic eating, and do in my book The Metabolism Solution, but let's start with one of those "little" things that I talked about above - Drink a whey protein shake every day. My LynFit Completed Protein Advanced Non GMO Whey has the lowest fat and carbs you'll find in any high quality shake. It not only boosts your metabolism, it also re-calibrates your appetite. So while you're learning how to eat thermogenically you're losing weight at the same time. Sort of like getting paid for on the job training. 

    EXERCISE METABOLICALLY: Put the brakes on weight gain and put the pedal to the metal on weight loss. There are weight loss workouts and then there are metabolic workouts. Metabolic workouts specifically boost your metabolism where others can actually cause weight gain. 3 days a week 30 minutes each is all you need and these can be done in the privacy of your own home. All of my LynFit metabolic workouts can be found in The Metabolism Solution.

    MELT FAT WITH FUDGE: Yes, you read that correctly - Melt Fat with Fudge. But not just any fudge. It's all about swapping out the foods you can't live without with a better option. All you need is my protein powder, honey and just a bit of oatmeal. Mixed together, formed into balls and frozen, you've got the perfect substitute for when you're craving chocolate. Just thaw and pop in your mouth and you're out of that junk food funk. This recipe and other dessert favorites can be found in The Metabolism Solution.

      So rather than trying to take giant leaps at one time, take it one step at a time and learn to do the little things that will help you lose weight faster and burn belly fat. Make sure and watch the video above with NBC CT for even more details on getting your fat cells into burn mode.

      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.
