Boost Mood And Lose Belly Fat Fast
Everything we eat has an effect on our mood and either boosts metabolism or damages it. Here are 5 things that you can do right now to boost your mood and your metabolism. These techniques also help reverse damage caused by stress, unhealthy eating habits and a lack of metabolic boosting exercise.
By making a few simple adjustments to your diet you'll feel better fast and your pants will fit better as these tricks help melt abdominal fat while lifting your spirits. I know that when I feel better I eat better and the benefits can be huge, and fast!
- Avoid Skipping Meals At All Cost
Here's a great solution; never leave home without a LynFit Lean Bar! I'm addicted to them because they supply all of the nutrition our brains and bodies need, but the best part is how they taste. They are irresistibly delicious and hit the spot with a cup of green tea. LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar that can help you reduce belly fat because they are so clean.
- Stay Hydrated
- Forget Moderation
Moderation doesn't work! Most of us struggle to moderate "trigger" foods (almost always carbs and sugar) and when we eat them it makes us crave them even more. Trying to moderately eat foods that trigger us to eat more almost always sends us into an eating binge that leaves us feeling worse than we did before we ate.
If you absolutely must eat, reach for foods like steamed vegetables and salmon, or make Hot Chocolate with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake and sit down and read a good book or watch something that will make you laugh. Whatever you do, food is the problem not the solution. The good news is the "crazy cravings" are like mini-panic/anxiety attacks and they never last more than 5 minutes. You can survive 5 minutes!
And, don't forget to take LynFit Carb Edge regularly if you struggle with extreme hunger and cravings. It not only helps with cravings, it also blocks the unwanted carbs from being broken down into sugar and stored as fat. I suggest taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge at 11am and another at 2pm to help you through the rough times.
- Get A Boost From "Good Mood" Supplements
Certain nutrients can give you just the boost you need to get through those "tough" days. Nutrients such as amino acids (found in the LynFit Complete Protein Shake and LynFit Lean Bars) have been known to boost serotonin levels in the brain which contributes to feelings of optimism and calm.
Need more of a boost? Add B-Complex. Stress depletes our bodies of B-Vitamins creating a need for more. LynFit Cutting Edge, LynFit Carb Edge, and LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones all contain B-Complex that will not only boost your mood but also help your body burn calories while supplying you with natural energy, enhancing fat loss and curbing cravings (emotional cravings too).
Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake for breakfast and (1) LynFit Carb Edge at 11am and 2pm.
- Elevate Mood And Reduce Anxiety And Depression
This trick helps balance blood sugar so it's another way to kill cravings before they begin while helping me to melt off stubborn belly fat. I suggest taking (1) LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm and again before bed. Food won't get you the amount of DHA and EPA that's needed for results. Be sure to look for at least 500 DHA and 500 EPA for maximum results. LynFit's Pure Omega-3 contains the right amount of pharmaceutical-grade Omega-3 and is purified to remove impurities so you'll see results right away and you'll feel better fast.
Still in a funk? I get it! I struggle with depression and anxiety myself and these tips have saved me. But it's important to be consistent with your health and don't forget to add exercise.

What Your Body Is Telling You When It Aches
"ITIS" means it's coming from inflammation. Whether it's sinusitis, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, or fibromyalgia, your body is telling you it needs additional nutrients to heal. Believe it or not, pain is positive as it's your body's way of saying "you're not taking care of me!" As we age or overdo it, our bodies require very specific nutrients daily, and lots of them, to get the job done. This makes your diet and supplement program more important than ever!
But what you may not know is that all of those over-the-counter pain meds (especially prescriptions meds) may be part of the reason you ache. Not to mention, they slow down your metabolism. Pain medications block the healing process, versus helping it and may cause rebound pain. Now, I'm not suggesting that you stop cold turkey. But I am suggesting that you begin treating your pain with a more natural holistic approach. This approach will make you feel better fast and save you time and money!
Here are SIX things your body is telling you when it hurts:
- GET UP and MOVE Every day to help remove toxins and bring fresh blood into the area! Don't repeat the same activity that hurt you. Stretching, gentle walking or indoor bicycling works wonders. Do LynFit's Recovery and stretch daily at the pace that feels right for your body.
- DRINK MORE WATER than you think you need. Our bodies need 8-10 glasses of water daily but when we ached we require more to help flush the toxins out. Drink more water and sip hot tea with lemon to help with the emotional side of joint pain and promote faster healing. Aim for 12 glasses of water daily and try floating a lemon or lime wedge in your water to add flavor and make you crave it. You'll drink more.
- Take Pure Omega 3 daily even if you eat salmon 2 times a week! Did you know that taking Omega 3 every day can alleviate joint pain and soreness? LynFit's Pure Omega 3 is unlike any other you can buy at a store because it's purified to remove contaminants that cause joint pain and is always free of saturated fats found in less expensive brands! Now you know why the store-bought brands are so cheap and I gotta tell you that these benefits can only be seen when the right amounts of EPA and DHA are present. You need at least 600mg of EPA and DHA to get these benefits! As you can see HERE, LynFit's Pure Omega meets and or exceeds those levels! When taking LynFit's Pure Omega you'll see and feel the results within 2 weeks!
- DUMP the olive oil. Eating too much olive oil can actually exacerbate joint pain because it contains Omega 6 which decreases your helpful Omega 3, causing joint pain. The only essential fat we are deficient in is Omega 3. So drop all other fats such as olive oil, flax, avocados, nuts and seeds, as they all contribute to weight gain and more joint pain. Even essential fats cause weight gain and add to our waistlines and need to be reduced!
- LOSE WEIGHT drinking a Complete Protein Shake! Losing 5-10 pounds can make a world of difference when it comes to joint pain and getting relief! When we lose weight we release a pressure valve that relieves body pains almost instantly. Every extra pound increases the load on your joints three to five times, so you you're increasing your pain and risk of developing osteoporosis many times being overweight. Lose weight fast be drinking a Complete Protein Shake daily for breakfast to BLOCK pain causing cortisol from rising. Nourish your body with every amino acid it needs for healing and repair.
- BLOCK Carbs and Sugar! High blood sugar levels cause pain to elevate! Following the Slimmer By Dinner Meal Plan keeps blood sugar levels low. That's why it helps you lose weight fast. What else can you do if your blood sugar levels are high? It's also helpful to take (1) Carb Edge before meals, especially the "NOT SO GOOD" ones. Clinical research show it BLOCKS 65% of unwanted carbs from being digested, so they aren't absorbed and they don't raise blood sugar levels. Carb Edge quickly lowers blood sugar levels that contribute to joint pain and will also help you conquer cravings!
If you are one of those people who suffer with daily aches and pains you may want to add LynFit's Recovery Agent as a daily defense. Recovery Agent is a multivitamin and joint healing supplements wrapped into one!

Here is the supplement protocol to re-boot your metabolism and it's what I put people on when they see me in person:
STEP THREE: Add metabolic boosting exercise with my Metabolic Boosting DVD Series 3 days a week and do cardio on off days and you'll be buffed in no time!
PLEASE NOTE: Weight loss results vary by individual. One pound loss per day results are typical when the plan is followed only with LynFit products. Any deviation with other products may impact your results as we don't know what's in those products, only what's in the LynFit product line, which are geared for metabolic boosting and weight loss and are meant to be used together.
Caving to Carbs?
We live in a stressed out society and that's the #1 reason we crave exactly what we shouldn't eat! Food is the problem, NOT the solution! Try taking an exercise break instead, or a nap, until the cravings subside and you can make a sensible choice that you won't regret later.
The TOP two reasons we crave are:
1. Not Enough Protein
Make sure you have had your LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Missed it? Have it NOW! Cravings are a sign your body is missing something and I can assure you it's not chocolate or cookies! ALMOST all of us fall short when it comes to consuming enough protein. Did you know we need 1 gram per pound of lean body mass per day of LEAN protein (click HERE to read blog article)? Only LynFit Complete Protein Shake contains high grade whey that blocks cravings and cortisol - the hormone that's released when we are stressed that causes us to crave more and store fat and stops weight loss.
Are you so stressed you need to chew? Chew a LynFit Lean Bar! It's the only protein bar on the market specifically designed for weight loss because it contains the same high grade whey protein the LynFit Complete Protein Shake is made with!
2. We Need Water!
Many cravings aren't food cravings at all because we need to hydrate. Drink a tall glass of water or ice water, or try hot tea with lemon as it kills cravings! Sip as much as you need until it passes. Did you know that you're supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water EVERY DAY? So, if you weigh 120, you need at least 60 ounces of water a day and COFFEE DOESN'T COUNT! Try floating lemons or limes in a tall pitcher and leave it out so you're tempted to drink from it every time you pass by it.
That being said, we all have trained our bodies to tell us when to eat versus teaching them how to burn fat for fuel instead. Make sure you're following the Cutting Edge eating plan found in my Fitness and Nutrition Guide so that you can curb cravings before they begin and lose 1 pound a day!
Three things you can do to prevent cravings:
Smart supplements taken at specific times can create a feeling of fullness and turn your hunger switch off!
1. Have a Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar for breakfast because it boosts your metabolism 25%. It not only delivers THE VERY BEST source of protein for your body that helps you lose belly fat, but it also helps you lose weight right away while you're learning how to eat for weight loss. A study from the Pennington Bio-Medical Research Center in Louisiana found that people who eat Protein for breakfast are more likely to feel full during the day than those who eat cereal or other grains.
2. Take (1) Carb Edge at lunch to balance blood sugar. Balancing blood sugar is the secret to balancing cravings! LynFit's Carb Edge is loaded with different fat burning nutrients blended together that will keep your body in fat burning mode versus fat storing mode. The best part - it contains white kidney bean extract called Phase 2 that literally paralyzes the enzymes that digest starch. So carbs cannot be broken down into sugar. The Phase 2 kidney bean extract has been clinically shown to reduce starch digestion and promote weight loss. It works by temporarily binding with the enzyme that digests starch, preventing a portion of the carbohydrates from being broken down into sugar and stored as fat. One capsule taken before a "cheat" meal can block up to 65% of unwanted carbs from being absorbed without causing gastric distress, according to a study published in the Nutrition Business Journal.
3. Take Omega-3 at 3pm or 1 hour before cravings usually start. The good fat takes a while to digest, so taking it prior to the snack hour will shut off your hunger quickly!
