Enjoy Some Of Your Favorite Foods Without Gaining Weight
The secret to your weight loss success depends on what you do before and after you cheat. It's the off meals and cheats that determine whether you lose or gain weight. In today's world of overeating excess sugars, carbs, and fats. no one's weight stays the same without some sort of plan and system in place to guard against weight gain. The 5-day diet plan is perfect for anyone who has trouble sticking to a plan and needs to lose weight. It even allows you to enjoy some of your favorite foods without gaining weight.
The problem begins with underestimating guilty indulgences and telling yourself, "I only ate a little too much." That "little" bit can quickly add up to more than you think.
LYNFIT FACTOID: Did you know that most calorie trackers are off by 78 percent when it comes to caloric intake and expenditure? If you're not losing weight, underestimating your caloric intake, especially on cheat days, may be why.
Believe it or not, cheat days can be part of a successful weight loss plan IF you follow a few specific steps. It can provide a metabolic and psychological boost, as well as stimulating your thyroid gland because it allows your body to get a break from the plan you’ve been sticking to all week. This upzig, a.k.a. cheat day principle can become a diet game-changer, allowing yourself the wiggle room to keep the weight off. This technique allowed me to lose 40 pounds and keep it off for over 20 years now.
Simply stated, follow your normal LynFit Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan for 5 days prior to your cheat day. Then you can upzig your diet, enjoying some of your favorite foods, without gaining weight.
Allowing myself a cheat day removed the guilt and shame that I was feeling, creating a vicious cycle of more binging and punishing myself. The secret is for you to control the food versus it controlling you!
Every diet out there will teach you how to eat, but they won’t show you how to cheat without wrecking your diet. Let’s face it…we’re all going to cheat every occasionally, so why not do it correctly, in a way that will benefit you? Cheating, the right way, can be your weight loss’ best friend if done correctly following these seven cheat day tips.
The LynFit metabolic boosting system is the only plan that's designed with reality eating and cheating, while still allowing you to lose weight.
#1: CHOOSE YOUR CHEAT DAY (a.k.a. UPZIGGING—A POSITIVE WAY TO INCREASE CALORIES)
Decide each week, ahead of time, which day you want to make your cheat day. This will give you something to look forward to, turning deprivation into delayed gratification. No one likes to be told they “can’t” have something, so knowing you only have to wait five days makes passing up the not-so-healthy foods easier. In other words, keep a cheat day schedule. Even though you may be taking a day off your diet, you still need that structure to help keep you safe in the same way guard rails on the highway help protect you and keep you inside the lines.
#2: AIM FOR AT LEAST FIVE DAYS OF DIETING (a.k.a. DOWNZIGGING—INTERMITTENT FASTING)
Following your meal plan for five days will help fire up your metabolism. That way, you won’t gain weight when you go off-plan. A good recommendation is to cheat on either a Saturday or Sunday and hop right back on your plan the very next day. The younger you are (under age 30), you can get away with a lot more. As you age, your metabolism slows, and the margin for error is decreased.
Downzigging lowers calories while boosting your metabolism. LynFit's system makes this easy.
#3: THINK LOW-CALORIE, CARB, & FAT FOR FIVE DAYS
Fats and carbs will always be the go-to food when you cheat, so decreasing them before you cheat is the best way to budget your calories. It also sets your body up to burn fat faster. It’s a great weight loss and fat-burning approach that’s beneficial for health and anti-aging. The easiest way to accomplish this is to replace two meals daily with Egg White Protein (provides the highest quality protein in the exact amounts needed, making it ideal for downzigging) or LynFit Whey Protein. Have one at breakfast and another at lunch to boost your metabolism by up to 25 percent, so your body is burning more calories. Protein also blunts insulin spikes and makes you feel fuller longer.
#4: THINK BEFORE YOU CHEAT
Don’t let your cheat day turn into an all-out, all-day binge. Odds are, that if you need to lose weight, your food perceptions may be off, so it’s best to proceed with caution. Avoid eating with people who encourage gorging (their body weight will probably tell you everything you need to know) and don’t eat at locations that allow you to eat mindlessly. Often, eating in your car, eating while watching television, or eating while standing in front of the refrigerator can be danger zones. Don’t eat straight out of a bag or carton, and set some “selfie” rules, such as:
- Sit down
- Plate your food (a small plate is best)
- Chew your food 60 times for proper digestion to occur
- Put your fork down between bites
- Don’t eat and talk
You want to focus on what you’re eating, so embrace every bite!
#5: DON’T SKIP MEALS TO COMPENSATE FOR YOUR CHEAT DAY
Skipping meals slows down your metabolism which is the last thing you want to do. You do, however, want to lower your daily caloric and fat intake. This is best done using the two LynFit Shakes to replace your current meals. This will keep your metabolism fires running hot. Drinking the shakes will also help to block the cortisol levels that can wreak havoc on your waistline.
#6: YOU’VE GOTTA BOOST, BLOCK, & BURN
You have to convince your body to boost metabolism, block carbs and fats while burning off what you eat versus storing it as fat. LynFit Accelerator Advanced was born for this very reason! Take at least one (1) Accelerator Advanced first thing in the morning and then again at lunch. On your cheat day, take an additional Accelerator Advanced to help combat cravings and keep your metabolism fires blazing. It’s best to take 30 minutes prior to indulging to block the absorption of fats and carbs without harmful side-effects.
Accelerator Advanced provides extra metabolic support through its thermogenic formula by boosting your metabolic rate and balancing blood sugar levels that help you lose weight faster and kill cravings for the wrong foods, while also preventing new fat cells from being formed.
LynFit Accelerator Advanced contains a unique blend of ingredients, inspired by nature and perfected by LynFit Nutrition.
- Raspberry Ketones — Supports appetite control and mood enhancement
- Forskolin — Promotes thyroid health
- Green Tea Extract —Supports and encourages calorie and fat-burning
- L-Tyrosine — Helps reduce stress hormones in the body
- Banaba Leaf Extract — Helps balance blood sugar levels
- White Kidney Bean Extract — Helps block the absorption of carbs
- Guggul Extract — Stimulates metabolism and lowers cholesterol
- Cocoa Bean Extract — Helps suppress appetite and shed water weight
NOTE: It's a good idea to bump up and take two (2) additional Accelerator Advanced on your cheat day and the day after...or anytime you feel your body needs more.
#7: DETOX, CLEANSE, & RESTORE
Take (2-3) Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore once or twice daily as needed for digestion. This will help reduce belly bloat and waste build-up, so you’ll feel lighter and energized, even on your cheat day. This cleanse is very different than all the rest. It contains digestive enzymes that help you digest and assimilate your food, so you’ll have less gastric distress that can often occur when eating off-plan—you’ll suffer a lot less.
Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore helps to jumpstart your metabolism and promote weight loss by removing unwanted toxins. The better your body digests food, the more your body will be able to absorb and fully benefit from the nutrients you’re feeding it. And the more nutrients you absorb, the less fat your body will store. Your liver will thank you!
DON'T FORGET YOUR OTHER LYNFIT SUPPLEMENTS: Cheat day is the most important time to use all your other LynFit metabolic-boosting supplements. Don’t leave home without them. They will help boost, block, protect, and nourish—especially on your cheat day. You’d never take the race tires off a race car on race day, would you? So you shouldn’t stop using the weight loss tools that are particularly beneficial to you on not-so-good eating days. Take them with you…vacation, backyard barbecue, or the local restaurant. They just may well be a weight loss lifesaver!

Simple Mistakes That Stop Weight Loss
"Eat less, move more"—whether you're trying to lose weight, melt fat, or muscle up, I'm sure you've heard this advice before. But losing weight, burning off stubborn fat, or gaining lean muscle isn't as easy as it sounds. Especially if you're over age 30 and you'be been losing and regaining weight for most of your life.
The truth is that in today's world of over-processed foods and ginormous portions most people struggle to lose weight. If you've endlessly been working to lose weight but haven't seen any significant results, you're probably making one of these mistakes.
You're Starving Your Body of the Protein it Needs
This has nothing to do with starving yourself, but it does have to do with starving your muscles and feeding your fat cells, which slows down your metabolic rate, making you soft and flabby (including your face). Think of it this way, would you be able to build a bonfire if you didn't have enough of the right kind of wood? Absolutely not!
Your metabolism works the same way, with the same concept. It's not going to magically begin to increase the right amount of specific nutrients to start burning fat again, which increases your likelihood of losing weight. This means that protein needs to become your priority and you'll need sufficient amounts of it.
Most of us get too much of the wrong kind of protein—hard to digest, high in fat, and wrong kind of carbs. Yet we wonder why we can't seem to lose weight or melt off that stubborn body fat. The fact is if you don't consume enough of the right foods, your metabolism is being turned off versus being turned on. This leads to your body not being able to use the calories you're feeding it, so they get stored, and you keep gaining weight, or not losing. Every calorie you eat is either used for repair or to make hair, skin, nails, and preserve or grow lean muscle tissue—or it's stored. It's that simple.
Remember this the next time you go off on an eating frenzy, thinking you'll only have a little. Every little bit counts!
Without the right amount of nutrients and sufficient or adequate calories, no matter how much you exercise you cannot lose weight. And you certainly won't burn off fat. What you eat is 90 percent of your success. Simply put, working out will not help your weight loss if you're not eating right.
Now, you're probably wondering how much protein you would need to consume to boost your metabolism and preserve lean muscle tissue, which is what keeps your metabolic fires burning hot and prevents that dreadful metabolic slowdown. An easy way to figure out this number is to take your lean body weight (use your goal weight) in pounds and plan on consuming one (1) gram per pound of that lean body weight. If your goal weight is 120 pounds, your daily protein target is 120 grams of lean, metabolic boosting protein.
This is best achieved using LynFit Complete Protein Shakes, Lean Bars, and fish. They are lowest in fat, thus the best for weight loss. That's why celebrities and professional athletes use these tools versus trying to eat food. Plus, they are quantifiable, so you don't guess if you ate too much or too little. Using protein weight loss tools can nail your numbers every time.
After a few weeks, if you still don't feel you've boosted your metabolism enough, try upping your protein by having a Lean Bar. Lean Bars are made with the same superior quality protein used in LynFit Protein Shakes. Or, add a piece of white fish instead of chicken at dinner, to keep fat grams low, but protein high enough to make a change in your body.
You probably think that there's no way you'll have time to consume that much protein every day. A lot of times this can be true, which is why pre-planning, meal prep and having the right tools such as LynFit Protein Shakes and Lean Bars is going to be your best friend. They make losing weight and melting belly fat faster and easier.
Starting off, you should divide your protein up, so you're consuming protein 4-5 times daily, spaced 2½-3 hours apart. But, if you want quicker results and a better boost, divide your meals, so you're consuming six meals daily. If you think that's too much protein, use one (1) scoop of protein powder instead of two (2) in your shakes. Or, use the new Egg White Protein—it's lower in calories and carbs.
If you don't think you'll be able to eat up to six meals daily, you can try adding a little extra protein powder or ½-1 Lean Bar to your meals so you nail your protein quota. And, don't forget to start your protein-boosting early, around 6-7 a.m., and stop by 8 p.m. each night in order to get it all in. It's okay if your protein shakes are closer together—2-2½ hours is okay. You'll find that you're not hungry at all, and that's a good thing!
You're Lacking in Energy and Need that Extra Boost
Your will is the most powerful muscle in your body. If you want something bad enough, you're going to do whatever it takes, and work your tail off in order to achieve it. Losing weight is no different. You must have a sense of urgency, and urgency requires energy. Why?
Let's say you're doing weightlifting using 3-5 pound weights, and you're able to do ten reps without breaking a sweat. Do you think your muscles are breaking a sweat? Of course not. You have to have a sense of urgency and power in your workout, and that sense of urgency will require extra energy—a kick in the pants. That's where LynFit Daily Power Shot comes in. It's the perfect way to ensure your body is getting the nutrition needed for that urgent push to accomplish your goals. It's the ultimate energizer!
You would have to juice over 30 pounds of produce to get the same nutrition that you'll get with Daily Power Shot. It is the most complete liquid mineral colloidal multivitamin available, delivering unparalleled nutrition, fast, all-natural energy we all need more of.
You're Not Sleeping or Getting Enough Rest
Weight loss and workouts push your body to the limit, which increases your sleep and rest demands. Getting enough quality sleep can boost weight loss because your HGH (Human Growth Hormone, responsible for anti-aging and burning fat) levels are at their highest when you're sleeping.
Quality sleep also balances cortisol levels that may be stopping you from losing weight, melting off stubborn belly fat, and becoming stronger. There is a study that directly correlates lack of sleep and high cortisol levels. Cortisol is a catabolic hormone that breaks down muscle, and that is the absolute last thing you want when trying to melt fat and lose weight. That's why I suggest everyone try LynFit Lean Sleep, which is also an antioxidant that can help boost your immunity and reduce joint aches and pains.
Your Hormones are Out of Whack
If you're over age 40, you need a boost—a hormone boost, that is! If you're a male, you need a testosterone booster, and if you're a female, you need to balance your hormones by reducing the stress hormones and increasing the good hormones that help you feel good and slow down the aging process. Additionally, you need to boost thyroid function so you can lose the "middle-aged spread" that's now covering your six-pack.
LynFit Thyro-Boost features powerful ingredients backed by separate human clinical trials that show it to boost testosterone, decrease estradiol, and reduce cortisol levels, keeping your thyroid working up to par, so you stop gaining weight and start losing weight.
You charge your cell phone at night, right? So do the same thing with your body, so it's performing at its best. Take Thyro-Boost every day!
You're Not Consistent
Making the necessary changes to help achieve your goals is one thing—sticking with it is another. You can't expect to see significant results if you only put in the time and effort for just a few weeks. You need to remain consistent with your nutrition and make sure you're getting enough exercise. It's that consistency and frequency that get results.
There's nothing wrong with taking a few days off from your workouts to recharge your body, or even splurging one or two meals weekly. Everyone needs a little upzig now and then, and God knows we all need down time. But allowing yourself to slip back into bad eating habits, not get enough rest or getting lazy, stop you from seeing results. It's those bad habits that will cause you to lose all the progress you worked so hard to achieve.
You need to commit 100 percent in your nutrition and do your best, if you're serious—really serious, about losing weight. I can guarantee you this...you'll never be sorry that you did. But you'll be sorry if you don't. Don't quit on yourself because YOU CAN DO IT!

Six Habits of a Happy, Healthy Mom
Healthy moms are not afraid to get help, and my mom agrees! As Sunday was Mother's Day, I wanted to share some tips from my favorite mom on how she remains a happy and healthy mom.
Nothing is more important than eating right, which means getting enough protein in their diet to nourish and protect their body, especially their bones. That’s why it’s a good idea for all moms to start their day off right with a delicious Complete Protein smoothie.
My mom's favorite smoothie recipe is the Chocolate Shake with water and ice, and get it real frothy. While chocolate may be her favorite, she likes variety and rotates between the shake flavors. Here's her simple recipe:
(2 scoops) LynFit Complete Protein Powder
(¾ cup) Water
Handful of ice
(3-4) Frozen strawberries (mom lives alone and doesn't shop much so keeping frozen strawberries in the house is a must)
Blend together and enjoy!
If mom gets really hungry, she'll have a LynFit Lean Bar with her shake to keep her energy level up.
Mom's favorite snack is a LynFit Chocolate Lean Bar. Sometimes she'll enjoy one with a cup of tea or hot chocolate made with LynFit Complete Protein. This guarantees she gets enough protein, plus she says it makes her hair and nails grow faster.
Think of movement as your exercise, so it's not a chore. While my mom hates it, she still makes sure to get in her 10,000 steps daily and at least does some type of yard work or vacuuming. And, she does keep her weights under her couch so she can lift them while watching television.
Joint Nourishment Time
My mom wakes up achy at times, so she takes LynFit Pure Omega 3 and LynFit Recovery Agent every day instead of reaching for those over-the-counter meds that jack-up her blood pressure. She says, "They make me feel too good!" In other words, I have to tell her to come in from working in the yard all day :)
Her routine is to take (3-4) Recovery Agent (make sure to consult the label for your correct dosage) and (1) Pure Omega 3 every morning, and then again at noon when she feels it starting to wear off. She'll then take another Pure Omega 3 at bedtime to help her heal while she sleeps.
My mom is a firm believer that if you sleep, you'll be merry. However, it's not always easy to sleep after menopause. The sooner you can figure out how to get your eight hours (mom says AT LEAST eight), the more delirious with joy you'll be (that's a "momism" for you).
My mom prefers natural remedies versus over-the-counter sleeping pills because she says she feels better in the morning when she wakes up, and natural remedies are always better for the body.
Lean Sleep is also a great way to improve health and wellness because it acts as an antioxidant. I always suggest combining Pure Omega 3 and Lean Sleep because it helps you sleep longer and relieves joint pain and inflammation.
Pee in Your Pants Belly Laughing Time
When your happy buzz threatens to slip away altogether, remind yourself that "this too shall pass." It works both ways: Either you get through the terrible stuff by knowing it's not forever, or you put it into perspective by reminding yourself that the good stuff—the sticky kisses and the cute little tutus—will also soon be gone. But, that IT WILL get better.
My mom is a firm believer in finding humor in everything and going out of her way to find a good belly laugh. You know the kind—the "pee in your pants" belly laugh! She'll even do something silly if that's what it takes. If nothing else, it makes us laugh at her ridiculousness. After all, for a mom, being able to share a laugh with your kids is priceless!
So, from my mom to all you moms: Get plenty of the right kind of protein, make sure your snacks are healthy, get up and move, give your body the proper nourishment, get plenty of sleep so your body can recover, and above all else, it's okay to pee your pants laugh from time to time :)
Happy Mother's Day Week from all of us at LynFit Nutrition!
So-Called "Healthy Foods" That Can Make You Fat
Some so-called "smart eats" are just junk food in disguise. Cut back on them, and you might just see the scale start to move again. Your thighs will certainly thank you.
Most of us know that certain foods and beverages like the Starbucks® Unicorn drink are loaded with fat and sugar. The drink is 401 calories, 16 grams of fat (10 grams saturated), 5 grams of protein, 62 grams of carbs (0 grams of fiber), and a whopping 59 grams of belly fattening sugar.
But it’s the foods we neglect to check that can be the reason our metabolism is slowing down to a screeching halt. Not to worry, the metabolism is more forgiving than you might think, and the first step is awareness of what works for weight loss and what doesn’t. In the world of weight loss, there are foods that promote weight loss and foods that block it. Here are the Sneaky diet saboteurs and the better choice.
Of course, cutting the junk from your diet (throw it out) is the first step to weight loss, but sometimes the healthy foods you swap in are surprisingly high in fat and calories. When it comes to weight loss, especially if you're above the age 35 mark, it's not only the serving size that matters—even when it comes to fruits, nuts, yogurt, and salads but also how much sugar and fat the foods you eat contains. For more information on how many carbs, sugars, and fats you should take in when you’re trying to lose weight, refer to The Metabolism Solution.
Not only do these seemingly healthy foods block weight loss and prevent you from burning fat, but they also place you at risk for diseases like:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High Blood pressure
- Elevated triglycerides
FOOD SIN #1
- Less sugar than any other brand and low on Glycemic index
- Boosts metabolism by up to 25 percent
- Promotes fat burning
- Protects lean muscle tissue, which promotes your metabolism from slowing down
- Block tummy fattening cortisol levels from rising
FOOD SIN #2
- They contain 20 grams of metabolic boosting protein
- Less sugar than any other bar on the market yet has 20 grams of prebiotic belly fat-burning fiber that makes you feel full and balances blood sugar levels that are responsible for your cravings.
FOOD SIN #3
FOOD SIN #4
Imagine what would happen if you committed all four sins in one day. My advice? Stick to the Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan until you reach your goal weight. Be religious about following it and check the food list provided before eating any foods. If you don’t see it on the list, it's not good for weight loss. It's just that simple.
Following a plan like the Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan works better than any other diet you'll ever try because there is no thinking, planning, or counting calories, which make losing weight faster and easier, leaving you more time to live your life. It's also the most nourishing and healthy for your body. And with health, anything is possible!
Leaner, Stronger, Healthier Moms
Being a mom means caring for others, which usually means we either miss meals or end up grabbing what's handy and eating the wrong things and neglect our health.
Moms need to make their health the number one priority in order to effectively take care of everyone else and set a good example for their kids. Often, this lack of self-care causes us to gain weight, have elevated blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure levels. Moms, there are simple solutions (invite your daughter to join you, or heck, ask your whole family; might as well get everyone healthy).
I'm sure you've told your family to "eat your veggies." It's good advice for you too. Diets that are rich in vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
While veggies are important to provide essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber, there is one nutrient that women are severely lacking, and it's the MOST important nutrient. Can you guess what it is? Protein, Protein, Protein! That's why woman struggle with:
- Hunger and cravings
- Lack of energy
- Sleep deprivation
- Brittle bones
- Weak muscles
- Hormonal imbalances
- Constipation that affects weight loss
The truth is, most of us moms (myself included) are so busy taking care of everyone else that we forget all about ourselves. For me, this led to a lot of anxiety and depression, and I couldn't get out of the vicious cycle that led me to gain 40 pounds.
I exercised every day; in fact, I over exercised. I just couldn't get my food clean until I had/found the right tools that made taking care of myself fast and easy, allowing me more time for my kids and more energy to keep up with them. Now they can barely keep up with me!
Here are the problems moms face, and the tool (slimming solution) recommended by other moms to help bust out of that rut and start taking care of yourself for a healthy change.
No time to eat or prepare healthy food:
"This is where LynFit Complete Protein Shakes come in. I drink two shakes (or eat LynFit Lean Bars) daily to provide my body with the protein it needs to keep me healthy and energized, balance blood sugar, and improve my mood while safely boosting my metabolism by up to 25 percent." - Janine
Cravings for sweets and the wrong types of food:
"I threw all the junk food out of the house and replaced it with LynFit Lean Bars." - Roz
Hot flashes and a sluggish thyroid making you feel awful and wrecking your health:
"My friend told my about LynFit Thyro-Boost, and now I take it religiously twice daily. My doctor can't believe the change!" - Lisa
Moms, we need to put our own oxygen mask on in order to take care of everyone else effectively. The best way to do that is to invest in the right tools!
We want to hear from you and celebrate your success with you. Please feel free to send us your story, along with before and after photos, to Support@LynFit.com. We are here for you every step of the way!

Introducing the LynFit Egg White Protein!
LynFit Nutrition's metabolic boosting Complete Protein line is even better with the addition of two new Egg White flavors: Clean Cocoa and Pure Vanilla. This is the perfect addition to your plan if you're struggling to lose weight or require a dairy-free source of protein.
Egg whites have a reputation for:
- Helping to reduce body fat
- Tightening and toning loose, saggy skin
- Preserving and protecting lean muscle tissue
- Killing hunger and cravings
- Improving digestion
- Reducing acidic conditions in the body
- Balancing blood sugar levels
What makes LynFit Egg White Protein different from all the rest?
LynFit Egg White Protein is an all-natural whole food powdered egg white that comes from non-GMO eggs, sourced exclusively from U.S. farms. The fresh eggs are processed into a powder in under one day to retain the highest nutritional value. All vital nutrients are retained in their purest form along with a complete amino acid profile.
- 100% bio-available (usable by the body)
- 3 grams of pure protein per serving
- Only 100 calories per serving
- A minimum of 317mg of potassium per serving
- Only four ingredients: Non-GMO egg whites, Papain, Protease (digestive enzymes), Stevia
- Sourced exclusively from U.S. farms
- Eggs processed in under one day to maintain highest nutritional value
- No added flavors or colors
- 25 grams of protein
- Contains all nine essential amino acids plus four non-essential
- A most excellent protein source
Why is LynFit Egg White Protein better for weight loss?
To start with, it's pure, natural, and all protein. That means there are virtually no carbs, no fat, and no cholesterol. So the carbs, fats, and cholesterol you save help boost your metabolism and jump-start your weight loss. It is simply the complete form of protein, standing head and shoulders above the rest.
Since egg white protein is non-dairy and lactose-free, it's a better option for those who are lactose sensitive.
How much protein should you consume every day?
The average person requires one (1) gram of protein per pound of lean body weight per day. Example: If you weigh 150 pounds, but you have 25 pounds of fat to lose (thin goal weight), your lean body weight would be 125 pounds. That means you require 125 grams of protein per day. If you're trying to lose weight, the leaner, the better.
When it comes to weight loss and boosting metabolism, it's better to spread this protein throughout the day, so your body uses it vs. storing it. For example, if you eat five meals per day you would aim to have 25 grams of protein at each meal to nail your 125 grams per day of protein.
What if you're doing the metabolic boosting plan to encourage your body to shed fat?
No worries. Simply use the egg white protein for 1-2 of your meals each day, so your body gets a variety of protein sources. This will help to boost your metabolism, and if you feel your body needs more protein, add a shake.
Unlike foods like chicken breast, LynFit shakes won't slow weight loss the way overeating other sources can due to the higher calories and fats they contain.
*NOTE: Using different types of metabolic boosting proteins is best for boosting a sluggish metabolism and helps break up the monotony.
Rapid weight loss and daily exercise places demands on the body. It's better to have too much of this type of protein vs. not enough so your skin stays tight and your body stays nourished. Protein is the building block of muscle, preventing body fat formation, stopping weight gain, and encouraging weight loss.
Consuming the right amount of protein is the best way to nourish hair, skin, and nails. Egg white protein (all LynFit proteins) are perfect sources of protein for all types of diets, including gastric bypass. From chemotherapy patients to kids, world class athletes to bodybuilders, and everyone in between.
What's the best way to use LynFit Egg White Protein?
Drink it in a smoothie. No matter what you mix it with you won't taste the egg whites. They have a deliciously smooth texture that is very different from whey, so you may have to experiment with your usual recipes to master egg whites.
Bake with it. You can also cook and bake with the egg white protein. In fact, for any recipe that calls for egg whites, you can use the egg white powder by reconstituting it. Cooking and baking burn off part of the protein, but as long as you're not consuming the egg whites cooked for every meal, you shouldn’t have to worry about it.
Reconstituting your egg white protein powder makes it just like the liquid egg whites we all cook and bake with. You could even make an omelet with it if you'd like. Reconstituting egg whites is as simple as adding some warm water to you your egg white powder. Most of the time 2-3 tablespoons per scoop of powder is all it takes.
Here's another idea: Add it to your coffee for a protein-packed, on-the-go, metabolic boosting breakfast!
Can't get enough protein into your kids? Mix one (1) scoop into their milk, pour over cereal or make them a smoothie. Kids also love egg white protein made into scrambled chocolate egg whites with strawberries on top.
Use your imagination. Wherever you see whey you can substitute egg whites instead. The texture may be different but the protein is still great.
WELCOME TO LYNFIT EGG WHITE RECIPES!
Here are the most popular LynFit Egg White Protein recipes. They are popular for a reason so choose the one that suits you and don’t forget that egg whites will have a whole new texture and taste, so you may want to try some new recipes while you’re getting used to it.

Sometimes You Just Need The Right Tools To Spark Change
Have you ever heard the saying, "If you could do it yourself, you would have already"?
I think that's true to a point. And probably why you might still be struggling to lose that five, ten, fifteen or more pounds. You just may be doing the same things, but expecting different results, and that's more than likely not going to happen.
Sometimes, all you need are the right tools to spark that change. Losing weight is always easier with support!
As many of you know, I'm all about finding solutions to the toughest weight loss problems, so I'm a big fan of supplements. They make losing weight easier, especially when they are used correctly. We call this nutrient-partitioning in my world.
Here are some of the ways that the strategic use of specific supplements can help you stop struggling and start losing the same day you start!
LynFit Thyro-Boost: This supplement helps reduce stress levels which can reduce the odds of emotional eating. Thyro-Boost also helps to balance and regulate hormones.
LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost: Taking in adequate Vitamin D can help prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a form of depression that can make losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle harder. Vitamin D3 Boost will also help melt off stubborn belly fat.
LynFit Lean Sleep: A good night's sleep just makes everything easier, and LynFit Lean Sleep helps you do more than sleep better, it also works as a powerful antioxidant-boosting immunization, helping to regulate (reduce) belly fat because it helps reduce cortisol levels.
LynFit Pure Omega 3: It helps your body absorb the nutrients you take in, balances blood sugar, and boosts mood. When we feel better, we eat better. Omega 3 also helps decrease the inflammation that can cause aches, pains, and weight gain.
LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore: This two-in-in supplement helps improve digestion and restores gut health so you feel less bloated and your belly returns to flat. Have you ever noticed that when you feel thinner, you eat cleaner? There's a reason for that!
LynFit Accelerator Advanced: This two-in-one supplement naturally boosts metabolism, kills hunger and cravings, reduces blood sugar levels, and primes the body for maximum weight loss.
LynFit Cutting Edge: Cutting Edge helps the body to burn fat, reduces cellulite, and prevents new fat cells from being formed.
LynFit Daily Power Shot: Over 90 essential nutrients packed into one dynamite supplement that nourishes and protects your body by providing it every nutrient it needs to stay healthy while providing natural energy in the exact amount needed in a highly efficient, delicious liquid colloidal form.
Protein, Protein, Protein: Protein should be the #1 priority on everyone's list. Every good diet and weight loss plan should begin with the very best nutrition, and it doesn't get better than LynFit's premium whey protein found in LynFit Complete Protein, LynFit Complete Protein Advanced, and LynFit Lean Bars.
*NOTE: LynFit Nutrition is the only company who uses premium grade whey in their protein bars. It's the only whey to boost metabolism. A nourished, healthy body loses weight easier and craves less.
Improving physical fitness leads to a physiological reduction in stress levels which can also decrease emotional eating, make it easier to sleep and build confidence in every area of your life.
BELIEVING, BEGINNING, AND BECOMING
It's critical that you cleanse and detoxify your thoughts and replace them with believing, beginning, and becoming. If you don't have faith and believe you CAN do it, you'll never begin by taking that first step to becoming your very best.
As you can see, every area of your life directly affects all areas, and that's why a holistic approach works the best.
On the other hand, if you're one-of-those "I'll do it myself", "my way" people, and focus on eating cleaner and getting some exercise, your plan might work until......
The "until" could be something stressful happening, causing you to eat emotionally, and you don't have the right kind of food handy (Protein Shakes and Lean Bars). You could wind up frustrated and fall off your new leaner lifestyle.
Or, "until" could be winter coming or you're just not getting outside enough, causing you to feel sad and depressed. These bad mood slumps can wreck the best plans.
Maybe, "until" is when you can't sleep due to hormones or life, leading to chronic fatigue, which is lethal for weight loss because it makes it harder to prepare healthy meals. That is why we usually grab fast comfort food or extra caffeine.
You get the point :)
There are thousands of "until" scenarios and each one set us up to fail. However, the solutions and tools help set you up for success and a healthy lifestyle change that can last a last a lifetime with continual ongoing success in every area of your life.
On a related note, it drives me crazy when people "think" they don't need supplements to lose weight. The smart use of specific supplements is the best way to guarantee that your body stays nourished and healthy, turning the weight gain switch to the off position while preventing the much feared metabolic shutdown.
If what you've been doing isn't working, it's time for a new way to lose weight. A metabolic boosting approach!
One piece I think you need to consider is the science of cleansing/fasting and the use of the right combination of supplements to promote lasting change.
Metabolic boosting cleansing (the smart way to fast) is at the heart of the Lose 1 Pound Per Day program because it's the key to losing weight fast, and safely. I went into detail about the correct way to cleanse in the blog article, "Cleanse Away Those Unwanted Pounds!" I encourage you to read the article and watch the accompanying video. I'm sure it will bring just the right amount of hope and encouragement. Hopefully, it will get you off your butt and on the road toward losing weight and melting fat off your belly, butt, and wherever else you may need it.
Need even more motivation? Check out the video testimonials and Before and After photos of past and current LynFit clients. And, please send us your photos so we can celebrate your journey with you. Who knows, your story may be the very one that inspires someone else to take that first step!
Happy cleansing, and don't forget to download the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Plan for specific food lists, cleaning water recipes, soup recipes, and dessert recipes clean enough to eat, even while cleansing!

Prebiotic Fiber: The Natural, Delicious Way To Suppress Your Appetite
When it comes to losing weight, making healthier, leaner food choices needs to be the top priority. To shed pounds, you have to eliminate the high-calorie foods and beverages (including coffee with milk or creamer) from your diet, and that can be downright frustrating. I suggest taking a different approach; focus on what you can eat vs. what you can't and find a healthier, leaner go-to replacement for your favorite foods. You’ll not only lose weight, but you'll also keep it off!
That’s where LynFit Lean Bars and Advanced Lean Bars with prebiotic fiber come in. They are not only delicious, so they satisfy your cravings, they also keep you feeling full and satisfied without all of the excess calories, carbs, and sugars other protein bars contain. Also, countless studies have proven that adding more fiber to your diet can help you lose more weight and keep it off long term.
What’s the difference between Soluble Fiber vs. Insoluble Fiber
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods. While some weight loss plans try to limit carbohydrates, fiber is a healthy kind of carb that you want in your diet. Our bodies aren’t built to digest it, which is a good thing. There are two types of fiber—soluble and insoluble. Fiber also helps with digestion, which is important when it comes to boosting the metabolism.
Sources of soluble fiber include foods like oatmeal, lentils, oranges, pears, strawberries, beans, and blueberries. This type of fiber absorbs water, provides bulk to the food you’re digesting, delays digestion and gives you a fuller feeling.
Sources of insoluble fiber include whole wheat, whole grains, wheat bran, seeds, nuts, barley, and dark leafy greens. This fiber also adds bulk, speeds up the digestion process, doesn’t absorb water, and passes through your body quickly.
While they’re different, both kinds of fiber are crucial for a healthy diet. However, some of these fiber sources can spike insulin levels and block fat from being burned. That's why they are not on your metabolic boosting food list. But the best fiber is prebiotic fiber, and most of us don't get any.
A LynFit Lean Bar daily 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.
You would have to consume 2-3 (sometimes more) servings of fiber supplements to get the same benefits of eating one LynFit Lean Bar, and fiber supplements can backfire and cause you to remain constipated.
In fact, you'd need to eat ten medium-sized apples per day to hit your fiber target. Eating one delicious LynFit Lean Bar supplies 1/3 of your daily quota, and they sure taste a whole lot better. Eating an entire head of broccoli will still only get you six grams!
LynFit Lean Bars and Advanced Lean Bars should be your go-to snack food every day to stay regular, help keep you feeling fuller longer, helping to flatten your belly and reshape your body. They help lower blood sugar levels and restore healthy gut microbes thanks to the prebiotic fiber they contain.
Now you can finally take control of your cravings and your weight loss.
How much fiber do you need?
Most people think they are getting enough fiber, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The recommended fiber intake is 25–35 grams per day, and the average person only gets 15 grams each day. One LynFit Lean Bar daily gets you ten grams of the best source of fiber—prebiotic fiber. No other fiber supplement on the market today does this.
A quick reminder: When incorporating fiber into your weight loss and management program, follow two rules: introduce it slowly to avoid gas and bloating issues; and stay fully hydrated at all times. Fiber works best when consumed in conjunction with plenty of water.
So enjoy a Lyn Lean Bar or Advanced Lean Bar every day, along with a bottle of water, a cup up hot tea, or our favorite is a warm cup of hot chocolate made with LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Then sit back and enjoy the bliss!
