LynFit Lean Bars are the cleanest, purest, and best tasting protein bars. If you’re stuck in the weight loss rut and can’t lose weight, your protein bar may be to blame.
Most protein bars are loaded with fats and sugars and do not contain enough protein, or the right kind of protein, for weight loss. That’s what makes LynFit Lean Bars better than all of the rest. They are the only bar that’s made with pure, high-grade whey, prebiotic fiber, and taste so delicious you’ll stop craving those snack foods that cause weight gain.
LynFit Lean Bars are oven-baked and made from real foods and natural flavors and even healthy enough to replace a meal with due to their protein content.
- Low carb
- Less sugar
- Gluten and soy free
- 1-2 grams sugar
- 9-10 grams net low-glycemic carbs
- 9-10 grams prebiotic fiber
- 19g metabolic boosting whey protein
- Only 150 calories
- No preservatives
The Lean Bar's soft, chewy texture satisfies your need to chew while taming your sweet tooth. The fiber keeps you feeling fuller longer and improves gut health. It's a tantalizing sensation that your taste buds and body will love.
Fiber is vital when trying to lose weight because it keeps you feeling fuller longer while providing multiple health benefits. Dietary fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes—and that’s exactly where the problem lies. Most of us don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables to reach your goals. You need to limit whole grains when trying to lose weight, making it difficult to reach your daily quota of fiber.
Just some of the many added benefits of LynFit Lean Bars include:
- Boosts metabolism and promotes weight loss
- Kills cravings and keeps you feeling full
- Protects and helps prevent muscle loss
- Helps control blood sugar
- Great for diabetics
- Prevent candida while normalizing gut/intestinal bacteria
- Strengthens your immune system
- Helps tummy troubles
- Promotes regularity
- Naturally energizing
- Saves time and money
- Great for clean eating while on the fun and road

Outsmart Your Metabolism To Burn Fat Faster!
Whether you’re trying to burn off stubborn body fat or shed a few pounds, you’ll need to know the fat loss facts first before you can successfully melt fat and lose weight.
More than 100 million people in the U.S. have a metabolic issue known as Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, or Insulin Resistance that’s STOPPING them from losing weight.
Despite there being a gym on every corner and a diet/fad for every hour of the day, Americans are becoming more overweight and obese by the day. Even the so-called “skinny” people are now sporting excess belly fat. Until you understand how your metabolism works, you might never lose weight.
What does belly fat have to do with not being able to lose weight?
If you're serious about losing weight, attacking fat loss needs to be at the top of your priority list. Having excess fat on or around your belly makes losing weight and burning off fat even harder and can even stop weight loss, despite aggressive efforts.
Belly fat specifically throws your hormones out of balance, which acts as a parking brake for weight loss. In order to lose weight easier, you’ve got to first remove the parking brake. That’s the secret to outsmarting your metabolism; address the underlying issues first. While it may be easy to do, you do have to be consistent because fat is stubborn and practically fights back.
IF YOU DO THESE THREE SIMPLE THINGS, YOU'LL BURN OFF THAT STUBBORN STORED BODY FAT AND LOSE WEIGHT FASTER
You can lose 10, 20, 30 pounds of fat, lose inches, and keep it off forever if you teach your body how to live off its own fat reserves; aka: burn fat.
Eat clean, specifically for fat loss. Download the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan HERE and choose foods from that list only! If you don't see it on the list, it's not good for fat loss and certainly won't help you lose weight.
Reset and reprogram your metabolism, so you burn more calories all day long, even while you sleep.
The problem with every diet (including low carb/paleo) is as soon as you decrease your calories, your metabolism slows down, despite the fact that we need to reduce them to lose weight.
There are lots of things you can do to prevent this from happening, but the simple solution is to turn up the heat in your metabolism with the strategic use of specific supplements such as LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge (or the new combined supplement, LynFit Accelerator Advanced). These supplements are thermogenic, which means they heat up your metabolism, making it easier for your body to burn off that stubborn body fat that's not only keeping you from fitting into your favorite jeans but also makes it harder to lose weight.
In addition to taking those supplements and cleaning up your diet, you should also be:
- Eating between certain hours only, to allow your body a 12-hour fast each night to lower blood sugar levels. I suggest 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. So no eating, zero, nothing, after 7 p.m.
- Exercising on an empty stomach in the morning
- Cutting carbs at night and stick to leafy greens vs. the higher carb vegetables like string beans and carrots (see the food list in the Meal Plan for more)
Doesn’t exercise make you burn fat? Nope! Even when you exercise hard, it doesn’t mean that the fat that’s circulating will be burned off. Most often, it's re-stored unless you have the right nutrients present. That’s why it’s critical that you Do have what your body needs to make this happen.
When it comes to losing weight and melting fat off those stubborn hard to reach places, sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough. That's where LynFit comes in. Think of fat loss supplements as tools that make it faster and easier, the same way power tools lighten your workload.
Our weight and body fat percentages have increased because our bodies (even the fittest ones) have become sensitive to the foods we eat. To make matters worse, we eat way too much, and we eat too often, so our bodies don’t have time to use all the fuel we provide. Body fat is a telltale sign you’ve been overeating. This is a bigger problem than most people realize and it’s also why we can’t lose weight despite our endless hours in the gym.
Body fat is a telltale sign you’ve been overeating. This is a bigger problem than most people realize and it’s also why we can’t lose weight, despite our endless hours in the gym.
When you're overweight and have belly fat, your body overreacts to carbohydrates, and it releases too much insulin, the fat-storing hormone. The elevated insulin opens the doors to your fat cells both inside (around your organs) and outside your body.
The good news? This is where the LynFit Essential Fat Loss Stack comes into play.
The Essential Fat Loss Stack attacks fat from every angle, and that's what it takes to burn off fat and boost metabolism.
First thing in the morning, as soon as you get up take:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
If you work out, and you're trying to burn fat, you'll want to work out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach when your glycerin levels are low. This allows you to burn fat faster, and if you add the Essential Fat Loss Stack, you can triple your results.
Black coffee is okay to have, but nothing else.
If you don't work out, take the LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge anyway. it will mimic the blood sugar, glycerin-lowering benefits, much like exercise.
After your workout, or 2-3 hours after your first dose, or if you don't exercise, take:
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
This will guarantee that fat is being burned off vs. being restored again.
At lunch time, when your metabolism begins to decline, which is exactly what you don't want, so you need to turn up the heat again by taking:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator (if taking two Accelerators is too much for your body, open the capsule and sprinkle ½ of its contents vs. not taking it at all)
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
Supplements are more important than you might think and everyone is different when it comes to dosage. It's important to remember that you can start slow and add as you go, and as needed.
But food is the reason we get fat to begin with, so swap out your fat-storing food for metabolic boosting thermogenic food (see the food list in the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan). Thermogenic means heat, so these foods will heat up and rev up your metabolism, making it easier to melt off stubborn body fat.
Remove all milk and non-dairy creamers. And yes, this includes coconut oils and milk.
Replace with black coffee and add Melt Fat Milk.
Try this metabolic boosting, fat blasting "Coffee a-la Protein" drink. You'll love it, and it helps replace the fattening creamers and milk.
- (1-2 scoops) LynFit Protein Powder of choice
- (1 cup) Coffee
Mix the protein powder according to the label directions using warm water for hot coffee or cold water if you're having iced coffee. Add the Melt Fat Milk and enjoy!
This is the most delicious way to enjoy your coffee and have a metabolic boosting shake.
If you're not a coffee fan, try calorie-free chai teas instead.
We love to hear about your successes. Please feel free to send us your before and after photos and progress reports to Support@LynFit.com. But more than anything else:

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!

Is Juicing a Healthy Habit?
A lot of people are juicing for health because they think it’s a great way to jump-start their weight loss. However, what you might not know can not only stop your weight loss, it can make you sick. Juicing may provide some nutrients, but it could also be doing a number on your blood sugar levels, which stops weight loss dead in its tracks, causing your body to store excess fat around your stomach, hips, and thighs. Storing this excess fat makes it even harder to lose weight in the long run.Here's a letter I received:
"My fiancée and I have been losing 1 pound a day on your plan for the last two weeks. We started juicing, thinking it would be good for us. We make fresh juice using a variety of fruits and vegetables; including cucumbers, carrots, kale, spinach, celery, apples, and mangos. We drink 16 ounces every 3–4 hours throughout the day, followed by a healthy dinner. But after the first day, our weight loss stopped, and we were wondering if the fresh juice might be causing blood sugar spikes. We're concerned that this might not be a healthy habit and could be the reason we are hungry all the time." — John A
Yes, you guessed it. When people start juicing, they assume it’s all good, and they tend to take an "all in" approach. They don’t think about the fact that they are juicing several quarts of fresh juice daily, and most of the time they consume only one healthy meal a day. This couple's concern is right on target—Juicing elevated their blood sugar levels that stopped their weight loss.
If you've ever juiced before, you know that it takes several pounds of produce to produce 16 ounces of juice. That’s why we think juicing is such a healthy habit. We all know that eating our vegetables is good for us, and most of us fall short of the recommended intake, which is five vegetables per day and 2–3 fruits, making juicing seem like the perfect solution. But is it?
When you juice, you are getting the nutritional equivalent of at least a dozen servings of fruits and vegetables in every glass. The problem is that juicing also concentrates the natural sugars in fruits and vegetables while separating out all the fiber that would normally slow the absorption of sugars. If you drink the juice all by itself, those sugars will be quickly absorbed into your bloodstream causing your insulin levels to skyrocket. The insulin spike gives you that sugar high, but it’s not good for melting fat or losing weight.
Want to know how much sugar is in that so-called healthy juice you’re drinking?Check out the table below of the eight most popular fruits and vegetables used for juicing. It will show you how much of each it takes to make 16 ounces of juice, as well as how much sugar that amount contains.
Does fresh juice raise blood sugar levels as much as drinking soda?Yes. If your juice contains all of the typical fruits and vegetables most commonly used (such as the clients above), in roughly equal amounts. Taking into account the fact that some of the sugar will be left behind in the pulp, we could guess that each 16-ounce serving would have about 38 grams of sugar, which is the amount in a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola. The problem is your fat cells, glucose receptors, and pancreas cannot distinguish between the sugars in juice and the sugars in soda.
My suggestion is to chew your food don’t juice it. It’s better for you in the long run and will save you a ton of money. Drinking 16 ounces of fresh fruit and vegetable juice every 3–4 hours or even once a day, without adding protein and removing the fiber, could lead to some significant blood sugar spikes that stop weight loss dead in its tracks.
I can hear you now—Unlike the sugar in a Coke, the sugar in the juice is natural, so it’s good for you, right? It also contains vast amounts of nutrients. It takes, at least, a dozen servings of fruits and vegetables to produce a 16-ounce glass of juice. Surely all of that great nutrition would offset that blood sugar issue, wouldn’t it?Most of the nutrients you receive from juicing fruits and veggies are antioxidants. Antioxidants are good for us, but there's a limit to how much your body can utilize at one time. We can create an imbalance of nutrients that sets us up for a nutrient deficiency by overshooting the runway. Yes, five servings of vegetables a day keeps us healthy, but more is not better. Researchers even believe overdoing it can be harmful to your health, especially if you have cancer or any other disease that might prompt you to feel the need to cleanse.
Want to boost your nutrition without hurting your weight loss? Juice like this.....If you love the taste, or you're convinced that fresh juice is making your life better, here are a few suggestions for maximizing your returns and minimizing any downside, especially if you’re trying to lose weight and keep it off.
- Juice in moderation. There's nothing wrong with enjoying a glass of fresh juice on a daily basis, but 8-ounces a day is plenty. Stay away from straight fruit juice.
- Juice leafy greens vs. higher sugar vegetables (See thermogenic list of vegetables in The Metabolism Solution)
- Boost weight loss and nutrition by adding 1–2 scoops of Complete Whey Protein Powder Advanced. Adding protein will not only round out the meal nutritionally but will also slow the absorption of sugars from the juice. When it comes to digesting sugar, slower is always better unless you’re running a marathon. For weight gain or maintenance; add almond or coconut milk, nuts or nut butter, grains, Greek yogurt, avocado, olive oil, fish, and/or whole fruits. Vegetables would all be good complements to fresh juice.
- Have your Lean Green Cleansing Machine (see recipe below) after your workout. The best time to consume your green drink is immediately after you exercise to replace lost nutrients, replenish blood sugar levels while it’s also less likely to spike blood sugar levels.
- Make "whole juice." High-powered blenders can emulsify, or reduce, whole fruits and vegetables to a smoothie-like texture. That is good because it also retains the fiber that slows the release of blood sugar. Don’t forget to add a scoop of Complete Protein Powder to boost your metabolism. After all, isn’t that why we all cleanse?
Here are a few cleansing pros: You hydrate, nourish, and your emotional health improves because you are dong something good for your body. Here's that quick recipe for the Lean Green Cleansing Machine mentioned above, courtesy of The Metabolism Solution:(½) cup of pre-made Green Tea
(1) scoop of LynFit Non-GMO Complete Protein Advanced
(1) small fistful of Kale or any leafy Green
(½) peeled lemon
Boost Your Metabolism Naturally
Think that dream body isn't possible? Well, the secret is out. You can lose the weight and melt away belly fat in a fast and easy way. Make this year better than the last.
How many times have you started a diet on Monday only to throw in the towel by Tuesday? Too many diets can be frustrating and difficult to stick to. If you have tried every fitness program and diet on the planet, from Paleo to juicing, or even the “gluten free” craze, you’ll want to try the Lose 1 Pound a Day Plan to boost your metabolism. It’ll help you melt stubborn fat and keep it off for good.
WHAT IS METABOLISM?
Metabolism is the process by which the body breaks down food to produce energy. When we 're young, it's easy to lose weight. We can diet and exercise and easily lose weight. However, as we age, it becomes increasingly more difficult to lose weight. Our metabolism creates the wrong environment for weight loss; such as intense cravings for the wrong foods, fatigue, lack of energy, mood swings and depression. We begin to rapidly pack on pounds, especially around our stomach, hips, and thighs. That makes it even harder to lose weight no matter how hard you try. Our weight gain switch gets stuck in the "On" position as we get older.
By the time you hit 40 (for many of us this starts after graduating high school), our metabolism begins to slow down 5 percent every decade, making it practically impossible to lose weight. In fact, one out of three overweight people have a metabolic issue known as metabolic resistance that manifests itself through such conditions as pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, and haywire hormones that need to be addressed to lose weight—No matter how much time you're spending in the gym.
The good news is that you have more control over your metabolism than you think and can control this metabolic nightmare.
Eat thermogenically to recalibrate your appetite and switch your cravings to "off". It can be as simple as starting your day with LynFit Whey 12 hours after your last meal to boost metabolism by 25 percent while blocking cortisol. This makes it easier to burn off stubborn belly fat.
Take (1) LynFit Accelerator to heat up your metabolism and accelerate weight loss safely and naturally.
NOTE: Not all protein shakes are created equal. This specific whey is the most powerful whey when it comes to boosting your metabolism. It contains the exact amount of amino acids your body needs to feed the muscle, preventing your metabolism from slowing down while starving the fat, so it leaves. It also tastes delicious.
LynFit Accelerator isn't your typical fat burner. It is a multi–ingredient approach that works quickly to reset your metabolism. Unlike single ingredient supplements that don’t work as well, LynFit Accelerator contains the pharmaceutical grade superstar ingredient, raspberry ketones, and contains an ingredient that blunts the hunger signal because it makes you feel full. You'll see and feel a difference in the same day. You won't find this quality on store shelves.
For 30 percent faster results, empty the capsule into your shake.
Burn the fat faster and easier by replacing your mid-morning snack with tea and take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge supplement.
Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge with L-Carnitine immediately after your workout, or 1–2 hours after your Protein Shake for breakfast to persuade your body to burn fat by transporting fat into the cell, so it's guaranteed to be burned as fuel and not stored.
LynFit Cutting Edge is also a multi-ingredient approach that science says is 20-times more effective than single ingredient supplements. It saves you time and money as well.
This is my favorite because the complex in it also helps your brain make serotonin, so you feel good fast. If you’re already working out, you’ll want to take this before and after your workout to force your body to burn fat.
Curb cravings and reshape your body by curbing your munchies before they begin. Munch on a green apple and take (1) LynFit Carb Edge supplement. Carb Edge enhances thyroid function that normally slows down when your trying to lose weight. It balances blood sugar levels that cause you to crave. This is also the trick to changing the shape of your body. You'll see your body lean out and trim down. Most people see results in the same week.
NOTE: LynFit Carb Edge also takes the multi-ingredient approach. It contains white kidney bean extract that blocks 65 percent of the unwanted carbs from being absorbed, so you eat more and absorb less.
You’ll see a difference within the same week. What could be more motivating than that? Get started today!
Superfoods For Super Pain Relief From Rheumatoid Arthritis
Janine Rose refers to her days suffering from rheumatoid arthritis as her Dark, Depressed Days. She remembers not being able to walk to the mailbox or grab a steering wheel because the pain was too excruciating. Her hands became so swollen that she couldn’t do a thing except lie flat and wait for the pain to subside. The fatigue and exhaustion were like nothing she had ever experienced and it took over her life completely; or shall we say, killed any life that might have been.
She already knew the cause was rheumatoid arthritis, but that didn’t make it easier. The sheer amount of medications she had to take had its set of side-effects. Medications that many people don’t have access to because their outrageous cost is financially crippling without insurance. Though treatments for rheumatoid arthritis did bring some relief, it caused her weight to reach an all-time high of 211 lbs. The depression became so severe that all she wanted to do was eat and sleep (read Janine's story HERE). She admits that her horrific eating habits were also contributing to rheumatoid arthritis and also rendering the medications ineffective. The demand for more necessary medications continued, so the vicious cycle continued.
Now it's 8 years later, and the 49-year-old mom has lost 88 lbs. and holding. Janine has managed to keep the weight off despite the fact that rheumatoid arthritis tends to come back to haunt every once in a while. Pain recurrence can set you back mentally and physically and cause your weight to skyrocket if you aren’t careful. Especially if you need to take medications that are known to increase blood sugar levels that cause extreme cravings and water retention. This shows up as excess pounds on the scale that can lead to even deeper depression.
Janine has found a way to do what may seem impossible when rheumatoid arthritis strikes that has kept her on the road to success. She has managed to keep her weight off and is learning to take better care of her health by staying on top of her care. People who are on top of their care tend to do better overall when it comes to keeping the weight off and managing symptoms.
Janine’s doctor couldn’t be happier that she has managed to keep her weight off and that she has found a way to modify her metabolic boosting workouts, allowing her to continue to exercise. She says the training provides quite a mood boost — something we all know we need when we aren’t feeling well.
Here are some suggestions I gave Janine when her rheumatoid arthritis symptoms came back to haunt her recently. Management, metabolic boosting tips may help you as well if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or any pain-related illness.
Sometimes food becomes our only comfort when we are in pain. It’s important to stick to your plan now more than ever when symptoms flare up. Food is the problem, not the solution. Stay tight on your thermogenic eating plan available in The Metabolism Solution.
Fall is full of superfoods that can do more than delight your taste buds. If you’re not careful, however, you might eat foods that cause weight gain that can trigger inflammation, leaving you feeling worse than you did before you ate the so-called superfoods. Here are some seasonal favorites that contain nutrients that may help lessen the pain associated with any type of arthritis. They also help boost metabolism, making weight loss easier. Try to incorporate these foods and nutrients into your diet to ease pain and keep your weight under control. Maintaining a healthy weight helps prevent additional stress on your joints and your mind. That is a critical step when it comes to managing any pain.
For starters, limit pumpkin and winter squashes. While they are healthy superfoods, they also spike blood sugar levels that can trigger a rheumatoid arthritis attack or increase pain. Don’t be fooled by the health halo claims. If you're trying to lose weight the rules are different when managing any pain, especially arthritis.
A is for Awesome Apples. You already know how much I love apples when it comes to boosting metabolism and melting fat. What you might not know is how good they are for pain relief. Apples are always associated with fall, which brings emotional pleasure. That bright, firm apple is also a healthy rheumatoid arthritis snack. Apples are high in fiber, meaning they fill you up and cut hunger, kill cravings and balance blood sugar — that is key. This makes it easier to maintain your weight or even drop a few pounds. One thing most experts agree on is apples are a great fruit, period.
Because of all the different varieties of apples, they are very versatile in terms of how you can cook with them. You can add them to savory dishes as well as enjoy them as dessert. Try my Apple Whey Crispalicous found in The Metabolism Solution for an irresistibly delicious dessert that helps with your aches and pains.
C is for Curry or Curcumin. Some spices, such as turmeric, are being investigated for potential health benefits. Turmeric is a mild spice that gives Indian curries their characteristic yellow color. In fact, it’s what makes mustard yellow. Curry can be added to fall soups and stews (see the Good for Your Chicken Stew recipe in The Metabolism Solution) to cook healthy foods for rheumatoid arthritis that deliver an anti-inflammatory boost.
Turmeric (Curry) has a mild anti-inflammatory effect. If you’re trying to reduce inflammation, the more ways you can help yourself the better you’ll feel. It's not yet clear how much of the spice is needed to get a measurable effect on rheumatoid arthritis. You need to like it to get enough. That being said, I suggest turmeric from LynFit Recovery Agent instead to ensure your body gets what it needs for pain relief. Using spices is always a healthy way to add flavor and variety to foods when managing pain or your weight.
Anytime you can use spice for flavor rather than salt, it's a good for metabolic boosting.
G is for Go Nuts. But not all nuts are created equal. While most nuts are an excellent source of heart-healthy unsaturated fats, some nuts, such as walnuts, also contain Omega 3 fatty acids that can fight inflammation. That puts them in the rheumatoid arthritis superfoods category. I like them as a weight loss expert because no one ever overeats on walnuts, but I’ve seen many a woman polish off a bag of pistachios despite the cost. I find it amazing how we never seem to notice the expense of our cheats.
Nuts are also cholesterol-free, making them a healthy snack. Just don't overdo it. Nuts are calorie-dense, so watch your portion size. It's best to stick to a small handful — about an ounce.
The Apple Whey Crispalicious recipe in The Metabolism Solution includes walnuts, so you’ll be getting two superfoods in one snack.
K is for Kale. Kale has traditionally been a cool-weather green, although its nutritional powers make it a year-round favorite and celebrity recently, and for good reason. Like other leafy green vegetables, kale is rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants and vitamins K and C. It's also high in fiber, making it a great rheumatoid arthritis super-food.
Kale can be cooked, eaten raw in a salad, or baked into crispy kale chips for a healthy on-the-go snack. Try my Kale Chips found in The Metabolism Solution. They are not only good for you; they taste great too. Don’t tell your kids it's kale, or that they are good for you, and they will devour them. That worked for me in my house.
S is for Salmon. If you're on my metabolic boosting programs, you know how I feel about salmon. Coldwater fish such as salmon, sardines, tuna, mackerel, and even anchovies, contain inflammation-fighting Omega 3 fatty acids. Try to have (2) or more 3–4 oz. portions each week. Check out the recipes in The Metabolism Solution. Try them over and over, adding your favorite spices until you find a way to enjoy them.For fast relief, stick to your plan and drink your Complete Protein Shakes. They also help in healing, which is directly correlated with pain relief. Don’t allow pain to take you off your weight loss game. You shouldn’t suffer either. Try these superfoods, and as always, please keep me posted on your successes. I love to hear about them!
