Getting Back On Track With Your Weight Loss



When it comes to weight loss, "tomorrow" is the most dangerous word in the English language. If you're serious about losing weight, and not seeing the results you'd like, it's time to stop living the way you've been living. The price you pay is very high for the cheap thrill that food gives you. In the end, it might even cost you your health. How you're living today directly affects your tomorrow. So, what will you do differently?

I receive emails seeking advice, all too often, from people with a habit of doing a week or two of strict, metabolic boosting eating and then falling off the weight loss wagon into a pile of cookies or store-bought protein bars. They want to know what they can do to stick to the plan, or should they even try. The first thing I tell them is the reason most people fall is that they think they need to be perfect with their eating. It's important to understand that perfection does not exist. 

Most of us fall because we become too legalistic about our diets. Rather, our diets should be treated as a habit of making better choices, requiring us to decide what our actions will be. This makes us responsible for our actions, and the outcomes.

You know the old saying; "If you keep doing what you've always done you'll just keep getting the same results. To expect anything different is the very definition of insanity." Quite honestly, there is a lot of insanity surrounding the foods that will keep you from reaching your goals. 

Have you ever told yourself; "I'll just have a little"? Sorry to say it, but that little bit is what's stopping you from reaching your goals. 

It's at these very times to remind yourself that perfection does not exist. Focus on daily progress, not daily perfection. You have more control than you think when it comes to making food choices. But if you keep falling off the wagon, it's possible you may need a few tools to help keep you on track.

These tools make losing weight faster and easier because they:

    • Help kill hunger and cravings that cause you to fall off-plan
    • Boost metabolism by 25 percent, so you burn more calories all day long, even while asleep. This is especially important when you decide to go off-plan because it will help keep you from gaining weight.
    • Block cortisol (stress hormones) levels from rising, which helps prevent weight gain in the belly, hips, and thighs. Blocking cortisol is more important than you think. Stress causes your body to produce excess cortisol levels, and the only way to melt belly fat is by reducing these levels. It's not an easy job and the very reason you need to attack belly fat with a 1, 2, 3 punch.

STEP #1: BOOST METABOLISM AND BLOCK CORTISOL LEVELS

Drink a LynFit Complete Protein Shake 12 hours after your last meal. Do not add fruit or any type of milk if you're trying to lose a pound a day. Remember, it's all about replacements and better choices, so swap out your high-sugar juice or yogurt for this instead. 

Looking for a delicious shake recipe that will not only tantalize your taste buds but rev up your metabolism as well? Look no further — here's my Melt Belly Fat Birthday Cake Smoothie:

(3 scoops) LynFit Vanilla Complete Whey Protein Powder
(½ cup) Water
(3–4) Ice cubes

Throw it all in the blender and mix until smooth and then drink yourself thin. The extra protein used will help keep you feeling fuller longer and won't spike blood sugar levels the way fruit and milk will.

STEP #2: KILL HUNGER AND CRAVINGS

Belly fat makes you hungrier, so the faster you lose it; the faster you'll be able to lose overall weight. You need to flip the hunger switch off and trick your body into acting like a thin person by teaching and encouraging it to burn fat for fuel instead of overwhelming you with hunger pangs. 

This is where the smart use of safe supplements comes in. If you don't struggle with hunger and cravings, you may not need supplements. But if you've been trying to lose weight, and no matter what you do you can't seem to stay on track because of hunger pangs and cravings, then you may need a little outside help.

Taking a supplement stack is the best way to keep your metabolism from slowing down while killing cravings and hunger pangs. This makes it easier to stay on track with your weight loss. The secret is they balance blood sugar levels while providing natural energy. 

This particular stack teaches your body how to burn fat as fuel when it needs energy vs. sending you hunger signals. Your metabolism will become a high-efficiency fat burning machine. Trust me, if you skip them, you'll see and feel the difference. 

The best time to take this stack is three hours after your last meal, when your body starts yelling, "I'm hungry!"

Sip green tea instead of indulging yourself in your usual snack and take your supplements to balance blood sugar levels instead. 

One note — This step is not good for people with less than 10 percent body fat because they will burn muscle for fuel instead of fat. But if you have body fat to lose you have energy stored that can be used instead.

Here is your supplement stack:
  • LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones to accelerate the process and trick your body into acting like a thin person. A lean person will burn fat more efficiently. (If you're highly sensitive to caffeine you may want to skip the Accelerator. The stack will still give you what you need, so follow the steps without Accelerator.)
  • LynFit Carb Edge with Forskolin to help enhance thyroid function and balance blood sugar levels, which is the secret to killing your cravings and managing hunger.
  • LynFit Cutting Edge to force your body to burn off that stubborn body fat for fuel.

    STEP #3: AVOID THE AFTERNOON ENERGY CRASH TO ESCAPE CRAVINGS BEFORE THEY BEGIN

    This step is critical because it will not only boost your metabolism, it will also help fight off those emotional cravings that we all battle in the afternoon when we start to get tired and our blood sugar levels begin to rise.

    This is actually where most people fall off the weight loss wagon. But, it's also where your weight loss battle can be won. I call this the "Emo Meal" — meaning emotional, when you're hungry, tired, and craving food.

    PREVENTION is the cure, so grab a LynFit Lean Bar to defeat the afternoon energy crash.

    The LynFit Lean Bar has 10 grams of prebiotic fiber and 15 grams of protein to kill cravings before they begin while helping to keep you feeling full. LynFit Lean Bars are guaranteed to be the best tasting protein bar you've ever tried and #1 in its class when it comes to weight loss and melting belly fat. Try one; you'll see.

    Most store-bought bars are full of sugar and don't supply your body with the right type or amount of protein. They spike blood sugar levels and prevent you from losing weight, despite what their labels may claim.

    Make LynFit Lean Bars your go-to comfort food from now on when trying to lose weight. Comfort in knowing you're making a smart, nutrient-dense food choice that doesn't sacrifice delicious taste and texture.  LynFit Lean Bars are the best of both worlds — they don't leave you with any guilt, only satisfaction that you'll begin to crave. You can eat your new comfort meal food with pride and get on with your day.

    This will be especially important if you're an emotional eater. Choosing the wrong kinds of snack foods can increase hunger and cravings and turn the weight gain switch on. Swap out those store-bought protein bars with a LynFit Lean Bar instead.

    Should you find yourself unable to suppress the urge to eat junk food, adopt the 80/20 rule. You're already following it; you just don't know it. 

    For the most part, you're eating your favorite foods every couple of weeks — it's inevitable. It's going to happen, and you should expect it. So, the best solution is to plan it ahead of time. If you plan for it ahead of time, you can cheat and still lose weight. Have a little pep talk with yourself. Sit down and tell yourself to try the 80/20 plan. 

    On the Advanced Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan, you can eat on plan 80 percent of the time and go off the plan 20 percent of the time and still lose weight. That's the beauty of this plan. In fact, this is the only plan that takes into consideration that you live in the real world, you're human, and that you cheat once in a while.

    Planning in advance when you cheat also puts you in control of the binge vs. the binge controlling you. It also changes how you emotionally respond to a binge—no guilt, because it's all a part of your weight loss plan. You'll accept the situation, not struggle in vain against it. You'll eat less and know exactly what to eat, and how much. The scale will go up slightly, but you'll be back on track in no time. 

    Although there are physiological consequences to binging on junk food, I'd wager that most of the damage comes from the stress we inflict on ourselves—the internal fight and refusal, which only causes us to binge more. The refusal to accept the inevitable situation, combined with the guilt and shame you're piling on yourself for losing that fight.

    Here's what the 80/20 plan get you: Acceptance! You learn to accept things you cannot change. You're no longer fighting a battle you most likely cannot win. 

    I can't think of anything harder or more stressful than struggling with food. I've struggled with it my entire life until I learned about the 80/20 rule. 

    You can live guilt-free. Guilt about eating junk food can actually cause you to gain weight and depress your immune system. By making a plan to "go off" for a meal as an occasional (1–2 times weekly) deviation from your regular schedule, rather than betraying your body, you remove the guilt. Make a plan, if you plan on losing.

    I would encourage you to read this article I wrote previously about how to cheat and still lose weight to keep your metabolism in full swing, and how if you don't, it can alter the physiological effect it has on you. 

    As Kelly Clarkson says in her song: "Think Before You Cheat" so you don't hurt your health or destroy a month's worth of dieting. Most of the time it's not worth it anyway. 

    So, eat happily, just don't' forget to boost first! 

    Natural Weight Loss Support

    LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones — Natural Weight Loss Support

    Is your weight loss stuck? Does it seem that no matter what you do you can't seem to lose those extra pounds? Chances are, you need a little natural weight loss support. I've been using this custom blend of raspberry ketones mixed with ten synergistically combined, highly effective ingredients with my clients to help control weight and cravings.

    You may have seen me on the Dr. Oz Show when we discussed how powerfully effective they can be. We showed our very own before and after photos of LynFit clients who used LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones successfully to help them lose weight. Sex, age, and thyroid issues had made losing weight a struggle for them. They had also picked up some bad overeating and snacking habits.

    Sex, age, and thyroid issues had made losing weight a struggle for them. They had also picked up some bad overeating and constant snacking habits due to hunger caused by elevated blood sugar levels and head hunger (more on this can be found in the Wall Street Journal Best Seller, The Metabolism Solution).  

    If you missed seeing those dramatic before and after photos, here they are again. You can experience a change like this as well. As always, LynFit doesn't take any before and after photos. We believe in 100 percent real people, with real results, with authentic photos. Results that were accomplished without spending hours upon hours in the gym. Certainly, metabolic workouts will enhance weight loss, but it's not a necessity.

    B&A on Dr. Oz Show

    At this point, it's vital to understand how important quality is. Raspberry ketones are extremely expensive to make. It takes 90 pounds of raspberries to produce one single dose. When you see a free offer or a bottle of raspberry ketones for $9.99, you know it's a scam. Chances are, they were not even derived from raspberries. 

    LynFit uses only the highest quality, pure ingredients — raspberry ketones included. We call this the LynFit Difference. That's how you get the best results while saving you money in the long run. The result is that you lose more weight, more efficiently.

    I spend over 30 hours weekly researching, and searching for, the best crops—testing them before they ever reach a LynFit bottle. If you've ever tried LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones you know just how effective they are. That's why Dr. Oz was so interested in these particular raspberry ketones. In fact, they have now reached celebrity status.

    LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones has helped thousands of people lose weight, and keep it off. It has helped to shape and re-shape some of the toughest bodies due to addressing the underlying issues that were preventing people from losing weight. No matter how hard or often they worked out, they just couldn't get the excess fat to burn off. That is until they started on LyFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones.

    So, what are raspberry ketones? Raspberry ketone is a natural substance that gives raspberries their natural aroma. Believe it or not, this substance is also found in blackberries, cranberries, and kiwi. It has been added to ice cream and cosmetics as a flavorant. Raspberry ketones work best when combined with the correct amounts of certain ingredients such as B vitamins and green tea, just to name a few.

    Raspberry ketones have been around for decades. It is well-known among fitness models, actors, and athletes — and for good reason. It is one of the most effective ways to switch the weight gain switch off, reduce appetite, and kill cravings. It does all this while providing natural energy. 

    As it's more effective when combined with the correct amounts of certain ingredients, you'll find it partnered with these natural ingredients found only in LynFit's formula:

    • Green tea leaf extract
    • Chocolate bean powder
    • White willow bark
    • Black pepper
    • Caffeine (less than a very small cup of coffee — 30mg)

    Why do you need these natural ingredients? Think of it like this — your car needs many different types of fluids to run efficiently: gas, oil, transmission, brake — if you skip even one, your car won't run smoothly. Sometimes, it may not even run at all. Your body is no different.

    Some supplement companies try to sell only the single ingredient. The reason is simple — to increase profits. LynFit cares more about you and your health than the bottom line. Your success is our profit, our bottom line.

    I take LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones, as well as LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse, because I've struggled with my weight, intense cravings, and depression my entire life. Now, at age 48, I need the weight loss support more than ever with menopause at my door. Bottom line — I'm not just the creator/visionary of this custom supplement, I'm also a client and daily user out of need. 

    Where are you today?

    • Do you need to bust through your weight loss plateau? 
    • Are hunger and cravings affecting your weight loss?
    • Do you work out, yet your body still won't shed the weight?
    • Do you wake up feeling depressed, even when nothing is wrong?
    • Do you lack the energy to get through your day, yet alone a workout?

    Then LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones is for you. Helping you with all the above is what it does best. 

    Unlike the popular Garcinia cambogia, 7Keto, and many more "wanna be" supplements, LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones is 100 percent authentic. It will help with the underlying issues that are hindering your weight loss.

    In addition to providing your body with much-needed energy, LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones can also help you:

      • Lose 2–5 pounds every week. If you combine it with the Accelerated Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan and LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse, you can lose one pound per day. The more effort you put into it, the better your weight loss will be.

      • Increase your metabolism, so you'll burn more calories all day—even while asleep. This is especially important because whenever you decrease your calories, your metabolism slows down. Yet, you only lose weight and burn off belly fat when you reduce your daily caloric intake. Natural weight loss support is vital in helping to overcome these issues, especially if you have been overweight, been on the diet yo-yo, and are a female over 35 years of age.

        I use LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones and LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse when training fitness models (most have body fat of 15 percent or less — the hardest bodies to get to shed fat without harming health) to get ready for figure competitions, so you can imagine how effective it can be for you. 

      • Detoxing the body. Being overweight is toxic, so addressing the underlying issues by detoxing your body while burning that stubborn belly fat is
        essential for lasting healthy weight loss, and a leaner you. 

    All these benefits, plus, boosting immunity (weight loss is stressful, which weakens immunity) while.....drum roll, please (and I need these big-time at this stage of my life).....increasing hair growth and improving skin elasticity.  

    If you're ready to lose that weight and burn off that stubborn fat, especially the belly fat that's hanging over your pants (FYI — this is the worst kind of fat and is terrible for your health), you can do exactly as these other people have done.

    I love the Kelly Clarkson song that says, "What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger."  If you want to change your body, you've got to change your life. There's no way around it. No change equals no change. Change IS hard, but it's so well worth it. It will never get easier, but you will get better at doing what you need to do. Practice is the only way out. 

    Here is the simple three-part plan they followed. Don't ever let taking supplements distract you from doing what needs to be done. 

      1. Eat clean, thermogenic food
      2. Take your supplements for weight loss support
      3. Boost your metabolism with a new workout. Or, if you're not fit, start by doing the Recovery Stretch and Lean Core workouts.

    How should you take LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones? Take (1) in the morning another at lunch (if you're over 200 pounds, you may need to take (2) to reach optimal dosage).

    We suggest switching to decaf when using LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones so you can take both doses without feeling over-caffeinated. 

    NOTE: At dinner, add (2–3) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse to your regimen to help digest and assimilate your food instead of storing it as fat. 

    The most popular way for my clients and fitness models to take ketones for optimal results is to open a capsule into the LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Simply put, they drink up their fat loss. Here's a delicious fat-blaster shake recipe for you to try — the Raspberry Ketone Fat Shredder:

    More information about all LynFit supplements, along with over 100 delicious thermogenic recipes, can be found in the Wall Street Journal Best Seller, The Metabolism Solution, and The Metabolism Solution Audiobook.
