Teach Your Body To Burn More Calories All Day Long
Right now your metabolism is busy, working to burn calories and melt fat. Every time you eat, enzymes in your body's cells break down the food and turn it into energy that keeps your heart beating, your mind functioning, and your legs walking. It's the sum of everything your body does. Your metabolism is busier than you might imagine.
The process is quite simple; the faster your metabolism, the more calories your body burns doing everyday functions. The more calories you burn, the easier it is to lose weight. The good news is you can increase your metabolism, so it works harder all day, helping you lose weight faster and easier. You really can teach your body how to burn more calories all day long.
For most of us, our metabolisms hum along at a preset rate /speed determined by age, gender, and genetics. The bad news is, if your over 35, have been overweight or have done your share of diet research (tried many diets), what you might not know could stop you from losing weight and severely affect your body’s ability to burn off excess fat now stored on your belly, hips, and thighs.
The good news is you have a huge amount of control over your metabolic rate—more than you think. Making a few simple changes to your daily routine can boost your metabolism, turning that slow metabolism into overdrive, so you not only lose weight faster and easier, but your body also begins to melt fat.
It can be as easy as eating the right foods vs. the wrong ones. The real secret sauce for building a red hot, sizzling metabolism is to start your day with whey protein. Whey protein not only builds your metabolism, but it also boosts it by 25 percent as well. Be aware; vegan and dairy proteins won't do. It must be high-quality whey protein.
Where can you find this high-quality whey protein? You can find it in both LynFit Complete Protein and LynFit Lean Bars. LynFit whey has the highest PER (Protein Efficiency Rating) due to it containing the amino acid, leucine. LynFit whey is fast-acting and preserves muscle tissue so you won't muscle waste, which slows metabolism. That's why drinking high-quality whey is called "building the metabolism."
Now that you've got your metabolism built up and revving at a high rate, there are still additional issues to overcome to keep the fat burning at full throttle.
If you have excess fat stored around your belly, hips, and thighs, you have enough evidence to point to your blood sugar levels being out of whack, making supplement usage a must if you're serious about melting off that fat and getting lean.
First things first: To get your body to burn fat you need to lower those blood sugar levels. In order to lower blood sugar levels, you need to be eating clean. This is where an effective supplement stack that attacks fat from every angle, starting with appetite suppression and reducing cravings is imperative.
Supplement stacking has been used for decades and is the most efficient way to reach your weight loss and fitness goals, especially when it comes to leaning out and reshaping your body. This technique is highly effective with even the leanest athletes, so, as you can imagine, it's even more effective with people like me and you, because we have more fat to lose. But again, always remember—nothing works better than eating a clean, metabolic boosting diet (more information about thermogenic eating can be found in The Metabolism Solution).
The goal is to teach your body to burn more calories all day long, even when at rest. However, this is almost impossible to do if you're eating excess fat and carbs (refer to The Metabolism Solution for how much fat you should be consuming daily). While you may only care about the end result, it's important that you understand how supplement stacking works. Today, we're going to examine supplement stacking with LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator.
After getting your metabolism boosted, the next step is to lower your blood sugar levels while boosting thyroid production, which tends to slow when you decrease caloric intake. Slowing your thyroid production is exactly what you DON'T want to happen when you're trying to burn off excess fat.
It's natural for thyroid production to slow down as you age and reduce caloric intake, so stimulating it is essential.
NOTE: This is especially critical if you suffer from hypothyroidism. Not to worry if you're currently taking medication for hypothyroidism—in fact, you need it, as thyroid medication doesn't cure the issue; it only treats the symptoms. That's why you didn't lose weight when you began taking it. And that's why this program is designed for you.
The ingredients that work best for thyroid support are Coleus Forskohlii and Guggul extract, both of which are found in LynFit Carb Edge, in the exact amounts your body needs.
LynFit Carb Edge is the best multi-stacker because it helps you manage carbs by killing your cravings for them and blocking them when you do eat them, so you absorb less of them. Even if you're not eating a lot of carbs, it's still important to take LynFit Carb Edge to help balance blood sugar levels and reduce insulin spikes that can occur even when eating healthy foods. White kidney bean extract is wonderful for controlling insulin spikes, and LynFit Carb Edge contains it.
Taking LynFit Carb Edge is the equivalent of taking over 15 of the best fat-burning supplements, all wrapped into one. While this does save you money, more importantly, LynFit Carb Edge is properly blended using the highest quality ingredients, so you'll see and feel results fast.
Every time you take LynFit Carb Edge you get the exact amount of each nutrient, custom-blended for maximum results, saving you time and money. You won't need those other expensive extras that you never take.
THE "B-LEAN TEAM": Your body's need for B vitamins is increased when you're dieting or stressed. The combined action of these B vitamins can be energized quickly and help promote weight loss. They help the body properly metabolize and process foods you eat — B1, B2, B5, B6, and B12.
Niacin, also part of the B Lean Team, also known as B3, has special properties when it comes to fat loss. Niacin helps to release stored toxins stored in fat cells, helping with the detox process and easing cravings when trying to kick bad eating habits.
NOTE: Niacin can make you feel flushed, especially when you first begin taking it. Not to worry—it will pass quickly. The flush is attributable to the niacin working its way through the bloodstream, cleansing it, removing toxins.
Chromium is a mineral that helps move carbohydrates into cells to be used for energy vs. being stored for fat. Chromium also helps balance blood sugar levels to help avoid low energy dips, helping to ease cravings and decrease hunger.
Potassium is a mineral essential for good health and can assist with weight loss. Potassium can improve blood pressure, fatigue, stress, headaches, and glucose transfer, which affect weight. It also helps to maintain proper electrolyte balance in cells.
White kidney bean extract blocks unwanted carbs from being absorbed (great for cheat meal days — you should take it right before your cheat meal, so you don't destroy your diet) and help balance blood sugar levels that being overweight can knock out of whack. It also helps to kill cravings and reduce hunger.
Forskohlii helps heat up the area where fat is being stored while encouraging fat loss in troubling areas. It helps to keep your thyroid function at full capacity, so your metabolism doesn't slow down, even with a reduction in caloric intake. Can you say, "busting through plateaus?"
Guggul extract has too many good things to list, but the main reason it's in LynFit Carb Edge is due to it stimulating thyroid function, so your body burns more fat, even at rest. Guggul also helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides.
Banaba leaf is great for diabetics because it helps reduce and balance blood sugar levels, effectively reducing hunger and cravings while enhancing your metabolism and melting belly fat. Studies have shown that Banaba leaf can help lower blood sugar levels within 60 minutes of taking it.
Black tea is better than green tea when it comes to reducing appetite and boosting weight loss. In European studies, black tea has been shown to reduce the urge to binge, making it the perfect team player when it comes fat burning.
Suma root is an adaptogen that improves cellular health, increasing the body's ability to adapt to metabolic stress and response under stressful conditions.
Tyrosine is an amino acid that helps nourish thyroid function and is also involved in manufacturing other helpful weight loss hormones that regulate metabolism. One of those is norepinephrine, which is one of the key hormones in the body that stimulates thermogenesis and the breakdown of stored body fat.
Alpha lipoic acid breaks down carbohydrates (sugar) and speeds the removal from the bloodstream.
When you restrict your diet to lose fat and combine that with a metabolic boosting workout you may start to feel your energy levels slump. This can cause your cravings to spike up. Supplementing with a thermogenic fat burner that targets your body's fat receptor sites and encourages it to release stored fat may boost energy while minimizing food cravings.
LynFit Accelerator with raspberry ketones and green tea tricks your body into acting like a thin person by raising the metabolic rate and reducing hunger hormones while lowering blood sugar levels. LynFit Accelerator forces your body to release stored fat to be used for fuel while helping to reduce cellulite, effectively breaking down fat and converting it to energy and naturally lowering cholesterol levels.
Raspberry ketones have an anti-obesity effect, meaning they inhibit weight gain. Raspberry ketones do not work well alone; that's why LynFit Accelerator is stacked with the most effective fat loss ingredients such as green tea, chocolate bean powder, B6, and B12.
Green tea boosts metabolism and promotes a feeling of well-being. The truth is when you feel better you eat better.
Chocolate bean powder has been known to create a feeling of fullness and suppress appetite. Chocolate bean powder is loaded with health-protecting antioxidants.
Chromium is a trace mineral that helps lower blood sugar levels, reduce cravings for carbohydrates, and decrease appetite.
B6 and B12 boost energy you need when trying to lose weight. They promote fat loss by boosting metabolism, so you burn more calories all day long. B vitamins help your body metabolize carbs and fats, making them easier to be burned off vs. being stored.
LynFit Accelerator does contain caffeine to ensure delivery of these helpful nutrients. There is no need to worry, however. LynFit Accelerator contains less caffeine than a small (the old-fashioned small) cup of coffee.
For an even better boost, open the capsule and pour the contents into your LynFit Protein Shake. It gets absorbed and utilized by the body faster.
NOTE: If you're prone to anxiety you may want to consider switching to decaf coffee or start slowly by taking ½ a capsule. Avoid caffeine while taking LynFit Accelerator until you see how you feel taking it.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS FAT BURNING COMBO?
- Everyone, male or female, who is trying to lose weight
- Anyone who has fat stored, especially those hard-to-lose places like belly, hips, and thighs
- Anyone who has ever been overweight in their lifetime
- Anyone who has a sluggish, dead metabolism (almost all females)
- Anyone who struggles with blood sugar control (especially diabetic and pre-diabetic)
- Anyone who struggles with cravings for carbs and sugars
- Anyone with low thyroid function or thyroid disease (LynFit Carb Edge can be taken with thyroid medication; however, it's always a good idea to consult with your doctor to make sure)
So, if you feel like you've been doing everything right with diet and exercise, but when hunger strikes your willpower dies, and you need help crushing cravings, LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator are for you.

It's Time To Take A New Approach To Weight Loss
If you have tried every diet on the planet, and no matter what you do you just can't seem to lose weight or get rid of that belly fat, it's time to take a new approach. When it comes to losing weight and changing the way your body looks four simple steps could make weight loss practically effortless. No matter how old you are or how sluggish your metabolism is, this plan works every time.
I was recently on KTNV TV in Las Vegas where we discussed in depth this fast fat-melting approach. Below is a brief transcript of that interview.
HOST: What makes this plan so much more effective than the other plans that are available?
LL: This plan addresses the metabolism issues that are at the center of the problem. Being overweight, eating less in order to lose weight, low energy, age, being female as well as being a "diet researcher" (trying all of the diets) all affect our metabolism making it slower. With each issue mentioned, it makes losing weight impossible unless you address the underlying problem—the speed of your metabolism. But that's not all. This system is backed by science and address’s all of the issues we all struggle with when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off.
HOST: I struggle myself with issues like low energy and cravings. It seems like I have to work twice as hard as my friends to lose weight. I can't seem to get to the gym every day. Does Metabolic Boosting help overcome these issues? Do we have to exercise to lose weight if we use “The Metabolic Boosting” plan?
LL: I was 40 pounds overweight and had tried every diet including becoming vegetarian and over-exercising. I gained weight until I learned these safe, yet highly effective, all-natural methods that can boost even the most sluggish metabolisms. Including metabolisms that are negatively affected by hypothyroidism and menopausal symptoms. In fact, it's the only way to lose weight if your one of these types. No excuses needed.
Here are 4 Simple Steps that anyone can do—no exercise needed. In fact, the wrong exercise or over-exercising can slow down the process.
Step 1: Boost your Metabolism by 25 percent at breakfast with a delicious Complete Protein Metabolic Boosting Smoothie.
Only LynFit's Complete Protein has the right combination of high-quality protein, low carbs, low sugar and almost no fat. Unlike other store bought smoothies, LynFit's Complete Protein encourages weight loss vs. weight gain. That results in the 1 pound a day weight loss.
WHEN? 12 Hours after your last meal.
HOW MUCH? 2 scoops in coffee or water equal no excess calories.
Step 2: Take LynFit Accelerator and jump start your metabolism naturally.
This step accelerates the weight loss process naturally and is highly effective at recalibrating your appetite, which helps to keep you feeling fuller longer. LynFit Accelerator kills cravings while making it easier to burn fat easier due to the raspberry ketones in it.
WHEN? First thing in the morning with a Complete Protein Shake. You can take them separately, but for the best results it's better to take them together.
HOW MUCH? One capsule daily. Unlike other store-bought brands, you don't need as much, and you'll see better, faster results.
Step 3: Convince your body to burn off that stubborn fat with LynFit Cutting Edge.
This step pulls/lures the fat that's circulating in your system and drags it into the cells to be burned off and used as fuel. It also helps reduce cellulite, controls hunger, lowers cholesterol, and accelerates the fat loss process. Making it easier to lose that stubborn unsightly belly fat.
WHEN? Take this 3 hours after the breakfast
HOW MUCH? 1 capsule
Step 4: Boost, Block, and Burn by taking LynFit Carb Edge 3 hours after Step 3.
Carb Edge helps further reduce and control cravings while lowering blood sugar levels that are responsible for intense cravings. This step is specifically/strategically placed here mid-day as those are the times we crave the most, blood sugar levels rise and our diets get off course. Carb Edge has an added feature we all need…..it contains White Kidney Bean Extract. If you take it before you cheat and eat carbs, it blocks 65 percent of them from being absorbed, preventing weight gain. Imagine eating a whole donut and absorbing less.
WHEN: After Step 3 or when needed before meals.
HOW MUCH? 1 capsule
When you combine these four simple steps with a fuss-free, no-calorie-counting, delicious, thermogenic dinner, you're guaranteed to lose 1 pound a day.
The Metabolism Solution plan is the only plan that allows you to lose weight the very same day you start while you're learning how to eat for lifelong weight loss. Why wait to lose when you can lose weight today?

Play 'Diet Detective' To Find Weight Loss Solutions
If you're trying to lose weight or your weight loss has stopped, this message is for you. In The Metabolism Solution, I teach you how to lose 1 pound every day the fast and easy way. The metabolic boosting program is the no-fuss way to lose weight and melt belly fat.
First things first, however. Before you can move forward with your weight loss to overcome the inevitable plateaus you've got to know your numbers. Sometimes you will have to play 'diet detective' to find the solutions to your weight loss problems. Questions like: Do you know how many fat grams you're eating every day? When was the last time you counted your carbs?
Many of us don't have a clue about how many fats and carbs we consume every day. This is exactly what stops us from losing weight. If you don't know your numbers, you'll never know when you're overeating.
In this blog entry, we're going to look at some of the biggest mistakes I see people make when they're trying to lose weight when thinking they're eating healthy and they really aren't.
ALERT: IF YOU'RE OVER 40-YEARS-OLD AND FEMALE, YOU WON'T LOSE WEIGHT
WITHOUT KNOWING YOUR NUMBERS
Let's get started by taking the Diagnose Your Diet Quiz to see where you might be slipping up. Don't forget to read "Food Sins That Stop Weight Loss" in The Metabolism Solution for more information.
SLIP-UP #1: You're eating a seemingly healthy bowl of bran flakes for breakfast each morning
SLIP-UP #2: The so-called healthy Turkey Wrap lunch
While this wrap may seem healthier than a burger, hot dog, fries, etc.,—is it? Wraps contain more carbs and fat grams than most of us realize. This puts the brakes on weight loss and acts to accelerate weight gain. That's not even taking into account the fat and carbs included with the dressing in the wrap.
Slimming Solution: Grab a lean salad instead, but be careful how you top it. The absolute best method to lose that 1 pound every day and lose that muffin top in time for bathing suit season is to have another LynFit metabolic boosting Complete Protein Shake with a vegetable salad dressed only with plain vinegar. This will give your metabolism the boost it needs to shed pounds and melt fat fast. If you feel you need to chew, swap out the Shake with a LynFit Lean Bar.
SLIP-UP #3: The so-called Slimming Salad
I almost passed out when I first started trying to lose weight and switched from burgers to salads. I was gaining weight instead of losing. Little did I realize that the salads contained more calories, carbs and fats than those "unhealthy" burgers. Who knew? That's why it's imperative that you know your numbers before you dig into that salad.
Slimming Solution: Go heavy on the leafy greens and always swap out fatty meats and chicken for some fish. Remember: The lighter and whiter the fish the better for your metabolism. Just by swapping out your chicken for fish you can jumpstart your weight loss and help you bust through that plateau you've been stuck at.
Need more healthy, slimming, irresistibly delicious recipes? Over 100 of them can be found in The Metabolism Solution.
Your Weight Problem May Be The Government's FaultEvery day I have people crying out to me in despair saying, “I have always been able to eat this food without gaining weight and now when I eat it I gain 5 pounds immediately." Or “I track everything I eat in XYZ app and yet I still can’t lose belly fat." Trying to find the reasons for this is a little bit harder than it used to be. You may think you’re eating the right way, but you aren’t. It’s getting harder to teach people the “why’s” behind all these dilemmas, and that’s because you have to unlearn pretty much what you’ve been taught about food portions and labels. I had to forget everything I had learned and start fresh. Only then did I begin to lose weight in spite of my slow metabolism.
Because there is so much confusion over what a correct serving size is there is no standard reference point for you to determine what the appropriate amount of food to eat is. Let alone what you should be eating in the first place. Package labels differ so much from brand to brand that you cannot assume that the same amount of low-fat potato chips, say 15 chips per serving, doesn’t change from one brand to the next. Guess what? It does.
You might think that in this day and age labeling and servings would be designed by a more scientific approach. I always assumed that serving sizes are calculated to goals. So if you are trying to lose weight, you should eat this certain amount, but if you are attempting to gain or maintain it would be a different amount. Makes perfect sense that serving sizes should be different when you’re a 6-foot tall 30-year-old man and a 4-foot 9-inch woman who is 55. But how is it that growing children, teens, and people who are active are told to use the same serving sizes that you are when trying to lose weight and shrink your waistline? Have you ever thought of it this way? Shouldn’t serving sizes be a little bit different if you are tall or short or whether you have lots of muscle or very little muscle? Ideally, shouldn’t serving sizes factor in the rate you burn calories, take into account your metabolism’s speed?
I speak from my personal experience and the experiences of all the people I have helped over the years. Every time I tried to follow the food pyramid recommendations put forth by the U.S. government— and, by the way, I was meticulous about serving sizes—I still gained weight. My metabolism is so slow that if I even look at ½ a serving of pasta I gain 5 pounds, yet my 6-foot tall and fairly active husband skips pasta at one meal and loses 10 pounds. (Okay, so that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but it sure feels like it.) I’m hoping this gets you thinking. You have to be your own detective when it comes to losing weight.
Serving guidelines cannot serve as gospel, but merely as a rough gauge. The scale will show you every time if you’re on the right track. If the scale isn’t moving, you’re still eating too much or eating the wrong foods for your metabolism. It’s often a food you just can’t let go of (a little cream in the coffee, perhaps?) but need to. I urge you to follow my plan. It is guaranteed to work every time. Don’t stop following these principals until you have lost all that fat you have hated for years. Your weight gain (or lack of weight loss) is not all your fault. Serving sizes (food choices, too) are mostly to blame.
Take away—follow the metabolic boosting plan and you're guaranteed to lose 1 pound a day. If you're not, you're eating too much. It's that simple. It works when you work it!
Fast, Healthy Weight Loss
Are you getting ready for the beach, graduation, prom or a wedding but can’t stay on your diet and fitness plan? This can be overwhelming for anyone.
The good news is that anyone can boost their metabolism by doing these two things:
- Working out first thing in the morning at home, on an empty stomach to boost metabolism and endorphins.
- When we feel better we eat better it’s that simple. Not to mention metabolic exercise reshapes your body without bulking and boosts metabolism which helps you lose weight and see results within the first week.
Intense exercise increases cortisol levels temporarily, but metabolic and lower intensity exercise seems to reduce them. University of California researchers say that metabolic exercise may blunt some of the negative effects of stress. Not to mention the increase in endorphins you feel that decrease appetite and increase a feeling of well-being. It's important to note that not all exercise is created equal. Metabolic exercise is the perfect combination of moves without overdoing it, which creates more stress in the body and higher cortisol levels.
Your morning meal sets the stage for the rest of your day, so start if off right. This step “offsets” calories you eat so if you're not so perfect you still lose weight—guaranteed.
Boost at breakfast by drinking a metabolic boosting whey protein shake. Whey is full of amino acids that nourish the body, improve mood and boost immunity, while providing lasting energy. Drinking a whey protein shake blocks cortisol to flip the hunger switch back to off. Whey Protein boosts metabolism 25% and provides natural energy so you feel better fast. It provides the right nutrients your body needs to combat stress, which kills cravings for fast weight loss. Repeat this step for lunch as well.
You can expect to fall off your diet, so plan for it ahead of time. We are all human and that’s exactly why you drank the shake for breakfast. Most plans don’t allow for this and that's why they fail. It's not your fault but the plan that’s faulty.
What makes the metabolic boosting strategy so successful (by the way, everyone loses weight on this plan) is that you need your metabolism boosted and running at optimal speed, so when you cheat you don’t gain an ounce. This also makes room for the human things we do.
Here are a few examples of the “cheats” most people do that stop them from losing weight. Most of the time people will say: “I only ate a little”. Sadly that’s all it takes to stop weight loss.
- Excess fats: nuts, avocados and cheese
- Excessive protein of the wrong kind: Chicken, salmon – more than 3 ounces
- Excessive carb intake: fruit, wraps, protein bars , drinks and smoothies
For more information about these tips and other metabolic boosting steps, refer to "The Metabolism Solution".
Metabolic Mistakes That Stop Weight Loss
Click on the video above to watch Lisa on "CT Style" discussing How to Lose Weight and Keep it Off
When it comes to losing weight most of us focus on the big things, but it's the little things that usually keep us from losing weight. Those little things we all do that seem so unimportant that we don’t even write them in our journals.
What you don’t know can hurt your weight loss. In fact, it may even stop you from losing weight; especially if you're female, over 35 years old, diabetic, or have a thyroid condition (all apply). Don't shoot the messenger. I don't make the rules and I certainly still struggle with some of these myself. If you’re not losing weight, listen up, these are for you.
Here are the Top 5 Metabolic Mistakes I see on food journals every day that stop weight loss dead in its tracks:
Metabolic Mistake #1: You Think Juicing Is Good For You
While juicing does supply some nutrients your body doesn't know the difference between sugar that came from juicing or candy. It still elevates blood sugar levels which stop fat loss and slow weight loss.
Do this instead: Drink a Complete Whey Protein Shake. You’ll boost your metabolism 25%, block cortisol which helps melt belly fat, and you'll be providing your body with nutrients it needs to stay healthy, allowing you to lose 1 pound per day. Drinking a Complete Protein Shake is fast, easy and delicious. All you have to do is drink. Don't add fruit.
Metabolic Mistake #2: When It Comes To Weight Loss You Think All Snack Bars Are Created Equal
Not! In fact, snack bars that cost .50 cents are loaded with nothing but sugar. They are expensive cookies in my book. You know the drill when it comes to sugar and weight loss, the less sugar you eat the easier it is to lose weight.
Do this instead: Replace your current protein or snack bar with a Lean Bar and you'll boost your metabolism 25%. Lean Bars are made with the same high quality protein that the Complete Protein Shake is made with. You'll lose weight faster and melt belly fat. You’ll also be saving calories, carbs, and fat while adding 10 grams of fiber to your diet. That's always good for weight loss. LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar on the market that uses high quality protein. That’s what’s best for weight loss.
Metabolic Mistake #3: You Eat Too Much Chicken And Salmon
When it comes to weight loss not all proteins are created equal. Chicken and salmon both have more fat than you realize which adds calories and slows weight loss. It stops belly fat from melting off. We tend to forget to weigh and measure our proteins and this slows our weight loss. Always stick to 3 ounce servings.
Do this instead: Eat more white fish and less chicken and salmon. Remember, the lighter and whiter the fish the better for your metabolism and the faster and easier it will be for you to lose weight and melt belly fat. If your weight is stuck try eating more white fish and less chicken.
Metabolic Mistake #4: You Think Fruit Is Good For Weight Loss
Fruit does have some nutritional value but it also spikes blood sugar the same way juice does. Most of us don't know what a serving size of fruit is. If your weight loss is stuck and you have belly fat you want to melt off eat less fruit, or at least stick to a serving size, which is ½ a cup.
Do this instead: Swap your fruit for green veggies such as celery, or anything green for that matter, and you'll lose weight faster and feel fuller longer. Vegetables don’t cause blood sugar spikes the way fruit does so you'll feel fuller and eat less. Just make sure you're not dipping it into calorie loaded hummus or high calorie dip. Look for zero calorie dips or salad dressings instead if you’re trying to melt belly fat.
Metabolic Mistake #5: You think All Exercise Is Created Equal When It Comes To Losing Weight
While all exercise beats the couch, it's not all great for weight loss. Movement burns calories but exercises like zumba counts as cardiovascular exercise. Yoga which is great for stress relief and stretching and last but not least, Cross Fit, which can be too intense and not only stop weight loss but can cause weight gain unless you're under 30 and live stress free. All exercise is stress to your body but none of these are "the best" when it comes to losing weight and burning excess fat; especially around the hips, butt and thighs.
Do this instead: Metabolic boosting workouts are the very best when it comes to tightening, firming and reshaping your body. Unlike other forms of exercise, they are specifically geared for weight loss. You’ll see results within one week and they take only 30 minutes to complete. Just three metabolic boosting workouts a week and you’ll be boosting your metabolism making it easier for you to lose weight and melt fat. If you’re not seeing results stop what you're currently doing in the gym and try metabolic boosting workouts for 2 weeks. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your body and how fast you lose weight. Less time plus faster weight loss who doesn't want that?

What You Can Do Right Now To Lose WeightOn my blogs and in my newsletters I post about the most effective ways to lose 1 pound a day, even with a slow/hypothyroid metabolism. I provide delicious recipes and supplement ideas to help you overcome the cravings and lack of energy from time to time that we all struggle with. This year, due to some horrifically cold weather and lots of snow, people seem to be struggling more than ever.
I don't know about you, but I struggle much more when it's cold outside. The only thing I want to do is eat and sleep. That being said, I still want to fit into my clothes when spring finally rolls around. I would like to tell you about 4 things I never stop doing no matter how much I may want to. They keep my metabolism running fast, making it harder to gain weight while making it easier to lose.
Get up and move every day, no excuses. I walk for 60 minutes daily - period. It's the only way I nail the 10,000 steps that our body requires. This weather is the perfect example why I suggest everyone own a treadmill and not rely on getting to a gym or going outside.
Drink my shake after my 60 minute walk. I hate my Protein Shake cold so I make it the night before and keep it in the refrigerator, allowing me more time to sleep in. I use a small milk frother to make it fluffy and delicious. Just like those fattening, expensive beverages that we all like from places like Starbucks. If I crave milk or cream in my coffee I use a little of the pre-made shake in my coffee instead.
I also struggle with dinner this time of year because I crave comfort food. Slimming salads are not appealing so I reach for chicken soup for my metabolism or a sauteed salad to satisfy my cravings and fill me up. This type of eating allows me to stay on course while eating as much as I want without feeling guilty. You can find all the recipes you would ever need in my book, The Metabolism Solution.
I never stop taking my supplements. If I did, my cravings would win and I would struggle to function or even get out of bed for that matter. Every LynFit supplement was created to solve a real-life problem. I battled with making sure to keep the quality high so you can actually feel the difference while being 100% safe.
One of the most popular questions I get every day is, "what do you take and how, when, how much?". Here is my current routine. This is a real-time, real-life look into my life. Warts and all. I pray that this helps you feel better fast.
4:30am: Thyroid medicine
4:45am: Walk at least 60 minutes on the treadmill
5:45am: Melt-fat mochaccino shake. I never add any type of milk, fruit or anything that adds calories. I battle with weight enough so I never add additional calories.
(1) LynFit Accelerator, (1) LynFit Cutting Edge, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit D3-Boost
Off to see clients......
9:00am: (1) LynFit Daily Power Shot pre-workout
9:15am: Metabolic boosting workout group. I do the metabolic workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday religiously because it's only 30 minutes and I like the way it tightens, tones and reshapes my body fast without bulking. I also need the metabolic boost it provides compared to all the other workouts. You can learn more about the metabolic workouts HERE.
10:00am: My brunch/lunch. (1) LynFit Chocolate Lean Bar with hot tea. Yes, I should have a shake but I have a Lean Bar instead unless I've been really bad with my eating.
1:00pm: Green apple and small (kid's size) fat free, sugar free yogurt. This is my indulgence.
(1) LynFit D3-Boost, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit Carb Edge (I'll take 2 Carb Edge if the cravings are really bad).
If I'm on the road and afraid I'll forget, or I'm struggling with food cravings or low energy/depressed, I'll take the Carb Edge at 10:00am with my brunch/lunch.
I focus on work, not food, by staying super busy. If I need a mental work break I'll work on my projects or charities.
3:00pm: Stretch to relieve physical and mental stress while overseeing my kids' homework.
6:00pm: (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse (3 - if hormones affect my regularity). I'll have a huge serving of Ciambotta on a bed of lettuce or sauteed salad with shrimp or tilapia. Some nights I will skip the protein at dinner to avoid chicken, which slows/stops my weight loss and causes my body to gain weight fast.
Here's the kicker; night is the worst time for me, no matter how much I eat. So I leave a little wiggle room for myself all day by keeping my food clean and staying busy. Learn more about Metabolism Mind Games in "The Metabolism Solution".
7:30pm: After dinner (yes, I know my meals aren't spaced 3 hours apart - I live in the real world too) I have a small tea cup that I put ¼-½ cup of water in with (1) scoop of Complete Protein Shake. I eat it with a spoon like cake batter that we all love - chunks and all. I love licking the spoon and this satisfies my insatiable sweet tooth. If the weather is nice I'll go walk the dogs instead. This helps me lose the 5 pounds I inevitably gain every winter.
9:00pm: By 9:00pm I'm fighting to stay awake so I take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep and dive under the covers with my dogs.
I'm all about total transparency and letting you see how human I am. I'm no different than you. The most important thing I can teach you is that when you fall off; and you will, learn how to get up fast and brush yourself off, forgive yourself, and start over at your next meal. I hope this helps you battle your way through the remaining winter days.
Tomorrow is a new day and provides a new start. Just don't wait until a few days from now. Do.......it.......now. Your someday is today!
No Excuses, Stay Strong!
Slim Down Post-Super Bowl: The Morning After Diet
"Prepare to Overeat". Yes, I said "Prepare to Overeat". You cannot live life in a bubble so there will be times when you will have to face the reality of overeating. For many of you, this past weekend was a prime example.
Did you know that this past Sunday was the #2 biggest eating day of the year? According to recent statistics, Super Bowl and non-Super Bowl watchers alike consumed 1,200 calories in snacks alone this past Sunday. Not only that, drinkers clogged up their liver with excessive consumption of alcohol. The worst part - the foods we chose to consume; pizza, avocados, chips, chicken wings, soda and beer, are the worst when it comes to losing weight.
Super Bowl Sunday is just one of many examples we could use. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, job parties, holidays - there's just too many to name all of them. Did you know that the mental struggle of trying to figure out what you can and cannot do at these "life events" can be just as traumatic as the overeating itself? That's why you need to go ahead and enjoy this life that God provided for you, but do it in such a way that recovery from these overeating events is guaranteed and any weight gain is minimal.
Here are 3 Super Survivor Tricks to stop weight gain before it happens when you overeat.
THE NIGHT BEFORE THE EVENT: WEIGHT LOSS BOOST
Drink a tall glass of water to help your body detox and pop (1) LynFit Lean Sleep with melatonin (5mg) to help offset the oxidative stress caused by over indulging and boost calorie burn.
Melatonin is an important brown fat regulator. Brown fat burns calories which is exactly what we need after a bad day of eating and drinking.
THE DAY AFTER THE EVENT: EAT THERMOGENICALLY
This can be as simple as drinking a clean whey LynFit Protein Shake to turn up the heat; boosting your metabolism and re-calibrating your appetite, which turns off cravings so your blood sugar level goes back to normal. Do not add juice or milk. Mix with ½ cup of berries for more antioxidant boosting power to help ease a morning after headache.
Bonus Boost: Open (1) capsule of LynFit Carb Edge and add it directly to your protein shake for faster absorption and better results. Carb Edge will help get those blood sugar levels back on track. And that hangover you're feeling - it's from excessive carbs and alcohol consumption which turns to sugar in our bodies when broken down. You can also take (1-2) Carb Edge before you cheat to block the absorption of unwanted carbs without nasty side effects.
Eating more sugar and carbs prolongs things so balancing blood sugar is the secret. For extra prevention you can take (1) Carb Edge before you start eating. It contains white kidney bean extract that helps prevent carbs from being absorbed so you can eat more at your event but absorb less carbs. Not that I'm suggesting that you eat more, but realizing that you more than likely will.
AFTER THE EVENT: DON'T EAT IN BETWEEN MEALS - DRINK WATER INSTEAD
Drink water or tea instead to fuel your slow, damaged metabolism. If you really overdid it at your event you can have a green apple to help regulate your blood sugar levels, but that's it. Remember, you probably ate enough at your event to last a week so you won't starve.
Think About It:
- It takes roughly 3 hours of walking for the average person to burn off 12 calories
- Each beer sets you back 150 calories and takes 1 hour to clear your system
- 1 chip dunked into dip is 80 calories
- 6 wings = 990 calories
- 2 handfuls of Cheetos™ takes 1 hour of intense running to burn off
- 3 sodas = 57 minutes of running to burn off
- 3 beers = 3 hours of running to burn off
Bottom line, when you overeat - and you will, take measures beforehand to plan and prepare your body as much as possible. Then in the days following, get right back on the plan and take the extra steps outlined above to help your body recover as quickly as possible.
