Super Bowl Survival Without Gaining a Pound
Surviving the Super Bowl without gaining a pound isn't as difficult as you might think.
While there are many different weight loss solutions out there, the best way to combat weight gain is to boost your metabolism. By boosting your metabolic engine you'll be burning more calories by the time you walk into your Super Bowl party or indulge from your couch. And, those not-so-healthy calories won't show up on your scale the morning after.
Boosting your metabolism for the Super Bowl requires a three-step metabolic gameplan — boost at breakfast and again at lunch for maximum prevention; then again pre-game (30 minutes or one hour prior to game time).
METABOLIC BOOST #1: YOUR FIRST DOWN PLAY
Boost your metabolism the morning of and the morning after by drinking a LynFit Metabolic Boosting Whey Protein Shake, made with water and ice, exactly 12 hours after your last meal. Save on calories by flavoring your shake with non-caloric ingredients like vanilla or coconut extracts or black coffee. But don't add fruit, milk or juices as they will spike your blood sugar and make it easier to gain weight. You don't need any additional calories so save yourself the trouble and keep your shake simple.
I'd recommend trying the LynFit Energizer Protein Shake. I know you'll love it! I enjoy eating the froth with a spoon for a little trick play. Additionally, drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake blocks cortisol levels from rising, which can cause weight gain. The Super Bowl can be stressful enough as is without adding more stress to it.
With your morning LynFit Complete Protein Shake, take these supplements to turn off the weight gain switch:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
NOTE: If you're taking LynFit Accelerator Advanced, take that instead of the LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge
METABOLIC BOOST #2: YOUR SECOND DOWN PLAY
At brunch/lunch on game day, repeat your first down play by drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake made with water and ice and take these supplements:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
NOTE: If you're taking LynFit Accelerator Advanced, take that instead of the LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge
GAME-CHANGING METABOLIC BOOST #3: YOUR THIRD DOWN SCORING PLAY
In football, the third down play is the most critical. And with your Super Bowl Survival, it's no different. This is the money down. It's time to go for the score.
One hour before kickoff, or before you leave for your party, hit repeat and drink a LynFit Complete Protein Shake with water and ice and take these supplements:
- (1) LynFit Accelerator
- (1) LynFit Carb Edge
- (1) LynFit Cutting Edge
NOTE: If you're taking LynFit Accelerator Advanced, take that instead of the LynFit Accelerator and LynFit Carb Edge
By following this Super Bowl survival gameplan you are protecting yourself from weight gain as well as enhancing your health. It's like eating a little more but absorbing a little less.
You can add in a little flea-flicker play to catch the opponent (weight gain) off guard as well. Take 2–3 LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse right before you start eating. You'll wake up feeling less bloated and you'll be right on track with your weight loss. Hit replay the next morning and you're set up for success.
As with any hard-fought game, the morning after may require some recovery. Try my LynFit Fat-Melting Flat White Complete Protein Shake for a fast recovery for a food or alcohol hangover.

Enjoy your Super Bowl party while knowing you can survive without gaining a pound. And may your favorite team win!
Boost Nutrient Intake to Improve Weight Loss & Melt Belly Fat
Losing weight and exercising can make us feel exhausted, hungry, and cranky. And, if you're one of those people who think they don't need to take supplements, you'll want to hear this.
According to a study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, 40 percent of adults are low in some nutrients. This study also found that overweight people consumed up to 12 percent fewer vitamins and minerals compared to adults of a healthy weight. These vitamin deficiencies contribute to the underlying issues that can make losing weight seemingly impossible.
Lack of energy, intense hunger, cravings for the wrong kinds of foods, low thyroid output and function, and hormonal imbalance (including high blood sugar levels) all play a role in our weight loss or lack of.
The study also proves that these vitamin deficiencies could be making you fat. Vitamins A and D are essential for weight loss and keeping the weight off. They help regulate hunger hormones and govern fat cells. Some nutrients dictate whether we store fat or burn it off.
Shedding pounds shouldn’t mean shedding nutrition. Our nutrient intake increases when we change our eating and exercise habits to lose weight (yes, even when it's for the better). Without realizing it, we might inadvertently cut out essential nutrients, and that sabotages weight loss success and undermines health and well-being.
These deficits in vitamins, minerals, and essential nutrients can make us feel terrible, suffer from exhaustion, depressed, and anxious. Additionally, it can lead to joint aches and pain associated with slow healing injuries, like an old football injury, which keeps you up at night, preventing you from working out. They can also lead to undesirable effects that hinder your weight loss efforts by making it harder to stick to a healthy eating regimen.
The solution can be as simple as taking LynFit Daily Power Shot (it contains over 90 essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals) and drinking at least one LynFit Complete Protein Shake (it got its name because it contains all of the amino acids your body and brain needs, in exactly the amount needed) each day.
Here are a few solutions to health problems that will help you feel better the same day you start. You'll find it easier to stay strong, motivated, happier, and healthier during your weight loss journey.
YOU STRUGGLE WITH HUNGER AND CRAVE THE WRONG FOODS
The #1 reason we struggle with hunger and crave the wrong foods is that we undereat the right kind of protein and overeat the wrong kind. It's easy to conquer your cravings and fend off overeating and keep yourself on track losing weight by supplementing your diet.
Protein and fiber help you feel full longer due to them taking a while to be completely digested, so they remain in the stomach longer than other foods. This nourishes the body and brain with what they need and helps stabilize blood sugar levels. In turn, reducing cravings and turning off hunger.
For most who struggle with weight loss, this can be difficult to do unless you have a tool like LynFit Complete Protein Shake or LynFit Lean Bars. I find most of us who live in the real world either don't eat, or we eat the wrong things.
I suggest keeping an abundant supply of the right kind of proteins on hand that boost metabolism such as LynFit Complete Protein Shake and Lean Bars, and tuna packets, instead of relying on nuts, cheeses, or yogurts that are not complete proteins and may stop you from losing weight.
Keep fiber-rich snacks on hand like celery instead of carrots, grapefruits and green apples instead of bananas and other high sugar fruits that spike insulin levels. These foods are the best options when it comes to regulating hunger between meals.
HYDRATE YOUR BODY WITH H2O TO BOOST METABOLISM BY 3 PERCENT
Only 22 percent of us drink the suggested 8–10 cups of water daily. And, 75 percent of Americans suffer from chronic dehydration. Water is critical for more than your metabolism; it also helps keep your digestive system—not to mention your entire body—functioning well. Most importantly, it also helps you feel full.
An Institute for Public Health and Water Research study recently showed that participants who drank two cups of water before a meal ate fewer calories than people who drank no water at all. Water also helps energize our muscles and helps to keep them pliable which can reduce aches and pains caused from tight, stiff muscles. Cells that don't maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel, so if you want to look and feel better drink up!
YOU FEEL WEAK AND TIRED
A daily, sustainable exercise and healthy eating lifestyle will inject new energy into every aspect of your life. However, if you find that you feel exhausted and weak, you may have some nutritional deficiencies that can be easily fixed with smart, consistent use of the right supplements.
Most people don't realize that weight loss and exercise create an increased demand for nutrients on the body, and if we aren't supplementing our diets correctly, imbalances are more than likely to occur. Here are the most overlooked nutrients and the simple solutions to filling in your nutrient gaps.
Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide. Iron metabolism is unusual because it is controlled by absorption which is why it's best to supplement to ensure that your body gets what it needs and can readily absorb it.
LynFit takes this seriously, and that's why we created LynFit Daily Power Shot and LynFit Thyro-Boost in liquid form. Both of these products contain organic sources of iron because that's the way Iron is absorbed best. When nutrients are absorbed better, they won't " build up" the way other forms of iron can.
A lack of Iron may cause hormonal imbalance because it inhibits the production of female hormones such as progesterone and estrogen. This imbalance makes you feel tired and out of breath and your health suffers greatly.
Iron helps your body transport oxygen through the bloodstream and is an essential mineral for metabolism and energy. A lack of iron in the diet means your muscles aren’t storing and using oxygen efficiently and may lead to anemia and feelings of extreme exhaustion. I strongly suggest that everyone who is exercising, losing weight, or under stress, supplement with LynFit Daily Power Shot and LynFit Thyro-Boost to ensure adequate intake.
Here are a few symptoms caused by inadequate iron intake:
- Fatigue and weakness
- Pale skin and gums
- Heart palpitations
- Feeling cold
- Brittle hair
- Slowed mental reactions/cognitive function
- White spots on your fingernails
So if you've been feeling tired, and you get out if breath easily, you may need to be more vigilant about getting adequate iron. But getting your iron intake isn't as easy as grabbing any old iron supplement off the shelf or chowing down on a steak (red meat has too much fat for weight loss). It's all about how your body absorbs the nutrients, not how much to take in.
Most pharmacy and store-bought iron supplements are synthetic forms of iron, derived from oxides and heavy metals. They are not as readily absorbed and may lead to constipation which in turn makes you feel even worse.
The solution is to get your iron needs met by consuming organic, botanical sources (like the iron in LynFit Daily Power Shot or Thyro-Boost) instead because they are easier to digest, better absorbed, and therefore more usable by the body.
LynFit Tip: Take 2–3 droppers of LynFit Thyro-Boost throughout the day, or simply add it to your LynFit Complete Protein Shake each day
The B Vitamins
B vitamins are necessary for cell metabolism and energy production. In fact, nearly every cell in the body uses them to create energy.
Vitamin B-12 is particularly important to energy production, and a deficiency can lead to anemia, according to the National Institutes of Health. Since your body does not make vitamin B-12 on its own, you need to consume it regularly. You can get B-12 from animal-based foods like fish, lean meat, poultry or eggs, as well as from supplements such as LynFit Daily Power Shot and LynFit Accelerator.
LynFit TIP: Take one (1) ounce of LynFit Daily Power Shot each day when you get up or mid-morning when you need it most.
Giving up our not-so-good habits and making lifestyle changes can change your mood as well as your emotional outlook. It's a good sign that you're doing something different, and that's a good thing. It's how we make changes and get results. If you feel
If you feel agitated, frustrated, angry, or like you can't control your emotions, improving your sleep habits can help you regain balance and improve mood.
Sleep is crucial, especially when it comes to weight management, which includes daily exercise. Recent research suggests chronic sleep deprivation may increase the likelihood of weight gain and leave you feeling irritable, stressed, and craving the wrong kinds of foods.
A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed women who slept five hours or fewer per night had a 15 percent higher risk of becoming obese. If you’re having trouble falling asleep or maintaining a regular sleep schedule, consider adding LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin to your night time supplement regimen along with LynFit Pure Omega 3.
Melatonin supplements the melatonin your body produces naturally to help maintain your internal clock and sleep cycle. Most of us are severely lacking in melatonin, and our sleep patterns are disrupted due to the amount of time we spend in front of computer screens, cell phones, and watching TV. We do not spend enough time outside in daylight which affects our circadian rhythms and wrecks our sleep quality.
I suggest that everyone takes 1–2 LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin and one (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3. You'll have the best nights sleep ever.
LynFit Tip: I suggest keeping your LynFit Lean Sleep and LynFit Pure Omega next to your toothbrush, so you don't forget to take them. Take one (1) Lean Sleep and one (1) Pure Omega at 9 p.m. or before you go to bed. Take another Pure Omega 3 when you wake up and brush your teeth. You'll not only sleep better, but the Pure Omega 3 will help your body heal.
LYNFIT BONUS — A DELICIOUS LYNFIT COMPLETE PROTEIN RECIPE
Blueberry Dream (Clafoutis)
After visiting France with my family, you can bet we came back with a few new not-so-healthy habits. We loved this dessert so much I decided to give it a metabolic makeover so we can eat it whenever we feel like it.
Clafoutis (French pronunciation: [klafuti]) is a baked French dessert of fruit that’s traditionally made with black cherries and arranged in a buttered loaf pan or dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. Clafoutis are almost always dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm, sometimes with cream, which is a diet deal-breaker — until now. This recipe transforms clafoutis into a thermogenic dessert for under 90 calories!

Cooking time: 20 minutes
(1/3 cup) Melt fat milk (stir two scoops of Vanilla Complete Protein powder with 1/3 cup of water)
(3 tbsp) Oats
(2) Egg whites
(1 tbsp) LynFit Complete Protein Vanilla Whey
(1/3 cup) Blueberries or berries of choice (*Frozen works great)
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2. Place oats in food processor or blender and process until the oats look similar to oat flour.
3. Add whey, egg, melt fat milk together with the oats and process until ingredients are well blended. Add berries last.
4. Spray loaf pan with spray oil and transfer mixture to loaf pan.
5. Bake for 20 minutes at 450 degrees
6. Enjoy warm or cold.
The Best Protein for Weight Loss and Health
If you're not losing weight and melting off belly fat, your protein choices may be to blame. Here's the "411" on why whey protein is the best when it comes to weight loss and melting off stored fat.
Some proteins can boost metabolism and speed up weight loss, while others may slow it down and stop weight loss from occurring at all. Certain proteins have been used by people looking to add bulk and gain weight, and it's critical that you know the difference between the two, allowing you to choose the protein that's right for you, helping you reach your goals. LynFit Complete Protein is not only the best tasting whey protein, but it also provides the best health and nutrition benefits.
Protein is an essential nutrient when it comes to keeping your body healthy and maintaining our busy lifestyles; yet, most of us are deficient in it. This sets us up for lackluster health and slows our metabolism. But before you grab that pre-made (ready to drink) protein shake, you're going to want to know all of the miraculous things this nutrient can do for you and how to choose the right kind.
You'll also need to know how much and when you should consume it for maximum weight loss and health boost. More importantly, why LynFit Complete Protein does this better than any other protein you can buy.
PREVENTS HUNGER AND KILLS CRAVINGS
When it comes to killing cravings and preventing hunger, nothing satisfies like protein. Since protein takes longer to digest it makes you feel fuller longer; great news if you're trying to lose or maintain your weight, especially if you're prone to snacking on unhealthy snacks. A recent study in Nutrition Research (please site ) also reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein reported feeling fuller and consumed
A recent study in Nutrition Research reported that people who consumed 24 grams of whey protein daily reported feeling fuller and consumed fewer calories during the day than those who drank other forms of protein. Whey helps to prevent the blood sugar dips that signal hunger and promote cravings.
BEATS BLOAT AND MELTS BELLY FAT BEST
Whey protein manages your middle better and beats bloat while melting off that stubborn belly fat. Whey's sophisticated structure causes your body to takes calories and burn them as heat rather than storing them as fat. But that's not all; whey has been known to reduce blood sugar, which can also trigger high blood pressure, playing a critical role in decreasing and preventing blood sugar issues. including helping to
Additionally, whey helps manage diabetic blood sugar issues and helps to increase blood amino acids that prevent muscle loss, helping keep your metabolism running at optimum speed, which prevents weight gain.
*NOTE: Diabetes is serious health problem linked to obesity, heart attack, and stroke. That's why choosing the right protein shake is critical when it comes to protecting your health. European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 67:749-753, 2013
HELPS PREVENT THE WEIGHT GAIN CAUSED BY STRESS
In order to lose weight, we must control our cortisol levels. Excess cortisol can prevent weight loss and make it harder to keep the pounds off. Cortisol breaks down muscle tissue which slows down our metabolic rate and increases our body fat which becomes a metabolic nightmare.
LynFit whey protein has a reputation for being the best food when it comes to preventing cortisol levels from rising.
Cortisol levels are also associated with bone loss, and while we can't prevent stress in our lives, we can do something to combat its effects — drink a LynFit Whey Protein Shake or eat a LynFit Lean Bar each day.
LYNFIT COMPLETE PROTEIN POWERS UP YOUR ENERGY BETTER THAN JUICING
Energy comes from getting the right combination of nutrients, and protein is one of the most important nutrients when it comes to sustainable energy.
While most of us tend to crave carbs when we need quick energy (that's why we tend to reach for simple carbs), we often forget that these simple carbs also send us crashing shortly after, sending us to look for more food shortly after, despite the fact that we just ate.
It's life-changing once you remember that protein is the better choice. It takes your body longer to digest protein, and in return, it provides long lasting balanced energy, keeping you feeling full, helping to prevent hunger and cravings for the wrong kind of foods.
Studies show that eating or drinking whey protein daily as a part of a diet that's low in fat and cholesterol, can help maintain a healthy heart. After all, your heart is a muscle too.
SO CLEAN IT FEEDS LEAN MUSCLE
Protein is the fuel of choice for your muscles and it helps preserve this precious tissue while promoting fat burning. Everyday activities such as carrying grocery bags and walking all take muscle.
Muscles need the specific amino acids found in "complete" protein to perform, as well as repair after a workout. Additionally, chronic everyday stress, illness, or injury increases your protein needs. Bottom line, our body can't heal properly unless we provide the right kind of nutrients that help it repair, hence preserving the muscle.
LynFit Whey Protein is made from the highest quality source of whey protein, all thanks to its purity and the fact that it doesn't contain added carbs, fillers, fats, or other inferior ingredients such as dairy or vegetarian sources.
How do you know if your protein does all of this? That's simple — if it doesn't say LynFit, it probably doesn't, especially if you purchased it in a store.
LynFit Tip: Your body’s ability to absorb protein and other nutrients is at its peak shortly after you work out or any type physical activity, such as mowing the lawn, shopping, or simply cleaning the house. If you drink a Protein Shake or eat a Lean Bar you'll help your body to be more toned and healthy so you can keep moving and look good doing it.
HELPS SLOW THE AGING PROCESS
Protein helps build muscle, and as we age, we tend to lose muscle tone and strength. But, that can be prevented if you eat sufficient amounts of the right kind of protein every day. Consuming the right amount of protein, spaced throughout your day, is the best way to prevent muscle loss from happening in the first place. And it might also slow down the loss of muscle mass when you are sick or under stress.
It's recommended that we consume 24–27 grams of lean protein at each meal and combine that with weight lifting /resistance training two times per week to maintain strength, boost health and metabolism for the rest of your life.
HELPS BOOST MOOD, EASE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION, WHILE BOOSTING IMMUNITY
Whey protein contains the exact amount of amino acids needed to increase levels of serotonin and regulate the hormones that can wreak havoc on our body, causing symptoms like depression, anxiety, and illness.
We are what we eat every day, and this is even more important when it comes to our mood and mental well-being.
Who needs whey? Everyone!
Kids need protein as they grow for strong muscles and bones (including teeth). Protein is more important for your kid's development than you might realize. But just because they need it doesn't mean you'll get them to eat it. That's where LynFit Protein Shakes and Lean Bars come in.
They can help kids, especially active ones, or kids that suffer from stress, to get enough of the right kind of protein. LynFit's line of Complete Protein products is delicious and nutrient-packed. LynFit Shakes and Lean Bars are simply the best choices. Martha Stewart was my taste tester, and she knows a thing or two about good taste.
The latest research shows that higher levels of protein are needed for adults age 65+ to prevent muscle loss that accelerates with aging. It's suggested that older adults double up their protein intake for better health. Adding these sophisticated forms of protein is the best way to boost health while keeping your cholesterol and blood pressure in check.
A LynFit Whey Protein Shake or Lean Bar a day is the best way to keep the doctor away. Apples can't even compare!

Make 2017 the Year of a New, Leaner You!
More than half of the country’s population has already made their New Year’s resolutions and are ready to put them into action to help them become healthier (by losing weight) and happier. Statistics say more than 90 percent of resolutions fail, despite the best of intentions.
If you want to be part of the 10 percent that succeed, you’ll need to know how to overcome the obstacles that stand in your way, preventing you from reaching your goals. These techniques will help you win the fight when it comes to reaching your goals.
There are some common mistakes almost all of us make when it comes to our diets, stopping fat loss and preventing us from losing weight. No matter what type of plan, your body needs these clean eating rules, backed by science, that apply to each of us.
(NOTE: If you’re over age 35, your metabolism is slowing down while we speak. So listen up, this applies in particular to you.)
Losing weight can be fast and easy if you think replacement vs. deprivation when it comes to addressing your not-so-healthy eating habits. And, we all know how long depriving ourselves lasts — not very long.
The Good News? These simple solutions can help you bust through your toughest weight loss challenges, no matter how old you are or how stubborn your metabolism is. You’ll not only lose more weight in less time; you’ll melt fat from those hard to reach places like the stomach, hips, and thighs. You'll do it without spending hours in the gym, or those dreadful juice cleanses that spike your blood sugar, making you even more ravenous than you were before you started.
If this is the year you promised yourself that you were going to do it, get ready, because these simple solutions are guaranteed to get you there. No more excuses! You're going to set a goal (be specific, such as 7 pounds in 7 days), and commit yourself 100 percent to work at it and achieve it.
Are you feeling determined and ready to lose a pound per day? If so, it's time to challenge yourself and take on the LynFit 7-Day Weight Loss Challenge.
We've got 7 days of healthy, lean living challenges to help get you back on track fast, losing weight and melting fat. This 7-Day Weight Loss Challenge will help you become a weight loss expert by teaching you how to lose weight and keep it off. These lean living tips will help you accomplish all your 2017 health goals; from lowering blood sugar or cholesterol levels, to decreasing your inflammation. No excuses!
Weight loss is 90 percent diet and only 20 percent sweat equity, so it’s best to focus on your eating habits. You don’t need a diet; you need a lifestyle. The best way to clean up yours is to replace some of the not-so-good habits that are stopping you from reaching your goals. You may not even be aware they are negatively affecting your weight loss because of the affect these seemingly harmless habits have on your blood sugar levels, causing your body to become resistant to weight loss. It's also why diabetes and pre-diabetes numbers are skyrocketing at a faster pace than the national debt.
It's not how much you work out or how often you wear that FitBit® or go to CrossFit® class, that will help you lose weight — it's your diet.
Here are the Top Three mistakes people make that prevent them from losing weight:
- They don’t pay attention to their meal timing.
Slimming Solution: Time your meals. Plan to eat all of your meals between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. This allows for a 12-hour fast every night, which is best for anti-aging and boosts weight loss. Meal timing is paramount, and it's best to aim for three meals and one snack daily.
- They drink way too much sugar.
Slimming Solution: Replace those sugar-spiking juices and gourmet coffees with a cleaner, metabolic boosting, and much more delicious Double Chocolate Mocha Latte. This one simple change can help you lose 7 pounds in 7 days because of its nourishing properties that help lower blood sugar levels, block cortisol (the stress hormone that wreaks havoc on our waistlines), and boost metabolism by 25 percent.
- They overcomplicate their workouts and push themselves too hard, which makes them even hungrier.
Slimming Solution: Treat a weight loss workout like brushing your teeth. Do it daily and make it such a habit that you can do it without thinking about it.
These moves keep your body in working order by strengthening it as we get older.
Warning: These moves do not require any equipment or expensive gyms, so you save time and money and get fitter fast. You’ll spend the time you normally would driving to the gym getting it done instead. This is the "no excuse" workout that anyone can do anywhere anytime. It's better if you incorporate these moves into your day.
+ Chair Squats
+ Door jam, counter top or desk push ups *Can be done on one leg for balance
+ Chair Dips
+ Chair Crunch a la Frog kick style or Crunch with your legs on chair
+ One Legged Side raises
Aim for 10 of each and increase reps as it gets easier. You can also do a super slow technique and focus on the squeeze.
Don’t forget; lean bodies are not made in the gym, they are made in the kitchen. There is no reason to kill yourself or risk getting injured to get in shape. This is the year of working smarter not harder!This is the year you're going to do it. Are you feeling determined? All you have to do is follow the plan each day.

Eat Chocolate For Breakfast And Lose Weight
Can eating chocolate help you lose weight? Eating chocolate before and after your meals is the newest weight loss tactic. Is it efficient since you're simply adding extra calories which means you’ll gain weight? Is it too good to be true?
"New science proves you should eat chocolate every day is real and proven." If this sets off your, it's too-good-to-be-true alarm, it should! Not all chocolate is created equal. It’s the kind of chocolate you eat that matters most, as well as when you eat it and how much.
Let’s be honest, women need chocolate. Chocolate lovers, you can rejoice because there’s another new study that shows eating more of the dark stuff might actually help you stay slim.* But be careful — chocolate contains more calories than many foods. However, the U.S. study showed that those who consume the right kind of chocolate have less body fat than those who didn't.
Researchers suspect the calories in chocolate are not like “normal” calories. If the chocolate calories are of a particular kind, they might just make your metabolism work harder, which means they offset the extra calories (aka "thermogenic"). Your body burns calories digesting it, leaving you with a calorie burning advantage. The study shows the that the metabolic effects of certain specific ingredients make this particular chocolate a good “slimming” food because it is calorie-neutral.
The study leader, Dr Beatrice Golomb, from the University of California at San Diego, said, “Our findings appear to add to a body of information suggesting that the composition of calories, not just the number of them, matters for determining their ultimate impact on weight. Does it get any better than this? When it comes to eating chocolate this is good news for those who have a regular chocolate habit, and those who wish to start one.”
I love these scientists. They actually investigated the chocolate eating habits of 972 men and women with an average age of 57 for a study of cholesterol lowering drugs and found out that chocolate can be good for weight loss. These surprising findings showed those who ate chocolate on more days of the week than average were statistically likely to have lower Body Mass Indexes because the chocolate speeds up the metabolism. The right kind of chocolate can also:
- Reduce blood pressure
- Improve mood (this is why we crave it)
- Lower the risk of heart disease and stroke
However, the researchers warn the study’s findings do not apply to all products containing chocolate, and some people might actually gain weight unless they do these specific things. Here is the 411 on chocolate and what you need to know if you’re a chocolate addict like me, need it every day, and are trying to lose weight.
- Eat your chocolate first thing in the morning to boost metabolism. You’ll burn off the extra calories throughout the day.
- Make sure it is pure, high-quality cacao. High-quality cacao contains chemicals called theobromine. Theobromine is a stimulant and that's why it speeds up the metabolism. That's also why you crave chocolate when you are depressed or lack energy.
- Epicatechin is also a chemical that’s derived from the chocolate ingredient cocoa. It has been known to boost numbers of mitochondria, the cells’ energy-generating powerhouses. So you feel better, and it's good for your health. These awesome little mitochondria burn up calories which is good news for weight loss.
Wait, it gets even better. If you've been reading my blogs, you know by now that the trick to losing weight is keeping insulin levels down, or lowering them if they are high. Guess what? Pure defatted cacao can decrease insulin resistance by almost 50 percent, thanks to the flavonoids it contains.
Thanks to these miraculous ingredients, dark chocolate can also slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream. That helps prevent the much-dreaded insulin spike, which is famous for shuttling sugar straight into your fat cells. These dreaded insulin spikes turn off your body's fat-burning mechanisms which stop fat loss and make you hungry again several hours later. Over time, they can also lead to insulin resistance and diabetes. The best news ever? Dark chocolate kills craving for sweets.
Here is a metabolic boosting chocolate breakfast that helps you lose weight while boosting mood and improving health. You’ll never miss breakfast again.
It nourishes the body because the protein powder is full of amino acids that boosts metabolism, turns off the weight gain switch and also helps kill cravings. That’s why you don’t want to wait until later to eat these.
CHOCOLATE BLISS, HIGH-PROTEIN TRUFFLES (Adapted from my recipe in The Metabolism Solution)
(2 scoops) LynFit Chocolate Complete Protein Powder
(1 cup) Dark chocolate spread or Nutella
(1/8 cup) Honey
(3/4 cup) Raw oats (if you're not trying to lose weight)
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Form into 1 inch balls and place in the freezer until frozen (usually 1 hour or less) and eat them. For extra special occasions decorate with shredded coconut, crushed almonds or walnuts. Sprinkles make them attractive for kids.
BE SURE TO LOOK FOR THE FOLLOWING SUPER STAR INGREDIENTS WHEN YOU SHOP FOR CHOCOLATE
- Go dark or don't it. Look for at least 70 percent pure cacao. It has less sugar, contains some monounsaturated fatty acids, and has a bittersweet taste which reduces the amount you eat. It kills cravings for sweet and fatty foods.
- Stick to a small serving. Each helping should be no bigger than the end of your thumb.
- Chocolate Protein Powders and Protein Bars can be a great way to get your chocolate fix, but make sure what you choose is made from dark chocolate that’s been defatted, and contains no sugar. For the best results, use LynFit Complete Protein and LynFit Lean Bars.
- Check the label and look for 155 calories or less, 2 grams max of fat, and less than 3 grams of sugar.
You’ll know you're buying good chocolate by the price. Chocolate is in high demand and is at a premium of $8 an ounce for the good stuff.
If you want all of these benefits but don't like chocolate (what, are you crazy?) you can find them in the LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones. Once you try this supplement and see how fast you melt off body fat and excess pounds you’ll see why it’s been called The Miracle in a Bottle.
