Diabetes And Belly Fat

National Diabetes Awareness MonthNovember is National Diabetes Awareness Month, and I bet you're wondering what diabetes has to do with belly fat. Believe it or not, if you carry excess weight around your middle (can you pinch an inch?) your body is warning you that you are over-eating carbs and sugars (this includes fruits and juices). The belly fat that you are carrying around is a sign that your "Carb Tank" is full and cannot process anymore food.

The problem is we love our food. What to do? We all know that diabetes can be a lethal disease, so my message is "prevention is the cure". Not only when it comes to preventing diabetes but also to losing belly fat.

Below are 3 proven methods that melt belly fat fast. If you're already active these steps will help you lose it even faster and easier. The more of these steps you combine the faster you'll lose weight too. Are you ready to melt fat and lose 1 pound per day? Then let's get started.....

3 Tricks That Melt Belly Fat and Could Possibly Save Your Life

Metabolic Workouts Melt Belly Fat Fast: The more you move, the better

Exercise trains muscles to respond better to insulin, which simply means your body will burn off the excess carbs you eat by using them for fuel. Metabolic workouts are the fastest, most effective way to lower insulin (blood sugar) levels, which persuades your body to burn/melt that belly fat. When combined with metabolic workouts with 30 minutes of walking every day, it turbo charges your fat melting.

WARNING: Not all workouts are created equal. If your workout doesn't say "metabolic", it isn't. Other forms of workouts beat the couch but won't have the magic effect the combination of 3 metabolic workouts weekly and 30 minutes of walking will. I suggest sticking to metabolic workouts and walking for the best results. For more information about metabolic workouts you can refer to my book, The Metabolism Solution, and my LynFit Metabolic Workout DVDs.

Eat Thermogenically

Melting belly fat is 90% diet and 10% sweat, so it's critical that you focus heavily on your diet if you're serious about melting belly fat and lowering your risk of diabetes. Again, prevention is the cure and what you eat counts. The healthiest foods don't come with nutrition labels so even the so-called healthy foods you spend a fortune on aren't as good for your waistline as you think. The easiest way to lower blood sugar and melt belly fat is to lower your carb intake. This includes fruit. Focus on filling ½ your plate with salad or leafy green veggies and ¼ of the plate with fibrous veggies such as broccoli and cauliflower (a full list may be found in The Metabolism Solution). The remaining quarter is for lean proteins such as fish. The balance of protein and vegetables is crucial, as the protein acts as a buffer, slowing down the release of insulin, which is key for balancing blood sugar levels. It is even important when it comes to burning off that excess fat. 

For more information about Thermogenic eating to melt belly fat, please refer to The Metabolism Solution.

Manage Your Mood: Improve your sleep and you'll manage stress better

Stress has been known to cause excess belly fat, not reduce it. Stress hormones raise blood sugar so it's important to try to reduce stress in your life. Have you ever noticed when you're in a good mood that you can manage stress much better? While stress is a fact of life and we can't control when it occurs, we can change how we react to it by taking better care of ourselves, and it all starts with a good night's sleep. But when we're stressed it affects our sleep and it then becomes a vicious cycle. It can be stopped naturally however. Rather than take over-the-counter sleep aids that make you feel groggy and may also raise blood sugar levels, it's a very good idea when trying to melt belly fat to take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep 1-2 hours before bed to naturally prepare your body for sleep. The melatonin in Lean Sleep won't raise blood sugar levels and will help kill hunger cravings before they begin. Lean Sleep not only helps you sleep, it also turns your body into a thermogenic fat-blasting machine while you sleep. Melatonin also has the reputation of being a regulator of brown adipose tissue, which burns calories instead of storing them, thereby ramping up your metabolism.

Try these 3 simple steps and when all else fails and you fall off the wagon - and you will because we live in the real world - don't forget to take the LynFit Carb Edge before you cheat. It has the added feature of blocking carbs, so if you take it before you cheat you'll block 65% of them from being stored. It's like eating a whole doughnut and only absorbing ¼ of it. Now I'm not suggesting you do that - eat the doughnut - but we all have our moments. Better to be protected than not. It's far easier to prevent the carbs from being stored in the first place than it is to burn them off later, especially with the holiday's right around the corner. Holidays mean stress and delicious food - protect yourself!

The Gratitude Challenge For Lasting Transformational Change

 

I just completed my Advanced Level of Coaching with Jack Canfied (co-author, "Chicken Soup for the Soul") at his home in Santa Barbara, CA. During this retreat I noticed a recurring habit that totally changed people's lives - physically, mentally and spiritually. This habit didn't just change lives gradually; rather, it transformed lives overnight. What was that habit that when willingly practiced radically transformed people's lives? Gratitude.

Gratitude - that quality of willingly being thankful and appreciative for a benefit that you have already received. When it comes to weight loss and fitness we spend so much time hating our bodies. So much so that we often forget just how much we have to be grateful for. Could it be that one of the greatest hindrances to our weight loss is our attitude - our failure to be grateful? I think so.

"Less than good" attitudes are like flat tires - you won't go very far until you change it. You've all heard the saying, "what you focus on multiplies" - that is absolutely correct. Just think about it. How many times have you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and that negativity carried throughout the entire day? Once you're mired in the mud it's hard to get out.

I challenge you to change the way you look at things, starting today. Try to see some positive in everything, even bad situations. Do this on a consistent basis and eventually the way you see those things and your beliefs in them will change. What we believe shapes our thinking, which in turn shapes our lives. This is especially true when it comes to our bodies. We often don't see things for what they are but what we perceive them as being. The way we see things is shaped by the way we see ourselves. If you believe you are lovable, you will act in a loving and caring manner toward your body by treating it with respect and feeding it right, exercising it safely and nourishing it; body and mind. 

When you "love" on yourself you will attract more love your way as well. Friend, spouses, even the dog will show the respect to you that you show. It all starts with you. On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you believe you're not worthy and unlovable you'll act accordingly. Yes, including eating clean, pure foods and making sure you get enough daily exercise. You focus on your fear and that fear multiplies into all aspects of your life.

I never believed I would lose weight so I never really committed to doing what I was supposed to. I used to complain, "it didn't work for me" or I would lie and tell myself I was doing what I was supposed to and it just wasn't working. The truth is nothing changed until I changed from the inside out. It all started with a single thought, a single attitude adjustment from negativity to gratefulness. Now at age 46 I'm in the best shape of my life. I've lost, and kept off, 40 pounds. And I'm stronger, more flexible than ever. My depression is gone and I'm the happiest I've ever been, despite the fact that life's not always perfect. I now experience real joy every day regardless what size my thighs are. The lies we believe about ourselves deceive us. See yourself the way God sees you. In His eyes you are perfect just as you are. This truth will set you free.

Many of the "love yourself habits" in my Gratitude Challenge will ask you to go outside your comfort zone. Transformations that radically change your life start outside of your comfort zone. I must warn you upfront: These health habits bring on radical change. Do not try these unless you want to get unstuck. 

I dare you to change your life and start loving yourself today. Remember to complete each one of these on its assigned day, and don't skip ahead. It's important to be a rule-follower and perform each one at its designated time. Keep in mind, outside your comfort zone is where it all begins. By practicing these health habits over the next 21 days you'll be practicing gratitude while establishing new healthy habits that will radically transform your life physically, mentally, and spiritually. Are you ready? I dare you - all it takes is 21 days to create new lasting habits.

4 Simple Disciplines To Melt Belly Fat

The word discipline means to delay gratification. Discipline is your friend and shouldn't be avoided. It's a tool to help us get what we want, but in a way that is beneficial rather than harmful. In order to be successful in losing weight - getting us what we want - every area of our life needs discipline and self-control.

All of that sounds fine and easy. But when the rubber meets the road, or rather when the foot hits the scale, there are some decisions that must be made for us to successfully introduce discipline into our lives. Discipline means advance planning in a number areas: Food, sleep, how you spend your time; these are just a few areas that we have to practice advance planning in. You need a rock solid plan to stick to and you need to know when substitutions are necessary and what they are so you won't get caught off guard. I believe this plan of discipline will lead you to lasting weight loss and vibrant health.

Discipline also means planning your pain (workouts) and your pleasure (your cheat days). It's vital that you are honest with yourself when planning. Not being able to be honest with yourself is where most of the problems lie. In 25 years I've never had anyone journal what their "bad eating days" were truly like. They always tend to fudge a little or conveniently forget exactly what their eating day was like. Yet they can't figure out why they can't lose weight. We should be as honest about our cheat days as we are proud of our perfect eating days.

Willpower is a muscle. Just like any other muscle, it must be worked to be made strong. If we don't exercise it it cannot withstand the constant pressure of everyday unplanned living that we put on it; to the point that it eventually tears, breaks or falls apart. The sad part is that when our willpower tears, breaks or falls apart, so too do our dreams in many cases. Remember what we said in the very first paragraph - "discipline is a tool to help us get what we want in a beneficial way that is never harmful"? No discipline + no willpower = faded dreams and lost hope.

But here's the best news - perfection doesn't exist! That's right, I said it - perfection doesn't exist. Because the thing about discipline is that it doesn't recognize failure. That's why you mentally and physically plan ahead so that when imperfection occurs you're ready for it and your discipline kicks in knowing that, hey okay, this is that blip that I knew beforehand was going to happen. Now, on to the next positive milestone!

As much discipline as we do need, it alone is not enough. Just as a car needs an engine for it to even start, it has to have some vital fluids and maintenance to keep it running smoothly. Here are 4 things, that in addition to having the discipline engine engaged, can accelerate your weight loss:

Go to bed at the same time everyday

With school starting back this is the perfect time to visit this area of your life. And, it is one area that can usually be planned pretty regularly. Any disruption in the routine, even small ones, can result in a restless night. Sleep is when our bodies naturally recover from the day's activities and stresses.

And what do we do when we can't sleep - we reach for that over-the-counter sleep aid. But did you know that those over-the-counter sleep aids actually slow weight loss and leave you feeling groggy when you wake up? If you are having a hard time falling asleep or find yourself waking up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep, take LynFit Lean Sleep 45-60 minutes before you go to bed. It's a natural "good for you" sleep aid that actually aids in weight loss and melting away belly fat. Read "The Metabolism Solution" to learn more about this natural alternative and its positive effects on weight loss.

Keep your colon clean

Eating clean but your stomach isn't flat? You are most likely constipated. A disciplined routine of regular eating and exercise works wonders here. But sometimes we all need a little extra help when it comes to staying regular.

First, it's always good to make sure you're eating adequate amounts of vegetables every day (10 servings). But sometimes that's impossible to do. Again, that's where that advanced planning comes in - we've got a substitute plan - LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse. Take 2-3 Raspberry Ketone Cleanse every day with your dinner and you're guaranteed to stay regular, in a natural and safe way. Doing just this one thing helped me lose 3-5 pounds and made my stomach flatter.

Another little tip: Drinking hot water with lemon every day also guarantees a smooth morning, if you know what I mean. Sometimes, even though we're awake, not everything seems to be awake  :)

Control the cravings

Can't stop eating? The more you think about it the more you eat? I totally understand this one. To this day I struggle with it. That's why I devoted so much of my book to managing head hunger. And trust me; it is all in our heads. If you're not careful, what's in your head will ultimately find its way into your stomach.

For that extra "umph" to defeat the head games take LynFit Omega-3 at 3pm to stop those cravings before they begin. We should all be taking Omega-3 anyway for optimal health, even if you eat salmon. And don't forget your dogs too. I have 4 of them and they get Omega-3. It helps in so many areas:

Memory
Hair, skin and nails
Inflammation (aches and pains)
Immune boosting
Blood sugar control (which helps kill cravings)

As an added bonus, take Omega-3 before you sleep and you'll wake up pain-free and feeling like you've slept like a baby.

Exercise the right way for a flatter stomach by week's end

Yes, LynFit metabolic boosting exercise is the secret to seeing results fast. Remember, we talked about planned pain - workouts. One of the biggest mistakes people make is not doing the right kind of exercise to achieve their weight loss and fitness goals. I find that they either over exercise, which causes more stress on their body which contributes to weight gain, or they under exercise, which stops any results dead in their tracks.

Want to see results start to happen? Do LynFit metabolic boosting workouts 3 times weekly, along with a daily "good for your body" core walk (the core walk is explained in detail in "The Metabolism Solution"). You'll not only lose 1 pound a day, you'll also feel and see visible results in 1 week. That's the LynFit Guarantee - if you follow my plan 100% you'll get results faster than surgery! Not to mention - it costs a lot less and you don't need to take all that time off from work.

So, are you ready to lose that weight? I can help you! It's time to get disciplined for weight loss!

Back To Basics To Boost Your Metabolism

Every now and then you just gotta "shake things up" if you're serious about losing weight. You can't be afraid to get a little hungry either. That's how we force our bodies to burn off that stubborn belly fat.

LynFit's metabolic workouts use the science of Metabolic Circuits to crank up your calorie-burn by boosting your metabolism.

Start with the Recovery Stretch and walking every day.

Clients are telling me how much they love these workouts because they are challenging and fun and they have seen first-hand how effective they are for making their bodies healthier and fitter.

    3. End your diet dilemma by getting your cravings and appetite under control. That's where supplements come in and don't forget LynFit Lean Bars kill cravings and help you lose weight fast. Here's a little Supplement Cheat Sheet to troubleshoot your worst diet issues.

For advanced weight loss start switching to all-natural products for fast relief. For sleeplessness, try LynFit Lean Sleep. Constipation and bloating? Try LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse and add a little Suntheanine Fiber to your LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Need to satisfy that urge to chew? Have a LynFit Lean Bar. Anxiety got you in a tizzy? Try Oxytocin or Suntheanine for fast relief that won't negatively affect your weight loss.

And above all else - Remember I'm here if you need me.

Cleansing The Right Way!

In a panic after the holidays and just want to "clean up and start over" by doing a juice cleanse? I understand your sense of urgency but let's make sure that you get started the right way. While cleansing your system and "starting over" is a good thing, if you don't juice cleanse properly you may actually cause damage to an already slow metabolism, especially if you're over 40.

The good news is that not only is juicing for detoxing and weight loss one of the latest health trends, but when done properly, can help you lose a pound a day. It's important to remember that I'm talking about metabolic cleansing however. There's a big difference between a normal juice cleanse and my metabolic boosting cleanse!

The first thing most people do is to start dumping all kinds of fruit and veggies into a blender without any concern as to what those combinations might actually be doing to their bodies. In fact, if you're not careful, you end up spiking your blood sugar levels off the chart and that's the last thing you want to do when you're trying to lose fat.

So, can I really lose a pound a day with a metabolic cleanse? Absolutely! But only if your cleanse is done properly. Other cleanses don't contain enough nutrients to keep your metabolism running smoothly and you tend to lose muscle in the process because they don't provide enough protein and nutrients, slowing down your metabolism and causing your body to go into survival mode.

My metabolic boosting cleanse does the complete opposite. It provides the nutrients your body needs to keep your metabolism going and in turn, allows you to lose weight!

The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Difference:

  • Before you just start tossing assorted greens into your blender, you want to make sure you mix in some metabolic boosting whey, found in my Complete Protein Shakes. Whey is low calorie (155 calories or less). It is also low in carbs, sugar and fat. You'll absolutely love the taste that makes it easy to drink at least one every day. The Complete Protein Shakes come in 3 delicious flavors: French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry Banana Twist. There's no better tasting diet drink. And it boosts your metabolism by 25%!
  • Kick-start your day with my Daily Power Shot. The first thing I do every morning is take a LynFit Daily Power Shot. It contains every single nutrient that your body needs. If your body is missing even a single nutrient your metabolism starts to slow down. The Daily Power Shot's vitamins, minerals and antioxidants help your body reach optimum health and elevates energy levels, allowing you to maximize your weight loss.
  • Feeling hungry between meals? It's not the feeling hungry that's bad, it's what we do to try to satisfy that craving that hurts us. Too many of us instinctively reach for a sugary or carb filled snack when we start to feel hungry between meals. Rather than those "not so good" choices, I recommend sipping green tea while allowing your body the necessary time to process and burn off fat. If you really can't seem to get satisfied you can always enjoy another metabolic boosting Complete Protein Shake, or even a green apple.

Here's a Lisa tip: Take Omega-3 at 3! I make it a point to take my Pure Omega-3 at 3pm every day to blunt my cravings and keep my energy levels sustained. It makes it a lot easier to walk away from those temptations!

  • Fuel your metabolism with seafood for dinner. What you eat for dinner makes a big difference in your weight loss success. Seafood is high in iodine and will help fuel your metabolism. Add broccoli or leafy greens to your meal and you'll give your metabolism the kick-start it needs to keep burning fat throughout the night.

Here's a Lisa tip: While cleansing, before bed, I recommend taking a LynFit Fat Burning Raspberry Ketone Cleanse. It detoxifies your system, getting rid of fat loving toxins that slow your metabolism down.

  • Weight loss miracles really do happen when you sleep! Sleep is when your body regenerates and revitalizes itself. LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin will help your body and brain reboot so your body can burn fat even while you sleep. Drug-free, it is specifically designed for weight loss while allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new, metabolic boosting day!
You can get all the products listed above in one convenient Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Kit. No excuses, no delays, no putting off what you can start today!

Stop Your Cravings Dead In Their Tracks


I don't know about you but I struggle with cravings, especially this time of year. We all start off with the best of intentions, promises and resolutions. But before you know it, those promises have already been broken, the good intentions have faded into the back of our minds, and our once so-promising resolutions have turned into disappointment. And, to let you in on a little Lisa Lynn secret..... I'm no different than you!

I always start my day with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake with a handful of salad greens added to it for substance and it keeps me feeling fuller longer. But sometimes at the end of the day my cravings can get the best of me, unless I remembered to.....
  • Take LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm to blunt cravings and to help keep my energy levels sustained (my Pure Omega-3 doesn't contain stimulants so it won't keep me up at night). If I don't hit that late afternoon energy slump I tend to eat better and can walk away from temptation easier.
  • BLOCK cravings and carbs with LynFit Carb Edge with Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract. This is a saving grace when it comes to curbing cravings and lowering blood sugar levels, which is the secret to losing weight and convincing your body to burn fat. Take (1) LynFit Carb Edge mid-morning and another after lunch and you'll breeze through the afternoon without the munchies and you'll lose weight easier.
If you plan on cheating, take LynFit Carb Edge right before your cheat meal to decrease the caloric impact of carbs. The B-Vitamins found in LynFit Carb Edge will help make you fight off seasonal affective disorder too!
  • Gotta munch? EAT more veggies! Sometimes we just need to crunch. Try roasting green beans in the oven for 10-15 minutes and sprinkle them with sea salt. You'll enjoy them just as much as the "not so good" food. It's one of my family's favorites and as long as I have them out on the counter when I'm cooking dinner they will grab and eat. The more veggies you eat, the more you'll lose.
Not eating enough veggies? Add them to your LynFit Complete Protein Shake. You need to eat 10 veggie servings daily. Vegetables are the only food we don't eat enough of!

Still need a little extra encouragement? Follow my Slimmer by Dinner Meal Plan and click on the video above to watch my interview with FOX-TV in Tampa, Fl. I go over the specifics that you will need to keep those resolutions you've made. And if you've already slipped a little, I'll give you the tools you'll need to get back on track fast!

Drop 7 Pounds In 7 Days With A Metabolic Boosting Cleanse

I don't know about you, but I crave a cleanse after I have eaten "off plan". I don't feel good when I'm not eating right or getting enough sleep. I feel tired all the time, my cravings run my life, and I feel fat and fluffy.

I know the solution is to detox my body from all of the damage that I caused it. But I should warn you, not all cleanses are good for weight loss. In fact, most of the cleanses you see advertised actually slow down your metabolism. Did you know that juicing slows your metabolism? Juicing is great for alkalizing your body because you consume your vegetables, but it also causes hikes in blood sugar that affect your weight loss and prevent you from burning fat.

The reason cleanses are so good for us is that they make us feel re-energized. Not to mention, they reboot our metabolism when done right. We also begin eating better so we feel better right away. But that's not all that cleanses are good for. Cleansing is the best way to improve your health and jump start our weight loss plan because they are alkalizing our bodies. If our bodies are too acidic we get sick often, feel tired all the time, and struggle with weight loss. Not to mention we can't lose that stubborn fat.

All of LynFit's plans are alkalizing so they not only boost your metabolism and cause you to lose weight, but they also create vibrant health. You'll not only look better, you'll feel the best you have felt in years and your aches and pains will even subside, so you'll want to exercise!

What makes our bodies too acidic? Eating too many sweets and processed foods, meats (including chicken) and not getting enough sleep or rest.

Cleansing facts that you need to know:

  • Our brains bathe and reboot when we sleep and if we don't sleep well enough or get enough zzz's our bodies can't reboot.
  • Juicing/Drinking juices (especially if they are pre-made vs. fresh) can slow down your metabolism. When we juice on mega doses of vegetables that are raw they can affect and slow your thyroid. Eat steamed vegetables instead that won't slow your thyroid.
  • Blending large amounts of vegetables, especially if you fruit can cause blood sugar levels to skyrocket and that's always counter-productive for losing weight and burning fat.
  • Not getting enough clean, lean protein while cleansing can cause your body to break down muscle tissue and that causes your metabolism to slow down. Clean, lean proteins such as LynFit Complete Protein Shake and white fish are the best and only sources you should rely on while cleansing.
  • Not eating to boost your metabolism slows down your metabolism. That doesn't mean you need to eat a lot, but you have to eat right.
  • Not cleansing long enough. A good cleanse should be followed for at least 21 days to break bad habits and create new good ones.
We eat from Thanksgiving to New Year's and go all out like there is no tomorrow and we think we can cleanse for 1 week to fix the damage - NOT! I suggest cleansing for 30 days following a Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and allowing yourself to go off 1-2 meals per week (after 7-10 days). Keep your cheat meal light, clean and simple so you don't wreck all of your hard work. Your digestive system needs to be treated with TLC for the best health results. I usually have a fish meal made with lemon and white wine and a salad with veggies, and then frozen yogurt for dessert as my cheat meal. That's enough to make me crave going back on my cleanse.


How do you cleanse your body to boost your metabolism? Follow a Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and add the following tips to maximize your results:

  • Take the LynFit Daily Power Shot first thing in the morning to bathe your body with vital nutrients that will provide the energy you need.
  • Perform the Metabolic Booster or Fat Blaster workout at 50% intensity and do the Recovery Stretch every other day. STOP all other activities except walking or indoor biking.
  • Drink you LynFit Complete Protein Shake or LynFit Lean Bar after your morning workout. Not working out in the morning? Start now! Even 15 minutes will make a difference.
  • Drink at least 4 cups of green tea daily or warm water with lemon, as well as lots of fresh water; instead of coffee.
  • Take LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm to keep cravings in check and bathe your body with good fats for optimal health.
  • Take the LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse every day at 5pm with your dinner. If constipated, use more to get your bowels working.
  • Take LynFit Lean Sleep 30 minutes before bed to enhance sleep. Sleep and rest are critical while cleansing. It's when our brains bathe themselves and our bodies restore themselves.
  • Don't eat in between meals. Let yourself get hungry and fill up with tea, hot water with lemon or fresh water. You're supposed to be drinking 8 glasses a day. Tea counts toward your water quota as long as it's black.
  • Eat steamed vegetables for dinner and every other night have white fish.

Cleansing is THE BEST way to jump-start your fat loss when you do it right. This is a great time to pick up some new habits that will change your life for the better. After all, cleansing is more than just detoxing the body. We should also be thinking about ways we can improve our lives, and our health! Recruit your mother, husband and kids and do it together as family. Even the pets can benefit!

Need some LynSpiration? Meditate daily, early in the morning or immediately after you exercise by lying flat on your back and focusing on your breathing, slowly exhaling out your stress (guys, this is especially important for you) and focus on anything that makes you smile.

Here's a bonus recipe for you to use during your cleanse; the Alkalinity Shake. Simply add the following ingredients to your blender while making your shake. Even if you hate vegetables you'll love this. You won't even know they're in there.

Directions: Wash and prep ingredients. Add to blender and blend away!
Serves 2 (that way you already have your lunch shake prepared)

(1) cup water or black coffee (coffee is loaded with antioxidants)
(4) scoops of your favorite flavor LynFit Complete Protein Shake (results are not guaranteed when using other shakes as they are loaded with inferior protein and sugar)
(1) large cucumber
(1) fistful of kale
(2-3) stalks of celery
(1) big broccoli stem
(1/2) peeled lemon

Scared you won't like the veggies in your shake? Start slow and try one new veggie each day. Most people love kale, cucumber and spinach because they are so mild tasting.

Get ready for the detox of your life. I'll warn you upfront - it's addicting!
