D-Boost Your Diet And Lose 6 Times More Weight
If you're not losing the weight you'd like to, low vitamin-D levels may be the reason. A recent study in the Archives of Internal Medicine reports that 77% of Americans are vitamin-D deficient. But another study grabbed my attention in an even bigger way.....
A recent study in the British Journal of Nutrition is getting lots of attention, and for good reason. Obese women who were put on a 15-week diet, fortified with vitamin-D, lost 6 times more weight than women who followed just the diet alone. The end result? Not just better weight loss but more fat loss as well.
When you fuel your body with the vitamin-D that it needs, it releases fat storage and causes your body to go into a fat burning state. This one healthy step could also speed up you weight loss by 70%.
You might think that your body receives enough vitamin-D from the sun alone. Did you know that "sun worshipers" actually tend to be low in vitamin-D? Anytime we overdo anything, including the sun, we actually create a need for more; essentially creating a demand for the very nutrient we get too much of - in this case, vitamin-D.
I found this to be especially true for me personally. I worshiped the sun and even used sun beds to "fix" my craving for it. Who knew that the "fix" would later become a problem, presenting itself in the form of melanoma? Melanoma - the very reason I created my own LynFit brand vitamin-D.
The first call I made when I found out I had cancer was to an incredible group of physicians that I had met. I needed to lean on them not only for support, but more importantly, for their knowledge on how to fight melanoma. To a person they all agreed on one thing; vitamin-D to boost my immune system.
Running to my nearest health food store to buy some reputable vitamin-D I realized why people get so frustrated when it comes to buying any type of supplement. Not one vitamin-D supplement contained the recommended amount (4mg per thousand milligrams) needed to boost my immunity. Not to mention, they were not made from reliable sources. The solution - I set out to make my own following the LynFit integrity principles:
- Use the best possible ingredients
- Use the right amounts to get results
- Buy from the most reliable sources
The end result: LynFit Vitamin-D3 Boost, specially formulated for weight loss with the added immune boosting ingredient Wellmune WGP. Wellmune is a natural ingredient that supports overall health and wellness by boosting the body's immunity. LynFit Vitamin-D3 Boost may also aid in:
- Proper digestion and food absorption
- Improved muscle strength
- Overall sense of well-being and good health
Why supplement with Vitamin-D3 Boost? Most of us naturally need to after age 35, especially if you're overweight and have excess body fat. Vitamin-D is stored in fat tissue making it less available to be used by our body. We need to have it circulating in our blood and ready to be used. Most of us don't get enough sunlight for proper vitamin-D levels, especially when practicing sun safety using sunscreens as we should. Sunscreens reduce the skin's ability to make vitamin-D by 90-99%. Additionally, medications such as blood pressure medicine and hormone replacements may interfere with natural vitamin-D replenishment.
You can never have enough support when it comes to protecting your health. When you add in the extra benefit of aiding in weight and fat loss vitamin-D is a win-win for everyone.
Melt Belly Fat Without Ever Going To The Gym
You've heard me say, "It's all about the moves". Well, it is. Have you ever asked yourself why you're spending so much time in the gym and you're still not seeing the results you want to? It's 90% diet and only 10% sweat when it comes to slimming your belly and losing weight.
That being said; we do need to work out. But if what you're doing isn't working it's time for a change. I say skip the gym and do metabolic boosting workouts at home instead. One of the best ways to harness the power of your metabolism is to make sure your workouts are "metabolic" and that your abdominal moves are going to flatten your tummy versus making it worse.
Did you know that people who work out at home get better results faster? In my 25+ years as a trainer I can vouch for this. The best part - they are able to maintain their fitness and weight loss results because it takes half the time to work out at home. You can get a complete metabolic workout done in the time that it would take to drive to and from a gym. All you need to work out at home is a pair of dumbbells and plan.
If you're not sure of form it is a good idea to follow a DVD like the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Workout DVDs or workouts that can easily be downloaded to a portable device. Metabolic workouts are designed to get you in shape fast in less time than a typical gym workout. They will boost your metabolism rather than bulk you up.
Even beginners can do this. Metabolic boosting workouts won't injure you the way some of the high intensity fitness programs can. The women I know who have done metabolic boosting workouts say they not only lost 1 pound per day but they also saw physical results in the same week while not getting hurt, making it easier to stick to the program.
For a flatter stomach you need to strengthen your core and the best way to do this without making your stomach stick out more is by doing Side Core Raises versus using machines. Most sit-ups do absolutely nothing when it comes to strengthening your core/tummy muscles. Most gym machines and classic abdominal moves actually make your stomach stick out even worse; or as we say in my business, "distend", or stick out. Who wants that? When it comes to trimming your tummy and melting belly fat you need your metabolism more than ever. Remember: It's always better to choose floor work over gym machines.
You want to train movements not just muscles if you're serious about getting your tummy trim and making your stomach flat. Here are two tummy trimming moves that also boost your metabolism to do at home that will melt belly fat and keep you out of the gym:
The Tummy Trimming Side Core Raise
Lying on your side on your elbows, lift your body off the floor using your core. Too hard? Use an arm or leg to help out. Be sure to keep your body in a straight line. You can do this against a wall at first to be sure you stay in proper alignment.
Perform 2-3 sets of 12-15 repetitions - No weight needed.
Working the core so your abs get flatter is more than doing abdominal work. It also means you need to work the stabilizing muscles which help keep us upright and help with better posture. In order to work these muscles we need to work all of the muscles of the core including the buttocks and lower back.
Butt-Lifter | Posture-Correcting Rear Fly
Lying face down with your arms out to the side (like a bird) and squeezing your buttocks together tightly, raise your upper body off of the floor using your lower back muscles as if your were reverse flying.
Perform 2-3 sets of 12-15 repetitions. To make it more difficult use 2-3 pound hand weights.

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:
Hair, skin and nails
Inflammation (aches and pains)
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!

10 Simple Ways To Use Complete Protein To Increase Metabolism And Bust Fat
How do you get more protein and more of the right protein? Protein shakes. No, not those shakes you can buy in any convenience store as meal replacements, but sugar-free, high-grade, filler-free, lean protein.
Models, celebrities, professional athletes - they all have one thing in common - they drink protein shakes as meal replacements. They all know how hard it is to lose weight and rid their bodies of excess fat, and they know the value of a nutritious tool that makes their lives easier and is more cost-effective than focusing on specialty diet food.
So what is this sugar-free, high-grade, filler-free, lean protein? Whey. Whey is a complete protein, containing all 29 amino acids and all 9 essential amino acids the body needs. It helps in muscle recovery and is widely considered to be the highest quality natural protein.
But not all whey is created equal. The whey used in the protein shakes favored by body builders who are looking to bulk up contains fat and lactose. Micro-filtered, high quality whey, which removes most of these two ingredients and is found in my own LynFit Complete Protein, is the fat-busting protein of choice. I use whey concentrate in my protein powder.
In fact, researchers at Syracuse University found that:
- Drinking a high quality whey, clean protein shake before your workout speeds fat loss
- People who drank a clean, low carb whey protein shake daily had higher metabolic rates
- Drinking a clean whey protein shake that provided adequate protein helped to lower the stress hormone cortisol, boosting metabolism
- Overeating dampens your dopamine response while drinking a clean protein shake combats this
So, other than drinking a protein shake, how can you use this high quality whey to help you speed up your metabolism and bust that fat? Here are 10 simple ways to use your Complete Protein:
1. Drink one immediately after a workout to nourish your muscles
2. Add 1 tablespoon to your morning coffee instead of milk
3. Try 1 - 2 scoops in your morning oatmeal
4. Put Complete Protein in your favorite baked goods
5. Add 1 tablespoon to yogurt or cottage cheese
6. Enjoy as hot chocolate or a light latte
7. Sprinkle on top of fruit or dunk your fruit right into a pile of powder
8. Add 1 tablespoon to your Jell-O mold
9. Make popsicles by freezing already-made shakes
10. Sprinkle on top of popcorn
For more information about Complete Protein and delicious Protein Shake recipes make sure to read my book, "The Metabolism Solution". And if you don't own a blender - no worries - it's "spoon-stirable".
Five Secrets To Help You Lose Weight While On Vacation
It's important to understand that the way you eat will determine if you lose weight or gain weight. Vacation is no exception. In fact, a vacation should be a time of taking care of yourself, inside and out.
Every day I hear the excuses: "Work is so busy I just can't eat right or find the time to exercise." The good news is these are actions we get to choose. Choose health and you'll not only feel better, you'll lose weight. Even on vacation.
I've been traveling a lot the past few months, and I've never been lighter. In fact, I've had to increase my caloric intake when I'm home to compensate because I've gotten so good at my travel routine. I lose too much weight (I never thought I would say that) when I travel.
Here are my Top Five secrets to losing weight while on vacation this summer:
Use Your Travel Time As A Cleansing Time
It doesn't matter whether you're driving or flying, you aren't exercising and need fewer calories, so eat less. Personally, I get motion sick, so I don't eat while traveling to and from while flying or driving if possible. For those extra-long flights or drives, I only eat a LynFit Lean Bar and drink loads of water.
Don't Be Afraid To Be Hungry - It's Good For You
Whatever we keep in our environment is what we'll eat so don't stock up on munchies. No one needs to be eating all day long. Not even your kids. Go back to the no-eating in between meals, especially if you will be eating out. Eating out always means more calories than you planned on, even if you're eating healthy choices.
Hunger means your body is about to start burning fat for fuel. You won't lose weight until you come to grips with this. A side note here: Starving is when you are underweight on the doctor's scale and going all day without eating. Eat according to my plans. You'll be providing your body with enough fuel to sustain life versus not providing nourishment by not eating all day long or eating foods that are full of excess calories, yet provide no nutrition whatsoever.
Don't Leave Home Without It
The LynFit Complete Protein Shake silly!
It's funny how we make excuses why we can't bring it (the Complete Protein Shakes) on vacation yet we make any excuse necessary to bring or eat all the wrong foods. I put my Complete Protein in zip lock bags, portioned out for every day. Then all I have to do is put the zip lock in my purse.
Here's a "Lisa Yummy Trick".....I give my Complete Protein to the bartender at the hotel and ask him or her to blend it up for me. I love it with ice and coffee - a Lean Mocha. This way I don't feel deprived at all. In fact, there have been times when the people standing around the bar have asked for a taste and didn't believe it was healthy.
Go On The Seafood Diet And Double Your Weight Loss
If you have read my book, "The Metabolism Solution", you learned that eating more fish or particular types of fish, compared to chicken, doubles your weight loss.
You can have a Complete Protein Shake for breakfast to boost your metabolism 25 percent (did you know the shake did that?) and offset the "not-so-good" calories we all end up eating from time to time. Then for lunch you can have a tossed salad with no cheese and use vinegar as your dressing with some shrimp for a light enjoyable meal.
Dinner should be about fish, salad, and vegetables. You should try to eat early. After all, it's your vacation, so you have control. Eat early the way our bodies are designed to and go to bed hungry! If you don't wake up hungry in the morning, you ate too much. If you have to, split an entree and if all else fails just have salad and a shrimp cocktail versus an entree with sides that may tempt you.
Turbocharge Your Weight Loss Without Stepping Foot In The Gym
I like to get up early and exercise or take the time while my family is eating a "hearty" breakfast to exercise. This also gives the downtime we all need when traveling with our families. Spending time alone to get grounded, or as I like to call it - regulated, allows me to be a better parent and also teaches our kids and families that we all need quiet time, especially when our eating habits are out of control.
This is a great "time-in" that allows you to give yourself a pep talk and clear your mind to get your eating back on track. I like to take walks outside while on vacation, going longer and slower than I normally would to allow myself time to sight see. I never feel like I'm not enjoying it.
I also do my Metabolic Booster workout in my room while waiting for my hair to dry or for slow teens to get out of the shower. I use water bottles or rolled-up washcloths and focus on form. If needed, I'll do extra repetitions until I feel the burn. I get better workouts this way.
Most hotels have or will bring you a DVD player so bring your DVDs. Better yet, download them onto your laptop or IPad and do the workouts in comfort and at your own pace. This is how the celebrities do it! Don't forget to get all the LynFit Metabolic downloads you'll need before you leave.
Remember, 90 percent of your weight loss is diet so even if you don't work out yet manage to keep your food clean you'll still lose weight. If you don't exercise and don't eat clean, then weight gain is unavoidable.
I use every opportunity I get as a way to eat healthier and sleep more versus eating poor and sleeping less. These behaviors are what get us in trouble in the first place. To see changes we need to make changes. Make this new routine your new normal, even when you get back home, and just watch what happens!
Here's a little bonus tip: Don't eat "off-plan" or cheat until your last day so you can't develop a new bad habit. I cheat (yes me) on my last day on any vacation. This is when I try new foods and experience the culture. If all else fails, remember the three-bite rule: You can always take three bites of something if you want to try it. Most of the time three bites will cost you about 100 calories that aren't enough to make you gain weight.

July 4th Indulgence? Slimming Metabolic Boosting Smoothies To The Rescue
Did you "indulge" over the July 4th holiday? Whether you had a barbecue or not you probably did. Even if you didn't overeat you probably had a continuous case of the munchies. Not to mention, it's summertime and sometimes that leads to a little too much liquid refreshment - if you know what I mean.
Not to worry! I'm going to let you in on two great Slimming Metabolic Boosting Smoothies that can rescue you and allow you to reclaim that summertime body you've worked so hard for. So, let's balance out your not-so-good holiday behavior with some good post-holiday behavior for the health of your body.
Are you one of those people who after a day of indulging you wake up and immediately want to grab another indulgence to make you feel better? Have I got a smoothie for you.....
The Holiday Hangover Helper Shake
Made with LynFit Chocolate Whey Protein Powder mixed with granulated coffee, this smoothie will immediately help you begin detoxing from any bad indulgences.
We hear all the time about vegetables and their super-protein but chocolate, in its pure form has just as many antioxidants, if not more, than vegetables. Antioxidants neutralize the damage done while indulging. Let's take a closer look at why LynFit Chocolate Whey Protein is so effective.
LynFit Chocolate Whey Protein is made from Chocolate Bean Powder. I just love that name - anything chocolate works for me. Chocolate Bean Powder boosts mood by raising the level of serotonin in our brains, and when we feel better we eat better and move around more. Chocolate Bean Powder contains more antioxidants than just about any other natural food. The raw cacao bean, from which the powder is made is estimated to include 30 natural compounds; including calcium, potassium, sodium, sulfur, zinc and copper, just to name a few.
Remember: this is not your standard chocolate. So don't think you can substitute half a can of Nestle's! Chocolate, milk chocolate and others used in candy, includes cocoa butter, sweeteners and many other additives. It is so highly processed that most of the benefits are removed and is not good for weight loss.
LynFit Chocolate Whey Powder is a highly effective ingredient that is perfect for weight loss. It has been de-fatted and purified, an expensive process that helps with fat loss. You cannot eat high-grade chocolate and get the same benefits (more information about Chocolate Bean Powder can be found on pages 30-31 of "The Metabolism Solution").
So, here's the ingredients for your Holiday Hangover Helper Shake:
2 scoops LynFit Chocolate Whey Powder
½ cup of ice
1 tsp granulate coffee
Boost your metabolism, block cortisol (the stress hormone that rises, especially when we over-indulge) that causes belly fat to be stored, and boost your mood today with the Holiday Hangover Helper Shake!
While the Holiday Hangover Helper Shake is my all-time favorite, the next would be my Skin Nourisher Shake.
The Skin Nourisher Shake
Especially during the summer months, we're damaging our skin in the sun. The Skin Nourisher Shake feeds our skin and re-nourishes it in three ways:
(1) LynFit Whey Protein in the shake helps feed and regenerate cells in our body;
(2) Blueberries loaded with antioxidants - a power food that helps neutralize free radical damage caused by the sun, and red raspberries - one of the highest fiber fruits you can eat that helps detox and cleanse.
(3) Green tea - loaded with antioxidants, theanine and amino acids that help you focus yet relax at the same time.
Ready to nourish your skin with a delectably good smoothie? Here's what you'll need:
1 scoop LynFit Vanilla Whey Powder
½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
1 pack pre-made green tea
5 ice cubes
These and other great-tasting, metabolic boosting Protein Shake recipes can be found on pages 46-47 of "The Metabolism Solution".
Here's hoping you have a "smoothie" summer!
Bedercise: "Unexercise" Fat Blasters
All you need is 3 minutes and a pair of dumbbells. You don't even have to get out of the bed to do these highly effective exercises - or "bedercises". It's virtually an "unexercise" that will get you results faster than you can say "diet"! No excuses, no gym needed but real life results in 1 week. Keep in mind the reason this works is because diet is 90% of your weight loss success.
One of the reasons our triceps jiggle so much is that we hardly use this muscle as women. That's why it's critical to lift weights at least 2-3 times per week, allowing 1 day off in between, to strengthen it and keep it tight and toned. Need lifting examples? Check out my DVD's HERE, and learn all the specifics in my book, The Metabolism Solution HERE.
Watch the video above and do the three moves below (featured in the video above) 2-3 times a week. 3 times weekly puts your results in the fast lane and be sure to lift weights heavy enough to make a difference.
FLATBLASTER #1 (1:01 mark of the video above): The Chest Lifter-Bra Fluff Destroyer
FLATBLASTER #2 (1:55 mark of the video above): The Triceps Tightener
FLATBLASTER #3: And, here's a bonus move (not demonstrated in the video above) - The Butt Lifter!
Lying on your back, place the dumbbells on your stomach for added weight. Simply lift your pelvis up, driving the move with your heels. This move tightens your butt and also makes your abs flatter.
Don't forget to take LynFit Omega-3 immediately after you work out to help your body heal and ease inflammation.
For more information about these and other metabolic workouts, make sure and refer to my book, The Metabolism Solution.
