7 Pounds Slimmer In 7 Days



Have you ever asked yourself: "Why is America getting heavier every year, but there is a gym on every street corner and a diet for every day of the week?" It's all about the speed of our metabolism, and most of us lack that speed. We're stuck in the slow lane.

Most of what we've been taught about weight loss is all wrong. We're watching TV shows that tell us to eat like cavemen, put butter into our coffee, and to eat avocados to slim our thighs. Not to mention, we actually believe we can eat too little and that slows weight loss. Really? We're living in a way that is damaging our metabolisms, and many of the so-called "healthy" things we do are to blame for our weight gain because they damage our metabolism, slowing it down and making it way too easy to gain weight.

Have you ever had a single bad day of eating and seemed to have gained 2 pounds overnight? The 5 simple slimming solutions below will help you to harness the power of your metabolism, making weight loss faster and easier no matter how slow your metabolism is or how old you are. Safely flip the switch on your metabolism into high gear so you lose weight just as quickly as you gained it. Do these 5 proven strategies and you'll lose 1 pound per day and melt belly fat fast.

ACCELERATE YOUR WEIGHT LOSS WITH THERMOGENIC EATING

Thermogenic eating is not only the best way to lose 1 pound per day but also bust through your weight loss plateaus. Thermogenic eating heats up your metabolism and recalibrates your appetite, switching your cravings to "off". This can be as simple as swapping your usual carb-filled or caveman breakfast for a clean, whey protein shake made with ice and coffee for a Slimming Lean Latte. Remember to wait 12 hours after your last meal to enjoy your smoothie. This one simple step can help you break through your weight loss plateau no matter what plan you're on.

Lean Latte Recipe

Mix the following items together in a shaker cup or blender. Be sure to look for whey that is low-calorie (150 calories or less), less than 5 grams of sugar, dairy free, soy free, and high-grade micro-filtered for the best results.

(2) scoops of whey - Vanilla or Chocolate
(5) ice cubes
(1) teaspoon granulated coffee
½ cup of water
*Do not add fruit or milk of any kind; including coconut or almond milk.

BOOST YOUR METABOLISM WITH METABOLIC BOOSTING WORKOUTS

Studies show that vigorous exercise isn't necessary. In fact, it may be your problem. Metabolic workouts are best at fat burning and fast weight loss; not to mention they reshape the body without bulking. You only have to do 3 metabolic workouts weekly to see results in that same week. Want to turbo charge that metabolic workout? Add 10,000 steps daily to blast that fat away.

EXPOSED: When it comes to boosting metabolism, metabolic workouts blow away other workouts such as Pilates, Yoga, and even extreme workouts such as boot camps and cross fit.

CRUSH CRAVINGS NATURALLY WHILE BOOSTING MOOD WITH THE SMART USE OF SAFE SUPPLEMENTS

The same way we use power tools to make tasks easier, specific nutrients can make losing weight easier by crushing cravings and boosting mood. Sometimes diet and exercise just aren't enough. Most of us already have these natural nutrients in our medicine cabinets. Smart use of these nutrients can stop cravings before they even begin. A few of my favorites are Vitamin D, Omega-3, and B-Complex. For really tough times I depend on Cocoa Bean Powder mixed with green tea for a quick pick-me-up.

The magic is in the timing of these specific nutrients. I suggest taking them 1-2 hours before cravings kick in, as a prevention. My motto has always been; take Omega-3 at 3pm.

SUPPLEMENT ALERT: If you don't see or feel results in 2 weeks using non-LynFit supplements - STOP. You most likely are not going to see results with that regimen. It's important that you only take high quality supplements. You might spend a little more but you'll use less with LynFit supplements, saving you money in the long run and you'll get faster results.

DO IT NOW!

Don't wait. If you're waiting for the perfect time to start losing weight you'll always be waiting. Start now and you can be 1 pound lighter by tomorrow. How much more motivation do you need? Set your default to "yes" and do it today.

EAT 3 MEALS (SMOOTHIES CAN COUNT AS A MEAL) AND 1 SNACK A DAY TO BOOST WEIGHT LOSS AND MELT FAT

Drink warm water with lemon, or hot tea (minus the milk and sugar) in between meals and grab a small green apple mid-afternoon to kill cravings and keep things regular. Most of us just "think" we're hungry. Often it's just thirst. When it comes to water, drink ½ your body weight in ounces daily to keep your metabolism running smoothly. Being dehydrated can slow your metabolism by 3%. Melt fat by drinking more water.

Slimming Supermarket Secrets

Flat abs are really made in the supermarket! Supermarkets sell over 50,000 items, yet studies show that if you have more than 100 items in your refrigerator and cabinets combined, you’re guaranteed to have weight problems!

 We all know that we should shop the perimeter of the store, but many of us are still sidetracked into the snack aisles to get our fix! It’s no wonder why we struggle to lose weight, but it’s really as simple as buying only the foods that promote weight loss. Remember, you can’t eat it if you don’t buy it!  Focus on the foods that are good for weight loss and shop only in those aisles.

Learn what aisles to shop in and what aisles to avoid if you’re trying to lose stubborn body fat.

Shop: Near-Zero Calorie Produce

Choose produce that creates a near-zero calorie flow. That means choosing foods that are so low in calories that you’ll be burning them while you eat them: shredded cabbage, celery, spinach, romaine and all lettuces. Any vegetable that’s leafy and green is good for weight loss. Not buying enough vegetables is the number-one mistake people make when shopping. Vegetables help keep us feeling full and it’s the answer to living lean, so buy at least a week’s worth of vegetables and fruits so you’re never without.

Keep in mind that you are supposed be eating at least 7 servings a day, and that’s 42 servings a week. Stock up and never underestimate the power of frozen veggies! They stay fresh and are always available when you need them.

Buy More: Romaine lettuce, spinach, kale, cabbage, celery, radishes, mushrooms, cauliflower and broccoli, frozen spinach, and green beans

Buy Less:  Carrots, tomatoes, corn and peas

 

Shop: Metabolism-Boosting Proteins

Lean proteins are the key to boosting your metabolism! My rule is the lighter and whiter the protein, the better your weight loss will be because it’s very low in fat and calories. The top three proteins for weight loss are Whey protein (high quality only), white fish, and egg whites.

Check out fresh fish when it’s on sale and try flash frozen because it’s fresher; you can stock your freezer so you’re never without a clean-lean protein. Buy three times as much fish to poultry and you’ll lose weight faster! Poultry and other meat are higher in fat and calories and harder to digest, slowing weight loss.

Buy More: Complete whey protein, sole, scrod, cod, tilapia, barramundi and egg whites

Buy Less: Chicken, turkey breast, and stay away from red meat if you’re serious about losing weight – and that includes pork! It’s not the other white meat!

 

Avoid: Grains, Pasta, Bread and Cereals

Run – don’t walk – past these aisles! If you’re trying to lose stubborn body fat, it doesn’t matter how healthy the grain is. If you’re storing excess fat around your stomach, you don’t need more carbs!  However, we all live in the real world and need snacks. If you need to crunch, go for popcorn!

Consider these foods dessert and you’ll send fat packing!

Buy More: Air-popped popcorn and Japanese Ak-mak crackers

Buy Less: Cereals, pasta, bread, crackers, rice, potatoes, and, yes, even quinoa and couscous are fat-storing carbs!


AvoidSugary Beverages

We are drinking ourselves fat! No one ever thinks about these types of empty calories and the dangerous substance is called sugar. We are now taking in 66 pounds of added sugar a year. Most of these excess sugar/empty calories come from not-so-obvious places, like our coffee from adding creamers and sugar. Agave and fat-free creamers count! A few other unsuspecting fat-belly culprits are fruit juice, even if it’s 100% fruit juice and vitamin-packed waters, coconut water and energy drinks! No matter how harmless they may seem, they are at the heart of our growing national obesity problem. If it’s not calorie-free water, it’s liquid calories!

Buy More: Zero-calorie, zero-sugar water, calorie-free green tea and coffee

Buy Less: Coffee creamers, juice, energy drinks, sports drinks, almond milk, and soy milk

By None: Alcohol because it stops fat loss dead in its tracks every time!

 

Avoid: The Health Halo Aisle

Believe it or not, this aisle is responsible for more weight gain than the candy aisle. Most protein shakes and bars contain more sugar and fat than a bag of candy! The tricky part is that we think they are healthy because they came from the health food aisle. If you’re trying to lose weight and stubborn body fat, you should run past this aisle. There wasn’t one item in this aisle that could be used for health or weight loss because they are all loaded with calories. If it seems too good to be true it is! For example, you can’t buy a protein shake mix for $15.00 and expect that it is a high-quality supplement. It’s the quality that counts, so in the end, you wind up spending more, and you’ll most likely end up putting on more weight.
 

3 Ways to Cut Calories Without Being Hungry

We all know that the trick to losing weight is to eat less. But how – especially when you feel like you are starving?

One of the most important things I can teach you is that 98 percent of the hunger we feel is HEAD hunger, not REAL hunger. That usually means we are stressed, and most of us over eat when we are stressed and anxious. The solution here is not to eat when you feel that way because we will almost always over eat on the wrong things.

Did you know: Eating when you’re stressed in the number-one cause of fat storage around your waist. When we are stressed, our cortisol rises and that makes fat run to your stomach to be stored!

Freeze and do an assessment of what you’re really feeling. Most times it’s not about food but about being tired and anxious. Food doesn’t fix those things; it becomes the problem.

This is one of the top reasons we are overweight in the US. We are over-stressed and we all think we can fix this with a magic pill or food, but the truth is it’s all in our head! Here are three things you can do to help you eat less and lose more weight. The best part is, it’s guaranteed to work and all you have to do is do it!

Step 1
Stop and take 3-5 deep breaths and ask yourself how you feel. No matter what you’re feeling, it will pass if you can wait 3-5 minutes before reaching for food. Take as many deep breaths as you need to get back to a more balanced place. Deep breathing is also one of the best ways to lower your cortisol levels and slim your waistline! Do not eat until you feel in control. Don’t worry – you won’t starve!

Step 2
Grab a glass of water; if that doesn’t work, make it two! Hot water or hot tea works wonders to fill you up and is very soothing to calm your nerves. Try water with bubbles like Perrier to fill up your belly with air. Did you know: Being dehydrated slows your metabolism 3-5% and mimics hunger.

Step 3
Studies show that taking a supplement like white kidney bean extract or drinking a protein shake one hour before your meal makes you feel full, and you end up eating 25 percent less. LynFit Nutrition supplements are layered with high quality ingredients that keep you feeling full, and block fat and carbs from being absorbed; such supplements also include B complex vitamins to help ease stress and anxiety that cause these cravings to begin with.
