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!

You're Stronger Than You Think!


Your body is programmed to protect itself from the discomfort of exercise. Your brain will try to slow you down or stop, even if you can physically push harder. If you want to become healthier and more fit, there are some specific things you will want to know that will help you reach your goals faster and easier. More importantly, you’ll become stronger. You’re stronger than you think. It’s just a matter of believing.

STRENGTHEN YOUR MIND

Challenge yourself if you want to change. You can learn to embrace challenge if you're serious and ready for a change. Challenging yourself will pull you out of your comfort zone, where the most dramatic changes occur. A comfort zone is a behavioral space where behaviors are routine. This minimizes stress, but it doesn’t produce change. If it doesn't challenge you, it can't change you. No changes = No changes!

The next time you’re about to quit, try going one minute longer or remind yourself that you won’t die if you miss dessert or ignore cravings for the wrong foods. Each time you talk yourself out of quitting and walk away from eating junk food, or beat your old benchmark at the gym, you’re chipping away at that mental block that’s been keeping you stuck where you are. It all starts with how you think, so watch your thoughts—they become your actions.

STRENGTHEN YOUR BODY

Do you want a strong, healthy body? Whether you’re working toward a 10K or any goal for that matter, it’s as easy as following a few simple steps consistently. Every time you choose to consistently do something good for your body, the dividends pay off—big time.

  1. Boost energy with vitamins and minerals instead of sugar and carbs. Is lack of energy your excuse? Instead of reaching for sugar and carbs that send you crashing after a workout, give your energy a boost with vitamins and minerals instead, to nourish your body rather than depleting it. LynFit Daily Power Shot is the perfect solution to your energy needs.

  2. Lift weights twice weekly to keep your muscles tightly toned and your metabolism boosted. Yoga, Pilates, and Zumba are all great, and while they beat the couch, they don’t count when it comes to lifting weights. It's simple science, so start lifting. All you need is a pair of dumbbells and a floor. No dumbbells, no problem—use any heavy object you have lying around.

  3. Walk more than you think you need to. Your body was designed to move every day. In fact, you require 10,000 steps daily to stay healthy. When you rest, you rust, so get up and get moving. You'll be healthier, physically and mentally.

    The best part about walking is you can do it anywhere. Everyone can walk, even if it's walking the dog. Even people recovering from open heart surgery walk. Track your steps using an inexpensive pedometer vs. a Fitbit®. Fitbit's® track all movements, including your arms, so it's not accurate enough.

  4. Recover and reboot your energy by feeding it right. If you want to be strong, you've got to do more than just work out. You also have to feed your body right. To keep your body strong, you need to make sure it's getting the fuel it needs to recover. Diet is responsible for 90 percent of success. Feed it to boost results, no matter what your goal is. If you're not seeing the desired results, chances are you're not eating right.

    Replace lost nutrients and protein with a healthy smoothie after your workout. Whey is the best choice because it's loaded with essential amino acids and has the highest PER (protein efficiency rating) of any other food. Whey is a Ferrari where all others are a Ford Focus. Taste counts too. If it's not delicious, you won't drink it consistently.

    Try this delicious Birthday Cake Protein Shake recipe after your workout to replace the protein your body needs to heal and repair, so you become stronger.

    (2–3 scoops) LynFit Vanilla Complete Protein
    (5) Ice cubes
    (½–1 cup) Water (more for a thinner shake, less for a thicker shake)
    Blend ingredients together until smooth—Enjoy!

Moms Of Multiples Crave 4-Times More Sugar!

Moms of Multiples

If there's anything moms of multiples know all too well, it's chronic stress. While they are doubly blessed, studies show that moms of multiples experience quadruple the stress, especially during the toddler and teen ages.

This chronic stress affects each mom in a different way, and for lots of moms, it's intense sugar cravings due to hormonal changes and chronic fatigue that stresses our adrenal glands to the point of overload. All of which zaps our energy, sending us running for anything that's sweet. 

The sweet tooth makes things worse because it sends our blood sugar levels soaring and the aftermath of that quick sugar-fix high is an energy crisis crash. This is a viscous cycle and the reason why we become addicted to sugar.

How do you kill a sugar craving rather than giving in to it?

  • Drink more water to help flush your system and cut back on caffeine. Switch to herbal teas instead.
  • Stop eating the wrong kinds of sugar. Go cold turkey to get the best results. Swap your cookie or sweet treat for a delicious green apple. Green apples have super powers when it comes to satisfying sweet cravings and turning off your hunger hormones.​
  • Graze on lean, clean protein throughout the day such as egg whites, 1–2 ounces of turkey breast, or your best bet is a clean low calorie, low sugar, low carbohydrate whey protein shake or Lean Bar. The right protein can make your life easier when things get busy, and it requires no thinking, planning or prep. Lean, clean protein nourishes your body, giving your brain what it's craving while boosting mood and energy. This healthy habit is always the best remedy when it comes to killing sugar cravings.
  • Of course, it goes without saying that we need to be as concerned about our rest as much as we worry about our kid's rest. Go to bed at the same time as your kids and you'll wake up feeling refreshed and renewed the next morning so you can enjoy every second with your precious kids. You'll be setting the very best example for your kids.​Self care is the most important job we have as a mom. Who knows—you might even wake up early enough to workout before the kids get up.

Kill Cravings This Valentine's Day And Still Eat Chocolate

Kill Cravings this Valentine's Day and Still Eat Chocolate

Food cravings are the reason most diets fail. They are like pimples that pop out of nowhere. If you're like me, you'll stop at nothing to kill them off, stat!

What if I told you there’s a quicker, more effective way to kill your cravings and curb your monster appetite rather than giving into them or caving into the vending machine?

Follow these tips to instantly kill off those cravings. For more tips and tricks on how to boost your metabolism and melt belly fat, check out The Metabolism Solution, and the metabolic boosting Chocolate Diet linked below.

  • Feed it First: The #1 reason we crave is due to nutritional deficiencies, and the #1 nutrient deficiency among women is protein. Your body needs amino acids to regulate serotonin which helps boost mood. Drinking the Complete Protein Shake for breakfast is the best way to provide your body with the essential amino acids it needs to stay healthy and keep your mood balanced. Prevention is the cure when it comes to killing cravings so make it a LynFit Chocolate Protein Shake and kill two birds with one stone.
  • Brush the cravings right out of your mouth: In my 25+ years as a weight loss coach every person who does this trick says it works—Always keep a travel size toothbrush and toothpaste with you, and brush your teeth after meals and when cravings strike. The fresh minty taste makes eating less desirable and distracts you from obsessing about what to eat. Distraction is powerful when it comes to avoiding your cravings. Studies have shown that mint is a good appetite suppressant, and people who sniff (brushing counts too) mint throughout the day ate 3,000 fewer calories that week. That’s enough to move the dial on the scale. Just don’t be obsessive about brushing your teeth every hour, as excessive brushing wears down tooth enamel.
  • Drink mint flavored water: You’ve heard me say this a thousand times, but it's worth saying again—Most of the time when we crave it's really because we're thirsty. Drink mint flavored water to quench the crave. Buy a few fresh mint leaves and drop some in your water. You can drink the minted water hot or cold. It's very satisfying and will help tame your cravings.
    Note: Always buy mint flavored water to have on hand to guzzle when your cravings get the best of you.
  • Chew mint gum: Always have mint gum in your car, purse and desk to chew on when the urges get rough. Chewing gum does many things—It gives you something to chew when you really aren’t hungry but need to chew on something, and the repetitive motion sends signals to a part of your brain that controls appetite and satiety. If your brain thinks you're eating it will send signals that you're full. Unless, of course, your shut off valve has been damaged and broken (if you've gained more than 10 pounds your shut off valve is broken and damaged and will need to be retrained by sticking to your food plan). In this case, you’ll have to white knuckle it until things get better. The sweet taste also activates the release of the feel-good brain chemical called serotonin. Low serotonin levels cause cravings to pop up in the first place.
  • Stress less: Stress will cause your body to release the stress hormone cortisol, which tells your brain to seek out rewards or pleasure. This is why we always crave the wrong things. Enter fat and sugar loaded comfort foods that blunt cortisol and temporarily stop stress. What you’re really craving is to feel better. Find other ways to stimulate happiness that do not including eating to help curb high-calorie cravings. Take a walk break, even if it’s to go get a cup of green tea, or call a friend until the moment passes. The quick chat will trigger a stress reducing emotional release that food can never fill. When all else fails, I hit pause and pray. I say The Serenity Prayer and place my dog in my lap and wait until the craving passes. After all, I didn't get to be 40 pounds overweight by not overeating!

For all the chocolate lovers, here's another great way to still lose 1 pound per day, while eating chocolate. It's the Metabolic Boosting Chocolate Diet (click HERE for the diet).

Fasting For Spiritual Renewal - Not Just For Weight Loss

Fasting
Wanna know the REAL LynFit difference? Unlike other weight loss programs, we deal with weight loss "from the inside out". That's where the biggest changes need to be made, and where the root of many problems are. Dealing with weight loss in this manner is the best for lasting weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try to focus on good and positive things all you can see is the bad. Seeing nothing but bad eventually leads us to focusing on self-centeredness, unable to hear our own inner voice. Fasting is more than just not eating meat on Fridays. Fasting is a way to leave behind that physical pain, those bad thoughts, that self-centeredness. Fasting removes our dependency from all things that block our sensitivity to the spiritual.

I want to take you on a little journey to give you a glimpse into my "why" when it comes to living a Leaner Lifestyle, even after I reached my goal weight. For me, and I'm guessing there are many others of you who would agree, reaching that goal weight was just the beginning. Weight loss was the physical renewal that was visible to everyone. The REAL renewal was what took place on the inside. Those deepest darkest places that no one else could see. That renewal was a spiritual renewal. No, not a religious renewal that was tied to a certain set of doctrinal beliefs or a religious denomination. Rather a true deep-rooted spiritual renewal that was directly tied to my personal relationship with a very personal God. A relationship that allows me to live a life of clean eating to honor my body rather than junking it up.

The Metabolic Boosting: Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan (found in "The Metabolism Solution") fits perfectly with fasting lifestyles, making it easier to stick to your fast regardless of your religion. This in turn allows you to concentrate on the reason why you're fasting in the first place, keeping your body and mind healthy so you can focus on the more important things in life - renewing your spirit and not just focusing on your body.

For me, fasting brings deeper meaning to my life and helps me to hear God's voice more clearly, allowing me to live according to His will. In short, it brings clarity to my life. At my church, Northeast Community Church, we fast together as a community and as individuals. I would love for you to join with me this week spending time reading, reflecting and praying using this Daily Spiritual Renewal Guide (You may print the guide out directly from the link. Special thanks to Northeast Community Church for content).

Make sure you break your fast in as clean a way as possible by referring to the clean recipe in the Renewal Guide for the last day. Your system will have been purified and your spirit renewed. Let's not "junk" it right back up with heavy eating to only weigh you right back down again.

I am thrilled that you're taking this journey of spiritual renewal with me. I can't wait to hear your stories of how God worked in and through your life. I challenge all of us to dig deep and lose that excess baggage we've been carrying around. And not just of the unwanted physical weight variety.

For more information about fasting and weight loss refer to "The Metabolism Solution: God and Your Bod".

Note: During a time of fasting it's a good idea to decrease your workouts

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.

For more metabolism boosting tips and tricks make sure to read my book, "The Metabolism Solution".

Naturally Boost Your Metabolism To Jump Start Your Weight Loss

Many of you emailed me after watching Janine's before and after story on Better TV asking me how you can naturally boost your metabolism to jump start your weight loss. So, for those who have not yet seen it, I wanted to show you that segment that inspired thousands of people to make the life changing decision to lose weight for good. Congratulations to all of you who have already lost 20 or more pounds since seeing the segment and if you need this type help please contact me to get your weight loss jump started.

If you've ever felt like trying to lose weight is just more difficult for you than for other people, or you've been gaining and losing weight your whole life and haven't successfully kept if off, then this if for you. I'm going to teach you how to naturally boost your metabolism to jump start your weight loss so you can safely lose those pounds.

How do you know if you need to be aggressive when it comes to boosting your metabolism?

      • Have you been 15-20 pounds or more overweight for more than 5 years?
      • Are you more than 40 years old?
      • Do you struggle with hypothyroid or thyroid conditions that affect your weight?
      • Are you diabetic or pre-diabetic?
      • Do you eat healthy and exercise regularly yet still can't lose weight?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions it may take an aggressive approach to get your body to lose weight. Here is the plan that helped Janine lose weight. She was 85 pounds overweight and we needed to boost her metabolism aggressively to jump start her weight loss. Doing so allowed her to lose 1 pound a day. Seeing those immediate results made it easier for her to stick to her plan.

STEP ONE: METABOLISM MAKEOVER

Follow the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse to quickly recalibrate your appetite, which will also switch your cravings to "off". This "heat up" of your metabolism will also block cortisol levels which helps melt belly fat. This is called thermogenic eating and is described in detail in "The Metabolism Solution".

Further boost your metabolism by having a Whey Complete Protein Shake EXACTLY 12 hours after your last meal. This will not only boost your metabolism 25% by feeding muscle which burns more calories but also starve the fat so it leaves.

For 30% faster results, empty the contents of the LynFit Accelerator capsule into your Protein Shake. It contains an ingredient that blunts the hunger signal because it makes you feel full.

NOTE: When it comes to supplements it's not only the ingredients that matters, it's also the quality of the ingredients. The higher the ingredient quality the more effective if will work and you'll see results faster. The right supplement with the highest quality ingredients will make losing weight easier. In order to guarantee these results you must use LynFit products. While I'm not saying that LynFit supplements are the only ones that will work, I can only speak to the quality of my products and their ingredients. I know many people who have tried inferior products with inferior quality and they did not see results.

STEP TWO: BURN THE FAT


Just because we've heated up your metabolism and you're now eating thermogenically doesn't mean your body is automatically going to burn fat. To start the fat burning, replace your mid-morning snack with tea and (1) LynFit Cutting Edge. Quite honestly, most of us aren't even hungry at that time; we're just programmed to eat. The Cutting Edge has an ingredient, L-Carnitine that lures fat into the cell and persuades your body to burn it as fuel. So as your metabolism is beginning to take a nose dive 3 hours from Step #1, we've now spurted it back up again.

STEP THREE: RESHAPE YOUR BODY

Just because you lose weight doesn't mean you're going to look fit. I'm sure you've seen people who have lost a lot of weight and they have really just become a smaller version of their original self. That's why we need to also reshape your body.

Curb your munch hour cravings by munching on a green apple and taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge every afternoon. Why a green apple? It's lower in sugar while at the same time shutting off your sweet craving by satisfying it without wanting more. The Carb Edge helps lower and balance blood sugar levels, which cause us to crave, while enhancing thyroid function. It also contains Forskolin which helps your body burn more fat as fuel.

You'll notice that I haven't said anything about exercise. For Janine, I only had her walk and stretch because she was in so much pain and I wanted her to know that when her food was on track or clean enough she could still lose weight without exercise. That being said, you can and should, be doing the metabolic boosting exercises only while trying to lose weight, as other forms of exercise can interfere with your weight loss.

Are you ready to Lose 1 Pound Per Day?

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.

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!
