It's Time To Take A New Approach To Weight Loss

If you have tried every diet on the planet, and no matter what you do you just can't seem to lose weight or get rid of that belly fat, it's time to take a new approach. When it comes to losing weight and changing the way your body looks four simple steps could make weight loss practically effortless. No matter how old you are or how sluggish your metabolism is, this plan works every time. 

I was recently on KTNV TV in Las Vegas where we discussed in depth this fast fat-melting approach. Below is a brief transcript of that interview. 

HOST: What makes this plan so much more effective than the other plans that are available? 

LL: This plan addresses the metabolism issues that are at the center of the problem. Being overweight, eating less in order to lose weight, low energy, age, being female as well as being a "diet researcher" (trying all of the diets) all affect our metabolism making it slower. With each issue mentioned, it makes losing weight impossible unless you address the underlying problem—the speed of your metabolism. But that's not all. This system is backed by science and address’s all of the issues we all struggle with when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off.

HOST: I struggle myself with issues like low energy and cravings. It seems like I have to work twice as hard as my friends to lose weight. I can't seem to get to the gym every day. Does Metabolic Boosting help overcome these issues? Do we have to exercise to lose weight if we use “The Metabolic Boosting” plan?

LL: I was 40 pounds overweight and had tried every diet including becoming vegetarian and over-exercising. I gained weight until I learned these safe, yet highly effective, all-natural methods that can boost even the most sluggish metabolisms. Including metabolisms that are negatively affected by hypothyroidism and menopausal symptoms. In fact, it's the only way to lose weight if your one of these types. No excuses needed.

Here are 4 Simple Steps that anyone can do—no exercise needed. In fact, the wrong exercise or over-exercising can slow down the process.

Step 1: Boost your Metabolism by 25 percent at breakfast with a delicious Complete Protein Metabolic Boosting Smoothie.
Only LynFit's Complete Protein has the right combination of high-quality protein, low carbs, low sugar and almost no fat. Unlike other store bought
smoothies, LynFit's Complete Protein encourages weight loss vs. weight gain. That results in the 1 pound a day weight loss.

WHEN? 12 Hours after your last meal.
HOW MUCH? 2 scoops in coffee or water equal no excess calories.

Step 2: Take LynFit Accelerator and jump start your metabolism naturally.
This step accelerates the weight loss process naturally and is highly effective at recalibrating your appetite, which helps to keep you feeling fuller longer. LynFit Accelerator kills cravings while making it easier to burn fat easier due to the raspberry ketones in it.

WHEN? First thing in the morning with a Complete Protein Shake. You can take them separately, but for the best results it's better to take them together.
HOW MUCH? One capsule daily
. Unlike other store-bought brands, you don't need as much, and you'll see better, faster results.

Step 3: Convince your body to burn off that stubborn fat with LynFit Cutting Edge.
This step pulls/lures the fat that's circulating in your system and drags it into the cells to be burned off and used as fuel. It also helps reduce cellulite, controls hunger, lowers cholesterol, and accelerates the fat loss process. Making it easier to lose that stubborn unsightly belly fat.

WHEN? Take this 3 hours after the breakfast
HOW MUCH? 1 capsule

Step 4: Boost, Block, and Burn by taking LynFit Carb Edge 3 hours after Step 3.
Carb Edge helps further reduce and control cravings while lowering blood sugar levels that are responsible for intense cravings. This step is specifically/strategically placed here mid-day as those are the times we crave the most, blood sugar levels rise and our diets get off course. Carb Edge has an added feature we all need…..it contains White Kidney Bean Extract. If you take it before you cheat and eat carbs, it blocks 65 percent of them from being absorbed, preventing weight gain. Imagine eating a whole donut and absorbing less.

WHEN: After Step 3 or when needed before meals.
HOW MUCH? 1 capsule

When you combine these four simple steps with a fuss-free, no-calorie-counting, delicious, thermogenic dinner, you're guaranteed to lose 1 pound a day.

The Metabolism Solution plan is the only plan that allows you to lose weight the very same day you start while you're learning how to eat for lifelong weight loss. Why wait to lose when you can lose weight today?

The Wedding Day Shape-Up Challenge — Not Just For Brides

 

Get in shape fast before any special occasion coming up with this Shape-Up Challenge.

So, it just hit you that you have very little time left to get in shape before the wedding or special occasion. You're not alone. Don't worry, there are tricks that can help you lose weight and get in shape when the calendar is not on your side.

In fact, brides are the most motivated when it comes to getting in shape and shedding excess body fat. This shape-up challenge isn't just for brides, however. It's for anyone who wants to blast fat and get into shape fast. Anyone can use these simple tricks to reach their goals. If losing weight and getting in shape fell to the bottom of your priority list, this plan is for you.

Research shows that a sense of urgency is the best motivator. But first, it’s important to believe that you can lose 1 pound per day and see physical changes in the first week. To accomplish this, you’ll have to be disciplined and follow the suggested regimen at least 80 percent of the time.

You said you wanted fast results, right? Here's the plan, in three simple steps. The Wedding Day Shape up Challenge: Say "I do" to the following advanced techniques for 7, 14, 21 days, or as long as you need.

  1. Blast fat fast by switching to metabolic workouts first thing in the morning on an empty stomach
    Metabolic workouts get you into tip-top shape three times faster than any other workout. They boost your metabolism, so you burn calories all day long. 

    Do (3) 30-minute metabolic workouts at home every week. Walk or save your Pilates and yoga for active rest in between metabolic workouts.

    THINSPIRATION: 80 percent of your weight loss is based on what you eat. The other 20 percent comes from exercise.

  2. Boost your metabolism 25 percent and replace lost nutrients after your workout by drinking a metabolism boosting Whey Protein Shake
    Not just any protein shake will do when you’re trying to tone up, which means to burn off excess fat while firming and tightening without bulk. Only metabolic boosting shakes will recalibrate your appetite and kill cravings, making it easier to stick to your plan. All this while providing the exact amount of protein your body needs without excess calories, sugar or carbs that can bulk you up and stop fat loss. 

    *Note: High-quality whey also helps boost immunity and block cortisol (stress hormone) levels from rising, which is critical when you’re under stress, making it easier to lose belly fat.

  3. Eat more “thermogenic” foods and fewer grains and fats
    This is the simplest way to lose weight, burn fat fast, and boost immunity so you look radiant on your big day. I’ve seen clients drop a pound per day and lose body fat (their abs even started to show) by eating cleaner foods such as; broccoli, cauliflower, egg whites, complete whey protein, white fish, and of course, drinking plenty of water. These are super foods that fill you up quickly. They provide a lot of nutrients that your body needs now more than ever. 

I recommend a minimum of three to four 30-minute sessions of cardio per week, and (3) 30-minute metabolic boosting workouts. These can be adjusted according to your goals. Some may need to kick your cardio up to five or six times per week. Cardio can be anything from going for a walk or cycling. In fact, that is much easier on your joints and makes you less prone to injuries.

If you're serious about being a buffed bride and need help, feel free to contact me. I’m happy to answer your questions.

Play 'Diet Detective' To Find Weight Loss Solutions

Turkey WrapIf you're trying to lose weight or your weight loss has stopped, this message is for you. In The Metabolism Solution, I teach you how to lose 1 pound every day the fast and easy way. The metabolic boosting program is the no-fuss way to lose weight and melt belly fat. 

First things first, however. Before you can move forward with your weight loss to overcome the inevitable plateaus you've got to know your numbers. Sometimes you will have to play 'diet detective' to find the solutions to your weight loss problems. Questions like: Do you know how many fat grams you're eating every day? When was the last time you counted your carbs? 

Many of us don't have a clue about how many fats and carbs we consume every day. This is exactly what stops us from losing weight. If you don't know your numbers, you'll never know when you're overeating. 

In this blog entry, we're going to look at some of the biggest mistakes I see people make when they're trying to lose weight when thinking they're eating healthy and they really aren't.

ALERT: IF YOU'RE OVER 40-YEARS-OLD AND FEMALE, YOU WON'T LOSE WEIGHT
WITHOUT KNOWING YOUR NUMBERS

Let's get started by taking the Diagnose Your Diet Quiz to see where you might be slipping up. Don't forget to read "Food Sins That Stop Weight Loss" in The Metabolism Solution for more information.

SLIP-UP #1: You're eating a seemingly healthy bowl of bran flakes for breakfast each morning

This so-called healthy cereal starts your day off with carbohydrates that go straight to your waistline. It's high in carbs that spike blood sugar levels, making it almost impossible to lose weight. Since the bran flakes contains more than a third of the day's carbohydrate budget you sure won't lose belly fat either. If you add a banana and milk to the bran flakes, you make matters worse. Bananas and milk spike blood sugar levels, flipping your system into weight gain mode vs. weight loss mode.

Slimming Solution: Grab a LynFit Complete Protein Shake or LynFit Lean Bar instead.You'll not only save on the calories, you'll boost your metabolism by 25 percent, making it easier to to lose 1 pound each day and melt belly fat fast. WARNING: Not all protein shakes will have the same effect. The LynFit Complete Protein Shake has metabolic boosting properties that are geared specifically for weight loss. 

SLIP-UP #2: The so-called healthy Turkey Wrap lunch

While this wrap may seem healthier than a burger, hot dog, fries, etc.,—is it? Wraps contain more carbs and fat grams than most of us realize. This puts the brakes on weight loss and acts to accelerate weight gain. That's not even taking into account the fat and carbs included with the dressing in the wrap.

Slimming Solution: Grab a lean salad instead, but be careful how you top it. The absolute best method to lose that 1 pound every day and lose that muffin top in time for bathing suit season is to have another LynFit metabolic boosting Complete Protein Shake with a vegetable salad dressed only with plain vinegar. This will give your metabolism the boost it needs to shed pounds and melt fat fast. If you feel you need to chew, swap out the Shake with a LynFit Lean Bar.

SLIP-UP #3: The so-called Slimming Salad

I almost passed out when I first started trying to lose weight and switched from burgers to salads. I was gaining weight instead of losing. Little did I realize that the salads contained more calories, carbs and fats than those "unhealthy" burgers. Who knew? That's why it's imperative that you know your numbers before you dig into that salad. 

Slimming Solution: Go heavy on the leafy greens and always swap out fatty meats and chicken for some fish. Remember: The lighter and whiter the fish the better for your metabolism. Just by swapping out your chicken for fish you can jumpstart your weight loss and help you bust through that plateau you've been stuck at.

Your Weight Problem May Be The Government's Fault

Every day I have people crying out to me in despair saying, “I have always been able to eat this food without gaining weight and now when I eat it I gain 5 pounds immediately." Or “I track everything I eat in XYZ app and yet I still can’t lose belly fat." Trying to find the reasons for this is a little bit harder than it used to be. You may think you’re eating the right way, but you aren’t. It’s getting harder to teach people the “why’s” behind all these dilemmas, and that’s because you have to unlearn pretty much what you’ve been taught about food portions and labels. I had to forget everything I had learned and start fresh. Only then did I begin to lose weight in spite of my slow metabolism.

Because there is so much confusion over what a correct serving size is there is no standard reference point for you to determine what the appropriate amount of food to eat is. Let alone what you should be eating in the first place. Package labels differ so much from brand to brand that you cannot assume that the same amount of low-fat potato chips, say 15 chips per serving, doesn’t change from one brand to the next. Guess what? It does. 

You might think that in this day and age labeling and servings would be designed by a more scientific approach. I always assumed that serving sizes are calculated to goals. So if you are trying to lose weight, you should eat this certain amount, but if you are attempting to gain or maintain it would be a different amount. Makes perfect sense that serving sizes should be different when you’re a 6-foot tall 30-year-old man and a 4-foot 9-inch woman who is 55. But how is it that growing children, teens, and people who are active are told to use the same serving sizes that you are when trying to lose weight and shrink your waistline? Have you ever thought of it this way? Shouldn’t serving sizes be a little bit different if you are tall or short or whether you have lots of muscle or very little muscle? Ideally, shouldn’t serving sizes factor in the rate you burn calories, take into account your metabolism’s speed?

I speak from my personal experience and the experiences of all the people I have helped over the years. Every time I tried to follow the food pyramid recommendations put forth by the U.S. government— and, by the way, I was meticulous about serving sizes—I still gained weight. My metabolism is so slow that if I even look at ½ a serving of pasta I gain 5 pounds, yet my 6-foot tall and fairly active husband skips pasta at one meal and loses 10 pounds. (Okay, so that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but it sure feels like it.) I’m hoping this gets you thinking. You have to be your own detective when it comes to losing weight.

Serving guidelines cannot serve as gospel, but merely as a rough gauge. The scale will show you every time if you’re on the right track. If the scale isn’t moving, you’re still eating too much or eating the wrong foods for your metabolism. It’s often a food you just can’t let go of (a little cream in the coffee, perhaps?) but need to. I urge you to follow my plan. It is guaranteed to work every time. Don’t stop following these principals until you have lost all that fat you have hated for years. Your weight gain (or lack of weight loss) is not all your fault. Serving sizes (food choices, too) are mostly to blame.

Take away—follow the metabolic boosting plan and you're guaranteed to lose 1 pound a day. If you're not, you're eating too much. It's that simple. It works when you work it!

 

Fast, Healthy Weight Loss

 

Are you getting ready for the beach, graduation, prom or a wedding but can’t stay on your diet and fitness plan? This can be overwhelming for anyone.

The good news is that anyone can boost their metabolism by doing these two things:

    • Working out first thing in the morning at home, on an empty stomach to boost metabolism and endorphins.
    • When we feel better we eat better it’s that simple. Not to mention metabolic exercise reshapes your body without bulking and boosts metabolism which helps you lose weight and see results within the first week.

Intense exercise increases cortisol levels temporarily, but metabolic and lower intensity exercise seems to reduce them. University of California researchers say that metabolic exercise may blunt some of the negative effects of stress. Not to mention the increase in endorphins you feel that decrease appetite and increase a feeling of well-being. It's important to note that not all exercise is created equal. Metabolic exercise is the perfect combination of moves without overdoing it, which creates more stress in the body and higher cortisol levels.

Your morning meal sets the stage for the rest of your day, so start if off right. This step “offsets” calories you eat so if you're not so perfect you still lose weight—guaranteed.

Boost at breakfast by drinking a metabolic boosting whey protein shake. Whey is full of amino acids that nourish the body, improve mood and boost immunity, while providing lasting energy. Drinking a whey protein shake blocks cortisol to flip the hunger switch back to off.  Whey Protein boosts metabolism 25% and provides natural energy so you feel better fast. It provides the right nutrients your body needs to combat stress, which kills cravings for fast weight loss. Repeat this step for lunch as well.

You can expect to fall off your diet, so plan for it ahead of time. We are all human and that’s exactly why you drank the shake for breakfast. Most plans don’t allow for this and that's why they fail. It's not your fault but the plan that’s faulty.

What makes the metabolic boosting strategy so successful (by the way, everyone loses weight on this plan) is that you need your metabolism boosted and running at optimal speed, so when you cheat you don’t gain an ounce. This also makes room for the human things we do.

Here are a few examples of the “cheats” most people do that stop them from losing weight. Most of the time people will say: “I only ate a little”. Sadly that’s all it takes to stop weight loss.

    • Excess fats: nuts, avocados and cheese  
    • Excessive protein of the wrong kind: Chicken, salmon – more than 3 ounces  
    • Excessive carb intake: fruit, wraps, protein bars , drinks and smoothies

Metabolic Mistakes That Stop Weight Loss

When it comes to losing weight most of us focus on the big things, but it's the little things that usually keep us from losing weight. Those little things we all do that seem so unimportant that we don’t even write them in our journals.

What you don’t know can hurt your weight loss. In fact, it may even stop you from losing weight; especially if you're female, over 35 years old, diabetic, or have a thyroid condition (all apply). Don't shoot the messenger. I don't make the rules and I certainly still struggle with some of these myself. If you’re not losing weight, listen up, these are for you.

Here are the Top 5 Metabolic Mistakes I see on food journals every day that stop weight loss dead in its tracks:

Metabolic Mistake #1: You Think Juicing Is Good For You

While juicing does supply some nutrients your body doesn't know the difference between sugar that came from juicing or candy. It still elevates blood sugar levels which stop fat loss and slow weight loss.

Do this instead: Drink a Complete Whey Protein Shake. You’ll boost your metabolism 25%, block cortisol which helps melt belly fat, and you'll be providing your body with nutrients it needs to stay healthy, allowing you to lose 1 pound per day. Drinking a Complete Protein Shake is fast, easy and delicious. All you have to do is drink. Don't add fruit.

Metabolic Mistake #2: When It Comes To Weight Loss You Think All Snack Bars Are Created Equal

Not! In fact, snack bars that cost .50 cents are loaded with nothing but sugar. They are expensive cookies in my book. You know the drill when it comes to sugar and weight loss, the less sugar you eat the easier it is to lose weight.

Do this instead: Replace your current protein or snack bar with a Lean Bar and you'll boost your metabolism 25%. Lean Bars are made with the same high quality protein that the Complete Protein Shake is made with. You'll lose weight faster and melt belly fat. You’ll also be saving calories, carbs, and fat while adding 10 grams of fiber to your diet. That's always good for weight loss. LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar on the market that uses high quality protein. That’s what’s best for weight loss.

Metabolic Mistake #3: You Eat Too Much Chicken And Salmon

When it comes to weight loss not all proteins are created equal. Chicken and salmon both have more fat than you realize which adds calories and slows weight loss. It stops belly fat from melting off. We tend to forget to weigh and measure our proteins and this slows our weight loss. Always stick to 3 ounce servings.

Do this instead: Eat more white fish and less chicken and salmon. Remember, the lighter and whiter the fish the better for your metabolism and the faster and easier it will be for you to lose weight and melt belly fat. If your weight is stuck try eating more white fish and less chicken.

Metabolic Mistake #4: You Think Fruit Is Good For Weight Loss

Fruit does have some nutritional value but it also spikes blood sugar the same way juice does. Most of us don't know what a serving size of fruit is. If your weight loss is stuck and you have belly fat you want to melt off eat less fruit, or at least stick to a serving size, which is ½ a cup.

Do this instead: Swap your fruit for green veggies such as celery, or anything green for that matter, and you'll lose weight faster and feel fuller longer. Vegetables don’t cause blood sugar spikes the way fruit does so you'll feel fuller and eat less. Just make sure you're not dipping it into calorie loaded hummus or high calorie dip. Look for zero calorie dips or salad dressings instead if you’re trying to melt belly fat.

Metabolic Mistake #5: You think All Exercise Is Created Equal When It Comes To Losing Weight

While all exercise beats the couch, it's not all great for weight loss. Movement burns calories but exercises like zumba counts as cardiovascular exercise. Yoga which is great for stress relief and stretching and last but not least, Cross Fit, which can be too intense and not only stop weight loss but can cause weight gain unless you're under 30 and live stress free. All exercise is stress to your body but none of these are "the best" when it comes to losing weight and burning excess fat; especially around the hips, butt and thighs.

Do this instead: Metabolic boosting workouts are the very best when it comes to tightening, firming and reshaping your body. Unlike other forms of exercise, they are specifically geared for weight loss. You’ll see results within one week and they take only 30 minutes to complete. Just three metabolic boosting workouts a week and you’ll be boosting your metabolism making it easier for you to lose weight and melt fat. If you’re not seeing results stop what you're currently doing in the gym and try metabolic boosting workouts for 2 weeks. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your body and how fast you lose weight. Less time plus faster weight loss who doesn't want that?

For more information about these and other metabolic solutions please refer to my book, "The Metabolism Solution".

If you keep doing what you've always done you'll get what you've always got. Change requires you to change. So start now, YOUR SOMEDAY IS TODAY. DON'T WAIT ONE MORE SECOND!
