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.

Merry Fitness And Healthy New Year!

LynFit Merry Fitness and Healthy New Year

All you need is love. Christmas is a time for giving and feeling love and warm, fuzzy feelings. What does love have to do with getting healthy and fit? Everything. Loving others and loving yourself is the #1 change that will transform everything in your life; especially impacting how you eat cleanly and take care of your entire body - inside and out - guaranteed.

Love is _________________. Can you answer that? Love is how you treat yourself and others. If you're not moving or exercising every day and eating nutritious foods you're not loving yourself. It all starts with you. The Bible says you've gotta walk the love walk every day and it starts by getting up early and moving. True confession - I'm not a morning person. This may shock some, but I love my bed and sleep more than anything. I do most of my exercising in the early hours of the morning. Doing so forces me to go to bed earlier and it makes me feel so much better that I wouldn't dream of starting my day any other way. At first exercising in the morning began as a concession to being very busy and scheduling around the constraints of my daily life. I quickly realized however that there are some incredibly helpful benefits to learning to love exercising in the morning.

Taking this first step is life changing. Here is how to start learning to love morning exercise, even if you're not a morning person. I have to warn you though: This may motivate you and negate every excuse in the book.

5 Reasons For Getting Up Early And Exercising:

  1. Early morning exercise jump starts your metabolism, keeping it elevated for hours; sometimes up to 24 hours. So you'll be burning more calories all day.
  2. Exercising in the morning gives you instant energy for the day; not to mention how awesome you'll feel. You'll also feel accomplished and disciplined. Those are highly gratifying feelings that produce more good behavior - habits that stick.
  3. Studies have shown that exercise significantly increases mental acuity. A benefit that lasts 4-10 hours after your workout ends. Exercising in the morning means you get to harness that brainpower instead of wasting it while you're snoozing.
  4. If you're an excuse maker, morning exercise needs to be top priority. It's not as hard as you think to get up 30-60 minutes earlier; especially since regular morning exercise generally means better sleep quality, which means you'll probably require less sleep while sleeping better. If getting up 30-60 minutes earlier each day seems too big, ease into it with 10-20 minutes at first.
  5. Exercising at the same time every morning, especially if you wake up regularly at about the same time, regulates your body's endocrine system and circadian rhythms. You're teaching your body that you do the same thing every day at the same time and your body quickly learns (you'll notice a habit forming the first week) to begin preparing you for waking and exercising a few hours before you even open your eyes. This is especially beneficial when it comes to weight loss and melting belly fat because:
    • Your body's not stressed by erratic, ever changing wake-up and sleep schedules which makes waking up early easier and less painful. Eventually you won't need an alarm clock. This will make you feel more energized and ready to exercise when you do wake up.
    • Hormones prepare your body for exercise by regulating blood pressure, heart rate, blood flow to muscles, etc., which help wake you up. Your metabolism and the hormones involved/required for exercise (especially metabolic exercise) begin to elevate while you're sleeping.

Just about everyone who has switched from random exercise times to early exercise agree that it helps regulate their appetite for the rest of the day. Not only do they crave less, they say it makes eating less easier to do. Why? Activity causes the release of endorphins which instantly makes us happier and diminishes appetite, unless you over-exercise. Early morning exercisers also claim they are able to choose healthier portions of healthier foods, and that's always a good thing. Early morning successful exercisers all agree exercise becomes something they actually crave and look forward to every day. This is the ultimate act of self-love because they have the satisfaction of taking care of themselves physically and for most of us busy moms, mentally as well. It's also a great time to plan and prepare for your day. For me, it's prayer time, which helps me think more clearly. Things most of us don't get to do if we choose to stay in bed.

Early morning exercise is the best, most successful way to fool-proof or ensure that other things don't derail your day before it even starts. It's the best way to ensure that you don't miss your exercise, especially if you're a busy mom with a hectic schedule.

I dare you to make a commitment to yourself for the next month and be the first to get up in your house. I promise that you'll never be sorry. WARNING: You're 90% more likely to skip your exercise if you don't do it first thing. It's too easy to wimp out in the evening when we're tired or faced with such tasks as rustling up dinner and helping with homework. You may need to step outside your comfort zone. I sure had to push myself and I'm glad I did. Love yourself by doing this.

Lisa Tip: Attention all you late night owls: You can fake it until you make it by tricking yourself in the morning. Drink a huge glass of water and take a LynFit Lean Sleep before you head to bed. You'll fall asleep faster and you'll have to get up to pee! Then, don't allow yourself to go back to bed. You'll feel worse and you'll most likely still be so groggy that you won't even notice what's happening until you've finished exercising. And guess what you've done? You've discovered the best way to work out for weight loss!

Could Those 2 Glasses Of Wine Be Affecting My Weight Loss?

Could Those 2 Glasses of Wine Be Affecting My Weight Loss?In short - yes those 2 glasses of wine could be stopping your weight loss dead in its tracks; especially if you're a female and over 40. If it's a slimmer waistline you're after it's either wine or your waistline. And with us now being in the middle of the holiday season there's not even an excuse needed to drink it. It's almost as if it's expected of you at the various holiday parties.

But it's not just the holiday parties that impact us when it comes to alcohol consumption. I meet so many people all throughout the year who defend their nightly glass of Merlot and refuse to take it out of their diet all the while ranting about how they just can't lose those last pounds or get rid of that spare tire around their middle. They argue that wine has nutritional value and contains minerals and antioxidants. So do vegetables - and a lot more of them. 

Wine is a big factor when it comes to belly fat. Why is that? Because wine has almost double the amount of carbs as sugars. Wine is a glass full of liquid calories that goes straight to your waistline. A single glass of wine can contain from 9 to 19 grams of carbs per serving. Flavored wines can have even more. And who follows those serving sizes anyway when pouring a glass. In fact, do you even know what the serving size is? 

In some cases a slightly sweet and low-alcohol wine may have fewer calories than a dry, high-alcohol wine. But you'd be hard pressed to know for sure since wine doesn't come with nutritional labels. For that matter, neither do other alcohol products. No calorie counts, no grams of carbohydrates, not even serving size suggestions. Guess why - because wine and liquors are not considered part of a daily diet. They are not required to by law. Perhaps labels should be required. Oh you can dig around the internet to find some calorie and "nutritional" information, but wouldn't it be much easier if it were right there on the bottle?

When it comes to a glass of wine, which is a 6 ounce serving, calories can range anywhere from just over 100 (for a sweet, low alcohol wine) to almost 300 for a sweet dessert wine. Popular types like Merlot and Chardonnay tend to fall in the 150-200 calorie range per glass. So I have to ask you: When it comes to your daily calories, would you rather eat a salad loaded with vegetables that will fill you up or have a glass of wine that will leave you hungry? 

It's simple. We all cheat at times. We just have to decide what we're going to cheat with when we do. If it's with that glass of wine, then stay away from the bread and the dessert. And above all else, make sure you take your LynFit Carb Edge!

Wishing everyone a Merry Fitness and a Healthy New Year!

Shop 'Til You Drop The Pounds

'Tis the season, and if you're like me and I'm guessing you are, that means countless things to do; which includes lots and lots of shopping intervals. All that shopping means that sometimes the exercise goes by the wayside. Not to worry - we're going to "fun out" your workouts so you'll want to do them, not "have" to do them so you can shop 'til you drop those pounds.

What if I told you that shopping can help you lose just as much weight as going to a boring gym? Yep, it's true. Remember, food is 90% of your weight loss success so as long as you're busy and eating clean you'll still lose weight. In fact, shopping may help distract you from eating as long as you don't make deals with yourself as to why you should and could eat more, and stay away from the food court at the mall. If you do that you'll overpay with poor choices and anything you get at the mall isn't going to be good for your weight loss.

There are a few simple tricks that anyone can do that will help them get in shape fast and lose 1 pound per day. Better yet, these simple tricks don't require you to join a gym. Your body is always burning calories, even at rest. Even sleeping burns calories. So what if I told you that you can drop 1 pound per day while doing your favorite thing - shopping? Here is the "Shop 'Til You Drop The Pounds" plan you've been waiting for your whole life, and it's the only one of its kind.

*NOTE: Please refer to the video above for examples of the moves described below

ACTION STEP #1: Reshape, Tighten and Tone Your Upper Body (1:07 in the video above)

Push yourself out the door doing door jamb pushups. Door jamb pushups help to strengthen your upper body and keep your arms tight and toned for the holiday sleeveless dresses. Door jamb pushups also help correct a slumped-over posture. Perform (1) giant set of as many reps as you can, using good form.

ACTION STEP #2: Core Walk in the Mall Holding Your Bags in the ½-way Position (1:55 in the video above)

Core walking builds endurance and strengthens your cardiovascular system. If you hold your shopping bags at the ½-way mark you'll also be tightening and toning your arms. Core walking/Mall walking at a brisk pace of 3.5mph can burn as many calories as a light jog. Wear sneakers shopping, park far away and walk around the mall before it opens for 30-45 minutes and you'll burn calories while beating the crowds. 

Fit Tip: Wear a pedometer to log steps taken. Aim for 10 thousand steps every day and if needed, get on the treadmill to guarantee it.

ACTION STEP #3: Standing Rear and Side Kicks to Tighten Your Butt and Strengthen Your Core While Boosting Your Calorie Burn (3:25 in the video above)

Standing rear and side kicks tighten your butt and build core strength while helping to develop balance. These moves are great for people with bad knees or hips and can also be done standing at the stove. Boost calorie burn when you're standing in line. Long lines equal more time so do a few extra. Aim to do a set of 25 at each store.

ACTION STEP #4: The Pay at the Register Toe Raise (4:15 in the video above)

These moves tighten and tone legs and if you keep your core tight you'll get great ab benefits as well which protects your back. Toe raises are a great stretch too. Aim to do a set of 25 at each store.

ACTION STEP #5: Eat Thermogenically to Force Fat Loss (4:40 in the video above)

Losing weight is 90% diet and only 10% of your weight loss results come from exercise. Eating on the run doesn't have to be a diet disaster, although if you don't plan ahead it almost always is. If you're serious about losing weight, or at least not gaining weight, you need a solid "go low" plan before you step foot outside of your house. Have a thermogenic Protein Shake before you leave and set your phone alarm for 3 hours so you don't skip meals. Bring a "lean and low" protein bar with you in your purse and a bottle of water so you're not tempted to go near the food court where the smells of the food can take you over.

What's "low and lean"? Low carb, low fat, but high in clean protein. Most protein bars are nothing more than expensive cookies and most aren't even that healthy. Look for at least 15 grams of protein and carbs should be less than 20 grams, while containing little to no sugar. Check the label on your protein bar before leaving or grab a LynFit Lean Bar if you're serious about losing weight.

LynFit Butt Bonus: Lunge your way to a tighter tush. Do walking lunges on your way out the door of when no one is looking. Better yet, lunge down the long mall hallways before it opens.

Have a Merry Fitness and a Healthy New Year!

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?

The 5 "Myth"Conceptions Of Weight Loss

Not losing weight no matter how hard you try? It could be that it's not even your fault. Why? Because most of what we are taught about weight loss is all wrong - nothing but lies and myths that stop us from losing weight and lead us to nothing but discouragement - "Myth"Conceptions. Learning the truth about weight loss may be just what you need to start losing weight today.

When you hear something enough, you actually start to believe it. Even if there is a voice inside your head that says otherwise. The biggest tip-off is that you're not losing weight despite the countless hours you're spending killing yourself in the gym. I lost weight immediately (40 pounds) and you can too once these secrets to boost your metabolism are learned. I had to forget everything I had learned previously and begin to do things differently. Guess what happened? I lost one pound every day until I hit my target weight for my body. And you can too!

With the holidays here it's even more important that we understand what these myths are and why we shouldn't believe them.


#1: Rapid Weight Loss Is Bad - WRONG!

Rapid weight loss (rapid results) is always the best way to get people to stick to the program. That doesn't mean you should starve yourself or go on a crash diet however. Those cause nutritional deficiencies that make us cranky. "The Metabolism Solution" teaches which proteins are best for weight loss as well as the exact amount your body needs to stay healthy, and lose weight. It also shows you the specific vegetables that are thermogenic, causing the body to go into metabolic boosting mode, burning more calories - even while sleeping.

You'll not only lose weight fast, you'll be healthier. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels will decrease quickly and if you suffer from aches and pains you'll feel better fast. This "New Way to Lose Weight" isn't just good for weight loss; it's also the healthiest way to live.

#2: Government Serving Sizes Are Accurate - WRONG!

Anyone can figure out that a 6ft male needs more calories that a 5ft female, so why are we told to eat the same amount? Turns out that serving sizes are universal and that is causing us to gain weight - fast. If you're not losing weight you're eating too much. It's that simple. Try eating ½ of what you usually eat and you'll see the scale drop fast. This is proof that fast weight loss is actually a good thing. It's sold evidence that you're doing things right. Bottom line - when we eat the right amount we lose quickly. When we are off-track or eating the wrong things we don't lose weight.

#3: More Exercise Means More Weight Loss - WRONG!

Just like you can overdo it by eating too much, you can also go overboard with exercise. In fact, too much of the wrong kind of exercise can stop weight loss dead in its tracks. The physical stress it inflicts on our bodies cause our cortisol (aka, fat storing hormone) levels to rise, making that stubborn muffin top even harder to lose.

90% of weight loss is based on diet and exercise makes up the last 10%. That being said, you cannot exercise away a bad diet. No bargaining. Just because you exercised doesn't mean you get to eat more (unless you're a male under 2 years old). When your diet is dialed in you don't have to live in the gym.

#4: High Fat, Low Carb Is Good For Weight Loss - WRONG!

You're not walking around with hairy palms so stop following those "Cave Man" diets. If you are, I'd bet you're gaining weight instead of losing it. To make matters worse, your cholesterol level is probably rising higher that the national deficit!

While you do need fat in your diet, the kind you consume can make or break your weight loss. Some fats burn easier as fuel compared to others. Bad fats, like trans fats, raise cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease. Not to mention, they make your pants too tight! The saturated fats found in red meat, butter, cheese and peanut butter won't help you lose that muffin top. But a good fat, like Omega 3 found in salmon, will.

The best way to take Omega 3 is through supplementation. I always suggest supplements when you're trying to boost your metabolism because you get a metered dose versus a guesstimation. You need to ensure your body gets exactly the amount it needs - no more, no less - in order to burn off body fat. Omega 3's are also great for pain, inflammation and even easing depression.

#5: All Supplements Are Created Equal - WRONG!

This is the perfect example of "you get what you pay for". You can't supplement away a bad diet but supplements can help you lose weight faster and easier when you combine them with a thermogenic diet and metabolic exercise. I always tell my clients, "if you don't see results in the first 2 weeks - stop! You most likely won't ever". When you take a quality supplement that's blended and contains the exact amounts your body needs you'll see and feel the results right away. Especially if you're eating correctly and performing metabolic workouts.

Most inexpensive supplements are inexpensive because they don't have the amounts needed of the active ingredients to provide maximum results. Always buy from a reputable source and know what you're looking for. Or, buy from someone who has already done that for you. I blend all of my supplements so you don't have to pay a supplement scientist. When you buy cheap it's always "buyer beware". Quality is, and will always be, paramount!

The Gratitude Challenge For Lasting Transformational Change

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LynFit's 21 Day Gratitude Challenge

  1. Go to bed 1 hour earlier (turn off all lighted technology). Can't sleep? Take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep.
  2. Say it out loud: "I can do this!" - Fake it until you make it. No if's, and's or but's.
  3. No alcohol all weekend. Zero. It feeds belly fat.
  4. Don't cheat this weekend. Stick to the plan.
  5. Worry about nothing, pray about everything, and pray before each meal. It will slow you down.
  6. Do the metabolic workout and walk for 60 minutes (both on the same day).
  7. Drink more water all day long and if you're already doing that - drink more.
  8. Say only positive messages all day, versus the negative ones you've been saying......."I love my legs", no matter what size they are.
  9. Drink a Protein Shake for breakfast and lunch. Go vegetarian for dinner.
  10. Exhale. Focus on your breath today. Improper breathing, holding your breath, creates big bellies. Exhale.
  11. Eat earlier tonight. Aim to eat 3-4 hours prior to bedtime.
  12. Have a LynFit Lean Bar as your lunch today versus your usual cheat food.
  13. Swap out overused over-the-counter meds (unless prescribed by a physician) that slow your metabolism and use LynFit Recovery Agent instead. 
  14. Swap out the fattening fats for LynFit Pure Omega-3, the essential fat that helps you burn fat.
  15. Pay attention to portions. Don't know what they are? See "The Metabolism Solution".
  16. Don't eat between meals. Nothing - not even veggies.
  17. Walk 10,000 steps or 60 minutes. Keep this up every day after today as well.
  18. Fight back against cravings today by taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge and (1) LynFit Pure Omega-3, 30 minutes before meals.
  19. Stop negative thoughts and talk by saying nice things to yourself all day. Example: "I love myself therefore I will take care of my body".
  20. Be a blessing to 10 people today by telling them something you think is awesome about them. You get back what you put in.
  21. Eat thermogenic carbs like vegetables instead of starchy carbs that slow metabolism, like oatmeal, bread, rice, pasta and crackers. 

Congratulations, you did it! Bless yourself by repeating these healthy behaviors as your normal lifestyle.

According to your Faith will it be done to you. - Matthew 9:29
