How To Survive The Holidays Without Gaining An Ounce
This time of year, food temptation seems to lurk around every corner, not to mention the stress of our over-busy schedules. Stress destroys our waistlines because it stops us from making healthier choices.
The biggest issue I face when it comes to helping people lose weight isn't teaching them what to eat. Most of us already know we need to avoid alcohol, too many rich desserts and that we should fill up on healthy foods like vegetables, drink lots of water and exercise daily to help us navigate through these tough times. The bigger issue is that it's not real physical hunger that causes us to reach for our favorite "bad" foods but rather head hunger or a sense of 'Victory Lap' entitlement eating (you lost weight and feel you deserve to eat whatever you want). Head hunger, moods and emotions (stress or feeling overwhelmed is the worst emotion but even happiness can do this) also impacts our choices and destroys months of hard work.
That's not even the worst news. Once we start eating recklessly we can't stop eating the wrong foods. But there's great news to counteract the bad news. For the past 25 years I have used these 5 proven Metabolic Boosting techniques that will help you navigate through the holidays without gaining an ounce!
I tell my client's to EXPECT to fall, as it's human nature and we just can't be 100% on when it comes to eating clean. Put these proven techniques into action so you're ready when you do fall, and since you won't gain weight using them, you won't need to punish yourself after by spending countless hours in the gym.
These techniques cause weight loss because they trick your body into burning more calories even when you're not working out. Who doesn't need to boost their metabolism? You can lose up to 1 pound per day safely following these tips. Stuck in a weight loss rut? These tips will help you burst through that weight loss plateau that's keeping you from achieving you goals.
Here are top 5 proven Metabolic Boosting techniques that cause weight loss. They are 100% effective if you do them right!
1. If you bite it, WRITE IT!
Write every single morsel down that you bite even if you only eat a little! Use the pad on your cell phone if need be so you're never without a place to write it down
.2. 12 hours of not eating is critical each day.
Timing is everything. Choose the 12 hours each day that you'll eat throughout the holiday season. This helps keep you on track because it curbs the reckless eating that takes place after legal eating hours. Waiting to eat our first meal in the morning helps to reboot our metabolism and helps us to burn fat versus store fat.
3. Skip your usual breakfast and boost metabolism instead by drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake that will feed the muscle but starve the fat and has shown to boost metabolism 25%.
THIS IS CRITICAL the day after "not so good" eating and if you're trying to lose weight. Go thick to get thin! Bulk up your shake with ice. British researchers found that people who sipped thicker protein shakes felt fuller than those who sipped thinner versions. Even the drinks that had the same calorie count! Simply add 5-6 ice cubes to your shake. Need LynFit Complete Protein Shake recipes? Go HERE for more!
4. Maximize your metabolism for maximum calorie and fat burning doing metabolic workouts.
Work out on an empty stomach and take (2) LynFit Cutting Edge fat burners before your workout to help burn the calories you ate last night. Contrary to what you might hear, when it comes to losing weight, working out on an empty stomach is the best way to burn fat UNLESS you're trying to bulk up.
What's a Metabolic Workout? If it doesn't say "Metabolic", it isn't!
5. Prevent weight gain by controlling and balancing blood sugar levels.
Taking LynFit Carb Edge will give you an edge over carbs because it contains an all-natural ingredient called Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract. Taking these 30 minutes before a meal will not only help you control hunger and cravings but it also literally paralyzes the enzymes that digest starch so carbs cannot be broken down into sugar and stored as fat. Taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge with Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract before your meal can block 65% of the unwanted carbs without gastric distress, according to a study published in Nutrition Business Journal.
The secret to "Not Gaining An Ounce This Holiday Season" is boosting your metabolism so your burn more calories, even at rest. That way you control your hunger and cravings so they don't get the best of you, and remember, perform 3 Metabolic Workouts per week!
The Dieter's Cheat Sheet For Faster Fat Loss
Can't seem to move forward toward your weight loss and fitness goals no matter how hard you try? For everything you "fix" something else seems to "pop up" to discourage you? Well, you're not alone.
As a part of my LeanerLifestyle Month I've put together a Cheat Sheet to help you through the 8 most common issues that will arise during your weight loss program.
While everyone is different there are some basic steps that can be taken by everyone to help them through their tough stretches. These 8 fixes will keep you moving forward toward your ultimate goals.
- Craving? Take (1) LynFit Carb Edge at lunch and (1) LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm to keep you feeling full while balancing your blood sugar.
- Can't lose that stubborn fat? Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge 30 minutes before you work out to force your body to burn fat.
- Dead metabolism over 40? Drink a LynFit Complete Protein Shake or eat a LynFit Lean Bar for breakfast (as your breakfast NOT with your breakfast) and again for lunch.
- Still hungry? Eat your veggies! You're supposed to eat 10 per day and if you're hungry you haven't eaten enough veggies. More than likely you didn't drink enough water either.
- Constipated? Bloated? Take (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse at 10am or before bedtime until you feel cleaned out.
- Can't sleep? Take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep rather than over-the-counter sleep aides. They slow down your metabolism.
- Sore and achy? Take LynFit Recovery Agent to help your body heal and relieve soreness naturally so you don't hurt your metabolism.
- Need a snack? Have a green apple or 1/2 of a LynFit Lean Bar with a cup of tea.
Keep this Cheat Sheet handy for those days when these symptoms raise their ugly heads. And remember, YOU ARE in control!

Caving to Carbs?
We live in a stressed out society and that's the #1 reason we crave exactly what we shouldn't eat! Food is the problem, NOT the solution! Try taking an exercise break instead, or a nap, until the cravings subside and you can make a sensible choice that you won't regret later.
The TOP two reasons we crave are:
1. Not Enough Protein
Make sure you have had your LynFit Complete Protein Shake. Missed it? Have it NOW! Cravings are a sign your body is missing something and I can assure you it's not chocolate or cookies! ALMOST all of us fall short when it comes to consuming enough protein. Did you know we need 1 gram per pound of lean body mass per day of LEAN protein (click HERE to read blog article)? Only LynFit Complete Protein Shake contains high grade whey that blocks cravings and cortisol - the hormone that's released when we are stressed that causes us to crave more and store fat and stops weight loss.
Are you so stressed you need to chew? Chew a LynFit Lean Bar! It's the only protein bar on the market specifically designed for weight loss because it contains the same high grade whey protein the LynFit Complete Protein Shake is made with!
2. We Need Water!
Many cravings aren't food cravings at all because we need to hydrate. Drink a tall glass of water or ice water, or try hot tea with lemon as it kills cravings! Sip as much as you need until it passes. Did you know that you're supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water EVERY DAY? So, if you weigh 120, you need at least 60 ounces of water a day and COFFEE DOESN'T COUNT! Try floating lemons or limes in a tall pitcher and leave it out so you're tempted to drink from it every time you pass by it.
That being said, we all have trained our bodies to tell us when to eat versus teaching them how to burn fat for fuel instead. Make sure you're following the Cutting Edge eating plan found in my Fitness and Nutrition Guide so that you can curb cravings before they begin and lose 1 pound a day!
Three things you can do to prevent cravings:
Smart supplements taken at specific times can create a feeling of fullness and turn your hunger switch off!
1. Have a Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar for breakfast because it boosts your metabolism 25%. It not only delivers THE VERY BEST source of protein for your body that helps you lose belly fat, but it also helps you lose weight right away while you're learning how to eat for weight loss. A study from the Pennington Bio-Medical Research Center in Louisiana found that people who eat Protein for breakfast are more likely to feel full during the day than those who eat cereal or other grains.
2. Take (1) Carb Edge at lunch to balance blood sugar. Balancing blood sugar is the secret to balancing cravings! LynFit's Carb Edge is loaded with different fat burning nutrients blended together that will keep your body in fat burning mode versus fat storing mode. The best part - it contains white kidney bean extract called Phase 2 that literally paralyzes the enzymes that digest starch. So carbs cannot be broken down into sugar. The Phase 2 kidney bean extract has been clinically shown to reduce starch digestion and promote weight loss. It works by temporarily binding with the enzyme that digests starch, preventing a portion of the carbohydrates from being broken down into sugar and stored as fat. One capsule taken before a "cheat" meal can block up to 65% of unwanted carbs from being absorbed without causing gastric distress, according to a study published in the Nutrition Business Journal.
3. Take Omega-3 at 3pm or 1 hour before cravings usually start. The good fat takes a while to digest, so taking it prior to the snack hour will shut off your hunger quickly!
The Anti-Stress-Flat ABS Solution
24 hours to a calmer, leaner you!
STRESS is the #1 cause for weight gain. When we are under stress we tend to eat what we want when we want, eat even when we are not hungry and that's the best way to gain weight.
Stress eaters are also emotional eaters and they consume twice as many sweet and high fat foods as the non-emotional eaters. One of the most important things to keep in mind when trying to reduce stress and stress eating is that FOOD IS NOT THE SOLUTION IT IS THE PROBLEM! When we eat under stressful conditions it impairs our digestion and almost always causes what we eat to be stored as fat!
The good news is that stress can BE GOOD for weight loss!
Most people think that stress causes fat to store around our stomachs and make us gain weight BUT... In fact the opposite is true! When we are under stress our bodies secrete a hormone called cortisol and cortisol is actually a very effective fat burning agent provided you aren't eating sugar!
Here are FIVE things you can do to STOP sugar cravings and decrease your stress!
1. JUST BREATHE! When we are stressed, we tend to hold our breath and that causes the fat storing hormones to rise and our stomachs to distend out and we want them flat!
Practice 4-7-8 breathing. Breathe in for 4 seconds. Hold for 7 seconds and breathe out for 8 seconds trying to slow down your breathing until you feel regulated and calm.
2. Still stressed? Regulate w/Oxytocin. I suggest 6 drops of Oxytocin under your tongue twice a day until you feel calm & relaxed for 2 weeks straight. Reducing your stress is the best thing you can do to fight aging! Need Oxytocin?
3. Whittle your waist with WHEY! Whey protein boosts our metabolism 25% and blocks cravings while keeping us feeling fuller longer. Don’t want a cold shake? Make Hot Chocolate. Need to crunch? Sprinkle it over popcorn! A little goes a long whey! LOL
*Look for a high quality Whey that has 25 grams of protein, no sugar and no fat. Be on the lookout for Whey shakes blended with inferior ingredients, they won’t work. HIGH QUALITY COUNTS when it comes to whey! Best source? LynFIT'S Complete protein!
4. Steer Clear of over strenuous workouts they are fattening! Workouts that decrease stress also help you lose MORE weight! Strenuous workouts ramp up cravings and our appetites and that’s never good for weight loss! Look for weight loss specific workouts. They should be weight lifting workouts that are 30-40 minutes in length (NOT LONGER) and they work the entire body in each session without resting! Need help? See LynFIT’s metabolic workout DVD!
5. Still stuck? This is where the right STACK of supplements can change everything. Supplementing can work miracles IF done correctly. Taking supplements that are a combination of fat burning agents always works better than taking single supplements because they are combined in the prefect combination and they will attack fat from every angle possible and are the most economical way to take supplements.
