What Is The Secret To Preventing Weight Gain?
So you wanna know the secret to losing weight and preventing weight gain? Psst... it's controlling your blood sugar levels (including a1c levels)!
In a perfect world we would never go off our diets, but in the real world, perfection doesn’t exist. I am one of the biggest foodies you’ll ever meet, and that’s exactly how I became 40 pounds overweight and really struggled when I tried to stop eating the foods I craved. Thankfully, I learned these metabolic boosting methods, and I’ve been able to keep those 40 pounds off.
The thing I love the most about drinking two LynFit Metabolic Boosting Protein Shakes every day (besides the fact that it boosts my metabolism) is that it provides a little margin for the foods I crave, within reason. And thanks to the amino acid profile of the Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Shake, combined with the natural botanical extracts in the LynFit Accelerator Advanced, my body is nourished and my blood sugar levels are balanced, so I have more control over my sweet tooth. This helps me from going so overboard that I gain weight.
If I do eat something that’s filled with carbs and fats I feel more at ease because I know the white kidney bean extract will block the carbs and fats from being absorbed without any gastric distress. I won’t have to punish myself in the gym the next day (yes, I used to do that too).
I thought I’d share the secrets to “upzigging “ your calories without gaining weight. In fact, you might even bust through your weight loss plateau and lose a few pounds. But you do need a strategy in place first. You can’t expect to just eat as much as you want, or whatever you want, then pop a few supplements and lose weight. Today, I’m going to focus on the most important thing you need to focus on when you're trying to lose weight, especially when you go off-plan. I refer to this as upzigging or refeeding because it doesn’t sound so bad and impose as much guilt.
Balancing blood sugar levels can prevent weight gain, and if you're diligent enough and consistent doing these things, you’ll lose weight no matter how old you are or how stubborn your metabolism may be.
The Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan is a specialized eating plan that includes the smart use of safe supplements, helping to lower blood sugar levels, which turns on your weight loss switch and turns off the weight gain switch. This is the best plan for diabetics, pre-diabetics, and anyone who is over 35 years-old. It is a low-low approach, making it ten times more effective than the trendy Keto® and Paleo®-style diets.
What makes it different? It’s healthier because it’s low-carb and low-fat, so you don’t harm your body by clogging your arteries and increasing inflammation. This plan provides the best of both worlds, in the healthiest way possible. While it does have some of the same attributes of Paleo® and Keto®, it does not advocate eating foods like bacon and cheese or red meat. They are not good for weight loss, especially if you're a female over 35 years-old. It is low in bad carbs but promotes fibrous carbs like leafy green lettuce and others found in the Metabolic Boosting Meal Plan. They are super foods that are healthier for our bodies. And because they are thermogenic, they stimulate your metabolism and promotes fat burning.
Bottom line... if you're serious about losing weight and keeping it off, you need a plan that allows room for life’s little cheats. But before you go and start overeating, remember this: A clinical upzig is 100 calories, so keep yourself in line and balance your blood sugar first. Balancing blood sugar does more than protect against weight gain; it also protects your organs from the ravages of high blood sugar. Keep in mind that your body doesn't know that it’s a holiday or Super Bowl party, so be good to your body, it’s the only one you’ll ever have!
When it comes to losing weight and preventing weight gain, blood sugar is critical, especially when food is eaten unexpectedly (think Super Bowl party), which is why you should take your supplements regularly. The faster you gain control over your weight by balancing your blood sugar, the better for your waistline and weight. One of the best ways to do this is to prevent the spikes before they begin. Here are the best ways to do that.
PRIORITIZE PROTEIN INTAKE
Buffer blood sugar spikes with lean protein. The easiest way to do that is to drink a Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Shake. The shake also creates margin (it acts like an expense account) by lowering blood sugar levels ahead of time.
This is the best solution to lasting weight loss because it powers your metabolism and buffers insulin spikes. Unlike other types of protein, the Complete Egg White Protein boosts metabolism 25 percent and blocks cortisol levels, helping prevent fat from being stored around your waist.
Why Egg White versus Whey Protein? Egg White Protein has the least amount of carbs and lowest calories, helping to create that margin we talked about, so you can splurge a little. The LynFit Egg White Protein Powder is better for your metabolism than real eggs because it also decreases saturated fats. It is also digested and absorbed better, making it your best choice when trying to lose weight and melt off stubborn belly fat.
Timing is everything. Have protein 30-60 minutes before overeating (this is why planning your eating is critical). If you miss that window, do it as soon as you remember. Having a protein shake 30-60 minutes before you upzig balances blood sugar best and blunts hunger so you won’t overeat.
If you don’t already, start drinking two Metabolic Boosting Shakes daily (one Whey and one Egg White) the day before, the day of, and again the day after a big eating event. This not only helps create margin, but it also buffers and balances blood sugar spikes.
Optimize fiber intake by adding some VitaFiber to your shake or tea.
Decrease all carbs (juicing, fruit, oatmeal, bread, pasta, chips, etc.) except fibrous carbs. These foods contain mostly water and help keep us feeling full, so you’ll have more control over what you eat, and eat less.
YOU'VE BOOSTED, NOW IT'S TIME TO BLOCK
Block carbs and fats from being stored. Prevention is always the best cure. Take extra LynFit Accelerator Advanced 30-60 minutes before high carb and fat cheat meals. Accelerator Advanced contains all the best ingredients that help control blood sugar levels, which helps kill cravings, blunt hunger signals, and most importantly, buffer and blunt blood sugar levels. These prevent the damage caused by high blood sugar levels such as:
- Weight gain
- Uncontrollable hunger and cravings
It’s a good idea to add an additional capsule of Accelerator Advanced the same way you would increase your blood sugar medications before a large meal for extra protection. I require a one-two punch, so I also take (2) two LynFit Cutting Edge for a mood boost and to help make sure the fats I eat are shuttled into the mitochondria, to be burned off versus stored. This also helps lower cholesterol levels, so it’s an added advantage for your heart. The day before an upzig meal, the day of, and the morning after are the most critical times, so be consistent for the best results.
Continue to fast every night for at least 12 hours. Stop eating at 7 p.m. and don’t start again until at least 7 a.m.
Exercise on empty. While you can’t exercise away a bad diet, it certainly helps make you feel better, and when you feel better, you eat better.
Be sure to take your fat burning supplements in advance to prevent blood sugar spikes, block the formation of new fat cells, and prevent fat from being absorbed and reabsorbed after your workout. Taking (3-5) LynFit Cutting Edge daily will also help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels which protects the heart and reduces heart disease.
A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP
Of course, a good night's sleep before is critical. It helps lower cortisol levels that make blood sugar levels get out of whack. But don’t use sleep aids. They can slow your metabolism and cause blood sugar spikes. Go for natural sleep aid like LynFit Lean Sleep. It’s also better for your health and helps burn belly fat and boost immunity.
I really feel everyone should be taking omega 3 fatty acids to help protect their body from the damaging effects of blood sugar and excess saturated fats that cause inflammation. It’s more effective than over-the-counter pain relievers and won’t cause blood sugar spikes. LynFit Pure Omega 3 is purified and does not contain saturated fats or toxins that might also spike blood sugar levels. Other omega 3 supplements won’t do the same things because they often contain omega 6 fats. They are already abundant in our diets, especially if following any type of Paleo® or Keto® diets. Buyer beware and make sure to protect yourself with omega 3.
