Cleansing The Right Way!

In a panic after the holidays and just want to "clean up and start over" by doing a juice cleanse? I understand your sense of urgency but let's make sure that you get started the right way. While cleansing your system and "starting over" is a good thing, if you don't juice cleanse properly you may actually cause damage to an already slow metabolism, especially if you're over 40.

The good news is that not only is juicing for detoxing and weight loss one of the latest health trends, but when done properly, can help you lose a pound a day. It's important to remember that I'm talking about metabolic cleansing however. There's a big difference between a normal juice cleanse and my metabolic boosting cleanse!

The first thing most people do is to start dumping all kinds of fruit and veggies into a blender without any concern as to what those combinations might actually be doing to their bodies. In fact, if you're not careful, you end up spiking your blood sugar levels off the chart and that's the last thing you want to do when you're trying to lose fat.

So, can I really lose a pound a day with a metabolic cleanse? Absolutely! But only if your cleanse is done properly. Other cleanses don't contain enough nutrients to keep your metabolism running smoothly and you tend to lose muscle in the process because they don't provide enough protein and nutrients, slowing down your metabolism and causing your body to go into survival mode.

My metabolic boosting cleanse does the complete opposite. It provides the nutrients your body needs to keep your metabolism going and in turn, allows you to lose weight!

The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Difference:

  • Before you just start tossing assorted greens into your blender, you want to make sure you mix in some metabolic boosting whey, found in my Complete Protein Shakes. Whey is low calorie (155 calories or less). It is also low in carbs, sugar and fat. You'll absolutely love the taste that makes it easy to drink at least one every day. The Complete Protein Shakes come in 3 delicious flavors: French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry Banana Twist. There's no better tasting diet drink. And it boosts your metabolism by 25%!
  • Kick-start your day with my Daily Power Shot. The first thing I do every morning is take a LynFit Daily Power Shot. It contains every single nutrient that your body needs. If your body is missing even a single nutrient your metabolism starts to slow down. The Daily Power Shot's vitamins, minerals and antioxidants help your body reach optimum health and elevates energy levels, allowing you to maximize your weight loss.
  • Feeling hungry between meals? It's not the feeling hungry that's bad, it's what we do to try to satisfy that craving that hurts us. Too many of us instinctively reach for a sugary or carb filled snack when we start to feel hungry between meals. Rather than those "not so good" choices, I recommend sipping green tea while allowing your body the necessary time to process and burn off fat. If you really can't seem to get satisfied you can always enjoy another metabolic boosting Complete Protein Shake, or even a green apple.

Here's a Lisa tip: Take Omega-3 at 3! I make it a point to take my Pure Omega-3 at 3pm every day to blunt my cravings and keep my energy levels sustained. It makes it a lot easier to walk away from those temptations!

  • Fuel your metabolism with seafood for dinner. What you eat for dinner makes a big difference in your weight loss success. Seafood is high in iodine and will help fuel your metabolism. Add broccoli or leafy greens to your meal and you'll give your metabolism the kick-start it needs to keep burning fat throughout the night.

Here's a Lisa tip: While cleansing, before bed, I recommend taking a LynFit Fat Burning Raspberry Ketone Cleanse. It detoxifies your system, getting rid of fat loving toxins that slow your metabolism down.

  • Weight loss miracles really do happen when you sleep! Sleep is when your body regenerates and revitalizes itself. LynFit Lean Sleep with Melatonin will help your body and brain reboot so your body can burn fat even while you sleep. Drug-free, it is specifically designed for weight loss while allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new, metabolic boosting day!
You can get all the products listed above in one convenient Metabolic Boosting Cleanse Kit. No excuses, no delays, no putting off what you can start today!

Slimming Super Bowl Secrets

From Halloween through New Year's is what I refer to as "The Super Bowl of Overeating". Then of course comes the New Year's resolutions, which almost always include losing weight.....until Super Bowl Sunday rolls around and wreaks havoc on our weight loss goals, and our waistlines.

Here's the kicker.....Most people consume 3,500 calories piling up their plate on Super Bowl Sunday. That's more than most people should eat for two days! Not to spoil your game day, but consider this: If you eat one slice of cheese pizza, six chicken wings with dressing, a few handfuls of chips with dip, two beers (or wine) and a cookie, you could easily consume 2,000 calories during the game alone! Add more booze, which always means overheating, and calories can climb to 3,500 if you really pile up your plate. This can take you all day in the gym to work off.

What I find interesting is even people who don't watch the game find reason to over eat. 108.7 million people watched the Super Bowl last year and 200 million didn't watch TV, but still found reason to over eat anyway. If you're not careful the pounds you gain on Super Bowl Sunday can stay with you all year long.

This time I'm not going to tell you what not to eat. We all know how that turns out. Instead, I'm going to show you how to fix the damage, fast!

THE CHEATER'S DIET

What to do the day before and the morning after you cheat:

If you don't want to gain weight every time you have a cheat day you need a game plan. Planning for your "cheat day" can make the difference between gaining lots of weight or possibly losing weight. The secret to your weight loss success is all about managing your blood sugar levels. The most important thing to remember is whenever we cheat/over eat; it's always on carbohydrates and fats which slow our metabolisms. So in order to get back on track with weight loss we need to steer clear of these foods and focus on metabolic boosting proteins and lots of leafy greens in order to boost our metabolisms. Eating clean, lean foods is the best way to lower our blood sugar levels, which sets us up for fast weight loss.

Focus on eating lean, clean proteins like LynFit's high grade whey Protein Shakes, white fish and egg whites and load up on leafy green vegetables and salads.

Avoid eating carbohydrates, dairy and fruits as they will raise your blood sugar levels, slowing down your metabolism. This includes adding fruit and any kind of milk to your shakes; including soy or almond milks as they are full of sugar, even though they may say "No Sugar Added". That doesn't mean they are sugar free. That just means they didn't add any extra!

Why is boosting your metabolism so important the day before and after a cheat day?

Boosting your metabolism is the key because you'll burn more calories all day long even at rest and this is exactly what you need on cheat days in order to keep the extra calories from making a "permanent" home on your body.

You can't exercise away a bad diet but IF your perform Metabolic Boosting exercise you'll turn your body into a fat melting machine because you're burning more calories all day long.

Have no fear; the Morning After Diet (aka: The Cheater's Diet) will help you safely shed 1 pound every day until you're back at your goal weight. Remember, you're fixing bad eating days so you need to allow yourself to get hungry to clean your system out (See "Lose 7 Pound In 7 Days).

The Morning After

Step One: Drink your fat burner! Replace 1-2 meals per day to boost your metabolism before and after your cheat day to offset the previous day's calories. Replace your usual breakfast with a LynFit Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Shake made with high-grade whey to:
  • Boost your metabolism 25%
  • Block cortisol (the hormone that causes us to store fat around our mid-section and stop us from burning fat)
  • Lower blood sugar levels
  • Help keep you full while providing nourishment your body needs to stay healthy
But I gotta warn you, not all shakes are created equal. LynFit's Complete Protein Shake is specifically geared for metabolic boosting because of the high quality whey used. It's micro-filtered to remove all dairy. It's low carb and extremely low in sugar (unlike most commercially bought shakes), making it the perfect choice for game day or every day to help you lose weight and keep it off. Don't add fruit or milk or any extra calories in order to keep it metabolic boosting vs. just a health drink.

Step Two: Boost your metabolism with a Leaner Lifestyle Metabolic Boosting Workout 3 times a week for best results, especially before and after cheat days. While you can't exercise away a bad diet if you perform Metabolic Boosting exercise you'll turn your body into a fat melting machine in 30 minutes. You'll burn more calories all day long. Metabolic workouts are very specific and they work your whole body in 30 minutes using weights and the most effective calorie burning exercises that won't hurt you.

Unless you have six hours to spend in the gym I suggest you focus specifically on exercises that boost your metabolism without making you ravenous, which causes you to binge vs. high intensity exercise that can backfire on you (unless you're 20 something and live a stress free life) and not all exercise is created equal. If you're exercise doesn't say it's metabolic IT'S NOT!

Step Three: Control your slip ups with LynFit Carb Edge! This can be your best friend on cheat days. Here are three ingredients you won't want to miss on your cheat days, and all three are found in LynFit Carb Edge.

Banaba Leaf and Forskolin can help with cravings by balancing blood sugar and Forskolin helps rev up your metabolism. Take (1) in the morning and (1) mid-afternoon or before a cheat meal with a full glass of water.

White Kidney Bean Extract blocks 65% of unwanted carbs from being absorbed and helps balance blood sugar, but only Phase 2 has proven to do this. Be sure to look for Phase 2 on the label. Take (1) capsule 30 minutes before a cheat meal or as soon as you remember with a full glass of water.

Raspberry Ketone Cleanse with African Mango to burn fat and help detox your system. Clogged systems don't work properly and burn fat slower. Take 2-3 right before bed.

While detoxing, you can lose up to 5 pounds in 3 days!

Need some extra tips?
  • Allow yourself to get hungry and sip tea or hot water with lemon in between meals
  • Snack on a small green apple if needed to hold you over until dinner
  • Eat between the hours of 8am - 6pm only
  • Consume only lean proteins and green vegetables (you can make them into soup)
  • Exercise should be kept at a moderate intensity unless you're under 25 and live stress free
  • Aim to eat this way 2-3 days every week to offset the "not so good" eating days. You can safely eat this way 4-5 days a week if needed.

Stop Your Cravings Dead In Their Tracks


I don't know about you but I struggle with cravings, especially this time of year. We all start off with the best of intentions, promises and resolutions. But before you know it, those promises have already been broken, the good intentions have faded into the back of our minds, and our once so-promising resolutions have turned into disappointment. And, to let you in on a little Lisa Lynn secret..... I'm no different than you!

I always start my day with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake with a handful of salad greens added to it for substance and it keeps me feeling fuller longer. But sometimes at the end of the day my cravings can get the best of me, unless I remembered to.....
  • Take LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm to blunt cravings and to help keep my energy levels sustained (my Pure Omega-3 doesn't contain stimulants so it won't keep me up at night). If I don't hit that late afternoon energy slump I tend to eat better and can walk away from temptation easier.
  • BLOCK cravings and carbs with LynFit Carb Edge with Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract. This is a saving grace when it comes to curbing cravings and lowering blood sugar levels, which is the secret to losing weight and convincing your body to burn fat. Take (1) LynFit Carb Edge mid-morning and another after lunch and you'll breeze through the afternoon without the munchies and you'll lose weight easier.
If you plan on cheating, take LynFit Carb Edge right before your cheat meal to decrease the caloric impact of carbs. The B-Vitamins found in LynFit Carb Edge will help make you fight off seasonal affective disorder too!
  • Gotta munch? EAT more veggies! Sometimes we just need to crunch. Try roasting green beans in the oven for 10-15 minutes and sprinkle them with sea salt. You'll enjoy them just as much as the "not so good" food. It's one of my family's favorites and as long as I have them out on the counter when I'm cooking dinner they will grab and eat. The more veggies you eat, the more you'll lose.
Not eating enough veggies? Add them to your LynFit Complete Protein Shake. You need to eat 10 veggie servings daily. Vegetables are the only food we don't eat enough of!

Still need a little extra encouragement? Follow my Slimmer by Dinner Meal Plan and click on the video above to watch my interview with FOX-TV in Tampa, Fl. I go over the specifics that you will need to keep those resolutions you've made. And if you've already slipped a little, I'll give you the tools you'll need to get back on track fast!

Energize Your Weight Loss With Daily Power Shot

Does your weight loss need a 'power shot' to get the pounds to melt off again? There is an energy crisis going on in your body and it may be what's slowing down your weight loss.

We all want to feel alert, well rested, and full of energy, but for most of us this is not reality. We're all busy, over-scheduled and stressed. When you combine that with lack of sleep, which often leads to poor eating habits, it's no wonder we feel so drained and depressed. A daily dose of Daily Power Shot can fix all of that! I take Daily Power Shot the minute I wake up in order to feel good and energized so I can make it through my 15 hour grueling work days.

We all know that regular exercise and getting at least 7 hours of sleep, in addition to eating healthy, is the key to keeping our energy levels in check. But it's almost impossible to get every nutrient your body needs to maintain health without taking a daily multivitamin. Not to mention the additional strain weight loss, exercise and stress adds to our nutritional requirements.

Just living in the real world elevates our nutrient requirements, placing an even larger demand on our bodies, making supplementing a must in order to keep up with the demand or we become deficient. If we lack even minute amounts of essential nutrients it can not only sap our energy but can also slow our weight loss. We can also suffer with muscle pain, weakness, spasms, low thyroid, slow wound healing and hair loss.

But that's not all. When the body is lacking minerals, vitamins also have reduced effectiveness. While our body does produce some vitamins, it produces ZERO minerals, which makes supplementing a critical step when it comes to wellness and weight loss.

Minerals are necessary for 95% of the body's daily functions and are even more important when you're trying to lose weight or you're under a lot of stress. It's almost impossible to get what your body needs from your diet every day so this is one supplement you won't want to skip.


Did you know that over 50% of our population is deficient in magnesium? Magnesium is one of the most overlooked minerals and that's only one of the hundreds of minerals and vitamins you need every day to stay healthy and feel great. LynFit's all-natural Daily Power Shot has everything your body needs in exactly the amounts it needs to meet your daily recommended intakes. It is suspended in a liquid base of papaya that helps the nutrients be absorbed faster and more efficiently; not to mention, it's delicious! Daily Power Shot is a colloidal mineral, which is microscopic in size and being suspended in liquid form, so they are absorbed through the walls of the intestine and colon at a much greater rate than minerals in tablet form.

Daily Power Shot is the best way to take your multiple vitamins, minerals and enzymes every day! Power Shot is loaded with more than vitamins. It's also full of co-enzymes which are helper molecules or co-factors like COQ10 and essential fats like Omega-3 and 6. See the label for the complete nutritional profile.

Here are 3 of my favorite Supplement Superstars:

Safe Supplement Superstar #1: Magnesium

Magnesium is considered a miracle mineral and is an incredibly versatile and very important nutrient that all of us health experts agree on. It's one of the most important nutrients for human health. Why? Magnesium is a co-factor in more than 300 different chemical reactions in the body and one of them is maintaining your energy, not to mention it helps you relax and sustain the health of your heart and blood vessels.

Magnesium has also been known to help:

  • Keep your bones healthy
  • Keep blood thin naturally
  • Reverse high blood sugar levels
  • Synthesizing protein in the body
  • Regulate blood pressure
  • Detoxify the body
  • Alleviate anxiety and stress
  • Assist the body with carbohydrate metabolism

Safe Supplement Superstar #2: Cat's Claw

Cat's Claw is best known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-tumor, anti-carcinogenic and anti-mutagenic properties. But that's not all. Cat's Claw is used by practitioners of alternative medicine to help with:

  • Obesity
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Gout
  • Colitis and Leaky Gut
  • IBS
  • Crohn's disease
  • Gastric ulcers
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic pain
  • Herpes
  • Candida
  • Treating tumors and cysts
  • Cancer
  • Repairs DNA
  • Treat AIDS and HIV patients
  • Lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • Treat depression, anxiety
  • Allergies
  • Shingles
  • Diuretic

Safe Supplement Superstar #3: Biotin

Biotin is essential for your metabolic process. This vitamin processes nearly every type of food that you ingest, including carbohydrates, protein and fat. When biotin levels are at the proper levels in your body, the food that you take in will be processed quickly. Your doctor may even prescribe a biotin supplement if you suffer from metabolic issues, since it can help get your metabolism up to normal functioning levels quickly.

Why is supplementing with LynFit's Daily Power Shot so much better than a typical store bought supplement? Not only does Power Shot provide your body with everything it needs to boost your metabolism, stay full of energy and keep you healthy, but you can't buy a better multiple vitamin! Power Shot is a natural Liquid Colloidal form of vitamins, minerals and enzymes which is better than taking supplements in tablet form because most tablets that are purchased in stores don't have enough of the nutrients your body needs. Not to mention, when taking most store bought tablets your body only absorbs about 20-30% and the amount that is absorbed is struggling to get into your blood cells. When you begin taking Daily Power Shot you'll feel better right away so you know it's working!


The Daily Power Shot is so comprehensive why take over 90 different nutrients and spend all that money when you can shelf all other supplements and get healthier and save $$$ taking LynFit's Daily Power Shot!

Stay tuned for more information on my favorite supplements in the Daily Power Shot and for my soon-to-be-released book!




Boost Mood And Lose Belly Fat Fast

Everything we eat has an effect on our mood and either boosts metabolism or damages it. Here are 5 things that you can do right now to boost your mood and your metabolism. These techniques also help reverse damage caused by stress, unhealthy eating habits and a lack of metabolic boosting exercise.

By making a few simple adjustments to your diet you'll feel better fast and your pants will fit better as these tricks help melt abdominal fat while lifting your spirits. I know that when I feel better I eat better and the benefits can be huge, and fast!

  • Avoid Skipping Meals At All Cost
It causes your blood sugar to dip and sets us up for not only a bad mood but "lethal" cravings that can't be controlled. Maintain you blood sugar and you'll maintain your energy and avoid storing more fat in your mid-section.

Here's a great solution; never leave home without a LynFit Lean Bar! I'm addicted to them because they supply all of the nutrition our brains and bodies need, but the best part is how they taste. They are irresistibly delicious and hit the spot with a cup of green tea. LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar that can help you reduce belly fat because they are so clean.

  • Stay Hydrated
Being dehydrated can make you feel tired and cranky, not to mention it can slow your metabolism by 3%. I don't know about you but my metabolism is slow enough! Aim for 8 cups of water daily. Water can be enjoyable both hot and cold. I reach my water quota by drinking 4 cups of decaf green tea or warm water with lemon. You know what they say, "if you're not peeing every hour you're not drinking enough!"

  • Forget Moderation

Moderation doesn't work! Most of us struggle to moderate "trigger" foods (almost always carbs and sugar) and when we eat them it makes us crave them even more. Trying to moderately eat foods that trigger us to eat more almost always sends us into an eating binge that leaves us feeling worse than we did before we ate.

If you absolutely must eat, reach for foods like steamed vegetables and salmon, or make Hot Chocolate with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake and sit down and read a good book or watch something that will make you laugh. Whatever you do, food is the problem not the solution. The good news is the "crazy cravings" are like mini-panic/anxiety attacks and they never last more than 5 minutes. You can survive 5 minutes!

And, don't forget to take LynFit Carb Edge regularly if you struggle with extreme hunger and cravings. It not only helps with cravings, it also blocks the unwanted carbs from being broken down into sugar and stored as fat. I suggest taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge at 11am and another at 2pm to help you through the rough times.

  • Get A Boost From "Good Mood" Supplements

Certain nutrients can give you just the boost you need to get through those "tough" days. Nutrients such as amino acids (found in the LynFit Complete Protein Shake and LynFit Lean Bars) have been known to boost serotonin levels in the brain which contributes to feelings of optimism and calm.

Need more of a boost? Add B-Complex. Stress depletes our bodies of B-Vitamins creating a need for more. LynFit Cutting Edge, LynFit Carb Edge, and LynFit Accelerator with Raspberry Ketones all contain B-Complex that will not only boost your mood but also help your body burn calories while supplying you with natural energy, enhancing fat loss and curbing cravings (emotional cravings too).

Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge with a LynFit Complete Protein Shake for breakfast and (1) LynFit Carb Edge at 11am and 2pm.

  • Elevate Mood And Reduce Anxiety And Depression

This trick helps balance blood sugar so it's another way to kill cravings before they begin while helping me to melt off stubborn belly fat. I suggest taking (1) LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm and again before bed. Food won't get you the amount of DHA and EPA that's needed for results. Be sure to look for at least 500 DHA and 500 EPA for maximum results. LynFit's Pure Omega-3 contains the right amount of pharmaceutical-grade Omega-3 and is purified to remove impurities so you'll see results right away and you'll feel better fast.

Still in a funk? I get it! I struggle with depression and anxiety myself and these tips have saved me. But it's important to be consistent with your health and don't forget to add exercise. Boost your mood and metabolism even further with the LynFit Metabolic Booster Video! And as always, keep living LEAN!

Drop 7 Pounds In 7 Days With A Metabolic Boosting Cleanse

I don't know about you, but I crave a cleanse after I have eaten "off plan". I don't feel good when I'm not eating right or getting enough sleep. I feel tired all the time, my cravings run my life, and I feel fat and fluffy.

I know the solution is to detox my body from all of the damage that I caused it. But I should warn you, not all cleanses are good for weight loss. In fact, most of the cleanses you see advertised actually slow down your metabolism. Did you know that juicing slows your metabolism? Juicing is great for alkalizing your body because you consume your vegetables, but it also causes hikes in blood sugar that affect your weight loss and prevent you from burning fat.

The reason cleanses are so good for us is that they make us feel re-energized. Not to mention, they reboot our metabolism when done right. We also begin eating better so we feel better right away. But that's not all that cleanses are good for. Cleansing is the best way to improve your health and jump start our weight loss plan because they are alkalizing our bodies. If our bodies are too acidic we get sick often, feel tired all the time, and struggle with weight loss. Not to mention we can't lose that stubborn fat.

All of LynFit's plans are alkalizing so they not only boost your metabolism and cause you to lose weight, but they also create vibrant health. You'll not only look better, you'll feel the best you have felt in years and your aches and pains will even subside, so you'll want to exercise!

What makes our bodies too acidic? Eating too many sweets and processed foods, meats (including chicken) and not getting enough sleep or rest.

Cleansing facts that you need to know:

  • Our brains bathe and reboot when we sleep and if we don't sleep well enough or get enough zzz's our bodies can't reboot.
  • Juicing/Drinking juices (especially if they are pre-made vs. fresh) can slow down your metabolism. When we juice on mega doses of vegetables that are raw they can affect and slow your thyroid. Eat steamed vegetables instead that won't slow your thyroid.
  • Blending large amounts of vegetables, especially if you fruit can cause blood sugar levels to skyrocket and that's always counter-productive for losing weight and burning fat.
  • Not getting enough clean, lean protein while cleansing can cause your body to break down muscle tissue and that causes your metabolism to slow down. Clean, lean proteins such as LynFit Complete Protein Shake and white fish are the best and only sources you should rely on while cleansing.
  • Not eating to boost your metabolism slows down your metabolism. That doesn't mean you need to eat a lot, but you have to eat right.
  • Not cleansing long enough. A good cleanse should be followed for at least 21 days to break bad habits and create new good ones.
We eat from Thanksgiving to New Year's and go all out like there is no tomorrow and we think we can cleanse for 1 week to fix the damage - NOT! I suggest cleansing for 30 days following a Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and allowing yourself to go off 1-2 meals per week (after 7-10 days). Keep your cheat meal light, clean and simple so you don't wreck all of your hard work. Your digestive system needs to be treated with TLC for the best health results. I usually have a fish meal made with lemon and white wine and a salad with veggies, and then frozen yogurt for dessert as my cheat meal. That's enough to make me crave going back on my cleanse.


How do you cleanse your body to boost your metabolism? Follow a Metabolic Boosting Cleanse and add the following tips to maximize your results:

  • Take the LynFit Daily Power Shot first thing in the morning to bathe your body with vital nutrients that will provide the energy you need.
  • Perform the Metabolic Booster or Fat Blaster workout at 50% intensity and do the Recovery Stretch every other day. STOP all other activities except walking or indoor biking.
  • Drink you LynFit Complete Protein Shake or LynFit Lean Bar after your morning workout. Not working out in the morning? Start now! Even 15 minutes will make a difference.
  • Drink at least 4 cups of green tea daily or warm water with lemon, as well as lots of fresh water; instead of coffee.
  • Take LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm to keep cravings in check and bathe your body with good fats for optimal health.
  • Take the LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse every day at 5pm with your dinner. If constipated, use more to get your bowels working.
  • Take LynFit Lean Sleep 30 minutes before bed to enhance sleep. Sleep and rest are critical while cleansing. It's when our brains bathe themselves and our bodies restore themselves.
  • Don't eat in between meals. Let yourself get hungry and fill up with tea, hot water with lemon or fresh water. You're supposed to be drinking 8 glasses a day. Tea counts toward your water quota as long as it's black.
  • Eat steamed vegetables for dinner and every other night have white fish.

Cleansing is THE BEST way to jump-start your fat loss when you do it right. This is a great time to pick up some new habits that will change your life for the better. After all, cleansing is more than just detoxing the body. We should also be thinking about ways we can improve our lives, and our health! Recruit your mother, husband and kids and do it together as family. Even the pets can benefit!

Need some LynSpiration? Meditate daily, early in the morning or immediately after you exercise by lying flat on your back and focusing on your breathing, slowly exhaling out your stress (guys, this is especially important for you) and focus on anything that makes you smile.

Here's a bonus recipe for you to use during your cleanse; the Alkalinity Shake. Simply add the following ingredients to your blender while making your shake. Even if you hate vegetables you'll love this. You won't even know they're in there.

Directions: Wash and prep ingredients. Add to blender and blend away!
Serves 2 (that way you already have your lunch shake prepared)

(1) cup water or black coffee (coffee is loaded with antioxidants)
(4) scoops of your favorite flavor LynFit Complete Protein Shake (results are not guaranteed when using other shakes as they are loaded with inferior protein and sugar)
(1) large cucumber
(1) fistful of kale
(2-3) stalks of celery
(1) big broccoli stem
(1/2) peeled lemon

Scared you won't like the veggies in your shake? Start slow and try one new veggie each day. Most people love kale, cucumber and spinach because they are so mild tasting.

Get ready for the detox of your life. I'll warn you upfront - it's addicting!

How To Survive The Holidays Without Gaining An Ounce

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!

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.
  1. 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.

  2. Can't lose that stubborn fat? Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge 30 minutes before you work out to force your body to burn fat.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Constipated? Bloated? Take (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse at 10am or before bedtime until you feel cleaned out.

  6. Can't sleep? Take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep rather than over-the-counter sleep aides. They slow down your metabolism.

  7. Sore and achy? Take LynFit Recovery Agent to help your body heal and relieve soreness naturally so you don't hurt your metabolism.

  8. 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!
