We Need 1 Gram of Protein per Day

Did you know that our bodies need 1 gram of Protein per pound of Lean body mass every day? That means if your goal weight is 120, you only need 120 grams of protein so you feed the lean muscle tissue and starve the fat so it leaves!  Without drinking a high quality protein shake (made with water and ice), weight loss is virtually impossible as the proteins we normally eat are where all of the fat comes from in our diets, not to mention, it’s saturated fat versus good fat.  This is where most weight loss programs fail and we quit and give up.  Eating too much fat stops fat loss so remember to consume NO MORE THAN 20 grams of fat per day

Drinking a  shake or eating a Lean bar removes this problem and nourishes the body with the lean protein it needs without all of the fat, carbs and sugar other sources contain.  There's a catch..............In order for protein to fuel your metabolism and not add to fat storage, it needs to be clean, pure and COMPLETE! Complete Protein means that it contains all of the essential amino acids it needs to be a Complete Protein. You see, protein is made up of amino acids so, if it’s a good quality, it has all of them in exactly the right amount your body needs! No more, no less!   

IF you run out of shake and have to buy another brand, look for the following; 150 calories, 1 gram of fat, 3 grams of sugar or less.  Make sure they are soy, dairy and gluten free and use 80% grade whey.  Always stay away from pre-made (canned) shakes.

The reason you’ll never see my shakes and lean bars sold anywhere else except LYNFIT.com , is so I can keep my eye on the quality at all times!  As always, LynFit’s whey is soy free and always gluten free and is safe for all dairy sensitive people.

LynFit’s Complete protein is made from 80% pure whey which is THE highest grade whey you can buy, not to mention it tastes irresistibly delicious!  Quality is crucial as this is what determines whether you lose weight or not.  LynFit’s whey has been micro filtered, removing ALL traces of fat and lactose which is why my shake is good for weight loss.  Micro filtering is an expensive process that removes the unwanted ingredients and leaves the nutrients intact so it still contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs to boost your metabolism 25%!    Did you know that ONLY Complete Protein will

  • Boost your metabolism 25%
  • Kill cravings
  • Block cortisol (the stress hormone that causes fat to be stored around our belly hips and thighs and raises blood sugar and depresses our immune system!
  • Satisfy sweet cravings
  • Boost immunity
  • Boost your mood

Not all protein shakes and bars are created equal!  When it comes to Complete Protein they are not even close!  The bad news is that if you’re buying your whey from your local pharmacy or warehouse store, you’re buying the ingredients that have been removed from the higher quality whey's like LynFit’s Complete Protein. If your weight is stuck using a brand other than LynFit and you haven’t lost weight in 2 weeks, it usually isn't a high quality source and it’s loaded with fillers and inferior proteins like soy, pea, and dairy sources that don't work when it comes to losing weight and this may be why your weight loss has stopped!  Do your homework and compare ingredients in other protein shakes to LynFit Complete Protein Shake to see what I’m talking about.

I use the same high quality whey found in my Complete Protein shake in my lean bars to guarantee your weight loss success!  If the quality is not high enough, it won’t nourish your body the way it’s supposed to and you won’t lose weight! 

The second catch that no one talks about is that our bodies can only digest 25 grams of protein at a sitting (think of it as a 25 gallon gas tank…you can’t stuff 30 gallons in or it spills out of the tank! That's what excess body fat is........extra fuel our bodies couldn't use!  So, getting the right amount (of the right kind of protein) is the secret to fast, lasting AND healthy weight loss! 

How do you know?  You can tell by the results you see in the mirror as well as how you feel.  With LynFit Complete Protein Shakes and Lean Bars, there is nothing but the highest quality and YUMMY flavor ! 

Drinking a shake is THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN THE WEIGHT LOSS PROCESS!  If you want to lose 1 pound a day, follow the Cutting Edge Eating meal plan found in my Fitness and Nutrition Guide and be sure you’re using LynFit’s Complete Protein shakes or Lean Bars!

Here are 5 top ways to use your shake!

  • Replace your daily sugar loaded milks (this includes soy and almond milks) and pour some Vanilla Protein shake into your coffee.  You’ll lose weight faster and it’s one less product you need to buy!
  • Stick your shake in the freezer for 15 minutes and enjoy a frozen drink.  You’ll save calories and moneyPour some Vanilla Protein shake (mixed with water) over ½ cup of blueberries for Berries and Cream
  • Pour some Vanilla protein shake (mixed with water) over 1/2 cup of bluberries for Berries and Cream
  • Turn to a shake at night instead of eating junk food and watch the pounds come off
  • My personal favorite is to blend my shake using French Vanilla coffee for an irresistible and delicious treat!

The Lean Sleep Secret

If your metabolism is DEAD, you’re storing fat around your mid-section and live in a chronic state of exhaustion; lack of sleep may be your problem!  I have battled with my weight and depression my whole life and that caused my cravings for sugar and carbs to spiral out of control.   I have learned that I NEED my sleep.  In fact, I revolve my life around going to bed on time because I feel that much better when I wake up.  The problem is that I can’t always sleep or I fall asleep but wake up a lot during the night.  I began taking over the counter sleep aids but that only made me feel worse.  I began waking up feeling groggy, bloated and felt like I was gaining weight by the day. I decided to go to the health food store to buy something all natural. Little did I know that just because it's 100% natural does not mean it won’t slow my metabolism down.  I have one of THE slowest metabolisms and I didn't want to make it any slower!  

This is part of my story and why I study metabolic syndrome aka; dead metabolisms for at least 1 hour every day and decided to create my own line of supplements that were high quality, clean & pure so they enhance your metabolism versus slow it down the way most commercially bought supplements and over the counter medications can.

There are so many different things we do daily that slow our already sluggish metabolisms.  Supplements & medications are some of the worst offenders!  Sleep aids, anti-anxiety medications and anything that SLOWS down our bodies processes will slow down our metabolism!  DON'T STOP taking them if you are under the care of your doctor BUT begin trying to ween off them by adopting a healthier lifestyle.  In the meantime, you can ease your symptoms with a better alternative that boosts your metabolism and improves your health!

Take a curious look into your medicine cabinet and look for the words "ANTI" .  Any time you see the word "ANTI", you’re most likely slowing down your metabolism!

Here is the secret about sleep that no one talks about yet is at the core of your cravings.  Here is why not sleeping makes us store fat especially around our stomachs hips and thighs not to mention.........

  • Crave sugar and carbs to pick us up/energize us
  • Raise blood sugar levels
  • Are tired/lack energy to workout
  • Depressed
  • Anxious
  • Achy/arthritic
  • Causes hormone imbalances
  • Lowers your immune response - GET SICK easily

Anxiety caused by fatigue is THE top REASON WE CAN’T CONTROL what we eat.  The best way to deal with chronic over eating, cravings and BELLY fat is to improve your sleep!   Improving my sleep has made a huge difference for me.  I wake up feeling better so I want to exercise!

Did you know that it's when we sleep that all of the magic occurs for weight loss?  During the deep sleep our systems heal & repair, blood sugar levels decline and our systems reset & reboot themselves. Most people think this happens in the gym, but it’s when we sleep deeply that our bodies perform these miracles.   Prioritize your sleep the way you prioritize your workouts (you are doing that right?) 

How do you know if you’re sleeping enough to affect your metabolism? Seven hours of sleep is best for your metabolism and it’s better if you sleep deeply for your system to be prompted to reboot.

Here's what the earth-shattering new research has revealed, and why lack of sleep could be stalling your ability to lose weight and keep it off:

  • We are more likely to experience major weight gain (defined as 11 pounds or more)
  • We are more likely to struggle with depression and anxiety
  • When we sleep less, we burn less -  General energy expenditure was 5 percent less than it is when you get a good night's sleep, and after our meals we burn 20 percent less calories. 

 Imagine how much weight you’ll gain if you over eat fat storing foods like carbs and sugar combined with the 20% reduction in caloric burn?  That’s an easy weight gain and belly fat prescription!

  • Sleep less, eat more – People who got only 5-6 hours of sleep at night ate 350-500 additional calories the next day.
  • Sleep less, crave more. This is probably the biggest revelation about the connection between sleep and weight loss—and the biggest challenge for you if you're not getting at least 7 solid hours of sleep each night. Sleeping too little impacts your hormone levels. Lack of sleep impacts them so much that it’s being blamed for the number one reason we eat out of control, crave and can’t stick to a diet.
  • Insufficient sleep raises the levels of ghrelin, the hormone that tells you to eat. When it comes to weight gain and loss, this hormone plays a leading role.

Ghrelin's job is to boost your appetite, increase fat production, and make your body grow—all of which are fine things if you're a lanky 12-year-old. But as you get older, Ghrelin's effects can seem pretty darned undesirable. It's a cinch to figure out why this hormone is the last thing a dieter needs to have circulating in excess.

I bet you’re wondering, if we are so tired why can’t we sleep?  Sometimes it's just how we are hard wired or maybe your life has been so stressful that you’re chronically over stimulated causing you to live in the high cortisol environment, causing you to store fat and gain weight.  Even positive stress like over exercising or happy events can affect our hormones and stimulate cortisol.  This is why living a lean Lifestyle is crucial for long term health and weight loss.

 Reasons we can’t sleep:

  • Lack of Melatonin – Natural Melatonin levels decline gradually after the age of thirty.  Some of us produce very small amounts of it or none at all.  This is why, if you are over the age of 30, you need to supplement with Melatonin daily!
  • What is melatonin you ask? Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland located at the base of the brain that helps regulate sleep and wake cycles. This hormone is a derivative of the neurotransmitter serotonin and the amino acid tryptophan.  Guess what? Sluggish metabolisms tend to be hormonally imbalanced and make too little melatonin and it becomes a vicious cycle!
  • How does it work?   Melatonin’s role is as A SLEEP REGULATOR.  Our bodies have their own internal clocks that help regulate the natural cycle of sleeping and waking hours (circadian rhythm) by controlling the production of melatonin. Usually, the levels of this hormone begin to rise in the mid- to late evening, remain high for most of the night, and then decline in the early morning hours. 
  • Why do we need to supplement with Melatonin?  Because our natural production is greatly decreased and affected by lights and how we live, such as; light from TV’s (especially those left on at night), smart phones, computer screens and alarm clocks all inhibit melatonin production.  You’ll notice the shorter days of the fall and winter months, Melatonin production may start earlier in the day. This change can lead to symptoms of winter depression, when some people feel more tired and they need more sleep. 

The good news is................Melatonin can do more for you than just help you sleep!  Melatonin gets you lean while you sleep it's also very good for your health. Here's why!   Melatonin is the most powerful ANTIOXIDANT!  In fact it's considered the best!

Did you know Melatonin plays a role in stimulating other antioxidants. That’s what makes it a truly unique antioxidant. It is considered more powerful than vitamins C, E and A, because it is soluble in both fat and water and can enter cells that vitamins cannot. Unlike other antioxidants Melatonin does not store in the body which is why it’s important to take every night!

Testimonial

I was using a nighttime sleep aid and it wasn't helping because it was causing cravings by elevating my blood sugar and I was feeling terrible when I woke up in the morning.  I switched to the Lean Sleep and the cravings went away!   PF

I was using a store bought brand of Melatonin and although it "helped", I did not sleep soundly through the night.  I decided to try the LynFit Lean Sleep and I had the best nights sleep in a long long time!  SV

Not Losing Weight Fast Enough?

Not Losing Weight Fast Enough?

Did you know the reason most people don't lose weight is that they over-estimate how much they work out and under- estimate how much they eat!

Studies show that the following  foods are NOT even reported on food journals and yet they are calorically significant enough to STOP weight loss immediately, yet most people report being on track and following the plan!   FYI, it doesn't matter if the food is organic or says 100% natural on the label. If you eat too much it will be stored as fat! 

The MOST common under reported foods that STOP fat loss and cause weight gain!

  • Chicken breast -  A serving is 3 ounces, not more than that.  If you are eating more than that, it may be causing your weight loss to stop or slow down and definitely stop fat loss.
  • Nuts -  A serving is 1 ounce.  Who measures these?  How much do you really eat?
  • Milk - Skim milk OR WORSE half & half,  non-dairy creamers, soy, almond & coconut milks added to coffee are almost  never reported,  yet they add excess calories that stop fat loss and cause weight gain. If you aren’t losing fast enough or your weight loss has stopped, you should limit or not have these at all! They are not the best for weight loss!

The other most common “healthy”  food mistakes people make when trying to lose weight  are eating; Cheese, Breads, Rice, Pasta, Quinoa and over-eating on fruit!

Here is what I suggest.  Be sure you know what a “portion” is!  If you can't portion control it, don't eat it!  If you don't know what a portion is, look it up by reading the label!   If there is no label, DON’T EAT IT!  The best foods for weight loss can be found on the Leaner Lifestyle food journal.  If you don’t see it listed on the food journal…don’t eat it.  It’s that simple!!

For faster weight  loss, ONLY eat from the protein, vegetables and free snacks list and you’ll lose weight faster!   Only if you are still losing weight or trying to maintain, should you eat from all the lists on the food journal.

For the fastest weight loss, follow the FREE SLIMMER BY DINNER MEAL PLAN (Click HERE To Download The "Slimmer By Dinner Meal Plan") and ONLY choose foods from the protein, vegetables and, of course, free snacks list from the food journal! 

If you’re eating foods not on the list, that's what’s stopping or slowing down your weight loss!

From Amy - I've Lost Almost 30 Pounds On The LynFit Program!


Amy Obolewicz

Early 2012, I knew it was time to start eating better and exercising. I had been doing neither. At 31 and having had a baby about 3 years earlier, I could no longer use the excuse that it was too soon after the birth to get going.

I am a classic stress eater and just plain lover of food. I have always been 'big-boned', as my doctor had said (used as yet another excuse). But I knew that I was having a real problem when multiple people, in multiple places, began to ask me when I was expecting. Um, sorry to disappoint all, but that was my "food baby", not a real baby I was carrying!

I turned to Lisa Lynn and the LynFit Program because I had seen others achieve lasting results, particularly food lovers like myself. I tried one class and was immediately hooked! Since the metabolic boosting workouts Lisa utilizes were cardio challenging without me having to be so aerobically vibrant, I was very interested in staying with her program. Did I mention that I don't care to exercise? I really dislike bouncing around a room to get an aerobic workout. I'm not the most graceful gal and feel like a clod with that kind of workout. Additionally, Lisa says that with 30 minutes, 3 times a week, I can get and maintain weight loss results. Well, for this busy mom, that's something I can stick with, and have! Now I am sporting the results to show for it!

Having only taken one of Lisa's classes coupled with drinking her very affordable and very tasty Protein Shake (best one I've ever tried) twice a day, and eating more cleanly according to her food log found on her website, I saw a 5 pound weight loss in 1 week. It was incredible. I continue to lose weight gradually and steadily, while toning overall, on this same program, except now I'm working out 2 times a week at home with Lisa's video workouts, and 1 time a week with her in person. I also try and run 2-6 miles, 3-4 times a month with a good friend. I love it! Lisa's program is something this stay-at-home mom, working with a tight single income, can stick with, and continue to see results from!

After all is said and done, almost 1 year later, I have lost 26 pounds and my "food baby" is gone. I feel great and can keep up with my vivacious 3-year old - even set the pace for her too. I still am not done with my goals. I plan on losing 5-7 pounds more and doing some overall toning by increasing the weight I utilize in Lisa's workouts.

For those who may be wondering how my diet has changed since I started with LynFit, here's an example of a good day for me. You can see how you're able to still enjoy eating with the LynFit Lifestyle:

7am:  (2) Gummi multi-vitamins (hope to replace this with the Power Shot when possible), Chocolate Protein Shake and black or green tea

10:30am:  Apple (I don't like green apples so I have a Fuji apple instead) and 2-3 servings of raw celery or green beans

12:00pm:  Carb Edge, 4oz. chicken or fish with 3 cups of greens or 2 cups Normandy-style veggies (Costco)

3pm:  Chocolate Protein Shake or Toffee Lean Bar if I have them on hand

6pm:  4oz. chicken or fish with 3 cups of greens or 2 cups of Normandy-style veggies (Costco), or, 3 egg whites with 3-4 cups of sauteed spinach and 1/2 cup of corn

8pm:  Decaf Bigelow French Vanilla Tea

One time a week I have frozen yogurt, and definitely more than 1/2 cup serving. Probably a 2 cup serving with sprinkles and a spoonful of chocolate chips.

Yes, I do have some really 'bad day' eating habits. Like adding a tablespoon of peanut butter with my morning apple snack, or I may make chocolate chip cookies or zucchini bread and eat 1-2 servings. 

And here are a couple of great freebies: Sugarless gum (Dessert Delight Mint Chocolate Chip and Strawberry Shortcake), and Starbucks Iced Passion Tea Lemonade (no sugar added).

I'm so grateful that I can see the results, even with my 'bad days'. All the hard work is paying off. Without Lisa and her expertise, help, and products, it would not have been possible. Thanks Lisa!

Metabolic Boosters That Help You Drop A Pound A Day


Have you tried to lose weight and burn fat, and no matter how hard you work out or what you eat you just can’t seem to drop an ounce? You need to boost your metabolism to start losing weight, shedding body fat and decreasing cellulite.

Our metabolism slows down as we age beginning at age 25 due to damage caused by fasting, over-exercising and following crazy fad diets. The secret to weight loss isn’t increasing your calories (this is what causes weight gain) its boosting your metabolism so that you burn more calories even at rest!

Here are 4 surefire ways to boost your metabolism so that you can lose a pound a day and shed fat fast.

  • Metabolic Booster 1: Build your metabolism before you boost it with Metabolic Exercise
The right kind of exercise will boost your metabolism and force your body to shed fat fast where the wrong exercise will stop fat loss and may actually cause weight gain. Metabolic exercise is different from Zumba, Pilates and Insanity/P90X. Metabolic Exercise works many major muscle groups at once in a super set fashion without allowing rest. Of course, you need to add a daily walk as our bodies require this for health not just metabolic boosting.

WARNING: If you’re not seeing results from your current exercise program, add Metabolic Boosting Exercise (2) days per week to boost your metabolism.

Replace your carb filled breakfast (yes even healthy carbs) with a high quality whey protein shake or Lean Bar. I created my own line of supplements because all of the shakes on the market contained inferior ingredients that slow down our metabolisms and are geared for weight gain.

WARNING: Most of the shakes and bars you find in stores are not for Metabolic Boosting and contain inferior ingredients like soy, milk protein and things you would never expect to find in weight loss products…..sugar, lots of fat and carbs that stopfat loss and slow our metabolisms.

  • Metabolic Booster 3: Turbo Charge your metabolism with the right combination of blended supplements
Supplementing is the final step in a fat loss process not the first even though we all tend to supplement first and wonder why they don’t work! It’s not that supplements won’t work if you don’t eat right and exercise, but they are 3 times more effective when we combine them with a metabolic Boosting diet and exercise.

Don’t play supplement scientist and try to blend your own fat blasting combo…allow the experts to do that for you. Celebrities and Pro fitness models rely on supplements like Raspberry Ketones, Forskolin, Phase 2 White Kidney Bean extract (found in LynFit Carb Edge), L-Carnitine, African Mango and of course Green Tea aand Green Coffee Bean Extract to get ready for photo shoots, so why do they seem to get results and you don’t? They always go for quality first and buy from a reliable source. Scientists blend them so they are perfectly formulated with exactly what your body needs.  No more and no less.
 
WARNING: When it comes to buying supplements, keep in mind that more isn’t always better. Better is Better! Supplement ingredients work better together when they are combined with other fat burning ingredients. This makes them much more powerful than taking ingredients alone and keeps the body from getting used to any one ingredient because it keeps your body guessing and that’s great for Metabolic boosting.

  • Metabolic Booster 4: If you wanna be lean you gotta eat greens and White fish
If you’re not losing weight you may need an additional push and the best way to get that is by eating clean, lean foods that boost your metabolism because they are so low in carbohydrates and low calorie while delivering lots of nutrition to feed our muscles but starve the fat making it easier to burn it off. The truth is that if you’re not feeding your fat cells it will leave. The best foods for fat loss are White fish (shrimp too) and lots of green vegetables. Making the change from chicken to fish will boost your metabolism.

WARNING: Not all healthy foods are good for fat loss. Avocados, cheese, nuts, almonds, coconut and soy milks are all touted as health foods but they contain fat and sugar and fat will not leave if you’re eating excess fat.

Craving Carbs?

Craving Carbs?If there is ONE thing you SHOULD do EVERY DAY if you're serious about losing weight and losing belly fat, it’s drinking the LynFit Complete Protein Shake every day for breakfast!

One of the benefits of drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake isn’t how inexpensive it is ($1.42 per serving), but the fact that it boosts your metabolism 25% and offsets those not so good eating days we all have from time to time. This is my personal secret to helping celebrities lose weight FAST! 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.

I don’t know about you, but I am always struggling with food, especially if I start my day off eating the wrong thing. That’s why I start every day off with my Complete Protein Shake, and I find it’s the easiest most satisfying thing I can have for breakfast! There is NO thinking, planning or cleaning up a big mess! Simply stir and go and if I don’t have time to mix a shake I grab a LynFit Lean Bar.  Most bars are made from inferior sources of protein BUT not LynFit’s Lean Bars!  LynFit’S Complete Protein Shake and Lean Bars are made from the highest grade whey possible and are always gluten free as well as lactose free (99.9999%) and virtually free of carbs and fats, unlike other protein bars and shakes. If your weight loss has plateaued it's time to boost your metabolism FIRST by drinking the Complete Protein Shake or Lean Bar

Weight loss is all about what you’re eating so if you’re trying to lose weight, substitute breakfast and lunch with a Complete Protein Shake and focus on fish and veggies for dinner and you’ll drop a pound a day no matter how stubborn your metabolism is! For more info follow the Slimmer by Dinner Meal Plan found on my website. 

DID you know?

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.

People who eat grains for breakfast tend to crave more carbohydrates later in the day compared to subjects who ate complete protein found in egg whites or high grade whey such as LynFit's Complete Protein Shake.

DID you know?

    • People who eat Complete Proteins/or Protein for breakfast every day are 43% less likely to develop obesity
    • 40% less likely to develop fat around the belly
    • 32% less likely to develop diabetes 
    • The less carbohydrates you eat the healthier you’ll live and the LEANER you’ll be!

Are You Snacking Yourself Fat?

Did you know that we only need 1/3 of the food we eat every day?  Yet, we all seem to continue to over-eat even though we know it’s about decreasing calories to lose fat!  

The biggest obstacle that STOPS weight loss seems to be controlling our hunger monster! This causes us to snack all day! The problem isn’t the snacking, it’s what we snack on that causes us to gain weight. 

We tend to snack on foods that are best left for weight gain like; yogurt, nuts and yes, this includes almonds! Not only do these foods trigger us to eat more but they are also high in carbs, sugar and fat and that is why they STOP weight loss!

The SNACK SOLUTION?

Snack lean by eating foods that boost your metabolism and make you feel full and won’t trigger you to eat more so you stay in the fat loss zone! Snacks should satisfy your sweet tooth without triggering your cravings for more of the wrong foods!

Here are the most popular LEAN snacks that cause weight loss!

1.  LynFIT Lean Latte – Add 1-2 Scoops of Vanilla Protein Shake to 6 oz. warm coffee and sprinkle w/ cinnamon. Use a frother or blender to make is fluffy!

2.  LynFIT Blast Fat Vanilla Cloud Cookies - Place a LynFIT Tahitian Vanilla Lean Bar cut up into pieces and place on a dish sprayed w/non-stick cooking spray. Microwave for 2-40 seconds, depending on the power of your microwave. Cool slightly, sprinkle w/ cinnamon and enjoy!

3.  LynFIT Kill Cravings Hot Chocolate - Add 1-2 Scoops of Chocolate Complete Protein Powder to warm (NOT hot water it will cause shake to curdle) water.

4.  LynFIT Peanut Butter & Chocolate Metabolic Milk Shake – Pour ½ cup of cold water into a blender, add 2 scoops Protein Powder and 1 tsp PB2.  Blend on lowest speed for 10 seconds. Gradually add 5 small to medium ice cubes until completely blended and then blend on high speed for 1 minute.

5.  LynFIT Strawberry Jell-O Fat Blast -  2 Scoops of Vanilla or Strawberry Complete Protein Powder and 1 package sugar-free Strawberry Jell-O.  Make the Jell-O according to the directions on the box. Just before you've finished, add the Protein Powder to the mixture. Let stand, refrigerate, then ENJOY!

So you wanna know why this last one is my favorite is......(lol), the fat loss binge!  I combine a Metabolic Milk Shake with a Lean Bar to over feed my insatiable cravings! I tend to miss meals so I simply combine meals 1 and 2 together......even though it isn’t perfect, it works for me!

Still not stuffed?

Being hungry is almost NEVER about food!!  Try 1-2-3-cups of decaf coffee or tea and then get busy to distract yourself until your next meal.  

Warning: Not all bars and shakes are created equal.  Do not try this with other bars and shakes as it will stop your fat loss dead in its tracks!  They are high carb, full of fat, and not specifically blended for fat burning the way LynFIT Lean Bars and Complete Protein Shakes are! That's why most bars and shakes are so cheap! They are not made with the high quality whey that boost your metabolsim the way LynFIT products are.

FROM THE HEART

Every day people ask me… were you ever fat?  Ha, that's a funny question to me because I came from a very inactive family who did not take part in anything active.  My family watched NASCAR races and if you have ever been to a race you know there isn't a healthy food in sight! It's french fries ,beer and hot dogs and you sit through the whole 3-4 hour race! I was plump already and as I became a teen I just kept growing!  I lived for food and when life got tough I ate my way through the pain! Eating my feelings made things worse.

I also learned that I was anxious and that made me eat...My hunger had nothing to do with real hunger but rather a dysfunctional way to suppress my feelings and that I had to learn how to give myself permission to feel my feelings and process them because they don't go away. In fact, if you eat to suppress your feelings it makes things worse because you have the guilt from eating to deal with now!  

I also learned to find something to be grateful for everyday because it makes you feel better and that makes you want to work out and eat right!

I learned that food is part of the problem NOT the solution and that when your food is in order your whole life will be I order!

I take oxytocin now if I feel anxious and that allows me to navigate my way through the uncomfortable stuff and that allows me to walk away from food and lose weight.

I say this simple Serenity Prayer when I feel stressed

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference!


I urge you to bring God into your weight loss by asking him for help or better yet scream HELP!!!!  He will give you what you need to overcome the obstacles in your life and if you’re too tired he will carry you through!


Here are some questions that I was asked when I appeared on Trinity Broadcast Network

Q- Carman - Did you believe that you could lose weight?

A- Lisa Lynn- No!! I did not think I would lose weight.  I thought that weight loss was for everyone else but not for me.  Being "stocky" and " bulky" translation....over weight was how I would live for the rest of my life even though I was in charge of makeover groups that performed body makeovers in as little as 2 weeks!  I helped everyone lose weight and reach their goals but it just wasn't happening for me! My metabolism was dead and now I know that’s why everyone else lost weight while I gained it!  My struggles inspired me to figure out how to finally lose weight in spite of my under active thyroid and dead metabolism.


Q- Carman - What changes have you made that helped you lose weight with an under active thyroid and sluggish metabolism?

A- Lisa Lynn I learned that I need to eat more protein and that's why I drink a protein shake every day for breakfast.  It boosts my metabolism, whereas,  the cereal I was eating made me crave carbs even more and was causing my insulin to spike stopping my fat loss instantly!


Q– Carman - You mentioned that you have a serious sweet tooth and that you fight with food all of the time. Is that true?

A- Lisa Lynn  Yes and I'm not proud of that at all!  It's been the single most frustrating thing in my life.  I crave sweets all the time (not anymore since I eat Lean Bars and drink the Complete protein shake ) and once I start eating them I can't stop!!! Let’s be honest.... it's a binge and it is very depressing to be this way.

Everything turned around for me the day I started a system that required me to focus on protein and vegetables and exercising daily and no more bread, cereal, rice, pasta, crackers or high carb protein bars BUT I don’t miss them because I feel so much happier and leaner!

The program relied on supplements that helped stop cravings, increased my energy and alleviated my depression and for the first time in my life I felt happy and like I wanted to lose weight!  That also meant that losing weight might be possible for me!

I began weighing and measuring my food and writing everything down that went into my mouth and I had to decrease my exercise program as I was exercising very intensely to over-compensate for all of the food I was eating .  I even tried being vegan to control my weight and I actually grew larger!!!!!  Immediately I lost weight and that's what inspired me to create my Leaner Lifestyle System!  I wanted to share my findings with the world and make losing weight a lasting reality.

I hope this glimpse inside on what motivated me to lose weight inspires you to do the same!
