Solutions To Your Top 3 Weight Loss Issues
My answer is still you can't supplement away a bad diet. However, smart use of supplements can help you overcome the obstacles that keep you from losing weight.
I'm going to take the top 3 issues we all face in losing weight and I'm going to teach you how much, when and why you need to take these supplements. I don't know about you, but telling me to do something never works until I understand WHY I need to.
Weight Loss Issue #1: Sluggish, dead metabolism - "I just can't lose weight!"
Weight Loss Issue #2: Cravings and hunger
Weight Loss Issue #3: Can't lose that stubborn body fat
This 1-2-3 combination (LynFit Complete Protein Shake for breakfast, LynFit Cutting Edge before workouts to burn extra fat, and LynFit Carb Edge to control cravings) has been known to decrease belly fat by 12% and quickly reduce waist size.
If that's not enough, it gets even better! You'll see and feel results in 10 weeks when you combine the LynFit Complete Protein Shake, LynFit Carb Edge and LynFit Accelerator together at the same time!
Are You In Pain?
Pain, no matter what the cause or your age, is your body's way of letting you know it's out of balance. I always tell my clients that if you rest (no exercise) you'll rust! That's why we feel so horrible and achy. Exercise keeps our bodies limber and increase circulation all over, which delivers the nutrients our body needs to heal. Exercise also removes toxins making it critical when it comes time to keeping your body in working order so that we feel good. And I know from my own personal experience that when I feel good I eat better!
Remember, you can always do the Recovery Stretch or Lean Core Workouts on those days when you're not feeling very good. Our joints are designed like bladders and they need to be emptied in order to feel better. Have you ever noticed that you always feel better when you exercise and your aches and pains go away?
There really is no excuse NOT to exercise. If you're short on time do 15 minutes of the DVD in the morning and the other 15 after work.
Here are the top 5 causes of arthritis and joint pain:
- Eating red meat that causes inflammation because it's so acidic. Try seasoning your chicken the way you would a steak to satisfy and you'll lose your craving for red meat. Not to mention, you'll lose a lot weight!
- High blood sugar levels! If you carry most of your body fat around your stomach that's a sure sign your blood sugar levels are high. How do you fix that? You need to eat less starch and carbohydrates like breads, rice, pasta, cereal, potatoes and decrease your fruit consumption. Be sure to check everything you eat or drink, including creamers, soy, almond and coconut milks. Keep a watch on protein bars and shakes (unless you're using LynFit's as it's low carb and low sugar).
You can also quickly lower blood sugar levels by taking LynFit Carb Edge 2-3 times daily before meals. It keeps blood sugar balanced by not allowing carbs to be digested. Taking LynFit Carb Edge also keeps your metabolism moving so you'll lose weight.
- You're not getting enough Omega-3's and getting too much Omega-6's from olive oils and food. Everyone should be taking LynFit Omega-3 daily for pain relief, to balance sugar and ease depression symptoms we feel this time of year. But not all Omega-3 supplements are what you think. Be sure your Omega contains at least 500mg of DHA and EPA each or take LynFit Omega-3. It contains purified high quality Omega-3 and contains 800 EPA and 600 DHA. It is made from pharmaceutical grade ingredients that are free of mercury and other contaminants that other store-bought brands contain. That's why I call it "pure"!
Did you know that Omega-3 travels along the same pathway as pain medications relieving pain the same way BUT Omega-3 won't slow down metabolism? I suggest taking (1) LynFit Omega-3 with a morning LynFit Complete Protein Shake and another at 3pm so you'll feel better. It also helps to keep cravings under control when they hit the hardest. For more advanced pain, take (1) LynFit Omega-3 before your workout and (1) immediately after.
- The pain medications you're taking to relieve the pain may actually be making it worse! Not just pain medications but lots of medications cause joint pain and body aches, not to mention they are often the cause of weight gain. Try a natural approach instead that relieves pain and helps you lose weight. Try taking LynFit Recovery Agent daily as a way to prevent or control pain. Or, use it the same way you would use an over-the-counter pain medication. You'll not only feel better fast, you'll be healing your body at the source of the pain versus masking the symptoms, making pain rebound after the medication wears off. Most of the time the rebound pain is worse than the original!
- You're not drinking enough water! Drink more water or green tea than you think you need to stay hydrated and help flush toxins out of your body that cause pain and makes you sluggish.
Get moving, NOW!
The Morning After Halloween Diet
If you're like me, you most likely will get into trouble with Halloween candy everywhere. And now you feel horrible and need to fix it fast before you start backsliding! Well, this is no time to slack as Halloween kicks off the 4 month legal binge, also known as the "holidays". That's when we all make excuses to overeat and miss our workouts!
BUT WAIT! Before you completely let go of the clean-eating reins you should know that every time you allow yourself to gain weight (more than 2 pounds) you damage your metabolism, making it feel impossible to lose weight no matter how hard you try. But don't worry, LynFit's Metabolic Boosting System is specifically geared for this and can fix any weight gain and metabolic damage you caused by overeating the wrong foods.
The secret to NOT gaining weight and also to losing weight is lowering your blood sugar levels and keeping them balanced. If you can balance blood sugar you can avoid gaining weight and cause weight loss. But I gotta tell you that you don't do this by eating small meals all day. What type of food you eat and when you eat matter more. There are specific things you need to do if you're serious about losing weight and melting that stubborn belly fat away!
Here are 5 ways to BALANCE your blood sugar levels that cause fat loss and PREVENT WEIGHT GAIN on the day of, and morning after your BIG eating event (daily is best).
YOUR AM METABOLIC BOOST
- Boost 1: Take (1) LynFit Cutting Edge before your workout to force your body to burn 25% more fat
- Boost 2: Perform LynFit's Metabolic Booster Workout first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to drive blood sugar levels down quickly for faster weight loss. Only Metabolic Boosting Exercise will rev up your metabolism so your body becomes a fat melting machine vs. a fat storing machine. The Metabolic Boosting Workout is designed to work your body making it tighter and more toned and WILL NOT build bulky muscles the way most workouts do. It only takes 30 minutes to do at home and all you need is a pair of dumbbells!
Want to see results in 1 week? Do 3 Metabolic Boosting Workouts for optimal results! Make sure and stop all other workouts for best results except walking or biking while you're trying to lose weight.
- Boost 3: Drink a LynFit Complete Protein Shake (or eat a LynFit Lean Bar) immediately after your workout or within 1 hour of waking, in place of (not in addition to) you usual breakfast to boost metabolism by 25% and help keep cravings in check. Be sure NOT to add fruit or milk of any kind as this is about lowering your blood sugar levels which boosts your metabolism. Even the sugar that's naturally in fruit can stop this process. Want a flatter stomach? Eat less fruit!
YOUR PM METABOLIC BOOST
- Boost 4: Take (1) LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm. Taking LynFit Pure Omega-3 at 3pm helps you avoid the cravings that spiral out of control in the afternoon from blood sugar levels that are unbalanced. LynFit Pure Omega-3 is the only Omega-3 of its kind that's geared for weight loss and balances blood sugar. It contains the exact amount of "FATS that burn fat" called DHA and EPA. Fats take longer to digest so taking them at 3pm will make you feel full when craving time rolls around and you'll have more control over your food when eating and you'll be able to avoid temptations later on.
- Boost 5: I make sure that every client I see in person has a bottle of LynFit Carb Edge with them at all times because we all fall into the "not-so-good" eating trap at one time or another. So here is a little "Lisa Trick" to keep you lean and mean - YOU CAN BLOCK ALL UNWANTED CARBS from being stored by taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge 30 minutes (or whenever you remember) before your "Cheat Meal" to block up to 65% of all unwanted carbs from being absorbed without causing gastric distress! Who doesn't want that?
LynFit Carb Edge contains over 20 super-star ingredients, all seen on the good Dr's show. But the one I'm talking about today is Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract that literally paralyzes the enzyme that digests starch, preventing a portion of the carbs from being broken down into sugar and stored as fat. You can't just eat white kidney beans - you need to take LynFit Carb Edge for this effect.For the best results, I take LynFit Carb Edge at 3pm along with LynFit Pure Omega-3 (I need max power when it comes to candy and sweets) and then I take another one at dinner to block carbs if they should find their way into my mouth!
So, try these "Morning After Rituals" anytime you fall off the wagon!

You Are Stronger Than Cancer!
I have learned the MOST important life lessons while working with cancer survivors and their families. Those lessons have taught me to appreciate my body because it carries me through my life every day. Instead of always complaining "it's not perfect", I am reminded how cancer survivors tell me you don't know how blessed you are until "that moment" arrives and your whole world changes, forever.
Cancer survivors always come in excited to work out because they GET TO WORK OUT! I don't see the usual "I don't want to", or "I don't have time." They are happy to feel good enough to get through their workouts and every one of them has said, "I wish I knew how much a difference taking care of my body was before I was sick."
The Big C, no scratch that, the little "c", survivors have changed my life for the better because they have taught me to NOT put off living and to live each day like it's my last. Finding JOY in everything I do, including working out and eating healthy and never going to bed mad; always telling those closest to me "I love you!"
LynFit is all about balance and learning how to live "in" balance. There is a very good reason for that. Living out of balance causes our bodies stress and stress is responsible for 90% of all illness. So before you go abusing yourself with some insane workout or diet plan that's going to cause your body and life more harm than good, ask yourself this; "would I suggest this to my kids or someone I adore?" If not, why are you beating yourself up that way? It's not necessary. You'll get better results doing it from a place of love vs. desperation or not loving yourself!
This month, being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is all about Hope and Belief. I want to personally let you know that you're stronger than you think and you're stronger than cancer! Cancer may take your hair. It may take your strength. It may even take away precious time with loved ones. But I am here to tell you, IT CANNOT TAKE YOUR SOUL!
Here are 4 "bad habits" to stay away from when you are faced with the worst news:
- Did you know that drinking more than 4 alcoholic drinks per week increases your cancer risk? If you drink more than this I urge you to seek help right away. Don't wait until you're sick.
- Carrying excess weight in your midsection increases your risk of disease because it's a sign that your blood sugar is too high. Belly fat elevates harmful hormones as well and is your body's way of letting you know you're eating too many processed carbs. Anything you eat "out of a box"; including protein bars, sports beverages and excessive fruits and juices can elevate carbs in your body. "Sugar waters" like soy, almond or coconut, milks and creamers are hidden sources of sugar hiding under the health halo. *WARNING: If you're juicing and using lots of fruits this also elevates blood sugar levels and cancer feeds off sugar! Feeding the cancer is the last thing you want to do!
- Stop soy products! This is the first thing an oncologist will tell you. Check labels on everything, including and especially, on health foods! Most diet companies add this to their shakes and weight loss products because it's cheap. LynFit fights back by helping you live leaner lives and by NOT adding soy to its Protein Bar or Shakes!
- No smoking! Enough said!
Here are 4 "best habits" to help fight this intruder in your body:
- Lifting weights 2 times weekly, especially if you're undergoing treatment, can strengthen the bones and offset side effects from chemo. Continue doing this even after your treatments.
- Remember to get enough rest. Your body knows when it needs rest and it will tell you - listen to your body.
- Mama was right; eat your veggies every day!
- And, here's the big one - No matter where you might be in the process DO NOT BE PATIENT! Fight cancer with a sense of urgency. Fight with everything you have in you because you are fighting the battle of your life. And just when you feel you have no more strength left to fight, let go and let God. Let Him do the heavy lifting for you because God really does love you, and so do I!
What Your Body Is Telling You When It Aches
"ITIS" means it's coming from inflammation. Whether it's sinusitis, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, or fibromyalgia, your body is telling you it needs additional nutrients to heal. Believe it or not, pain is positive as it's your body's way of saying "you're not taking care of me!" As we age or overdo it, our bodies require very specific nutrients daily, and lots of them, to get the job done. This makes your diet and supplement program more important than ever!
But what you may not know is that all of those over-the-counter pain meds (especially prescriptions meds) may be part of the reason you ache. Not to mention, they slow down your metabolism. Pain medications block the healing process, versus helping it and may cause rebound pain. Now, I'm not suggesting that you stop cold turkey. But I am suggesting that you begin treating your pain with a more natural holistic approach. This approach will make you feel better fast and save you time and money!
Here are SIX things your body is telling you when it hurts:
- GET UP and MOVE Every day to help remove toxins and bring fresh blood into the area! Don't repeat the same activity that hurt you. Stretching, gentle walking or indoor bicycling works wonders. Do LynFit's Recovery and stretch daily at the pace that feels right for your body.
- DRINK MORE WATER than you think you need. Our bodies need 8-10 glasses of water daily but when we ached we require more to help flush the toxins out. Drink more water and sip hot tea with lemon to help with the emotional side of joint pain and promote faster healing. Aim for 12 glasses of water daily and try floating a lemon or lime wedge in your water to add flavor and make you crave it. You'll drink more.
- Take Pure Omega 3 daily even if you eat salmon 2 times a week! Did you know that taking Omega 3 every day can alleviate joint pain and soreness? LynFit's Pure Omega 3 is unlike any other you can buy at a store because it's purified to remove contaminants that cause joint pain and is always free of saturated fats found in less expensive brands! Now you know why the store-bought brands are so cheap and I gotta tell you that these benefits can only be seen when the right amounts of EPA and DHA are present. You need at least 600mg of EPA and DHA to get these benefits! As you can see HERE, LynFit's Pure Omega meets and or exceeds those levels! When taking LynFit's Pure Omega you'll see and feel the results within 2 weeks!
- DUMP the olive oil. Eating too much olive oil can actually exacerbate joint pain because it contains Omega 6 which decreases your helpful Omega 3, causing joint pain. The only essential fat we are deficient in is Omega 3. So drop all other fats such as olive oil, flax, avocados, nuts and seeds, as they all contribute to weight gain and more joint pain. Even essential fats cause weight gain and add to our waistlines and need to be reduced!
- LOSE WEIGHT drinking a Complete Protein Shake! Losing 5-10 pounds can make a world of difference when it comes to joint pain and getting relief! When we lose weight we release a pressure valve that relieves body pains almost instantly. Every extra pound increases the load on your joints three to five times, so you you're increasing your pain and risk of developing osteoporosis many times being overweight. Lose weight fast be drinking a Complete Protein Shake daily for breakfast to BLOCK pain causing cortisol from rising. Nourish your body with every amino acid it needs for healing and repair.
- BLOCK Carbs and Sugar! High blood sugar levels cause pain to elevate! Following the Slimmer By Dinner Meal Plan keeps blood sugar levels low. That's why it helps you lose weight fast. What else can you do if your blood sugar levels are high? It's also helpful to take (1) Carb Edge before meals, especially the "NOT SO GOOD" ones. Clinical research show it BLOCKS 65% of unwanted carbs from being digested, so they aren't absorbed and they don't raise blood sugar levels. Carb Edge quickly lowers blood sugar levels that contribute to joint pain and will also help you conquer cravings!
If you are one of those people who suffer with daily aches and pains you may want to add LynFit's Recovery Agent as a daily defense. Recovery Agent is a multivitamin and joint healing supplements wrapped into one!
Wanna Lose 10 Pounds Of Fat In 2 Weeks?
If you have been exercising and not seeing the results you hoped for, or maybe you even gained weight (which is actually very common), numerous research studies have shown that individuals who start on exercise programs actually subconsciously eat more calories due to the fact that exercise also stimulates your appetite. When it comes to exercising for weight loss and transforming your body, not all programs are created equal. Who wants to spend all of that time in the gym to gain weight or grow your thighs? Not me!
That's why it's critically important that you also take specific, strategic steps (an exact plan) to create a fat burning environment in your body through the foods that you eat combined with Metabolic Boosting exercise.
Losing 10 pounds of fat in two weeks can become a reality if you follow these simple specific steps. The difference is that you will be highly focused for 2 weeks on these three things.
THREE STEPS TO GUARANTEE YOUR WEIGHT LOSS:
Step 1: Displace Calories and Boost your metabolism as soon as you wake up every day drinking a Complete Protein Shake.
Drinking a Complete Protein Shake within 30 minutes of waking up stops cortisol from rising, making it easier to melt the fat you’re storing around your mid section versus eating a bowl of oatmeal due to the high carb content. This step also makes it easy to lower calories while providing solid nutrition so you don’t have to make any decisions. No cooking and you start losing weight right away while you’re learning how to eat for weight loss.
Step 2: Exercise daily in a metabolic fashion to boost your metabolism so you burn more fat and calories all day long without stimulating your appetite!
Metabolic workouts combine a precise weight training routine that works your whole body in 30-40 minutes without resting along with a cardio activity like walking on a treadmill or biking.
Example: Metabolic Boosting Workout for 30 minutes on Mon-Wed-Fri.
Cardiovascular exercise daily for 30-60 minutes.
Step 3: Eat at very specific times to create a Metabolic Fast each night.
This is a great solution for all of you “off hour” workers. If you begin eating at 5am be sure stop eating at 5pm. Basically, you’re eating every 3 hours getting all of your meals in a 12 hour window of time. This provides a 12 hour fast each night to maximize your metabolism. It’s the best way to melt ab fat because it lowers blood sugar and forces your body to burn fat for fuel. This is also great for anti aging and is simple to do.
Start today and join the 10 POUND challenge!
Not sure what to do? Make sure you have my book, The Metabolism Solution.
This system is guaranteed to work if you do it. It’s doable by anyone at any age and can be done anywhere at any time. So, leave those excuses behind, forget about the gym and start dreaming of your new lean toned body that’s full of energy. All you need is the “WANT” to lose weight, a pair of dumbbells, a Complete Protein Shake and/or a Box of Lean Bars and you’re ready to start losing weight and fat before today is over!
