Bikini Slim Down Results with DeliverLean

For those who don't know, I began a "Bikini Slim Down" with DeliverLean about one month ago and the benchmark is almost up for completion.   This can only mean one thing - it's time to share my results.  Let me preface this by stating that I am only sharing my results to give readers an idea of what to expect from eating clean with DeliverLean's meal plan and living a healthy lifestyle.  Additionally, staying active is added into the mix of a slim down because the pair go hand in hand.

DIET
My meal plan with DeliverLean primarily consisted of pescatarian and vegan options with no gluten.  Cold-pressed OnJuice juices and raw desserts were also added to my plan, which made it even better.




A typical day of my meal plan:
Breakfast - Cultured coconut yogurt parfait with organic granola, mango, blueberries and raw cashews
Lunch - Candy corn salad with corn, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, hearts of palm and vinaigrette
Dinner - Herb mahi scallopine, quinoa cake and lemon dijon kale
Dessert - Gluten-free molten chocolate lava cake

WORKOUT REGIMEN
Each morning, I performed a P90X3 workout (30 minutes) followed by 200 squats and a walk to the park with my little guy.  I also incorporated ab-focused exercises in the evenings, such as Tone It Up.

SLIM DOWN TIPS
1) Drink a glass of water upon waking up to speed up metabolism
2) Drink a detoxifying tea in the evening


RESULTS
Over the span of a month, I slimmed and toned my body while losing 2 inches in my waistline and about 8 pounds.

Lose Weight for the Summer with Style By Lynsee & DeliverLean


Summertime usually means one of two things -  it's time to slim down to fit in that tiny bikini (or man-kini) or hibernate from all pools and beaches.  If you're anything like me, this doesn't quite hit you until May rolls around the corner and then it slaps you in the face that the time has come to shed those last 5 - 10 pounds.  Upon strategizing how to lose the weight, I was introduced to DeliverLean.  DeliverLean is a premier gourmet meal delivery company in South Florida that offers clean and fresh meals delivered to your doorstep.

As a pescatarian who tends to stray away from gluten and occasionally enjoys vegan dishes, I found it extremely helpful that the healthy food delivery service offers custom meal plans to fit my diet.  I usually cook my meals at home to save my body from any added preservatives; however, DeliverLean provides preservative-free meals prepared by gourmet chefs.  Let's face it, I'm a health freak and if you follow my Instagram then you probably already knew this by now.



When I received my first delivery on Monday, it felt like Christmas.  I stumbled out of bed and opened the front door to find a cooler filled with prepared meals for the next two days, and it was all completely healthy.  DeliverLean provides drop-offs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The meals are 250 - 400 calories each, containing lean proteins, low-glycemic carbohydrates, high-fiber organic fruits and vegetables and healthy fats.   DeliverLean also brews up raw, cold-pressed OnJuice juices which may be added to a meal plan as well.  Aside from my meal plan, I also track daily consumption on an app called MyFitnessPal which allows you to record everything consumed with nutritional information included.



Let's get to the good stuff,  my meal plan...which has been incredibly delicious.

A typical two-day delivery under my meal plan includes:

Breakfast
Gluten-Free Caramel Apple French Toast with Coconut Yogurt
Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Peppers, Onions and Sweet Potato Latke

Gluten-Free Caramel Apple French Toast with Coconut Yogurt
Lunch
Brussel Sprouts & Kale Salad with Toasted Sunflower Seeds and Coconut Dressing
Wild Mushroom and Caramelized Shallots Quesadilla with Vegan Cheese and Tomato Bruschetta

Wild Mushroom and Caramelized Shallots Quesadilla with Vegan Cheese and Tomato Bruschetta
Dinner
Vegan Panang Curry Tofu with Winter Veggies and Brown Rice
Pescatarian Balsamic Snapper with Wild Rice Pilaf, Broccoli and Onions

Pescatarian Balsamic Snapper with Wild Rice Pilaf, Broccoli and Onions
Dessert 
Desserts may be added to a meal plan, and range from 90 to 300 calories per dish.  Let's just say I almost died after trying the Gluten-Free Chocolate Molten Cake.
Raw Vegan Chocolate Mint Tart
Low-Fat Strawberry Cheesecake


Prior to beginning my summer meal plan, I measured and weighed myself so I'll be sharing results on my social networks.  For those who are looking to join the slim down for bikini season challenge with me, sign up for one month and receive two free days here!

Bikini season is right around the corner, and often people ask what I do to get in shape for summer or how I stay healthy.  To maintain a balanced lifestyle, I believe that it requires a combination of a nutritious diet and exercise.  However, there are some other tips that I incorporate into my "Spring Slim Down" routine that help whip me into shape a little quicker and give me beautiful confidence to shine.

To kickstart my day, I love to put together a healthy breakfast that is appealing to the eye and body.  One of my favorite meals is a big platter filled with fresh fruits paired alongside gluten-free oats or yogurt and granola.  It gives me enough energy to begin my day and remain active with my morning workout routine.

After breakfast, I either pop in one of my Beachbody workout DVD's or head outside to do some quick workouts on the beach.  During my slim down routine, I utilize a park bench to conduct tricep dips, a stair railing to do standing push-ups, and I've also been loving squats lately.  Squats and push-ups are great ways to tone the core and firm up that booty for bikini season!

In addition to a healthy diet and workout, I use the Bliss Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine to tighten up my skin and give the overall body a more contoured look.  I've been using a few different Bliss beauty products and love the effects that they have on my skin, especially if I need to prepare for bikini season.  Although, it's always bikini season in Miami.  

The Bliss Fat Girl Lean Machine is a unique beauty tool that is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite, and smoothens and firms skin.  After a good workout, I like to take the spa-powered contouring system and run the vacuum massager over my legs, buttocks and abs.

Prior to using the machine, I apply the Bliss Fat Girl Slim skin firming cream which contains encapsulated caffeine, and massage it into my skin for about 20-30 seconds.  This cream helps reduce any cellulite and firms up the skin while applying the Fat Girl Slim Lean Machine device.

I've really been loving my new arm candy, the Girl on Fire Stack by Ibiza Passion

A glimpse of my latest video up on my YouTube Channel : 5 Easy Tips to Shed Belly Fat in 7 Days

Spending my weekends basking in the sun on the sandy beach is so relaxing!

A few new goodies courtesy of 2B Bebe, which I can't wait to style!  I've already styled the Forbidden Blue dress in yesterday's post that can be viewed here

It was a pleasure to work on the Dwyane Wade Elite Camp in Chicago!  We had a great turnout for the underprivileged children in the Chicago area, and it went toward a great cause.


My favorite warm weather combo: Cold watermelon and a refreshing green juice.

Betsey Johnson's all pink soiree was such a fun and girly party!  Betsey is exactly how I imagined she would be: Full of life, fabulous, and exuberant.

Like mommy, like son.

Thanks to Allure Beauty for sending me the best beauty products for the Fall season!

An oldie, but goodie: Little Lynsee as a young buck (and yes, I rocked the bowl cut for years).

CoverGirl's pop-up beauty bar was filled with glamorous goodies.
I hope you follow me on Instagram at @LynseeHeeKyeong for more Instagram photos!  XOXO

New Video: Healthy Habits - My 5-Day Juice Cleanse Experience

Beauty stems from the inside-out, and one of my favorite methods for resetting my body is juice detoxing (or cleansing).  After a juice cleanse, it leaves skin looking much smoother  and gives a beautiful glow that can't be applied with makeup.  Therefore, I decided to try a 5-day juice cleanse to help remove any excess toxins from the body.  Although I've done cleanses before, a 5-day juice cleanse was a new experience and amazing to say the least.

A typical juice cleanse consists of drinking 5-6 8oz. glasses of raw juice per day, along with water and/or green tea without consuming any foods.  It seems to be trending on the west coast, with brands such as the BluePrint Cleanse, Pressed Juicery, and Jugo Fresh.  These companies will deliver juice directly to clients which is rather convenient.  For this experience, I juiced my own natural or organic fruits and vegetables because I own a Black and Decker juicer, which worked well for me.

Check out my 5-Day Juice Cleanse experience here:



Recipe used in my Green Juice (it varies, but this is the typical one that I used often):
1 bunch of Kale
1 bunch of Romaine
1 bunch of Spinach
1 bunch of celery
2 cucumbers
2 apples (green)
10 grapes

OOTD: Valentine's Day Look & National Commercial Feature!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  If you read my Healthy Habits: How I Lost 55 Pounds in Two Months post, then you know that I lost my baby weight by doing the Insanity workout program.  My results were great so the creators of the program (Shaun T and Beachbody) flew me to New York to film the newest Insanity commercial.  For my recap of that trip, check out NYC Trip and Insanity Commercial Part I and NYC Trip and Insanity Commercial Part II.  After much anticipation, the commercial aired nationally over this past weekend and I'm so excited to share it with all of you.  The excitement is not strictly because I was featured in the commercial, but the hard work that paid off with my weight loss story.



I also want to share today's OOTD, which is a perfect look for Valentine's Day.  Pairing neutral colors with neon pink and sequins creates a fun yet classy look that remains romantic for this type of occasion. 

What I'm Rocking:
H&M blazer & lace dress
ALDO heels
F21 earrings & ring
Guess watch
