I saw the sign and it opened up my mind….that's the first thing that I remember from the opening scene from Pitch Perfect (spoiler alert: there is massive projectile vomiting). Aca scuse me? That's...
You Know You Need a Cinchspiration!
Did you know that 65% of adults in the United States are overweight?
Did you know that fatigue, hunger and food cravings commonly associated with typical diets are one of major reasons people just give up?
Most people have struggled with weight in their lives at one time or another. I never really struggled until my mid to late twenties. Before then, I was athletic enough that I didn't have to worry about watching what I ate. However, that means that I probably just didn't have great eating habits.
I am pretty sure that I have tried the majority of those fad diets out there.
Cabbage Soup? Check.
Dieter's tea? Check.
Cookie diet? Check.
Remember the Valley Girl Diet from the 80's? Breath mints and water? Did that one too. It did nothing for me except give me extremely fresh breath and possibly hydrate me.
A few months ago, I was thrilled to try out Cinch® by Shaklee.
WHAT IS CINCH
The Cinch Inch Loss Plan is different. It addresses one of the primary reasons why other diets fail. Cinch provides you a plan to lose the right way. Instead of helping you lose weight from fat and muscle, the Cinch Inch Loss Plan is Powered by Leucine™ to help preserve muscle while you lose weight from fat.† Preserving muscle mass also prevents your metabolism from dropping. The Cinch Inch Loss Plan with leucine is scientifically formulated to help you lose weight, lose inches, and break the cycle of perpetual dieting.
The Cinch Inch Loss Plan is designed for real life, so it also addresses the physical and emotional challenges that come along with your weight control efforts. With proprietary formulas, the Cinch products will help you control your hunger, boost your energy, and keep you feeling satisfied. Plus, you’ll get healthy personalized menus specific to your body’s needs and your individual preferences.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND CINCH
Shaklee scientists have relied on their long history of working with athletes to gain a scientific insight as to what works for safe and effective weight loss. Instead of creating weight loss from water and muscle like with most diet programs, the Cinch Inch Loss Plan works by helping to preserve lean body mass and promoting weight loss from fat.* Preserving lean body mass also prevents your metabolic rate, or ability to burn calories, from dropping. The Cinch Inch Loss Plan provides products powered by the essential amino acid leucine. Recent scientific research indicates that leucine may play a special role in weight loss because it acts as a signal for protein synthesis in muscle tissue. As a result, leucine helps your body preserve muscle mass while you lose weight from fat. The Cinch program has undergone preliminary clinical testing that indicated positive results for weight loss, fat loss, inch loss, and preservation of fat-free mass.
*Based on the results of a preliminary clinical study and skin fold caliper measurements to estimate lean body mass and fat mass.

HOW CINCH WORKED FOR ME
I love Cinch and in fact, I need to order it for myself to do again. It is well worth the money and very easy to incorporate into your life.
It has been several months since I first tried it and the inches/pounds have slowly come off. But here is the thing, they have STAYED off. I didn't gain the weight back.
I lost about three inches in my stomach area. An inch on each thigh. 1/2 inch on my arms. I have done pretty well.
I was never hungry and had plenty of energy all the time. This was not at all the same experience that I have had on previous diets.
