CBD Hemp Oil Q&A
We have been getting questions about CBD oil lately – so I asked our friends at Viva Oils to help us out with a little CBD Q & A. Thank you to Romy Campbell, RN, Read more…
The plan is not a diet. It is a way of changing how you eat - for life. You discover the foods that are healthy for you.
We offer one-on-one guidance and on-line support groups.
Elizabeth and I have become quite good friends. She came to me suffering from Crohn's, digestion/malabsorption, PCOS, Hashimotos and adrenal fatigue. As she said just today, "You were the first to listen (after dozens of doctors and thousands of dollars), understand and champion me through to the side of health. ".
It took a couple of months to get serious resolutions to her issues, but she kept at it and still does. She knew from day 1, she was on a healing path. Now she is leading an incredible life, giving back to everyone she knows! You go girl!
Hi Lyn! I saw you on on Fox News -- hit me and I bought your book.I have had MS since 2001 and since ms is a disease of our immune system what you were saying about the right way to eat made sense to me. With ms your immune system the less active it is the better. So, I thought if I can find the foods that will not cause my immune system to act up it may work. I have lost so far 12 kilos which is about 25lbs. I feel great, my symptoms with my disease have been pretty quiet now.I'm an ex-Olympic athlete and was in the Los Angles Olympics in 1984. I can now ride a bike for days!
My Mom first took me to the MD in grade 7 (20 yrs ago!) about the horrible eczema around my eyes...he and all the other doctors I have seen over the years swore it was a product/makeup I was using causing an allergic reaction. I am fortunate to live in a huge city with access to the "best specialists" in this field...I have literally seen all the top doctors and went for every allergy test possible. NOT ONE would even entertain the thought that it was something in my diet-they would act like there was a 👻 ghost in the room if I brought up that I suspected that. Funny thing...I have ate a vegan/plant based diet for almost 1 year now and was someone that used to be obsessed with working out and eating your typical "bro diet" with tons of egg whites/protein powders etc 🤢 and within 4 days of eliminating it...my eczema COMPLETELY went away and not even a speck of dry/red tissue has come back!! I am ecstatic and fully believe if you have this problem go see a naturopath or holistic nutritionist and educate yourself on eating an anti-inflammatory diet for YOU ----->if you struggle with this I would strongly recommend @lyngenetplan books-they helped me so much! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK-I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM YOU
“I had high blood pressure which even with meds was high and I had fat all over my liver, cholesterol problems, arthritis, bladder control problems, a hernia, a history of tachycardia and generally felt crummy each evening.
My cousin told me that she and her friends in LA had had big success with your Plan book. Even though I live in the Swiss Alps and could not get many of the things in the menus, I still wanted to try.
Well, from the very first day of the cleanse, I already felt extremely better. I was astonished that the change was that fast - the first day!!! It was only a matter of changing the food. So, I continued to feel better and better and better as the weeks and months went on.
After four months, I had the doctor do a complete blood test panel and ultra sound to check the liver and all the fat was gone off my liver!!!! And he said to stop the meds, blood pressure is now normal. All the other problems went away, the bladder control, of course, without all that weight, the arthritis.
I went from about 193 lbs (at 5 ft 4 inches) down to 126/127 between September of last year till February of this year, and have kept it off.
Being in better shape inspired me to also take control of my life in another way. I hunted around for a university that would take a 65 year old lady on to do a PhD and in March the University of Amsterdam accepted me into their program, so I have been busily working on a doctorate as well!”
love her, what a rock star. And YOU’RE a rock star ⭐️ too “Please. Don’t count your calories and starve. You should never have to be hungry. I can preach because I did it. I was that girl that kept a sheet of paper in my pocket and recorded every calorie I consumed. See that girl on the left and middle? She was hungry. Not the one on the right!
Please don’t exercise yourself to death. Too much exercise is NOT GOOD FOR YOU. Did I hear an “Amen”? Again. I can preach because I was there. At one point I hit the gym twice a day. Still. No budge. You can literally cause your body more stress than good.
I eat a TON. Seriously. I LOVE TO EAT. I have found that 10-12 minutes of exercise every other day works great for me! Guess what. I can eat a steak & French fries and lose weight. If those are friendly foods for you, you can too!! If I eat oatmeal (which I used to LOVE), I gain 2 lbs OVERNIGHT.
Like wine? Great! Have it nightly! Like chocolate? Great! You can probably have that too!
It’s SO much MORE than weight loss! I used to get migraines. Awful migraines. Gone! Eczema. Gone! Thyroid issues, joint problems, etc. There is SO much healing your body desperately wants to do, and CAN do. It’s never too far gone.
If you know me at all, you know I’m honest. (Sometimes, brutally. 🤷🏼♀️) I wouldn’t recommend something I didn’t believe in. I believe in this just as sure as I do the second coming of Christ.
"This was me at 250 pounds (the left) and the one on the right is me today. I’ve been sick, fat, afraid, and I was way too in love with my victim story. With the help of alternative medicine, and a book that changed me life, called The Metabolism Plan
Her book kickstarted my life. Not only did I lose weight, but it opened me up to my life plan, which is serving others as a health coach and becoming an Ayurvedic medicine practitioner.
Without this book, I’m not sure what I would have done. I lost 100 pounds on The Plan, learned about critical thyroid issues and reversed major symptoms like hair loss, hair growth on my face and abdomen, and of course, significant weight gain.
I feel gratitude everyday for Lyn and her team. If I can do it, so can you! “
I've lost over 24 pounds on The Plan. I have tried for over 20 years to lose weight. I went through every weight loss program you can imagine. I followed every one of them and I would lose five or so pounds and then it would all stop. Everyone asked me the same question, "Are you sure you are following the program?" I would leave in tears because I always followed the programs. Then by a miracle I found an article about Lyn in a magazine. All those years I had been eating great diet foods like salmon and green beans, thinking I was doing what was right. Now I know that I am reactive to those foods and many others. My blood pressure is the lowest in my life! My psoriasis is gone! The IBS I suffered all of my adult life is gone. The Plan has become a way of life for me.
A big thank you for helping me lose 75lbs for my wedding! I had a blast, and looked amazing in my wedding dress! Cindy, I can not begin to thank you for your continued love, support, & encouragement on this difficult journey! With gratitude, happiness, and appreciation!
The book was a lifesaver! I was at risk for type 2 diabetes and my cholesterol was 246 and triglycerides were 194. I started The Plan in January after seeing you on Dr Oz. I have lost 66 pounds so far and my husband has lost 83 lbs. My cholesterol is now 163 and my triglycerides are 112. I feel good enough to exercise, my joints no longer hurt. This doesn't even feel like a diet, we love the food and my in-laws are now on board. Thanks so much I know this has saved me from a life of medications!
In 20 days on The Plan, I lost 15 lbs and my cholesterol dropped from 250 to 197! I feel great and I am continuing to maintain my weight loss three months later. My overall eating patterns have changed to reflect the guidelines of The Plan and I can quickly recover when I make other choices. The opportunity to enjoy tasty new foods, have some red wine and dark chocolate, and see immediate results helped me stay committed. My wife was following The Plan at the same time, which was an enormous help.
So last night my husband and I found ourselves explaining The Plan to friends of ours, as we’ve done plenty over the last month. It was the first time, he described it and explained it and he started and ended with; this is in fact THE best month of our marriage. She feels good, she’s happy. This is absolutely the best month we’ve ever had together. We’ve been together for 14 years. The Plan hasn’t just changed how I eat; it’s changed how I am. Thank you Lyn. So much.
I had just beat chronic Lyme Disease and was going back to the gym since I had packed on an extra 35 lbs. My doctor wanted to put me on a statin to lower my cholesterol. I thought I was eating well, but little did I know that a lot of the foods I thought were good for me were actually inflammatory. Going to the gym not only allowed me to lose 10 lbs., but with The Lyn-Genet Plan, I was able to easily achieve my goal weight and drop my cholesterol to a level not requiring any medication in 3 weeks!
Lost 10 lbs in 7 days: I don't need to be on as much blood pressure medicine anymore...which is a good thing. Also, when in the hospital they tested my sugar - they've completely taken me off the time release insulin I take at night and reduced my daily insulin by 2/3 - now that's what I call results!
I never thought losing weight would be this easy, you're right this is not a diet but a new way of looking at food. It has changed my relationship with food! I'm down 30 lbs in two months and the weight is still coming off. P.S. Love the new menus! They are easy to prepare and taste like gourmet food!
I’ve been a planner for a full year now & the weight has stayed off, the auto immune is stable and under control and I feel and look better at 51 than I did at 21, 31 or 41! You are a genius! Thanks.
I turned to The Plan as a mom of young twins who had put her own health on hold. After five years of hormonal fluctuations due to infertility treatments and two years at home with my kids, I could not regulate my menstrual cycles, and turned to food for comfort. I'd go months without a cycle and this, along with my dependency in sugar, created huge fluctuations in my mood. It wasnt always easy but I found many foods I loved and felt great. I lost the weight, regulated my cravings and was at my lowest weight since probably middle school. Three months into The Plan I naturally started my menstrual cycle for the first time in OVER FIVE YEARS. The Plan goes much deeper than food or any diet. It's about your health, physical and emotional. It's restored my health in ways beyond my expectations.
If anyone has ever doubted that they could lose weight in a healthy way and actually be able to maintain it, then you must come and see Lyn for a nutrition consultation. I have gone through many diet fads that worked for a quick fix, but always struggled with how to keep the weight off permanently without depriving myself of the foods my body needs. When I went to see Lyn, I didn't know how amazing this life style change would be. I lost 20 pounds in 2 months, have learned so much about the way my body digests and processes different foods. I not only feel good but I also feel so much more in control of what I am putting into my body. The best part is that Lyn works with you step by step to help you figure this out - so you’re not alone in the process.
I had postpartum pregnancy pounds that I was aiming to shed. The cleansing diet addressed this issue and many more. However, the most remarkable aspect is its positive impact on my family's life - it has totally transformed our dietary habits. We have learned what our bodies are sensitive to, what makes us gain weight, and the key perhaps, how to keep it off in a natural way! I have also been advised on herbal/homeopathic medicines to treat insomnia, cold sores and allergy, and I have achieved excellent results without having to resort to any kind of chemicals found in traditional medicines, which were not even helping me out.
Thank you so much for the 3 phase menu plan! I have kept off the weight and I feel amazing. Today, for example, I am wearing a pair of pants that I last wore when I was 25!!!!
I have been a migraine sufferer for all my life. Seeing Lyn-Genet has kept my migraines from coming back! Thanks to her work and the techniques she taught me I have only had 1 migraine in an entire year!
I gained 50 lbs my first pregnancy, thanks to The Plan I only gained 30 lbs with my second! Lyn-Genet also helped me with my postpartum plan. I lost all the weight without affecting my milk supply!

Sarah Frost Crew grew up in a family that emphasized nutrition and the healing powers of food. She works as a teacher and lecturer to change behavior patterns that cause physical and emotional distress. Sarah turned to The Plan at age 30 because she was taking 5 medications for moderate postpartum depression and Myofacial Pain Syndrome. Four months after finishing the 20 day plan, Sarah was able to come off of all 5 medications and remains off of them 7 years later.
A turning point came when Sarah’s oldest child, 7 yr old Emma, had daily pain and was diagnosed with ADHD and restless leg syndrome. Her prognosis was a regimen of serious medications. Sarah contacted Lyn-Genet, who walked Sarah and Emma through a custom Plan designed for Emma. Within 6 months, Emma was out of pain, no longer recommended for medications, and is now achieving awards for her focus and performance.
She holds a BA of Interdisciplinary Studies emphasizing Abnormal Behavior in children and behavior therapy, and is working on her Masters degree in christian counseling. She is also continuing her education with the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine. Sarah has taken her lifelong commitment to health and empowerment to help people worldwide.
In college, my life changed completely; I found myself sick often and very easily. Most my time was spent in a doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or hospital. After trying the conventional path for a few years, I turned to the plan with unexplained chronic sinusitis, ear infections, strep throat, chronic nausea and vomiting, severe acid reflux, digestive diseases, severe migraines and eczema. Let me tell you- I thought I WAS eating healthy. I had tried, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, even training for a 5k.
On the Metabolism plan, I not only conquered my battle with constant illness, eradicated eczema, nearly eliminated all migraines; but I lost 65 lbs.!! All along, my body had been sending me signs and signals, I just didn’t understand. This is what I love most about the plan; It teaches you to speak the language of your body. If calories worked, we’d all be skinny! But it’s not about calories, self-control, deprivation or extreme exercise; it’s all about catering to what your body needs and wants… finding YOUR healthy.

Dr. Talbot is the designated physician for The Lyn-Genet Plan. As a family practice physician, board-certified with the American Board of Family Medicine, she is devoted to educating clients on the importance of healthy lifestyle and proper diet. Nicole’s enthusiastic approach to healthy living is what led her to The Plan. Nicole specializes in the treatment of hormone imbalance and strives to find natural remedies that solve the issue rather than masking symptoms. Being certified in Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is an integral part of aiding her patients with hormonal imbalances.
As a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I have experimented with every diet or fitness phenomenon out there. While I saw a benefit in some way or another with each, it wasn’t until I discovered The Plan that I realized by eliminating inflammation, you could have both weight loss and your HEALTH.
I found The Plan after several unsuccessful years trying to get pregnant using fertility treatments. At the time, I had Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disorder, major anxiety, awful PMS, amenorrhea and weight gain from the countless fertility medications. My usual methods of over-exercising and cutting calories/carbs were instead making me gain weight.
Within 45 days of starting The Plan, I lost weight, put my Hashimoto’s into remission (yep, you read that correctly), said goodbye to bloating, anxiety, insomnia AND started having a regular menstrual cycle ON MY OWN! The Plan works not just for weight loss, but to heal your whole body so you can live a long, HAPPY life.
I hold a BA degree in Exercise Science from Marquette University, various fitness certifications (ACE, Mat Pilates, Trigger Point, TRX, CPR) and a lifelong passion to heal the whole body inside out. I live just north of Chicago and spend my days chasing my twins around.
In 2005 I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from the North West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa. Armed with my degree I set out into the world to practice my new profession and quickly realized that I kept on seeing patients coming in to the pharmacy with prescriptions for weight loss products, high blood pressure medication, high cholesterol medication, sleeping disorders and most were diagnosed with insulin resistance or they were already diabetics. I never really struggled with my weight but I always suspected my thyroid was overactive but had no concrete evidence to support my theory. I have always focused on trying to live a balanced and healthy life and that meant eating well and becoming active as my dad is a diabetic and my mom had high cholesterol and an underactive thyroid.
Fast forward to 2019, a wonderful husband, two exceptional kids and a few unwanted kilograms later I started struggling trying to lose a mere 2-3 kg even when I followed the same exercise and eating plan I have always followed. My doctor diagnosed me with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) as it seemed to fit some of my symptoms, but I had to find answers to the question I have been trying to answer for years – fluttering heart, hair loss, high body temperature, anxiety, sleep disruption and irritation…it had to be my thyroid?
Scrolling through my favourite social media site, Instagram, I came across a woman who introduced me to The Metabolism Plan by Lyn-Genet Recitas. I was fascinated with the information she was sharing and knew this was the link – to take back control over your body you need to establish what is causing your body to react. I’ve been Planning for awhile now, and feel amazing! I am excited to be a Plan health coach health and find answers for YOU and to make kale fun!
Paula’s passion for the importance of food and its link to our health was sparked as a child growing up on a small family farm. Knowledge of this intimate connection grew with Paula, anchoring her adult life. Despite this, she continued to fight a war with obesity that had started her dieting as a child.
Desperate, she tried extreme exercise, including participation in a triathlon, marathon, P90-X training, and spin classes, nothing worked. Various ailments then began plaguing her, and she struggled with hormone imbalances.
In 2013, determined to find a solution, Paula discovered The Plan. Skeptical at first, she tried the program because it aligned with her personal research suggesting no one-size-fits-all way of eating could help everyone. It didn’t surprise her when The Plan produced results, but as she progressed it astounded her. Not only did the relentless weight finally melt away, but her health improved quickly as all those creeping ailments and hormone issues evaporated. She discovered that exercise, like food, needs to be customized to one’s body chemistry for best results.
Now Paula wants to share the optimal health and feeling of empowerment she achieved with The Plan. She is driven to help others finally succeed as she has, guiding them on their journey to become their best, happiest, healthiest selves.
I have worked in the conventional health field as an RN for over 10 years. After spending much time in the hospital setting as an ER nurse I decided to change my emphasis to a more holistic approach to health. I believe that prevention of the disease process is the key to health. I have always been intrigued by food and it’s healing properties. I read the Plan and immediately began to follow the book menus on my own. After 27 years as a vegetarian, it was obvious that an omnivore diet was better suited for me. All my menopausal weight dropped quickly and my psoriasis went into remission.
I feel so blessed to work with Lyn-Genet and the Plan family. It is very rewarding to be able to help people find their specific non- reactive foods and exercises to promote their best heath. The Plan works for everyone because no two individuals have the same genetic make up or dietary needs. Everyone can build their own specific Plan. I am currently working to bridge the gap between conventional and holistic medicine. One day I hope to be a holistic doctor.
Emily, who works full-time as a federal prosecutor and part-time as a yoga instructor, turned to The Plan after struggling with a life-time of migraines, allergies, weight gain and hormone imbalance associated with early onset peri-menopause. Amazed at the virtual disappearance of these symptoms when she started to eat the foods right for her chemistry and stopped excessive exercising, Emily quickly began to share The Plan with friends and colleagues and embarked on her journey to becoming a Plan health coach.
A graduate of Smith College, the Vanderbilt Law School, and Frog Lotus yoga teacher training, Emily’s goal is to support, guide, and nurture her clients, while empowering them with skills that will allow them to find the version of The Plan that is right for them. She is a sports nutritionist and an avid cook. Emily enjoys putting together Plan-friendly menus for all occasions, and has tons of time-saving tricks and delicious menu ideas to seamlessly integrate The Plan into anyone’s daily life.
I first heard good things about The Plan from a person I hold in high esteem. “If it worked for her it must be authentic” I bought The Plan books, read cover to cover and did The Plan for a year, on my own. I had never known what it was like to have a stomach “at ease” till I did The Plan. The stubborn pounds melted away and I was so happy that I had invested in myself. I take my love of Asian and Indian cooking to transform meals into culinary delights.
A year after I started The Plan a family member had breast cancer. I recommended that she work with Lyn-Genet and under Lyn’s guidance I learnt to tweak menus to suit her daily needs and her fading appetite. The Plan helped her battle the big C and I was inspired to study this anti-inflammatory protocol directly with Lyn-Genet to understand how foods can restore one to best health and best weight. One of the best things about being a health coach is that I have been able to build close relationships with my clients when guiding them through their Plan journey.
Dr. Armaghan (aka Armi) Azad discovered The Plan in perhaps the most fitting way in our modern-day society, on Instagram! After her own scare with elevated inflammatory markers in the blood, she decided to address her health by taking a more proactive approach and incorporating the concepts of functional medicine into her daily life.
As a family physician board-certified with the American Board of Family Medicine and having a Masters in Public Health under her belt, Dr. Azad has always felt that the key to living well was not just in treating disease, but in preventing it. Currently, Dr. Azad serves as an Attending physician at Riverside University Health Systems in both the Departments of Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine. She holds clinical faculty appointments through UCLA and Western University Of Health Sciences. Lastly, she is an Associate physician at Sleep Center Orange County in Irvine, California.
With over 15 years of experience in primary care and preventive medicine, with a special focus on sleep medicine, Dr. Azad has established herself as a respected physician in the community. Combining her love for medicine and her passion for cooking, she provides a unique take on how sleep, diet, inflammation, and overall health are all tied together.
Hi, I am Stacey and I am so incredibly happy to be here. After YEARS of poor health and bouncing from doctor to doctor with one diagnosis after the other, I felt overwhelmed. I had been trying to fix my health on my own through diet for nearly a decade. It was not until I was facing another surgery that promised to fix me (the same promise came with 3 prior surgeries) that I knew I had to find another way. Due to my health conditions I knew I would need a coach and was lucky enough to land Lyn-Genet herself.
Everything I thought I knew about diet and exercise went right out the window. I learned so much about my own body and how important it was to listen to those cues it was giving me. Through my work with her I was able to put my gastroparesis in remission, my migraines disappeared and my POTS was manageable for the first time ever. There is not enough thanks in this world for what The Plan did for my life and for my families. Sorting through all the misinformation about nutrition and health is a full time job.
I joined the Plan Team to increase exposure both in the US and abroad. Food truly is the medicine all of our bodies need and I feel very passionate about helping the tens of thousands of people who are in my old shoes.
Laura is a board-certified health and wellness coach, international speaker, author, and host of the Outspoken Nutrition podcast. Laura is passionate about living an energized life by understanding how to balance your body's natural rhythms with modern-day demands such as shift work, stress, and demanding lifestyles.
Laura learned about The Plan and Lyn-Genets' research while watching an episode of Dr.Oz. Finally, someone was voicing what the health and wellness industry wasn't, that we are all unique. Years later, Laura struggled with her weight even though she was going to CrossFit 4x a week and following a "healthy" diet. Laura turned to Lyn-Genet and discovered that all those healthy foods and rigorous workouts were her problems. She learned how to listen to her body's feedback and realized how powerful sleep, manchego cheese, and a little bit of tequila were for her. She has vowed to never do a single burpee again.
“The Plan reduces low grade inflammation which is the basis for premature aging, disease, and weight gain.”
