Description
  • Healthy meal replacement proven effective for weight loss
  • 9 grams of high quality protein
  • Supports lean muscle mass and a healthy metabolism
  • Includes a scientifically designed meal and exercise plan


GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ is complete with well-balanced ratios of high quality protein, vitamins, minerals and fat. Proven effective for weight loss, Lean Shake can also help support normal, healthy cholesterol levels, lean muscle mass and a healthy metabolism. When used in conjunction with the provided meal and exercise plan, this delicious oat-based shake can help you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. It features a patented fiber-rich blend that increases your feeling of fullness and satiety so you eat less and wait longer between meals. This combination of functionally-specific fibers includes oat beta-glucan. Oat beta-glucan is a naturally-occurring and powerful soluble fiber found in oat bran; it is known as a low-glycemic fiber that supports normal, healthy blood glucose levels. Oat bran and fiber have a slower and more sustained effect on blood sugar and energy levels than when consuming high-glycemic carbohydrate food such as pastries, breads or pasta.

Lean Shake offers a good method of weight loss over time. Combine the use of convenient Lean Shake with the enclosed meal and exercise plan. Just two delicious shakes per day, plus a few simple lifestyle changes and you can see a totally new you.

Fuel your body more effectively, and get the most from your workouts
Do you ever feel you're slogging through your workouts, barely able to complete what you've planned, and anxious to hit the showers? Or maybe you've wondered how you might take the next step, fuel your body more effectively, and get the most "bang for your buck" from your workouts. Either way, a great place to start is with the basics, and one of the most basic nutrients for optimal athletic performance is protein.

The A, B, Cs of protein and performance

Muscles are made of protein, so it's no surprise that protein is vital to enhancing their performance. Knowing what type, how much, and when to fit protein into your daily routine is the key to getting the most from this important nutrient.

Protein particulars

"Wheying" your options

For repairing hardworking muscles after a cardio or resistance training ("weight lifting") workout, nothing beats whey protein. Whey comes from dairy and allows your muscles to refuel effectively. Whey protein is found in powder form and comes in a variety of flavors, making it easy to incorporate into your diet. It can be stirred into yogurt, added to a smoothie, or mixed vigorously with water or another liquid in a lidded container.

The body best absorbs protein when eaten in amounts ranging from 15 to 30 grams in a single meal or snack. Unless you're a serious body-builder, there's no benefit to eating more than 30 grams of protein at one time.

Whey protein makes its way into muscles most efficiently when taken immediately after a workout, ideally within 30 minutes. Eating whey with carbohydrates promotes the movement of the protein from your bloodstream into your muscles as well. Aim for a ratio of 1 gram of protein for every 2 to 4 grams of carbohydrate.

As an example, combine whey powder to provide about 15 grams of protein in a blender with a banana, ice, and water. A large banana adds around 30 grams of carbohydrate and most whey powders contain a bit of carbohydrate as well. This gives you a finished smoothie with 2 to 3 grams of carbohydrate for every gram of protein-an ideal ratio.

HMB power

Amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Hydroxy-methyl butyrate, or HMB, is a breakdown product of leucine, of of the essential amino acids that are used as building blocks of protein. Studies have shown that HMB can improve strength and help the body maintain muscle mass. Ideally, HMB is used in conjunction with strength training to obtain the most benefit; it is not used to improve cardiovascular athletic performance.

Our bodies can make some HMB, but it isn't found in significant amounts in most foods, so taking a supplement is the best way to get enough HMB to enhance a resistance training routine.

The optimal amount of HMB is about 3 grams per day, but there isn't agreement on when to take it for best benefit. In order to avoid having HMB "compete" for absorption with whey protein, try taking this supplement in the morning, at bedtime, or about 15 to 30 minutes before a workout.

Final protein pointers

Be sure you're eating a good quality, well-balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, fruit, legumes (beans), and whole grains. Without these essential foods, all the whey protein and HMB in the world isn't going to do you any good. Think about creating a nutrient network in your body; they don't work well in isolation.

Also keep in mind that while whey and HMB are considered safe for most people, there are some who should not use these supplements, including people with impaired kidney or liver function. If you have questions about whether whey and HMB are safe for you, ask your doctor or pharmacist for guidance.

Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Strawberries & Cream:

This is my first time using this product and I'm not generally a powder person but the manager recommended this to me and I got it without reading any reviews. I get tired of the staple chocolate and vanilla flavors so I went with strawberries and cream. Before I tried it, I read all the terrible reviews and was tempted to return it but decided to just try it for myself and I'm glad I did. I put the serving amount in my blender bottle with cold water. I definitely suggest putting a couple of ice cubes in or just making sure you drink it cold but I would suggest that for any protein drink. The only thing I'm not a fan of is that there is a slight aftertaste but I think all protein shakes have that so it's nothing abnormal. I'd buy it again.

    Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Strawberries & Cream:

    I have other flavors of total lean - this one is my LEAST favorite. I use frozen fruit and almond milk for my total lean flavors - with strawberries and cream it doesn't really help. I've noticed (for me)there's a bitter after taste, so I tried to counter balance this by adding a little honey or agave and that did help - however, I won't be buying another canister when this one is finally done.

    Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Strawberries & Cream:

    I love the Lean Shake: Swiss Chocolate - After two weeks of using it, with effective results, I decided to try another flavor so that I wouldn't get tired of drinking shakes and could stick to my diet, BIG MISTAKE! The Strawberry is absolutely dreadful! It takes like the cheap medicine that Doctors would make you take as a kid.

      I sampled my frozen lean shake 25 (left it in the freezer) it was not as bad as I thought after reading all the post here. The two that I will continue to purchase will be the swiss chocolate or cinnamon bun are best

            This particular flavour tastes wierd, sort of like pepto bismol. Extremely weird for a shake that needs to be taken several times a day. Will NEVER buy this flavour again, do NOT recommend.

              I Love the RIch Chocolate Lean Shake and wanted to switch things up so I tried the Strawberry. The first time I tried it I thought maybe I put too much because it tasted so bad. The next time I tried it I put some real strawberries in it to see if that would help. I ended up throwing away the cup and the shake I had made because the smell was horrible. The worst part is I can't find my receipt to exchange it for one that I know tastes good and this stuff isn't cheap. I will switch products if I can not change this and with this many bad reviews why do they sell it!!!!!!!
