Its a good protein after workout or on any days.
I didn't see any weight lose by using this product but Its a good protein after workout or on any days. Since its a small size, you have to stack up every two/three weeks.

Can I take GNC Lean Shake as my dinner?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The GNC Lean Shake is intended to be a meal replacement.
i just had a baby, im breastfeeding, is this safe. if not what can i use that is safe to lose weight
A shopper on Aug 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Taken as recommended this product (GNC Lean Shake) is safe to use while breastfeeding.
Is this product safe to take when you are nursing??
A shopper on Sep 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The GNC Lean Shake has no ingredients that would be harmful to take while nursing, however, remember that you burn a significant number of calories nursing and if your body isn't taking in enough calories and fluids, your milk supply will be affected. I would recommend using GNC Lean Shake along with a small meal (or even a small bowl of almonds or other source of healthy calories) and not as a stand-alone meal replacement, especially if you are exclusively nursing a baby who is too young to have solid food. Remember to drink plenty of liquids throughout the day as well.
If you drink two shakes a day would how many days would one container last?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The GNC Lean Shake would last 16 days if you take 2 scoops (two shakes) a day.
I was using a protein shake for the first wk of my diet and noticed I gained weight. I went to GNC and was recommended the Lean Shake. I have been drinking one for breakfast, one for lunch and eating a well balanced dinner. In between the shakes I eat a small health snack, i.e. celery, matos crack with a little veggie cream cheese. I also workout 5 days a week doing cardio every day and weight training 3 days out of that five as well. I'm doing a total body toning routine. I have only loss 3 pounds. I'm I doing something wrong. I'm sure I'm loosing some inches and I feel great and lighter but my goal was to lose 15 lbs. by summer. Am I doing something wrong. Please advise!
A shopper on Jan 21, 2010
BEST ANSWER: I'm no expert but it sounds to me like you're probably both burning fat and gaining muscle. The catch with that is that muscle is heavier than fat and you could theoretically workout like you are and gain weight, but still be in better shape because less of your weight would be fat and more of your weight would be muscle.
Is this shake the same as a protein shake? does it help build muscle after workouts? And is it ok to drink this right before going to bed?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This formula does contain a lot of protein, but instead of building muscle after a workout, it is designed as a weight-loss shake. People use this as a meal replacement. This can be taken at any time, as it contains no ingredients which would interfere with sleep, such as caffeine or ginseng.
Hi,I'm about to start training and I was wondering if this would be good for me? also if you can drink this with milk instead of water?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: If you are training to lose weight then this drink is just for you. It contains fibre that gives you a feeling of a full stomach. It has protein for building muscle without you gaining weight. A practical meal and exercise plan is also included. No customer has complained of any side effects so you can take it with milk if it suits your taste. You can lose 10 pounds or more if you are patient enough.

Is there supposed to be a scoop in this container?? If not, how much do I use with 8-10oz of water?

Is this shake only to work out? What if i dont work out??
A shopper on Apr 19, 2010
BEST ANSWER: No. The Lean Shake is to replace meals. It is not a protein drink and is not ment as one. The Lean Shake has all the nurtrients of a full meal but yet only a little over 150 calories. When you buy the lean shake the sales associate (if you go into the store) should give advice about the use of this product and if you buy it online the Lean shake will come with a meal/workout plan. It is simple to follow and taste GREAT!!

I started taking Lean Shake about a week ago to replace my dinner..I dont replace it everyday.I am still breastfeeding and would like to know is it safe to consume it?Will it affect my baby?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There is no specific warning not to use this while breastfeeding, but because your milk supply depends on your total caloric intake each day, using this as a meal replacement only provides 180 calories and may not be enough to sustain your milk supply for the baby.

How many lean shakes can you drink per day?
A shopper on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I just replace one meal in the afternoon with this shake
Can you drink this for all three meals of the day?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not 100% sure but I wouldn't recommend it and here is why
Although these shakes technically offer you all the nutrients that you need, eating fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains is still important for a balanced diet.
Also, I'm assuming you don't want to be on these shakes for the rest of your life so it might be harder to keep weight off after you return to your normal diet because your body will not be used to getting any food. Hope that helps!
