My go to protein drink. ??
Lean shake is my favorite go to protein drink. I drink 1-3 daily since weight loss surgery. Amazing variety of flavors that i love! Especially the seasonal ones. Smooth, and less chalky then other ready made shakes on the market. Orange cream tastes like a melted creamsicle. Yummy!

The right one!
The taste is great (Swiss Chocolate)! It’s not too sweet as it sounds. It doesn’t make me bloated as some do. I totally recommend this to those who are looking for high-protein supplement without the extra carbs. For those on the go, this is the one!

Warning, constipation alert! But very good flavor
I so wanted to love these, as I tried these back in October and had no problems or concerns. The taste of each flavor is excellent. However, I get crazy constipation to the point it would not pass. I've sensed moved on to a new protein drink and have no issues. I have no clue what was in these drinks that caused the constipation however I did not want to keep doing that to my body. If they do not cause me severe constipation, I will still be using them because I did drop weight quickly on these. And they satisfy my Hunger for a few hours.

How is this lactose free if it contains milk?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Lactose isn't milk, lactose is the sugar in milk just like fructose is the type of sugar in fruits, and lactose can be either removed, or (and this is actually misleading) can be left in the product, and then be accompanied by a lactose enzyme called "lactase" artificially added. This is misleading because they can put "lactose free" on it, but all it really is is the lactose and the enzyme "lactase" that is added to "cancel" out the it's not technically "lactose free" but apparently close enough that they can legally get away with it.

Why do the Ready-to-Drink Lean Shakes contain only 6g Carbohydrates per serving, but the canister's serving size of two scoops contains THIRTYg carbs per serving?
A shopper on Jun 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Comparing the two, it appears that the ready-to-drink version contains more fat than the powdered version. GNC likely had to add fat in order to increase the shelf-life or palatability of the ready-to-drink shake. They thus decreased the amount of carbohydrates to maintain the low calorie count.
