Eat Well: Weight Management

Clearing Up The Confusion: Lean Shake™ and my 2nd step…

Thumbs Up!
Thumbs Down!

I like to think of things in systems as a way of organizing my progress.  Well if I’m really honest, it just needs to make logical sense in my mind, skip the fancy schpancy stuff.  After my 7 Day Fast Loss Kit I’m onto the second phase of this weight loss journey.

What is my thought process for the next step? I prioritize my goals by asking this question:

What was the most important component of the Total Lean™ 7 Day Fast Loss Kit?

The Daily Diet Pak can help me burn some serious calories at the gym.  The Pre-Diet Cleanse will help my body excrete toxins.  The protein in Lean Shake™ helps to fuel my body and helps me to feel full.

Personally, I can TOTALLY be a mindless eater so I’m choosing the Lean Shake™ as my aide for this next step. Lean Shake™ is the most important to me because I can burn a lot of calories at the gym but if I consume more calories than I am burning in a day, all of that work was for nothing. Therefore, Lean Shake™ is my next priority.

Lean Shake™ makes sense as the perfect meal replacement product for my hectic life.  Multiple studies have shown that meal replacements are a convenient and effective way to reduce calorie intake when used as part of a structured diet and exercise program.  For me, controlling my calorie intake can be difficult.  By using meal replacements and eating smaller but frequent meals throughout the day I am able to make better choices and control my appetite.  Also important to note, the fiber found in Lean Shake™ can help to increase feelings of fullness, making it easier to avoid diet-busting temptations and cravings.  Plus, the protein helps me to maintain the lean muscle mass that I am working so hard for in the gym!

So which Lean Shake™ to choose?  Here are the two products:

Lean Shake™ (we’ll use Vanilla as an example)

  • Proven effective for weight loss (meal replacement)
  • 9g of high quality protein
  • Supports lean muscle mass and healthy metabolism
  • Includes scientifically designed meal and exercise plan
  • 180 calories
  • 8g fiber
  • Clinically researched

Lean Shake™ 25 (again French Vanilla as an example)

  • 25g of high quality protein
  • 8g of fiber to help you feel fuller and satisfied
  • 24 vitamins and minerals
  • 200 calories
  • Healthy meal replacement to support lean muscle tone and healthy metabolism
  • Scientifically formulated

So what does it boil down to for me?  When I’m exercising 4 or more days/wk I will reach for the Lean Shake™ 25 post-workout.  When I’m not exercising and need a quick meal replacement/snack, I reach for the regular Lean Shake™.

Both are great choices but for snacks and meals I like to reach for Lean Shake™ as it has fewer calories and still has protein to help hold me over.  Post-exercise I want something that’s going to help replenish my muscles and feed by body for recovery which is why I’ll reach for Lean Shake™ 25.  That’s just me though.

A few helpful tips:

  1. Decide your top priority and find a solution for your top weakness, it’s a great starting point.  It doesn’t have to be confusing, overwhelming, or super detailed.
  2. You’ll be more successful doing a few things VERY well versus a lot of things with average effort.
  3. Target 1-3 things at a time, master those, and build onto that.
  4. Last resort -> KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid

What about you? How do you make your product decisions or form your weight loss method?
