Q. What is LEAN BODY ?
A. LEAN BODY is an instant nutrient dense, high protein meal replacement drink mix that provides your body with the nutritional support it needs to build muscle and burn fat. LEAN BODY works well for athletes and people with active lifestyles by providing the nutritional assurance needed to meet their body's increased nutritional demands.
Q. Is LEAN BODY a food or a supplement?
A. Both. LEAN BODY is a food since it provides a precise ratio of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids and nutrients. It is a supplement because it provides concentrated amounts of nutrients that might ordinarily go amiss in the average diet. Think of LEAN BODY as a concentrated source of food nutrients.
Q. Can I digest 45 grams of protein in one meal?
A. The amount of protein that can be consumed in one meal depends upon various factors including body weight, LEAN BODY mass, and metabolic factors. Typically, the larger the individual, the more protein that individual will require in his daily diet. The average American male should have no problem digesting and utilizing 40-50 grams of protein in one meal. In fact, this is equivalent to the amount of protein found in a large steak or chicken breast. We generally recommend at least 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day. Because protein is the only macro nutrient that is rich in the nutrient nitrogen, which is essential to muscular support and metabolism, we feel that getting a little extra is actually a good thing as long as the person is in good health and drinking adequate amounts of water. Women using LEAN BODY may wish to use only half of a packet of LEAN BODY per sitting or use the new LEAN BODY For Her instant toning nutrition packets from Labrada.
Q. Should I consume LEAN BODY with whole foods?
A. Absolutely. LEAN BODY works best with a diet consisting of nutritionally sound whole food intake.
Q. How should I take LEAN BODY?
A. LEAN BODY comes in convenient pre-measured packets that are easy to use. Just tear open a packet and mix the contents into 16 oz. of ice-cold water to make a smooth delicious shake. Drink 2-3 LEAN BODY shakes each day, with meals or in between meals.
Q. What is the nutritional profile of LEAN BODY?
A. One serving of LEAN BODY (one packet) contains 45 grams of protein, 28 grams of carbohydrate and less than 2 grams of fat for a total of 300 calories. LEAN BODY is low in sodium and sugars. It contains no added salt or sugar.
Q. What is the protein source in LEAN BODY?
A. LEAN BODY contains a proprietary blend of proteins called LeanPro. LeanPro consists of Cross Flow Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate, Ion Exchange Whey Protein Isolate, Cross Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate, Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate Peptides, Milk Protein Isolate, and Caseinate. LeanPro provides all of the essential amino acids necessary to support muscular function.
Q. Why doesn't LEAN BODY contain only whey protein as its primary protein source?
A. When comparing the efficacy of various proteins, the human metabolism must be considered. Before a protein can be utilized, it must be digested and absorbed, making the rate at which it becomes digested a critical part of the effectiveness of the dietary protein. Recent scientific studies have shown that whey protein is very rapidly digested and absorbed. It is a well-known fact that athletes and highly active people subject their body to stress levels that are higher than average. Because stress decreases digestive ability by increasing gut motility (transient time of food in the digestive tract), taking too much of a whey protein-only product could conceivably stress the gut even more. LeanPro mitigates this situation with its content of casein and milk protein isolates.
Q. Does LEAN BODY contain aspartame?
A. Yes. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener found in many common foods that you consume every day. One of the most common examples of foods that contain aspartame are diet soft drinks. Millions of cans of diet soft drinks are consumed every year without incident. Extensive research has been conducted on aspartame by the FDA which has concluded that aspartame is safe for human consumption. Unless a person is born with a sensitivity to the amino acid, phenylalanine, aspartame is not a health concern.
Q. Can LEAN BODY be used as part of the now popular high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets?
A. Yes. Although LEAN BODY provides 45 grams of protein per serving, it contains only 28 grams of carbohydrate, roughly the equivalent of the amount of carbohydrates found in one slice of bread. The LEAN BODY user should modify his or her carbohydrate intake accordingly to suit his dietary needs and objectives.
Q. Is LEAN BODY beneficial for women?
A. Yes. Because the metabolism of the woman is such that it tends to facilitate the storage of fat, LEAN BODY offers a practical dietary alternative for meal planning. LEAN BODY not only tastes great but also satiates the appetite, allowing the dieter to avoid the hunger pangs associated with low calorie diets. Additionally, LEAN BODY provides nutritional assurance not found in normal low calorie diets, which frequently lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies along with loss of metabolic rate. LEAN BODY can be an indispensable dietary tool for women who have had problems dieting and regaining weight in the past.
Q. How many times per day should I use LEAN BODY ?
A. For best results, we recommend that you use a packet of LEAN BODY 2-3 times per day.
