I have to admit. I’m a little biased when it comes to GNC. I’ve always been a big fan of their products, so I’ve been dying to try out GNC Total Lean meal replacement shake. I had my fingers crossed in hopes that it wouldn’t disappoint. Here’s my review after the taste test.
You can get GNC Lean shakes for about $33.00 online. That gets you 16 servings, which is about $2.00 per meal. It’s a steal considering all the benefits that are packed into this shake. So GNC Lean gets a big thumbs up from me on its price.
The great thing about GNC Lean shake is that it comes in a variety of flavors. Chocolate, French Vanilla, and Cookies & Cream are just a few of the many options, so you’ll never get bored. I decided to go with more of a fruity flavor — Blueberries & Cream. Even though it sounds a little suspicious, it was really yummy. It tastes just like a milkshake and goes down super easy. It was so good that I’m actually thinking about trying out other flavors too.
APPETITE BLOCKER: A
This shake has 13 grams of fiber (8 grams of dietary fiber and 5 grams of soluble fiber). Together that really helps fend off your hunger. After drinking this shake for breakfast, I literally didn’t feel hungry again until lunchtime. Although just as a disclaimer, I did mix additional fruit into my shake. So that may have helped to curb my appetite. Although at the end of the day, I was still happy with the shake as an appetite blocker.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE: A-
One serving of GNC Total Lean has 180 calories. That’s actually pretty good. Not great, but still pretty good. There’s 9 grams of protein and only 4 grams of sugar. It also has 20% of your daily value for a number of different vitamins and minerals such as: Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Copper. Even though that’s a good percentages for a meal replacement shake, I do wish the nutrient level was a little bit higher.
Overall, the taste, the nutritional value, and the appetite blocker make GNC Lean shake worthwhile.
