    Can substitute anything for the sweet potatoes on the 3 day cleanse? I don’t like them

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      At the end of your 3 day cleanse meal plan there’s a list of alternative options. You can choose from those. Lindsey kept the options limited on purpose because she specifically chose foods to help in the “cleansing” process.

        Where do you find the 3 day cleanse? I’m interested!! Thanks

    Can I use this as a meal replacement? I usually drink a shake instead of lunch each day. I just got my ideal lean in the mail today and cannot wait to try it out!

      It depends on your goals, but usually IdealLean Protein doesn’t have enough calories or nutrients to act as a meal replacement shake on it’s own. It makes a great pre- or post-workout meal when you add mix-ins but typically we don’t recommend it as a lunch replacement.

    I have tried the sample packs. The cake batter one is extremely sweet for me but chocolate and vanilla seem ok but has an after taste. I have looked on the labels and it says artificial and natural sweetners but no sugar added. I also read if it didn’t tast good you woundnt keep drinking it. I agree to some point. I also read that sucralose is the ingredient that makes it sweet. So my questions is 1 Is that what the after taste is and 2 sucralose is the same as sweetners such as splenda so is it good for you? 3 And how much is used: Is too much still not good for you? Most of those sweetners are no good. I just need more information Thanks

      The aftertaste could be due to the sweetener or that particular flavor. We do use sucralose which is the same thing as Splenda. It was approved by the FDA based on more than 110 studies showing that it is safe. Here’s a link to learn more: http://www.fda.gov/Food/IngredientsPackagingLabeling/FoodAdditivesIngredients/ucm397725.htm#Sucralose.

      We use less than one gram (90mg) of sucralose per serving in our IdealLean Protein. The acceptable daily intake suggested by the FDA is 5 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.

    I workout regularly and my muscle seems to just stay stable. I am looking to get more muscle out of my workouts. So is the Whey protein isolate something that I could benefit from and get more out of my workouts and build my muscle at the same time? Is it listed as Whey Protein Isolate when wanting to order?

        Thank you for the information on 1gm of Protein per #. I’ve been working so hard with no results, but realize that I’ve only been taking a 1/4 of my needs.

        Looking forward to next few weeks since I will begin today to increase my protein.

        I’m truly a supplementer of these than through regular nutrition! ? Just poor eating habits of course. I’m getting better at stalking food…period!

    My wife and I have been trying to get fit, and we wanted to try proteins. I had no idea that Whey protein can actually help with weight loss. We may have to try it so I can shed a little weight! Thanks for all this great information.

    This is what I use in the ideal protein to use as a meal replacement: I add fruit like 1/2 to 1 whole banana and 1 TBL Spoon natural peanut butter and I use almond milk 8oz and I scoop vanilla protein powder… yummmy

    My husband wants to do the 15 day challenge with me. Can he use the IdealLean protien? I know it’s formulated for women but just wanted to make sure it’s also fine for men.

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      Yes he can! Now, have him follow his weight bracket in the meal plan and then x1.3 if he’s under 200 lbs. and x1.5 if he’s over 200 lbs. to each serving in the meal plan to make sure he has the adequate amount of calories for his metabolism. Does that make sense?
