      Good question Jake! None of our products contain ingredients that make them unsuitable for men to use 🙂

    I just need to make sure I am doing this correctly. I bought the preworkout the BCAA and protein. I should do prework 30 minutes before working out drink the BCAA as I am working out then a protein shake after? Should I still take a multivitamin everyday as well? Seems like a lot. I was also taking green tea pills is that going to be ok or what’s your thoughts. I don’t want to kill myself lol

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Ashley! Yes, that’s great. Pre-workout 20-30 minutes before exercising, BCAAs during, and you could take your protein shake both before and after your workout. An hour before, and up to half an hour from returning home from the gym. Yes, you could definitely take a multivitamin, and I’m not familiar with your green tea pill, so that is probably something you would need to determine with your doctor or on your own.

    I have the pre-workout supplement however that is not listed on the 6-week daily meal plans. Is this something I take in addition to my pre-workout meals or instead of the idealfit protein?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Thea, no you wouldn’t use it in place of your pre-workout meal, but you could use it in addition to that! You should take your pre-workout meal half an hour to an hour before you workout, and then you can take your pre-workout 20-30 minutes before hand. What Lindsey does, is she will eat her pre-workout meal an hour before her workout, and then drink her pre-workout 30 minutes before hand! 🙂

    Is the bcaa a capsule or a powder?? Is it added to protein shake?? Where can it be found??

  4. Rae Snider

    I think I’m doing wrong, I take my protein shake an hour before I workout & 30 mins before I workout I drink my preworkout. I drink my BCAA when I almost done on my workout. Do I need to drink my BCAA before I workout or after?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Rae, it sounds like you are doing it right to me! You should be taking your BCAAs during your workout!

    I am currently taking the fat burner,BCAA, pre workout and the ideal fit protein shakes. Should I continue taking my daily multivitamin as well?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Yes, because those supplements are different than a multivitamin.

  6. Sarah

    I am currently using the Ideal Lean and the fat burner, my question is, once I hit my target weight and size, and I stop using the fat burner, will my metabolism be compromised and suddenly slow down? Of will it maintain it’s current metobolic rate?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      Because your Fat Burner is giving you an extra boost, when you stop taking it you won’t have that extra boost anymore. As long as you keep exercising, eating healthy and generally living a healthy lifestyle you’ll be able to maintain your results.

    I started day 1 today on the supplements; I am military so my workouts are different. M/W/F is run days about 2 miles on Monday 4 miles on the other 2 days/ Tuesday and Wednesday toe touches about 25 and 25 sit ups and 10-15 push-ups. I try to stay close to Lindsey daily meal plan but I do a protein shake with fruit and almond milk at 0430 take the pre-work 30 mins before and from 0630-0745 we workout. Drink a BCAA than at 0845 I take fat burner before breakfast at 0930 bowl of oatmeal and 1 whole egg with only 1 without yolk with fruit. I snack on almonds and carrots with my daily water intake. Lunch is salad with spinach raisins onions small amount of ham and chopped eggs. Snack on almonds and carrots with water; dinner is 3 chicken breast slices ( grilled) with sweet potato and a green veggie with protein shake. Am I doing ok? I am 166 lbs trying to lose 15 pounds and get toned. Any suggestions

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      It depends on what brand you’re taking. You should always follow the suggested use/dose whenever you’re using a supplement or vitamin.

    Hi!, thanks for the email. I’m glad I found out about you. Question: if I only want to build muscle & tone do I still need to buy the fat burner?.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      If you want to show the muscle you’re building so you can get that toned look you’ll need to burn away excess fat. A fat burner won’t help you build muscle but it will help you burn away excess fat so you can see the progress you’re making in the gym. That’s where a good fat burner like IdealLean Fat burner comes in. It will help you boost your metabolism and increase fat burn to help you expose your muscle more.

    Hi! I was wondering if I can use both IdealShake and IdealLean at the same time? I want to have a meal replacement for breakfast as I usually am on the go fast and early and am on the go all day.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      We don’t recommend combining them into one shake but you can totally use both. Use IdealShake to replace your meals and drink IdealLean pre- and post-workout to help you build lean, toned muscle.

    Hi, Im doing the 15 day challenge now and plan to do the 12 week challenge after I finish. I have the ideal lean will I need to get the ideal shake too? How are they different?

  11. Andrea

    I understand most women have goals for weight loss and staying lean, but what about those who aren’t afraid to gain the major muscle? My fitness goals are strength training and muscle gain and not so much weight loss. Is this product right for me?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      IdealLean Protein contains 20g of pure whey isolate. You can definitely use this to supplement your goals of gaining muscle. Putting on weight all depends on how many calories you’re eating. If you want to put on muscle weight make sure that your macros support that goal. IdealLean Protein is a great way to reach your protein goals because it’s all protein, no fat, sugar or carbs.

  12. Violet

    My question is do you offer a supplement package. With the protein,BCAAs,and pre workout
    I have your BCAAs already and love them.I take a pre workout that’s for women.this is my first around of products for women by women.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      We don’t have any supplement packages right now, but that’s definitely an idea I’ll pass along to our product manager 🙂

  13. Crystal Crittle

    Are your products non-gmo verified or working on getting verified or organic?

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      We are definitely considering doing an organic line in the future!

  14. Steph

    Are these products safe while breastfeeding -including the preworkout. And would you recommend them for meal supplementing while trying to get extremely lean

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      That’s definitely something you’ll want to talk to your doctor about. I will say that IdealLean Protein is a great way to supplement your protein intake. It’s not a meal replacement but it is a meal supplement! It works great as a protein supplement because it doesn’t contain any extra fat, carbs or sugar so you just get extra protein to help you reach your goal of getting lean.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      IdealLean Protein is tested gluten free. It does contain dairy, but it is lactose free. IdealLean BCAAs are tested gluten free. It doesn’t contain dairy but it’s produced in a factory that processes dairy. IdealLean Pre-Workout is tested gluten free. It doesn’t contain dairy but it’s produced in a factory that processes dairy.

    Do you have to have any of these supplements more than once a day? If you can have them all only once a day, when is the best part of the day to consume each? I work out in the mornings and I am just starting my fitness journey so I am not very sure about supplementing, but I just ordered your pre-workout,protein, and BCAAs.

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      Great question! You can take your multi vitamin any time of day you’ll remember! I take my fish oil in three doses throughout the day but a lot of people like to take it at night because then you avoid the fish burps. 🙂 Drink your BCAA’s during your workout and between meals later in the day. Drink pre workout 20-30 minutes before your workout. Drink the protein powder with your pre and post workout meals and any time of day you need a little more protein in a meal.

      1. Michelle Graves

        I started protein shakes and thought they are used for meal replacements amd started useing a gravity force trainer to work out i feel it in my upper body witch is good because i want definition in my upper muscles but a lot of my problem is my abdomen area I am trying to lose some of that belly fat and Tone It Up I did do crunches and throughout the day tighten my core muscle but I just really don’t feel like my core is getting worked out am i not doing enough or am i doing something wrong. I would love to have a build like you just don’t know how to get there i start out good then die out slowly any suggestions

      2. Jennifer Nelson

        Plexus has omegas derived from plant that prevents fishy burps!

  16. Katie

    At this time which products do u recommend for those 4 other supplements?

        1. Caitlin Peterson

          Hi Jennifer, I’m not sure if she has, but that sounds very appealing, as the fishy burps are the worst. I will let her know about this. 🙂

  17. Erin

    what is the order in which you should take the shake and the bcca? before, after workout?
    Can you recommend a pre-workout supplement since your’s isn’t on the market yet?

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      You’ll want the IdealLean Protein powder to be part of your pre workout meal about 60-90 minutes before your workout. Then you’ll drink a scoop of BCAAs during your workout. And you can include the protein in your post workout meal right after your workout as well! For a pre workout, Cellucor’s C4 is easy to get at retail locations but it doesn’t have some great benefits that ours will have such as added ingredients that will help with fat loss and focus. So make sure you watch for ours soon!

  18. Abby

    Question, the ideal lean has the protein, does it have any of the other 4? Is it a “preworkout” supplement, does it contain bcaa’s, etc? Are there certain brands that are best? Thanks for all of your help.

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      No, each of those five supplements would be separate products and we are working on a product for each one! Keep watching IdealFit! 🙂

  19. Kim

    When you talk about the top five supplements that women need, are those five in the ideal lean? If not, how else do you suggest getting all five daily? I also want to know how often do you drink ideal lean? Do you drink more on workout days than non workout day?

    1. Lindsey Mathews

      IdealLean has plans to have products for all five of those supplements but don’t quite yet! Be on the lookout though! Each of the five would be a different product and we are working on it. I use IdealLean Protein 2-3 times a day on both lifting days and recovery days. When you’re not lifting your body still needs the protein to recover from the day before’s session. 🙂
