IdealLean Protein & Pre-Workout Review & Protein Giveaway

IdealLean is for women prefer a protein shake with less sugar and calories. As women, we have unique nutritional needs. IdealLean Protein meets those needs head on. And because they know that women play hard and never quit, they have added their IdealFit Proprietary Recovery Blend, packed with L-Glutamine and superfruits to help your body recover from any challenge you take on. Get ready to get lean!

I am loving theIdealLean Chocolate Brownie Protein Shake that I received. Everyone seems to have their own routine when it comes to drinking their shakes. I wake in the morning and drink my pre-workout and then do my workout. I like to drink my protein shake after I workout with a piece of fruit and this is my breakfast. I feel it gives me a boost for the day and replenishes my body after a long run or lifting weights and doing calisthenics.  It is suggested that you drink a shake before and after your workout but because I workout before I do anything I just drink it after.

I have used a lot of different protein shakes and one of my old favorites had 200 calories per scoop. I have found that a lot of protein shakes taste horrible, hurt my tummy or even make my skin break out. So my old 200 calorie per scoop shake was fine with me for a while because it was yummy and had no negative effects. 

Everything has changed now that I found IdealLean. I tasted it first, before I really read into it and was really happy with the delicious chocolate brownie flavor. It is super yummy especially ice cold and with 8oz of water. If you want you can add juice or milk but I stick with water because of calories. I was super excited when I looked on the front of myIdealLean container and saw that their was only 80 calories!! 
                80 CALORIES!! 

Seriously?? I have never had a protein shake so low in calories. Like I said before my old favorite was 200 so that's a 120 calorie difference. I can eat that much more each day. I could have two shakes and still have 40 calories left over. IdealLean has won me over with that.

Each scoop contains 20 grams of protein which is perfect and there is zero fat, sugar and carbs. This is truly a fantastic protein shake. IdealLean is 100% whey protein isolate.Whey protein isolate provides your muscles with the high quality protein they need, allowing you to build strong, lean muscle.


Whey protein isolate is easily digested and is ideal for those looking to build lean muscle because it is absorbed and processed quickly by your body. Whey protein isolate is the purest form of whey available, it’s also a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids that your body needs to repair muscle after a work out.


IdeaLean does not upset my stomach like other shakes have done in the past because it contains no lactose. A lot of other protein supplements irritate users with lactose intolerance because they don’t use whey protein isolate.  IdealLean is formulated to address the specific nutrient needs of women. Many women are deficient in folic acid, calcium and vitamin D despite the fact that they are crucial for good health. 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that women get at least 400mcg of folic acid daily, by drinking two IdealLean protein shakes each day you meet that requirement. Folic acid helps renew the cells that aid in hair growth and nail strength, a deficiency can lead to premature graying and hair loss. It’s a fact that women are at a higher risk of osteoporosis, calcium reduces that risk. It also assists in blood clotting, muscle contraction and nerve transmission. It may also reduce the risk of preeclampsia in pregnant women.

If you are trying to build lean muscle or losing body fat, recovery should be a top priority. Faster recovery means you can work harder each day and push your body to the next level! If you breakdown muscle without rebuilding it you’re not going to see the results you’re working for. IdealFit proprietary recovery blend is included in IdealLean and is packed with L-Glutamine and super fruits to minimize muscle breakdown and improve protein metabolism, allowing you to build more muscle, faster.

I am all about building more muscle fast so I will be sticking with my IdealLean protein shakes and can't wait to try the vanilla. Vanilla would be awesome because you can drink it straight of blend in fruit to give it whatever flavor you choose that day

The other product I received and have been using daily is theIdealLean Pre-Workout. It comes in two fresh and fruity flavors, Watermelon Ice and Blue Raspberry. I picked the Blue Raspberry and it is delicious. 
This pre-workout has 0 sugar, 0 fat and 0 calories so you can drink it without tracking any calories. I am obesessed with pre-workout drinks and have tried multiple brands. Just like protein shakes I have tried tons and only liked a few. Before I received my IdealLean Pre-Workout I was using two other brands both of which I was unsatisfied with. They just didn't back the punch as my regular favorite brand. I had run out of my regular brand and figured I would use up the other two brands I had before I went out and bought my brand.

Lucky for me the amazing people at IdealLean sent me a jar of theirBlue Raspberry. I am soooooo excited to have found it and now I have a new favorite IdealLean will be my number one from now on. I can't wait to try the Watermelon Ice. 


If you are not familiar with Pre-Workouts you should for sure try it. I call it my Go Juice. You just mix a scoop of it in with 8-10 oz of water. If you are new to pre-workouts or new to this brand it is recommended to try 1/2 to 1 scoop at first and see how you like it. You can use up to 2 scoops but never use more than 2 scoops per day. Consume your drink 20-30 minutes BEFORE your workout and it will give you the energy you need to push hard through your routine.

IdealLean Pre-Workout will deliver the motivation you need, and so much more. This Pre-Workout gives you natural,clean energy and focus with a special blend of ingredients including Green Tea Extract 50% EGCG, proprietary IdealFit Fat-Loss Blend, and other components to improve blood flow and oxygen to muscles and combat lactic acid build-up. You’ll be able to push yourself harder and recover faster! 

I am a firm believer in pre-workouts and must have a good brand so I am super happy with my new favorite IdealLean Blue Raspberry.
