We get a lot of confusion when it comes to protein supplements and meal replacements. It all comes down to what your goals are. You can use Lean ‘N Complete to replace a meal in your diet, which would help you lose weight. Or you can supplement your diet you already have to help build muscle. Lean ‘N Complete alone will not build muscle. You must workout first and then Lean ‘N Complete will help you reach your goals. The ingredients in Lean ‘N Complete were made to replicate a meal we would recommend, which is basically lean protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and good fats. Drinking a serving of Lean ‘N Complete would be the same thing (calorically) as eating a piece of chicken and some vegetables. It isn’t a muscle building magic potion, it is simply a useful tool for helping you reach your goals.
