LadyBoss LEAN

LadyBoss LEAN® Provides the Protein You Need on Your Weight Loss Journey 

Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could lose weight and still drink a vanilla milkshake?

Or gain muscle while still savoring the delicious flavor of a vanilla cake?

We at LadyBoss think so. So when it came to creating our protein powder here at LadyBoss LABS, we asked ourselves, “Well, why not?”

The result? LadyBoss LEAN, our all-in-one, nutritious protein shake that supports weight loss. 

Oh, and it tastes like vanilla cake!

Vanilla Cake LEAN

LadyBoss designed LEAN protein powder with both your health and your love of sweets in mind! 

Additionally, LEAN is – in part – a patented blend of digestive enzymes built-in for gut health. 

It also helps promote healthy skin, hair, and nails! 

LadyBoss LEAN is extremely versatile! Take it on the go. Or bake LEAN into your favorite healthy desserts. You can even create high-protein shakes with flavors of your own choosing by adding the ingredients you want!

Ladyboss designed LEAN with two specific goals in mind. Yes, a protein shake should be healthy. But LadyBoss believed LEAN should also taste delicious

How Does LadyBoss LEAN Protein Help You Lose Weight?

  1. High Protein: The protein source of LadyBoss LEAN is a premium grass-fed whey protein. It provides 30% of the daily recommended value each serving.  
  2. Healthy Carbs: LadyBoss LEAN has 10 g of healthy carbs, carbs that help its amino acids work to build lean muscle.
  3. Lower Calorie Meal Replacement: LadyBoss LEAN is a lower calorie meal replacement that can assist in your weight loss goals. It can serve as supplemental calories when you struggle to find time to eat throughout the day. 
  4. Helps Curb Sweet Cravings: Despite its delicious natural vanilla flavor, LadyBoss LEAN boasts a lower sugar content than other protein powders. So, LEAN can help curb those constant sugar cravings while still feeling like you’re enjoying a vanilla milkshake!

Weight loss LEAN

LadyBoss LEAN is both a meal replacement shake and a protein powder.  

Protein plays an essential role in your weight loss journey.

Besides helping build lean muscle, protein is a natural appetite suppressant. Which means you end up feeling fuller for longer.

Protein does this by reducing a hunger-stimulating hormone called ghrelin.  

And as for carbs? Well, the carbs built into LEAN work in conjunction with the amino acids and protein.  

Together, aminos and carbs open the gateway to your muscles so your body can strengthen and repair itself.

But LEAN is not just for pre and post-workouts meals! LEAN is perfect for any time of day!  

You can use LadyBoss LEAN as a replacement for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s also ideal for those late-night sweet cravings we all experience. 

Packed with essential vitamins and minerals, LEAN compliments a healthy diet with 30% of your DV of protein.

And let’s be honest, these days, we are all busier than ever, always on the go.  

Typically, we don’t have time to cook. That’s why we occupy fast food drive-thru lines.

Having a shake such as LEAN not only helps in losing weight, but it is easy to grab and go! 

Along with your day-to-day activities and exercise routine, LadyBoss LEAN can help keep you on track and feeling your best.

What Ingredients are in LadyBoss LEAN?

Vanilla Cake LEAN 2

LadyBoss LEAN is RBGH free, sourced by non-GMO whey protein; it also includes patented digestive enzymes, provides 30% RDA of protein, and LEAN is soy and gluten-free. 

Again, I know it is hard to find the time to eat right. Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to eat at all!

That is why LadyBoss LEAN is the ideal solution for that busy schedule and ensuring you stay on track to achieving your weight loss goals.  

Meal replacements, like LEAN, are ideal for ensuring you get the quality nutrition you need.

The protein source in LEAN is a non-GMO whey protein and completely RBCH free!

LEAN also provides you with 30% of the protein RDA. Which makes it perfect for helping meet those daily intake goals!

And as for that dreaded protein powder bloat? 

Well, you don’t have to worry about that with LEAN. 

Because, LEAN comes with a blend of ProHydrolase digestive enzymes that assist in breaking down the protein. 

That way, you can enjoy your shake bloat-free.

LEAN is also soy-free, which removes any risk of dangerous herbicides showing up unannounced in your protein!

LEAN is entirely gluten-free as well! So it is safe for those of us with celiac or gluten intolerance.  

LEAN Contains Premium Grass-Fed Whey Protein

Whey Powder LEAN

There are a lot of options on the market for protein powders.  

There are also a lot of ingredients and information that are ridiculously confusing.

But here at LadyBoss, we have your back. 

We are proud of our all-in-one, powered-by-science LadyBoss LEAN. We are also happy to break down the key ingredients for you.

So, let’s begin with the most important one – the protein. 

The protein in LadyBoss LEAN is a premium whey protein. 

FUN FACT: Did you know that whey protein is the most researched protein on the market today?  

Whey protein is often considered the golden standard of protein! 

That is due to its high absorption rate; whey protein gets to work building and supporting your lean muscle mass faster.

With LEAN, we took the extra step to ensure we got the highest quality whey protein.  

That’s why our whey is natural grass-fed whey.  

But that wasn’t enough for us. We also ensured that it was a non-GMO protein source, as well. 

But it doesn’t matter how premium the protein is if your body doesn’t absorb it properly! 

Cue in the Prohydrolase Digestive Enzymes!

Prohydrolase Digestive Enzymes 

Digestive LEAN

Never underestimate the importance of gut health to your overall well being. 

Yes, we set out to eliminate the unpleasant bloat that you can get from protein powders. 

The bloated feeling often comes from our digestive system’s inability to digest protein properly.  

But the entirety of your digestive system should be supported! 

 We believe that along with essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and protein, your meal replacement shake should also support digestion!

That’s why our patented Prohydrolase digestive enzymes are built right into LEAN.

So you never have to worry about protein-bloat, and it helps keep things functioning as they should!

With the enzymes built-in, muscle recovery begins immediately, but so does the proper digestion of the protein.

More than just a protein powder, LEAN contains essential vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, C, and E.  

That is why proper digestion is so important! 

The enzymes assisting with the breakdown of protein will also aid in digestion and absorption of the vitamins and minerals LEAN provides. 

Enzymes support the body in absorbing all the vitamins and minerals, so you reap the benefits.

That is why the Prohydrolase digestive enzymes are a crucial part of LadyBoss LEAN.  

LEAN’s Essential Vitamin & Mineral Profile

We all want our bodies to look their best, but don’t we also want our bodies to feel their best?

LadyBoss LEAN supports overall health. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals essential for women.  

As a meal replacement shake, LEAN works to supplement vitamins and minerals where you may not be getting them from foods.

LadyBoss designed LEAN to complement a balanced, healthy diet along with regular physical activity and exercise.

So what exactly does it mean when we say, “vitamins and minerals”? 

Well, let’s break down the vitamins and minerals profile found in LadyBoss LEAN.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)

Pyridoxine is just a fancy name for dietary Vitamin B6. 

FUN FACT: Vitamin B6 is needed for over 60 enzymes to work in your body. It’s a vital part of making non-essential amino acids.

Vitamin B6 is an essential vitamin that contributes to our remaining overall healthy in a variety of ways.  

While Vitamin B6 is in a wide variety of foods, it is still possible to have a deficiency. However, studies show that Vitamin B6 deficiency is often a symptom of a B12 and folic acid deficiency.  

Don’t worry, LEAN has the B12 requirement covered, and the folic-acid department is as well. But more on that later. 

B6’s contribution to overall health is why we added Vitamin B6 to LadyBoss LEAN. 

For starters, B6 assists in converting stored energy into blood sugar.  

Vitamin B6 is also key to overall blood health. It is needed for iron to convert to hemoglobin, helping form red blood cells.

Need I say more?


Do you remember when you were a kid, and your parents said you needed to eat bananas for potassium?

Well, there is a good reason for that. Potassium is an essential part of any diet. That’s why we included potassium in LadyBoss LEAN.  

Potassium is a mineral necessary for overall health, and vital for the body to function. 

It is in foods such as bananas, apricots, prunes, squash, and potatoes.  

Potassium assists in regulating the heartbeat. It also plays an essential role in lowering blood pressure, which helps reduce your chances of stroke.

Ever had an awful cramp, and someone told you to eat more potassium? 

Well, that is because potassium is essential in the role of the proper function of the muscles and nerves.  

Studies have shown that most Americans barely get half of the recommended amount of potassium.  

There’s a trend toward a decrease in potassium intake in conjunction with a rise in sodium intake. Primarily, that trend due to the processing and over-addition of additives to processed foods. Research shows, the trend is a significant factor in the increase of high blood pressure cases.

Now you know why grandma told you to eat your bananas.  

Or, you could just drink a LadyBoss LEAN shake!

Better yet, do both.


Speaking of things told to you since you were a kid, let’s talk about the mineral calcium!

I don’t know if I can even begin to emphasize the importance of calcium in your diet, especially since you are a woman.  

Calcium is critical for bone health, yet many of us don’t consume the daily recommended amount!  

After the age of fifty, our bones gradually become more brittle. A different way to put it, our bones become porous. Calcium helps fill those holes.

If we do get enough calcium, we run the risk of fracturing or breaking bones doing seemingly simple tasks. And we women, especially, face the possibility of osteoporosis.

Current government guidelines recommend we consume 1,2000 mg of calcium after the age of 51. However, the actual amount of calcium an adult needs daily is still debatable.  

Regardless, the bottom line is, we need to make sure we are getting calcium. 

Yes, you can undoubtedly get calcium from foods such as dairy products. But despite that, most Americans still struggle to meet the daily recommended amounts of calcium.  

Supplements like LadyBoss LEAN can help meet the daily goals of vitamins and minerals like calcium. 


We hear a lot about iron, but do you know what it does for you?  

Well, iron is a mineral found in every cell in the body. It is critical for the production of red blood cells. 

Do you ever feel run down and fatigued? Ok, silly question because that described just about every day for most of us.  

But the reason I ask is that, typically, fatigue is due to an iron deficiency. It’s true, a lot of us have a hard time getting iron!

Of Americans, 1% to 2% suffer from what is called iron deficiency anemia. It means the body is critically low on red blood cells due to iron deficiency.  

While iron is available in foods, Americans still seem to have a hard time getting enough.  

That is why health professionals often recommend supplements. However, iron supplements can cause gastrointestinal discomfort.  

So, using a meal replacement shake like LadyBoss LEAN, fortified with iron, can be a better choice. It is easier on the stomach. 

And LadyBoss LEAN tastes far better than iron supplements too! 

Folic Acid

Folic acid is a B vitamin that our bodies use to make new cells. 

While everyone requires folic acid, it is vital for women during pregnancy. The recommended daily amount of folic acid is 400 mg, even those who aren’t pregnant.

That’s why the CDC (Center for Disease Control) suggests women get into a daily habit of taking folic acid supplementation. 

While folic acid helps prevent disease, it also helps avoid congenital disabilities in unborn children.  

When a woman has enough folic acid in her body before pregnancy, folic acid helps prevent defects in the baby’s spine and brain.

That is why the CDC recommends folic acid supplementation for pregnant women or trying to get pregnant. 

Meal replacement shakes containing folic acid can be ideal. Meal replacement shakes help ensure you’re getting all the nutrients your body may need.

However, before you begin any supplementation or meal replacements that contain folic acid, like LEAN, always check with your doctor first.   

Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)

There is a close link between folic acid and Vitamin B12, a.k.a., “Cyanocobalamin.” Both create purines and pyrimidines, two building blocks of DNA. 

Like other B vitamins, your body requires B12 for the conversion of food into energy. Vitamin B-12 is essential to proper brain and nerve function. 

B-12 also plays a role in the formation of red blood cells.  

Your body must convert carbohydrates into an energy form it can metabolize. Vitamin B-12 is a necessary component of that conversion. How carbohydrates are used by the body is an additional role of Vitamin B-12.  

So how does the body go about getting this all-so-vital vitamin? 

Well, food contains vitamin B-12. 

However, only animal-based food such as dairy, fish, red meat, poultry, and eggs contain B-12.  

Therefore, to get the best vitamin B12 benefits, supplementation is highly recommended, especially for people on a more vegetarian diet.  

Not having enough B-12 can lead to nerve damage, an increased risk of heart attack, and anemia.  

Multivitamins with B-12 or meal replacement shakes with a complete B vitamin profile are great for helping meet daily requirements. 

How Many Calories, Carbs, and Sugar Does LadyBoss LEAN Contain?

Nutrition Facts LEAN

LadyBoss LEAN contains 100 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, and 4 grams of sugar per serving.  

When you are looking for protein powder or a meal replacement shake, you should want to know what is in it.

You should treat protein powders and meal-replacement shakes as you would any other food! Always check your labels.

While it seems that all protein powders are created equal, they aren’t.  

For starters, you need to know the calories in protein powder.  

LadyBoss LEAN contains only 100 calories per serving. However, some can be upward of 200-300 calories per serving for one reason or another. 

Meal replacement shake calories are just as important to keep track of for your health and fitness goals.  

You should also be aware of the sugar content. LEAN contains 4 grams of sugar and can assist in curbing sugar cravings.

However, other shakes may contain unnecessary amounts of sugar—the reason being, flavor. No matter the source of the sugar, high-sugar content will knock you off your weight loss goals.

Always be aware of the sugar content of the foods you eat. 

And as for carbs? Well, some powders are high in carbs for muscle building purposes.

However, replacement shakes like LEAN contain around 10 grams of healthy carbs. These healthy carbs help assist in muscle repair and lean muscle mass growth.  

It is essential to know how many carbs, sugars, and calories in protein powder before you buy it.  

All-in-one meal replacement shakes such as LadyBoss LEAN help keep things balanced and help support your fitness goals.  

Calories in LEAN vs. Other Protein Powders On The Market

LEAN vs other powders

When you are on the market for a protein powder, it is vital you know what goals you have in mind.  

Are you on a diet for weight loss? If so, you want to look for a protein powder that is moderate to low calorie.

If you struggle with gaining weight, some protein powders boast higher calories and carbs to assist.  

It is necessary to know the goals you have in mind when in the market for a protein powder. Do you want to gain weight or lose it?

Whey protein-based LEAN contains 110 calories per serving.  

What Ingredient does LadyBoss Use to Make LEAN Taste Great?

Woman drinks LEAN

No one wants to feel like they are on a diet! 

Instead, we’d much rather be drinking a vanilla milkshake!

Or any milkshake for that matter.

Well, that is pretty much what drinking LadyBoss LEAN tastes like! But, with far fewer calories and less sugar!

The signature of LadyBoss LEAN is its delicious natural vanilla cake flavor.  

LEAN is both high in nutrition and flavor. It is a meal replacement shake that compliments fitness and weight loss goals while helping curb sugar cravings. 

Oh, and it’s versatility helps lend itself to being perfect for culinary creativity!  

There is an unlimited amount of delicious protein shake flavor options you can create with LEAN. From detoxifying shakes to tropical flavors, it invites you to get crafty!

It also is ideal for use in your baking! Because of the natural vanilla, you can make LEAN cookies, pancakes, cakes, and more!  

What are LadyBoss LEAN Flavor Drops?

A LadyBoss LEAN flavor drop is a limited, one-time flavor released to LadyBoss Club Members first, then to the public 24 hours later. 

If you haven’t figured it out by now, everyone loves our vanilla cake flavored LEAN! There have been over 20 Million LEAN shakes served! 

However, we wanted to see how creative we could get with the LEAN flavors. 

We began to tinker with flavor ideas that conjure up childhood memories to classic flavors we still love.  

This tinkering resulted in the LadyBoss LEAN Flavor Drops.

With the LadyBoss Flavor Drop, we got the opportunity to explore different flavors of LEAN protein powder.

Because we got so excited about the idea, we wanted to make it a special occasion for our LadyBoss community!  

That is why we make LadyBoss Flavor Drops an exclusive, one-time opportunity, and why we offer pre-sale purchases to LadyBoss Club Members.

After the Club Member pre-sale purchase period ends, we release the LadyBoss Flavor Drop to the public until it sells out.  

Once it sells out, it’s gone for good!  

The truth is, though, you never know what surprises we might pull out of our LadyBoss hat! 

We will break our own rules one day! Maybe do something like bring back one of the favorite, exclusive LEAN flavors for a limited time.

I didn’t say we would, I said maybe.

You never know. 

What Flavors has LadyBoss Dropped?

The LadyBoss Flavor Drop so far has included a line up of classic flavors such as Cookies & Cream, Glazed Doughnut, and Strawberry Shortcake to childhood nostalgia flavors such as Toasted Cinnamon Cereal.  

However, just in the event we maybe bring a favorite back (again, I said maybe, keywords are critical), let’s review what flavors have dropped in the past.  

Why? Well, we just love talking about anything delicious! 

And in reality, there is no such thing as choosing a favorite LadyBoss Flavor Drop! I mean, we created each one because it was already an everyday-favorite flavor! 

1. Brownie Batter: 

Brownie Batter LEAN

The Brownie Batter LadyBoss Flavor Drop harkened back to childhood.  

Remember the joy of fresh homemade brownies as a kid? But more importantly, remember when you got to lick the extra brownie batter from the spatula?

Ah, childhood.

Who am I kidding? I still make brownies just to lick the spatula! 

Apparently, a lot of other people do as well, as this was one of the most popular LadyBoss Flavor Drops to date!

2. Cookies & Cream

Cookies and Cream LEAN

 Of course, we had to have a Cookies & Cream LadyBoss Flavor Drop! 

 When we first began tossing around ideas about LadyBoss Flavor Drop, it was without a doubt that Cookies & Cream would be in the lineup!

Who doesn’t love cookies & cream ice cream?  

Who did not spend their childhood dunking their Oreo cookies in milk?

Plus, this flavor drop made for a delicious protein shake!  

It was like having a Cookies & Cream milkshake without all the extra fat, sugar, and calories.  

3. Glazed Donut

Glazed Donut LEAN

It does not matter if you are Team Dunkin or Team Krispy Kreme. A delicious glazed donut is an all-time favorite, period. 

That is why the Glazed Donut LadyBoss Flavor Drop was one of LadyBoss’s most popular flavor drops ever.  

It left everyone who tried it feeling like they were having a cheat meal even though they weren’t!

No matter what you did with it, make a protein shake, bake with it, the Glazed Donut LEAN left us wanting more.  

And naturally, it paired lovely with coffee in the morning! 

 4. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

Peanut Butter Cup LEAN

I feel that I should be able just to say, “Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup” and then walk away.  

What more is there to say? It’s a legendary pairing and an all-time favorite flavor!  

Evidently, everyone else thought so as well.  

Because when this LadyBoss Flavor Drop landed, it was gone in a sticky, peanut buttery flash. 

5. Strawberry Shortcake

StrawberryShortcake LEAN

Strawberry Shortcake was one of the most requested flavors we received for a LadyBoss Flavor Drop!  

And we never like to disappoint! So, we delivered.  

Strawberry Shortcake is a classic, summertime favorite.  

Maybe you loved (or love!) the strawberry shortcake ice cream bars.  

Or it could be that you ate fresh strawberries, with the little shortcakes and whipped cream growing up.  

Almost all of us have a nostalgic connection to strawberry shortcake in some way.  

Which is probably why this LadyBoss Flavor Drop was one of the fastest-selling to date. 

6. Toasted Cinnamon Cereal

Toasted Cinnamon Cereal LEAN

 Talk about childhood nostalgia.  

When you were a kid, do you remember eating your favorite toasted cinnamon cereal?  

But almost as good as the cereal itself was the cinnamon laden milk left in the bowl after you finished.  

That was the inspiration behind the Toasted Cinnamon Cereal LadyBoss Flavor Drop.  

From making shakes or baking it into cookies, This LadyBoss Flavor Drop took you back to childhood.

Even better is that Toasted Cinnamon Cereal LEAN managed to do it with much less sugar than the cereal!

 7. Double Chocolate

Double Chocolate LEAN

What’s better than chocolate? Um, more chocolate!  

That is why we upped our chocolate game with the Double Chocolate LadyBoss Flavor Drop!

With the success of Brownie Batter, we kept receiving requests for a new chocolate flavor drop.  

We tossed around a lot of ideas! But we kept coming back to our love of just regular chocolate!  

Chocolate fudge, chocolate cookies, chocolate cake! 

Then someone mentioned loving double chocolate cake and cookies.  

A new LadyBoss Flavor Drop was born.  

As the saying goes, “The rest is history.” 

Importance of a Healthy Diet when Losing Weight

Lose weight LEAN

Exercise is essential when you are trying to lose weight. There is no denying that. 

However, exercise is 20% of the equation.  

Proper nutrition takes up the other 80%. You can work out for two hours every day, but if you’re still eating poorly, it won’t make much difference.

Healthy eating is essential to reaching your weight loss goals!

Now, that does not mean you should jump on the latest high protein or low carb fad diet! Nor does it mean to give up eating what you love. 

It is about making tweaks and adjustments to supporting your body and efforts in losing weight.

Often, when you start cutting out foods to lose weight, you also cut out necessary essential vitamins and minerals.

One of the first things we all can learn to do better is portion control. As Julia Child loved to say, “Moderation, moderation, moderation.” 

Healthy eating begins by reducing how much you are taking in at each meal.

On the flip side, if you’re someone who forgets to eat, try adding in extra healthy calories and nutrients. 

That is where meal replacement shakes, such as LadyBoss LEAN, can come in handy. 

Shakes such as LEAN are one-stop shops in proper nutrition. They are high protein and contain all the necessary essential vitamins and minerals.

Plus, they are portable for those of us on the go all the time.

To reach your fitness goals, look at your eating habits first and foremost

The Role of Exercise in Losing Weight and Overall Health

Fit Woman LEAN

To say that exercise is 20% of the equation when reaching fitness goals does not mean it isn’t essential.

It is very much.  

However, I encourage you to look at exercise, not as something to help you lose weight. Instead, look at it as something good for you.

Yes, you want to burn calories and get your heart rate up. And yes, inevitably, that will help you lose weight with proper nutrition.  

However, when you partake in regular aerobic exercise, you help your lungs and heart become more robust. As a result, you are helping prevent potential heart attack or stroke. 

When you perform an intense anaerobic exercise, you’re helping your body break down glucose. By doing so, you’re helping fight off diseases like heart disease and diabetes.  

Exercise is vital in helping you lose weight.  

But it is even more vital in helping you live and maintain a long and happy life as well.  

Weight Loss Requires Burning More Calories than You Consume

It is common to hear, “To lose weight, you have to have more calories going out than you have coming in.” 

What is meant by that is, the key to losing weight is a calorie deficit.  

However, do not take it to extremes. Calorie deficit does not equate to starving yourself.  

Cutting your calorie intake too low can hamper your progress.  

The healthiest way to create a calorie deficit is, again, proper nutrition, where it supports your goals. Begin with portion control and the type of food you eat.

Combine a modest calorie deficit with weight training, strength training, and cardio to burn more calories. 

I repeat: Calorie deficit does not mean starvation!  

Losing weight ensures you are eating enough protein, carbs, and healthy fats to support your goals.

Do not punish your body. Reward it instead of exercise and the nutrition it deserves.  

LadyBoss LEAN, The High Protein, All-In-One Meal Replacement Shake!

LEAN Shakes

It does not matter if you are trying to lose weight, maintain muscle, or put on some weight.  

Just as our bodies are all unique, we are all just as unique in our journeys.

The same can be said for supplements such as protein powders.

Nevertheless, one thing that should always be true: The journey should be enjoyable.  

That includes your protein shake! You should always love what you eat.  

That is why a meal replacement shake, such as LadyBoss LEAN, should not only provide you with nutrition but also taste amazing! 

After all, if you’re working hard to reach your goals, your protein powder should work harder to help you get there.

And why shouldn’t that protein shake taste like vanilla cake while it helps you achieve your goals?

As it turns out, you can have your cake and eat it, or drink it, too.
