Friday Giveaway: GNC Total Lean Shake 25


Protein power!

This giveaway is part of New Year New Rear Week, FBG’s annual tradition of starting your New Year off with a fit bang. Get all the special posts and giveaways here!

Here in FBG land (Which, did you hear, now includes Mamas and Eats?!), we are big fans of protein. The stuff keeps you full, helps your muscles repair after workouts and generally helps to keep your blood sugar levels stabilized and therefore your body happy-happy from a health perspective. So for today’s New Year New Rear giveaway we thought that it would be awesomesauce to give away the stuff. And because giving away grilled chicken breasts and salmon fillets and tofu might be a little, well, odd (not to mention logistically difficult and maybe even stinky), we’re giving away some protein powder! GNC Total Lean – Lean Shake 25 in French Vanilla and Rich Chocolate to be specific.

With 25 grams of high-quality protein, 8 grams of fiber to help you feel fuller and satisfied  and 24 vitamins and minerals, it’s a protein powder that’ll help you reach your goals in and out of the gym. And to win it, all you have to do is tell us what your favorite way to get your protein is in the comments and then either Pin, Tweet or share this post on your Facebook page. Easy! We’ll select a random U.S. reader to win in about a week and notify her via email and in the comments.

Power up! —Jenn

    My favorite way to get protein is a shake right after I work out!

  11. Jennifer V. says:

    I buy chicken breasts and tilapia or salmon in bulk and use my Foodsaver to seal it for freezing. In the morning I get out whatever lean protein strikes my fancy to thaw and it’s ready to cook up with some veggies after my post-work workout! I would like to try making shakes but I just can’t seem to find a protein powder that doesn’t have that awful artificially sweet taste.

  12. @pluvk says:

    I love eggs, salmon, and lean chicken! And I do rock those protein shakes!

  13. Ivori says:

    My favorite way to get my protein is to top my sweet potato with tuna and salsa !

    I like making my own protein bars: oatmeal, peanut butter, protein powder, ground flax & maybe a little honey. all mixed together and pressed into bars. Yum!

  22. Deb E. says:

    I use protein powder in my soups, usually a hemp protein with added fiber. I tweeted!
