Is a protein shake good for you?
Well, that depends…
What are you trying to achieve?
If you are trying to increase muscle mass and are working out, yes a protein shake could be helpful.
If you are trying to lose weight, a protein shake can be useful only if you replace other calories with it!
Drinking a shake for breakfast or to replace another meal can be very effective. However, if you drink it as a beverage with your meal or as something extra in your day it will add on pounds instead of helping you lose them.
This video from Everyday Health with Wellness Expert Jillian Michaels does a great job of explaining what type of meal substitutes or supplements actually work.
