    It might work, but it's very unhealthy.

    That's like, ~600 calories per day? (Assuming your shakes are 2 scoops)

    What's the big rush to lose 5lbs? Lose it over 2 weeks or so instead, and give your body the nutrients it needs instead of starving yourself.
    The trouble with being punctual is that nobody's there to appreciate it.

    you should really get two full meals in instead of replacing them with protein drinks.. i always believe that shakes should only supplement your meals instead of replace because there are just too much essentials minerals that you can't get from shakes.

    Absolutely NOT a good strategy.

    You'd be at such a caloric deficit your body is going to throw the emergency brake on your metabolism and halt your true goal of losing weight.

    If you're looking to drop 5 pounds fast, replace as many simple carbs as possible with lean proteins and space your meals out throughout the day.

    And drink tons of water. Just water. Nothing else.

    Depends what you idea of small lunch/dinner is.

    You're still going to be at a pretty high deficit.

    The answer is for you to just do it and tell is about it later. Useless question unless you want a real nutritional plan; 2 shakes per day with vigorous cardio won't be sustainable past a week.
    Back on that injury recovery time:
    Squat: 205x5 ATG Goal: 365x1 May 22nd
    Bench: 190x1 Goal: 225x5 Apr 28th
    Deadlift: 405x1 Goal: 500x1 Feb 9th

    Life is easy when you take personal responsibility

    Given that you aren't defining what a protein shake is, no one can say. For me, a protein shake means 1 scoop of whey + water.

    If that's the case for you, then there are much cheaper/quicker/easier ways to kill yourself.

    Why 5 lbs.? Do you need to weigh-in for something? If so, then you can probably just cut water weight for a day.

    If you insist upon starving yourself for some reason, then at least sub the protein shakes for chicken or tuna fish. It would cost about the same anyway.

    1 scoop typical protein: 24g protein, 3g carbs, 1g fat
    3 oz (cooked wgt) chicken breast: 27g protein, 0g carbs, 3g fat
    6 oz tuna in water: 24-28g protein, 0g carbs, 2g fat
