    Should a person trying to lose weight take protein shakes?

    I'm currently including a protein shake as part of my 2,000 calorie a day diet.

    but im doing so while im trying to lose weight..

    is that wise? cause i dont want to miss out on any gains..but i do make sure its within my daily allowed caloric intake and allowed protein macro intake.

    Your opinions would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

    If you mean only one a day, I don't see nothing wrong with it.

    No, it just means that the jackass who is wearing a muscle-padded sperm suit in his avi is making fun someone elses avi, and contributing nothing to the thread.

    If you are not meeting your daily protein requirements via whole food then a protein shake would help to bring your intake up to an optimal level.

    Yes.

    If you are meeting your daily protein requirements via whole food then why would you consider supplementing protein?

    No.
