I am unsure about what type of protien shake would be best for me, I'm an underweight female looking to add inches and pounds in muscle mass without losing weight. I generally eat healthy by natural taste. I've noticed that a lot of protien bars and shakes "for women" are low in protien and calories, some guy gave me a protien bar that had less protien than my greek yougert (although I know its really where the protien comes from that counts.)
Also, I am not vegan, vegetarian or gluten intolerant ect.

Gaining weight/muscle happens by eating a calorie surplus. Eat a wide variety of whole foods that you enjoy and you can use any kind of protein shake you like. There is no best, it's completely individual.

I am also a bit tall, my shoulders a bit broad, and fat goes to my stomach first. I was afraid to build my shoulders at first, but am happy to be seeing progress there now, so don't be afraid of them!

i don't believe in iifym (for physique purposes, yes, but for health and wellness, no), but i do believe you should seriously love every single thing you eat.
