Usually yes: Make sure that the protein drink is suitable for your weight loss goals. My advise is to meet with a nutritionist who can compute your nutritional needs especially while you are trying to lose weight. Keep in mind that living on a shake diet for life is not realistic so plan on a change in your diet when you get off the shakes.

Do not waste your $: Do not waste your time with "weight loss supplements". If you want to achieve weight loss, reduce your carbs to a bare minimum, drink only water, eat lots of low starch veggies and increase your activity levels.
