Yes: Yes we protein shakes would work for you .It's hard to lose fat and gain weight and muscle at the same time. To lose weight you need to be on a calorie deficit diet. Set 1 goal first and try to achieve it.

A high protein low--: A high protein/low carb diet is the best way of losing "belly" fat, combined with exercise! Fats are needed to train your body to use it's own fat as an ENEWRGY SOURCE
