Ok: It is ok to drink protein shakes as a part of a well rounded diet. Many are high in sugar so be careful for sugar content. Also do not rely on shakes as meal replacements, they should only supplement a well rounded diet.

How old when I should start drinking protein shakes?

Any age: These are helpful for bodybuilding; you may decide you prefer lean chicken or fish instead. More than 1 gram of protein per day per pound that you actually weigh won't do you additional good even when you're putting muscle on. Stay away from steroids and I hope your healthy lifestyle will be something you stick with for a lifetime.
