In brief: It depends

Whey protein can either help with weight loss or weight gain depending on how you use it.
If used as a meal replacement as part of a restricted calorie diet, it helps with weight loss. If used along with heavy weight lifting and a moderate or high calorie, high protein diet, muscle enlargement and weight gain will occur.
