Hello doctor,

I am planning to lose weight, and I am a 27-years-old male with a weight 89 kgs and a height 167 cm. With my daily exercise practice, which I started doing three months ago, is it fine to take a protein shake if my goal is to lose weight only?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You do not want to lose muscle which often happens when people lose weight. Taking a protein shake is fine, but most protein shakes are steroid jacked, and you will gain and lose weight. Take egg white, lentils, and cheese to make up for a protein shake.
