Our expert says:
Any food can potentially cause weight gain if eaten in excess or if it contains too high a kJ content. Check the protein shake you intend using to see if a serving (with and without the diluting liquid such as milk), does not provide more than 2100 kJ per meal or 1/3 of your energy requirement when slimming. Also make sure that the shake will not overload you with vitamins and minerals (too much of a good thing can also be harmful).
