Dear Aamena
Seeing that your present BMI = 20, which is just below the ideal for your height, I cannot understand why you want to lose more weight. Please don't lose more weight and rather concentrate on doing your exercises to keep you trim and healthy. The shake will only cause weight gain if consuming those 23g of protein or 391 kJ per serving will increase your energy intake above your daily requirement.
Take care
