This article points out that there are benifets to protein shakes, but that they don't work miracles. There is significant evidence showing that protein shakes can help for building muscle mass and for being a meal replacement for weight loss. Even though it does help, the article says that exercising and eating healthy are the most important factors. Drinking protein shakes alone will not necessarily give you more muscle mass. I found this article interesting because I drink protein shakes myself somewhat often and I was curious to know if they are actually beneficial to my health. http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/protein-shakes-really-work-7372.html
