A common myth is that protein is only for people trying to gain muscle, which would be incorrect. You should include a range of different protein sources into your diet, so here are some of the benefits of protein shakes:
1. It may help you feel fuller for longer. Another misconception is that to feel full you need to eat more carbs, and to an extent this is true but protein is as important to the feeling of being full.
2. Muscle gain - whether your goals are muscle gain, fat loss or general health you're going to gain muscle when you exercise. The role of protein is to help repair tissues damaged by exercise which occurs whether you're doing cardio or weight lifting.
3. Recovery - do you ever get DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) that lasts for a few days, sometimes all week? A lot of people don't reach their daily protein goals, which can inhibit the tissues from repairing.
