    Protein supplement, like whey protein, are usually used to help build muscle mass when combind with resistance training. Usually, gaining muscle mass will also increase body weight.

     

    But if protein is used instead of sugar as a calorie source, then weight loss can result if muscle bulking is not a goal.

     

    I cannot recommend a specific product. You might want to go to your local health food market, normally very helpful people work in those markets.
