BecksA, Actually, based on all the other posts, it most likely will help with your cravings. As many of us have mentioned to you in other posts, you have not been eating a balanced diet and have not been eating enough during the day. Adding protein and calories earlier in the day will help to stabilize your metabolism.
Regarding the protein shake - how many carbs are in it? How much sugar? I just caution you because there are many products out there that are loaded with garbage and they may make your feel worse. I recommend that you choose more natural sources of protein, like fresh lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, legumes, etc. Soy is wonderful source of protein and in fact many protein shakes and bars are made with soy protein. Just check the ingredients and be sure you are not eating a huge sugar load.
Also don't expect results immediately. You need to give it time. This will be a process, not an immediate cure. Focus on eating more during the day - distribute your calories evenly from morning through evening so that your body is never starving for the next feeding. Eat a smaller dinner and plan for an evening snack or small meal. Do this, and you cravings will be gone in about 2-4 weeks.
