Is this healthy ...
My girlfriend drinks only protein shakes Monday -Thursday and then eats regular meals and snacks Friday - Sunday. She looks great, but is this a healthy way to keep weight off?

Real food is the best way to lose weight for the long term and to be healthy. Protein shakes should be used when you're in a pinch or for convenience, but shouldn't be a staple of the diet.

Those protein shakes still have calories and do not necessarily mean weight loss. She is also missing many essential nutrients by following this diet. I am not sure what she is drinking exactly but can be pretty sure there is not enough essential fatty acids involved or fiber. Remember, it shouldn't be a diet but rather a lifestyle change. If she can't live the rest of her life following this program and be happy and healthy that is a clue that something needs to change.
