Dear Rella
Are you really overweight? and what is your BMI? If your BMI is in the normal range (18-25) then you won't lose weight easily. You may also be ingesting too much energy with this diet (check how many cal or kJ the shake contains). To lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake to 1500 cal or 6300 kJ a day.
Good luck
