No. Even a large amount of protein shakes should not, assuming that your diet is otherwise complete. Remember that pure whey protein shakes are not a replacement for a meal, only a supplement and should not be used as a sole source of nutrition. Be sure to consume other sources of food.

However; if you have an existing heart condition, powders such as whey protein CAN cause tachycardia (not immediately though).
