A high protein diet has been linked to weight loss.
I guess if you replace a protein shake with a meal/snack then you could loss weight because of a calorie deficiency.Be sur to visit my site at http://maxweights.blogspot.com/ (copy and paste)

OP, It does burn fat through several physiological pathways, some direct and others indirect.
1. "The thermic effect was greater after the whey (14.4 ± 0.5%) than after the casein (12.0 ± 0.6%; P = 0.002) and soy (11.6 ± 0.5%; P = 0.0001) meals and was greater after the whey, casein, and soy meals than after the high-carbohydrate meal (6.6 ± 0.5%; P < 0.0001). Cumulative fat oxidation tended to be greater after the whey meal (16.2 ± 1.1 g) than after the soy meal (13.7 ± 1.0 g; P = 0.097) and was greater after the whey and soy meals than after the high-carbohydrate meal (10.9 ± 0.9 g; P < 0.05). (Acheson, Lubrano, Araymon, Beaumont, Azar, Zufferey, Monnard & Pinaud, Moennoz, Bovetto, 2011)."
- "Whey protein reduces short-term food intake relative to placebo, carbohydrate and other proteins."
- "Whey protein affects satiation and satiety by the actions of: (1) whey protein fractions per se; (2) bioactive peptides; (3) amino-acids released after digestion; (4) combined action of whey protein and/or peptides and/or amino acids with other milk constituents."
- "Whey ingestion activates many components of the food intake regulatory system."
- "Whey protein is insulinotropic, and whey-born peptides affect the renin-angiotensin system."
"Therefore whey protein has potential as physiologically functional food component for persons with obesity and its co-morbidities (hypertension, type II diabetes, hyper- and dislipidemia) (Luhovyy, Akhavan & Anderson, 2007)."
