I heard from someone that drinking protein shakes as meals to often can leave your muscles soft. I am eating Breakfast , lunch, and dinner. But i am wondering if the other two or three meals can be protein shakes.

protein shakes as meals can be good to supplement your diet with protein, etc. whole foods are actually better. personally i use prtein shakes post workout , before bed, and when i am in a hurry and have time restrictions.

What's your definition of a meal?
I simply can't get my macros in just three sittings, and I'm cutting. I like snacking, I usually eat 2 "normal" meals a day, but I also take in about 4-5 small shakes throughout the day as well.

A protein shake as a meal is not going to make your muscles soft, whoever told you that has absolutely no idea what they are talking about.
