I don't know what tonalin is, but protein shakes are just a convenient way to supplement your lean protein intake and variety.

You need protein for building muscle and it gets difficult to eat enough from food sources sometimes, since many people who workout try to follow the idea of eating about a gram of protein per pound of body weight, and that gets to be a lot, especially if you're trying to do it from like one or two unvaried food sources. (chicken chicken chicken gets boring)

So, no, they don't really "make you buff".. you gotta work hard to make use of that protein to get buff.

You can probably just workout for a while and see how you feel about your progress...you don't need a protein shake until you have an idea how much protein you are usually eating and why you want more. For me it was when I stopped progressing in my pullups reps, I decided to try more protein, but by then I already had a structured diet that I could see where I could make adjustments, and expectations/goals that I hoped to meet by making the changes.
