Hello and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You may add whey protein to your diet. But as a word of caution I want you to know that high protein diet is always a burden on the kidneys. Consume lot of water for good kidney function. Don't remain on high protein diet for a long time. Prefer a balanced diet. Remember you want a attractive healthy body. So work in that direction.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Deepti Shivakumar
