Does Whey Protein make a difference in weightlifting/or fat loss?

I’m going to start taking Whey for weightlifting.
I’m a freshman in football, i have a lot of fat in my stomach/sides, I read that it can help lose fat as well as gain muscle mass/strength etc.
What exactly does it do?
On a scale of 1-10 how much would it help?

    whey would be good, but so would creatine, it builds lean mass, which you might want to loose fat and gain muscle

    Whey is pretty much unnecessary when weight lifting – all it is a supplement that helps you reach your protein requirements which will help you build lean muscle mass; taking whey before lifting will better your performance and then consuming it within 15 mins of your workout will kickstart the recovery process. Whey protein IS useful, however you can almost certainly reach your ideal protein intake by simply eating the right foods such as eggs, lean meats, etc. – but of course, if you can’t meet your protein requirement through food then whey protein is definitely quite convenient. Protein takes longer to be processed by other things such as carbs and fats meaning the body works harder, which at the same time both play important roles in increasing lean muscle mass. If you’re serious about putting on lean muscle then I’d suggest checking out the following link in order to calculate your macronutrients (ideal grams of protein, carbs and fats) : http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=121703981

    I wouldn’t be able to tell you how helpful it would be on a scale of 1-10, as it’s just a convenient supplement that will help speed up recovery and help increase your protein intake.
