Question Which Whey to Go?

Sorry for that corny joke, but I was really confused on which whey I should buy. As of right now, I want to gain more lean muscle and lose body fat. Is the Whey Isolate better for me or Whey Concentrate?
Also, I am about 213 pounds, only 190 in muscles, unfortunately, so is this the best thing to do: After each workout, consume about 50 grams of whey within 20 minutes of the workout?
Thanks!

Thats only if you don't workout or put your body in the situation where it needs to repair its muscles. If your body doesn't need the protein (no muscles to repair after workout), then its just gonna filter it out and throw it away.

*First of all I'm definitely not an expert. Just giving an opinion with some experience.

I would say thats a fairly good plan. The isolate is better for what your looking for. It is for lack of better words "pure protein" nothing really more. Your gunna get the highest amount of protein compared to calories.

BUT

You should never treat proteins as a religion. its more like a science. Experiment. screw around a lil. For example. my personal shake is a scoop of isolate (majority of my protein), and a half scoop of weight gaining protein. (added calories). --- i use this shake because im 150lbs, 5'10". I'm trying to pack on about 10 pounds of LEAN muscle. So im doing this by increasing calories just enough to gain some mass without much of it turning to fat.

For you since your trying to cut some extra fat off, i would consider maybe just maybe like a scoop and a half of whatever isolate you choose. for the average isolate that should be more than enough protein and very little calories. take that two to three times a day and you should start noticing a difference.

Good Luck, Train Hard..

Is it a good idea to lose fat and gain muscle mass at the same time? Or Should I first lose fat and then gain muscles?

Thanks.

do both. Gaining muscle should help you lose fat anyway.

Neither, your first idea is like chasing 2 rabbits:losing both (in 99%+ of natural cases)

and the latter idea is the one to go if you reverse the order.
When you gain muscle, you will gain some fat too.
so, it would be better to gain muscle before aiming to lose fat (bulking and cutting)
