Your fatty liver shouldn't prevent your fat loss. Fatty liver correlates with IA fatty tissue, to the best of my current knowledge. That's the "bad" kind of body fat, but if you are looking for weight loss, it's the "good" kind, since it's easier... (more)

Seems ok, but try it for a little while and see how you fee. Not sure you need 48g whey protein, rather than just eat a little more. You are already getting a lot of protein, so I don't see the need to supplement.
