I want to lose about 3 or 4 kilos, but I also want to build muscle. Would a high protein diet and low carbs be good for me?

Balanced diet best. You don't actually need a LOT of protein in your diet to build muscle. What you need is a BALANCED diet, including fat and carbs. There is no need to eat large amounts of protein because most of it will be wasted. Follow a balanced diet sheet for your age, sex, and BMI.
