1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

I'm going to assume that the cause has been identified as metabolic syndrome or recovering from alcohol abuse.
This is very good idea as a (maybe the) mainstay of your recovery should be aerobic fitness.

In brief: Whey protein

It is safe to take proteins with fatty liver.
If you are obese and qualify for weight loss surgery then you should consult a bariatric surgeon. If you already had surgery whey proteins are part of a post bariatric diet.
