I want to loose a few kg of body fat to tone my chest, and i'm currently taking whey protein, now would this whey protein delay the loss of body fat or not?

Well the extra calories will mean you have to work longer to get the same calorie deficit as you would by not taking it. Not going to make a huge difference though and if you're doing weights to build up your chest then it's probably better to take it than not.

As cortez said, the calories will make fat loss harder, but if you stop taking it/don't have enough protein in your diet, then you may lose muscle mass when losing body fat

No idea at all
I've never lost body fat before, suppose the easiest way to work it out is try and work how many calories you burn doing cardio, then compare that to the amount in the whey, and just add it on to your existing cardio, or something along those lines

If you work hard enough, the fat will drop off anyway. Get some cardio in as well and make sure you eat clean.

whey isnt going to make a huge difference... just keep taking it... and do a LOT of cardio.

I do a lot of cardio, 30 mins at the start 30 mins at the end; 2km rowing in 7 mins, 10mins skipping, 10 mins running, and i do 10km rowing at the end, with a few mins of intense skipping/ running.

And the problem is, i'm just gaining weight mass, and the layer of fat is still there.

I think im either consuming too much protein or i'm over eating

TAKE THOSE SHAKES MAN!!! yes

definatly take them. your increased protein level will have your muscles repairing themselves after workouts.. what does that mean?? more energy being used... which is burning the fat from around the mucsle. . .

the calories are minimal, its less than 300 if u have two a day and you need at least 1500 cal a day to start losing the weight. if ur going over 2000 with the amount ur eating, cut some cals out to make room for the shakes as they are quite important. . .
