My New Customs

About a month ago, I consulted how to lose weight with my physical therapist.

He advised me to cycle for 20 minutes 2 – 3 times in a week.

Before exercising or starting a day/waking up, I was advised to take amino acid to recover from muscle fatigue quickly or prevent from any muscle fatigue.

I searched for the product and started taking Ajinomoto’s Amino Vital Pro which contains 3600 mg of amino acid.

I regularly take one sachet in the morning and before exercise; sometimes even in the evening because I can take as many as three sachets in a day.

It is recommended to take amino acid because our body cannot produce it; we need to obtain it from food.

After exercise, I was advised to take a lot of protein.

The quickest way to obtain protein is by drinking a protein drink.

Again, I searched for it; then start taking Meiji’s SAVAS Whey Protein 100.

This is my first protein to try and image of protein wasn’t good then.

I picked Meiji brand because Meiji is a major confectionery manufacturer in Japan and good in making chocolates.

This SAVAS Whey Protein 100 is a chocolate flavor.

When I start going to gym regularly for 20 mins bicycle ride, I became very hungry, and I mean, VERY hungry.

I was scared about my huge appetite which I couldn’t control at that time.

Well, I found out about a week later that I need to make a protein drink with three scopes of protein powder.

Since a scope is big, I thought it requires only one scope to make a protein drink.

Actually, I was making a watery protein drink then.

Now I don’t mind to replace my breakfast with a protein drink and I am fine with it.

Today, I finished my first pack of protein.

There are some days that I had a difficulty to control the appetite, but now I’m doing better.

I bought a new package: Meiji’s SAVAS Soy Protein with a yogurt flavor.

According to the package, it states “Weight Down” and “for Losing Weight”.

It also contains Garcinia, a popular weight-loss supplement.

It supposed to help me controlling my appetite and prevent from making fat – sound absolutely great!

I hope I would experience these effects.
