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.
