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.

Cleverin

I suffered from a bad flue at Year End.

It took me two weeks to fully recover from it.

My friend introduced and recommended this Cleverin which is manufactured by Taiko Pharmaceutical.

Chlorine dioxide is supposed to free air from bacterias and work as a deodorizer.

It sounds good to me to try it.

I opened a box, put powder in a bottle and screwed the cap.

This small bottle is good for 10 sqm room for a month.

Let’s try it!
