I am 91kg on 2nd January now i am 89kg, lost 2kg in 3 week with running 2.4km everyday or night. depend shift work. feels kind of refreshing each day by day. sometime really tired if i over do it.

The problem is i don't know what type of Nutrition should i drink or eat

- GNC salesman told me i should get Endurox R4 for my Muscle Recovery after my run
- A friend told me that i should try this Nutrition Shake Above it will block my meal (Not sure if its true but it has Oats inside it)
- I was thinking of getting Magnum Heal so i can lose fat faster and able to control my diet with it's help

any advise would be appreciated
thank you very much

All the so "nutrition" u mentioned are just supplements. Supplements to aid in muscle recovery, etc. They aren't vital stuff if your goal is to actually lose weight. Work on a calorie deficit diet and you should most certainly lose weight. Bear in mind there is no short cut supplement which will make you lose fats overnight. You need to put in consistent hard work. Whats worth the prize is worth the fight!

Good effort in running 2.4km on a daily basis. That's a good start. But there ARE some things you should be informed of first.

That is, your 2kg weight loss is probably all water weight, i.e. I'm very sure you'll have to do something about your diet before you consider taking any supplements at all - which you don't. You'd be better off investing your money elsewhere and the moment you stop consuming these products you'll see your weight bouncing back up.

There's no sugar-coating this. Do understand that if you wish to lose weight/fat mass you will have to do more than just run 2.4km everyday or night. In fact, 2.4km might not even be enough. We don't know how you pace your 2.4km so it'd be hard to calculate but you would definitely need at least 30-45 minutes of steady-state running.

Another thing you should know - suddenly cutting down the amount of food you eat won't be effective either. Your body's metabolism will stall and in fact you'll feel more drained.

i would say there is no short cut or magic pill that u can take and lose fats.

u need to put in hard work to see results. supplements can aid in recovery but will not do wonders..

There are many types of food u can buy for breakfast if you are on a diet to lose weight. Simple examples are wholemeal bread or oatmeal.

At the hawker centre, keep the fried and oily food to a minimum. For example opt for plain white rice when eating chicken rice.

Besides working out, you also need a healthy diet if you want to lose weight. No matter how hard you work out, if you don’t eat healthy you won’t see the results you expect. Eat preferably organic diet, I don't prefer supplements to burn fats of body.

Start reading my friend. I understand where all this advice comes from, and its nice to follow a two liner from someone else, but you want the knowledge, you got to spend time READING and RESEARCHING for yourself.

Link - Just one of the excellent articles on the topic, that is way better than any two liner any of us here can give you.

And as far as losing fat is concerned, I am convinced a combination of resistance training (aka weightlifting that really hits you like a brick wall effort), and a relatively small portion of low intensity cardio/HIIT will help you lose a lot of fat.

I myself dropped from around 20% to 11.5% fat with virtually nothing but weightlifting, but gained over 8 kg in weight. So I am personally very biased against the general obsession with running. And that's coming from an ex-70.3 triathlete.

The fat is a bank account you have accumulated over the years.
To empty or reduce this bank account, you need to have more withdrawals than deposits.
Dieting, plus exercises, go hand in hand in reducing this bank account. You can't do without one or the other.
Running is a good start. Record the distances of your every run, and the time to complete each run. Then measure your progress over time and develop a goal (what distance to achieve in what time, within how many months).
Next, eat right. Cut out the 3 whites - flour, sugar, salt. Cut the carbo - rice, noodles etc. Take some kind of Protein supplement after your workouts/runs, cos you do not want to lose muscles through exercises. (Remember, your heart etc are muscles!)
Determination is KEY! Aim for some results when you first start. With results, you get more determined and encouraged.
