Hello doctor,

I am a 26-year-old male. My height is 172 centimeters, and my weight is 89 kgs. I wanted to lose weight, so I joined a gym near my house, but I lost only 1.2 kgs. I am not satisfied with the weight reduction rate, so I thought of taking protein supplements. Please suggest something.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Sometimes the weight remains the same, but the body becomes toned. I suggest you eat homecooked food, exercise regularly, and take whey protein supplements.
