Ha, so true. Being an army vet myself I agree long distance running is not good for your body over a long period of time. I know many older infantry guys who stay in and their knees and other joints are shot when they get into their 30s and 40s. Unfortunately it is the quickest way to build up your overall cardio endurance and (along with a diet) to lose weight. I know this firsthand.

I'd like to add that high fructose corn syrup is in most processed foods instead of sugar. I work in industrial sites, and I've worked at Cargill where HFCS is made. I can tell you that I have watched pigeons fly into some of the open stirring drums. I'm sure there's a percentage of foreign material that's allowed by the FDA. Think about that when you reach for a soda or some ice cream containing HFCS.
Very true!! Food is always better then any supplement but not always as convenient. I try my best to stay away from HFCs that's the reason everyone has diabetes

Edit Have some questions,

What workouts do you suggest to burn fat? i go to the gym almost everyday if not every other day
Are protein shakes good? i started lifting weights, how long does my workouts have to be?
and the protein shake i been taking some stuff called Pro Complex by Optimum will i see results with this product?
Heavy weight lifting, low reps high sets (5 x 5). Take whey immediately after you finish (milk protein is good too) and mix it with whole milk. Protein without fat is worthless. focus on compound free weight exercises like squat, deadlift, overhead press and bench press. 4 days a week a 45 - an hour a day should be sufficient. Focus on one of the aforementioned exercises and add supplemental exercises to it for a daily routine. That's the simple way to do it especially if you are a rookie lifter.

Agreed that HFCS is evil. European soda tastes so much better than ours. Granted we now have Mexican COke and Pepsi throwback here now.

Yep I never run. The human body tends to Burn more muscle then fat on long endurance runs.

Lift weights. Deadlift (and squat)!
