i remember you from a few months ago. you said you could run 100 m in like 11.5 seconds. if thats even true, than your weight issues dont matter. it will even make things easier, because you'll be able to push people around with your weight.

Haha.. More exercise, less food? No food after 6.00pm? Do you go to the gym? Lifting weights accelerates your metabolism so much, and the more muscle the more fat you burn so its double the good.. Do some cardio..

Intensive cardio work outs and a complete healthy diet.
Fruits, vegetables, and good protein don't cancel out deserts and snacks. If you're extremely serious and committed you need to pretty much eliminate all of the bad things from your diet that do nothing to help you (chips, candy, popcorn, pop tarts, etcetera). This combined with the right kinds of exercise should guarantee some loss of excess fat. changing your eating routine is half the battle. if you can snack on things like carrots, grapes and celery instead of unhealthy foods you will be doing yourself a favour.

if your diet is already good it's going to be all about the correct excersizes (I'm not too educated on what types specifically are the best)

How can you be 2 kg overweight?

For one, if you run 100m in 11.5 seconds, theres a good chance that your not over weight, your simply a muscular build. If your using a BMI calculator to work out how much weight you should weigh, then its wrong. BMI calculators only work for average people who live average amounts of active lifestyle, a footballer/athlete is most certainly not average, so take things with a pinch of salt.

Look at yourself in the mirror and think, do i look fat? when you move is there alot of flab or is it all muscle and toned? As a footballer you need to find the right balance of muscle, because a body builder build is going to do you no good when your trying to run 90 minutes, whilest having nothing will mean your easily pushed off the ball and will be very slow and weak.

Ideally a footballer will want to have as low amount of body fat as available so that any weight he is carrying is the bare essentials and everything else is pure muscle which cancels itself out by been able to more than shift its own weight around.

If you have got a very muscular build, take care to not get over built as i said, because you may be lightening fast and strong, but you will only hold that tempo up for 5-10 minutes at tops at best. A good checkpoint to have is Ronaldo, he is pretty much the perfect definition of athletic build, hes the right width and weight for his height and he is completely toned with little to no fat.

Another key pointer ill give you is to make sure you don't neglect your legs in training/weight lifting. If you end up with a very strong upper body, not only does it mean that your body is out of proportion and your legs will be under more stress than they should be, but it also raises your centre of gravity, making you more clumsy and unbalanced. Messi and Ronaldo may both have athletic and muscular upper bodies, Ronaldo in particular, but on the other end of the spectrum, both have absolutely massive legs which lowers their centre of gravity giving them more balance and ultimately more speed and endurance.

In my opinion the BMI system is a bag of bollocks, some professional rugby players have BMI which says there overweight but there not, its just pure muscle, i wouldn't worry about it as long as you dont have much fat.

Today as I think that almost people are facing this problem but according to me if you take protein supplement than you can maintain it.....
