comment If I am at risk for health condition caused by overweight/obesity, what's the fastest way to cure myself (reduce weight/fat/etc)?
personal and anecdotal = broscience. I know quite a few people that hired a nutritionist, trainer and followed a program at the gym to lose their weight. Can you without joining a gym? Yes. Can you with joining a gym? Yes. Most of it is going to depend on the personality of the person, and whether they have the mentality to go it on their own.

Mmm...it's not worth a downvote, but saying not to join a gym is impractical. Just wandering around your house hoisting random furniture won't do much, and there is no consideration for instruction or proper form both of which you can get at a gym.

comment Effect of High Muscle on 'Bands' of Body Fat
I couldn't find any scholarly articles, but it's what I remember from my ex phys classes in college, and there are tons of articles both "broscience" and more reputable on the web.

comment Knee Articular Cartilage pain
Cartilage damage is very slow and difficult to heal as there is no blood vessel supply, it all relies on diffusion. More exercise won't help. Torn cartilage may or may not repair on its own, and with it being worn as well, you are likely looking at a long healing time. Many people I've known with knee cartilage damage/injury eventually required some sort of surgery.

comment Glutamine to increase muscle mass through better recovery
Glutamine can easily be made in the body in sufficient quantities, unless you've got some sort of disease state, high stress or something else going on. And creatine is one of the very few supplements that has actually been a) proven to work, and b) classified as safe by just about every sports governing body known.

comment Are there benefits in having a post workout shake before a workout?
80 grams of protein is only 320 calories. Your body won't "tuck it away as fat". Also, 20-30 grams of protein per hour, for an 8 hour day is 160-240 grams of protein. That's 2-3g/kg of protein for an 80kg individual. Way overkill.
