As stated above.
I had a perm knee injury due to too much running with a perm unstable ankle with fracture which ends up damaging my knee over time.
Now I can hardly run 800 metres without having a sharp pain in my knee immediately and thus I can't do much cardio (Other than walking.)
Other than watching your diet and eating supplement what other things can I do to help...?
I certainly doesn't know anything other than cardio that would help as much but unfortunately I can't do much effective cardio due to this injury.

I'm assuming you lift weights, you should probably read up on circuit training"I shoot I score, He shoots I score" - Dan Gable
"Doesn't it say in the bible...
And on the fifth day God invented iron for man to lift. And lift it he did. And strong he did become. And good he found this to be. And God said unto He, go and lift and be strong and be good.
stop wishing and get lifting." - joekerr31

There are definately other ways to burn fat without high-impact cardio. (ie running)
I currently have a bad ankle and, like you, I can't run any meaningful distance without pain. Have you tried your knee out on an elliptical trainer? They're much easier on your joints but are still a great alternative to running. You could also try biking (either stationary or outdoors).
If you find those to be unsuitable for your injury (or even if they work great), make sure you do some form of weight training. Not only will you build muscle (which will burn calories), but if you keep up a nice pace throughout your workout you can really get your heart pumping.
Also, be sure drink lots of water. That's one of the things that works best for me!
