Exercise: About 40 minutes every weekday, including HiiT which is intense. I intend to do more as well.

As for food - I'm no salad muncher but I don't eat much junk food either. Just about everything I eat (mostly Indian curries) is made from scratch - albeit by somebody else and then (sometimes) frozen. I mentioned in another thread the other day that I gave up on eating just fruit in the evenings. I was going to bed hungry and I'm not so dedicated to being in good shape that I'm willing to do that. I'd rather have a belly.

I haven the same problem eating fruit as it leaves me hungry unless it's after a big meal.

In addition to a rigourous exercise regime 6 days per week, I can also recommend intermittent fasting.

I don't think I would enjoy feeling hungry but I get it works for others

Truth be told still feel somewhat like a fraud claiming I had depression seen as it was self diagnosed and about specific things.

Particularly when other people (like those who have opened up on here before) suffer from it constantly but also canít even put an exact reason on why they feel the way they do - they just do.

They have to live with it rather than solve it.

I imagine that can be completely soul destroying.

Shouldn't feel like your thoughts/feelings at the time weren't justified. Thing is with depression is that it's typically diagnosed by you hitting a certain score based on how you're feeling over the past 2 weeks. Might just find for some people the questionnaire is conducted at a good period meaning they're not diagnosed as being depressed. On top of that it's a scale, where you might only have mild symptoms, but are still classified as depressed - you're still not a fraud in that sense (just less depressed than some other people).

Glad to hear you're doing better anyway!

Have had a go with this before, not a huge breakfast eater generally though so was a) quite easy and b) probably didn't miss out on many calories

I eat more healthily and exercise more than I used to. Ditched the fry ups, processed meat and general rubbish food except for treats at the weekend. Had years of eating shit and sitting on my arse so had to change it. I walk to work and move much more now. Gone from a 40 inch waist to 36 which I hadn't been for many years.

Good story and fair play for changing things as its too easy to continue eating high calorie junk food and not exercising.

I weigh about the same as when I started exercising regularly a few months ago. Yet, I am visibly more muscular (which is heavier than fat) but I also still have a belly. If anything it's gotten bigger.

I don't get it.

Eat reasonably healthily (V. rarely have takeaways, don't eat a huge amount of meat and very little processed, I am quite lucky as I like veg and salad) and probably cycle c.180-100 miles a week (combination of Zwift and outside at the weekends).

My downfall is booze, drink too much wine and its too easy if day has been shit to just open a bottle. I've always had a gut, even as a kid, but notice harder to lose weight as I entered my 40's.

Need to get some weight off as signed up to a 100 mile ride early next month with lots of climbing which is going to hurt with my present post lockdown lumber.

Apart from cutting out the obvious junk food, sugary snacks & Alcohol I keep reading that a high protein diet can help

You've missed the point.

I now have MORE muscle than before (which weights more than fat does), and my belly is still the same size - but I still weigh the same.

It doesn't add up.

All I can think is you must have lost a lot of body fat elsewhere in your body and the muscle gained has coincidentally kept your weight the same other than that I have no idea.

Possibly just your perception of it? I fluctuate between maybe a few pounds and a stone over the weight I'd ideally like to be. When I'm at my heaviest I see the definition under the fat. When I'm at my trimmest all I see is the remaining fat
