    As per a post in a recent thread, I'm almost 7 stone down.

    7 stone! That's epic! Well done!

    I've not done any events this year, so my weight has started creeping up. I started eating more healthily and exercising a bit more a fortnight ago and have dropped a couple of kilos. I probably need to drop about 10 more though.

    Re: Need to lose belly fat!

    What I've found helps is increasing the amount of protein and cutting down the amount of carbs. I don't subscribe to the whole keto/paleo diet, although if that works for you then great. I've just found that snacking on protein makes me feel fuller for longer. A packet of chicken roll from Tesco contains about the same calories as a slice of bread, but makes me feel far fuller.

    It's not cheap though....

    Re: Need to lose belly fat!

    I am in the opposite camp to a lot of people (trying to gain muscle weight, rather than losing weight). been training consistently since I was 19 (six years ago).

    Ultimately there is no one package fits all kind of diet/exercise regime, your body will respond differently with certain foods than other's will. The basic science of consume less energy than you expend always applies however. A major obstacle is too overcome your cravings, to do this you can try by limiting treats to one or two days a week, read the nutrition labels of all food packaging and do your research if you are going to eat out.

    A lot of people have trouble with portion sizes, so for example someone will feel they have not eaten enough because they only had half a dinner plate's worth of food. A good way to improve this is to fill the plate with more vegetables/high fibre foods and less calorie dense foods like starchy potato based or pastry. Snacking is also where a lot of people fall short, ask yourself "do you really need to snack on something" ultimately the main struggle is mental and not physical. Drink plenty water as sometimes hunger is actually just a sign you are not hydrated enough, also drinks like black coffee seem to help me.

    Regarding exercise, find something that you are likely to keep up. Something that gives you a sense of satisfaction after you have achieved a certain target, make it more about ability and improving on a skill rather than focusing so much on it just being there for weight loss. Regarding body fat it is often recommended to do shorter intense training sessions rather than long sessions, look into High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Personally I prefer to do my cardio sessions as HIIT and my resistance training (my main training) for longer.

    Hope this helps someone, I imagine a lot of this has already been mentioned in this thread but thought i'd just drop my bit. if you have a question just ask.

    Re: Need to lose belly fat!

    For the past two years, it has been easy come, easy go. My metabolism is definitely that of a mere mortal, which means that eating a lot definitely see my weight explode.. thougha well controlled diet and exercise routine can still see it crash.

    Which mean after hitting record high fatness over the past 10 months, mostly gained in the past 3-4 months I have worked it back down mostly down to my "normal" weight (not ripped, but within acceptable body fat percentage). I am still planning to get leaner.

    No gym access so it is mainly so I rely primarily on rope skipping, push-ups, crunches and squats (and some variations). Not trying to get big, just lean on time for winter (sports).

    Re: Need to lose belly fat!

    I'm in a bit of a dire situation. I am on high dose steroids over the long term. On top of this I'm also crippled compared to what I used to do - I used to be able to run 12 miles with a nice heavy backpack quite happily and then do a days work at the end of it. I used to do martial arts and fight people for fun and I used to lift weights. Then I broke my back and in the last 3 years I've just managed to get rid of my walking stick. I still can't walk long distances without crippling pain and I'm on massive doses of opiates in order to keep me working, never mind anything else. And with the steroids, they screw with your sugar metabolism so in order to keep functional at work I need to not get hungry or I make mistakes. I work in a hospital and mistakes do not go down well. I've been offered medical retirement but I absolutely refuse to give up.

    If anyone has any experience or ideas of how to prevent weight gain on high dose, long term steroids when the ability to exercise is gone I'd love to hear it as whilst I'm not fat, I'm slowly but surely getting there.

    Re: Need to lose belly fat!

    Well if your back is knackered you need to do no/low impact stuff I guess. Swimming and maybe invest in a turbo trainer? Zwift makes turbo trainers more tolerable.
