I currently weigh 14 stone 10lbs @ 6ft 2; hence my BMI is 27-28. I have tried everything I can think of to keep my weight down (Inc. low carb diets, which seemed to drain my energy), but in spite of this I seem to be gaining weight - all I can put this down to is muscle or fat (Hopefully not).
If it is muscle then your waist size is probably going to reduce. Are you wearing your belt on the same hole?

Your workout is pretty low impact to be honest, and you could easily get away with a swim a day. If you want to mix it up try indoor climbing walls and start to enjoy your sport.

The other thing is to wake up an hour earlier each day. You will burn surprisingly more calories just by shuffling around for an extra hour a day.

Apparently a 3 mile run, which is great for improving the health, doesn't really extend far into the optimum fat burning zone (depending on how fast you do it) as you have to go beyond the 20 minute mark. That's why I do a 10k run every month. Makes a big dent in body fat. But myself, being 30, I find it harder and harder to keep off the pounds. It's those apple turnovers! Bastards!

What a load of crap!

If there are no calories (food) to burn up to fuel the exercise, then you will burn stored body fat instead. So if you start with no fuel, you will burn body fat from the start... and if you have had a chinese, a KFC and a bucket of pasta in the last 3 hours, you wont get to burning stored body fat at any stage of your run.

So for the 20 minute bull shiz, you could prob sprint a fast mile and use up more calories than a 3 mile light run.

Fartlek training is defo the way for loosing weight. No eating after dinner!!

Just quoting what I heard elsewhere, and it seemed to work for me. There's just so much shiz out there. It's a Men's Health industry. Those magazines are a fcuking disgrace, so don't believe everything you read. Nothing is really gospel. If you're doing exercise, then that's good. If you do a lot, and eat properly, you'll lose fat. That's as much guarantee as you're gonna get. 'Rock Hard Abs in 4 weeks' my fcuking asshole!
