Hello Everyone.

Im 36 years old and up until last year i was weighing in at around 19 1/2 stone. I never considered that i lead an unhealthy life - dont eat that much, but put it down to getting older and not exercising that much.

Anyway - i decided to start some exercise and now ride my bike or run for at least 30 minutes every other day - keeping my pulse in the region of 130-145.

It worked for the first few months - and i managed to get down to 17st 2. Yes! Finally back into the 30's on waist size (38 though...but hey!)

Cue the last few months, no change in diet or exercise - its started going back up.

Been to the doctors and they just are telling me that its middle age spread, or that im fat becasue my diets all wrong.

So i Started keeping a food diary, and lo and behold - im consuming less than 1500 calories a day, coupled with exercise - AND Im getting fatter.

No one seems to want to listen to me, and all they can say is "eat less" or eat healthier. The fact is - if i eat less, ill have to stop eating!

dont get me wrong but doesnt less calories in, than is going out = weight loss?

Am i missing anything??, im getting to the point where im about to give up, its really getting me down.

Anyway - does anyone or has anyone seen anything like this before?
