How, why and where am I putting on weight?
3 years ago, due to a long period of unemployment, I had the pleasure of being able to train in the Austrian hills for between 2 and 5 hours whenever I wanted (6 days a week). I got down to 72 kilos (always been slim, a touch over 6ft tall). Now, due to work, I go out about 3 times a week for between 2 and 3 hours plus twice a week in the gym (NOT body building!) and weigh 85 kilos. I understand that long rides are a great way of burning the calories, but I can't say I look any bigger when I stand in front of the mirror. If anything my legs are skinnier. My stomach looks a little fuller but not 13 kilos bigger! My diet now is pretty much the same (with less chocolate). Where is this weight hiding itself? Is my brain getting heavier due to the increase in wisdom that comes with ageing?
