I seem to be one of many with this problem, but most seem to be about a foot shorter than me... I'm a 6'4", 26-year-old male, and former athlete) and have been exercising 5-6 days a week, for about 90 minutes a workout. 2/3 of that is doing cardio, and about 1/3 is weight lifting, etc. I'm far more concerned with losing
weight/fat than building any type of significant muscle mass. I also have been eating very well, eating only what I have prepared for myself, and it's been weeks since I had any food from a restaurant (a.k.a. Food that has mystery ingredients). I am also positive I don't overeat or undereat.
I am a bigger build, and weighed 246 lbs. about 6 weeks ago. According to the BMI, even that is obese, but if you looked at me, you'd see a relatively in-shape person (I have a very broad chest) who wants to cut some off the midsection (I do have a small spare tire). That 246 lb reading was six weeks ago, and today, I'm at 256 lbs. I have not deviated from my workouts or diet, and my issue definitely is not a "muscle weighs more than fat" issue, because clothes are not fitting any better. In fact today, after 6 straight days of exercise and healthy eating, I feel like all I've been doing is eating pizza and sitting on my couch. I'm getting the results of someone who is doing the exact opposite. Am I facing a thyroid issue? Is there anything else I can do?
