Disproportionately losing mass. - July 3rd 2018, 10:52 AM

[SIZE="a"]How do I make up for it? I'm now carrying the vast majority of my weight around my waist, from my lower abdomen to right below my chest. Everything else is getting thinner, and I'm worried this is muscle mass I am losing rather than fat.

I should note that I restrict more than binge eat these days, so does that have anything to do with it? But it isn't like my weight is going down by much, unless I get outside and walk or something.[/size]

I'm unsure if your disproportionate loss of mass could be contributed to muscle loss. It's possible, but I don't have anything to back that up. Alternatively, if you haven't lost weight, then you may notice a swollen stomach if you experience constipation or bloat. However, there could be other reasons and since we aren't professionals, then your best option would be to consult with your doctor.

In order to make up for it, you may want to address disordered eating habits, and try to eat regular, healthy meals. For ideas on what makes up a balanced diet, you can check out the Eat Well Guide from the NHS (UK health service). You can also discuss this with your doctor, dietitian or therapist.

While it's important to exercise (roughly 150 minutes per week) it's also important to use and strengthen muscles. Push ups and sit-ups are known to help with this but for more ideas, you can check out this exercise guide. Be sure to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regimes and more so if you have any unhealthy eating habits (e.g. restricting and bingeing).

Hope others can provide you with more insight!

In your scenario, it seems like your body structure is different. As per my suggestion you can consult gym trainer who can guide you to get rid of it.
