Indeed, otherwise I would have added a Harley to the stable!

I'd rather see a picture of your Moto Guzzi - but we're turning this into a bike thread .... or is that Harley your friends crutch to get through his midlife-crisis?

Re: Emotional distress - what to do?

the specialists say its only 30% about the exercise and 70% your diet... I made some adjustments to reduce my calorie intake and switched from beers to rum.

Are you actually thinking about doing something about it, or only interested in witty replies from your resident EF comedians?

I think he's looking for witty answers as on previous threads, I seem to recall he said he was a professional in the field of nutritional science (or similar).

perhaps something for you.

I've been thinking about doing something about it for a while. The thinking's the easy part...

TBH I'm not sure why you think the two parts of your question are mutually exclusive.

Re: Emotional distress - what to do?

True enough. I had a similar situation when I hit your age, and I also did something about it!

Simples.

I'd recommend the Greifenseelauf for you in September.... plenty of time to train, 21km around the pond, not very competitive, ten thousand entrants, lots of atmosphere... might help you shift a few kg.

Failing that, look up Vita Parc Cour's ... those exercise regimes you find in the forest, takes but an hour and a good way to combine fitness and a bit of outdoors.

You can't lose weight by running.

I'm a sample size of one but this is what I have found:

I don't eat more even after a four hour hill run.
I don't lose weight either running.
I can lose weight when I don't eat (when I am ill, for example).

If you want to lose weight, you need to eat more healthily, get out of any snacking habits and if you drink a lot, drink less.

However, running, or any other aerobic exercise is great for the mind*, the body and the soul and gives you an immense sense of well-being.

*new evidence has shown that physical exercise is good for the long-term health of the brain.

Lots of people who have never run recommend the 0 to 5K plan to start running (like most things that actually work, it's free).
