Anyone got really useful knowledge of how to maintain muscle mass? - Not just advice to get more calories - I have plenty, but just seem to burn what I eat.

Exercise is the only activity that will help maintain muscle mass.

Increase your protein intake

Eat protein with every meal and do weight bearing exercise.

Have you had your thyroid checked?

Definitely exercise!

I'll get a thyroid check and meanwhile add some weight bearing to the exercise - and protein! Thank you everyone.
