Welcome, Perhaps you should read this and make adjustments to your present intake by increasing lean protein, grains/beans and legumes, and low fat dairy servings. Cut out any unhealthy foods which only give you empty calories and don't help you build lean muscle mass. snack chips, crackers, sodas and white breads all have high calories and you may think these would be good choices but they are unhealthy choices full of fats, sugars, sodium and artificial additives that won't help your body metabolize nutrients well.
Muscle weighs more than fat. You are getting fitter with all that biking and I'd bet dollars to donuts you are losing INCHES off of your body. Drop your caloric intake to between 1700-1900 three times a week and see if it helps. On the days you exercise make sure you eat to fulfill your caloric needs.
lol, where are you located in the World? Phentermine is related to the PhenPhen scandal from YEARS ago here in the US. Please google it and find out about all of the lawsuits related to Phetermine. This is why diet aids and pills to help keep you awake don't have it in them anymore in the US.
Eat lean, whole foods Eat smaller portions Exercise at least 1 hr daily more than you do right now, it doesn't have to be all at once, but it needs to be done every day Drink at least 64 oz of water a day

Time to start tracking your daily intake on the food and fitness planner...thinking you are eating right isn't the same as knowing. Track calories and exercise as required for your goal and you should find the culprits that are sabotaging your efforts.
