Fat loss program

OK so considering my continuous back issues, I think I'll be out of the gym for a while and I'd want to kind of do pullups and pushups and planks with dynamic leg work (jumps, plyos etc) for some period of time, while trying to lose weight.

Training wise, how would you structure such a thing? I'd like to do the calisthenics work for "strength" and then do jogging/cardio work, and maybe some interval sprints (if I have where to do them, they are now asking money to get to the track).

Would you do long distance running (long distance for me, that's a mile or so) one day and then 2 days later, interval work? KB swings? (assuming my back allows me to do them)

PS. Come to think of it, maybe I should just give up. After 8 years of non stop squatting I'm pretty much at the same level of absolute strength (if not worse) than for example 2-3 years ago, while being 10 kg heavier. Not to mention my vert is 24-28 inches off one leg and ~24 off two.

So when you look at this, after years of training (consistently), you can only conclude it doesn't work and it's a waste of time while also destroying my body. We like to come here on this forum and pretend it works but the reality is that it only works for people who actually are made to respond to training and don't have ultra-extreme depression and terrible nutrition and 0 money and a ton of other issues.

Maybe I should revert back to being a skinny-fat nerd with no life AND no training on top of it, it kinda comes naturally to me.

ultra-extreme depression

this is the heart of the matter. you need to take care of yourself, and first and foremost that means getting help for your depression. whatever that means for you, focus on that for a while. that can be borderline-useless advice for a depressed person, i know, but it's the best advice i can think to give. training will still be there.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

I know I know... I'll try... if I fix my back and I lose some weight while getting my mind a bit better, that would make a ton of difference from all angles. I think these are the three actual important things that should matter right now.
