Welcome To Sane Weight Loss

Slow Carb Writer

Hi… I’m Meredith


WELCOME to the website for all of us who have gained weight, particularly post-age-50, and just can’t seem to get rid of it. To acquaint yourself with what is offered here, it would be good scroll down and read the articles below first, and then go to the  News page and browse through some of the reports that are linked on that page.

And if you’ve gotten hooked on donuts, bear claws (my particular favorite), cookies, and other sweet or refined carb foods, do read the article linked below — this really can be an addiction.  We are not crazy!

LINK — Carbohydrates are Addictive.

This site will continue to post the most recent news and reports on how we get fat and what we can do to lose the fat and get fit and healthy. The “eat less and exercise more” thing we’ve been told doesn’t work for many of us. If that’s you, come back often and feel free to comment. I check comments every day and will respond. Let’s get a conversation going here that will support all of us as we deal with this once and for all.


I have just discovered and read two books that are REALLY a  must before we even try to begin a weight loss plan. I honestly can’t recommend these enough!

Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat by Greg Kuhn and Jumpstart Your Metabolism by Pam Grout.

These books are so helpful in getting our head in the right place — and we all know that if your head is not in this game, it’s simply not going to work.

    I am 51 years old – 5′ 4″ and weigh 159 lbs. My ideal goal weight would be 140 lbs. My fat mass is 38% and most of my fat is abdominal fat, fat and cellulite on my thighs and bra fat. I exercise 3 times a week for 1 hour each sessin and also attend zumba classes. My eating is very healthy at the moment I do not eat carbs but only vegetables, fish and meat. If at all I eat carbs it will be 1 slice of Weight Watchers multigrain bread. I am very disappointed, any suggestion would help

      Hycinth… I’m assuming that the routine you are on, exercise and eating, is not resulting in weight loss?

      If you are not doing weight exercise, I strongly suggest you add that to your routine. Building strength (and muscle) makes our bodies burn more fat. Just “exercising” does not burn any fat to speak of. So add 2 weight workouts a week to your routine along with walking or stationary biking for general overall health exercise.

      When you say you eat vegetables, do you mean greens? Be careful that you are not including starchy vegetables as they actually put weight on us! And are you getting enough FAT? Avoiding fat does not cause weight loss and is not good for our health. Some saturated fat is FINE.

      I would suggest that you get a carb counter, either book or online source, and keep track of your carbs. And make sure you are never hungry, meaning you eat as much as you want of your fish, meat and other proteins, including fat — cook foods in fat, use full fat salad dressings (just with NO sugar). Lots of low carb vegetables.

      How many carbs are in WW bread? You may have a body that can’t even take that… If their bread is made with FLOUR, I’d skip it. If you want a slice of bread every day, buy Ezekiel Bread (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Target and many other stores). It has a glycemic index of 36 and is not made with flour. Get the original variety, in the orange wrapper.

      When you count carbs, stay under, say, 30 per day for a week or two and see how that goes. Or maybe 40 if that’s too hard. That might jump-start weight loss.

      Let me know how it goes… Meredith
