  •  AB, try losing the sugar from your diet. I mean (3+ / 0-)

    anything that causes the sudden secretion of insulin is going to put on weight: including potatoes, white bread and esp. sweet drinks. A slow insulin rise is best.

    If your library has a copy of R. Lustig's (he's an M.D.) book "FAT CHANCE: beating the odds against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity and Disease", it's worth a read. It's really very good.

    good luck
