I've been b a t t l i n g overweight far 10 years, ever since my hysterectomy. I'm 62 now, 5-foot-fi and weighed around 125 lo 130 pounds until 10 years ago. That's when 1 had surgery and the trouble began. I've been on the Weight Watchers plan but gained on (heir allotment of HOO calories a day. Only by culling the diet in half to 700 calories a day could 1 lose weight. Al this level it look me Id weeks lo lose six pounds. I ' v e k e p t r e c o r d s o f everything 1 eal for months and weighed it all on postage scales to calculale my calories. Doctors just biush aside my data and give me diet lisls lhat cause me lo gain weight, nol lose it Dieticians are just as bad. When I get a 1200 calorie diet with 80 grams of protein, I start gaining weight. Other than Ihis problem I am healthy and very active. My thyroid is on the low side bu'i not abnormal or low enough to require a supplement. Just what can a person do? Have you any suggestions for us hungry, lat people? DEAR READER - You are not alone. 1 must conclude from the rest of your letter that you are indeed an active person. The secret in manv cases such as yours is nol (he diet or Ihe daily activity, ft is how much muscle, nol fat, thai you have. This is the one Ihing that most weight control plans have ig- n o r e d , a n d i l c a n b e devaslating. The basic laws of energy mean thai you must use Ihe energy you consume, or il will be slored as fat. Most people think that means running il olf or working it off. However, Ihe body normally uses far more calories just silting around than il does from daily activity. Your body has simply quit using as many calories at rest as it once did. and Ihe usual reason is because of loss of muscle mass. Those who w a n t a d i e l program can write to me at P.O Box 1551. Radio City Sla- Berry's World lion, New York. N:Y. 10019 and ask for (lie booklet on losing weighi. Send 50 cents to cover cosls. Women tend lo have a drop in Ihe use of calories al rest after age 40. and the middle-age spread begins. Lots of light activity, including housework and walking, may not load the muscles enough to maintain their size. They begin to shrink and the body starts changing from muscle to fat. Soon you are in a vicious circle. The less muscle and the more fat you have the fatter you get, and the less energy you need al rest. 1 approve of walking and similar endurance exercises, but in a case like yours, a good m u s c l e b u i l d i n g a n d maintenance program is needed.

Kecleriil Kescrvp Hoard chiiirnuui Arthur F. Burns has tohl Congri'bb. Hintis said Ihe low work incentives which arise from a liigli rate nf laxalioi) are responsible for low worker productivity. This, in turn, helps account for the nation's persistent problem \\ith inflation, he said. Like other top government nffk-ials flurns saw inflation -- nnl recession --as America's mnsl serious Inny range problem. "We cannnt realistically expect to regain lasting prosperity until businesses and consumers glimpse some end to the in- llation lhal has hcen damaging our economy." Hums testified before t h e J o i n t Economic Committee. He said a typical working man w i t h three dependents gave up only about 1 per cent of his paycheck in federal income anil Social Security taxes 25 years ago. Last year, lhal same worker surrendered 13 per cent. Such a "large increase in the absorption of private incomes by government pnscs a threat to individual incentives." liurns said, especially when taxes levied on working people "arc then transferred lo others who remain idle."
