I have the Metabolic Syndrome (or am the Syndrome); heart disease; interstitial lung disease; chronic fatigue and fibro; spinal stenosis, etc. I am morbidly obese and am so very tired of the consummate e-mails about people's credentials. I am 49 years old and need to lose weight. Have tried low carb diets and just don't stick for me. I am unable to exercise much at all due to pain.

Please float me some reading materials, books or plain old good advice regarding a plan for life that includes weight loss. Thanks for your time.

macrobiotic diet helped me to loose weight, before I started with physical activities. It is also very easy to follow, if you do not obsess to much with yin and yang stuff. Just follow simple rules: cooked whole grains, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, fruits. You can eat as much as you like, and you will loose weight, without being hungry. Of course, since you are vegan, you will not eat fish, which is allowed in small quantities in macrobiotic diet, mostly for men.
This is macrobiotic cooking Bible, helped me a lot to figure out what to eat

PS: since you have health issues, maybe it is good idea to have macrobiotic consultant/ doctor, but they are very expensive

AND LOW CARB DIETS ARE NONSENSE! (GOOD) CARBS ARE OUR BEST FRIENDS AND MAIN ENERGY SOURCE!

Several years ago I lost 48 lbs and have kept most of it off. I have a "slow metabolism". This link on blog explains how I did it:

While I did that I made sure my food choice was from whole vegan foods:
