I would discuss this with her doctor. Being overweight is depressing. I gained weight on prozac, I could look at food and gain weight. There are other meds that don't always cause weight gain. I would talk to the doctor about your concerns.
Walking helps, cutting out soda if she is drinking it. Switch to water. Lemon makes water easier to drink, plus gives you vitamin C. I walk and exercise as much as possible. Can you get her back into sports? That would help too.
I hope that things work out for all of you. I really think talking to the doctor about the side effects of the medication. How long has she been on the remeron? If it has been just a couple of weeks, this side effect could go away. But many anti depressants do cause weight gain.
