The Rosedale Diet

Finally—the ultimate diet for fast, safe weight loss, lifelong health, and longer life, based on more than twenty years of research and the latest findings on appetite and weight. Metabolic specialist Ron Rosedale, M.D., has designed the Rosedale Diet to regulate the powerful hormone leptin, which controls appetite and weight loss by telling the brain when to eat, how much to eat—and when to stop. New research shows that leptin may be one of the body’s most important hunger control mechanisms. Control leptin, and you control your weight.

Most people’s leptin levels are out of control, causing them to overeat and to store fat rather than burn it. The only way to flip the “hunger switch” back to normal is through a diet high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, saturated fat, and trans-fatty acids often found in processed food—plus just 15 minutes of daily exercise.

Dr. Rosedale’s 21-day diet plan is simple: Just select from the many foods on his “A” list, including “healthy-fat” foods such as avocados, nuts, olives, lobster, crab, shrimp, goat cheese, Cornish game hen, venison, and more. Then gradually add foods from the “B” list, such as steak, lamb chops, fruits, beans, and so on. A 28-day menu plan and more than 100 recipes, such as Dilled Salmon and Fresh Asparagus, Gingery Chicken Soup, Lasagna, Black Bean Wrap, Raspberry Mousse Cake, and French Silk Pie, make eating the Rosedale way deliciously easy.

Weight loss is just the beginning. The Rosedale Diet will make you feel satisfied, reduce cravings, and put you in control of your “sweet tooth.” It can even help eliminate or reduce heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and other conditions associated with “natural” aging, as many of Dr. Rosedale’s patients can attest. You’ll find inspiring stories from them—and the power to control your weight and improve your health—in this groundbreaking book.

Dr. Ron Rosedale’s book takes us past today’s barrage of scientific diet books to a new level based on lower carb, lower protein, and higher “healthy” fats. Healthy fats are: olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil, ghee, coconut oil, and butter. Current changes in Dr. Rosedale’s book can be read on his website: Write this down inside your book so you can refer to it when you have a question not answered in the book. There is even a PDF file titled: Here are some basic rules to follow that will keep you on a path to ultimate health and longevity”. It’s 4 pages that I had laminated, front and back, at my office supply depot. I had my book converted to a spiral bound book so the pages lay flat….cost under $5.00 at the office supply depot.

I like the fact that we change our fats to “good fats”. We can eat whenever we are hungry….that is a foundation of the diet. Yet, it still works w/o counting calories, carbs, fats….we are free to enjoy magnificently healthy food. It is a bit of work to prepare these foods. But, after awhile, I began to prefer my home prepared Rosedale foods instead of eating out. I am still learning how to make food in advance and keep a supply on hand so I don’t need to cook so often. Hint: bake 4 to 6 packets of individual fish servings in heavy-duty aluminum foil to eat later….add a couple teaspoons of healthy oil to the packet, and some herbs/seasonings, and voila! Gently re-heat food – for example, the packets of fish above – in a 2 quart saucepan double boiler (buy a double boiler insert for your saucepan) rather than using a microwave. Works beautifully/reheats quickly. The protein amounts suggested by Dr. Rosedale are lower than what I had thought were acceptable. For me, my ideal protein at a meal is about 4 oz uncooked or 3 oz cooked. Before this book, I would eat anywhere from 4 oz to 6 oz or more at a meal. This contributed to my not being able to easily lose the weight. Please be aware that he says “Limit saturated fat for the first three weeks”. Some of you have ‘dissed’ the book because you say the book and recipes don’t adhere to the Rosedale principles of “no saturated fat’. Be sure you read everything in the book! That isn’t entirely true! After the first 3 weeks, we are allowed to eat more meats with saturated fat, but be sure to not eat them excessively. Moderation. For me, I allow myself bacon once a week at breakfast. Maybe a hamburger patty or pork sausage once/twice a week. Always with a teaspoon or two of a good fat. I keep reminding myself to limit my fat to a teaspoon or two – possibly 3 teaspoons once in a while – of good fat….and not to add fat by the Tablespoonfuls. At dinner, I do allow myself a full Tablespoon of a healthy oil — olive or avocado oil in my salad dressing. Bottled dressings generally are made of bad fats, and often contain sugar. Every other week, make a couple pints of a fresh Rosedale homemade salad dressing, pages 216-219-220-226-230-232-240-242-244-249 – store in a Ball canning jar with lid, and have it all week on your salad. Something about my hunger has shifted where I’m feeling more normal around food. The handful of almonds works very well for me when I need a nutritious snack. I can tell my leptin is at a normal level that took away the “crazy hunger” I had been having for many years. I couldn’t stop eating junk foods. Now I have what I would call normal hunger. The Rosedale Diet allows us to eat when we are hungry. I do that easily now, and do not experience the “crazy hunger” any longer. In fact, sometimes it takes quite a while to feel physical hunger. That is fine with me. I am indebted to Dr. Rosedale for this change in my way of eating. I trust what he has written in this book. I only wish he was still here in Denver where I live as I would like to be able to go to a doctor who understands the science of “low carb, higher fat”. My current primary care doctor’s quite scary suggestion, when I visited her for diet advice, was to put me on the latest prescription drug for weight loss. No, thank you. She doesn’t practice holistic or integrative medicine. Since I work in healthcare, I understand diabetic patients and their diets. As well as the stories they tell themselves about what is “acceptable” for a diabetic to eat….based on the very outdated diabetic food plan that many senior citizens still follow…full of sugar and carbohydrates of all kinds. Dr. Rosedale busts out of the past generations of diabetics being told they can eat what they want, eat sugar, etc It also isn’t as expensive as you might think. I’ve stopped eating out very much and prefer to prepare my own meals, which are pretty quick for me. I’m not following the recipes so much any more, I keep it very simple. Try it for a couple weeks with an open mind. The supplements can make it more expensive…but, the way I see it is: we take these recommended supplements to “fine tune” our body and get it into optimum fat burning mode, and get our leptin levels in a normal range, so that we can continue burning fat. Many of us are highly desirous of getting to an optimal weight. The food plan and supplements help us do that. We can use the supplements for a month or two and taper off if you find it too expensive. Experiment to see what happens for you, and to your body. Highly recommend this book. Wondering why it never became a best seller?
