The Rosedale Diet
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
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.
foods, can also be hazardous to your health and I want you to avoid them (entirely if possible). When it comes to polyunsaturated fat, you must make the right choices or suffer the consequences. The downside of all polyunsaturated fats is that they are unstable, that is, they are easily oxidized, which can promote the formation of potentially toxic chemicals called free radicals. In limited amounts free radicals are fine; in fact, they are necessary for our survival. In excess, however, free
other types of fish are also fine (for a complete list of recommended fish, turn to page 105). It doesn’t matter whether fish is fresh, canned, or “fresh” frozen fish; the fat content remains the same. Try to buy wild rather than farm-raised fish. (Ask at the fish counter whether or not the fish is wild or farm-raised. You are more likely to find wild fish at health food stores or fish markets.) Farmed fish are typically raised in unnatural conditions, and may be given antibiotics to prevent
arthritis, it can relieve some of the discomfort. I recommend taking 500 milligrams of glucosamine twice a day if necessary (but generally not more). Cetyl Myristoleate. The supplement is lesser-known than glucosamine, but is also good for symptomatic relief. Cetyl myristoleate is derived from mistletoe and is an anti-inflammatory. Take one 500-milligram capsule daily. Afterword Now that you have been following the Rosedale Diet, based on the experiences of my patients, I can make the
