How do I tell if I'm ready?

I found the Rosedale diet in the beginning of May and that's when I started it, but had problems working out the proteins and fats. However, by the end of June I got it all together and have been on it since the 30-Jun-2017 -about 5 weeks now.

I have felt fine and was never out of energy and never felt bad starting out. But that might have been because I switched into the Rosedale diet straight from being on the Atkins diet for some time. The change was only in the proteins and fats - not that much dietary change.

It is now early August and would like to find out how to tell if I am now ready to consume some saturated fats like the fats in beef. In other words how can I tell if I am converting fats into energy efficiently now. What are the signals of readiness?

    You are ready, is my guess without giving it a second thought. Try to keep the meats you eat if you can grassfed, without all the added hormones, though we know that is getting harder and harder. Try it a few times a week and see how you feel in your stomach.

    Thank you Fiona for your response. I thought I felt too good to be not converting fats well since I am now on about 80% fats in my diet. So, I take that signals that I am converting fats acceptably is the length of time on the diet and feeling well.

    My wife has also started the Rosedale diet. She has the same foods I do. Oddly enough, she is not converting from the Atkins diet and felt OK since she started. It is now about 6 weeks she started.
    The reason she started is because her cholesterol is up a little (6.5mmol/L) and other markers are also up. She doesn't want to take statins and is due to go back to the doctor for a blood test in another 6 weeks.
    Thank you again for your response.
