Is the Rosedale diet really the most optimal diet?

With all these diets out there and different ideas I sometimes have thoughts that this may not be the best diet for me at 20. Everyone around me is not very supportive and they say I am slowly killing myself. I am having difficulty living everyday without adversity. There is always constant arguments at the dinner table. I just want to live life without stressing about food.

How do learn to live and socialize? Eating out with friends is impossible nowadays.

Wha are some of your solutions to these problems?

    Great question .. and accept the reality that adversity is a part of life that you will never escape from, you will need to adapt and work through what comes your way. There will be good and bad days, I am 65 years old and still find this to be so.

    Don't expect everyone to accept your eating habits, do your best to not let them even family members dictate - be your own person. It is a choice only you can make. I have family and friends that just have to get over their lack of understanding and negativism.

    As far as is Dr. Ron's Diet being the most optimal, my answer is YEP! It has worked for me for over 3 years now. Naysayers will never know until they actually follow Dr. Rosedale's recommendations themselves. In time they will see the outward changes in you.

    • Another thing, give yourself time, do not expect over-nite changes.

    Hang in there John ... You can do this

    How do you manage when you go out and socialize with friends? Remember that I am 20 and this is the age where young people eat badly.

    Whether you are 20 or 60, you must be your own person and only you can decide that.

    No one seems to understand my diet and constantly criticize me.

    They will just have to accept it, their acceptance is not your problem.

    Do you need to lose weight? How did you find the Rosedale Diet?

    I have lost 75# doing this diet and it is a lifestyle for me. When I DO not eat on the diet - it to much SAT FAT or too many carbs or drink to much wine etc. I feel sick. Really.

    As to your comments about being accepted etc while being out eating or at a friends house for a party etc. I always took note - if I was "fitting in" then I was not following the diet and I was NOT losing weight and being a fat burner. When people made comments about what I was not eating etc. then I knew my feet were on the proper path.

    Additionally, it sounds like you might not have gotten to the point where your appetite is under control. For me, I would just not eat and say I was not hungry. And generally I was not. I would drink water or a mineral water.

    If you goal is to be healthy and live a long and wonderful life.. the learn to be a fat burner. It is a choice. There are no shortcuts.
