Rosedale Diet

Ken, I'm starting Rosedale again, this time with a much lower protein intake, and a much lower food intake all the way round. This seems to be the ticket for me. I am finally getting the message that my body functions best on minimal intake. I remember that you had a post somewhere about what you ate in a day, but I could not find it. Could you be kind enough to share, again, your daily intake. I think it could be useful. Thanks so much!

    I am 5' 10' tall

    I maintain my daily protein around 50g to 56g not more than 18g per meal.

    As far as carbs, I avoid non-fiber as much as possible - for the past 2 years I have mainly ate broccoli and or cauliflower but very little, maybe 2g to 5g total for the day, however, there are days that I do not have any fiber carb at all.

    (If you do some research you will find that carbs in general ARE NOT essential, the body can make what it needs from protein/fat) My understanding is that the body can make around 400g per day if needed. Now that being said, not everyone will agree nor would they want to do carbs the way I do.

    I am aware that many will argue that one needs at least 20g of carbs and can not make it without it. For me, I do not agree and have done quite well these past couple years.

    I no longer have an X amount of fat that I maintain, I let hunger dictate this. My fat (oil) is Coconut or MCT) plus whatever fat comes from my protein (salmon)

    I do take supplements of good quality. The main thing that I watch closely is my protein intake. As mention above, my intake of carbs is very very very low, if at all.

    I endeavor to keep things very basic, I eat so I can live and not live to eat. It is not some special diet that I do, it works great for this 66 year old younger senior citizen.

    If I had not found Dr. Ron's Diet I would be dead or confined to a nursing home by now, for my health was going down hill.. I have been able to get off many meds and injections.

    What I do is within the guidelines of the Rosedale Diet, (Ken's style)

    Ken, thank you SO much. My inner knowing has called me into a similar pattern, now. I just finished a lunch of 1.5 oz protein and 1 T of coco oil - SLOWLY - and it filled me. I'm only 5'3" now, and I, like you, feel the body doesn't need much more. If I eat too much fat - even 2T at a sitting, I'm entirely wiped and useless. (I'm aware that my body probably hasn't shifted yet). But if I eat too much anything it is that way, now. Luckily, I have no option but to utilize small amounts and utilize them thoroughly. It actually feels GREAT - and a responsible use of our planetary substances.

    I don't know how I feel about the veggies, etc. I will have to live into this more to know. My sensing is that some live things are necessary, for the pure life force in them, if nothing else. But what I'm getting now is that I/we don't need anywhere near the amount of food I/we think we do or did. I'm learning to slow down, and let eating become, I suppose I would say, a sacred dance. I'm thinking one or two kale or lettuce leaves will do it. That's actually looking like a lot to me currently. If you had told me I would perceive this way a month ago, I would have giggled you off the planet. I am beyond grateful for the gift of this awareness. And I am looking forward to, for me, Rosedale version 2....powered by a lot more wisdom and restraint.

    Bless you, and thank you,

    Ellen, I see Dr. Ron laying a foundation that others will build on for many decades to come. Sorta like, Edison, Bell and a few others.

    Dr. Rosedale is nearing the publishing stage of new material, but, there is not a definite date as yet. You can Sign Up to be notified when the new work/material becomes available.

    We wish you the best on your journey ... Thank you for contacting us..
