Traditional Weight Loss compared to Rosedale Diet

Dr. Rosdale, hello1

I am a 61 year old female who followed a 'traditional' weight loss program administered by a dietician. Over a period of one year, I lost close to 80lbs, from 215 down to about 138lbs. It included dairy (mainly 2% milk) and bread (about 2 average slices a day). However at 5'0" 138lbs is still considered a high BMI. I would guess that my idea weight is somewhere around 110-115lbs. I am however, unable to lose any more weight on the dietician's program, even though I walk daily between 7,000-10,000 steps.

  • My question is: Can your program really assist in further weight loss? I really need to lose more.

Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

    The Rosedale Diet can help you, if you follow his recommendations. Many try to mix it with other diets and end up frustrated by doing so.

    • I can assist you up to a point but it will be up to your commitment.

    Are you willing to start fresh and give up some or all of what you have been doing. The Rosedale Diet is more than about losing weight, it is about becoming healthier and staying that way. It is about a permanent lifestyle change.

    It consists of: low to no non-fiber carbs, moderate protein (40g to 70g) depending on height, your height of 5 feet (40g to45g daily total is good) good fat like olive or coconut oil on fiber veg salad works well.

    • How much protein do you eat per meal and how many daily meals?

    • What does your diet consist of other than the milk and bread (not good)?

    The Rosedale Diet is easy and can be tweaked and has worked great for me and continues to do so.

    Dr. Rosedale does not accept patients nor consults at this time, he has closed his private practice and is traveling globally conducting seminars and teaching his science.

    • Exercise is great but a proper diet is the key.

    Hi Ken,

    Thanks for the timely reply. Re: what I wrote about my experience, I can say that the program was about 1500 kcal/daily with pretty much properly proportioned proteins, fats and carbs that promoted a steady and fairly comfortable weight loss.

    The problem is that weight loss has totally stalled, and I am experiencing some inflammatory conditions consequent to the program: arthritis and possible scleroderma. Additionally, as noted in my first query, I could still stand to lose between 20-25lbs more. I might add that all my blood work is excellent, done recently. Blood pressure tends to be on the low side-110/60, A1C is 54mg., triglycerides are in the 40's consistently.

    I am simply looking for a higher degree of health, that is sustainable and could perhaps address the developing health conditions I've mentioned.

    Many thanks!

    It would help if I understood what you mean by (properly proportioned proteins, fats and carbs). I need to know in grams what each are.

    • Too much protein and non-fiber carbs and too little good fats can be problematic.

    • Put a name to your protein, carbs and fats.

    Again, are you willing to start fresh and give up some or all of what you have been doing?
