Dear Dr Rosedale,
I have listened to a bunch of your talks on high fat diets and
they all make a lot of sense. However, I have a few questions
I am an 18 year old with a passion for sports such as rugby, in
which one has to be big and strong. Would it be sensible then for
me to take up such a diet considering I'm still growing (growth
plates very open) and strength training is one of my biggest
passions? I have to note that my father has type 2 diabetes.
If such a diet does makes sense for me, to build any meaningful
strength I need to be eating at the least, above 3500 calories. If
I were to eat 80g of protein at 80kg (instead of the advised 200g
for athletes) and minimal carbs, I would have to eat about 380g of
fat a day to meet ends. Is this healthy? And if so, how is one
supposed to do this considering most high fat foods are also high
protein (e.g. Fish, avocado, nuts) ?

While you would need to make your own personal adjustments - you
can meet your fat/caloric needs through, MCT Oil, Coconut Oil,
Once you have become an actual fat burner instead of a carb
burner things will be better, takes about 3 to 5 weeks for the body
to make a transition from a carb burner to a fat burner.
Space your protein out, don't want to use too much at any one
meal. You mention above (80g of protein) just as a suggestion would
be no more than 20g per meal.
There may be other athletes that use Dr. Rosedale's way of
eating that would have some suggestions.
