Dr. Rosedale,

I wanted to take the time to contact you concerning your diet. I started following your eating guidelines based on your book approximately 2 months ago. I found out about you from a friend who is a health care professional.

I bought a copy of your book off EBay. I read the book and thought it had to be to good to be true. Well as you have heard time and time again, I'm sure, it has completely changed my life.

I am a 58 yrs old 5'4" paramedic and a former Marine who had ballooned to 225lbs with a multitude of health issues. Including hypertension, TIAs, asthma, joint and back pain. I took a Crestor for elevated cholesterol, med for hypertension, allergy meds, 3 different inhalers for asthma, oral asthma meds as well.

I work full time but my weight and health was affecting my job. I was relying on FMLA to keep my job due to the multitude of health issues.

I was seeing my primary care physician, a pulmonologist, and a neurologist as well. I could not walk any distance at all without becoming short of breath. I had problems with snoring and sleep apnea as well. My primary care physician basically said my weight was killing me. My pulmonologist said the biggest contributing factor in my breathing issues was mechanical, my weight. I was told that if i did not change my life style and eating habits I would not live long. I caught every bug that went around I was constantly sick.

Enter your book. I started in mid November 2016. As of today I have dropped over 35lbs!! Most of my weight was consolidated in my belly and neck. I could not wear a tie due to my neck size which looked like I had no neck at all. I have dropped from wearing a 40" waist pants to a 34" waist pants. I can now wear a tie as well. I haven't been sick since I started this.

I have went from getting a few hours of broken sleep each night and waking up with a horrible dry mouth to sleeping through the night without waking up until my alarm goes off and NO dry mouth at all!!

I am off the Crestor, the blood pressure med (my b/p this morning was 106/62) and asthma inhalers other than albuterol prn. I have not used the albuterol in over a month.

My energy level has sky rocketed. No longer am I glued to the couch or chair at work. I am very active and energetic and I am now exercising again.

My goal is 165lbs. At the start that seemed impossible to me and totally unattainable. NOT NOW!!

I eat nothing but healthy foods. Very little carbs and sugar and healthy fats. I did discus this with my physician who was all for it.

For the first time in years I feel like I am healthy and have a positive out look on life. It is still hard to believe a person can eat like this and loose weight and become healthy again. I had resigned myself to being over weight and have a short life span. Sitting in front of a TV and eating myself to death was what I was doing. I had tried all the pills and fad diets and you know how that turns out.

After spending a small fortune on fads and my prescription meds, all it took was $5 for your book from EBay and 35lbs later here I am. I look at myself in the mirror and have to pinch myself to make sure its not a dream!!!!!

I am enjoying my life again!! All because of you and your book. This is now normal for me I can not ever imagine going back to the way it was.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    wow.. loved reading your journey Harold, makes my heart and soul get oh so happy and excited when we hear stories like yours. You took your life by the horns and took control. We know it is not easy, but you are living proof that it gets easier and it works.
    Dr. Ron reads all these messages, and I have seen first hand the smile on his face and hand on his heart each time he sees his life's working helping and healing others.

    Harold, would you mind at all if I made your message public? your email would always remain private, but that way others who are just starting can read and be inspired by you. I know that Ken's story has helped so many take that first step. However, I completely respect if you would prefer not to.

    As Ken said, please keep us posted!

    Health and laughter your way,

    Thank you so much for getting back with me. Yes you may use my story. I have already told everyone who will listen! I have given the book to my daughter and her husband and I am constantly giving information to people about this. Receiving the book from someone who has followed it and seeing with your own 2 eyes is very powerful.

    I am still amazed at how good I feel! Its almost like a dream and there are so many unexpected benefits. I was spending $100+ a week on fast food! I haven't had any fast food since I started this. It is truly life changing.

    I could go on and on about this but I know I'm preaching to the choir.

    Once again thank you very much

    Have an amazing day!
