Dear Martin and Jayne,
Welcome! I am actually a Brit as well and have been working with
Dr. Rosedale for about 5 years, all over the world. I have to say
the hardest time we have is with the Brits! They seem very parcial
to their drugs. The UK diabetes society participants are FIECE to
make sure they keep taking their drugs, verses just changing their
diet and getting off the drugs. Dr. Ron and I were very active
there giving lots of free advice with the UK diabetes organization
as Dr. Ron for 20 years has reversed type II with just diet and
supplements, they even studied and published a paper about his
patients. I was so shocked they actually called us charlatans for
even suggesting such a terrible idea as changing their diet. The
proof is in the pudding (pardon the pun), if they just ate a
Rosedale breakfast and measured the blood sugar they would see it
works, and taking their medications to lower their blood sugar
would not be needed. I have never met a country as resistant as my
own in accepting that the health care system is not all it is cut
out to be. Emergency care is outstanding but 'standard of care' is
all about profit not health care.
I would strongly advise you listen and read some of the articles
on our blog page, www.drrosedale.com/blog about
cholesterol, cholesterol is not the villan at all.
It works, I have seen it change lives in so many people and in
so many countries. Try it, do it 1005 for just 3 weeks and you will
see it first hand for your self. I have been eating this way for 5
years and would never give it up. Ken, (thank Ken for your support)
is doing wonderful, but he results are just like so many
Hi Fiona, thanks for the reply, yes I am not surprised by your
findings at all, we are truly under the spell of our G.P's
especially the die hard older generation G.P's particularly our
own, very finger wagging concerning my refusal to touch statins and
told me quite matter of factly I was going to have an heart attack
if I didn't! In fact I no longer have regular blood tests anymore
because of my refusal to have them. Mind you though there are a few
younger more open minded doc's here but they are few and far
between! But not at our practice.
My wife has asked me to ask a question, she is bipolar and is
currently on Lithium and Carbamazepine, what effect if any would
this diet have on her condition or medication? I would advise her
to speak to our G.P but one already knows the answer.
Hi Ken, seems my post to your reply went awol? However I did say
how impressed I was with your achievement on the diet it is quite
Thanks for the well wishes and sorry I didn't give thanks sooner
after my last post.
I am drug free since 16-January 2010, I am no more a NIDDM, and heart disease. The diabetes neuropathy took 9 months to clear. I used to be 63 kilo +/- age 62, 5' 3". Now I maintained it around 48 kilo gross. My fat is no more than 5 percent.
Yes, the The Rosedale Diet is truly what you need. Be discipline, don't cheat for the first 3 - 4 weeks and you will see the results fast.
Hi Alan, thanks for the encouragement, another impressive achievement! I am glad you have found health with Dr Ron's diet.
I let a professor friend of mine review Dr Ron,s book, she is a professor in physiotherapy and dietetics "Curriculum evaluation and quality management in higher education
Impact of study at masters level
She wasn't too impressed I have to say with Dr Ron's 2004 print of his book and cited a number of flaws with his hypotheses and quotations in reference to animal studies which since have been refuted, and she was quite horrified at some of his advise! And the fact that the research is ten years out of date, i hope that Dr Ron's book he is working on has more research to back his theories up? However with results like the ones posted above I have reservations on my professor friends open mindedness? Even though I respect her greatly.
Hi Martin & Jayne,
Lots of phDs, CONventional doctors knows nothing about nutritions. Forget about them. Follow Dr. Rosedale Diet. It's Mother Nature diet. Also, remember Hippocrates..."Let Food Be Thy Medicine"...as long as "First Do No Harm". That's what Dr Ron & his dedicated teams are doing...going back to Mother Nature's food...and from the peer reviewed researches to "trick" Mother Nature to eat a diet that will sustains our body in the Maintenance & Repair mode...not in the reproduction mode. It doesn't matter if it's an "old Book". We shouldn't mess around with Mother Nature.
Don't ever, ever cheat in the first 3 - 4 weeks. Stick to Ron's diet. Use lots of good & healthy fats (coconut, palm oils & those in the book) ; eggs, fish & chicken; fiber carbs; nuts & 99% cocoa chocolate; organic cocoa & coffee (once a day & then I burnt it off by doing a brisk walk), lime water (pH neutraliser) & spring water; very low carb crisp bread like WASA Fibre; stevia powder for flavour, avocados, good condiments, vinegar, good salt/sauce, etc. Don't forget the supplements & daily exercises after meals and do the pre & post tests to see the results. You will be amazed.
I used to tell my friends to give Ron's diet a try. If it works (which is amazing!) please continue MINUS the LEGAL DRUGS. If it doesn't work, go back to your symptomatic treatment$$$ & side effect$$$$$ with the drug$$$$$$$$. You now have an Alternative Integrative Medicine vs Drugs. Your choice?
A popular quote from Dr. Joseph Mercola: Failing to Plan? You're Planning to Fail.
I wish you and your dear Jayne all the very success.
With all my metta (Loving Kindness & Selfless Love),
B'Well, B'Healthy, B'Happy......Alan
I hear ya Alan, conventional thinking won't put me off; I did the Atkins diet against her better advice and lost 2 stones in weight after six weeks and never felt better, only problem I am having is sourcing the foods in the good doctor's book, a lot of which you can't get here in blighty! What we need is a British version of his book! :) Thanks for the encouragement, although I would like to make it clear however that I am not on any meds nor are we suffering from diabetes, I am concerned at the route my current/old diet is taking us with my GP advising that dreaded drug route and bad diet advice. We have been on Dr Ron's diet in a semi fashion (lots of fish, green veg and krill oil supplement) and I have already lost half a stone! Wishing you continued health Alan, and thanks.
I heard on the radio that the National Institute for Clinical Excellence or N.I.C.E here in the U.K are advising people who are on drugs for heart disease or statins can cut "down" on eating oily fish!!! Is this insanity from our so called health professionals? They say that because of these drugs effectiveness now they don't need to eat nearly as much fish, I can't believe this country sometimes.

That mindset is shown here in my area - the PUSH for meds is
My doc says that he is amazed at how my health has improved over
this past year, yet even though the 6 daily meds he had me on for
my BP was NOT accomplishing anything, he still
wanted me to take 5mg of one of those still just in
case my BP goes up - I tell ya, one is treated as though
they're an idiot. I must admit that I am naive in many areas BUT I
am not totally brain dead.
I am keenly aware that there are Perks to be had for
writing scripts and for the clinic admins as well.
Patient health is secondary for so many
Nice to hear from you.
Yep I am afraid it is a fact that those with less knowledge about these things are going to suffer in the end. But you know the experts are firmly entrenched in the belief that drugs are the answer even when the evidence is before them like yourself! I'm afraid the "experts" will always have one eyebrow raised whilst looking down their noses at us poor uneducated individuals.
Lost a stone in weight now, I'm down to 13 from 14 and the wife has lost half a stone to 8! Another one to go and thats my weight sorted.
It's me from Malaysia and it's now slightly less than 5 1/2 years that I have followed Dr. R.Rosedale Diet. I go to India for my annual CBC esp. for leptin and insulin. I am healthy and passionate about Dr's diet. I'm now a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Took NTP with NTA. I am setting up my in-house operation to counsel clients specializing in weight management; diabetes; hi-blood pressure & CVD all in accordance to Dr. Ron's diet.
Thank you Doc, Fiona for your guidances.
