What You Should Know
The Rosedale Diet is another low carbohydrate diet that restricts the total intake of carbohydrates and increases the intake of healthy fats in order to force the body into ketosis. Ketosis is the process of the body using fats as the main source of energy as opposed to the traditional carbohydrate burning. The Rosedale Diet tries to remove itself from the low carbohydrate diet tag by pushing the scientific evidence about the importance of Leptin control for hunger control.
High fat, controlled carbohydrates and controlled proteins in the diet.
The Rosedale Diet is available in book form for readers who want to follow the diet plan. There is no official website pertaining to the Rosedale Diet, but the diet is covered all over the Internet giving the dieter a glimpse of the diet specifics before buying the book.
Proteins, carbohydrates and fats are controlled on the Rosedale Diet. The amount of protein eaten per person equates to one gram per two pounds of lean body mass. This is about 50 to 75 grams of protein per person, every day. The food choices are controlled with lists available in the Rosedale Diet book. The foods allowed include those rich in fats and proteins. The foods to be avoided include starchy foods and some fruits including bananas, cantaloupe, dried fruits, grapes, honeydew, orange, pineapple, watermelon and various starchy vegetables.
In addition to the dietary restrictions on the Rosedale Diet, there is a huge section of the book dedicated to using supplements to lose weight. This section would normally make us happy, but the fact that the doctor who created the Rosedale Diet book also owns a supplement company only causes us to throw up a red flag. Without buying the book, there is very little specific information on which supplements the doctor recommends.
- The Rosedale Diet supports supplementation for weight loss.
- Lower carbohydrate diets tend to evoke weight loss.
- There are no testimonials found online supporting the Rosedale Diet.
- There is no official website for the doctor, the book or the Rosedale Diet plan.
- Low carbohydrate diets are traditionally hard to follow for long periods of time.
If you have read one low carbohydrate diet plan, you have read them all. The Rosedale Diet tries to use scientific research on the effect of Leptin and Leptin control on weight loss to set itself apart from other lower carbohydrate diets. The Rosedale Diet is successful in that regard, but the fine print remains a push for eating higher fats and lower carbohydrates to lose weight.
While we tend to support using supplements to aid in weight loss achievements, this plan requires the use of a laundry list of supplements all offered by the Rosedale supplement line.
