Finally—the ultimate diet for fast, safe weight loss, lifelong health, and longer life, based on more than twenty years of research and the latest findings on appetite and weight. Metabolic specialist Ron Rosedale, M.D., has designed the Rosedale Diet to regulate the powerful hormone leptin, which controls appetite and weight loss by telling the brain when to eat, how much to eat—and when to stop. New research shows that leptin may be one of the body's most important hunger control mechanisms. Control leptin, and you control your weight.

Most people's leptin levels are out of control, causing them to overeat and to store fat rather than burn it. The only way to flip the "hunger switch" back to normal is through a diet high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, saturated fat, and trans-fatty acids often found in processed food—plus just 15 minutes of daily exercise.

Dr. Rosedale's 21-day diet plan is simple: Just select from the many foods on his "A" list, including "healthy-fat" foods such as avocados, nuts, olives, lobster, crab, shrimp, goat cheese, Cornish game hen, venison, and more. Then gradually add foods from the "B" list, such as steak, lamb chops, fruits, beans, and so on. A 28-day menu plan and more than 100 recipes, such as Dilled Salmon and Fresh Asparagus, Gingery Chicken Soup, Lasagna, Black Bean Wrap, Raspberry Mousse Cake, and French Silk Pie, make eating the Rosedale way deliciously easy.

Weight loss is just the beginning. The Rosedale Diet will make you feel satisfied, reduce cravings, and put you in control of your "sweet tooth." It can even help eliminate or reduce heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and other conditions associated with "natural" aging, as many of Dr. Rosedale's patients can attest. You'll find inspiring stories from them—and the power to control your weight and improve your health—in this groundbreaking book.




















normal. They even look older at an early age. From that realization, it dawned on me that the metabolic disorder of diabetes is a disease of rapid aging, and what we consider to be the “normal” diseases of aging are in reality due to an underlying disease of metabolic dysfunction. I have come to believe that leptin resistance is at least related to, if not at the foundation of the majority of disorders related to aging, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, arthritis, and

in homocysteine, a toxic by-product of protein metabolism, have a significantly increased risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and other serious conditions. Fortunately, an extremely effective means of lowering homocysteine is increasing your intake of folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6. The first two are key players in methylation, the process by which homocysteine is detoxified and cleared from the blood. Vitamin B6 plays an accessory role by converting homocysteine into

or as effectively; in fact, they often raised leptin levels! (Shockingly, most diabetics are still being treated with the high carbohydrate–low fat diet.) I offer the only alternative that works, and works fabulously well and works the best: the Rosedale Diet. “Listening” to Leptin When leptin was first discovered in 1995, it was dubbed the “holy grail of weight loss,” and there were high hopes among the scientific community that the cure for obesity had finally been found.
