I fully intended to stick strictly to my Rosedale diet over Christmas.  But as Christmas came closer, Gary's face grew longer, as he thought of all the food treats he was missing, so we compromised:  I went on my version of Rosedale maintenance for a couple of weeks or so over my holiday break.

My typical diet day looks like this:

  • 7.30 am 20 ml fish oil (doctors orders) washed down with black coffee
  • 12.30 100g salmon plus large green salad
  • 5.30 snack - more salad
  • 7.30 100g grilled meat plus stirfried low carb veges 

Notice there's *nothing* sweet on that menu, even though the Rosedale diet allows one piece of fruit a day, not to mention low-fat ricotta cheese, eggs, nuts, and small amounts of splenda - ingredients for a number of desserts.  I don't eat the sweet stuff because it tends to stall my weight loss.

But for Christmas, I ate anything allowed on the diet, BUT as much as and as often as I fancied. That meant ricotta pancakes for breakfast, with lowcarb maple syrup, little snacks of cheese and sausage and such like during the day.  Lots of turkey, with cranberry jelly.  Strawberries Romanoff and other delightful fruit desserts.

I didn't weigh myself.  I was scared to get on the scales in case I'd gained weight.  But when I went back to work, and back on to the diet, I weighed exactly the same as at the beginning of the holiday break.

First Christmas I can remember when I didn't gain any weight!

  • Sudden Weight Gains and Fluid Retention
  • Now that I'm weighing myself every day, first thing in the morning and last thing at night, I'm noticing that I'm quite prone to sudden weight gains of up to two kilos (4 1/2 pounds).  Fortunately, I'm using 'body fat' scales.  They should really be called 'hydration scales' because the

  • Those two kilos gone again - fluid?
  • Well the two kilos that turned up overnight, slowly disappeared over two or three days.  I suspect the sudden weight gain was purely fluid retention from the salty pancetta.Hmm, could this be one of the reasons why bacon and ham are banned on the Rosedale diet?I have to admit, that given

  • Cutting salt and hidden sodium
  • I didn't realize quite how long it had been - I'd never intended to make this one more abandoned blog.Back to the sudden, overnight 2 kilo gain.I discussed it with my doctor, and he suggested I cut out salty foods.  - a bit difficult, because I rarely eat salty foods,
