When I saw my first Rosedale diet dinner - a very small serve of chicken, plus low carb vegetables, my first thought was ‘is that all?’. And thats exactly how I felt after I’d eaten it!

Gradually, over the week, I learned to add soup and/or salad to the meal, to bulk it up a little.

I didn’t have the dreaded ‘carb withdrawals’, because I was already a low carb lifestyler. If I hadn’t been on low carb already, I think I’d have weaned myself off the high carb foods over a couple of weeks first, to cut down on carb withdrawal symptoms.

I didn’t have caffeine withdrawal symptoms, because, in spite of the instructions in the book, I didn’t give up caffeine! I still had coffee, diet coke, diet pepsi.

I did have occasional cravings or hunger pangs, but I used a simple variation of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to deal with them - first time I’ve ever tried this, and it worked *really well*. I’ll explain the technique in a later post.

But the best thing about this diet is that, right from the first day I was losing weight - the first diet thats even started to work for me, for the first time in nearly ten years! I never bothered with ketostix - I could tell simply by the extra activity of my bladder! Yes, part of the weight loss is fluid - after all, there is quite a lot of water bound up in the cells of the human body.

And every day, the scales went down. - about 1/2 kilo (around 1 pound) per day - some days a little more, some days a little less.

Hey! I’m losing weight! I’m the incredible shrinking woman!

  • The Third Week on the Diet
  • The third week passed relatively uneventfully.  By that I mean no cravings - I've even started to feel reasonably full after a meal, instead of the 'is that all?' feeling. Gary even commented that he isn't missing our low carb treats.  (low carb muffins, low carb pancakes, etc - he used

  • The Second Week
  • The second week, and I'm on a roll!  Every night I get on the scales, and I'm a tad less than the night before.  Every morning I get on the scales, and I'm a tad less than the morning before. I'm not hungry, not even having chocolate cravings! Lost  another 3 1/2

  • Week Four - What’s New on the Diet
  • Hmm, week four - time to progress to level 2 - or is it?  The Rosedale diet book says that you can stay on level 1 indefinitely, in fact its recommended, but in week four, you can progress to level 2, if you must.So I've decided to progress to *some*
