Doreen, I am willing to volunteer to summarize the South Beach philosophy for the forum. It has helped me a lot initially, and while I am not an expert on all the other plans and thus can only compare to Atkins, I do know SBD philosophy and principles.

Are you still interested in a review like the other ones? Monika

Default New LC book

The LC than my husband and I are following is by Dr CV Clark.

A quote from the blurb on the back cover, " Dr Charles Clark is an international authority on glaucoma and diabetes. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and a Professor at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia".

After looking him up on the Internet, he seems to have a great many followers and success stories. He is currently a physician in Harley Street, London.

I have not read many other LC diet books, but have used carb-counters from some books as his list is not very comprehensive. His advice on the does and don'ts is very comprehensive however and easy to understand. One of the criticisms on his site from of the LC'ers was that there was not enough variety in the actual diet for vegetarians!

I have no idea if this is the information you require - pse get back to me if you need anything else.

4- Eat Proteins/Fats with Veggies.
5- Eat Carbos with Veggies and no fat.
6- Wait three hours between meals IF switching from a Proteins/Fats
meal to a Carbos meal, or vice versa.

you feel satisfied and comfortably full.

Default The Rosedale Diet

1. Plan's name: The Rosedale Diet

2. Date: (Original publication): 2004

3. Basic Philosophy/Strategy: The Rosedale Diet is a high fat (monounsaturated), moderate protein diet. Dr. Rosedale bases his plan on achieving leptin sensitivity. Leptin is a hormone that increases when you eat excessive carbs and saturated fat, and so by eating lower carbs and "good" fats, (monounsaturated like olive oil and avocado) your leptin levels will be reduced. Leptin sensitivity (Also goes hand in hand with insulin sensitivity) will regulate your hunger and increase fat burning ability. The Rosedale Diet is also an anti-aging diet.

4. By the numbers: Rosedale is divided into two levels. Level 1 must be followed closely for the the first 3 weeks, and you’re limited to the foods on the “A” list (below). The first 3 weeks, it's important to stick with the program closely so as to achieve leptin sensitivity, and to train your metabolism to burn fat instead of sugar. You can move on to Level 2 after the first 3 weeks which includes foods on the “B” list (below). However, some people with diabetes, metabolic disorders, or coronary artery disease may wish to stick with Level 1 and the foods on the “A” list indefinitely.

5. Method: ROSEDALE DIET—A QUICK OVERVIEW

a. Limit saturated fats---eat primarily chicken, fish, (preferably meats that have not been grain fed or processed with hormones and antibiotics) nuts, vegetables, and no-fat cheeses. (After the first 3 weeks, you can add lean cuts of the other meats, but limit them to 2-3 times per week, per the notation under the “B” list foods)

b. Eat the right amount of protein for you, usually 65-70 grams per day, depending on your lean body mass weight.

c. Avoid sugar and starch. You don't have to count carb grams, just don't eat non-fiber carbs.

d. Don't be afraid of fat, but eat GOOD FAT—i.e., monounsaturated fats like olive oil, nut oils, and avocados, etc.

e. Drink lots of water

f. Don't eat a large quantity at one time. (spread out your meals to 4-5 smaller meals if possible)

g. DON'T EAT FOR AT LEAST 3 HOURS BEFORE BED.

h. DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO GO HUNGRY. Eat good fats, protein if it doesn't cause you to exceed the daily limit, or vegetables--actually, you can eat the acceptable vegetables in unlimited amounts.

i. Exercise after the last meal of the day, if possible.

j. If you "blow it" and go off the program, try to do 15-20 minutes of exercise to burn off the excess glucose.

6. Typical menu:

B: Poached eggs on low carbBread
S: Raw Almonds
L: Chicken Salad
S: Avocado Spread on celery stalks
D: Dilled Salmon and Asparagus with tossed salad

B: Hard-boiled eggs and swiss chard
S: Pecans
L: Tuna Salad
S: Celery with almond butter
D: Baked Halibut and green beans

B: Chicken sausage with avocado
S: hummus and celery
L: chicken with broccoli
S: Ricotta and blueberries
D: LC chicken enchiladas

7. Emphasis on: Fat, Sugar, Protein or Exercise
FAT and PROTEIN: Rosedale is a high fat, (monounsaturated) low protein diet.
SUGAR: Sugar substitutes are allowed (but not encouraged) after the first 3 weeks.
EXERCISE: Dr. Rosedale recommends 15 to 20 minutes a day of some kind of resistance training. He doesn't recommend doing a lot of strenuous exercise, however, because "a high-intensity workout can rev up production of stress hormones and cause blood glucose levels to rise as a result of tearing down excess muscle mass to burn as fuel. This is particularly damaging to someone who is insulin resistant."


8. Unique Features: Particulars that differ from general low-carb diets—
a. Reduction of protein intake, which increases fat burning potential, reduces blood sugar, enhances insulin and leptin sensitivity, keeps your metabolism running efficiently, and reduces free radical damage.
b. LIMIT saturated fats (see number 5-a above)
c. Limited exercise—more emphasis on staying on plan
d. Eating meats that have not been grain fed, hormone or antibiotic fed, or processed such as bacon and ham.
e. Higher fat, (monounsaturated) lower protein.
f. The eggs you eat should be high in Omega-3 fatty acids from free-range, vegetarian fed chickens.
g. Egg yolks are vulnerable to oxidation when cooked at high temperatures, so should be cooked under water, (poached) soft boiled, or slightly hard boiled. If you want fried eggs or an omelette, you should cook the whites only.

9. About the authors:
Ron Rosedale, M.D., is an internationally renowned expert in nutritional and metabolic medicine and an anti-aging specialist. He is the founder of Rosedale Center in Denver, CO; Co-founder of the Colorado Center for Metabolic Medicine in Boulder, CO, and founder of the Carolina Center of Metabolic Medicine in Asheville, North Carolina.

As a keynote speaker, he has appeared before such prestigious groups as the eighth Congressional International Medical Conference on Molecular Medicine, the First European Conference on Longevity Medicine and Quality of Life, and many more. He has been a guest on numerous national radio and television news shows. He lives in Denver, CO

What about the recent TNT diet? It's low-carb (though not at low as Atkins induction), combined with resistance training.
