Rosenberg’s Rules for Life and Health
Weigh yourself and determine how much weight you intend to lose. Mark the date and your weight on a sheet of paper. Do not set a target date, just a target weight.
Weigh yourself in the morning once each week and mark your sheet of paper with the date and weight.
Understand that discipline and life-style change are the path to weight loss, health and long life. All diets fail unless the dieter is willing to change life-style.
Walk one mile every day, preferably in the morning. If you can’t walk, then engage in some exercise for 20 minutes each day.
Engage in a modified fast once or twice each week. A modified fast means you eat no breakfast, no lunch, and no snacks on the day of the modified fast.
Drink lots of water each day, all day, particularly on days of the modified fast.
Never, under any circumstances, eat any food from a Fast Food Restaurant.
On days you are not on the modified fast, cut in half the amounts of food you would normally eat.
Snacks should be either tree nuts or fresh fruit.
Never eat dessert or anything with sugar.
Eliminate, as much as possible, salt from your diet. If you must have that “salt” flavor, use a salt substitute.
Eat ocean fish at least once each week.
“WOF” is best: whole grain, organic, and fresh products are always best.
Take a “cocktail” each day of one-half an aspirin, a multi-vitamin, a vitamin E capsule, and a fish oil capsule.
When you have achieved your desired weight goal, continue Rules Three through Fourteen for the rest of your life.
