Ron Rosedale is a medical doctor specialised in nutritional and metabolic medicine working in Colorado. He has treated thousands of diabetic and heart disease patients so successfully that the overwhelming majority have completely recovered from these conditions that simply express a metabolic disfunction related to insulin, but usually regarded as chronic and incurable diseases.

Rosedale has written many articles, and has given many presentations, all of which can be found on the web (http://drrosedale.com/rosedale_writing). In just a few words his dietary recommendations that he has applied with remarkable success to thousands of his patients suffering either from diabetes-related or cardiovascular problems through his medical practice, are based on his study and understanding of Insulin and its metabolic effects. They are simple: no sugars or starchy carbs, lots of fibrous vegetables, lots of fat from nuts, avocados, and olive and coconut oil, and a relatively small amount of protein. He calls it a low carb, high fat, moderate protein diet. In practice, his diet basically consists of eating lots of nuts, green salads and green vegetables, and small amounts of fish and meat.

Although he basically only discusses, and therefore maybe only considers macronutrients: carbs, fat, and protein, and there is so much more than this to consider, it is indeed the most basic, and thus the most important to start with.
