Leptin Sensitivity

Here are some notes from a very long sales video I watched.

What controls your body’s fat. High levels signal your body to let go of fat.
Women have 2x leptin as men.
1. Women 3x less responsive to leptin. “leptin resistance” (1 unique problem)
2. When dieting, leptin can drop 2x as fast 2x as men… leptin drops significantly, slowing your metabolism.
After baby, leptin problems get harder. Body hardwired to fight a losing battle with leptin.

Women have 2x as much leptin as men. It’s just almost completely untapped.
You can reset the way your body uses leptin.

NOTE: The first page has a transcript, without the pictures of women and the testimonials, that covers all the information the video gives. It also offers almost the same bonuses.

So what to do?
I don’t want to buy the information. I want to know the information. So I started looking elsewhere. Here’s what I’ve found…

Despite what the video says, it does look like a diet and exercise are required. However, the diet is mostly a low carb diet and exercise is fairly simple. According to this site, how and when you eat is as important as what you eat.

Eat a high protein breakfast immediately upon rising.
Don’t snack.
Eat 3 meals a day initially, though can be dropped to 2 later.
Don’t work out at breakfast time. (before or after)
Limit your carbs to 25 grams a meal. (No potatoes or rice.)
Eat lots of fat with your carbs.
Work out after 5 pm, if you want to exercise.
Eat supper 4 to 5 hours before bedtime.
If you have trouble falling asleep, do 3-5 minutes of body weight exercises (pushups, air squats).
