Product Description

Product Description

The Leptin Diet explains how to unleash the power of hormones to resolve fatigue, food cravings, thyroid problems, and body weight issues. Mastering the fat hormone leptin is the single most important factor in preventing obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. The Leptin Diet contains five simple lifestyle guidelines to get the hormone leptin into balance for permanent weight loss, increased energy, and optimum health.

What is Leptin? Fat cells produce the powerful hormone leptin, a primary force instructing metabolism, weight loss, and hormone balance. Leptin communicates directly to your brain, telling the brain how much fat is in storage. It controls appetite, energy, and metabolic rate. Leptin problems are the primary reason for food cravings, overeating, faulty metabolism, the obsession with food, and heart disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - a diet book that actually works! 10 Aug 2013
By Rosmyk
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have yo yo dieted for 45 years and had got to the point where I was permanently on a diet, just so as to not put weight on!,... It appears that I am not alone!... it seemed like I would never be able to lose any more weight, no matter how hard I tried! This book changed all that! It is an easy to read scientific explanation as to how so many of us have messed up our delicate hormonal balance with years of yo yo dieting. Every other diet out there will tell you to have a healthy, in between meal snack, to keep your sugar levels balanced - this is the worst possible advice, ever! Basically, one should only 3 meals a day, with enough protein to keep you going between meals. It is vital to leave 5 to 6 hours between meals and 11 - 12 hours at night (eating dinner at least 3 hours before bedtime). This rebalances the hormone, leptin, which kicks the body into fat burning mode! I did not have a vast amount of weight to lose but in the first 6 weeks of this diet I lost 6 kilos! I feel better than I have done in decades and the BIG BONUS is that I have more than halved my cholesterol levels, which were extremely high, WITHOUT TAKING STATINS! My doctor can't believe his eyes!!! This is the best diet book - EVER!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good weight loss guide 16 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Leptin Diet provides a very clear and easy to understand explanation of how we put on excess weight and, even more important, how to rid yourself of unhealthy fat without putting it back on again. Clear advice about what and when to eat it, starting with protein and low GI carbs at breakfast. Special emphasis on how to get rid of dangerous fat from the belly area. This is not a fad diet, and I would thoroughly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seems like a great idea!! 5 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book cover to cover and it seemed like a great new eating plan rather than a diet as such and I decided to give this a go. As soon as I looked on the recommended website for some recipe ideas and how many calories to eat at one meal I discovered that it IS a diet with supplements that cost a fortune to buy and use along with the eating plan. What a waste of time. I have tried these shakes etc before and when you stop the supplements the weight goes back on... I think this is a con and if anyone is thinking of buying this book please first look at [...] and this will save you buying the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally scandalous 23 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read why you should never eat low fat food, and the dangers of transfats. Statins do we need them? Probably not although the Government in the interests of big business has recently considered giving us all statins. Again perhaps politicians could read the book and set up a proper people led body to recomend and comment on some of the misinformation we have endured about the proper foods to eat for good health instead of listening to people who want to sell us stuff

4.0 out of 5 stars Knowledge is power 29 Sep 2010
Great service from the supplier. This book is well worth a read by anyone wanting to know more about how your body operates. However I don't like all the add on sales by the guy who's written the book.

Popular Highlights

 (What's this?)
A healthy person who has not eaten for four to five hours prior to bed will burn sixty percent fatty acids and forty percent sugar the last three to four hours of sleep, a prime fat-burning time. If a person eats before bed it shuts off this prime fat-burning time during sleep. &quote;
Highlighted by 27 Kindle users
A person needs to be in normal-leptin mode for a good six months before the new set point is truly in place. &quote;
Highlighted by 26 Kindle users
Burning fat during exercise is more likely to occur when you haven’t eaten for a while. Thus, an ideal time to exercise is before breakfast or in the afternoon before dinner, assuming you have the energy to exercise at these times without needing to eat. &quote;
