Paleo2.0 brought this up as a comment in another question. Is everything that Dr. Kruse has to say about leptin wrong? What has Dr. Kruse said that is correct? Citations would be helpful for many reading here.
---------THIRD PARTY EDIT------------ The below hack is old stuff. It's interesting background from the spring of 2011, but you might want to read these more current posts: What???s the deal with PaleoHacks, Dr. Kruse and the FBI? Richard's blog... (more)
Blanket statements and poor biochemistry aside, I cannot stand his poor grammar and lack of punctuation on this site. Most of the time his answers look like they were written by a 3rd grader. I'm expecting to be down voted by his all too faithful... (more)
So Ive read the information on the blog, tried to get through a good chunk of te MdA pages and gone through here but hasn't quite food the answers to my questions. As a quick background I started the RX 1.5 weeks ago- I used the fact that I have... (more)
My (paleo) nutritionist suggested I start taking aloe juice to help with constipation... Im on the leptin reset protocol right now. Not sure if its a no go, or a go.. or a go period.. Anyone use it?
Interesting new Time magazine article by same title as this post, addressing the "symphony of hormonal changes sends the body relentless signals to slow metabolism and increase the urge to eat, for at least a year after weight loss." Given that... (more)
I don't quite understand what the leptin reset protocol is, who should be doing it and what should be done? Can anyone give a brief overview in laymans terms? I've seen the site but still don't get it!
Has anyone else seen results with the Triphase Free Electron Diet? It helped me reduce my electron density by 37% and i am very happy with this. Now wondering if this can work well with Paleo? Can I also mix this with a Leptin Reset? I find this... (more)
You haven't accounted for the recent reports of neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light. If this proves to be true, your whole dietary paradigm is worthless and you will become obese.
I am interested to know what the cost/benefit difference of IF versus calorie cycling would be. Specifically comparing Leangains style lunch+dinner only where dinner is the largest meal VS eating breakfast/lunch/dinner. In the 3 meal situation I... (more)
The difference between 2 and 3 meals seems to be less important than staying strict to not eating during the 16 hour daily fasting window. You may want to play around with what time you start your 8 hour feeding window based on when you get the... (more)
Week three of Dr. Kruse's leptin reset and things have been going great, I can SEE the difference already and definitely feel it, better energy, etc. However, the last two days, I have been almost constantly hungry starting just a couple of... (more)
A bit of explanation is needed for this one... I started to get serious about losing weight back in September of 2009. Started running & cutting calories. I started out at 235 - 240 lbs (I'm a male who is 5'6", by the way). By May of 2010, by... (more)
Hello hackers, In the past (pre paleo) I lost about 25kg over a period of around 6 months. At my largest I was 125kg, at my lowest recently I have been 88kg but sit somewhere between 90 and 95 at most times. I have seen the best results while... (more)

Will he crush the numbers of "Sugar the bitter truth?" What say you hackers?
While doing research about leptin, there is a lot of information, studies and theories on how leptin interacts with the receptors in the hypothalamus to throw off the satiety meter and get the ball rolling on all types of nasty maladies. What... (more)
LB, Leptin was discovered in 1994 and Insulin back in the 1950s (I think). Without getting into the biochemistry of your question, I view it similar to the fixation with cholesterol. For 50 years now we have been developing, refining, attacking,... (more)
Shooting from the hip, looking at my myself, I don't think that my leptin sensitivity is out of whack (albeit it could probably be much better) -- I am pretty sure my cortisol levels are completely out of whack --- high stress from my day job,... (more)
How long does it take before you see weight loss? How long does it take before there are signs of becomeing leptin sensitive? Are you seeing results? Side effects?
With all the leptin-talk over the last few months, much of it courtesy of the vaunted Dr.K/Quiltweaver, I thought I???d see what the consensus was regarding this study and its analysis by Professor... (more)
We've all probably seen similar graphs and I have for a long time attributed most cases of obesity to prolonged high fructose intakes. What I never stumbled across until now was a proposed... (more)
If someone is insulin resistant and uses fasting to help rebuild sensitivity (let's say a 1-meal-a-day approach), would their insulin levels really quickly become sensitive again, or would it adapt to these long fasting periods (and remain a bit... (more)
While your body is 'adapting' to fasting its tissues are becoming more sensitive to insulin. I honestly do not know if there are any clinical studies that can correlate adaption to fasting and sensitivity to insulin, or even if that is possible. ... (more)
My question pertains to carb refeeds in order to increase leptin levels/sensitivity. I've read that when doing a carb refeed after being VLC, is it necessary to avoid fats during the refeed. In other words, high carb, low-fat refeed. Is the... (more)
A few of my friends are trying to reverse their leptin resistance following the Quilt's suggestions. I working with them to try to figure out how to get that much protein into one morning meal. They are finding it challenging. My preference is... (more)
I found a pea protein with no sugars or artificial sweeteners, by Now, which has 28g protein per serving, but I can't find any info on Omega6s. I'd like to use for my morning 50g of protein in correcting leptin resistance. Non-GMO Vegetable... (more)

Let's say an obese individual loses a bunch of weight. From what I know regarding Leptin, (which isn't much, I'm workin on it...) said individual should have lower levels of Leptin as a result of the weight loss. At what point, if at all, does... (more)
