leptin reset and workout

Hi everyone!

I really want to try the Leptin Reset by Dr. Kruse, but I really need to workout and the only time I can do it is in the morning. I have a 8 month old baby and he sleeps from 10am to 12pm and it's the only time I can workout. Will it ruin completely my efforts?

I am a rather fit person (I have been working out for 8 years consistently) and I want to lose 10 pounds.

So, what are your thoughts if someone is leptin resistant, should they work out after their last meal? If so how soon after eating can they lift?

if you own a food scale, try tracking what your calories. i had to stop doing the reset after a week because despite fighting to get 50g of protein down initially, it became easy and i actually began feeling bingey mid morning. for the record i am a binge eater by nature.

Sage, I've been eating the way he says for the last 4 days and I already feel the difference. 50g protein for breakfast makes me feel so full that snacks are out of the question! I also eat a very small lunch and a rather small dinner. I am already 3lbs down!

Yes, he does. On his site I read ideally 5pm or later.

ah. I'm a big fan of that eating protocol, I follow something very similar even though I'm at a good weight.

Because you're within 10lbs of your goal weight. Probably some leptin issues but nothing major. I don't think most people confirm this via blood tests, but rather visual indications and symptoms of hunger, etc. RT3 is a sign of stress but I'm not sure it correlates directly to leptin sensitivity.

Jeff, How do you conclude this with the information provided? This whole leptin resistance thing is confusing. I have a friend who works out like a fiend and is in fact leptin resist. as confirmed by her MD endocrinoloigst so... you can have this issue if you work out or not. The testing of it is unclear. Reverse T3 is important to look at. What about Leptin. Are people having it checked by bloodwork (my friend did and it was very high)

chrisavgi, did paleolithic man have a timepiece that I didn't know about so as to exercise at some specific time? 10 to 12 in the morning sounds like a great time to exercise to me.

If you are fit and work out a bunch chances are you are not leptin insensitive. Do a salivary test just to check but otherwise do something else more productive.

you are likely not leptin insensitive. i tried it out about a year ago and noticed a difference in weight distribution. that might have been due to the increase in my protein/fat vs carbs consumption.

I agree that you're probably not leptin resistant. If you follow that plan, you will probably notice a decreased need for snacking and an increased ability to go longer and longer between meals. Both good things!
