Leptin Reset, The quilt query

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hi, I am excited in trying the quilt's leptin reset rx. My single and only qualm is the absence of aerobic activity during the reset. What is one to do if their lively hood requires 3-4 days a week of intense aerobic training? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, L from AUS

This step is critical. If you exercise and you are leptin resistant then the oprah leptin blog is for you to read.

"The reason is because when your LR severe cardio exercise can hurt you", "Also when your LR you are not able ot make your hormones optimally so it makes zero sense to push cardio which raises your cortisol even higher making you more likely to be LR and adrenally fatigues. Fix Leptin first and then add in the exercise" - quote from Dr Kruse's site, seems the answer to my question is the effect of aerobics on cortisol etc. I have been IF;ing with my crossfit/training but starting to think that at this stage its possibly doing me more harm then good

A nice long walk in the beautiful outdoors is not "cardio." Most of us don't walk anywhere near enough, so that's a place to start. The variability of natural terrain vs. treadmills and tracks is, I believe, easier on our joints and good for our muscles even in the absence of intense exercise. And LR reset is for a very limited period.

I would still try it. Even a portion of it is better than none. Take most of your carbs after your workout may help.

I have a follow-on question to the Leptin Reset:

Let's say you do the reset and become LS. Now, calories don't matter...you are a rockstar! You started the reset 75lbs overweight, but now you can eat and eat and the weight keeps falling off because your body wants to be lean. A year later, you are 75lbs lighter. You fall prey to slick marketing and eat a pizza. Tastes so good, you eat another. Then some ice cream and a few liters of Coke. Next thing you know, you are 25lbs overweight and your jeans are too tight.

My questions: How long is Leptin Sensitivity good for? What will ruin it? A slice of pizza or 3 slices a night for 6 months? What's the best way to ensure you don't lose it?

What would you do if you had a physical injury or some other medical issue that kept you from doing it??
