What is the best way to repair damaged Leptin Receptors while on a mainly Paleo Lifestyle?

I understand that since I have done HCG in the past, my Leptin Receptors and or Hypothalamus might be damaged. I have been doing the Paleo Lifestyle for 8 weeks now, and would like to know if there is a way... as in foods to eat or gasp supplements that might help with repair of the Receptors... or is it just a waiting game?

that is a case by case basis so, unfortunately, i can't tell you how long it will take. personally, i was born with a shot metabolism- leptin resistant seems to be the term du jour- and i became leptin sensitive within 4-6 months. i knew i was leptin sensitive- even though i hadn't heard that term at that point- because i had total control of hunger, tolerated starches for the first time in my life, my satiety mechanisms were operating to the point of where i wasn't overeating. pay attention to factors like that, particularly frequency of meals needed and amount needed for satiation.

How long has that taken for most folks who eat Paleo to heal their bodies? I'm certainly into eating Paleo for as long as it takes! And how would I know, just eating strict and clean very low carb Paleo, when my Leptin Resistance is gone? (I already eat 25-30 carbs per day on a regular basis)

I'm in the same boat, but I'm sure the damage occurred before the HCG (dirty word!) I'd like to know is how best to do this while keeping my thyroid optimum. I read that I should have min. 30 carbs for optimum T3. Sure don't want to feel like I did 2 yrs ago when I got the hypothyroid diagnosis, swelling, fatigue, brain fog & muscle aches. Also, will adhering to strict Paleo cure fatty liver disease, which was also diagnosed with the hypothyroid? FWIW, the Paleo diet is the complete opposite of what my doc told me to do... but I'd already tried it her way and wasn't getting any better.

Eat clean paleo with no cheating. Be cognizant of keeping your pufas low and balanced. Keep fructos intake to a bare minimum. That will take care of the oxidation and glycation. You also may want to consider low carb initially.
