Did you know that there’s ONE solitary hormone that pretty much controls EVERY other weight loss hormone in your body, and your ability to burn fat altogether?
In fact, when you have this ONE hormone on your side, fat loss truthfully couldn’t get easier.
When you don’t, however, losing even a single kilo can become virtually impossible.
The hormone? Leptin. And here’s the unfortunate news: Just about everyone is unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin each and every time they attempt to lose weight.
With that said, it’s not very hard at all to see why so many people outright struggle to shed their unwanted body fat, month after month, year after year.
Now I’m going to explain to you exactly why and how leptin is limiting YOUR fat loss…
First, in order to burn fat, your body depends on these two things:
1) High levels of leptin
2) highly-sensitive leptin “receptors”
Now for the bad news…
Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet and fat burning is dramatically reduced.
Because leptin’s main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body unfortunately views your stored body fat as a huge asset to survival.
After all, body fat provides a vast supply of stored energy and warmth, both highly-valued resources when food is in short supply.
You see, when you go on a diet, your body isn’t aware of your hopes for a slim, tight waistline or your desire to drop 20kgs in time for your high school reunion or summer beach season. In fact, the only thing it does know is that your energy intake is now below “normal”… and to your brain, that’s a big red flag.
The result: reduced leptin levels and dramatically decreased fat burning.
In fact, research has shown that leptin levels drop by as much as 50% after just 7 days of dieting… that puts you at only 50% of your fat-burning potential just one WEEK in to your fat loss plan, and it only gets worse with each passing day.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, with every kilo you DO struggle to lose, leptin levels fall even further, making it even more difficult for you to continue to lose fat.
Because, as mentioned, in the face of energy restriction, your body views stored body fat as an asset to survival. The more fat you lose, the more “danger” your body senses, and the harder it is to strip away that next kilo.
Hello fat loss plateaus!
Now, I hate to continue to be the bearer of bad news, but the scenario I just explained is actually only HALF the problem.
The other unfortunate reality is that the vast majority of people are ALSO suffering from a condition known as “leptin resistance” due to years of high body fat levels and a diet full of processed foods.
Leptin resistance simply means that even at high levels, leptin is no longer able to properly signal fat burning to your body, dramatically decreasing its fat loss effects. That’s a pretty disheartening truth for the fat loss enthusiast, but as I alluded earlier, there IS something you can do about it.
Let me ask you this:
What if I told you there was a drop-dead simple way to keep leptin levels high as you lose weight, while also increasing your body’s sensitivity to the hormone?
Is that something you might be interested in?
You see, if you could do that, you could essentially keep your body in a fat-burning state all the time… high leptin levels = high levels of fat burning… 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Can you just imagine how much MORE fat you’d burn if your body was no longer limiting your rate of fat loss on a daily basis?
