The link between Leptin and weight gain.
Leptin is a hormone that communicates with the brain that we’ve eaten enough and causes us to feel “full”. It also helps the body to utilize fat as an energy source.
When leptin is working properly in the body it helps to control how much is consumed at meals, which facilitates proper weight management and blood sugar regulation. Often we find ourselves consuming simple carbohydrates and other highly processed foods that suppress leptin’s ability to decrease our appetite and this is when the trouble begins.
As leptin resistance increases so does insulin resistance. Blood sugar levels spike as over consumption becomes commonplace, causing increased insulin production which is a perfect setup for diabetes.
In addition to simple carbs and over consumption, chronic stress and sedentary lifestyles also increase resistance to leptin.
