The Leptin Factor

Learn How to Manage Your Eating,
Your Energy Levels & Your Metabolism

If you struggle to maintain your energy levels, control weight, and manage blood sugar levels, you may be interested in learning how to work with leptin, a primary hormone affecting the way your body communicates with your brain about available energy and fat storage.

Byron J. Richards has written a fascinating book called Mastering Leptin, which discusses the impact of leptin on the regulation of energy levels, weight, hormonal function, and disease.

In addition to loads of great information, the book also outlines a simple, 5-rule eating plan to help regulate leptin levels in the body and improve your health.

What Is It?

Leptin is a powerful hormone that was not discovered until 1994. Since then, scientists have learned that leptin plays a primary role in the regulation of all other hormones in the body, and that it has a significant impact on energy level, weight, hormonal function, and disease.

Managing leptin can help with a host of health-related issues, from regulating weight and insulin levels, to increasing energy levels, to regulating body temperature and heart rate.

Benefits of The Leptin Diet

Once you begin practicing the simple 5-rule eating plan, you are likely to notice many of the following benefits:

  • Reduce fatigue and increase energy levels
  • Assist with weight loss
  • Control food cravings & snacking
  • Regulate thyroid and other hormone functioning
  • Decrease risk of cancer and other diseases
  • And more!*

The Leptin Plan At-A-Glance

- from Mastering Leptin by Byron J. Richards

What I really like about the food plan is that although it is called a “diet” – it corresponds more to common sense eating to me! Here are the highlights (quoted from the book):

  1. “Never eat after dinner.”
  2. “Allow 5-6 hours between meals. Eat 3 meals a day. Do not snack.”
  3. “Do not eat large meals. If overweight, try to finish a meal slightly less than full. The full signal will usually catch up in 10-20 minutes. Eating slowly is important.”
  4. “Eat a breakfast containing protein.”
  5. “Reduce the amount of carbohydrates eaten.”
