Product Features

Mastering Leptin is a weight loss book that claims that obesity can be blamed on the hormone leptin. Leptin is produced by fat cells, and it is said that it can be controlled by when a consumer eats as much as what they eat. It is said that leptin problems can be blamed for overeating, faulty metabolism, food cravings, obsession with food, and heart disease. Understanding how to control leptin is said to be critical for weight management, combating aging, and achieving optimum health. The five steps include: Never go to bed with a full stomach; Eat 3 meals a day and no snacks; Avoid large meals; Eat a high protein breakfast; and Reduce carbohydrate consumption. Mr. Richards claims that leptin problems slow the metabolism and enforce a starvation mode in the body. Since leptin problems cause high leptin in the body and low leptin in the brain, the consumer is said to be more susceptible to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Leptin is said to be the cause of major health problems including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, increase risk for cancer, and fibromyalgia. Mastering Leptin shows the consumer how to control the leptin in the body and increase overall health.
