What makes people who eat exactly the same portions but differ in weight? It is the thing that burns fat in their bodies which is called Leptin. It is also one of the hormones responsible for how full we feel. With low levels of this hormone, you will burn fat less and your body will be more resistant to it. Here, you will learn how to strengthen and increase this hormone naturally.
1- Stay true to your diet. Thinking things like, “I’ve been dieting for a month now and I need a break for a week or so” can severely hurt your burning rate and increase your body’s ability to resist fat burning hormones.
2- Don’t include large quantities of refined carbs and sugar in your diet. A direct link was found between high insulin levels and resistance to Leptin. And it is a well-known fact that carbs and sugar are the number one contributor to any sudden increase in your insulin levels.
3- Avoid starving yourself in the name of dieting. I’ve heard that some people want to achieve a quick result, so they follow diets that limit their calorie intake to 1000 to 1300 calories which is the absolute definition of starvation. This way your body fights Leptin ferociously leading you to weight gain instead of weight loss.
4- Since most of the quantity of this hormone is produced while we sleep, it is very important to have enough sleep when dieting. Lack of sleep will make Leptin’s levels in your body low making you hungry at all times.
5- Divide your meals into smaller portions so that you could have them every 2 to 3 hours instead of every 5 or 6 hours. By this, you won’t feel severely hungry so often, and this makes your body less resistant to fat burning hormones.
