In this episode, Donna Reish, blogger, author of over 100 English curriculum books for students in grades K through 12th, and Intermittent Fasting teacher, teaches on the hormone leptin. Donna begins describing what leptin is and how we have become resistant to it, “leptin resistant.” She then teaches about how leptin signals are like trying to hear someone with headphones on—and how much we truly miss of the signaling when our brains do not get the messages. She encourages overweight people that so many of the things that are bodies do not do for us now are not our faults—and how we can easily fix many of these things with knowledge and a few tweaks (like sleep, water, protein, fiber, timed eating, and more). Finally, Donna goes through a long list of ways that we can either increase leptin or increase our ability to hear leptin’s signals. These include fasting, eating anti-inflammatory foods, keeping insulin low, losing weight, eating real foods, consuming fewer processed foods, not drinking calories, eating high protein, exercising, and more!
