Leptin Diet

By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

leptin-dietThe Leptin Diet seeks to balance Leptin, which is a hormone that assists in regulating both appetite and metabolism.

Leptin was only discovered in 1994 – therefore research is only very recent.

Leptin levels are generally proportional to body fat, as leptin is released by fat cells. It is thought that many obese people may have developed leptin resistance – whereby the body fails to respond to leptin signals. This begins a cycle where more leptin is produced.

Mastering Leptin Basics


Mastering Leptin teaches dieters to blance leptin and cause it to start working again by following a prescribed eating plan.

Basically, dieters should avoid eating for 5 to 6 hours between each meal. Meals should be low in sugar and refined carbs but high in protein and fiber.

The protein and fiber will help the dieter feel fuller longer and make the fasting time easier. Dieters should also be aware of foods that “induce cravings” and avoid those types of foods.

These can be different for different people but usually these foods are high sugar, high salt, and high simple carb type foods.

After two weeks of eating in this manner the body will adjust and the Leptin diet will be much easier.

    I have a soy and gluten allergy, so my pasta is rather expensive.

    • Faith

      I don’t know where you are located but I also have some issues. I am allergic to wheat. I have found that there are many different pastas available that are very expensive, however corn based pastas are a lot less expensive & taste great…better than rice pasta. I’m in Canada and we have Bulk Barns which is a bulk food store. Check out those kind of stores…or, you can buy it off of eBay. ;)

  • Jessica

    Mary – I have hypothyroid disorder, but it is fairly well managed with meds. Although I am not a doctor, my own personal experience is that highly restrictive diets DON’T WORK! Your body will think it’s starving and store all the calories it can. I ended up feeling like crap all the time and was on the verge of depression. You need to eat for both physical and emotional health!

    I had a lot of success with the Rosedale Diet that focused on lots of good fats and protien. In addition to losing weight, I feel good. I recommend you at least grab the book from the library to see what it’s all about.

    Americans have been fooled for the past few decades that its good to have snacks so many snacks during the day. They are just products of a snack industry that has too much power. Imagine what would happen if everyone went back to eating the way our grandparents used to eat…3 square meals a day lots of exercise and hardly any processed foods. Those companies that sell a lot of snack would lose a lot of money if that happened. The leptin diet is just a normal way of eating. I live in Japan and the reason why people are so skinny here is that they hardly ever snack, they have 3 meals with lots of veges and complex carbs, and they dont drink sugary drinks like orange juice or other fruit juices, and even their desserts has 1/3 the sugar that american snack would.
    Also for the people struggling with weight please bear with me and dont think that I am trying to down talk anyone. I am just giving you a few reasons why the Japanese have some of the healthiest in the world and middle aged women here look like they are only 30.
    Also for those who eat throughout the day, they might lose weight maybe not… i gained weight doing that. But also the more often you eat the faster you age. Its backed by scientific research. Hence why Japanese people look so young. Dont get me wrong people here love food but when they eat one of their 3 meals they really eat.lol
    also it is
    Actually a “childish” thing for an adult to drink orange juice here lol As an american its hard for me to give up OJ but people age here slowly because they dont eat so much sugary processed foods and they dont eat as much as the average american. I have had my Japanese friends laugh at me when I told them how many americans eat and snack 6 times a day. They were like no wonder americans are so fat and they also cannot eat a lot of the american sweets because its too sweet. They never add sweetners to their tea and they love veges. so the leptin diet has how people eat here…. just my 2 cents…

    • DavidB.

      I totally agree with Kay, and I lost 50lbs. this year, due to following the same advice.

    • cb

      Snacks throughout the day do not equal eating 100 calorie snack packets.

      Ideally, those snacks are whole foods, such as nuts, fruits, veggies, and add a bit of protein too. Just an oz, not a full serving, just a snack size.

      I like to try many different types of eating because it’s fun to learn about and see what my body likes. My body functioned very well with 5 meals a day. Every meal had a veggie, protein and carb. My weight was maintained at a good weight doing that. And kept my metabolism going.

      There is no wool.

    • Eric Krebes

      Kay, I see that your comment if over a year old, but regardless, you hit it right on the head! That is exactly what has happened. Every average person I’ve ever known who ate/eats three meals a day, and ONLY three meals a day (not over-eating) has been, or is thin. I might agree that the serious “body-builders” out there may need more food intake as they burn so much through constant calorie burning exercise, but for your average person, 5-6 smaller meals a day?? All that does is train you how to eat more!! They put the wool over everyone with that one!

      • Jude Hipperson

        I don’t agree with much of what you said. It’s a proven fact that if you eat 5 small meals daily you WILL lose weight. I lost 52 lbs in 1 1/2 months…..never felt better in my life and I have kept it off for 4 yrs now. The trick is “portion control”, “portion control”, “portion control!” If you eat 1/2 of what you eat normally for breakfast and then a small portion of something healthy – such as carrot and celery sticks – mid-morning. Then you won’t be that hungry at lunch – then eat smaller portion. Mid afternoon have a small – eg. yogurt, carrots and celery sticks [if you only knew the benefits of celery!]. Guess what? Suppertime you won’t need a portion of what you used to eat. And the best part is…….you can have something like mini-bag of popcorn for night time snack. Also, be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day – and that doesn’t mean juice, pop, etc. It’s got to be water! Remember……..if you are craving something, eat MEAT!! It really, really takes the craving away and you’ve opted out for eating all those calories and voila!! You’ll be losing weight rapidly.

  • JC

    I have struggled with weight for 30 years! And tried EVERY diet under the Sun! The keys I have found to losing weight and keeping it off are simple! 1. Determine WHY you REALLY want to lose weight and what it will give you (psychologically speaking) once you hit your ideal weight goal! 2. Make sure you enjoy the process (otherwise you won’t stay the course). 3. Eat plenty of protein with EVERY meal (as a rule of thumb about 0.8 grams per pound of body weight, this can be harder than you think!) 4. Go for a walk every morning BEFORE breakfast (this really gets the metabolism going!) 5. Keep well hydrated (plenty of water, herbal teas etc) 6. Keep Carbohydrate intake down and if you do eat Carbs, focus on Fruit and Vegetables (like sweet potatoes, I personally eat less than 150 grams of carbs per day). 7. SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP (this is a real deal breaker to losing weight!) 8. Keep Stress levels down (practice deep breathing, yoga or whatever it takes to relax and chill out!) 9. Eat Loads of green and multi-colored vegetables either Raw or Steamed (the fiber really helps with weight loss, not to mention all the other health benefits!) 10. Don’t overdo it in the gym! (exercising 3 or 4 times a week for 30 mins such as cycling, swimming or all over body circuit training is enough, too many people spend way too much time in the gym thinking it’s the exercise which will burn the fat!) And finally this is exactly what I did (and still do after 12 months) and I have dropped 55 pounds in weight FEEL GREAT and still eat plenty of food and don’t feel like I am on a diet! (Example Breakfast 4 egg omelet with spinach and mushrooms and tomatoes, Lunch a huge green tuna salad, afternoon snack of mixed nuts and dried fruit and Dinner a steamed broccoli and carrots, half a large baked sweet potato and a large (lean) beef steak!)

    iwant to loose 5kgs but with too much walk,yoga n moderate diet i am loosing nothg.wil this diet plan b gud enough to loose my excess 5-10kgs?any one help me.

  • Mary

    I think it’s pretty cruel when companies feed on people who have a hard time losing weight. To the “Anonymous” person, I will say yes, there are a lot of quack jobs out there but I “eat less”, as a matter of fact, I went on a very restricted diet and lost NOTHING! I have weighed the same 197 pounds after gaining 65 pounds at age 28 from a Thyroid disorder. I use to model, I felt good about myself, I could wear a bathing suit without feeling like people were staring at me, and I could eat without feeling guilty if I had that occasional piece of chocolate. My life has been a chain of issues, anemia, high blood pressure, B12 deficiencies and celiac disease. I eat 3 meals a day, very small…mostly soup and salad…no bread WHATSOEVER and yet no matter how much I exercise (every day for an hour with weights every other) I am still stuck at 197…it won’t budge. I get tired of hearing people tell me to try this or try that…and I’m tired of Quack jobs. I’m tired of people judging me when they have no idea what people like myself go through day and day out. Now that I’m 44, I’m waiting for the next shoe to drop…am I going to gain more weight now that I’m middle age? I don’t know…but I’m scared of becoming larger than I am. So, if someone who has had Thyroid problems (HYPO-thryoidism), anemia, celiacs disease and high blood pressure who is a medical professional…and has had any success losing weight doing this…please step up…I’m willing to bend my ear!

    • Catherine

      I am not a medical professional but I do have hypothyroidism, celiac disease, anemia and had high blood pressure. I also have had an ovarian cyst the size of a small water melon, my gallbladder and one kidney removed, as well as hernia repairs resulting from incisional hernias from the surgeries, sound depressing enough? I also had instant metapause from a radical hysterectomy because of the tumour. But in
      the last 14 months I have finally managed to lose 100lbs. I could even send you pictures to prove it. I am now struggling with the last 20lbs but I am getting there! I have done this completely on my own by taking the time to research what works for MY Body type! Feel free to contact me if you ever want to chat about it. My discoveries are too lengthy to list here but I would love to share them with you. If I could help, I would love to because for us, it can seem soooo discouraging!

      • ginette

    Catbell7 what is the WXL product?

  • Mommy Dearest

    I lost 100 pounds using this way of eating. I did not know why it worked so well until now. Seeing the why’s and where’s of the inner workings makes sense now!!! Some of the comments above tell me the general population needs some nutrition education as did I.
    Comment above: ??? 3 meals a day and can’t lose weight…ummmm 3 pizzas? 3 KFC meals? Denial for breakfast, ignorance for lunch and laziness for dinner. Get educated on all things fruit, protein, veggies and olive oil all of you. And yes, eat a multi-vite, get 8hrs sleep, drink clean water, no fast food but once a month. Get moving.

  • j_smoove

    This sounds great. I confess, I have not read the book; but, anyone wishing to “reset” their bodily functions after many years of abuse (whether intentional or not) might want to review UltraMetabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman.

  • jon

    I hope healthy for life is still monitoring this chain. I’m reading the 5 rules from the site provided down the list and having read almost every single scientific study involving leptin influence on obesity this includes leptin resistance and leptin deficiency which are two completely different animals with two completely different treatments. Anonymous was correct these rules have nothing to do with leptin byron is spewing the same rules they give to all overweight people and they will serve to do nothing but make someone who is leptin deficient heavier. Someone with this disorder must stockpile on carbs to fire up their metabolism since the body is not responding to or not getting the leptin to cause this reaction. One way they diagnose it is if you lose weight eating carbs. I’m sorry if your feelings are hurt because you’ve been swindled by another crackpot with a way to make a buck but you really need to do your homework before you tell someone they’re wrong.

  • mike

    how do you get leptin?

    • Marishka

      You get a leptin resistance by eating bad carbs and sugary foods. Just like you get an insulin resistance. Both work in harmony! Once these two out of control then no matter how much you diet and work out and untill you turn blue in the face nothing will work! The more you work out the more food you will crave!!!! There is a lot of interesting and helpful information on Leptin , one of which happens to be “The Rosedale Diet book “. It is amazing!!!!! And the most important thing is that everything is reversible simply by following rules and being disciplined! There is something out there to help people like us to control craving unhealthy foods such as sugar and bad carbs I call it a magical mix—– THE LEPTIN CONTROL PACK by Wellness Resources. It is amazing!!!!! Something I should have known about 40 years ago!!!!!!!
      I haven’t been feeling myself for the past year so I decided to go for a blood test one day even though I have yearly check ups. It got to the point where from the most energetic and happiest person I turned into an unhappy one!!!! I realized what bad carbs and sugar were doing to me but I couldn’t shake off the habit. And even when I decided to diet and went crazy exercising nothing worked. Anyway my blood test results awoke me!!!!! At 40 my cholesterol was through the roof, I developed and insulin resistance and was getting very close to getting a diabetes. Plus I found out that I am allergic to glluten as well.
      One day I set in my arm chair dressed in my sportswear and just couldn’t push myself to go to the gym. I lost my interest for dieting and exercise . Somehow I managed to get out of the house heading straight to the gym . Just to go and get dissapointed again!!!!
      And I believe that everything happens for a reason!!!!! Almost at the end of my workout my friend grabbed me by my hand and said “I have to introduce you to someone !” I made an appointment right away to see this someone special the next day!!!!!!
      I am a new person today!!!! I stick to my Rosedale Diet Book and my Leptin control pack 2 times a day!!!!! Plus Cod liver oil 4 soft gels twice a day and flax seed oil 4 soft gels twice a day. And this diet plan doesn’t not require excercise!!!!! When you loose the unwanted weight then you start!!!! A light 30 min walk is ok but not needed!!!! You can loose weight the healthy way and turn the clock back!!!!!!
      Just stick to this rule—– only 3 meals a day and plenty of water or herbal tea!!!!!! The leptin pack will take care of all the unstoppable cravings!!!!!
      Stay away from bad carbs, sugar , achocol , dairy and soy! Untill your desired weight loss and even then keep it to minimum or the weight will come back on! And your Leptin will be out of balance again!!! It is all about resetting your Leptin and bringing it down to where it should be. Have a blood test—- for Leptin, Sugar and Cholesterol so you know how to proceed .
      Stick to good fats like – olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil, walnut oil, black and green olives and mostly all nuts ( but no peanuts) !!!And don’t forget to have at least half of an avocado a day! Use lemon or balsamic vinegar as your dressing .
      Plenty of green salads , grilled veggies and fish, chicken, meat , eggs and qual eggs. ;) You can have canned sardines and tuna fish in olive oil. My new healthy food never tasted so good!!!!
      It is all about you and how much you want to do this !!! If you don’t do it for yourself then who will be able to do it for you???? Make a promise to someone and just do it! I couldn’t do it on my own , my cravings were constantly taking over me!!! It wasn’t me but a disbalance of my hormones!!!! I made my promise to someone I was introduced to by my friend that morning !!!! I knew that i can lie to myself by going constantly to my snack cabinet for more popcorn , all kind of chips and chocolate!!!!! It will take time and a lot of patience!!!!! But what do you have to loose???
      Good luck!!!!

  • haika

    I’ve been on an anti-inflammatory diet geared towards regaining leptin sensitivity since mid May which I derived from information found in Galland (The Fat Resistance Diet), Richards (Mastering Leptin), and Rosedale. I included information from anti-inflammatory eating plans not geared towards regaining leptin sensitivity as well, since my blood work shows high levels of systemic inflammation. This primarily involved elimination of nightshade veggies in addition to all the guidelines in the leptin diet books. There are a number of inconsistencies between the various anti-inflammation plans AND between leptin diets so I kept what made sense to me and ignored the rest. I avoid all soy, starchy carbs and foods including added sugars. I avoid most processed foods but still eat relatively clean foods like Larabars on occasion. I buy only in the organic section. I do eat non-fat yogurt and kefir and occasionally eat a few nonsalted raw almonds as snacks but do follow the Richards meal timeline rather closely. Since I have to get all my thyroid hormones artifically, I have to time my meals carefully anyway. I noticed that within the first 2 weeks I experienced a profound reduction in my subjective ‘hunger’ and found it much easier to follow the meal time line. Most cravings disappeared although I occasionally do crave ‘some’ starch and cook up some veggies and fish with quinoa or brown/wild rice. As long as I can eat raw fruit, I no longer crave sweet baked goods (and I have a powerful sweet tooth). I have added avocado and much more fish and have added a number of supplements (co-enzyme Q10, acetyl-L-carnitine, Tonalin CLA, alphna lipoic acid and increased my fish oil intake. I’ve lost 25 lbs and hope to lose an additional 20-30 but time will tell. This is the ONLY diet that has really worked for me as the typical reduced calorie/increased activity didn’t work like it did in the past. If I can get my transient migratory pain flares under control as well, I can increase my exercise which may improve my fitness level as well! I do have to bring my own foods to family get-togethers and social events, but I figure that finally finding a way to healthful eating the suits my body is worth the slight inconvenience. I feel the same way about spending more at the grocery store….my health is worth it.

  • Jose Gutierrez

    I had morning BG readings(85-97) having a snack 2 hours before bedtime. After 1 week on the Rosedale diet (no betime snack) my reading have been between 100-108. This includes daily exercise on both instances. I’ve been told that my protein/fat intake is being converted to glucose since my body has been a sugar burner. Is this correct or is there another explanation.

  • Healthy4Life

    I can tell from the comments above that many people haven’t read either of Byron’s books. The “Anonymous” person said that the rules have nothing to do with Leptin, but both books explain exactly what they have to do with leptin. Also, there is so much information on why just eating less does not work for everyone. Please people understand the topic before you post something. I have read the books and have a basic understanding of what leptin is – I have tried the Leptin Diet and it worked great for me. Now, I follow the rules without even thinking about them. I don’t have cravings anymore and I continue to keep the 25 lost pounds off.

  • LaDawn

    I have been on the Leptin Diet for three weeks and am averaging 3 pounds per week. I have a lot of hormone problems, hypothyroid, hashimotos, female hormones and this diet has worked wonders for me. I felt starved on the South Beach diet and just found it impossible. I have never had a diet work for me like this one. I think the food portions and not eating between meals has worked wonders for me! Might not be for everyone but if you have hormone troubles..this is the diet for you! I also had adrenal disorder two years ago and finally now am feeling great. I was very, very ill for two years and now feel so much better. It also helps the Fibromyalgia a lot. If you have Fibromyalgis…get his Mastering Leptin book too. Both are best as the the Mastering Leptin can get into some heavy stuff and the paperback short version is a good read and simple to understand!

  • Aviva

    I find the South Beach Diet to accomplish the same goal and with fewer cravings. This Leptin Diet is heavy on startches and might be a problem for those prone to diabetes or issues with blood sugar regulation especially in these stressful times, or anyone with low thryoid or fatigue issues. I’d rather Besides, who wants to weight and measure everything? Check out the diet that thousands of Florida citizens requested be written into a book – a diet created by a cardiologist looking to control his own weight. South Beach just makes so much sense and you can eat as often as you like.

  • Lauren

    you are to have 3 meals a day, that are unprocessed and full of fresh nutritous foods. breakfast have a peice of raw whole fruit on an empty stomach and follow with a medium bowl of raw oasts. This cleans away all toxins from the body and the high fiber keeps you full for longer, add cinnamon and this will ensure your blood sugar levels remain equal.

    Have a small recess of fresh whole fruit and some unsalted unroasted nuts such as almonds – not peanuts or cashews. this will give you protein, continue the fiber and help to keep your metabolism running fast.

    Have a lunch that is a salad and low fat meat sandwhich with some carrots and celery on the side. The carrots and celery are negative calories and high in water so eat as much as you want. The bread should ideally be wholemeal or rye and full of seeds because it has lower sugar and higher fiber and lower gi than white bread. have little or not butter/mayonaise/sauce because these are added calories that are undeeded.

    for afternoon tea have a small handful of dried fruit and a carrot/celery. this continues your metabolism running and has lots of vitamins nad minerals and protein.

    for dinner have lean meat with fresh salad without dressing. add lemon juice to keep the salad fresh and wil aid with digestion.

    most people should have up to 30grams of fiber but get about max 10grams a day. a diet high in fiber and protein helps you fuller for longer and can prevent many cancers and diseases.

    drink lots of water, this will detox your body and rehydrate you which can then get rid of water weight – which is water that lies on the outside of your cell rather than the inside. by rehydrating your body you hydrate the inside cells and that gets rid of the fluid on the outside cells.

    have regular exercise everyday and your body will be much healthier and fitter in no time :)

    diet, pls mail me the do n dont’s for Vegetarian. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

  • Ed Newbold

    Oh, and the above “diet meal plan” is not very good. I’d recommend simply eating a good breakfast of your choice, followed by a normal lunch 5 or 6 hours later, then completing the cycle with a regular dinner 5 or 6 hours after that.

    You’re not suppose to “snack” on anything, but when I do violate this rule, I snack on whole cherries, raw carrots, celery, etc.

    But, hey, that’s just me! (smile)

  • Ed Newbold

    Q: “How come I am putting on weight having just three meals a day?”

    A: It depends. What are you eating? How much are you eating at each meal? When do you eat your meals? How many snacks, diet cokes, pieces of fruit, etc., do you consume between meals? How much stress is in your life? How much sleep do you get each night?

    The reason I ask this is because I have followed the 5 Rules for quite a while, and my body has settled down into a comfort zone of its own seeking. I lost 30 pounds quickly and easily without having to do much more than adjust my eating and sleeping habits.

  • az

    Rules for weight loss:
    be in a negative energy balance
    have optimal levels of leptin
    low levels of insulin
    low levels of glycogen

  • catbell7

    Dr. Rosedale’s book is very good – along with the WXL product — even my MD is fascinated – most of it is very low glycemic (which is being done in Canada and Aus and very easy to follow. And do remember 1 inch of muscle weighs 3 times more than 1 inch of fat -so instead of using your scale – use your tape measure — you want to keep the muscle and lean and rid yourself of the “fat” — some basic key elements are basically avoiding anything that is processed, white flour, white sugar, artificial beverages, a great sweetner is SweetFiber as it has nearly 1 full gram of fiber in each little packet and is delish!! The only “breads” are the sprouted grain ones – Ezkiel has a low glycemic that is delish and so does French Meadow Bakery — delish bagel with 14 grams of fiber/10 protein and 1/2 is very filling!! I’ve some PDF’s that are very helpful in learning low glycemic (it really is very simple once you understand it and very high fiber which is beneficial to all of us!! And snacks are encouraged – now a snack is 8-10 raw almonds, 5 pieces of cheese (real cheese not processed american crappola) the size of 5 dice — serving of meat protein is about the same size as a deck of cards. And within a few days cravings diminish dramatically!!

  • Anonymous

    The five rules have NOTHING to do with leptin. They are using “Leptin” as some magical buzzword. the 5 rules break down into “eat less”. Duh.

  • WhimsyT

    You can easily find the 5 rules online by searching.
    http://www.health4youonline.com/article_five_rules_for_mastering_leptin.htm
    But the book Mastering Leptin has more than the 5 rules. It is very scientific so the majority of people won’t care for wading through the mountains of scientific research he summarizes. Also, I’m finding that the 5 Rules don’t work for everyone. My body seems to like waiting 12 hours between eating dinner and eating breakfast the next day, but going 5 hours between meals was not reasonable. I became shaky and didn’t feel well at all, even though my blood sugar readings were completely normal, so it wasn’t due to hypoglycemia. I think a better plan for dealing with leptin resistance is Dr. Rosedale’s diet, even though it’s more stringent. Dr. Rosedale recommends not eating within 3 hours of going to bed, so by the time you add up the 3 hours plus the 7-8 hours of sleep, it equals Byron Richard’s 12 hour recommendation. Byron Richard’s supplements are also way over priced, and many of them simply aren’t necessary. Rosedale recommends supplements, too, but you don’t have to buy “his” brand of them, and you can get by on fewer than he recommends.
