Fix Your Leptin
Here are a few suggestions for improving leptin sensitivity:
Avoid inflammatory foods: Limit foods that cause inflammation, especially sugary drinks and trans fats.
Eat certain foods: Eat more anti-inflammatory foods, such as fatty fish.
Exercise regularly: Moderate activity can improve leptin sensitivity.
Get enough sleep: Studies have shown that insufficient sleep leads to a drop in leptin levels and increased appetite.
Supplements: In one study, women on a weight-loss diet who took alpha-lipoic acid and fish oil lost more weight and had a smaller decrease in leptin than those in a control group.
