Conquering the Obesity Epidemic in America: The Leptin Hormone/ Obesity Link

Conquering the Obesity Epidemic in America: The Leptin Hormone/ Obesity Link

Many individuals trying to lose weight find it to be very difficult, even if they are eating a small amount of food and excercising. This is one sign of a problem with the hormone leptin, which can lead to obesity and heart disease. The book "Mastering Leptin" reveals the steps that control leptin and make weight loss possible!

(PRWEB) March 24, 2004

Obesity-related disease claimed approximately 400,000 lives in the last year, closing the gap on smoking as the leading cause of preventable death in America. The fact is that the obesity epidemic is preventable, especially if enough people know what to do. Most diets rely on calorie manipulation of one type or another, a technique that usually results in weight loss in the short term and more weight gain in the future. Many individuals trying to lose weight find it to be very difficult, even if they are eating a small amount of food and excercising.

The missing key to weight loss is in understanding leptin. Leptin is a powerful hormone produced in fat cells, in control of ALL other hormones in the body. It is essential for survival, guiding the proper response to starvation. Problems with leptin enforce “starvation metabolism” on an individual, making it very difficult to lose weight. Eating in harmony with leptin is essential for healthy metabolism, especially as a person grows older and begins to struggle with weight-gain around the midsection. Individuals who are overweight make too much leptin.

Key signs of a leptin problem include: uncontrollable sugar and food cravings, late night eating, stress eating, weight gain around the middle, inability to reach a goal weight, yo-yo dieting, low-thyroid symptoms. Left unhandled these problems lead to obesity, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

The breakthrough health book Mastering Leptin by Byron J. Richards, CCN, explains how we can conquer the obesity epidemic in America. Finally the mysteries of the hormone leptin are explained, opening the door for permanent weight loss, resolution of low thyroid symptoms, and significantly improved energy. Richards explains why diets do not work and how weight loss can be easy, safe, and long-lasting. The findings are backed by over 700 of the most crucial and recent leptin-related scientific studies.

Richards states, “It becomes obvious that when a person eats is actually more important than what they eat. Snacking turns out to be one of the most harmful eating habits. Those individuals who make a habit of eating late at night are on a fast track to accelerated aging, poor sleep, and poor health. Keep in mind that this is not a fad diet, this is the new science – and every person needs to understand it.”

Mastering Leptin brings clarity to a lifestyle of healthy eating, resulting in better energy and a higher quality of health. This is the first time it has been possible for individuals to eat in a pattern that actually resolves the symptoms of low thyroid and prevents the onset of many diseases of aging that are currently plaguing our society. Mastering Leptin allows people to put an end to the confusion of countless ways to eat, maintain a healthy body weight without dieting, increase energy and metabolism, and help conquer obesity-related disease in America.
