Your Key Fat-Burning Hormone–How to Boost It

Becky and I were enjoying some pizza on Sunday, and our daughter was a bit shocked. “Aren’t you going to gain fat?” she asked, knowing our normal healthy eating patterns. “Nope, just the opposite. It’s actually helping us get leaner.” Not kidding…
 
We explained to her about boosting your primary fat-burning hormone with pizza and desserts. Below is a short article on exactly how to do it by nutritionists Joel Marion and Josh Bezoni….
 
 
Today, we’re going to teach you how you can use a free-eating day (including dessert!) to actually help you BOOST your leptin levels and fat-burning next week. Ready?You see, this scientifically-backed technique is known as periodic overfeeding, or more simply put, strategically “cheating” on your diet with all your favorites foods… like pizza, or one of our all-time favorites…Mac N’ Cheese! Now that’s good stuff. 🙂You may be wondering how in the world eating these “bad” foods can actually have a positive effect on your waistline over the coming week, and it all traces back to leptin.

Leptin levels are highly correlated to your calorie intake, and after only one week following a calorie-restricted diet, levels can drop by as much as half, putting you at a dismal 50% of your fat-burning potential.

And while that’s clearly bad news for anyone looking to achieve a flat belly fast, there’s also a glimmer of hope hidden in that unfortunate truth.

You see, because leptin is so closely related to your calorie intake, research also shows that periodically going OFF your diet and indulging in your favorite high-calorie foods can give suffering leptin levels a much-needed bump in the right direction.

For this reason, we recommend to all our clients that they incorporate a weekly “cheat day” in to their nutrition programs—adding an additional 1000 calories or more in one day—and it’s something you should definitely consider adding to yours.

And best of all, that means goodies and treats one day a week can actually BOOST your fat-burning for a few days after provided you get right back on track…so enjoy the holiday and relax a little!

The down side to cheat days, however, is that the increase in leptin they produce only lasts so long and leptin levels will again begin to decline once you return to a reduced-calorie diet. Naturally, you can’t have a cheat day EVERY day and expect to lose fat, so what else can be done to combat fallen leptin levels throughout the week?

Fortunately, we show you an even BETTER, easier method (believe it or not) for increasing your daily leptin levels. Check it out HERE.

      Eileen, end-of-the-week refeed day is common up to a few weeks from a physique contest; however, you may want to use cleaner carbs. Just have a high-carb day with more fruit, rice, etc. Processed sugar and wheat (bread) can cause bloating in many people and/or water retention under the skin. –Steve Holman

    You have to give your body time to adjust to the lowered leptin levels so you won’t feel hungry. The best way to combat lowered leptin levels is to cheat. Yes you now have permission to Cheat! How exciting.
