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.
