Five Rules of the Leptin Diet


The Leptin Diet is the secret to getting more energy from less food. The scientific principles upon which it is based are unlikely to ever change. This is not a fad diet, a calorie manipulation scheme, or a starvation routine masquerading as a diet. It does not involve deprivation of pleasure. The underlying principles of The Leptin Diet apply to everyone, whether you need to lose weight or not. It is a lifestyle for eating properly grounded in the science of leptin. It is something you can do happily and healthfully for life.

The Five Rules of The Leptin Diet®

1. Never eat after dinner. Finish eating dinner at least three hours before bed.

2. Eat three meals a day. Allow 5-6 hours between meals. Do not snack!

3. Do not eat large meals. Finish a meal when you are slightly less than full.

4. Eat a high protein breakfast. Aim for 20-30 grams of protein at breakfast.

5. Reduce the amount of carbohydrates eaten. Limit, don't cut out carbs.

What to Eat on The Leptin Diet

When you eat is important, and so is what you eat. Eat a variety of fresh, organic foods that give you good energy. It's important to cut out the chemicals and additives and eat REAL food.

Eat Satisfying, Delicious Meals

Don't be calorie obsessed, or calorie ignorant - know the content of the foods you usually eat. Keep each meal between 400 to 600 calories with general ratios of:
40 percent fat
30 percent carbohydrates
30 percent protein

How much protein?

Eat 50 to 75 percent of your ideal body weight in grams of protein per day.

How much fiber?

Include 35 to 50 grams of fiber per day.

No Snacks.

No snacking between meals; it's just a bad habit.
Try beverages with no calories and no artificial sweeteners: Plain hot or iced tea Black coffee Lemon water Avoid: Soda pop, including diet sodas Flavored waters with artificial sweeteners (Splenda, Crystal Lite) Soy foods/drinks (soy irritates the thyroid gland and can inhibit weight loss) Energy drinks

Hungry between meals? Afternoon energy slump?

Drink 8 to 16 oz. of water; hunger and thirst signals are often confused. Take LeptiSlim® between meals to ward off hunger. To combat afternoon energy slump take a Leptin Control Pack® supplement packet in the afternoon.* Busy yourself with activities away from food.

Exercise on The Leptin Diet

Moderate exercise turns on your genes and facilitates healthy leptin function and metabolism. Consistency is more important than intensity. Start out slowly and increase your efforts gradually; do enough to feel refreshed and support your weight loss effort.


Nutritional Supplements on The Leptin Diet

High quality nutritional supplements can help increase energy, reduce food cravings, improve hormone balance, and improve metabolism. They make getting started and staying on track easier. Plus, they can help you get beyond a weight loss plateau.* View supplements >

What is Leptin?

I have spent more than twenty years on the front lines of clinical nutrition helping thousands of people solve very difficult health problems – naturally. In all these years I have never encountered more powerful principles of health than those relating to leptin.

The Five Rules of The Leptin Diet

There are five simple rules that form the core of The Leptin Diet. The quality of the food you eat is of course important. What is interesting about The Leptin Diet is that it is just as important when you eat as what you eat.

The Mastering Leptin Lifestyle

In order to really take charge of leptin you have to actively manage it. Think of leptin as the conductor of your orchestra; will you play beautiful music or does your body suffer from out of tune noise?
