Secrets to Fat Loss – Effective Leptin Management
How to Effectively Control it to Reduce/Burn Fat Stores
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
 Rev. 8/20/2013

Did you know that there's ONE solitary hormone that essentially controls EVERY other weight loss hormone in the body, and the ability to burn fat? In fact, when you have this one hormone under control, fat loss couldn't get easier. On the other hand, when leptin is out of control, losing even a single pound can be nearly impossible. Yes, the hormone Leptin, its affect on body fat accumulation and how to effectively manage the fat problem is the subject of this article. The unfortunate reality is most everyone attempting to unsuccessfully lose weight is fighting a losing battle with the hormone leptin. Knowing this stubborn fact, makes it easier to understand why people struggle continuously to shed those unwanted pounds of fat month after month and year after year. The following facts will explain exactly how leptin is intimately associated with body fat, and how the effective use of a few herbs you've probably never heard of can help you manage and naturally SOLVE the leptin problem poses while reducing those unhealthy fat pounds.

To burn fat effectively, the body depends on the following two things:
1) Leptin levels
2) Leptin "receptors"

First the bad news (Leptin level)…
Whenever starting a diet to reduces calorie intake, leptin levels plummet dramatically reducing the fat burning process. The reason is, lepton’s main function is to protect the body against starvation, and in the event of decreased food/calorie intake (a byproduct of dieting), the body naturally conceders body fat stores as a fundamental asset for survival. Naturally, body fat represents a vast supply of stored energy and warmth, both of which are highly-valued resources when food/calories are in short supply. You see, when dieting, the body isn't aware of your slimmer (less fat) ambitions. In fact, the only thing the body knows in this circumstance is that the calorie intake is on vacation and your natural survival mechanism has lofted a big red flag for “HELP” in the face of a caloric/energy loss emergency.

The factual chemical result of reduced calorie consumption (diet) - is reduced leptin levels equaling a decrease of natural, healthy fat burning. In fact, research has demonstrated that leptin levels drop by as much as 50% after a week of dieting… Because of the inverse relationship between leptin and fat burning, when leptin levels drop by 50% a commensurate drop of 50% in fat-burning potential results in just one WEEK, and this problem compounds with each passing day. Now if this natural leptin hormone survival response isn't bad enough, with every pound shed via diet/starvation, leptin levels fall further, making it increasingly more chemically difficult to lose fat. Yes! When dieting, you’re fighting against one of the most powerful survival mechanisms in the body, a very daunting task indeed.

Second - Fat loss plateaus (Leptin receptors)!
Now, the above scenario is only HALF the problem and a significant problem it is. The other half of this problem is called "leptin resistance". The unfortunate reality is that the vast majority of people suffer from this condition due to years of high body fat levels and a diet full of processed, high calorie, low nutrient foods. This problem is at the foundation of not only fat accumulation (obesity) but nearly every other ill health problem plaguing modern man. 

Leptin resistance simply means that even at high levels, leptin is no longer able to properly trigger the fat burning process, dramatically decreasing the body's ability to reduce fat. This could be a very discouraging fact for fat loss enthusiast. Fortunately, there IS a solution to this problem.

The solution
Yes! Fat reduction is a difficult problem, especially when most people are habitually consuming the extremely unhealthy SAD (excessive protein, sugar, fat and calorie) diet. If losing fat were easy everyone would be muscular, lean, fit and optimally healthy. Of course this is not the case as obesity and degenerative disease are currently reaching epidemic proportions in America. Because this problem is but a symptom of a more insidious problem chronic and institutionalized unhealthy behavior, correcting unhealthy behavior must be the primary objective in reducing fat accumulation and restoring optimal health. Below are a few behavior change secrets that will increase leptin and reduce stored fat.

1. A consumptive habit that helps significantly is incorporating a weekly “cheat day”. This requires consuming an additional 1000 calories one day a week. Of course you can’t have a cheat day EVERY day and expect to lose fat. On "cheat day" each week produces the best results so pick a day and pig out. Remember, the idea is to increase calories not the consumption of unhealthy foods. Try to keep the consumption of unhealthy foods (highly processed foods & carbohydrates) as much as possible. More fruits and vegetables are healthiest. 
2. Reputable scientific research revealed that carbohydrates have the greatest net effect on leptin hormone levels. So the secret to effectively using this fact to reduce fat is after a "cheat day" when leptin levels are declining, add small amounts of additional carbohydrates (10-20 grams) to your diet each day until your next cheat day. This “reverse carbohydrate tapering” technique will help prevent leptin levels from falling too rapidly. The limitation lies in the amount of carbohydrates we’re able to utilize without negatively affecting fat loss. While the above secrets will positively effect the body’s production of leptin as fat decreases, the extra leptin won’t be beneficial unless you take action to improve your body’s sensitivity to leptin. Unfortunately, “leptin resistance” is common due to long term high body fat levels and SAD diets full of processed, high sugar/carbohydrate foods. Leptin resistance relegates the body unresponsive to leptin in many cases.
3. Its important to understand that consuming certain types of food can significantly increase leptin sensitivity. Knowing that consuming large amounts of simple sugars and highly processed foods is one of the main villain contributors to leptin resistance is a valuable tool in the battle for less fat and optimal health. The good news is you can immediately begin repairing your leptin resistant receptors by following this one simple rule. Apart from the cheat day, strive to eat only single-ingredient foods meaning, simple consume a single whole food whose only ingredient is food, no additives, examples below.

One Ingredient Foods

















Black beans


Green beans


Generally speaking any meat, vegetable, nut, seed, oil, bean, or fruit qualifies if it’s consumed separately. Relatively simple isn’t it? Unlike highly processed foods with many artificial, man made chemical ingredients many of which most can’t even pronounce. These whole foods are relatively natural foods that contain only one ingredient. When you begin the habit of predominantly consuming these types of foods absent all the processed food chemicals you’ll immediately begin repairing your leptin sensitivity and restoring leptin to its biologically intended duty of effectively burning off stored fat.

There is a simpler way (effective herb therapy)
Yes! There is a simpler way to manage internal biochemistry and maintain high leptin levels as fat drops, while also increasing the body's sensitivity to the hormone leptin. This method maintains the body in a perpetual fat-burning state (permanent high leptin levels = high levels of fat burning). This method involves the effective use of specific herbs together creating a synergetic effect shown to affect leptin levels from both problematic angles (production and sensitivity). Because we live in a “give it to me now in pill form” culture, many will settle for taking the pills and ignore the foundational problem (unhealthy behavior/consumptive habits). If you are one of these people, don’t bother wasting your money on these herbs. While they are powerful against to boost the body in the right chemical direction they are not a cure all and they won’t overcome chronic unhealthy SAD behavior. The most successful approach to leptin biochemical management is by changing unhealthy behavior to healthy behavior consumptive habits and speeding the process by effective utilization of the following herbal supplements.

What are these secret miracle fat burning herbs?
*** 1. Irvingia Gabonensis Extract – A powerful extract from the African mango has been shown to support leptin sensitivity by inhibiting the production of C-reactive protein (CRP), a chemical linked to leptin resistance, by up to 52%.
Therapeutic dose;
150 mg (twice daily prior to meals)
Added health benefits;
Decrease total cholesterol and blood sugar levels
*** 2. Oleanolic Acid – This compound from olive tree leaves stimulates specific gut peptides called Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP-1). Research shows that this extract can increase GLP-1 by 48%, which has been linked to increased leptin production.
** 3. Modifilan – A potent seaweed extract from pristine Arctic waters off the coast of Iceland, has been shown to stimulate increased leptin production in fat cells by up to 18% through its ability to stimulate Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) in the adrenals. Stimulation of TSH stimulates the production of leptin in fat cells.
*4. Panax Notoginseng – A commonly used traditional Chinese herb called "Shan Qi" was recently shown to have unique metabolic properties, including naturally suppressing appetite and increasing leptin sensitivity.
* 5 & 6. YerbaX – A potent blend of a rare green tea extract and South American yerba mate extract which together have been shown to synergistically increase resting metabolic rate and mobilize fatty acids from fat cells to be burned.

The effective use of the above herbs along with prudent behavior and consumptive habit modification can serve to dramatically increase leptin levels, decrease body fat and perhaps best of all, dramatically improve health.

Currently America is falling deeper into the black abyss (epidemic) of obesity, diabetes, and associated degenerative diseases. Make no mistake, this is not genetic, bad luck or someone else’s fault. It is the result of general societal moral and character degradation. We have simply ignored our responsibility to live in harmony with nature. Perhaps the most insidious causative symptom is the SAD diet. The predominant SAD diet and associated chronic irresponsible and unhealthy behavior habits have resulted in systemic biological damage causing leptin hormone resistance along with most of the ill health problems common today. The main way to solve this leptin resistance dilemma is to take personal responsibility and change behavior habits to conform to the requirements of nature by balancing internal biochemistry. This essentially means adopting healthy consumptive and behavior habits. Supplements can help speed up biochemical balance but won’t help unless healthy behavior is the foundation of any optimal health recovery program. Start now, adopt new optimal healthy behavior habits and learn to use specific supplements to encourage the process.

"Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

Important understanding
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

   Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
requires personal excellence,
advances positive action,
strengthens personal power,
promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.
