Doc, this is a fabulous post! Could you clear up something? I do not believe in calories in/calories out. I watch my carbs but I do not count calories. And will not! LOL I could go on a rant about it. I’ve never seen you tell anyone to count calories while on the leptin reset yet you’ve said calories matter when you’re leptin resistant. What exactly do you mean by that? Do you mean that you DO want people to count calories or just that the type of calories matter? But I’m not counting them even if you tell me to! LOL I will disobey you for the first time.

October 27th, 2011 at 4:25 pm@ Colleen It’s simple. If leptin is “broken” and cant account for calories they matter then because the brain has no way of accounting for them. This i swhy fat people overeat. Their cravings are no longer under control of leptin and NPY and ghrelin and agouti run hog wild. When you regain leptin sensitivity if you eat more than you need you can rid yourself of the excess when you sleep by burning at UCP3 or by exercising in the cold by using UCP1 Both these uncoupling proteins require leptin and a good thyroid function to work. If they are not working you aint burning squat……and hence calories then matter.

    October 27th, 2011 at 6:48 pm@Colleen who said anything about what you eat? You asked about calories……I know obese people dont eat 10000 calories a day. They cant. But they can still gain weight eating 1000……because calories matter to them and they cant tap their fat to burn.

    October 27th, 2011 at 6:54 pmI have been thinking about what you said. Maybe ALL calories are turned to fat when we are LR because the brain doesn’t know what to do with them. So it’s not that we can even cut calories t stop that from happening because the brain doesn’t know how to apportion any of them properly. I can actually see that from personal experience.

    October 27th, 2011 at 6:55 pmAh I see you basically said what I was surmising. I totally get it now. Thanks!

    Colleen again So basically what he's saying is that calories will not make you fat if you are leptin sensitive, no matter what you eat. Your brain knows where to put them. But if you are Leptin Resistant then just about anything you eat turns to fat. I can testify to that because I was one who would gain on 500 calories before hcg. Truly. So hcg was a miracle for me.
