Thread: Can LeptinReset cure stubborn belly fat??

  1. #1

    Can LeptinReset cure stubborn belly fat??

    I'm in p3, after 3 rounds of HCG I'm still stuck with all this belly fat. I'm stabilizing around 136 but I need to loose 10 lbs to be at my normal weight(without this fat around my waist!) but its just not happening. I've had this problem since I was in my teens, never being overweight but carrying around this fat around my waist. I have horrible anxiety problems so I'm assuming my main problem is due to cortisol.

    would this diet help this problem? I've read about the symptoms and it seems like this may be my problem. I can't loose weight no matter what I do unless I'm on HCG and I obviously can't stay on it, so could this be a cure for me? Would it help to get these last 10lbs off or is it mainly designed for over 30lbs?

    I also have a gluten intolerance which I'm really struggling with.

    exercising is allowed on this diet or is it only allowed after a certain number of weeks? I would like to keep jogging or doing some sort of exercise but if its restricted I will hold off. I just tend to loose muscle quickly.

    would using protein shakes (I have the casein protein) be ok to incorporate with the breakfast, or possibly as a meal replacement for lunch or dinner?

    I'm just really looking for something that can help battle this problem and help me finally get this spare tire off!


    thanks for any help!

    A lot of us are on the Reset due to the same issues.

    Once you are no longer eating grains or sugar, many people find the belly disappears. But not everyone is there yet. The Reset group here is new-- so there are some folks such as Colleen/Grammy who have become completely Leptin Sensitive and also gained a flatter belly.

    Even though Dr Kruse says that some women gain on the Reset at first (due to hormonal issues), if we stick with it and also possibly add bio-identical hormones, those pounds will leave.

    My advice is to read all the sticky posts of info about the Reset, stick to the rules, and see what happens. Give it 8 weeks. You can always go back to P2 if you want later on.

    Good luck!
    Just read Weight Loss Apocalypse which gave me new resolve.
    Currently getting back to the ticker weight.

    probably but not immediately and not without some sort of adrenal support. in order to make sure you have the right sort of support for for your adrenals you will need testing (4x salivary cortisol) to determine what types of support you will need. If you don`t deal with that issue then you are likely to be stable but unlikely to lose

    I also have a gluten intolerance which I'm really struggling with.
    no grains on Leptin Reset and in particular no gluten, if you haven`t yet check out Dr Davis`Wheat Belly`for even more compelling evidence for why you do not want gluten in your system

    exercising is allowed on this diet or is it only allowed after a certain number of weeks? I would like to keep jogging or doing some sort of exercise but if its restricted I will hold off. I just tend to loose muscle quickly.
    please read the Leptin Rx and Leptin FAQ at Dr Kruse`s site to understand why you do not exercise until you show signs of Leptin Sensitvity. frankly if you have cortisol issues then chronic cardio (jogging) is counter productive anyway. (see Dr Wilson`s site/book on Adrenal Fatigue)

    would using protein shakes (I have the casein protein) be ok to incorporate with the breakfast, or possibly as a meal replacement for lunch or dinner?
    again, please read Dr Kruse`s Leptin FAQ for what is recommended for eating. in short protein shakes are the least desireable alternative, in particular dairy is an issue as not only does it cause insulin spikes in most people but dairy acts as an opiate in your system. if you are gluten intolerant then you should seriously consider NOT having casein as the casein protein is almost identical to the giladin protein and causes problems with most gluten intolerant folk until they are healed (at least 6 months completely clean eating with 0 gluten, that includes cross contamination)

    not saying the above to discourage you but to encourage you to read about the Leptin Reset, understand why you are eating the way it`s recommended and realize that this is for health and is not a quick fix. it`s taken you years to get to this point, unlike hcg Leptin Rx is not necessarily an immediate result on the scale so patience is required

    In a word, yes. We gain around the middle from insulin issues and the leptin protocol really helps if you have any insulin issues at all. I've always carried my weight in my hips and thighs but in recent years I still had a muffin top and after I would lose on an hcg round, more fat would shift to the middle in P3. Now I know why. I was eating every 2-3 hours and that's the worst possible thing. When I started the leptin reset, that is the first thing I noticed. The waist started slimming. Love it!

    thanks for the help. I've been reading as much as possible but there's so much info its hard finding specific answers to questions I have, which is why I asked a few here.

    where/how do I go about the cortisol testing? Any info would be appreciated. I don't have insurance ATM so I'm assuming its going to cost quite a bit, but I definitely want to look into it since this has been an ongoing problem.

    Are there any supplements you'd recommend that I can take OTC?

    I wasn't aware of the issue with casein. I liked the idea of the slow release and maximum nutrient absorption with it. I usually drink one with breakfast, not as meal replacement, but to add to the amount of protein intake. Would an egg protein be a better choice? Its just hard to get the recommended amount of protein for me without adding in something extra such as that.

    I will continue reading more, thanks for the info

    cortisol testing is that onerous on the wallet. go to canaryclub.org and sign up, it's free, then choose the 4x salivary cortisol test from ZRT Labs it will be around $110, they will send you the kit and instructions.

    lots but wait until you know your levels before taking them. Dr James Wilson has a good book that is a primer on Adrenal Fatigue, you can also check the "stopthethyroidmadness" site on adrenal fatigue, it goes into self testing and adaptogens there.

    I use egg white protein powder, either healthy and fit through iherb or I order in bulk from trueprotein.com (a bit pricier but can be customized)
    getting in the recommended amount of protein takes a few days to a week or so but once your body adjusts it's quite easy.

    Grammy, Can you elaborate more on this quote? After my first round I gained some weight back and it all seemed to go right to my belly. Now on Round 2 and perhaps I need to try the leptin re-set for P3 & P4?

    I would like to know this too. Stubborn belly fat seems so common. Did it end up helping you?
