While doing some research on weight problems and Paleo, I came across a brilliant man. His website is www.jackkruse.com. This man is a neurosurgeon and used to be a dentist; he is also a Paleo Health Coach. Dr. Kruse used to weigh 350 lbs. He lost the weight and kept it off for over 5 Years. I have studied his hypothesis and listened to many hours of webinars that talk about his answer. It’s awesome!
The answer, he claims, is leptin resistance. He has proven over and over with patients and readers of his blog, that resetting leptin, the master hormone, and increasing leptin sensitivity not only cures obesity, but Leptin resistance makes us more susceptible to every other health issue related to inflammation in the body;
- Disease in your back
- Degeneration of the spine
- Neck problems
- And problems in the brain
- Hormone imbalance
- Dental Problems
According to Dr. Kruse 68 percent of people who go on a Paleo template do well. The rest are leptin resistant, can’t seem to lose weight and sometimes gain. He says it is all simple biology
(not really so simple).
This is where his Leptin reset works its magic. I have seen this over and over in my own practice. I have clients who follow the Paleo template and can’t lose a pound! Now I understand why and I can guide them correctly.
Dr. Jack Kruses’ Paleo reset takes about 6-8 weeks, Unless a person is severely leptin resistant then it takes longer. If you transition onto a Paleo diet, he claims you will never have to “diet” again!! Well for someone like me who has tried virtually everything, that is an exciting thought!
I am doing the leptin reset right now, I will let you know how it goes. I will keep you posted along the way! Wish me luck.
