    btw - any one who's been doing this for a while notice an increase in sex drive? I'm trying to figure out if its the leptin resetting itself...or if its the fact ds is no longer nursing every 2-3hrs at night? I'm guessing its most likely the decrease in nursing....but the leptin resetting could come into account too/

    which on a tangent but related to leptin...I wonder if a re-set leptin sensitivey could impact my milk supply on a positive level, & allow me to decrease or eliminate domperidone? Since milk is supply/demand and is regulated by the hormone prolactin... I'm thinking there's a relationship...

    Dr. K - any thoughts on either of these?
    Ok.....In my patients who have been doing this greater than three years all have reported dramatic increases in sex. In fact most of the ladies got their hubbies to do this diet because the men all noticed their wives craved more sex. My own wife will tell you we have a lot more sex. We avg 7-10 times a week now for five years. My wife adopted this diet about 18 months ago and she has seen the same changes. This has to do with leptin effects on fecundity and on the production of sex steroid hormones. Nursing increases oxytocin and progesterone and dampens estrogenic growths surges. You will not have an increased sex drive from oxytocin but it will induce sleep and calmness and mood smoothing effects. You milk supply will certainly be affected by LS. That is well documented in the literature already. Colostrum quality improves tremendously and this is ironically how a child actually gets leptin from its mother. If you read my first post on leptin I explain that. Prolactin has more to do with milk secretion than its quality. Its quality is a function of omega three's in the mothers buttocks, hips and belly and her Leptin status.

      HAir and nail changes absolutley are tied to LS returning.......these are great signs. Also in women look for skin softening and your hubby noticing different changes in your body as well. I get asked this all the time by the men. Women also begin to notice facial skin changes around month three to six.
      The nail and hair improvements have been amazing shockers. The only thing my husband has noticed is that my biceps are more pronounced with barely any exercise and I now have a definite waist line which I've never had. There have also been a few people tell me I have a "glow" and look younger. What other changes would my husband notice?

      • AS for the women criticism......my biggest homeruns have been in women.....one lady now 84 years old has a six pack and a 58 yr old boyfriend she wears out. This works for men or women and the key is women have to be more cognizant of their underlying hormonal issues. When I get a women who stalls or the goes the wrong way I immediately start looking for hormonal imbalance.....once fixed they tend to sail along. The changes take longer in women but eventually they catch and smoke most men. Most men are happy to lose weight and become more sexually active but they rarely finish the job. If you read my last leptin post on June 29 you'll see one of my homerun patients Jodi. She posted in there. She also sent her original story to Robb Wolf's website. Make no mistake this works for women.

        • @DigitalSurgeon: Is another sign of LS returning and/or hormones evening out is seeing acne breakout over your body? I've been PCOS for over 2 decades more than likely so I'm just curious of this.

            You mentioned your orgasm.......that too is a leptin issue because it stimulates release of oxytocin and causes the pronouced changes in lubrication and orgasm. You might also see after those orgasms you sleep like never before. It immediately sends huge brain signals to convert stores of serotonin to melatonin. Once this happens consistently you will notice another effect I got ridiculed for on PH. You nipples will become very sensitive and help you you do two things........one nipple massage will reduce your risk of breast CA by 50% because of the sensitivity to oxytocin......it immediately causes a surge of intramammary progesterone that stops all estrogenic growth.......and two it will help you sleep more soundly because of the increases in oxytocin and melatonin spoken of earlier.........

            • PCOS is 100% reversible when you become solidly LS for 12-18 months......Leptin controls all your sex steroid synthesis and balance. They key is avoiding exogenous synthetic hormones that make reversal of PCOS a pain in the ass for the clinician.

                With what you said, I slept like a baby that night and yes, I have about the same if not better nipple sensitivity that I had as a teenager. I've also been off BC for about 5 months now.

                • On the synthetic hormones thing, those are a train wreck when it comes to thyroid meds too.

                  • Have read about 85% of this thread & would like to fix what I think is might be a leptin/stress problem, BUT and I have a few questions. Lately I am moody (swing from okay/happy to tired to anxious/depressed) after quite a long stint of feeling great on primal w/o any problems like this (had these problems before primal while eating lots of gluten/sugars). Primal eliminated most of my issues for me when I started, but like I said they have come back. Can't seem to find out why.....

                    Directed at Dr. Kruse: If you so choose, could you help with a question I have for you? Can you do leptin resistance and have positive results while on a low dose of an SSRI med along w/SAM E, 5 HTP? Does this medicine and these supplements screw with anything, and can I still expect good results? I have lowered my dose of the SSRI med (w/doctor's approval/therapy) but am not fully ready to kick it at this stage of the game, since some of my symptoms have returned. And, thank you for taking the time to answer my post. I am really confused about why I am "off track" all of a sudden.

                        Its interesting that just about 3wks in I started noticing the increase in sex drive. Dh is pleased. finding the time is quite a challenge w/2 under 3! I'm hoping as I become LS, I'll be able to wean off the Domperidone...

                        Dr K - AS you become more LS - do you need less food? just wondering b/c I'm noticing that I don't need as much protein in the AM to make it 5hrs.. Today I had bkfst around 730... I only had a 3egg omlete w/cheese and I'm just now sitting down for lunch at 130pm... Is this normal, the decrease in the need for the 50g?

                            Definitely many thanks on this. Without this, I'd probably not be getting my health back.

                                So would one have to follow your protocol for leptin reset for 12-18 months to achieve LS in order to reverse PCOS?

                                (I ask because I find out tomorrow if I have PCOS)
