I'm taking the ball Anand suggested and starting a leptin resistance thread. Especially because I have been on what should be a leptin sensitivity increasing diet for the last few days.
(My father finally died a week ago today, so for a number of weeks before hand I was eating whatever was convenient. Today is my parent's 66th wedding anniversay.)
I reviewed on line, um, reviews of The Rosedale Diet and Mastering Leptin books. The former tends run about WHAT you eat (cut the saturated fats, increase MUFA's) and the second more about HOW you eat, meaning at least 5 hours between 3 meals a day.
I've sort of combined the two. Lots of olive oil, some butter and CO, moderate protein, low carb. Mostly, just waiting between meals. I do miss that eatertainment, the flavor fun, but as to hunger, it's not there. And sometimes I'm honest with myself and postpone a meal.
I'm running 70-75% fats, 100-110 grams of protein (I have about 177 pounds LBM, so that's in line), and 30-ish grams of carbs. I'm eating a lot of salad as a low carb eatertainment, and good veggies, of course.
The psychologically noticable event is I look at things like the grapes and orange juice which were for my dad and I have zero interest in them. Or the carby foods out everywhere in the nursing home where my mother is. Zip-ola desire.
I also notice about fifteen minutes after eating a nice, fatty meal that my metabolism is jacked up. And yes, I've lost two pounds.
