    This is also my stance. A certain practice by a culture or even by our Paleolithic ancestors does not necessarily open the door for its adoption in our own lives.

      Leptin controls food intake and energy expenditure by acting on receptors in the mediobasal hypothalamus.


      If those receptors lose their sensitivity you have leptin resistance. If inflammation is the cause of the receptors losing their sensitivity then you have a solid argument that anti-inflammatory diet and exercise would be natural steps to take to reverse or prevent leptin resistance.


      Does it make sense that all or many receptors in our body lose their sensitivity due to inflammatory conditions and if so would they not regain some or all sensitivity by removing that inflammatory condition?
