I dedicated today to researching leptin, and I am yet to find an answer to my question:
If low carb dieters are so low on the hormone leptin, thus inhibiting fat loss, then how do low carb tribes such as the Eskimos get along just fine? Or how did the primal ancestors get along just fine?
On top of that question:
Is sugar the only contributing factor to cause fat cells to produce leptin?
Any links, books, whatever... will help. Im tackling leptin this weekend. I also asked Mark to do a piece on it, so hopefully that comes through.
