The whole Leptin thing has kinda blown up around here - with a lot of forum members attempting leptin sensitivity resets. Lots of good discussion in at least 4 different folders.
Given Leptin resistance as a precursor to insulin resistance, any chance you might revisit the research and do a *definitive* post on Leptin / Leptin Sensitivity, particularly as it applies to Primal?
Yes, Please! A Leptin Definitive Would Be Most Great!
Who are you wanting to do this? Or do you mean you want to do this?
Another yes vote. I'm just not going to wade through all the technical stuff I've been seeing.

Hrm. [I]Mark's Daily Apple Blog Post Topics[/I]. I guess I was hoping Mark would do it. His blog and all. I'm certainly not qualified (nor do I have access as a contributing author).
He did some leptin posts a couple of years ago but he hasn't yet done a Definitive Leptin post and if Leptin really is the Master Hormone as is being suggested by some then it might be worthwhile to add it in.
Particularly, given how structured Dr. Kruse's reset and the Mastering Leptin diet are in regards to amount of protein in the AM and the fairly strict timing of everything, I'd like to see how it all fits in with the Primal Blueprint approach, which is much more mellow and loose - a "listen to your body/eat when you're hungry" kind of approach.
Thing is, telling a person with a broken metabolism to "listen to your body" is a bit like offering the same advice to a drug addict. The body is sending the wrong signals (or interpreting the right signals incorrectly) and listening to it could well prove disastrous. Listening to [I]what my body wanted[/I] got me into this 300 lb mess in the first place.
And for all the PB is more relaxed and intuitive than strict and rigid, I've heard Mark caution people at the outset on things like IF (I believe he recommends being firmly primal for at least three weeks before attempting it). So, while I believe PB works best as an intuitive approach to life, I do think a bit of rigidity is in order at times - especially in the beginning - and I'd love to see Mark's take on that.
I'd like to see Mark put leptin into Primal perspective, if you will.
[B]ETA -[/B] Anyone got Mark's personal number and can point him to this thread?

Want to. Can't afford it at the moment. Mostly what I wanted by posting this here was for Mark to put the whole Leptin thing (and the recommendations of Richards and Kruse) into Primal perspective for us and weigh in with his own opinions/recommendations regarding leptin sensitivity - getting and keeping it under control.
[B]ETA -[/B] I have watched some of his talks and I appreciate the link.
