I've read that Kruse advises those who are leptin-resistant not to IF; but then he simultaneously gives the advice, "only eat when you're hungry"... Assuming that a person IFs only when they aren't hungry (at least for most of the fast), I don't see how these 2 pieces of advice from him are consistent with each other.Does IF help with leptin resistance?
Here are Dr. Kruse's leptin reset rules for meal timing:
MY LEPTIN PRESCRIPTION | Jack Kruse
A. Never snack at all. This is meant initially and forever. Snacking completely stresses the liver’s metabolism and is just not recommended. Your liver needs to re-learn how to use gluconeogenesis normally again when you are asleep and awake. Snacking just destroys the timing and circadian clocks that work in unison with Leptin.
B. Try to eat three meals a day initially; but as your hunger and cravings fade you can adapt to two a day.
C. Try to eat breakfast as early as possible from rising.
D. Do not work out before or after breakfast.
E. Try to allow 4-5 hours between dinners and sleep time.
