    Wow, 50 grams of protein is a lot. About 8 ounces of chicken. Are there restriction on the other two meals in terms of intake or just the low carbs?

    50g isn't hard to get in though. A decent omelette has 70g protein (5 eggs, some pastured cheese, throw down some ham). Even if you use a good quality protein powder and add in some egg whites to whip it fluffy, that's easily 50g too.
    You just have to be creative.

    I myself am LOVING the 50 gram breakfasts! because I am always extremely hungry in the morning! For the first time ever, I can make it til lunch without being hungry or snacky! I have lost a little over 3 lbs in the last 5 days after switching from Atkins, where I was stalled.

    ive been doing the reset now for 4 weeks and i believe it is working for me. as of this week i can answer yes to all of dr kruse protocol questions. i have absolutely zero carb cravings and i have complete control of my appetite.

    the thing about this is once you begin the reset you will notice lunch and dinner you arent as hungry. the big breakfast really makes a difference. 50 grams of protein sounds like a lot but its really not that bad, 4 eggs and some sausage and you are there

    couple things to remember that i think are very important, 1 no carbs at breakfast, 2 the lower the carbs through out the day the better, i average about 25g, 3 no snacking between meals and especially after dinner, 4 no fruit! and lastly 5 get plenty of sleep

    if you are at all curious give it a try for a few weeks and see how it goes

    Yep, about the same here.

    I just do enough eggs for breakfast that I am not hungry until lunch, and no carbs. Right now 3 eggs are plenty, and I munch a few walnuts while cooking the eggs. I was mixing in 1/4-1/2 avocado or some shredded cheese, but I cut that out because it was too much food.

    I have tried a few carbs now and then later in the day but I always wish I didn't.

    I think I may actually need to do this.
    So starting Saturday I will be doing this from Saturday for 8 weeks to see.
    Umm anyone have any reason why my veins are starting to hurt? What the hell...
    I think it could be the freaking grapes and grapefruit I have had over the past 4 days... that could explain the reason why I am in such pain.
    Going to be sticking to nothing but spinach.... ffs.

    Hmm. I checked out the questions he asks and I'm really surprised that I'm probably not leptin resistant.

    I'm wondering if anyone has had the experience of following Dr Kruse's paleo/leptin rules to re-establish leptin sensitivity and still not have it happen?

    In my case, I've eaten paleo for a number of years and strictly JR paleo for 3 months and have found no appreciable results from it in that my weight continues to increase regardless.

    I've also tried many other "leptin resistance" cures, mostly junk science bollocks, such as:

    1. Byetta & Symlin - no weight loss but managed to maintain a lower set-point weight
    2. Irvingia Gabonensis - no weight loss but managed to maintain a higher set-point weight
    3. Tonlin CLA - no weight loss, no weight maintenance, I think it made me worse
    4. Megadose Vitamin D - no weight loss, no weight maintenance
    5. Megadose Salmon Oil - no weight loss, no weight maintenance
    6. HCG Injections - no weight loss, no weight maintenance
    7. All Protein, No Carbs - disastrous, on about 700 cals per day gained .5lb every day
    8. Coconut Oil - oh my god, 2lbs per day for the 6 days I took it until I stopped

    My rT3 remains excessively high, the highest my endo has ever consistently seen, and the only way I can hold onto a reasonable weight or lose weight is to water fast for 2-5 days per week. Crazy I know but even eating paleo puts weight on me at an alarming rate.

    I've never been a junk food eater, have always preferred a ketogenic way of eating and until 8 years ago, I was always skinny.

    Obviously, something is drastically wrong with my metabolism. I'd be most interested in hearing from anyone who is going through a similar problem or has had periods of extreme weight gain for no obvious reason.

    I like this forum. BTW. Makes me feel I'm not alone out there!!! At last, people who understand "it" has nothing to do with less-calories-more-exercise.
    If your hormones or cortisol is out of whack it can take longer to reset - which is why Dr Kruse pushes getting labs done - so you can pinpoint what's going on...

    I'm starting week 13 of the reset - haven't seen a lot of weight loss - but I can check off all of DrK's questions for LS. But I have a cortisol problem...and I'm working on it... if you don't have labs and you have other issue - it can take longer to reach the reset... I will continue to eat the Leptin Reset protocol for the rest of my life - its done so much for me....

    Hi Shijin. Agreed, I'll eat like this forever. I prefer it to eating any other way. I had a mouthful of apple pie about 6 weeks ago and felt nauseous all the next day. Enough to make me realise that I just no longer want anything like that kind of food, not that I ate much of it before.

    I have a bunch of auto-immune problems - Hashimotos, coelliacs, diabetes 2, lupus, MS - so have blood tests done pretty regularly. I have blood taken every 3 months and my rT3 is always highhigh and serum leptin levels are somewhere between 70 and 95 (normal in Australia is about 15). My cortisol levels have never been high. I take lots of compounded drugs - T3, DHEA, pregnenolone, progesterone cream, estrogen - and stacks of JR recommended supplements, especially the oils, and whilst I'm healthier than ever, the weight gain remains a chronic problem.

    I've been searching for why for 8 years now. It's great being here because here people get "it". The info, and the support, is incredibly good.

    Thus, our data challenge the current concept that prolonged leptin exposure due to hyperleptinemia is the initiative and underlying factor for development of leptin resistance in obese mice. This line of thinking favors the fact that increased adiposity and consequent hyperleptinemia decreases the leptin action and creates the leptin resistance. Our data raise the possibility that increased UPR signaling even before the onset of adiposity and hyperleptinemia might be creating leptin resistance, and it might be the underlying reason for development of leptin resistance, since the leptin levels of XNKO mice severely increase at the early phases of HFD feeding, which are not proportional to the body weight. It should be also noted that leptin levels reach to extremely high levels in XNKO mice during the late phases of HFD feeding.

    Interesting article. Bascically saying that dysfunction in the endoplasmic reticulum of the cell is the root cause of LR and, to date, no way to reverse that exists. They also postulate that ER stress can come from many things including damage to the ER by environmental and biological factors.

    I've maintained that my chronic weight gain problems started with a weird virus thingy I had in 2002. I went from being skinny and not able to put on weight to a weight-gaining machine over a 6 month period in that year. It may also explain why every leptin sensitizing regime I've tried has failed.

    There doesn't appear to be a ER stabilising approach yet! Oh great!!!!
