    Leptin resistance - that much protein? how?

    Primal Fuel
    i just tryed today to eat the 50 gramms of protein for breakfast how do people get that much in?

    i would say iam a quite hungry person, especially in the morning and i love meat. i had some horse meat with leeks and a mini banana in butter *yummi* and one hard boiled egg. this is around 40 gr. of protein, and i could not even finish the meat. left out meat worth of at least 10 gr. of protein, so probably had around 30gr.

    I'm on the reset too, but I've never been able To eat a full 50 gr. I think I do about 40 and that keeps me full for about 6 hours. It's really hard to eat that much for breakfast!

    @Bettie, drop the leeks and banana. You don't really want to eat any carbs whatsoever at breakfast. Also when you cook your meat, you want to use coconut oil.

    Horse? Where did you get that? All the slaughter houses where shut down by the crazy bug and bunny counters...

    I totally understand where you are coming form though, its alot of protein. 4 eggs is just 24 grams! I think a flat 50 grams for everyone is a blanket statement - maybe that will work for men and mesomorphs but should be adjusted based on individual tolerance.

    Might be best to just ensure that the majority of your breakfast is protein and call it a day. Leaner protein should help also.

    Geostump - Per Protein Power, breakfast is the best time to have carbs as your body is more insulin sensitive in the morning. I also really don't see anything wrong with leeks of all things.

    You can get horse meat easily in most countries and in some parts of the US.

    Check out - Jack Kruse and the leptin reset thread in the Nutrition forum. With the reset, you must eat 50g of protein for breakfast with little to no carbs. You're allowed as much carbs as 50g total for a day but should ideally keep it under 30. The idea of eating 50g of protein within 30 minutes of waking is this: It keeps you from wanting to snack in between meals and gorging on sugar and starches. You also want to space lunch minimally 5 hours after breakfast and dinner 5 hours after lunch but eat dinner 3 hours before bed. Leptin is the master hormone and if you have issues such as being insulin resistant, PCOS, hashimoto's and other autoimmune disorders you want to fix leptin first as all the other hormones that are out of whack will fall in line. If you are making yourself become leptin sensitive you will then become more insulin sensitive which is what we all want.

    I should know. I am IR and PCOS. I have pretty much cleared up the majority of my PCOS symptoms and my IR. Before the reset and while I was following primal, my average fasting blood glucose levels were around 120, they are now 104 which is fairly normal or close to normal.

    Make yourself a 6 egg steak omelette.
    Bam! 50g protein.

    if you have meat at dinner, save some for breakfast.

    50g protein is easy.

    Protein Power is a good book, but this is about the 6-8 week leptin reset, which starts out the day with 50g protein and minimal carbs.

    The 50g protein is a good target. Obviously if you do that and you still fill full at 2 pm and think you did too much breakfast, adjust it a bit. The world won't come to an end.

    thanks for your answers!

    the breakfast today was more of a brunch, i normally don't cook veg and fruits in the morning!

    well i will try to go as near as possible to the 50gr. maybe i have to work my way upů will have a proteinshake + some meat or eggs.


    geostump, i have pcos myself, good to hear that the leptin reset helped you with that. oh and i do use coconut oil a lots but i like butter too. i get a really fresh raw butter from a farmer, its so delicious!

    ragout, horse you get here (switzerland) everywhere, i love it! but when i was in the u.k. i felt bad to even talk about eating horses, the english love them too much i guess :-)

    Dr. Bork, i think a 6 egg steak omlette in the morning and i would feel sick all day. i can't really eat that much in one meal, especially not eggs. even my 150gr. horse steak had only 30gr. no way to eat 1,5 of them!

    count me as one of those who get the willies at the thought of eating horse. I don't know why b/c i'm not really a "horse-y" person at all, actually i'm somewhat intimidated by them having tried to ride one a long time ago, but i just couldn't really knowingly enjoy eating horsemeat. It would have to be a survival type circumstance. Horses just look too noble or something for me to consider them as food. Even tho realistically, they're just meat bags like everything else.
