Anorexia, Hypoglycemia, and Leptin connected?
Could a battle with anorexia a few years ago, lifelong hypoglycemia, 3 years in a very sedentary job, and a very stressful living situation for the past 4 years have ruined my metabolism? I am looking to lose about 30lbs. I have been primal for over 2 years, eating less than 100 grams of carbs daily. I track every calorie in myfitnesspal, and I have to admit I spend many hours a week reading about what the 'perfect' diet should be. I have been reading about leptin and I don't know if I am resistant or not. I never really feel hungry, I just know I am hungry when I feel the typical low blood sugar symptoms ie dizzy, mental fog, depressed, etc. I still have a really hard eating enough, I feel sick when I eat what I feel is "too much" I feel like I should be losing weight, but I really haven't. Should I try a leptin reset? I know asking this question usually starts a battle on these message boards, but I just need some direction.
