The role of leptin for weight loss?
minad82 posted:
Hi everyone!

I'm trying to lose weight again. But is my approach wrong? I try to eat less than what I burn, but then I read about leptin today (when I read about the venus factor here ). Is really leptin that important? Is this why I don't lose weight? I try to work out 5 times a week. I've tried low-carb earlier, is this bad for leptin?

Hope someone can answer me, I don't want to start over at the "wrong" approcah.

Hey mina, I would suggest you to exercise regularly and have low fats food. Have lot of fruits and drink plenty of water. These ways are sufficient to lose weight safely and efficiently.
