Byron Richards Offers Weight Loss Update About Prenatal Programming of ObesityWednesday, August 29, 2007 - Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist
Minneapolis, MN, August 29, 2007—A new study confirms a growing body of information that the health of the mother during pregnancy has a profound affect on the potential for future obesity. In the new study it was shown that high blood sugar during pregnancy doubles the risk for obesity between ages 5-7.
Women entering pregnancy in an overweight condition and/or who eat poorly during pregnancy are at risk for this problem as well as multiple other pregnancy issues. The underlying problem is the failure to eat in harmony with the hormone leptin. Leptin levels rise dramatically during pregnancy because leptin helps store extra fat to feed the child during nursing as well as being the hormone that enables the proper growth of the placenta. If a woman has leptin problems before entering pregnancy she is much more likely to have pregnancy complications, including high blood sugar.
Changing the obesity epidemic in our society starts with the health of the mother. “The Leptin Diet” is the only book that explains how to eat in harmony with leptin, vital information for any woman of childbearing years.

“Mastering Leptin” by Byron J. Richards is truly revolutionary as it is the first book to describe the meaning of thousands and thousands of scientific studies on the topic of this very important hormone, often described as the King of Hormones, and why every human being “must know about it and its role and even outcome in their overall health. Everyone has an owner’s manual for their car, now they have one for their body.”
