The Leptin Diet, consistent exercise, a healthy lifestyle, and stress management skills are the foundation for successful weight loss. In many cases dietary supplements can be used to augment various metabolic problems that otherwise slow or impede progress. These can be used as “tools” to help keep your energy up, cravings at bay, hormones working better, and metabolism engaged properly in calorie burning. Dietary supplements make progress easier for most and are quite helpful for getting started, staying on track, or breaking through a weight-loss plateau.*
The following is a list of the typical challenges you are most likely to encounter while trying to lose weight, along with the most common reason for the problem and the basic solution that usually helps.
Some people have many of these issues. If so, focus on the two or three areas that are the most troubling to you. As you eat in harmony with leptin and make progress on your overall weight loss program many of these problems will simply go away as your metabolism naturally improves.
Be alert to any of these issues cropping up as you move along in your weight loss effort. Besides not following the five rules of the Leptin Diet, these are the most common reasons your progress will slow or stop.
Lack of energy, heavy head, too sluggish, or afternoon power outage.
Can’t go five hours without eating.
Can’t get started in the morning, must eat something else by mid morning, crave salt or fat.
Not losing weight.

Stress sets off eating urges.
Unstable blood sugar feelings after 2-3 hours of a meal (jittery, headachey, irritable).
