Leptin is known as the satiety hormone. Basically, when we eat, leptin levels increase and signal our brains to feel full or satiated so we stop eating. When we don’t eat, leptin levels are low and signal the brain to have cravings and hunger pangs so we eat.
But due to processed foods, hormones injected into our food supply, and sugar being added to nearly every food we consume, leptin stops signaling the brain. This condition is known as “leptin resistance”. Essentially, the brain can’t detect leptin properly so it thinks your body is starving and in need of energy.
This causes three things to occur that doom any diet to failure:
- The frequency and intensity of cravings increase to make us hungry and ingest calories
- We need to eat more to feel satiated and artificially increase caloric intake
- Our metabolism slows to conserve energy
Researchers believe leptin resistance is the leading cause of obesity and one of the biggest reasons why diets fail. Essentially, you are fighting your own body because your brain thinks you are starving. So, even if you do cut caloric intake and exercise more, the metabolism still slows to adjust to the lower caloric intake. Until you reverse leptin resistance, eliminating fat and losing weight is nearly impossible.
You can reverese leptin resistance naturally but it takes months and you’ll be fighting intense cravings and a slower metabolism the entire time. Tetrogen is specially formulated to help reverse leptin resistance in 2-6 weeks. When leptin resistance is reversed, your cravings will disappear, portion sizes will decrease, and energy levels will increase making it much easier to eliminate fat and keep it off. In other words, Tetrogen helps address the underlying problem and make it easier to transition to the 80/20 Rule and healthier lifestyle for long term weight loss success.
