Extreme Hunger in Eating Disorder Recovery | LEPTIN RESISTANCE


hey guys I hope you’re all doing well in
this video I’m talking about leptin resistance and dieting are you suffering
from uncontrollable hunger and appetite as if you could eat massive amounts of
food and never feel satisfied this is exactly what happens after a period of
dieting a history of an eating disorder or even after a long period of over
exercising and the reason for it is because of two significant hormones the
hormone leptin and the hormone cortisol now let’s begin with a hormone leptin
leptin is a hormone produced in the fat stores of our body it’s job is to signal
our brain when we are Fault triggering us to stop eating
leptin also supports our metabolism is working efficiently and leptin travels
through our blood via our circularity system to the appetite center of our
brain and there it beans to receptors that are responsible for making us feel
hungry and this helps tamp down our appetite curving our desire to eat
leptin also travels through our nervous system stimulating fatty tissue to burn
off fat and calories and if too much left hand builds up in our body we may
develop leptin resistance and when this occurs the leptin in our body may not do
its job effectively resulting in weight gain and uncontrollable hunger so now
the problem with dieting is once we start restricting our calories or cut
out specific food groups especially as it is a compulsory factor in low carb
diets to minimize our carbohydrates our leptin level drops and the longer we
stay on the diet the more probably we develop leptin resistance the thing
with leptin resistance is that it is very hard to reverse it and it usually
takes quite a long time to repair our hormones again and so when we stop
dieting and start eating more calories our hunger signals are completely out of
whack since our leptin is not able to work properly which leads us to
uncontrollable binges and weight gain after dieting so this was the video for
today about one of the most important hormones that influences our hunger and
weight I am also planning to do a video about
how to reverse leptin resistance and how you can boost rebuilding your leptin
hormones and in my next videos I am also going to talk about the second important
hormone cortisol that is influencing our weight and hunger tremendously so if

  1. Hi guys 🙂
    I did this video, especially because it helped me in my past to understand that it was normal to eat crazy amounts of food. I probably ate 10.000 calories several times per day and I thought I'd be running into the next eating disorder (=food addiction). I felt so abnormal and always thought I had to stop this. These thoughts disturbed my recovery process and let me to several relapses. But from the day I got to know the science behind what I was doing and that this was such a normal, biological process, I could let go off all the doubt and I accepted the hunger which helped my progress of recovery tremendously.
    I know that professionals and doctors can say the opposite because most of them don't have an endocrinological (=the science of hormones) and psychological education. For this reason, I want you to know that there is proven reason for extreme hunger after dieting, eating disorder or over exercising. So please inform yourself and don't believe in everything what professionals say. I hope this video was helpful. If you have any questions, please write them down in the comment section below and give me a thumps up if you like the video.
    Take care xoxo

  2. Hi,Christina.I have a question.my dr did some blood work and he tested my leptin levels and he said they were high and I am overweight,actually,obese.I have always had issues with food but was never anywhere near overweight or obese.The last ten years I have gained a lot whole dieting and exercising.Thats the quick story. Lol.Dr looks at me like I'm crazy when I told him I have been a restrictor. He tells me I need to lose weight and to thinks I'm just eating too much. Part of my question is because my leptin is high while trying to recover and I am almost embarrassed to say recover,like ,since I am obese I cant possibly have a restrictive eating disorder.But,is it normal.to have high leptin levels at this point? I AM 6 months into minnie Maud method. THIS Makes me feel like I am fooling myself and everybody assumes I stuff my face because I'm heavy.its such a mind game.So,leptin resistance makes me.feel I am doing everything wrong and I'm very confused.I hope you can shed some light on this.thank you.If my leptin is high I cant trust my hunger signals.Not sure how to handle this?One more thing I have to work hard to get in the minimum of 2500 calories a day most days.So,I'm not having times of extreme hunger. Somedays ,I notice I am hungrier and I'll est more for sjre, but when adding those calories up it can be a little over 3000.Its so hard that I started this process already way overweight. 🙄
