If Fat Loss Is Your Goal, Make Friends With Your Leptin Level

What’s almost as good as an outdoor alpine climb for losing weight?

How about omega-3’s?

I read that due to factors such as chronic stress, age-related hormonal fluctuations, and exposure to environmental toxins, 65% of American women have low levels of the appetite-suppressing hormone leptin.

That’s a lot of women!

It’s relatively easy to correct.

Just consume more omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats elevate leptin levels and increase the body’s sensitivity to it. Consume three daily servings of omega-3 rich foods like salmon, tuna, sardines, walnuts, chia seeds and flaxseed oil.

Keeping your leptin levels in a healthy fat burning range is important whether you’re losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight.
