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.
