Leptin is a hormone that can help you feel full quickly, cutting down your food intake and helping you lose weight. Sadly, this mechanism is impaired in most obese people, who have a leptin resistance. Cut down on sugar, quit alcohol, have protein with each meal, try turmeric, green tea, and oily fish, and exercise regularly to tackle leptin resistance. Also sleep for 7–9 hours to improve leptin levels.
If you're gaining fat despite all measures, check whether your body has low levels of thyroid hormones. This can slow down your overall metabolism. Also check if you have too much insulin or an imbalance in estrogen and testosterone levels. This could make you store glucose as fat. Plus, high cortisol or leptin levels can make you overeat. Avoid refined foods and exercise well to use up glucose better.
