If these three hormones are not balanced, your fat loss will grind to a halt.
What are these 3 hormones?
Insulin, leptin and cortisol.
And if you're having a tough time losing fat, this could be absolutely be the reason why.
Because when these 3 hormones are out of balance, your body is simply not interested in burning fat.
You hit a plateau and you get stuck.
With that in mind, I want to introduce you to a good friend of mine by the name of Jayson Hunter. I've known Jayson for a long time (about 8 years now)...he's one of the smartest guys I know when it comes to nutrition.
In fact, I've been lucky enough to beta test a few of his supplement formulations over the years (one of them gave me some amazing results in strength and performance).
Jayson recently turned his attention to the solving the riddle of these 3 hormones with the goal of helping you UNLOCK your fat cells and blast through the fat-loss plateaus they cause.
And what he came up with was something called "Leptisense." He sent me a bottle of it to try out.
And I'll be honest with you, while I HAVE tried it out, I'm actually NOT the best candidate for truly testing it to see how it works.
1. I don't have a whole lot of stress that I face every day.
This product is more targeted for people who are regularly stressed and who have to deal with the near-constant surges of cortisol that result from it. The ingredients help your body physically deal with cortisol and stress to help "settle" your body into a state where fat-burning is more efficient.
If YOU deal with a lot of stress on a dailly basis, this stuff is going to help you a lot.
2. I don't carry a lot of extra bodyfat.
Right now, I'm about 10% bodyfat. My hormones are pretty well in balance, so a supplement that works by balancing hormones is not going to have a big effect on me.
If you're carrying some extra fat, however, Leptisense is for you. If you're already lean and trying to get ripped, this is not for you. You're likely in the same boat as me where you're pretty well balanced.
3. My insulin levels are stable.
I currently eat low-carb most of the time (I cycle through low-carb, low-fat and fasting days). My insulin levels are pretty well regulated. And since I work from home, I can eat what I want, when I want. There are never any office birthday cakes to throw me off.
My wife always tells me she's jealous of my "on/off" switch. When I go on a diet, I flip that switch and I can pretty much shut off all cravings and just eat what I set for myself to eat.
I know that's not normal.
If YOU find that, after a long, stressful day, you automatically go to "comfort foods," you'll do well with Leptisense.
The bottom line is this...
If you've been stuck in a fat-loss rut and you're not sure what you can do about it, this could be a good solution for you. It's not going to do the work for you, but it's going to help.
It'll be especially beneficial for you if you have a stressful life, have some extra fat to lose or find you tend to give in to cravings fairly readily. And it is NON-stimulant.
Is it going to allow you to eat whatever you want and still lose fat?
Nope...that's not how it works.
It is going to allow you to lose fat without exercise?
Actually...to some degree, yes, it might. When your hormones are out of balance, your body's processes for using bodyfat for energy is impaired. When those processes are not impaired, your body can go back to using stored bodyfat for energy efficiently, as it should.
More of those calories that you're already burning just by being alive and functioning can come from your bodyfat now, instead of the food you eat.
Naturally, a caloric deficit is still necessary to lose weight...this just helps you to dip into your on-board storage tanks more effectively.
