Leptin is a very important hormone produced in your fat cells. It is responsible for many things, including telling your brain when you are full, triggering the feeling that you need to stop eating. If you have too much leptin, your sensitivity to it can decrease, and that leads to more hunger and cravings, and eventually obesity.
 Are There Any Leptin Rich Foods?
 Leptin can%u2019t be given orally, because our intestines can%u2019t process it. In addition, it can%u2019t actually be found in foods. Though you might hear about %u201Cleptin rich foods,%u201D it is important to remember that these foods aren%u2019t actually filled with leptin %u2013 though they do make a difference.
 So how do we increase it? We can%u2019t %u2013 but we can increase our sensitivity to it. That means that it will work as it should, even if we don%u2019t have quite enough in our bodies. These foods can help increase the sensitivity, and that means that our metabolism can go up, cravings can go down, and our battle of the bulge can be helped along.
 Foods That Increase Leptin Sensitivity
 To get a good start on your leptin sensitivity, have protein with breakfast. This helps jump-start the leptin signals and can keep you full longer during the day. You should also go for leafy greens and fiber-rich foods, as they can also help keep your body feeling full. These foods spark the sensitivity that your body needs in order to respond appropriately to leptin. For even more regulation of that sensitivity, be sure to get a good allotment of fish in your diet.
 Foods That Decrease Leptin Sensitivity
 Just as there are great foods for increasing the sensitivity to leptin, there are also foods that will inhibit your body%u2019s signals. Avoid these foods if you can, or have them in moderation. One of the biggest problems is carbohydrates. These include starches, like white flour and potatoes. Excessive carbohydrates are not only terrible about blocking the leptin signals; they are also what we reach for when we are really craving something. The more carbohydrates we eat, the more the craving happens. It%u2019s a vicious cycle!
 You should also avoid foods that are processed or contain high fructose corn syrup. The syrup and the chemicals in processing have been shown to block much of what the body is trying to do, including the leptin sensitivity that tells your brain to turn off the hunger signals. If you eat large meals or eat very frequently, you are also sabotaging your body%u2019s attempts to fight off obesity. Try to eat in moderation, and keep the snacks to a minimum.

Again, it%u2019s about what%u2019s normal for you. As a rule of thumb, three bowel movements per day to three per week are considered normal. There are many things that can temporarily influence the frequency of your bowel movements and are not a cause for concern. Diet, travel, medications, hormonal fluctuations, sleep patterns, exercise, illness, surgery, childbirth, stress, are just some of the factors that can set you back. You also need to observe the strain you need to push your poop out %u2013 defecating should be as easy as urinating or passing gas. Excessive effort can signal that something isn%u2019t right. Some Things You Can Do To Help You Move Your Bowels %u2022Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Make sure you get enough fresh fruits and vegetables, which are the best sources of fiber. To boost your fiber intake, you can also add psyllium and freshly ground organic flax seed to your diet. %u2022Avoid processed foods, and foods that contain a lot of sugar (especially artificial sweeteners) and chemical additives. %u2022Keep a balanced gut flora by enjoying probiotic products, such as sauerkrauts, pickles.  Be especially careful to replenish your beneficial gut bacteria after a course of antibiotics. If probiotic food doesn%u2019t do it for you, get a good probiotic supplement. %u2022Drink lots of water and stay hydrated. %u2022Exercise daily
