I've been trying Kruse's technique for four days and so far so good! It's really difficult to eat breakfast early as I usually don't eat till I'm hungry (much later in the a.m. than 5 or 6 when I get up!). In fact, when I first wake up, it takes about a half hour before I can even convince myself to keep trying the big protein breakfast thing. But I'm not hungry at all until 5 or 6 hours later so have no desire to eat snacks between meals. I've been eating about 6-7 oz of steak and a bowl of hot flax cereal for the "breakfast". Haven't wanted/had any "snacks" at all for the 4 days. I decided to try this because the only change to the way I am already eating is the timing. (oh yeah..and the lack of snacking between meals!)

I am at day 3 and haven't lost any weight yet. I need to and hope I do, but my focus right now is to regulate my hunger and to cure binge eating.

LC did not heal me. I was at goal last year at this time and suddenly was starving and gained back 15 pounds. It was not just a desire to munch but more of a driven to eat feeling.

I'm sure, like insulin resistance, it has to be caught early enough. But I'm also sure that 166 lbs is not so grossly obese as to be too late. Have you had your thyroid tested? And I can't debate the fine points. I'm not a doctor. I've just read that low carb does this.

Jeaniem, I went through that driven to eat thing as well. I didn't know that could happen. I gained everything back plus more.

I'll read up on this.

I'm trying this because after 3-4 weeks on low carb, I'm suddenly hungry (physically hungry) all the time the past few days. Everything has been working fine otherwise for me with low carb and I eat a good amount of fat / protein and only real foods. I figured maybe leptin is an issue for me and this was worth trying.

I'm going to have to find a way to get more protein in less foods though because I have to force my way through breakfast in the morning. The quantity is huge and I'm used to just having a couple of eggs cooked in butter in the morning. Now I'm eating eggs plus meat and still only able to get to about 40-45 gms of protein.

It's working well though (day 3 now). I am barely hungry at lunch and have no desire to snack at all.

Quite frankly,I don't care if it is all quackery. Binging and overeating have ruled my life for far too long, so if something as simple as front loading my day with high protein foods stops snacking and carb binges I am in! I did start amour thyroid a couple of weeks ago.

Agree. Whether or not the plan reverses leptin resistance (or whether leptin resistance actually exists) may remain to be seen but the high protein in the a.m. does seem to remove the desire for between-meal eating. That may be important for long-term maintenance.

Thank you for starting this, Kerry.

I've been reading a lot about Dr. Kruse' protocol. I'm doing the big protein breakfast. I haven't seen a drastic drop in hunger yet but it's been a stressful week and TOM just arrived...To really tell if this is working I need to go VLC all day, not just at breakfast...

It may be my imagination but I think I'm sleeping better already...

I'll post an update in another week...

This is very interesting to me as well. I'm thinking of trying this out to curb my tendency to want to snack and graze, especially in the afternoon and at night. Still trying to work out how I can get 50g of protein into my breakfast though! I'm thinking it may work for me as well because I know that when I eat a lot of protein in the form of meats, I never have a desire to eat anything more for a long time afterwards.

I've been on the "reset" for nearly a week now and it's still working to prevent snacking urges. Cals are a lot higher and protein is much higher than usual. Fat is about the same (around 70%) and carbs very low as usual (less than 10..). I was concerned that the "leptin reset" might cause weight gain with those increases but so far I'm still losing. It is getting harder in the last couple of days to eat the big protein breakfast first thing in the morning, though!

It is getting harder for me to eat the big breakfast as well. I posted about it at *** and they suggested eating as much as you can and finishing the rest at lunch. I have done this and it doesn't work as well, it makes me feel hungrier throughout the day so a spoonful of coconut oil was suggested to stop the hunger.

2 scoops of most protein shakes are 52 grams of protein. About 7 carbs. A good way to get that 50 grams in at breakfast time!

Agreed--that would be simple...but Dr Kruse recommends against whey protein for weight loss as it raises blood glucose & insulin for many people. And he says no soy. I had to post 3 or 4 times before he would answer my question about what to use for a protein shake; he says he uses raw pastured eggs. I suppose egg white protein powder might be a good whey substitute; but again, he didn't answer when I asked him directly. :/

Only if you click on the link. That's so people will (I hope) only post menus, not questions about what the Reset is.

Have you read Mastering Leptin by Byron Richards? If so, what do you think of it?

Oh, didn't know that.

Is there a link to where it tells exactly what to do for the leptin reset and what it will do for you?

How are things going? I started the Mastering Leptin Diet today. I like this more because I have a book and more guidance. The only thing I did wrong today was I used splenda (out of habit) in my coffee. I am going to put the splenda away for a while and see if I can adapt to not using it.
