Elizabeth Walling’s The Nourished Life more or less on the topic of leptin resistance. Please check that out. It’s a good one.
As somewhat of a follow-up to that post, I did a video on leptin resistance and obesity – basically stating that obesity, from a functional/hormonal standpoint, is starvation in every respect. Definitely worth taking a peek.
Next in the lineup is a little fun. Lately, as many of you are aware, there has been a huge titanic battle going on between Anthony Colpo and Michael Eades (here’s a taste of that) – some of the louder voices in the health and nutrition internet scene. In this video, I play knucklehead referee, suggesting that low-carb diets can slow down your metabolism (hardly a metabolic advantage – which was the focus of the dispute), and that Colpo’s book should be called The Fat Gain Bible. Crap, I can’t make any friends. I’ll take some heat over this one fo’ sho’.
#3 in the video lineup is an important video showing the link between inflammation and obesity. Inflammation triggers the release of a leptin-resistance inducing protein called SOCS3, as well as cortisol which has similar consequences. A low omega 6 diet is certain to help improve this metabolic downward spiral.
Last but not least is the latest 180 Kitchen post. It’s still Filet Mignon March, and today’s installment is a buttery, velvety, silky smooth lil’ taste of heaven. Beef Tartare. God I love it!
