I'm brand new to this site. I'll be 54 in a couple of weeks. I've just made the decision to stop gaining weight and make healthier decisions. I'm an emotional eater who typically, more often than not, eats on the run. I've been prioritizing my work over self-care. And I've been extremely sedentary. I was in the 150s during the majority of the last 10 years, but have crept up to 177 in the past year. I'm disgusted with the state of my health and I'm making some changes. I don't smoke. I rarely drink... a half of a glass of wine every couple of months. I'm determined to spend at least 1 hour of my day, total, to moving my body in some form or fashion via an exercise that will elevate my heart rate and strengthen my body. I'm determined to eat less- or unprocessed whole foods. I'm determined to keep my body hydrated better than I have in the past. I'm on day one, so I'll let you know how it goes. The reason I blurted all of this out in this message board in particular is that I've also decided to try Leptiburn. Who knows if it works or not. But listening to the sales pitch and the ingredients makes perfect sense to me. So I'm going to try it. Wish me luck! I'll come back and let you know my status in a week or so.
My chiro says there are no supplements that help form leptin. Your body already does it. It is the choices that people make that causes the body to make too much.

If there were truly an over the counter supplement that helped significantly with weight loss, it would be on the cover of every magazine, be patented by a pharmaceutical company and we'd all be taking it. This particular one sounds like every other fly-by-night fat burning supplement company on the market. It's a very pricey one, too. I'm willing to bet that the only thing this sucker will make lighter is your wallet.
Do not fall for the very attractive marketing ploys these supplement manufacturers pull. There is nothing new about this, and it won't do anything the other over the counter "fat burners" don't. Don't try to find a shortcut. There isn't one; if there was, it would be on every magazine known to man, and every major news outlet there is. The only thing I can say about this one is that even Dr. Oz hasn't picked up on it, and if there was even so much as a shred of evidence it might work, he'd be all over it. They also appear to be exceptional at SEO manipulation. If they were legit, they wouldn't need to do that.
Talk to your doctor before taking *any* supplements, over the counter or otherwise. If you believe you have leptin resistance, you need to be talking to an endocrinologist, not a supplement hawker. Remember that those videos are *designed* to be appealing, and have been carefully crafted to trigger every "I want that" receptor you have. They know what they're doing, and they're manipulating.

Heather Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
