Ask The Low-Carb Experts (Episode 2): ‘All Things Leptin (Leptin 101)’ | Dr. Ron Rosedale


NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 2 of “Jimmy Moore Presents: Ask The Low-Carb Experts,” we continue bring you the very best experts on issues that concern the low-carb community with a focus on “All Things Leptin (Leptin 101)” featuring one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject in Dr. Ron Rosedale. He is the author of The Rosedale Diet where he outlines the role of this “master hormone” in basically every metabolic function in the body. Dr. Rosedale is an internationally-known expert in nutritional and metabolic medicine whose work with diabetics is truly groundbreaking. Through his work, he has helped literally thousands of patients suffering from so-called incurable diseases to regain their health. One of Dr. Rosedale’s life goals is to wipe out Type II diabetes in this country as a model for the world. Dr. Rosedale has helped set up health retreats in India so that his knowledge could be shared with others who are less fortunate. His specific research interests include diabetes and the aging process, the correlation between diet and the aging process, and leptin, insulin, and the quality of metabolism. He has been studying and talking about the role of the hormone leptin for nearly two decades and is more than qualified to address this very important issue for people interested in health and weight loss in their low-carb lifestyle. From comparing Dr. Rosedale’s plan with the “Leptin Rx” promoted by Dr. Jack Kruse to the impact of leptin resistance on various areas of health like PCOS, we fully addressed this topic featuring e-mailed questions as well as LIVE callers who participated in EPISODE 2 on January 19, 2012.
