<blockquote><font class="small">posted by strivetoachieve:</font><hr /> Thanks for being concerned, I am hard on myself thats the sort of person I am, I keep on pushing the limits till I get to my destination, but now in my way all these health problems have come, I do take a good multivitamin, vitamin C, antioxidant, and glutamine, I do vary my training, heavy/light and I guess the light weeks are my rest, but I know what you mean, I am due for a vacation, maybe in couple of months, thanks again for your compassion <hr /></blockquote>

<font color="purple"> Here's a little info that might help you:
In lean individuals, the issue is not leptin resistance, but low plasma concentrations of leptin. So lean folks have to induce their body fat into synthesizing and secreting enough leptin to reach the HT. Otherwise, neuropeptide Y (NPY) and other factors will upregulate and increase the appetite. In addition, dysfunctions appear in other metabolic shifts and body systems. The metabolism slows, immune functions are suppressed, and the reproduction axes are interrupted.

While leptin levels are highly associated with body fat mass, the more important determinant is energy balance. Long-term usage of a diet that is calorically deficient will cause leptin levels to decrease. One way, and ultimately the easiest way, to prevent this is to incorporate refeed days. Depending on what the current body fat mass is, a person can integrate a day or two of higher than maintenance calories with ample carbohydrates. Insulin has a transient up-regulation effect on leptin levels. A day or two of refeeding will increase leptin levels and ‘reset’ the metabolism. As well, assuring adequate zinc and vitamin E have been shown to increase leptin levels in humans.

This goes back to my mentioning in my earlier post about cycling your food intake. I do this myself and it makes a world of difference. I see changes in my physic every 2-3days.

I did try cyclying, it didn't work that great as even increase a bit of food (whether it was protein/carb or fat) made me very full and uneasy , so I discoverd this new way , I ate the same day in and out and as I was training hard, and building muscle my body needed more food to maintain it, hence I increased calories gradually, and it worked, if I go back to cyclying thats a yo-yo effect on me, as far as such low bf is concerned, genecially I am lean, I have a high metabolism naturally but a small frame and smaller stomach. I can lose and gain weight/muscle very fast.
How do you cycle??

I cycle 3days low with no starchy and one day high, only i just carb up in one meal. The very last meal at night rather than throughout the entire day.

Even now, with my new cutting cycle, i will be carbing up on Monday and Thursdays only.
I'll post my diet on my page.
I understand the concept of being naturally lean, but i feel we can still make some good changes if you are willing to give it a try.
Because you've basically trained your body to eat a certain way, introducing new foods may be a little difficult, but in the long run, more beneficial.

let me know what you think,
Margie
