Leapin’ Leptin

Here’s a useful new research finding: Calories from saturated fats don’t raise leptin levels as much as calories from other foods. Leptin is the hormone that makes you feel full and satisfied, so you want the foods you eat to release more, not less.

Alcohol also tends not to release it.

Interesting! This is one more reason to lay off the cheeseburgers and fries.
