When it comes to most health issues, the best thing you can do for yourself is examine your diet. Most people don't realize how much the food they eat truly affects their well-being. The same goes when it comes to leptin. You first want to take a good hard look at the food you've been consuming and see if you've gone overboard on carbohydrates, sugars and processed foods.
Managing your leptin levels starts with incorporating a mostly plant-based diet full of leafy greens, healthy carbohydrates, and generous amounts of protein. Minimizing your intake of carbohydrates and eliminating sugar is the best way to get your leptin resistance under control.
Interestingly, adding zinc to your diet is also beneficial. According to WikiHow's article on how to increase leptin, studies have shown that people who have leptin deficiencies often also have zinc deficiencies. Zinc deficiencies are also common in obese people. So of course, adding zinc to your diet is going to be important as well!
