Lyme Disease & weight gain :/

Recently, through loads of research … We have read that the bacteria, Borrelia in Lyme Disease can damage a body’s Leptin receptors. In order to lose weight our bodies must to be “Leptin Sensitive” or they will just keep storing fat.
Leptin is a hormone produced in the body’s fat cells that tell the brain how much fat is stored. If you are overweight your Leptin should notify the hypothalamus and I hunger should cease and metabolism rev up. If you are underweight, hunger should increase and metabolism slow down.
For a person is overweight however, and still suffering a large appetite – especially craving carbs at night, these are signs your body has become “Leptin Resistant.” It’s just not getting the right message. 
How to reset: studies show changing eating patterns and proportions will reset leptin receptors. *No need to count calories. Just stick to some simple food lists, eat at certain times and count your grams 👍🏼👍🏼 A food App may help with this.
Here goes: *Eat as soon as possible when you wake up in the morning. Within 30 minutes is best. *Breakfast should be 25 grams or less of veggies, fruit and any complex carb! *50-75 grams of protein is the next challenge! *fats are good, especially coconut oil. *Avoid all sugars and *chemicals. No GMOs
You won’t eat again for 4 hours so play with the amounts to see what holds you. Your next 2 meals are a copy of the 1st with *4-5 hour stretches between and *after the last. Drink lots of water, tea, green tea, plain coffee (no creamer). *Stevia is ok.
*Workout daily after 5pm!!– *weight lifting is preferred or *yoga. No cardio!
23 foods to increase Leptin Sensitivity: ( …eggs, lean beef, pork, turkey, fish, oatmeal, whole grains, grapefruit, apples, broccoli, almonds, green tea, purple sweet potatoes, beans, olive oil, turmeric, elder berries, blue berries, blackberries, spirulina algae and sesame seeds, skim milk and low fat yogurt.
According to experts this will help our Lyme Disease patient 🙂 I’ll keep you posted… ForGlorySake! –Anna
