I've know little about leptin and NHE and am very fascinated by them and feel I could benifit from them. As a newbie, I tried searching them to gain better understanding but wind up reading miles of details that elude me. so anyone with a quick summary and good grasp on this please reply

I having been doing NHE since mid-December and seen GREAT results. When it comes to leptin NHE does not optimize this horomone as much as it does insulin, growth horomone, etc. Leptin is secreted during the carb-up meal(s) but otherwise, I dont feel that leptin is optimized at all. NHE is generally a low-carb diet, (under 30-60g per day), other than the carb-up meals. During the carb-up meals, the intake of so many calories and carbs stimulates secretion of insulin and leptin.

NHE is not the best diet to ensure that leptin is at a good level.
A 40-30-30 diet with random refeeds (every 3-4 days preferably) should be better than NHE.
And then, NHE does not optimize insulin.
