I wasn't saying that down regulation of leptin causes appetite suppression, as that is definitely the opposite effect of leptin. When its down people are able to eat large amounts of food without getting full. The appetite suppresion mainly comes from the stomach shrinking and this is why when you initially increase someone's food intake its hard for them to eat.
