Many people will probably be able to recover completely and varies between people how long it takes. However, not everyone will be able to lose all the weight that they have gained. That's the cold hard truth.

By resetting your leptin I take it you mean address your leptin resistance. Leptin resistance is caused by an excess of leptin secretion, which desensitizes your hypothalamus to leptin signaling. One important consequence is a dysregulation of... (more)

I agree that you're probably not leptin resistant. If you follow that plan, you will probably notice a decreased need for snacking and an increased ability to go longer and longer between meals. Both good things!
