In brief: May cause weightgain

Recently, a study was published that may possibly exhibit a link between fruit consumption and weight gain.
The study determined that high consumption of fructose may well be a cause of leptin resistance. By eating fruit, you can help the natural occurring leptin to help increase your body's metabolism function - high leptin is correlated with leptin resistance.

In brief: Fish-rich diet

Digestive tract cannot absorb leptin, so even if you could find a food rich in leptin it wouldn't help - forget about finding foods rich in leptin.
The body has to create it's own leptin. And as you lose weight, leptin levels drop, because fat itself causes the body to produce more leptin. Latest study suggests that a fish-rich diet somehow makes your body more sensitive to leptin, &help wt loss.
