Problems arise when leptin levels are high over a long period, such as in obesity, which makes the satiety center insensitive to leptin. To add to the confusion, low ghrelin levels make the hunger center sensitive to ghrelin. This situation helps explain why high leptin levels in obese individuals leads to an increased sensitivity of the hunger center to low ghrelin and no decrease in hunger. Based on these mechanisms, these hormones and their mechanisms are potential targets for new weight loss drugs.

A healthy rate of weight loss is one to two pounds per week. Greater rates of weight loss will not likely be sustained over time. Remember that the numbers on the scale are not as important as your body composition—the amount of fat in relation to lean mass. One pound of weight loss requires a deficit of 3500 kilocalories. Thus, to lose one pound per week, you will need to cut back on food intake and/or increase your exercise routine to shift the energy balance equation by 500 kilocalories per day.
