Leptin predicts weight loss

Having higher blood levels of leptin (which usually coexists with obesity) makes for quicker weight loss, presumably by appetite suppression. Leptin levels quickly drop as weight is lost, making further weight loss more difficult.

On the bright side, weight loss was associated with higher levels of superoxide dismutase (sod), one of the bodies 3 primary antioxidants (glutathione, sod and catylase).
