I've just discovered Dr Rosedal amazing work and I have finished the Rosedal diet book, great book.

I've a question regarding leptin. As I understood leptin hormone is produced by the fat cells. More fat cells, more leptin, less hunger. Less fat cells, less leptin, more hunger. I am currently fat adapted and in ketosis. My question is how come if I skip one ore two meals I got hungry? Have I burnt that much fat during this 10h fast that I have produced less leptin? It feels like appetite fluctuate a lot more than the loss or gain of fat cells that produced leptin...

Is there only leptin involved in appetite/hunger or other mecanisms?
