comment Is Leptin Stimulated by Insulin Alone?
Okay: I want to know which foods best induce high leptin levels in humans. If insulin is the primary simulator of leptin production and release then high GI carbohydrates will be more useful, and possibly some amino acids. If not, there might be other foods that can do a better job without spiking insulin.

I'm looking for how circulating insulin effects leptin levels in humans

Would it be correct to say that this abstract indicates that leptin could be involved in preventing the decline of metabolism when a person has restricted calorie intake for a period of time?

@Alan Would that be specific enough? I can go into more detail but thought keeping the question fairly general would make the answers be of use to more people.

Is leptin release stimulated by circulating insulin directly? Which other factors are involved in the level of insulin release? My goal is to identify nutrients that aid/trigger leptin production and release without causing undue inflammation or body-fat storage.
