In this review, we look at whether this Leptica No Thanks, I’m Full in more detail, how it is supposed to work, and whether it does actually work. Carry on reading to see what we think of this ‘revolutionary’ weight-loss product.
Leptica No Thanks, I’m Full is a US manufactured diet supplement designed to help reduce hunger cravings and give you a sense of satiety before eating, in an attempt to stop you from overeating. It is made by Leptica, in the US. It comes in a spray form, which is designed to be used around three times a day, consistently.
We cannot find any side effects associated with this product.
From the Leptica Lifestyle website, the supplement costs $49.95. This price includes shipping. However, if you shop around, you may get it cheaper. We found it on other websites and Amazon for around $44. The bottle contains 2 ounces (60ml), which is about 420 sprays – a six week supply.
Quite simply, this product is all scientific jargon, without any concrete proof or evidence it works. In fact, all the research points to leptin supplements being a complete waste of your time and money, unless they are also designed to help address an imbalance in other hormones, such as thyroid and insulin. The maker of No Thanks, I’m Full makes some bold claims about it being proven to be successful, but we are yet to see the proof.
It is also interesting to see that the man behind the product, Paul Openheim, has no scientific or medical training that we know of – it certainly isn’t mentioned in the ‘about me’ section on the website.
If you decide that the product isn’t working for you, you may be able to get your money back – if Leptica deems that you have been taking the supplement correctly. See the ‘money back guarantee’ tab for more information.

Leptica is a weight loss spray that is manufactured by Leptica, a company based in the USA. The product is designed to quickly and safely reduce hunger cravings and make you feel full. The only active ingredient that it contains is leptin.
To understand how No Thanks, I’m Full works, we need to understand how leptin works.
Leptin is a cell-signalling hormone, discovered by scientists in 1994. It’s often referred to as the ‘starvation hormone’. Leptin is made in fat cells, circulates in the bloodstream, and goes to the brain. It tells the brain if you have enough energy stored in the fat cells, almost like a thermostat. If there is a certain level, which is different for everyone, of leptin in your body, the brain knows to eat food at a normal rate and burn fat at a normal weight. If your leptin levels are too low, when you try and lose weight, your brain thinks it is going into starvation mode and kicks start the processes within your body to get the leptin levels back up to its normal threshold. One way it does this is by stimulating the vagus nerve – a nerve that runs between your stomach and your brain. It is what makes you hungry. It makes you want to eat more – and well, if you’re trying to lose weight, that is where the problem lies.
For maximum effect, take three times daily: when waking up, midday and before bed. Spray it three times under the tongue. Make sure your mouth is clear of food and drink twenty minutes before and five minutes after to allow for signalling to work.
It was thought, when Leptin was first discovered, that leptin would be the cure to obesity and weight loss issues. Surely, people who were overweight were deficient in leptin, and needed a supplement – such as No Thanks, I’m Full, to help them raise the levels. However, this is not the case.
If you are overweight, you might have a large amount of leptin in your body, but somewhere, somehow, the signal getting to your brain to signify that you don’t need to eat is getting lost. This is called leptin resistance. According to Leptica, “by using a conventional delivery system they could not figure out how to avoid what is called leptin resistance. Our formula, now used for over 3 years by medical practitioners and nutritionists is proven to be able to circumvent leptin resistance and provide its positive influences”. However, despite stating that it has been used for several years successfully and safely by doctors, there is absolutely no proof. In fact, the proof all goes against it working. See our ‘does it work’ section to find out more about why it doesn’t work.
Leptica is a US-based company, started up by Paul Openheim. He lived and studied in China, and explored traditional Chinese medicine. On his return to the US, he worked for, and later acquired, a company which he states “unified Western disciplines of endocrine research and isopathy with eastern concepts of energy and wellness”. He researched cell pathways and signalling when looking into dementia and Parkinsons, and fell upon Leptin. He developed No Thanks, I’m Full, which he claims has been used for several years by doctors and has been proven to be safe and effective. He does not refer to or link to any evidence of this, other than a few ‘customer’
Leptica claim that their product:
Safely and promptly reduce hunger urges by merging scientific research on the polypeptide adipokine called ‘Leptin’, with the safe and proven medical science of isopathy – in this patented application.
It states that it has the following benefits:
No, it doesn’t work. The reason it doesn’t work is that most overweight people already have high levels of leptin in their body – the problem isn’t how much is in their body, but how it is getting to their brain and working.
Most people with a leptin imbalance have other hormone imbalances as well, namely insulin and thyroid, which is potentially what is stopping the messages getting to the brain. The leptin balance is the bottom tier – the other two need to be sorted first. As No Thanks, I’m Full only contains leptin, it isn’t going to work.
We cannot find any evidence of any side effects associated with this product.
As with all supplements, do not exceed the maximum daily intake. Food supplements should not replace a varied diet and healthy lifestyle. Consult a doctor if you have any existing medical issues or take any prescription medication.
There are a few reviews dotted around the internet, generally very positive. It is very interesting that one of the reviews on Amazon claimed:
I use it to control cravings. For me it’s ice cream, potato chips and fried chicken. I still can’t believe it works as well as it does.
Their cravings are identical to the founders:
Now, when cravings are involved, and I know that for me, my 3 addictions are ice cream, potato chips and fried chicken – all pleasures and reward treats from my childhood
There is a rather complicated and somewhat lengthy process in which a customer needs to follow to get their money back if they are unhappy. The following is taken from the website:
Most all reports that it doesn’t result by not taking it as indicated to enhance the corrective cell signaling needed to promote satiety and reduce cravings. Most people say, “I got busy and forgot to take it,” or have just done it sporadically, in which case it cannot be expected to work as indicated.
If you have taken it properly and found it did not work as indicated and wish for a refund, please return:
(1) the unused bottle;
(2) Chart Your Use form to indicate it was taken properly;
(3) a short paragraph explaining your expectations concerning appetite and craving control and how you felt No Thanks I’m Full™ did not meet them.
