if you are doing a ketogenic diet you are relying on that process to lose the fat. your metabolism may come into play more when you are dieting with regular macros, so imo you should stick to low carbs until the time you have reached your fatloss goals. even then ease into the new diet with moderate carb intake for awhile.
its not a bad thing to carb up for 5 days but it may spill over a bit. drink tons of water during your carb ups.

Leptin is another animal in itself whoch admittedly I dont fully understand and would defer to @EBF Inc comments
Ultimately my original comment was in response to the idea that carbs kick start fat burning which implied the absence of carbs slowed or inhibited it and he needed carbs in order to losse fat again, which the evidence does not support.

I know leptin does play a role and is related to carbohydrate intake but as I said my understanding of it needs some work
As for the research, there is a thread here where a guy posted several studies claiming carbs blunted fat loss and I responded to each of them. Lemme see if I can find that one for you

Leptin increases a host of different hormones and inhibits others. It's role in hunger as well
I've mentioned a post somewhere on AM
Leptin when increased (from the release of insulin) binds to pancreatic receptors and turns off the secretion on insulin. It increases CART and POMC to reduce hunger, increase fat burning as well as catecholamines
It is much more in depth but this is the gist

Yes but not something to do all the time....
And i personally recommend coconut oil
Another way it works is through increasing GIP causing insulin release and ultimately leptin

Not only do I appreciate the sincerity/honesty In your post (as opposed to trying I BS everyone like many on these boards) but I share your sentiment on Leptin.
For whatever reason, this hormone is an enigma to me and at times, flat out mysterious.
I have never fully grasped it's implications. Every time I think I am starting to get a handle on it- I'm lost again.
I would venture to say that even in the medical community - it's poorly misunderstood and hence, misapplied information ensues.
I have never heard anyone on this board speak on Leptin with any convincing authority; save EBF and Coop.
