Dr. Kellyann’s BONE BROTH DIET,
Kellyann Petrucci, MS, ND
All that and lose up to 15 pounds in 21 days! According to the New York Times, bone broth “ranks with green juice and coconut water as the next magic potion…for perfect health”.
Dr. Kellyann, naturopath and a weight loss specialist, says bone broth delivers concentrated healing. The broth is made by simmering meat, poultry, or fish bones for hours until the collagen of the bones turns into gelatin. The result is a nutrient-rich liquid, which Dr. K calls “liquid gold”.
According to Dr. K, there are three main benefits to drinking bone broth: 1) Gelatin strengthens your skin by providing the material for the body to make new collagen. 2) Gelatin fights inflammation. Less inflammation equals faster weight loss. It also reduces symptoms of autoimmune disorders, bringing relief to those with arthritis, celiac disease, and psoriasis. 3) Gelatin heals the gut. It is thought that gelatin stabilizes the gut mucosa by decreasing damage from excess acid. Other variables explaining this phenomenon are discussed in depth by Dr. K.
This diet plan also uses intermittent fasting. During the 3-week program, you will fast on bone broth any two nonconsecutive days each week. On fasting days, you consume up to 6 cups of bone broth or 5 cups of broth and an approved snack at 7:00p. This is very appealing when you cook up one of Dr. K’s delicious, hearty bone broth recipes with salt and spices.
In essence, with Dr. K, you are living on bone broth, meat and eggs, specific fruits and veggies, plus healthy fats. Keep in mind, it’s only for 3 weeks and promises great results.
Siri Says: This is not a diet for vegetarians. The downside of the plan is that rapid weight loss is easily followed by rapid weight gain. Dr. K suggests re-instituting the two weekly fasting days when you experience weight gain.
She also states that if you’re chronically stressed, sad, or angry, you will likely regain the weight. Although Dr. Kellyann has some suggestions about this, I want to refer you to Ms. Kingsford’s book, which addresses seriously the emotional component of weight loss.
