You've Got Your Bone Broth. Now What?
So, you saw my videos or read one of my posts, you purchased my Bone Broth, and you’re ready to get rolling. Boom! I’m so excited for you!
Let’s do it!
In this post, I’m going to tell you the easiest way to get started... and then I’m going to tell you about the other options I have for reaching your health goals faster.
BUT FIRST… I want to say thank you for putting your trust in me. I’ve helped thousands of people transform their health and I know I can help you too. I’ve been called the Last-Chance Doc because most of my patients had to come to me after conventional medicine had failed them and the advice and prescriptions weren’t working despite all their hard work.
But you’re skipping the line because right here, RIGHT NOW, you’re getting the same advice I would give my frustrated patients…
- Eat Paleo foods
- Cut the sugar
- Go low-carb
- Add Bone Broth to your diet
- Consider intermittent fasting
These five principles are the foundation of my Bone Broth Lifestyle as well as my other plans.
NOTE: If you haven’t already, you can download my Bone Broth Lifestyle Guide here.
What you’ll experience by drinking two cups of bone broth a day
Bone Broth is an amazing powerfood that I started using years ago with my patients and found that two cups a day, or 14 cups a week, worked wonders.
Initially, I had my patients replace sugary snacks or their high-sugar, caffeinated afternoon pick-me-up with bone broth. That’s where my two-cup-a-day advice comes from.
Bone broth is low in carbs, low in calories, and high in protein. By adding it to your daily diet — especially in place of sugary snacks or drinks — and following my Bone Broth Lifestyle guidelines, you’ll experience fewer cravings and crashes, and increased energy levels. Most of my patients also experienced weight loss, less bloating, and improvement in their hair, skin and nails.
BONUS: Once you cut down those crashes and cravings, eating healthier foods will become easier and something your body actually craves.
Let’s talk about my other plans...
If you’ve purchased my bone broth, you’ve probably found my popular Facebook group DKA Every Day. From this group, people are learning about my other plans: the Bone Broth Diet, the 10-Day Belly Slimdown, and the Cleanse and Reset. Discovering these other options often brings up questions like:
- What’s the difference between each plan?
- Do I have to do all the plans?
- Do I have to do the plans in a certain order?
- What do I do after I complete one of the plans?
Here’s the scoop…
When starting on the Bone Broth Lifestyle, most of my patients experienced rapid improvements in their health and wanted to know how to take it to the next level. At this point I would suggest they try incorporating intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting, IF, is going without food for a limited amount of time. Most common intermittent fasting schedules are a daily fast of 16 to 17 hours and eating only during a 7- to 8-hour window. (This is often referred to as 17:7 or 16:8.)
Another common schedule is to fast for 24 to 36 hours twice a week and eat as usual the other five days a week. (Referred to as 5:2.)
For a lot of my patients, the idea of going 16 to 36 hours without food seemed impossible, and I understood their concern. So again, I turned to Bone Broth and advised them to drink it during a fasting period to help them get used to going without solid food for those times. The beautiful thing was most patients' weight loss increased during those fasting periods, even when consuming bone broth!
How to incorporate intermittent fasting into your lifestyle
If you are considering incorporating intermittent fasting into your lifestyle, it’s as simple as choosing a fasting schedule that has you going food-free for a certain amount of time daily or weekly.
But something to know is that while intermittent fasting often works regardless of the quality of your diet, it works best when following a healthy, low-carb diet plan for your meals during your eating window.
My two best-selling books both incorporate healthy eating plans and intermittent fasting:
- My Bone Broth Diet book gives a diet plan and guidelines to follow for a 5:2 intermittent fasting plan.
- My 10-Day Belly Slimdown book gives a diet plan and guidelines to follow for a 17:7 intermittent fasting plan.
What about the Cleanse and Reset?
My Cleanse and Reset was born from my own struggle with my health. I’ve told the story many times, so long story short, my big crash-and-burn moment happened when I passed out on the floor of an airplane mid-flight. My body had just given out. Years of stress and work and rushed meals had finally caught up with me. That’s when I knew I had to change the way I treated my body. Bottom line was my health was suffering and I needed something to turn it around fast. I used bone broth, cleansing smoothies, and nutrient-dense soups to rejuvenate and restore my body quickly. I had a few patients try it and they loved it and I turned that plan into my Cleanse and Reset book.
Then to make it even easier on people who needed help immediately, I developed my Cleanse and Reset kit to do all the work for you — just add water.
So, which Dr. Kellyann plan is right for you?
When someone embarks on a journey to better health and discovers Bone Broth and, ultimately, my advice, I get asked these questions the most:
Do I need to do every plan and do I need to do them in a particular order?
My answer is No and No.
My advice is to pick the plan that best suits how you live your daily life and consider how quickly you want to see weight loss and improvements in health.
Here’s a quick at-a-glance difference between the plans.
A few other things I like to tell my patients:
If you like three meals a day and don’t want to fast, try my Bone Broth Lifestyle for whatever increment works for you, i.e 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks.
If you like three meals a day and want to incorporate intermittent fasting, try the Bone Broth Diet or follow the Bone Broth Lifestyle guidelines and pick a fasting schedule that is comfortable for you.
- If you often skip breakfast and like easy meals like smoothies and soups, try my 10-Day Belly Slimdown.
If you need to lose weight really quickly try my 10-Day Belly Slimdown or my Cleanse and Reset.
- If you want to quickly jumpstart your weight loss and don’t want to cook at all, consider my Cleanse and Reset kit.
Once you pick a plan, prepare mentally to permanently change your lifestyle.
This is something you may not want to hear, but the path to a healthier you should not stop when you reach your goal weight.
If you do one of my plans, lose weight, and feel and look better, but then go right back to the lifestyle that made you unhealthy, you’re going to be back where you started. I know you don’t want that.
The easiest way to keep your wins after following one of my plans is to follow the guidelines in the Bone Broth Lifestyle, but add in “off-plan” meals 20% of the time. This is called the 80/20 principle.
What 80/20 looks like
For 80% of your meals, you’ll stick to the Bone Broth Lifestyle template for your meals, and for the other 20% of your meals, you’ll get to splurge. As long as you keep your portions reasonable, nothing is off limits during your “off plan” 20%.
It’s easiest to look at 80/20 on a weekly basis. So that means if you’re consuming three meals a day each week, 20% (four) of those meals could be meals where you splurge or indulge.
One last thing…
The power of my plans are thanks to healthy low-carb and low-sugar foods, bone broth, and intermittent fasting. These are principles you’re going to want to keep for good as part of your healthy new lifestyle.
