The truth is humans have been intermittent fasting since we evolved. Back in the days of your early ancestors, a feast-or-famine lifestyle was the norm, and the human body adapted to it by using the “down time” between meals for healing, cleansing, and rejuvenation. Thus, fasting isn't abnormal, it's a healing process.
Typically fasting is hard for many people, but doing an intermittent fast where you replace meals with cups of bone broth, gives you the benefits of fasting without the hunger and cravings that make regular fasting so difficult. Intermittent fasting is not a traditional diet. It’s a sustainable lifestyle change that is flexible and can be adjusted to you. You can intermittent fast for different lengths:
Intermittent fast by shortening your eating window each day. For example, my 10-Day Belly Slimdown has you eat within a 7-hour window each day (noon to 7 pm). Other popular intermittent fasting windows are 16:8 and 20:4, which means you fast for 16, or 20, hours and eat your daily meals during an 8-hour, or 4-hour, window.
Intermittent fasts for 24 hours 2 days a week. During these 24-hour intermittent fasts, often called a 5:2 diet, you restrict your daily caloric intake to 500 calories. In my Bone Broth Diet, I recommend doing two intermittent fasts a week where you sip on bone broth throughout the day.
Bone Broth allows you to load your body with essential nutrients that fight inflammation and help you lose weight.
Golden Bone Broth is a great, and very delicious, keto bone broth recipe. It’s a mouthwatering blend of bone broth, full-fat coconut milk, and the amazing benefits of turmeric. Truly a nutritional powerhouse! Other ketogenic bone broth recipes you’ll love include Bone Broth Egg Drop Soup and Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup.
Bone Broth + Turmeric = Weight Loss Magic!
Nothing beats combining turmeric with bone broth. Here’s an easy recipe, loaded with healing power.
Directions: Add all ingredients to a small pot and heat on medium until the bone broth reaches and slight rolling boil. Note: Try a sprinkle of cayenne pepper or cinnamon for added thermogenic properties.
NOTE: If you like my Coconut Ginger and Mint Chicken Bone Broth soup all you need is a 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder to 8 ounces of this soup for a rich, sipping bone broth.
