Bone Broth and Weigh Loss
So, the time has come… You’ve squeezed into those skinny jeans one too many times and have decided to bite the bullet. It’s time to shed some of those unwanted kilos. It might be something you’ve been wanting to do for a while. Perhaps you’ve been through a few weight loss options already and been unsuccessful, or maybe it’s not even really about the weight for you and is about your overall wellbeing and detoxing your body from so many of the nasties we inevitably consume these days. Either way, if you’ve been thinking about it and researching it, you’ve probably come across bone broth as one of the more healthy options to assist you in your quest.
The magic of bone broth is multi-facetted. Along with having the ability to decrease the appearance of wrinkles
– thanks to high levels of collagen, being an incredibly strong gut healing agent
– thanks to the wonders of gelatin (among other things) and being a sensational protector of joints. It can also assist with weight loss and with detoxing the body. You might wonder how it does this… Well, let me explain…
Bone broth is, as previously mentioned, jam packed full of nutrients and minerals – some of which are slimming minerals and amino acids, including fat-burning calcium, stress-soothing magnesium, and gut-healing gelatin. When attempting weight loss, it is incredibly important that while we exercise and diet, we consume the right amount of nutrients and minerals to sustain energy and overall health. It is for this reason that bone broth is the perfect accompaniment or substitute when attempting to drop a trouser size or two.
When you dig a little deeper into the background of bone broth and it’s capabilities, you also find that it’s been around for centuries and brings with it, the ability to assist inflammation (thanks to the glyicine within the gelatin) – and more specifically – inflammation of the gut.
The gut is home to trillions of microbes – both good and bad. These microbes maintain a balance, which keeps our systems running at their best. If ‘off balance’ however, our bodies can react badly by either producing toxic chemicals or forming bacteria. Things like antibiotics, stress, poor diet and gut altering medications, such as antacids, can cause microbe imbalances – which can, in-turn, result a flood of inflammatory chemicals and unwanted weight gain. A great way to level things out again – or to keep them level in the first place, is to consume nutrient dense bone broth.
There are so many fad diets out there – and there is new one almost every week, but the fact of the matter is that consuming bone broth is an ancient tradition dating back to 1000CE. It’s difficult to determine whether it was used for weight loss centuries ago – however, it’s nutritional values remain - it’s positive impact on the body is evident in it’s popularity and it’s numerous benefits have been appreciated across the ages, regardless of the core reasons for it’s consumption.
Be it for detoxing, kilo shedding, assisting with health issues or just attempting to live a heathier lifestyle… Whether you wish to consume it through liquid fasting, as a replacement or as an addition to your current healthy diet, bone broth – and more specifically, Broth of Life’s dehydrated organic bone broth is an excellent option. It’s healthy, it’s healing, it’s yummo – and a cup of it will leave you feeling full with only 50 or 60 calories to accompany your satisfaction.
