What is bone broth?
Bone broth is a liquid that is produced by cooking animal bones and connective tissue in water. The water is typically seasoned with vegetables and herbs to provide additional flavor, vitamins and minerals.
Depending on the method of cooking and length of cooking, the viscosity may vary. Collagen is released out of the bones and joints during the cooking process which makes the liquid thicker and possibly gelatin like when cooled.
What is the Bone Broth Diet?
The Bone Broth Diet is a book by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci. It’s focus is on “Improving gut health and reducing inflammation through balanced nutrition and intermittent fasting.”
It is a 21 day diet that focuses on eating whole foods, collagen rich broths and detoxing from sugar, grains and other toxins. You can pick up her book here from Amazon.
How to make bulletproof bone broth

Can I drink bone broth during intermittent fasting?
It depends on why you are fasting. If you’re fasting for gut health you may not want to add bone broth during your fasting period.
Typically only water, tea, and black coffee are drank during fasting if you are fasting for gut health. If you are fasting for caloric restriction, drinking bone broth during your fasting period is fine.

What is the difference between bone broth and stock?
Bone broth is made from boiling the bones from animals until collagen and gelatin is released. It becomes gelatinous and thick when cooled. Stock is made by cooking bones with meat in water. It is typically not cooked as long and has a thinner consistency than bone broth.
How often should you have bone broth?
Some sources say that you should drink at 8 to 32 ounces of bone broth per day. We would suggest having bone broth periodically throughout fasting states.
Which is better beef or chicken bone broth?
Both chicken and beef bone broth are great for your gut and immune health as well as tons of other benefits. Depending on the brand, beef bone broth has slightly more carbs and not as much fat as chicken, but there is no drastic difference between the two.
