Dr Oz: Should You Drink Bone Broth?
Laura Prepon, star of Orange Is The New Black, claims bone broth is the “fountain of youth.” She claims that it heals you from the inside out and takes it with her all day long to sip it throughout the day. Actress Salma Hayek also calls bone broth the “botox alternative” and Shailene Woodley claims “bone broth is everything!”
So how much of a difference can bone broth make in real life and can you really see a difference in just 21 days? Nutritionist and Paleo lifestyle expert Kellyann Petrucci, author of “The Bone Broth Diet,” joined Dr Oz to discuss how the experiment went. But first, she explained that bone broth is made from simmering bones from beef, chicken, or turkey over a long period of time. The broth is then filled with amino acids, calcium, and collagen at just 86 calories a cup! Kellyann recommended you have some bone broth with your meals or before your meals to eat less while still getting the nutrition your body needs.
Dr Oz: 21-Day Bone Broth Experiment
For 21 days, women had bone broth with lunch and dinner, and sipped it throughout the day. What they quickly discovered that they actually consumed 370 calories less on average each day. Samantha and Vanessa first tried bone broth and admitted that it wasn’t too bad, even describing it as comforting. They then explained that it took a few days to get used to it, but as long as the temperature of the broth was hot, it was fine to drink.
Both women didn’t actually make their own broth, but instead bought it already made. During the experiment, Samantha took in 370 less calories each day.
