IntroductionDr. Kellyann Petrucci is a naturopathic healer. She believes in using natural treatments, medicines and foods to heal what ails you. She is also a weight loss expert, and has helped thousands lose the weight they had tried so desperately to shed in the past and failed. She teaches the application of a bone broth diet for not only weight loss, but for gaining energy, healing from illness and creating healthy, youthful looking skin. She believes in "moving beyond trends and fads to discover a way of life that works for your body and mind." By the time she had reached 40 years of age, her hormone levels were totally disrupted, and she had packed on some extra pounds. In her own words, "My skin lost its glow, my hair thinned out, and I felt crazy. I was fat, bitchy, and bald." She began researching how to correct her own personal problems. She treated herself as if she was a patient, and discovered natural healing techniques that quickly and safely helped her transform her life. One of the most powerful natural food sources she came across was bone broth. She now prescribes bone broth for cell revitalization to lose weight, reverse the signs of aging, gain energy and reduce chronic inflammation that goes hand-in-hand with cancer, heart disease and other conditions linked with the aging process.
The IdeaAs a 40-year-old doctor, the author of Dr. Kellyann's Bone Broth Diet: Lose Up to 15 Pounds, 4 Inches--and Your Wrinkles!--in Just 21 Days was miserable. Physically and mentally out of shape and looking much older than her actual age, Dr. Kellyann Petrucci felt "invisible". She says people would look right through her or past her, the same people who used to engage her and look her in the eye. She felt as if she were "starting to disappear". She didn't feel as alive as she had in the past, and couldn't imagine living out the next 20 or 30 or 40 years this way. She started looking into natural answers to vitality, healthy, young looking skin and hair, weight loss and overall health and found bone broth. Her bone broth diet book is the culmination of our research that shows how anyone can lose "up to 15 pounds, 4 inches – and your wrinkles – in just 21 days".
How The Book Is Laid OutDr. Kellyann's Bone Broth Diet: Lose Up to 15 Pounds, 4 Inches--and Your Wrinkles!--in Just 21 Days is available as a hardcover or Kindle digital download on Amazon. That online retailer and others also offer CD, audio-book and Audible versions. This book review covers the Kindle e-book, though the content is the same across all formats. After a short shout-out to her parents and sons, Kellyann Petrucci's Bone Broth Diet book begins with a Table of Contents. You see that the book is divided into 3 main parts and 11 chapters. A Foreword is provided by New York Times best-selling author JJ Virgin. The prodigious author and fitness and nutrition expert has written The Sugar Impact Diet, The Virgin Diet and other health-based books. She says that she discovered bone broth relatively recently. She calls it a "comfort food" that also has incredible health properties. It is here that Virgin reveals bone broth is actually one of the oldest natural foods used for its medicinal properties. She points out that it only takes a few minutes to prepare, but keeps you full and satisfied for hours. It is also easy to make bone broth, and if you don't like cooking there are retail products available. You learn that bone broth absolutely crushes food cravings and hunger, while also delivering healthy nutrients and minerals that your body needs. She says that while there are several bone broth diet plans out there, Petrucci's 21 day weight loss plan "totally nailed it". Virgin even recommended Petrucci change the name of the book to "Bone Broth Miracle", because the 21 day transformation can become so miraculous. The basis of this plan is simple. You eat/drink bone broth 2 days a week, and enjoy satisfying, delicious, nutrient-dense foods the other 5 days. Do this for 3 weeks, and your skin and hair are healthier and younger looking, while your wrinkles are less notable, and you lose up to 15 pounds of unwanted weight. The Foreword is followed by an Acknowledgments section. Part 1 is entitled The 3 Fundamentals of the Bone Broth Diet: Fat-Burning Foods, Liquid Gold, and Mini-Fasts (My Triple Threat). This section includes the first 4 chapters of the book. Chapter 1 is titled My 21 Day Challenge to You: Lose the Weight – And the Wrinkles. This initial chapter should get you excited. It reveals that it really is possible to lose 10 or 15 pounds in just 3 weeks, while you eat great tasting, healthy food and never feel hungry. Chapter 2, The Basics of the Bone Broth Diet, discusses exactly that. You learn just what you are going to be eating and drinking for the next 21 days. The author points out that you don't have to count calories, fat grams or carbohydrates, or eat tasteless diet foods. You are also going to be eating whenever you are hungry, something a lot of other diets don't allow you to do. Basically, you will have 5 or 6 meals of bone broth each day, twice a week. This is the "liquid gold" part of the equation where all the magic happens. This part of your 21 day plan is discussed in detail in chapter 3, Your Mini-Fasting Secret to Success: "Liquid Gold". Chapter 4, Metabolic Magic for Your Nonfasting Days: Foods That Melt off Fat and Erase Wrinkles, is very revealing. You find out what foods you can eat to crank up your metabolism and fuel your fat burning furnace. These are the foods you will be eating 5 days a week for the next 21 days, and you can eat as much of them as you like. The 2nd part of the book is appropriately titled Recipes, Meal Plans, and Batch-Cooking Tips. In chapters 5 through 8 you discover the following ... 9 great tasting recipes for gourmet bone broth 15 mini-fasting day snacks Entrees and soups that burn fat Delicious sides and condiments that won't wreck your weight loss plans Customizable meal plans and batch cooking tricks and tips The 3rd part of your book is focused on reducing stress, developing the proper mindset and adding exercise to boost your results. It includes chapters 9 through 11. Here you learn what types of exercises complement the bone broth diet plan to optimize your weight loss efforts. You also learn that cutting stress out of your life can make you slimmer and trimmer. The final chapter is devoted to preparing your mind to keep the weight off after your 21 day program has been completed. A handy Measurement Tracker has been included in an Appendix at the end of the book. This is followed by Endnotes, and a quick About The Author section.
