She also works with top executives, renowned thought leaders, and “regular” people who have struggled with their weight and health for years—that is until they found Dr. Kellyann.
Who is Dr. Kellyann? She is an avid clinical researcher and doctor specially trained in Biological Medicine at the renowned Marion Foundation and Paracelsus Klinik in Zurich, Switzerland, Dr. Kellyann has PROVEN that anyone’s health—and life—can be transformed simply through the power of food… especially one powerful, centuries-old food she calls, Liquid Gold.
Over the last 20 years she has prescribed her scientifically-proven diet that’s helped even the sickest, most obese patients achieve their best health and a slimmer stronger body—for life!
Today she is a leading weight-loss transformation and anti-aging expert, and a New York Times bestselling author who has helped celebrities and countless men and women look and feel their best from the inside out.
As an Italian mother of two who loves to eat delicious food, but knows that busy people need life to be practical and rewarding, Dr. Kellyann has worked tirelessly to perfect a satisfying diet lifestyle that actually works… without having to starve or be forced to eat bland tasteless food, or spend hours cooking.
Dr. Kellyann’s unique diet has caught the attention of the most respected media sources, and indeed the entire country. Today she is often called, “Doctor Bone Broth.” She’s been featured on Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, ABC, NBC, CBS, The Doctors, in Time Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, was the host her own hit PBS special, and was even on the MEGATRON in New York Times Square.

What’s the Star Ingredient that helps anyone Lose the Weight and the Wrinkles… in Just 21 Days?
So, exactly how does Dr. Kellyann turn back the clock and help her clients detox, lose weight and look and feel a decade younger in just three weeks? It all has to do with inflammation and gut health. When you can heal your gut and stop inflammation, your body stops aging prematurely and turns into a natural fat burner.
The titles of her bestselling books reveal one secret of Dr. Kellyann’s success: bone broth.
She calls it “Liquid Gold”… a magical elixir made by extracting out the richest concentration possible of collagen, gelatin and other healing properties found in animal bones through slow cooking.
For centuries doctors and grandmas have cooked this broth to nourish and heal without the use of synthetic medicine of today. Now, people who have caught onto the healing wonders of bone broth know that it’s the collagen from the bones of beef, chicken, turkey, and fish that has the power to restore and preserve their health and youth.
What collagen does for your skin
Basically, collagen is the “glue” that holds your body together. It’s the most abundant structural protein in the body—and one of its jobs is to keep your skin strong, smooth, and firm. Unfortunately, once you hit thirty, your skin has less and less collagen each year. Eventually, there isn’t enough collagen in your skin to do the job… and that’s when you start to see wrinkles and sagging.
If you want to reverse this aging, a skin cream containing collagen can help. But to really make a difference, you need to mainline collagen to your skin cells from the inside. That’s why it’s crucial to drink bone broth.
Bone broth is loaded with collagen. It’s why bone broth is Dr. Kellyann’s #1 prescription for detoxing, de-aging the skin and looking younger, but it also keeps you strong and young inside too…
What collagen does for every cell in your body
Collagen is a superfood that makes you look and feel awesome all over, however the opposite is also true. Without enough collagen, especially as you age, your cells will literally start to shrivel as they lose their vitality and “bounce.”
When you drink bone broth, you flood your body with collagen and other essential nutrients that “plump up” every cell and tissue in your body. When this happens your skin will look and feel radiant, but it will also heal and strengthen your gut, reduce inflammation, and revive your immune system.
The result is rock-solid health with a natural ability to “melt” fat, smooth wrinkles, maintain stronger more lustrous hair, skin and nails, sleep better, feel more energetic, and even reverse many of today’s most dangerous health conditions. Here’s a deeper look into how the rich concentration of collagen in bone broth helps you stay slim and young:
Collagen is packed with glycine—and glycine is one of the body’s most powerful detoxifiers, so it cleanses your cells and makes them vibrant. As a result, you’ll feel younger… and sexier, too! Glycine fights inflammation and helps keep your immune system working efficiently. Want more good news? Glycine is calming—and a dose of it before bedtime can even help you awaken more refreshed.
Collagen is loaded with the same gut-healing nutrients as gelatin (which is basically cooked collagen), so it helps transform a sick, “leaky” gut into a rock-solid one. This, in turn, extinguishes the chronic inflammation that packs weight on you—especially around your belly. As a result, you can melt off extra pounds much more easily.
Collagen is absolute magic for your hair and fingernails. And in addition to erasing wrinkles on your face, it can help prevent cellulite on your thighs and butt by strengthening the skin in these areas.
Collagen is rich in joint-healing glucosamine and chondroitin—two nutrients many doctors prescribe for joint pain. In fact, a 2015 study found that chondroitin outperformed the prescription drug Celebrex in treating knee osteoarthritis.
You can make this incredible “Liquid Gold” bone broth inexpensively at home by following Dr. Kellyann’s recipes. It’s not the same broth you’ll typically find in stores, but it is the same as many famous restaurants and celebrity chefs like Marco Canora of Brodo in New York sell for $12 a cup! You know this is something special when thousands of regular customers line up everyday and pay that much to get their hot cup of bone broth… instead of coffee!
Below, you’ll find Dr. Kellyann’s gourmet yet super simple Beef Bone Broth Recipe, but as you’ve probably guessed, the secret to truly restoring your health and beauty involves more than just adding in foods. You’ll also have to cut out a few pro-aging foods in order to see results in just 21 days!
Bone broth takes only minutes to make—it’s the ultimate fast food. Pop everything in your crock pot, walk away, and come back in 6-12 hours (depending on preference and the type of bones you use) to find delicious, gut-healing, fat-burning “liquid gold.”
2 unpeeled carrots, scrubbed and roughly chopped
2 stalks celery, including leafy part, roughly chopped
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed (optional)
3½ pounds grass-fed beef bones (preferably joints and knuckles) —OR— 2 or more pounds raw chicken bones/carcasses and additional wings, thighs or feet —OR— 1 turkey carcass
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Place the vegetables, garlic, bones, and bay leaves into a stockpot.
Sprinkle on the salt, drizzle with vinegar, and add enough water to cover everything by 1 inch.
Cover the pot. Cook on low for 8 to 12 hours for beef or about 6 to 8 hours for chicken or turkey, skimming the broth occasionally.
Pour the broth through a fine strainer and discard the solids.
Taste the broth and add more salt if needed.
Chill the broth. It will keep for 3 days in the fridge and 3 months in your freezer.
Actress Shailene Woodley is a huge fan of bone broth and raves about it in this interview with MTV!
“Bone Broth is… everything.”
—Shailene Woodley, actress, Insurgent and Big Little Lies
Actress and lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow also put bone broth on her her newsletter’s winter detox menu, and has published several articles on GOOP about this slimming, filling, ancient elixir.
Cut Out These Foods for 21 Days to Become Slimmer, Younger and Healthier!
In addition to adding in “liquid gold” bone broth, you’ll also need to cut out pro-aging foods from your diet for 21 days. When people give up these foods, rapid de-aging is the rule, not the exception. The reason permanent weight loss can be such a challenge is that the three foods that age you the most — making you washed out, obese, tired, and sick — are foods you probably love.
Initially, giving them up will probably be tough, for two reasons:
You’ve been eating them all your life, and,
Biologically, you’re actually addicted to some of them.
While the initial Bone Broth Diet detox lasts 21 days, don’t think of it as just a temporary “diet.” It’s a new way of life. You can have an occasional cheat, but if you want optimal results, you’ll only eat pro-aging foods on rare occasions after the 21 day detox.
There are three main foods you need to kiss goodbye.
Sugar is one of the hardest foods for people to give up. That’s because it’s actually addictive. But eating sugar is one of the fastest ways to make yourself old. Here’s why:
Each dose of sugar makes your blood sugar skyrocket, causing your body to pump out more insulin. Eventually, you develop insulin resistance. That leads to a fat belly, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Sugar causes inflammation, which affects every cell in your body. In particular, inflammation can make your skin look old and blotchy.
Sugar accelerates aging by increasing oxidative stress (cell damage caused by renegade molecules called free radicals).
Fructose — one form of sugar — is linked to cancer, liver damage, increases in “bad” cholesterol, and even changes in skin collagen that can cause wrinkles.
The bottom line: Sugar gunks up your body and makes your cells old, sick, and sluggish. And until you exorcise your “sugar demon,” you’re not ever going to feel — or look — your best.
Wheat and other grains (including whole grains)
When it comes to grains, the first thing to know is that your body doesn’t need them. You may feel like you need them — but that’s partly because highly processed grains, much like sugar, are addictive.
The second thing to know is that all grains — even supposedly “healthy” whole grains — are packed with carbohydrates. These carbs age you by raising your blood sugar levels, forcing your body to produce more insulin and leading to the insulin resistance I talked about earlier.
Moreover, grains contain high levels of two anti-nutrients: phytic acid and lectins. Phytic acid binds to minerals, cutting down on the anti-aging nutrients you get from food. And lectins damage the lining of your intestines, causing leaky gut and allowing toxins to leak into your bloodstream, where they cause pro-aging inflammation throughout your body.
Finally, most grains contain gluten, and many people are gluten-sensitive or gluten-intolerant. For these people, eating gluten can trigger autoimmune disorders, digestive problems, arthritis-like joint pain, and a host of other ailments that make people look and feel old.
Industrial Seed Oils
If you think that seed oils like corn and soybean oil are good for you, think again. Even canola oil — billed as a health food — belongs in a landfill, in my opinion.
Why? First of all, seed oils (even canola) contain high ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, because our Western diet is heavy in seed oils, we now consume 10 to 25 times more omega-6 fatty acids than our early ancestors did. That’s bad, because omega-3 fatty acids fight inflammation, while omega-6 fatty acids are pro-inflammatory. So it’s no surprise that we’re seeing an epidemic of “aging” diseases linked to inflammation, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease and cancer.
Second, seed oils are heavily processed. They undergo caustic refining, bleaching, and degumming processes, and the end result is hardly food at all. They also go rancid quickly, making them even more toxic to your cells.
What are better choices? Coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, and butter (or ghee, made by removing the milk solids from butter). These healthy, natural fats contain nutrients that nourish your cells and make their membranes strong and “bouncy.” They also make you feel full and satisfied, leading you to eat less and lose weight.
“(Bone broth is) full of gelatin and fat and has bone marrow and I think it is very good to keep yourself young… It helps to restructure the tissues for your skin, you hair and your nails. It’s full of collagen.”
—Selma Hayek, actress and producer, Ugly Betty (and so many others!), from interview withPeople Magazine.
Dr. Kellyann’s Challenge To YOU!
Are you still with reading, even after the cold, hard truth about what you need to cut out? If so, you may be thinking that giving up these three pro-aging foods — sugars, grains, and seed oils — sounds hard. And it is. (Hence the word challenge!) But if you’re fed up with feeling old, draggy, and fat, this is the fastest, healthiest way to look and feel young again.
So if you’re seeking a real transformation, cut out these foods for 21 days. Instead, 5 days per week, eat lean meats, fish, eggs, healthy fats, fruits, veggies, and nuts. In particular, eat anti-aging superfoods like coconut, butter, blueberries, and grass-fed meats. 2 days per week, skip the solids and feast on up to 6 cups of bone broth. Then see if the benefits make you want to continue.
It’s hard to break old habits and food addictions, and you may often feel like quitting during your 21-day “detox.” But tough it out — and when you’re done, you’ll feel revitalized, recharged, and rejuvenated. That’s because when you get toxins out of your cells, those cells will begin to glow with energy once again … and so will you.
