The 5-Day Mini-Fast Jump-Start (shared by Dr. Kellyann on the Dr. Oz show) combines overnight and morning fasting windows with healthy, collagen-rich shakes and foods to encourage quick weight loss—up to 1 – 2 pounds a day over the 5 days of this plan.
Who is the 5-Day Mini-Fast Plan for?
THIS PLAN IS FOR those looking to lose weight and inches quickly or get a jump start on their weight loss goals. In 5 days you can lose up to 1 to 2 pounds a day.
The 5-Day Mini-Fast allows legumes which the other plans do not. After the 5 days, move to the 21-day Bone Broth Diet if you have more weight to lose or the Bone Broth PLUS Diet —80/20 Maintenance Plan is you have hit your goal weight.
The 5 Day Mini-Fast can be extended to 10 days or repeated anytime you need to drop a few pounds or inches quickly.
This plan supports a vegetarian lifestyle. People following this program can use pea protein or vegetable broth as they follow the recommended plan.
Mini-Fasting for Weight Loss
Mini-fasting isn’t about fasting for days on end. Instead, it’s about fasting within a confined time period. This trains your body to burn calories during specific times to fight fat, and it becomes habit!
How does a mini-fast help maximize weight loss?
- It minimizes your calories, so it gives your body no choice but to burn stored fat for energy.
- It helps you balance your blood sugar, because it improves your insulin response to blood sugar spikes.
- It manages your hunger hormones. Mini-fasters have lower levels of leptin, a hormone that’s related to obesity. Lower overall leptin levels are a big key to weight control.
