Losing weight is hard. It takes dedication to a healthy diet and lifestyle–and yes, that includes exercising regularly. If you’re eating the right foods and hitting your fitness goals, sometimes it takes a little extra effort to make the extra pounds around your waist come off. It is a stubborn area, after all.
Nutritionists say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day which is why you should start your morning off with a healthy fat-burning drink to work towards your goal of a flat stomach.
According to Kellyann Petrucci, MS, ND, author of Dr. Kellyann's Bone Broth Diet, the best way to start your morning is by sipping on a cup of bone broth.
"First of all, it's rich and filling, so it keeps those cravings under control. And second, it's loaded with nutrients that help reduce inflammation, which is the biggest cause of weight gain,” said Dr. Petrucci, “So it packs a double punch when it comes to slimming power—and as a bonus, it's loaded with the building blocks of collagen, so it smoothes your skin as it takes off the pounds."
They say chicken soup is good for the soul and it really is, for a lot of reasons! Consuming bone broth has a long list of benefits for your health, weight loss and other. Bone broth helps improve joint health, reduce cellulite, boost your immune system, and reduce inflammation.
If drinking a cup of straight bone broth as soon as you wake up doesn’t appeal to you (and we don’t blame you), try one of the breakfast drink recipe ideas below.
The easiest way to make a bone broth drink more appetizing is by adding a few simple ingredients to it. Try mixing in lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper -- all anti-inflammatory ingredients -- to freshen up the flavor.
Another way to get in your daily cup of bone broth is by mixing it into a smoothie. Make it the liquid base for a green smoothie and you’ll barely be able to taste it!
