Greets fellow ATS members.

So my first thread on this website was my ordeal with the COVID-19. The lingering effect I've had from it is osteochondrosis. I never heard of the condition until I was diagnosed with it. Basically it is inflammation of the ligaments in the chest, that connect the ribs to the sternum. My wife has had continuous intestinal problems since having COVID-19, to the point where she is in great pain when having to do nature's deeds because of hemorrhoids.

Anyway I was searching around for some type of help and came across the bone broth diet. We are doing a modified version. Basically it is a fast where you only drink bone broth. We are doing it for 21 days. But we have it modified where we also juice vegetables and some fruit. So it's bone broth and juice and a couple cups of coffee throughout the day nothing else.

I read that this leaves your intestines time to rest and heal since they are not busy digesting solid foods. The liquid digests in minutes, and the minerals and vitamins from the juice revitalize and the proteins and other minerals from the bone broth help in the healing process, the amino acids, the collagen, as other things. People with leaky gut problems allow time for the intestines to heal. It also helps with reduction in inflammation throughout the body. A cup of bone broth has a lot of protein too! Something like 20 grams of protein in a cup.

On my fifth day and I have to admit I hated fasting at first. It's not a hard fast, just no solid foods. Just the juice and the bone broth. The bone broth should be simmered for a day or two to get all the nutrients out of the bones before consuming. That is what makes broth different from stock. Stock is not cooked as long. After simmering for a day (that is what we are doing) u cool it in the fridge, there should be two layers that solidify, the very top is fat and can be thrown away, the second is collagen which is used in the curative process. You keep that.

On Sunday morning I weighed myself and was 181.5 lbs. Started the diet on Monday (technically Sunday night). Today I'm at 175.2 lbs. Weigh myself first thing when getting up with just some boxers and a t shirt so the results are consistent. So in 5 days have lost 5 pounds. I got 16 more days to go. It has been very tempting to give up and eat something. But checking the scale this morning and actually seeing my belly in the mirror has given me impetus to continue.

So far I haven't felt any physical benefits. I am still groggy, and still have the pain in my chest. But I read that is normal for the first phase of the diet. The body is getting used to getting calories from a different type of diet to one that consists of juices and proteins and that causes some definite unsavory effects in some people like me.

So I will update this with my results at the end of the 21 days.

Has anyone tried the bone broth diet and what were your results? And if you have never heard of it you might want to investigate, even if just to fast the body, a little cleansing, and lose a lot of weight fast.

I never did a broth diet, but I did a nearly all carnivore diet for 90 days. Didn’t notice anything on the first week, but the following weeks; I felt great. Aches and pains were gone. I felt more focused in my daily routines. I lost 15 lbs. Then my doc said after doing some blood work that I have to end the diet. Triglycerides went through the roof. Solution. Fish oil. Plan on getting back on the diet soon.

Please do keep us updated I've done fasting before and for me at least by day 2 I'm ornery as hell, and on day 3 headaches and such but by day 5 it all levels out but I did stop at 7 days. SO I've been reading about the bone broth fast, sounds interesting.

Be careful with fasting. I messed up my digestive ecosystem as a result of doing extended fasts. Now I'm bloated all the time with fatigue. I think I have SIBO, actually. I'm in the process of seeing a dietician to figure it out. Very annoying.

You can also develop gallstones with rapid weight loss.

Fasting has benefits but there is a flip side that not many people talk about, it seems.

Thanks for the warning. Have never done a fast in my life. I mean I've gone a day or two without eating from time to time, but mostly because of being sick or emotionally down. I am the type that loses my appetite when I'm sad or anxious, I know others tend to eat more when they get that way. But I've never tried something like this. I will investigate the gallstones and bloating.

I'm doing this for my wife, she is having a real hard time with her intestines, and it is hard for her to keep a diet when I'm on another one. It kills me to see her in pain. And she's happy that I'm with her on this. I kept thinking of making a pizza in the stone oven out back when we're done with the diet, bacon, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms...a good pepper jack cheese, awww...

Has anyone tried the bone broth diet and what were your results?


I grew up with a bone broth diet as a cure to all ailments due to my ethnicity.

How we made it was boiling beef short rib bones, throwing out the water, and then simmering it in new water.
After a long long simmer we would put the whole pot outside to let the fat solidify on the top and removed it.
We would then boil it again, and add seasoning/salt and a some garlic. This was served plain or with a little rice.
This is what was fed to women after they gave birth too (for about a month) After giving birth we were not allowed to eat anything hard/crunchy. It is actually quite delicious and nothing store bought can even come close to the flavor.
I do believe it was very curative.

Quite interseting. I have to agree with you the taste of the broth is delicious. We've done beef and turkey bones (we still had turkey bones stored over from November to make gravy with.) I think the beef bone broth is so good.

I have a suggestion. Get a cloth or plastic flimsy measuring tape so you can measure your waste and other areas. It's easier to see the results that way rather than weighing yourself. This is especially if you are building muscle at the same time because if you are adding muscle weight and losing fat then your weight may not drop much. That's why it's better to measure.

I like bone broth but as you stated, it's a lot of work to make it. The stuff in the store is not real bone broth.

I fast once a year for about ten days, doctors advice is be very greedy with the broth, it has a lot of punch and can lead to the body not switching over completely to "no food" mode.

I don't want to give medical advice, read a lot before you try it. You will be very moody but the first food you eat and taste is just wonderful and it helps enjoying things more.

The cruel thing is I, of course, still need to prepare food for my kid. The smell is very tempting.

I make beef bone broth occasionally. I throw some cabbage, onions, carrots, and celery in the pot and simmer it for about fourteen hours. We use grassfed organic beef bones for that. It is really good for making french onion soup, save the bone grease too, it is really good for making things, it is very nutritious. Cooling it in the fridge brings the bone grease to the top and we use that to fry the onions and potatoes. It is really expensive if you go out and buy bone grease. Beef bone grease does not taste greasy, because it contains so much calcium, I even butter bread with it, but you need a little salt to bring out the taste.

If you add a little vinegar the time to make the broth is reduced quite a bit. If you use organic bones, there is less contaminated glycine in the broth. they tend to feed lots of glyphosate preharvest treated grains to commercial cows. The glycine still has remnants of the glyphosate in it which I do not know how to remove.

I make lots of soups to control my epilepsy, I use mostly soup bones from beef and chicken dark meat that has more collagen and bones and cartilage in it because that collagen is good for you. Good bone broth when cooled is like Jello, it is easy to remove the fat after cooled. We have three quarts in the freezer right now to use for future minestrome or french onion soup....it sure makes those soups taste good compared to store bought broths.

I don't know about a fast like you are talking about, I do know I lost about ten pounds only eating soups for a month one time and I felt really good for months. I eat soups about five or six times a week. I prefer using ahmish chicken for soup, more taste, and organic chicken is way out of my price range.

The real stuff takes a lot of time, but you can make a bunch of it all at once.
I normally do it in winter.
Everyone in my family loves it and gobbles it down too fast, so we usually don't have any to save.

Yes, that is so good & the right way!
I've had some terrible French onion soup because people just use canned stuff or powder for the base, yuck!

They used to have a few restaurants around here that made real french onion soup made with bone broth from their own boiling of them. We used to go to those places to get the french onion soup, they were expensive at the time, but delicious. Now there is no place around here that makes it good anymore, so we make it ourselves. Most of the restaurants just get canned broths to make the soups, but their soup is not that expensive. Those places I mentioned were like five bucks a bowl back in the early eighties...but it came with garlic bread too. Everywhere else, lousy soup for about two fifty. I would rather pay the extra for soup that is made right.

Sounds like you're eating pretty health all the time. Will definitely save the fat. And will add vinegar to the cooking process. Thanks for the tips. A tablespoon of apple vinegar should be good?

I'm like you. I don't like to give medical advice out. I am glad you gave your experience. I haven't felt hungry since the diet began. And I believe it's because of exactly what you stated, taking enough of the juices and the bone broth. I wasn't even paying attention to all the vegetables my wife is adding to the juices so I asked her, and it is a lot. She's spending just as much just on the vegetables and fruits than we spend usually on the grocery budget. I thought it would be less.

I use white vinegar, it does not give any of the malaic acid taste to the broth. I try to buy heinz or some more natural white vinegars. We always have organic apple cider vinegar with mother in the house, but I don't use that for bone broth.

I know what you mean I had to isolate myself around everybody else breakfast and dinner times. Yes that first bite of whatever taste so good, but don't stray too far from a restroom after the first meal ...

Broth is great for a cool morning, in fact I'd prefer it over coffee or tea, sure it takes a while but it is worth it.

All you need is the source, whether it be lamb shanks, corned beef or whatever tickles your fancy just add herbs and vegetables and patience.

Broth can be versatile, but I wouldn't recommend it as a diet, just something to warm you up with a blanket wrapped around you.

They should bottle broth *patent pending*

My idea of fasting is the 15 minutes it takes me to drive to McDonalds, but good luck!
