This is so exciting! My fellow blogger, Ann Marie at Cheeseslave.com (that’s her to the right), is hosting a bone broth challenge for the month of July. Are you in?
The inspiration behind the challenge was a quote from Cate Shanahan’s book, Deep Nutrition:
“To get rid of cellulite, combine exercise with a diet full of healthy, natural fats (including animal fat) and collagen-rich stocks. This will send the message that you want your body to replace the saggy fat pockets with smooth, toned curves.”
Does this prescription sound familiar?
The challenge begins today when Ann Marie posts the announcement at Cheeseslave.com. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post every time you consume bone broth in the month of July. Even a reduction sauce or gravy counts, or homemade jell-o made from gelatin (I have to try that!).
At the end of the month, Ann Marie will be giving over $200 worth of prizes to the participants with the most points. As an added bonus, our host promised to provide a recipe for poutine during the challenge, too. I’ve heard good things about this Canadian national treasure and I wouldn’t mind trying it myself.
I’m excited to see if any more cellulite success stories will come out of this challenge. We’ve heard from several women already who lost their cellulite when switching to a Real Food diet. Erica, our fellow cellulite investigator, tracked down the following two success stories from previous posts on Cheeseslave’s blog:
“So I’ve never been fat, but always had cellulite on my thighs. About 2 months ago I started having broth with every breakfast. Its funny you post this, because 2 days ago I realized all my cellulite was gone. Like…all of it. Best thing I ever did was change our diet.”
“i’ve read from a few sources that cellulite is toxins stored under the skin. my skinny little 3 yr old and i both had it and it’s almost gone after 2 1/2 months on GAPS (and i still have about 15 more pounds to lose)! there may be something to that…and if anyone knows some of those sources, reference away. ,”
(A main part of the GAPS diet is daily bone broth.)
I will see if my fluoride detox symptoms will allow me to keep up with the challenge, but I’m certainly going to try. Who’s going to join us?!
I’m still figuring out how to set up our forum, but feel free to come over and say hi while I’m working on it. It’s always nice to hear from my fellow cellulite investigators!
