Several times a year, I do a three-day bone broth fast. I cook up a huge pot of broth and sip cupful’s of it throughout my fast. After finishing these fasts, I notice that my skin, especially on my face, is glowing, firm, and youthful. These amazing changes are not the result of some expensive skincare product.

I recently returned from several conferences where everyone was super-excited about ketogenic dieting. If you’re not familiar, the keto approach is a high-fat, very low-carb style of eating.

I decided to do my own research on this curious subject that traditional keto dieters have been complaining about.
I have been practicing fasting for years now and view it as part of my ongoing commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Because of its scientifically proven weight-loss results and other significant health benefits, I have specifically incorporated a form of it called “ intermittent fasting” into my Keto-Green ™diet and lifestyle program.
