Bloating on Keto? Bone Broth Turmeric Recipe – Thomas DeLauer
Here’s the thing, the ketogenic diet can be a little bit tough on the gut, and here’s why. A lot of times, people don’t have the bile salts built up to truly break down the fats that you’re consuming. See, the true ketogenic diet you should be consuming three to one or four to one fats to protein. That’s a lot of fat, and if you’re not accustomed to that, it can be a little bit difficult on your body. You might find yourself getting a little bit bloated. You might even find yourself constipated or sometimes the opposite. It’s usually an indicator that your body’s not producing enough in the way of bile just yet, but give it time, it gets there.
What I’ve done is, I’ve come up with a recipe that utilizes a lot of different ingredients that helps this whole process out. If you’re new to the ketogenic diet, it’s going to help you get into ketosis a little bit faster, simply because it’s going to give you the necessary components that you need to start breaking down those fats so your liver can turn them into ketones. Then, if you’re already in ketosis, you can utilize this to get a little boost out of your digestion and ultimately use more of those fats so you get more ketones. It’s good for beginners and for intermediate and advanced. Now, if you haven’t already, I want to make sure you subscribe to my channel.

Super simple recipe with this one. First thing we’re going to do is we’re go ahead and we’re going to heat up some bone broth. Those of you that follow my channel know that I am a huge, huge fan of Kettle and Fire. I know Justin over there personally, good friend of mine, so I always offer my subscribers a discount. I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to add a whole carton of Kettle and Fire beef bone broth. Here’s the thing. I’m using the beef one because it’s higher in collagen. Collagen is not just about the joint health, it’s not just about the mucosal layer of the gut. I talk about that a lot, but there’s an entirely different aspect that isn’t talked about a lot.
That’s the fact that glycine, which is the predominant amino acid that is in collagen, makes up over a third of collagen, is huge, in fact it’s critical to the production of bile salts. Bile salts are secreted by the liver and the gallbladder to ultimately break down the fats. The bile salts literally emulsify fat. Fat doesn’t just absorb into the system, it has to be emulsified. Just like when you oil in water, it doesn’t mix. The bile salts give it something to actually react to, so we can absorb the fats. A lot of times, we don’t have enough bile built up when we first start a ketogenic diet, so this collagen is critical to the bile production, thereby critical to the fat metabolism. All I’m doing is I’m heating that up, nothing fancy.
Then what I’m going to do is I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to take some raw ginger, and I’m just going to take a couple little shavings of this. I don’t care if it’s got the peel or anything, I just want to get probably about a tablespoon of raw ginger by the time it’s all said and done. Don’t worry if you get big chunks in there because you’re going to end up simmering it and you’re going to filter it out ultimately. There’s a big reason that I’m putting ginger in here, and it’s not just because it tastes good.
The whole idea behind ginger is it contains something known as gingerols, which I’ve talked about in videos a lot. Gingerols do something interesting. They reduce nuclear factor kappa B, which is sort of the master inflammatory hormone. Basically, what it’s doing is by reducing nuclear factor kappa B, we’re reducing a lot of the other inflammatory signals in the body. Over 400 different inflammatory responses respond through nuclear factor kappa B. If we reduce nuclear factor kappa B, we’re basically turning off the master switch for inflammation, so it’s very, very important. Also, gingerol is a natural appetite suppressant, so very, very powerful there. Overall, just very easy on the gut, reducing the inflammation in the gut.
I’ll see you next time,
