Get Rid of Cellulite With This One Delicious Food…
This was really shocking to me…
I’m sitting on a dock this summer two of my dear friends – who both have smokin’ bodies!
Naturally – I want to know the secret…
I ask the woman – “how DO you keep such a lovely figure?”
(What I really meant was, “where’s YOUR cellulite?”)
She began to humbly tell me about her moderate exercise routine and another fascinating secret she attributes to legs that look like a woman ten, or even twenty years younger than her.
That fascinating secret: bone broth.
So I did a little research and here’s what I found out…
Bone Broth Gets Rid of Cellulite… And It’s Extremely Healthy
First – bone broth is FULL of vitamins.
Most the essential vitamins and nutrients are found IN the bones.
When you go to your butcher – ask for bones for stock or bone broth.
He or she will know what you’re looking for.
The best bones are “knuckle bones”, or bones with joints.
Key Ingredient to Getting Rid of Cellulite
To fight cellulite: the collagen and marrow from the bones are what you’re looking for.
In fact, when your broth is chilled, it will solidify because of the collagen.
The first time I saw this it freaked me out – I thought it was because of fat content!
But when my mother in-law grabbed a slice of lemon and smeared the chilled soup on it – she assured me that it was because of the healthful properties of collagen.
Most importantly – collagen fights cellulite.
Collagen is a protein that is part of the process in your body to create connective tissue in your skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
Weakened collagen makes cellulite stick out more!
Moreover – when you experience a significant weight gain, or LOSS – the changes that occur in your skin makes it thinner, thereby making cellulite more apparent.
Eating collagen will help reconnect fat tissues and get rid of cellulite in your body.
Benefits of Bone Broth
Collagen isn’t the only benefit of bone broth.
- Repairs and restores your gut.
- Ditching Dairy? You’ll acquire as much calcium as you need from bone broth as you would in a diet full of dairy.
- Makes your hair, teeth, and nails radiate health and vibrancy.
- Detoxifies your body.
- Makes wrinkles disappear
- Reduces CELLULITE
How to make Bone Broth
Here’s my recipe…
- Meat bones (2 lbs)
- 1 liter metabolism-boosting Wu-Long Tea
- 1 Onion
- 4 Stalks Celery
- 3 Carrots
- Garlic… lotsa garlic
- Black Peppercorn
- 1/8 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- Filtered Water
How To Cook:
- Veggies & Bones: I start by sautéing one white onion and one or two whole, peeled bulbs of garlic in a pan. Once the onions are lightly browned, I add chopped carrots and celery, apple cider vinegar and 2 pounds of meat bones. The vinegar is used to break up the bones and release their nutrients and marrow into the broth. The vinegar is a critical part of the soup!
- Spices: I don’t generally add spices because I sometimes make mild soups like avgolemono, and other times I want to make a soup loaded with unique spices that I don’t want in my ‘stock’ soup. I do add cracked black peppercorns, no matter what I do with the soup – I always love a little kick!
- Water: When adding the celery, carrots, and bones I also add my filtered water (cold) and one liter of Oolong Tea. Then I try to let it simmer for about 3 days. I generally turn the pot off at night… But don’t open the lid! (Then the heat will escape!) ** If you really want to crank up your metabolism – try adding one liter of Oolong tea in your bone broth. Okuma’s Wu-Long Tea has NO artificial flavors or chemicals – so it’s taste is pure enough to use in soups, gravys, and a plethora of other great foods!
- Soup Day: Strain the broth and discard the celery, bones, garlic, onion, carrots, and peppercorn.
Important: I always remember to store the broth in a glass container because of the toxic effects of BPA in many plastic containers.
How To Use Bone Broth Soup
My husband and I habitually make bone broth soup and enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even as a drink!
It’s a delicious way to begin your day while you’re normally enjoying your first cup of Wu-Long.
It can also be added to cooking for flavor – or made into any number of delicious soups.
Enjoy it warm – the flavors and aromas have an incredible calming effect – especially when it’s cold outside!

LOVE this recipe . I make my own bone broth all the time matter of fact I just got a 1/4 of a grass fed organic beef and asked for all the bones to make my own broth. I never thought of using the tea in the broth what a great idea. I make the baked apples all the time with the tea and love it . Please more recipes…….

Penny, I made a printable pdf version for you. Email me at email@example.com and I’ll shoot it over to you 🙂
WhAt do u sauté veggies in at beginning of bone broth recipe?5
I saute the veggies to add flavor to the broth – I enjoy the taste of onions and garlic. Plus the carrots make it a bit sweeter, too. Because i usually use my bone broth as a stock for other soups – the veggies are a good base. Here’s a great article that’s quick and easy that explains the benefits of onions and garlic: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/leo-galland-md/health-benefits-garlic_b_900784.html.
Leave it simmer for 3 days???????
Yes. I turn it off at night and turn it on about 8 hours later when I wake up – but I do let it simmer for 3 days in order to get the full benefits of the bone broth.
Not very practical for vegetarians. Any alternatives?
Hi Patti! Very good point! I was a vegetarian for 7 years – which is why I thought of the Oolong Tea as an amazing alternative to plain old water. There are some incredible seaweed vegetarian miso recipes that are quite tasty – and incredibly healthy. I don’t know of anything that fights cellulite quite like bone broth, though. I will do a lot of research and let you know what I find 😉
I know as a trained chef that this is standard for making stock by most culinary professionals with the exception of the addition of the tea, I do like that Idea. I also know that collagen does break up cellulite as I work with a little known product that has been shown to break cellulite down as well as restore Hyaluronic Acid through out our body, including to all the joints. It is amazing when seeing the before and after pictures of what collagen does when it is added to our body regularly as it is the the most abundant protein in our body.
Thank you for this insight – “Chef” Jim. I appreciate your feedback and admire – very much – what you do! Can you email me a private message about this product you’re referring to that breaks down cellulite? Email me at Stephanie@WuLongForLife.com. Keep in touch 😉
Can you tell me what the product is that Chef Jim is talking about (that breaks down cellulite) and
restores Hyaluranic Acid through out our bodies?
Jacqui – he is referring to Bone Broth. Here is the link to my article on bone broth: http://www.wulongforlife.com/blog/get-rid-cellulite-one-delicious-food/ Bon apetit!
Please tell me the amount of water you start out with and do you add water to the soup during the simmering process? in 3 days doesnt the water simmer away?
Do you have CELLULITE?
Hi Jacqui! I do add a bit of water during the simmering process. The water doesn’t simmer away. But not a lot of it simmers away when it’s on low heat.
I had rid my body of cellulite until very recently – which is why *I* discovered bone broth soup! After an unfortunate miscarriage, I suffered a herniated disk in my back and was unable to sit, walk, or especially workout for months. After so many months unable to move, plus the hormonal and emotional stress – I suffered from some cellulite! I combatted the cellulite with a diet full of reasonable foods, gradual exercise – i.e. walking my dog once my back felt better – tons of oolong and bone broth. In fact, right about the time I healed was the time I became CEO of Okuma. I decided after that experience that I wanted not just to write and research health for other people – but to take the reigns of a movement like Okuma and devote my life full time to helping people stay healthy in order to avoid – or at lease cope with – what I had been through. I relied so much on exercise before my herniated disk that my body fell prey to cellulite when I wasn’t moving much – at all. That is why I am so passionate about healthy foods and lifestyles – in case you’re too busy, or too injured – to workout! So… I am delighted to say that I am cellulite free once again! Our bodies will go through changes – especially with pregnancy… or miscarriages. But the important thing is to get back up on the horse – pour a cup of Wu-Long and smile in the mirror. Look at yourself and know that you are beautiful – and you WILL achieve what you believe. Then take the first step. I wish you the best of luck in your journey to be healthy, cellulite-free – and most importantly – HAPPY!! ~Stephanie
I get the simmering for 3 days, but do you leave it out at night? Won’t things spoil? Or should I put the pot in the fridge over night?
Kim, because the pot and the broth are so hot, they are fine overnight as long as nobody opens the lid! I do not put it in the fridge overnight. It stays warm enough in the pot with a lid on. Plus – it’s only about 8 hours that it is sitting on the burner without the heat. If you feel more comfortable, you can put it in a crock pot to simmer overnight, too.
Does your tea contain caffeine?
Hi Sue! One cup has only about the equivalent of a third what is found in a cup of coffee.
