Acid Alkaline Diet
The acid alkaline diet, or
better known as the alkaline diet, can help you get back the vitality
and energy that you had when you were young. It has for me and many
thousands of my scubscibers and customers too.
But what is the acid alkaline diet exactly? Since is rise to prominence
in recent years, this healthy diet regime has been given so many
different definitions and has been used in so many different ways that
it’s hard to separate what’s fact and what’s made up.
Simply put, however, it’s a kind of dietary protocol in which you eat
foods that leave an alkaline residue when metabolised. It extensively
promotes keeping a diet that is mostly dominated by veggies, some
fruits, legumes, nuts, roots, and tubers.
determine what constitutes the acid alkaline diet
To help us understand what makes an effective acid alkaline diet, let’s
take a look at the two substances that make up this diet: acid and
alkaline. What is an acid? By scientific definition, which most of us
can probably recall from high school chemistry classes, acids are
substances that can turn litmus paper to red, has a sour taste, and
releases hydrogen ions chemically. The concentration of these hydrogen
ions determine the strength/weakness of acidic substances. Alkaline, on
the other hand, turns litmus paper blue, has a bitter taste, and
chemically accepts hydrogen ions. The stronger an alkaline substance
is, the higher its pH level will be.

There are four nutrition-related acid/alkaline
balance factors: the balance of acidity/alkalinity of food before they
are eaten, the balance of acid and alkaline in bodily fluids and the
blood, the effects of such food after they are metabolised, and the
acid and alkaline chemistry of digestion. The idea is to ingest meal
that is both acid and alkaline, as both have properties that are
beneficial to the body but at a 30:70 ratio respectively.
The problem is, most of our current eating habits in the Western world
are highly acid-forming. Like frequently drinking sodas and coffee
(probably two of the most popular and commonly consumed beverages all
over the world), plus eating dominantly meat-and-poultry meals, for
example. Add that to the fact that consuming alkaline-forming foods is
not exactly a popular choice. Acidosis happens, and catabolic damages
are increased and sped up, and anabolic repairs in the body are
The best way to avoid such metabolic disasters is to keep to a sensible
acid alkaline diet, which translates to eating less meat and dairy and
more vegetables, healthy Omega 3 oils and some fruits. By making these
changes to your diet, your body is able to bolster its immune system
more efficiently, plus, metabolism is improved as well. This not only
gives you more energy, it helps you lose weight—and keep it off—in a
healthy way. When you stick to an eating regimen as healthy as a
balanced, acid alkaline diet, you’re sure to increase your energy and
