The Acid Alkaline Diet
Foods are classified as acid-forming or alkalizing depending on the effect they have on the body.
Acid-forming diets lead to acid indigestion that eventually creates a condition known as chronic acidosis, an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissues. With time it may interrupt all cellular activities and functions, eventually compromising the immune system, and leading to all sorts of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, memory loss, nutrient deficiencies and poor athletic performance.
Shifting to an alkaline diet will and eating specific foods that make your body more alkaline, can protect against those conditions as well as support a healthy weight loss: Lots of fruits, vegetables, and lots of water.
Avoiding sugar, alcohol, and processed foods is healthy weight-loss advice, too.
Some of the High Alkaline Foods Include:
• Alkalizing Vegetables: Beets, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Lettuce, Onions, Peas, Peppers, Spinach
• Alkalizing Fruits: Apple, Banana, Berries, Cantaloupe, Grapes, Melon, Lemon, Orange, Peach, Pear, Watermelon
