Quote:Alkaline Diets

The Promise

It's a pitch Hollywood celebs love: that the alkaline diet -- also known as the alkaline ash diet or alkaline acid diet -- can help you lose weight and avoid problems like arthritis and cancer. The theory is that some foods, like meat, wheat, refined sugar, and processed foods, cause your body to produce acid, which is bad for you.

Eating specific foods that make your body more alkaline, on the other hand, can protect against those conditions as well as shed pounds. The alkaline diet really rocketed into the news when Victoria Beckham tweeted about an alkaline diet cookbook in January 2013.
What You Can and Can't Eat

Most fruits and vegetables, soybeans and tofu, and some nuts, seeds, and legumes are alkaline-promoting foods, so they're fair game.

Dairy, eggs, meat, most grains, and processed foods, like canned and packaged snacks and convenience foods, fall on the acid side and are not allowed.

Don't bring out the elementary bit about stomach is highly acidic stuff that demonstrates about your ignorance.
Quote:Level of Effort: High

You'll be cutting out a lot of foods you may be used to eating.

Limitations: Many foods are off-limits, and so are alcohol and caffeine.

Cooking and shopping: You can get fruits and vegetables at the grocery store. It may take a while to learn how to prep and cook your meals when you use fresh foods.

In-person meetings: No.

Exercise: Not required.
Does It Allow for Restrictions or Preferences?

Vegetarians and vegans: This diet is mostly to completely vegetarian. It also works for vegans, in that dairy is off-limits.

Gluten-free: The diet excludes wheat, but to avoid gluten completely, you'll need to check food labels carefully, as gluten is not just in wheat.

Besides wheat, the diet nixes most of the other major triggers for food allergies, including milk, eggs, peanuts, walnuts, fish, and shellfish. It's also good for people who are trying to avoid fat and sugar.
What Else You Should Know

Cost: Many web sites with information about the alkaline diet also sell courses, books, supplements, and alkaline-infused water, food, and drinks. You do not need to buy these things to follow the alkaline diet. There are many free alkaline food charts online that list foods you can buy at the grocery store.

Support: This is a diet you do on your own.
What Dr. Melinda Ratini Says:

Does It Work?

Maybe, but not for the reasons it claims.

First, a little chemistry: A pH level measures how acid or alkaline something is. A pH of 0 is totally acidic, while a pH of 14 is completely alkaline. A pH of 7 is neutral. Those levels vary throughout your body. Your blood is slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45. Your stomach is very acidic, with a pH of 3.5 or below, so it can break down food. And your urine changes, depending on what you eat -- that's how your body keeps the level in your blood steady.

The alkaline diet claims to help your body maintain its blood pH level. In fact, nothing you eat is going to substantially change the pH of your blood. Your body works to keep that level constant.

But the foods you're supposed to eat on the alkaline diet are good for you and will support a healthy weight loss: lots of fruits and vegetables, and lots of water. Avoiding sugar, alcohol, and processed foods is healthy weight-loss advice, too.

As to the other health claims, there's some early evidence that a diet low in acid-producing foods like animal protein (such as meat and cheese) and bread and high in fruits and veggies could help prevent kidney stones, keep bones and muscles strong, improve heart health and brain function, reduce low back pain, and lower risk for type 2 diabetes. But researchers aren't sure of some of these claims yet.

People who believe in the alkaline diet say that though acid-producing foods shift our pH balance for only a little while, if you keep shifting your blood pH over and over, you can cause long-lasting acidity.

Don't understand don't just utter. Plant-based food is alkaline in that it can cause your body to turn your blood and body fluid into alkaline. Even you take lemon, which appear to be sour and acidic, but it is alkaline food. Many western-trained nutritionists can understand this concept nowadays.

Take my example, in my annual health screen inclusive of cholesterol and blood pH, my pH value is nearly 8 normally. Isn't this alkaline? or acidic as you said?

Big Grin

Thats correct.

The acidity and alkalinity are not the same as what you get from litmus papers or your taste buds, but rather how you body reacts to the food.

Lemon is a good example.
Thats why, there are many goondus acting smart. No read books.
You have to keep your delicate PH between 7.35 to 7.45.
This is easier achieved thr. monitoring your sugar intakes(carb +sugar)

Avoid non stick cooking pan.
Use Stainless Steel or Cast Iron or scratch-resistant anodized aluminum.
Nevertheless advisable to change after several years of use.

Stainless steel, etc ok but be careful with Aluminium as it is known to cause brain retardation or dementia. I do notice the word "scratch-resistant" al.

anodized increase corrosion resistance so much more scratch-resistant
than normal aluminium.

Kidney failure sour to 3rd highest in the world after Taiwan n Japan, as more suffer from diabetes, n high blood pressure.
