Foods For The Alkaline Diet

Successfully adopting an Alkaline Lifestyle begins with making smart choices when it comes to the foods you eat. It is important to know which types of food leave traces of alkaline or acid in the body, as this affects your overall pH balance. According to many health experts, people’s diets should be composed of 70 to 80 percent alkaline forming food and 20 to 30 percent acid forming food.

So what are alkaline and acid forming foods? Acid forming foods are those traditionally associated with increasing inflammation in the body. According to Dr. Mehmet Oz, “Inflammation, a process meant to heal, can often become a danger; chronic inflammation causes heart attacks, stroke and even cancer.”

On the other hand, alkaline forming foods are those that oxygenate cells, assist in recovery from inflammatory processes and aid in the maintenance of good health. Thanks to alkaline foods, the body is better able to fend off chronic illnesses. Eating a diet rich in alkaline foods also facilitates optimum health and wellness by allowing the body to get rid of toxins and giving you more boundless energy.

Under normal circumstances, the body can and will regulate its pH levels to slightly alkaline, but this alkalinity is often achieved at the expense of valuable bone minerals. Thus the kind of foods people eat greatly affects the pH balance of the body. This is why people must be mindful of the foods they consume on a daily basis.

Typical acid forming foods include alcoholic beverages, soda, tobacco, coffee, white sugar, refined salt, artificial sweeteners, antibiotics (and most other drugs), white flour products (including pasta), seafood, eggs,  chocolate, corn, candy, popcorn, white vinegar, barley, most boxed cereals, cheese, most beans, flesh meats like beef, most types of bread, and other processed foods. When you consider the number of processed foods typically eaten each day in most industrialized nations, you realize that the average person has too much acid in their body.

Thankfully, there are many alkaline forming foods to enjoy! A very brief list of foods that are considerably alkaline include watermelon, lemons, cantaloupe, celery, limes, mango, honeydew, papaya, parsley, seaweed, seedless grapes, watercress, asparagus, kiwi, pears, pineapple, raisins, vegetable, juices, apples, apricots, alfalfa, sprouts, avocados, bananas, garlic, ginger, peaches, nectarines, grapefruit, oranges, most, herbs, peas, lettuce, broccoli, and cauliflower.

Notice that these foods items are mostly plant based, fresh, raw, whole foods that have high water content and nutritional value.
