Alkaline Diet, is it a popular trend? Or something worth trying. It has been picking up a lot of attention lately from everyone around, so today we are going to talk about it. The Alkaline Diet claims to improve your health, help you lose weight, and even fight cancer. The Diet is based on a theory that some foods cause your body to promote acid, which is harmful. They say if you eat certain foods or drink only certain things when you change the acid level in your body, your PH level will change as well. The pH scale measures how acidic or basic something is, on a scale of 0-14. Something alkaline is on the necessary end of the scale, or greater than 7. Now a big question upfront is, is it safe? The alkaline Diet reinforces healthy eating. The Diet recommends eating more vegetables, fruits, and drinking lots of water and cutting back on sugar, alcohol, meat, and processed foods. All of these things will help improve your overall health, help you lose weight, and even help lower your cancer risk. If you’re considering starting any diet, it’s essential to talk your doctor first. You should know that the changes you make to your diet will not impact the pH levels of your blood, but they could have a positive effect on your overall health.
