What is Alkaline Lifestyle?
Maybe you ARE familiar with it but don’t know the specifics. I call it a lifestyle because it’s NOT a diet, it’s a Way of Life. So it’s high time we spread the word about how to live this lifestyle and how to enjoy delicious food while youre at it.
It’s pretty simple, really. Essentially the goal is to bring your bodys pH “acid versus alkaline“ into balance by consuming a higher volume of alkaline foods and fluids. Ideally 70% to 80% of each daily meal should be alkaline foods combined with 2-4 liters of alkalizing water through out the day. Super hydrating daily with water and green juices is very energizing and flushes unwanted toxins and is a super way to flush fat cells too. The 70-80% portion for alkaline foods is basically vegetables, mostly raw-some boiled. The 20%-30% acidic balance can be made up of cool or cooked foods such as whole grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, proteins-plant or animal-preferably organic.
The least processed food possible is the key. In a nut shell, one could easily transition to this lifestyle diet just by increasing their raw greens or gently warmed veggies to 70-80% on your plate at lunch and dinner and fresh veggie juice in the morning.
An Alkaline balanced body is healthy, vibrant, and energetic, free of sickness and disease. An Acidic body is one that is degenerating, breaking down, showing a myriad of symptoms of ill health from the simplest form being a cold or a rash all the way to diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. We all know 1-5 people or more that are ill or dying of these or many other terrible diseases that can be solved with a change in their lifestyle and diet. High levels of stress, negative thoughts, lack of exercise and poor shallow breathing (which most of us do all day long) all play a key role in this lifestyle and are acid forming. Changing your diet will improve your pH and reduce your symptoms to a certain degree, but you must also manage and balance these other pieces of the puzzle to reach optimal health. The most amazing thing about this alkaline lifestyle is that it is measurable because it is a science.
