The Alkaline diet is taking over Hollywood and celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kirsten Dunst, Victoria Beckham, Jared Leto and Jennifer Aniston are big fans. But why are they eating alkaline food? For starters, a high-acid diet creates a breeding ground for disease and leads to poor health -- consequently making one look old and tired. With the ever growing fascination of youth and beauty in Hollywood, it is no surprise that these celebs are changing their lifestyle to be completely Alkaline. If you are experiencing aching joints, gaining weight, or craving sugar maybe your body is too acidic and you should consider it too.
Why should I start an Alkaline Diet?
For starters, alkaline foods improve your overall health. The alkaline diet is said to preserve muscle mass, slow the aging process and prevent headaches, the common cold, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, kidney stones, and osteoporosis. Proponents also claim that the alkaline diet can boost your energy levels and help you lose weight.
What's on the menu?
A lot of leafy greens like kale, sprouts, spinach, you should also include ancient grains such as quinoa and amaranth, and healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, and coconut oil.
Is there something I need to avoid?
Yes, you should stay away from acid-forming foods such as sugar, coffee, and refined carbs (white bread, pasta), alcohol and animal protein. Surprisingly, some foods which have an acid taste (lemons or apple cider vinegar) actually have an alkalizing effect on the body when they're digested.
Changing to an alkaline diet can mean limiting your caffeine intake to one espresso in the morning instead of three or eating only one protein meal a day (fish, mainly). Also, you need to increase your vegetable intake. But it’s not only about the food -- WATER is important too.
Drinking less acidic water (aka Alkaline) than the regular tap water can help neutralize the acid in your bloodstream and help your body absorb nutrients more effectively, leading to overall better health and wellbeing.
