Alkaline Diet Facts

The pH of your body is most directly influenced by what you eat and drink. An often fast paced lifestyle causes most diets to revolve around cooked and processed foods, as well as bottled and prepacked beverages. Unfortunately, the majority of such foods and beverages are acid-based or convert into acid as soon as they are ingested.

Although the consumption of a highly acidic diet is often more convenient, it causes the metabolic processes in the body to exert a tremendous amount of energy just to maintain the optimal blood pH of 7.35-7.45. Consuming a diet that is higher alkaline helps to neutralize the build up of acid in your body and frees some of the energy of your body for other functions such as your immune system, cell regeneration, and optimal functioning of your organs.

Converting from an acid lifestyle to an alkaline lifestyle can appear difficult or challenging until you have enough information on the different methods and approaches. One method is simply to eat a diet that includes more raw fruits and vegetables. This is often referred to as the "raw diet" or "raw vegan diet". Although not a diet at all, it is commonly known that raw (uncooked and unprocessed) fruits and vegetables have a much higher alkaline content than cooked or processed foods.

Another method involves making fewer changes to what you eat every day, but instead consuming more liquids that are high in alkaline content. In fact, drinking alkaline liquids is a faster way to neutralize acid buildup in your system since it requires very little in the way of digestion.

Since the body consists of 60%-70% water, it should be no surprise that the pH of the liquids you drink is very important. Only 20% of the liquid your body requires each day comes from the food you eat. That means 80% of the liquid must come from what you drink.

The following charts provide references on how to immediately recognize whether you are consuming something that is acid or alkaline and how you can begin to increase the alkalinity in your diet.
