My Diet Before Discovering the Alkaline Diet
My diet was approximately 95%+ acidic before discovering all of this information. I rarely ate vegetables, fruits, nuts, and others. I also thought diet soda was a great alternative to regular 46g sugar coke. Diet coke is WORSE for you that regular soda.
Some of my regular foods were the worst for your body
- Fast foods
- Sodas (Diet and Regular)
- Chips, Cookies, and other junk food.
The list goes on and on. No wonder I felt like crap all of the time.
My new diet includes:
Lots of salad. When we go to Wendy’s, Carls Jr, Costco, or other places, most serve salads now. I will always opt for the salad with a little something such as a 5 piece chicken nugget, or a bite of frys from the kids, etc.
My drinking water usually includes a pinch of baking soda. This will neutralize the acidity of filtered tap water to 7.0pH. You don’t need much baking soda for water, just a tiny bit. If you taste the baking soda in the water, you’ve added too much.
No soda. No beer. No chocolate.
Of course, I am still drinking ACV + baking soda twice a day. I drink it once in the morning an hour or so before breakfast and I also drink it an hour before dinner.
Now that I have a lot of energy, I have been working out a lot more. Usually to burn the excess energy I have. A good workout is good just before bed so I can sleep.
Being on the alkaline diet has given me the energy I used to get from drinking 3 cups of coffee, or 3 sodas in the afternoon. It is really amazing how great I feel!
