A list of alkaline foods can be found in any of Dr. Robert O. Young’s books. Dr. Young has a few books on the market, i.e., The pH Miracle, The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, The pH Miracle for Diabetes, Sick & Tired and a few more. My personal favorites are Sick & Tired and The pH Miracle for Weight Loss. The reason why I like the weight loss book is because Dr. Young breaks out all foods into 6 categories: highly alkaline, moderately alkaline, mildly alkaline, highly acidic, moderately acidic & mildly acidic. I use this list to help me determine what I will buy at the grocery store and what I will each day.
These books can be found at any major book store. I have also listed them here.
If you are looking for what to shop for or a list of better food choices, you can find them by clicking on the links, however your best bet is to get one of the books so you have a complete list. These books also contain recipes. Again, I recommend the weight loss book, The pH Miracle for Weight Loss.
With regards to the diet itself, it’s not the easiest diet in the world to switch over to. I highly recommend that you first become aware of what foods are acidic and what foods are alkaline and then slowly, over time, start to knock off different food groups, switching over to a more alkaline alternative.
This is not to say you can’t indulge every now and then and eat your favorite acidic foods, it’s just that you need to decrease how often you do this. If you are like me, you will probably find that most of the foods you love and crave are on the list of highly or moderately acidic foods. You need to become aware of this list, identify the highly and moderately acidic foods and decrease, or get off them altogether, over time. Sorry, you probably didn’t want to hear this, but it’s a fact.
If you can eat pH Miracle foods on a regular basis and ensure you are drinking enough water, preferably with a concentrated green powder like SuperGreens, and an alkaline drop like Prime pH, you will definitely feel better, potentially might lose some weight, think clearer, sleep better at night and will just be in better overall health.
The other important thing about getting the books is that it really is important that you understand the science behind pH Miracle foods, the pH scale, the pH value of foods, the energetic value of foods and the acid/alkaline balance. You can check out a video I did here that explains much of this. The books are the best way to go though.
If you are like me, once you understand this information and internalize it, you determine that you are “in control” of your health and can take the appropriate action to ensure you maintain your health, or even, get it back.
