Weight Loss Program

Step One: Eat for Your pH Type

How do you know which foods are right for you?

The typical American diet is composed of foods that are either highly

acidic or, once eaten, cause an acidic reaction in the body. Learning

whether you are overly acidic or more alkaline is the first step.

For example, overly acidic women need more carbohydrates to feel

their best; those who tend toward alkalinity feel better eating

more protein. Once you begin eating foods that properly nourish

your system, you will find that you’ll eat less overall.

If you are naturally alkaline, you are likely

to have strong bones and muscles, high energy, and healthy digestion

and immune function. Your body has large alkaline mineral reserves

and produces many alkaline buffers like bicarbonate, so you have

more flexibility in your diet:

  • You can eat a nutrient-rich,

    more acidic diet.

  • You probably feel best on a protein-based

    diet with several servings of game, free-range poultry, or fish

    a day. I recommend fish for its health benefits.

  • Lemon or vinegar dressings and

    acidic fruits and fruit juices don’t upset your stomach. Nor do

    goat cheese, yogurt, vinegar, olives, and olive oil—all components

    of the Mediterranean diet.

  • As you have a tendency to put

    on weight, try to avoid dairy products, sugary desserts, caffeinated

    beverages, alcohol, and soft drinks.

If you are acidic, you are likely to have

small bones and muscles, a weak digestive tract, frequent muscle

aches and pains, a tendency toward colds and allergies, and you

probably feel sluggish in the morning and brain-fogged and lethargic

after a high-protein meal.

  • Choose more alkaline sources of protein, like

    fish, shellfish, and tofu. Eat cold-water fish like tuna or salmon

    once or twice a week.

  • Plan more meals around vegetables, whole grains,

    and legumes, rather than meats and wheat products. Experiment

    with non-wheat flours such as rice, millet, quinoa, or soy.

  • Reduce your intake of acidic foods such as lemon

    juice, tomatoes, caffeine, or vinegar, which can cause upset stomach.
