Are you looking to gain the benefits of starting out on an alkaline diet plan? Many people have written testimonials to the fact that they’re gaining enormous health benefits from these types of diets, anywhere from increased energy to weight loss to arthritis relief or keeping headaches and even cysts at bay. Indeed, there seem to be a ton of people out there getting benefits from keeping their body’s pH at or near 7.4%. So the question is, what do you have to do to keep your alkalinity in check?
It can be a real pain in the beginning, but by keeping track of what you eat in advance, you can really make a big change in your lifestyle. Furthermore, you’ll find that over time, you’ll get faster and more comfortable at knowing what you can and can’t eat. Something that often helps is writing a list of your meals at the beginning of the week by sitting down for an hour with a list of foods or recipes. From there, you can just follow the list so you won’t have to constantly be thinking when you’re hungry.
The foods that are most commonly high in alkalinity are certain fruits and vegetables. Some of my favorite high-alkaline fruits include applies, oranges, blackberries, watermelon, and bananas. For vegetables, I tend to rely heavily on carrots, celery, baked potatoes, mushrooms, and eggplant. There are a ton of others, but to be honest all you need are a few staples and your diet will be up and running. Once you’re on the diet, you can begin including some more variety into it, but the important thing is to get started quickly and easily. Over time, tweaking your diet will bring you to a fully rewarding alkaline lifestyle.
You can’t go eating only alkaline foods, because your body does need a balance of some acidity. A good rule of thumb would be going 75% alkaline foods, and 25% foods with low acidity. You’re almost never going to want to eat the highly acidic foods, but to be honest an occasional treat is not a huge problem. The bottom line is that it’s about balance, just like anything else. Some people are quite successful by planning a diet where on 6 days of the week they eat a strict alkaline diet, and on the 7th day they will treat themselves to some of the acidic “no-no” foods so that they feel a reward for all the healthy eating that they accomplished throughout the week.
In this article, you learned the basics of how to get started on an alkaline diet plan. By taking a couple of the foods in the list above and planning a simple meal for the evening, you’ll be on your way. Then you can take a look at our Alkaline Diet Food Chart to start mixing up some more complicated meals. Ready to take the next step?
