What is the most common reason why people gain weight? If you’re like most Americans, you might believe it’s because a person lacks willpower and just eats all day. Well, according to many doctors, what causes obesity is not self-control, but rather a low ph level. When the ph level is adjusted, the body is able to excrete the chemical byproducts responsible for holding onto fat. This process is known as alkalizing.
To get the body in an alkalizing mode, a person must eat the right type of foods. Green vegetables are especially good, because they contain the alkaloids the body needs to maintain a healthier ph level. Omega 3 fats, derived from fish and some plants, can also jumpstart the alkalizing process.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are foods that negatively interfere with alkalizing. Beef, chicken and dairy products are a few examples. Surprisingly, so are mushrooms. Despite the fact that they are high in zinc and germanium, mushrooms by nature have toxins that produce too many acids in the body. As a result, the ph level gets thrown off… just like it would if a person ate less ‘healthier’ foods.
Sodas are also horrible for the alkalizing process. It doesn’t matter if they are regular or diet. As long as they have carbonation, they make the alkalizing process more challenging. That’s why vegetable juice should be consumed when one has an urge to drink something other than water.
Why vegetable juice over fruit juice? Well, if you want the best alkalizing results, vegetables usually contain more alkaline compounds than fruit. But this is not to say that fruit juice should be eliminated, especially if someone is in the mood for something sweet. They should just make sure that they consume juices containing citrus fruit, such as lemonade. Again, it’s not as good as vegetable juice, but it does contain some alkalizing ability.
In conclusion, if you want to lose weight, focus on consuming a more alkaline diet. If you do this, it’s possible you’ll be able to lose 30 pounds a month without starving yourself or exercising 8 hours a day.
