Which will result in faster weight loss… exercising 4 hours a day, or exercising moderately while eating an alkalizing diet? Most people will probably choose the former, since it’s always been taught that exercise automatically equals weight loss. However, science says otherwise, especially when you start learning about the importance of a healthy ph level.
Sound crazy? Well, once you understand the whole alkalizing process, it actually makes sense. Why? It all points to how the body eliminates acidic byproducts that build up in the blood. If it is fed healthy food, it will receive alkaline minerals that will excrete these products on their own. If it doesn’t receive healthy food, alkalizing never occurs, which means the byproducts stay in the body. When this happens, they contribute to weight gain by making fat cells harder to lose.
Where does exercise come into play? Well, if the body is over-exercised, the muscles produce lactic acid. If the body cannot eliminate the acid through alkalizing, the byproduct remains. And when this happens, the fat stays around, despite the increased activity.
Of course, don’t think that you have to eliminate exercise to achieve alkalizing. In fact, it’s actually the opposite, since sweat is one of the ways the body starts alkalizing. You just have to make sure that you don’t overdo it.
So, what’s the best way to determine whether or not you’re overdoing it? This is going to depend on your own body and activity level. For example, professional athletes could exercise for 10 hours a day, and still have no problems alkalizing, (provided they eat the right foods). But a sedentary person may only be able to exercise an hour a day to achieve proper alkalization.
Ultimately, you will want to go by what your body says. If your muscles feel sore, don’t force yourself to continue. Yes, you’ll lose calories, but you’ll also build up lactic acid, which is not helpful in the long run. So, be normal about it… if you feel tired, call it a day. You can make up for your lack of activity by eating vegetables, citric fruits and fish. These are foods that promote alkalizing.
