List of Acid vs. Alkaline Foods

Posted on : 19-07-2009 | By : Stephan, The Alkaline Diet Guy | In : Alkaline Foods: Alkalizing Your Body, Why the Alkaline-Acid Food List is impotant for the Alkaline Diet

4

Alkaline generating foods should be 80 % of our daily diet and acid generating foods should be about 20 %.

Today most North American citizens DO have a 80 % ACIDIC diet.

Your change to a healthy diet should be also healthy!

Please do not create more stress in your life in trying to forcefully avoid all the “unhealthy” acidic stuff!
Do not create war in yourself. A good change is for the good and it should come from a deep fundament inside. I should be for love not for putting pressure on yourself. So slowly, slowly change your for the better.

20% of your diet is still supposed to be acidic. If you would eat just alkaline you would be soon getting very tired of life. And I mean it: we need acid foods. Otherwise we will be soon very unhealthy too. And it will start with getting physically tired.

As I often say: Life is all about balance! Enjoy it!

So, here is the list of alkaline and acidic generating foods:

– As a rule of thumb, in one day, balance with 80% Alkaline-generating food and 20% Acid-generating food
