JACKSON, MS--(Marketwired - December 30, 2016) - With the rising obesity epidemic and wide prevalence of diets and weight loss programs in the market, dieters have a lot to choose from. Not all dietary programs are made equal, however, and sometimes, losing weight fast is not worth it because of the health consequences involved. A diet that has recently garnered attention, for instance, is the Alkaline Diet, which involves regulating foods that can supposedly affect the pH (acidity) levels of the body. By discouraging the consumption of acid-enhancing foods (like meat, dairy, eggs, refined sugar, wheat, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods), the Alkaline Diet aims to minimize acidity and thereby promote alkalinity, which supposedly helps reduce body fat. Foods like fruits, vegetables, soybeans, tofu, nuts, seeds and legumes, for instance, are considered "alkaline-promoting" and therefore encouraged.
If the Alkaline Diet sounds initially appealing, it must be noted that it is discouraged by prominent medical professionals like Dr. Nishant Rao, the resident medical expert at Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center. Dr. Rao states that the Alkaline Diet is not scientifically sound and because "the body maintains an extremely narrow pH window, with blood pH ranging between 7.35 and 7.45," consuming highly alkaline foods does not affect the body's natural pH regulation processes. Dr. Rao furthers, "If you consumed a high amount of acidic food, your body would offset it by buffering blood pH so that the actual levels never change." Instead of fad diets like the Alkaline Diet, which are not yet thoroughly researched, Diet Doc recommends doctor-supervised dieting and medical weight loss products that are custom-designed for an individual's dietary preferences and nutritional needs.
A potential alternative that is highly popular is the Paleo Diet, based on what early humans supposedly ate, which involves a strict diet of large amounts of fish and meat; relatively large amounts of fruits and vegetables; and complete exclusion of dairy, grain products and processed food. While the standard Paleo Diet can cause adverse effects due to extremely high levels of saturated fat and protein and deficiencies in Vitamin D and calcium intake, it can be an extremely balanced dietary choice when supervised by a doctor. Unlike largely untested and inflexible diets like the Alkaline Diet, the Paleo diet can be beneficial and help millions of people maintain a healthy weight while battling obesity.
