MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwired - October 13, 2016) - With over 3 million cases of type 2 diabetes in the U.S. every year and more than 36% of Americans battling obesity, serious health issues like heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer have become ubiquitous. Lack of proper exercise, unhealthy diets, and sedentary lifestyles contribute to increased health problems, making it crucial to pursue diets that promote digestion and a balanced lifestyle. Regulating certain types of food, in particular, makes an enormous difference in promoting weight loss and regulating health.
The Alkaline Diet revolves around the belief that certain foods can affect the pH or acidity levels of the human body. It discourages certain foods like meat, dairy, eggs, refined sugar, wheat and processed foods, which enhance acid production and are therefore viewed negatively. Alcohol and caffeine are also generally prohibited. Other types of food like fruits, vegetables, soybeans, tofu, nuts, seeds and legumes are considered alkaline-promoting and therefore encouraged. The focus of the Alkaline Diet, overall, is to reduce bodily acidity and promote alkalinity, which supposedly helps reduce body fat.
Dr. Rao, the resident medical expert at Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, discourages patients from adopting the Alkaline Diet, stating that it is not scientifically sound. According to him, "the body maintains an extremely narrow pH window, with blood pH ranging between 7.35 and 7.45," which means that 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."
Because the nuances of popular diets like the Alkaline Diet can be confusing, for experienced dieters as well as new ones, it is recommended to consult a doctor before adopting a new diet or major lifestyle change.
