Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Challenges the Highly-Advertised Benefits of the Alkaline Diet

COLUMBIA, SC--(Marketwired - October 06, 2016) - Supporters of the alkaline diet believe that shifting the body into a more alkaline state can have numerous health benefits. The concept of alkalizing the body through changes in diet and the consumption of a certain type of water to improve health has been around for some time, however much of the research shows that many of these claims are unfounded. Dr. Nishant Rao -- Medical Director of nationally recognized medical weight loss program, Diet Doc states that, "One of the greatest problems with this concept is that it isn't very scientifically sound. The body maintains an extremely narrow pH window, with blood pH ranging between 7.35 and 7.45." This means that even as you consume highly alkaline foods, your body will always regulate blood pH in this narrow window. Dr. Rao also explains that, "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."

Given these facts, Diet Doc doesn't stand by the concept of choosing food to manipulate blood pH because there isn't enough evidence to support that there are any actual changes that occur within the body. Dr. Rao continues, "Individuals may feel healthier when they start these types of diets for various reasons. For example, they may have suddenly eliminated dairy and they were unaware that there had actually been lactose intolerant and therefore make the mistake of correlating their improvements with the alkaline diet."

Instead of going alkaline, Diet Doc suggests that a diet that is rich in a variety of macro (protein, carbs, fat) and micro nutrients will provide the body all that it needs to be able to correctly buffer blood and optimize normal physiologic function. Their team of nutritional experts have created balanced diet plans which have resulted in weight loss of up to 20 pounds per month for their patients as well as the reduction of health risks such as cancer, diabetes and obesity.
