What are the principles and benefits of an alkaline diet?

World-famous Hollywood stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson, and even Victoria Beckham do not hide their admiration for the alkaline diet. According to them, it was the right diet that helped them maintain their youth and figure.

In particular, the wife of the famous footballer has been eating according to the book Honestly Healthy Alkaline Program for more than a year, where the author recommends choosing food that becomes alkaline-forming when it enters the body, Marie Claire writes. OBOZREVATEL will tell you what an alkaline diet is and why it is useful (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).

It is believed that the body works optimally if the acid-base balance is maintained, so an increase in either of the two factors can provoke a deficiency of minerals and trace elements, fat accumulation, a decrease in immunity, and other problems.

Based on the statement of the alkaline diet supporters, most of the foods on store shelves are acid-forming, so you need to exclude them by giving more alkaline foods.

The list of alkaline-forming foods includes vegetables, berries and fruits, lemon, lime, tomatoes, grapefruit, pomegranate, raw spinach, nuts, algae, greens, cereals, bananas, raisins and other dried fruits, fresh ginger, coconut and almond milk, olive, coconut and flaxseed oil, avocado, etc.

At the same time, honey, all flour products, white rice, mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, artificial sweeteners, sweets, coffee, carbonated drinks, black tea, and almost all alcohol are considered "bad" foods. Adherents of the alkaline diet also reduce the amount of animal products.

Victoria Beckham is so firmly hooked on alkaline foods that she follows a daily diet where 80% are alkalizing foods and only 20% are acid-forming. However, most experts advise dividing your menu by 2/3.

"If you are actively losing weight, a lot of decay products are formed in the blood, and alkaline foods can contribute to additional detoxification," Iryna Turchynska, nutritionist at the Wellness Daily Live Premium Club, said.
