The Alkaline Diet

Lose weight and feel great by eating the alkaline way

She’s not called The Body for no reason, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change anytime soon.

At 52 Elle Macpherson looks absolutely incredible, toned, slim and healthy, something attributes to The Alkaline Diet.

“I noticed changes in just two weeks,” she revealed. “I had more vitality, my skin wasn’t dry, I stopped craving sugar, my mood stabilised, everything became more balanced. A welcome byproduct was losing weight around my middle.

“It’s really simple: Eat vegetables, fruits and lean protein, a little bit of dark chocolate – if that’s what you like – and lots of water. Nothing too extreme; it’s all about balance and trying a little bit every day.”

Are you looking to increase your energy, get clearer skin and shed pounds? It might be time that the Alkaline Diet made it onto your radar.

According to the Alkaline Diet, the digestive process causes foods to become either alkaline or acidic, which can be measured by their pH levels (remember those litmus papers from school?). You’d be surprised at where some of the foods end up- lemons are actually alkaline when digested while dairy actually becomes highly acidic!

If you suffer from a bloated stomach, feel tired or so hungry that you often eat too quickly, you could be over doing it on the acidic foods. The Alkaline Diet recommends cutting back on acid forming foods, like dairy, wheat and meat, and embracing healthier, more alkaline foods like vegetables and whole grains. Tipping your body towards a more alkaline state can help with weight, mood, digestive and skin problems.
