There has been so much talk lately of acidic versus alkaline diets and how excessive acidity in our bodies can not only cause all sorts of ailments but keep us fat. Here is a chart showing where many foods fall in this spectrum of acidic and alkaline. Surprisingly, many of the foods that we think of as acidic, such as tomatoes and lemons, actually promote the opposite effect in our bodies. It seems that all this chart does is illustrate what nutritionists have been telling us for years, more green vegetables and less sugar, carbs and empty calories. I have a plan, which I will outline above, to change my diet and hopefully my health, fitness, life in the process.
