The Alkaline Diet: Does it Really Work for Weight Loss?

Alkaline Diet, Alkaline Ash Diet, Alkaline Acid Diet and Acid Ash Diet are the various names of diets that come under the umbrella of alkaline diets. The premise these diets are based on is that certain foods can affect the acidity or pH of the body, helping prevent the onset of diseases and even treat them. Robert Young wrote a book The pH Miracle in 2010 which put it on the map. This was followed by a photograph that Victoria Beckham tweeted with The Alkaline Diet Cookbook in 2013, and Kate Hudson’s book in 2016 Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body that added to the hype and interest for this style of eating. Adding to its health benefits of protection against cancer and arthritis, what shot it to fame was the universal pitch that never fails -weight loss!

According to the proponents of this diet, acidity causing foods lead to an increased risk of diseases and an alkaline diet cleanses and protects your body. An alkaline diet allows you to eat:

  • Raw Foods
  • Plant Proteins
  • Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
  • Alkaline water
  • Green Drinks
  • Foods that cause an acidic environment that must be avoided:
  • Eggs
  • Lentils
  • High Sodium foods
  • Processed Cereals
  • Cold cuts and processed meats
  • Peanuts, Walnuts
  • Oats and whole wheat
  • Pasta, rice, bread, packaged grain products
  • Caffeinated drinks and alcoho
