Nutrition Notes: Day 33/40. One week to go!! Sign up for your InBody re-scan HERE. Today’s topic: Who has heard of the “alkaline diet?” Created in 2010, this diet quickly became popular among Hollywood celebs. It’s based on the premise that foods you eat affect your body’s chemistry. Proponents of this diet believe that an alkaline pH will help you feel better and stave off various diseases, while an acidic pH sets you up for a host of health problems. Foods that lower your pH (and therefore should be limited on the alkaline diet) include: meat, dairy, wheat, refined sugar, and processed foods. Foods that raise your pH (preferred foods) include most fruits and vegetables, legumes, and nuts.

The creator of the alkaline diet may have convinced Hollywood, but there’s very little evidence to support its efficacy. Eating alkaline foods will increase the pH of your urine, but urine pH is a poor indicator of overall body pH and health. Eating alkaline foods has not been shown to affect the blood pH, which is more impactful on health. There is ONE situation in which an alkaline diet may be beneficial – it can reduce the likelihood of kidney stones. The bottom line: Monitoring your urine pH is not the next big thing you should be doing for your health. But there is one thing we can all agree on: Eat your vegetables!
