Alkaline Food Plan

Getting healthy is hard, but registered dietician Ashley Koff has developed a plan to make it a little easier! Instead of giving up many of your favorite toxifying foods for good, she's developed a plan that let's you eat some of your less-than-healthy favorites and offset the damage. The secret is alkaline-promoting foods. They may help neutralize potentially toxic acids created by common culprits in the American diet: meat and carbs. Get started on this simple food plan today!


Step #1: Know What You're Eating


Toxic acid-promoting foods include refined carbs, dairy and meats and poultry. These foods create the kind of acidic environment in your body that puts stress on your kidney and liver and may even increase the risk of diabetes. Foods that produce alkaline compounds in the body, however, help neutralize these effects. Knowing which foods are acid-promoting and which are alkaline-promoting is the first step to balancing your diet.\r\n
