100 Days to Health - Day 043 | Acid - Alkaline Balance

Week 7 – Day 43

ACID – ALKALINE BALANCE

Alkaline-forming foods are all fruit and vegetables, millet (a grain), and almond nuts. the rest of our foods are acid-forming in varying degrees.
This does not mean you cannot eat acid-forming foods, just that they should be about 25 % of your daily intake. This allows for the correct balance between Acid / Alkaline. strive to maintain your alkaline forming foods to 75% of your daily intake. This can be done easily when you follow the guidelines in the 100 Days to Health.
The higher the alkaline-forming foods in your diet, the easier it is to convert fuel (food) into energy and the more balanced the acid/alkaline ratio, the less chance you have of developing degenerative diseases like cancer. Research also shows that the higher the alkaline environment in the brain, the higher the IQ. Overall the benefits of an alkaline environment are an improved immune and hormonal system.
The way to create a more alkaline environment is to eat more alkaline-forming foods.  Adding Guideline # 7 into your lifestyle will help you be smarter, healthier and slimmer.

Then based on what you have learnt so far, circle the foods in your past diet that were alkaline-forming. Do the same with your present diet. 

See if you are on track to maintaining the acid/alkaline ratio of 75% alkaline-forming foods and 25 % acid-forming foods.
GOOD HABIT # 7
Maintain the Correct Acid/Alkaline Balance
This is really simple and easy to do if you follow the following 4 steps to maintain a correctly balanced acid/alkaline ratio:
1. Eat 1 fruit meal a day.
2. Snack on fresh and raw fruit/vegetables.
3. Start all cooked meals with raw vegetables.
4. Eat animal protein only once a day.

If you consider that the first 3 steps are already in place having come this far on the 100 Days to Health Program, you will only have to add step 4.

Isn’t it great to know that you’re already making a difference to your acid/alkaline ratio. You’re already 3 steps into maintaining the correct balance.  
For more information read Chapter 7 in Perfect Health. This chapter covers the information about this step in detail.
