What is an Acid/Alkaline Diet?

by Nise on April 16, 2014

Alkaline/Acid - EatHealthyLiveFit_comThe Acid/Alkaline diet is one of the many diets out there that promotes healthy food, healthy body and healthy weight loss. It is based on the principle of foods that affect the acidity level of the human body and the pH value of the fluids in the body such as blood or urine. The main belief related to this diet is that it can prevent many diseases and help you lose weight. 

The food we eat, after it’s digested, releases either alkaline or acid base into our body, specifically in the blood. Consumption of acid base foods meant an acid-producing diet, and consumption of vegetables and fruit declined. The human blood has an optimal pH level of 7.35 – 7.45 which makes it slightly alkaline. So basically, if you eat more acid base foods than alkaline base foods, this pH balance can be disturbed and the body loses important minerals: sodium, calcium, potassium etc. The alkaline diet restores the body’s health and prevents it from being prone to illnesses.

What is a Raw Food Diet?

Nature's Fast Food - RAW FOOD Nature’s Fast-food – RAW FOOD!

As the name itself states, Raw Food Diet is a diet consisting of unprocessed and uncooked raw foods, mostly of organic origin. This diet may be vegetarian, vegan or omnivorous, depending on personal choice, dietary needs, preferences and metabolism. The foods in the raw food diet are natural and usually consumed with no cooking, or, if any, on a very low temperature (usually 40 degrees Celsius). This is a belief of raw dietists who are certain that if food is cooked above the assigned temperature, it loses its enzymes and nutrients. Some people may not be comfortable with the idea of not cooking their meat, so another alternative would be to avoid it altogether if they decide to follow this diet and hence become a Raw Food Vegan.
