i’ve Been hearing about the alkaline Diet lately. should i try it?
Kelly Ripa raved that it changed her life; Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are also reportedly fans. Proponents say meat, dairy, refined sugar, wheat, and alcohol may up acid production and send your ph balance outta whack, leading to illness. They swap these acid builders for alkalinefriendly foods: fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. But there’s no science to support controlling your body’s ph with food and drink.
