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. Still, Kelly prob­a­bly did feel bet­ter. Eat­ing more pro­duce, drink­ing more wa­ter, and lim­it­ing sugar and al­co­hol is sound ad­vice. Nix­ing meat is fine if you get es­sen­tial nu­tri­ents from other sources.
