What have we been tormenting with Dukan or crash diets! Now comes from the US, a new diet form that promises weight loss without starving and promotes health instead of lean mind. Alkaline: health instead of starvation The name of the new super-diet, which is supposed to promote health during slimming: "Alkaline" – or even short "A-Line" diet. The term "diet" is actually a bit misleading. Because "Alkaline" is a nutritional form, which focuses on a lot of fresh fruit, vegetables and more water. The basic idea: Highly acidic diet can fatigue, nervousness or dry skin but also depression, arthritis, gastritis, stomach ulcers, cell degeneration and osteoporosis result. Alkaline nutrition neutralizes the acidity. How does "Alkaline" work? Alkalinity measures the ability of a solution to neutralize acids – an ability that the human body actually possesses. It is already slightly alkaline with a pH of 7.35-7.45. If foods are "burned" during digestion, this process leaves behind a kind of "ash" in the digestive tract. This food ash can be neutral, acidic or alkaline. It depends entirely on the mineral composition of the food. If the residues are acidic, essential nutrients are used up faster – such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium. In an acidic environment, harmful bacteria breed faster, producing infections and diseases. In an alkaline body, however, these bacteria can not survive. Beauty Helper "A-Line" diet Alkaline nutrition not only ensures that the kilos tumble faster, but also acts as a beauty helper. The acid-neutralizing process automatically softens the skin, makes it smoother and smoother. In addition, Alkaline strengthens the immune system, facilitates bowel movements and reduces the risk of coronary heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. What can you eat with Alkaline? Fresh fruits, vegetables and lots and lots of water. Industrially processed foods, coffee and alcohol are to be avoided, which is also generally recommended for a healthy lifestyle. The alkaline diet is predominantly vegetarian, soy products supplement fruits and vegetables. On the other hand, meat, fish, eggs, white sugar and light flour should be avoided. Alkaline foods: figs, soybeans, spinach, beetroot, bananas, watermelons, carrots, celery, cucumbers, raisins, almonds, dates, lettuce, cress, potatoes, pineapple, grapefruit, peaches, apples, coconut, grapes, tomatoes. What is the benefit of Alkaline? The "A-Line" diet is a healthy diet that relies not on quick success but on long-term weight loss and more health. In this way, it stands out positively from one-sided and thus unhealthy diets such as Atkins or pineapple diet.
