It's already quite warm outside, and summer is just around the corner - it's time when everyone wants to demonstrate their figure in a light short dress. In order to restore your body to the ideal forms that were lost over the long winter months, you should think about a diet now.
If you do not feel like restricting yourself too much, then an alkaline diet is an excellent choice of diet. Many world celebrities have already experienced it. Hollywood stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Gisele Bundchen are happy to talk about her.
This miraculous diet was developed by doctors Natasha Corret and Vicki Edgson. Several years ago, they found out that the acid-base balance in the body, which is often reduced as pH, affects not only the condition of the skin, but also the figure. Your body works at its best if the pH is normal between 7, 35 and 7, 45. Every food you consume affects the acid-base balance, because when digested, it produces one of two reactions: acidic or alkaline.
If you eat food that provokes only one type of reaction, then your body will soon respond to such a diet. If the pH balance is imbalanced, problems with digestion, excess weight and dry skin will gradually begin. To avoid all these unpleasant consequences, adherents of the alkaline diet suggest simply observing the alkaline balance in the body. You can eat almost anything, the main thing is to keep the proportions: 20 percent acidic foods a day and 80 percent alkaline.
The emphasis, first of all, should be made on mushrooms, vegetables and some fruits. Alkaline foods include:
- white cabbage and much more
Fruit will suit you perfectly:
You can also safely eat boiled fish and meat, as well as cereals. Pumpkin seeds and almonds, which can be consumed in unlimited quantities, will be a pleasant bonus. But, as with any diet, some foods are still worth giving up. In any case, it is necessary to significantly reduce their consumption. This forbidden list will include:
- dried fruits
- cow's milk
- peanuts and hazelnuts
- fried meat and fish
- canned food
- refined sugar
- strong coffee and sugary carbonated drinks
Do not be discouraged if you see your favorite treat on the list of prohibited foods. On average, on such a diet, you can lose up to 4 kilograms per month. So before the summer, you will have time to accurately restore your shape.
