Did you know your body has an alkaline reserve? It’s a very important part of your body you should take into consideration, especially when choosing what diet and nutrition is best for your weight loss plan and health.
In his book, Alkalize or Die, Dr. Theodore Baroody explains the alkaline reserve, “The great alkaline reserve is the body’s bank account. The body can call upon it anytime to release alkaline elements for the neutralization of acid.” When the body uses minerals from its alkaline reserve, it’s important to replenish that supply through the food we eat and the water we drink. Why? Because if the alkaline reserve isn’t stocked with what it needs, your body will begin to find the alkaline minerals it needs elsewhere-in places like your your bones and teeth.
To help keep your alkaline reserve well stocked it’s essential that you eat foods that are alkaline. Here’s a partial list of some alkaline vegetables you can include in your everyday weight loss diet. What’s best is to eat them raw in a salad if possible. If you choose, however, to cook your vegetables try steaming them instead of boiling or microwaving.
- Alfalfa sprouts
- Asparagus (green tips)
- Bell Peppers
- Greens (leafy)
- Peas (fresh)
- Swiss chard
- Wheat grass
