Are You an ALKALINE ACE
or an ACID-HOLIC?


Acidic Foods to Avoid

There’s a whole host of acidic foods our bodies are forced to deal with on a daily basis because of the SAD (Standard American Diet). The modern American diet consists of mostly acidic foods that are processed, packaged, and prepared for us. Combined with a sedentary lifestyle and high stress levels, it’s no wonder that the United States ranks a shocking 72nd in world health. 

 

What makes a food acidic?

 

If a food is high in sugar or yeast, is fermented, contains fungi, or is refined, then it’s acidic. This is the acid equation… More Sugar = More Acid More Minerals = More Alkaline So for example, most fruit is acidic because it is high in sugar. Fruit is high in minerals, though, so low sugar fruits like avocados, tomatoes, lemons, limes, grapefruits, coconuts, and pomegranates are alkaline. Processed foods might be low in sugar in some cases, but they are also low in minerals, so they are acidic. These are foods that make you fatter, sicker, and weaker. With that said, if you’re eating these foods now, that’s okay. This is not about feeling guilty or stopping cold turkey. It’s about replacing the foods that are harming your body with ones that are going to heal your body.

 

Why is sugar so bad?

 

When thinking of sugar, think of it in terms of what it does inside of your body: Sugar = acid = glue! Sugar basically makes our blood this thick substance, so that it moves through the body sluggishly, leaving us drained of all energy. It feeds microforms like candida (a yeast), fungus, mold, and cancer in your body. If you want to heal your body, you must starve these cells from the food they love the most and get their energy from – sugar!
