Getting off your acid is not just a diet – it’s a lifestyle. Getting alkaline extends to everything, even exercise!
But did you know that there are some exercises that are highly alkalizing and oxygenating to your body, and there are others that are highly acid forming!
And even though you think you may be getting a good work out, it may be making you more inflamed, and dare I say, even gain MORE weight:
Try these simple ways to go alkaline:
- Choose organic whenever possible.
- Find ways to de-stress – stress causes acid in your body that is greater than the acid in any food or drink!
- Practice yoga, tai chi, and/or meditation.
- Shop at the farmers’ markets.
- Jump on a rebounder.
- Eat more raw foods.
- Exercise daily.
- Try intermittent fasting.
- Cook at home more and go out to eat less.
- Use essential oils around your home.
- Practice deep breathing – 70% of the acid in your body is removed through your lungs!
Keep in mind, the alkaline lifestyle is flexible, so you don’t need to do everything on the list above or eat perfectly alkaline all the time. Just like with everything we talk about here, start by adding and not taking away.
The 80/20 Principle We want to make it easy to get of your acid, because that’s how you’ll be able to keep it up so your body can really thrive.
So your goal is not perfection, it’s aiming to eat 80% alkaline and just 20% acidic.
That’s what makes the alkaline lifestyle sustainable. Remember, moderation, not deprivation!
While the alkaline lifestyle is not a diet, it’s a great way to lose weight. Read more:
