NEW YORK, NEW YORK – January 9, 2018 – Let’s talk about the four-letter word that’s sneakily destroying your health: acid. An acidic lifestyle—consuming sugar, dairy, excess animal proteins, processed food, alcohol, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, refined grains; along with lack of exercise, food allergies, and food sensitivities—causes inflammation. And inflammation is the culprit behind many of our current ailments, as well as causing weight gain and preventing weight loss. It’s a vicious cycle: being acidic and inflamed makes you fat, and being fat encourages inflammation.
Get Off Your Acid, by celebrity nutritionist and alkaline diet expert Dr. Daryl Gioffre, will rid your diet of the acidic foods that cause inflammation and wreak havoc on your health. There is no deprivation, fasting, or eating strange food combos. Dr. Gioffre’s “7 Steps in 7 Days” plan gives your body clean, nutrient-dense, alkaline-forming foods that gently cleanse from the inside out. And the recipes are made with accessible ingredients.
Dr. Gioffre’s research into excess acidity and the alkaline diet is a culmination of his work with his patients and own personal experiences with acid, from his lifelong struggles with an addiction to sugar to his father’s diagnosis with one of the most aggressive forms of cancer.
“As someone who battled my own health issues for a good portion of my life, I had to become a health detective to find the true cause of my problems, and I followed the evidence, and it led me to acid,” says Dr. Gioffre. If you have trouble losing weight, migraine headaches, problems sleeping, low energy, digestive issues, skin issues, or excessively crave sugar, he will show you that “there is always a specific cause.” And usually the hidden factor is acid.
With chapters on how to turn your body into a fat burning machine, the most acidic foods and why they are bad, and the most alkaline foods, Get Off Your Acid provides the tools to help you determine the specific type of acid that is the root of a particular health issue and how to transform your body into a more alkaline environment.
