It is imperative that referring physicians and patients recognize that bariatric surgery is not a magic bullet, but rather a tool that, when combined with healthy lifestyle changes, allows patients to enjoy long-term weight loss success. The three most commonly performed weight loss surgery procedures are the Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, the Sleeve Gastrectomy and the Adjustable Gastric Band. Patients should learn about and discuss the various procedures thoroughly with their bariatric San Antonio surgeon to determine the most appropriate procedure to fit the patient s lifestyle needs and medical conditions. look what i found Flip the Fat Loss Switch (Make Fat Loss a Biological Certainty)

    Hi Ross
    Just looking through some of your recipes and notice in your Mexican Tortilla Soup recipe you mention Sprouted Tortillas. Do you have a recipe for that? I did find one online called “Basic Spelt Tortillas (Sprouted), so would this be ok to use?
    Also, on the subject of flours, what are your recommendations?

    Hi Ross,
    I have been on an alkaline diet now for about 3 months and still find the weight just hangs on. my pH is about 7.3. It is a little disheartening when the expectation is to lose the weight, as so many others have, but the truth is that if I eat over about 1200 cals a day, the weight quickly piles back on. I only have about 2 pces fruit a day, avoiding bananas, and I keep my intake of nuts seeds and oils really low, including avocadoes. Could it possibly be hormonal as I am 51 yrs old?
    It is very annoying as I am trying to prove to my obese husband that this kind of eating actually sheds the weight, however from my results, to him this new way of eating doesn’t do what it claims to. I haven’t noticed any health benefits really either, like surges of energyor vitality, and so am wondering, am I the exception to the alkaline diet rule?

    Hi Ross
    I have been drinking green smoothies with kale in them just recently and had to cut out the kale as it gives me a rash on my neck and face and dry itchy patches on my eyes. now i stopped and started these smoothies thru the summer to see if it wasnt something else i was doing or eating and all three times i broke out so i now know it is the kale. I would like to know can i still get enough nutrtion with just spinach, avacoado and banana in my smoothies or should i be adding something more? And do cancer sores mean I am very acidic inside??

    Ross,

    Thank you so much for what you’re doing. I want so much to lose weight, especially since my son just told me that he’s getting married at the end of January. The difficult part for me is that I have several medical issues and with each of them, there are certain foods I need to avoid. I can’t have any kind of soy, caffeine, or mint, so tofu and soy sauce are out, as are flax seed and celery. I’m also not supposed to eat nightshades: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and potatoes. This is the most difficult for me as I live in Israel and everyone lives on those first three foods. I bought you Alkaline Diet Recipe Book, but most of the recipes aren’t doable for me.

    HELP!

    Hi Ross

    I made your chickpea korma tonight and since then I’ve noticed on a acid/alkaline chart online (not yours) that any canned foods are acidic. I used canned chickpeas and canned light coconut milk to make the dish.

      Hi Set

      Glad you made it – hope you like it! Not all canned food is at all – this is widely misleading. Of course, it’s best to prepare them yourself, but this is more related to canned foods like soups, canned meals etc – not canned pulses and beans, and certainly not canned coconut milk.

    Ross, I appreciate all that you’re teaching and showing us. I’m so particular about the hydration program. My experience is: when I drink more water I discover I visit the ‘gents’ more frequently. It brings some inconveniences to bear if I’m travelling, for example. Is there any workaround?


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Stan

      When you first start increasing your water intake it can feel like you’re always going to the loo. This is normal and will improve. Think of your body like a sponge – when you’ve been dehydrated and you put water on it, to begin with it just runs off and doesn’t get absorbed, but the more water you put on, the more it becomes absorbant.

      Thanks
      Ross

    Hi Ross,

    As per all below I really appreciate the time and hard work you put into the energize programme. Generally I just peruse your articles but your pleading at the end of this latest vid resonated with me… The advice I would like is what you would recommend for under active thyroid. This is not a diagnosed condition, it may not be the problem at all. All TSH blood tests have come back normal, and yet I continue to have this puffy ring about the lower part of my neck. I have supplemented my diet with volcanic rock salt as this had double the iodine of himalayan salt and I feel there has been some improvement, just not quite as much as I was hoping for.

    Thank you,
    Tia

      No worries, I do it because I’m driven to help! It’s a passion of mine :)

      I believe with so many niggling things, getting our pH in balance is a great support. Let’s face it, if you do and you get heaps more energy and all of the other benefits it’s not like you will have lost out! And I believe it should help too.

      Definitely give it a try!

    Is drinking distilled water ok? I have been drinking it for some time now and I put trace minerals in it.


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Distilled water is not the best, and it’s not that environmentally sound either. The filtration is very pure and putting minerals back in helps – but it also has a +ORP (meaning it oxidises cells) and an acidic pH (although the minerals will help with that).

      Stick with it while you’ve got it but explore some of the other options in the guide below the video above.

    Gusto en saludarte. I’m very excited to start a healthier life by becoming alkaline. I was very scared few weeks ago, because I was feeling very tired, with no energy at all. But when I read your guide to understanding Alkaline Water, I felt relieved because my only HUGE problem was dehydration!!! Immediately I started drinking more water and of course I’m feeling better.
    I have a question, could I cook the vegetables?, especially for soups, because in almost all your recipes you use raw vegetables, no cooked. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge about this issues with all of us.

    You’re awesome. Thank you so much for this information.

    A year ago I started to beware of my body’s alkalinity. I bought the Ph checking strips. I was always in the acid state, until I started to follow your program. Now, finally, I am always in the proper ph state, dark green/blue level on the chart. I feel better. My colon isn’t clogged up now. I’m able to lose some weight, although I wasn’t overweight, I just had a bloated feeling all the time. I also have eliminated grains from my diet, and I have found that I am gluten intolerant. So not only am I now able to know what to eat and do it for my health…my body is healthier and my bowels are far less clogged, and I am not as bloated. My stomach is a lot flatter than it has been in years.. Thank you again

    Hello Ross

    Thankyou so much for sharing your valuable information , I accidently came across your site as I was trying to figure out something about doing a cleanse. I am excitedly waiting for your recipe book that I ordered not to long ago.

    I just want to share something that i’ve come across that you might find to be very interesting. Its a website by Dr. Richard Anderson (discussing mucoid plaque). It is VERY well worth the time to slowly go through the website and read about this. I just recently ordered his colon cleanse -arise and shine (cleanses the whole digestive tract) and supposedly gets rid of lots of this mucoid plaque . Supposedly (according to many) it really works , so I thought that i’d give it a try. Some skeptics say mucoid plaque does not exist and is a scam, but the information presented TOTALLY makes sense. I personally have never tried the cleanse, but it just arrived in the mail so i will start it soon.

    Then , thanks to your information sharing, i’ll be going on an alkaline diet to help prevent the building up of this mucoid plaque again.

    Here is the website– http://cleanse.net

    Take care and thank you so much once again

    Hi Ross,

    My question is regarding water:

    I’ve been drinking the Saka brand bottled water because it’s PH is 8.22. I avoid tap water in London because of the hormone content.

    But now I’m not sure Saka is the best as you’ve told us about ORP. How do I know what ORP Saka water has?

    Would a better choice be filtered tap water? Unfortunately I can’t afford any of the methods to make it alkaline apart from lemon (which I would have once a day).

    Large handful of kale and spinach
    1/2 green pepper
    2 sticks of celery
    4 florets of broccoli.
    The above is in each juicing.
    Should I be having them as well as breakfast and lunch?
    I want to take flax oil as well. Would I be having 3 tablespoons or teaspoons per day?
    Thanks again for all your advise. I am beginning to enjoy green veg which is a big surprise.

      Hey Lorna

      Firstly, the juices sound PERFECT. Brilliant.

      I would personally eat a little breakfast and lunch with this too. Think of the juice as your starter. If the juice gets you through til mid-morning and you have a light breakfast/snack then, that’s fine too.

      For the flax, it’s tablespoons. 2 at a minimum.

      Great you’re enjoying the veg – your tastebuds DO change don’t they!

      You can drink it more than just for breakfast, but I’d probably mix it up a bit during the day.

      Hey Simmone

      Don’t think in terms of ‘if I eat this then I can eat that to cancel it out’ – that’s a dangerous path to go down. It never works.

      Think instead in terms of transitioning away from it and cutting down a little at a time while getting loads of good in. Focus on the good in rather than the bad out.

      Hi Asma

      If you poach it then I’d be more inclined to say ‘possibly’. But not every day. It’s not just that eggs are really acid forming, but they prevent you from having a really energising, alkaline breakfast!

      Here is a compromise, serve poached with a huge amount of steamed spinach, some fresh tomato and avocado, all drizzled with hemp oil and a little Himalayan salt.

      Fair? :)

    Love the info. I covered alkaline diet theory in a course about 14 years ago and intuitively felt that it was the way to go. I don’t have much weight to lose – would be happy to lose 5 kgs. My downfall is that I love to start the day with a latte but am happy to implement all the other alkaline strategies for the rest of the day….do I need to give up this latte??

      Hey Alina

      It would be best to transition away from it for sure. I’ve found over the years that the way people start the day largely influences the way they spend the rest of it.

      Can you transition to a piccolo, then a macchiato, then every other day, then at weekends?

      Think about the drinks you could learn to love to replace it!

      The older we get and the more life, body, hormonal changes we go through the more challenges we have to overcome to maintain our ideal, most efficient and powerful body. BUT that is only a small hurdle when you start to get alkaline. Getting your pH balance in check enables the body to work so much more efficiently and effectively that these changes and challenges start to become insignificant. It may take a little longer – but you will get there.

      Thanks for spreading the word – I really appreciate it!

    Hi Ross,

    Will the diet work if I am unable to use the best ph water options?
    I am not able to purchase the machines at this time that are suggested.

    How can I find an inexpensive alternative…something between these machines and lemon/lime?

    Thanx,

      Hey Pamela

      Absolutely! Everything works in isolation: diet, exercise, water, emotions…but when you combine them they are worth WAAAAY more than the sum of their parts. Diet PLUS exercise is incredible. Diet PLUS exercise PLUS proper hydration is unreal. Diet PLUS…you get the picture.

      The Alkaline Water Guide linked to above (and here) gives lots of options inbetween. Google the Energise Alkaline Water Jug, I think this is your best option.

    I am starting an elimination diet. I will be drinking alkaline water, Evermore, and eating gluten and yeast free foods. Fruits are apples and pears. Lots of raw green vegetables . Meats are fish, lamb, turkey, and chicken. Do u think I will get enough omega 3 on this restricted diet?
    Thank u

      Hi Lissa

      I prefer to recommend a diet that gets LOADS of good in rather than restrict. Regarding the water, I have tested over 40 brands and am yet to find one that is truly alkaline. They may be at source (which is when the tests are conducted) but after up to 18 months in a bottle, in a warehouse, on a truck, on a store shelf then in your house their pH has degraded. I haven’t tested this brand so maybe they’re the exception to the rule, but generally I have a problem with bottled water:

      1) the fact that the water is sitting in plastic for months/years troubles me.
      2) the environmental impact of the plastic use troubles me
      3) all bottled water I’ve tested has also had a highly positive ORP, which means it’s oxidising to the body and our cells, encouraging free radicals.

      If any bottled water DOES have a more alkaline pH then it has simply had alkaline minerals added. You would be FAR better off simply filtering your water at home and adding a pinch of bicarbonate of soda yourself. The water will still have a mildly +ORP but it will be filtered, won’t have had chemicals from the plastic leached into it and it won’t be negatively impacting the environment.

      Regarding the foods you’re having – what % does each of those food groups take up in your diet?

      The raw greens would need to be a very high percentage as fruits and meats are acidic.

      I don’t see a problem with adding things like quinoa, buckwheat, other vegetables, avocados, nuts, seeds etc would be a problem for you. Restriction, by it’s nature, unless managed very carefully can lead to getting into that deprivation state. Keep your food varied and definitely don’t let yourself go hungry.

      Cheers

    Hi Ross,
    I have been suffering from candida, leaky gut, IBS, the whole bit for the last 3 years. I have tried the raw food diet, blood type diet, candida diet, juicing, etc. Juicing seemed to help, but I felt like I wasn’t getting enough protein. I was just juicing with vegetables and didn’t add any healthy fats…could this be why? I am really into cross-fit workouts and after juicing for a couple days I had absolutely NO energy. Ive cut out all white products, sugars (except stevia), gluten & breads, and all dairy. I am starting to incorporate some almonds and nuts into my diet, but it makes me bloat and feel miserable! I even tried soaking them! Maybe i’m just one that can’t tolerate nuts..idk. I just wondered what you would do in my situation. I would like to lose at least 15 lbs. I just purchased the chanson water ionizer max and LOVE it but feel like I haven’t seen much of a change in body (it’s only been 2 weeks). I consume on average 8-10 liters of that water daily. This may seem like a lot to some but I am ALWAYS thirsty! Could this be a sign for something else? And would you suggest me taking a probiotic?
    Let me know your thoughts! & Thanks for ALL your advice so far!

      Hi Erica

      Wow, doing crossfit on just juice would be very tough. You need to be eating lots if you’re doing crossfit.

      In your situation I would go from focusing on stuff that’s so extreme and go to the suggestions here in my video and my site. The things you’ve cut out so far – that’s great work, and if almonds don’t work for you thats fine – you’ll need to find other snacks that work for you though.

      Your level of water consumption sounds very high – are you converting from US and getting the conversion out? 8-10 litres – that’s too much for someone who is not an elite athlete. It’s not far off a litre per waking hour – which is too much I believe.

      I would cut this down to 4-5 litres.

      Probiotics are a good idea, especially once you’ve cut out yeasts like you have as they work way more optimally once these things are not in your diet.

    First I want to say your web site is so awsome. And better yet its free. My question is can I use Stevia glycerite sweetner in my smoothies. Second I have been using lemons in my water to make it alkaline. I have Multipul sclerosis and have a very over active bladder. If I was to drink 4 litters of water a day I would be spending all day on the toilet. Is it OK to drink less than you are telling people to drink?

      Hi Corinda

      Build your hydration up slowly, this is the best way to encourage your body to accept more. Start slow and build.

      Stevia in smoothies is ok to begin with but try to transition to using less and less as time goes by…

    Hi there Ross!!

    I recently bought the Tony Robbins Ultimate breakthrough audio pack. It’s awesome – it’s where I learnt Alkanizing and energizing. I googled ‘Alkaline diet’, and your site popped up. So glad it did. You totally know what you’re talking about.

    I’m really excited about this diet/lifestyle. I’m a 23 year old science teacher in London. It’s so easy to get into the wrong eating habits and as a consequence leaves you with a lethargic body, unable to do half the things you want to do – and soon you’re trying your best to survive on a daily basis; the only thing you look forward to is a bed. Not the way to live. I want to be a role model for other teachers on Monday mornings!!!

    I’ve started drinking tons of water; what a difference!!! I’m more alert and less lethargic by the end of the day, which allows me to fit in a work-out which helps me feel even more energised.

    I can easily incorporate your tips into my daily routine – can’t wait for the effects.

    I have sent a link to all my colleagues.

    Thank you for putting your life into this work – we are very blessed to have you!

    Keep it up!!

    Hi Ross, I took a look at your info as i have been working with naturopathy principles since the mid 70′s and have used it within my homeopathic practice for thirty years, so i was interested in what you are doing for ‘EFL’, who are one of my suppliers.
    I also practice and teach clients and groups very similar principals to the ones you teach. I have to confess that the only thing i haven’t got around to buying, in all these years, is an ionizer and i should get on the case. I have Fresh Water Filter Companies ceramic filters, which take out pretty much and leave minerals intact. Remiss of me I know, but reading about ionizers again on the EFL site makes me feel i must get around to doing this.

    So great to see you putting the word out.
    Loved your enthusiasm and dedication – Its important to walk the talk and I get that you are fully committed – as I am. Natural health through diet is the most wonderful thing we can all do for ourselves and to pass on those health values is reward itself. Great stuff Ross –

    Good wishes, Ross,

      The aim is for 70-80% alkaline and 20-30% acidic. Within the acidic I would still certainly stay away from REALLY bad stuff like cola, soda, chips, pizza, sugary foods, cakes etc! But there is room for movement with everything else.

  66. Keith

    Hi Ross

    Thanks for all your enthusiasm and advice. I have just two questions. Why 20 years ago (I am 77 now) , when I ate much the same acidic diet that I eat now, I was not overweight and was very fit? I did a lot of exercise and ate all the “bad” things.

    During the World War 2, when people were in general much slimmer and fitter than they are now. Whilst they ate a more restricted diet, I assume that the acidity of their diet was much the same as it is today. Why is this?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Keith


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Keith

      What was your acidic diet like? What were you eating? It’s a really ambiguous description of your diet so it’s hard for me to consider! Also, you may not have been overweight, but you can definitely be in ‘shape’ and definitely acidic, sick and a timebomb. Weight is one of several physical signs of an over-acidic body.

      During World War 2 people were still eating a LOT more fresher foods, MUCH less refined foods, no sweets, no McDonalds and much less chemicals in their foods. They were also much more active. If we went back to this we would be better, not perfect, but better than the average person today.

      Thanks

    Hey Ross,

    Thankyou so much for your advice and support. Had you any idea what a following you would have?! You must have had to rearrange your life over the past couple of days to answer everyone!

    This all rings true to me and I’m really excited to get in to it and see the results. I have recently read Dr Youngs book and your enthusiastic guides on top of that are very inspiring and simple to follow.

    I look forward to letting you know I have lost weight, gained energy and cleared up some funny little skin conditions.

    For some time now I have been so thirsty I skull a couple of glasses of water as soon as I wake up and drink 3 – 4 litres every day without seeming to ever quench my thirst. The past couple of weeks I’ve added pH drops to my water and have found I’m not as desperately thirsty – perhaps I am finally properly hydrating with good water? (I’m still drinking the 3 – 4 litres)

    An ionizer is on my list but for the meantime I have ordered one of the “alkalising + ionising” 380ml stainless steel flasks, I wondered what you think of these?

    Thank you again so much for sharing your knowledge and passion! :)
    Tam.


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Tam

      Sounds like you’re on a great path!

      The alkalising and ionizing flasks do alkalise a little – maybe 0.5 – 1ph added, but they do not ionize. Ionization is only possible through electrolysis – all they do is add some minerals to the water, trace amounts. If it were actually ionized, the steel would remove the ionization immediately anyway by destroying the negative charge of the ions.

      BUT they are definitely a step in the right direction while you wait to get an ionizer.

      ROss

    Hi Ross

    Sorry, my website has nothing whatsoever to do with the Alkaline Diet – but thought I’d promote it anyway – as you can see from it, I’m doing a sponsored slimathon to raise funds for all the dogs I rescue.

    That aside, I wonder if you could list the foods acidic food that one should avoid the most. Also, I note from your first video that one of the problems that someone encountered was they stopped drinking water at 6pm so was dehydrated. I have the reverse problem is that I walk 7 miles in the morning and would find it impossible to drink water before going, so normally don’t start drinking until about 11am.

    You probably can’t suggest anything for the latter, but a list of foods to avoid would be very helpful.

I know that being alkaline will bring our bodies to homeostasis, but what about our mental health as well? Have you heard from anyone about whether or not it helps with depression, bi-polar, low seratonin levels, PMS, etc? It seems to me that if our bodies are in a state of great health, that our minds and emotions will be as well, but I was hoping to hear if anyone has experienced this.

I have worked out before doing various cardio and weight lifting routines that I mostly enjoyed but now walking even for 10 minutes has been exhausting. Could alkalizing my body help me get back to feeling better? I truly miss being active and don’t like feeling like this. Please help if you can.

      Hi Kenisha

      I believe following this lifestyle will help, definitely.

      I think that the vast majority of people would benefit from: eating a diet that is 80% rich in fresh, high water content foods, green foods, salads, vegetables, oils, nuts and seeds, pulses and foods that are free from processing – while staying well hydrated and exercising. On top of this avoiding sugars, trans fats, yeasts, dairy, sweets, cakes, chips, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, breads, white foods etc. The remaining 20% should be high quality foods and organic foods and can include some proteins, fish, grains and dairy.
      Sound good?

    Hi Ross,
    Our family has medical history of ‘hardening of the arteries’. We are really to try the Alkaline Weight Loss method and have purchased the Chanson Miracle Max. I am worried the extra bio availability of minerals (especially calcium) in ionised water will aggravate our atherosclerosis. Patrick Holfords book ‘beat heart disease’ recommends reducing intake of calcium, as it is calcium that adheres to the artery wall, causing them to narrow and lose flexibility.The tap water in our area is very hard (London). How can we protect our arteries from further hardening?

      In the case of your water being high in calcium I recommend a couple of things:

    I just wanted to share the most recent changes I’ve noticed since I began (doing my best) to drink 3litres of water a day, increase my green intake to 4-6 serves and take omega 3 daily. When i first started drinking the water I found it hard to drink all 3 litres and I got very bloated and was running to the bathroom all day, the green veggies have been easy to add into my daily diet as has the omega 3.

    By day 3 of implementing these changes I’ve noticed dramatic differences! My mood is more positive, my concentration and motivation has improved, when I wake up in the morning I’m not grogy and lethargic I’m ready to get out of bed and get going. I’ve also noticed the dark circles under my eyes have decreased and all of the bloating has gone, I’m going to the toilet less even though im drinking the 3L of water. Not to mention the increased energy I have, even daily routine things are less draining than they were 3 days ago.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us, I hope you continue to blog and try to educate the world on how easy it really is to get more out of life. I’ll be waiting for your next video!

    -Kathryn

    I like your message about moving from deprivation to vitality…
    concentrating on getting the good stuff in rather than cutting out foods (like fat – is there anything more nasty than fat free, but oversweetened, biscuits and yoghurts – shudder!)

    I am interested in the Alkaline Diet and the essential 4 elements you mention in the vid, especially water – the type of water, so thank you for the downloads. I want to learn more about PH and health in comparison to my present lifestyle.

    I have have endured years of stress (care for family and parents) and now moving out of this situation I am able to concentrate on my needs.
    I have lost weight quickly, (almost 20 kilos since July) by:

    Reading Chinese Medicine 5 element theory
    Sleeping and eating regular, beneficial times – respecting my digestive system, my body and it’s limitations.
    Starting every day with lemon juice in warm water; using the peel to make a bitter drink later.
    Eating more veg, greens and bitters like chicory, celery etc
    Including more bitter and sour foods (sweet, salty, hot flavours dominate western diet).
    Drinking more water; no alcohol/coffee
    Eliminating dairy (creates dampness) except for skimmed milk in earl grey tea
    (UK climate is predominately damp cold, esp. in winter)
    Not eating any refined sugar – The a.m. lemon juice seemed to make this easy
    Making most carb intake with nuts/oats/buckwheat/brown rice/quinoa (less carb in first month)
    Not eating any packet/processed foods at all; an commercial breads have really lost their appeal.
    Including more tofu and organic eggs (unfortunately can’t afford everything organic for family buy)
    Cooking with virgin coconut oil almost exclusively
    Supplementing with fish oil, B complex, Relora, E3 live algae & VSL and soil based probiotics
    Using only Celtic sea salt and some topical remineralising with magnesium chloride oil
    Including more berries as fruits and pineapple for digestive enzymes (I actually went off sweet stuff and a lot of fruits)
    Starting Tai ji , Qgong and restarting flamenco dance after 3 years because of all the extra energy.
    I am 57. Since being able to concentrate on redefining and fulfilling my needs I feel – and people think I am – 20 years younger :)

    Hey Ross,

    I started the alk diet and was achieving fantastic results, i felt brilliant and looked the best i ever have – thanks so much for the info you post here, it’s such a big help to my life and others no doubt, i couldn’t do the diet without your tricks, tips and recipes.

    as time went on i moved away and i lost touch with the diet and went back to convenience foods due to a tight budget and less time (due to poor organisation) i’ve just started up again and finding it harder than before but this time what i really needed was a thorough guide and some examples of how people have converted. It’s not easy being green i must admit, but it’s a hell of a lot easier than dealing with illness and bad health due to acidity. thanks for keeping us motivated, staying in touch, keep up the good work!

    Regards,

    On another level, I have recently found that after eating most meals I burp or get wind could this be down to acid? At the momen, I am on a ‘normal diet’, just reading about alkaline diets and interested in it. I know my body isnt too good with pulses and beans as they also make me windy!! any suggestions?

    Is apple cider vinegar water alkaline? And what about probiotics? I am trying to eat alkaline also using ACV for all it’s health benefits and i eat alot of yogurt and probiotic drinks what are your thoughts on these added to the alkaline diet?

    Thanks!


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Nancy

      ACV is fermented so is unfortunately acid forming. As is yoghurt. The amount of yoghurt you’d need to eat to get any probiotic benefit would be so big, it’s insane. I’d steer clear of the yoghurt and probiotic drinks and just take a probiotic capsule instead.

I feel like you really care about people and are not out just to make money, like so many others I’ve seen online. That means alot! You’ve motivated me to start this journey :) and I want to thank you. I’ve had an extremely hard time losing weight the past 10 years (about the time I hit 35), and I’m sick and tired of being overweight. Not only that, but I’m extremely tired! I just recently become a grandmother, and I want to be able to spend time with my grandson and have the energy I need to keep up with him. Is this “diet” going to help with my energy level? I certainly hope so! Also, other than lots of greens, water and healthy oils what else should I be eating? Steamed veggies? Any healthy carbs? Thanks again for being “real” and taking the time to answer all of these questions. You are a real blessing!

I have lost about 10 lbs by giving up carbs, but I am having gout symptoms and believe I must be too acid.

If I sautée the greens like spinach, kale,broccoli so they lose their goiterogenic effect cuz of hypothyroidism, would I lose the weightloss benefits? It’s so weird…it’s like sometimes when I juice the greens I feel fine but yesterday when I made the juice I felt tired afterward. So confused??? I hate having hypothyroidism!! :((

    Well, it’s life…what can anyone do? Just be thankful and move on cuz its not that bad.

    Hi Ross,
    A quick question, I am a single mother of a very active 18 month old girl, I have recently been in touch with Beverley Bird from living blood uk and following a live blood analysis has advised me to follow the alkaline diet. I have quite a bit of weight to lose (6st) to get back into a healthy range but as I have dieted in the past all portion sizes were cut right down, can you please tell me what sizes the portions I should be eating are and if it is ok and safe for my daughter to follow the same diet? (She is basically vegetarian by her choice, she hates meat) and also how much water (litres) should I be drinking? I have only just started on this diet and have been drinking about 3 litres per day.

    Many thanks
    Louisa


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      You don’t have to worry about portion sizes with the alkaline diet! Eat as much as you like as long as it’s within the alkaline foods. Your diet (and each plate) should be 80% alkaline and 20% acid (or less) and so when 80% of your plate is alkaline you can eat as much of this as you like.

      You should NEVER be going hungry. Hunger is acid-forming.

      3 litres per day of water is great.

      Regarding your daughter – I’m always cautious about baby and toddler suggestions. Just keep her diet mostly alkaline and balanced.

      Thanks
      Ross

    Its so obvious that you have put your heart and soul on this , All the love shows through, I have started your diet a few weeks ago, feel lighter and better, my scale doesnt want to come down, I dont care ,I have a birthday coming up on new years eve and I want to be lighter and feel less tired all the time. I keep reminding my self that all these extra weight didnt pile on me over night and surely it wont come down over night either. A healthy weight loss takes time 3-6 months to show true results, I pray alot that g-d would give me the power to resist all thats not good for me and help me reach a healtier more energetic , lighter body and life. I have cut out all wheat, corn, and anti histamine foods from my diet for the past 3 months, fighting with myself to cut out even the two cups of nescafe daily, and the sporadic sugar cravings. Drink 3 litters of water a day? OMG thats akiller . Dont like drinking water, is the water filters in refrigeraters that give water and ice alkaline? I heard you said tap water isnt recommended? I am taking 1000mg of omega 3 a day, multivitamin one a day and co q 10 what else do you recommend? i love greens and will make an effort to add more. i have also added alot of walnuts and almonds to my diet.


    • energise ross

      Hey Jay

      Thanks heaps for your comment. I definitely HAVE put everything I’ve got into this!

      Water is something you’ll have to build up to. The best things you can do are:

      1) make having 500ml of water as soon as you wake up a part of your daily life
      2) get into herbal teas – have several cups per day

      These two actions will get you on your way.

      It’s hard to know what type of filter you have in your fridge. THe main concern I have with fridge filters is that people very rarely change them and replace the filter components. After 12 months ALL filters start to break down and put all of the toxins back in the water – so check this out.

    Hey Ross, I am 51 years old and morbidly obese. I weigh 300 lbs and am only 5′ 2″. I have been studying the alkaline diet for years but have been unsuccessful in implementing it fully until I found your recipe book. It is fabulous! It takes wonderful, good tasting, real food and makes it in to meals that work! I can follow this plan. I have the Chanson water machine, pHour salts, omegas and a juicer. I do your acid crusher morning routine. I feel better within 24 hours, more energy, better sleep, no more ankle swelling, mood improvement, etc. However, I have something else happen that I cannot figure out. I develop visual disturbances which include double vision, watery red eyes and I start rubbing them because they are itchy and gritty. This seems bizarre to me. I had my eyes tested and they come out normal. I have a few theories, no 1, could it be an allergy, say to soy which I don’t usually eat, I have done the program without soy though and it still happens. Soy is in a lot if stuff though and when I eat the regular terrible acidic diet I do not have visual disturbances. No 2, am I just starting off too alkaline for my body to handle, perhaps causing too much detox? I have started and stopped about eight times because of this, one time I decided to keep going no matter what. My eyes were slits, it felt like I had pink eye, I could hardly see anything. No 3, could it have anything to do with fat metabolism? When I follow the alkaline plan I immediately start to lose weight. A couple of years ago, I went on a popular weight loss program, high protein, low carb, and the same problems occurred, for the first 12 lbs, that is, until I stopped losing weight altogether.
    This is all I can think of and I really need to solve this dilemma. My health depends on being able to successfully do this program. It is extremely discouraging to know this is right, have the knowledge about it and the gear to do it and then be derailed by a side effect. Have you ever heard of such a thing and if so what do you reccommend as the solution? I anxiously await your response.

    Thanks, Kim


    • energise ross

      Hey Kim

      Very unusual. As it has happened before with another healthy eating plan, I would think it could be detox symptoms.

      Try to lower the supplement use a little. Also what level of the Chanson are you using? DId you start at level 1 and work up to 3 over a month or so?

    Hi Ross,

    Gila


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hi Gila

      No, absolutely not. The body works through and gets rid of (through sweat and urination) about 2.5 litres per day so you need to at LEAST put this back in. The kidneys go through 2.5 litres every day whether you drink it or not.

  123. Rowena

    More questions, you’ve got me thinking – I guess that’s a good start :)

    1) Can you drink too much water? Can someone at 100-110 kilos really get through 6 litres of water a day without shocking the body?

    2) When starting with, for example a chanson, I remember hearing that one should not start with very high ph. . . start gradually. Isn’t the higher the better? Doesn’t it get you alkaline faster?
    Or does it shock you body somehow, and if so what negative effects would one need to look out for?

    Thanks Ross


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Rowena

      6 litres is a lot – aim for 3 to begin with.

      Regarding the Chanson – yes, you’re exactly right. pH 9.5 is about 1000x more alkaline than tap water and so it does shock the body into a detox right away! Start at alkaline 1 (pH 8) then onto alkaline 2 (pH 9) and then 3 (pH 9.5) – the build up should be over about 4 weeks.

I had my blood function tests and the results came back all clear, I was also tested for allergies and again all clear. At pretty much the same time i started experiencing severe bloating in my abdomen and with that, severe feelings of discomfort. I wouldnt say it was pain but a terrible discomfort. I don’t know if there is any correlation with the itching. it just may be a coincidence but i can’t help feeling there is some connection. The doctor didnt think so though, She suggested I try some medication called “nexium” to see if it relieves the symptoms. It kind of did and it didn’t if you know what i mean. The doctor suggested that i have an ultrasound of the abdomen if it didn’t improve, so i plan to do that next week. If that doesn’t show anything then the next step would be an endoscopy.
    I would appreciate your thoughts and advice on whether you think becoming alkaline would be the way to go to address my problem?
    Thank you
    Cheers

    Hi again,
    back for more filtration info.
    Just to be 100% clear . . .
    You are saying that one needs to buy a separate filter system, AS WELL AS, the chanson miracle max?
    Or do you consider the chanson miracle max filters sufficiently?
    Thanks


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Rowena

      The filter in the MAX is great, industry leading. Some people (about 35% of my customers) prefer to add a prefilter too because they are incredibly powerful and not much extra expense. BUT the choice is yours – it is not something you HAVE to do to make the ionizer work or anything, it’s just there as an option.

    Hi Ross,
    I find your suggestions very educational and informative. I became vegetarian about 4 or 5 years ago inspired by an ayurvedic teacher. I thought I was eating well with lots of vegetables, nuts, pasts and wholemeal bread, don,t drink alcohol and do drink lots of tea and some water. My choice to change was to feel good with in myself not a weight choice but I have actually put on weight which I now find frustrating. As I am in my early 50s a change in hormone levels could be a contributing factor. Have you any suggestions.

    Hi Ross,

    I have been trying to increase the alkaline foods in my diet, but I still like to start my day with a cup of coffee. I am drinking one right now. Should I try to cut this out completely?

    Also, I am very confused about getting the proper amounts of omega-3′s. I have been eating a vegan diet since June, lots of veggies and fruits, but recently have had some “eczema” symptoms, red scaly itchy skin. I was told this was because I was not getting proper essential fatty acids. For a small woman (I am 5’3″, 105 pounds)–how much omega do you recommend?

    Your information has been very helpful so far.

    P.S., I can’t find your smoothie recipe, could you post this again?

    Thank you so very much.


    • energise ross

      Hey again Anna

      Definitely get your omega 3 intake up – the equivalent of 3 tablespoons per day if possible.

      You should try to move coffee into the treat category rather than the daily one :)

      Hi there

      With alkalinity you don’t need to worry about that. Just fill 80% of your plate with fresh, alkaline foods and keep acid-forming foods to 20%. IF you do this you will get an abundance of every nutrient you need.

    Hi Ross,

    I commend you for your wonderful website, information and hard work you put in to it!! I love love love it! You’re fantastic! ;0)

    Can I ask you, if PCOS could be related to an acidic environment? I have always had an irregular cycle (and was probably always acidic!) but now that I’m in my thirties I will soon be thinking of children and I worry because some years I may only have two periods in the whole year.

    The alkaline lifestyle makes sense to me and I have just really started. I need to loose a couple of stone and I’m sure that will happen if I stick to your advice. From what I understand PCOS can develop from an in-balance of hormones. By adding protein to each meal can help with this in-balance and as you said will help with weight loss too. I’m wary of tofu and soya as some studies show they cause an in-balance of hormones. I make my own almond milk instead of using soy milk, I presume that’s ok?

    So,

    Is PCOS caused by an acidic environment?

    Tofu is protein yes, but will it affect my hormone levels as some studies say?

    If I need to add protein to my alkaline salads etc., are lentils, beans, quinoa better than tofu?

    Thank you soooo much!! Look forward to hearing from you.

    Keep up your amazing work :0)

    Cheers
    Julie

      Hey Julie

      Alkaline balance and it’s link to hormone regulation, and especially pregnancy support is something I’m really sure of. Every fertility specialist I’ve spoken to loves the alkaline approach and totally believes in it – even if they call it something different to their clients.

      You can easily get enough protein while limiting tofu and soy. The things you’ve already listed are great and don’t be afraid to have oily fish twice per week too.

      Almond milk – especially homemade – is the best of all milks :)

    Does the alkaline diet reduce cholesterol? My husbands is on the increase and I was
    wondering whether this would assist?

    He is quite the sceptic so if you could explain the science behind it I would be very grateful.

    Many thanks and wishing you all the best for the future.

      Hey Anoushka

      I can’t specifically link any cause and effect – that’s legally something no website can or should do (although many do, and they shouldn’t).

      I would present the information WITHOUT mentioning alkalinity or pH. The basis of this approach to health is to:

      - fill 80% of your diet with fresh, high water content, nutritious vegetables, salads, leafy greens and nuts, seeds, oils, legumes etc
      - keep acid forming foods like high sugar fruits, dairy, meats, fish, grains, pasta, rice etc to 20% or less
      - transition away from sugar, chips, chocolate, cakes, pizzas, baked goods, refined goods, fried foods, takeaways, alcohol etc. These should be seen as a treat.
      - exercise
      - get well hydrated

      Take this to your husband and his doctor (or any doctor) and see if they disagree that this is a healthy lifestyle! This is the alkaline diet!

    Hi Ross – we certainly would start our day with a couple of glasses of green smoothies, much of it organic and straight from the garden. On any day there would be at least six greens in the smoothies, as well as perhaps an orange and lemon.
    Lunch is always a large salad (with a little organic meat or fish). Dinner is very much the same. we use organic coconut oil and olive oil for dressings. There is a large emphasis on raw.
    My question is this. How can someone (now me!) with a severe thyroid problem who is very much following this plan, not lose weight? I have devised very low-sugar, organic dark chocolate ‘treats’ which are hardly treats as the sugar in them is so minute. These are made up of organic coconut and coconut oil. They are extremely satisfying for someone who might otherwise be tempted to cheat. Apart from low-sugar fruits ( a smmall amount in the smoothies) what am I doing wrong?


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Maria

      Can I ask – how much omega 3 are you getting on a daily basis? How much water are you drinking? What is your source of water? Are you exercising? How much fruit and what kind are you having?

      Are you having anything between the juice and lunch?

      With thyroid issues, it can take a little longer – but balancing your diet and filling it with nutrition like this is going to help.

    In all the recent info I keep hearing about how important it is to filter water. When I purchased the chanson i’m pretty sure that I read or saw in one of your vids that a filter was not so important. Is this fairly recent information? Do I need to be investing in a filter to get this properly underway and make it work for me?

    I am 62 and not at all active have dieted and succeeded but then put it all back on and MORE untill now I’m scared to even try:( I live in a village and some of the things I read about that folk are eating I have never heard about how can I start from where I am with what is available ?
    ( hmm it’s just dawned on me that you have to start where you are not where someone else is :)
    Why spelt pasta? I didn’t even know you could get that :) is the ordinary stuff not good then?
    My sister is trying to encourage me to have wheatgrass, tis pretty yuk tho’
    Any suggestions.
    And lemon / lime slice in water? Good or a waste of time
    Well untill I know any better I must do something so I WILL start with what I have and not beat myself up that I’m not doing what all these other folk are achieving

      Great that you’re getting going and clearly look very aware of your own thoughts and are able to squash limiting beliefs as they start!

      Spelt pasta is better than wholemeal which is better than white. If you keep the pasta to 15-20% of your plate for these meals and use wholemeal you’ll be fine.

      A squeeze of lemon juice in wheatgrass makes all the difference!

      Keep it up and good luck

    Hi Ross,

    We normally go and get our water from a spring that is a short drive from where we live. Since I read your information on water my husband went and purchased a ph test kit. We tested our spring water and the ph is 6.8. We then tested our tap water which smells of chemicals and tastes terrible and the ph is 8.2. We are so confused now, is this water better than our pure water from the spring. If i filtered the tap water would it be better. So not sure whats right, we were seriously thinking of buying an ionizer but my husband says we spend all that money for the same result. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards

      Hi Desire

      I’d go for the spring water over the tap water. BUT the ionizer is going to give you a completely different class. It is absolutely nothing like either the water from the spring or the tap!

    Hi Ross
    I am 56 years old woman I have severe oestoperosis the last six years
    I am treated by medication and a yearly zolrdronic acid infusion
    Of which I had three
    The results of my bone density test (dexascan) were getting worse and the hospital told me they are considering outing me on a dayly injection to my stomach which I was dreading
    My hight is 1.60 m and I weigh about 57 kg
    My diet was mainly dairy law fat Greek yogurt a lot of skimmed milk salads seads and meat
    (I love a good steak) as I was told I need the dairy for the calcium
    After two years of the zolrdronic acid not working my Israeli friend and doctor Gideon Ron suggested I was acidic and I should change my diet!!
    I checked my saliva and my urine were very acidic
    My husband found your websites and I changed my diet completely
    I have no dairy I eat a lot of greens (now even more after your last vedios)
    And my Ph went up to normal
    I am doing this for almost two years and my last bone density scan show the same result!!!
    For the first time after six years it did not get worse !!
    I can only say it is up to the diet change because it is the only thing I have changed
    I am realy greatful to you and verry impressed how simple and easy it is to follow your website (I am still verry lawtec) and can’t believe it is all free! All the American websites I have seen try and make you by some vitamins or some drops to make you less acid
    My question is have you had any expirience with oestoperosis sufferer or the link of acid diet to bone dencity?
    Do you know of any research in this subject?

    There is no hurry to answer me I am verry greatful

We talk on the phone regularly discussing the alkaline way of living and he’s eager for me to follow this. I do want to lose weight so much but find I get bored with food very easily. Trying to be alkaline has up to now sounded so daunting and means totally change the way I’ve been eating for 64 years!

    Hi Ross
    I have always been super healthy, active, and hydrated. I have always thrived on a high protein, low gi, low or no gluten eating plan. I have recently been diagnosed with fructose malabsorption, which can lead to me becoming hypoglycaemic If I’m not careful. Salad has been my favourite meal for most of my life, and now it makes me sick! So in becoming fructose free and sticking to lots of proteins and fibre, I have become 75% acidic! I drink a powdered alkaliser drink once or twice a day just for maintenance, but I struggle to eat a good range of foods that give me the energy I need and keep me alkaline or even neutral. Can you help me?? Any suggestions are most welcome!

    Dear Ross,

    Thanks so much for all the info already given on how to be healthier.

    My goal is to be healthier & cut out the things I struggle with. I don’t have a weight issue, but have been developing a slight ‘insulin belt’ around my stomach, think due to all the chocolates (sugar intake) I eat! I have always loved my veggies & eating good, healthy meals, may not have been alkaline based, which is what I am focussed on now, but as much as I love my veggies I struggle with chocolates. I have been weaning off them over the past few weeks and over the last week or two haven’t had any or maybe 1…

    I have been drinking more water (not always filtered) as this has also been a struggle to have enough or at least get some in. It isn’t 3 litres per day, but my intake has increased so much more than I was (about 1.5lts a day which is mostly all in the morning including my lukewarm lemon water (boiled & cooled down to lukewarm). Is it normal to go to the toilet like 10 times per day? My bladder feels so full from my intake and it isn’t even 3 litres!? (Sorry to ask this type of question) Isn’t water good for flushing out the kidneys as well?

    With regards to nuts, almonds are alkaline right? I really enjoy them, but raw aren’t as good as salted, how does this affect them? Does it cancel out the alkalinity or is it ok to eat salted/roasted nuts?

    Is there anything I can do / eat to help with bad circulation?

    Thanks a lot and look forward to your reply.
    Wendy


    • energise ross

      Hey Wendy

      When you first start increasing your water intake it can feel like you’re always going to the loo. This is normal and will improve. Think of your body like a sponge – when you’ve been dehydrated and you put water on it, to begin with it just runs off and doesn’t get absorbed, but the more water you put on, the more it becomes absorbant.

      Nuts – especially almonds are alkaline, but only natural. Salted and roasted are not so good! Try soaking them overnight – it makes them even more delicious!

    Hi Ross,
    What an amazing man you are! I’ve been listening to your other videos and getting your info for many months now, but this is better than ever! It’s turned a light on in my head because it hits the spot so to speak. For many years now well at least since I’ve been perimenopausal I’ve struggled with losing weight. I exercise fairly regularly – I have a workout pool, and I’ve been eating what I considered to be a very healthy diet which has included fish oil and flax seed for a very long time. However it always seems that I end up gaining weight not losing. I’ve done the carb free diet; and lost nothing. But this is so simple to understand – acidic or alkaline. I’ve sent your links to all my chubby friends and family all over the world and several of them have also thought of it as a light bulb moment for them. I don’t have any ph drops or alkaliser for water (I live in Indonesia) so I’m using bicarb for now. I’ve been testing my water, saliva and urine as you suggested and for the first time in 3 days today I’m alkaline!!! I’m very excited and def up for the challenge of seeing what I eat and how it reacts to my ph levels as they were very acidic previously. I have to say for a vegetarian who eats a lot of fruit and veg and gluten free bread and other things I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me and just put it down to hormones. I’m looking forward to seeing a shift in my body now. How very exciting.

    Someone told me recently that reboiling water in the electric kettle etc makes the water become a lot more acidic. Is this true?
    My partner had surgery for prostate cancer last august but the cancer seems to have returned so he is now looking toward having ongoing hormone therapy etc. He has been told that a more alkaline diet and in particular drinking water with lemon juice in it will be of great benefit to him. Do you agree?

      The kidneys digest and process 2.5 litres of water every day. This is how much water your body uses to function on a daily basis. You have to at LEAST replace this. 3 litres is nowhere near going to strain the kidneys!

      You could certainly try these two things:

      1) add some snacks in there, especially omega rich snacks. Things like nuts and seeds, or a stick of celery with almond spread on it etc.
      2) increase the hydration to 2-3 litres

    Hi Ross,

    I wanted to drop you a note to congratulate you on your fantastic series of videos. I have come across the alkaline diet in many ways, I attended a Tony Robbins seminar recently and did a juicing week with Jason Vale a few years back, but the clear and concise way in which you convey and repeat the key messages has helped so much to remind me of the theory as to why we should do the things that are suggested. I have your alkaline recipe book which is fantastic too.

    I am relatively fit and healthy, but do have 3 kilos that I would love to lose. I know the reason for finding this so difficult is some ‘bady’ acidic elements in my diet; I love my daily soy latte, my weekend wine, and am a sucker for all things sweet. Otherwise I do pretty much the good stuff! I love your approach to getting the good stuff first in as opposed to cutting out the bad. This makes it so easy to commit. I am confident that by doing so the bad will naturally become a thing of the past!?!

    I shall pass this on to all I know, as I am so confident that your message and your energetic approach can help so many,

    Thanks again,

    Maura

    Hi Ross,
    Thanks for your info. This makes a lot of sense to me. Just wondering if you can recommend some gluten free recipes please? DIgestion has been an issue for me for a long while- gall bladder removal, mild diverticulosis last year – and a variety of painful reactions to gluten. Sometimes I’m stepping stones in a river to figure out how to keep weight off. I’m very tall and have mostly been lean all my life but, menopause has wreaked havoc with me. Is weight gain also linked to hormone – activity/imbalance? Whole foods and alkaline foods make sense. I’m beginning your steps to the vitality state. Thanks again – you are very generous to share your knowledge, cheers Nicole

    I drink plenty of water a day but perhaps the water I drink is not alkalized. I drink Perrier with Lemon and Lime add my own lime and alkalizing drops.
    I am looking forward to trying the dressings, I love salads.
    I did have today Mixed Green Salad with apple, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. Crab cake.

    Hello Ross,

    thanks for all the information and videos that you provide. They are all very helpful. I started quite well I have deteriorated to only following part of the diet. I find it very difficult meeting up with friends either here at home or out for coffee and a chat.I know that if I stay at home I can be more disciplined. So at the moment I am cheating but I know that I must get on track. I have definately increased my water intake and I am using an alkaline jug at the moment. I have a green juice every day and a green avocado smoothie every day. Also I have at least one green salad and a vegetable dish daily.
    I still miss sugar, bread and carbohydrates quite a lot but it appears from you video that the more I have of these items, the more my body will crave them.I thought that if I just had them sometimes throughout the week it would be ok. Unfortunately this doesn’t seem to be the case. Some days I am very hungry whilst on others I am not. I also find that even though I might not be hungry, I want something to eat. I have lost a few pounds but now seem stuck at the same weight. I would like to lose about a stone and a half.
    I hope that I am not boring you but this is where I am at the moment.
    The fresh food goes off quite quickly so I have to shop fairly frequently.
    With the effort that I am making I know that my energy has increased and my body is generally better.
    I love the himalayan salt. I have enjoyed all the recipes from your alkaline recipe book. I am learning every day.
    So, thank you for all your time and energy.

    Hi Ross,

    I have a question regarding the three Omegas… 3, 6, & 9. I take 2 500 mg tablets of evening primrose oil a day. Each tablet contains the following: 500 mg of evening primrose seed oil, 45 mg of GLA, 350 mg of Cis-Linoleic Acid, 35 mg of Oleic Acid, and 30 mg of Palmitic Acid. Can you tell me if these items are 3, 6, or 9 omegas? Do I need other oils as well?

    I appreciate your assistance and thanks for the great recommendations. I know when I’ve followed your suggestions in the past they have worked well.

    Sincerely,

    Christine


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Christine

      EPO is a good oil to take but is more rich in omega 6 (the GLA) and omega 9 (the Oleic Acid). You need to get some 3 in there and I recommend flax oil (either caps or liquid).

      Adding 1 tablespoon of flax oil to a salad (2 serves, so half a tablespoon for a 1-person salad) plus some lemon juice, salt and pepper is a simple dressing that gets you a good hit of omega 3.

      You should aim for a total consumption of omega 3, 6 and 9 of 3 tablespoons per day and the optimal ratio is 2:1:1 of 3, 6 and 9!

    Hello,

    Thank you very much for your work and information.

    Some questions: Boiled tap water is OK, while I get to buy an ioniser?
    Fruits like pears, apples, grapes, melon, grapefruit, etc are equivalent to green leafs?
    Other vegetables that are not leafy are as good?
    Thank you!


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hi Cecilla

      A much more environmentally efficient way to get bacteria out of water would be to filter. Boiling will only kill bacteria, it won’t remove much else. Even a simple counter-top filter jug would do the trick for now.

      Fruits like pears, apples, grapes and melon are acid forming. Green leafy foods are incredibly alkaline forming – fruit is not comparable – there is no way you can replace green leafy foods with fruits.

      Other vegetables are still awesome – just not quite as great as leafy greens.

      Grapefruit is an exception with the fruits in that it is mildly alkaline forming – but still not as good as leafy greens.

    I’m currently consuming a cup of of each of chopped Broccoli, Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Red Bell Pepper, Spinach – mixed up in a blender with more water. Most days I add an avocado to the mix, or eat separately.

    How much is a serving of green vegetables? A cup? Just wondering how I’m doing.

    By the way, I can feel the difference already after a few days. I seem to have more energy.

      Never feel like a failure Dolly! It’s hard to get past the initial hump of your body craving through it’s yeast and sugar addictions. I used to have this so badly – I was ALWAYS hungry. The most important things you can do are:

      1) get super hydrated – this will really help…a LOT
      2) get lots of omega 3
      3) focus on getting loads of good alkaline foods in even if it’s with some of the bad at first. Eventually the good will crowd out the bad and your body will naturally guide you to this, the better you feel and the longer it goes on.

    I was born with Cerebral Palsy, a spastic condition. For many years I was addicted to prescribed tranquilizers, then alcohol, while eating a lot of meat. And my spasticity has gotten an awful lot worse. Could it be because of an extremely high intake of acids?

    I’ve just began your alkaline program, am eating a lot of meat substitutes–soy dogs and patties and cheese–and am wondering if it’s okay.

    Also since I was ingesting so many acids for so many years, I’m wondering if my acid withdrawal will take a long time.

    Thank you immensely


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hi Richard

      The time it takes to get the ‘benefit’ varies a lot, plus feeling a benefit is very hard to make quantifiable – one persons opinion could be different from the next. I’d say that if you’ve had a long experience with a lot of meats, alcohol and prescription drugs, there may be a bit to get out of your system, but then because you’re coming from quite an acidic lifestyle you may experience a big improvement quickly!

      With the meat alternatives, you have to still make sure you’re getting a high proportion of alkaline, fresh, vegetables and foods. Just swapping meat for soy won’t do too much on it’s own. It will help, but not hugely.

      Get juicing. That is my #1 tip for you! Also, get your omega 3 in!

      With thyroid issues things can take a while. Is your current diet created in partnership with your naturopath?

      The Smoothie sounds pretty good, but would be better without the fruit!

      I am not seeing too much omega oils in there – add a bunch in, whether it’s in dressings or as a supplement.

    Ross,

    How does the alkaline diet fit in with the theory of the blood type diet? I have a 10 year old with emotional/social problems, and we had a blood test done on him. His results partly coincide with an alkaline diet, but not entirely. (He is to have no wheat, gluten, dairy, turkey.) How do you reconcile blood type diets with the alkaline diet? All that you have said makes alot of sense, but why were our ancestors eating differently without the sickness and disease that we have when we are acid?

      Hi Katie

      Our ancestors did not have any refined foods. No sugars, trans fats, dairy, fried foods, takeaways, sodas, refined salts. If you ate a totally ancestral/ paleo diet you would be a lot better off than the standard western diet.

      Can you let me know which types of his blood type diet do not match the alkaline?

    Ross:
    So I feel like I am your target audience: I eat healthfully – indulge occasionally. I do enjoy wine and an occasional martini and I like 1 cup of coffee each morning.

    I have actually used the PH/alkaline test strips and for a week found that I am in the normal zone – not acid.

    That being said, I am a road cyclist, flow yoga, walker runner and have had 10-15 stubborn lbs. that my body has “held” onto for 20 years. I feel like I can eat and drink whatever I want and I rarely fulctuate more that +-3 or 4 lbs. If I could get the weight off (and I will nOT crash diet), I could keep it off.

    thank you for the video – I am open as I am frustrated – does the acid strips tell the truth and second, what do you think of the green powder drinks (from Whole Foods).

      Hey Marcia

      The pH strips are only indicative. Did you test the very first urine and saliva of the day?

      For green drinks definitely check the label, make sure there is no:

      mushroom
      algae
      spirulina
      chlorella
      sweeteners or flavourings of any kind

    I have lost 20 lbs since March and can’t believe how easy it was to lose weight. Your web site and videos have helped me so much. One question I have is do you add wheat germ to your foods? I add this to my spelt flakes cereal and don’t know if I should be doing this. Thanks again for the huge contribution you have made to my quality of life.

      I stay away from wheat as much as possible. There is a great alternative called LSA (ground linseed, sunflower seed and almonds) – great for fiber and omega oils.

      I’m so glad I’ve been able to help you so much so far!

    I have been suffering from candida, leaky gut, IBS, the whole bit for the last 3 years. I have tried the raw food diet, blood type diet, candida diet, juicing, etc. Juicing seemed to help, but I felt like I wasn’t getting enough protein. I was just juicing with vegetables and didn’t add any healthy fats…could this be why? I am really into cross-fit workouts and after juicing for a couple days I had absolutely NO energy. Ive cut out all white products, sugars (except stevia), gluten & breads, and all dairy. I am starting to incorporate some almonds and nuts into my diet, but it makes me bloat and feel miserable! I even tried soaking them! Maybe i’m just one that can’t tolerate nuts..idk. I just wondered what you would do in my situation. I would like to lose at least 15 lbs. I just purchased the chanson water ionizer max and LOVE it but feel like I haven’t seen much of a change in body (it’s only been 2 weeks). I consume on average 8-10 liters of that water daily. This may seem like a lot to some but I am ALWAYS thirsty! Could this be a sign for something else? And would you suggest me taking a probiotic?
    Let me know your thoughts! & Thanks for ALL your advice so far!

    Hi Ross,

    I’m interested in the Chanson ionizer (I’ve been looking at all kinds – trying to compare to Kangan but save on the $$).

    Your link doesn’t give any Canadian prices. Can you give me Canadian prices on the machine? Grand total and what it would cost monthly. Also, how much are the filters and could I buy them in Canada in the future? What happens if something goes wrong with the machine – what is the warranty – and would I have to ship it all the way back to the UK?

    Do you know of where I could buy this in Canada?

    Thanks,

    Hi Ross,

    For breakfast, I make a meusli with organic oats, seeds and nuts. I generally use rrice milk. I was wondering:

    1. Is my breakfast alkaline or acid?

    2. I would like to change my mile to almond milk (e.g. Alpro) which is now widely available at the supermarket. Is this milk OK in terms of alkalinity?

    Many thanks

      Almond is actually the best of the soy/nut milks, but be careful as brands often add heaps of sugar, sweeteners, malts etc to make it palatable to the dairy market!

    thanks so much for this informaiton. I will get started today. I’ve been diagnosed with IBS and I am about 50 pounds overweight. I am one of those people that eats the following and still cannot lose weight:
    breakfast normally one egg one turkey sausage or bagel
    snack sometimes fruit
    lunch 1/2 sandwich and small salad
    dinner peice of chicken or fish and green or salad

    I don’t drink as much water as I should. Again thanks I just spent two days sick in bed with stomach problems that I know is related to my acidity condition in my gut.

    I will follow this and follow up with you.
    Cordially,

      This type of food will not cause weight loss. In your diet the following are acid forming:

      agg
      turkey
      bagel
      fruit
      bread
      chicken

      Follow the suggestions in these videos, they will really help. Get your green food up, water up and omega oils up.

    Hi Ross,
    I love your site and really trying to follow your strategies – my problem is I seem to have overdone it and got terribly unwell on a couple of occasions w dizziness, numbness in face, arms and legs and feeling very odd. I believe this is due to the body being too alkalide.
    I have been using the green powders, ph drops, ph salt 3 times per day and eating masses of veg/veg juices. How can I make sure this does not happen again?
    I have bought water that is meant to be ph 8 – is it safe to drink 4 litres of this water.
    Would love to hear from you :)
    Lol Sofia


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hi Sofia

      There are a million reasons and variables that could be at play here. If you are getting masses of veggies, cut right back on the supplements for a week and see how you feel. How much of the pH drops are you using? Never use more than stated – this could easily be the cause.

      Also I personally use the salt 1 spoon split throughout the day rather than 3 spoons.

      Try these suggestions and let me know how you go.

    Hello Ross:

    My question is on Zylitol, a sweetener that is made from birch bark. In my reading it was stated that zylitol is alkaline, will help to remineralize teeth and bones, and bacteria will not grow on it. If this is all correct, wouldn’t it be ok to use it while on an alkaline diet?

    The first two videos were exciting. I’m looking forward to the third.

      Hey Christa

      Xylitol is (with stevia) the best of a bad bunch, but should still be used in moderation. I would look to alkaline minerals to help remineralise.

      Everything you need to live a more alkaline life is in the videos and in the downloads.

      Focus on the alkaline foods I mentioned – spinach, cucumber, lettuce, celery – all vegetables, plus low sugar fruits like avocado, grapefriuit, lemon, lime and nuts and seeds, legumes, pulses, sprouted grains and get lots of hydration and omega oils.

    Hi, Ross,

    I’m just curious why the Atkins diet, which is very acidic, promotes weight loss? Isn’t the body storing the acid as fat?

    Also, there is the belief that one must eat several times a day and eat the required calories to boost the metabolism and avoid storing fat. So, why are anorexic people thin when they consume less than 500 calories a day?

    Thanks..I enjoy your videos.


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hi MaryAnn

      You’ll find most people who have tried Atkins end up putting all of the weight back on plus more. It doesn’t address the cause of weight gain and it doesn’t give a lifestyle that can be implemented for life.

      Anorexic people are dangerously thin because they are horribly acidic. Being underweight is as much of a sign of acidity as overweight. Plus their body has been forced to consume all of their muscle for energy, as well as fat.

      Thanks
      Ross

But I am enjoying it. I have few questions if you could plz help me with. Like I told you before I have hypothyroidism and I’m diabetic type 2. If I make juice out of: kale, spinach, cucumber, carrot, bell pepper, celery, and broccoli every day would that be bad for my hypothyroidism? Just making sure cuz I take synthyroid for it early in the morning. And if you think the ingredients are ok for me then could you plz tell me what else I should take with the juice to make it either a complete meal or snack, for example, protein or fat? Also, how much of each veggies should I take for one person serving to make juice. Sorry to bother you soo much, but you are truly an angel to me :) Thnx.

      Hi Asma

      I’m not legally allowed to relate any comment or question to a specifically diagnosed condition. Please do follow up with your doctor though. I can’t see any doctor having a problem with you drinking fresh vegetable juice, but these are the laws :)

      There is no exact science behind the quantities to a juice – just put enough through to fill your glass! I also like to water it down a bit to make it a little thinner and get the extra hydration too.

      Alongside the juice, a salad wrap, or avocado and tomato on sprouted bread (drizzled with hemp oil) is good. Any of the following are also great:

      - buckwheat cereal with almond or rice milk
      - quinoa topped with coconut cream
      - simple oats cooked in water with almond or coconut milk added at the end

    I find that your information on alkaline weight loss to be excellent and will help anyone who is trying to lose weight to see it fall right off. I know this because it has worked for me when I really wasn’t trying to lose weight but just improved my health. My weight went from 159 pounds to now 120 pounds which I think is my true weight now. I seem to be stabilized at 120 pounds. I had been following a lot of the suggestions you have made for weight loss already, but now I would like to put some type of daily order to my eating and drinking habits and I think you have helped me to get back on track with the information in this weight loss program. A question I have though is, it appears to me when I drink a lot of alkaline water my skin and hair appears to get very dry and my body inside feels acidic to the point where I have to stop because it becomes miserable for me. (I also have very poor digestion and I think I am low on good fats) So do you drink alkaline water all day I’ve been drink 8.5 to 9.5 or interchanged with Spring water? I’m also thinking it could be yeast if so did I understand you to say continue to drink the alkaline water and that will help to destroy some of the yeast?
    Thanks, your work is God sent to me.

    The recipe is this: Mixing organic maple syrup with Red Mill baking soda and taking 3 tsp a day as a regular part of your dietary routine is supposed to raise your alkalinity. They also mentioned that 5-6 tsp will help alleviate brain tumors.

    My question regards the water and how to make it more alkaline. I suffer from thyroid dysfunction
    and had a recommendation to get a filter that removes fluoride which is proven quite damaging -
    unfortunately the reverse osmosis filter I’m thinking of getting removes a lot of minerals and other ‘goodies’ from the water. I was wondering if Chanson ionizer removes fluoride and/or it can be used in conjunction with the reverse-osmosis filter (?)

    Hi
    Thanks for the tips. I am not following a weight loss programme. But a 21 day detox, for my Reiki 1 attunment. I have cut out all wheat, dairy, coffee, sugar and alcohol (which i have done before to clear psoriasis), the new ones for me are I’ve quit smoking, carrying around green juice really helps me for cravings. I want to reach good alkalinity and following most of your advice already.
    I wanted a good list of smoothies, I bought fruits that may not be helping. Plums, peaches, nectarines, physalis, banana, apples, pears, mangos. I use spirulina, wheat grass barley powder, and different green leaves.
    Any smoothy advice welcomed (couldnt find the link you mentioned in your vid or article)
    Thanks!!!!!

    Dear Ross,
    Could you please let me know what e-mail I should write regarding a purchase I made. I only wanted the published and e-mail book, not the seminar. I sent an e-mail as soon as I received the link to explain it was only the book I wanted but I have received no answer. Could you please have your customer service get bak to me. Thank you. EXCITED to START Alkaline.Thank you.

    Sorry that message sent before i had finished. The doctor suggested that i have an ultrasound of the abdomen if it didn’t improve, so i plan to do that next week. If that doesn’t show anything then the next step would be an endoscopy.
    I would appreciate your thoughts and advice on this.
    Thank you
    Cheers

    Hi Ross,

    What if you have to be on the alkaline diet but you don’t want to loose any weight? I am already under weight! My main focus is to try to stay alkaline to help my osteoporosis by keeping the calcium in my bones. So how do you stay at your present weight and stay on your diet?

    Thanks, Marie Weaver

    Hi Ross
    I don’t know if you can help me, but in the last 2 weeks i have been itchy pretty much from head to toe, no rash though.This seems to be worse at night after i go to bed. I had my blood function tests and the results came back all clear, I was also tested for allergies and again all clear. At pretty much the same time i started experiencing severe bloating in my abdomen and with that, severe feelings of discomfort. I wouldnt say it was pain but a terrible discomfort. I don’t know if there is any correlation with the itching. it just may be a coincidence but i can’t help feeling there is some connection. The doctor didnt think so though, She suggested I try some medication called “nexium” to see if it relieves the symptoms. It kind of did and it didn’t if you know what i mean…..Checking these symptoms on the net is not a good idea because it talks about the possibility of cancers eg stomach cancer etc (horrible).

    Hello Ross,
    Just want to thank you for your fabulous, amazing, thrilling information and enthousiasm.
    Love your videos and your receipts and forward to all my friends. And, yes you have really
    made me understand and integrate the importance of an alkaline body. Thank you!

    Hey Ross,

    I think it would be an excellent idea for you to place the audio transcript among the available downloads directly under the video :) I like to read as well as listen so that would be greatly appreciated plus I would be able to read the transcript anywhere and not rely on my pc.

    I have used Intermittent Fasting for a few weeks however I am positive that I am not consuming sufficient food and nutrients to see its true benefits. As for an alkalizing diet, I believe that I am indeed falling short in my omegas. For the last few days I have been eating a lot more spinach, avocado, chinese cabbage, celery and lentil peas. I use your guide to a serving of greens for the day. I still eat stuff like bread and chocolate at times though so I think that is where I have to work harder…that and my fat intake.

    I look forward to doing my best to make whichever recipe I can at the moment and making the transition to a more alkaline diet.

    Have a good day and thank you for the great tools!

I am very thankful for all of your hard work, just to make it simple for me to follow. Will let you know how the weight is falling off as it progresses.

    Thank you for taking the time and effort to put this information together in such a clear and concise way. I cannot wait to “flick my fat loss switch”!

    I will be showing your videos to my children, who watched “Food Matters” and made the effort to cut out the bad foods snacks, from their otherwise healthy diet. To be able to educate teenagers in ways to improve their health now and for the rest of their lives is so important, they will pay more attention to a film or video than their mum!

    Will let you know how my fat melting goes.

    Can I use oils such as avacado or olive to fry onions and garlic and the like in pan on a fairly gentle heat?

    I’m enjoying you videos. They are a great reminder and inspiration to get back on track. Especially during winter, it is amazing how easy it is to just slowly stop drinking enough water.

    Hi Ross

    I have always eaten a high veg, grain (brown rice, millet and quinoa) and pulse diet. I am gluten and diary and most nuts and egg intolerant. So I never eat any fast food ever. I supplement with Omega 3 for many years along with Vita C, D and magnesium, zinc, calcium. I use 3g L-glutamine in powered form. I make my own breads and flat breads with ground linseeds and sesame seeds. Flour made from potato, rice, chickpea flours – I have a very healthy appetite so never deprive myself.

    I am not at all fat as I am 1.66cm and weigh 60kg. I do approx 9 hr of exercise a week.
    I drink approx 3 liters of water a day, excluding herbal teas. We have an H20 water filtration system on our taps.

    I used to eat quite alot of sugar but since June this year, I have not eaten any candy and substituted dates and goji berries to cope with the sugar cravings, but now I’m down to 2 handfuls of raisins on some days.

    In the last two weeks I have added veg juice in the morning, the problem is that in the last two weeks I’ve gone from 58 kg to 60 kg – HELP what’s gone wrong. My ideal weight is 57kg but seems the healthier i try to be the further the goal is getting.

    typical meals, Breakfast – green juice with 2 stalks celery, 10cm piece cucumber, lemon juice, pear, 1 carrot followed by 1/3 cup millet with cucumber, tomato, celery, 1/2 avo and fresh lemon juice. Lunch – salad, with lettuce and spinach with olives and drizzled with tahini / or if I ahve not had grain for breakfast then a nori, millet, rocket and tahini wrap – supper lentil and bean daal. I only use extra virgin coconut and olive oils. and only very occasionally share lindt dark choc with my husband approx 50gm. I snack on green apples, carrots and red peppers if I’m peckish. Every day I climb on the scale it seems to go up 200gm

    the only good thing since cutting out the sugar is that I noticed that I am no longer hypoglycemic – is there an adjustment period before my body loses the extra kilo’s?

    Thanks would love any feedback
    Michelle XxX ps. I have recently ordered Food Matters – so waiting for it too arrive

    Hi Ross,
    I have been reading your information and following your videos for some time now as am very health conscious. I have been in the know for some years now in regards to assisting the body to get into and then maintain the alkaline state. I came across a product a few years back, it is “Alka Vita Mineral Supplement Concentrate Drops”. Often when I think of it I just add between 6-12 drops into my water bottle to assist with the pH balance. My question is, are you familiar with this product and if so I would really appreciate your thoughts on taking this supplement as a regular addition into the diet.
    We live in NZ, our water is rain water off the roof and we grow volumes of our own veges and fruit (without the pesticides), so have no issue with getting in the greens etc. This product mentioned I purchased when my Mum was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer so we were on a mission to get her back to health, sadly we could not win over her aggressive cancer. My understanding is that cancer likes and thrives in an acidic body, hence my determination to conquer this in myself and also be able to pass the knowledge onto others. Really appreciate your response in regard to the drops and all the best for your future objectives, I will certainly be staying tuned! Thanks again and kind regards, Chrystal

    I am a 62 year old female. I am having Thyroid problems. Will eating this way be OK for the thyroid. My husband died of cancer in 2009. The whole event has effected my health for the worse. I was eating green smoothies with fruit. Then I got hooked on Starbucks. Recently I have been eating lots of salads, but I have no energy and lots of brain fog. Is there a way to help the thyroid quickly?

    Hi Ross. Great video. I have read the PH miracle three times now to absorb all the content and have implemented the changes to my life and the results are incredible in many ways. I am sold on the alkaline diet/hydration and supplement with Robs green powders but one question which is not discussed is whether the alkaline diet will reduce Blood Urate levels(Uric Acid) and in so doing reduce the crystallization of the uric acid into gouty arthritis? Have you had any experiences of this amongst your readers in the past? Please reply to my email address also as I do not check the bulletin boards that often.
    many thanks and great work!

    Hi Ross,
    I have an auto-immune condition and it has been recommended that I try a more alkaline morning drink than orange juice. I have only just viewed your video (Wow!) but purchased Synergy100% Organic Super Greens a few days ago. Firstly, I have to say that it tastes AWFUL. My question is how can I take it in a more pleasant form?
    I will be taking on your suggestions of increased hydration and alkaline foods but was hoping you could assist me with some ideas for making what tastes like fish food … no I haven’t ever eaten fish food … just smelled it :-) into something more palatable.
    Thanks for some excellent ideas and thanks for your obvious passion.

    Morning Ross,
    I have started this alkaline journey this week. Today I nearly gave up, but I really do want to lose weight, so I had a wonderful juice of apple, carrot, pineapple, celery, spinach and ginger. It was great. I know that the release of toxins takes a while to get out of the system, so I am going to persevere! Now for a big glass of filtered water before the gym.

    Thanks !

  296. Mac Stewart

    Hi Ross,

    The major difficulty for me with the alkaline diet is that as you say yourself the information given by different people is contradictory. I have 3 books (Vasey, Young and Schoffro) and they disagree as to what is and what is not alkaline. I have decided not to buy any more books!

    Do you have any views on the following: bananas (alkaline when ripe?), eggs (I have seen classified as alkaline), curry spices, potatoes (old or young, peeled or not), goat butter/cheese, organ meats (less acid than normal cuts?), organic meat (less acid?), white meat less acid than red?, dried fruits (figs in particular)
    Artificial sweeteners are acid, but there is one sugar substitute (xylitol) which appears to be not only harmless but beneficial, and as far as I can see alkaline! Seems to be ideal.
    Finally, Mr Vasey classifies lemons (and some other fruits) as either acid or alkaline according to a person’s make-up…. Do you agree with that? If so, how do you find out?

    Many thanks for your willingness to answer questions and for your enthusiasm in a very good cause.

    Best regards

    Mac Stewart


    • energise ross

      Hey Mac

      Firstly, I know from memory that I owe you an answer to questions you asked me in September via email. Sorry about that – I hope I cover it all in this answer!

      Man, the worst thing about the health industry is the contradiction. Makes everyone’s life a pain – why can’t everyone just agree with ME! :)

      Vasey, Young, Schoffro and others all disagree on certain elements. However, I stick with Young because:

      a) I’ve seen in person, first hand how utterly obsessed with research and practice he is.
      b) I believe he is the only one who is actively treating people with this approach in a scientific way
      c) I and all the people I’ve coached have gotten amazing results with his approach.

      Now – don’t buy any more books! Just stick with the pH Miracle and my site :)

      OK:

      Bananas – very acid forming when ripe, inedible when unripe – just forget about them!
      Eggs – definitely DEFINITELY not alkaline
      Curry Spices – absolutely fine
      Potatoes – the older the more acidic. Young, new potatoes are OK in moderation
      Goat Products – better than cows, but still not designed for human consumption really. OK as a treat in moderation.
      Organic everything is less acid, but keep to less than 20% of the diet
      For meats it goes in this order (worst to best) pork, beef, chicken, turkey – oily fish is best for protein
      Dried fruits – worse than undried as their sugars are concentrated

      For sweeteners, Xylitol and Stevia are the best of the bunch, but use in moderation and try to transition away from them.

      Lemons are definitely alkaline forming! I don’t believe in people’s make up having that big an effect.

      Thanks Mac! Hope this helps

    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hi Jo

      It depends on the filter, but largely speaking it’s probably ok. Make sure you change the filter cartridges every 12 months though – after 12 months most filters start to break down and put all of the toxins they’ve filtered out back into your water.

    Ross,
    I am very good throughout the day but I find that at dinner I fall off the wagon. Is there anything I can do right after to help to alkaline myself again? Can I do a green smoothie or drink some powdered wheat grass juice?
    Thanks,


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Liz

      Having a green smoothie is probably not sustainable. If you’re having an acid-forming dinner you probably feel a bit sluggish after that and the last thing you’ll want to do is get up and make a smoothie!

      Green powder will help, so will alkaline salts – such as pHour Salts – but ultimately you have to work, slowly, to get your dinner to an alkaline place.

      Start by ADDING alkaline foods to your existing dinners.

      Can you let me know what kind of dinners you’re having?

    Hi Ross, I’ve got candida, what juicing would you suggest, ie alkaline juicing to help starve off candida.
    Many thanks from the west of Ireland
    :)


    • energise ross
      2 years ago

      Hey Deirdre

      Alkalising is perfect for people with candida – it starves the yeast and very quickly gets it out of the body. I’ve never seen anything that alkalising is better for!

      Juicing green vegetables (predominantly) will fast track this:

      - celery
      - cucumber
      - spinach
      - lettuce
      - rocket
      - watercress
      - kale
      - beets
      - Asian greens

      These are all great – along with a little carrot, beetroot, ginger, mint.

      Of course, you don’t need to put these in all the same drink! But a good base is cucumber, spinach and celery and then add whatever else you like!

      I suggest watering down your juices with an extra 30% water, this helps the body digest a little and makes your juice go a little further!

      This gets the good in – and I’d recommend cutting back on ‘white’ stuff, breads, pastas, sugars, fruits and rice.

    Hey Ross,

    Thanks so much for answering my last comment, I just have one question I’m hoping you can help me with after watching your second video.

    Is there anything I can do to stop the Bread and Pasta cravings?!! They’re drive me crazy, I’ve been trying to quit bread since I was 18 (Now 24), and my mum had an easier time quitting cigarettes :P

    -Kathryn :-)

      Hey Kathryn

      Wow, I haven’t even told anyone this is live yet! The bread and pasta cravings are due to two closely linked things:

      1) sugar addictions in your body leading to erratic blood sugar levels
      2) candida overgrowth in your body.

      The more alkaline you get the easier this will get. In the short term, still have pasta and rice and bread etc, but make it 15-20% of your plate, rather than the traditional 60-70% people normally have. Make it the size of a side serve.

      I still have pasta and rice – but its always brown and never more than 20% of the meal.

      For breads, go for yeast free for now – this will help ease you off while not feeding the yeast cravings you’re getting.

      I hope this helps!

        p.s. sugar cravings can often be solved with alkaline salts – look up Dr Young’s pHlavor Salts on http://www.energiseforlife.com
