If you are looking for a smart way to increase energy levels, get the ideal body, and stay away from problems caused due to inflammation, then you should indeed think about switching to an alkaline diet.

What it means is that you should choose to follow a diet that includes foods that are alkaline-forming as opposed to acid-forming. When you do so, it helps your body maintain the ideal pH of 7.365, which encourages a healthy body and life.

When you consume drinks and food that have an acidic effect on your body, you are forcing your body to neutralize these excess acids, and in this processing is where the damage happens. This process of repetitive neutralization of acids leads to inflammation in the body, your immune system starts overreacting, and you start suffering weight gain, poor digestion, and chronic fatigue.

When you eat foods that give your body alkalinity, it gets the nutrients it needs to stay healthy, and it also makes you feel fit.

Turn over a green leaf

Leafy greens are known to be extremely high on the alkalinity scale, and they are the highest carriers of vitamins, minerals and many other nutrients.

To follow a diet that is rich on the alkaline scale, include the following: spinach, kale, arugula, lettuce and chard. This will help increase your energy levels, you will lose weight more quickly, and experience increases vitality as well.

Stay hydrated

Most people who suffer from fatigue are often those that do not stay adequately hydrated. Make sure that you do get the required amount of water your body needs to stay healthy. Eight glasses of water in a day is ideal; however, more will help as well.

Start the day with a glass of warm water with a dash of lemon, and this ensures that you have started the day off well hydrated and packed with alkalinity you need. Say goodbye to black tea and coffee and instead choose alternatives such as herbal teas like peppermint and rooibos.

Are you getting enough oil?

Ensuring that you get the right amount of omega 3 oil is essential, this helps support various bodily functions and processes. Omega 3 is an essential nutrient, and it cannot be formed alone, you will have to help your body manufacture it, and that will happen by eating right.

Ensuring that you eat foods that are rich in Omega 3 and also include supplements to meet the target will make sure that you achieve more energy, digest better, think clearer and recover better from when you exercise.

Eliminate acids

Try and give up foods and drinks that are acid causing like soda, sugar, processed meats and grains that are gluten causing. Start cutting back slowly and substitute these with healthy alkaline-rich foods and see a magical difference.

Say goodbye to stress

Stress has a significant impact on your body, sometimes even more than the food and drinks that we consume. Try and stay away from stress as much as you can, and this will help maintain the alkaline levels in your body and also help keep you healthy.
