Principle 2 of Eating the Alkaline Way: Eat 60-80% Alkaline-Forming Foods
October 20, 2017
Principle 2 of eating the Alkaline Way is to select predominately alkaline foods. If you are already in good health, we recommend eating at least 60% alkaline-forming foods. If your immune system is compromised or reacting to something or your health needs to be restored in any way, we suggest an 80% alkalinizing diet, to help calm your immune system and support digestion.
Refer to the Food & Chemical Effects on Acid/Alkaline Body Chemical Balance chart (AACHRT. PERQUE.COM) to learn about acid-forming and alkaline-forming foods. Those foods that are alkalinizing and that you most enjoy will become the cornerstones of your shopping lists—the staples of your personal healthy eating plan. You will refer to this chart frequently when creating shopping lists.
