Tips and Swaps for a More Alkalising Diet


A typical diet consists of 70-80% acid-forming foods and only 20-30% alkaline forming foods, while in fact it should be reversed; 70-80% alkaline forming foods and only 20-30% acid-forming foods. Consuming predominantly acid-forming foods creates a highly acidic environment within the body which can lead to a number of health complications down the track. Consuming a more alkaline diet greatly contributes to wellness and is so much easier than you may think, where simple steps can be taken to increase alkaline-forming foods in the diet.



Firstly, limit your intake of protein. By not exceeding your RDI of protein 50g you can reduce the net acid load, thereby relieving your body from having to work extra hard.

Secondly, eat more fruits and vegetables. Particularly, vegetables high in calcium, magnesium and potassium, such as greens, will increase the alkaline residue after metabolism.

Thirdly, limit your salt intake. Salt negatively influences the all-important acid-alkaline balance. Therefore, by reducing your intake of salt, you help reduce the stress on your body.

Below are some simple swaps which can easily be made in the typical diet to become more alkaline.
