The hip new diet on the market is the pH Miracle diet. Health experts have seen that new diets tend to rise and fall in popularity. For instance, the diets of the 1990’s fixated on low-fat and the diets after the turn of the century were all fixated on low-carbohydrates. The Atkins diet, South Beach diet, Protein Power and Sugarbusters all revolved around low-carbohydrates. When a diet stops working, or the results someone wants are not achieved, they will usually turn to another diet. The pH Miracle Diet offers a new approach to dieting.
The pH Miracle Diet offers relief from the low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets of the past few years. The diet approaches nutrition from a new way and was created by Robert Young. The diet is also known as the Young Diet or the Alkaline Diet. The new approach is looking at what the human body needs and balancing those needs. Nutritionists and Holisitic doctors agree with this approach.
A slight alkaline quality exhibits in the human body’s pH. Since our body functions this pH level, in theory, the foods we eat should also be alkaline. The foods we currently eat, such as sugar, animal protein, caffience and processed foods, are all acidic foods. These acidic foods unbalance the pH in our bodies and contribute to other health problems. Supporters of the pH Miracle diet will tell you that how our body deals with alkaline minerals is affected by the acidic foods we eat. These minerals are sodium, potasssium, magnesium and calcium to name a few, and can all play a role in chronic diseases.
The pH Miracle Diet revolves around this concept. Nutritionist and health nuts agree that anything a person puts into their body contributes to how a person feels and their overall health. Mainstream doctors will certainly advocate a well balanced diet that includes fruit, vegetables, proteins and dairy products; but the pH Miracle diet goes beyond this. The diet stresses how ingesting acidic foods will eliminate essential minerals from your body. By adhering to the pH Miracle diet, a person is not eating dangerous foods that can wreak havoc on their bodies.
A lot of common foods are not allowed on the pH Miracle diet. Wheat and wheat products are a banned food prouct on the diet. You are probably wondering why as many, including the FDA, consider whole wheat products to be healthy. The pH Miracle Diet shows that grains such as wheat, oats, rice and millet are actually acidic and are harmful to our bodies. Only alkaline grains such as buckwheat, quinoa and spelt are encouraged.
Diary products and meats are also not allowed on the pH Miracle Diet. Goat milk is slightly alkaline so you can have some of that. To get protein you can eat beans, tofu, nuts and seeds. Except for mushrooms, most vegetables are alkaline and are promoted. Grapefruit, coconut, lemon and lime are the only vegetables allowed.
Within the first few weeks of going on the pH Miracle Diet you will see positive effects on your health, according to people who have tried it. Reducing processed foods and adding vegetables to your diet is good for your health, whether you adhere to this diet or not. The pH Miracle Diet’s detractors that this is the problem with the diet. If you are already eating a fresh and balanced diet and ingesting enough water, following the diet won’t make a difference. But this theory does not account for the acid and alkaline in our bodies.
There has not been scientific tests or published results yet on the principles behding the pH Miracle Diet. The conventional medical industry does not give much credence to the diet either. The science behind the diet relies on Chinese and holisitic medicine that have been practiced for several hundred years. Johns Hopkins University and Dr. Neil Solomon with the United Nations are both conducting research studies on the these principles. What their findings reveal may proof the critics of the pH Miracle Diet wrong.
