Ever heard of the alkaline diet?
“The pH Miracle”?
It was popularised by celebs like Kate Hudson
^^^ she’s in Bride Wars and How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days (I have great taste, I know)
The diet is based on the “miracle” idea that certain foods
^^^ like meat, sugar and wheat
Make your body too acidic
^^^ causing diseases like cancer, muscle loss, back pain, bone loss etc.
Well anyway, Robert Young (the creator of the diet)
Now faces 3 years in prison
Apparently, he charged $77,000 for his miracle treatment that would make your body more alkaline
One women battling breast cancer paid $77,000 for a treatment predominantly based on sodium bicarbonate
^^^ Yes, the same sodium bicarbonate on special off in Waitrose for 86p
Another women was given sodium bicarbonate drips for $550 each
Young is facing EVEN more charges after advising a patient to go against having medical treatment.
Now, yes, certain foods can be “acidic”
Certain foods can cause inflammation.
^^^ if you have an allergy or an intolerance
But guess what?
You don’t just eat food
You eat meals, right?
You combine foods
Meats, veggies, potatoes, rice, bread, fruit, pasta, milk, eggs etc…
To make them tasty.
To save time so all of your family eat together, are nourished and full of energy to be happy and productive with your days and have a restful night’s sleep
^^ And THIS creates a neutral pH (particularly veggies)
But what’s even more annoying about these “diet gurus” is that their “miracle” ideas are based on complete nonsense
Even if you do ONLY eat “acidic” foods
Your kidneys work that bit harder
And your pH levels stay pretty much the same.
^^^ It’s a bit like say ‘don’t run too fast as you’ll make your lungs work harder’
Now, don’t get me wrong, telling someone to eat more “alkaline” foods could help you get slim and lose weight
After all, it basically says eat more veggies
But to say that certain foods are causing x, y and z diseases
To make you fear “bad” foods
Develop anxiety around social events through becoming scared of “acidic” foods
^^ as was reported by someone following the diet
Is NOT healthy
And is actually pretty stressful
Which in turn, might just make you gain weight and lose sleep
Because we know that it’s not actually the diet itself that dictates whether you ditch the love handles for good
But rather…how you respond to it
Can you stick to it?
Is it draining your willpower so much that you binge at the weekend and offset all of your hard work leaving you at the old:
“Diet starts Monday” stage every week?
And it’s exactly why I promise just ONE thing in my Female Fat Loss Mastery programme:
To make things so simple for you (Not easy)

And this means (as long as you want it and can tolerate it):
I could go on

Spend more time stressing about your kids semi final football match this Sunday
