The pH Miracle diet it the latest and greatest diet on the horizon. Health experts are aware that new diets fade in and out of style. The 1990s saw the rise and fall of low-fat diets. The early 2000’s saw the rise and fall of low-carbohydrate diets such as The Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet, Protein Power and Sugarbusters. People will attempt a new diet after failing with their current one. A new diet on the rise is the pH Miracle Diet.
Turning completely away from the high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets of the immediate past, the pH Miracle Diet offers a new appeal. Robert Young took nutrition to another level and created the pH Miracle Diet which is also known as the Young Diet or the Alkaline Diet. Holisitic doctors and nutritionists seem to agree that this new diet looks at what the body actually needs and is well-balanced.
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 gives great credence to this. It is no secret to nutritionists and health proponents, that we are what we eat and what we eat affects how we feel and how healthy we are. As an industry, most doctors advise a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products; however, the pH Miracle diet takes this to another level. It shows that by eating acidic foods, your body loses minerals it needs to function. By eating the pH Miracle Diet way, a person is forgoing the foods that can harm their body.
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.
The pH Miracle Diet also restricts all meats and dairy products. The exception is goat milk due to it’s slight alkaline quality. You can load up on protein in the form of beans, nuts, tofu and seeds. Alkaline foods include most vegetables except for mushrooms. Fruits that are allowed are grapefruit, coconut, lemon and lime.
According to people who have tried the pH Miracle diet, you will feel beneficial effects on your health within the first two to three weeks of starting the diet. Regardless of if you follow this specific diet, eating less processed foods and more vegetable is good for your health. This has actually been a criticism of the pH Miracle Diet. Those against this diet claim that for those who already eat healthy and drink a lot of water, no future gains can be had from the diet. They are not taking into account the balance of acid and alkaline in the body.
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.
