The common foods that people usually eat release either alkaline base or acid into the blood after they pass the digestion process. Foods such as meat, fish, poultry, grains, shellfish, salt, milk and cheese produce acid. Overconsumption of acid releasing foods can cause the body to become over acidic and dispossess of its minerals. In the long run, people who failed to balance their diet with essential alkaline foods may become apt to develop chronic diseases and gain weight. This book has various alkaline diet recipes which will help you to follow the diet.
