Kube Studios: The Alkaline Diet Program

Kube Studios: The Alkaline Diet Program

Being in the modelling industry, we hear about all the trends and diets every day in Kube Studios. One that sounded interesting was the Alkaline Diet Program and how it might work for models. 

The diet involves eating mostly alkaline foods and aims to keep the body's pH level between 7.35 and 7.45. They suggest eating 80 percent alkaline foods and 20 percent acidic. It may sound easier than it is though!

Which foods are acidic? The majority of foods break down in our bodies into either acidic or alkaline bases. The most alkaline foods are fresh fruit, vegetables, roots, nuts, dates, figs, lemons.. and so forth. Pasta, wheat, dairy, alcohol and meat are unfortunately not and should be avoided according to the program. If you should go for the full diet, replace meat protein with other sources or you might find yourself weak and malnourished. 

The benefits of having an alkaline system are numerous and have been studied by many a Phd student. When done properly, and balanced, the diet can improve energy levels, memory, prevent headaches, bloating, heart disease, muscle pain and insomnia. Sounds good right!
