Book Description

June 10 2006

In the last few years, researchers around the world have increasingly reported the importance of acid-alkaline balance. The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide was designed as an easy-to-follow guide to the most common foods that influence your body’s pH level. Now in its Second Edition, this bestseller has been expanded to include many more domestic and international foods. Updated information also explores (and refutes) the myths about pH balance and diet, and guides the reader to supplements that can help the body achieve a healthy pH level.

The Acid-Alkaline Food Guide begins by explaining how the acid-alkaline environment of the body is influenced by foods. It then presents a list of thousands of foods and their acid-alkaline effects. Included are not only single foods, such as fruits and vegetables, but also popular combination and even common fast foods. In each case, you’ll not only discover whether a food is acidifying or alkalizing, but also learn the degree to which that food affects the body. Informative insets guide you in choosing the food that’s right for you.

The first book of its kind—now updated and expanded—The Acid-Alkaline Food Guidewill quickly become the resource you turn to at home, in restaurants, and whenever you want to select a food that can help you reach your health and dietary goals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource! May 25 2009
The Acid/Alkaline Food Guide has been a tremendous help for learning how to avoid foods that cause acidity in the body. It came to me by recommendation from my naturopathic doctor. There is a short description of the Acid/Alkaline theory in the first sections of the book but the bulk of the book is an easy to follow chart with a scale outlining foods that cause high acidity all the way to high alkalinity. I have used this book from the day I bought it to adjust my diet and allow me to realize what foods I was eating that were causing me to be acidic. Great resource!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and practical Oct. 12 2009
I have read the ph miracle by Dr. Young and then I read this book. Dr. Young's book is too restrictive and unless you have a fortune to spend and lots of time, it is rather difficult to follow. I really liked the Acid Alkaline book as it is simple, practical and you can flip to the food product and see if it is alkaline or acidic. There are some discrepencies, for example tomatoes which are I think listed as alkaline in Dr. Young's book and I think mildly acid in in this book. So wonder which one is correct. But for the money and ease of use, I would recommend this book whole heartedly.

This book was very helpful and informative! I've studied cell biology and all of the information in the book makes sense. The easy to use food tables are great especially since they show how it affects the body and not just the pH of the food before digestion.
