Dr. Robert Young, the author of the book “The pH Miracle for Weight Loss” discusses that the epidemic of obesity in the world is directly related to acidity in the body. Did you know that your body creates fat cells to trap and the neutralize acids?
There are three things that cause your body to become acidic.
1. The food you eat and the beverages you drink: The standard modern diet of meats, dairy, grains, and beverages such as coffee, tea, soda pop and alcohol are extremely acidic. Tap water and bottled water are also very acidic. Tap water is loaded with chemicals and bottled water is even worse because the water that goes into the bottle is not regulated plus the plastic leaches into the water.
2. Environmental Pollution: You’re bombarded with negative energy on a constant basis from household appliances such as microwaves, clock radios, cell phones, blenders and much more. These appliances put out EMF – electromagnetic radiation that stresses your immune system. Also, pollution in the air causes stress on your body therefore creating acidity.
3. Stress: When you have stress in your life and you worry a lot your body produces acid.
Some acids are voided through urination, defecation, and perspiration but many acids will still remain in your body. Since excess acids in the body break down healthy tissue as a natural defense mechanism, your body protects itself by creating a buffer of fat. This results in weight gain. That’s why traditional weight loss methods and dieting are doomed to fail. Until you release and/or reduce the acid in your body you’ll most likely never take the weight off and KEEP the weight off permanently.
Reducing the calories you eat will not decrease the acidity in your body. Reducing fats in your diet will not reduce the acidity that’s in your body. Reducing the size of your meals only minimally decreases the acid intake. Exercise allows your body to release some acids through perspiration but a number of acids will still remain.
The best solution is to drink ionized alkaline water which will release the fat and create weight loss. Alkaline water can decrease your body’s acidity and stop the storage of fat. Ionized alkaline water helps flush out acid and toxins. Once fat cells are no longer needed your body will eliminate them. Then the fat will melt away easily.
A detoxified, non-acidic body has much more energy and vitality. Dr. Young says “Your body can-and will-let go of the excess fat. If your food and drink are alkaline (meaning, in basic chemistry, the opposite of acid), all that acid-binding fat will just melt right off. There will be no need for the body to hold on to it anymore.”
You don’t need to diet to lose weight in order to become healthy. It’s the other way around. A healthy body causes weight loss. When your body becomes healthy (non-acidic) it will return to its natural, ideal weight!
