Why is an alkaline food diet wrong?

Every day I get asked how to get an alkaline food diet, and every day I have to tell people to stop looking. An acid alkaline diet is a great thing. When you get the right balance between acid-forming and alkaline-forming food and drink, you have one of the healthiest diets on the planet.

Of course, you still have to balance protein, carbs, and fats. You still have to ensure that you get sufficient vitamins and minerals. But those things become much easier within the framework of a balanced acid alkaline diet.

Trying to achieve an alkaline food diet is not balanced. Let’s hope you include all beverages in your diet plans. OK, we are used to using the word food to include food and drink. Hopefully you can agree that all food and drink, plus any dietary supplements, need to be accounted for. But that is implied by the word diet, so why not simply ask for an alkaline diet?

Strictly speaking, your total food intake should be alkaline, but it must be a balance of acid and alkaline foods and drinks. Around one quarter to one third acid-formers is about right. If you avoid acid forming foods entirely, you risk missing some essential nutrients.

100 Most Acid Foods

The food high in acid list shows the 100 most acidifying foods from the USDA nutrition database. Some of these are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. They should not be avoided, but should be balanced by a greater quantity of alkaline producing foods.

To find suitable alkalizing foods, you can consult my Most Alkaline Foods List. For better variety, I’ve listed all foods by food group, and you can read about these in my Basic Acid Alkaline Food Chart Introduction.

Remember that the table lists 100g portions of food. Many foods on this list are concentrated, and will normally be used in much smaller quantities – simply adjust the PRAL value to suit the amount used.

Beware of the high value for the top of the list. Baking powder can contain a range of organic and inorganic compounds that may distort the true PRAL value.
