Here are our top 4 weight loss suggestions:
1. Establish and follow an ongoing diet that is 80% alkaline/20% acidic
Dr. Robert O. Young, author of The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, explains that, “The body retains fat as a protection against the overproduction of acids produced by the typical American diet…Your fat is actually saving your life.” As further proof of this, tests on fat which was liposuctioned by plastic surgeons revealed that fat is full of acid. Reducing your consumption of acid-forming foods like meat, processed foods, soda, sugar and artificial sweeteners and replacing with a plant-based diet of alkaline-forming fruits, vegetables and whole grains is a surefire way to reduce acidity and thus achieve natural weight loss and improved overall health.
2. Hydrate with Chanson alkaline ionized water
“An acidic body pulls water into the tissues to try to neutralize the acids there…Without enough water, your body becomes too acidic and goes into preservation–fat-storing mode,” according to Dr. Young. He goes on to say that, “Drinking alkaline water washes away acids and wastes, helping your whole body stay alkaline. By providing alkaline water to neutralize and remove acid from the tissues, you’ll stop the body from gleaning alkaline substances from other parts to do the job–like leeching calcium from your bones.” By continuously alkalizing the body with Chanson alkaline ionized water, weight loss may result since the toxins will be flushed out thereby rendering the fat unnecessary. Chanson Water is now Dr. Young’s preferred brand of ionizers.
3. Exercise–the alkaline way
“Pain when you exercise is a sure sign that you are oxygen-deficient and producing increased metabolic acids (lactic acid & sugar) rather than accessing your electron reserves and acidifying your body. You’re stressing rather than strengthening your body. So be sure to keep your exercise pain-free, fully electron-charged from alkaline foods and drinks and aerobic. If at any point you do feel pain or discomfort while exercising, stop immediately and hydrate…(with) good alkaline water to restore alkalinity and to increase your reserves of electrons,” Dr. Young says. Rather than pushing the body to exhaustion or inflicting pain on the muscles and joints, you should practice aerobic exercises like walking, jogging or rebounding (jumping on a mini trampoline) or static exercises like yoga, pilates, stretching and pain-free weight-training which are all alkaline-forming.
4. Don’t stress
While stress over achieving your weight loss goals and frustration during the process is natural, it’s important to try to keep stress and negativity to a minimum in order to reduce acidity. This is because Dr. Young has seen negative emotions have a more damaging effect on one’s alkalinity than even the worst of foods! When you start to feel negative emotions or think negative thoughts, try taking a few deep breaths and distracting yourself with something positive like pictures of a loved one or a happy memory.
