Balancing Your pH Before Embarking on a Diet
The term pH refers to the measure of hydrogen ion concentration in the body. The scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 0 being acidic and 14 as alkaline. Neutral pH is 7.

You are able to quickly and easily readjust your pH balance. A neutral or alkaline pH level makes it easier to lose weight.

Processed diet foods, alcohol, excessive meat, sugar and weight-loss products make the body more acidic. Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet will reduce acidity. Drinking six to eight glasses of water improves your pH. Having some lemon, lime or watermelon is a great way to make simple changes.

Stress and anxiety can increase your body’s acidity. Hypnotherapy may help address the issues that cause stress and anxiety. You can also be a bit more forgiving of yourself.

You may have to make some habit changes. Learn portion control. Instead of worrying about wasting food, portion out your meals and put leftovers in containers for later.

Listen in as Dr. Karen Phillip shares how you can fix your pH and have more weight loss success.
