Its a very difficult subject,but i do sometimes have the feeling it migth affect my energy but i honestly dont know anymore.
Theres so many contradicting lists of acid/alkaline foods out there,so which one. to believe?i heard from someone that anything with a high calcium to phosphor ratio is alkaline,so that would indicate that dairy is actually alkaline which is usually placed in the acidic category on the lists.
But ive also read that the body thrives more in a sligth alkaline environment,while gut needs to be a little acidic.
I think ultimately the body decides whats alkaline(good) and acidic(bad) foodwise and. I think the liver detox capabillities are a huge factor in that. But what keeps it detoxing properly?enough protein,according to peat?
Then i also think metabolism,leaky gut,candida overgrowth etc.determine the acid/alkaline balance and which food falls into which category?
