When was the last time you heard someone mention body acidity while discussing weight loss strategies? I’m guessing probably never, but knowing your body’s pH level (the measure of how acidic or alkaline your system is) is pretty important if you are trying to lose weight or burn fat. In order to retain premium health and vigor, your body’s pH levels should remain approximately between 6.0 and 7.5. So, its in your best interest to learn how to control your body’s pH fast, and start losing weight this week!
Even the slightest change in pH levels could potentially lead to poor oxygen delivery to the body’s cells. Additionally, the pH of your blood plays a vital role in regulating insulin, and an imbalance in your body’s insulin levels can spark the onset of diabetes. Furthermore, pH levels are also directly related to healthy thyroid function. For example, the thyroid cannot function without properly maintained levels of iodine in the body. Since pH is critical to maintaining the body’s iodine levels, I think its safe to say that a healthy pH equals a healthy thyroid.
As well as excessive calorie content, most fast foods and junk foods consist of ingredients that your body perceives as toxins. Chemicals like high-fructose corn syrup, MSG, artificial colorings, flavorings, and preservatives wreck havoc on your body’s pH levels, and they are a key contributing factor to the world’s obesity epidemic. Other contributions to the toxic “cess-pool” that affect your body’s pH levels include common environmental pollutants, sunscreen, and skin care products.
The body is continuously flushing out these toxins via the sweat glands, lymphatic system, the colon, and the kidneys. It does this in order to help your pH levels remain normal. If more toxins gather than the body can cope with at a time, it will store the excess in fat cells that acts as a shield to protect your organs.
Consequently, one of the best ways to lose weight fast is to rebalance your body’s pH levels starting this week! This will force your body to get rid of the excess toxins that have built-up in your tissues, resulting in fat / weight loss.
Most local drugstores should have a kit that you can purchase that will test the pH of your saliva or urine. Just remember that any result below 6.0 would indicate high acidity., and results higher than 7.5 would imply unhealthy alkalinity (which is often much less common).
These are a few of the symptoms associated with excess acidity:
- Acid Indigestion / Heartburn
- Low Energy Levels
- Frequent Colds and Infection
- Leg Cramps
Fortunately, it is fairly easy to bring your body’s pH levels back within normal range. All you have to do is make just a few simple changes in your lifestyle, mainly just switching to a healthier diet will do. Your ideal diet should include around 80% alkaline and 20% acid-forming foods. Vegetables are the perfect example of alkalizing food. In addition, you can prevent excess build-up of toxins by drinking plenty of good-ole pure drinking water. You will almost certainly be astonished by the weight loss benefits you see just by lowering your body’s pH level a few points.
