in my opinion, it's a good idea to cite a reference for lists like this. any one can just write a list and claim it is what it says. and sometimes a site will provide a list that suits their own needs insofar as selling a product. just my opinion.

I don't get it. What is it with the acid and alkaline food threads? Do these belong in the wiki instead?

this list is quite the mystery. my gastroenterologist gave me a list of foods that he thinks promotes heartburn/ stomach acid, but it has no relationship to this list. weird!

Honestly, after seeing the acid and alkaline threads followed quickly by the question about why to follow such a diet, I was expecting a spam attack along the lines of that shower-chlorine nonsense from about 10 days ago. Still kind of waiting...

someone started a thread asking about good low-alkaline foods / drinks. i attached a link to my response and explained that within the link there were obvious tactics to lure you to purchase the advertised products on the site. unfortunately, someone copied the list from the link and pasted it in the original thread as well as in two new threads. that's why i commented that a reference would be advisable when posting this kind of information so that anyone interested in actually using the info to make changes in their food choices would know where the info came from, and perhaps would find that it is just a selling scheme for their products. i had no idea this would happen.

i just did my ph balance test and my numbers were too acidic. should i avoid the foods under the acid portion?

interesting is that Olive oil is listed here as acidic, while in Stu Mittleman's slow burn book it is considered alkaline.

This underscores how tough an idea this is to nail. The thing is though that food is such a personal thing. Everyone reacts to food differently. What you see on these different lists is some common threads. While there is some confusing stuff- grains seem to be a big acid former. Something to think about if you are looking for more energy.
