Basics: What is the alkaline diet?
First, you might hear this diet called by several names. The Alkaline diet or alkaline ash diet or alkaline acid diet is concerned with alkalizing the body through eating a certain food to protect it from diseases and inflammation. The alkaline diet is based on consuming fruits, vegetables, and legumes and cutting out all dairy foods, meat, eggs, grains, fish, poultry, booze, and peanuts. The concept behind this limitation is that when consuming any of these restricted foods, acidic byproducts are produced, which make the body prone to diseases and infections.
