When was the last time you experienced this scenario?
“At lunch you had a few hot dogs complete with the trimmings. Perhaps you even had chili added as a topping. As you gobbled up those aromatic hot dogs, they tasted ever so good to you.
However, when you returned to work, an hour later your stomach is grumbling and actually causing you to burp up your lunch, which by the way is not tasting nearly as good as it did when it went down the first time. So immediately you reach into your desk drawer and look for an antacid remedy.
That ought to take care of your problem. But after chewing down the first tablet, and then the second, you still have no relief – so you say to yourself, if a little bit is good, then a few more should be even better, right?
Then of course, you pop a couple more of the antacids hoping and praying for some much-needed relief. Eventually they do just that, but let’s take a look at what has happened to your natural digestive system along the way…”
So just how important is pH to weight loss? Actually, very important.
Our bodies are in a constant state of flux from one extreme to another with our pH, and yes, it truly is designed to be like that. For instance, in a normal, healthy human being, our skin is slightly on the acidic side – around 5.5 or so.
If you were to use a specialized pH strip to test your saliva, (inexpensive and available from any pharmacy) it could easily range from 6.5 to 7.4, depending upon what time of day you test as well as when you have eaten. Your pH always plays a part in the scheme of things if you want to lose weight and be healthy.
If your body is on the acidic side, your saliva test can easily be as low as 5.0. Optimally, it is best to be in the normal or neutral range of 7.0 or thereabouts.
If you want to lose weight, drop some pounds, lose some inches, and just feel better, along with looking better, let me know. We can get you on the pH water, and tell you what other options you have if you want to start dropping the weight, and looking and feeling good again.
