pH Dietary Recommendations

Eating a meal that is right for your individual body type should produce marked and lasting improvement in your energy, your mental capacities, your emotional well-being, and leave you feeling well-satisfied for several hours.

When the body is too acidic as a result of acid forming foods, high fat, mucus forming foods, and toxic food residues, disease and infections proliferate. This is especially true in cases of arthritis and rheumatic situations.

The human body should be slightly alkaline in order to build an alkaline reserve for acid-forming conditions such as stress, lack of exercise, or poor dietary habits.

pH Balance:


If you are already feeling good, eating healthy foods should maintain your energy level. But, if you feel worse in some way an hour or so after eating, such as:

  • You still feel hungry even though you are physically full
  • You develop a sweet craving
  • Your energy level drops
  • You feel hyper, nervous, angry or irritable
  • You feel depressed

Then it might be due to an improper combination of proteins, fats and carbohydrates at your last meal. You might be eating the perfect foods for your metabolism, but having too much of one type of food in place of another can easily produce the symptoms listed above.

It is important to learn your individual nutrition needs and what you require for YOU. You can be one of three general body types:

  • Protein user
  • Carb burner
  • Mixed

Protein types do better on low carbohydrate, high protein and high fats. A typical ratio might be 40 percent protein and 30 percent each of fats and carbohydrates, but the amounts could easily shift to 50 percent fats and as little as 10 percent carbohydrates depending on certain circumstances.

Carb types normally feel best when the majority of their food is carbohydrate. Typically this is about 60 percent carbs, 25 percent protein and 15 percent fat, but this type may need as little as 10 percent fat and as high as 80 percent carbs in exceptional times.

75% Alkaline Foods
25% Acidic Foods

Mixed types requirements are between the carb and protein types. Don’t stress out about the percentages; they are only rough guidelines.

Additionally, your activity and stress levels will affect and alter the quantity of food your body may require at the time, as well as the ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates you need to feel your best.

Lastly, the book points out that there is a circadian rhythm to account for. Your biochemistry moves through various phases throughout the day. These rhythms involve your hormonal output, your acid/alkaline shifts, your waking/sleeping times and many other time-based variables. While some people have a need for the same ratios of protein, fat and carbs at each meal, others may discover that they need very different ratios at the different meals in order to derive optimum energy, well being, and mental performance.

Start by eating the proportions of proteins, fats and carbs according to your taste and appetite that work best for you as an individual.

If you did not react well to your meal, change the ratios the next time you eat that same meal and again analyze your reactions. In this way you can fine-tune each meal to the ratios of proteins, fats and carbs that are just right for you.

Remember that you should feel terrific one hour after you eat. If you are still having food cravings or your energy level is even lower, these are giant clues that you are likely not eating appropriately for your metabolic type.

For example, suppose an hour after lunch you feel sleepy, hungry and want some caffeine or something sweet. These are clear indications that the ratios at lunch were far from what they should have been for your metabolism. And, you may be eating far too many fake foods and man-made chemicals or diet colas. So the next day, eat the same foods at the same time, minus the food chemicals, but dramatically change the ratios. As a result of this change, you will feel noticeably better...or worse. Either way you win. Either you'll know you are on the right track or you will have learned that you need to go in the opposite direction with your ratios. In other words, if you dramatically increase your protein and lower your carbs and your symptoms worsen, you'll know that what you need to do at that meal is actually lower your protein and increase your carbs.

Your body knows best -- far more than any diet expert ever will. It will always tell you in no uncertain terms exactly how well you did in giving it what it needs. Once you learn how to interpret your own "body language", enjoy discovering your own unique needs. You'll be amazed at the results. And remember to always avoid the ‘sweet poison’ and all diet chemicals.
