Is it Possible to Maintain Alkaline Balance on a Diet including Meat?

Here are the 13 reasons why our bodies, if given the right nutrition, will be so much more alkaline when including meat in the diet. 1.   On the Alkaline Paleo diet stress is greatly relieved.  Stress is the greatest acidifier and getting the right nutrition will calm the mind enormously.  It's been both mine and Ian's experience that stress is no longer nearly the problem it was prior to going on this Alkaline Paleo diet. By getting all of our amino acids so necessary from high quality … [Read more...]

Am I a Victim Because I Can’t Eat Wheat, Sugar and Lots of Carbs?

Can't we ever eat like a 'normal person' again and be healthy? "Why can't I just eat  like a normal person?"  is a frequent cry I hear from my fellow sufferers. Eating like a 'normal person' in this era of such a high carbohydrate and  processed diet cannot be sustained by most people without they also, sooner or later, succumbing to disease.   Perhaps  to want to eat 'normally' is like saying why can't I smoke and stay healthy? It has become quite obvious to me that when I mention that … [Read more...]

Do We Want to Truly Heal Just Yet?

My logical mind leaves the room Some people are just not ready to heal yet,  I know, in some moments, I'm still one of these people.  When tempted by foods I shouldn't eat I still occasionally become unconscious (the "me" that has logic and reasoning has left the room!) and I  tell myself I can eat those foods and when I do, I sabotage my healing. In the last 15 or so years I became aware to some extent that I was holding onto some pattern to remain sick,  but I just couldn't, for the life … [Read more...]

Are You a Live To Eat OR a Eat to Live Kind of Person?

Looking For A Different Passion Other Than Food? I have been a Live to Eat (and drink)  kind of person... ... and changing over to a Eat to Live person has been an interesting... and challenging experience. I realised I actually needed to find my passion to fill my need for meaning instead of using food for that purpose. No more thinking constantly of what treat to make or to buy or looking in the fridge constantly to see if something have magically appeared that takes my fancy as a … [Read more...]

Italian Odyssey- Part 2

Jeepers have I been having some adventures here in Italy and now the UK. I now really know how hard it is to eat travelling if you can't afford to eat at a restaurant and can't cook for yourself. I have just visited my nephew in London and his girlfriend, Lili.   They live what is probably a typical London life in the sense they don't cook.  They eat only organic foods but the organic foods they tend to mostly eat are organic snack foods. They aren't vegetarian but I guess for them meat is … [Read more...]

Being Alkaline Paleo in Italy – Part 1

Here we are in Italy.  After some setbacks due to my complete  ineptitude ( not getting a visa for India and getting tossed out)  we made it and as we inadvertently ended up in Bangkok for a few days, we ate Thai food, which even though it was savoury still had some sugar in it.  And... Ian and I lost our minds (put it down the stress of of all that went wrong) and had 2 beers each (gluten).  Ian and I have had to put up with the consequences of that mistake... I shan't go into that, not … [Read more...]

Why the Alkaline Paleo Diet?

Why a Diet At All? Why Not Just a Pill or a Super food to Fix My Particular Ailment?  When I took a pharmaceutical drug, a vitamin pill, natural remedy or a super food I became aware that these remedies might give me some relief from my particular ailment temporarily.... but that any remedy, be it natural or chemical,  couldn't  address the fundamental problem for why that ailment  occurred in the first place. I can't say that the latest super food will fix our bodies up just like that … [Read more...]

What About Metabolic Typing?

A friend said she had tried the low carb diet years ago and it didn't work for her.  She told me it made her feel unwell and that she needed carbs because that was her Metabolic Typing.  I wondered at the time whether this would be something that would come up for a lot of people who have learned about the Metabolic Typing diet, as they are not warned of the healing symptoms that do occur on the Alkaline Paleo diet. One thing I did notice about my friends eating habits was that she ate quite a … [Read more...]
