Alkaline Diet Starter Guide

Read This to Instantly Understand the Alkaline Diet

The Alkaline Diet is really simple and easy to understand. You just have to focus 80% of your eating on fresh, energising, alkalising vegetables, salads, oils, seeds, nuts etc. and minimise your consumption of acid-forming foods such as chips, chocolate, alcohol, tobacco, cola, bad fats, meats, dairy etc. It is that simple.

The 80/20 principle works really well with the alkaline diet -- if you master the core information then you will get 80% of the benefit with just 20% of the effort. How does that sound to you?

Quick Start: Here is what I advise you to do to start feeling an increase in energy and vitality within 48 hours:

Eat Your Greens: for the first few weeks try to up your intake of fresh green vegetables and leaves by simply having a side salad with every single lunch and dinner!
Drink Up: you absolutely HAVE to aim for 1.5 litres (women) or 2 litres (men) of clean, alkaline water each and every day. This alone will have a huge impact on your energy and wellness.
Exercise: exercising will increase the benefits you feel from your diet by at least 500%. Aim for 3-5 40min sessions of a mixture of aerobic and resistance training each week. Start by walking or rebounding if you must - just get moving!
Smart Supplementation: unless you have a specific health challenge I really recommend you focus on the four most important supplements - green drinkspH dropsalkaline minerals & omega oils such as Udo's Choice. Everything will fall into place with these supplements.

Core Supplements

Green Drinks


Highly alkalising, nutrient dense and unbelievably good for you, green drinks are a must have.


pH drops raise the pH of any water you consume. This is really very important because normal tap water is generally acidic.
Alkaline Salts


The four most alkaline mineral salts of calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium, these salts are highly alkalising and are vital to life itself.
Omega Oils


For optimal health, energy and wellness I strongly urge you to give some focus to the omega 3, 6, 9 and coconut oil.
