Solve the main problem with traditional KETO diets

The problem with traditional ketogenic diets is that too many acidic foods can create a chronic low-grade acidosis depleting precious minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium while adversely affecting your bone health, increasing inflammation, and potentially leading to chronic disease.

Avoid these dietary mistakes by keeping your body more alkaline which eliminates these problems and keeps your body healthy…

Acid foods cause the body to scavenge minerals to keep your blood pH balanced. By focusing on alkaline-rich foods you can eliminate many problems ketogenic diets potentially create like bad breath and constipation, while easily staying in ketosis. This means limiting meat and dairy and focusing more on nuts, seeds, avocado and lots of leafy and cruciferous vegetables. 

Some examples of green leafy veggies include kale, beet greens, spinach, and chard. These foods will help you become and stay alkaline. There’s research that shows that a more alkaline diet benefits bone health, reduces muscle wasting, and mitigates other chronic diseases such as hypertension and strokes. Since inflammation is the marker of disease in the human body, anything you can do to limit that will be beneficial to your health and longevity.

KETO HACK: Eat alkaline foods to limit inflammation and prevent the depletion of precious minerals in your body.

A good way to get your protein on a ketogenic diet is to focus on plant-based sources to stay alkaline. Many people use plant-based protein powders in order to supplement their diet versus consuming traditional animal proteins.

So while ketogenic diets are traditionally fairly acidic, with smarter food selections you can still stay in ketosis and maximise your health and longevity.
