Diet is one of the most significant determinants of your health. What you put into your body every day affects everything: your biochemistry, your mood, your brain, muscles, tendons, bones, nerves, kidneys, liver.
Unfortunately, most people are on autopilot when it comes to diet, following a disease-making Western Diet that is high in acidic foods and low in alkaline foods. The Western dietary pattern also called the Standard American Diet (SAD), is high in processed foods, fried foods, and red meat. And it’s low in whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and healthier fats and proteins such as nuts, seeds, and fish.
