Alkalinity, pH Balance & Designing the Optimal Keto-Alkaline Diet

“Your blood becomes more acidic when you eat all that meat!” the interviewee said, and I almost pulled off the road in consternation.
I was driving recently, listening to a well-known nutrition expert talk about an alkaline diet’s many benefits. I found myself nodding in agreement until she delved into murky – OK, completely inaccurate – science about an overly acidic diet wrecking your blood pH.
Often well intended, confusion and outright misinformation surround pH-balanced diets. As a medical doctor who often prescribes keto-alkaline …

Acid or alkaline and why should I care?

Do you remember your high school chemistry class? If so, you likely learned a bit about pH, as well as the concept of acid and base (alkalinity).

You can measure any aqueous (containing water) solution and determine its pH (pH actually stands for “power of hydrogen” and is measuring the total hydrogen ion concentration in a solution).  
Human blood, …
