You may not know this but keeping your diet primarily alkaline rather than acidic can improve your health and add years to your life. The human body goes to great lengths to maintain a slightly alkaline pH of 7.35, and poor diet and stress can change the pH to an acidic one in which disease can thrive.
Eating specific foods that make your body more alkaline can protect against those conditions as well as shed pounds. Most fruits and vegetables, soybeans and tofu, nuts, seeds, and legumes are alkaline-promoting foods. Dairy, eggs, meat, processed food, alcohol, and caffeine cause your body to produce acid, which is bad for you.
