According to Robert Young's Ph Miracle, fruit is not an alkanline food. I was just reading alot online about alkaline diets and came across Robert Young. Supposedly, the sugar in the fruit makes it acidic. Im going to buy this book and then posts exactly why he says fruit are an acid forming food. Maybe someone knows about it already though and can post about it until i read the book tommorrow. Thanks.

Well i went to the bookstore yesterday, but they didnt have it. Im going to whole foods today and hopefully they will have it! I talked to a few people who read his book and a few say its a bit extreme. If anything, I think citrus fruits would still be considered alkaline because of their extremely low sugar levels. I think Young is referring to fruits such as dates, bananas, figs, kumquats, mangos, permissions, pomegranate. All these fruits have alot of sugar and for what reason I dont know, he is saying this sugar makes it acid. Hopefully i can get the book and start reading it today. Personally, Ive stopped eating the sugary fruits and only eat grapefruits, lemons and limes ( add stevia and its great). Ive been doing this for about 2-3 weeks to raise my alkaline level and my face is really improving. Liver flushing got me around maybe 60% better, but with the citrus fruits, im up to around 90% clear. Maybe its nothing, but it seems to be working so far.

Lumas,
Yeah there's two ways of looking at foods. How they are outside of the body and how they are inside the body. Inside the body, some or most fruits become alkaline:

These are not steps, but stages some people progress through when going from conventional to holistic medicine. Stage 2 is how I became 99%+ Clear, eliminated my dysmennorhea, significantly reduced my sebum & pore size, etc & is my predominant method.

Stage 1 (Treatment):
* (Daily) Isocare Skin Control Cleanser, Dream Products Customized Natural Face Lotion & Coppertone Sport Spray Sunscreen (mixed)
* (Sporadically) spot treat w/ anti-inflammatory (neosporin, hydrocortisone, salicylic acid) or a skin lightener (post-inflammatory pigmentation) to treat stubborn cystic/nodular acne that appears due to unknowingly or knowingly ingesting a food/ingredient that breaks me out (I do my best to avoid these foods). If you cover treated area w/ a bandaid, it makes product more effective.

Stage 2 (Prevention): "cheapest" method ~ Since Aug. 2002
* Follow a Gluten-Free, Trans-Fat Free, Dairy-Free and No Added Sugar diet for my Insulin Resistance/Hyperandrogenism (Silent Chronic Inflammatory Syndrome)
* Avoid ALL types of nuts and the Genus Prunus (almonds, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries), Bananas, Pineapples, Cottonseed oil, Artificial Sweetners.

Stage 3 (Correction):
* 1/18/08 Ultimate Colon Cleanse (30 day program)

Research:
* Developing functional foods for those with acne & other special needs (assuming there's a defficiency).
* Developing good & "safe" formulas for various hormonal issues for women. Correction stage may resolve this for some.

Hm, so Ben, most fruits are actually acid forming then? Well, according to http://www.snyderhea...om/foodash2.htm . That is interesting. The only real alkaline fruits would be lemons, lines, avocados and it says tomatoes. I always thought tomatoes were acid forming though.

Hm this is so confussing! Every site says something different. I thought fruits were alkaline but according to http://www.snyderhea...om/foodash2.htm only lemon, limes and avocados are. Or, am i reading the chart wrong.

Ben, can you help?

Slightly off topic but what's with microwaved foods? You mean I can't microwave to get my steamed brocolli?
