Acid Forming Foods VS Acidic pH.
Ok, so before we start listing foods we gotta get one thing out of the way. And that is, what do we mean when we say acidic, because it sort of has two meanings.
So the way in which we measure how acidic or alkaline something is, is through the pH scale. Anything from 1-6 is acidic and anything from 7-14 is considered alkaline. If you’ve ever made a volcano for science class then you know what we’re talking about.
#1 RED MEAT
This one includes processed meats as well. So those hot dogs you packed away all summer, might be catching up with you in more ways than one.
We might as well lump this in with the animal products like meat we just talked about because, unfortunately eggs fall under the acidic category once you eat them. That being said, eggs are highly nutritious and, if incorporated into a balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, will probably benefit you more than harm you.
Refined sugar in general is pretty bad for your health. If you’re trying to eat better than sugary drinks and foods should be the first to go. Sugary drinks in particular are damaging to your health because your body doesn’t realize how much sugar it’s ingesting, it sort of tricks it. You don’t feel full after drinking a glass or juice or a sugary latte.
This would be the last type of food I would think to be acidic?! Maybe milk isn’t the answer when it comes to heartburn? Not ice cream too! I’m afraid so. Cheese, milk, ice cream, all of these are high in phosphorus which means once you ingest them, it turns acidic.
