The acid watcher diet was created by former New York Times writer and editor of a daily newspaper, Steven Salzberg, because he had a difficult time finding food that was high in acid while low in carbs. A high acid diet has a long list of beneficial effects from lowering cholesterol to speeding up weight loss to more energy.
It’s a little over 50 years since someone first came up with this diet, and if you’ve got your own tips or tricks of your own, I’d love to hear them. I have a personal blog about the subject, so if you want to get in on the discussion, that’s where you can find me.
The diet, or lack there of, doesn’t seem to be a huge factor in whether or not you succeed at your goal. It is, however, a factor in whether or not you have fun while doing it. If you eat too much carbs and sugar, you might get sick. If you eat too much acid, you might get fat. Either way, you end up being a little sick, a little fat, and a little sick in the end.
The only way to know for sure is to try it. I don’t have any experience with the diet, but it sounds like fun. I have been on a couple of diets like that, and it really didn’t seem to do anything for me. I just wanted to lose a few pounds and get myself back up and running.
You can actually do the diet while you’re on acid and not get sick. I think the best way to tell is to give it a try. If you do decide to do it, eat the food list, drink the water, and drink a bunch of coffee and tea. You’ll be surprised how much you’ll enjoy it.
