The Alkaline Foods List

This alkaline foods list is a composite of several charts compiled by various nutritionists.

You'll always find variations in any alkaline foods list. For example, some lists include fish as a recommended food while others place it on the acid-forming list. We've chosen to keep it on this list but you may not agree. As always, use your own judgment or, if in doubt, consult with a qualified health professional.

It's important that you consult with a qualified health professional before embarking on any new dietary or exercise regimen.

Gathering information online is fine for research purposes, but you need a real live professional to monitor your progress if you attempt to make drastic changes to your lifestyle. Unless you're a health professional yourself, you aren't equipped to objectively observe your body's responses to a new diet or exercise program. So whatever your chosen course of action, please be sure you enlist the support of a qualified professional.
