Blood Sugar Diet

blood-sugar-diet

A Blood sugar diet is very important with regards to diabetes management. Your eating plan should concentrate on the quantity and type of carbs you put on your plate during the entire day.

Yet, at the same time you want to be able to eat foods you enjoy. You also want to be able to feel full and satisfied.

So, if you are diabetic or have issues with blood sugar levels such as high or low spiking of blood sugar after eating that makes you feel tired or terrible, then the following diet may be just what the doctor ordered.

The pros of blood sugar diet

  • When combined with everyday exercise, the diet has been demonstrated to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and cancer, while improving your heart health at the same time. It is simple to follow, and not connected with vitamin or nutritional deficiencies.
  • As fat presents more calories per gram in comparison with carbs or proteins, limiting how many calories you take can help weight loss, as well as improve cholesterol levels.
  • Helps to cope with diabetes.

The cons of blood sugar diet:

  • It may take time to review what quantities of definite foods you can have, for example fruit or carbs, which may be the reason for blood sugar spikes.
  • The very low-calorie intake makes the diet difficult to follow. In addition, the diet should just be carried out under medical supervision as it is a serious form of diet.

Go to your local health food store and buy some type of fiber supplement of powder to mix with water and drink at each meal. This will ensure you move your bowels regularly.

If the following diet does not seem to have enough fiber you can always check this list of high fiber foods and add them to the diet. or check this high fiber diet plan.

Non Dairy Diet

 

Non Dairy Diet

This page will give you information on a non dairy diet and a 7 day diet plan for a dairy free diet with shopping list.

non-dairy-diet

Why Non Dairy?

Eating Dairy products such as milk and cheese can be an issue for some people.

Not only when it comes to health but also on ethical grounds.

On the health side, numerous people who’ve quit dairy discovered that their digestive troubles, chronic congestion, ear infections or acne disappeared within one or two weeks. As a result you might think about going non-dairy for a month to see if doing so, makes you feel better physically.

check out what happens when you go dairy free.

A Non dairy diet is advised for those people that are allergic to dairy proteins (typically kids) or have an intolerance to lactose, the sugar found in milk, as well as foods like ice cream and yogurt.

In addition, a non dairy diet is used by vegans and some detox-diets prohibit all dairy products.

The pros of non dairy diet:

If you have lactose intolerance, and you start eliminating dairy foods from your diet, you’re going to feel a lot better and very fast.

Your heartburn or headaches will likely clear up and your skin will become clear.
Hormones in milk can increase the level of androgens in your body, and that activates the production of oils that block pores in your skin.

Furthermore, the sugar in dairy products triggers insulin-like growth , which is the reason for inflammation and the breaking down of collagen. Collagen is the stuff that keeps your skin elastic, smooth, supple and wrinkle free. That’s why ditching dairy may halt the signs of aging for a while longer.

The cons of non dairy diet

Weight loss is not guaranteed on a non dairy diet.  A number of studies have demonstrated that people who eat dairy weigh less than those who don’t, in fact.

On the other hand, if you’re cutting out ice cream or cheese, you may eat fewer calories; as a result you could lose weight.

So, it depends on what you eat in place of dairy products. Take into account that milk alternatives for example, almond and soy milk, are just a little lower in calories, and milk contains vital nutrients, like vitamin D and calcium..

The characteristics of non dairy diet

If the thought of rapidly removing all dairy products from your diet seems a bit discouraging, you can ease into it. Start by cutting out just milk the first week or two, then cheese, next ice cream and so on. Doing it slowly will make it mentally easier and you will get into a habit of not eating dairy slowly.

Be sure to have a consultation with your medical doctor before you start any diet.
Don’t forget to drink 2-2,5 liters of water per day as a minimum.

If you remove dairy from your diet, you should  eat more leafy greens and foods like broccoli which has a fair amount of calcium. Calcium is one of the nutrients you will lose when you eat a diet without dairy products.

The vegan diet plan mostly consists of vegetables, cereals and fruits, and is normally anywhere between 1500-2000 calories.

Anti Cancer Diet

 

anti-cancer-dietDr Joel Fuhrman’s motto is “Smart Nutrition, Superior Health”, and that’s the basis for his nutritional plan,Eat for Health”, also known as the anti cancer diet.

By extensively researching and cataloging the data from numerous studies, he has found a list of foods he believes are superior, and some that are criminal. His
eating plan also balances the body, allowing for weight gain.

H = N / C

H = N / C is Fuhrman’s equation, standing for Health = Nutrients / Calories. This is the formula he uses to calculate the nutrient density of a person’s diet. He theorizes that cancer protection comes from eating the foods that have more nutritional value than calories and avoiding the empty ones.

Anti Cancer Diet – The Method

The anti cancer diet requires the dieter to 1 raw salad, 2 cooked veggies, raw nuts and seeds, and 4 fruits. An acronym, G-BOMBS, was developed to teach proper eating protocol: greens, veggies, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries, seeds.

A pound of greens is approximately 100 calories, and the density of the nutrients is higher than any other food. Cruciferous vegetables have glucosinolates, which convert to isothiocyanates in the body. Isothiocyanates are a chemical with anti-cancer properties, known to remove carcinogens and stop tumors from connecting to a blood supply.

Beans are a nutrient-dense carbohydrate source, high in soluble fiber and resistant starch. This allows them to stabilize blood sugar and lower cholesterol. The fatty acids from beans help prevent colon cancer.

The allium family consists of onions, garlic, chives, and scallions, all known for a chemical called organosulfur. Like isothiocyanites, organosulfur inhibits cancer growths by removing carcinogens and halting cancer cell growth.

High in antioxidants such as quercetin, onions induce cell death in colon cancer.

Chinese studies have found that women who eat 1 mushroom each day have a 64% decreased risk of breast cancer. All the major mushroom types are known for having some
property or another; anti-inflammatory, immuno-stimulating, cancer-cell killing, another property to be added to the list is estrogen-inhibiting. Mushrooms are high in aromatase inhibitors, the same drugs sold to treat breast cancer.

However, always cook mushrooms as they contain agaritine, a carcinogen that breaks down in heat. Berries are more than worthy of the superfood title. High in antioxidants and flavonoids, berries protect the heart, reduce inflammation, protect the DNA, and even
reduces the risk of diabetes. They’ve even been credited with the improvement of motor function and memory.

Seeds are high in fats.. healthy fats. The human crusade against the fatty chains that heal our body has deprived us of phytosterols, lignans, and omega-3s. Lignans are known to have anti-cancer effects, omega-3s are known to protect the heart and maintain brain function while reducing inflammation, and phytosterols inhibit cancer growth.

The Reasoning Behind The Anti Cancer Diet

Using this information as the basis, he has created a new type of diet type, developing what he calles Nutritarians, people who eat for nutritional value.

His process starts with understanding and finding solutions for food addiction. By teaching nutrient density values, he explains how to change our thoughts to stop our ”slow suicide” by food.

Getting organized and being prepared allows a dieter to cook some meals ahead of time, leaving them more free time overall.

Teaching the practicality of frozen vegetables in modern life, he guides a dieter into better habits, re-training the person’s taste buds to enjoy flavor over salt and sugar. By channeling cravings for sweets into nutrient-dense foods, this diet teaches the dieter to accept their natural sweet tooth and reward it with fruits, such as berries, to continue healing and building their body.

By informing the dieter of the proper way to take in vitamins and minerals, this diet teaches a person long-lasting skills related to superior health.

Ten Foods to Eat; Ten Foods to Avoid

The Anti Cancer diet follows a similar list to most diets.

  • Eat lots of green, leafy vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, berries, beans, mushrooms, onions, nuts,seeds.. the whole foods everyone knows and loves.

However, his list to avoid includes

  • luncheon meats, smoked meat, barbecued meat, red meat, salted foods, soda,sausage, donuts, trans-fat containing foods such as stick margarine, sugary dairy products like ice cream and high-sugar yogurts, and white flours and sugars.
  • All these anti cancer diet foods should be avoided like the plague!

Some of this list is well-known, such as the refined items, however, luncheon meats and red meats have been linked to cancer, and should be avoided on the anti cancer diet ,as such.

All in all, the anti cancer diet is a plan to use natural cancer-fighting chemicals in foods found in our normal grocery stores to do amazing things.

  • For breakfasts, mix some blueberries in yogurt and drink a cup of green tea.
  • For dinner, make a bowl of curried beans over quinoa.
  • Turmeric suppresses tumor growth.

Make your meals your medication, and live a long and healthy life.

There you have some really good information about the anti cancer diet and if you follow this advice you just may be one of the lucky ones who lives cancer free.

Adrenal Reset Diet

This page will provide information on the adrenal reset diet. It includes a 3 day meal plan and recipes for good adrenal function.

Weight Gain And The Adrenal Glands

 

adrenal-reset-dietDr. Alan Christianson, a Naturopathic MD, has found a common link between all the theoretical causes of the current obesity epidemic.

While many people blame it on high fructose corn syrup or toxins, he believes there’s a better answer.“We gain weight not because we’re lazy or indulgent,” he says,“but because our cortisol rhythms are disrupted.”

The adrenal glands produce cortisol, known as the ‘stress hormone’, which governs our metabolic rate, maintains blood sugar levels, and is directly related to the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response.

Dr. Christianson developed the Adrenal Reset Diet as a way to combat adrenal fatigue, a theory stating that all the stresses of life overtax your adrenal glands, causing them to cycle incorrectly and putting the body on red alert, storing fat as if a famine is approaching. When your lymph system gets backed up it causes weight gain and other symptoms, including:

1. Fatigue
2. Insomnia
3. Fuzzy or troubled thinking

Dr. Christianson explains the problem in a manner anyone can relate to: a human takes in food, but the body stores the calories instead of burning them and providing energy. His solution hinges on the idea of creating an environment where our body feels safe enough to snap out of the famine-preparation state,no longer holding on to every excess calorie it can.

You are allowed to eat as much of the specified whole foods list (found in the book) as you wish, focusing on nutrient-dense foods at the right times. He also recommends 2,000 IU daily vitamin D and 250-600 mg daily magnesium.

For exercise, he recommends leisurely activity for 2.5 hours per week, such as a walk or bike ride. The adrenal reset diet must include some form of exercise.

Adrenal Reset Diet Method

1. Start your day with sunlight or a lamp that produces at least 10,000 lux every morning.

2. Eat your biggest meal at night so the body can convert it into usable fuel. It takes 8 hours for the body to produce glycogen, the main fuel your muscles use, from food.

3. Eat foods that support adrenal health. Magnesium is depleted during moments of high adrenal stress, so eating lots of spinach and beans keeps this life-sustaining mineral in supply. Vitamin C, from bell peppers and kale, help suppress the hormones known as adrenaline, cutting down on the body’s stress levels. Broccoli and chicken are high in panthothenic acid, which aids cortisol production.

4. Eat a high-protein breakfast with few carbohydrates, and slowly increase carbohydrate intake throughout the day. Eat at least 24 to 35 grams of protein with every meal, and avoid starchy vegetables such as potatoes. Only eat fruit, which is high sugar, two or three times a week.

5. Eat as much as you wish of foods like alfalfa sprouts, artichokes, asparagus, bamboo shoots, baby corn, cabbage, cauliflower, mushrooms, water chestnuts, jicama, lime or lemon juice, radishes, rutabaga, spinach, and water chestnuts.

The Three Disruptions and their Fixes

Dr Christianson is a naturopathic doctor, with a clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. As such, he recommends the following ‘fixes’ for the three major manifestations of cortisol disruption.

1. Stressed – High cortisol levels make you feel scattered mentally, edgy, and have difficulty falling asleep
Morning: 25-50mg of lemon balm, or drink a lemon balm tea
Evening: 33-66mg of a standardized 3.5% flavonoid content passionflower extract or drink a passionflower tea (*Note: If taking depression or insomnia medications, consult a health practitioner)
Commit to strength training exercises

2. Wired and Tired – Low morning, erratic day, and high night cortisol levels cause difficulty staying asleep
Morning: 100-300mg of 0.8 to 1.0 percent salidroside and 2-4 percent rosavin content Rhodiola extract
Evening: 500-1,000mg of powdered Ashwagandha root in capsule form. Can also be repeated in the morning. (*Note: Consult a health practitioner if taking a thyroid replacement)
Commit to alternating high/low intensity cardio workouts

3. Crashed – Low over-all cortisol levels cause constant exhaustion. You want for salty or sugary snacks.
Morning: 30-100mg American ginseng
Evening: Cup of chamomile tea
Commit to slow-paced yoga or a morning and evening leisurely walk

Sugar Free Diet Plan

sugar-free-diet-planThis page will provide a sugar free diet plan sample and help you understand the role of sugar in diet and how it affects health.

While a sugar free diet is not recommended necessarily for those who just want to lose weight, it is a good idea for those suffering with certain illnesses. A no sugar diet might be followed by someone that is diabetic.

What is Sugar?

Sugar is a very good source of carbohydrate and an energy giving food. It is made up of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and derived from various food sources. The following are the sugar derivatives:

Types Of Sugars

1. Simple sugars are called monosaccharides which includes fructose (fruit sugar), glucose (dextrose or grape sugar) and galactose (milk sugar).These sugars occurs naturally in fruits and plant juices. Fructose is considered the sweetest of all sugars.

2. Disaccharides include sucrose (table sugar), lactose (milk sugar derived from galactose) and maltose (malt sugar).

3. Oligosaccharides are longer chains link of fructo-oligosaccharides (vegetable sugars) and galacto-oligosaccharides (from galactose and lactose).

Health Effects of Too Much Sugar

Due to the fact that the composition of sugar is simple and can be easily broken down, it can contribute to high calories. And too much sugar, when not controlled can lead to certain diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, heart diseases, tooth decay, hyperactivity and also increase the risk of developing metabolic diseases.

Research has revealed that sugar raised blood glucose levels more quickly than starch because of its simple structure.

Foods High In Sugar

Some fruits and vegetables have large amounts of sugars in them. For example, figs, grapes, apples and bananas, red beets, sweet corn, sugar cane and sugar beets.

White rice, white flour, white pasta, white bread, ready meals and processed foods also contain high amounts of sugar. Proper portions, food alternatives and modifications, method of cooking are things need to be considered when introducing a sugar free diet plan.

The Sugar-Free Diet Principle

The purpose of a sugar free diet plan is to include carbohydrate-containing foods that are less likely to cause large increases in blood sugar levels.This is especially important if you suffer with diabetes.

The sugar-free diet and sugar free diet plan are a means to lose weight and prevent chronic diseases related to obesity such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. This can be
achieved through eating foods that are low in glycemic index  (1-10 GI values) such as green vegetables, kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils and bran breakfast cereals.

If you are diabetic you are likely already acquainted with the glycemic index. But for those who are not you can read about glycemic index here.

A treatment goal for people with diabetes is to achieve average blood glucose levels as close to non-diabetic levels as possible. This tight control helps prevent and slow the development of complications associated with the disease.

Sugar-Free Diet PROS and CONS

A sugar-free diet can be beneficial among high-risk individuals with clinical conditions but not recommended for a long-term intervention.

It may help people with diabetes to control their blood glucose levels and manage weight for obese and hypertensive individuals.

Careful planning of meals and diet plan must be made under supervision of a dietician to control levels of sugar in the diet.

Not For Just Weight Loss

For healthy individuals to maintain your current weight, you need to burn as many calories as you consume. The sugar free diet plan is not advisable for individuals who wanted just to lose weight. Weight loss is best done with a combination of reducing calories in your diet and increasing your physical activity and exercise. Therefore, sugar-free diet or sugar free diet plan should not be tolerated and not to be taken for a long time unless recommended by a dietician. The sugar free diet plan generally will be more focused on protein-rich foods, bland, plain food. Only sugar free products or sweet alternatives which are chemically processed can be introduced in the diet.

Below is a sample of a 3 day sugar free diet plan sample based on 1200 calorie requirement:

Gluten Free Diet Plan

Gluten Free Diet Plan

 

gluten-free-diet-planThis page will give you information on a gluten free diet plan.

What Is Gluten?

Gluten is a type of protein and is made up of two molecules, called glutenin and gliadin. When combined, it is what makes bread stretchy and chewy.

It can be found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye.

Who Should Not Eat Gluten?

Some people need to avoid gluten due to allergic reactions and sensitivity. Others may have a medical condition known as the Celiac disease wherein the intestines have become damaged and inflamed by gluten compounds in many foods. These type of people should eat a gluten-free diet and follow a gluten free diet plan in order to control the disease and prevent health complications.

Switching to a gluten-free diet is a big change.It can take some getting used to eating gluten-free, especially since there are so many carbohydrate rich food groups that contain gluten. And many people have carb addictions. The good thing for those who suffer with gluten sensitivity is that there has been big studies on gluten and a lot of research conducted which has resulted in gluten-free products now being available.For example breads and pasta made without gluten.

A gluten free diet plan should be given only under the supervision of a dietician so that daily nutritional requirement needs of an individual can still be met. For people with celiac disease and gluten sensitive, exposure to gluten can trigger immune reactions. Therefore, careful planning of the meals and food substitutions must be planned before being carried out.

What Are Some Gluten Free Foods?

Many delicious and healthy foods are naturally gluten-free such as the beans, seeds and nuts in their natural form, fresh eggs, fresh meat, fish and poultry– as long as it is not breaded, batter coated or marinated — most dairy products and fruits and vegetables.

It is just as important that these foods are not to be mixed or processed with grains, additives or any preservatives. Grains and starches can still be part of the diet as long as they are made free from gluten such as flours of rice, corn, soy and potato.

Foods To Avoid – Foods That Contain Gluten

On the other hand, when eating a gluten free diet plan, always avoid barley including malt, malt vinegar, and malt flavoring that are usually made from barley. Sources of rye, triticale –a cross between wheat and rye — and all sources of wheat. Be careful and consider the many types of wheat flour available in the supermarket shelves such as bromated, enriched, plain and self-rising, and phosphated.

Some wheat sources to avoid are durum flour, farina, graham flour, oats, and semolina to name a few. Knowing which foods to avoid is important when eating a gluten free diet plan.

How To Eat Out In Restaurants Gluten Free

Foods must be labelled gluten-free and check the actual ingredient list. If one’s not sure if it is gluten-free do not buy it. Or, you can directly ask the manufacturer what it contains. When eating out in restaurants, ask the restaurant staff member first if they have choices that are gluten-free. Some restaurants may offer a gluten free menu. There are some restaurants that certainly can adhere to guest requests on their meals most especially in the preparation.

For example, you might want to know if gluten-free bread and regular bread share the same toaster etc. because even cross contamination can trigger immune reactions.

Another important thing to consider is that processed gluten-free products are at times higher in sugar, salt, glycemic index, and transfats.

For many who follow a gluten free diet plan, it is better to cook home-made meals for this kind of specialized diet. Along with with recommendations and advise from a dietician so that you know you wont be exposed to gluten containing foods.

Below is a sample of a 1200 calorie gluten-free diet plan.

If you’re careful about what you put on your plate you can ward off eye problems in the future. Omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamins  C and vitamin E, plus lutein are all nutrients that can help your eye health.

There is a really good book Written by Dr. Laurie Capogna and Dr. Barbara Pelletier, two optometrists that can help you save your eyes by giving you the info you need to follow an eyefoods diet. Eyefoods is a tool to encourage anyone interested in maintaining good eye health to uncover the power of specific foods to stop or prevent eye disease.

I learned about this book last time I visited my eye doctor after I asked her about a diet for good eyesight.

You can get the book at the bottom of the page. For those of you who do not have the money to buy a book right now you can follow a simple diet I have put together for you to help your eyes.

Or, you could tape it to your fridge and refer to it every day, making sure you are frequently eating foods from this list.

It is also important not to eat certain foods that can damage the eyes such as Canola oil (commonly used when frying foods)

So, I also provide you with a list of foods to avoid to maintain healthy eyes.

————–
About Macular Degeneration and Cataracts – Age Related Eye Diseases

These two diseases of the eye are generally age related problems that affect older people.
The main issue causing these eye troubles is free radical damage. Inflammation or oxidation of the eyes are the usual reasons that eye damage such as this occurs.

The amazing thing is that they are quite possibly preventable by eating a diet rich in anitoxidant foods and a diet for good eyesight in general.

There has been research showing that foods that contain lutein and zeaxanthin can minimize the risk of eye diseases.

Such foods as leafy green vegetables, bilberry, black currants and eggs can help the eyes.

  • Highly-processed, store bought foods -red meat, fatty dairy products and fried foods
  • Packaged anything, like cakes,potatoe chips cookies etc

as close as humanly possible. Hell, if you eat a few cookies once and a while, don’t beat yourself up…just go back on the diet.

Everything you do towards maintaining or keeping healthy eyes is beneficial.

Gestational Diabetes Diet Plan

gestational diabetes diet plan

 

If you are pregnant and have been diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy then following a gestational diabetes diet plan may be just what the doctor ordered.

Gestational diabetes (pregnancy associated diabetes mellitus) is the onset of diabetes or the appearance of abnormal glucose tolerance for the first time during a woman’s pregnancy.

If you are a woman that has been diagnosed with this condition, you will be happy to know that it usually disappears after delivery.

However,  there are some women that will remain diabetic after the birth of their baby.

This page is not about explaining this process that sometimes takes place during pregnancy or why gestational diabetes may occur in some women but about how to control blood sugar by following the right gestational diabetes diet  menu.

If you have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes you will already be aware and understand by talking to your doctor what it is and what it can cause.

The main problem arising from having gestational diabetes is that your blood glucose levels can rise which get passed to the baby.

This can cause the baby to grow too big and make delivery more difficult. Not a nice thought! It can also lead to low blood glucose in the baby.

When gestational diabetes is well controlled, these risks are greatly reduced. A gestational diabetes diet plan is one way to do that.

 

Treatment

Since the use of hypoglycemic drugs taken by mouth is not generally considered a healthy option, eating a special diet and monitoring  glucose levels can help.

You must, of course, take any special diet like ours to your doctor because there may be strict guidelines the doctor will have you follow as far as this diet goes.
However, for those women interested in information about this type of special diet here are some rules to follow and a gestational diabetes diet plan at the bottom.

Rules for combating gestational diabetes

•    Eat a good breakfast: One with Low GI-levels (GI refers to the glycemic index read here.)
•    Eat foods  high in fiber such as vegetables and fruits
•    Cut down on food with lots of simple sugars and saturated fats e.g. grill food instead of frying.
•    Regularly exercise, avoid staying at a single spot idle for a long time
•    If all these do not work, a regular insulin injection might be the only way out. (see your physician.
•    Understand that it is a normal phenomenon and you will overcome it

Healthy carbohydrate foods include

•    Bread and breakfast cereals
•    Pasta, rice and noodles
•    Potato, sweet potato, corn
•    Legumes, such as baked beans, red kidney, beans and lentils
•    Fruit (fresh, dried, tinned, juice)
•    Milk, yoghurt, custard

It is important to eat these healthy carbohydrate foods as they are a good source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and energy.

They should be eaten regularly throughout the day but need to be counted so that you do not eat too much carbohydrate at once.

Carbohydrate foods to avoid

Eating a Gestational Diabetes Diet  means avoiding a few things such as carbs with a lot of sugar.

High sugar carbohydrate foods include

•    Regular soft drinks
•    Lollypops, regular jelly

These high sugar carbohydrate foods should not be eaten for the rest of your pregnancy.
They will raise your blood glucose levels very high, very quickly (they are foods with a high glycemic index (GI). Potato releases glucose slowly to the blood so it has a low GI)

•    Table sugar
•    Jam, honey

Research shows that a small amount of these carbohydrate foods, as part of a healthy eating plan, should not raise your blood glucose levels too much.
Use only a half to one teaspoon per main meal.

When using these small amounts, these carbohydrate foods do not need to be counted.
It is best to avoid larger amounts, but if you do eat larger amounts of these foods they must be counted as part of your carbohydrate serves for the day.

High fat carbohydrate foods include

•    Sweet cakes and biscuits
•    Chocolate
•    Takeaway foods e.g. Pizza, burgers, chips, etc.
These high fat carbohydrate foods can be eaten sometimes, in small amounts only. You will need to count these foods in your carbohydrate serves for the day.

Acid Reflux Diet Menu

fruits and vegetablesThe best acid reflux diet menu includes foods that are low in acid. If you suffer with acid reflux disease (that burning, stinging sharp pain you get when acid from your stomach backs up into your throat or esophagus) then try our acid reflux diet plan below.

Before starting with the acid reflux diet it’s a good idea to know which foods are more acidic and which foods are more alkaline.

This list of acid and alkaline foods will show you which foods are more acidic and which ones are more alkaline.

You can make up your own daily diet plans for acid reflux by avoiding foods that have a PH below 4 or 5 (in the list above) and eating the foods that are higher in PH.

It’s really simple to create your own acid reflux diet once you have the acid reflux diet foods list above. (you might want to print it out to make things easier).

This page shows you a list of acid reflux foods to avoid.

But for now here is a sample acid reflux disease diet for you to try. It takes into consideration the acid/alkaline food PH scale so you will only be eating mainly lower acid foods and sticking to foods that are mainly more alkaline.

Remember eating totally just alkaline foods is not normally necessary because your body needs a balance of acid and alkaline foods.But if you suffer with acid reflux you want to at the very least eliminate the worst culprits like caffeine, alcohol, chocolate and foods that have the most acid.You will want to stay an acid reflux diet most of the time if you have major stomach issues. That would probably mean eliminating all the very worst acidic foods most of the time.

 

Everybody is different, some people can eat tomatoes without problems and others find them acidic to their tummy.

You have to learn through trial and error which foods are your own culprits. Keep a food journal for a week if you like before you start the diet and you will find out which foods seem to be giving you trouble. Then make sure you stay clear of those foods.

Acid Reflux Diet Menu

Breakfast

  • 1 cup of oatmeal with sliced banana and raisins
  • 1 cup cantaloupe

Lunch

  • 1 cup cottage cheese (this sometimes appear on the acid ph list and sometimes the alkaline)if you can handle it you can have it.
  • Large salad lettuce, broccoli, bell peppers, sweet tomatoes and cucumbers (sprinkle with sesame seeds or sunflower seeds if you wish)
  • apple cider vinegar mixed with olive oil for the dressing
  • bowl of strawberries with probiotic yogurt on top
  • glass of water with fresh squeezed lemon

Dinner

  • Steamed plate of potatoes, squash, corn or peas, broccoli, cauliflower-mash up the vegetables and sprinkle with sea salt and some butter or margarine
  • mineral water

Snack

  • 1 piece sprouted grain bread with pat of butter/margarine
  • watermelon, banana or grapes

The above acid reflux diet menu may seem very restrictive because you eat mostly fruits or vegetables and bland foods.

However, if you have acid reflux disease that makes you uncomfortable then following an acid reflux diet plan such as this will decrease stomach issues.

You can check out amazon.com and get a book with some recipes for acid reflux diet to make it more interesting.

Make up your own acid reflux diet menu with the acid reflux diet foods to avoid and the list of acid and alkaline foods as shown up top.

Your acid reflux diet menu will only be as restrictive as what your own personal stomach can tolerate and which foods seem to give you most problems.

Diet To Reduce PMS And Ease PMS Symptoms

Foods To Avoid

diet to reduce pmsDo you need a diet to reduce PMS and all the symptoms that go along with premenstrual syndrome? This page will show you what you can do to take care of PMS by following the proper dietary guidelines and PMS dietary changes.

Women have been suffering with premenstrual syndrome or PMS for years and doctors often treat the symptoms of PMS with painkillers, tranquilizers or antidepressants.

While some medication that is available over the counter works to treat PMS cramps, simple changes in the diet can be just as effective as medication to get rid of PMS symptoms.

Here we will try to give you some helpful PMS dietary advice along with a one week diet plan for you to try next time your period rolls around and before you feel that premenstrual change coming on!

PMS Dietary Advice

When changing your diet to help get rid of PMS you need to know what to eat. Our PMS diet advice shows you the good and bad foods for PMS.

First let’s look at which foods aggravate PMS and which foods to avoid eating to help PMS symptoms like cramps, bloating, back pain, and moodiness.

Then let’s check out which foods can help PMS and what foods to eat when you have PMS.

PMS Foods To Avoid

First of all it is important to know which foods can trigger PMS symptoms.

A number of foods will make symptoms of PMS worse. Avoid the following:

Gum – chewing gum will cause you to swallow air and excess air in your stomach will aggravate bloating

Pop or Soda – soda will make your tummy stick out due to all the bubbles that are in carbonated drinks like soda and pop. Best to drink water if thirsty.
Salt – most of us know that salt will make you bloat but during your period just a little
bit of extra salt can make breasts tender and your stomach bulge. Try using different herbs and spices  and use low sodium ingredients of things like soy sauce or canned soups instead of full salt versions.

Caffeine – caffeine can make breasts tender and make you feel more anxious, nervous and moody. Not to mention more irritable. Caffeine can also take away the vitamin B in your body which keep hormone levels balanced. Recent studies show that the more you drink of it the worse PMS symptoms can become.

If you normally drink a lot of coffee for example, make sure you cut back gradually to give your system time to withdraw, since cutting back to fast could lead to withdrawal symptoms.

Refined sugar – white refined sugar disturbes absorption of magnesium which can cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate and make you feel tired. It also robs you of vitamin B which we mentioned above as being a bad thing since B vitamins help with moods and hormone levels.

Alcohol – limit drinking alcohol to one or less drinks per day if you are a drinker. Alcohol makes you feel depressed and irritable.

Eggs – the fat contained in eggs can get in the way of your bodies ability to absorb magnesium, which you need to feel calm.

Now that you know what foods to avoid to alleviate symptoms of PMS, let’s take a look at which foods to eat to help PMS.
