The Alkaline Lifestyle Course

I'm on the Soft Start Transition, slowly getting myself into eating a more alkaline diet.  This part is not so far away from my usual diet except I've gotten used to not eating breakfast which I know is not good but I seem to get my first meal of the day when Baby Chick is having her nap at 11.30am & by then I'm so hungry I just reach for tea & cake!  

So now breakfast (or brunch is probably a better name for it) is muesli with extra nuts, dried fruit with plain yogurt & a banana on top.  Its not what I'd choose but I'm going with it for now, but keeping the portion small. 

Snacks are fruit/nuts & avocado on toast, again what I would usually have in my diet but without the toast.
Lunches are salads & wraps for 3 of the days & 4 days of your usual lunch, which for me is either a green powder drink very hastily slung together & chugged back before I go out with Baby Chick or cheese (acidic) or egg (acidic) of some description.   Usual Dinners all week.

There's a big emphasis on drinking 3 litres of water (lemon squeezed into it), I usually drink between 1.5 & 2 litres, 3 I would never leave the toilet!  I must admit I'm adapting some of it to suit my own lifestyle with a young baby, work, etc but so far its very doable.

I'm going Green!

I am going to trial a new way of eating, I am going on the Alkaline Diet, not specifically to lose weight, although that would be a bonus as I have about 7lbs I would like to ditch since having the beautiful Baby Chick.
The Alkaline Diet is from Energise For Life, for me its about becoming more healthy, eating well (as its easy to slide when the colder weather starts) & getting more energy!  There are so many potential health benefits to be gained though.  The course blurb says 12 weeks to your dream health, energy & body! 
I'm currently reading all the literature they have emailed which includes the Alkaline Diet Book, the Alkaline Lifestyle Guidebook, the Energise Success Journal & the Energise Alkaline Recipe Book, weekly shopping lists & menus plus exercise charts & pH testing if you want to optimise the experience.  The idea is to familiarise yourself with everything & then chose a date to "start", then you get a fully guided day by day transition for 12 weeks on to the Alkaline Diet.  One of the many reasons I choose this course is the transitional part, easing your way into a new way of eating rather than a rigid routine.  I have read about alkalising in the past but this course helps you put it all together with support.   I shall be starting on Sunday, really looking forward to it & feeling healthier!
