Seems like a celebrity is touting a new diet every week. Because they are celebrities, the media is usually all over it. So lets quickly look at what Kelly Ripa revealed this week:
“I’ve been working with this guy. His name is Dr. Darryl Gioffre, and he is a chiropractor, but also a nutritionist, and he put me on this cleanse. It’s an antacid, like high-alkaline cleanse, and it has changed my life,” Ripa said on Live With Kelly and Michael. “And I swear, I think it’s responsible for me not being in pain.”
Really we should all have a more alkaline diet. This usually means a lot less junk, or processed food and drinks. It means more fruits and vegetables. This type of diet focuses on eating a huge variety of alkaline foods and not eating foods that cause the body to produce acid. The alkaline way of eating encourages people to eat alkaline-rich foods such as fruits such as bananas, watermelon, and mango. Vegetables such as broccoli, kale, spinach, beets, sweet potatoes. It also includes new and ancient grains (amaranth, buckwheat, rye, quinoa), fresh herbs (basil, thyme, rosemary), and nuts, oils, and seeds.
