Here is a peek at Optimalbody diet plan which is rich in greens, antioxidants, minerals and natural probiotics aiming to lower the PH acidity in the body. Consuming processed foods, animal proteins, diet drinks and grains alwill contribute an acidic condition (less than 7.34 the optimal range),making it more less functional and a major cause for weigt gain and more sever illnesses.
During the first stage of this program we focus on the 3 essentials which include:
The nutritional guidelines are mostly Plant based food, low in Carbs and processed foods similar to a keto diet but in my opinion, it is more balanced and realistic to follow. GMO foods such as soy products, wheat, corn, and grains, make your body acidic therefore hindering its ability to fight viruses and pathogens. GMO foods are bombasted with chemicals that are highly acidic this is the reason why they are being limited in this program.
On the other hand by adding the greens and plant-based foods we change our Ph balance shifting it to what it meant to be -more alkaline. This program includes flax-seed oil in a special mixture that allows optimal cellular assimilation of Omega-3 fatty acids thus increasing the oxygen uptake of your cells. This in return makes your tissues and blood Ph more alkaline.
Our main focus is the consumption of GREENS -all the green vegetables in season, including sprouts and seaweeds. Raw vegetables in particular Kale, broccoli, sprouts, beet tops help our body become immediately more alkaline by increasing the cells' ability to binds with oxygen.
The presence of oxygen in the cells makes our tissues more alkaline and therefore increases our ability to fight pathogens.

Eat a fruit such as cranberries or pineapple -fruits are very easy to digest and are full of vitamins and micronutrients. If the first food you eat for example, is a sandwich with fats or protein this will stop immediately your detox. Remember this is not a weight loss diet only- it is a healing diet that aims to detox your body from toxins, fats, and waste products stacked in your gut. After the fast, you can consume the whole fruit or make a smoothie, or a fruit salad. The smoothie helps with digestion and elimination while keeping us feeling full for a longer time, especially when adding Moringa, Spirulina, or Hemp protein.
If you are watching your sugar intake make sure you chose apples, pears, or cranberries -these fruits glycemic index is lower than others (such as mango). You may eat drink the smoothie at 5 pm or before lunch. Wait at least 30 minutes before eating your big meal, lets assume that you start eating around 13:00 pm
Summary -Your LUNCH is made of: Large salad+ one cup of carbs+ cooked or baked veggies
Stop eating at list 5 days a week around 18:00 -19:00 Pm and start eating the next day after 14-16 hours of fasting. You can drink water, tea or coffee.
Remember 50% of all your meals should be raw/steamed or baked vegetables. Aim TO INCLUDE GREEN SPROUTS as they have plany of enzymes and probiotics.
