What's all this about pH?

Do you ever feel like you are just a little bit off?? Well, for the last week or so that is how I feel!
Even after doing a lot of trial and error with my supplements and post work out food I know my body well enough to know that something is off. Incidentally, yesterday my sister Carey and I were talking about the effects of the pH of your body. After testing my body's pH, low and behold, I discovered that my body is extremely acidic! Damn! I'm sure some of you can relate to my love of meat, especially a big fat bloody steak, but unfortunately this is one of the contributors to being acidic.

Focus for the week:
  • Instead of eating that extra serving of protein, go for the green stuff
  • Cut down on caffeine intake
  • Monday begin a cleanse
I'm no expert on the pH of your body, but I do understand that what makes your body more alkaline is the green, living stuff, so even if you fall off the veggie bandwagon occasionally get back on it. It will do your body good!

How did you test the ph of your body? I'm curious what my balance is.

I peed on ph strip and on the thing the strips came out of was color code. Put next to it and it gave me my ph. You can get the strips from Whole Foods.
