The Holy Grail to Weight Loss?

Just to be clear, I AM NOT PROMOTING ANY PRODUCT, ok?

So, I’ve been picking the brain of a health expert, and she tells me that the key to weight loss lies in alkalizing our bodies.

At first, I thought yeah yeah, another quack-new-agey theory blahblah. But the more I read, the more it seemed to make sense.

Many people nowadays suffer from the over-acidification of their body, also known as acidosis. All food we ingest influences our body pH level. By consuming acid-forming or acidic food, like continental breakfast, hot-dogs, muffins or coke, our body is continuously fighting to neutralize the excessive acid and to retain pH balance.

Symptoms of a pH imbalance can be weight problems such as overweight, as well as other health conditions such as allergies, arthritis, acne and heart attacks.

Here’s an excerpt from a site about alkalizing
http://www.balance-ph-diet.com/index.html:

‘An alkaline diet thus helps to boost your energy levels, improve skin, reduce allergies and enhance mental clarity.

‘Above that, when pH balance is achieved, the body instinctively drops to its ideal, healthy weight. As soon as the acidic environment is eliminated, there will be no need for new fat cells to form, and the remaining fat in your body is no longer needed to store acid wastes, and therefore simply melts away. An alkaline way of life will restore good health; you will not only see but also feel the difference.’

When I clicked on the list of alkalizing foods

I noticed that soy is highly alkaline.

I wonder, could this be why asians are generally more slender than other races?

Could this be the holy grail to weight-loss?
