Natasha Corrett, a nutritionist from London, shared the basic principles of making a menu and told how to lose weight and rejuvenate.
“When people ask me about the main benefits of my“diet”, I say: the production of its own collagen in the skin will increase, inflammation in the skin will decrease or disappear, the skin will retain moisture better, its protective function will improve, wrinkles will become less noticeable, and new ones will not appear much longer. That is, you will not only lose weight, you will get younger."
At the heart of Dr. Corrett's nutritional system is the principle of separating foods into alkaline and acidic. In order not to go into too much medical details, let us immediately summarize: alkaline is good, acidic is bad.
This has been studied, proven and tested in many clinical studies, which have a common conclusion: the optimal pH balance of the human digestive tract is 7, 4, that is, alkaline. A value of 5, 5 is considered neutral, and anything less is an acidic environment.
“When the body becomes acidic, you feel anxiety, suffer from insomnia, your skin looks gray and dehydrated, becomes covered with wrinkles, acne and pimples often appear. In severe cases, eczema and psoriasis, peeling and unexplained allergic reactions (which are essentially inflammatory processes) occur. Of course, you should consult with a dermatologist, gastroenterologist and endocrinologist to rule out other causes of poor health and excess weight, but if all tests are normal, your diet is very limited, and the problem cannot be solved - listen to me and adjust the acid-base balance of your menu.
I am not suggesting to completely abandon acidic foods, by no means, I am in favor of a balanced diet. My system suggests separating acidic and alkaline foods in a 30 to 70 ratio. This balance must be maintained at every meal, and then your weight will naturally return to normal and your skin will look amazing!
The first and most important thing is to divide the products into these two categories. This is not as easy as it seems: for example, the majority of people perceive lemon as an acidic product, but in fact it is alkaline. To make things easier, I've put together a simple list that you can print or download to your phone so you can always check it out to make sure you're eating right.
Victoria Beckham and other stars who had a lavish wedding
Although it was in 1999, Vera Wong's dress for Victoria Beckham is still considered one of the most beautiful dresses in the world. Victoria herself believes that time has no power over the dress, and she still keeps it in her wardrobe. She hopes that one day her daughter Harper will want to wear it to her wedding.
(in decreasing order of alkalinity)
- Baking soda
- Red algae
- Mineral water
- A pineapple
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sea salt
- Sweet potato
- Most vegetable juices
- Mustard green
- Passion fruit
- Black pepper
- Soy sauce
- White cabbage
- Cod liver
(as the acidity decreases)
- Wheat flour
- Ice cream
- Cottage cheese
- Egg white
- Black tea
- Red fish
- White fish
- Pine nuts
- Sunflower oil
That is, if you want to eat, for example, beef, which is a VERY acidic product, compensate for this with a side dish of lentils and onions, and drink alkaline mineral water after the meal. And choose more alkaline foods for your next meal. It is impossible to completely refuse from "sour" foods!
You can follow this pattern all your life without the slightest harm. You will receive all the necessary microelements and vitamins, and you will notice the first changes in appearance in just a couple of weeks."
