Alkaline Diet: What to Know Before Trying It


Trying out the latest diet is practically an American pastime…William Mundell, MD, an instructor of medicine at Mayo Clinic Rochester, also advises people to beware of any diets that: *Want you to buy only their product. You should be able to get the foods for any healthy diet on your own at the supermarket. *Focus on a narrow spectrum of foods, whether it's to eliminate all fat, all carbohydrates, or all proteins, or just eat grapefruit. *Claim that science has kept something a secret or that a single person has discovered something that nobody else knows about.
