I was at a seminar yesterday (my nutritional heroine was presenting) and she talked a lot about the necessity of alkalinity in food.

I am starting today with a newfound motivation to eat clean and healthy and delicious!

Hey Chris, different bottled waters have different ph levels. Some are actually in the 6 range. There are two ways that I know of obtaining one: one is through a home filter unit, which is the best, but also the most expensive. The other is via bottled water that has ben re-structured and is alkaline. I know here in Japan there are some U.S. companies that sell alkaline water with ph levels between 7.5 and 8.5. We can also pick it up from out shopping centre on our way out the door. Not sure if you guys have them in your stores yet. It does make the world of difference, though. Hope you're able to find it.

If you can't find it, I'll hunt around some sources I know of. Just off to bed now, but will have time tomorrow to get the stuff to you and others.

Have a great Sunday everyone!!!! :D

I just have one question; when you mention "alkalized water", do you mean bottled? If so, that's what I drink lots of. But if not, how do you obtain it? emoticon

this is our answer to the 100 points a day challenge. It was getting a little boring and too much math LOL! This is an interesting challenge for everyone and I think it will make a huge difference. You will feel so much better, look better, and have more energy.

Good luck all! Let's go for it!!!

Plan to succeed. If you really want to win, you have to have a plan and stick to it. You also have to be able to adapt your plan and keep it dynamic. Gotta have a PLAN.

Ok, so you can do Kettlebells and you think you're tuff. Well, now we're gonna find out how tuff you really are ;) The question is: Can you alkalize?!?! Well?? Can ya??? Point being, losing weight in an acid environment is not only difficult, but harmful to your health and longevity. This Team Goal is to help you find simple and important ways to alkalize your system in order to support your body's natural ph levels, which pays huge dividends long term, some of which include: stronger bones, more vitality, stronger body, more resilient to sickness, lowered cholesterol, and the list goes on; but rather than blab on about them, it's time to challenge yourself and find out if it's right for you.

We get points for:

-having a cereal grass (up to 3 points per day)

-having at least one alkaline water per day (ph level above 7.5)

-have something green/or living with every meal

-no dairy from cows

-if you eat meat, only once per day and must be with a salad bigger than your face

-eat nothing refined or white (bread, rice, pasta, sugar, etc)

-ingesting NO artificial sweeteners, etc

-don't mix animal proteins with starches

-don't stress the small stuff

-eat an alkalizing fruit: lemons, limes, avocados, cucumbers(yes, they are a fruit), tomato (3 points per fruit per day)

-add blue/green algea, chlorella and/or spirulina to your daily diet

-have a non-flesh, non-processed sandwich

-having 10-15 organic, raw almonds (eat more if you like; I do:) If you soak them in water over night you get more out of them)

-10 minutes of deep abdominal breathing

Note: We didn't put a lot of stuff in here about having loads of soy alternatives for reasons already discussed on the Team Site; but for those who haven't seen it, too much soy is just as bad as too much of the other processed crap out there. We want to increase the amount of living foods for people. After all, we are what we eat! :)
