    Kick-Start a New Keto-Alkaline® (Keto-Green™) You!

    • 3 min read

    My Keto-Alkaline® (Keto-Green™) Diet, also referred to by me as my “K-A lifestyle” (Kick-Ass!)…really makes me feel fabulous…and I want that for you, too.

    Here I will also answer a couple of common questions regarding getting started on a Keto-Alkaline Diet. These are questions I routinely get in my hormone reset and detox programs. In future blogs I will try and continue answering additional questions, so do feel free to email my team at team@drannacabeca.com at any time and ask YOUR questions, too.

    So excited to help you get going…

    Why I Created My Keto-Alkaline Diet

    It is the best way I have found – in years of research and years of working with women and men on hormone reset and detox programs – to get healthy and become a highly efficient fat-burner. What’s not to like about that?

    Frequently Asked Questions When Starting Keto-Alkaline

    How do I test my pH to see if I am alkaline? You can use my keto-ph test strips!

    • Allow the midstream of urine to saturate the test strip and then set it on a tissue or counter or hold for 60 seconds. It can be held flat or upright, ie.the top color vertical.
    • pH is the second band down and the ketone test is the top test.
    • Your urine pH should be in the 7-8 range in the morning (It may take a while for you to get there! So don’t fret!)
    • Dehydration can impact your pH, as can poor sleep.
    • You want to create your baseline…and then track what happens as you eat differently and make other lifestyle changes.
    • Remember you are measuring your urine pH level, not your blood pH!
    • Use the chart to determine your pH (and ketone) measurement     

    Keto-Alkaline Diet   

    What should I be drinking to help me remain alkaline?

    • First of all, hydration if really important (for getting/staying alkaline and for overall health!)
    • Water is really the best thing for you to drink! However…
    • Stop drinking water at least 20 minutes before you eat, and wait at least 20 minutes after eating (if eating something watery like soup), or wait at least 2 hours after eating if eating a high protein meal. This helps with your digestion
    • Do not drink water during your meal as it dilutes the enzymes you need to help you digest your food.
    • Use filtered water. Please do  not use bottled plastic water (that may leach chemicals).
    • Mineral water can be used.
    • Track the amount of water you drink using your Keto pH app. Most people don’t realize how deficient they are!
    • If you need a little energy boost…instead of reaching for something with caffeine (acidic), try my Mighty Maca® Plus Energy Elixer. Just put a tablespoon of Braggs apple cider vinegar (unfiltered) into a glass of your Mighty Maca (1-2 scoops), 1 teaspoon organic lemon juice, 1 cup filtered water, mix and…get going!

    If you can’t seem to get alkaline no matter what you eat!

    • Don’t panic…it sometimes will take a while…you need to figure out what is going on with your body!
    • Some things that may interfere:
      • Dehydration
      • Stress (yes! so important to tame that cortisol!
      • Inflammation (a common trigger is alcohol…)
      • Food sensitivities (the reason we go on an elimination diet during my programs!)
      • Poor sleep
      • Certain medications
      • Blue light? Late night electronics
      • Toxic emotions, negative thoughts
      • Yeast overgrowth
      • Skin or cosmetic products, toxic cleaning agents (this is why I’ll be recommending a wonderful organic skin care line to you next week…stay tuned for a special gift you can get that includes a wonderful guide on toxicity in your home)

    Read through my ebook and many Keto-Alkaline related blogs for some hacks and tips on how to get and stay alkaline, and how to be successful on my Keto-Alkaline Diet. 

    And please share your journey with me! I’d love to know how my Keto-Alkaline Diet works for you!
