Yam-Yam, what does the liquid chlorophyll do? Alkalize the body? Or is there more to it, and I would guess it would have to do with it being "green" LOL.

See Vanilla, this is why you won't give up, we all love you too much and you would miss the abuse I give you. You know that I'm right, just keep on keeping on girl.

I love coconut water too. You make me want to go and by some. Maybe not on a DD.

Marie: I bought it after reading a post by Beverly. If I can find her post I will put a link to it here or maybe she will pop in and explain it. I did some on line research and there seem to be many benefits.

My personal trainer was always pushing me to start taking alfalfa supplements because she said they are amazing for the nutrients they have and also help to regulate fluid in the body. I tried taking the alfalfa pills, but they are very scratchy and hard to swallow. I ground them up and tried mixing them with water, but they won't mix.

When I found out that chlorophyll is made from alfalfa, I got more interested. Then when I read Young's book he did mention that chlorophyll or any "green drink" will increase the alkalinity in our bodies, I decided to try it. It's very pleasant tasting. You mix one tablespoon of it in with a large glass of iced water.

You can do a google search about chlorophyll and find a bunch of helpful information.

Oh my gosh, you guys, my blood sugar right now is 70!
That's a little below normal.
AND I FEEL FINE!!!

I mean, I kinda can't stop thinking about a big plate of eggplant parmigiana and a hunk of chewy Italian bread, but that's not exactly different from any other day!

I'm really hungry, but it's totally reasonable considering I've been up for 12 hours and haven't had much besides a couple of eggs around 10am and a small burrito around 1pm.

Once again, my hands aren't shaking. This is amazing!

Yesterday it was 80.

This is all due to "alkalizing" with the baking soda in the water.
So simple, so CHEAP...

That IS amazing. My DD would be shaking by then. Hmmmm...I am running to my pantry to pull out the baking soda. Wonder if really old, cheap baking soda would work

I know, right?!!!
All I can say is, it's definitely working for me.
My blood sugars are usually 100-120 in the afternoon.

I would normally be shaking at 70, too.

So far, it hasn't affected my fasting blood glucose.
But we usually get pretty "acidic" overnight.

I had high hopes that this would help with weight loss...nothing yet...
but the blood sugar stuff was totally unexpected, so I mustn't complain!!!

By the way, I've been putting 1/2 tsp in a one-quart water bottle
(old Snapple bottle), and I drink that probably 4 times per day.
I'm sure your DD wouldn't need as much...but just to give you an idea...

If she doesn't like the taste, I had similar results a few days ago by using fresh lime juice in a couple glasses of herbal iced tea. My BG had been 120 in the morning, 130 after lunch, and it was 85 after I drank the tea! And it is was 85 a couple hours later!!!

Oh, Dawn, I hope this helps your daughter!

PS...lol...I didn't notice you said "really old" baking soda!

I don't think it loses its properties...you might want to get a fresh box next time you go to the store, though!

Hey P.J. I can't remember which day you started the baking soda experiment. Has it been a week yet?

Remember, when my sis's doc started her on the alkaline water he said she probably would not lose any weight the first week because there would be changes happening in her body first. He was right. She said she ate less because she felt a real appetite decrease. However, she lost nothing.

The second week she started losing something every day. That's when she started doing 2 to 3 proteins, 2 or 3 fruits (mostly citrus), lots of veggies and she cut down her breads to 2 small pieces of high fiber bread. She told me the specific kind, but I didn't recognize it so don't remember.

Anyway, keep the faith! Maybe some losses are on their way. You never know. Keep doing the good stuff. The reduction in blood sugar is a great beginning IMHO!!

No, it was some kind of a bread stick with a weird name. I should have written it down but when she sends me the info, I'll know. The other choice was melba toast, I remember her saying that but I've never had it so I don't know what that is. I don't even want to google it and find out because if it's good I'll want it and if it's not, why waste my time?

It does sound like the hcg protocol - ALTHOUGH I will tell you there have been several rip-offs of the protocol, not just the "newer" hcg regimes, a few more food choices, no hcg, slightly higher calories, like 800, and I did it in the early 80's as Diet Center. They even had a "steak day" for a correction day if you went over 2 pounds. Sound familiar!?!

@PJ - so, tell me again, so I know for sure - you are doing 1/4 or 1/2 tsp baking soda in how much water and how many times a day, and times? I am MOST interested. Is it also helping with appetite suppression?

I don't know if my DD would like the baking soda in water. She is 11 and extremely picky! I can barely get water in that girl I was thinking of trying it myself. My DH is very interested in the whole alkaline/acid thing because he believes it is what got rid of his asthma when he was young. He had terrible asthma when he was born in Okinawa (he & his family is Japanese) way back when there were no meds for it. He was hospitalized quite a few times and hated it. The doctor there told his mom to feed him "a whole bunch of veggies" in order to help him with it. He did and he got rid of the asthma. Now his breathing problems have resurfaced. So when Yam mentioned those green drinks and such on page #1, I perked up! It does work!!!!

I got my very old box of baking soda from the pantry and will try the water myself today. See how it goes. There is no date on that box and no telling how old it is. I must admit to having very very old stuff in that pantry....we are talking stuff from 2006 is in there and I just don't use baking soda anymore. So I will be the guinea pig today.

She must be doing more than just the water and specific foods. Living on 500 calories is not easy--trust me. I had done a round where I was hungry every single day---and that was WITH taking the hcg that you are supposed to take with the restrictive calorie phase. Ask her if she was taking a shot or drops with the foods.

Wow, how freaky is this? Mercola put out an article the other day (I just got it in my email) about adding lime juice to your water after exposing it to sunlight. The article is "install your own water filter at home" but then talks about "hidden cancer trigger you are probably drinking every day". Hmmmm........I wonder if lemon does the same thing as lime? DD would much prefer the lemon in her water than lime.

Hey guys...my sister is not and never was restricted to 500 calories per day nor is she doing HCG. She does not count calories. She has a friend who did HCG and my sis and I agreed we could never survive on 500 calories a day, day after day. She knows I restrict every other day, but that's different than doing it for a month.

The closest thing I can find to what she is doing is the PH balance diet and there are several books out there about it. I now have 3 that I bought on amazon and have learned a lot. Most of them advocate eating 70% alkaline foods and 30% acidic foods.

My sis was in the maintenance phase when we were vacationing together. She was allowed to eat/drink anything she wanted except bread and sugar. She used Truvia. She lost weight and hit a new low that week not restricting herself and not counting calories.

When she got home her doctor wanted her to stay on maintenance for a while so she still is on maintenance and without trying at all she has lost 3 more pounds this last week.

1/2 tsp in 1qt of water.
Probably 4x/day (but I weigh a lot, other people may need less).
I just drink it all day long; it's my "normal" water, not anything extra
(however, I seem to be less interested in iced tea, Crystal Light, etc).
Yes, it is helping with appetite suppression.

Green drinks, veggies, etc, are all really good...but the alkaline water is a great tool, and it works quickly!

Yes, I sip on it throughout the day.
At first I was concerned that it might interfere with digestion (stomach needs some acidity!) so I planned to drink it between meals...but I haven't had any trouble with digestion, so I'm not too worried.

If you have any issues with low stomach acidity, try drinking water & lemon around/after meal time, and baking soda (or other alkaline minerals*) between; I also take the 1-qt bottle to bed with me and drink some before I go to sleep, any time I wake up, and finish the bottle in the morning. It really reduces morning aches & grogginess.

Yes, lemon does the same thing.

If she doesn't like the baking soda water, you can get "pH drops" (I use the Body Rescue pH Protector Drops), or some of the following:

*Other minerals will make the water alkaline: calcium (I use coral calcium), magnesium (something powdered, like Natural Calm, might be good; but just use a pinch), potassium (Liquid K from Twinlab), boron (I started this last night, will let y'all know more if results are good...this morning was really good, though!). Unrefined sea salt is alkalizing, too. Sounds a little funny, but a little salt in lemon water can be tasty, and great for rehydrating!

Do you know that the one thing they suggest for adrenal fatigue is sea salt in water? I know of a few who are doing this? And they are also doing the hot water, lemon, sea salt first thing in the morning? Hmmmmm. Maybe the sea salt would be tastier. I put some baking soda in my quart of water this morning and it was icky. DD would not like it! I can tolerate many things, and I do, but not her LOL.

pirate--are you adding in just 1/2 tsp in your liter of water? I thought I read where it was to be 2 or 3 tsp in 1 liter. So I dumped 1 TBL in my liter of water. That is probably why I didn't like it. I should start out slow, huh? LOL. I sipped on it all morning and have just now had a shake for lunch! I was not even having tummy rumbles. Just thought I should eat something. I wonder if the water tamed my appetite. I will not add the baking soda to any more water for the day. But will have it once again tomorrow. I normally drink 3 liters of water a day.

I did the same thing, added 1tbsp to my first bottle because that's what YamYam said Dr Young said.

But after that, I tried just 1/2tsp and it's been working fine.
I have pH tape to test myself with.


And, yeah--sea salt rocks!!!
