The grapefruit diet. The ice-cream cleanse. How many diets have you tried and failed? The difference with Living Lean is it isn’t a fad. It’s a scientifically backed program that puts into practice the evidence researchers have been talking about for years. You’ll soon be able to see the physical proof for yourself. Until then, read some of the reasons thousands of people have achieved their weight loss goals and transformed their health with Living Lean.
The Western diet has been getting more acidic for centuries. Thanks in part to the influx of nutrient-deficient processed products on our supermarket shelves. In recent years, there have also been numerous trends that have promoted high-protein diets. These have been proven to increase the acid load and acidify the urine ph¹ – the measure of acidity or alkalinity in our bodies.
When researchers calculated the potential acid loads on the kidneys of certain food groups, they found that fruits and vegetables were alkaline-forming, whereas cheese, meat, fish and grain products were acid-forming.
Over time, eating a diet high in acid-forming foods can progress to a chronic low-grade level of metabolic acidosis which may cause a number of health conditions including osteoporosis, kidney disease and muscle wasting, as well as an increased risk of chronic disease such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.¹ ²
pH stands for ‘potential of hydrogen’. It’s a term that measures acidity or alkalinity of water-soluble substances. The human body maintains correct pH of the blood (between 7.365 and 7.465) at all times, via homeostasis or balance.
Acidic foods and drinks, alcohol, tobacco, the environment and low activity levels can disrupt this balance and negatively affect your blood pH putting excess stress on the internal workings of your body’s cells and systems.
While trying to rebalance your pH levels and get rid of the excess acidity, your system will draw nutrients from other parts of your body, such as your bones and muscles, rendering them weaker.
By measuring the pH levels of your urine every day, the Living Lean rapid detox and weight loss program can help to ensure your body is in a healthy fat-burning state (alkaline) rather than an unhealthy fat-storing state (acid).
A crucial part of the Living Lean plan is our alkalising Water Wand. This stainless-steel wand contains a unique blend of minerals that help to alkalise the four litres of water you drink every day on the plan.
Several studies have supported the antioxidant properties of alkaline water. Reports suggest that drinking alkalising water can have health benefits for gynaecological conditions, chronic eczema, high cholesterol, heart disease, allergies, gastroenteric problems and obesity.
"With the consumption of alkaline antioxidant water for a period of 2 to 3 months, I have observed blood pressure slowly drop, due to the water’s solvent ability, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels."

Head of Kuninaka Hospital³
"Ionized alkaline antioxidant water improves body constituents and ensures effective healing to many illnesses. The uses of antioxidant water in gynaecological patients have proved to be very effective. The main reason for its effectiveness is that this water can neutralise toxins."
Prof. Watanabe Ifao,
"Antioxidant water is a saviour for those suffering with obesity and many adult diseases, providing assistance in enhancing good health."

Diabetes is predicted to increase globally by 2035, especially in Asia, where it’s estimated 55% of the world’s diabetes population resides.⁶ Studies show high dietary acid load is more likely to result in diabetes and high blood pressure and may increase the risk of heart disease. Recent observational studies also confirm an association between insulin resistance and low urine pH.⁷ In a large-scale study in Japanese adults, high dietary acid load score was significantly associated with an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes in men.⁸
"Having had type 1 diabetes and been on insulin for 41 years I don’t have to take as much insulin as my sugars are so much lower since I have started the detox. As a registered nurse, I wonder what Living Lean could do to unstable diabetic’s sugars. Maybe even stopping some type 2 diabetics needing tablets or insulin. Amazing, thank you."

Diet-induced metabolic acidosis has been associated with an increased risk of certain non-communicable diseases. These are conditions that are not infectious but may be inherited or caused by lifestyle factors, such as smoking and drinking alcohol.
In a review of several studies on the subject, it was found that an excessive release of acids into the bloodstream may predispose us to metabolic imbalances. Namely, an increase in mineral excretion, insulin resistance and cortisol release which are associated with an increased risk of diabetes and high blood pressure. It concluded that public policies were necessary to encourage intake of fruits and vegetables to achieve acid-alkaline balance and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.²
