    Your stomach is already naturally way more acidic than any meat could ever be. The only way people who are caught up in the whole ph balance thing measure is by urine acidity. Well that is only measuring the excess that is being excreted. The ph actually inside your stomach hasn't changed a bit. The body is wonderfully self regulating.

    Eating a whole lot of alkaline foods could actually have the Tums effect. It would dilute the stomach acid thereby making digestion less effective. Not enough acid makes food sit there and start to ferment and bubble upwards. This is what causes reflux problems, insufficient acidity not excess acidity. Reflux is often cured simply by adding a swig of ACV before meals.

    Going gluten-free pretty much fixed any reflux issues I had. I used to not be able to sleep sometimes, it was that bad.

    And you're right, PB. Those of us with specific health issues don't have much choice about being strict. I don't ever want to go back to how I felt eating wheat.

    Exactly.

    Ask my mom how wonderful a low acid stomach is. She's had h. pylori causing ulcers TWICE in the past 5 years due to low acid making it flourish. The first time, she ended up in the hospital for a week. The second time, she lost about 20% of her body weight. And yet, she continues to take Tums almost every day.

    Your stomach is supposed to be acidic.

    So there I was leaving my local Planet Fitness at about 6:30 am in the morning when I was nice enough to hold the door for the girl carrying in the bagels for free bagel tuesday or what ever the hell they call it. And apparently I missed pizza monday.

    unfortunately, the irony is not quite heavy enough to bash them over the head with it...

    The office I work in tends to be quite mindful of the fact that I can't have Crisco or wheat, which I am VERY grateful for. The accountant brought in this truly decadent looking chocolate monstrosity of a cake. Fully prepared to ignore it, I turn to go back to my desk when she says "I didn't forget about you, [Naiad.] I got you this." She produces a clamshell container with a slice of chocolate cake in it. "It was all they had without cottonseed oil or wheat in it."
    It was a vegan, gluten free, low fat, sugar free... thing. No, it didn't have wheat or cottonseed oil in it. It did have an ingredients list that was 10 lines long with more than a few chemicals in it. I politely took a bite because she did make an effort and ditched it when I got back to my desk. It was foul.
    A for effort, though. It's nice when people at least try.

    All right, I finally have one!
    I went on a turkey hunt this past weekend. now, I had to get up very early, and frankly, didn't have time for breakfast. While me and my hunting buddy (more like mentor, actually) were out in the sticks, he complained about having to miss breakfast. I told him that I just had a cup of coffee, with a chunk chunk of butter thrown in. Now, he is fat with all kinds of health problems, I am lean, and in perfect health. he says to me:
    "Too bad our bodies don't run primarily on fat."
    (me) "Mine does"
    (him) "Only when there is nothing left"
    Where oh where to begin?

    I'm fully expecting this when I return home for Christmas. It is nice when they try, though.
