Can baking soda and the Arclein Diet eliminate Viseral Fat?

The answer in this item is no, but  I beg to differ.  Weight loss is possible if you are able to control your input.  That means my Arclein Diet from ten years ago or what is now referred to as intermittent fasting.  Yet this usually does not resolve internal gut fat.  

Recent experimentation revealed that taking baking soda allowed me to eliminate cravings while fasting.  Thus fasting becomes easier to sustain.

That is important.  

I am making a conjecture though.  It is that a small daily dose of baking soda ( say 1/2 teaspoon) will increase the ph of your entire gut flora.  This will offset the imbalance caused by our modern diet that drives viseral fat accumulation and allow that fat to also retreat.

I do know that the Arclein diet eliminated the natural overhang of around thirty percent of body fat or about fifty pounds.  This left around twenty pounds of viseral fat.  It will be interesting to discover if this works.

Can drinking baking soda help you lose weight?

Baking soda is a chemical compound also known as sodium bicarbonate. Now, it is being claimed that drinking baking soda can help you lose weight and we are not surprised. Read on to know if the claim is true or not.

Drinking baking soda with water reacts with the acid in your stomach and turns it into water, salt and carbon dioxide. Due to its alkaline properties, baking soda can help soothe symptoms of nausea and indigestion.

Ideally, the pH of your stomach is supposed to be low. But when you eat a meal high in protein, the gastric cells have to secrete extra acid in order to break down the food. And when there is too much pressure on your stomach, the acid can travel to your esophagus and can cause acid reflux and indigestion. Having baking soda may soothe the problem.

Baking soda and weight

Though baking soda may help you feel better if you have indigestion, it definitely cannot help you lose weight. Only one small way in which it can help is by making you feel fuller for some time and thus reducing your calorie intake. But this is temporary.

Weight loss is possible only when one follows the right diet and exercise routine. One also needs to create a calorie deficit (burn more calories than what you are eating) in order to lose weight.

Baking soda can increase your gym performance

According to a study published by the European Journal of Applied Physiology, athletes who consumed baking soda 60 minutes prior to their performance, did better with less muscle fatigue as compared to those who consumed a placebo before the performance.

Another study says consuming baking soda before gym can help increase the exhaustion time.

But having it can also cause abdominal distress which ultimately may ruin your performance.
