Q. How can I gain weight on an alkaline diet?
The alkaline diet does not necessarily have to be a low calorie diet. Nuts and good fats like avocados as well as root crops are included in this diet and can certainly help you gain weight. And the 80% alkaline diet is really for those recovering their health. For a healthy person, 60% alkaline is adequate and this will allow more meats, grains, and beans.
