Hay Diet Program
The Hay Diet is a nutrition method developed by the New York physician William Howard Hay
in the 1920s. It claims to work by separating food into three groups: alkaline, acidic,
and neutral. Acid foods are not combined with the alkaline ones.
Acid foods are protein rich, meat, fish, dairy, etc., and "alkaline" the carbohydrate-rich
starch foods like rice, grains and potatoes. It is also known as the food combining diet.
Hay created his meal plan to treat medical problems associated with obesity. He claimed that a change in eating habits rather than medication was beneficial in the treatment of conditions such as cardiac disease, kidney disease, and kidney disorders.
Hay diet is used as a weight-loss plan by the general public and people interested in alternative treatments. Hay diet plan reverses conditions such as arthritis, indigestion, constipation. The Hay diet is also regarded as a natural method for providing relief to people diagnosed with asthma and allergies.
Although the consumption of fruits and vegetables will help to relieve constipation, people should not rely solely on the Hay diet to treat condition such as heart disease, arthritis, allergies, and asthma.
