Acidic levels and putting muscle weight onmorehydrating

Hey Ross

I have been on the Alkaline diet for 3 weeks now with some great results.

The arthritis in my hands has improved, I have lost 10 lbs and have energy to spare.

Question 1) I haven’t seen any real change in my acid level when I test myself. Still says acidic. Is it too soon to see a change?

Question 2) I have reached my target weight and don’t want to loose anymore. I want to start lifting weights again. Any advise to add some muscle weight on?

Thank You!
