The ultra-strict regime warns against ‘very acid forming’ foods like starchy grains and vegetables such as pasta, wheat and beans, all dairy products, meat fish and shellfish.'
Also banned are tea, coffee, sugar, fizzy drinks including soda and tonic water, and of course alcohol.
Victoria tweeted about her new eating scheme on Friday praising the recipe book by Vicki Edgson and organic chef Natasha Corrett.
While following the plan at least 70 per cent of your diet should be alkaline, while the other 30 per cent can be acidic, which basically means a lot of fruit and vegetables.
