    Has anyone tried supplmenting there diet with 2-3 teaspoons of baking soda to reduce acidity in the body? Does it help?

    Bump, Even if this helps only slightly I would think it'd be worth it, considering baking sodas cost (liquid or powder?)

    Does baking Soda have calories? what are they considered carbs?

    Yep that's a good thought/observation. A former powerlifter and friend of mine used to supplement with baking soda, he said it helped more than any other "supplement" he'd tried (creatine, etc.)

    worth looking in too, I don't know the dosage or how you could stomach the stuff? but heh?
