I'm going to do more research on this but take a look for yourself if you have the time and see what you think.

Also, well done on beating the cancer and trying to get the word out.
I did follow the hay diet for awhile because when you look at the theory it makes a lot of sense and in practise it does to. The basic premise is - don't mix foods that fight i.e. proteins and carbs are both acid forming but require a different environment to be digested efficiently. Whereas alkaline forming veg etc. is neutral in terms of digestion. So meals should consist of protein / veg or carbs / veg but not protein and carbs together.

I did feel pretty good doing this but the only problem was I found it quite difficult to follow as I would need to eat more often as I was hungry alot more often as the stomach became so highly efficient at digesting everything. It certainly puts alot less strain on digestion though.
