I am not an alcoholic, chronically starved, or diabetic, lol!

Yeah, I kinda figured that around my workout I wouldn't want the sodium bicarbonate in spite of what the article said (because thanks to many insightful discussions on this site I know the benefits of lactic acid and other biproducts of a grueling workout ).

I was more looking at the picture of my entire day, possibly being acidic. I admit that I don't eat enough leafy greens, assuming that I keep my current level of vegetables constant, could a little potassium as a supplement help to make up for some of the lack of vegetables?

If it helps, I currently get about 1828mg of sodium and 5325mg of potassium throughout my day (excluding workout days where I use the recommended sodium in my PWO).
