There are several books on this subject. One is "The pH Miracle". A book may do a better job of explaining than what you're getting on the internet.
The same goes for vegetables as well as fruit. Can't seem to find a creditable source. So I tried alkaline water which turned out to be equally confusing with nearly all web sites trying to sell you something.
As far as water goes, there's usually no need to buy anything. The pH of ordinary tap water should be okay. I called my water company and was told that my tap water has a pH of 7.6 (that's with chlorine but no flouride). And I usually put my tap water in a bottle and let the chlorine evaporate. If you want to make it more alkaline, just squeeze some fresh lemon juice into it.
Animal protein is what you should be careful not to eat to much of.
Four of the best foods, in my opinion, are lemons, limes, grapefruits and raw tomatoes. If you think you are too acid, you can get back in balance with these. If you get a book you'll find lists of foods.
