Food combining is a great way to manage your weight. The idea is that if you eat a single food by itself, or more than one food in the right combination with other foods,you maximize your digestive capacity and ability to break down the foods effectively. This means your body doesn’t hold on to undigested food which can then gets turned into fat balls of toxins and cellulite. Proper food combining allows the body to efficiently burn fat.
How it works:
Group 1: Proteins (meat,poultry,cheese,fish,eggs,milk,nuts) produce acid juices for their digestion. *They digest slowly.
Group 2: Carbohydrates (grains and the foods made from them) and starchy vegetables (such as potatoes,yams and sweet corn), which produce alkaline juices. *They digest quickly and require different enzymes to proteins.
If you combine Group 1&2 together,the competing enzymes and digestive juices will fight and neutralize each other. The result is that food doesn’t get digested properly.
Group 3: Salads, non-starchy vegetables, roots, seeds, herbs, spices, nut and seed oils.
*These can be digested with either Group 1 or 2 above.
Group 4: Fruit. This is out and on its own and holds the record for the *fastest digestion rate. Fruit uses completely different enzymes from all other groups above.
