  • 1. Food Combining Food combining refers to the combination of foods that are compatible with each other in terms of digestive chemistry. Food combining is a basic component of optimal nutrition because it allows the body to digest and utilize the nutrients in our foods to their fullest extent. Foods require different digestion. Mixing the wrong foods can lead to stomach upset, gas, bloating, and other digestive ails. Food combination is based on the theory that easy digestion is generated by combining foods that have the same digestion time. Also, different foods need different digestive enzymes to digest the food. Some acid based enzymes and some alkaline based enzymes are needed to digest food properly. However, if both come into contact at the same time, they neutralize each other and stop digestion. DON’TS OF FOOD COMBINING  Carbohydrate foods and acid foods should not be eaten at the same meal. Bread, rice, and potatoes should not be taken with lemons, pineapples, tomatoes, or any other sour fruits. Fruit acids prevent carbohydrate digestion and cause fermentation.  Do not eat two concentrated proteins together. Avoid meat and eggs, cheese and eggs, cheese and nuts, and nuts and meat combinations. Each protein requires different digestive juices and different times for digestion.
  • 2.  Acid fruits and proteins should not be eaten at the same time. Oranges, lemons and pineapples should not be eaten with meat, eggs, etc.  Do not eat concentrated protein and carbohydrates at the same meal. Nuts, meat, eggs, cheese with potatoes, as well as bread and cereals should be avoided.  Starch and sugars should not be combined. Honey and other sweeteners don’t mix with cereals and potatoes. Sugar with cereal ferments the food in the digestive tract.  Melons cannot be combined with any other foods. This is because melons decompose very easily.  Avoid desserts, especially after meals. Desserts eaten after meals digest and, ultimately, ferment because bacteria turn them into alcohols and acetic acid.  Drink water only before meals. Drinking water during meals or soon after meals will dilute the digestive juices.  Fats and oils cannot be combined with proteins. If you want to stay healthy and reduce the risk of various health problems like cancer, inflammation, and indigestion problems, beware of how food combinations impact digestion for optimal health and nutrition! ____________________________________________________________ ___________ Dr. Fred Bisci is an organic and raw food nutritionist with over 40 years of experience helping people improve longevity and reduce the risk of diet related illnesses.
