Food Combining is a way of eating to simplify the complexity of digesting our foods. It ensures that the foods we eat can travel through our entire digestive system with ease.
Depending on the combinations of foods you are eating, a healthy looking meal may end up causing weight gain and/or digestive problems.
There are two simple rules to food combining:
1) No proteins and starches at the same meal, wait two hours between protein and starches
2) No fruits and vegetables at the same meal, wait two hours between fruits and vegetables
So how can using these rules help? By food combining we are taking into account mechanical digestion (chewing and churning) and chemical digestion (micronutrient breakdown & enzyme production) of our macronutrients.
