Did you know that digesting food requires more energy than any other function in the human body?
Food combining is one of my favorite tricks to streamline the digestive process. Though food combining principles can get very complicated, depending on which expert you ask, I prefer to keep them simple.
Studies have shown that humans have a tendency to overeat when we are offered a wide variety of foods during a meal. (source) So, by simplifying our meals, we will naturally eat less, without counting calories or worrying about portion sizes.
For a properly combined meal, simply choose ONE category and only eat foods out of that category for that particular meal. A sandwich on whole-grain bread, filled with avocado, mustard, lettuce, tomato and sprouts. A leafy green salad topped with cherry tomatoes and goat cheese, followed by a piece of baked fish served with a side of roasted broccoli and cauliflower. A leafy green salad topped with dried cranberries and raw walnuts, followed by a platter of raw hummus served with raw crudites. Note: There is a lot of debate over the science behind food combining, without much evidence to back it up. Since that protein powder has been processed to isolate the protein and remove the carbs, i would say it is more like nut or a seed (but not animal protein). Hi I’m not 100% but I think because you mixed a protein with the fruit, just the salad alone with the fruits minus the chicken should be fine. To go into further detail from what micheline stated, chicken requires an acidic state in your stomach, yet the fruit requires an alkaline state. Btw: Choosing a real light grey font colour in this reply box as well as a tiny font size is really hard on the eyes. Keep in mind almonds, and almost all seeds and nuts that have not been soaked and slowly dried in temperatures around 130-150f max will not be fully utilized in digestion and you will only be getting about 15-20% of the nutrients.
Afterwards, the almonds don’t necessarily have to be dried (unless you prefer them that way for storage or convenience).
One thing I’m confused about, you said to pick One main item, whether it be Starch, Animal Protein etc and then combine that with a Leafy Veg. I’ve promoted your website to my friends on Facebook and hope you gain a deeper fanbase as a result. Principles of Combining Foods Properly was made popular by Dr Herbert M Shelton in Dr Shelton’s Hygienic Review decades before Fit for Life.

She immead told me to GooG Food Combine and Natural Hygiene (and I ended up here (smile)).. I’m just curious, but why would bananas be the only fresh fruit allowed with nuts, seeds and dried fruits? I believe it’s because bananas have a much lower water content when compared to other fresh fruits, so they have a slower digestion time that is similar to dried fruits.

The other day Trey my dog, had his checkup and the Vet reminded us that raw ingredients in home made dog food can contain bacteria.

The Vet explained that some people go to the butcher and ask for raw beef bones to supplement the calcium, but these can carry bacteria; so  that is not a good idea.
There are products on the market that use a pressurized sterilization method for beef bones for dogs. Our Vet did not think any other supplements were really required, as long as you are including vegetables and fruits in the homemade dog food. Of course freezing is also an option; you could make two weeks worth of food and freeze some and thaw as needed. Recently the FDA had a recall of Diamond Pet Foods dog food contaminated with Salmonella in 10 states. If bacteria is such a big concern by the FDA then why would I take the chance of introducing the same problem. Hi Amber Jamie here, just to say that my Vet recommended freezing homemade cooked food not the raw. My family steamed veggies for years and I disliked them - they were always 'just veggies' to wolf through.
Junker, not really sure why you'd mention something that's clearly inedible as 'proof' that moderation is 'misleading'.
You could follow this meal with some dark chocolate or goat’s milk ice cream for dessert! Dessert could be a slice of raw cheesecake, a few raw macaroons, or a couple raw almond butter cups!
Sprouting doesn’t change it from being a starch, but the enzyme processing that removes the starch probably does.
When both combined the stomach cannot fully digest these items to the fullest extent so they end up sitting for a while in a confused state and end up getting pushed into your digestive tract where it starts to ferment and create harmful gases which is why you were bloated and got cramps. That is to say, soaking them does not release enzyme inhibitors due to a sprouting process. Also, removing the skins via blanching also removes the anti-nutrients, as they are conveniently located in the protective seed coat, similar to most seeds. When you gave us an example of the sandwich option you said we could take a potato and put Butter on top of it, along with the Bread which is the starch . The simpler, the better, if you ask me, so that people can actually eat without questioning what they eat all the time. I ended up buying his books (he had many of them) that focused on fasting and food combining, which I actually liked reading his conservative material, but he passed away and the facility was eventually closed..
Food combining is the easiest and most successful way I have found to lose and maintain weight. My Oatmeal with Nuts and some dried fruits (cranzins); with Two Boild Eggs – This is now NOT okay???

Of course when talking about eating and drinking we're only talking about things that can be eaten and drank! It stands to reason, then, that the best way to free up some extra energy is to make our digestion as quick and efficient as possible. You can eat fruit as an afternoon snack or post-workout, as long as it’s been 3-4 hours since your last properly-combined meal. When you’re choosing just ONE food category at a time, then filling the rest of your plate with raw and cooked vegetables, you’re bound to be making healthier choices!
As I’ve just recently gotten into this subject I use to combine tons of seeds nuts fruits and fats into smoothies and thought I was being super healthy but wondered why I was so bloated and felt tired afterwards. For future reference if you were to get the same salad, ask for the fruit on the side and enjoy them first, give yourself 20-30 minutes and then enjoy the rest of the meal.

Raw feeding: natural diet labradors - labrador site, ‘raw feeding’ is a complete guide to providing a natural diet or raw dog food to labradors and other medium and large breed dogs.
It really requires very little effort, in fact once a week you can prepare the food all at once and then divide into portions for the week. So, food combining may just work because it encourages the consumption of more whole foods and simpler meals.
Learn the guidelines, but always know each of our bodies are different and experiment on yourself to see what works best for you. This looks VERY, VERY similar to the Somersizing program which started in the 90s and was based on the French way of living.
I followed the combining food plan for many years back when it was called ‘Natural Hygiene. If I eat fruit by itself or oats by themselves, wouldn’t that create a big blood sugar spike and then fall? While your vet is definitely right to recommend freezing your raw diet before feeding it to Trey, it’s important to be aware that dogs are able to handle the normal levels of bacteria in raw foods. A better example and analogy regarding to moderation would be Vitamin, because excessive vitamin intake can be poisonous and hence should be taken within moderation. I feel that I’m prone to that, which is why I usually eat oats with eggs and fruit with nuts.
They have shorter digestive systems which are also much more acidic than humans which enables them to eat raw food diets.
Previously I have combined the protein powder with Almond Milk, ground Flax Seed, and usually a cup of Blueberries.
I think the Fit for Life got a lot of bad rap later down the road because of how some of the principles were followed, such as eating all the fruit you want. Too much fructose doesn’t work for some people, and also being only vegetarian aspect. Then when Marilyn Diamond came out with another book and perspective, saying how that eating style almost killed her, and now she is all about meat, etc, also put a shadow on it. I’m glad to find this website, and a different perspective on it, which is breaking down the sweet and acidic fruits, and adding more protein.
