Recommended Posts

What is it? Does it work?

there are many article, books, etc...on food cobining. It helps ease digestion and unpleasant digestive symptoms...

The basics of food combining is as followed:

Eat proteins with fats

Eat carbs alone

Eat fruit on an empty stomach or 2 hrs after a meal

When switching from a Carb meal to a Protein/fat meal you must wait atleast 3 hrs after your last meal

Veggies can be eaten whenever and with each meal

A great book that goes into detail on these concepts and the concept of healthy digestion is called "Eating Alive"

I wouldn't call it food group combinging, but I almost never eat carbs alone (certainly not simple carbs) because it can give me a headache and make me feel nauseous. nothing mysterious about that, though - it's just a simple hypoglycemic response.

Yes, it's GREAT! Years before learning of being a Celiac, I started doing 'food combining', the 'Blood Type Diet', 'mini-meals', 'fruit on an empty stomach and alone', etc. All these things are likely the reason I'm still kickin'! Food combining isn't as critical now (being gluten-free), but it still helps, and I'll never remove it from my eating habits. It didn't seem to be an issue when my body was in "hyper-regeneration mode" (first 4 months), but now at 6 months, I notice I'm back to having more sensitivities (but less than before).

BTW, I first learned of this from 'Fit For Life' by Harvey Diamond. I had a book he mentions, but can't remember the name. I sent it to my sister, and she lost it.

Hi guys,

I started doing my own version of this 4 weeks ago. Been gluten-free 10 months now but was still having terrible stomach problems. FINALLY found a Homeopath who did a whole lot of blood tests, liver function and a couple of others.

They found Gilbert's Syndrome which explains the chronic nausea and why I wake up with yellow eyes every day. Also explains why I can't tolerate alcohol anymore. They also found Leaky Gut Syndrome.

I am eating carbs with salad/veg, protein with salad/veg, fruit in between on its own (2 hours either way). I am slowly starting to feel a LOT better. My energy levels are increasing too - slowly but I see a definite improvement after things being pretty much stagnant for the last 10 months.

Eating this way has stopped my gas and rumbling stomach, which was really embarrassing. It definitely works for me and its really easy to do - also helps a lot with my sugar cravings.

May well be worth a try!

Yvonne
