When done correctly, food combining has been shown to assist with digestion, improve health and also aid with weight loss. Once learned, the principles are straight forward and easy to follow – especially for people committed to eating a clean, healthy diet. In a nutshell, food combining can be defined as eating certain categories of foods either together or separately. The goal is to optimize the good health that comes from specific food combinations.
Weight Loss – since the body can better digest food when consumed in the right combination – or alone – more of it is eliminated through digestion. The body metabolizes food more efficiently. There is less food that is converted to and stored as fat.
Increased Energy – When the body doesn’t have to work so hard to digest food, there is more energy for other bodily functions like exercise, reading, playing with your kids and so on.
Reduced Bloating and Gas – When the body gets bloated and or becomes gassy after a meal, it is telling you something is amiss. Correctly combining foods according to the principles above will reduce the discomfort that comes with gas and bloating caused by improper digestion.
Anti – Aging – The better the body can digest food, the better the nutrition (provided the foods are healthy to begin with). The more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc the body absorbs, the better able it is to fight the aging process. This shows up as improved eyesight, less joint pain and healthier hair, skin and nails.
