How to Combine Your Foods for Permanent Weight
you ever felt really tired after eating a meal? When you have a large meal do
you have an abundance of energy or do you just want to lie down and do just
about nothing? Lots of studies on food combining have shown that the human body
is not designed to digest more than one concentrated food in the stomach at the
same time. Itís not so much about the food we eat that make us overweight but
how we combine these foods that cause the problem. The reason we feel tired
after a meal is that it takes more energy in the digestion of food than anything
else you can do. The way the stomach is designed, food is to remain there for
approximately three hours for digestion before proceeding into the small
intestine. This only happens if you have combined your food properly.
Proteins and Carbohydrates cannot digest in the stomach at the one time. Let me
explain: Most digestion of food occurs in the stomach by digestive juices.
Protein requires a juice that is acidic to break it down and carbohydrates or
starches need an alkaline juice. When acid and alkaline mix they cancel each
other out, so therefore the digestive process is not going according to plan and
instead of taking three hours it lies in the stomach and rots. The undigested
protein putrefies and the undigested carbohydrates ferment. Because of this
crisis going on in the stomach, this is why we have an energy crisis. The body
is over working to find the proper combinations for digestion. Food that spoils
in your digestive system tract supplies no nutrition: it only increases your
level of "toxemia."
Correcting the Problem for Weight Loss
By simply separating your proteins from your carbohydrates
during the day you are freeing up energy that was used in the digestion process.
We want the food to pass quickly and efficiently through the intestines. If you
decide to have protein in a meal e.g. meat, have it with vegetables and a salad.
If you decide to have potatoes have it with some cheese and a big salad or
vegetables. By simply combining your food properly youíre still enjoying
yourself when you eat, and youíre still eating the foods you like. The only
difference is youíre not throwing them all together and eating them all at the
Putting it all together
Food Combining works, and the thing about it is do can do
it as much or as little as you like. The best thing about this is you donít even
have to believe a word I say. Try it for yourself to prove the difference. If
you have been eating all your foods together then take 7 days of your life and
try this out. After the 7 days you will not only have an abundance of energy but
you will have shed a few pounds.
Proper food combining works for everybody. What goes on in the stomach of one
person is identical to what goes on in the stomach of any other person in the
world. Even if youíre totally skeptical, just try it and see the difference.
