Food combining: Learn the tips on this necessity for better health today (part 1)

without comments

Eating is one of the numerous sources of enjoyment provided to us by Nature. Though it was intended for this activity to be a source of nourishment for the body, since the majority of modern day dietetic innovations avoid proper food combining methods, they tend to do the exact opposite.

In a traditional diet, everything is mixed together in every possible way. Ease of digestion isn’t the goal, but rather the excitement of the senses in one meal. Dr. Tilden used to say that Nature never produced a sandwich-a modern dietetic abomination. Such protein-starch combinations are of recent origin and like the majority of modern meals today, instead of feeding the body, they really poison it.

Bad Food combining creates indigestion, fermentation and gas. Food is fermenting and putrefying in the intestines, which is one of the main causes of constipation, a clogging up of the bodily tissues.

As a result, simplicity of a meal should be the goal when eating for health. This consists of first of all, proper food combining principles, taking in the right quantity at one time and eating only when truly hungry.

Certain foods take more time to digest than others and as a result should not be eaten at the same time as ones that would leave the stomach quicker. Ideally, eating one kind of food (fruit or vegetable) at one time would be the most ideal, but granted, we live in a society where success at certain things may hinge on enjoyment of the practice.

Variety is one certain way of increasing enjoyment but when it comes to food, especially for the health seeker, this should be approached with care.
