Food Combining Summary

Google+
This food combining discussion will focus on three main points, Quantity of food eaten, Type & Timing of food eaten, and Quality of food eaten.
1. Food combining is about the Quantity of foods/drinks ingested into the body, meaning over-eating, moderate eating, and under-eating.  
2. Food combining is about the Type & Timing of the foods/drinks. Type means is the food a “carbohydrate” food, “fat” food, or “protein” food, acid or alkaline forming). Type also means is the food a “Whole” food, “Organic” food, “Raw” food, “Ripe” food, “Fresh” food, “Local Grown” food. Timing means what types of foods/drinks are ingested together at the same meal (at the same time) -and- what type of foods/drinks are ingested 1-3 hours after the meal (eating/drinking between meals), while digestion of the previous meal foods is still in process. 
3. Food combining is about the Quality of the foods/drinks combined or taken into the body. 
Understanding the quality of the foods and drinks and topicals, meaning knowing the ingredients and if they are wholesome and non-toxic, is very important. Quality can also be measured if the food is “Whole”, “Organic”, “Raw”, “Ripe”, “Fresh”, “Local Grown”, and that it is not refined, processed, pasteurized (heated), chemically preserved, GMO, or has synthetic ingredients. 
 


















Food Combining Points Briefly Elaborated


1. Food combining is about the Quantity of foods/drinks ingested into the body, meaning over-eating, moderate eating, and under-eating.

Of all dietary practices, to "systematically under eat" is the first and foremost intelligent pattern in which to adapt. After eating there should be no sleepiness, but instead the feeling of being awake with energy and capability to act. If there is a feeling of being slightly hungry still, this is the feeling energy that should be allowed to remain, not too hungry and not too full. Over time, this awake feeling energy is felt over time to be “available usable energy”, not dulled down by over eating too much food and drink. Over-eating usually creates undigested foods which putrefy in the bowels, thus breeding all kinds of excess acidic waste growths like bacteria’s, yeasts, fungus', worms, etc, etc. “Calorie Restriction” is one of the major hallmarks of current longevity tests. Depending on the daily physical exertion and/or exercise, an average daily calorie intake amount ranges 1,200 to 2,000 calories, of high carbohydrate, low fat & low protein foods and liquids, and as much raw foods as possible.

A general percentage of eating Carbohydrate foods, Fat foods, and Protein foods is easy to remember – “approximately” 80% Carbohydrate foods, 10% Fat foods, 10% Protein foods. A “low fat & low protein” diet is also a summary of this understanding. A low fat & low protein whole food plant based diet is consistently healthy overall “combining or mix” of foods and liquids for the health of the body.

2. Food combining is about the Type & Timing of the foods/drinks. Type means is the food a “carbohydrate” food, “fat” food, or “protein” food, acid or alkaline forming). Type also means is the food a “Whole” food, “Organic” food, “Raw” food, “Ripe” food, “Fresh” food, “Local Grown” food. Timing means what types of foods/drinks are ingested together at the same meal (at the same time) -and- what type of foods/drinks are ingested 1-3 hours after the meal (eating/drinking between meals), while digestion of the previous meal foods is still in process. 
 
Digestion is served most by combining foods which have roughly the same 'digestion time' and need the same 'digestive secretions'. Here are general food categories in order from "slowest-longest digestive time" to "quickest-shortest digestion time" - Cooked Fats & Protein, Raw Fats & Protein, Nuts/Seeds, Starches (which are complex carbohydrates), Raw “cellulose” vegetables, Cooked Vegetables, Fermented Foods/Drinks, Cooked Fruits, Raw Fruits, Fresh Vegetable Juices, Fresh Fruit Juices, Honeys, Sugars, Alcohols. 
 
Protein foods require the most acidic secretions for digestion. Therefore, better to eat proteins first and have the body secrete its most acidic digestive fluids first, making it easier for all other foods eaten thereafter to be digested well. Likewise, it is best not to eat/drink alkalizing substances before proteins, like mineral carbonated water, bread & butter, which will bring more alkalizing type secretions into the stomach, and thus counter-balance the need for stronger acidic secretions to properly digest proteins.
