If you could lose weight, feel better and get rid of a host of diseases just by changing what you eat would you do it? What if you did not have to change what you eat but how you combine your foods? Would you do it?
That is exactly what food combining is: you eat the same foods you have always eaten just combine them properly. Many people have reported that just by combining their foods properly they have felt better, no longer have indigestion, gas, food allergies, and many other problems related to digestion. Lots of people say they have lost weight just by combing their foods properly.
There are three main food types, concentrated proteins, concentrated starches, and neutral foods. This chart shows which foods go into which category. Basically to food combine never mix the concentrated proteins and the concentrated starches. You can mix foods from the neutral category with the other categories. It is that simple. Give it a try after a few days of food combining you will notice a huge difference.
