Food combining

The Food Combing Diet is based on the idea that certain food groups are digested best when eaten in combination, while others should only be eaten alone.

The diet meal plans in the Food Combing Diet suggest the following:

  • Proteins (beans, nuts, seeds, meat, fish, poultry) and starches (grains, pasta, breads, cereal, rice, carrots, etc.) should be eaten at separate meals.
  • Proteins can be eaten with vegetables and starches can be combined with vegetables.
  • Fruits should be eaten alone.

Pros : Food combining diet

Verdict : Food combining diet

Although this diet meal plan has been around for many years, there is no scientific evidence that it works. Picking and choosing between certain foods can lead to shortages of vital nutrients that the body requires.

In addition, reducing the amount of protein you eat is likely to result in muscle loss, and flies in the face of current research that suggests that increasing the protein that you eat will result in increased weight loss.
