Food Combining

One food at a meal is ideal! The safest way to eat on a daily basis is to eat simply. It is helpful to keep a log of everything you eat and are around. Once you have your health under control and feel comfortable with this new way of eating, add in more recipes and ideas. In time you will have your own program.

Drink 8 glasses of water from a pure source a day, but never with food. Your goal is to aid digestion not slow it down. Take it slow and be forgiving. Eat fruit at least 1/2 hour before other foods.

NOTE: Any combination of vegetables may be mixed with either one protein or one starch per meal. Never mix fruit with anything. Eat fruit at least 1/2 hour before other foods.
