Food combining is a life-changing gut hack. My client Jane Lamp says, “I lost 15 pounds in three months just by food combining! I did not count calories or change one other thing. I just followed Julia’s food combing chart, and it was so easy.”
Yes, it really is that easy. The practice of properly combining foods is based on the understanding of how digestion works. The body releases specific digestive enzymes for each food group. When many types of foods are consumed at one time, enzyme production slows and food sits in the stomach like a rock. That is one reason why digestive enzymes, such as Enzyme Energy, are so critical to digestion.
However, even with digestive enzymes, eating foods from multiple food groups, for instance, carbs, proteins, fats, and fruits, slows digestion and halts metabolism. This creates bloat, weight gain, toxicity, inflammation, brain fog, and constipation.
How do you feel after eating Thanksgiving dinner? Many people spend the rest of the day on the couch. Much of this fatigue has to do with the many types of foods consumed on holidays, in one huge meal. Yet, most cuisines are based on using proteins, carbs, and fats in one dish. This is why so many people struggle with obesity, blood sugar, and inflammatory disease. Their digestion is just not functioning optimally.
Food combining is one answer for healing digestive distress. This powerful concept was popularized by the 1990’s best-seller Fit For Life, which documented this sensible understanding of digestive health. If you have any questions once you receive your chart, contact me in the chat box.
