3 easy rules for food combining by donna gates

  1. 1. 3 Easy Rules For Food Combining Learn How Food Combining Can Help Your Digestion Donna Gates M.Ed., ABAAHP Jan 18, 2016 at 12:00 PM (ARTICLE FROM YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE WEBSITE) Food combining means what to eat with what. It’s an important feature of The Body Ecology Diet and one reason The Diet works whileother anti-candida diets do not. Even if you no longer eat foods that feed the yeast, the overgrowth of yeastin your system won’tdisappear if you are combining these foods improperly. To conquer candidiasis, it is essential to practice the principles of proper food combining. There are two reasons for this: • Eating foods together that are not compatible in the stomach (see Figure5 below) causes poor digestion and leads to fermentation. This fermentation produces alcohol and sugars, and the yeast feed off these sugars and multiply rapidly, creating more toxins in the body. • People with candidiasis haveoverly sensitive digestive tracts. Improper food combining further stresses thedigestive tract and causes it to work even less efficiently. By following the rules of proper food combining, you avoid fermentation in the digestive system. The healing process begins by allowing the overworked digestive tract to begin to function as it should, and a healthy digestive tract is an important firststep toward the total renewal that restores your body’s balanced ecology. Benefits of FoodCombining • You’ll feel better. You will be less bloated and will stop having symptoms such as gas and stomach gurgling. • You’ll have a systemto guide your choice of foods, an approach that makes it easier to decide whatto eat. You’ll be better able to stick with The Diet. • You’ll never be overweight. In fact, you’llprobably lose someweight. Properly combined food is assimilated better and allows the body to metabolize it better and avoid storing fat. • You’ll have more energy.
  2. 2. The Basics Food combining can be summarized in three basic rules.
  3. 3. Rule #1: Eat fruits alone and on an empty stomach. Fruits encouragethe growth of yeastin the body, so as you begin The Body Ecology Diet, the only fruits allowed are very sour ones like lemons, limes, and berries. Unsweetened juices frompomegranates, cranberries, and black currants are also allowed. These are acidic or “sour” fruits. Low in sugar, they do not create yeast overgrowth. Allother fruits are too sweet. Fruits pass through the digestive systemvery quickly. They usually leave the stomach within 30 minutes and enter the small intestine, where they continue to be digested. But if you eat them with other foods (such as a protein or starch) that take three to five hours or more to digest, the fruit is held up and starts to ferment. This means poor assimilation of nutrients but, more important, it sets up a perfect environment for yeastovergrowth, as they feed off the sugar produced fromthe fermentation. While it’s best to eat fruit alone, proper food combining allows you to eat acidic or sour fruits with protein fat foods such as milk kefir, yogurt, or nuts and seeds. For example, you could combine strawberries, blueberries, or pomegranatejuice with yogurtor milk kefir . . . or a handfulof soaked and sprouted sunflower seeds. As your health improves and you introducemore fruits, stay with the “sour” fruits, like grapefruitand kiwi. They are also low-sugar fruits and haveenough of an acidic quality that they usually don’t activate yeast symptoms. Remember, the sweeter fruits havetoo much sugar. The only time your stomach is truly empty is when you wakeup in the morning. So, that’s the best time to eat fruit like blueberries. Sweet fruits in the morning weaken your adrenals. Please note that one of the most frequent mistakes is to introduce new foods, especially sweet foods, too soon, before your yeastinfection is fully conquered and your body ecology is restored. If you do not have a body-ecology imbalance, sour fruitcould be an ideal breakfast, becauseit contains a lot of water, which your systemneeds after being asleep withoutfluid all night. When you wake up, we highly recommend drinking a couple of glasses of water, becauseyour body is dehydrated, before eating the sour fruit. Adding lemon juice to your second glass of water is an age-old way to stimulate the peristaltic action of your colon. A “probiotic juice” combining a sour juice (like black currantjuice) with a probiotic drink (young coconutkefir or Body Ecology’s Cocobiotic) adds beneficial bacteria to your digestive tract. Black currantjuice (unsweetened) is used to stimulate the

We love it, too, because only a few ounces will give you lots of energy. One exception to this rule is lemons and animal protein. Lemon juice squeezed onto a piece of grilled salmon, for example, aids digestion and provides a nice expansion/ contraction balance. Rule #2: Always eat protein with non-starchy and /or ocean vegetables. When you eat animal-protein foods such as eggs, meat, poultry, and fish, your stomach must produce hydrochloric acid and an enzyme called pepsin to digest them. While digestion of protein begins in your stomach, it continues breaking down and is assimilated once it reaches your small intestine. The carbohydrates and the fats eaten at that meal digest only when they reach it. The digestive enzymes produced by the small intestine are alkaline. When you eat a starchy food, such as a potato or rice, with a protein, like chicken, this creates too much work for your digestive tract and results in poor digestion, then fermentation, which creates sugars and a field day for the yeast. Non-starchy vegetables and ocean vegetables are the most compatible foods to eat with protein meals. They require neither a strong alkaline nor a strong acid condition to digest properly. So by eating protein foods with non-starchy vegetables, you can achieve optimal digestion. Recommended Non-starchy Vegetables Asparagus Bamboo shoots Beet greens Bok choy Broccoli Brussels sprouts Burdock root Cabbage Carrots Cauliflower Celeriac Celery Non-starchy vegetables go with justabout everything. You can eat them with oil; butter; ghee; eggs; grains; starchy vegetables (like acorn squash and potatoes); lemons; limes; and raw sunflower, caraway, flax, or pumpkin seeds.
  5. 5. MenuTips: Combine: • Fish with stir-fried or steamed vegetables. • Chicken with a leafy green vegetable and an all-vegetable soup such as cream of cauliflower with dill. • A large vegetable salad with protein (chilled salmon or sliced boiled egg) and dressing (oil free or fromorganic, unrefined oils). • An onion, red pepper, and zucchiniomelet or ocean vegetable omelet with steamed asparagus and garlic. Rule #3: Always eat grains, grain-like seeds, andstarchy vegetableswithnon- starchy and/or ocean vegetables. The grain-like seeds that are allowed on the Body Ecology Diet in stage one are amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, and millet. Starchy vegetables include acorn and butternut squash, lima beans, English peas, corn (fresh), water chestnuts, artichokes and Jerusalemartichokes, and red skin7 potatoes. Combine them with non-starchy vegetables or ocean vegetables for some delicious, filling meals. Combine: • Millet casserole, a steamed leafy green vegetable, and yellow squash and leeks sautéed in butter. • Buckwheat/quinoa/millet croquettes topped with the Body Ecology Diet Gravy, steamed greens, and carrot-cauliflower soup. • Dilled potato salad, watercress soup, and a leafy green salad with Body Ecology Diet Salad Dressing. • Acorn squash stuffed with curried quinoa, broccoli with seasoned butter, and the sea vegetable hijiki with onions and carrots.
