I keep hearing about these people who use food combining both for weight loss and just generally to feel better in the tummy region….
The theory behind a food combining diet is that the body was not designed to eat such a huge range of foods at once. Food combiner’s believe that the body was designed to require a certain PH or acidity level to digest foods and that mismatching foods impairs this process.
Experts in the food combining arena say that incomplete digestion is one of the leading causes of illness around the world.
There are a couple of ways the body can break down food:
a) Enzyme Breakdown - this is the body’s natural path and the ideal digestion scenario.
b) Bacterial Breakdown - this is what happens when the PH/acidity is off due to mismatching foods.
Bacterial breakdown can cause havoc with your body leading to ailments including candida, bloating, burping, fatigue, headaches, flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation.
