Dr. M.T. Morter, Jr. addresses the importance of proper food combining. The way you combine foods makes a big difference in remaining healthy and avoiding indigestion. For example, the chemistry of the stomach makes the American practice of eating steak and potato at the same meal unhealthy. The steak (protein) requires an acid medium in the stomach, while the potato (carbohydrate) requires an alkaline medium. This means they simply cannot be digested at the same time, as that would place stress on the digestive organs and prevent either food from being properly digested. So, what can you eat with what for maximum health benefit? The Food Combining CD outlines the guidelines you can follow to effectively combine when you dine!
