Basically protein foods (meat,dairy etc) require an acidic digestive enzyme to digest, and your starchy food require an alkali digestive juice. Therefore if you mix meat together with rice/potato in one meal they cancel each other out and the body has to use extra energy to digest the mixed food in the stomach. This is why you feel so tired and lethargic after eating a big plate of meat and potatoes for example. t robs the body of energy
So now...how important is it to combine your food types correctly and does it effect your rate of fat lose and packing on lean muscle?
I would think so as correct food combining would allow the body to digest optimally instead of food sitting on undigested food in the stomach and fermenting and going to waste (as well as give you more energy in general). Ive tried this for the past 2 weeks and i feel like a new man....its just bloody tricky not being able to mix meat with starch as one cannot have the usual chicken and rice, fish and rice etc etc (most meals have a starch member!), no mixing avo with meat etc etc.
