in health •  6 months ago

Health is as much a matter of eliminating toxins as it is about eating the proper foods. Elimination, however, is dependent on a healthy digestive system.

According to various studies, by combining foods in a certain way, you can help your body digest the foods you eat more easily. I have prepared a chart below with the basic foods in each group, to make this easier.

This way of eating should not be viewed as a diet, but rather a better, healthier way of combining foods to allow optimal digestion, absorption, assimilation, and elimination to occur.

Today we will have a look at the best combinations for Proteins, Vegetables and Starches.


• No proteins and starches at the same meal.

• No fruits and vegetables at the same meal.

• Melon and watermelon are best eaten separately and not combined with other fruit.

• Eat fruit by itself and not with your main meal.

• Wait for 40 – 60 minutes after eating fruit before eating any other foods.

no protein with starch, meaning no meat with potatoes or no fried chicken because we use flour to coat them and fry. oh.. I really like your chart and I shall store it in my phone. I really need a deep cleanse inside me. Thanks for sharing!


this certainly helps in the cleansing process, and its easier to digest @asianetwork

Nice that was informative :) hadn't thought of combination of foods in that way at all, thanks for sharing
