Food combining is the concept of eating food in certain combinations for overall health, improved digestion and weight loss.
There are many concepts in food combining, but the most basic principle (and the most effective!) is to separate fruit from other foods. Fruit digests much more rapidly than grains, meats, dairy, starches, proteins and fats. If fruit is eaten with or after other foods, it can actually begin to ferment and cause gas and bloating!
It’s best to eat fruit on its own away from meals, or 15-30 minutes before a meal.
Eating fruit before a meal can actually jump start your digestion and metabolism, and often crush cravings for sweet foods after eating!
