Why shouldn’t you mix Carbohydrates and Proteins?

This food plan that I follow is the one devised by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. Their bestselling book “Fit for Life” was first published in 1985, and was re-released in 2010 and contains information in details. Buy the book

Here are the basics:

Till 12pm

You must only eat fruit, homemade smoothies in this period.  No coffee, tea, toast etc.  You can drink herbal teas, and water.  This works as fruits have their own digestive enzymes and only takes 20-35 minutes to digest. Fruits also contain fructose which will aid you to give up sucrose, refined sugar! 

 Lunch

Carbohydrate + Vegetables (preferably steamed as it holds most nutrients)

(30:70 ratio)

 Dinner

Protein + Vegetables (preferably steamed as it holds most nutrients)

(30:70 ratio)

 Do not mix carbohydrates with proteins. Protein is digested by acid and carbohydrates are digested by alkaline. Alkaline cancels out acid and so the food consumed is not properly assimilated and is very difficult to digest.

 Do not eat fruit after a main meal as it will ferment your meal.

 Add a tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil to main meals.
