There are nine (9) rules that can be identified as helpful in meeting our nutrition and digestive needs, which are divided in the food combining groups of Acid-Starch, Protein-Carbohydrate, Protein-Protein, Protein-Fat, Acid-Protein, Sugar-Starch, Starch-Starch Combinations, with the exception of Melons and Milk alone. These rules have been tested in practice by Dr. Herbert M. Shelton who wrote the popular book, "Human Life Its Philosophy and Laws. I will provide a brief summary of one of the rules of "Correct Food Combining" to help you identify one of the food combinations as follow:
Never eat a concentration protein and a concentrated carbohydrate at the same meal. This means do not eat nuts, meat, eggs, cheese or other protein foods at the same meal with bread, cereals, potatoes, sweet fruits, and cakes. This is a suggestion to help you with any problems with digestive problems due to fermentation.
