This diagramon the left is a basic chart explaining food combining. Study more about food combining on the web and practice it as this is key to nutrition.
There are some other charts at the bottomof this page which you can print.
Over the years I have changed some of my ideas about eating fruit as the first meal. I have studied and tried dietary systems from India, China, North America and other places.
I have tried raw food diet for 6 months which was very powerful, been vegetarian, eaten meat in my diet and learned about the keto diet and intermittent fasting.
Each person must do a little research and try what works for them. Remember that at some parts of your life certain foods may need to be added to your diet and some may need to be removed.
In another phase of your life you may need to modify. We are dynamic beings so listen to your body.
I have really enjoyed learning from a chiropractor, Dr Berg, who has many excellent videos teaching lay people about the body.
Please look at his videos on You Tube and you will learn much about the body and nutrition.
Eliminate from your diet as much as possible:
The reason to eliminate these foods is not just that they are “dead” foods (no life or vibration in them), but because they throw off your very crucial acid-base balance. Your blood is like a swimming pool and your kidneys are like the pool boy that constantly checks to see if the water (or your blood) is in the right concentration or pH range. If it is too acidic or too alkaline he will add certain chemicals to bring the pool back to balance. When we eat the above foods they make our blood acidic and to balance out the blood the body takes calcium from our body to do it. This is not good for obvious reasons. It will also stress out the kidneys (the pool boy) leading to future problems.
Minimize your animal protein intake or have very small portions. Animal foods (cheeses, meats, eggs, fish and seafood) also make the body acidic. The body does not need large amounts of protein to function well, and most nuts, grains, soy products, and other legumes can provide plenty of protein. Dairy products seem to cause a lot of mucous production in people, which is the bodies’ outright way of saying “get this out of me!” Anyone with any kind of digestive problems (including flatulence and burping), any skin conditions, any lung problems, any joint aches, any learning and concentration problems, or any problems battling with frequent colds or headaches should severely restrict or eliminate dairy from their diet. Soy milk, tofu, soy cheeses, veggie burgers and veggie deli slices are becoming more and more available and provide an excellent source of calcium and other vitamins and minerals.
AVOID ANYTHING WITH NUTRASWEET OR ASPARTAME IN IT INCLUDING POP DRINKS. IT KILLS YOUR BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM AND WILL BE LINKED ONE DAY TO SOME ALZHEIMER AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS DIAGNOSES.
AVOID ANYTHING THAT HAS THE WORDS ‘HYDROGENATED’ OR ‘PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED’ IN THE INGREDIENTS. They have a long half life and stay in the body for months if not years!
Avoid chewing gum as it confuses your body into thinking it is eating, which tires the digestive system. Later when you eat, the system is tired and inefficient. On top of that, most gums are now made with artificial sweeteners!
These are recommendations and not meant to replace any medical or other health recommendations from a qualified health practitioner. Any changes or concerns to one’s diet are done entirely at their own risk.
