6 Foods That Are Super Easy to Digest
Food Combining Basics (2017) | Dr Mona Vand
In fact, there is no evidence to support most of the principles of food combining. What’s more, many of the original food-combining diets were developed more than 100 years ago, when much less was known about nutrition and digestion.
What we now know about basic biochemistry and nutritional science directly contradicts most of the principles of food combining.
Here’s a closer look at the science behind the claims.
On avoiding mixed meals
The term “mixed meals” refers to meals that contain a combination of fat, carbs, and protein.
The rules of food combining are largely based on the idea that the body is not equipped to digest mixed meals.
However, this is not the case, as the human body evolved on a diet of whole foods, which almost always contain some combination of carbs, protein, and fat (2Trusted Source).
For example, vegetables and grains are typically considered carb-containing foods, but they all also contain several grams of protein per serving. Additionally, although meat is considered a protein food, even lean meat contains some fat (3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source).
Therefore, because many foods contain a combination of carbs, fat, and protein, your digestive tract is always prepared to digest a mixed meal.
When food enters your stomach, gastric acid is released along with the enzymes pepsin and lipase, which help start digestion of protein and fat (5Trusted Source).
Research shows that pepsin and lipase are released even if your food contains no protein or fat (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source).
Next, food moves into your small intestine. There, the gastric acid from your stomach is neutralized and your intestine is flooded with enzymes that work to break down proteins, fats, and carbs (7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source).
For this reason, there’s no need to worry that your body will have to choose between digesting protein and fat or starches and proteins. In fact, it’s specifically prepared for this type of multitasking.
