What is food combining? Definition:
Food Combining refers to a diet in which food is consumed only separately in time after carbohydrate-rich and high-protein food:
Potatoes, rice, noodle, whole grains
Protein rich foods
Eggs, fish, meat, dairy products, cheese
Food without clear classification
Food combining is based on the assumption that the combination of carbohydrates and proteins leads to an over-perfusion of the body. With proper separation of foods into nutrient groups, the body would better absorb them. So at least the assumption. However, scientific studies have not been able to confirm these assumptions or determine their health effects. Furthermore, many foods contain carbohydrates and proteins alike, so that a strict separation appears practically impossible.
Nevertheless, many people still report a significant weight loss after a diet. The reason for the weight reduction is not the food combining itself, but the concomitant renouncement of fast food and high calorie foods. Trennkostdiätt prohibits the ingestion of food with carbohydrates and proteins, just as they occur in combination in ready meals, Schnitzel with French fries, or hamburgers. Theoretically, consumption would be allowed in the sense of the diet, provided that the hamburgers (carbohydrates) were eaten first, and then a few hours later the hamburger meat (egg whites) would be eaten. But because nobody wants to eat these dishes so separately, these products disappear completely from the diet during the raw food diet. For this reason, there is an erroneous opinion that dietary supplements promote weight loss.
