Health-conscious people, who are looking to change their eating for the better, and for good, may feel overwhelmed by the amount of choices they have. Different types of foods require different digestive environments.
Many people are concerned over when, and if, they should have water with their food. “People are chronically dehydrated and, in general, they should drink more water,” Dr. Daryl Gioffre, celebrity nutritionist and author of GET OFF YOUR ACID, says. “I’m not concerned about that; just don’t chug the water.”
Water may not be the most concerning part of your meal, but everything else is, especially when it comes to some all-time favorite combinations such as macaroni and cheese or peanut butter and jelly.
Peanut butter is on the list because of the many fungi it contains. But if you must have it, Dr. Gioffre says, make sure you always keep it in the fridge. “This will slow down the progression of the fungus and will reduce its carcinogenic effect.”
Some immediate consequences of bad food combinations are stomach ache, fatigue and constipation. Long-term bad eating habits can lead to dry skin, chronic inflammation and poor sleep. Avoid the following simple food combining mistakes and you will start feeling better almost immediately.
