      Food combining is very real, its all about digestion times and processes. Some things i have found.

      Dairy + fiber acid fruit = no
      Dairy + acid juice = yes
      Dairy + sweet fruit = yes
      Meat + fruit = no
      eggs + fruit/dairy = yes

      I find fruit digests best either alone or with a high protein/low fat source, mainly dairy or eggs. Combining different types of fruit doesnt usually give me issues and i combine acid and sweet fruits quite a bit.

      Some of these things change depending on hunger and if ther digestive tract is relatively empty. If its full and you add a quick digesting food on top of everything, you might have some issues.

        Yeah, I'd rather keep my little pooch and my high sex drive than lose it on VLC.

          So what's the theory behind this? Certain combinations of food cause bloating?

            Yeah, I guess that different foods digest at different rates, so the wrong combinations cause fermentation and putrification (or some such) and make you look fatter and have gas and compromised digestion (energy sucking)

              What are the distinctions between these fiber acid & acid juice/fruits? Is that like dairy + oranges vs. dairy + OJ?

                What's the evidence base for food combining? It doesn't seem particularly believable unless you were eating massive amounts of food which could make the digestive process inefficient

                Meat+fruit as a 'no' sounds a bit suspicious considering that stuff like pork and apple sauce, moussaka (meat and tomato) are examples of common meat + fruit combinations.

                  Well I wouldn't say that by saying 'no' he's saying 'do not do it at all'. Just that this combination might be more prone to causing bloating when eaten. And of course that will vary person-to-person but if you have noticed you're more sensitive to some foods than others (probably a mild allergy) then maybe food combining is something to look into. So those dishes you mentioned might just sit heavier with some people in comparison to others.

                  I think for most the max. amount of food combining we concern ourselves with is combining two things together to minimize the insulin response. If you have 'an iron gut' then food combining past that point is all for naught.

                    I prefer to eat massive amounts of food, both for satiety and to save time. Instead of having to cook again and again, I cook all or most of the day's food at once and eat it all. Much food can mean much bloat, so I tend to avoid some combos since I do bloat easily. If I'm craving something that won't combine well, I'll just eat it later, within my usual six-hour eating window.

                      That makes sense, thats what I do something.

                      But is bloating inherently bad, aside from the discomfort and large belly?

                        For me personally, to reach my ultimate goal of performing complex handstand/ arm balance transitions I have to have a hollow belly almost all the time. That is so that i can activate my core (pressing the diaphragm into ribs and pulling everything else in really hard- thats where the power comes from for handstand work). I have to be able to eat enough quantity to get my nutrition but I can't afford any excess bloating. If you're eating good combinations you can digest your food without really seeing it in your body. It's a specific tweak for my goals, other people who spend most of their day upright probably don't need to worry about it.

                        I need to get my belly like this without getting all starvy.



                        Most of the super advanced yogis like her are vegetarians/vegans/fruitarians and I find myself moving more in that direction (with a primal paleo twist of course!) because it does make the whole lower belly shrink in (not talking about fat, I mean gut swell)

                        I've not gotten to a point in my training where I'm ready to fine tune in this way, but I see it coming in later phases.
