I have been reading and following Raymond Francis' guidelines on food combining...
This guy (BTW) was the one who became my raw tipping point.
I have his book (it's called 'Never be Sick Again'), but you can also read it online, thanks to Google.
His guidelines are a bit more stringent than I have heard elsewhere.
- Melons always on their own.
- Sweet fruit always on their own (bananas, dates, grapes, etc)
- Acid fruit always alone (apples, berries, pears, etc), mix with protein because of the acid.
- then the usual, starch/protein etc with veggies (yadi yada) on their own
My Q is this - anyone else following this? I have found that I feel better following these guidelines more than doing things like mixing sweet and acid fruit.
However, the organic bars (e.g. Purebar, Rawvolution, etc) - seem to be shamelessly flouting these rules...
Am I correct - or am I just in need of enlightenment?
