Food combining myths

There is no scientific proof that the human body needs to separate out protein and carbohydrate foods at different meals because it cannot cope with digesting them together.

This idea of ‘food combining’ came originally from work at the end of the 1800’s by Dr William Hay and has been popularised through various food combining diet books published over the last ten years.

Humans, unlike cows, have one stomach and a medium-length gut which makes us omnivores and quite capable of handling a steak (protein and fat) and potatoes (carbohydrate), for example, at the same meal.
