What Is The Food Combination Diet?

by / 18 Comments / 2558 View / July 10, 2012

How can I eat a healthy and balanced diet and lose weight at the same time, while avoiding the dreaded yo-yo effect? The answer maybe is Food Combining.

Food Combining or Food Combination Diet is based on the principle of separating specific foods and eating them at certain meals for good metabolism and proper digestion.



Have you ever tried this way or eating? Know someone that has? Would you consider trying it for a few weeks just to see what happens?

Please let me know in the comment box below the video. And as always, feel free to share with all of your friends all over the internet!

  1. Jovanka – loved this video (your accent is awesome) learned a lot about what foods take the longest to digest and which should be eaten together. I made my husband watch it too, he thought it was great. We will be trying out some of your suggestions very soon!

    • Oh I’m so glad you’re getting the hubby all excited about it. We need to take care of our guys too! Thanks for the comment.

  2. Hi Jovanka,

    fantastic presentation, I iwll try it definitelly, however it is not so easy 🙂
    So fruits goes with nothing at all? what about soja milk?
    Thanks and congratulations!

    • Thanks! It is a bit tricky at first but you can start slow and ease your way into it. Yes, eating fruit early in the day is probably the best way to insure that it is eaten alone. Soy milk can be combined with grains and starches as well as protein. Thanksfor the comment!

  3. please give me breakfast, lunch & dinner menus as far as food combining is concerned. I need to know what foods should be eaten with other foods so that digestion can occur. I have problems with constipation & need help with this problem. you also said to take magnesium for constipation. what is the best magnesium to take & dosage.

    many thanks,
