The Combining Diet
FOOD COMBINING - SOMETIMES KNOWN AS THE HAY DIET
There are many misconceptions and lots of pseudoscientific tosh surrounding this diet. It is not the panacea for all ills, nor is it “the only way to eat to be healthy”. It is though a way of eating which can be highly beneficial for people suffering from digestive problems. Try it for a couple of weeks and see if it suits you - the added bonus is that anyone who is overweight will certainly lose a few pounds.
The only rule that matters is not combining starch foods and protein foods in the same meal. For example, no fish (protein) and chips (starch), no meat (protein) and potatoes (starch), no cheese (protein) and biscuits (starch). Allow three hours between each meal and if you want to snack choose from the neutral list. All foods in this group can be eaten with starch or protein.
Meat, Poultry, Game, Fish, Shellfish, Eggs, Cheese
All fruits except those in the starch group
Peanuts, Soya beans, Tofu
Milk, Yogurt, All Cheese except cream cheese and ricotta
Wine and Cider
Potatoes, Yams, Sweetcorn
Bread, Flour, Oats, Wheat, Barley, Rice, Millett, Rye, Buckwheat, Pasta
Very sweet fruits like ripe Pears, Bananas, Papaya, Mango and very sweet Grapes
All vegetables except for those in the starch group
All nuts except peanuts
Butter, Cream, Cream Cheese, Ricotta cheese, Egg yolk
Yogurt and Milk have a very low protein content so can be used in tiny amounts with starchy foods

All seeds and sprouted seeds
Herbs, Spices, Raisins, Sultanas, Honey and Maple Syrup
