Separate food was one of the fashionable diets some time ago. Since then, a considerable number of people have remained adherents of this system, these are those to whom it helped to lose weight, maintain a normal weight, be healthy and establish digestion.Content:
Separate food – diet, which is recommended to adhere to entire life, here not need to starve, considered calories, not banned no amount products, not need to to unsubscribe from this dinner you just need to organize it differently.
Ban on the combination of animal proteins with starchy first, the most important rule of food combining.
I. e. meat (or fish) eat without the usual starchy garnish, complete with a salad of fresh vegetables.
Examples of incompatible products:
- fish and potatoes or rice,
- meat and pasta,
- chicken and potatoes,
- sausage sandwich,
- breaded fish,
- flour based sauces to meat.
Due to this, separate nutrition "makes life easier" gastrointestinal tract's.
Still academician I. P. Pavlov found out that different enzymes are allocated for processing of various food.
- Proteins are cleaved acidic environment of the stomach, carbohydrates need an alkaline environment.
- in Addition, it takes longer to break down the protein. Therefore, protein foods may not be fully absorbed if they come with carbohydrates.
When protein and carbohydrate food enter the stomach together, part of the beneficial substances can not be absorbed, which leads to slagging, to the deposition of extra pounds.
Since food from the same group – compatible products are easier for the body to digest, there is no fermentation process, rotting in the intestine, reduces the risk of constipation.
The Body is self-cleaning, without additional methods cleansing the body.
Main product groups:
- Proteins – meat, fish, nuts, eggs, legumes, soy.
- Carbohydrates – sweet fruits, sugar, flour products, cereals, potatoes.
- Fats – all vegetable and animal fats, including fatty dairy products.
Separately it is recommended to eat food from the first, second group, from the neutral group can be used together with the first two.
This is the main principle, detailed rules are collected in the table compatibilities.
Separate food, product compatibility table
In order to properly understand the process of separate nutrition for weight loss, consider the compatibility table (good, acceptable or bad) is indicated by the color at the intersection of the corresponding column and row.

Meat, bird, fish must be lean. During processing it is necessary to remove all external fat. For meat, a combination of green non-starchy vegetables is beneficial, this combination neutralizes the harmful properties of animal proteins, helps them digest, remove excess cholesterol from the blood.
The combination of animal proteins with alcohol is not allowed, because alcohol precipitates the enzyme pepsin, necessary for the digestion of animal proteins.
Legumes – beans, beans, soybeans, peas, lentils, etc. As starches, they are well combined with fats, especially easy to digest – vegetable oil, sour cream, and as a source of vegetable protein – greens, starchy vegetables.
Vegetable oil – useful when consumed unrefined.
Sugar, jams, syrups, confectionery. Sugar should be avoided. All sugars inhibit the secretion of gastric juice. If sweets are eaten with other food, then lingering in the stomach for a long time, they cause fermentation in it. Sour belching, heartburn – the results of this process.
Honey excluded from the category of sugars, because honey – a product already processed by the digestive apparatus of bees, absorbed into the blood 20 minutes after administration, it does not load the liver.
Bread, cereals, potatoes. Pure starch is extremely difficult to digest. Bread is considered a separate meal (e.g. with butter) and not a mandatory addition to every food. However, bread made from unrefined, whole grains can be eaten with any salad.
Fruits are sour, tomatoes. Sour fruits: oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, pineapples, pomegranates, lemons, cranberries, sour taste: apples, pears, plums, apricots, grapes. Tomatoes stand out from all vegetables high in acids – lemon, Apple, sorrel.
Polyessye fruits: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, strawberries, sweet taste: apples, cherries, plums, grapes, apricots, peaches.
sweet Fruits, dried fruits. Acceptable combination of milk and nuts nebolshimi portions, because it's hard for digestion. But better fruits(sour and sweet) do not mix, because they are absorbed in the intestine. You need to eat them at least 15 - 20 minutes before eating. Particularly strict this rule must be in respect of watermelons, cantaloupes.
Vegetables green, non-starchy: tops of all edible plants (greens parsley, dill, celery, radish tops, beets), salad, wild "table" herbs, cabbage, green, onions, garlic, cucumbers, eggplant, bell peppers, green peas. Radishes, rutabaga, radish, turnip is "polynomiality" vegetables, which combinations rather join green, non-starchy.
Starchy vegetables: beets, carrots, horseradish, parsley roots, celery, pumpkin, zucchini, squash, cauliflower. The combination of these vegetables with sugar causes strong fermentation, other combinations are good, or acceptable.
Milk – separate food, not drink. Getting into the stomach, milk should curdle under the influence of acidic juices. If there is other food in the stomach, then the particles of milk envelop it, isolating it from the gastric juice, the digestion process is delayed.
Cheese, cheese. the Most acceptable cheeses are young cheeses of the home type, i.e. something between cottage cheese, cheese. Processed cheese is an unnatural product, significantly processed. Brynza is a useful protein product that requires, however, soaking with cold water from excessive salt.
Eggs: their combination with green, non-starchy vegetables neutralizes the harm from high cholesterol in the yolk.
Nuts contains easily digestible vegetable fats.
Sample separate power menu
Nutritionists cite option separate power menu:
- Breakfast: fruits, cottage cheese, bread sandwich with bran, cheese or butter.
- Lunch: protein food, meat or fish, on garnish – Portia vegetable salad (without potatoes), vegetable soup.
- Dinner: carbohydrates – macaroni and cheese, potatoes, sweet fruit
