Easy Food Combining Chart

This food combining chart will give you a pretty clear idea of how to mix your foods without compromising your digestion.

Simply put, whenever you mix different kinds of foods your digestion will be less than ideal. Many combinations, however, will affect you little or not at all.

This chart lays out the basic rules for working with your system's needs so you can cut down on gas, stomach aches, acid reflux and the other digestive problems.

You can download the food combining chart here.

Food Combining Chart Final

These are, of course, rules that can be bent, as is proven everyday by the people who eat the standard American diet without issue. This makes the rules no less correct; it makes the SAD a testament to the body's ability to adapt to abuse.

You may find some of these rules don't apply to you concretely in all circumstances. For instance, melons should generally be eaten by themselves. I know from experience that combining cantaloupe with anything else makes my stomach feel upset. On the other hand, I've been able to combine watermelons with other high-water foods like tomato without a problem.

These hint at the many subtities and nuances of food combining as well as the range of individual preferences and digestie abiliites.

Those with compromised digestive health may find these combinations too liberal, while those with strong digestion may be able to deviate with little effect.

Where do these rules come from?

This chart is my attempt to put into visual form the ideas natural hygenists have been teaching for decades. I worked from the teachings of  Dr. Herbert Shelton, such as those found in "Food Combining Made Easy."

I've also worked in my own experience and insights from modern raw food proponents such as Dr. Douglas Graham.

Hope this helps you guys out.
