How to Begin with a the Food Combining Diet (FCD)
The cardinal rule: Do not combine proteins with carbohydrates in the same meal! In other words, each food belongs to a food group (proteins, carbohydrates, neutral foods) that need to be kept separate. For assistance check out our alphabetical food index (click here).
We recommend that you start slowly. Practice adhering to the FCD principles at one meal a day. Notice the difference in how you feel after that meal. Once you feel confident your body accepts the change, increase the frequency of FCD meals to more than one meal a day twice a week, then three times a week, and so on. Slowly increase until you feel comfortable enjoying FCD meals seven days a week.
Once you all your daily meals are FDC meals, you can lose weight until your body is at it’s balanced level.
