Food combining (also known as trophology) is a term for a nutritional approach that advocates specific combinations of foods as central to good health and weight loss (such as not mixing carbohydrate-rich foods and protein-rich foods in the same meal). One randomized controlled trial study of the efficacy of food-combining for weight loss has been reported in the peer-reviewed medical literature and found no evidence that it was any more effective than a "balanced" diet.
There are other supposed benefits of this nutritional approach. The full digestion of nutrients enabled by "food combining" is supposed to aid in prevention of certain chronic metabolic diseases. The Hay diet is one type of food combining diet.
Affects one in three adults
Affecting about 35 percent of all adults in the United States according to the CDC, metabolic syndrome contributes to weight gain, by causing a state of internal starvation called metabolic starvation. This in turn leads to increases hunger, sugar cravings and increased portions leading to overeating and weight gain.
Cause and effect misunderstood
Since we traditionally thought that the portion control (which in turn was attributed wrongly to poor will power)is the cause of weight gain, rather than the effect of this metabolic starvation, all our traditional ideas about cause and effect of obesity were not only wrong but lead to the “blame the victim” attitude when it comes to obesity.
