    • All food can be happily digested together, I don’t think food combining theoy makes sense. We trigger the release of enzymes in our gut appropriate for the food we need to digest.

    • Once the gut settles down on a paleo diet, and digestion improves, one’s body starts producing more hydrochloric acid. And digestion gets better. It is then not necessary to practice proper food combining as do many vegetarians, vegans and raw foodies. Food combining may be helpful for those with impaired digestion. I found that once I made the switch from primarily raw vegan/vegetarian to paleo, my digestion improved by adding Betaine HCL with pepsin capsules. Within a few weeks, my body started producing enough HCL and I needed to reduce the amount of capsules taken per meal. Sometimes I even forget I need the capsules. I have much less bloating, gas, and other digestive upsets.

      Also, the enzymes present in raw food are different from those enzymes utilized by the body for digestion. It is good to include some amount of raw food into one’s diet, but our bodies do not utilize or produce plant enzymes for digestion. I notice that the enzyme capsules from an animal sources work so much better for me than the plant-sourced enzymes.
