Hi all, cool article here. It basically outlines what foods go best together, what foods don't and overall some solid information on how to improve gut health. Enjoy!

Hello Backtobasics95. This is a well known and proven method for a number of ills, after all the gut is considered to be the second brain controlling a lot of our functions. Hippocrates said, "All disease begins in the gut".

I was pleased to see the advice given to avoid pasteurised and homogenised milk at the end. There is an article that summarises the principles at healthscams.org.uk/food-com...

A lot of people could benefit from this. Tibbly

I think the main thing is sticking to the major rules. Never combine proteins with starches, eat fruit on an empty stomach, eat non-starchy veggies with high protein foods etc. Just recently I started eating fruit for breakfast. Oranges, strawberries, bananas, grapes and kiwi fruit. It is a more expensive breakfast than my oats and chia seeds, but far out I'm feeling great lately.

I agree with you on that, because today I ate like 6 different fruits and that lasted me three hours before feeling hungry again. As for the Fructose, there are a gazillion fruits out there. Some are high in Fructose, some are low. I go to the farmers markets and look for myself to see what's there. I think I may start eating chia pudding for breakfast. That has chia seeds, high calcium milk, whatever fruits you want, healthy fats in the form of nuts and whatever sweeteners. Please don't say the word bacon, I am too tired to eat and you are making my mouth water😂😂😂

Haha yeah I feel ya. Don't worry about it too much, just do some research and design some meals that stick to most of the rules. Eventually you get decent at it and for most people that's enough
