Are we what we eat?

Food we eat has a great impact on our health and the way we look. To be in good shape scientists suggest that we should not mix slow and fast-digesting food.

Slow-digesting food gives us more balanced energy . However, in case we eat only this kind of food our digestive system works very hard and the stomach is overloaded. If we eat only fast-digesting food we'll notice that we have more snacks and larger portions. This food is a source of quick energy. Consider this to balance your diet.

At 6'2" and 210 lbs, I think my intake of candy and beer must digest quickly and turn into cellulose immediately.

Interesting information. I eat fruits alone and only between meals. I do love my steak with potatoes and veggies. Calories are calories and need to be reduced unless they are coming from water which has none. Water is the best medicine ever. I drink lemon tainted water 8 glasses/day at room temperature.

I'm not sure what difference it makes?? We eat potatoes with our steak and it keeps us feeling full for several hours, which I think is a good thing.

That means that if one were to mix certain foods, for example meat with rice and some salad it would take a long time for the stomach to digest it!!!

Most important is nutrients should be absorbed so it can be utilized by body. Meat and nuts are protein takes 3-4 hours to digest.
