Certain foods, when eaten together, take two to three times as long to digest as other food combinations. For example, an avocado on a piece of toast (a good quick exit combination) requires only three to four hours in the stomach, whereas that same piece of toast combined with an egg requires upward of eight hours in the stomach and that’s just the stomach, not the entire digestive tract (clearly, a slow exit combination). After enjoying a quick exit combination, your body can quickly get back to work strengthening and rejuvenating itself, whereas a slow exit combination will draw all your energy to your stomach for hours on end and leave you feeling less vibrant.
What happens over a lifetime of mixing slow exit foods in slow exit combinations? Think of eight-hour food combinations being ingested three times a day. A major backlog develops, turning a healthy, clean digestive tract and healthy cells into a veritable cesspool where bacteria can thrive and the whole of the eliminative channels (liver, skin, kidneys, colon, spleen) slows down. As you may have guessed, this leads straight to constipation, acne, asthma, arthritis, and more. Poor digestion and the excess waste matter that is connected to it is at the root of everything from minor complaints such as heartburn and gas to more serious physical issues like thyroid disorders and circurlation problems. And since these ailments are creating a further drain on your body’s energy supply, you are being robbed of your youthfulness and beauty with every ill-combined meal you eat.
