1. Eat acids and starches at separate meals. Acids
neutralize the alkaline medium required for starch
digestion and the result is fermentation and
2. Eat protein foods and carbohydrate foods at
separate meals. Protein foods require an acid medium
3. Eat but one kind of protein food at a meal. (Do
not mix meats or proteins.)
4. Eat proteins and acid foods at separate meals.
The acids of acid foods inhibit the secretion of the
digestive acids required for protein digestion.
Undigested protein putrefies in bacterial
decomposition and produces some potent poisons.
(Certain fruit are acid fruits, vinegar is an acid.)
5. Eat fats and proteins at separate meals. Some
foods, especially nuts, are over 50% fat and require
hours for digestion.
6. Eat sugars (fruits and otherwise) and proteins at
7. Eat sugars (fruits) and starchy foods at separate
meals. Fruits undergo no digestion in the stomach
and are held up if eaten with foods that require
digestion in the stomach.
8. Eat melons alone. They combine with almost no
other food. (Melons are the perfect food and do not
require digestion in the stomach.)
9. Desert the desserts. Eaten on top of meals they
lie heavy on the stomach, requiring no digestion
there, and ferment. Bacteria turn them into alcohols
and vinegars and acetic acids. (1)
