We take lupins, for example: are very valuable crops, lend themselves to many recipes, and these are their nutritional properties for 100 grams of product: 40.38 grams of carbohydrates, 36.17 grams of protein, 9.74 grams fat and 371 kcal.
Or the dough: 100 grams of pasta instead contain about 13 grams of protein and 70 carbohydrates. This premise is only made to understand how proteins and carbohydrates are simultaneously present in the same food.
We will remember, analyzing the pros and cons power according to the food combining diet.
Pros And Cons Of Diet Dissociated
Diet dissociated: The nutritional rules,
The theory that underlies the dissociated diet is that digestion of different chemical processes involves different foods: the digestion of carbohydrates takes place in a basic environment, that of the protein in an acidic environment, and can not take place at the same time; Where it happens simultaneously, it gives rise to gastric and intestinal difficulties.
Intuition was Dr. Hay, US, in 1911, that he experienced firsthand to heal from a kidney disease.
Summarized in a simple table of the main rules:
- They must spend at least 4-5 hours between dissociated meal and the next
- We must not associate in the same meal of different type protein: no to meat and cheese together
- Do not associate the same meal even different carbohydrates: no to bread and pasta or potatoes
- Give priority to whole grains
- Consuming generous portions of fruits and vegetables, detoxifying
- Eat fruit between meals and carbohydrates in the first part of the day (by afternoon)
- The standard meal consists of a main dish with vegetables.
Below is an example of a table of combinations allowed and prohibited in dissociated:
- Basic food in digestion (alkaline), examples: bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, cakes, honey, chocolate, legumes, bananas, chestnuts, dried fruit, cabbage. They can not consume with their food the acid group.
- Food in acid digestion according Hay – I do not consume absolutely with those seen above -: meat (white and red, sausages and meats), milk and dairy products (including yogurt), fruit (apples, pears, apricots, rules, peaches, strawberries , kiwi).
Dissociated diet: a sample weekly menu
Given the strict combinations to comply dissociated feeding scheme, the menus have a limited variability to the different varieties of cereals (bread, pasta or potatoes, different cereals) and protein alternatives to choose from meat, fish, eggs.
A weekly menu “dissociated” so provide for the weekly alternation of these proposals:
Breakfast choice between:
- A glass of skim milk or lactose-free, with cereals
- A low-fat yogurt and a barley coffee
- One zero fat greek yogurt and barley coffee
Snacks (morning and afternoon) to be chosen from:
- an orange juice
- a grapefruit juice
- a fruit to taste
- a centrifuged vegetable
Alternatives for lunch:
- 80 grams of pasta and a salad
- 80 grams of rice with grilled vegetable side dish
- a vegetable soup with potatoes and a serving of vegetables to taste.
Alternatives for dinner:
- 150 grams of chicken with a salad
- a portion (150-200 g) fish with a side of grilled vegetables;
- a portion (150-200 g) of eggs, with a side of vegetables to taste;
- 50 gram of sausages with vegetables to taste
Dissociated diet as a weight loss regime: does it work?
The dissociated diet is born with healthy purposes, it works primarily for detoxifying and slimming not: if you want to use the power dissociated as a weight loss regime, you must hold the portions, according to the example of the weekly menu seen above, always combining a physical activity appropriate. Otherwise it “works.”
Dissociated diet: The pros
In a short summary table we list the pros, power benefits based on food combining diet.
The dissociated diet works well because:
- It is rich in fresh fruit
- It is rich in vegetables
- Prefers whole grains
- Prohibits the consumption of refined sugars and starches
- It reduces the consumption of packaged foods, processed
- It improves digestion in convalescence and in case of gastric problems
the cons If you remember the introduction on lupins and paste a few lines ago, you will find that combining diet “pure” is impractical, because foods made only from carbohydrates or just from protein are almost nonexistent.
Here are some of the other “against” for the feeding according to the dissociated diet:
It is a very restrictive diet, it may be too difficult to sustain in the long term;
- If sustained for long periods with small portions, too slow your metabolism: When shooting a normal diet, you will risk getting fat faster.
- An excess or imbalance of protein meals sun threatens to overload the liver and kidneys.
- An excess or imbalance of carbohydrate meals only threatens an excessive glycemic index upward.
