Food-combining diets are based on the belief that different food types are digested in different ways and should not be eaten together; weight loss results from correct combining of food types.
Fit For Life is another diet claiming that combining food in certain ways improves digestive processes and thereby leads to successful weight loss.
The Hay Diet was introduced in the 1930s by Dr William Hay, who believed that eliminating refined foods from the diet and avoiding eating protein and starch at the same meal allows the body to heal itself. Loss of excess weight is an additional benefit.
According to the author of this diet, which claims to be a 35-day lifestyle eating plan rather than a diet, the key to losing weight and feeling healthy is to improve digestion by combining fats, proteins, and carbohydrates correctly.
Suzanne Somers, the author of this diet plan, incorporates ways to splurge and enjoy foods into her own version of a food-combining programme.
