Today I had Dr. Michael McCall help me teach about upper digestive function and he targeted on something that I have forgot about for a while. When we mix carbohydrate rich foods (starches) with protein we cause a large disruption in stomach digestion.
This disruption leads to gastric esophageal reflux disease (G.E.R.D.). Our stomach focuses on digestion one type of food at once. When we mix the carbohydrates (Grains, Bread, Buns, Rice) and protein we can not digest completely and this leads to stomach problems and eventually GERD.
The American diet consists of proteins and starches mixed together = meat and potatoes, meat and buns, meat and bread, meat and rice, eggs and pancakes, eggs and bread.
Because of this a large part of the population has to take antacids, prilosec or other type of digestive medications.
Eat protein and vegetables. If you eat carbs don’t mix them with proteins, eat them on their own. Although I don’t recommend eating grains, bread, pasta, potatoes, crackers, cookies, cereals, etc…
