Food Combining Rules for Weight loss

April 21, 2015 2 min read

What is food combining? Pairing foods based on what mechanisms are need to properly digest the nutrients, optimizing digestive energy consumption and waste production. It is essentially how to eat to cause the least amount of stress on your body as possible. You can think of it like retrofitting your old house with new eco-friendly appliances, windows and plumbing which reduces your utilities bill each month.

Poor food combinations:

  • Leave the body feeling heavy and sluggish
  • Stressful for the body and makes it work harder than it needs to
  • Poorly digested foods are a main contributor of toxins to the body
  • Okay once and a while but not something you want to put your body through 3-5 times a day.
   

Common Hard to Digest Food CombinationsCCGEA311_Pizza-Pizzas_s4x3

  • Pizza
  • Pasta with Meat Sauce and Cheese
  • Sushi
  • Yogurt Parfaits with Granola and Fruit
  • Meat and Cheese Sandwiches
  • Eggs and Toast
  • Meat and Rice
  • Fruit after a meal
   

Good Food Combinations

  • Prevents grazing all day
  • Makes you less likely to overeat
  • Prevents feeling bloated and gassy after a meal
  • Is easier on digestive track, the liver and body as a whole
  • Leaves you with more energy to heal, detox and get on with your day.
  • Will help your body to come back into balance and maintain a healthy body weight.
  • When it comes to a meal, the less different food groups the better! Keep it simple!
   

Easy to Digest Food Combinations:

  • Meat/ Fish/ Eggs and Veggies
  • Spiced Oatmeal with dried fruit
  • Beans and Rice/ Grains
  • Quinoa and veggies
  • Soups such as bone broth with a little well cooked meat and veggies or Blended Vegetables
  • Red Lentil and Vegetable Soup with Millet Bread
  • Veggie Stir-fry or salad with Hemp Seeds and Avocado
  • Greens Salad with pomegranate seeds
    Take away message: -Animal proteins don’t mix with starches like bread, pasta and potatoes but they do mix with good fats and green veggies. -Fruit should be eaten alone, on an empty stomach and NOT for dessert -Dairy (especially cheese) does not digest will with anything. Homework: Practice proper food combining for a month and see how you feel!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
