(Editor's notes
Note1:
 raw animal proteins have much faster digestion times than the above times for cooked/heated animal proteins.

Note2: The digestion times given are under an
 ideal situation of eating only one food, chewing well, and having efficient digestion, as is the case e.g. after a fast. They are digestion times for optimally healthy persons, with good eating habits. The digestion times are to a large part derived from Dr. Gian-Cursio's and Dr. Bass' practices.
Digestion times are much longer on a conventional diet, and for persons with non-optimized digestive systems, or persons lacking in energy, and for meals with many ingredients put together haphazardly = not in the optimum sequential order
.)

FROM DR STANLEY 
..... In my opinion and experience as a nutritional consultant in Natural Hygiene (I began studying nutrition in 1936), sequential eating represents the most advanced approach to understanding proper food combining.
After testing and retesting the concept on myself thousands of times, as well as on others, including the experience of Dr. Cursio, his family, his patients, as well as other Hygienic doctors - Dr. John Mega, Dr. Marvin Telmar, Dr. Anthony Penepent, etc. 

FOOD COMBINING
Any quick digesting foods must wait till the slowest digesting foods leave the stomach before they can leave - a process which can take up to 6 or 8 hours. While waiting, the fruit, cooked and raw vegetables, and some of the starches undergo some decomposition and fermentation, producing gas, acid and even alcohol along with indigestion. .....

BASIC RULE - WATERY FOODS FIRST
Eat the most watery food first .....
Avoid drinking beverages or even water during or after meals
Chew your food as close to liquid form
My earlier post on sequential eating-   link here

Try it - feel the difference when you practice "sequential eating"
(eating in layers/ proper combination of foods).

  1. Very interesting info, Wan.
    I heard about drinking water before meal, and no drinking water after or in between meals are good for your diet. Or is it about getting a flatten stomach? :)

  2. Wow this is mind blowing. We Indians traditionally eat 3 meals where we have food from all the four groups i.e. carbohydrates, proteins, fats vitamins and minerals in the form of pulses, veggies and whole grains. This is all new to me.
    Must give it a try.

  29. Such procedures include dental bleaching, dental veneers,
    crowns, implants, shaping, and orthodontic treatment.
    Generally, placing a crown requires two visits to the dentist.
    Similarly, porcelain is also slightly translucent and so veneers made of porcelain very effective in appearance.
