I was reading the thread on diet drinks and someone mentioned milk and thier children.I used to do more about eating right and excercising but havent been latley.BUT............I've spent some time in the library years ago researching nutriton on my own and found that milk does not do a body good.
One of the best books I read was ''FIT FOR LIFE''.The authors last name was Diamond.and basically said that milk was toxic to the respiratory system.that we as young children loose enzymese it takes to digest milk especially cows milk.ask any respiratory therapist and they'll tell you that anyone in the hospital with bronchill(spelling) problems that they will take them off all dairy products.so since I read the book in 1990 I haven't been a mild drinker since.I do have an ocassional bowl of cereal or ice cream of course.
The book was one of the best I've read as he explains what just about every kind of food does in the body.and how we should properly combine our meals and eat certain things at certain times of the day.
for example........4am to 12pm.we should only eat fruit cause its nearly 100% pre digested so the body doesnt have to exert any energy for digesting and therefore the energy is targeted towards detoxification.then from about 12pm till 8pm porperly combined meals.meaning lean meats and vegatables together only.
do not eat fruit after a meal because it requires no digesting so therefore it sits and ferments on top of the other food while digesting and may cause indigestion.
no drinking while eating and if you do no more than 4 ounces of water.too much water can dilute your digestive enzymes which water is used to dilute some of the strongest acids there is.
DO NOT combine more than 2 concentrated foods at one time.anything that is not a fruit or a vegetable is a concentrated food.example.................. ..steak and potato's.
if you are having meat with your vegies do not combine it with another concentrated food.......rice,posta,potato,b read,nuts,etc.meat and vegies only.therfore proper digestion takes place in 2 to 4 hours instead of 8 to 12.
the body secretes 2 enzymes.one to digest a protien and one to digest a starch.if the 2 are secreted at the same time they nutralize each other so therforre no digestion or very little takes place.so the body keeps dumping more and exerting more energy to digest an improperly combined meal and now you feel like taking a nap!!
after 8pm nothing other than fruit and your are supposed to wait at leat 2 hrs after a meal to eat fruit.
the 3 cycles of the body are as follows
#1. the detox cycle.average occurance is from 4am to 12pm.
#2. the appropriation cycle.....from 12pm to 8pm
#3. the assimilaton cycle......from 8pm to 4pm.
the times are on average for everyone.
if you are going to eat anything other than a properly combined meal after 12pm like a piece of cake or some sort of snake it should be eatin alone.AND at least 2 hrs after a properly combined meal!!
our saliva is aklakinic and not acidic.our saliva and our teeth and our digestive system were not designed for tearing or digesting meat.mainly for fruits, nuts and vegetables.
now i still eat meat but i try only with vegetables and fill much better afterwards.the book tells you what sugar,alcahol,milk,meat,vegeta bles,chocolate,and just about everything else that we ingest does in our bodies.I've read other books by nutrisionist that pretty much say the same thing.
detoxing the body daily or at least monthly would probably keep most of us from ever getting sick or terminaly ill.
well thats my $.02 for the day.I must get back to work.wish i could say more
have a blessed day
