In Your Ear!

Got my hopes up…

I just read “Reader News” regarding previously published thoughts on P+C and P+F from JB and me.

Although it’s a frequent reminder from us both, it is worth restating that both approaches are tweaks to already-established whole food habits. The truth is, just doubling fruit and vegetable intake (while maintaining frequent lean meats and dairy for protein) goes a VERY long way toward fixing most “dieting” (for body comp) difficulties.

I do have to add this, however: I never liked the term “food combining” as far as macronutrients are concerned (as opposed to say, “protein combininig” for a vegetarian which is indeed preferable).
Can we really say that a combined C+F meal is always undesirable for body comp purposes? Of course not. Swiping some natural peanut butter on an apple is far superior nutritionally to say, eating a danish or doughnut!

Remember, exploring a wide variety of research in an organized way is sometimes meant mostly as an educational technique. Awareness itself is a hugely important factor in changing behaviors. Although T-mag is justifiably known for exploring the bleeding edge of training and sports nutrition, remember that just as “theoretical physics” holds legitimate value, so to does “theoretical physiology” have real worth. Common sense in self-application is helpful.


Another unbelievable set of articles. Thanks a ton guys. Nobody does it like you guys.
