Don Lemmon's Know How Exercise Nutrition Truth

by Don Lemmon

Let me tell you how things should have always been and need to always always be! You HAVE to learn to combine/mix/separate your foods correctly meal per meal to get anywhere with yourself. The stomach has no means by which to separate poorly combined foods. The digestive processes of protein, carbohydrate and fat food groups is so different that digestion cannot occur efficiently if the wrong food groups are in the stomach at the same time. For instance, the enzymes that act upon carbohydrates are not the ones that act upon proteins and fats. It isn't a bucket of acid like you think it is down there! The body wasn't designed to release all the different fluids needed to breakdown all the different types of foods at once! Come to respect digestive enzymes and their limitations. Once you do, as I have witnessed countless times before, you will achieve that dream physique in a fraction of the time and see not only food allergies almost completely disappear but health become restored. Why? Because you're finally allowing yourself to receive nourishment from properly digested meals and foods.

Give it a little time though. Allow all those years of dietary abuse to be reversed. (Divide your age by 2 and that is how many days it should take you to adjust; about a day for every two years you have been alive.) Your body given a chance, will wake up, and BOOM! First, you will begin to feel 'light' all of a sudden and next, fat will have began vanishing right before your very eyes! AND YOU PROBABLY WON'T EVEN BE FOLLOWING THE PROGRAM TO THE NOTE! (But try.)

Food Separating

That means, I expect you to make some mistakes! But that is no excuse! Pay close attention! Improperly mixed foods sit in your digestive tract and spoil. They go undigested. You receive little or none of the nutrients you are needing and expecting to get that are in those foods this way. Not only is that a waste but the spoiling process creates toxins and other poisons that can make you sick. That is why you should try not to let more than 2 1/2 hours go between feedings all day, every day. (Assuming it takes 1/2 hour to finish each meal, and scheduling meals 3 hours apart.) In case something doesn't get efficiently digested, then that last meal can be pushed through your digestive tract by another incoming meal. Think of the food in your stomach as a clog in a drain. Something must be put on top of that food to shove it through by applying enough pressure behind it that moves it down and out your drainage (digestive) system.

You'll always be 'clogged' or 'backed up' unless this process is taken into consideration meal after meal. Skipping feedings is then, whether you believe it or not, worse for you than over eating. Skipping a meal may mean allowing things in your gut to rot. Therefore, eating only breakfast, lunch and dinner as main meals without snacking barely nourishes you (especially since you have been taught to cram all four food groups into them, not providing the proper atmosphere for digestion anyhow, and nothing is put on top of them soon enough to push the food through before it rots). Four meals a day maintains your metabolism (because it pushes one of the three rotted meals stuck in your gut out); but five meals speeds and six meals a day optimizes your digestive system. Another reason your body was designed to break down only individual food types at a time is the same as the reason why multiple feedings are necesary; because the body is unable to absorb 100% of anything all in one sitting and it takes complete digestion to recieve anything at all from something.

You need to be able to receive your nourishment and that is unfortunately only possible in bits and pieces that you can handle, not from handfuls of pills or buffet style meals, but from frequent, properly mixed meals. Properly combine your foods if for only this one last reason (not just to remain healthy, but) to LIVE LONGER and you will watch all of your vain needs be met at the same time. Once you determined how to fit all six feedings a day into your schedule (or at least five), remember to also alternate between two or three carbohydrate and three protein/fat meals. Two of your meals are actually snacks, not full meals. Try cottage cheese, or peanut butter (no sugar added) on celery as a snack or fruit a nd yogurt or BALANCE nutrition BARS if you'd like that instead. (I know, there is protein AND fat WITH carbs in these bars. It's OK. The ratio of those nutrients all coming from the same food source at such a calorie level actually benefits you.) If you can't do three snacks and have time for only five feedings, plan either breakfast and lunch OR both snacks being the carb meals. You should never have two carbohydrate feedings in a row. That sets off a trigger response for your body to burn muscle tissue and store fat, where as the opposite, two fat/protein meals in a row, is optimal and gets you burning fat instead but there has to be twice the calories in fat there are from protein. Sounds good, but it's confusing because you haven't heard this before? Beats me why not. But what I have taught you thus far should have explained to most of you why what you do may work and why what some of you are doing cannot. Then again, I know some are still panicking because it looks as though I suggest one of those higher fat diets or something completely off the wall like that.

Don't worry about the fat you eat or how different this program appears to be. You are now going to be eating those taboo foods in conjunction with one another in a total diet that allows you to burn both dietary and stored bodily calories as opposed to continuing to store them as excess body fat. I also realize a small percentage of you think and feel you will not succeed unless you eat a lower fat diet. You poor souls have been so abused! We have one group going low-fat and the other screaming high fat! There is a group somewhere in the middle though too talking about a moderate carbohydrate intake. You've all been misled! It seems like everybody around here is either giving or taking the wrong advice. And who came up with all this stuff? I dunno! But you are all actually somewhat correct believe it or not. (I will not suggest you know why though.)

The problem here is this; too many people are pretending they have discovered something by boldly promoting eating plans they wouldn't have looked twice at just a short while ago. They think their 'new' fad system is so unique at the moment because it seemed to have worked for a few weeks on someone, somewhere, somehow. It's really confusing because these diets either exceed 30% of the calories in fat when not too long ago the same authors were sticking to their guns and saying go low fat OR there are diets professing to increase your dietary fat intake by simply cutting your carbohydrates in half being all the rage. Some other clown over there is still eating lowfat all the time or touting their battles of the bulge, it's rough. (What I mean is, most of those who push any of these programs nowadays did not achieve what they have by practicing what they currently preach and others refuse to quit pushing programs that never worked to begin with. I will not discuss the use of drugs here by the way.)

Pharmaceuticals are definitely not a part of a truly successful program either, people. Some of the people you see promoting 'their' diets on TV had 'work' done too to look good for their appearances ya know! Yeah, yeah, you thought the people in the magazines or on TV that have been rammed down your throats for so long and are in pretty decent physical condition (or not) are the prophets of our times. They are actually borderline clueless. So let's progress things one, or two steps ahead. Heck, it may even be three. Who's right out of the bunch? Despite everything, they all are! Kinda. The closest were the ones who separated their proteins from starches. But they still ate too much fat with their carbs! You know, olive oil on pasta! Aargh! Some of what each of them say then IS true, but most IS either NOT true (unintentionally), stolen from someone else (intentionally), based on the results of only the author, a small group of people (such as only testing the program on a few college students or close friends who probably 'supplemented' as well), is only PART of the big picture, they dont know why or what part of it is working or it is coming from the tail end of a bandwagon somebody's just climbed on (thus, being stolen).

Let me put it this way. A program is only successful if it works with and not against the natural mechanisms of the human body for all different types of people ALL THE TIME. Doesn't reach serious roadblocks EVER. Continues to work CONTINUOUSLY. And stands the test of time. Most authors today haven't given their programs that much thought or attention. It doesn't matter how wonderful their marketing campaigns have been. Its obvious they didn't read the most easily accessible journals close enough before jumping the gun. They didn't put two and two together first (going into it only having one third or one half of the total picture figured out). No amount of arguing or promotion is going to get your digestive fluids to react any other way than they already do! Sorry! If you don't separate and properly combine your foods, the diet cannot work and they ARE WRONG. How could it be? These people haven't had as much practical one on one experience as they should have. Well, I did and I do. Do not get me wrong. Whatever program it was you were on last probably did work for awhile. Cut your calories back a bit and most all programs do work.

But I have a couple of questions to ask you. The questions a re 1) When will that diet begin to quit working for you? 2) Why did it suddenly fail? 3) Did it leave you with unattractive loose fitting skin? And 4) How do you get out of such a rut? You now know by alternating carbohydrate and fat/protein meals (which yes, somewhat lowers your overall intake of carbohydrates), you can work out the glitches of any program you have tried before. If you have been eating low-fat, add a few low carbohydrate meals to your daily schedule. If you have been ating low carbohydrate, add a couple low fat meals to your daily schedule. If you have been mixing proteins, fats and carbohydrates on a diet that leaves you eating in a zone of 30% proteins, 30% fats and 40% carbs, all you have to do is to place the carbs you eat in meals separate from the proteins and fats. It's pretty darn simple.
