Hi, my name is Stella Metsovas, and today we’re going to be talking about combining carbohydrates and proteins. Now your digestive system is super important to your overall health and combining the right carbohydrates and proteins are essential to your health. Now if you are eating fresh, whole, nutrient rich foods you really don’t need to worry too much about food combining. What you have to worry about is your serving sizes. You don’t want to overdo too much of a carbohydrate or a protein for that matter. Now I always like to take the palm of your hand and look at a serving size from that perspective. So let’s say you are sedentary all day. Look at the palm of your hand and that should be about one serving. Now if you are semi active, take the palm of your hand and add another half to that. So that would be one and a half servings. Now if you are really active and this is where you need to make sure you are having the right combination of proteins and carbohydrates, you could go onto Mayoclinic.com. You could go onto so many websites that are known to calculate the amount of protein and carbohydrates you need. Remember, don’t get caught up in the stressors of how you should combine protein and carbohydrates. If you have healthy clean sources, that’s all that matters.
