CONSCIOUS COMBINING EXPLAINED: THE LOW-CAL EXPOSE: EGGS, SKINLESS CHICKEN BREAST, RAW VEGETABLES AND MELONS
Eggs. These are a damned if you do, damned if you don't item. The ingredient that makes eggs digestible, the lecithin, is in the yolk and is destroyed when you cook them. On the other hand, there is an ingredient in the egg white which when eaten raw destroys B vitamins. The latest craze is to eat only the cooked whites—well, whatever turns you on. I was always a yolk dunker.
Skinless Chicken Breast (and other denuded animal proteins). The skin contains essential nutrients. When you strip it away, you are adversely affecting the digestibility of the fowl. Besides, doesn't it taste better the way nature made it—with the skin on?
Raw Vegetables. Yes, they are low-calorie, but they are low-energy too. So why bother?
Melons. With the important exception of watermelon, which has marvelous enzymatic powers, most melons have no fiber and no digestive enzymes. They are not only hard to digest, but they are bloaters as well.
