1. Why do not I lose weight on a separate meal?
Beautiful theory: proteins and carbohydrates are eaten separately, as only proteins are digested in the acidic environment of the stomach, and carbohydrates remain rotting there. So you need to separate them in order to learn in the alkaline environment of the small intestine. In fact, the authors of these diets are probably not very familiar with the anatomy! First, at such a concentration of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, the process of rot is impossible. Second, there is a duodenum between the stomach and the small intestine, where the full digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates is performed. And thirdly, the legumes, for example, contain all three components. Individual digestion simply does not exist. But most importantly, different enzymes are released to digest proteins and carbohydrates, if you eat separately, the enzyme system that is not used, weakens and loses its working capacity. That is why people who eat so long can get digestive problems instead of covenant numbers on the rock.
