Dear Heids
Seeing that all foods, except pure sugar, pure lard and pure oil, are actually combinations of fats, carbs and proteins and our bodies are equipped to digest them, I have never understood the logic of trying to separate foods into groups and to eat mainly carbs at one meal and mainly proteins at another meal. You can certain mix carbs and proteins, carbs and fats and carbs, fats and proteins.
