Marilu Henner: Seven Day Energy Makeover
Marilu Henner said she has perfected a plan to help you make over your energy in just seven days and she is ready to share it with Dr. Oz and his viewers and we are sharing it with you! Marilu said there is nothing tricky or fancy about her plan because it is simply about eating every day. She loves to eat, but she said it is all about food combining, which is something she learned about back in 1979 when she read a book on the subject that was written in the 1930’s! Dr. Oz said food combining is a very old idea that many people are not even aware of, but it could be the solution to boosting your energy and helping you on your way to a healthier life!
Dr Oz: Food Combination Chart
Marilu Henner said that the traditional American diet is focused on combining proteins and starches, but she said to look at foods in three different categories: starches, proteins and fruits. Those foods should not be eaten together, or combined, unless you have a connector. For example, if you want to eat a dish that includes protein and starch together, you need to make sure you include a legume because that will help with the digestion of the other foods. Otherwise you will feel miserable and bloated, wishing you could take a nap. Marilu said the hardest thing we do is digest our food. It requires a lot of energy, but proper food combining will ease this process and leave us with more energy for the other things in life! Marilu shared a visual chart that will help you better understand food combining.
