Our expert says:
Because human beings are omnivores (we eat all types of food, not just protein like carnivores or plants like herbivores) our digestive system is designed to digest both carbohydrates and protein at the same time. I can, therefore, also not understand where this idea that eating carbs and proteins together will cause weight gain or be otherwise detrimental. Adding large quantities of fats (butter, margarine, cream, mayonnaise, fatty salad dressings, etc) to carbs can cause weight gain and should be avoided.
