Our expert says:
The theory that we should not 'mix' our foods pops up regularly, but it is not based on scientific proof. Human beings are omnivores which means we can eat proteins, carbs and fats and our digestive tract is designed to digest all 3 of these macronutrients at the same time. In addition all foods except oils, sugar, and lard, contain a mixture of the 3 macronutrients, so it is practically impossible to separate them in a given meal. I believe that your friend has lost weight because she is giving attention to what she is eating and not because she is eating mainly protein at one meal and mainly carbs at another. To lose weight you need to reduce your energy intake and increase your energy output.
