HEALTHFUL LIVING

Chapter 18 – Diet

Food Combinations

#375. I advise the people to give up sweet puddings or custards made with eggs and milk and sugar, and to eat the best home-made bread, both graham and white, with dried or green fruits, and let that be the only course for one meal; then let the next meal be of nicely prepared vegetables.—Unpublished Testimonies, October 29, 1894. {HL 82.6}

#376. If we would preserve the best health, we should avoid eating vegetables and fruit at the same meal. If the stomach is feeble, there will be distress, and the brain will be confused, and unable to put forth mental effort. Have fruit at one meal and vegetables at the next.—The Youth’s Instructor, May 31, 1894. {HL 83.1}

#377. We advise you to change your habits of living; but while you do this, we caution you to move understandingly. I am acquainted with families who have changed from a meat diet to one that is impoverished. Their food is so poorly prepared that the stomach loathes it…. Here is one reason why some have not been successful in their efforts to simplify their food.—Testimonies for the Church 2:63. {HL 83.2}

#378. Large quantities of milk and sugar eaten together are injurious.—Testimonies for the Church 2:369. {HL 83.3}

#379. Some use milk and a large amount of sugar on mush, thinking that they are carrying out health reform. But the sugar and the milk combined are liable to cause fermentation in the stomach, and are thus harmful. The free use of sugar in any form tends to clog the system, and is not unfrequently a cause of disease.—Christian Temperance and Bible Hygiene, 57. {HL 83.4}

Homework:

  1. If you are not currently on a 2-meal/day plan, pick 3 days (between Wednesday and Saturday) to eat only 2 meals during the day, at least 5 hours apart, with no snacks between meals.
  2. Pick 1 day this week to fast completely from food (preferably Tuesday). You can use the Lemon Cleanse solution (minus the cayenne pepper) in the place of your meals.
  3. Log your meals (“as is”) into Cronometer (websiteiOSAndroid), preferably with timestamped notes.
  4. Manually record your health stats, or take daily screenshots from the following sections in your fitness watch app:
    a) heart rate
    b) activity (calories burned)
    c) sleep patterns
  5. Continue to tweak your new schedule to identify any areas where there may be room for improvement :-)
