What is the Paleo crew's stance on food combining? I have heard that digestion occurs in layers(on the basis of its time of consumption, nutrient/anti-nutrient composition, viscosity, etc.) and this seems to be 'borne' out in personal empirical studies. For practical purposes would it be advisable to keep the carb-rich food sources well seperated from the protein and fat sources? Would it be feasible to consume a solid food protein/fat meal 1/2 hour post carbs after a workout? Advice would be nice...

I'm not sure that 1/2 hour is "well-separated" in terms of digestion. But more basically, this strikes me -- IMHO -- as one of those instances of greatly overthinking/over-complicating something that should be simple: eat natural, whole, unprocessed food. If paleo meant scrutinizing the "layering" of my digestion, I wouldn't bother. But that is just my view.
