Separate different foods at meal time?

I've heard that eating different foods at separate times is better.

For example, eat meat for one meal, veggies for another meal, etc.

Thoughts? Data?

you might want to search "food combining" on here, it's a topic that's come up before.

It sounds similar to sequential eating. I tend to use sequential eating and it has definitely improved my digestion.

I think that only applies to anything eaten with grains or legumes, there is a name for that diet but I can't think of it right now (in German it's "Trennkost"). One should never eat raw fruit with aforementioned cooked carbs, with cooked protein (meat) fruit is O.K. I don't remember the exact reasoning behind it either. In paleo terms I could imagine maybe combining starchy vegetables with raw fruit could cause digestive issues, but don't ask me why and how, it's just a general thing I remember. On the other hand protein, fat, and carbs from veggies go very well in one meal and support eachother's digestion and chemical reaction in the body. I'm sorry I can't give you any data, it's just things I remember reading here and there and acting by and can confirm that for example a starchy vegetable eaten with fat digests much better and I believe to have read somewhere also raises blood sugar slower and not as high.

I think eating monomeals is most popular among raw-food vegans. However, eating monomeals is a great way to determine if you are allergic to foods.

I don't believe there is hard evidence to say that a monomeal is healthier than a non-monomeal.
