  1. Hi, Gloria. There isn’t really a certain time after which fruit should not be eaten, unless you have a particular reaction. As for the total amount each day, about 3 servings per day is generally recommended, unless you substitute some for starchy carbohydrates or sweets. I wouldn’t recommend worrying about not combining or always combining specific foods, as that sort of thing can be difficult to maintain and make enjoying events challenging. The only combination we recommend is ensuring carbohydrate foods (including fruits) with a source of protein, to curb the sugar effect. The pattern in the menus that are readymade or that you generate in the Menu Planner application take this into account, and can serve as a guide.

  2. The soup, steak and focaccia bread sound terrific. I look forward to trying them. However, I am very interested in knowing the correct way to combine different food. For instance, I love fruit and admittedly eat too much fruit throughout the day. I have gained over 30 lbs the past three years and I am almost certain its because of all the fruit I eat. I admit it I am a fruit junky. How much fruit should one eat during the day and at what time. I have heard that fruit should not be eaten after 2 PM and definitely not after certain food. However it was never elaborated as to the actual choices. Can you please fill me in on the actual details. I would greatly appreciate being enlightened.
