Another Cause of Fatigue

When you eat a meal high in fats, such as fried foods, potato chips, french fries, or cheese, it destroys the B vitamins in your body and causes fatigue. This is due to the sludging of your blood.

The fats from your meal enter the blood stream and immediately coat your circulating blood cells. Blood cells normally bounce off each other and are flexible enough to bend and twist through the smallest blood vessels, taking blood to all the cells in all the tissues. Once coated with fat, however, they lose that essential elasticity. They clump together and become almost rigid. This lowers oxygen supply to your blood and worsens circulation to your tissues, especially your brain, causing you to feel sluggish and sleepy.

So, one of the immediate benefits of correct food combining and consuming a diet low in fats is the increase in energy levels. You wake up in the morning feeling rested and refreshed, never groggy or listless. You'll avoid being tired and sleepy after lunch. And you'll most likely correct any digestive problems, any allergies and low energy. The improvement in the overall quality of your life is well worth the small sacrifices and discipline involved.
