Carbs. The more complex the carbohydrate, the longer it will be in your stomach being digested. Maxi carbs are more complex than midi carbs, which are more complex than mini carbs. A potato will take perhaps three hours, mushrooms an hour and a half. Just because something takes longer to digest doesn't mean you can't have it. It means you must learn how to combine it That is what the Beverly Hills Diet is all about That is why I call my technique Conscious Combining.

Fats. We don't eat fats by themselves, so we don't need to know how they act alone. We do need to know that they slow down the digestion of whatever it is they are eaten with by as much as several hours or more. But fats don't neutralize any enzymatic action, so you can combine them with a carb or a protein without any serious problem.
