Re: Anyone have a list of binding vs non-binding foods?
Thanks for clearing up my doubt. Now that I know for sure, I can comment. I have never seen a list of binding foods published anywhere. Probably because a lot depends on your overall diet. Many foods can be binding or not, depending on how they are used in the meal. For example: If you eat 3 or 4 ounces of meat with a meal that includes lots of vegetables, whole grains, and fruit, that shouldn't cause any problem.
On the other hand, suppose you made a meal of mostly meat and white bread. That would likely cause a problem because of a lack of fiber. And fiber comes from plant sources rather than animal.
The important thing to remember is that you need lots of fiber in your diet. That means you need to eat lots of vegetables, legumes, whole grains and fruit and avoid overeating meat and other forms of animal protein.
