Is there scientific research behind the gracie diet or is it more of a "trial and error" system they invented?

Any chance you can explain what the Gracie diet is for those of us who don't know.

The way it looks, it seems to be more of a trial and error thing. It doesn't even really make sense. What goes down, no matter how it is mixed, has all the nutrients needed extracted. If you ask me, its a load of BS. But then of course, thats just my opinion.

I was on the Gracie diet for about 3 months. Just stopped and went on Low Carb to get rid of the last vestiges of a gut. It is really nice to look straight down and see my toes.

The gracie diet was created by Carlos Gracie as a means of ensuring that all Gracie fighters are ready to fight at any given time. It is not a diet per se of losing weight, it is a diet of mixing the right foods that interact chemically while digesting.

My thoughts on the diet are that it is extremely easy to do. With one hot meal a day, it takes a bit to get used too. I found myself after the first week, very energetic and able to last a whole class without feeling lethargic. Eating every 4 hours for 3 meals total wasn't hard at all to do. I lost alot of weight on this diet, coupled with my training regimen of 6 days a week in Jits.

Was Carlos Gracie a scientist?

Of course he is a scientist. The Gracie's have never taken information from somewhere else and claimed it as their own.

This is not true.

There will definitely be differences in the way nutrients are absorbed when foods are mixed.

Was Stephen W. Hawking a NHB champion fighter? :D

for example, tannins and alkaloids will impair iron absorption while vitamin C will improve.

Has this diet been put under any academic or scholarly review? My access to online periodical data bases like proquest is not activated yet from UC Riverside, so I couldn't do a very thorough search. To anyone's knowledge are there any academic papers reviewing the gracie diet within the health/nutrional academic community?
