Your system produces two types of digestive juices, acids for proteins and alkalines for starches. The two cancel out when produced at the same time. So meat and potatoes say, a protein and a starch, or a meat sandwich, again a protein and a starch, or tacos' proten filled starch. This cancels your digestive enzymes and juices out, and creates major problems.
You will notice the difference in that your body will metabolize food faster and it won't stay in your system for a long time, which a slower metabolism does.
