Yes, there are even food combining tips for fruit, like acid fruits before sweet fruits, melons before berries, berries before bananas. Generally you want to eat the lighter foods first like watermelon and cataloupe and the heavier fruits like bananas last.
The ideal way to eat for optimal digestion is to consume mono-meals, meaning meals consisting of a single food. So 7-8 bananas would be breakfast, for instance. But that gets pretty boring, so there are tips for food combining to minimize the energy needed by digestion.
The less energy you spend on digestion, the more energetic you feel.
