Changing Things Up Keeps Your Diet On Its Toes – Part Two on The Rotation Diet.

In our second article on the Rotation Diet, we present a sample plan that we put to the test ourselves the last few weeks. An adventure for sure, but we like to test things out whenever possible to make sure they work.

Again, the idea is that you are not eating the same foods day after day. This is a complicated eating plan, and really designed to help with serious allergy problems, multiple chemical sensitivities and autoimmune disease. This said, I’ve noticed more clarity, more energy and better sleep.

It quickly becomes apparent that on a plan like this,

  • You will be cooking many of your own meals.
  • Eating out is a challenge in many restaurants, since all of the menu items contain too many ingredients.
  • Processed foods are impossible to fit into this plan, again because they contain too many ingredients.
  • Planning is needed for your shopping and meal preparation.

Below is the layout of the plan we are eating from. There is no one way to do this right. The only goal is to not eat a given food more often than every four days. The list of “Floating Foods” are foods that are not included in the regular Day 1 through 4 rotation. Therefore they can be added in once every four days to put some variety in the plan. (The list of “Floating Foods” is at the bottom of this page.)

If you are seriously considering trying this yourself, you could easily begin with the plan below.

But if you are going to start modifying this plan, or creating one of your own, we STRONGLY recommend that you get the best book on the subject, An Alternative Approach To Allergies – The New Field Of Clinical Ecology Unravels The Environmental Causes Of Mental And Physical Ills by Theron G. Randolph, MD and Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D. Get the Book Here.
