A) Because of many strike-outs of foods, if there are too few foods left in the Meal Ideas Table (lower table), consider first that you may have eliminated too many foods instead of Rotating Foods.
- So re-consider your eliminations carefully. Possibly limit eliminations to only medically diagnosed allergens : after all, you have chosen Food Rotation in order to try to keep as many foods in the diet as possible : Food Rotation reduces sensitization, not by elimination, but by eating a food ONLY every four days = 4 day recovery period, before re-exposure. After several 4-day rotations, you and your health provider may be able to identify suspect foods, as well as those well tolerated(may be able to be eaten more often to help your food “shortage”).
- Also, you may open up the Taxonomy Chart(button at top right of software Food Chart) for possible additional foods and type these into your 4-Day Recipe Planner. For example, you will find that chicken and turkey are in the same food family, although only chicken is mentioned in the Food Chart (Meal Ideas Table). You may have struck-out Chicken, but you may tolerate Turkey. OR, if you have deleted broccoli in family #25, find alternatives in taxonomy family #25, OR find another vegetable family permitted on the problem Day, and select from its alternatives in the taxonomy.
The Software was deliberately designed for workable size, and simplicity : so not to overwhelm with all possible foods.
B) If you are using the RotationDietPlus Software for convenience with Restrictive Diets(which remove key categories or many food categories (ie. Paleo or Candida Diet)), you will very likely have too few food choices daily for Food Rotation : So you will need to consider foods from all 4 days as available for eating at each and every meal. Hopefully your Restrictive Diet helps you regain health to widen your diet so you do not need to deprive yourself your entire life.
The RotationDietPlus Software helps manage complex diets. Consult a qualified health professional for any dietary change and any disease condition.
