It's HARD! I know some of you are not at this point yet in LEAP, but I am finding it more difficult than I had thought.

The theory is that we are supposed to rotate all foods in a food group and only eat them every 3 days. Well, excuuuuuse me, but what about those wonderful fruit salads that can potentially contain as many fruits as you feel like cutting up? The more the better, IMHO. LOL! Or buying a large box of berries and not being able to eat them for 2 more days, at which point they may have started to spoil. (I could buy smaller portions, but then the cost goes way up). I have always loved leftovers and can eat them for days even. Or trying to plan meals when you have other family members to consider? Or when eating out and you have no control over what veggie is available that night? Have you noticed that the only vegetable for us is usually steamed broccoli - if they have other veggies they are invariably swimming in butter.

Well thanks for listening to my hissy fit I know I will figure this out and be able to do it in moderation (Sara's favorite word - tee hee). One of these days it will probably become second nature, just like the paleo diet did.

Hugs,

Polly

Polly,

I suspect that the difficulty in rotating foods is part of the reason I haven't been in a hurry to test new foods. I have my rotation down pat, and I'm not sure I'd be able to rotate new ones in as seamlessly. I also wonder how I would make fresh fruits last. Eating out will probably always be a challenge.

I remember that Mary Beth said that she's not as concerned about rotating foods at this point as she is about eating a diversified diet. I'm sure she'll be weighing in on this.

I'm not terribly strict with rotation. Of course I have coffee daily and that's not about to change! I think it's fine to eat a few for a few days and then not have it again for a few days. On a weekly basis I plan to have a variety of meats, fruits and veggies and vary that as much as I can. But, what I do try to do is eat more seasonally, as I think that's how we were intended to eat. In the fall I ate lots of pomegranates, but now I won't have them (or juice) until fall. In the winter/early spring I eat lots of grapefruit and then avoid the rest of the year. That's not easy to do with meats and grains, so they should be rotated a bit more diligently I suppose. From reading what other LEAp dietitians say, it certainly is possible to have a "green food" turn "red" from overuse, but it doesn't happen that often.

Good to know, Mary Beth. I've been wondering about that.

I have a feeling that I'm overdoing almond milk, flour and butter. Almonds are pretty nutritious and high in potassium, so I hate to skimp on them.

Another plus to rotating is that three days pass between eating the foods. That time lag helps to pinpoint which ones are the offenders.
