Have you had food allergy testing done and do you still eat allergen positive foods?

I was wondering how many people have had food allergy testing done. If so, what was the result and do you currently still eat the foods that came up positive in the testing? Also, has anyone tried the rotation diet and has it helped?

I've had the allergy test done and cut out the "red" foods and most of the "yellow" foods.

Rotation diet? I've been pondering the idea of not eating something I eat for X days so that if my immune system marked that food as an antigen, then I'd wait for the cells my body produces to combat it to die off. Is that the idea behind the rotation diet or is it something else?
