    I am doing a semi version of that right now, mainly I made it up, well thought I did, until I did more research and found out someone made a diet on it(go figure).....
    I actually was reading fellow RJ Gymbob's profile and he said after he did the labrada diet about three times, he kept losing weight and reaching about 15% body fat, and wanted to get below 10...so he ordered this 13 day tri-decathalon deluxe diet, in which u pay $150+ for a 2 week supply of dehydrated food, that has been hand chosen as giving great benefits to your body. After I looked at each bag and what its ingredients were, most of them were anti-inflammatory foods, it was all vegetables, and fruits, and nuts.
    So I made up my own thing.
    Anyways I am doing an anti-inflammatory diet. You eat anything that has a positive IF value. A lot of foods, have pro-inflammatory effects on your body; sugar, saturated fats, white flour foods, fried and dairy. I did my own research and found the foods on my own, and made a list of good anti-inflammatory foods.

    The List-
    Vegetables: Asparagus, Broccoli, Carrots, Celery, Bell Peppers(controversial), Green Beans, Olives,
    Onions, Radishes, Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Squash and Sweet Potatoes.

    Fruits: Grapefruit, Oranges, Pineapple, Raspberries, Lemons.

    Nuts: Almonds, Cashews, Peanuts.

    Oils: Olive Oil, and Flaxseeds(and its oil)

    Fish: Tuna, Salmon, Clams, Oysters, Sardines, Anchovies.

    Herbs: Garlic, Ginger, Cayenne Pepper.

    Chicken and Beef are mildy pro inflammatory, but I feel that as long as you eat with a couple sources of anti-inflammatory foods you should be fine.

    I can say though after doing this for the past 3 days, I have noticed a change in mood and energy, and its great.
    Going to do this at least the 13 days(like the so called diet of dehydratedness) and see the benefits. Then continue with what I learned maybe stick hardcore to just anti-inflammatory foods for additional 2 to 3 weeks. Though, I do realize I need to get some whole grain foods in there eventually. I may add some after the 13 days, like oatmeal at breakfast and brown rice at lunch, and both are on list for pro-inflammatory.
    Also I am taking a multi-vitamin in the morning, as well as calcium with Vitamin D at night.
    Anyone else have done this or heard of this?

    Interesting. Dr Weil is big on anti-inflammatory diets. I think it's Ginger and Turmeric that are both anti-inflammatory as well.

    I would dump the calcium supplements since you're already taking a multi-vitamin.

    ah, thanx I forgot to add the spice/herb section.

    Which has garlic, and ginger in it.

    Taking the calcium with vitamin d at night because my centrum active, only contains 10% DV. and plus its better to take different vitamins at different times with help with absorbing them.

    I found all the IF values by going to nutritiondata.com
    you type in search for items and it tells you nutrition facts as well as pros and cons to eating the food, and the IF value. If this ezekial bread is made from sprouts and doesnt have any wheat substance, it should be ok....

    couldnt find ezekiel bread for you, but found recipe for it, and from looks of it, it looks like it can actually be pro-inflammatory, the millet, and beans itself make it a negative 1000 value. Though the other ingredients are anti-inflammatory, I would say just avoid it, if you want to be 100% anti-inflammatory. There are a few pro-inflammatory, but the amount of anit-inflammatory ingredients put it in the positive value.
    Splenda is a mild pro-inflammatory, it has a rating in the negative singles, I would still avoid splenda or any sugar substitute personally, if you really wanted to be all anti-inflammatory.
