Any experience with the ALCAT test?

I had an ALCAT test done a couple of years ago, which produced a scoresheet of "bad" foods for me, semi-bad, somewhat okay and okay ones (my short description), based on some leukocyte examinations under a microscope, I think. Anyway, I have avoided all of the "forbidden" foods  for a few years now, at some cost to my sanity- there were about 100 foods I could no longer enjoy- but I wonder if this was all bogus. Is the ALCAT test a scam? I have been fearful to resume eating the "toxic" foods, fearing that they may cause problems, but I can't get a clear idea if this test is valid and reliable or not. Half the articles online sing its praises; the other half says it's pure quackery. Any thoughts? Thank you very much.
