The color plans are actually the older info. It consits of different measurements on proteins, starches, etc. then the new plans do. On the new plans your serving sizes on various foods stay exactly the same no matter what plan your on, the only difference is how many servings of each group you get per day.

Green
2 proteins
2 veggies
2 fruits
2 starches
1 dairy
1 fat
2 la lites

Gold
2 proteins
3 veggies
3 fruits
2 starches
1 fat
1 dairy
2 la lites

Blue
2.5 proteins
3 veggies
3 fruits
3 starches
1 fat
1 dairy
2 la lites

Purple
??? I'll have to edit this when I remember it but it was pretty much like gold except for the ounces and serving size on various foods

Red
2.5 proteins
4 veggies
3 fruits
3 starches
1 fat
1 dairy
2 la lites


Orange plan is just for teens, blue plan is for seniors or those who work out more than five hours a week and need that extra protein.

The "fast forward diet" is the same thing as Take off #1, formerly known as LA Express. It involves Take off juice (same result can be obtained with either cantaloupe, oranges or grapefruit), unlimited amount of beef, chicken, turkey, fish, lamb, liver, shellfish (fresh), tuna (water packed only) and veal, (no pork, no deli meat, no cheese); veggies- RAW GREEN ones (not peas). Morton's lite salt (1/4 teaspoon) and lots of water. If you get a headache it's due to caffeine withdrawl usually and a diet soda or some asprin should correct this. You can have a minimum of 2 eggs or 1/2 cup eggbeaters each day.

Carb Cravers are meals that are starchier that you can count as a Protein in your menu plan that day as long as you drink 2 extra cups of h2o. IMO, carb cravers always stalled weight loss but they are things like pb&j, turkey sandwiches (all made on 40 calorie bread), cheese or veggie pizza- oil blotted, nachos made at home, believe it was only 8 chips, etc.


Frozen Foods- choose any that have between 2-300 calories
less than 40 grams carbs
at least 14 grams protein
less than 10 grams carbs
less than 750 mg sodium

dining out, now that's a lot to type so I'll try to scan my counseling guide. Hope this saved you some money!
