LA Weight Loss - So, AFTER the Purple plan comes...

So AFTER the Purple plan, when I lose weight, what is the NEXT color plan I would be on???

And, what in particular changes in that new plan? less protein is it??

sorry for all my questions...

You would move to gold which is less protein and one less veggie.

Wow. it's not even that MUCH of a difference either....

Nope, and it's surprisingly easy to get used to it. I thought I'd die over the change, but it wasn't bad. Oh, also note that your carb cravers get a little smaller, like you only get one slice of pizza instead of two. THAT part DID make me sad, heh.

thanks!!! but you say "protein" so how much less protein, because honestly, I feel the protein amount on the PURPLE plan is quite a lot! no??

I think that is what is making me scared that I am going to be eating too much on PURPLE and then gaining weight, or, not losing as fast as I should be???

can someone clarify?

thanks again!! xoxo

2oz less for beef, fish and chicken. 2 eggs instead of 3. 1 veggie burger instead of 2. (That will be the hardest for me)

Thanks for the breakdown...

let me ask you this now... I'm eating FRESH turkey... but I can't figure out, should it be 7 ounces (for one serving of Protein) or is it 4 ounces???

I am SURE it should be the 7 ounces since it is freshly carved turkey and not the deli one...

but can you confirm this for me?? Thanks in advance!! I'm eating in NOW lol...

The 7 oz is raw weight . . . sounds like you're carving cooked turkey-so that would be 4oz . . .

03-14-2007, 02:53 PM
ahhhhhh good catch!!! so I should have had 4 oz... and I had 5 oz...
oh darn...

thanks though!!!! xoxo

Well... I was told that the weight is raw and that if it's cooked you subtract one ounce for cooking. But deli meat - and it is deli meat unless it is carved off the bird right in front of you - is 4 oz. So either way I wouldn't worry about the 5oz too much.

Hi all,my call name is just how I feel I am a nice person.anyway got a question.New to the board and LAWL.This is my third day 1st day op after 2 day TO.I play soccer 2 times a week plus exercise at least a couple other days a week,Iwas put on gold plan.does this seem like enough to you guys?I did get sucked into la lites also to help with calorie intake,and am I going to sacrifice muscle with this plan?I am also a shift worker. any advice would be greatly appreciated.have a great day:)

You don't say what your starting weight is, your goal weight or your height, so not really sure. But, did you mention all this to your center? You would be moved up a plan for exercise that is consistenly 5hr/week or more and there is a blue plan for shiftworkers since they put n longer hours.

Sorry, my ticker didnt work,that sounds funny anyway I am 5'4" and weigh 155,goal weight is 125-130.I eat two lite bars included in my gold plan also.
I mentioned all of the above but she insisted this is the plan for me, I didint realize there were so many program colors until I came here,So what plan gives the most food? thanks

I did it

It's not a matter of what plan gives you the most food. Even with exercise and shift work you wouldn't need the same amount of food as someone double your weight.

Gold is the normal plan for you I think. If you exercise more than 5 hours they should move you up a plan. If you work 12hr days, you would need a different plan.

Since you are brand new they may be seeing how your schedule goes and how your weight loss goes before moving you around. Give it a few weeks. If you seem to be having problems and your COD counselor doesn't help you aske to see the manager. If you still don't get the answer you want, call the customer service 800 number.

But give the program a chance. It does work.
