LA Weight Loss - TO w/out Lites
03-31-2007, 12:05 PM
I'm biting the bullet and doing TO Monday-Tuesday. (Did it once since FF in November and actually gained 2 pounds :mad: )
If I do it with out the lites, I go ahead and do it as a FF? If I do it the FF way do I limit the amount of protein I eat?

My understanding is that if you don't do Lites, you do FF. I just did 2 days of FF after being sick and lost 3 lbs. Of course, I am not a big meat overindulger - even when I can.

I'm doing the paln w/lites, but it's Red because of exercise. I had a huge problem with TO because of the lack of food. Of course the Dietican told me to do TO and just do it around days I don't work-out. COD told me to follow my gut and see what worked best. So I figured I'll FF but limit myself to only a little more protein than I would normally eat and 3 cups of green veggies.
While I've been more or less on plan, I know I need to revamp it so my body realizes it needs to lose not stabalize while it keeps losing inches. :dizzy:

I wonder If the lites are really all they say,they taste good.......
Can you still lose without them? I am seriously considering cutting them out as well,only because I tend to eat too many to compensate for not eating junk food.
Any suggestions,I went for WI and they insisted that I need them because of
the exercise that I do,Nicole,you had said that you have good luck without them.If I am on gold how do I exchange extra food and no lites?

I've never eaten the Lites and I have lost an average of 2.1 lbs. per week. So, it can be done.
When you say you "eat too many Lites to compensate for not eating junk food" does that mean you are eating more than your alotted 2 per day? If so, that will really slow down your weight loss.
If you are currently on Gold, they would need to move you up to Purple to compensate for the lack of Lites. I do know that Purple protien exchanges are more than Gold (like I get 7 oz. of cooked chicken per 1 protien serving) and I think you get one more Veg. and Fruit on Purple. I am not positive though.
You really should tell your COD that the Lites are not workng for you and that you need an all food plan. They should give you all the data on Purple then. You are the customer and you do need to have a plan that will work for you.

I'm really starting to wonder myself if the lites are a hinderance. :?: I'm thinking that after I do the FF, I'm going to spend the week POP as if I'm starting program all over again. I really think my body has adjusted to the way the plan works and it's time to do a major shake-up. Granted, this is what COD actually recommended to see if it would get me losing pounds again.
What I'm thinking is that after the FF, I'm going to try to do one lite a day and only one lite. I'll simply make it my post workout protein punch. Then, if I still feel the need for a second lite, I'll do a lighter lite (such as the key-lime, choc raspbery, or a drink) later on that night.
I guess I'm game for anything now, granted I spent the day at a work event and ate pretty much as off plan as you can get. Who knows, maybe that was the kick my body actually needed. :sumo:

What is FF? I just can't figure it out. I'm doing TO right now with the unlimited veggies. This is a little easier than the other times I've done it.

FF=Fast Forward-which has unlimited lean proteins and green veggies, plus juice and no bars. Usually only do this at the beginning of the program or instead of TO if you don't do lites.

on the home scale I dropped 6 pounds from Monday to Wednesday doing the FF. I'll see what the offical weigh-in is tommorrow after I've actually eaten for 3 days. :D It's inches day so I'll leave the center happy no matter what. :cheer:
I had one lite with meal 2 and one lite with meal 4 yesterday. Today I had one this morning, and have the one left for if I want it after my evening fruit. I'll let you know how it works. :)
You ROCK!!:carrot: I'm so excited for you!! So you ended up doing FF with one lite each day? And I can't remember did you do their juice or fruit? You are seriously making me want to do it now, lol. I've been doing fine but my weight loss is slowing down slowly but surely, so I wouldn't mind doing this if it might help kick it up a notch. Everytime I read the TO in the book though I just say No Way! I had no problem with the FF when I started the program but TO just looks so mean!

awesome on the loss, cant wait to hear the final results.I am excited to try this .after the long weekend of course.I might try it without the bars. I have a question though.How do you do TO with cantelope?
04-06-2007, 12:52 PM
With cantalope, the exchange is the same as if you were doing the TO Juice..
Instead of 4 oz of TO Juice mixed with 4 oz. of water, you eat 4 oz of cantalope, 4 times a day.. It basically works out to approximately 2 cantalopes over two days, depending on their size.
Remember to get all your water in!

I have a question. Can they actually restrict me from the TO drinks that are rightfully mine? I signed up during the 8 week body make over and received 4 bottles of the stuff. I used one of them the first two days. I do not use the lites because I have a dairy allergy and they told me that 99% of their products contain dairy products. I went in the other day and requested one of my bottles and she told me that since I do not use the lites that I lose all my TO ..is this right .. does this make sense?

It doesn't to me.. Will they refund your money for the unused bottles?
