LA Weight Loss - Different plans = different servings and exchanges?

I'm a bit confused. If different plans have different numbers of exchanges and serving sizes, then how do the recipes work? Let's say a recipe says it's exchanges are 1P - 2V - 1S. 1P on the red plan is a much larger portion size than 1P on the Gold plan. So how can 1 recipe or cookbook by used by all? :?: (

The recipes in the cookbook usually say to adjust the protein size according to the plan you are on.

I just glanced thru the LA Lite cookbook -- and every recipe I saw said:

"size according to plan"

So gotta know your plan - up-close-and-personal.... ;)

I *think* the only one you need to size according to plan is the protein and everything else is just the number of servings.

From what i understand, the only difference in portion size is the protein. The rest of the difference between plans is just the number of servings for each, like gold has 3 V, Green has 2 v (I think), etc. So the size of the veggies, fruits and starches is the same just the number of servings allowed is different.

Is that as clear as mud?
