Hey! Long time no post! :D

anyhow, I was just curious on the different plans now..
I was put on Plan 2 before I went on break from the center and it has :

2 1/2 P
3 S
2 Fat
2 D
2 F
3 V

I was just curious what the plan would be if you weighed a bit more?

And I am not sure if they plan is different in Canada & US.. becuase I saw you all post that plan 2 for you only had 2 P.

thanks!
Candice

If someone could update this with any other plans then we can put it out in the newbie thread for future reference. It might also be nice to have a comparison of the old color plans to the new numbered plans.

Plan 2

2 1/2 Protein
3 Veggie
2 Fruit
3 Starch
2 Dairy
2 Fat

Plan 3

3 Protein

I don't know what number this would fall under. I just started and I am on the Purple plan.

2 protein
3 fruit
4 veg
2 starch
1 dairy
1 fat
2 lites

Does anyone know where this falls? I just started Pure on 12-3-07. I am trying to figure things out.

Thanks,
Dionne

You also need to know the amounts of food for each exchange for the numbered plan -- I believe the exchanges are smaller and you eat about the same amount throughout the day -- but not positive. I am on Red.

2 Starches
1 Dairy
1 Fat
2 LA Lites

GOLD

1 Dairy
1 Fat
2 LA Lites

RED
2.5 Protein
4 Veggies
3 Fruits
3 Starches
1 Dairy
1 Fat
2 LA Lites

*** RED is the starting plan given to those who are not doing the lites, the protein portions are 2 to 3 oz bigger ***
