Hi
Does any of the numbered plans include 21/2proteins? I am just wondering how the color compare with the numbers.

Thanks

I think the portion sizes are bit different between the colored and numbered plans too. Especially the protein servings.

I just dropped to Plan 1 with lites at 147 lbs - I'm 5'5". I only have a few more weeks of paid weight loss and I asked them today what I could do without the lites. I was told I could add a protein, starch and fat but he didn't say whether that was for one bar or two. I did buy the Luna bars just in case. The bars help with my sweet tooth.

P.S. I do HLW every night. One large coffee mug full.

Hi,

Did numbered plans come before or after the colored plans? Someone said Carb Cravers was replaced with Combos? Could some one explain exactly what numbered plans are?

Thank you so much

Numbered plans are for LA Weightloss and Colored are for Pure Weightloss? I think? You might want to wait and see if anyone else responds.

This gets confusing. I will try to answer it as simply as I can. LA Weightloss was one company and it had franchise (owner operated) and corporate owned centers. There was one weight loss plan and the various plans within the program are designated by colors, red, purple, gold, etc.

Then the two owners went their separate ways. The corporate owned portion of the business because Pure Weight loss and kept the colored coded plans.
The franchise part of the business kept the name, LA Weight loss and they introduced a newer version of the weight loss plan in the Summer of 2007. The Free to Live Menu Plan and it has various plans and they are numbered.

Both plans are very good plans; but they are like comparing apples and oranges. To be successful, you need to follow closely one plan or another.

The corporate part of the business closed shop on Jan 4 so those people who are following the color coded plans are on their own without a COD to weigh in or to get help from.

Carb Cravers is part of the color coded plans and is something available for those on one of those plans. It does not exist on the numbered plans. It is just one of many differences between the color coded plans and the numbered plans.

I have said this before and I will say it again here. I have been on both the color coded plans and the numbered plans. They are both great plans. I, however, would not recommend that someone switch to the numbered plans unless you have the complete menu plan documentation. The reason is this - they are numerous changes and it is not just to the portion sizes. I have to refer to the booklet quite often. If you want to be successful, follow the plan that you have the complete information for.

It is also important that one someone asks a question on this forum that you specify whether you are asking for help regarding the color coded plans or the numbered plans. That is the only way that you will get the correct answer for the plan that you are following.

Thank you so much Lynn!

I think I am finally understanding.

Lynx

One thing further that I want to add is that both plans are nutritionally balanced in their own way and it is important to utilize the plans the way they were intended. They both were designed for weight loss, but with different emphases. Hope this helps.

Lynn I love your quote. But Why cant I have my dessert and be thinner too?!?!

Kimberly, I think the answer is yes, but only if it is made with splenda and coolwhip free. Or SF jello.... or the all time favorite at my house. SF Jello with coolwhip free on top! The dessert of dieters.

Hi Jewel,
It is hard for us to tell if you are on the right plan. We don't have access to the height and weight charts used by LAWL. Right off the bat I can tell you that you were placed on a plan one higher because you are not doing lites. So that means they placed you originally on plan 3. If you have any special medical conditions that is often a reason for them to put you on a higher plan. I know that is what happened to me.
I know it seems like a lot of food, but this is a "eat more, balanced food plan" and it works.
Maybe someone else closer to your height and weight will chime in, but I say give it a try.

So... ok, I know I'm on the smaller of the 2 red plans, and I know the next one down is purple and I should be going on it soon (actually, before I stopped going, the girls at my center put me on the purple plan for 2 weeks before one of the big wigs said they put me on it too early, so I went back to red). My centers closed around fall of last year so I'm left to fend for myself. Do you guys know which # plan coincides with purple?

Dear Maurader,

From what I know, some people who were on purple went to plan 3 and some went to plan 2. It depended, as always, on their height and weight.
I have been on both the color coded plans and the numbered plans. They are both great plans. I, however, would not recommend that someone switch to the numbered plans unless you have the complete menu plan documentation. The reason is this - they are numerous changes and it is not just to the portion sizes. I have to refer to the booklet quite often. If you want to be successful, follow the plan that you have the complete information for. One thing further that I want to add is that both plans are nutritionally balanced in their own way and it is important to utilize the plans the way they were intended. This is not a mix and match type situation. They both were designed for weight loss, but with different emphases. Hope this helps.

Thanks Lyn! That was a great help! I guess I'm just trying to figure out what the next step will be for me. :)

Does anyone know what the portion #s were for the purple plan? I think it was 1/2 less protein and 1 less fruit, but I'm not sure. :?:

MTdebster921

purple is:

2 protein
4 veggies
3 fruits
2 starches
1 dairy
1 fat
2 lites

Protein portions are the same as on the red plans and then they decrease when you go to gold.

If you are not doing lites then this will be the equivelant of the gold program.

Hi Jewel,
I am also on plan 4; I am 5'8' and currently weigh 201 lbs. I have had good success with the plan, as I have dropped from 226 since July 10. If you are concerned that it is too much food, if you run your daily menus through FitDay, you will see that the calories run between 1650-1800. Hope this helps. As an aside, portion sizes for protein are 3oz cooked pork or beef, 4oz cooked turkey or chicken, 1 cup cottage cheese, 1 cup egg beaters, 2 eggs. If you have a specific question regarding another protein choice, I will respond once I get home and have access to my book.

This is a big help, thanks guys!

I seem to have stalled a little bit, and would love a fresh start. I am thinking of going with plan #3, since I am not using lites.

I will definitely ask for help when needed. Thanks!

I have all the info for the Feel Full Plan. I am just trying to figure out which one would be for me. I am 5'7 153lbs and my goal is 130lbs. I exercise just about every day. I work 3 -6 nights a week depending on the week and if I am working for someone. I waitress. Sometimes I am up early sometimes not as early. I homeschool, take care of family and house, you know the usual. I was on the Blue Plan and was told that is where I would stay. I have lost 50lbs on this plan but I have been hungry lately. I tend to exercise harder and more since I feel so good and energetic. I don't have the cravings as much anymore because my taste in food has changed. I eat every 2-3hrs. but I am really hungry. So I am looking at all the info for the Feel Full Plan and feel that would be for me. I am trying to decide between Plan 2 and Plan 3.

Thank you for your help
Tracey
