I don't have my book anymore, I'm flying on my own, so I really need to write down my plan for tomorrow. I'm going to start back on Red with lites (lunas) and see how that goes for the next little while. I never did very well on Purple, so I'll wait to move to that until I'm really stalled.

January 5th Red w/lites

3P, 3S, 4V, 3F, 1D, 1Fa, 2L (Is that right?)

Breakfast: toast with LF cheese, yogurt & blueberries (1S, 1P, 1D, 1F)
Snack: Luna (1L)
Lunch: Salad with chicken breast, almonds (2V, 1P, 1Fa)
Snack: Apple (2F)
Dinner: Chicken, 2/3c Basmati rice, broccoli (1P, 2S, 1V)
Snack: Luna & melon

I am doing Red with Lites, and my book has 2.5 Protein, not 3, everything else matched you.

Good Luck!

01-04-2008, 11:14 PM
Thank you! It's been awhile...

01-04-2008, 11:43 PM
Okay, I need to plan Sunday as well, it's my DS's 3rd bday and it could be rough if I don't plan ahead.

Red no lites (decided not to bother with lites...3P,4V,4F,4S,1Fa,2D)

Breakfast: Toast, 2 oz LF cheese, yogurt (1S, .5P, 1D)
Snack: Watermelon (2F)
Lunch: (will be at the movie theater) Popcorn & Water (2S, 1Fa)
Snack: (actually lunch after the movie) Pizza & raw veggies (cc=1P, 2V)
Dinner: Porkchop, salad (1.5P, 2V, 1F)
Snack: Yogurt, Blueberries, 1/3 cup All bran (1D, 1F, 1S)

Noooo cake. No cake. Nope, none... No cake.

Angie- The red plus plan on the old LAWL program is listed as this:

Ronlu said in another thread that he is on plan 4 which is like red1 but doesn't do lites and he gets3 1/2P,4V,4F,5S,2Fa,3D

I would probably add a S,F,D,Fa to what you are eating. Try it out for a week and if it doesn't work, then tweak it until you get the right combo.

1-4-08 plan 2 with lites

B-cottage cheese, fresh pineapple, graham cracker (1/2P,F,S)
S- 1/2 mango-lite (F)
L- veggie burger, lettuce salad, LF cheese, black olives, 100 cal doritos(P,V,D,Fa,S)
S-baby carrots (V)
D-ground deer sausage, potatoes,mushrooms,cr. mushroom lite(P,S,V,lite)

01-05-2008, 01:44 PM
1-5-08 plan 2 with lites

B-eggs, zuchinni, toast, mango(PVSF)
S-lite bar

Planned for rest of day:
L-chicken sandwich, laughing cow cheese,green salad (PS1/2DV)
S-cheese stick,pineapple,lite bar(1/2DF)
D-White chicken chili, crackers (PV1/2DS)

01-05-2008, 02:45 PM
Well today 1/4/08 on the Blue Plan
B 1/2 egg salad sandwich 1/2P (1 egg) 1S (45 cal Bread) 1F 1 tbsp mayo
S 1/2 grapefruit
L Slimdown choc. shake 1P 1S
12 carrots 2V
S 1 cup grapes 2F
D Chicken Fajita 1P(4 oz chick) 1S (tortilla) 1V (lettuce)
So I had 2.5 Protein 3 Starch 3 Vegetables 3 Fruit 1 Fat

I generally follow this plan through out the week with fruit and veg. variation. Then on weekend I will not have the slimdown and will replace with eggs or beef but then I don't have egg salad in morning I may eat 1/2 Reduced Fat PB sandwich. I am not a huge beef eater and I don't eat seafood at all none of it to begin with and I am very picky eater so I never have alot of variation. It will be nice to see what other people are having to give some ideas. Good luck
