Hi, years ago I did the Gold plan with Lites with success! (or what I think is Gold, been so long ago I forgot. Maybe it was purple?) Since then, I have gain some (not all!) weight and would like to lose it again and more. I have also lose my menu plan but I do remember what to take:

3 Veg
3 Fruits
2 Starches
2 Proteins
1 Dairy
1 Fat
2 LA Lites
3 Condiments

Anyways, since I lost the menu plan, is there anyway for those of you who still has the menu to tell me the foods and weight of each for me to take? If it's too much to ask, I can go to ebay and buy the purple one for 20 bucks (but i don't wanna spend 20 bucks :P).

PS. I would like to switch to the Gold plan w/o Lites. What's the difference in that?

FYI. I am 26 years old and would like to lose 30+ lbs. Right now I'm at around 160 and wanna go down to 130. Originally i was at 195 and lost weight down to 150. So, after a few years I ONLY GAINED 10LBS. This plan is awesome and easy! Anway, with those changes should I still be on the gold plan?

foxyc83, I think the gold plan would be good. You may have originally been on purple and then moved to gold. That is what they normally do, but I would not think you would be back up at purple now.

The only difference in the portion sizes between purple and gold is the proteins. On Gold 6 ounces of chicken is one protein and on purple it is 8 oz.

The whole serving thing is a lot to type in though. These are my guesses at what a serving is. Generally one fruit is probably in the 40-60 calorie range. So you can have a whole orange or half a banana. I do recall pears were half a pear. One small apple or half of a large one. Starches were normally in the 50-100 calorie range, so one slice of bread or a rice cracker or a small tortilla. Some tortilla count as 2 starches. Some people stick to closer to the 50 calories if they find they are in a plateau. A fat is around 70 calories.
