I am new to this forum so forgive me. I'm not really sure what I'm doing but I'll give it a go. I went to OA about 3 years ago and was successful at losing weight but not at maintaining. I can't find the plan I used as far as weights and measures. Does anyone have something they would be willing to share? I found a plan A however it just says 1 protien, 1 fruit... I need cups and ounces. Thank you for any suggestions.

I got my food plan from my sponsor, who guides me during the weight loss and maintaining phase. I find her guidance invaluable, in all physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. Highly recommend getting a sponsor if you don't have one.

Below is my food plan measurements. I noticed that meat, poultry or fish is normally defined as 3 ounces per serving in most plan, but I'm following my sponsor's plan. Take what you like and leave the rest. It may *not* be a fit for you, everyone's needs is different. This is from a *NON professional* person!
