I was never put on the yellow and blue menus, but started straight on the green. Anyone else get to skip the yellow and blue? I didn't think much of it because my counselor said I was so close to being under 200 and that was why, but I've been talking to others and it seems like skipping them is a bit of a deviation...even for others who started the program under 200.

Maybe it's because of my history of low blood pressure and sugar (or maybe electrolyte) crashes, but I was just curious if anyone else skipped straight to green.

I was never on the blue and yellow menu when I did MRC before but this last time I was. I called the center on the 3rd day and said I was starving, luckily I got the manager. She said what are you doing on that apparently if you weigh more than 200 lbs they don't put u on it.

Huh...interesting. They told me the other way around.

Hi.. I never skipped the yellow or blue menu.. There are five of my friends on the diet, and all on maintenance now, but we all had the yellow and blue and lastly, the green. I would ask another counselor about this, as I have never heard of a counselor tell anyone to skip two phases of the diet. let us know.

I started on the beige and once I hit 200, I was changed to the green. My friend was at 202 after pre-conditioning and she started on the green. We both have about 10 pounds to go and are still on green.

I too was started on the beige menu and my counselor told me that I would switch to green once I hit 199 lbs. 2 more pounds and I should be able to switch.
