It could be other factors. Such as health conditions etc. Do you work a different schedule than she worker?!

No, we both work in insurance 9-5 mon- fri Neither one has any serious health conditions !!

Hi stacey!

Take a deep breath, girl! ;) Just go with it for now-see how it goes. If you're not losing, they'll move you to a different plan. If your friend isn't losing, they'll move her up a plan. You just need to go with the flow, especially when you're first starting . . . .

You could also ask why you're on blue and not gold the next time you're in. It's certainly possible they made a mistake at one of the centers. IMO-if your friend isn't doing the lites-she shouldn't be on gold. I'm guessing the fact you're not doing the lites is why you're on blue . . .

that's my 2 cents-

Are you sure your friend is no lites? I have heard there is no such thing as gold or green w/o lites.

That is what I was thinking as well!!

I totally agree with JulieMarie as well - see how it goes - you never know - I started on gold w/ lites, but then switched to blue due to extra exercising - now, I think I'm kind of btw red and blue due to heavy weight training - I'm mostly doing blue with extra proteins......I don't go to the COD - so I try and play around and see what works for my body - it is not always a definite answer

I think that you are definitely on the right plan, but your friend is not going to lose as fast as you, because she is not getting enough food.

Thanks ladies but I am getting more confused by the min. I will be exercising 1 hour a week to start , I have 40-50 pounds to lose, I am not doing lites and whne I went to the center the other day she showed me the chart that stated if I had ideal weight = 50 = gold but they still have me on blue. I don't get it I am not doing the lites or bars I hate them, but I just don't get it. Well I am starting today so I guess we will see .
Thanks everyone for your help.

I'm pretty sure they put you on blue because you aren't eating the lites - they always up your food if you don't plan to eat the lites - they want to make sure you eat enough so that your body doesn't think you're starving and hang on for dear life. Katie is right - it's weird, but if you don't eat enough and in the right combinations, you won't lose weight.

I'm with Heather and JulieMarie - just try what they have you doing and see what happens in the first couple of weeks. Don't worry about what your friend's COD told her - this is about you.

I didn't think blue had that much more food than gold. Is it enough addition to offset the bars? I started at 188 and they put me on Gold with the lites-- I would be curious to hear your calories on Blue. I completely stall anytime I dip below 1200--learned the hard way I think! What extra does Blue have over Gold?

Yeah Kristi right, 1/2 protein and 1 more starch, I have lost 1.5 pounds in 3 days so maybe they are right. Thanks ladies for your thoughts on this I will keep in touch.

If you qualify for GOld or Green the plan you need to go on with out the lites is purple. Any questions ,please feel free to ask me.

If youre not using lites and exercise more than 2hrs, then its red, right?

06-12-2006, 11:01 PM
If you exercise 5 or more hours then red or red 1. Depends what you're doing. Do ask your COD for details. Red is also for you if you qwork long hours or graveyards.

My center said under 2hrs, Purple, and over, Red. In addition to working out, I have three active little kids and work from home well into midnight each night. who knows....

I have a question too - is the 2 vs. 5 hours - is that strictly cardio only?

06-13-2006, 10:34 AM
They just told me "exercise", you know how scientific they are at the center...I do about 5 hrs cardio and an hour strength per week

06-14-2006, 02:28 AM
In training I was told cardio that goes above and beyond your normal daily routine. I'll double check if you'd like.

Hi all,
So now I'm confused. I just joined this week and I think I'm on the Blue plan. The kit looks blue/tealish color. I however took the lites and I exercise daily. What am I missing. Plan consists of 21/2p,3v,3f,3s,1d,1f,2lites.
Also I only need to lose 15lbs

06-25-2006, 12:13 PM
Yep. You are on the blue plan! If you have an odd schedule, like shifts or something, that will be what they put you on!
