I joined the program on Friday and did my Fast Forward Sunday and Monday. When meeting with the counselor on Friday, I mentioned that my doctor wants me to avoid fruits as much as possible right now. I have a mild case of a condition called dysbiosis which is basically an overgrowth of yeast and imbalance of good vs. bad bacteria in the gut. The counselor was really nice, but her response was "But, you need to eat fruit." Well, the natural sugars of fruit feeds this condition, so until he has it cleared I hesitate to eat that much fruit.
So, when I went on Monday, they gave me my access code for LA At Home. I decided to write the dieticians on that site yesterday afternoon to explain the problem and ask if there was a plan that required less fruit or any way my Gold plan could be altered. Less than 24 hours later, they emailed a response to me, my center, and updated my diary tracking area online to reflect the changes that they made to reduce my fruit intake to 1 daily. WOW
Talk about awesome customer service and really working with the medical conditions of others to make the plan work for them. After my Fast Forward, I lost 3 pounds. I'm even more excited about this program now!
