Default purple plan with no lites

Hi Everyone!! What a great forum...I'm new here and have been enjoying all the advice. I have about 10-15 lbs to lose and joined LAWL last week. I started with the 2 day takeoff and then they put me on the green plan with lites. After the lites trial I asked for a plan without the lites and so was put on the purple plan with no lites. It seems like alot more food Does this seem right with you guys?

My understanding is that if you don't do lites, they bump you up a plan so you're getting enough protein, calories, etc.

I will take a stab at this. I don't claim to be an expert, but I have been on the program 8 + months.
Each lite bar is between 170-180 calories with about 8 grams of protein. So if you are not doing lites, you have a deficit of 340-360 calories including 16 grams of protein. No matter what weight loss program we are on, for our bodies it is still calories in and calories out. There isn't a 350 calorie difference between the green plan and the gold plan and the protein servings are the same for green and gold. So that is why, I believe, that they need you to jump up to the purple plan when you are not doing lites.

I have a HUGE favor to ask. I'm on Gold right now, but I'll be switching to Purple w/o lites as soon as I run out of bars. I don't have my old Purple book anymore, and I really need to know:

1) which protein servings differ between Purple and Gold and

2) what the Purple protein serving sizes are (only for portions that differ from Gold).

I know it's a LOT to ask someone to type up, but I'd be forever thankful. Or, if someone has a scanner and could scan it and email it to me at Ladyzaidi @ aol . com that would be equally appreciated.

Red. I'm maintaining on red w/lites with the same type of workout habits. If you want to stay away from lites, I would add on an exta half protein before your workout. It'll make a difference in the energy you have.

Tomorrow I'm finally switching from GOLD with bars to PURPLE without bars. If you are doing Purple w/o bars, I'd love to hear how it's going for you.
