Thanks Amy. I've been stuck for over a month now with the same 2 - 3 pound loss/gain so maybe I'll try this. Let us know if it helps you!! Good luck.

Amy

I did this and it WORKED! I lost 4.6 pounds that week after being stuck for 2 weeks. It is realtively painless, no TO juice and same portions as your regular plan, just sticking to low fat choices and eliminating the extras. The only thing I did notice from the list that you posted (thank sooooo much, now I have a copy I can print) is that I was told to add 2 cups of water each day for the first two days.

What about the lites? This dosen't really mention them. I am assuming that you still have 2 a day? I have seen in the other posts that you use 1 bar and 1 drink.

Another question. Is the Frozen food referring to the Frozen Entree's only or does that include the vegetables and fruit. I love the frozen blackberries, so I need to know if I can have them or not. I cannot see why you wouldn't be able to have them. Sorry to make it so complicated, just wondering if it addresses any of these.

Hi Amy (amylou),
I have a question too. Do you exclude dairy during this period? Also, as Amy (aguerin) asked, are lites used during this period? I would assume that if you normally use lites, you use lites during the plateau buster and use the foods in the list in serving sizes according to your normal plan.
Thanks for posting this!

ETA: I see the note at the top says to consume all dairy and other servings, so disregard this question. oops...I should read more carefully.

You don't eliminate any food categories. You are just eating lighter choices. Amy, I am sure the frozen fruits are fine as long as they are comparable to the fresh version. You are eliminating the frozen dinners.

Yes, you eat the same as plan with the exception of the noted changes. The frozen food is most definitely the frozen meals.

As for the lites...I am still doing them. My COD didn't mention them one way or the other. I am going back in tomorrow to double check BUT I don't know if I could give them up...the no condiments is kind of making things a little boring (no salad dressing???) but you can use the morton lite salt and lemon to perk things up!

Roberta I'm so glad to hear it worked for you!

Thanks for posting this, Amy. I can't seem to get the scale to budge. Going to start this tomorrow. Plan to go weigh in on Saturday, maybe it will make me show a loss. Do you think it will be okay to do this, then follow it with takeoff??

So I checked with my COD and you do continue with lites during this 5 day period! She said to make sure to increase you water and really avoid any pre-packaged foods!

It's worked for me....another lb in 2 days!

Here is something I found elsewhere. I had it saved and will repeat it here.

Anonymous advice from a LAWL Counselor

This counselor had lost over 100 pounds on LAWL and has kept it off for 8 years.
1. Eat only 1 LAWL bar a day and for the other lite use their cocoa, pudding, shake. The bars have too much sugar in them.
2. For fruit eat cantalope, strawberries, apples and grapes. They flush out of your system faster.
3. Mix up your foods - don't get in a rut eating the same every day.
4.When you eat a Lean Cuisine or eat out make your fruit the next day melons. Best fruits are berries, citrus, and melons. Instead of dried fruits--eat an apple a day. Crunch foods help with stress.
5. Limit beef intake. Better to eat fish, chicken, and turkey.
6. Limit pork, peanut butter, and all dried fruits.
7. Use lettuce with Lean Cuisine or similar meals to limit the salt retention.
8. Don't eat carrots daily--too much sugar. In fact, get them out of your diet al together.
9. Have a piece of cheese toast for breakfast. While you can split dairy it really is better to stay with the same dairy daily. You can split the serving but don't mix up the types.
10. Be consistent on water intake. If all you drink is 40 ounces--then do that every day. Up and down on water can affect water retention.

Those are great tips. I actually printed out a copy with the Plateau Buster (again). I had a wierd evening last night and ate everything that was not nailed down. Not sure what set it off, but I must have consumed an extra day's calories all after 6:00 pm.

This morning I started the Plateau Buster - hopefully it will work as well as it did before. I finally weigh back in next Saturday after my mandatory medical leave for 2 1/2 weeks. I have really missed knowing that I was going to weigh in every week.

Hopefully, I did not do too much damage. I am going to bump up my workouts and water this week.
