Hi Liz,
I have to ask - what plan are you on? It looks like gold without lites. If you are not doing lites, then the real plan that you are on is green. How tall are you?

week 45
LAWL franchise center
Plan 2 with lites
total lost 55 lbs.
Original goal of 50 lbs lost – achieved
New goal to lose total of 65 lbs

Oh, I am with Lynn. Are you doing lites? If you are not getting enough calories, Liz, this could be why you are stalling.

I am on Gold and I am not doing lites. I haven't done lites since the center closed. I have thought about that too. I have tried to get an extra 1/2P in, but it seems so difficult to do. Do you know of a good suppliment for the lites? I am 5'6. I will have to go back and look at what the green entails. There is a thread on that isn't there?

Liz

Green is definitely not good for you, Liz. You should be doing purple w/no lites. Basically, it's bigger protein sizes and an extra veggie.

Liz,

Green is for people who are at the top end of the healthy weight for their height and they still want to lose weight. For someone like yourself, who is 5'6", the healthy weight range for you is 117-154. So let's say you were down to 154 and still wanted to lose weight to go lower, then you would eat according to the green plan.

You do not want to be on green, but by eating on the gold plan and not using the lites, you are effectively at a calorie level comparable to green.
Even if you were to eat an extra 1/2 protein a day, that would not be enough to make up for the almost 400 calories a day that the lite bars represent.

You are not at a low enough weight to safely be on green. Green is the lowest level plan and the hardest to follow because of the low level of calories.

I totally agree with Tina. If you are not doing lites every day, then you should be on purple. If you choose to do lites, then you would be on gold.

As far as substitutes for lite bars, many people use lunas. I am sure others will chime in with the other suggestions. Take care

Liz,
I'm all about subbing now simply for the variety. I do either hte South Beach high protein cereal bars, the Zone Advantage bars, or Lunas. The extra half protein is actually really easy to get in. It's as easy as 2 1/2 Tbsp of nuts, a hard boiled egg, or a string cheese. I have tons of half protein ideas, let me know if you need any. Also Purple has about 2 ounces more of most protein meaures.

Beacon6, surely you have discovered the miracle of hot lemon water? Just hot water and lemon, and I've heard that putting the actual lemon rind in the boiling water to get the essential oils from the skin gives it extra oomph.

I've also found that asparagus is great for helping to reduce water retention. Plus I really like it. I've heard that some people actually drink the juice that they boil the asparagus in, but the closest I've come to that is just making a soup with asparagus in it. (Low sodium broth is a wonderful thing!).

I will stick with the POP ness for the first 4 days of the week, but I already have big plans for going off on Friday for our wedding anniversary, but maybe after taking Friday off, I can actually manage a POP weekend for a change.
So I'm in for a time...

Default POP two days!

POP two days and counting. I ate out twice on Saturday but was well within range of being on plan. I took about 45mins in the morning deciding what I was going to have at each meal out and split the other exchanges through out the day. I only went over because my friend had some tempura shrimp and they looked so good!

Morning all,

OK so green doesn't seem to be what I need. I will go back to purple I guess. Tina, I sent you a PM in response to yours. I think I still have a purple plan at my house. I will let you know. Thanks for all the key information. Maybe that is why I keep stalling. I will give it a try.

I was totally POP yesterday. Here is to another POP day. My menu is below:

B - Slim Fast, Pear: P, S, F
Snack1 - Nuts: Fat
L - LAWL Clam Chowder, Apple: P, S, D, F
Snack2 - Orange: F
D - Salad: 3V

Good luck everyone on being POP.
