First question is how tall are you?
I was on Red w/lites (2.5p, 4v, 3fr, 1fa, 3s, 1D) and swtiched myself to Purple recently....it did not work! I was so frustrated, so now I am back on red and waiting to see if that does the trick. Lynn (who recently hit goal!!) helped me to realize I probably shouldn't move to purple considering my height and busy schedule. She reccommended Blue, which is Red with an extra veggie, but I've had so much trouble doing 5vs that I've pretty much been doing red.
Especially since you are just starting back my instinct is to have you start on Red. But I have not been doing this very long and hopefully the experienced pros will chime in!
The protein sizes are smaller on blue than on red.
Blue is 2.5 proteins (1 protein = 3 oz cooked beef; 5 oz cooked chicken; 1/2C egg beaters; 4 oz cooked fish; 4 oz cooked turkey; 4 oz canned tuna; 1 veggie burger, 2T RF peanut butter
2 la lites
So Amy, with the protein size drop on blue, I am re-thinking my advice to you and I agree that you should try red with lites again like you are doing.
Hope this helps.
