Default LAWL Menu Plan Drop Sequence

Since many of the centers have closed recently I figured this may be a good time to post this information up. This is the menu plan that you would follow based on different height's and weights. Age no longer matters on the newer menu plans. These are for programs WITH LA Lites, if you are not using them or any form of substitute for them then you would go to the next plan up. If your weight is within five pounds from being on the next menu plan down go ahead and start on that one. This is the drop sequence for women, male plan is a little different.


Plan One
5= 133 lbs. or less
5'1= 135 lbs. or less
5'2= 138 or less
5'3=141 or less
5'4= 144 or less
5'5= 147 or less
5'6= 150
5'7= 153
5'8= 156

Plan One:
2 Proteins
2 Veggie
2 Fruit
2 Starch
1 dairy
1 fat
2 LA Lite

Plan Two:
5= 134-173 lbs
5'1= 136-175 lbs.
5'2= 139-178 lbs
5'3 = 142-181 lbs.
5'4 = 145-184 lbs.
5'5 = 148-187 lbs.
5'6= 151-190
5'7 = 154-193
5'8 = 157-196
5'9 = 160-199

Plan Two consists of:
2.5 proteins
3 veggies
2 fruits
3 starches
2 dairy
2 fat
2 la lites

Plan Three
5'0 = 174-223
5'1 = 176-225
5'2 = 179-228
5'3 = 182-231
5'4 = 185-234
5'5= 188-237
5'6= 191-240
5'7= 194-223
5'8= 197-246
5'9= 200-249

Plan three
3 proteins
4 veggies
3 fruits
4 starches
2 dairy
2 fat
2 la lites

Plan Four
*if you are at a weight higher than the menu three guidelines then your menu will consist of:

3.5 proteins
5 veggies
4 fruit
5 starches
3 dairy
2 fat
2 la lites

You can drop to the next menu preferably within 5 lbs. To break a plateau you can do what is known as "take off 2." You follow it for two consecuitve days and for the entire two days you will ONLY eat unlimited green (cooked or raw) vegetables, 6 oz. of cooked protein and 2 la lite bars. If you have take off juice you will use 4 oz. of to juice with 4 oz. of water 4 times each day for two days. If you do not have the juice you may use 1/4 of a cantaloupe or 1/2 of an orange or grapefruit for each serving of juice. Stick to the condiments out lined in your FTL menu kit but really up your water intake. Coming off take off limit high sodium foods and red meat for the first three days. I've found that Take off 1 (just the juice, mean and green veggies works best if you have fallen off the wagon however)

Some suitable replacements are SBD high protein cereal bars, luna bars and the smaller detour low sugar bars, snicker maraton bars (ones containing 160 cals). As for your slim down shakes look for protein shakes that contain at least 20 grams of protein and less than 250 calories. A suitable replacement for Jet Starts are Monster LoBall coffee flavored energy drinks, most convenient stores carry them.

That's great Andrea, the women on my family have started to use this seeing as how they are not willing to get involved with such an unstable company with the CODs closing like crazy. I'm just curious if someone has the one info for males, as it would really help me to know when to change plans since the COD closed. Thanks.

**If you are following the plan and are breast feeding and you are the child's sole source of nourishment then you need to add 1 protein, 1 starch, 1 dairy and 1 fat to your menu plan**


I have the drop sequence for males as well. I'll scan it tomorrow and post it up because it's a lot to retype. I'll also see if I can get the new FTL menu kit to scan since there was some questions on that.

Well I would start on plan 3 I guess. The plan I bought is the color plans which would have me on red for a short while then drop to purple...I'm not sure whether to do colored or numbered plans!? I know the portion sizes are different on them....anyone else have any thoughts on which plans are easier to follow or more successful?

IMHO the numbered plans are easier to follow. As far as what works better that's up to you. The colors worked great if they were followed to a T without carbcravers and they were very challenging as far as dining out. I saw better success with clients keeping their weight off that lost it on the numbered plans though. Calorie wise it's about the same thing. I think the numbered plans make more sense from a nutritional standpoint though.

Yup, protein is the cooked weight, if you weigh it raw just add one ounce. As far as the exchanges go I'm going to try to scan the FTL infor.

On the numbered plans, what the protein weights? I've always followed purple plan, but could be enticed to switch.

South Beach Diet. Here's a link, they are really good!

You can find them in any grocery store though so I wouldn't buy them off line unless you find a really good deal.
