I finished the TO using the Knudsen's juice and lost 4 pounds.I am so excited.Now I have a question.Could somebody look at my breakfast for this morning and see if the servings seem ok?I am doing the purple plan.

Breakfast:

6 oz. of light yoplait yogurt (D)
1tsp of butter (F)
1/2 a small lenders Bagel (S)
About 4 oz. Knudsen's juice (F)
Peanut Butter 1 Tbs. (P)
Is this an Ok breakfast or am I setting myself up for disaster.I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to break up the servings during the day.When I was on MRC it was very structured and you got this this and this for breakfast ,lunch and dinner and did not stray.Also can you substitute protein drinks or shakes for a fruit serving? Thanks for any help given.

personally after a TO I find if I eat light choices and starchy veggies rather than actual starches.. the weight stays off much better. Not sure if anyone else notices that... I can't eat ANY kind of bread AT ALL or I gain.. might be my body type though. I stick to oatmeal and grapefruit (rather than juice as I need the fiber) for most breakfasts with some changes throughout the week for variety. I would only substitute a protein shake for 1 meal every couple of days and count it as a protein, dairy and starch (and fruit if you throw in a banana or strawberry or something...), or in a pinch I have substituted the same caloric intake as a lite. You seem to have all your portions right.. Try a few days of things and adjust accordingly if you don't see a loss. GREAT START!!!! WELCOME aboard!

Lori, As long as you have a good plan for what exchanges you are going to have for your snacks and your lunch and dinner, then you are fine. It is crucial for me to have a plan, so I know what I have left to eat. I tend to eat very close to the same exchanges every day. That way I only have to mentally track the changes... so it is deduct one starch from dinner since I had cereal for breakfast. Lately I've been having cereal with half a cup of milk for breakfast and then in the afternoon I get a tall coffee misto nonfat from starbucks... only 66 calories!
