The recipe that I have has been posted in the newbie pages. It is a much much cheaper substitute for the LA Take Off juice which is $26/bottle. The bottle lasts 2 days. This recipe calls for Two bottles of Knudsen's Breakfast Blend juice (1 for each day). You mix 26 oz of juice, 6 oz of water, and 8 tsp of Benefiber or Fiber Sure. I paid about $3.50 for each bottle, so that is a total of $7.00 instead of $26.00 for the juice.

I am on the LA Express Diet, but mine is just the name for a special that they were running for $249 that they called LA Express, and it is just the weight loss portion of their program without the stabilization or maintenance. I have unlimited weeks to lose the weight. That is when the centers were using color coded plans, I am on the Red Plan. Now some of the centers have switched from color coded plans to a newer plan, and they are numbered. The first 4 weeks is the express plan which restricts the kind of protein and starch you are allowed. No beef and some other changes (they are on the thread somewhere) but then you get them back. think that is just to get your body burning calories and fat better. As I said, I am still on the color plan. I started about 1 month ago and have lost 17 pounds with about 80 to go.

Good luck, hope this helps.

Here is the page from the plan I have for calculating which plan you should be on depending on weight you need to lose and your age, activity level.
Healthy Females 28-65 years old:
ideal weight + 10 = green
Ideal weight + 25 = gold
Ideal weight + 60 = purple
Ideal weight + 80 = Red
Ideal weight + 100 = Red1

For Men - 18 years and older
Ideal weight + 70 Purple or red
Ideal weight + 100 = red
Do NOT drop below the purple plan

Activity greater than 5 hours a week, Male and Female
Ideal weight + 100 = Red
Ideal weight + 150 = Red1
Do NOT drop below the red plan.

Sorry, ran out of space in in the above post. If anyone needs the breakdown for the cardiac male and female, shift worker, male and female, senior female, just email me and i will post them too. This was from a couple of years ago and I am not sure if they changed any of these guidelines.

MTdebster921 Lea Ann posted this some time ago. Most of us do that do the Slimfast Optima also add a RF string cheese to make the protein counts a little more equal-

I did look on the Slimfast site for the shake breakdowns:

Low Carb / Optima / High Protein/ LA Slimdown/Atkins Advantage
Cal 190 / 190/ 190/ 270/ 170
Fat 9 / 6 / 5/ 5/ 9
Sodium 260 / 200/ 220/ 380/ 165
Carbs 6 / 5 / 24/ 36/ 5
Sugars 1 / 18 / 13/ 32/ 1
Protein 20 / 10 / 15/ 20/ 18
I have used a protein powder called WELLEMENTS PRO RATED
800-255-2690 or wellements.com
I like both flavors (chocolate and vanilla - my picky Mom and sister do too). It's lower in sodium and is protein packed compared with others I have seen, but is not pre-packaged in single serving sizes as it comes in a 6 pound bag.

Nutrition information of the Wellements Pro Rated:
Cal 135
Fat 1 gram
Sodium 52 mg
Carbs 4 grams
Sugars 2 grams
Protein 27 grams

TAKE OFF PROGRAM INSTRUCTIONS (LIMITED)

I bought two bottles of Knudsens Breakfast Blend juice (1 for each day). You mix 26 oz of juice, 6 oz of water, and 8 tsp of Benefiber.

FOR THE DAY:
6 oz. of the same protein
2c. raw GREEN veggies or 1c. cooked
2 LA Lites
16 oz. TO Juice (You add 16 oz. water to it)
no more than 2 6 oz. cups of caffienated coffee

The paper suggests this:

Breakfast - 2 oz. protein; 6 oz. coffee
Mid-Morning - LL; 6oz. coffee
Lunch - 2 oz. protein; 1C. green veggie
Mid-Afternoon - LL
Dinner - 2 oz. protein; 1C. green veggie

Here's specifically what I did:
Breakfast - 2 oz. chicken; 2c. Decaf Blueberry Herbal Tea w/1 pkt. Splenda
Mid-Morning - LL
Lunch - 2 oz. chicken; 1 c. romaine w/Wishbone Salad Spritzer (15 sprays)
Mid-Afternoon - LL
Dinner - 2 oz. chicken; 1 c. broccoli; 1 c. No Sodium Chicken Broth (this helped me to feel full and had 10 calories)

I broiled 2 chicken breasts with McCormick No-Salt chicken seasoning on Monday morning, and then I cut them into 2 oz. portions. For dinner, I added the same seasoning to the veggies and stir fried in Pam over the stove, and then added the 2 oz. chicken after the veggies had cooked a little, so that it was all heated together. And I added a little bit of No Sodium Chicken Broth to the mixture for some moisture and flavor
Is there a plan with liquids only?

I could not find the Knudsen juice at my local trader joe's so instead I bought the trader joes Dynamo Plus calcium juice....it tastes just like the LAWL take off juice did and it looks to be around the same amount of calorie intake as the TO juice was....has anyone tried this before?
