Default Question on Servings

I guess that's what you'd call it. I see in the food guide that they have the following listing for eggs:

Eggs,large, whole.........3 (up to 6 per week). What exactly does that mean? That three large, whole eggs are a single protien?

I'm soooo confunsused..

On an up note. I talked to them yesterday about the LA Lites and I have now been moved up to the Red Plan... without the LA Lites. Course I lose my guarantee, but heck... I'm not worried about that part.

JMK - yes three large eggs are one protien. They recommend you only have 6 total eggs for the week. I usually do hard boiled eggs (1 and 1/2) for 1/2 protien or use the egg substitutes. Sometimes I do egg salad without the bread

Whew! Thanks. That means that I can have half that hard boiled egg left in the office fridge in my salad today. I had one at mid morning along with a fruit. The fruits I get, and most things are pretty straight forward. Somethings however are really different... peanutbutter & jelly sandwich is 1 protien, but 1 slice of lite bread is a starch... like I say... I'm confused. LOL

Thanks again!

The jelly sandwich falls under carb cravers where they take into count the total amount of calories say and compare it to a serving size of meat. For example a vegetarian protien is 3 tbs peanut butter but on the carb craver pb&j you only would use 1 tbs

the carb cravers can be used for replacment proteins to get the carb cravings in. but try not to have more than a few a week.

I try to limit carbs as much as possible. I'm hoping I can keep that up. I've been the receipe section and found somethings I'm defiantely going to try. So much great information here.

I just started LAWL last week. I have eaten 1 and 1/2 tbs PB and 1 tbs sugar free jam on on piece of light bread twice now. I have been counting it as 1 starch, 1/2 protein and a condiment. Is this ok? No one at my center said anything.

There is a PB&J Carb craver that just counts as one protein...look in your guide, it should be there

Big bootie - it is perfectly fine to do it the way you are and count it like you do. I do it both ways!

it's probably better to do it the way you do cause its not so good to do a lot of carb cravers!

For Carb Cravers it would be 1 T of peanut butter. But as she is doing it and counting it 1 1/2 T would be 1/2 a protien.

Kaite on Blue and lower your protein sizes are smaller. I think you get more on the higher plans
