Lightbulb To anyone on purple or gold plans...

They moved me to purple this week!!!

So, I guess the good news is that I am losing weight. However, they moved me to purple this week, so I lose my 1/2P an 1S. THAT SUCKS!

Anyhoo... I was hoping that some of you on either purple or gold could share with me some sample day menus so I can get an idea of how to break up the exchanges. The 1/2P and 1S was my whole breakfast! I have a few ideas for mixing things up, but seeing what y'all are doing would sure help!

Thanks, chickies!

Cassi--I am on Gold (except trying Blue this week--love the extra starch and 1/2 protein but my scale isn't!)

Anyway, a pretty typical day for me is:
Breakfast:
coffee/creamer
yogurt (D)
apple (F)

Mid AM:
Lite (L)

Lunch:
turkey (or tuna) sandwich (PSS)
baby carrots (V)
fruit (F)

Mid PM:
Lite or shake (L)
fruit (F)

Dinner:
chicken breast (P)
salad (VV)
dressing (fat)

We've been eating pretty late so I don't usually have a snack at night but if I am hungry I will have a light string cheese or celery --they've never said anything about the extra since there isn't much to them. Since I've been on Blue this week I've counted the string cheese as my 1/2 protein and I sometimes have a piece of toast for breakfast or a rice cake. I try to have all my starches before dinner (if possible) and just since friday moved a fruit to lunch since we are trying not to have them at night. I've been stuck a LONG time so I may not be the best person to ask. Are you doing the Lites?

Julieann - Purple and gold are the same exchanges, just the protein size is a little more. So for the day I get 1D, 1Fa, 3Fr, 4V, 2S 2P, plus 2 lites.

Thanks for any suggestions!

I am on purple and rarely eat my protein at breakfast unless it is a 1/2 p. then I have the other 1/2 at lunch. Like a fried egg on a bagel for breakfast then egg salad from 2 eggs at lunch. I usually have my fruit and dairy or maybe a starch for my b-fast.

Here's a day from last week:

breakfast-DF
coffee/splenda/creamer
8 oz. ff yogurt
1 c. fresh blueberries

snack-F
small apple
lite bar

lunch-PVVFS
taco salad w/ ground turkey
turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, 1 small LC tortilla

snack-F
cherries

dinner-PSVV
grilled fish
1/3 c. brown rice
1/2 c. cooked broccoli
1/2 c. cooked cauliflower

Thanks a lot, guys. I really appreciate the help.

If anyone else would like to add a sample days (or more) menu here, please feel free. I can use all the help and ideas I can get!

Purple was a big challenge for me to get used to - it took a week or so to adjust to the loss of the 1/2P and S. One thing that the COD consistently told me (and here in lies the struggle) is to not split up the protein types. If you have a half P of peanut butter in the morning, have the other half in peanut butter at lunch or for mid-am snack. They bumped me back up to red when I stopped doing the lites, but I expect to move to purple in the next couple weeks or so. In anticipation of that, I rarely have a protein for breakfast.

The starches are harder for me. I like a bagel or english muffin for breakfast, which really messes me up if I want a sandwich at lunch or something. I am trying right now to wean myself of a starch with dinner. It will take more planning on my part, because we are sooooo busy, we eat fast food a lot. Trying to plan for those nights when I may want a burger.... sigh.
