I noticed that too. Did you see that there is a new revised $50 book. Im sorry but all this has kind of put me out. Especially when I saw the video of our Guru all suntanned on his boat telling us we needed to buy his new and improved $50 book or the plan wont work.


Maybe I should just change my user name to Old & Crabby

Heh - yes. I don't need to buy that book. We know the plan works, and if a person sticks with it and then eats well afterward the benefits of the program will remain. When I commented to my coach that the product had gotten more expensive she replied, "It's not an expense...it's an investment in your health."

I knew that was scripted. The problem is that I don't HAVE an extra minimum $18.00 to spend on the plan per month. The money has to come from somewhere and I just don't have it. They are going to make it a program that the average person can't afford.

I'll join you in the Old & Crabby Club. haha But more slender! haha

I do agree the plan works and if you eat well afterward the benefits will remain. That's going to be the hard part. Keeping it off.

"It's not an expense...it's an investment in your health." Yep Ive heard that one. Also "Its not a diet. Its a lifestyle"

Even if I had the extra cash I don't want to be dependent on their "fuelings".
According to my group even in maintenance you should be eating 3 a day. Forever. Anybody that says the cant afford it gets dinged by the group. especially if they mention cheaper alternatives.

That's not what I signed up for. My take was that all this weighing and measuring was to teach you proper nutrition So that after you reached your goal you would be able to eat real food.

Speaking of food. Do we have a maintenance thread on here?

Humph. Yep - I don't plan to be buying the product forever either. I have found a few alternative protein sources, such as SunWarrior and BuiltBar that are less expensive when I'll want to have something either than a regular meal. It is difficult to find protein sources that aren't full of carbs and calories, so it has taken me a bit to find them. I mentioned the SunWarrior to my first coach and she indicated that since it wasn't approved by nutrition support that I needed to buy product instead. Nope. I understand they want to sell but it does get a bit tiresome.

I don't think I've seen an active thread on maintenance.

Ive been looking for alternative stuff too. I haven't tried SunWarrior but I do have some Built bars. I also like Protein One bars. I like Built bars best when I put them in the freezer for a minute to firm them up a little.

I found some tortillas that I like. They make great little faux pizzas. I crisp them in my toaster oven. Then I add cheese and toppings and put them back in to melt the cheese. OLE Mexican Foods Xtreme Wellness Tortilla wraps. One tortilla 50 calories 1.5 fat 16 carb 4 protein 310 sodium

I like the tomato and the spinach ones best.

I see we have some general maintenance threads on here but nothing specific.

I have also put the Built bars in the freezer. If you keep them in there they are still pliable to eat. Makes me take my time. Ha.

I've been rather amazed at many of the L&G recipes that lots of folks use. Many have cheese in them. I know it's low-fat cheese, but it's still cheese. I like a really sharp cheddar so I don't bother with the low fat stuff. To me it's just added fat and calories with very little taste. Ha.

I drink the SunWarrior shake with water, but I think it would be good in Almond drink or in a smoothie.

Those tortilla wraps look interesting! I haven't eaten a thing that's remotely like bread for nearly 8 months. I've been interested in cauliflower pizza shells, but those things are horribly expensive. I'll have to learn to make my own.

I haven't tried this recipe. I do not care for cauliflower pizza crust. Or chicken crust pizza. I do a crustless pizza or I use the tortillas.

Cheese isn't bad if you don't overdo it. Its on the meatless/vegetarian list along with cottage cheese, eggs, egg beaters, ricotta, etc. I don't care for the faux burgers. Jimmy Dean precooked turkey sausage patties and crumbles are really good though. Crumbles 4oz has 90 calories 5 fat 2 carb 10 protein 480 sodium. Two patties have 100 calories 7 fat 1 carb 11 protein 420 sodium.
