I'm 6 weeks in & have been progressing on Plan 2. Today the counselor tells me that it is time to change to Plan 1 which makes me nervous since Plan 2 has been working and also Plan 1 seems to have much less food - yikes! Plan 2 is: 2.5p 3v 2f 3s 2d 2f & 2 bars and Plan 1 is only: 2p 2v 2f 2s 1d 1f & 2 bars. So they want me to give up 1/2 a protein, 1 veg, 1 starch, 1 dairy & 1 fat. Logically that does not even seem like enough food for all day. Further, I almost never get my 2nd bar in as I don't really like them very much in fact there is only 1 flavor I ever get. Anyone have suggestions on what they would do?? Thanks!

If it is working and you are not plateauing, why are they changing it? I so don't understand our center. Talk to "S" about this. I don't think they have a clue half the time. I am really thinking I should eat much less food than they give me. I am nowhere near the amount I should be losing per week (2 pounds....more like a pound a week. I think they just want to get your money mostly.(Can you blame them?)..........I am happy that I have made more progress with this than I did when I tried dieting on my own. I am still well ahead. It has taken me 9 months to lose what I previously lost in one year.......

They said that they want to make the change now to get "ahead" of the plateau that will definitely come - yeah, very encouraging of her right! Rolling Eyes Well, I'm going to WI tomorrow and see what happens, I did not change yet, I stayed with my Plan 2. I do want to try to see "S" and tell her that if "WE" decide to move forward with changing to Plan 1 then I want to know what my portions would be if I was not doing the bars. Looking at how little you get to eat on Plan 1 with doing the bars I would rather have more real food and skip them since I feel like I have to force them down. Thanks much for the advice Very Happy

When I originally started this program I started on what was referred to gold. On that plan you ate 2 proteins, 3 veggies, 3 fruits, 2 starches, 1 dairy, 1 fat and 2 lites. The amount of protein was sufficient as well as the other food. Your current weight was what I started at. I don't know what plan 1 looks like, but if you choose to not do the lites, you should get more food. Do what's best for you and your body. If anything you'll switch if you need too.

Protein
Don't reduce fats, or at least the healthy ones. Just get rid of processed/refined carbs, they are useless to your body anyway and are extra calories you don't need.

Don't spend the money - do it youself if you can get ahold of the diet plan.
