Hi, caryllynnlee. Congratulations! If you have been on restrictive diets in the past, it will take a little while for your body to get used to normal, healthy amounts of food. Slow loss is the best, most permanent loss.
Note also that if you recently started being as active as you are now, you may be swapping fat for muscle, which is heavier – so pay more attention to how you are looking and feeling, and how your clothes are fitting.
If everything is stalling, please repost, and I will troubleshoot with you.

I am going into week 3 of this eating plan and have been really good about sticking to it. I do Pilates 4 times a week, am very active, but have only lost 2 pounds….1 per week. Is there something I should change in my plan?

Hi, caryllynnlee. We don’t generally work with calories in the normal low-carbohydrate route of this program, but rather with meeting your nutritional needs. I can tell you that each day, you are allotted 200 grams of carbohydrates (40% of energy), 112 grams of protein (22%), and 80 grams of fat (36%).
The amount of weight lost and rate of loss depends on the individual and key factors, including genetics, whether you’ve been on restrictive diets in the past, and how physically active you are. An average of 2 lbs a week is reasonable.

How do you find how many calories you are consuming per day and how many pounds per week is a reasonable loss.

I cant seem to find week 3 menu plan. I am still on week 2 but I am going on vacation for 10 days and would like to print out the 3rd week ahead of time to take with me. There is no link on week 3 page except start and it takes me right back to week 2.

Hi, tjcarter807, and welcome! The content is online. Take a look at the links at the top of each page, as well as the menu and “8-Week Plan” links on the homepage.

Hi, PaulaCarr. If you use the personal version of the Menu Planner application (access it by clicking on the “My Food Choices” icon in the toolbar above your current menu), you will see some of our recipes in the “Recipes” subcategory of each major food group. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu. It doesn’t need to be a perfect match to work.

I am going into week three and I am pleased that the plan is helping me lose weight but I can see that I will get too bored with the selections. I can’t find a way to include recipes on my plan. I found a lot of vegan recipes and they all look good but just using them any time or place on the plan could mess the balance for me. If I can’t resolve this I will have to unsubscribe as each week is practically the same.

Hi, Jerry. You can cut back on the starchy carbohydrates, if that helps.

Hi, NettyNoo. I’m sorry to read of your troubles here. I have forwarded your note to Customer Service. Someone will get back to you soon.

I have just tried again (been trying the best part of a week now) and spent a lot of time trying to complete my menu plan. When I click to save the information I keep getting the message that I have not selected enough fruit. I have clicked EVERY fruit icon but still I have not selected enough! I would like to cancel my subscription but cannot see how to stop further payments. Everything about this plan seems very complicated to ´move on´…
