There's another thread going on this already. I mentioned before that the only helpful was that it teaches you how to eat portion sizes and be mindful of fats, calories, etc. which is something you probalby already know. The whole concept is based on behavior modification. I also did not like that they don't give you the "guarrantee" unless you use their prodcuts (i.e. bars). The staff make commissions off that too so I found there to be alot of presure to buy their products. It does help some, but my own opinion is that you can measure porition sizes at homes, buy two balance bars at the grocery store to replace their bars, and do the same thing. I think this program probalby works better for those who are compulsive eaters and have zero self discipline.
I lost11 lbs on it but I didn't need to lose more than 15 so for me it was successful. I found in the long run I kept my weight off by eating what I wanted daily but just using the correct portion sizes. I've mentioned it on the boards here before that for me the key is asking myself WHY I need to eat 12 cookies instead of a portion size of 3. But then again, I'm a psychologist so I tend to look at more of the behavioral aspects of why I do things!!
If you are someone who has zero self discipline and want to spend the money on the program, then it might work for you. Menina
Hi everyone.....I love this message board (just found it about a week ago) and especially this topic. My husband and I just booked our first cruise for May 5, 2007, to Alaska - can't wait! I was wondering if anyone is going through the LA Weight Loss program currently? If so, how is anyone doing on the plan? Thanks in advance to any/all responses.
