No, I never followed it. It is geared toward a very American style of eating which doesn't work for me.

The nutritional goals were a more useful tool for me.

I think that the existence of the food plan is good thing though for people who have no idea where to start.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I find that following a prescribed food plan too stringent. Half the foods are things I don't eat and substituting is too much trouble. I just eat what I want and like in moderation. I use my food scale to eat one or two servings and track my intake so that I stay within 1,200 calories. It works for me so I'm happy. In two weeks I've lost 6 pounds

Always a lesson, never a mistake.
One day at a time.

I do not follow spark people's food plan. I have been gluten free for 3 years due to celiac disease. I went grain,sugar/artificial sweetener, soy, and GMO free on Nov 23, and I am doing wonderful with this way of eating.

Following a LCHF way of eating since November 23, 2013.
This woe is the first thing that has truly made sense and worked for me. Having great success with it.

Lol...I never knew there was a food plan.

I agree with Russell, it's probably to help people who don't know where to start.

SP has a lot of nice tools.

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

I'm guessing the SP food plan.

No, I read it on Day 1, and noticed that some of the small servings were never repeated. Since I am eating by myself, what would I do with the rest of the food? That, plus the fact that I was already down 95 lbs. eating a controlled carbohydrate diet, led me to switch it off, and make my own meals about 30 minutes after joining SP.

I think it is there more as an example for those who do not have a plan, or even an idea of what they should be eating. Just another tool for our use, and we can use it if we need it. I do think that most of us would stray from the meal plans as we got a firmer grasp on eating healthier anyways. So the suggestions are kind of like training wheels. Great when you need them, but able to be removed when you are ready.

That is what I do. I have to eat what I like. Or else I feel deprived and then I binge

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I don't, it felt to much like a diet for me, I do track everything I eat and stay within the recommended range (98% of the time) though.
