Default Tofu weight please

I read that tofu is allowed but when I went to weigh it up there are no figures given for the correct weight I am meant to it sits alone waiting to be carved...any ideas?
Heaviest to lightest - 117kg - 57.5kg (59.5kg)
2008 Cohen's Graduate (lost 37.9kg) finished @ 57.5kg
2010 Cohen's Graduate (lost 16kg) finished at 58kg
Mind~body~spirit approach is my winning formula

Goal 1: Under 80kg (done 4.5.13) Goal 2 - 75kg, Goal 3 Under 70kg, Goal 4 - normal BMI 65.8kg!! Goal 4 - final goal 65 - 62kg and start refeed

it is the same with all protiens - you will have a different weight combination to balance your insulin.

Check with your clinic as to how much, how many veges and what meal you are allowed to have it.
for example i can only have it at meal 2, and i have 110g tofu with 105g veges.....

Did you ask for Tofu? Is it in your programme???

It's not an immediate inclusion, it's an option. At the bottom of your enrolment form there was a question that said "Are you a vegetarian", next to that it says "If you're NOT a vegetarian, would you like Tofu as an option".

LOTS of people seem to skim over the word 'not' and don't answer it because they think it starts "if you're a vegetarian...". If that option isn't chosen, Dr Cohen doesn't include Tofu in your programme.

Firstly check your programme to see if Tofu is on there, and if it's not call your clinic on Monday and confirm whether you ticked the Tofu option. If you DID tick it, and it's NOT on your plan, there's a possibility Dr Cohen will re-write your programme. If you didn't tick it, then, see if you can freeze tofu for when you're finished the programme.

Hope that helps.

Hexi2, same thing happened to me. My clinic said that because I didn;t tick 'vegetarian' that they didn't give me tofu as an option. It was listed on the main list because that page is the same as everyone elses, however it is the meal 1, 2 , 3 page that is customised for you. Also, there is no chance that we can get tofu added after they have developed the initial program. So no tofu for you or me........but check with your clinic, I'd love to hear whether you got the same story.
