Is the LA Weight Loss Plan effective?

I was on the LA Weight Loss Diet and I reached my goal of 135 lb, but slowly, I began to put the weight back on, and so I went back to it without eating the Lites because I didn't like them. I wasn't losing the weight so I switched to just counting calories. Why did it work before and not now? Is counting calories a better way than the LA Weight Loss plan?
The LA Weight Loss Plan is a moderate low calorie diet with appropriate portions of high-protein, low fat foods. As a newcomer, you followed the diet enthusiastically and lost weight, but when you tried for a second time, you probably didn't give it your best shot or last as long. But the LA Plan is not magic; it is just a low calorie diet like you can follow with Calorie Count. But Calorie Count also provides opportunities to eat in the real world and to get support from other members in the forums and groups. Plan a simple diet, log your foods and count your calories to show yourself that you can lose weight by counting calories. (FYI: In January, 2008, LA Weight Loss went out of business, closing down 400 centers in the U.S.)
