Jenny Craig has been a platform for me to stay on track of my diet and steadily loose weight. I have found it a healthy and sustainable way for me to meet my goals. With the help of a personal consultant who speaks honestly and open to help me battle the emotional side of eating. I feel happier eating Jenny Craig food than starving myself or consumed in loads of time preparing complicated meals that are tasty and balanced. The food is tasty and varied and I can concentrate and focus on other areas weight loss for example exercise and issues with eating out at social events. Overall I have found Jenny Craig the only diet that works for me and we are lucky to have such a product on the market.

Whilst its quite a lot of money to put out it was definitely worth it. I've tried on and off for more than 30 years but am now at my lowest weight since I was in my twenties do for me it was a good investment. Overall I lost 2 stones. I found the telephone support good and it helped to keep me on track . The food whilst not gourmet was quite edible and if eaten with veg or salad as revommended was filling . Having the snacks in between meals also stopped me from being hungry. Would do it again .

I originally found out about Jenny when I was living back home in California from my Mom who did the program and lost loads of weight. From there I decided to join and do it with her and in 6 short months lost 60 pounds!! But, however when I hit my goal weight I was promoted to the UK a week later and to no fault of my own over 4 years gained it all back and when I started the program again in the UK I had stepped on a scale in years and ironically I started Jenny again in the UK at the same weight I did the 1st time I was with Jenny. I am happy to report I am heading back in the right direction and since starting the program in February I have lost 32 pounds!! The Jenny program I have always found to be easy and never struggled with it and never really find myself hungry. Us guys are good at following instructions and the program works with my busy work life. Jenny tells me what to eat everyday and I just eat it. Nothing special just follow instruction with a little exercise and you are on your way. Thank you for all the support through the process and for keeping me in check with my weekly support calls. 56 more pounds to go to hit my goal weight and I predict I will hit it by end of the summer. Then it will be an amazing beach holiday for me!! Cheers Jenny!!

Target reached with good food and great support. Maintenance is now the most important aspect for me and Jenny Craig through Alex my consultant is helping me to stay on track.
I would recommend Jenny Craig as a weight loss program that works and I am qualified to say so having tried the majority of the others before with much less success.

I don't enjoy the food, I am not loosing wait.. and I am getting more illness now than when I started the diet.
Review by Ramnam6 years ago
The understanding relayed by my weekly consultation gave me a real understanding of what I was striving for and showed me the way!
My mobility problems enthasised that this programme could be the answer to many people that suffer from dabilitating illness i.e,arthritis,back problems not to say the obvious current health problem of this nation, obesity.

Being on Jenny Craig has literally changed my life. I have become the best version of myself and have reached goals I never thought possible. My personal consultant Claire has been a key part of my experience, with her guidance and continued support I feel that there is nothing I can't accomplish in life.

Whilst Jenny Craig is pretty nifty in the sense you can just grab your packet food and go - for me it got kinda irritating to spend day after day heating foor from a packet. I did the plan for 4 months and in that time I went from excited about a new diet to really dreading my evening meal of packet food.
The food itself isn't wonderful, there are some meals which are pleasantly tasty but generally they don't deliver that home cooked, fresh flavour which is a tad disappointing - but given the meal comes in a packet it has to be preserved somehow!
My consultant was ok I suppose but not fantastic. I never got the sense she really cared about how I was progressing or what was happening in my life (like I thought she would), she was just very focused on getting my weight, telling me to stick to the plan, say a few generic lines of praise then book my slot for the following week. There were 3 occassions she was away and her stand-in phoned, I wish her stand-in had been permanent! She was really easy to have a conversation with and I actually felt motivated after chatting with her, so I suppose it's hit and miss.
In terms of weight loss, I didn't get anywhere really. I lost 5lbs in 4 months but I have my own medical issues affecting weightloss so it's probably not fair to blame too much of that on JC.
Overall I would recomment Jenny Craig to someone who doesn't eat fresh food that often at the minute and so doesn't really appreciate what they are going to be missing!!

food is good and you feel full. your consultant is great and understands you. very helpful if you are having problems and helps you when you are feeling low.
Review by Shashonna Munschauer6 years ago
Some of the food (lamb hotspot) was DISGUSTING. I took photos of the meat because it was fat not meat. I provided feedback and the advisor said I didn't have to order it next time - but what about the meals I missed out on???
The program was expensive and not flexible. It left me feeling hungry and therefore I over ate and gained weight.
The advisor was always in a rush to finish our weekly call and I didn't get any inspiration.
Would not recommend the program.

I think the chap who was my mentor, was lovely and helpful but the food was overpriced and not very nice.
Review by Osagie Laurinaitis6 years ago
I've lost 21 lbs in 2 months. It's great for me so easy and I haven't felt hungry at all. The food is nice and filling. I have lost every week even though I have still kept a social life. I would recommend jenny craig to anyone.

Review by Garianne Karkoulis6 years ago
Well it certainly suits me. I love the food, everything made so easy to follow. I am 63 and followed diets all my life but NEVER found one that actually worked for me like Jenny Craig. Full marks. Even took my breakfasts, lunches and snacks on holiday to Tenerife with me. Worked perfectly. Have lost 8 llbs, feel great and excited to get to goal weight. Found all the service very efficient, consultant great.
The whole system and accompanying correspondence is so easy to follow and well laid out. Have just opened my half way paper work and the one thing I was worried about planning my own meals is laid out in sample menu before me. I get put off by diets that give you choices and sample recipes, I just don't do it but this is made so easy. Get quite excited when my box of meals arrived, will miss that. Thank you so much.

I am on my second month of the jenny craig diet plan, having lost 1 stone in the first month. I am over the moon with my results and hope to lose more weight before finishing the plan. The meals are tasty and I enjoy them all. They are ready to eat only need warming and for me this makes the difference between sticking to the diet and not.

When I started on Jenny Craig I wasn't sure it was for me, but the fact that my waistline is now 4 inches smaller and I can run up the stairs without getting out of breath, and my Husband looks at tme with a glint in his eye again, I was very wrong, it deffinatley was for me and I am so glad that I did it.

Only in my 3rd week at present but so far so good. Weekly chats keep me spurred on at the moment and motivated. Will see how it goes.
Review by Amarik6 years ago
I've enoyed the food, its 90% tasty with some of the hotter meals a bit too spicy for my taste but thats me not the food. its easy to follow & you can have as little or as much support by their paper system as you want, I tend to ignore all that & follow the daily meal plan, have my weekly conversation & thats what works for me,
Review by Zkava6 years ago
I thought Jenny Craig was quite good but weren't too keen on some of the food but some food were really tasty and you was always got the support you needed.

Review by Nhat Turker6 years ago
A really good experience when I started the programme, I felt completely cared for and lost weight down to my goal weight. I learnt lessons that I will take with me and will use in the future. The great points were the weekly calls, although as you move through the programme I felt this not as necessary (everyone is different though). The food is good, nutritious and very easy to follow. Unlike some I didn't find the food expensive and instead about as expensive as a good shop - fruit and veg is not cheap these days, so it was not off putting. Some of the wording on the sheets given were American which didn't make sense to a UK audience - Squash for example is different in the UK to the US. These were talked through with my advisor, but for the price you pay I am sure that these could be looked at and rephrased for the audience it is intended for.
The points I didn't like were the fact that although I may have discussed with my advisor that I didn't like a particular food, that if my preference was out of stock I was given an alternative - sometimes that very item I asked not to have. There were no calls to check prior to sending.
When you started to have days on your own there were no menu's provided to assist in the early days. Its quite a shift moving from food that has been provided to you to food you then cook yourself and as this is the basis of your future it would be great to not make this scary and intimidating.
When you reach your goal weight, there has been no guidance as to what calorie level I should be at now. What I should be eating and not written confirmation other than this survey to suggest I have reached my goal. I do feel as through I have made it and now its up to me but do think some advisory notes and some guidance as to what I should do from now would have helped.
Overall its something that I would suggest people do if they are stuck and need something to focus on, but as to long term weight loss that is still to be determined as I do feel there is nothing to guide you at the end.

Review by Anony Ekse6 years ago
Couldnt believe I lost a total of 2 stone with Jenny Craig, in time for a wedding.
Not just any wedding...
39 years ago I gave birth to a daughter but decided to give her up for adoption, having only known her father for a short time. I never regretted my decision.
31 years later she got in touch with me. I had married and divorced her father, but had had another daughter 5 years her junior.
April 2013 saw her get married, her father and I were guests and my younger daughter was a bridesmaid.
Well, I couldnt go there not looking my best, could I?
