Jenny Craig offers several plans for weight loss programs. Is it a fad diet?
In this author's personal opinion having been on this weight loss program, it is not a fad diet.
The meals are prepackaged and well balanced with a big selection of entrées, snacks and desserts.
You are required to eat the prepackaged foods during the first half of your weight loss.
As you approach your weight loss goal, they will help you transition into preparing your own food.
This weight loss program is now offered to you "at home" with delivery directly to your door.
The centers have weekly scheduled one-on-one consultations with their trained counselors. They do have over 640 centers in the USA and Canada.
At home offers weekly scheduled phone consultations from your home, office, or a location of your choice.
This is convenient if you aren't close to one of the centers or are just to busy to attend a center.
They will deliver every 2 weeks or 4 weeks directly to your home. The online support provides 24/7 message boards and live chat for support if you want it.
They provide eTools such as online menu planner, a journal to track food intake, record your physical activity and to keep a daily log.
Jenny Craig offers well balanced meals, snacks and desserts and they now have over 80 foods to choose from.
For various reasons such as "boosting metabolism" and "preventing hunger and cravings," you will eat three meals and three snacks each day.
They do offer nutritional supplements but you can buy your own. Nutritional supplements are important for women's health.
They offer several programs which include the Jenny Direct at-home program, a program for men, a program for Type 2 Diabetes, Jenny Craig Silver, and Jenny Craig for teens.
Most include the following
Note: Not available at all Centers.
They also have Special "Internet Only" offers.
As far as "cons" on this weight loss program, I don't personally feel there are any. As far as the cost, you are paying for well balanced meals and convenience.
This isn't a "fad diet" or a "quick weight loss" program. You will have to do your part for it to work as in any program.
Their consultants assist you in transitioning from the prepackaged stage to preparing your own food based on relationship to food.
