Growing up, I watched my mom go through every diet known to man. Low fat high carbs, high fat no carbs, shake diets, grapefruit diets, soup diets, diets with points, fasting, and on and on.
Guess what? They all worked.
But in the long run, the weight always came back and then some. All of these fad diets make big promises and deliver, but none of these diets are can sustain you and actually keep the weight off long term.
Being serious about losing weight doesn’t mean you have to give up enjoying the foods you love. Jenny Craig has more than 100 menu items, where 40 professional chefs make all the difference. You can pizza, pasta, and even desserts like cupcakes and chocolate cheesecake all delivered to your door! And if you do get tempted by dining out or indulging at a party, with the support of your dedicated, personal consultant to help you through life’s more ‘tempting’ situations, success is even easier. (Bonus: your Jenny Craig consultant can give you some alternate suggestions for how to maximize your plan in a way that meets your lifestyle and personal tastes like using the Jenny Craig shakes in place of coffee creamer.)
Jenny Craig can help you achieve your goals by developing a weekly menu that tells you exactly what you can eat and the foods to avoid for an entire week. There’s no calorie counting because your weekly menu will be based on the weight loss goals you shared with your Jenny Craig consultant and you’ll know exactly what’s on the menu everyday. I like that Jenny Craig uses a combination of prepackaged foods and allows you to combine those with fresh additions.
Having small kids and juggling multiple businesses and roles in the community, ensuring I eat like I should hasn’t always seemed possible. It’s so much easier to skip a meal or share a snack with the kids than it is to force myself to eat healthfully every few hours. If you think eating prepared foods will get boring, think again! The back of each meal box has suggestions to help you enhance your meal and give it a whole new flavor!
Instead of going through the drive-thru and attempting the healthiest option which could be loaded with hidden calories, you can make up your own salad or a piece of fruit to accompany your frozen meal. And, in your Jenny Craig booklet, you have all of the tools to know what to order and an appropriate serving sizes and even creating a meal plan on your own to allow you to make the most healthful choices to support your goals.
