Thanks in advance for the info!
My Center said they didn't have a Type II plan and that the regular plan is based on the food pyramid and exchange system and is the same as a diabetic diet plan. Always thought that was weird since they advertise a special plan. Why would they advertise this and then not have it???? I would also like to hear if others have been offered a diet specific for Diabetes. Thanks.

Still don't know why JC acts like there is a special Type 2 program. With all this being said, I haven't found any other diet program that caters to loosing weight and supports a Type II friendly menu.

I had noticed that JC is heavy on pasta, bread, rice and potatoes, things that the nutritionist told me to avoid to bring my blood sugar down. She told me to track my carbs, which is easy if I log everything into my BodyMedia account daily. I found it was impossible to stay under 100 g carbs if I ate all Jenny meals. So I made a chart for myself of which meals had 30g carbs and below. I also found a website that rated the nutritional value of Jenny foods & I removed a few that had a rating of D or F. Only 19 meals remained on my list. Here it is:
Breakfast scramble, mixed berry bar, sunshine sandwich, ranchero breakfast, florentine breakfast pizza, Blueberry pancakes, breakfast stuffed sandwich, mesquite chicken, salisbury steak, mashed potato & beef, chicken pasta parm, homestyle chicken casserole, spaghetti & meatballs, chicken sandwich, chicken/corn chowder, beef chili w/ beans, turkey chili, chicken fettucini, tortellini soup. If there's any bread, potato, rice or pasta in the meal I just eat about 3/4 of that item. I throw the 1/4 away & don't even put it on my plate.
I also bought some Boost Glucose Control drinks that I occasionally substitute for breakfast or lunch. I limited fruit to 2 servings and eat a lot of veggies (except corn, of course). I've been back to Jenny 5 weeks now. The first 3 weeks I was just ordering what I liked and was losing only ounces per week. The last two weeks I have been ordering these and drinking the Boost occasionally. My first week only this plan I lost 4.5 lbs.
I don't expect to see this kind of loss every week, but it was very encouraging and I know I'm on the right track. I hope that see a nice drop in my health numbers when I go back in 5 months for a re-test.

I learned several years ago that there is no one-size-fits-all where diabetes is concerned. Some diabetics take oral meds, some insulin, and some able to manage their diabetes with diet and exercise only. There are also differences in how we react to certain foods. The Jenny Craig plan is very well balanced and if you look at the labels you will see that the exchanges meet most meal planning guidelines. This being said, each person with diabetes on JC has to do some experimenting to see how they react to certain foods. We are not all the same. For instance, I have found that the cereals are no-no's for me. With the added milk, the carbs are much too high for me and my blood sugars soar. Some of the breads/sandwiches can have the same effect, but not always. Once I did some testing after eating different JC foods I was able to cross some off my list and only order those that won't make my sugars jump. You will probably need to do the same.
I think the way the program advertises JennyType2 is misleading and should probably be eliminated. We are not really getting any special education or advice from our JCC, in fact I have spent more time educating the consultants at my center. Just my opinion.
Memorial Day Challenge Goals: 4/21 - 5/31
My Goal is to lose 5-7 lbs by Memorial Day
Week 1: have lost 0.6 lbs this week
Week 2: up 2.2 lbs !
Challenge Total Lost =

I have been given a copy of a diabetes plan from my center. It is basically the same foods.
the only difference is that instead of some of the milk portions, they have you choose a lean meat (ie string cheese)
etc or something like that with a bit more protein.

yes I am Confused.. can someone plse explain the difference between a regular plan and type 2 plan?

The Type 2 plan is a little different. My husband was on it and there were some desserts and the anytime bars that he could not eat because of the sugar content.

I just joined yesterday and was given a 114 page book for the Type 2 JC. I also received the weekly menu that has 1300calorie Type 2 on it. Main difference compared to regular plan is no anytime bars and select snack items. I'm encouraged.

I am doing the T2 program and there are some JC foods that are not allowed,and I get 1300 cals. instead of 1200. The difference is I get more protein with meals and snacks which keeps blood sugar down. It is working beautifully for me,my fasting blood sugar this a.m. was the lowest it's been in a very long time!! Diane

I just started the JC program and am on a Type 2 plan with 1300 calories. There are foods on the regular program that are not on the Type 2 program such as cupcakes and some of the meals.

You can find a copy online of the Type 2 plan. Under "shop" select "quick order form." At the top of the page there is a link for "View Menus." I found them on the second page. Your center should also be able to print these up if they don't have them already.
