I have been a member of JC since April 2010 and I have to tell you, I am now really struggling with my JC foods. I am sooooo sick of eating the same thing all the time. I have tried everything that is available and I am so disgusted that hardly anything new has been introduced and kept on the menu. I am ready to just throw in the towel and do it on my own. I think the people who design the menus should have to eat the JC menu for at least 3-6 mos and maybe they would know what it's like to be a member. I don't even want to go to the center and pick up my food. I find myself sinking back into my old habits of only eating 2 meals a day since I am not looking forward to eating anymore. I have tried doing things on my own as well, but strangely enough it seems that I have lost my taste for "real" food (which I guess isn't all that bad). I just can't wait until my membership is up. I should have stopped after the original 6 mos. Very dissatisfied.

I too am tired of the choices. I gag after trying to eat half of the options... just cant eat the same stuff for months and months.. never mind a year! My weight loss has now stopped because I cant eat the food. Thanks

This happened to me too. I am down to two lunch choices and two dinner choices that I can stil stomach. I eat my own breakfasts and snacks. But I have been doing DOMO and MOMO instead, and doing fine with that. I figure I kind of am preparing for maintenance early.

There are also gazillions of frozen dinners that are 1/3 the price and taste just as good and have similar nutritional profiles. I have been enjoying some of the Smart Ones. That makes for a nice change.

I have just 10 more pounds to go. As soon as I hit my goal, I am going to stop Jenny.

Gotta agree with you. They need to rotate the foods on a monthly if not every two month basis. Better quality foods as well.

check out the under 300 calorie recipes on hungrygirl.com I actually downloaded the recipe book from amazon to my kindle and use that for nights JC just doesn't look good.

We've all been there but if you're willing to put in some work to make your meals something different, then you can do this. I did! :)

I'm going to give you two links to some very successful folks who have been on Jenny who put together some recipes for changing up the JC meals.

The recipes are great and with a little effort, you'll not only be able to lose the weight and keep it off, but you'll also really ENJOY all of your meals - I promise! :)

I haven't been on Jenny for long but I don't think I will have much of a problem with the foods becoming boring.

Just with the Broccoli/Cheese Baked Potatoes.....I have had 3 so far and changed the flavor each time with my addins. I never have had much trouble with eating the same food, ever. If I like it, I can eat it over and over again indefinately.

Now, my time with Nutrisystem was different. The food is HORRIBLE....NOTHING could make them taste good. Believe me, I tried for months. Yuck...... :huh:
