Tips for Showcasing Your Simple Inspirations Recipe Creation

If you’ve dreamed up a way to make your Jenny Craig meal even more delectable, we want you to share your creation! Read on for tips to submit your recipe for a chance to win $2,500* plus other Jenny Craig goodies and potentially have your dish shared in our Simple Inspirations Recipe Book!   We’re excited to announce the fourth anniversary of our Simple Inspirations Recipe Contest, where you can choose from more than a hundred Jenny Craig menu items and add some flare with Fresh & Free Additions or Limited Foods to craft a new recipe that falls within your meal plan.   Think you’re our next culinary master? Before you enter the contest, read these tips to get ahead of the game and submit your best piece of work. Bon Appétit! 1. Do a Creative Brainstorm. Do you have an idea to transform your  Turkey Burger with unique fixings? Talk to your consultant to confirm your recipe’s ingredients fit into your menu plan. For example, what kind of burger toppings are you including in your recipe? If you’re making veggies from our Fresh and Free Additions list—the more, the better! (Make sure they’re grilled or baked) And just ensure your added foods are Jenny Craig-friendly! 2. Choose Your Category. Is your dish best served in the morning or later in the day? There are four categories to choose from:   Breakfast Entrees Snacks and Desserts Fresh & Free Additions – (Jenny Craig Meal Not Required) You don’t need to include a Jenny Craig food in your recipe, but you do need to use foods from the list of Limited Free Foods and Fresh and Free Additions. 3. Photograph Your Food from its Best Side. Capture the quality—and appeal—of your recipe by taking advantage of natural light when snapping a pic. A few photos tips: Take multiple shots at different angles—the more, the better! Take shots from above and from the side. Use natural lighting as much as possible and avoid using a flash. Don’t worry too much about the background—your food is the star! Try to use clean and simple dishware to showcase your delicious creation.   4. Record Every Ingredient & Every Step. Start by listing out each ingredient used in your recipe (even your Jenny Craig menu item) along with the specific measurement. Then, outline your cooking instructions, including cook times. 5. Monitor your measurements. Measure all your ingredients with standardized cups and measuring spoons. Be exact, especially with seasonings—there’s a big difference between 1/8 teaspoon (a pinch) and ¼ teaspoon of cayenne powder! Also, note pinches, dashes and “to taste” notes for finishing the dish, such as for salt and pepper. 6. Be specific about the type of ingredients. Did you use a non-stick cooking spray or olive oil in your recipe? Did you use yellow mustard or Dijon?  The taste and calories of your dish depend on your specifications. 7. Note how ingredients are prepared – for instance, fresh, frozen or canned. Did you use fresh spinach leaves or frozen spinach, fresh tomatoes or a can of diced tomatoes? 8.  When documenting preparation steps, be clear on how you cut ingredients. With each ingredient, did you chop, slice or dice? Want the quick tour on each term? We love this simple guide to different cooking terms. 9. Outline your steps in order. Is there a method to your madness? Let us know each prep and cooking step in chronological order so we can follow along! Pro tip: be specific when in doubt. Record any and every step you take to ensure we can recreate your dish perfectly! 10. Have fun naming your creation! Make it as appealing and fun to say as it is to eat! Examples we love from our 2017 contest include: Very Berry Barscotti Parfait, Shake It Up S’More, Chicken “Zoodle” Soup.   Here’s an example recipe submission: Very Berry Barscotti Parfait Submitted by Jamie B. from Knoxville, Tennessee     Ingredients Jenny Craig Cranberry Almond Barscotti, crushed ½ cup frozen cherry berry fruit blend 6 oz. nonfat Greek vanilla yogurt Non-stick cooking spray   Directions Turn stove on medium-low heat and spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Cook frozen fruit over medium-low heat, until fruit softens and releases their juice, about 15 minutes— or to desired thickness. Remove skillet from heat and let cool. Layer crushed Barscotti bar in bottom of bowl, reserving 2 Tbsp of bar mixture for top of parfait. Spread vanilla yogurt evenly over Barscotti crumbs. Top yogurt with cooked fruit mixture and reserved Barscotti crumbs. Enjoy! When filling out your submission, remember to: 11. Add each ingredient in separate lines. List the ingredients in the same order as you name them in the preparation steps. If your recipe has more than seven steps, include further numbered steps in the “Additional Steps or Comments” field. 12. Include recipe prep time and cook time. Prep time is the period you spend cutting and preparing all the ingredients. Cook time is when everything is transferred to the oven, microwave, or stovetops. 13. Specify heat levels. Did you sauté, simmer, boil, bake at 350°, roast at 450° or broil at 500°? Name a prep time, plus a descriptor, for example: “Sauté onions for 10 minutes or until golden brown”.   Looking for inspiration? Check out one of last year’s winning recipes.

Circadian Rhythm Weight Loss - Does It Work?

We’re learning that when you eat is just as important as what you eat because of our body’s daily 24-hour circadian rhythm.  Find out what you need to know about your own body clock, and how it can help you reach your weight loss and health goals.     Jenny Craig has a strong foundation in science. Whether it’s working with Registered Dietitians to offer delicious versions of your favorite foods, to being the first commercial weight loss company to integrate Nobel Prize winning research on circadian rhythms into their program, Jenny Craig keeps up with the latest nutrition research and then puts it into practice to help their members reach their health and wellness goals while living everyday life.   While you already know that your food choices impact your weight, more and more research has demonstrated that when you eat is just as important as what you eat. This is based upon the science of circadian rhythms. What are circadian rhythms? The National Institute of General Medical Sciences defines circadian rhythms as one’s mental, behavioral and physical changes over a 24-hour cycle. The patterns are typically divided into two 12-hour periods, which are dictated by daytime and nighttime. During the day, you go about your errands, job, and family life, while in the evening, you typically wind down from the day’s activities and go to sleep, which allows the body to recover from everything you did throughout the day.       How do circadian rhythms work? In the same way that you are busy getting tasks done throughout the day, so are every one of your body’s cells. They all hard at work metabolizing, or managing, complex chemical processes throughout your body. This metabolism process has a predictable curve that follows a 24--hour cycle paralleling the 12-hour light-dark periods during the day. Your metabolism peaks toward mid-day and tapers off towards the early evening. In the peak period, your body is busy digesting food for the energy needed to use as fuel for all of your daily activities. By late afternoon and into the evening, your metabolism is still active but not as efficiently as earlier in the day.           #wistia_chrome_27 #wistia_grid_34_wrapper .w-css-reset{font-size:14px;}

rhythms affect weight loss  Late-night eating has a reputation for leading to weight gain, and the research on circadian rhythm has now given us insight as to why. From morning until mid-afternoon, our metabolism is optimal and the body is most efficient at burning calories. That’s why eating large meals in the evening when the body is winding down and getting ready for bed works against you and can lead to weight gain.   Jenny Craig recently launched Rapid Results, an innovative science-based program that leverages the body clock’s natural circadian rhythm to help optimize metabolism and accelerate weight loss.1 Members on the Rapid Results program focus on eating more calories during the morning and afternoon to take advantage of when their metabolism is highest, and fewer calories in the evening when metabolism tapers.     Rapid Results divides the day into two segments, a 12-hour nourishment period and a 12-hour rejuvenation period. During the nourishment period, members eat six times and choose from chef-crafted and nutritionist-designed meals. There is no counting, cooking, or meal prep and the daily menu is based upon appropriate nutrition for healthy weight loss. So, if you begin your 12-hour nourishment period at 8 A.M., you would end it at 8 P.M., when the rejuvenation period would begin. This rejuvenation period, which includes sleep, is a 12-hour window for your body to focus on “cleaning house” for repairing and regenerating your cells for the next day.       Eating in sync with your natural circadian rhythm can not only help with weight loss, but there are several health benefits as well, ranging from improvements in immune function, alertness and mood, preservation of muscle mass, management of appetite and hunger, as well as decreased risk for dementia.1-4 A key benefit of the rejuvenation period is that body fat, especially belly fat, decreases while muscle mass is maintained. 5,6 This reduction in belly fat decreases risk for obesity as well as the risk of type 2 diabetes.7   This exciting circadian rhythm science is now a new tool you can use to help manage your weight and improve your health. By paying attention to your own body clock, you are better equipped to achieve your weight loss goals, help prevent disease, and enhance your energy, quality of life and overall wellness.   Are you interested in trying the new Rapid Results program?

Rapid Results™ FAQs - Your Questions, Answered!

Whether you have already signed up or are thinking about starting Jenny Craig’s new Rapid ResultsTM program, you probably have some questions.  We tapped Janet Nash, RD from our team to help answer those FAQs. She shares the “how” and the “why” behind Jenny Craig’s new program, which leverages Nobel Prize-winning science involving the body clock’s circadian rhythm, to help accelerate weight loss.     What is the Rapid Results program? It is an innovative science-based program that leverages the body clock’s natural circadian rhythm to help optimize metabolism and accelerate weight loss.   Recent studies have shown that each cell of our body contains biological clocks that follow a unique daily 24-hour cycle, called a circadian rhythm.  The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was recently awarded to three American scientists who discovered the circadian rhythm gene.  From this research, we have learned that our internal network of body clocks dictates when to sleep, awaken and eat.  The Rapid Results program was designed with this science in mind, taking advantage of our natural metabolism and ability to burn calories when it’s most effective.  Members who completed the Rapid Results program lost up to 16 pounds in the first four weeks. The average weight loss in the study was 11.6 pounds for those who completed the program.   Who can participate in the Rapid Results program? You can sign up for Rapid Results if you are 18 years and older.  If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have diabetes, then Rapid Results is not right for you.  Adolescents and mothers who are breastfeeding may do the Jenny Craig Classic Program.  Those with diabetes can sign up with the Jenny Craig Type 2 Program.     How Does Rapid Results work? The Rapid Results program incorporates our 24-hour biological clock that is in sync with daylight and darkness.  Every system in the body has its own unique clock and the digestive system is no different – all the processes of digestion, absorption and metabolism of food are well orchestrated and they do their job best during the daytime.  But at night when the sun is down and while we are sleeping, this system is tasked with other vital functions – repairing and regenerating from a long day’s work.  When we eat in accordance with our natural clock, we harness the best results in weight loss.  In addition to improved weight loss and appetite control, research also demonstrates other benefits to following this natural daily cycle, including increased belly fat loss and improvements in immune and mental functions. 1-6   How Is Rapid Results different from the Classic Jenny Craig program? The Jenny Craig plan is known for and has been praised by weight loss experts for its commitment to providing perfect-portioned, balanced and delicious menus with the support of a weight loss consultant to address the what and the how much to eat.  Now, Rapid Results incorporates when to eat.  A rejuvenation break has been integrated into the program based on research that demonstrates the numerous health benefits of allowing your body to regroup and regenerate after a busy day of metabolizing your food. Here’s the breakdown:   Rapid Results divides the day into two segments, a nourishment period and a rejuvenation period. During the nourishment period, members eat six times and choose from chef-crafted and nutritionist-designed meals. There is no counting, cooking, or meal prep and the daily menu is based upon appropriate nutrition for healthy weight loss. Throughout the nourishment period, Rapid Results provides more calories when your metabolism is burning the most calories.   The rejuvenation break plays a critical role in the weight-loss plan as a reset time. Research demonstrates that the rejuvenation period, which includes sleep time, allows the body’s cells to rejuvenate and regenerate, boosts the immune system, manages appetite and hunger, helps preserve muscle mass, decreases the risk for dementia, as well as enhances mental alertness and mood.1-4 A key benefit of the rejuvenation period is that body fat, especially belly fat, decreases while muscle mass is maintained. 5,6 This reduction in belly fat decreases obesity as well as the risk of type 2 diabetes.7   While on Rapid Results, Jenny Craig members will continue to receive the same support with a personal consultant, who is undergoing new enhanced comprehensive training to deliver excellent weight loss guidance. Members on the study who followed the Rapid Results program lost 30% more weight in their first four weeks when compared to the Classic Program. †   What is the price difference between Rapid Results and the Classic Jenny Craig Program? There is no price difference.  The Trial, Premium and Super Premium program options will remain the same.  Regardless of program type, including Jenny Craig Anywhere, you can choose to do Rapid Results or the Jenny Craig Classic program.   How does eating more calories during the day help me lose more weight? From dawn until mid-afternoon, our metabolism is optimal and the body is most efficient at burning calories as fuel. So it makes sense for us to prioritize consuming most of our calories earlier in the day when our metabolism is optimal and avoid eating large meals in the evening, when the body is winding down and getting ready for bed. The Rapid Results menu is balanced with a higher number of calories in the morning/afternoon and fewer calories in the evening to work with these natural peaks and valleys of metabolism.   What if I am not hungry in the morning or during the day?  Like changing any habit, commit to taking that first step.  One effective way is to map out your meals and snacks throughout the 12-hour nourishment period, then set an alarm on your phone as a reminder to eat.  As you follow through with your plan day by day, you are creating a new pattern that, over time, will become your new norm.  You will discover the feeling of hunger and look forward to your first meal in the morning.   Can I have beverages during the 12-hour Rejuvenation Period? Yes! You can hydrate with calorie-free beverages like water, plain tea, black coffee or any zero calorie flavored drinks.  You do not want to consume beverages that contain sugar or any calories because that will require your body’s attention to process them and not allow it to rest fully.   Is it okay if the start and stop times for the Nourishment Period and Rejuvenation Period change during the week? Schedules tend to change day-to-day and especially between weekdays to weekends so it may be necessary to shift your schedule by a couple of hours.  Some days, the time you start your nourishment period could be from 7am to 7pm or 8am to 8pm. As long as you stick to around a 12-hour block for your body to rest and recharge during the rejuvenation break, you can reap the benefits.    I work a night shift.  Can I still do the Rapid ResultsTM program? Yes! Though the most recent science has shown that because our bodies are affected by the daily 24-hour light-dark cycle, human beings metabolize calories at slower rates during the nighttime.  Therefore, weight loss may take a bit more time.  But here are some suggestions which may help:   •  Try to take your rejuvenation break from consuming calories for around 10-12 hours. •  Get at least 7 hours of sleep.   •  Try to get in most of your calories during daylight.    Want to learn more? Schedule a free appointment to see if Rapid Results is right for you.     SOURCES:   †Members following the Rapid Results program for 28 days lost, on average, 36% more weight than those on the standard Jenny Craig program for the same time period.   1 Peterson, C.

Jenny Craig's New Rapid Results™ Program – Lose More Weight† and Improve Your Health

Jenny Craig's New Rapid Results™ Program - Lose More Weight† and Improve Your Health                                                             by Dr. Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP, FACSM Chair, Jenny Craig Science Advisory Board   Jenny Craig has been committed to a science-based weight loss program for 34 years. We are constantly evolving our program to incorporate new research to improve your weight loss and health management. For instance, researchers have made a revolutionary discovery that may affect not just weight, but also your health, wellness and quality of life. Scientists have discovered that one of the secrets to sustainable health lies in paying special attention to your body clock. Most people don’t realize that the human body and every one of its 37 trillion cells possess 24-hour clocks that follow a unique daily pattern, called a circadian rhythm. Recently, three American scientists were awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine for identifying the circadian rhythm gene that coordinates the body clock cellular activities. These body clocks become dysfunctional when we live the typical chaotic 24/7 grab-and-go lifestyle. The cell’s body clocks prefer you follow a more natural circadian rhythm of light and dark, being awake and sleeping. When your clocks are working in harmony, optimal weight management and metabolism are more likely to happen.1-5   So, how can you use your body clock to improve your overall health as well as shed excess pounds? Well, end the chaos and slip into your natural body clock genes on the New Rapid Results Program by Jenny Craig.   The program shows you how to “nourish” for 12 hours, and then “rejuvenate” for the remaining 12 hours. During the nourishing 12 hours, you’ll eat healthfully while staying physically active. During the rejuvenating 12 hours, when you’re finished eating, extraordinary things are taking place throughout your body.  The rejuvenation 12-hour window is a critical period when your body regroups, resets and regenerates after a busy day metabolizing your food and then using it to fuel your daily activities. One remarkable consequence of allowing your body this 12-hour rejuvenation time is that your body fat, especially belly fat, decreases.7 This is good news, as excess belly fat is associated with obesity and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.8   And it’s not just weight that’s improved. Scientists have also found that sticking to the 24-hour nourish-rejuvenation cycle not only preserves your muscle mass, but, with physical activity, may increase it. You’ll also activate fat burning and reduce swings in appetite.9 Sleep quality and energy may also be enhanced.     The 24-hour nourish-rejuvenation plan which is integrated into the Rapid Results Program is also associated with a decrease in the risk for dementia, along with enhanced mental alertness and mood.10 All of this is what happens when your body clocks work together as a well-coordinated team. The Rapid Results plan works with your natural body clocks to provide a time period of nourishment when you need it and can burn the food fuel most effectively, and then a period of rejuvenation during which your body can rest and regroup.    Starting your nourish-rejuvenation cycle provides a golden opportunity for studying how you live now, and what you can do to improve your environment and lifestyle. Reset your lifestyle by spending your newly increased energy, endurance and time away from eating to now fulfilling your dreams. Enjoy hikes and bike rides with family and friends. Plan vacations that challenge mind and body. Embrace a more mindful approach to “me” time by prioritizing your personal nutrition and physical fitness. And don’t forget your sleep! As you sleep, the cells throughout your body, such as your immune system, are hard at work undergoing critical regeneration.11,12 During deep sleep, your hormonal systems regroup. This includes hormones that control appetite and hunger to help you rein in cravings and stay on track. Finally, sleep is a time of holistic mind-body rejuvenation and recovery from the challenges of our busy days.   The most natural 12-hour eating cycle begins in the morning and ends no later than 8PM. So 8AM to 8PM is one example. The earlier you finish your dinner time, the better (7AM-7PM). By adhering to this kind of schedule, you’ll want to reorganize your evening hours. Instead of spending late night hours watching TV and mindlessly snacking, how about making sure you focus on getting your optimal 7-8 hours of sleep? Take a walk after dinner. Read or listen to a great book. Call a friend or family member and catch up. Take a bath and listen to music. Meditate or update your personal journal. Finish that puzzle. If you end dinner by 7PM, plan on going to bed no later than 11PM, then after 8 hours of sleep you’ve hit your 12-hours of rejuvenation time and it’s time for your first delicious meal of the day.   Isn’t it time for you to improve your health and wellness, and achieve your best mind and body?
