Does anyone know what comes in the 3 day sample pack? (specifically?)

I assume it would be all of "their best" food...but would love to know for sure.

Good Luck!

Welcome, Angie (which also happens to be the name of several of my cousins - LOL)!

Anyway, hope you enjoy your three-day trial. :)

I can tell you the Jenny is one of the easiest and tastiest plans you'll be on. Hope you come to the boards often. We'll all be here to cheer you on.

I too ordered the 3 day pack, one of the reasons I ended up at Jenny. I was looking for a meal plan and doing the 3 day was a way to see if I would even like the food without a large financial commitment. As it turned out, I liked the food so much I signed up before I was finished the pack. And the $39.99 you spend on it can be applied as a discount on your first food purchase if you sign up within 2 weeks of receving your kit. Nearing the end of my first week and so far there has only been one food item I didn't like. Having the sample kit food came in handy then, because I replaced the item i didn't like with a leftover I had!

Thanks guys I really really want this to work. Do you know if they still offer the loose 20 lbs for $20?

They have a $20 for 28 day plan now which sort of replaced the 20 lbs. for $20. The benefit of the new plan is that you can renew and there was some "controversy" at some centers whether you could renew the 20 for $20 plan. Some centers would let you do it, others won't.

Going in to talk tomorrow about the program. I finally got my husband to agree that the cost is worth the weightloss. I also want to lose 20 lbs. I am excited and nervous! LOL I have been asking for Jenny Craig for the last five years for birthday and Christmas presents....FINALLY!

Welcome Meesie and congrats on making a great decision. JC works and if you learn to have a new relationship with food for the rest of your life, then it's a great plan.

If you think you'll lose the 20 lbs. and maybe go back to eating the way you did in the past when you put on the weight, save your money. There are cheaper diets.

Personally I think J C is worth the investment because I've lost the weight AND kept it off. That to me is worth so much.

Please come to the boards often and we'll cheer you on, answer questions, listen to you vent and just be here for you because we've all been where you're going and we can help.

Congrats on finally getting a great present for yourself and for being smart enough not to weight until your weight boomed up higher to start. You'll do great! :)

If anyone is wondering what comes in the 3day sample pack since the Turkey and Gravy seems to have been discontinued, the sample pack I received yesterday had the Mesquite Chicken instead. All the food in the sample pack looks so good I cannot wait to try it all.

I ordered my sample kit and it will be here on Friday 1/11. I plan to join JC the following week.

I have been so depressed about my weight and when I took the JC 'assessment' it really pinpointed what I was thinking. It was quite an eye opener. I am cynical about losing my weight. I really want to be a 'loser', but I know I have had a bad track record sticking with the lifestyle change & I am so sick of being a quitter!

Anyway, I want to be in this for the long haul as it's the only way I'll be healthy and do the things I want to do.

I've ordered the trial one week plan to see if I like it. I want to be sure to stay on it correctly so that I give it the best shot possible. I am concerned that I will want to "nosh" on something, or will get hungry. Is there something that Jenny Craig recommends that we nosh on if necessary that isn't part of the plan? An apple, walnuts, graham cracker? I want to be prepared when my products arrive tomorrow 1/11/13. Thanks.

I don't have a lot of weight to lose but my dream amount is to lose 20-24 (I would be happy with 15). I am on a strict budget these days so on the fence whether to try this or WW or maybe another program. If I try the sample (going to toss in the fact that I'm a picky eater), is there a way I can change the meals so I get what I'm interested in eating? Is there a way to just order the food and try doing this on my own? What is the cost of a meal. I was thinking of going into a centre, but don't want to feel pressure to join but I have to consider my budget.

WishMeThin:

Do yourself a favor...go into the centre and talk to a counselor. Write down all your questions prior to going in. Get them all answered and then if you don't want to sign up while you are there you can always tell them that you need to think about it or you need to discuss it with your significant other. The reason I suggest going to a centre is because they can give you the answers right there face to face as well as information on any other plans or specials that might available.

Every day is a little different but it will be below the 1200 calories. Then she adds in items like dairy, fruit, and veggies. To determine how many calories she needs to add in a day will depend on her height/weight.

My three day sampler just arrived :). I wonder about couple of things however. Is the shipping still free or do I have to pay for when I am on my own. I am thinking of joining the online only option. I saw that I can order the food by selecting the date range which seems pretty cool and perhaps will help me split the cost. How much do you guys spend monthly on JC food?
