  • Hi, I am new today. Literally, starting in the morning. My first appointment with with my counselor/consultant is next week. Any advice to get started? Also, I did not buy the Max scale, but I'm wondering if any of you have.- and if so, what are your thoughts on it?

  • I have tried numerous times to use the Jenny Craig app on my phone.  I sign in with my email and password.  Then it sends me to the anoher sign in page, and it will not let me click on I agree to Jenny 

    Craig!  Bottom line, not working on my iphone!

  • Just started so want to better understand what I can add toe the made meals.



  • Does anyone know where to find a substitution list? 

    1. Redbedhead


      For the meals?  It is in the app.

    2. stargazer26


      You can also ask your consultant to send you the substitution list. Mine did. 

  • where can I find the vegetarian menus?

  • Help, I am traveling for the next 2 weeks.  I went and picked up food at the closest center, 45 minutes away and didnt receive my Jenny Shakes, what can I use as a substitute? 

    1. Cateye


      I use muscle milk zero sugar as a replacement.

    2. Redbedhead


      Regular milk serving

  • The amount of sugar in the desserts/snacks/breakfasts and sandwiches on JC seems so counterintuitive.  I usually try to stay away from sugar and now I'm having more than ever it seems.  How is this healthy?

  • Can someone please tell me how the recharge bar works? ... Like,.... When do you have it?.... (For starters ) .. lol

    1. ChristiS


      It is my understanding you eat the Recharge Bar 12 hours into your fast, and then eat your breakfast two hours later.


      Do you have a consultant/coach?

    2. Kim Tabaka

      Kim Tabaka

      That is great news for me!.... Lol.... Thank you for responding Miss ChristiS! ... I have an appointment with JC this week.... I will confirm that ... But thanks for giving me the heads up..... I'll be picking up a few!

    3. Redbedhead


      Yes ideally you would eat it 2 hrs before you end your fast, however my schedule is so crazy I have been told just eat it whenever I have time. During my 10 HR eating window.  

  • What is the maintenance plan?  I don’t see anything about it on website?  Thanks for all help.

    1. ChristiS


      I have heard JC doesn't focus on maintenance as much as they used to in the past. But, it's a good thing to talk to your consultant/coach about. They usually start helping you make a plan as you get closer to your goal. 

  • Hi - For vegetables - are lima beans considered fresh and free under the Bean category?


    1. ChristiS


      No, they are a legume and too high in calories to be fresh and free.

  • Just started today and I'm really excited. I've lost 50 lbs on my own with diet and exercise the past few years, but can't seem to get this last 15-20 off; so I just did the darn thing today and got all my food. The no alcohol  thing is going to be the hardest for me, I love my wine at the end of the day...but I'm super determined to do this! 

    1. ChristiS


      I stopped alcohol for the time I was on JC, and it was a game changer. I realized how much of a difference it makes with weight loss and weight maintenance and how much better I feel when I don't drink. It was a little hard at first, but, like you, I was determined. I've been on maintenance for 6 years, and I still rarely drink. Along the way I discovered I could still have fun without it - plus be more productive the next day.  Lol.

    2. DJt


      What is maintenance?

  • 4 weeks in, 11.5lbs down.  Another 30 to go.  Definitely will do it.  Challenge will be maintaining it.  But I gotta get back to where I once belonged. 

    1. ChristiS


      Fantastic progress!  Great work.

  • I am brand new this week and don't like a few of the meals I received (I don't eat anything with mayo or cream sauces).  Can anyone suggest a replacement meal for the Chicken Ranch Melt and the Fettucine Alfredo?  I can purchase something or make it, I just want to stay as close to on plan as possible.  Thanks!

    1. linda223


      I'm back for my 3rd go around on Jenny so I know what I like and don't like. If you contact your counselor they can swap out a food in the same category that will keep you on plan. I had a few foods this first week I needed to change (I knew from previous experience that I didn't like them) and my counselor read me a list of foods I could exchange them for.

      Trying to upload menu substitution list but I don't think it worked. You can search the boards forums for the list someone uploaded it for me

  • Hi guys! Do you think the scales at the center are accurate?

    1. RachelP123


      I think so, I went to the doctor a week before my first weigh-in and the weight was within 2 pounds, so I believe my center's scale is accurate.


      More importantly, my weight at the center is definitely accurate as compared to my weight on the scale a week before and a week after. I have no reason to doubt it. When I follow the plan and eat all my fruits and veggies I see the numbers go down.


      My home scale is about 2 pounds lower than the center's scale consistently. My home scale is also usually lower than at the doctor.

  • Hi guys! Do you think the scales at the center are accurate?

  • Welcome! :)

  • I'm new and menu ask for a Garden Salad not such what this means is it just lettuce and tomato's or is there a recipes for beginners  

    1. DJt


      It’s just a mixed salad with whatever is fresh and free.  Minimal if any, dressing.

      Hello @cherily, welcome to Jenny Craig! if you have not already, I recommend downloading the free Jenny Craig app- there are resources available such as our grocery list and the list of fresh and free additions. On the app if you select More > Resources > Fresh & Free guide there is a list of the non starchy veggies you could use towards your salad. A few examples are lettuce, spinach, onions, carrots, celery, cucumbers. If you scroll past the veggie list you will see a list of flavor enhancers and beverages which are okay to have as well. 

      If you are unable to download the app I am happy to send you a PDF of the lists- feel free to send me a message with your email address :) 

  • Could you put Canadian JC menus online?  We do not have the same products as shown on your calendar.
