I have been on the plan for 3 months and am close to my goal. I would like to look at what's available once I hit my goal but the website will not let me look at other plans. Where can I find this information?
I have been on rapid results max for a few months and have reached my goal. I just switched to the Essential plan, which is just breakfast, lunch, and dinner so that i can slowly "wean" off of Jenny Craig. Do you follow a specific menu with this plan, or do you just pick and choose what you want each day?
Something I did when I started maintenance was adding my own breakfasts. I found out I could make my own french toast with light multigrain bread and egg whites, pancaked using Kodiak cake mix, cereal using Cherrios. Just be sure to measure. Oh, I also made breakfast burritos with egg whites, Laughing Cow light cheese, and veggies. Breakfasts were a great place to dip my toe into MOMO (meals on my own).
A great tool is My Fitness Pal. I tracked for a couple years with MFP and learned a lot about planning my own daily menus.
So I’m starting tomorrow. My food came after I talked to my coach. On my menu it says a breakfast and a Jenny Craig Shake. I didn’t get any shakes. What do I substitute for it? I don’t live by a center so I can’t just drop in.
Have been on the diet for 9 weeks so far. I have been enjoying the progress, albeit it slowing down more recently. Have been at the same weight for five days. I know it’s part of the process- but any tips for a standstill like this? I exercise and follow the plan blindly .. looking for some ideas. Thanks!
I’ve been thinking about adding extra protein daily, you just reminded me of that! I was trying to research at what point your body is in too much of a calorie deficit, but couldn’t find any sources online with a definitive answer. Thank you!!
A 5 day standstill is not in the least bit uncommon. The best thing for you to do is stay the course. Weight loss does slow down as you get closer to your goal. The good news is, each pound you lose packs a bigger punch as far as how it makes you look and feel.
That said, I must admit I had a goal date (my son's wedding) for my weight loss. As the date approached, I felt like I needed to pick it up. I started doing BeachBody 21 Day Fix Workouts and increasing my steps. Walking is incredible for calorie burn. So much more than you can imagine! Increasing my exercise definitely increased my hunger, but I was determined to be the person on the outside I felt like on the inside for my son's wedding. I was so proud of myself when I made it. Plus, the effort transformed my approach to food and exercise. I have maintained my weight loss for 6 years!
Stick with the plan. Don't give up. You will reach your goal.
Hi. I am back on the program after 25 years. My question is, why does this program have so many treats, desserts, and foods with higher carb content and then it limits real foods like fruits and vegetables because of the calorie\carb content? It makes more sense to have an apple instead of the s’mores bar. More vitamins, minerals,water and fiber. Thanks
Hi Nonameavailable I'm not an expert but I think the idea with Jenny is everything in moderation. You get carbs, protein, and fat, and you get adequate fruits and veggies.
I've been doing Jenny for 6 weeks and lost 19 pounds so far. I also have let myself have a couple of extra servings of fruit a week and pretty much unlimited vegetables so far. I'm happy with it. That's not recommended (the fruit part) I guess but I'm worried about making changes for life that work for me.
It is my understanding that non-starchy vegetables are unlimited, the amount on your plan is just a minimum!
@RachelP123nailed it on this answer. Jenny Craig changed my relationship with food. I used to see foods as "good" or "bad." Dieting was a fight with food as I tried to enjoy eat the "good" foods and eliminate the "bad" ones. After doing Jenny, I realized I can eat all the foods I enjoy as long as I watch my portions and eat a good variety of foods. Thanks to Jenny, I now have a good relationship with food. I lost 40 pounds and have maintained that loss for 6 years!
Restarting after being gone a year and it feels great! I have found it very helpful this time around to have cut up condiments ready in my fridge to add to my meals, like onions, peppers, mushrooms. It makes everything more filling and tasty!
I was having that issue and I contacted them, apparently the first tab on the app you can select which menu mine has been on PR Max, but not the PR Max NEW, when I selected that in the dropdown it was the same as the paper menu that I go at the center. I hope this helps!
I had some issues when I first went back getting the discount, I had originally joined when they had the lifetime membership, I ended up calling customer service and they were able to let me know that I should be getting the discount and the next time I went it was applied.
If you call them they will have the best answer as to if you are eligible.
Hi Jrsy_girl. I have encountered the same issue. I originally joined many years ago when it was a lifetime membership. If memory serves there was no obligation to renew yearly which I am now told was a requirement. I was at a 35% discount. I stopped at least once then went back later with the discount applied.
How long ago did you originally join? I would love to get my discount back as the $ have certainly increased.
Who did you call? Thank you for any advice you can provide.
went to jc center and weighted in had a weight loss, then I weighed my self on the jenny craig scale at home and says i gained 3 1/2 pounds in 1 day. I weigh my self everyday and stick the jenny craig diet and gained weight. I weigh my self everyday. Has anyone else run into this problem. Very discouraging when I stick to the plan lost weight and now my jenny craig scale at home says I gained weight.
Many, many people struggle with daily weighing. There is a lot of fluctuation in weight for a huge number of reasons. Many people find weighing once a week, and sometimes even less, helps them not get derailed by the number on the scale. Try not to get concerned and discouraged by that number. If you stick to the JC plan, you will absolutely succeed in reaching your goals for a healthier you.
Hi , Thanks for replying. You made me feel better. I think for now I'm just going to weight in one a week at the Jenny Craig Center so I do not concentrate so much on the number and concentrate on the program and losing weight.
Hi, Thanks for responding! Yes, it is a wonderful program. I did JC many years ago and had success. I was also a consultant with Jenny Craig several years ago so I know that it works, (if you work it).
Issues with the app and the new menu? Is anyone else noticing that the app is not isync with the new menus? I started the new menu on week 3 for day 15 the app had a different breakfast and snack for day 15 than the printed menu. I also noticed that day 16 is different, at least for the snack.
I am relatively new to this. I was wondering if I can switch up my meals during the day, instead of eating them in order? With my work schedule, and only 15 min. For lunch or dinner, sometimes it seems much easier to switch around lunch and dinner, or even lunch and breakfast. Is that ok to do 1-2 days a week?
