  • Where do I find the portion sizes on the jennycraig.com website. And where do I find my progress? This is driving me crazy.


    1. CharlynH

      CharlynH

      Your progress is not on the website, but it is on the App.  The portion control guide is on the App under "More."  You can email it to yourself if you want to print it out. I don't know if it's on the website or not.  

  • I have been on Jenny 2 times, I really do love the food (not all, but most).  Week 1, lost 5 pounds!!  I will say the Recharge bars are actually not bad (considering others).  I have it with either coffee in the morning or milk and that does help.

     

    I wish Jenny's website had more to it than what it has.  I am comparing to Weight Watchers, which is the best site I have seen.  WW works, I just don't have time to be a chef, and I find Jenny has really good food.  Please work on the website, it lacks communication, and a better weight tracker!!!  I would also like to see a way to be able to say, this is what I like, this is what I don't like so I can just go to the website and pull up my food LIKES, it would make it easier when doing the weekly menu selection.

      I agree there is SO much more they can do. I know IT resources everywhere are strained right now.

  • I started the program again and I am not a fan of the recharge bars. what are some healthy options that I can substitute.... 


    1. Shirleysee

      Shirleysee

      Try it with milk or coffee.  I think the recharge bars are the key to this program, honestly!

       

  • Is there somewhere I can access the list of entrees that I can swap out for the ones I don't care for?

     


    1. Shirleysee

      Shirleysee

      I totally AGREE!

      Your advisor can give you this. I think it changes as months pass, by region and food availability. My advisor gave me copies last week. 

  • I have been following the Classic plan for 8 weeks & am down 9 lbs.  I am a senior & think my age is causing the slower loss.  I did not join for the food, many items I don’t like, but joined again because of the motivation I receive each week from my consultant.  If I were doing this on my own, I would have quit weeks ago.  This program does work, it will just take me longer to reach my goal.


    1. Shirleysee

      Keep it up, it is worth it.

  • I love the program and have been on it twice before in my life (20 years ago) but I wish the online program and the center program were the same.  I go to the center and get two weeks of food at a time because I travel a lot for work and wanted to switch to online delivery but apparently the programs are not the same.  Anyway, I have lost 25lbs in 2 months but I'm off and on the program due to work travel.  I still think they have the absolute best food of any program.  Meals are so low calorie and you can't find meals like that with lean cuisine or any other frozen foods in the grocery store.  I got bored with the shakes so I add ice, put them in the blender and freeze them in small containers to have a night time snack that is between water ice and ice cream consistency.    It's my last treat of the evening before the fast!  Good luck everyone and keep it up, it works!

      I looked on Pinterest as well as some websites who offer great shake enhancement suggestions such as making smoothies with them. 

  • Hello,

    I just signed up fro the Maxup, starting the plan today. I hope to learn from your reviews and experiences with the program. Looking forward for your emotional support. Greatly needed.

      You'll do great!  I tend to fast later than they schedule because I'm not a breakfast eater so I eat breakfast for lunch, lunch for dinner, dinner later.  It all works out for me and I've lost 25 lbs so far and feel great.  

       

  • Is anyone else experiencing issues with the app? It just says under maintenance. 


  •  

    Hi! I am new and just ordered food for MaxUp. Is there a schedule or something that I should follow when I start? Any tips before my box come in? Thanks!

  • Question what can I substitute for the jenny shake? My order did not include shakes and it is listed with breakfast day 1?

      Milk serving.

    2. Dukessister

      Dukessister

      cup of yogurt as long as it is not over 110 calories, right?

  • Can I eat additional items from the "grocery list" WITH the scheduled. meals?  Curious about how many almonds I can eat, or if I can have a hard boiled egg in addition to the assigned breakfast??

     


    1. Pamalam

      Pamalam

      There’s a list of free items, and then limited extras (so many extras, the portions, each day).  Typically the more you do not add to the menu, the better and faster your success. The key is discipline.

  • Hi all...just started.  Can I substitute one meal for another if I am not in the mood for the one on the schedule?

      Hi Angine, I dont think your suppose to just because it may have more carbs or calories depending on  which plan your doing? Congratulations on just starting the plan! best of luck.

    2. Kits

      Hi Angine.  They prefer you to stick to the plan because of the nutrition.  But there is a list of things that can be substituted for each other.  There are some things that I just don't like so I use the substitution list to find things I like better that are still in the right groups. For instance, the Cauliflower Fried Rice with Chicken can be substituted with the Beef Stir Fry Bowl.  I use the Jenny Craig app and that also has the allowable substitutes for everything.  If you don't use the app, talk to your consultant and they can give you some ideas.  Congratulations on getting started and good luck!!

      I asked that question last week.
       

      You can flip around entire days (Tuesday vs Thursday), or

       

      move food within the same day (eg lunch for dinner, the morning shake to evening, and times within your non fasting hours).

       

      but they don’t advise moving one dinner from one day, and exchanging just the dinners. 
       

      I try to look ahead and see if my mood tells me to swap whole days.  So far, I’m sticking right to the menu and I’ve been quite pleased, even if I think I’m not in the mood, as soon as I begin eating, I realize the nutrients, fat, protein etc, are exactly what I need and the emotional cravings subside. 

  • I’ve been off the plan (after achieving my goal weight) for about 3 weeks and feel like I’ve totally fallen off the wagon. I’m starving all the time and can’t seem to ever get satiated so I’ve been binge eating. I’m afraid to step on a scale. Has anyone else experienced this and offer some advice?


    1. Redbedhead

      Redbedhead

      I did.  I actually gained about 10 pounds after being on maintenance for 3:weeks because of it. I determined my most overeating times were breakfast and snacking.  so i went back on plan, but now I purchased breakfast, bars, and some snacks but not the entrees.  I still have about 5 pounds to lose to be back at my goal weight.  Oh I also saved a weeks worth of the plastic dishes the entrees came in to measure my portions out in for my homemade lunch and dinner.  it helps when I see the rest of my family eating giant platefuls to know that I portioned mine correctly.

    2. Sundae V.

      Sundae V.

      Thats a great idea to keep the little trays for reference! I will have to try this.

    3. Pamalam

      Pamalam

      Start with basics: are you drinking the same water you did before?  Water is so key. 
       

      are you eating balanced meals? Healthy protein, fiber and fats are critical to being satisfied, and your insulin working correctly. 
       

      Start there. Get your cravings under control.  Then work on portion monitoring. That should get you pointed back in the right direction. Then you can step on the scales, and decide next steps. 

  • I am struggling to adhere to my plan.  I want a JC sign or a water bottle that i can wave at people when they try to lure me off plan.   My willpower is weak

      Isn't it NOT FUNNY when people do that?  They do here at my office too.  A couple of my coworkers I just have to IGNORE.  Grrrr.

      Wave your veggies at them or a big salad and tell them to join you!

  • Hello All,

     

    I wanted to say Hello to all you amazing people. I am barely starting on my weight loss journey and I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I hope you are all having a great weekend.

      Hi welcome, so great to know others are doing the program.  I love Jenny Craig.  I've been on the program 3 times in my life and the first time I love 30 pounds. The 2nd time and now, I don't have that much to lose but I still love being on it because it simplifies my life and it works.  Good luck to all!

  • Down 265 pounds!
