  • It’s been over a month without Fish & Chips on the menu. I love fish and that once-a-month can of tuna salad just isn’t enough.  Are there any plans for some other fish entree?  Thanks 

  • 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?

    1. ChristiS


      CONGRATULATIONS on  meeting your goal!


      I think you pick and choose.  


      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.  

    1. ChristiS


      Add a milk.  If you haven't' already done it, download the Jenny app on your phone.  The getting started guide is there, which helps you figure out exchanges for things like fruits, veggies. and milks.

      I have a follow up to this question too. Can almond milk, unsweetend, 30 calories per cup substitue the milk? I read it should be counted as a starch? If so, is milk considered a starch too?


  • 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!!

    3. RachelP123


      I don't know if a consultant would recommend it. But if I'm famished and I've just worked out, an extra 2 oz or 4 oz of low-fat cheese seems reasonable. I'm guessing a protein shake would work too!

    4. ChristiS


      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 Is the JC app connected to computer at the Center? Thanks

      Hi @Puppidayour Coach can see what you track and your weekly weigh in with your coach will display on your weight progress chart as, "In Center." 

  • 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

    1. RachelP123


      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!

    2. ChristiS


      @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!

  • Hi what can you replace the Jenny Craig Shake with? Thanks

    1. ChristiS


      I think the replacement is a milk.

    2. Nonameavailable


      Hi. I was told it could be a dairy product under 100 calories like yogurt for example 

  • Hi Everyone: how do I get the jc app on my phone/tablet? Thanks

      It is free.

      Hi one more question on the app. Is the app linked to computer at JC center where I go to. Thanks

  • 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!


    1. ChristiS


      That looks delicious!

    2. TracyLea64


      Great idea! Thank you for sharing.


    3. RachelP123


      I love the colors!

  • I had same result as RNStacy but like jrsy I was using the RRMax instead of the RRMax NEW (located in the RRMAX dropdown box)....the NEW matches up with the paper guide.

  • It doesn’t seem like the app matches the paper menus or the office system. So frustrating to constantly change items out when I’m following the menu as planned :(

    1. Jrsy_girl


      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’m a success plus member from years ago.  Does that qualify for a discount as part of a lifetime membership?

      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. 

    3. emmacat-1234


      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.

      Hi @CSawix our team would be happy to check the status of your program.  You can private message me or give us a call at 1-800-536-6922.  Thanks!

  • Starting Day 2 today.  Day 1 wasn't so bad. I am actually surprised at how good the food is...but it's so processed that if they didn't process in flavor, I'd be disappointed. 


    I find the app very clunky to use...and as a software development consultant who specializes in the end user experience, it's killing me!  But I will live!

    1. ChristiS


      You are certainly not alone in your feelings about the app.  


      I love the food!  What's your favorite, so far?

    2. RachelP123


      The app...is not terrible but could definitely be better. I wonder why it takes so long to load, why I always have to expand all 15 times a day to log, mostly...it gets the job done.

  • Day 1 - great conversation with JC manager, I'm back on track!  So excited !!


    1. ChristiS


      It's definitely worth being excited about.  Jenny makes losing weight almost easy. (almost)

  • 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. 

    1. ChristiS


      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.  

    3. Tintaglia


      If your working out you could have gained muscle so I wouldn’t worry and every scale is different 

  • My JC food is on its way and I am so excited to get back on track !

    1. ChristiS


      That is very exciting!  JC is a wonderful program!

    2. Lomills


      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?

    1. ChristiS


      I have heard it's OK to switch meals within one day.

  • I just received week 6 but I don't have a plan for week 6 how do I go about getting one.

    1. Jrsy_girl


      I believe that week 6 should be the same as week two, there are 4 weeks worth of menus and beginning at week 5 you would start with week 1 again.
