    Just curious...did anyone else experience nervousness when they first ordered?

    I just ordered my first week of food (the 3/2 plan). Does anyone know where I can find the lists of what are in the first four weeks of food?  Thank you!

      You should be able to see menus in the app, I believe.

    Starting this morning! I received my food on Friday and I'm starting my journey today. I'm a little confused about the process, since I am needing to seek out all the answers instead of having a book to guide me. I need to lose at least 30 pounds and I'm really hoping this is going to work for me-I'm in healthcare and have a very, lets say...unpredictable daily routine. LOL. Are there certain times I need to eat? Do I just eat the food, or can I add vegetables and fruits and if I can, what kind and how much?

      Depending on which plan you purchased, you should have gotton a getting started guide and a consultant.  I think JC has a program now where you only get food, though,  They don't seem to consider it part of the weight loss "plans."

       

      You can and should eat unlimited "free" nonstarchy vegetables.  You can have limited fruits, too.

      Another good one besides Bolthouse is Bernstein's Light Cheese Fantastico.  That one is in the aisle with the shelf stable bottled dressings.

      Ken's light dressings are great.  Ceasar, Chunky Blue Cheese, Northern Italian.  This is my first week so I'm using Jenny's but I compared the calories etc and they are very close.

      Is balsamic vinegar and light olive oil a good option?

    What is the difference between the regular Jenny Craig diet and the Type 2 Diabetes Jenny Craig diet? I was just told I am prediabetic.

  19. What is meal prepping? In a nutshell, meal prepping involves preparing your meals and snacks ahead of time. You can prep for a few days or the entire week depending on how much time you have. There are a variety of reasons you might want to meal prep — from saving time during the week to eating healthier. 5 benefits of healthy meal prepping Start meal prepping consistently and you might be surprised by some of the benefits that come along with it. 1. You could improve your diet Research shows planning your meals ahead of time could boost your intake of quality, healthy foods.1 One study of over 50,000 adults found that individuals who planned their meals were more likely to follow nutritional guidelines and more likely to eat a variety of fruit and vegetables compared to non-meal planners.1 The reason? The researchers hypothesize that people who plan their meals tend to make more diverse recipes and grocery shop for those specific ingredients. Photo by Neustockimages on iStock 2. You might lose weight It’s happened to all of us: You’re leaving work after a long, exhausting day when hunger strikes. So you hit your favorite burger joint on the way home to quell your grumbling stomach. While grabbing takeout once in a while is fine, doing so regularly can contribute to weight gain. We get it: Fast food can sometimes be the easiest and most accessible option. Here’s where meal prep for weight loss can help. If you have healthier food options on hand (like an apple with some almonds), you might be more likely to pass the drive-through on your way home. 3. You could save time Setting aside a few hours to meal prep on the weekend could save you immeasurable amounts of time during the week. When your breakfast, lunch and dinner are ready to go — you don’t have to worry about coming up with recipe ideas, spending time looking for ingredients and running to the grocery store for last-minute items. 4. You might save some dough Planning and making your meals at home could do wonders for your wallet: A 2017 study found that you could save $2 a day just by cooking at home more often.2,3 What’s more, when you know which meals you’re going to prepare for the week, you can buy more items in bulk (think oats, pasta, nuts, etc.). If you want to really get strategic about saving some cash, plan your meals around what’s on sale at the grocery store. 5. You could feel less stressed Ever worry about what to make for dinner? Kids won’t stop nagging you about their next meal? Coming up with creative recipe ideas every night can be stressful! By planning your meals in advance, you’ll take the guesswork out of the week ahead. No need to stress — you’ve got your menu plan ready. How to start meal prepping – a beginner’s guide Ready to start healthy meal prepping? Follow these simple steps. 1. Make a plan Before you rush to the grocery store or start to cook all of the food in your kitchen, map out your plan for the week. Depending on your needs, you may not need to prepare as many meals as you think. Remember, you can always use leftovers from dinner for the following day’s lunch! Here are a few idea starters to get going: Breakfast Lunch Dinner Monday Overnight oats with fruit Tuna sandwich + apple Taco night Tuesday Egg bites with vegetables Taco salad (use leftover taco fixings) Vegetable lasagna with a side salad Wednesday Oatmeal or cereal with fruit Leftover lasagna + side salad Rice bowl with chicken & vegetables Thursday Egg bites with vegetables Greek salad with leftover chicken Whole wheat pasta with vegetables Friday Healthy French toast with fruit Pasta with veggies and lean protein Chicken with roasted potatoes and asparagus Saturday Breakfast tacos with eggs and cheese Chicken sandwich + carrot sticks Salmon with grilled vegetables and brown rice Sunday Yogurt parfait with fruit and cereal topping Salad with tuna Beef with mixed vegetables and cauliflower mash As you can see, many of the meals share similar ingredients. There’s no need to make vastly different meals every day — healthy staples including vegetables and whole grains can be used in an array of dishes. 2. Create a list Now that you’ve got your plan — it’s time to list the ingredients you need. Using our example meal plan above, here’s our simplified grocery list. Note: Spices, salad dressing, healthy oils and other condiments are not included on this list. Non-perishable foods Brown rice Frozen fruit (blueberries, raspberries, peaches, etc.) Frozen vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, peas, etc.) Quick oats Whole wheat pasta Produce Fruit (apples, oranges) Non-starchy vegetables (asparagus, bell peppers, carrots, celery, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini) Starchy vegetables (sweet potatoes, chickpeas, corn) Meat/Fish Fish (canned tuna and salmon) Lean cuts of beef (sirloin steak) Skinless chicken breast Dairy/Other Corn tortillas Eggs Nonfat milk Nonfat plain Greek yogurt Whole wheat bread 3. Grocery shop You’ve got your list, so it’s time to hit the store! To help you stay on track, try to grocery shop when you’re not hungry (otherwise you might be tempted to add sweet treats and other not-so-healthy options into your cart!). Put your list on your phone or write it on a piece of paper to easily track what you need. Photo by nrd on Unsplash 4. Rinse, chop & cook Now that you’ve got all your supplies for the week, it’s time to start healthy meal prepping! Begin by washing your produce and chopping any vegetables for various salads and main courses. You don’t have to make all your meals at once, but you can prepare enough food so you can throw ingredients together in a pinch. For example, you could grill all of your lean protein and freeze what you don’t need until later in the week. So when Friday night rolls around, all you have to do is defrost your chicken breasts and grab some pre-cooked vegetables for dinner! A few other healthy meal prep ideas: Cook a few cups of quinoa or brown rice and portion out servings for the week. Or, keep it in one container and use it to serve family-style meals. Sauté vegetables that are easy to reheat without getting too mushy. Examples include bell peppers, onion, asparagus and mushrooms. Try blanching your vegetables to preserve their crunch. Here’s how: Partially cook vegetables in a skillet. Then, immediately put them in cold water — but only for a short amount of time. The cold water will stop the cooking but preserve the flavor of the vegetables. Remove the vegetables from the cold water and store. Some of the best veggies to blanch include carrots, cauliflower, asparagus and snap peas. Make egg bite muffins for a quick and healthy breakfast. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Sauté your favorite veggies (great options include spinach, red pepper and mushrooms) until tender. Whisk 5 eggs, sautéed vegetables, a splash of nonfat milk and your favorite spices in a bowl. Pour into muffin containers (use muffin liners or spray with a little bit of olive oil) and bake for approximately 15 minutes. Makes 12 servings. 5. Store for easy access You’ve got all your food prepared: Now it’s time to store it so it’s easily accessible throughout the week! Here are a few of our favorite ideas: Pack snack bags with chopped vegetables that are easy to grab on your way out the door. Put oats, milk and a dash of cinnamon into mason jars for a quick grab-and-go breakfast. Freeze meals you can take with you to work. Make a bento box filled with chopped veggies, lean protein and a healthy starch for an easy lunch option. There are lots of different meal prep containers out there — so buy the ones that work best for you. Photo by Ella Olsson on Unsplash 5. Stick to your plan Making long-lasting changes takes practice and healthy meal prepping is no exception. While it might take you a few weeks to get the hang of things and to figure out what works best for you, stick with it. We bet overtime, you’ll love the convenience and health benefits that come along with preparing your meals at home and ahead of time. No time to dream up healthy meal prep ideas?

    The Jenny Website is very limited.  I would like to be able to compare macronutrient of food to tailor my own menus with the optimum balance for weight loss. I am sure the planned menus do that, but I think I could also do it while avoiding the foods I absolutely detest. 

     

    Being able to make your own smart choices easily within the Jenny program -- would be more helpful and would support long-term success. The Website is LIMITED.

      My Fitness Pal is great - it shows all the nutrition of each food as you input the info.  I have been on JC before and am just rejoining again and it was one of the best at making sure I had all my nutrients.

      I quite MyFitnessPal because I really started to detest double tracking. I started to follow the diabetic exchanges and it was so much easier to remember. I had so much on my plate, literally. Track food, track weight in Libra and Garmin Connect, track steps and actual activity outside the usual basal activity. Actually remember to write my food macros down and journal because I didn't need to order all the JC food because I was at goal or near goal because they changed the program. It got crazy so I left and started to do a whole nutritional program with a dietician. I'd love to go back to JC for the convenience but now that its delivery due to Covid according to the calls I've been getting, I don't want to pay that extra cost. Can someone update me? Are centers open now?

    I hopped in here because every time I try to place an order online I have technical issues. I have contacted jenny craig many many times about this. I have sent screenshots of the problem. They never resolve the issue. I have tried ordering from other devices both in my home and in other places. No change. It forces me to have to order through a consultant which is time consuming. Please help. The problem is my cart will automatically empty while I am ordering or it will not let me put the card on file through and bounces back to the home welcome dashboard. This has been going on for a year. I asked to speak with technical support directly and I was told they can't put me through to them. I find this very disconcerting. I know this is on the tech end and not my end. They have told me they fixed it and it never got fixed. I have tried chrome, internet explorer, firefox. All same issue. It is not a search engine issue. I know this is not me this is a problem with my account from a tech standpoint. Please assist.

    Hey guys- thanks in advance for feedback. So with the pandemic it’s kind of difficult getting the in person experience. Just started my first week last Tuesday. I’ve supplemented some of the hunger with healthy fats like almonds, cashews, and pistachios, almond butter as well. I weighed in at 205 im 5’6. 
    I’ve actually put on a lb. I haven’t cheated or splurged on pizza, I haven’t eaten vegetables because I hate vegetables and that includes salad. Tomorrow is day 6 and I’m just feeling hungry and without hope for my self on this particular plan. I work out with fairly decent weights 3 times a week and also do cardio 3 times per week. I average a loss of 500 cals for each workout whether it’s cardio or weights. I’m not really sure where I’m screwing up? That’s a 3000 cal a week burn so even with the healthy fats I SHOULD STILL BE LOSING .... right? Help... shrug

      Sometimes you can gain weight the first week because the low calorie items weigh heavier in terms of mass. Ex. a tiny piece of candy vs. a whole apple. Give it a week and see if you drop then. Also salt/water weight/ time of the month can affect it too. Also I agree you do need to add veggies. Jazz them up or try a new one? For example spaghetti squash with tomato sauce tastes sooo much like pasta. I love it!

    3. LuckyNana

      I mix steamed veggies into many of the dishes including the various versions of scrambled eggs.  The gravy and sauces work well with them.

       

    4. mjtbq1

      The veggies are important.  Salads.  That fills me up and helps.   But if you are eating almonds cashews and pistachios that could completely derail all your work.  Check what you can substitute.
