    Jenny Craig Online: At Home & On Your Schedule

    Hi I had gold club (lifetime ) membership years ago just wondering if I could do online with food delivery without paying new membership fee? Can food be delivered to Huntly?
  6. Liv2shoppe


    I am moving soon to an area where the closest center is 105 miles away. I will need to start having my food delivered. Anyone know if you can make changes when ordering the food online? I have looked a little on the website but I didn't see anything about making food changes.

    I’m not thrilled with my consultant.  Anyone have experience with this?  I’m in my 60s and I think she is much, much younger.  Once I had a substitute consultant who was really engaging and talked about motivation and how to stay encouraged.  The first thing this other consultant asks is “what are your numbers?”  Or am I just being cranky?  Would love some ideas.

    1. missbumble


      OK I pay a ton for food - like 140 -180.. So you are in charge! Call up - and if someone else answers - ask  who all the JCC consultants are when you want to visit. Ask he if the substitute one you once had has a set time? Or also tell her the attributes of the one you likes - need someone.who has, XYZ. I have switched around - and know the whole staff... O its helpful. I get into a groove and go with one person for a while...  So I would absolutely take charge.. and get the experience and support that works for you, let us know how it  goes. Come on over to our daily support post and say hi. We love new people to join our thread.

    New Foods are Here! Check Out Our Spring Menu

    I took Brussel sprouts and tossed them with the Jenny Craig Vinaigrette dressing and roasted them in the air fryer (or oven would work too). I added this to the Chicken Primavera. It was really filling and tasted great : )

    I started Jenny Craig on February 5, 2019 and as of December 22, 2019 to current day I have lost 92.6 lbs!!!! Now I am just trying to maintain and so far it has been pretty easy. I just wanted to tell somebody :) 

    1. Lulu14673


      That's amazing! Congratulations and welcome to the JC community!

      Keep working the program.  It will work.  Two pounds is great, it's two pounds towards your goal.

  14. Great read and so happy for you Erin and others that have posted. I am on my second week and loving what you and others have said with one on one meetings that keep you motivated, the program and now the DNA testing. The program is helping me become self aware.

    What’s the Difference Between Keto and a Low-Carb Diet?

    Low-carb vs. keto: The basics So, what is a low-carb diet? It’s just what it sounds like: It’s one that reduces the amount of “carbs,” or carbohydrates, that you eat. “Following a low-carb diet doesn’t mean you’ll need to give up carbs completely,” says Briana Rodriquez, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist at Jenny Craig. “Paying attention to the types of carbs you eat and how much of them you enjoy are two of the keys to maintaining a low-carb diet.” Carbohydrates are a type of macronutrient found in many foods and are often blamed for weight gain. But the truth is, carbohydrates are extremely important. The body converts carbs into glucose, a type of sugar that is your body’s main source of energy.1 Common sources of carbs include sugars, grains, dairy products, fruits and vegetables. Consuming an excess of unhealthy carb-heavy foods, like sugar-sweetened beverages and fast food, could contribute to weight gain. (Here’s the difference between simple and complex carbs and how they impact weight loss.) On the other hand, “keto,” or the ketogenic diet, is a more restrictive version of a low-carb diet. Its goal is to get your body into ketosis, a process that makes the body use fat for energy when its glucose stores have been depleted.2 Compared to a low-carb diet, the keto diet drastically reduces the amount of carbohydrates someone will eat throughout the day and replaces them with foods that are high in fat, such as meat, eggs and avocado. The most extreme versions of the keto diet can drop carbohydrates to a mere 5%,3 which means you might need to say goodbye to your favorite breads, pastas and desserts. While a menu consisting largely of bacon and butter may sound tempting, Rodriquez cautions against it. “Without the right guidance, it can be easy for someone to overeat foods, like red meat and full-fat cheese, that are easy to find in the keto diet,” Rodriquez says. “Organic, free-range and grass-fed foods are often encouraged by keto dieters. Those types of food can be delicious and good for you, but portions are still important. Large amounts of meat and cheese can be high in saturated fat, which could impact your weight loss efforts.” Instead, Rodriquez recommends enjoying a more moderate approach, like one of Jenny Craig’s balanced low-carb diet plans, where you’ll enjoy mindful portions of fiber-rich carbohydrates, lean proteins and healthy fats. Health benefits of a low-carb or keto diet A low-carb or keto diet could help to support weight loss, but that’s not all — both diets may be linked to other positive effects on your health. And when it comes to choosing between the two, understanding the effects either diet could have on your health may help. A low-carb diet might help reduce inflammation. A small study from 2014 reported that following a low-carb diet could have a beneficial effect on inflammation associated with Type 2 diabetes.4 A low-carb diet might reduce your risk of heart disease. One large, 20-year study found that women eating a low-carbohydrate diet high in vegetable sources of fat and protein had a moderately lower risk of heart disease.5 The keto diet might help with certain health conditions. As early as the 1920s, versions of the keto diet have been used to help treat epilepsy.6 Now, the practice of treating epilepsy with a high-fat, low-carb, low-protein approach to the keto diet is carefully monitored by teams of health professionals and can be used as a potential alternative to medication. Keeping these health benefits in mind, you might be wondering how hard it is to follow a low-carb or keto diet. Is it difficult to maintain a keto or low-carb diet? Photo by Dreamer Company on iStock Any change to your lifestyle can require a little bit of practice. Depending on the way you approach a keto or low-carb diet, you may need help sticking to your goals. Keeping up with the keto diet can be challenging, says Rodriquez, but it’s not impossible. A small study suggests that following a ketogenic diet might benefit obese individuals, and could result in weight loss, lowered LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and glucose, and increased HDL cholesterol.7 While many keto dieters have reported health and weight loss benefits in the short term, keto meal options can be restrictive and expensive, and extreme carbohydrate restriction could even result in a variety of unpleasant side effects, including fatigue, constipation and headaches.8 Experts at Harvard Health report that adhering to the keto diet long-term may also result in an increased risk of kidney stones and the potential for nutrient deficiencies.7 “It’s easy to find all sorts of keto resources online, but if you’re following the keto diet on your own, you might not be giving your body what it needs to feel its best,” Rodriquez says. “Try working with a registered dietitian or nutritionist to make sure you’re choosing healthy sources of fat, protein and carbs so you don’t miss out on important nutrients.” On the other hand, a low-carb diet could be a more balanced option that’s potentially easier to follow. “A more moderate low-carb diet won’t force you to cut back on carbohydrates the same way that the keto diet does,” explains Rodriquez. She points to non-starchy vegetables and whole grains as key sources of healthy carbohydrates, which can be enjoyed while following a low-carb diet. They're rich in fiber, which may help to support weight loss and digestion. High-fiber foods help to fill you up and keep you feeling satisfied so you’re less likely to overeat later. And if your goal is weight loss, a low-carb diet could help in the long run. A study conducted from 2014 to 2017 found that people who followed a low-to-moderate carbohydrate diet burned more calories than those who followed a high carbohydrate diet.9 How to get started with a low-carb diet Want to give a low-carb diet a try? Jenny Craig offers delicious and healthy low-carb options. And unlike the keto diet, you won’t need to count macronutrients, measure ingredients, or even bother with complicated prep work: Jenny Craig meals are perfectly portioned to help support weight loss and are ready in minutes!

With your coach’s guidance, you’ll learn healthy habits you can practice while you’re following the Jenny Craig program and beyond. You won’t need to follow a low-carb diet forever. Once you reach your weight loss goal, you’ll gradually begin reintroducing more carbohydrates into your diet. Next, you’ll move on to Jenny Craig’s Maintenance Program to help you celebrate your achievements and stay on track with your healthy lifestyle.

    Jenny Craig Launches 20 New Foods for 2020

    I don't know why it won't take my email for sign in so I'll have to comment as a guest. I agree with the other comments about lack of vegetarian foods. The ones you offer are good but I get tired of them after a while because there just aren't enough of them. And when new foods come out...no vegetarian! I need to come back to Jenny Craig but hesitate because I know I'll get bored eating pasta every night. How about a black bean burger or a lentil loaf, both high in fiber and healthy. Or a cheese enchilada, or a vegetable stir fry, or a veggie omelet....the possibilities are endless, you just need some inspired chefs who care about the growing number of vegetarians out here.

It's a great way for those who are less familiar with our program to try some of our member favorites. Check out our store and let us know what you think!


  25. Since losing weight on Jenny Craig, I’ve felt happier, energetic and more confident! My previous weight loss attempts had me cutting out food that I craved or eating hardly anything. I thought I needed to give up everything that tasted good in order to lose weight. I ended up discouraged after every weight loss attempt for "cheating" and gaining back any weight I’d lost. Jenny Craig took the guesswork out of weight loss for me. I followed the program, ate great-tasting food and I lost 22 lbs.* I no longer need to stress about what I am going to cook and eat, and since I did not have to deprive myself of my favorite foods, I was able to enjoy myself while losing weight. I no longer feel self-conscious at the gym. Before I wore baggy clothes and limited myself to machines that were in the corner to avoid being noticed and judged. Now I feel confident enough to lift weights out in the open and exercise in my fitted workout clothes again. I am so grateful to Jenny Craig for helping me to change my life and providing me with a program to lose weight and help me keep it off. Ready to get started? Taylor enjoyed her favorite foods while reaching her weight loss goals, and you can, too! Jenny Craig’s delicious meals, snacks and shakes are perfectly portioned to support healthy weight loss and can be delivered right to your door. Plus, get personalized, one-on-one support throughout your journey from a dedicated coach and track your meals, goals and activity with our easy-to-use mobile app. Book your free appointment to get started today! *Results may vary.

    New Breakfast Foods Are Here!

    I am a type 2 diabetic and wish I could do my own breakfasts. I am very sick of cheese sauce on everything and since I am from the Northeast, Mexican is fine once in a while, but too much is too much. When I was doing my own breakfasts, I would have oatmeal, or eggs, or sometimes cereal that was not sweetened.

    Hi there, 

    Thanks for sharing all those great recipes! I can't wait to try some out. Also, gotta get me some PB2!

    Question, your recipes typically have additions other than veggies. How does that work into the Jenny plan? Like your Cinnamon Roll french toast, there's milk and an egg white added in. Is that in place of the standard JC menu of a milk serving/greek yogurt? 

    Also, you should publish a cookbook and sign me up for a preorder. :D

    Feeling healthy, happy, and enjoying life!
