    Can you switch your meals at lunch and dinner on the same day? I’ve found that some entrees scheduled for dinner I would rather have at lunch instead.

      ChristiS

      I've heard it's OK to do that.  I think the preference is to eat the heavier meal for lunch, though.

    Hello friends - I will be traveling from NC to GA for 3 weeks in November and am trying to plan my JC food.  Is it possible to pick up food at a different center?

    1. ChristiS

      ChristiS

      Yes, you should be able to do that.

    Does anyone know if we are hungry during the day can we have some free veggie?

    1. ChristiS

      ChristiS

      Yes, you can.  From the Fresh & Free list.

    I'm a first timer, only looking to lose 10-15lbs, but its a stubborn weight that wont seem to go in the ways i normally would drop some weight. I am starting today, and I was never told anything about the fruits and veggies or "Fresh and Free" stuff that I can add to my meals. Can anyone tell me where i can access more info on this please?

    1. Jaynetoo

      Jaynetoo

      I got that info from a handout they gave me called Tips and Tools

    What Are “Free” Foods and Can They Hinder Weight Loss?

    Hi Linneybella, Thank you for your comment! We love to hear how great you're feeling on Max! You are welcome to eat the Recharge Bar later in the morning if you are not hungry. We recommend fasting for at least 12 hours before you consume it for the best results, but if you're not hungry, feel free to eat it when you are! Let us know if you have any other questions. Have a great day!

    Hey All, I am starting the RR tomorrow...any suggesstions or tips?

      I'm a bit late to respond, sorry!

       

      I like some of the meals a lot better if I heat them in the convection oven (air fryer) rather than the microwave.

       

      I like to space out my meals differently on work days than weekends. I need that energy in the morning to focus and be productive on weekdays, whereas on weekends I would rather eat later into the day.

       

      Eat all of your fruits, vegetables, and milks + added protein and fats if applicable. You don't get bonus points for starving yourself.

       

      Plan ahead. If you know when you will eat something of plan and you track it and select something before you are hungry and in a social setting it is so much easier.

       

      Make a note of the meals you don't really like. You will forget!

  13. What foods are freshest in fall? Summer seasonal produce had us snacking on berries and serving up sweet corn. And while we love what summer has to offer … there’s just nothing that compares to apples, pumpkins, butternut squash, pears, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cranberries, and beets. Fall flavors are very much on the sweet to the savory side with leafy greens, cruciferous veggies, gourds, and more in full swing. Throughout the fall season, different fruits and vegetables come into ripeness. Here’s what’s ready from month to month: Early Fall – mid-September – grapes, eggplant, pomegranates, persimmons, apples, pumpkins, beets and sweet potatoes Mid-Fall – October – mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, celery, sweet potatoes, apples, grapes, pomegranates, kale, beets, cranberries Late Fall – November – cranberries, pears, parsnips, oranges, turnips, winter squash, Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, beets, figs Fall fruits Apples A trip to the apple orchard the moment the leaves begin to turn gives you all the fall feels. There’s nothing like reaching up and twisting off a fresh-off-the-branch apple and bite into the crispy sweet goodness. What’s even better? Apples fit into any weight loss routine. Health benefits An average size apple (100g) has only 65 calories, 15g of carbs, 13g of natural sugars, 2g of fiber, and 0g of fat.1 Plus, they’re also an excellent source of potassium, an essential mineral that helps maintain hydration and control blood pressure.2 One apple contains 104 mg of potassium, which provides about 4% of your daily recommended value.3 Apples provide maximum fullness for a small number of calories making them ideal for a weight loss program. How to eat them Apple and peanut butter is a tried and true staple, but if you’re looking for something different, here are a few ideas: make a dip for sliced apples with some nonfat Greek yogurt, a dash of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey; try pairing sliced apples with a slice of cheddar or string cheese; finally, sauté some skinned, sliced apples in a teaspoon of whipped butter and dash of cinnamon for a treat reminiscent of apple pie. Photo by Yulia Khlebnikova on Unsplash Cranberries Is it too soon for cranberry sauce? Thanksgiving will be here before you know it! Cranberries are in season in the fall and it’s the perfect time to incorporate them into your meal routine. Not to mention they’re 87% water, so they’re nutritious without tons of calories.[4] Health benefits A 1-cup serving of fresh cranberries has 46 calories, 12g of carbs, 3.6g of fiber, and 4.27g of natural sugar. They’re rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, carotene, and Lutein and zeaxanthin.[4] Fresh or frozen cranberries are low in calories and packed with fiber making them ideal for a weight loss-style diet. Dried cranberries can be part of a weight loss program too, with a smaller portion size. A ¼-cup portion of dried cranberries has 123 calories, 33 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 29 grams of sugar, and no protein or fat. How to eat them Toss a handful in your morning oatmeal or cereal for a tangy, sweet bite. Or try this recipe for cranberry sauce that’s perfect on any holiday table: Homemade Cranberry Sauce – In a medium saucepan, combine 1 ¼ cup water, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries, 1 teaspoon orange peel, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract, and 1 dash of kosher salt. Simmer, stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Remove pan from the heat and let cool. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Serve warm or cold. Figs If you haven’t had the opportunity to try figs, now is a better time than ever. This purple tear-dropped-shaped fruit isn’t actually a fruit – it’s a flower! Its edible purple exterior houses the soft, sweet pink flesh that contains hundreds of seeds. Fresh figs are low in calories and pack a nutritious punch. Health benefits One small fig has 30 calories, 8 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber, and 7 grams of sugar. They’re excellent sources of calcium, potassium, and vitamin A.[5] Figs have traditionally been used as a natural remedy for constipation.[6] Good news for those with IBS, a study revealed consuming figs helped relieve symptoms including frequency of pain, bloating, and constipation.[7] How to eat them Fresh figs are best eaten raw. They’re completely edible — from the skin to the flesh, to the seeds. Feel free to peel the outer layer if you choose. While figs are delicious as a quick snack on their own, they’re also perfect in other ways. Top some plain yogurt with sliced figs, crushed nuts and a drizzle of honey. Or jazz up your morning oatmeal with fresh figs. They’re also the perfect addition to a cheese platter. Pears There’s nothing quite like biting into a sweet, juicy pear. And if your goal is weight loss, they’re the perfect addition. One medium pear has about 100 calories and 6 grams of fiber, making them a filling and nutritious snack.[8] Health benefits Pears fiber content consists of both soluble and insoluble fiber, making them ideal for gut health and bowel regularity.[9] If you’re constipated, pears are here to help. How to eat them Cut a pear in half, sprinkle it with cinnamon, and pop it in the oven for 15 minutes. You’ll have a delicious spin on apple pie without the hefty calories. Pomegranate Break open a pomegranate and discover hundreds of gorgeous red seeds (or arils) that are just as delicious to eat. This low-carb fruit is ideal for a weight loss program because if you eat the arils straight from the fruit it takes a while to eat, and ½-cup of pomegranate arils has 75 calories and only 16 grams of carbs with 4 of those coming from fiber.[10] Health benefits Pomegranates are one of the most nutritious fruits around. They’re packed with powerful antioxidant compounds that are three times as strong as wine and green tea.[11] Several studies have shown the benefits of pomegranate juice on heart health, including improving triglyceride and cholesterol levels, as well as reducing blood pressure.[12, 13, 14] How to eat them Pomegranate arils are easy to enjoy. Try sprinkling them on some yogurt or oatmeal. Toss them into your salad or grain bowl. Add them to smoothies. Fall vegetables Beets Beets sometimes get a bad rap that they’re high in sugar. Believe it or not, beets are highly nutritious and contain less sugar than you think! A ½ cup serving of sliced beets has only 37 calories and 7 grams of sugar! With so few calories, they pack a big nutrient punch containing essential vitamins and minerals including folate, magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron, and vitamin B6.[15] Health benefits Studies show that regular consumption of beets has a blood-pressuring lowering effect due to their high dietary nitrate content.[16] How to eat them If eaten raw, peel off the exterior layer first. Then grate into salads, soups, and grain bowls. Beets are usually roasted, boiled, or steamed, then cut into slices or chunks. Eat them alone, blend them into hummus or a smoothie, or try them as a light snack tossed with some crumbled goat cheese and pickled sliced onions. Photo by Jodi Pender on Unsplash Brussels Sprouts If your goal is weight loss, definitely add Brussels sprouts to your menu. These little mini cabbages are packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Plus, for a one-cup serving of Brussels sprouts, you’re looking at only 38 calories, 8 grams of carbs, and 3 grams of fiber.[17] Health benefits Brussels sprouts are incredibly rich in vitamin K, which is essential for blood clotting and bone health.[18] They are also an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin C, required for iron absorption and immune health.[19] How to eat them Try shredding Brussels sprouts into a salad. Blanch them then toss with a bit of olive oil and sea salt. Try roasting Brussels sprouts by cutting them in half, spreading them onto a baking sheet, spraying with nonstick spray, a dash of salt, and pepper; then roast at 400-425 for 25-30 minutes. Kale Kale is the ultimate superfood. A single cup serving of raw kale provides 206% of your daily vitamin A needs, 684% of the DV for vitamin K, and 134% of your vitamin C needs. It’s very low in calories (only 7 calories per cup of raw kale) and packed with fiber.[20] Health benefits Kale is ideal for a weight loss program because it’s low in calories, is a good source of fiber, and is primarily made up of water. This means a large portion will fill you up (and keep you full) for very few calories. How to eat them Some love raw kale salads, others find it bitter. Try tossing frozen kale in smoothies, or enjoy kale sautéed with a bit of salt and pepper. To make kale chips, spread some leaves out on a baking sheet, spray with nonstick spray and sprinkle with some salt. Bake at 350° degrees for 20 minutes, or until crispy. Sweet Potatoes Sweet potato pie is right up there as one of the best holiday desserts of all time. Pie aside, sweet potatoes themselves are naturally sweet and packed with nutrients. One cup of baked sweet potato has 180 calories, 4 grams of protein, and 7 grams of fiber.[21] Health benefits Sweet potatoes contain 769% of the daily recommended value of vitamin A. Vitamin A is responsible for vision and eye health.[22] Sweet potatoes also contain both soluble and insoluble fiber – which helps keep you regular and maintain gut health. How to eat them The options are endless when it comes to sweet potatoes. A dash of cinnamon and a teaspoon of whipped butter is perfect. Or try tossing them in the air fryer for sweet potato fries. Cut sweet potatoes into wedges, bake or roast, then top with your favorite toppings like fat-free ricotta cheese and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup. Take it a step further with a couple of arils of pomegranate. Pumpkin The quintessential fall staple — pumpkins aren’t just for carving or porches! Pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin soup, pumpkin ravioli … the list goes on. And with only 44 calories per cup (cooked and mashed), pumpkins are a low-calorie, nutrient-dense carb choice for a weight loss program.[23] Health benefits Like sweet potatoes, pumpkin is an incredible source of vitamin A, providing 245% of the DV. It’s low in carbs (12 grams per cup), and high in fiber (3 grams per cup).[23] Plus, pumpkin seeds are highly nutritious too! A one-ounce portion of dried pumpkin seeds has 9 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and 11 grams of healthy fats.[24] Pumpkin is also a great source of vitamin C — both vitamin A and C are immune-boosting vitamins that can help strengthen your immune system and help fight infections.[25, 26] How to eat them Before you throw away your porch pumpkin, consider roasting it! Here’s how it’s done: Preheat oven to 400° degrees F. Cut the pumpkin in half. Remove the pulp and seeds. Then cut the pumpkin into slices, about 1-inch thick. Place the pumpkin slices on a prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil or spray with nonstick oil spray. Season with salt, pepper, or your favorite seasonings. Roast for 15-20 minutes, until the pumpkin is soft. Mushrooms Who knew an edible fungus would be so delicious and nutritious?! A one-cup portion of raw mushrooms has only 15 calories, 2 grams of protein, and 2 grams of carbs making them an excellent choice for a weight loss-style program.[27] They’re incredibly versatile and provide several essential vitamins and minerals including phosphorous, potassium, selenium, folate, and choline.[27] Health benefits Mushrooms contain beta-glucans, a class of dietary fiber that plays a role in the prevention and treatment of obesity and metabolic syndrome.[28] Research on beta-glucan in the areas of insulin resistance, hypertension and obesity is ongoing.[29] How to eat them Toss mushrooms in everyday meals to bump up the fiber and nutritional value – add to tomato sauce, soups, salads, casseroles, sandwiches, etc. If you’re looking for a delicious way to lose weight without the guesswork while incorporating all of your favorite fall fruits and vegetables — Jenny Craig can help.

    I am doing the rapid results max program and almost done with the first week. For those of you who have done this program, are you only allowed the fresh and free vegetables as an add on for lunch and dinner or can you choose one of the starchy vegetables?

      You should use Fresh & Free.

    Worked for JC several years ago and also worked the program and lost weight easily. Now I find myself with about 50 lbs I don't need and chronic back pain and multiple other health issues. I'm making this investment in myself with my 65th BD coming up next month so instead of a cruise and tons of food, it's time to get healthy as a slide into the third trimester of my life.  I remember the food being very good so I hope that hasn't changed and the folks are nice and don't judge.  So....off I go!  Glad to be back and looking forward to seeing less of me in the mirror!

    I have been doing the max on Jenny and have lost only 11b a week. I am a very long Jenny client and trying something different.  Could it be the time I am eating or that I have stopped working out. What is the best time to eat recharge bar, breakfast, lunch, dinner.  Can I skip breakfast and still loose weight.

    I do eat most food late in the day.

     

    Thanks for your help, Jane

    1. dakotasgram

      dakotasgram

      I eat my breakfast late.  I do the 14 hour fasting so that only leaves 10 hours to get my meals and snacks in.  I do not eat the recharge bars and they will not stop sending them to me.  They are 190 calories and I don’t really like them.  Maybe try taking a short walk after you eat a late dinner.  I try to move a lot.  8-11,000 steps a day.  Don’t always make it but I try.  I’m down 16.4 lbs in 8 weeks.  That was spending a week in Colorado without Jenny food and 5 nights camping at the Fryebuy Fair in Maine.  Mostly with Jenny food plus a few treats.  Keep going.

    I'm back! 13 years ago, I lost 70 lbs on JC. I'm back, not looking to lose 105 lbs. Starting week 3 and I'm feeling great. I've been exercising on my elliptical for 30 mins and today even did a workout on my bowflex. I'm enjoying this new found energy and I'm only down 8 lbs! I can't imagine how I'll feel when I get 105 lbs off this frame! I don't think about all the money I'm spending on the program,  I think of all the money I'm saving by not having to go buy new clothes because nothing in my closet fits, can't wait to shop in my closet. Also all the money I'll save from not having knee surgeries or hip surgeries, and prescriptions for high blood pressure.  This investment is for me!

    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      That's great! I feel motivated by the clothes as well--it costs a fortune to look decent in the next size up, whereas moving a size down is easy because I have been there and have the wardrobe!

      I'm back on JC too after 5 years. I thought I would give the new program a try. I just started week 2. I lost 5 lbs my first week, so that is encouraging. I do recall that weight loss tends to level off after the 1st week, at least for the over 50 crowd. I'm not discouraged though. I just moved to a new house, so all the activity with moving boxes, furniture and cleanup has helped when it comes to exercise. Good luck to the rest of you that restarted JC. We can do it!

    HI!

    Newbie question here...I am in my second week, lost about 7 lbs. so far and I just started exercising again with the newfound energy and confidence.  Very happy!

    My question is this- I was chatting with my coach this week choosing my foods for next week and she gave me the option of a bagel for breakfast.  I said, "I haven't had a bagel in a while!" She said, "It's good with laughing cow cheese on it, you should try that".

    But I was under the impression that we are not supposed to add anything to the menu- except for the fruit and veggies on the menu for the day?  I am really following this to the letter and we were at the end of our call so I just said ok to her suggestion.

    Is anyone adding things to their menus?  I am assuming the menu is the 1200 calories I am allotted and something else would throw it of...

    Thanks for any guidance you can provide!

    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi Leslie,

       

      You get a milk with your breakfast, I believe, depending on the menu, on the days you don't have a shake. Also depending on your menu you get a protein or two (or more).

       

      Check the app or the booklet for the exchange, but I'm pretty sure some cream cheese or laughing cow cheese could be one of those things from your menu.

    Hello my fellow JC family. This is my first time on JC and I am on day 2. I must be honest I had Gastric Sleeve surgery several years ago. I have learned the hard way that it is truly a tool and that I need more tools in my belt for this journey. With a high stress job in healthcare, the pandemic and relocation I have been stress eating.  With that being said I have re-developed some old habits and put on 30 pounds. I realized I needed structure and the no brainer with what to eat. It's just where I am at this moment in my life and realize it's okay. I am excited to be here and look for getting and receiving continuous support.

    Thanks for letting me share!!

    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi Cateye! Good luck on your journey. I've been at it over 8 weeks now and am realizing this is only worth it if I develop habits that I am willing to do for the rest of my life. Sure, the food is tasty and so easy, but it has to be part of my long-term plan to take care of myself.

    2. JaneE

      JaneE

      Hi Cateye, I have been a JC client for a long time and managed to keep my weight off or stay with in 10 lbs.  I also just retired from a high stress healthcare job and forgot about all the good eating habits I learned a long the way. This is the heaviest I have been in a long time, but will take off with JC. Just forget about what you did and move on as you are.  Good Luck!!

      Thanks for you healthcare services!!

    Hello, everyone! I’m brand new and start tomorrow on the Rapid Results Max program. I was looking over my first day and I have a question. I know that I’m supposed to fast for 14 hrs, but my question is about the 12 hrs of eating window. I am having the pumpkin loaf and a shake for breakfast. But could I actually have the shake with my fruit snack at 3pm? Or what if I wanted the cupcake with my fruit snack instead of with my dinner? Is that allowed? Thank you!

    1. stargazer26

      stargazer26

      This is day 5 for me. I have swapped lunch and dinner on occasion and still losing. This morning's breakfast was waffle. I swapped the cheese curls around and brought fruit instead. I used some of my afternoon fruit on top of my waffle this morning.  I just read that on the 14 hour fast that we should not drink diet soda. Ooops! I have been drinking diet Ginger Ale in the evenings. I will try to go without it this evening. 

       

      I am not sure what our consultant will tell us about swapping things like I have or as you asked. I'll ask on Friday when we have our call. I need to do what works for me. I get too hungry having fruit with dinner. But if I wait about a half hour and have a Jenny snack, I am fine. That is how my body is responding so I am going with it. Good luck. In five days I have lost 6 lbs. so whatever changes I have made have not hindered my weight loss.

      Hi LSE! Of course your consultant can give you the official JC line on if this is acceptable. I believe it is per the plan--just eat within your time window.

       

      I personally find that if I try to force myself too much to adhere exactly to every single rule of a plan, I can do it for a few months but then I get burnt out. This time around I'm doing my best to follow the plan, as long as it works for me. So under my personalized "do what works for me" version of Rapid Results I am eating the food whatever time of day I want to. Breakfast is my favorite meal so sometimes I save it for "breakfast for dinner". My adaptation of the plan may not be as effective as losing weight quickly as the official plan, but I'm okay with that. I'm going slow and steady.

       

      Best of luck!

      I have my shake for my snack throughout the day.  Your coach I’ll advise you.  But I think as long as you eat just what is on the menu for the day….when you eat it doesn’t matter.

    Almost to week 4 on my plan.  I found foods I didn’t like at all.  What is the best way to customize the next 4 weeks? Also how important is the recharge bar? I’m only eating it because it’s on the menu.  I don’t have problems doing the 14 hour fast without it.

      Hi DByrd,

       

      I like to continue to follow the weeks 1-4 over and over again (I'm on week 9, doing week 1 for the third time). I then substitute out a few more things than I did in the past. I do this so I keep having variety, because if I only pick my favorites I know I'll get bored.

       

      My consultant told me someone she knows does the exact same menu every single week.

       

      I say do what you want to do. 

       

      Same with the bar. I was not big on the RR Max bar, so I'm doing RR with the bar I like-chocolate and peanut butter. If you prefer to skip the bar altogether I think they give you a substitution for those calories--a protein and a milk of your choice or something (depends on Canada vs US so I don't recall exactly but it's in the materials and your "consultant" can tell you exactly what it is)

    I wish after you lose tge weight that Jenny had some kind of follow-on program like weight watchers that really helps you change your habits. When I started trying to combine normal food with Jenny, my counselor quit calling me. Very disappointed

      @Sally red there is a small group of us in the daily sharing thread that help each other along the way.  A few of us are on maintenance.  Check out our group.  We start a new thread every week.  Maybe you will find some of what you need there.
