  4. The truth about calories Photo by Ella Olsson on Unsplash When you think about food, it’s easy to label the calories they contain as being “good” or “bad” based on what you’re eating. But calories aren’t the most important element of weight loss. Taking the nutrition of your food into consideration, rather than solely focusing on the calories, will help you build a foundation for healthy weight loss. A calorie is a measurement of energy for foods and beverages. The total number of calories you’ll find at the top of a nutrition label is actually measured in kilocalories (1 kilocalorie = 1,000 calories). On their own, calories are so small, they would make measurements difficult. That 354-(kilo)calorie double hamburger would clock in at 354,000 calories if not for this handy conversion. The total number of kilocalories something contains is calculated by adding its energy-rich macronutrients together, which include carbohydrates, fats and proteins.1 A food’s micronutrients are its vitamins and minerals, which don’t factor into caloric amounts. “Think about your body like a car — if macronutrients are the gasoline that powers your body, then wiper fluid, oil and brake fluid are the micronutrients that keep everything running smoothly,” says Rodriquez. The energy that calories provide helps to fuel everything from sleeping at night to digesting a meal. How many calories should I be eating a day? You may have heard the phrase “calories in, calories out” before — here’s why it’s important for weight loss. When you eat more than your body needs (calories in), it may cause you to gain weight. But if your body uses more calories than you eat (calories out), you may lose weight. Rodriquez suggests following the 80/20 rule: you’ll aim to reduce 80% of your calories by eating a healthy diet and burn 20% of your calories with exercise. In doing so, you’ll create a calorie deficit, where you’ll burn more calories than you eat. Harvard Health offers a simple way to estimate the number of calories you need to consume each day to lose weight:2 Multiply your current weight by 15. This result represents about how many calories per pound of body weight you’ll need to maintain your weight if you’re moderately active. Subtract 500-1,000 calories from this number. This will give you the approximate number of calories you need to eat each day to gradually lose 1-2 pounds per week. Photo by Nate Johnston on Unsplash While it’s possible to roughly estimate the number of calories you should consume daily, your doctor, a dietitian or weight loss consultant. can provide a more accurate range. They’ll consider several points, including your weight, age, gender, height and activity level. “Keep in mind that weight loss is different for everyone,” says Rodriquez. “What works for one person may not work for you. That’s why it’s so important to focus on eating nutritious foods and exercise regularly.” The number of calories you need may not stay the same. As your weight changes, so will your body’s needs: The number of calories you consume at the beginning of your weight loss journey may need to be adjusted as you lose weight, she explains. The lowest number of calories per day that a person should eat to healthily lose weight and continue to function properly is 1200 calories, Rodriquez says. Eating any less may put your health at risk and leave you feeling lethargic, anxious and extremely hungry.3 Focus on food quality To feel your best, Rodriquez recommends eating a variety of fresh (or frozen!), nutritious foods, including: Non-starchy vegetables Lean proteins Fruits Whole grains Healthy fats To lose weight, she stresses the importance of food quality — not just the number of calories that they contain. “Make sure to eat a variety of high-quality foods to give your body the nutrients, like the vitamins and minerals it needs to thrive,” she says. All calories aren’t the same Proteins, carbohydrates and fats all contain a specific number of calories per gram:4 Proteins: 4 calories per gram Carbohydrates: 4 calories per gram Fats: 9 calories per gram With that in mind, reaching for foods that have healthy sources of fat, protein and carbs will help you stick to a balanced diet. The foods you choose make a difference Photo by Fertnig on iStock Lean proteins Lean proteins like chicken, turkey and fish contain less saturated fat than beef or pork. Saturated fat can increase your “bad” cholesterol levels, also known as LDL cholesterol, which may lead to an increased risk for a stroke or heart attack. Carbohydrates Carbohydrates, on the other hand, can be one of three types: starchy, sugary or fibrous.5 Opt for fiber-rich carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, instead of sugary carbs (cane sugar, molasses) and starchy carbs (white rice, white bread). Healthy fats When choosing healthy fats, here’s a helpful rule of thumb: many healthy fats, like olive oil and avocado oil, will be liquid at room temperature.6 Enjoy smaller amounts of these fats to keep your meals balanced. Avocados, nuts and seeds are all great sources of healthy fats. While you enjoy a delicious, balanced diet, be sure to pay attention to portion sizes and take part in physical activity to support your weight loss. Making healthy weight loss choices Photo by Anh Nguyen on Unsplash When you’re trying to lose weight, calories shouldn’t be your only focus. Many other factors can affect weight loss, including the amount of sleep you’re getting and how much stress you’re experiencing. Counting calories can be a tedious exercise to do day in, day out. Instead, consider meeting with a healthcare professional to formulate a plan, or joining a weight loss program to get the information and support you’ll need on your journey. “Don’t miss out on enjoying your meals because you’re concerned about the calorie count,” says Rodriquez. “The foods you eat help to nourish your body. By making healthy choices, you can feel good — not guilty — about what you’re eating.” Jenny Craig combines delicious, chef-crafted entrées with easy-to-follow menus designed by a knowledgeable nutrition team. Menus range from 1200 to 2300 calories a day to provide a basis for your weight loss and flexibility to fit your specific needs. Once you’ve joined the program, the menus you’ll follow can be adjusted by your weight loss consultant as you get closer to your goal. Plus, portion sizing is already done for you, so there’s no calorie counting needed! Instead, you can focus on what’s most important: learning healthy strategies and getting the nutrition you need.

  9. Don’t worry — we’ve got your back. Read on for more information about how smart snacks can — and should — be a part of your weight loss strategy. We’re also sharing nine healthy snack ideas for weight loss! Health benefits of smart snacking Photo by iprogressman on iStock While common wisdom used to suggest that eating only three times per day was a cornerstone of weight loss or maintenance, experts are finding that eating more frequently — with healthy snacks playing a part of a healthy daily diet — is often better. Here’s a look at how healthy snacks may aid your weight loss and improve your overall health. Healthy snacks help control hunger. According to the American Diabetes Association1 and many other experts, well-balanced snacks can help keep hunger in check, which may keep you from overeating at your next meal.2 And a 2016 review suggests that snacks may help reduce the risk of obesity by promoting satiety and appetite control, and potentially prevent overeating.3 They’re a great way to boost your intake of important nutrients. At a time when the vast majority of Americans are not meeting the recommended daily intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dairy, incorporating healthy snacks into your daily diet can help you increase your consumption of these health-promoting foods.4 They may help with weight loss. Experts at Harvard Health5 report that there seems to be a relationship between eating less frequently and greater weight, noting that the heavier a person is, the less often he or she typically eats. They point out that eating healthy snacks can help prevent you from becoming overly hungry — as being ravenous may increase your risk of overeating unhealthy foods. They can help keep your blood sugar steady. Photo by Mc Jefferson Agloro on Unsplash While research is a bit conflicting in this area, many experts, such as those at Sanford Health,6 say that eating two or three snacks throughout the day can help prevent “sugar crashes,” especially if those snacks contain a balance of protein, fiber, carbohydrates and fat. They may help reduce your risk of developing certain medical conditions. According to a February 2017 statement from the American Heart Association,7 eating more frequently — which includes snacks — seems to improve risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. They can give you an energy boost. If you’re plagued by mid-afternoon work slumps, having a healthy snack can give you the energy you need. They can help you recover more quickly after a workout. A well-balanced snack can support your recovery efforts post-workout. In fact, eating a healthy snack of protein and carbohydrates (think a banana and yogurt or an apple with a small amount of nut butter) within 15 to 30 minutes of exercising can help replace your energy stores and assist with muscle recovery, research has found.8 Tips for healthy snacking Now that you know about the importance of including healthy snacks in your daily diet, let’s look at ways you can make sure your snacking is as healthy as possible. 1. Avoid impulsive snacking The quality of your snacks matter! Instead of grabbing something out of the vending machine when you feel like a snack, take what researchers call an “intentional approach to eating.”7 This means planning what you will eat throughout the day — so you can be prepared when hunger calls. Irregular eating patterns can be detrimental not only for weight control, but for your overall cardiometabolic health, researchers say.7 2. Use your snacks as an opportunity to replace less-healthy foods with healthier ones Photo by Benjamin Wong on Unsplash A 2014 Nielsen report found that Americans’ favorite snacks are cheese, chips and chocolate — fresh fruit came in at No. 5!9 When in doubt, vegetables and fruit (in moderation) are always a good choice. If you’re in the mood for chips or something sweet, choose a healthier version — Jenny Craig offers portion controlled options that include BBQ Crisps, Cheese Curls and a S’mores Bar. 3. Practice portion control If you need some help figuring out how much you should eat, use this handy portion size guide. 4. Choose more nutrient dense foods Think vegetables, which have more fiber, fewer calories, more water and less fat over something like a pastry that isn’t as nutrient dense. Nutrient rich foods, like vegetables, can help keep yourself feeling fuller, longer.10 5. Avoid late-night snacking When you’re asleep, your body does not process large meals or snacks as efficiently as during the day. According to the Cleveland Clinic,11 if you eat late at night, any fats and cholesterol you consume will stay in your blood longer than they should (as opposed to eating during the day, which allows your liver to process these substances more efficiently). This can be detrimental to your heart and kidneys, experts say.11 6. Plan, prepare and portion out your snacks ahead of time Make them easy to grab in the early-morning work rush. 7. If you’re on the Jenny Craig program, plan on eating three snacks a day Two of those snacks will be from your Jenny Craig menu (try our delicious Caramel Peanut Delight Essential Nutrition Bar for a healthy morning snack, our creamy Vanilla Cream Shake for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up or our decadent Chocolate Lava Cake in the evening). In addition, you should have one other snack of your choosing, such as fruit. And enjoy as many non-starchy vegetables as you’d like! 8. Not following the Jenny Craig program? Pair different foods together Photo on iStock by warrengoldswain For instance, enjoy a healthy, fiber-rich carbohydrate such as a fruit and/or vegetable with a bit of lean protein for staying power. You can also include a small amount of healthy fat in your snacks. Pro tip: Pair your snack with water or another sugar-free beverage to help fill you up and stay hydrated. Healthy snacks for your diet Now it’s time to put it all together! Try these nine delicious, healthy snacks to keep yourself feeling satisfied and energized throughout your day. If you’re following the Jenny Craig program, make sure to check with your consultant before making any swaps to help maximize your weight loss efforts. 6-10 almonds and a ½ cup of berries 1 small apple with 1 teaspoon nut butter (watch for added sugar) 1 cup of baby carrots with 2 tablespoons of bean dip ½ cup edamame and kale chips (made in an air fryer — here’s how to use one) 1 hard-boiled egg and celery sticks 2 tablespoons of hummus with cucumber, celery, carrots or jicama 1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese with tomatoes Low-fat string cheese and red bell pepper 6 oz. of nonfat plain Greek yogurt with berries or chia seeds (experts12 say yogurt is a nutritional powerhouse that may help prevent insulin resistance) We hope we’ve helped you understand the important role smart snacks can play in your daily diet. Remember, they can be delicious, they can be healthy — and they can help you on your path to greater health. Enjoy!

  13. 5:30 a.m. Good morning! It’s 5:30 a.m. and my first alarm is going off. I stay in bed to check my social media feeds and spend a few minutes on the Jenny Craig Members Support Group. It’s my favorite place to go – I’m always liking other people’s stories and encouraging them on their journeys. Wait, where did the time go?! Realizing I only have a few minutes to make myself look presentable for work, I quickly get ready and head off to the school. 6:50 - 8:00 a.m. Teaching my classes (while staying hydrated!) I work at a middle and a high school teaching music (specifically orchestra), to over 100 amazing students! I recently won a YETI water bottle by following Jenny Craig on Instagram and commenting on one of their posts. I use it every day to make sure I’m drinking plenty of water throughout the day at work. 8:15 a.m. Time for breakfast I try to have a later breakfast, since it helps me feel less hungry by the end of the workday. If I can handle teaching 60 kids before 8 a.m., finding some time to eat breakfast between classes is no problem! My favorite breakfast items are the Chocolate Muffin, the Maple French Toast with half of a banana on top, and the Cheddar Cheese Omelet. 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Music lessons and lunch While I’m teaching my group music lessons, I always have a Chocolate Dream Shake on hand. I usually sip on it slowly so I’m less hungry leading up to lunch. The school day typically ends around 2:00 p.m., unless I’m running a miscellaneous club. As a teacher who also works as a musician on the weekends, I often struggle to find time to meal prep. One of the things that drew me to the Jenny Craig program was the nutritious, ready-made meals. I work in two schools and run multiple after-school clubs, so with my busy schedule, the last thing I want to do is meal prep during my time off. 3:00 - 4:45 p.m. Gym time and what I love about my Jenny Craig consultations I find that having a routine has made my new lifestyle a lot easier. I try to go to the gym as often as possible during the week and have a trainer on Sunday mornings. Going to my Sunday morning consultations are now a part of my routine, too. All the consultants at the Jenny Craig center are so sweet. Once I started Jenny Craig, I realized that this wasn’t just a diet so that I could fit in a dress, it was a way to change my lifestyle. Now that I am following the program, I find that I sleep longer throughout the night and I have more energy during the day when I’m teaching. I love going to my consultations on the weekends, bringing the food home, and feeling ready for the week. That’s what inspired me to join Jenny in the first place and it’s what’s making this lifestyle change an easy one to follow. 5:00 - 6:45 p.m. Dinner Living with an Italian grandmother has been the biggest blessing I could ever have, but with this blessing comes her talents as a cook. These foods made an impact on the way that I ate before joining Jenny Craig. I have a hard time at dinner when I see the gourmet meals she makes. But at the end of the day, when I’m eating the food from Jenny Craig, I feel healthy and energetic. I find when I eat food that is not prepared healthily, I sometimes don’t feel well and can’t even move from the couch. 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Dessert (aka the best part of the day!) and bedtime I wind down for the day by either watching “Jeopardy!” with my grandma or solving every puzzle on “Wheel of Fortune” like a champ with my boyfriend. If I could live off the Vanilla Buttercream Cupcake and the Chocolate Lava Cake, I’d be a happy lady. When I first started Jenny Craig, I just wanted more dessert. I went to the Facebook Group and commented about how I was feeling, and members reminded me that sticking with the program was for the best. They encouraged me to remember why I joined Jenny Craig, and that really helped me! I definitely suggest joining the group – it’ll help you stay motivated. After a full day of teaching, I am tired and it’s time to get to bed! Thanks for joining me today! *Typical weight loss on the Rapid Results program is 11.6 pounds in the first four weeks and 1-2 pounds per week thereafter.

  23. If you always feel hungry — you may feel better knowing that you’re far from alone, and that there are specific reasons you — and many others like you — always feel like your stomach is growling. We’ve rounded up some of the top proven ways you can lessen those hunger pangs and feel satisfied at the same time. Read on for our 10 best tips! How satiety works Photo by Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash Before we get into the reasons why you may be feeling hungry all the time, let’s look at how your body (and brain) work together to promote feelings of satiety, or the comfortable fullness that should occur after you eat. The stomach has tiny receptors that detect when your stomach starts to expand after you’ve eaten food. These receptors then send signals to the brain that your stomach is becoming full, which in turn trigger feelings of satiety and reduced appetite. It’s important to point out, however, that the effect lasts for a relatively short time, as soon as the receptors quit sending signals to the brain, feelings of satiety begin to diminish. In other words, your sense of fullness can disappear shortly after a meal is eaten and hunger can reappear, researchers say.1 Several hormones are also involved in satiety, two primary ones being leptin and ghrelin. Secreted by fat cells in your body, leptin acts to suppress eating, while ghrelin — the “hunger hormone” — is secreted by the stomach to boost appetite at mealtimes.2 If levels of either of these hormones are off, you may find yourself always feeling hungry. Why am I always hungry? Whether it’s your lifestyle, your diet or even your DNA, there are some very good reasons why you may be feeling hungry all the time — but the good news is that there are ways to help address them. Here are 10 reasons why you may be feeling hungry all the time — and tips to help you feel satisfied. 1. Having too much stress Even though short-term stress (like being stuck in traffic or having an argument with a family member) can dull your appetite temporarily by causing a release of adrenaline, Harvard Health3 reports that long-term, chronic stress (like a high-stress job) can cause an increase in a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is known to increase appetite, and also may increase your motivation to eat. What may help: To help keep stress in check, commit to regular stress-management activities. Practicing yoga or meditation, getting regular exercise and practicing a hobby you enjoy can help you stay grounded. 2. Not getting enough sleep Photo by andresr on iStock According to the National Sleep Foundation,4 sleep deprivation increases ghrelin and decreases leptin, which can trigger hunger. In addition, getting too little sleep raises the level of a compound in your body called endocannabinoid, which increases your appetite for specific types of foods such as candy, chips and cookies. In fact, the Sleep Foundation reports, when people don’t get enough sleep, they may consume more than 300 extra calories the next day compared with people who sleep for eight hours. What may help: In addition to getting more sleep, practice some healthy sleep-inducing tips, such as making a nighttime routine, creating a sleep schedule, avoiding caffeine in the late afternoon and evening, and not working out too close to bedtime. Also avoid using electronic devices too close to bedtime, as the blue light emitted from phones, computer screens and the like can disrupt sleep.5 3. Eating too quickly — or too much It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to receive signals from your stomach that it’s full,6 so try to take your time when eating to give this process ample time to work. At the same time, it’s important to be mindful of the amount of food you eat: According to experts,7 the bigger the meal you eat, the more your stomach expands and the quicker your body responds to break down the food. On the other hand, smaller meals don’t expand the stomach as much, and depending on what you eat, may keep you feeling fuller, longer. What may help: You’ve probably heard the expression “stop and smell the roses.” Well, the same goes for food! One study found that people who took 30 minutes to eat a meal felt significantly more full and less hungry than those who rushed and ate their food in five minutes.8 Putting your fork down between bites may also help you slow down. 4. Not eating often enough Low blood sugar, which can occur if you’re not eating frequently enough, can trigger hunger.9 Eat at regular intervals during the day to help keep your blood sugar levels stable. What may help: Plan on eating a healthy meal or snack every few hours, or about six times per day (three meals and three snacks). 5. Getting too little protein in your diet Photo by Louis Hansel on Unsplash Not only is protein an essential nutrient that helps your body function properly, but studies have shown that it is more satiating than other macronutrients10 and that it may help suppress ghrelin.11 What’s more, research12 suggests that it can increase dopamine levels in your body, which activates the reward centers of your brain and may cause you to eat less. What may help: Try to include some protein at every meal and snack. According to the experts at Harvard Health, good protein sources include beans, eggs, fish, legumes, low-fat or nonfat dairy products, nuts, poultry and tofu.13 (A small amount of mixed nuts may be a particularly good choice, as research has shown that they may help reduce ghrelin while increasing satiety and helping maintain stable blood glucose and insulin levels.14) 6. Eating too little fiber According to the Mayo Clinic, foods that are high in fiber not only add bulk, but they take longer to digest, which can help you feel full longer.15 An added benefit: Some types of soluble fiber (the type found in such foods as barley, beans, lentils, oatmeal, nuts, peas and seeds) may help reduce the risk of heart disease.16 Insoluble fiber is also important to consume — it can be found in foods such as wheat bran, vegetables and whole grains.16 Recent animal research suggests that fiber also may act on your brain to suppress appetite.17 What may help: The National Institutes of Health18 recommends getting at least 21-38 grams of fiber each day (the average American only gets 16 grams a day!). Be sure to drink plenty of water — at least eight glasses a day — to help the fiber you eat pass through your digestive system. Both soluble and insoluble fiber are important for your health, so be sure to consume each type daily. 7. Drinking alcohol Alcohol not only seems to stimulate appetite, but it can reduce your inhibitions and resolve, causing you to eat more. Alcohol typically contains a high concentration of empty calories, which can derail your weight loss efforts.19 What may help: Instead of an alcoholic drink, opt for plain water, a calorie-free drink or sparkling water with fresh fruit. 8. Getting too much sugar in your diet Photo by Joanna Kosinska on Unsplash Added sugar in all forms can hinder your weight loss efforts, but research suggests that one form — high fructose corn syrup — can be particularly detrimental.20 Researchers have found that this type of sugar can increase appetite by raising ghrelin levels while reducing the functioning of your brain’s satiety centers. What may help: High fructose corn syrup, as well as other types of added sugars, lurks in all sorts of foods, from salad dressings and drinks to crackers and desserts. So get in the habit of reading labels and opt for whole foods (fresh or frozen!) whenever possible. And don’t worry about the natural sugars found in fruits, vegetables, dairy products and other healthy foods — they’re usually not the problem.21 9. Cutting too much fat from your diet Despite the bad rap it’s gotten in the past, fat is actually a necessary part of a healthy diet, as it has a number of benefits: it provides energy, helps your body absorb vitamins and minerals and is necessary for muscle movement.22 It also may slow digestion, helping you to feel full after eating.7 What may help: The Cleveland Clinic recommends getting 20% to 35% of your calories from fat every day.23 For example, you could consume approximately 44-77 grams of fat while following a 2,000-calorie diet. There are four types of fat: monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated and trans fat. Monounsaturated fat (found in olive and peanut oils; nuts and nut butters; olives; and avocado) and polyunsaturated fat (found in walnuts, corn and soybean oil, and fish) are the healthier kinds. Saturated fat (found in animal products such as meat and cheese) should be limited. Trans fat (found in margarine, shortening and powdered coffee creamer) should be avoided as much as possible. 10. Your DNA You may be genetically predisposed to increased feelings of hunger if your appetite-regulating hormones, ghrelin and leptin, do not work as efficiently as they should. Since they are not as effective at signaling feelings of fullness as they should be, you may be less likely to feel satisfied following a meal.24 What may help: While there’s not much you can do to alter your genetic makeup, there are ways to help offset less-than-optimal levels of your hunger hormones. Follow the tips above, plus these: Follow a healthy meal plan. This includes spacing your meals and snacks evenly throughout the day to keep your blood sugar levels steady and to avoid food cravings. Jenny Craig’s science-backed meal plans help you stay on track while still enjoying some of your favorite foods (hello, macaroni and cheese!). Eat more high-volume, low-calorie foods. Fill up on food that is high in nutrition but low in calories, such as plenty of non-starchy vegetables and a moderate amount of fruit. Filling half your plate with veggies will help you feel more satisfied with fewer calories. Avoid sugary beverages. They’re high in calories and less satiating than solid foods. Practice mindful eating. Try to turn off the TV or computer, put down your phone and tune into your food instead. Research shows that people who are distracted during a meal or don’t pay attention to what they are eating tend to consume more than if they are eating mindfully. On the other hand, eating mindfully is associated with eating less later on.25 Plus, paying attention to your meals may increase your enjoyment of them. The next time you wonder, “Why am I always hungry?” we hope you can use a few of these tips to help you feel satisfied!

  25. Age 32, Vacaville, CA., Married with 3 children I’m a stay-at-home mom with a husband and three active boys under the age of five. My life is constantly busy and hectic. I began my weight loss journey with Jenny Craig in October of 2017, after the birth of my third child. At 208 lbs., I was feeling sluggish with little energy. I’d had success with Jenny Craig in the past, so I knew it was the perfect solution to help me lose my post-pregnancy weight. After having three children in five years, I was struggling to lose 70 lbs. of excess weight. I was able to lose 30 lbs. on my own, but realized I needed help to lose the last 40 lbs. I decided it was time to go back to Jenny Craig. #wistia_chrome_25 #wistia_grid_31_wrapper .w-css-reset{font-size:14px;} #wistia_chrome_25 #wistia_grid_31_wrapper

planned out and prepared was convenient and a great time-saver. I was able to continue breastfeeding† and felt confident that I was receiving the proper nutrition to healthily lose weight while nursing my baby. I started out on the Classic Program and then switched to Jenny Craig’s newest program, Rapid Results, which works with the body’s natural circadian rhythms. My day was split into two 12-hour periods. The first 12 hours are for nourishment when you eat your healthy meals and snacks, and the next 12-hour period is for rejuvenation — giving the body a chance to rest and regenerate. I liked knowing when to start and stop eating. I ate within the time periods and cut out late-night meals and snacks. This resulted in sleeping better and waking up feeling lighter. Rest is so important when trying to lose weight. I successfully lost 40 lbs.* to reach my goal. I could not have achieved this success without the help of my consultant. I loved the accountability and support that she provided. I knew every week my consultant would be there for me, regardless of what the scale said. Her support and advice were invaluable. I’m healthier and happier now that my extra weight is gone. Not only do I feel more confident about my appearance, but I’m also more apt to try new things. Knowing that I have increased stamina and physical capability makes me feel like I can conquer any challenge. I enjoy playtime with my boys, who are never short of energy. They always want to be outside to ride bikes, play ball and go to the park. Feeling good and energetic allows me to be part of that fun, which is something I find irreplaceable. The whole family, especially the children, are enjoying nutritious foods and developing healthy habits, which hopefully they will continue practicing their whole lives. One weight loss tip I like to share is to have healthy snacks ready! As a busy mom, it’s so easy to skip meals or forget to feed yourself while running around with the kids. The Jenny Craig plan was just what I needed to achieve my weight loss goal. Thanks, Jenny Craig! I could not have done this without you! † Remember to always consult your physician before starting a weight loss program. *Keri lost 27 lbs. on Classic Program and 13 lbs. thereafter on Rapid Results. Members following Classic Program on average, lose 1-2 lbs./wk. and typical weight loss on Rapid Results is 11.6 lbs. in the first four weeks and 1-2 lb./wk. thereafter. Received promotional consideration.
