Hi, I’m Heather Lake a health and lifestyle contributor for Jenny Craig. This is your healthy tip for the week: Don’t skip breakfast! Recent research has found that eating more, earlier in the day, may ward off hunger later in the evening. As you may feel less satiated at night, eating a hearty breakfast may help you counteract any tendencies to overeat in the evening. Opt for a healthy choice to start your day right! Some of our favorite breakfasts include whole-grain, unsweetened cereal with nonfat plain Greek yogurt or our Turkey Bacon & Egg White Sandwich on a multigrain bun. Don’t forget to pair your meal with a small serving of fruit! What’s so bad about skipping breakfast? Photo by Dani Rendina on Unsplash You’re running late for work and rush out the door without grabbing a bite to eat. Swamped with a mile long to-do list, you can’t find the time to eat anything until lunch. We’ve all been there — and feeling “hangry” isn’t exactly the best way to start the day. Skipping breakfast to save some time in the morning might not be beneficial for your health either, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. Instead, try to eat a healthy breakfast — it doesn’t have to take a ton of time to make! Here’s why you should eat breakfast — and the health benefits that could come along with it. Plus, our Registered Dietitian shares her tips on how to create the perfect morning meal. 3 health benefits of eating breakfast It can support your weight loss efforts. If you’re skipping breakfast to lose weight, it could have a negative impact on your health. In one study, regularly skipping breakfast was associated with a higher risk of obesity.1 The good news is, "front-loading" your calories (eating more calories earlier in the day) may help you to feel more satisfied in the evenings and have a healthy effect on your hunger and satiety hormones, experts say.2 You’ll work with your circadian rhythm and metabolism. Circadian rhythms are the body’s behavioral, mental and physical changes that follow a 24-hour cycle of light and dark (and eating with your natural rhythms may help support weight loss!).2,3 Your circadian rhythms also play a part in the way your metabolism works. When you eat breakfast, you’re fueling your body when your metabolism is working efficiently — people tend to burn more calories while they’re awake and active, compared to when they’re asleep. It may have a positive impact on your health. Studies suggest eating breakfast may be good for your health. In one study, people who ate breakfast experienced lower risk factors of cardiovascular disease4 and in another, they had a lower likelihood of developing Type 2 diabetes,5 among other benefits. Check out 10 more reasons why you’ll want to make breakfast a priority every morning! What’s the best breakfast to lose weight? When weight loss is your goal, a balanced meal that includes carbohydrates, lean proteins and healthy fats makes for an ideal breakfast, explains Jenny Craig’s Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Briana Rodriquez. Try to include at least one food from each of these categories. (Here’s how to get the perfect portions every time!) Carbohydrates: Vegetables, whole grains, a small piece of fruit Lean proteins: Eggs, lean meats (chicken, turkey bacon, lean cuts of beef), fat-free cottage cheese Healthy fats: Nut butter, avocado, olive oil Looking for more healthy breakfast options?

    6 Healthy Low Sugar Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

    1. Citrus berry frozen yogurt Whip up a homemade batch of froyo by mixing fresh berries into fat-free, unsweetened Greek yogurt (or your favorite unsweetened nondairy yogurt). Leave the berries whole for bite-sized pops of flavor or blend them up and swirl into your yogurt for a smoother texture. Stir in a little zest from an orange, lemon or lime and place the mixture in the freezer until solid. 2. Spiced fruit crisp Warm and comforting, a delicious fruit crisp is the perfect low sugar dessert any time of the year. First, make your crunchy topping: Our Simply Inspired Homemade Granola comes together in just 20 minutes! Next, choose your favorite fruit (we love apples, berries and peaches). Peel and chop the fruit into small pieces and add to a pot with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Add a dash of spice — cinnamon, nutmeg, and even pumpkin spice are all great choices. Cook the fruit on low heat until it’s soft. Add the cooked fruit to a bowl and top with your homemade granola. Yum! 3. Healthy banana ice cream Our Simply Inspired Banana Ice Cream is a tasty dairy-free, low sugar treat on its own — but it’s even better served with a Jenny Craig dessert. Making this ice cream is really easy — the hardest part is waiting for it to freeze! For a twist on the classic flavor, add cocoa powder, strawberries or matcha to frozen, blended bananas to make three refreshing desserts. 4. Grilled fruit You only need a few minutes to turn regular fruit into a low sugar, sweet snack or sophisticated dessert. Grilling fruit brings out its natural sweetness without needing to add any sugar. Cut watermelon or pineapple into thick slices (thin pieces will break apart too easily). If you’re using stone fruits, like peaches or nectarines, slice the fruit in half and remove the pit before placing on the grill. Choose slightly under-ripe stone fruit that can stand up to the high heat of the grill. Heat your grill on medium high for 10 minutes, then scrape the grate down and lightly oil it before adding fruit to prevent sticking. Or, skip outdoor cooking and use a grill pan instead — just remember to spritz the pan with cooking spray before grilling. 5. Dark chocolate banana bites Instead of choosing a sugary candy bar, munch on these amazing low sugar snacks! Keep an eye on the sugar content in the chocolate by checking out the nutrition label. Darker, more bittersweet chocolate is the perfect pairing with this naturally sweet fruit. Melt two small squares of dark chocolate and cut a peeled banana into bite-sized pieces. Dip the banana into the chocolate and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. For a little crunch, sprinkle a couple crushed almonds or peanuts over the top. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens and enjoy! 6. Nutritious smoothie bowl Smoothies are a bright and refreshing way to quench your thirst while getting plenty of nutrients, but you can also turn them into a filling low sugar snack or breakfast by adding a few healthy toppings. If you’re working toward a weight loss goal, dial back the amount of fruit and add in some non-starchy vegetables instead! Spinach, kale, carrots, and even cauliflower are all yummy, healthy add-ins and taste great with fruit. Start by blending up this berry-licious Blueberry Cauliflower Smoothie, or this delicious Green Goddess Smoothie. Then, pour your smoothie into a bowl and sprinkle a ¼ cup of granola, a small amount of chopped nuts, or a small portion of fruit on top for extra flavor and texture. Cut back on added sugar with these low sugar desserts and snacks! Rather than reaching for sugar-sweetened snacks and desserts, opt for healthy options with natural sugars instead, like fresh or frozen fruit. Fruit is full of dietary fiber, which is great for digestion, can help control blood sugar levels, and may help you stay satisfied between meals. Looking for more ways to reduce your sugar intake? These 10 simple tips can help. Plus, get even more low sugar dessert ideas with these 10 sweet treat alternatives! If you’re looking for a low sugar weight loss plan, Jenny Craig has got one! Check out our variety of menu plans that include a low sugar option. Do you have a healthy go-to dessert? Comment below to share!

    Week one: Again

    I think you have fantastic "whys?" .Congrats for starting (Again). I would write down those reasons for being here - why you want to lose weight and keep them on an index card and set a reminder to read them 3 times a day. It soo helps. Pretty soon you will be in those cute little clothes. And way before that you will cross over to the 100s which felt to me like such a huge relief. You are on your way... Just keep swimmin' Sue
  11. Margaret and Steve W. joined Jenny Craig in their 40s to lose weight, but slowly regained the weight after raising three children and retiring from the Navy. Uncomfortable with the way they felt and unable to do all the activities they once enjoyed, Margaret and Steve rejoined Jenny Craig and lost almost 100 lbs.* together! Their incredible story was featured in Family Circle. Here’s how losing weight as a team made all the difference. Steve and I did not have weight problems until we reached our 40s. We were both high school and college athletes and stayed within Navy physical fitness standards. Our love of Jenny Craig started at age 40 when our weight crept up. We had just moved as a military couple from Adak, Alaska to our new duty stations in Hawaii. We felt uncomfortable and were very overweight. We joined Jenny Craig together and successfully lost our excess weight. We became more active and started running a race a month, from 5Ks to the Honolulu Marathon, in four years. Fast forward 25 years. We retired from the Navy, adopted and raised three children, and grew older and more sedentary. Over the years, we were constantly busy with lots of scouting adventures and other activities with our kids, leaving little time for ourselves. Our weight crept up on us again. With our children now in college or working, we looked in the mirror and saw a big Momma and Bubba. It was time for a change. I didn’t want to buy larger clothes and Steve had a medical situation that scared us both. Jenny Craig had helped us before, and we were confident it could help us again. Together, we started our new weight loss journey back to looking good and being healthy again. We set our weight loss goals for me to lose 25 lbs. and for Steve to lose 60. I jokingly said to our consultant Raysha, “Don’t expect me to wear a bikini if I lose all this weight!” We started Jenny Craig in the fall when the kids were away at college, when we could focus solely on our menu plans. We found we had more time together to do things we enjoyed because we didn’t have to make dinners, weigh food or figure out what size portion we could eat. The Jenny Craig meals were already nutritionally balanced and pre-portioned, so we just needed to add vegetables or a salad. While Steve had the greater weight loss at the start, I steadily lost all 25 lbs.,* hitting my first goal just after Christmas. I started walking with the ladies in the neighborhood five times a week. Steve had also lost 40 lbs. but still had 20 lbs. to go. I decided to support him by staying on the program and resetting my goal. With focus, determination and support from each other and our consultant, Steve successfully lost his remaining 20 lbs. and I ended up losing another 25 lbs. At our final goals, Steve and I were each within five pounds of what we weighed 32 years ago, when we got married! We are older than most couples that have kids our age, and we want to be in great shape for any future grandchildren. Losing weight changed our lives. It was an incredible journey and we are proud of our success! Losing weight together has improved our emotional, physical and mental relationship. I walk daily, lowered my blood pressure and reduced the medications I take. Steve sleeps better, is more alert at work and able to do more hiking and walking. He has also started a weight training program. We are loving life and all the compliments we receive. We recently went to a neighborhood party and received numerous compliments on our appearance. One neighbor didn’t even recognize Steve. As we were leaving the party, one of our neighbors shouted, “When are you going to publish your secret diet?” We both giggled and said, “It’s already available … Jenny Craig!” Our advice to other couples wanting to lose weight and look better is to do it together! The mutual support and effort you provide each other as a team can make the journey easier and increase your chances of success. And about that bikini … I wore it to the beach this summer! Interested in beginning your weight loss journey with a friend, loved one or family member? We’re here for you, every step of the way! Get started with Jenny Craig by booking your appointment today. *Weight lost on Classic Program. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Margaret and Steve received promotional consideration. Margaret's weight loss as of October 2019. Steve's weight loss as of June 2019.

    Week one: Again

    I have come back and forth to Jenny a few times over the years, and now I'm back again. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who thought that I would NEVER be at the weight I am. I lost weight after having both of my kids, but after some hard knocks by life, lots of emotional eating, a metabolism that I'm sure is slowing down, I'm around 80 pounds above my ideal weight. Even writing those words is just crazy to me! In my mind I still think, "It's not that bad." And thats why I most likely keep going out and overeating. I always LOVE to read peoples stats, journeys, and success stories, so I'm going to give you mine. I'm 36, two kids (9 and 6, so the baby weight excuse isn't holding up in the same way anymore), I am 5'1, and I currently weight 217. DEAR GOD. My goal weight is 130. My first goal weight is 160. My first first goal weight is 195. I just want to get out of the 200's. I've tried all the diets out there, but the fact is that I just can't come to grips about doing a ketosis plan again, or some plan where 'calories don't matter' as long as I'm eating certain things, or even a plan where I have to cook and meal plan right now. I've got so much going on in my life that the idea of grabbing something out of the freezer and knowing that if I eat it (and not anything else) I WILL lose. Its about patience for me, and getting comfortable that it won't happen overnight. Its about getting comfortable with not eating as much as I want, and about just not stopping. I started Jenny again last week, but I honestly wasn't prepared for how hungry I was going to be. It shocked me. I was stressed several times and I thought, its not really going to matter if I eat more, or eat off plan, and just fell right into my excuses again. And guess what, I gained two pounds. Talk about going in for your week 1 weigh in and gaining weight. Hard to justify that one in your head. The bottom line is that the only person I'm letting down is myself. I can use this time or I can waste this time. Chose to use it, start again, and give myself some tough love. I want to be able to run with my kids, wear the millions of clothes in my closet that are so flipping cute but don't fit. I want to do the things I want to do in life, hike, swim, dress up, feel pretty and confident, without my weight being an ever present issue. I also want to LIVE for a long time, and experience actual health.

    6 Tips to Maintain Your Weight that No One's Ever Told You

    1. Enjoy a healthy, balanced diet. Photo by Rawpixel on Pexels “If you lost weight by eating healthy foods and incorporating physical activity into your routine, you’ve likely learned some excellent habits, like what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat — but being consistent with these new skills is the key to maintaining your weight,” says Rodriquez. “Making sure you continue to eat balanced meals is so important, not only for weight maintenance but also for your overall health.” The most balanced meals have a mix of all three macronutrients: carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Healthy sources of all three of these macronutrients will give you the energy you need, whether you’re maintaining weight or losing weight. The good news is, you don’t need to cut out any of these food groups to lose or maintain a healthy weight. For example, some trendy diets tout extreme weight loss results by drastically reducing or eliminating carbs from your diet. But here’s the thing: Vegetables and fruit are fiber-rich sources of carbohydrates that are satisfying and good for you, plus, they’re more nutritious than your average white bread or pasta. By eating healthy, balanced meals, rather than depriving yourself of certain foods, you’ll be more equipped to maintain your habits long-term. How do you build a balanced meal? Rodriquez suggests filling your plate with lots of your favorite vegetables (the more non-starchy greens, the better!), then adding a smaller portion of lean protein (like chicken, fish or tofu), a healthy fat (like avocado, nuts or seeds) for added nutrients and flavor, and a small side of fruit for dessert. For a refresher on how to create a delicious, portion-conscious plate, try these easy serving size suggestions. 2. Weigh yourself frequently. Maintaining your goal weight while trying to keep up with a healthy lifestyle may seem difficult, but this surprising strategy could help. Weighing yourself daily isn’t just beneficial for weight loss: Research has found that it may be helpful for maintenance, too. One study suggests weighing yourself daily and seeing your results could encourage you to be more accountable, which may promote weight maintenance. A group of 111 adults was asked to maintain their weight during one of the most challenging times of the year — the holiday season. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, their daily weigh-ins were placed on a graph, which allowed participants to see a visual of their progress. By the end of the study, participants had successfully prevented weight gain. Researchers think the combination of daily weigh-ins and the visual element of a graph helped participants make small changes to stay on track.2 Want to try this out for yourself? Track your progress using Jenny Craig’s mobile app. 3. Take part in regular exercise. Photo by PredragImages on iStock Exercise isn’t just helpful for encouraging weight loss — research shows it may also be important for weight maintenance. A review of several studies found that participating in more physical activity may help people to maintain their weight.3 And while exercise duration and intensity varied across the studies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest gradually increasing your activity levels to 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise, or a mix of the two every week.4 Check out this Beginner’s Guide to Exercise, grab a friend and get started! If you’re just starting to add exercise to your routine, start with an easier activity, like walking, says Rodriquez. By not doing too much too soon, you’ll likely avoid injury, and it may be easier to keep up your new fitness routine. Walking, for example, may provide a variety of health benefits and doesn’t require any special equipment or experience, making it an ideal activity to support your weight maintenance. 4. Get plenty of restful sleep. It’s a common scenario: After a sleepless night, you feel groggy and find yourself grabbing a doughnut for a quick pick-me-up — followed by a snack from the vending machine to get through the afternoon. Why are you craving high-fat and sugary treats? Sleep can impact your hunger hormones, causing you to reach for unhealthy foods.5 Getting a good night’s rest may help regulate hunger hormones such as ghrelin (the hormone that promotes hunger) and leptin (the hormone that signals fullness). Skimping on sleep can throw off your best weight maintenance intentions and may increase your likelihood of regaining weight. A 16-year study of 68,000 middle-aged women found that those who slept five hours or less gained weight and were 15% more likely to be at risk of developing obesity, compared to those who slept seven hours each night.6 So rest up! Beyond weight maintenance — getting quality rest may provide a host of other health benefits — including the potential to boost your immune system and mood, and even the potential to improve your cardiovascular health.7 Try these simple, effective tips to get a great night's sleep! 5. Find a great support system. It’s just as important to have the support you need during weight loss as it is during maintenance! We get it: There may be days when maintaining your weight feels challenging. Rather than struggling to find your motivation alone, fall back on a strong support system, which may include a structured weight maintenance program, a weight loss consultant, your friends and family, or your doctor. A recent review suggests that continued interactions with a healthcare provider or within a group can significantly improve weight maintenance over time.8 Your support system will remind you of your victories — both on the scale and off — to help you keep up with your healthy lifestyle. 6. Stick to the plan (even on the weekends!). Photo by Milkos on iStock With weight maintenance, consistency is key. Although it might be tempting to stray from your healthy habits during the holidays or over the weekends, making mindful choices every day will help you to maintain your weight over time. No matter the occasion, look for healthier food choices to support your goals, like these: Love sweet treats? Try these 10 delicious snacks and desserts any time of the year. Avoid sugar-sweetened beverages and opt for refreshing sparkling and fruit-infused waters. Need a little inspiration in the kitchen? These easy-to-make recipes will show you how to make a variety of meals, snacks, desserts and drinks and feature fresh, nutritious ingredients. Skip the fast-food line by trying out these 13 meal prep tips to have breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks ready right when you want them. Learning how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight doesn’t have to be difficult — sometimes all you need is a good recipe and a few meal hacks! “Maintaining your weight can be challenging, but having the right meal plan, a strong support system and easy-to-follow strategies can make all the difference,” says Rodriquez. “You don’t have to do it alone! A weight maintenance plan can provide these resources to help you stay on track.” If you notice you’re still gaining weight despite your best efforts to maintain your goal (it happens!), there might be something else to consider — your DNA. Find out if you’re genetically predisposed to regaining weight and get the answers you need with Jenny Craig’s DNA Decoder Plan.

Hi, I’m Heather Lake, a health and lifestyle contributor for Jenny Craig. Here’s your healthy tip for the week: Ditch dining out! Forgot to pack your lunch again? Too tired to make dinner when you get home? Resist the urge to stop at your local fast food joint and whip up something simple like a basic salad with lean protein like grilled chicken or 1-2 hard-boiled eggs. Or, try a healthy, prepackaged meal. Jenny Craig offers around 100 freshly prepared, simply frozen options for you to choose from to help keep you on track with your healthy habits and work toward your weight loss goals! Fast facts on fast food It can be very calorie-dense. Depending on what you order, a fast food meal could contain over 2,000 calories — which is the daily amount the Food and Drug Administration recommends for most people.1 (But if you’re trying to lose weight, the number of calories you need may vary!) It could contribute to weight gain and insulin resistance. One study found that people who ate fast food more than two times per week gained almost 10 pounds over a 15-year period.2 What’s more, the research showed that frequent fast food eaters experienced a two-fold increase in insulin resistance compared to those who ate fast food less than once a week.2 It’s not as inexpensive as you might think. Fast food prices are quickly climbing, making them cost almost as much as similar items at fast casual restaurants. Fast casual prices used to be 30% more expensive than fast food, but now, the cost difference between getting a hamburger at a fast casual or fast food restaurant is only 8%.3 Here’s how eating healthy meals at home could actually save you money. How to stop eating fast food When your schedule is jam-packed with activities and events, finding the time to prepare and eat a healthy meal can seem challenging. And while it might be tempting to stop by a fast food restaurant for a quick meal, these options may not be very good for you (or your weight loss!).

    #TransformationTuesday: My Latest Progress Picture

    You look great...how is it going?
  20. Photo by Drazen Zigic on iStock 1. Jump rope To begin your workout, you’ll want to warm up — and a great way to do so is by jumping rope. Think back to when you were a kid: Jumping rope was a quick way to get your heart rate up (and break a sweat). Not only is jumping rope fantastic cardio, but according to the American Council on Exercise (ACE), it may also help to work your brain, too (by forcing you to focus on the hops ahead).4 Try jumping for 2-3 minutes as part of your workout, for a super-effective way to burn calories — and have fun! Photo by twinsterphoto on iStock 2. Squats This classic leg move not only strengthens your quadriceps (the large muscles on the front of your legs at the top) and hamstring muscles (the large muscles on the backside of your legs at the top), but it also may help protect your knees from injury so you can keep on exercising!5 The key is to do them correctly, so you don’t end up injuring your back, legs or knees. According to the Mayo Clinic, you should start by placing your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Next, bend down with your hips (avoid curving your back), stop when your knees are at a 90-degree angle, then push back up.5 If you’re at a more intermediate or advanced level, consider adding jumps — after descending, take only a brief pause, then jump quickly upward (this is called a jump squat). The secret: Make sure you land softly, and push your hips backwards in the direction of your heels. Photo by AzmanJaka on iStock 3. Tricep dip To work your triceps, you don’t need dumbbells or fancy gym equipment — a chair or firm sofa will do the trick! Not only does this exercise target the back of your arms (the tricep muscle), but it also hones in on others, including the pectoralis major (top of your chest), trapezius (your upper back) and serratus anterior (a muscle that’s connected to your ribs and wraps around to the side of your shoulder blade, helping to move the entire arm).6 Here’s how ACE recommends doing a proper tricep dip: Get started by placing your hands on the seat of your chair and moving your rear off the seat, so that you are holding your body up with your arms. Slowly lower your hips and bend your arms, so that your upper arms are parallel with the floor. Then, push back up to start. Feel like you need a little pick-me-up at work? You can even do this one using your office chair! Pro tip: When selecting a chair to practice your tricep dips, make sure it’s stable and heavy enough so it won’t slide out from underneath you. Chairs with wheels should be avoided. Photo by iprogressman on iStock 4. Lunges Like squats, lunges also target your leg muscles by working your quads and hamstrings, the gluteal muscles in your rear, and your lower leg muscles, too.7 To do this move, step forward with one foot, to the point where your front knee is at a 90-degree angle, and your back leg is parallel to the ground. Then, step your leg back, return to standing, and repeat on the opposite leg.7 Photo by OkinawaPottery on iStock 5. Push-ups Even though push-ups may seem daunting, they’re definitely worth doing — they work numerous muscles, like your core, pectoral muscles and triceps, according to the Mayo Clinic.8 Because this traditional exercise relies solely on body weight — like the other moves, it’s another great exercise without gym equipment. If the classic version seems too difficult (and don’t worry if it does!), you can try a modified version. Here’s how to do it: Get on all fours, and keeping your core tight, bend your elbows and lower your chest toward the ground. Then, push up, making sure to keep your back straight. For more of a challenge, raise your knees to do the push-ups (just use proper form, making sure your hips stay lifted and back stays straight to avoid injury). Photo by AzmanJaka on iStock 6. Jumping jacks Though they may seem like an activity you used to do in P.E. class, they’re still an effective exercise. So much so, that ACE reports they can activate every muscle in your body, and get your cardiovascular system pumping.9 If it’s been a while since you’ve done a jumping jack, here’s a refresher: Stand with your arms by your sides. Next, jump your legs out, shoulder-width apart, while bringing your arms up over head. Then, jump and bring your legs back to your starting position, while you simultaneously bring your arms down by your side and repeat. Photo by Aleksandr Kondratov on iStock 7. Bridge This move is a three-in-one — it works your core, glutes and hips. Plus, it’s a great move for beginners, or people who are just getting back into exercise. To do this move, lie on your back and bend your knees, placing your feet flat on the ground.10 Next, contract your abdominal muscles and lift your hips and rear off the floor, then slowly bring your hips and rear back down. For more of a challenge, lift one leg up for half the reps, then lift your other leg for the rest. As a reminder: Be sure to avoid arching your back (which can happen if you try and push your hips up as high as possible). Enjoy doing these moves at home — you can go through them all at once, or squeeze a few in throughout the day. Here’s to exercising even when life gets crazy-busy, and to working out without a gym!

Patricia, is my rock, and she keeps me focused week after week. Her encouragement and the accountability that she provides plays a major role in my continued success. The food is great, and tastes like restaurant quality to me! Jenny Craig has mastered a menu plan which provides a great variety of meals and snacks that satisfy my sweet, savory, Italian and comfort food cravings. They are also a model of portion control. When I prepare a meal on my own or dine at a restaurant, I visualize my Jenny Craig portion to know the correct amount of food to eat. I also make sure to eat regularly to keep my hunger at bay, and to fill up on extra vegetables to round out my meals and snacks. My favorite food, hands down, is the Chicken Fettuccine. I add sautéed spinach, and it tastes so wonderful that I could eat it every day! I also love the BBQ Crisps and the Chocolate Dream Shake, and I consider the best dessert in the world to be the Chocolate Lava Cake. Even if I wasn't on the Jenny Craig program, I would still want this dessert. I lost 15 lbs.*on Jenny Craig! I can wear my clothes with confidence, and I have more energy to give to my husband, my children and to my work. When I started this weight loss journey, I had a new goal in mind. That goal was to take advantage of the Maintenance Program to help me manage my weight and to continue the healthy eating habits I practiced while I was losing weight. I meet with my consultant at least once a month for guidance that helps me stay within range of my goal weight. It's a part of my routine now, along with enjoying more physical activity. I exercise 3-4 times a week with weights, and I go to spin class for cardio! Managing my weight loss is a priority because I love looking great and feeling happy and confident in my professional and personal life! Feeling inspired by Tanya’s story? Start eating delicious food while working toward your weight loss goals with Jenny Craig! *Weight lost on Classic Program. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Received promotional consideration.
  23. 5:00 a.m. Good morning! My fitness tracker and phone alarm start going off — it’s time to get up for the work day. I have a long 40-mile commute to work, so I have to get up early to bypass traffic for at least one part of the day. Once I’m up, I shower and get dressed for work. I head down to the kitchen with my massive backpack full of workout clothes and my laptop. I get tons of comments at work that my backpack is as big as me! One of my favorite things about Jenny Craig is that I didn’t have to plan anything — all my meals were there waiting for me! All I had to do was add a salad and vegetables, which was so easy. By following the program, I realized that my portion sizes were way too big when I was overweight. I’ve always watched what I ate and I’ve always been an avid exerciser! I kept blaming my excessive weight on other things — post-baby weight; that my body was “too old” to lose weight; the stress of moving to a different state — I had so many reasons and excuses. I started Jenny Craig and the weight started coming off with hardly any effort. Jenny Craig helped save my body by getting it back in shape, which gave me a lot more energy, and gave me confidence I thought I never had. Once I’m down in the kitchen, I pack up my meals and snacks. Since reaching my weight loss goal, I’ve been following the Jenny Craig Maintenance Program, so I eat a mix of my own foods and a few of my Jenny Craig favorites to help keep me on track. My breakfast typically includes a glass of milk (I love milk!), a simple cup of plain oatmeal and blueberries, and my must-have: a large mug of coffee that I brew before I leave. I add a tiny bit of coffee creamer and calorie-free natural sweetener to my coffee so it tastes like a sweet treat! The rest of the day’s food includes my delicious Jenny Craig Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Essential Nutrition Bar, a garden salad with an orange miso dressing, a Jenny Craig lunch (I love the Romano Pasta with Chicken!), a cup of strawberries, and a dinner that includes a protein, lots of vegetables (broccoli is my favorite), and a small amount of starch. 6:00 - 7:00 a.m. Morning commute = breakfast and a podcast. I make the most of my drive by drinking my cup of milk and having some coffee while listening to a podcast or music. It’s my alone time in the morning and the drive helps me feel fully awake by the time I get to work. 7:00 - 11:00 a.m. Work begins. I work a typical 8-hour day, and occasionally I get to be around my favorite things — airplanes! I work for an airline in the Technical Operations area. I’ll dive into the rest of my breakfast by about 8:30 — my oatmeal with blueberries — and continue finishing off my coffee. 11:00 a.m. Time for a snack — and a great workout. By this time of day, I am ready to have my Jenny Craig Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Bar (yummo!) as a snack before my workout! I eat the bar, drink at least another eight ounces of water, and then head to the gym at work to do my workout. My workouts include a range of cardio and strength training exercises: High intensity interval training, 3 to 5-mile runs, heavy weight lifting, and full body workouts with weights. I always finish my workouts with an ab routine to try to enhance my core strength! Once I’m done with my workout, I shower and get back to my day. While at work, I enjoy my lunch. After a delicious meal, I feel refreshed, energized and ready to work again! Throughout the day, I drink an herbal caffeine-free tea to help me feel satisfied. 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Let the commute begin! Time to pack up from work and take my commute back home in wonderful metro Atlanta traffic! On the ride home, I’ll eat my strawberries, drink water, and chat with someone on the drive home, typically my hubby, my mom or a close friend. 5:30 p.m. Healthy portions and healthy choices at dinnertime. Once I pick my son up from school, I cook dinner for my family. I prefer making meals for my family that I can enjoy, too. I’ll usually make a lean protein (like grilled chicken or beef), a smaller amount of starch (like bread, rice, potatoes or sweet potato tots), and lots of vegetables (my family loves broccoli, too!). 7:00 p.m. My last snack of the day — something sweet! This is the time that I feel like I’m indulging because I get to enjoy one last snack (which is usually something sweet!). My favorites are the S’mores Bar, Lemon Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, and my absolute favorite is the Vanilla Buttercream Cupcake. My son usually wants a bite, but it’s so hard to share! 9:00 p.m. Time for bed. For me, a good night’s rest is a full eight hours of sleep. Right before it’s time to tuck in, I read to my son and then I’ll do some reading of my own, usually something that gets my mind mentally prepared for rest and calm. That’s it! Rinse and repeat for the next day! Jennie’s story is a great reminder that the foods you eat and the portions you enjoy are so important to your weight loss goals! Having trouble deciding what to eat and keeping your portion sizes in check? We’re here to help! With Jenny Craig, you’ll get all the tools you need for weight loss: healthy, portioned meals and snacks, one-on-one support and dietitian-designed meal plans. Get started with Jenny Craig today!

    10 Foods That May Help Prevent Breast Cancer

    Why a healthy diet is important Eating a healthy diet is important for so many reasons, from potentially reducing your risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis, to possibly improving your overall health.8 Research is increasingly showing that adopting a healthy diet, especially one that is rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, helps to maintain a healthy weight and therefore may help to prevent various types of cancer, including breast cancer, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) reports.9,2 According to the AICR,10 plant-based foods are rich in antioxidants, which may prevent damage to cells that may ultimately trigger cancer. They also are brimming with phytochemicals, or plant-based chemicals, that may help prevent and fight cancer with their potential to boost the immune system, block substances we’re exposed to from becoming carcinogenic, reduce inflammation in our bodies and other actions.11 To reduce your risk of breast cancer, the experts at breastcancer.org recommend that you:12 Eat at least five cups of vegetables and fruit a day. (If your goals include weight loss, just keep an eye on how much fruit you’re eating — eat as many non-starchy vegetables as you’d like!) Avoid trans fats, processed meats, and charred or smoked foods. Eat foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as seafood, nuts and seeds, and some plant oils. Foods that may help prevent breast cancer Since no single food can prevent cancer, it’s best to focus on eating a well-rounded diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.13 Combined with maintaining a healthy weight and regular exercise, research has shown that certain foods with plenty of these nutrients may help reduce your chances of developing breast cancer. Here’s a look at 10. 1. Berries Photo by Joanna Kosinska on Unsplash Loaded with vitamin C, fiber and phytochemicals, blueberries and black raspberries have been shown in animal studies to have significant positive effects on certain breast tumors, the AICR14 reports. Experts at the AICR suggest eating 4-5 servings of berries per week; fresh, unsweetened frozen or canned berries are all good choices, they say. Experts13 believe that berries are a good choice because they contain a wealth of antioxidants which have been shown to help protect the body from the type of cell damage that could cause breast and other cancers to develop. How to eat it: Top your next cup of nonfat plain yogurt with berries for a delicious breakfast! 2. Grapes Photo by Amos Bar-Zeev on Unsplash Boasting the antioxidant resveratrol, grapes have demonstrated potential anti-cancer effects, studies show.15 According to experts at MD Anderson,13 resveratrol has “the potential to possibly stop” cancer from developing in the breast, as well as in the liver, stomach and lymphatic system. They note that grape skin contains the most resveratrol and that red and purple grapes have more than green grapes. How to eat it: Grapes make the perfect in-between-meal snack. Eat them fresh or freeze them for an after-dinner treat! 3. Broccoli Photo by Reinaldo Kevin on Unsplash The Breast Center at Johns Hopkins Medicine16 reports that compounds in broccoli produce a substance that may prevent cancer cells from dividing and multiplying, thus inhibiting breast cancer growth. Broccoli is part of the cruciferous vegetable family — along with Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and arugula — which tend to be filled with nutrients that can help reduce inflammation.17 How to eat it: Use these 4 healthy tips to make broccoli taste amazing. Mix broccoli into your next salad or steam it and pair it with your next entrée. Fresh or frozen broccoli are both great choices! 4. Raw carrots Photo by Gabriel Gurrola on Unsplash While consuming large amounts of raw vegetables of all types has been shown to reduce the risk of several types of cancer, including breast cancer, raw carrots seem to confer the most protection, researchers have found.17 One study17,18 found that people who ate about 12 servings of raw vegetables per week had a 15% reduced risk of breast cancer, compared with people who ate four servings per week. But raw carrots may be even more powerful. The same study,17 found that people who ate four servings of raw carrots per week were approximately 20% less likely to develop breast cancer, compared with those who ate half a serving per week. The researchers say that carrots are rich in carotenoids and add that eating a diet high in carotenoids may be associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. It’s thought that carotenoids can act as antioxidants and may help reduce the risk of breast cancer by neutralizing free radicals, inhibiting cancer cell growth and other actions.19 How to eat it: Snack on raw carrots with your lunch, or for a healthy snack, pair raw carrots with a tablespoon of hummus. 5. Pomegranate Photo by NordWood Themes on Unsplash Numerous studies20 have suggested that pomegranate products, including the whole fruit, juice and oil, might have significant positive effects on several types of cancer, including of the breast, lung and skin. While researchers say more research is needed to validate the usefulness of pomegranate in the prevention and treatment of cancer, the City of Hope21 reports that researchers there have identified six chemicals in the fruit that suppress aromatase, a substance involved in the production of estrogen. Citing that approximately 70% of breast cancers require estrogen to grow, they say that pomegranate could prove to be a “breast-cancer-blocking super food.” How to eat it: Sprinkle pomegranate seeds on your next salad for a fruity and flavorful addition! 6. Green tea While green tea has long been hailed for its role in cancer prevention, the National Cancer Institute (NCI)22 reports that only some research has linked green tea to a reduced risk of breast and other cancers. Among the more than 50 studies that have looked at the association between green tea consumption and cancer risk since 2006, the results have been inconsistent, the NCI reports. Although it says the specific mechanism by which green tea might help prevent cancer has not been established, the NCI adds that polyphenols in green tea do have antioxidant activity and may help protect cells from DNA damage. How to drink it: Steep green tea and drink it alongside your morning breakfast or with a snack in the afternoon for a midday pick-me-up. 7. Tomatoes Bursting with lycopene (a naturally occurring chemical that helps to give fruits and vegetables their red color), tomatoes may be helpful in preventing breast cancer because of their antioxidant properties.23 And a 2018 review24 cites tomatoes as being a rich source of resveratrol. The researchers note that resveratrol is “the most promising candidate” for preventing breast and other cancers. How to eat it: Slice a tomato up and put some on your next sandwich or dice one up and mix it into a pasta dish. 8. Nuts Photo by Remi Yuan on Unsplash The Moffitt Cancer Center25 reports that a 2019 study26 found that breast cancer patients who ate 2 ounces of walnuts per day for two weeks slowed the growth of breast cancer or reduced the risk of developing it. Experts at Moffitt say that nuts can help reduce inflammation in the body, particularly if eaten instead of less healthy foods. High amounts of inflammation have been associated with breast and other cancers, they add. Another small study also found that almonds, walnuts and peanuts may help to reduce the risk of breast cancer.27 (Since nuts are typically high in calories, make sure to watch your portion sizes if you’re trying to lose weight.) How to eat it: Sliced almonds make the perfect salad topping! Sprinkle one tablespoon on your next bowl for an added crunch. 9. Whole grains Photo by Miguel Maldonado on Unsplash Several studies have concluded that whole grains may help protect against breast cancer. For instance, a 2016 study published in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment28 found that high intakes of whole-grain foods may be associated with a lower risk of premenopausal breast cancer. The researchers suggest that the fiber in whole grains may help explain the association. Meantime, a 2018 analysis published in BMC Nutrition Journal29 found that the consumption of whole grains could be inversely associated with the risk of breast cancer, although they note more research is needed to confirm the link. The researchers speculate that there are several mechanisms that might help explain the protective effects of whole grains: They may help mediate insulin responses and ensure better glycemic control (and higher insulin levels have been shown to be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer); whole grains may help reduce inflammatory markers; and they are rich in dietary fiber, which research has shown to be inversely associated with the risk of breast cancer.29 How to eat it: Swap refined grains (think: white bread, pasta, white rice), for whole-grain alternatives instead. 10. Dairy products According to the National Cancer Institute,30 research has shown that a higher intake of calcium-rich dairy products is associated with a reduced risk of premenopausal breast cancer. In an analysis of more than 3,000 women enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study, for instance, researchers found that those who got more than 800 milligrams of calcium per day from dairy products, especially low- or nonfat milk, cheese and yogurt, were at reduced risk, compared with women who got 200 milligrams or less. How to eat it: Splash nonfat milk in your morning cup of coffee or enjoy a cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt for a mid-morning snack. As we celebrate Breast Cancer Prevention Month, we hope you’ll consider adding these delicious, healthy foods for breast health to your breast cancer prevention plan. As for me?

    Healthy Tip of the Week: Eat More Veggies

    Video Transcript Hi, I’m Heather Lake, a health and lifestyle contributor for Jenny Craig. Here’s your healthy tip for the week: Eat your veggies! Veggies pack a nutritional, low-calorie punch that can help you feel full, longer. Plus, they’re loaded with nutrients to help you get the vitamins and minerals you need while supporting your weight loss efforts. The best way to incorporate more veggies into your routine is to start with the ones that you like — and experiment by adding new varieties to your meals. Different cooking methods can also bring out the flavor of certain vegetables. Try sautéing, roasting, grilling or just snacking on them raw! Easy ways to eat more vegetables If you’re not sure how to eat more vegetables, don’t worry — we’re here to help! Sometimes all you need is a new recipe, and we’ve got a few we know you’ll love. The best part? If you’re following the Jenny Craig program, these recipes are the perfect way to eat more veggies while sticking to your meal plan and staying on track with your weight loss goals. 5 ways to eat more vegetables 1. Try different textures and flavors. Whether you like your broccoli roasted, sautéed, in a stir-fry or blended into a soup, you’ll want to add these four easy and delicious broccoli recipes to your weekly meal rotation. By experimenting with different ways to cook your vegetables, you may discover new methods that you prefer. Vegetables are good sources of insoluble fiber. And because insoluble fiber is digested slowly, it can help you to feel full and satisfied after eating, which is great news for weight loss!1 A cup of cooked broccoli has five grams of fiber and only 55 calories, making it a tasty, low-calorie choice at mealtimes.2 2. Drink up! You don’t need to try a crazy juice fad to get more greens! Rather than buying pricey juices at the store (that are often chock-full of sugar), make your own at home. For the most fiber-filled impact, don’t strain your juice after you blend your veggies. This Green Goodness Smoothie has a little zing from fresh lemon and ginger, juicy tartness from green apples and plenty of greens. Want something a little more decadent? You’ll love how refreshing (and veggie-filled!) this Green Goddess Shake is. 3. Switch up your salad. You won’t be able to leaf these tasty salads alone! Salads are one of the easiest ways to eat more vegetables, and you can mix and match colors, flavors and textures to find your new favorite. Round out a meal with the perfect side salad. Check out these recipes for a healthy twist on a Cobb Salad, a nutty Carrot Salad with Coriander and a classic Radicchio and Greens Salad. If you’re tired of the same old lettuce, these three creative, lettuce-free salads are just what you’re looking for. Feel a little fancy with a Blanched Asparagus and Mushroom Dijon Salad, put a splash of color on your plate with a Red, White and Orange Watercress Salad, or try something with a little heat: Green Beans and Bell Peppers with Hot Sauce Vinaigrette. 4. Try a twist on an old favorite. Transform a head of cauliflower into a rich and savory side dish: mashed cauliflower. You read that right — with just a handful of ingredients, you can turn this humble vegetable into a serious comfort food, no gravy necessary. 5. Make mealtimes a family activity. Foster healthy eating habits — including lots of yummy vegetables — by including your loved ones in planning, prepping and cooking meals. If weight loss is on your mind, getting your family in on the fun could help you stick to your goals. Gather round: These 5-minute recipes are filled to the brim with vegetables, and make fast, filling meals or side dishes. Choose from a Colorful Broccoli Slaw, a fresh Super ’Shroom Sauté, snackable Gingery Cucumber Slices, or a Green Savory Stir-Fry. If you’re looking for quick and easy ways to eat more vegetables, there are so many options! Vegetables are full of nutrients, making them ideal additions to any meal. And making them doesn’t need to be difficult: Many vegetables can be enjoyed raw, or with minimal cooking and preparation. The hardest part? Choosing which recipe to make first!

Enjoy your veggies!
