6 Benefits of Personal Weight Loss CoachingBy Elisa - Jenny Craig
For nearly 35 years, Jenny Craig has helped people lose weight, gain confidence and reclaim the healthy, active lifestyles they want to live. Our personal consultants play a huge part in our members' journeys – their compassion, expertise and support are key factors in Jenny Craig's unique approach to weight loss success. With a dedicated and knowledgeable in-person or online weight loss coach by your side, someone will always be there for you on the good days to celebrate your successes and on the hard days to support and motivate you to stay on track.
While Jenny Craig has over 400 local centers nationwide, sometimes it’s not always feasible to meet with a consultant in person. That’s where Jenny Craig’s online program and meal delivery service comes in. Not only will your online weight loss coach help you with your food and physical activity planning during weight loss, but they can also help with your weight maintenance goals after you've lost the weight through our maintenance program.
Here are a few ways your personal weight loss consultant can make a difference on your weight loss journey:
#1. Always there for you
Whether you’re meeting with your online weight loss coach from the comfort of your home, while on the road, or in-person, your Jenny Craig consultant is always there for you.
Did you have a stressful week at work and find it hard to stay committed to your nutrition plan? Your consultant will be there to talk through your challenges, so you can recognize and avoid pitfalls to your success on your weight loss journey.
Want to celebrate an amazing week of healthy eating and weight loss? Your coach will be right by your side, cheering you on. Did you reach your weight loss goal and start wondering about next steps? They'll help guide your daily plans with healthy strategies, so you're ready for your next chapter. Our ultimate goal is to give you the tools to help you lose weight and learn how to keep it off.
#2. Your personal expert
Weight loss is personal. Losing weight is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Your consultant will tailor the program to fit your needs and lifestyle.
An online weight loss coach is so much more than a great cheerleader. They take the time to get to know you – your food preferences, your physical activity needs, your lifestyle, and your personality. When you find yourself up against a weight loss challenge, whether you've hit a plateau or want to mix up your regimen, your consultant can be an amazing resource and weight loss coach. They can help you explore new foods, identify ways to fit exercise into your lifestyle and make sure you're feeling satisfied so you can stay on track with your weight loss goals. Having an educated weight loss coach as a resource who considers your personal needs, can set the foundation for success.
#3. Better together - it’s science
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association1 showed that people are much more successful when they work one-on-one with a personal consultant as part of a structured weight loss program. It's part of the "secret ingredient" that has made Jenny Craig a top weight loss program over the years – including being ranked a best diet for easy-to-follow and fast weight loss for 9 years by U.S. News & World Report.
Once you establish that one-of-a-kind relationship with your weight loss coach, your weekly meetings can become a place where you're excited to share your milestones and challenges, and where you can find solutions to help you reach your goals.
Weight loss coaching programs go beyond body weight, diet, and physical activity. Having a consultant is almost like a personal life and wellness coach. You gain an accountability partner, someone who is there to celebrate the smallest victories and help you stick to your diet plan when life gets a little hectic and avoid weight gain. If you’re feeling stuck, you can always lean on your consultant to add in new Fresh & Free Additions, healthy recipes and other ideas to ensure you accomplish your goals in a way that works best for you. Furthermore, your weight loss coach will help you track your progress and teach you the skills you need to reach your goals and help maintain them in the future.
#5. Experience & knowledge
Many of our consultants are former Jenny Craig members, so they've likely shared similar experiences throughout their weight loss journeys – and all of them have gone through training to provide the best service.
We want you to be knowledgeable as you embark on your weight loss journey. We know the process can be exciting, but may also seem intimidating and challenging. Whether you're looking for help on how to get started or what to do next, your weight loss coach can supply the information you need. Anytime you have a question, your consultant will be there to provide you with answers.
#6. More than a weight loss program – it’s a lifestyle change
We all know yo-yo dieting and fad diets are not long-term solutions; it's about making a lifestyle change. Your consultant will focus on your health and well-being to help you create new habits that you can follow to help maintain your results. During your one-on-one coaching sessions, our consultants walk you through every process, so you understand why and how it's important to lose body fat, change your eating habits, and create a healthier lifestyle. Members find this support extremely beneficial during their weight loss journeys. As studies have shown, having a dedicated personal consultant and a support system can make the difference in long-term weight loss success.
With Jenny Craig, you never have to be alone. Not only do we give members the skills necessary to reach their goals, but our coaches are also there every step of the way; the first step is up to you.
