Jenny Craig Online: At Home & On Your ScheduleBy Sarah S – Jenny Craig
It’s no secret that Jenny Craig food is pretty amazing — with a wide variety of delicious meals, snacks and shakes to keep members satisfied, it’s one of the main reasons we get so many word-of-mouth referrals. But if you’ve ever tried to lose weight on your own (and most of us have), you know that sometimes the food alone just isn’t enough. That’s why Jenny Craig combines great food with the compassionate support of a personal consultant … and why our members lose 3 times more weight than people dieting on their own.*
And did you know: You don’t even have to come into a center to reap the rewards of the member-consultant relationship? Thanks to Jenny Craig's online program and meal delivery service, you can take your consultant’s helpful advice, cooking tips, weight loss expertise and coping strategies anywhere you can take your phone. Here’s a quick overview of the program and all it offers.
As with a regular in-center program, you’ll be connected with a Jenny Craig consultant — a single point of contact who will be your personal guide throughout your weight loss journey. Many of our consultants are former Jenny Craig members who were so inspired by their own success with the program, they came to work with us! Whether you prefer a simple phone call or a video chat, you’ll connect virtually every week with somebody who really understands what you’re going through… and who is carefully trained to aid and inspire you every step of the way.
Flex your way to fabulous
Once you’ve gotten acquainted with your consultant, you’ll agree upon a time for your weekly consultation. With extended hours seven days a week, it’s easy to find a time that works. During your first conversation, you’ll talk a little bit about your goals: what inspired your weight loss journey, and how much weight you’d like to lose. On average, Jenny Craig members lose 1–2 lbs. per week, so you’ll be able to get a rough idea of how long it might take you to reach your goal — and start setting some expectations around that.
A lifestyle you’ll love
Jenny Craig isn’t just a diet — it’s a lifestyle! So, in addition to helping you plan your menus for the following week, your Jenny Craig online consultant will help you develop healthier behaviors around eating and exercise. You’ll learn to eat more frequently throughout the day (up to six times per day), master the basics of portion control, develop strategies for dining out, and how to maximize your meals and snacks with what we call “free foods.”
Your menus, your way
Jenny Craig personalized menus are designed to be ultra-flexible — enabling you to lose weight gradually, and still enjoy the foods you love! Some members love the convenience of our pre-planned menus, while others want the freedom to hand-select certain meals. All Jenny Craig meals are nutritionally balanced; your consultant can help you make sure you stay within your daily calorie limit. And with Jenny Craig online, you can pick up your food at a center near you, or have it delivered right to your doorstep!
* The program is backed by hard science as demonstrated by a 2010 independent two-year clinical trial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showing that participants on the Jenny Craig program lost three times more weight than dieting on their own.
