What is intermittent fasting?

Rapid Results Max leverages a form of intermittent fasting referred to as time-restricted eating: nourishing your body over a 10-hour period and then allowing your body to rejuvenate by refraining from food and caloric beverages for the remaining 14 hours (most of this time is spent sleeping!).


This 14:10 eating pattern is based on published science that shows weight loss can occur when a person finishes their last meal in the early evening and allows 14 hours of fasting to rejuvenate the body.1  While research is ongoing, studies indicate that time-restricted eating may have profound benefits such as weight management, inflammation reduction and blood sugar control.2

How does Rapid Results Max work?

Rapid Results Max is an example of the most credible form of intermittent fasting called time-restricted eating — eating for a specific number of hours each day (nourishment period) and then refraining from food and caloric beverages for the remaining time (rejuvenation period). To get the best weight loss results and blood sugar improvements, most experts agree that 12 hours of fasting is the baseline to achieve these goals.3 Adding two more hours may enhance these benefits.


When following the Rapid Results Max program, you can enjoy Jenny Craig’s new and specially formulated Recharge Bar, to help you achieve a longer fasting period. You can consume the Recharge Bar during the fasting period usually between the 12- 14-hour mark, which will allow you to remain in fasting ketosis (this is when your body naturally switches from burning glucose to burning fat for fuel), so you can comfortably continue your fast from 12-14 hours without feeling overly hungry.


How can you eat and remain in a metabolic fasted state?

Research indicates that consuming something with a nutritional profile of primarily fat along with a small amount of carbs and protein will not trigger your body cells to end fasting ketosis.4

What is the Recharge Bar?

The Recharge Bar is a powerful, innovative bar that naturally extends your metabolic fast — without breaking it — to help make following the program and reaching your goals faster and easier. It was designed specifically for the Rapid Results Max program. Now it's available in Fudge Nut and Honey & Nut flavors!


It’s made with simple, healthy ingredients including nuts and a touch of honey. This is not your average bar and contains mostly high-quality fat, with a small amount of carbs and protein. Some of the simple, high-quality ingredients include macadamia nuts, pecans, coconut, almond butter, flax seeds and a little honey. It contains no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and it's gluten-free. The Recharge Bar fuels your body and curbs your appetite — to help you feel less hungry and maintain your fast— so you can take your results to the Max!



What does a day on Rapid Results Max look like?

It’s a simple 3-step process: Rest, Recharge & Repeat!

1. Rest

Let your body reset. Take a break from food and caloric beverages during the 14-hour rejuvenation period. This is a critical reset period for your body to regroup and regenerate after a busy day metabolizing food. Most of this time is spent sleeping!


2. Recharge

It’s time to eat smart. The revolutionary Recharge Bar helps to extend your fast without breaking it. So, if you start your rejuvenation/fasting period at 7 p.m., you can eat your Recharge Bar at 7 a.m. and then enjoy your breakfast at 9 a.m. For the remaining 10 hours of the day, nourish yourself with Jenny Craig’s chef-crafted meals and snacks.


Research shows our bodies are affected by the daily 24-hour light-dark cycle known as our circadian rhythm — an internal clock that tells us when to sleep, awaken and eat.5 As a result, aligning your meals with this natural clock may be beneficial for weight loss and fat loss.6,7 Research indicates that avoiding late-night meals can help your body switch into fat-burning mode sooner.6,7 Rapid Results Max leverages this science by giving you the calories (energy) you need during the day followed by a reset period at night to naturally support your body’s metabolism and biological clock. 


3. Repeat

Stick to the plan and take your results to the Max! Track your meals, your nourishment/rejuvenation periods, activity and more on the easy-to-use Jenny Craig app. Connect with your personal weight loss coach weekly for success strategies and personalized feedback. Coaching is a proven way to lose 3X more weight than dieting on your own!8


How is the Rapid Results Max program different from the Rapid Results or Classic program?

The Jenny Craig Classic Program is known for and praised by weight loss experts for its perfectly-portioned, balanced and delicious menus. This is coupled with the support of a Jenny Craig weight loss coach to address what and how much to eat. With the addition of Rapid Results, we now incorporate the timing or “when” to eat.


A rejuvenation period of 12 hours — which is a break from eating — is the key difference between the Classic and Rapid Results program. This fasting period was added based on evolving research that demonstrates the numerous health benefits of allowing your body time to regroup and regenerate by abstaining from food and caloric beverages.9 Research suggests that after 12 hours of fasting, the body switches from using glucose to fat for energy.9 It’s during this rejuvenation period that other health benefits such as blood sugar control and reduced inflammation can occur.9 Increasing the length of your fast may improve these benefits. Rapid Results Max extends the fasting period from 12 to 14 hours and includes the revolutionary Recharge Bar designed to help you increase fat burn, feel less hungry and maintain your metabolic fast on the Rapid Results Max program.


The menus between the programs differ, but coaching is always included with Jenny Craig.

I’m new to intermittent fasting. Are there any tips to make it easier?

Yes! Rapid Results Max makes intermittent fasting easier with the help of our revolutionary Recharge Bar — you can eat while you fast to avoid feeling hungry! Many members say they don’t feel like they’re fasting because they still eat frequently throughout the day on the program. Here are some general tips to help make intermittent fasting easier:


Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends adults get at least 7 hours of shut-eye a night. Getting enough sleep is a great way to support your overall health and may help you avoid overeating since lack of sleep has been linked to hormones that may influence hunger.10


Follow your menu plan.

Stick to your Rapid Results Max menu plan and make sure to enjoy all of your meals and snacks throughout the day. Jenny Craig menus are created by registered dietitians and nutritionists to promote healthy weight loss. Following your plan is key to achieving the best results possible!


Stay hydrated.

It’s easy to mistake thirst for hunger! If you have the urge to eat at night, you might actually need to drink some water. Instead of snacking, have a cup of soothing green or herbal tea. It’s the perfect way to unwind and hydrate.


Get support when you need it!

Losing weight isn’t a piece of cake — but Jenny Craig makes it easier (and lets you eat cake, too). Make sure to reach out to your weight loss coach for tips and motivation every week! We’re here to help you reach your goals.

I had to hunt to find info on the Max system - why (or where) is all the excellent info on this page not made available on the Jenny Craig national page? My consultant wasn’t yet familiar with the program so I had to research it on a Sunday. Please make this detailed research about the importance of fasting available - and easily -  on your website. Now I understand why I’m eating the nut bar during fasting. Also when we bought the max system, we were given the option of the bar or nuts....is that correct? I see only benefit info about the nut bar.

I have looked at sample menus and there don’t seem to be many meat free alternatives and certainly even fewer vegan dishes.
