5 Reasons Why You Should Follow a Personalized Diet Plan

Curious about trying a personalized diet plan? First, let’s consider your options. Every person is different, yet so many diets are the same. Many programs take a general approach to weight loss that’s supposed to work for most people — count your calories, cut your carbs, exercise more — without providing much support. Others hone in on food fads, like celery juice cleanses or the keto diet for a “quick fix.” If you’re tired of getting conflicting weight loss advice, a personalized diet plan might be just what you need to start losing weight. Unlike a generic meal plan that anyone can follow, a custom diet plan takes your unique lifestyle into consideration. If you’re looking to lose weight, consider these five reasons to try a personalized diet plan.

Simple Carbs vs. Complex Carbs: What’s the Difference?

If all the recent talk about low-carb diets has left you dazed and confused — or, worse, has got you considering a diet that limits your intake of this essential nutrient in an effort to lose weight — we’re here to set the story straight.

11 of the Best Foods for Men's Health

Convenience and healthy foods usually don’t go hand in hand (unless, of course, you’re following the Jenny Craig program!) Generally speaking, foods that are ready to eat right off the supermarket shelf — think greasy potato chips or a sugar-laden box of cookies — typically offer little or no protection from heart disease, diabetes, or obesity. To find healthy foods for men, you need to look beyond the boxes and bags. 


The foundation of your diet should be a mix of high-potency vegetables and fruits, healthy fats, and complete protein. With that in mind, we scoured the research to find foods that may not only boost men’s health, but also may support weight loss and muscle growth. So the next time you’re at the grocery store — you’ll want to load up on these 11 foods. If you’re following the Jenny Craig program, you’ll find most of these foods incorporated into your meals.
