  • Can you switch your meals at lunch and dinner on the same day? I’ve found that some entrees scheduled for dinner I would rather have at lunch instead.


    1. ChristiS

      ChristiS

      I've heard it's OK to do that.  I think the preference is to eat the heavier meal for lunch, though.

  • Hello friends - I will be traveling from NC to GA for 3 weeks in November and am trying to plan my JC food.  Is it possible to pick up food at a different center?


    1. ChristiS

      ChristiS

      Yes, you should be able to do that.

  • Does anyone know if we are hungry during the day can we have some free veggie?


    1. ChristiS

      ChristiS

      Yes, you can.  From the Fresh & Free list.

  • I'm a first timer, only looking to lose 10-15lbs, but its a stubborn weight that wont seem to go in the ways i normally would drop some weight. I am starting today, and I was never told anything about the fruits and veggies or "Fresh and Free" stuff that I can add to my meals. Can anyone tell me where i can access more info on this please?

      I got that info from a handout they gave me called Tips and Tools

  • Hey All, I am starting the RR tomorrow...any suggesstions or tips?


    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      I'm a bit late to respond, sorry!

       

      I like some of the meals a lot better if I heat them in the convection oven (air fryer) rather than the microwave.

       

      I like to space out my meals differently on work days than weekends. I need that energy in the morning to focus and be productive on weekdays, whereas on weekends I would rather eat later into the day.

       

      Eat all of your fruits, vegetables, and milks + added protein and fats if applicable. You don't get bonus points for starving yourself.

       

      Plan ahead. If you know when you will eat something of plan and you track it and select something before you are hungry and in a social setting it is so much easier.

       

      Make a note of the meals you don't really like. You will forget!

  • Hey All, I am starting the RR tomorrow...any suggesstions or tips?


  • I am doing the rapid results max program and almost done with the first week. For those of you who have done this program, are you only allowed the fresh and free vegetables as an add on for lunch and dinner or can you choose one of the starchy vegetables?


    1. ChristiS

      ChristiS

      You should use Fresh & Free.

  • Just started, wish me luck!

      Good luck! Stick with it! It will be a little hard at first but your body will adjust! Mine did! Sorry for all the exclamation marks!

  • Hi, I’m new here and on day one with the RR Max program. Are there other substitutes for milk other than yogurt and the Jenny shakes?

     


  • Worked for JC several years ago and also worked the program and lost weight easily. Now I find myself with about 50 lbs I don't need and chronic back pain and multiple other health issues. I'm making this investment in myself with my 65th BD coming up next month so instead of a cruise and tons of food, it's time to get healthy as a slide into the third trimester of my life.  I remember the food being very good so I hope that hasn't changed and the folks are nice and don't judge.  So....off I go!  Glad to be back and looking forward to seeing less of me in the mirror!

      I'm turning 63 next month and it's time to invest in myself!  Good luck to you and belated happy birthday!

  • I have been doing the max on Jenny and have lost only 11b a week. I am a very long Jenny client and trying something different.  Could it be the time I am eating or that I have stopped working out. What is the best time to eat recharge bar, breakfast, lunch, dinner.  Can I skip breakfast and still loose weight.

    I do eat most food late in the day.

     

    Thanks for your help, Jane

      I eat my breakfast late.  I do the 14 hour fasting so that only leaves 10 hours to get my meals and snacks in.  I do not eat the recharge bars and they will not stop sending them to me.  They are 190 calories and I don’t really like them.  Maybe try taking a short walk after you eat a late dinner.  I try to move a lot.  8-11,000 steps a day.  Don’t always make it but I try.  I’m down 16.4 lbs in 8 weeks.  That was spending a week in Colorado without Jenny food and 5 nights camping at the Fryebuy Fair in Maine.  Mostly with Jenny food plus a few treats.  Keep going.  

  • I'm back! 13 years ago, I lost 70 lbs on JC. I'm back, not looking to lose 105 lbs. Starting week 3 and I'm feeling great. I've been exercising on my elliptical for 30 mins and today even did a workout on my bowflex. I'm enjoying this new found energy and I'm only down 8 lbs! I can't imagine how I'll feel when I get 105 lbs off this frame! I don't think about all the money I'm spending on the program,  I think of all the money I'm saving by not having to go buy new clothes because nothing in my closet fits, can't wait to shop in my closet. Also all the money I'll save from not having knee surgeries or hip surgeries, and prescriptions for high blood pressure.  This investment is for me!


    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      That's great! I feel motivated by the clothes as well--it costs a fortune to look decent in the next size up, whereas moving a size down is easy because I have been there and have the wardrobe!

  • Hello! 

     

    Back on JC after about 9 years off. Today is day 6... First weigh in tomorrow. I'm excited to see so many people on this journey too. Hope everyone is having a great week!


    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi @Lo2650 !

       

      I hope your second week goes as well as your first did!

       

      Best of luck.

       

      The weekly threads have the most activity.

      I'm back on JC too after 5 years. I thought I would give the new program a try. I just started week 2. I lost 5 lbs my first week, so that is encouraging. I do recall that weight loss tends to level off after the 1st week, at least for the over 50 crowd. I'm not discouraged though. I just moved to a new house, so all the activity with moving boxes, furniture and cleanup has helped when it comes to exercise. Good luck to the rest of you that restarted JC. We can do it!

  • HI!

    Newbie question here...I am in my second week, lost about 7 lbs. so far and I just started exercising again with the newfound energy and confidence.  Very happy!

    My question is this- I was chatting with my coach this week choosing my foods for next week and she gave me the option of a bagel for breakfast.  I said, "I haven't had a bagel in a while!" She said, "It's good with laughing cow cheese on it, you should try that".

    But I was under the impression that we are not supposed to add anything to the menu- except for the fruit and veggies on the menu for the day?  I am really following this to the letter and we were at the end of our call so I just said ok to her suggestion.

    Is anyone adding things to their menus?  I am assuming the menu is the 1200 calories I am allotted and something else would throw it of...

    Thanks for any guidance you can provide!


    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi Leslie,

       

      You get a milk with your breakfast, I believe, depending on the menu, on the days you don't have a shake. Also depending on your menu you get a protein or two (or more).

       

      Check the app or the booklet for the exchange, but I'm pretty sure some cream cheese or laughing cow cheese could be one of those things from your menu.

      I’m 8 weeks in and down 16.3.  Love it.  Had a vacation week in that 8 weeks and  a 5 day  camping trip to a Fair.  Brought Jenny with me camping.

  • Hello my fellow JC family. This is my first time on JC and I am on day 2. I must be honest I had Gastric Sleeve surgery several years ago. I have learned the hard way that it is truly a tool and that I need more tools in my belt for this journey. With a high stress job in healthcare, the pandemic and relocation I have been stress eating.  With that being said I have re-developed some old habits and put on 30 pounds. I realized I needed structure and the no brainer with what to eat. It's just where I am at this moment in my life and realize it's okay. I am excited to be here and look for getting and receiving continuous support.

    Thanks for letting me share!!


    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi Cateye! Good luck on your journey. I've been at it over 8 weeks now and am realizing this is only worth it if I develop habits that I am willing to do for the rest of my life. Sure, the food is tasty and so easy, but it has to be part of my long-term plan to take care of myself.

    2. JaneE

      JaneE

      Hi Cateye, I have been a JC client for a long time and managed to keep my weight off or stay with in 10 lbs.  I also just retired from a high stress healthcare job and forgot about all the good eating habits I learned a long the way. This is the heaviest I have been in a long time, but will take off with JC. Just forget about what you did and move on as you are.  Good Luck!!

      Thanks for you healthcare services!!

      Hi Sadie! Welcome and good luck.

  • Hello, everyone! I’m brand new and start tomorrow on the Rapid Results Max program. I was looking over my first day and I have a question. I know that I’m supposed to fast for 14 hrs, but my question is about the 12 hrs of eating window. I am having the pumpkin loaf and a shake for breakfast. But could I actually have the shake with my fruit snack at 3pm? Or what if I wanted the cupcake with my fruit snack instead of with my dinner? Is that allowed? Thank you!

      This is day 5 for me. I have swapped lunch and dinner on occasion and still losing. This morning's breakfast was waffle. I swapped the cheese curls around and brought fruit instead. I used some of my afternoon fruit on top of my waffle this morning.  I just read that on the 14 hour fast that we should not drink diet soda. Ooops! I have been drinking diet Ginger Ale in the evenings. I will try to go without it this evening. 

       

      I am not sure what our consultant will tell us about swapping things like I have or as you asked. I'll ask on Friday when we have our call. I need to do what works for me. I get too hungry having fruit with dinner. But if I wait about a half hour and have a Jenny snack, I am fine. That is how my body is responding so I am going with it. Good luck. In five days I have lost 6 lbs. so whatever changes I have made have not hindered my weight loss. 

    2. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi LSE! Of course your consultant can give you the official JC line on if this is acceptable. I believe it is per the plan--just eat within your time window.

       

      I personally find that if I try to force myself too much to adhere exactly to every single rule of a plan, I can do it for a few months but then I get burnt out. This time around I'm doing my best to follow the plan, as long as it works for me. So under my personalized "do what works for me" version of Rapid Results I am eating the food whatever time of day I want to. Breakfast is my favorite meal so sometimes I save it for "breakfast for dinner". My adaptation of the plan may not be as effective as losing weight quickly as the official plan, but I'm okay with that. I'm going slow and steady.

       

      Best of luck!

      I have my shake for my snack throughout the day.  Your coach I’ll advise you.  But I think as long as you eat just what is on the menu for the day….when you eat it doesn’t matter.

  • Almost to week 4 on my plan.  I found foods I didn’t like at all.  What is the best way to customize the next 4 weeks? Also how important is the recharge bar? I’m only eating it because it’s on the menu.  I don’t have problems doing the 14 hour fast without it.  


    1. RachelP123

      RachelP123

      Hi DByrd,

       

      I like to continue to follow the weeks 1-4 over and over again (I'm on week 9, doing week 1 for the third time). I then substitute out a few more things than I did in the past. I do this so I keep having variety, because if I only pick my favorites I know I'll get bored.

       

      My consultant told me someone she knows does the exact same menu every single week.

       

      I say do what you want to do. 

       

      Same with the bar. I was not big on the RR Max bar, so I'm doing RR with the bar I like-chocolate and peanut butter. If you prefer to skip the bar altogether I think they give you a substitution for those calories--a protein and a milk of your choice or something (depends on Canada vs US so I don't recall exactly but it's in the materials and your "consultant" can tell you exactly what it is)

  • I wish after you lose tge weight that Jenny had some kind of follow-on program like weight watchers that really helps you change your habits. When I started trying to combine normal food with Jenny, my counselor quit calling me. Very disappointed

      @Sally red there is a small group of us in the daily sharing thread that help each other along the way.  A few of us are on maintenance.  Check out our group.  We start a new thread every week.  Maybe you will find some of what you need there.
