  • Blueberry pancakes and sausage are good but pancakes come out like hockey pucks. Does any one have a different way to heat these??

    1. peggy33


      I've found a lot of the cook times are too long. I heat this entree for 1 min. Then take out the sausages and brown in a skillet. When they're done, pop the pancakes back in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. I also set aside the blueberries as I found they make for soggy pancakes. If you want to add them, about 10 sec in the microwave will do it. 

    2. Nickford


      Thx.will try

    3. DQMelody


      Try taking pancakes out , then put them back in & cook with sausages the remaining time. 


      I bet your microwave wattage is higher than most, IMO it's better to have higher than lower watts. 👍 until we make pancakes 😉

  • I’ve been on the breakfast/lunch plan adding a protein shake for dinner for about a month. Lost 5 lbs the first week but only a couple since then. I notice the weight loss in inches though. Is this normal? To notice more loss in inches than pounds? I’m finding myself discouraged. 

    1. ChristiS


      Some people notice weight loss more in inches than pounds.  Isn't that more important, anyway?  I think how you feel counts tremendously.

    2. tra00413


      Yes I know you’re right but we all k ow what a demon the scale can be!! Trying to stay focused on the way I feel and the looseness of my clothes!! Thanks for the input!!

    3. DQMelody


      Try the low carb menu & eat all your supposed to.
      It Sounds crazy but super important because as I'm sure you know, your body goes into starvation mode & stores anything you eat. My husband had also lost weight & then was stuck while on the classic menu. We switched him to the low carb menu & he starting losing weight again. 

      Not sure if it will work for you but never hurts to try😇

  • Just signed up ..Do 

    I need to buy any additional foods?

    1. ChristiS


      Yes, you will need milk, fruit, and veggie portions.  Your consultant should go through all of this with you after you get your food (depending on which plan you signed up for) and it's in the Getting Started Guide, too.  You can find the guide in the Jenny app.

  • Is the balanced diet the rapid results menu? I'm very confused. I just received my first shipment and there aren't instructions or diet menus. I downloaded the app and still have zero direction. People on here are saying to get all the diet plans on the app but where on the app? I feel like i've been through it back and front and still can't find the plans on pdf or how do I figure out if I should be eating 1200 calories or 1500 calories or 2000 calories. What am I missing? Please help!

      yes. I got meals and a packing inventory slip. But that's it.

    3. ChristiS


      So, you got breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks for every meal and every day?  I think that's considered Rapid Results menu.


      Have you connected with a consultanbt, yet?  That is super important.  If you haven't connected with one, you should probably call Jenny Care.

    4. cyndi_rocks!


      In the app if you click view menu in the upper right-hand corner, you can download the whole menu there for the week.  You can also match up the Jenny menu day to the calendar month day.


  • I just got the menu that was supposed to go with my delivery for week 1. I did not get the Jenny Craig shake or the Jenny Craig dressing. Are these usually included or is this something you buy separately?

    1. Kedi


      The shake & salad dressing is a separate purchase.  

    2. cyndi_rocks!


      You can substitute a milk or low cal yogurt for the shake if you didn’t purchase the shake this week.

  • I just started one day of maintenance a week and don't know how to track the Jenny Craig Snack bars--the chocolate fudge brownie bar. Can anyone tell me how I count it?

  • Day one on Premium 2 year plan and already tonight's dinner isn't in the order and a beef item that was to have been substituted was not.  Is this common?  I don't want to be dealing with fixing messed up orders each week.

    1. ChristiS


      Be sure to call Jenny Care.  Jenny's customer service is great and always makes things right.

    2. AubreyJoy


      That's encouraging, thanks.  I think I've had a run of bad luck with getting started, from communication problems, website confusion, and order mistakes.  But the people on the phone have been very nice and I want this to work.

    3. ChristiS


      I started Jenny  over 5 1/2 years ago.  Been on maintenance for 5 years.  I had a rough start, too.  I was actually thinking about this last night.  I'm so glad I stuck it out and worked through the kinks, because being on Jenny Craig was a life changer for me.  I think there are more challenges now, with shipping problems and maintaining adequate supplies and staff to pack and ship orders.  I run a small business, and I know the COVID issue has created problems in so many areas.  I hope you work through the issues you've had quickly so Jenny can help you become the best version of yourself like it did for me.  


      Best of luck!

  • yogurt instead of milk?

  •  Hate Fish, Tuna Dill Salad on menu tonight! Help

    1. ChristiS


      I'm not a canned tuna fan, either, but did alright with the Tuna Dill Kit.  I think @Tricia_Marie favors putting her is bit dill pickles.  Here is a recipe to make it zesty and pout it in a tomato:  


  • I am brand new here and looking forward to receiving my first week's package next week!  I am hopeful that this is the route to be healthy and lose weight.  Very excited to see results! 

    1. ChristiS


      Welcome!  It's a great program.  Looking forward to reading your posts about your success!

  • Can I change some of the food items on my next order? Starting next wendsday October 28

    1. ChristiS


      I think it might depend on the program you purchased.  Probably a good idea to talk to your consultant or call Jenny Care.

  • I just got my food delivered, but no paperwork. Does it matter what meals I have each day as long as I have one for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack?

    1. Trixie123


      The Jenny Craig app has the daily menus by plan and the amount of calories you should eat each day. You can download the app on your phone. I believe most people follow the 1,200 calorie plan but your consultant can advice you on the best calorie plan for you. Are you doing rapid results or the classic plan? 

    2. ThinBrandie


      I'm doing Rapid Results and they told me I can change the days around but not the meals.  So, if you have a plan for Day 6 but want to use it on Day 1, you move the entire day - not just the mail.  My week 1 ended yesterday and I've lost 4lbs.

  • My menu says sunrise scramble and egg cheese and turkey sausage burrito on 2 of the days, but instead I got 2 cheese omlettes. If something is out of stock  do they replace it with a comparable item?

    1. ChristiS


      Usually that's what they do.  The first time it happened to me I was surprised they didn't tell me.  They just sent replacement items.  You can always call Jenny Care to find out.  Once, I made a big stink about it because I didn't like the replacement item.  (I was on a plan where I chose my own foods.)  Jenny cusotmer service credited me.

    2. Doconc


      Typical! They will be of little help unless you reach someone mon thru Thursday. You can always call customer service but do not expect a reply if you leave a message.

  • I am little confused about the calorie intake. It appears that the meals are the same for everyone. Does this mean that all body types are on the same calorie plan? This would be different from other plans that factor in your weight when calculating how many calories you can have a day. If it works, then great, but it just seemed odd, so I want to make sure I am on the right track here. 


    1. Trixie123


      @smith73 Jenny has two different calorie plans 1,200 and 1,500 based on your starting weight.  Also Jenny has the rapid results where you eat for a 12 hour period and then fast for 12 hours. During the 12 hour period you eat more calories early in the day when your metabolism is higher. Another plan is the classic plan which which the traditional plan. Hope this helps.

    2. ChristiS


      There are different calorie plans with Jenny Craig.

  • I know you are not going to want to hear this, but...try drinking two glasses of water before you eat your meals.  It helps you feel full.


    Dieting is hard, but not impossible.  Good luck.

  • WI(weigh in) week two.  Down a few more pounds for a total of 9!  

    1. Doconc


      Be aware this will slow down dramatically. The first 7-9 lbs are water. However the good news is you will lose the weight you want if you stick to the plan, eat nothing else & be patient. I have lost16 lbs so far. Now about a lb a week or a little more & I feel better. Stick to lt

    2. Kedi


      Thank You Doconc,  Yes the first weight loss is water.  The loss has slowed down since the first week already!   But sticking with it is the key.  

      Sounds like you are doing good.  Congrats on the 16 pounds.

  • I was wondering where to find the JC menus?  I'm a member & logged in but I don't see a menu so I can order. 

  • Does anyone have a better way to cook the Jenny tacos than the microwave?  The tacos taste like cardboard.



    1. dmh1974


      Do you have an air fryer? I read in the Facebook group that they either bake the shells flat (remove the filling and heat separately) or put them in the air fryer and eat them like tostadas. 

    2. peggy33


      Are you talking about the Chicken Street Tacos? I seperate the stuffing and the tortillas. I heat 2 of the corn tortillas on a griddle and use for the tacos. The other 2 go in a 425 degree oven. Spray with Pam and let them crisp up and eat like chips. About 3 minutes per side but watch them.

  • I received the simple plan food today, but I expected to receive a menu plan that list fruits, veggies, snack times, etc. There was nothing included in the box except for the food. Did I skip a step here? Should I had made a coaching appointment before ordering the food??

      You can also contact a Jenny Craig Center and speak to a coach.  They will send or e-mail your menus.

      Thank you!

      Good luck reaching anybody

  • Week one, day 2..... my sunshine sandwich was missing the Canadian bacon and cheese.  Plus, I have to adjust the time and power level for micro in order to not have it be a hockey puck upon finish.  

    1. ChristiS


      Yikes!  Be sure to contact customer service about that quality control issue.  Save the wrapper and give them the lot number and such.  They should offer a replacement.  I've always had good luck with Jenny's customer service.


      A lot of folks take the sandwich items apart to heat them.  This keeps the bread from getting chewy and they cheese from melting fully off the item.  Heat the egg a bit and then put it together with the bread and the cheese and heat it.  Or, you can toast the bread part.  It will taste better if you heat it this way.  A lot of people like to use the air fryer, too.

    2. nanaulson


      Try toasting your English muffin separately and add the microwaved egg, cheese and bacon.  Much better.


    3. Doconc


      This is about losing weight not taste! If taste & preparation are issues for you, think twice before starting because you will not be happy. Eat only what is on the menu & nothing else & you will lose weight. Do not get hung up on buying extra food you like or preparation & taste. If you stick to it you will lose the weight. I am a cook & guivkly came to realize this diet isn’t about taste. If it was they would have very few customers
