  • Just curious...did anyone else experience nervousness when they first ordered?


  • I just ordered my first week of food (the 3/2 plan). Does anyone know where I can find the lists of what are in the first four weeks of food?  Thank you!

      You should be able to see menus in the app, I believe.

  • Starting this morning! I received my food on Friday and I'm starting my journey today. I'm a little confused about the process, since I am needing to seek out all the answers instead of having a book to guide me. I need to lose at least 30 pounds and I'm really hoping this is going to work for me-I'm in healthcare and have a very, lets say...unpredictable daily routine. LOL. Are there certain times I need to eat? Do I just eat the food, or can I add vegetables and fruits and if I can, what kind and how much?

      Depending on which plan you purchased, you should have gotton a getting started guide and a consultant.  I think JC has a program now where you only get food, though,  They don't seem to consider it part of the weight loss "plans."

       

      You can and should eat unlimited "free" nonstarchy vegetables.  You can have limited fruits, too.

      Another good one besides Bolthouse is Bernstein's Light Cheese Fantastico.  That one is in the aisle with the shelf stable bottled dressings.

      Ken's light dressings are great.  Ceasar, Chunky Blue Cheese, Northern Italian.  This is my first week so I'm using Jenny's but I compared the calories etc and they are very close.

      Is balsamic vinegar and light olive oil a good option?

      @Medic mommy & @Lynnzee Thank you!! It turns out all I needed was a weight loss journey to do the thinking for me. JC has made it so simple to stay the path! 😃

  • I just received my second box of food. I slipped up a couple of days when we went camping. I was pleasantly surprised that the food is good. I have gained 30lbs in the last two years and want to feel and look better I really hope this works.

      Congratulations on joining a great program!  Believe me when I say Jenny Craig works.  Five years ago, I lost 40 pounds with Jenny Craig and I've kept it off!  I've never before in my life lost that much weight and kept it off!

  • Hello,  is there any special things to consider for people with history of Gastric Bypass.  I had mine 10 years ago and 40 lbs have came back over last 4 years.  Is 1200 calorie diet getting enough in??? Thanks. Laura

  • Just joined how long will it take for my food to arrive to me


  • The Jenny Website is very limited.  I would like to be able to compare macronutrient of food to tailor my own menus with the optimum balance for weight loss. I am sure the planned menus do that, but I think I could also do it while avoiding the foods I absolutely detest. 

     

    Being able to make your own smart choices easily within the Jenny program -- would be more helpful and would support long-term success. The Website is LIMITED.

      My Fitness Pal is great - it shows all the nutrition of each food as you input the info.  I have been on JC before and am just rejoining again and it was one of the best at making sure I had all my nutrients.

      I quite MyFitnessPal because I really started to detest double tracking. I started to follow the diabetic exchanges and it was so much easier to remember. I had so much on my plate, literally. Track food, track weight in Libra and Garmin Connect, track steps and actual activity outside the usual basal activity. Actually remember to write my food macros down and journal because I didn't need to order all the JC food because I was at goal or near goal because they changed the program. It got crazy so I left and started to do a whole nutritional program with a dietician. I'd love to go back to JC for the convenience but now that its delivery due to Covid according to the calls I've been getting, I don't want to pay that extra cost. Can someone update me? Are centers open now?

  • I hopped in here because every time I try to place an order online I have technical issues. I have contacted jenny craig many many times about this. I have sent screenshots of the problem. They never resolve the issue. I have tried ordering from other devices both in my home and in other places. No change. It forces me to have to order through a consultant which is time consuming. Please help. The problem is my cart will automatically empty while I am ordering or it will not let me put the card on file through and bounces back to the home welcome dashboard. This has been going on for a year. I asked to speak with technical support directly and I was told they can't put me through to them. I find this very disconcerting. I know this is on the tech end and not my end. They have told me they fixed it and it never got fixed. I have tried chrome, internet explorer, firefox. All same issue. It is not a search engine issue. I know this is not me this is a problem with my account from a tech standpoint. Please assist.

      I did.

  • Hey guys- thanks in advance for feedback. So with the pandemic it’s kind of difficult getting the in person experience. Just started my first week last Tuesday. I’ve supplemented some of the hunger with healthy fats like almonds, cashews, and pistachios, almond butter as well. I weighed in at 205 im 5’6. 
    I’ve actually put on a lb. I haven’t cheated or splurged on pizza, I haven’t eaten vegetables because I hate vegetables and that includes salad. Tomorrow is day 6 and I’m just feeling hungry and without hope for my self on this particular plan. I work out with fairly decent weights 3 times a week and also do cardio 3 times per week. I average a loss of 500 cals for each workout whether it’s cardio or weights. I’m not really sure where I’m screwing up? That’s a 3000 cal a week burn so even with the healthy fats I SHOULD STILL BE LOSING .... right? Help... shrug

      Sometimes you can gain weight the first week because the low calorie items weigh heavier in terms of mass. Ex. a tiny piece of candy vs. a whole apple. Give it a week and see if you drop then. Also salt/water weight/ time of the month can affect it too. Also I agree you do need to add veggies. Jazz them up or try a new one? For example spaghetti squash with tomato sauce tastes sooo much like pasta. I love it!

    3. LuckyNana

      I mix steamed veggies into many of the dishes including the various versions of scrambled eggs.  The gravy and sauces work well with them.

       

    4. mjtbq1

      mjtbq1

      The veggies are important.  Salads.  That fills me up and helps.   But if you are eating almonds cashews and pistachios that could completely derail all your work.  Check what you can substitute.

  • Some of my food don't match my  mobile app menu.         Does it matter which meal I choose      or is there a combination of meals that should go together ?  Thank you

      miller 64 or michelob ultra, or vodka are lower drink options. Wine spritzer. Sounds funny when you order it but in the glass nobody knows.

      Last time I was on JC with a consultant, she said you can mix any lunch/dinner item you want for your daily meals.  There isn't a set meal plan that works better.  They are designed to mix and match what you like.  The meal plans just make it easier to follow for some people.

  • Hi I'm new - can anyone tell me what the 3 dots at the bottom of the menu in the Limited Foods row mean?  It's my first week and one of the dots is black and the others empty.  Does this mean I can have a vegetable serving 3x a day??  Also, my center didn't have any Get Started Books?  Where can I get one?  I know it's online but I'm old fashioned and prefer to have it in my hand to refer to. Thanks!!!!

      Hi @Gizzma, Welcome to Jenny Craig! If you are following our Classic menu you are allowed up to 3 Limited Foods per day. For example, 1 limited food would be 1 tbsp of cream cheese, barbecue sauce, or sour cream. We would be happy to mail you a copy of the Getting Started Guide, feel free to send me a private message with your information to your account. I can also email you a PDF version until it comes in the mail. 

    2. Gizzma

      Gizzma

      I did find the PDF in the Jenny Craig app but the book would be helpful when I'm out and for a quick reference. Appreciate it!! I sent a private message with the info, Have a wonderful day!!!.

      I want the welcome packet too (we paid top dollar).  I asked customer service if I could get one mailed and customer service said NO I could have pdf.  WOW.  I have 1st phone mtg tomorrow morning and will ask.  But my experience not good with counselors  but strong with community. I think it’s terrible not to send all the info packet with order.   I’m a lifetime member and kept weight off long time.  I’m starting over today was first day.  It went just fine.  I want to pick my own food too much sweets.  And I’ve forgotten what is difference between classic and balanced plan. I had no clue what plan I was put on no discussion and despite telling rep I don’t like sweets I got tons of sweets.  I don’t like ordering with a counselor either and I’m going to hopefully get this how I liked it back when I was on JC about 2000?  Long time.  But I like the foods.  There used to be a busier on line community looks like not much posting.  Well looking to learn.   I’m wondering if I should have tried Nutrisystem it’s got great ratings too and much cheaper.  Will see how first 2 weeks go.  

  • does anyone have a blank menu out there that has the list of foods to add with the 1700 cal diet?  I didn't get one this week and feel i need to have it to organize myself and make sure i'm getting in all the added fruits, veggies etc.

      Hi Shelley.

      I'm looking for a 1200 calorie blank menu. Did you find a blank menu yet? 

      Thanks.

      I think menus are available on the app.

  • I recently just started the program.  This morning Inhad a chocolate shake, but had a problem mixing it with a spoon.  Is there a shaker or blender anyone recommends?

      Blender Ball Cups are available- I’ve had good luck with the brand Contigo. Right now I’m using the Zullay milk frother to blend my shake.

    3. Kobuck

      I saw shakes on my menu, but none in my box. (Just started). How many calories are in each shake, and perhaps I can substitute?

    4. mjtbq1

      mjtbq1

      The shakes cost extra they should have told you.  I like the vanilla not fan of chocolate. I believe there’s a milk substitute.  I was told I’d receive information on substitutions w my order but I got nothing but the 2 menus.  For the money this costs I’d think it be more upper scale and provide all the pamphlets and brochures instead of being told no you can get on line.  SMH really thinking this will be 2 weeks then to Nutrisystem. If they have bad customer service at least it’s only costing me 1/2 the price. 

  • So i got my first box of food to start today.  I will be honest and say I'm pretty disappointed with the amount of sweet items that are part of the program and such a high amount of carbs.  I don't normally eat much of sweets and do not want to and am not into bars.  I was hoping for more healthy natural food meals.  The offices in my area are closed so I signed up online and there was not options to choose any type of meal plan but, when I downloaded the app there appear to be different meal plan options.  I sent a message and hoping I can change to a different plan or be able to customize the food as if I were purchasing it from an office location that will better suite me and wanting to stay on more of an anti-inflammatory diet.  The sweet stuff will cause me too much joint pain.  I especially can't eat sweet for breakfast, blech!  I choked down one of the cinnamon buns that was on my plan today but the dogs got the other one.  For me it was just so gross and had to go brush my teeth.  Does anyone do different meal plans or customize their own purchases of food?  If so, how does that work?

      Annamarie H - Jenny Craig

      Hi @TStan we'd be happy to go over our different menus with you.  Give us a call at 1-866-706-4042 to go over your options.  Have a great day!

      Same thing happened to me.  I was very clear I don’t like sweets I have 2 weeks of sweets.  As a lifetime member I had it down where I ordered what I wanted and I didn’t need big variety I did well eating what I’m liked ... I have to eat this 2 weeks but if I don’t have better options I’m choosing another program. I chose JC because I lost a ton of weight and kept it off over 5 years then major life changes and in a few years plus quarantine I’m due to get on a program.  I’ve tried them all,  I just liked JC.  But it’s nothing like it was when I first joined and lost all the weight. Will see.  But I can’t take all the sweets. 

  • I tried this program before and lost 2 pounds per week. Stoped because I was young & couldn’t afford it. Instead walked 2/3 hours daily and took phentermine, lost 30 pounds. After a baby, my body is being stubborn so back to Jenny to get started again. Good luck.

      So update; since I started again with Jenny.. it’s been hard bc too many changes. The food is horrible bc I didnt get to choose. I was told the second week I’d get to choose but that was a lie. Wasted my money, before I could make my order they sent me a box of the same horrible food. I needed hot sauce to finish each meal. I lost weight bc I hated the food & did not eat.. which is unhealthy. I wish I was told up front the 1st two weeks they pick the food for you. I want a refund because I literally didnt eat a single meal from the box they sent me & had to do extra grocery shopping. & covid isn’t helping either bc no in person weekly meetups feels like you’re dieting alone. I used to love Jenny 😞

      I understand completely.  First thing tomorrow I’m making sure they don’t auto renew me another 2 weeks.  I went on at length with phone rep to place order I wanted no sweets if I could have cheese curls chips I wanted that not the cakes and I got all sugar sweets for breakfast too.  And there are other options.  It’s like I had no conversation the sales rep (that’s what they are they are not consultants) sold me what she wanted.  Cinnamon rolls, Fudge bars I was very specific. I’m very disappointed.   Tomorrow gonna make sure it’s not auto renew I did as I did well on Nutrisystem too.  I did Nutrisystem before JC n got down to 105.   Thin for me.  JC I was happy at 125-130 I’m 5 foot 4.  I liked both plans but I like JC food better.  But I chose my food it was t like this I can’t stand all these sweets.  I did these plans years ago and just remembered I liked picking my food with JC.   The customer service is non existent. I feel completely victim of bait and switch. 

    4. mjtbq1

      I talked to the consultant yesterday at the Center near me.  She seems to be great.  The last one was so awful I just stopped.  It was too expensive to deal with that lady and horrible customer service.  But, I got 2 weeks food online and all sweets despite my conversation with the sales rep. and that their job to sell.  So now I'm going to choose all my foods using the pre-planned menu as a guide and email what I want to the Consultant and pick it up curbside and this way I can order just one week.  2 weeks took up the whole freezer.  So I'm gonna give it a chance.  I'm not going to use the online.   I also got the liquid vanilla shakes.  But I compared to liquid and the liquid premade has more fat and sugar but it's good to have the options.  I lucked out.  If the consultant had not helped me I was going to do the 2 wks and go to Nutrisystem.  I've done that before and its half the price and was good.  I think JC food is better but they discontinued some of the best stuff.  Taking it one week at a time.
