Why Rapid Results Works - The Science Behind it

Most of you probably feel overwhelmed by the constant barrage of new news about weight loss. At Jenny Craig, we use cutting edge nutrition research to cut through the confusion and help guide you to optimal weight loss and management. This is why we’re excited to announce Rapid Results by Jenny Craig where you can lose up to 16 pounds in your first 4 weeks**. Average weight loss in the study was 11. 6 pounds for those who completed the program. Rapid Results is based on nutrition research that says it’s not just about what and how much you eat, but when you eat, that plays a factor in achieving your weight loss goal. Let’s take a look at the science behind Rapid Results and see why it’s so revolutionary for weight loss.           #wistia_chrome_27 #wistia_grid_34_wrapper .w-css-reset{font-size:14px;}

Results? Rapid Results is a science-based innovation to the Jenny Craig program and an expansion of the program you know and love. Members who completed Rapid Results lost up to 16 pounds in the first 4 weeks of the program!** We’ve created a new menu for you that matches the best times of day to consume your calories. Your metabolism follows a daily pattern, and because of this, from morning up to mid-afternoon is the most effective time to burn food calories. With Rapid Results, every member still receives comprehensive support from a weight loss consultant as well as the delicious Jenny Craig food.   **Average weight loss in study was 11.6 pounds for those who completed the program. How Does It Work? Recent studies have shown that each cell of our body contains biological clocks that follow a unique daily pattern, called a circadian rhythm. The 2017 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine was recently awarded to three American scientists who discovered the circadian rhythm gene. From this research, we’ve learned that our internal network of body clocks dictates when to sleep, awaken and eat. By following this natural daily rhythm, we can take advantage of our metabolism and ability to burn calories when it’s most effective.   The Rapid Results plan works with your natural body clocks to provide a time period of nourishment when you need it and can burn the food fuel most effectively, and then a period of rejuvenation during which your body can rest and regroup. When your body goes into rejuvenation mode, your body’s cells aren’t distracted by metabolizing food. They instead get a break to “clean house” and regenerate and repair themselves. Research demonstrates various benefits to following this natural daily cycle, including improvements in immune and metabolic functions as well as reduction of belly fat, which is associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes.1-3 How Is Rapid Results Different from the classic Jenny Craig program? The two main changes are prioritizing when you:   NOURISH: throughout the day when you can burn calories most effectively.

Staying Healthy at Work

Five days a week, work is your home away from home, and it can be tough to remain healthy with all of those tasty snacks coworkers bring to share, the long days at the desk, and, of course, the close proximity to everyone’s germs. But by sipping on water, stepping outside for a walk, and keeping your desk area clean, you can stay happy and healthy while on the job. Here are 8 tips for staying healthy at work.   Drink more H2O You’ve heard the popular rule to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day to stay hydrated, so bring a water bottle and keep it at your desk to sip on throughout the day, refilling as needed. Not only will you be less tempted by the break room vending machine, but water helps you feel full and stay more alert.   Step outside Do you often find yourself daydreaming while staring out of your office window? Then it’s time to take a few minutes to breathe fresh air and bask in the sunshine. Try to make it a daily habit to go for a quick walk or eat your lunch outside on a bench. Rather than focusing on deadlines and unread emails, notice the way the leaves are rustling in the breeze, the chirping of the birds and the sunlight filtering through the clouds. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle the remainder of your day after a little extra vitamin D from the sun.   Workout while working You may be stuck at your desk for the majority of the day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t burn a few extra calories while responding to emails. Periodic stretching will keep you awake and focused. Improve your posture by sitting on an exercise ball, which is easily kept under your desk when not in use. Instead of taking the elevator, take the stairs to get your heart pumping, lowering your risk for heart disease.   Stand up Sitting all day increases your risk for diabetes, heart disease and more. The good news is you can decrease your chances for all of the above, reduce your back pain, and boost your mood and energy with a sit-stand desk.   Walk and talk You’ve got several meetings in a day, and they are all scheduled for the office meeting room. Instead of sitting down with your coworker to brainstorm for the latest project, ask if they’d like a change of scenery and go for a walking meeting. You’ll both feel better by sneaking in a brisk walk and your new surroundings may lend fresh inspiration.   Brown bag it The catered lunches, home-baked goods from coworkers, and the vending machines are all tempting and can easily derail your diet. Bring your own lunches and snacks to stay on track. Plan lunches, like a mason jar salads, for the week on Sunday to avoid rushing on weekday mornings. If you do partake in an office lunch outing, eat smart and stick to light lunch menu items.   Sanitize everything The office may feel like a petri dish for the cold and flu, but you can stay healthy, especially during winter months when it seems like everyone is sick, by washing your hands often and keeping hand sanitizer at your desk. Your mouse, phone and keyboard also harbor thousands of germs that survive on hard surfaces for days, so disinfect regularly.   Take a break Your company grants you vacation time for a reason–they want you to use it! After all, you know what they say about all work and no play: work stress can take its toll on your body, leaving your immune system weak and open to illness. Take a break from work for vacation time, even if it’s one day of “me-time” to recharge, de-stress, and do whatever you like to do.

years of being pregnant and nursing my two children, my weight was out of control.  The pounds had piled on and I realized that I’d completely lost my sense of self since becoming a mother.  The photos taken at my son’s first birthday party helped me realize that I needed to make myself a priority to regain my self-esteem and feel whole and happy again.      I’ve used Jenny Craig in the past to lose weight, but this time felt different. It was the first time I was motivated to lose weight truly for myself and I made my success a priority. Learning from past mistakes of setting goals that were totally unrealistic, my goal this time was to lose 30 lbs. I built a great relationship with my wonderful Jenny Craig consultant, Connie, who provided me with support and guidance during our weekly appointments. I never missed our consultations, which were important to me as they helped me stay accountable throughout my amazing and successful weight loss journey. The food is yummy and my personalized menu plan was easy to follow, which I loved.     I lost 40 lbs.* on the Jenny Craig Program exceeding my original goal! It's unbelievable, but setting realistic goals and having on-going support worked so well for me. I am proud of my commitment and motivation to lose weight and I continue to embrace and practice the new healthy lifestyle that I learned at Jenny Craig. The principles of the program and the wonderful people I’ve met have truly changed my life forever. I am no longer afraid of food— it doesn’t control my life. I control what and how much I eat. I am a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend because of the Jenny Craig program. I have more energy now to enjoy my children and family!  Going to the center each week to check-in with Connie is still a highlight for me.  It's my ‘me time’ that so many of us new moms don't take for ourselves. I've finally unlocked the secret to healthy eating thanks to the Jenny Craig weight loss program and I feel great!   *Results not typical.  Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week.  Member received promotional consideration.     Check out the weight loss stories of other Jenny Craig members and learn how they have lost weight and kept it off following the Jenny Craig program.

How To Create A Weight Loss Strategy

Weight loss doesn't happen overnight. Generally, weight loss occurs as a result of pre-planning healthy, portion-controlled meals and scheduling time for calorie-burning activities on a regular basis. Planning is a big part of a successful weight loss strategy. Here are some steps to help you make your weekly plans work for you!   Be Realistic When you begin a weight loss program, you’re motivated and excited to see results. While this excitement is good, don’t let it tempt you to set unrealistic goals. Just as you didn’t gain your weight overnight, it’s not realistic to expect to lose it that quickly. To help ensure success, set small goals often but be sure to set the “right” ones.   Your plan should focus on the three important aspects of your weight loss journey: Eating Well -- practice a new dining strategy. Moving More -- increase the number of steps you walk. Living Life -- think differently; change from negative to positive self-talk.   Focus on the Benefits to Fuel Motivation After creating a smart plan with reasonable goals, remember to think about why it’s important to you. Think of all the benefits that completing your plan will bring such as: More energy A better self-image A greater sense of control Improved health Happiness with appearance Closer relationships   Fuel your motivation. Write down the benefits you want to gain, and place the list somewhere you’ll see it like on your mirror or your refrigerator. Every time you read it, imagine how those benefits will make you feel. Visualizing the “new” you can urge you to make healthier choices throughout the day.   Choose What Matters Most To get the most out of your program, share what's important to you with your consultant. Do you need support with eating out or managing afternoon munchies? Whatever you need your consultant is there for you.   Focus on the Benefits Once you choose your focus, think about the benefits that making such changes will yield. Focusing on the benefits can foster the positive attitude you will need moving forward.   Know Your Challenges When you think about your area of focus, take a moment to honestly assess who or what could get in your way. Then, make a plan to help keep you away from your goal detractors.   Set a Realistic Goal You didn't gain your weight overnight, so it's not realistic to expect to lose it overnight. To reach your success, set a goal that is specific, realistic and motivating for you. Perhaps your first goal is to lose 5* pounds in one month. Once you've reached this goal, make another realistic goal for yourself. And to fuel your motivation, don’t forget to reward yourself for all the hard work along the way.   Before you know it, you’ll be celebrating your new look and your new wardrobe! *Clients following our program, on average, lose 1-2 pounds per week.

Member Karen J. Lost 50* Lbs. and Was Featured in Health Magazine!

*Results not typical. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week   *Results not typical. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week   In her own words:   My name is Karen and I am a 45-year-old single mom, former professional athlete and current business owner of an indoor training center. I have battled my weight for years trying different diets and workout programs. My knowledge of nutrition and exercise is vast; however I still struggled to maintain a healthy weight. In November of 2015, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and placed on medication. This medication increased my struggle to lose weight.  When I reached an all-time high of around 224 lbs., I decided that enough was enough. I had tried diets consisting of powdered foods, prepping my own meals, doing intense exercise, and counting points, but I was never able to reach my goals or felt that maintaining a healthy lifestyle was possible.     The journey: My mom and I made a pact to get healthy, so we signed up for Jenny Craig. Since my mom retired, she had gained weight and was pre-diabetic so it was equally important for her to change her lifestyle. Joining together helped us stay motivated, accountable, and brought us closer together. This journey has been fun and surprisingly easy! The variety and taste of the food is amazing. The structure of the program, the weekly consultations, having a personal consultant, and planning ahead, set us up for success. I never felt deprived or that I was missing out. We would plan our food around our life including travel, holidays and family parties. It was great to be paired with a consultant who helped us every step of the way.  My consultant, Belen, has impacted my journey through encouragement, accountability and proactive planning. She encourages me by celebrating my milestones when I reached my goals. Her enthusiasm and structure help me focus on maintaining healthy behaviors. Our weekly consultations keep me accountable by tracking the previous week and planning for the upcoming week. I’ve avoided pitfalls by using this strategy for life events such as family parties, weddings and travel. She is a huge part of my success on this journey!   Transformation: I'm a better role model to my daughter, showing her how to make wise choices for herself by making better choices for her when I prepare her meals. My mom and I reached our original goal weights, which we set high, not believing at the time that we could do it. This program proved us wrong and now we have the confidence to achieve new goals we set for ourselves.   My 50 lb.* weight loss has impacted my life for the better. Currently, I am no longer on the arthritis medication and move around during the day with less pain in my joints. My energy level has increased and my overall desire to be active is greater than I can ever remember! My self-esteem and confidence has increased. I no longer stress about trying to find clothes that fit or hide my body. I was even motivated to become a Jenny Craig consultant to inspire and motivate others in their weight loss journey, and was just featured in the December 2017 issue of Health Magazine for my weight loss success!*  I now have a renewed peace of mind and feel this program has completely altered my approach to food and exercise.   *Results not typical. Members following our program, on average, lose 1-2 lbs. per week.

New Year’s Resolution Ideas You Can Accomplish

While the holidays are full of celebrating the moment and spending quality time with friends and family, many people embrace the opportunity that comes with the new year: A chance to set goals to accomplish throughout the year.   Not sure which goals to set in 2019? The best New Year’s resolutions are those that really speak to you and are achievable. Here are some great ideas you'll feel good about all year long! Make walking a part of your daily routine. One of the top New Year’s resolutions is to exercise more, which means gyms are typically packed for the first few months of the year. You can start your “move more” resolution by walking more each day. Whether it’s around the block with your family, a hike during the weekend or turning your work break into a lap around your building, you can work exercise into your schedule without worrying about the crowds. Don't delay your goals.  This applies to so many things: work, errands, getting together with a friend, cleaning out the garage—the list can seem endless sometimes (we get it)! While it can be easy to get caught up in scrolling through social media or watching your favorite television show, putting off your goals could actually be causing you more stress. Take a few moments to write out your plans for the day or week, then commit to accomplishing your tasks. Show yourself some love. When someone says they want to “get healthy,” it typically focuses on physical health. Don't forget about your mental and emotional health! It’s important to remember that your overall health is impacted by your emotions and mentality. When you have a positive mindset, it helps keep you motivated in all areas of your life. <br> <br> Take some time to do something for you! Whether it's reading a book or taking a relaxing bath after a long day at work, do something that makes you happy—you deserve it!   Invest in your hobby. Investing in something doesn’t always mean monetarily—time is an investment, too! If you love to read, set aside a specific time to read or find a day to join a book club. If you want to learn how to meal prep, look up an exciting new recipe or take a cooking class. The possibilities are endless once you decide to focus more attention on what you already love to do. Get more sleep. This is one New Year’s resolution idea that your body and mind will thank you for committing to. Your body needs to rest in order to recharge and recover from the day’s events, and denying yourself moments of rest can add to your stress levels. One way to potentially improve your sleep is to make your room a place where you can rest—try to avoid watching TV, hopping on your computer or scrolling through your phone before bedtime. Focus on healthy weight loss. Weight loss might be the most common goal on everyone’s New Year’s resolutions list. There are a number of ways to work toward healthy weight loss, including setting realistic goals, getting the nutrition your body needs, and incorporating more exercise into your week. Remember, the number you see on the scale isn't everything. By making a healthy lifestyle a priority, the rest of the pieces, including weight loss, will fall into place. <br>   The new year is an opportunity to rethink your habits and decide which ones are not serving your health. By making small changes, such as focusing on eating more nutritious foods or finding activities you love, you can begin your weight loss journey. Having a support system is so important: your friends, family and your weight loss consultant can help you stay motivated, keep you accountable and help you strategize if you hit a plateau.   We hope our list of New Year’s resolution ideas helps you come up with a few of your own!     Sources: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/communication/50-new-years-resolution-ideas-and-how-achieve-each-them.html

New Year's Resolution Weight Loss Tips

Jenny Craig is here to help. Schedule a free appointment with one of our weight loss consultants today! We can all agree that losing weight is one of the most popular resolutions to make for the New Year! And this is the year you’re ready and committed to making changes every month, not just in January (and we couldn’t be more excited for you!).   But after you’ve clinked glasses, cleaned up the gold and silver confetti, it’s time to get down to business. Having a weight loss resolution for the new year is a great start, but breaking your resolution down into mini-resolutions will help you meet your year-end goal–to be the best version of you! Here’s how: Make measurable goals With pen and dedicated notebook in hand, brainstorm and write down a list of measurable goals that will actually help your weight loss journey and help you conquer that weight loss resolution! The more specific the goal, the more attainable it is. Here are some healthy ideas to get you started: ●     Commit to taking the stairs wherever possible ●     Sign up for a 5K in your city even just walk ●     Commit to a 30-minute fitness class at least twice a week ●     Rid the pantry of chips, cookies or any unhealthy snacks ●     Commit to a weight loss program meal plan with Jenny Craig and stick with a low-calorie diet to help you hit your long-term weight loss goal. ●     Support a healthy metabolism by getting at least 8 hours of sleep every night and waking up at the same time each day. ●     Ditch the office break room at lunch and go for a 30-minute walk to get your body moving. ●     Watch your media content on a stationary bike instead of your couch ●     Trade in your soda (which has unnecessary calories) for tea, sparkling water or water with a slice of cucumber or lemon. If you can give yourself a gold star after accomplishing a goal just as you might have done as a kid, then you'll know it's measurable. And using a chart to track each goal with an accompanying gold star sticker pack isn't such a bad idea! Take it week-to-week That long list of goals seems just as overwhelming as the resolution to “lose weight,” doesn’t it? Don’t worry–you don’t have to start doing everything tomorrow. Instead of fretting about changing bad habits to good ones overnight, spread your mini-resolutions throughout the year. For each week, assign a few goals, and by the time the next week rolls around, you'll be ready to add a new goal, such as trying a new, non-starchy vegetable, testing out a new spice on your meal, or engaging in physical activity at least twice a week. Because you took baby steps and reached smaller, specific goals through the year, not only will you likely lose weight, but you will look and feel your very best! Treat yourself Because your mini-resolutions are measurable, it’s time to treat yourself. With all of those gold stars you’ve collected, set a non-food reward for the end of each month. Get a manicure in March, pick up new warm-weather workout gear in May, and splurge on a new pair of jeans in October, since we know you’ll be needing a smaller size! Additional New Year's Resolution Weight-Loss Tips ●     Stick with your routine and stay motivated. If this means marking off each day on a calendar to show your progress than go for it! Find a way that works for you to keep yourself motivated toward your weight loss goal. ●     Avoid eating out as much. While eating out, you'll most likely be faced with larger portions and unhealthier options. By cooking for yourself, you can monitor your portion size and know the exact ingredients you are consuming. ●     Get moving and keep moving. This doesn't have to be a structured gym session or class. Whether it is a walk around the neighborhood or a bike ride, all that matters is you keep your body moving. It is recommended that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise every week. ●     Find a group or a buddy who is working towards the same goal as you. Having support from peers is one of the keys to long-term weight loss success. So now when mid-January rolls around, instead of giving up on your New Year's weight loss resolution, keep going and make it to the finish line. The next time you think you can't do it, think again. You can do it and the above tips can help you reach your goal and keep the weight gain at bay. We hope that these weight loss resolution tips will help you to build a foundation for a healthy, happy, and successful new year!

Frozen Fruit & Veggies vs. Fresh - Does It Matter?

Think fresh is always best? Not necessarily! When foods are picked at their peak and flash frozen, their freshness and nutrients are preserved. Find out how frozen foods can be just as beneficial as their fresh counterparts and how they may even retain more vitamins. <br> Fresh vs. Frozen The main question between fresh and frozen comes from the common argument that “fresh is best” not just for taste, but for nutritional value. This has been debunked, thanks to a study1 conducted by Dr. Ali Bouzari at the University of California, Davis, where his team evaluated the vitamin content between frozen and fresh foods such as carrots, broccoli, strawberries and more. Dr. Bouzari and his team found no significant differences between fresh and frozen2 and noted that the amount of fiber and minerals like zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium stayed the same.   And while more studies need to be conducted, Dr. Bouzari noted that his studies showed frozen broccoli had more riboflavin and frozen blueberries had more vitamin C! Some of this comes down to how their fresh counterparts sit on the shelf (berries tend to be most potent when freshly picked, but when sitting on the shelf lose nutrients quickly), so it comes down to a matter of timing and how the food has been frozen—and when.  Double Check Your Labels You’ll also want to be mindful about the freezing process. Frozen fruit and veggies are typically picked at their peak, and flash frozen, or individually quick frozen3, to preserve their freshness. This process also helps to avoid those pesky ice crystals that form when your freezer fluctuates in temperature (again, be mindful of how active your freezer is).   At Jenny Craig, we work with over 40 professional chefs who demand quality ingredients, meaning they are able to capture the fresh tastes you love in a convenient, ready-for-you meal whenever you need it. We also encourage our members to add Fresh & Free Additions, an assortment of non-starchy vegetables, so that they can explore the fresh tastes of the season that can perfectly complement their meal, too!   For more information about our over 100 delicious frozen and pantry ready options, and to learn more about Jenny Craig, contact us for your free appointment.   Sources 1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25526594 2 https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/11/18/are-frozen-fruits-and-vegetables-as-nutritious-as-fresh/ 3 https://www.thespruce.com/what-does-iqf-mean-995719

How to Lose Holiday Weight Gain

Jenny Craig is here to help. Schedule a free appointment with one of our weight-loss consultants today!   The holidays are full of food, and it can feel like you have to pile your plate high to help your host (or yourself) with leftovers! However holidays can go on for days, and before you know it, you’ve gained some holiday weight.   If you have put on a bit of weight after the holidays, that’s okay! Here are some holiday weight loss tips to act as your guide for how to lose holiday weight gain.   Move more. Now is the time to move a bit more, and take advantage of the chilly weather wherever you are. A brisk walk during your break allows you to feel refreshed. If you’re in an area with snow, make a snowman with your kids or spend some time shoveling your driveway. <br> <br> You can also make small changes in your movement opportunities, like parking farther away from the grocery store or taking the stairs instead of the escalator. When you find small opportunities throughout the day to move, you are moving one step closer to holiday weight loss.   Don’t skip meals. You may think that the extra calories you ate during the holidays can be diminished by skipping a meal, but that sets you up for failure. Since you’re denying your body food, you’ll lose energy and potentially binge on treats or make rash decisions about your next meal. <br>   Cook at home. Oftentimes, the meals we get at restaurants are much larger portions, and are often cooked in fattier preparations. Take vegetable side dishes, which are typically sautéed in butter. When you cook at home, you control everything—from the ingredients to the oil to the cooking method, it’s all in your hands to make the healthiest choices possible. <br>   Control your portions. Portion control may have gone out the window when the holidays were around, but it needs to come back into play to reverse holiday weight gain. One way to retrain yourself in regards to portions is to use a smaller plate so that you can focus on portioning out your meal. <br>   Be picky about what’s on your plate. You don’t have to eat every side with every meal. Fill your plate with protein and vegetables first to ensure you’re filling up on nutrient-dense options that will help you stay fuller longer, then go for the sides that are more calorie-dense, like dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc. <br>   Have snacks on hand. You may have gotten used to that stuffed feeling, but now that you’re focusing on healthier options and portion control, you may get hungry sooner. This is why it’s a great idea to have snacks on hand to encourage positive decision-making versus going to the vending machine or being lured by the leftover candy in the break room. Keep some veggie sticks on hand to pair with Classic Hummus & Wheat Crackers, and look for pre-portioned snack bags like our Ranch Snaps and Cheddar Cheese Crisps that allow you to satisfy your snack craving without going overboard. <br>   Holiday weight loss is possible, especially when you have a strong sense of motivation. And if you’re looking for support and other pieces of advice for weight loss, look no further than Jenny Craig—our Perfect Portion blog considers everything from inspiration to strategies to help you find success, and you can join your local neighborhood Jenny Craig center to talk with a Jenny Craig consultant and create personalized strategies for weight loss throughout the year!      [SOURCES]   http://www.eatright.org/resource/health/lifestyle/holidays/enjoy-the-holiday-without-the-weight-gain   http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20974489,00.html#lose-1-pound-this-week-0
