This successful diet concentrates on Food, Body and Mind.
When you join the Jenny Craig programme you are allocated a personal coach, and a personal diet plan is tailored to your lifestyle.
The diet involves using Jenny Craig portion controlled ready prepared meals and snacks, which are delivered to your home. There is also help and advice with getting more active and exercising regularly. You will have weekly contact with your personal coach to help with food advice and motivation.
Singer Mariah Carey was reportedly another result for the Jenny Craig diet. She successfully lost the 30 pounds of weight she gained during her pregnancy by following the Jenny Craig weight-loss programme. Her favourite diet food was the soup.
Once you join the Jenny Craig programme a personal Weight Management Coach will create a plan tailored to your needs and lifestyle. You will learn portion control and nutritional balance, and receive advice on increasing your activity.
You can choose to eat Jenny Craig meals and one snack each day – you can add certain fresh fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products to supplement these meals.
The Jenny Craig food is home delivered, which saves you worrying about shopping and preparing a nutritious and healthy meal every day that is also calorie controlled.
There are weekly calls with your coach to help you boost your motivation, gain tips and diet advice.
