New moms, by definition, have a lot on their proverbial plates—and the to-do list almost always includes “start losing the baby weight.” Over the years, our consultants have fielded countless questions about when and how to start this particular kind of weight loss journey. The good news is, Jenny Craig can help you with postpartum weight loss…as well as a few other things you might not even expect!
When to join
As a new mom, you are welcome to join or rejoin Jenny Craig once your baby is six weeks old. If you’re breastfeeding, your milk supply will be established by this time, so this is a perfectly safe, acceptable time to start slimming down. Of course, you’ll need more calories to feed your little one, so your consultant will help you set an appropriate calorie level based upon your whether or not you’ve decided to breastfeed your baby.
Easy, tasty, healthy food
The Jenny Craig program was designed to take the guesswork (and the hassle) out of weight loss. But as it turns out, many of our new-mom clients have discovered that our easy, tasty, healthy food is a life-saver during those sleep-deprived early months. Your consultant will help you create a menu and teach you how to supplement it with fresh produce. When it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself, Jenny Craig makes it so easy.
Get into the routine
Many of our new-mom clients have noticed yet another benefit of joining Jenny Craig: the establishment of a routine. During the early months, the baby’s feeding and sleeping schedule can take over your life—and to some extent, it should. But it’s also helpful to know what YOU are eating, and when.
How can something so small change your life so completely? Trust us: it can. But by entrusting Jenny Craig with your weight loss journey, you’re taking control of your weight… and your health, too. Not only will it feel great to get out of those maternity clothes, you should also feel good about giving your body the nutrition it needs to stay active and energetic—two words that will soon describe your bundle of joy.
