No More Excuses: It's Time to Lose Weight

Many of our most successful clients tell us that they spent years struggling with their weight before finally finding success with Jenny Craig. We get it! Any kind of change can be challenging, and it’s easy to find reasons not to join a structured weight loss program. Here are four of the most common excuses that prevent weight loss motivation—along with some compelling responses that just might change your mind.
1. I don’t have the time.
If you have time to eat, you have time to eat healthy; joining the Jenny Craig program won’t add more than a few extra minutes to your mealtimes. Thanks to our pre-planned menus and perfectly portioned meals, there’s no counting…no guesswork…no hassles. Your weekly meeting with your personal consultant can be held in person or over the phone; you can even use part of that time to plan your meals for the following week!
2. I won’t like the food.
This may be true of other programs, but we don’t have that problem at Jenny Craig. We LOVE food—and we believe it should love us back. So we’ve taken the guesswork out of weight loss with 80+ breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks that are ultra-delicious AND nutritionally balanced. It’s a win-win: the foods you love, in foolproof portions you can enjoy at home, at work or on the go. Whether you’re craving hearty home-style goodness or flavorful world cuisine, Jenny’s Craig has got you covered.
3. It won’t really work.
At Jenny Craig, we know that a weight loss program can only be effective when it’s backed by real science and supported by real people—so that’s exactly how we’ve done things for the past 30+ years. Studies show that people on Jenny Craig lose 3x more weight that those dieting on their own.* And our clients’ amazing success stories speak for themselves! Our clients lose an average of 1–2 pounds per week,** all while eating delicious food. Macaroni & Cheese? Yes, please.
4. I’ll just gain it all back.
Yes, our pre-packaged meals are delicious and ultra-easy, but what happens when you’ve reached your goal and it’s time to start cooking for yourself? At Jenny Craig, we don’t believe weight loss is a temporary deal. That’s why we work so hard to give you the tools you need to truly embrace a healthier lifestyle. Throughout your weight loss journey, you’ll gradually be learning how to build a healthy meal from the ground up, with smart portions and the right balance of fat, carbs and protein. You’ll also have access to our healthy food recipes, which include delicious meals, snacks and desserts that meet our standards.
