There's a reason Jenny Craig works:
The art of healthy living with Jenny has hard science behind it. Designed by our own expert team of registered dietitians in consultation with our esteemed Medical Advisory Board, Jenny Craig is proven to work.
In a recent clinical trial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Jenny Craig participants who followed the In Center program:†
- Lost an average of 10.5% of initial weight at one year
- Experienced favorable changes in total/LDL cholesterol and leptin levels
- Increased plasma carotenoid levels due to increased intake of fruits and vegetables
- Improved cardiopulmonary fitness
Eat Well: A healthy relationship
With a calorie level designed for losing 1-2 pounds per week, or 1% of your weight, your personalized menu will reflect the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the Dietary Reference Intakes issued by the Institute of Medicine. Not to mention, it's incredibly delicious.
- 2 grams sodium
- 2 grams potassium
- 100-200 mg cholesterol
- 20-30 grams fiber
- 1,000 mg calcium
- 50-60% carbohydrate
- 20-30% protein
- 20-30% fat
Your menu is a combination of Jenny's Cuisine®, your own fresh fruits and vegetables, reduced-fat dairy and heart-healthy fats. We'll show you how a little balance goes a long way when you're trying to lose weight.
Jenny also encourages eating bigger portions with the Volumetrics® approach, which promotes feelings of fullness and allows you to get the same calories and nutrition as less-filling meals.
Move More: It's your move
Activity is a key component to weight loss success. Jenny's staged approach to physical activity is intended to get you to move more through daily activity, recreational activity and planned activity as part of your program. We'll help you gradually get to a goal of 30 minutes or more of moderate activity at least five days a week. Your personal activity plan will be based on your comfort level, lifestyle and goals. Jenny makes it doable, not daunting. Don't worry, we'll help get you there!
Live Life: Fueling your motivation
Personal support is a key element to weight loss success, but one that many programs overlook. Jenny's one-on-one support is designed to strengthen self-monitoring, goal-setting, problem-solving and coping skills. And we all need those to reach our end goal of a healthy weight.
When you join Jenny, you'll visit your center or schedule a phone consultation with Jenny Craig Anywhere each week. With your own personal consultant, you get an education that focuses on the three success factors for healthy weight management: Food, Body and Mind.
