Jenny Craig Launches 2019 Campaign Featuring Successful Members

New TV and Digital campaign celebrates success of real members

CARLSBAD, Calif. (December 20, 2018) – Jenny Craig, a leader in the weight loss industry, announced today their 2019 ad campaign, which focuses on actual Jenny Craig members and weight loss experts, and their stories of finding health and wellness on the program. Jenny Craig’s mission of helping real people find real results is harnessed in their new campaign, launching digitally and on TV this week. The campaign exclusively features members from across the country who have achieved their weight loss goals using the scientifically proven program.

Jenny Craig hosted a contest this year, which yielded more than 500 applicants, to find authentic stories from members to inspire others on their path to achieve better health. The contest winners were flown to Jenny Craig’s 2019 commercial shoot in Los Angeles for a week and took part in a professional photoshoot as well as received cash and prizes totaling up to $10,000 each. The contest winners shared their experience together and were celebrated for their achievements throughout the week.

The campaign— which includes television commercials, digital and social ads— is part of Jenny Craig’s continued focus around their most effective program ever, Rapid Results and highlights Jenny Craig’s chef-crafted, premium foods. Jenny Craig is the first national commercial weight loss company to integrate the concept of following the body’s circadian rhythm and other supporting research into their program, to help optimize metabolism and accelerate weight loss. This cutting-edge research won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Members who complete the Rapid Results program have been shown to lose up to 16 pounds in the first four weeks of the program. Average weight loss in the studies was 11.6 pounds for those who completed the 4-week program.

“We were gratified and moved by the stories of our successful members and hope those featured in our campaign, and our weight loss experts who provided critical support to them, will inspire others looking to start their weight loss journey in 2019,” said Monty Sharma, Jenny Craig CEO and president. “It was important for us to give our successful members the spotlight in this ad campaign, as their real experiences and real success on the program is powerful and relatable to many people.”

A leader in the weight loss industry for more than 35 years, Jenny Craig is proud to serve as a trusted partner for people hoping to achieve better health through weight loss. The science-based program offers personalized plans, a chef-crafted menu, and ongoing support and accountability through one-on-one consulting.
