CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 3, 2018)Jenny Craig, a leader in the weight loss industry for more than 35 years, was recognized for the Ninth consecutive year straight as a top diet in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Diet rankings. A nationally recognized publisher of consumer advice and rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked Jenny Craig as a Best Commercial Diet Plan (#2) and Best Weight-Loss Diet (#3), in addition to high rankings in multiple other categories.

“We are proud to be recognized as one of the best weight loss programs for the ninth consecutive year by the reputable panel at U.S. News & World Report,” said Monty Sharma, CEO and President of Jenny Craig. “At a time when millions of Americans are struggling with weight loss at unprecedented levels, we pride ourselves on developing science-backed programs that help individuals achieve real results on their journey to better health.
