CARLSBAD, Calif. (January 2, 2020) - Jenny Craig, a leader in the weight loss industry for more than 35 years, is being recognized for the tenth consecutive year as a top diet in several categories the U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Diet rankings. A nationally recognized publisher of consumer advice and rankings, U.S. News & World Report recognizes Jenny Craig as a Best Commercial Diet Plan (#2) and Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet (#3), in addition to high rankings in several other categories.

The rankings further validate the efficacy of Jenny Craig’s science-based, comprehensive weight loss approach, with the program designed to provide structure and support to help members lose weight and learn how to keep it off with the help of a dedicated, one-on-one consultant, and more than 100 delicious, chef-crafted menu items.

"To be recognized for a tenth year in a row as a top diet in several categories by the esteemed expert panel at U.S. News & World Report reinforces our science-backed approach to health and weight loss," said Monty Sharma, CEO and president of Jenny Craig. "We are constantly evolving to ensure our offerings keep up with the latest in nutrition science and are proud that our Rapid Results program, based on 2017 Nobel Prize-winning research on circadian rhythm, has helped us achieve a top ranking in the Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet category."

Jenny Craig is the first major commercial weight loss program to integrate following the body’s circadian rhythm into its program, Rapid Results, which was launched last year. Further demonstrating its commitment to a scientific approach to sustainable weight loss, Jenny Craig is creating a more personalized experience for its members with the national roll-out of the DNA Decoder Plan. With a DNA test, members can gain critical information about how their bodies process nutrients, which allows the company to customize meal plans to fit individual needs.

In addition to growing the brand’s customized program offerings, Jenny Craig is expanding their footprint nationally, deepening its commitment to connecting with members in ways that fit into their everyday lives – in person, online and at home. In early 2020, Jenny Craig and Walgreens will open 100 Jenny Craig at Walgreens locations nationwide in markets including Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia and Phoenix, among others.
