The delivery diets we tried today!



Jenny Craig 
www.jennycraig.com 

Jenny Craig not only helps clients lose weight, but also learn strategies to maintain that weight loss.  In a recent two-year study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, Jenny Craig clients lost 10% of their body weight at the one-year mark, with minimal regain after two years.  In addition, Jenny Craig clients held a 92 percent retention rate, which we consider a testament to the ease and flexibility of the program.
 
The point of difference from other programs is our weekly, one-on-one personal consultation.  Our consultants are trained in the basics of nutrition, exercise and behavior modification, with a special emphasis on skills designed to enhance motivation, goal setting and problem solving for weight management success. 
 
Do you accommodate any special medical needs or food allergies or food intolerances?  If yes, please list.
 
The Jenny Craig Program can accommodate people with certain food intolerances, but cannot enroll people who have specific food allergies or have type 1 diabetes.  Various other medical conditions may require a doctor’s letter prior to enrollment.
 
Do you allow or expect clients to provide some of their own food?  If yes, what?
 
Jenny Craig is a lifestyle-change program, meaning we give each client a personal consultant to help them make the lifestyle changes required to lose weight and keep it off.  The food is a behavioral tool meant to serve as a model for proper portion control and a balanced meal.  As clients begin to lose weight and adopt healthy behaviors toward food, they are weaned off  the food and begin to eat meals on their own.  Our goal is to help clients eat in the real world based on what the Jenny Craig Program taught them.  Our program is education-based, not food-based.
 
What is the cost?
 
In addition to an advertised special that varies throughout the year and gives clients the opportunity to try our program for a limited time period, Jenny Craig At Home currently offers two premium programs for clients in Canada. Our Premium Success Program is $299 (plus the cost of food) and gives you $470 in savings over the course of your program.  Our new Metabolic Max Program is $449 (plus the cost of food) and gives you $600 in savings over the course of your program.  Both provide weight loss and maintenance support.
  
The cost of our Jenny’s Cuisine entrees and snacks ranges from $17 to $22 per day, depending on clients’ menu preferences, calorie intake and budgets.
 
Where do you deliver?
 
We serve all of North America, including all Canadian provinces.
 
How and when are meals delivered?
 
We conveniently ship the menus every two weeks to clients’ homes or offices via UPS or their affiliates in outlying areas. 
 
What are the preparation instructions for clients?
 
The beauty of our Jenny’s Cuisine entrees and snacks is that they’re delicious, model correct portions sizes, and are easy to prepare.  Microwave cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner items is typically five minutes or less, and the majority of our snacks go right from your pantry or freezer to your plate!
 
How do people order?
 
Clients who are interested in our Jenny Craig At Home Program can call 866/669-6366 and choose option 2 to be transferred to a Jenny Craig At Home Program Director.  He or she will share with you how the program works, answer your questions and get you started.

Clients can choose to have all their daily food requirements provided or can opt to prepare some of their own meals and snacks.  Beverages are not included with the regular daily meal programs and would be the only additional item clients would need to supply if they were on a full 3 meal/2snack a day program.  We can provide clients who wish to prepare their own breakfast and snacks with balanced energizing recipes.

Clients simply pick up the bag with their meals for the day in the morning. Empty bags are picked up on the next scheduled delivery night.
 
What are the preparation instructions for clients?
 
Meals are all ready to eat.  Hot meals (meals that require reheating) come in microwaveable/recyclable containers. Simply remove the lid and heat in the container, or place in an ovenproof dish and oven heat.
Our chefs expertly cook the meals to allow for additional cooking time when reheating. Chicken is always cooked to 100%.
 
How do people order?
 
Clients are set up with a password protected online account they can access at any time which provides them with a full menu for each day of service.  They can review or change their meal selections during their service period.

Clients without computer access can be accommodated through our customer service.
