I have been overweight my entire life. I have tried every diet and eating program known to man. Some worked pretty good and others were a total waste of time and money.
One program I tried for a month about a year or so ago was Jenny Craig. Jenny Craig provides clients with one-to-one counseling to discuss any food related issues you might have and to devise a “game plan.” In addition you have the opportunity to purchase Jenny Craig foods.
If you EVER get the chance to try Jenny Craig’s Turkey Burgers – do so! It’s been well over a year since I had one last and I am still in love with it. It as by far the best I have ever had. I wish I could just walk into Jenny Craig and stock up on them. Sadly, only Jenny Craig members can purchase Jenny Craig’s foods.
My time on Jenny Craig was a good one. I had a very positive experience. My favorite part was the food. The food was delicious!
Unlike other foods offered by weight loss plans, Jenny Craig’s food was not only delicious, it also tasted fresh. It didn’t taste like it was sitting in a freezer or on a shelf for months at a time. The food tasted like it was freshly made. That is one of the biggest things that stood out to me about the food – the freshness of it all.
Another thing I enjoyed about the food was the variety. Jenny Craig has a great variety including snacks and desserts.
Jenny Craig recently introduced new products, some of which I had the opportunity to try out for myself.
- Loaded Baked Potato
- Italian Style Pasta Bake
- Classic Waffles
- Chocolate Peppermint Cake (seasonal)
- Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich
- Pumpkin Loaf (seasonal)
- Pumpkin Spice Cakes (Seasonal)
- Homestyle Beef Pot Roast
- Classic Lasagna with Meat Sauce
- Turkey & Wild Rice
- Apple Crisp
- Chocolate Lava Cake
- Strawberry Yogurt Anytime Bar
I just had to try the Chocolate Lava Cake and Chocolate Peppermint Cake right away (not at the same time of course – but I was tempted). WOW! It’s hard to believe these desserts were part of a weight loss plan. They were amazing and didn’t taste like “diet food” at all. Diet foods tend to be bland or just plain gross. These desserts tasted like something you would be served at restaurant. They were that good!
I LOVED the Loaded Baked Potato. I could seriously eat baked potatoes every day of the week. They are one of my favorite foods. The Jenny Craig Loaded Baked Potato didn’t disappoint. It was SO GOOD!
I was equally impressed by the Turkey and Wild Rice meal. Frozen poultry can sometimes get chewy or hard. That was not the case with the turkey in this dish. It was still nice and juicy after I warmed it up in the microwave. I was also pleasantly surprised by how much meat was included. Sometimes frozen meals give you just a few bite size piece of meat. As you can see from the photo the Jenny Craig Turkey and Wild Rice dish gives you a decent amount of nice sized pieces of turkey.
Even the Homestyle Beef Pot Roast was filled with large chunks of beef, potatoes and more. Honestly, it’s better than the beef stew that I make for my family.
With the holiday season upon us, I know a lot of people are worried about gaining weight. I know that I am. I always worry about gaining weight due to the homemade cookies, cakes, large family meals and more. You can easily put on weight during the holidays.
So what happens when January 1st rolls around? You are probably worried about how you are going to lose the weight. Jenny Craig is certainly a great option.
Even better… why not consider joining Jenny Craig now – before the holiday season is in full swing. I know that it might seem like a crazy idea but it’s actually a great way NOT to pack on the pounds during the holidays. You’ll not only learn to eat right and exercise, you’ll also still be able to enjoy delicious foods. Instead of a handful of Christmas cookies you can enjoy Pumpkin Spice Cakes or a Chocolate Peppermint Cake instead. You’ll still get to enjoy a sweet (and delicious!) treat, but without the weight gain.
