The Jenny Craig weight loss system started life in Australia in 1983 and founded in the US in 1985, it’s now under control of Nestle Nutrition. Jenny Craig weight loss centres can be found worldwide, but primarily in the United States, which offer personalised weight loss advice to individuals. If you need help in creating a diet plan, Jenny Craig will help you put one together, and have the meals delivered fresh to your local Jenny Craig centre, or to your home, for a fee.
What can you expect if you’re going to lose weight with Jenny Craig? When you go into a centre you will be confronted with advice on loads of things such as nutrition and physical activity to alter your lifestyle and eating habits. They will be able to come up with a plan to help you achieve your weight loss goals, and cope with a range of people – whether you’re male or female, old or young, or have medical conditions they will be able to design a plan for you.
The food part of the Jenny Craig weight loss plans sees you following a diet designed to meet the USDA Dietary Guidelines which focuses on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, reduced fat milk products and some other fats that are good for the heart. The meals also include lean meat, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts. Jenny Craig will put these meals together and deliver them to you, but once you have reduced your weight down to your desired level you can stop the meals and eat more what you want.
Regular consultations will help you form a more balanced weight habit and maintain your current physique. There is also a halfway point – this is the point when you are half way to your desired weight. At this point you only have to follow the diet for 3 or 4 days a week and eat other (sensible) food for the other half of the week.
Research has proved a very strong link between exercise and weight loss. The Jenny Craig activities are designed to find a balance between natural, playful and planned activities giving you a variety of things to do. This will make you more motivated overall to keep going with your routine.
The Jenny Craig weight loss programme has been endorsed by numerous organisations in countries around the world.
