It works, but is not sustainable
What is attractive with Jenny Craig is that you are given portions of food so you don’t have the hard work of counting calories - and you have accountability with your Coach. Also, the portioning also help you to learn what a correct amount of food is. But that’s where the benefits end. The frozen and pre packaged food is generally unhealthy and highly processed. It’s probably an improvement for some people but prior to starting Jenny Craig, my diet was extremely healthy (I just ate too much!) so it makes me feel bad that I’m not treating my bo...dy better by ingesting so many additives and over processed foods. Also, they provide no options for dairy intolerant or vegan, which is pretty behind the times. I don’t know if they do gluten free but I’d be surprised. Finally, the packaging is awful environmentally! I’m recycling everything but it’s over the top!
I must admit, I did feel a little shame walking into Jenny Craig for the first time......My consultant soon put me at ease & was honest and straight to the point.
The program itself has reintroduced me to fresh fruit, vegetables and given me a great routine to stick with that makes you not only feel fantastic but keeps you full throughout the day on great wholesome food!
I was warned of the price, but after I added up my coffees and take away good ol Jenny was considered cheap and you can’t put a price on your own health and well-being right?
Would highly recommend!
VERY EASY TO ORDER
The thing that I really like is that I can go to the office and order my meals and take them ,,No drama ..Just i hope u make the price mire affordable
Great programme and delicious food
I’m vegetarian and I think the foods are fantastic. You add fruit vegetables and dairy around it and so you end up eating quite healthy. It’s good quality processed meals that actually freezer and defrost very well. They are kind as well. You’re hungry as hell in the first week of course and I basically don’t stick to the are calorie limits but it’s been a really good programme so far
Great for the busy person who urgently need help.
I have been a life member of Jenny since the 80’s and have returned for the 4th time at age 61. I find it’s the only diet that I lose a substantial amount of weight. I like the visual picture it gives me of how much food we should actually be having each day. When you reach your goal weight it’s firmly fixed in your mind for the future.
As to cost, if you’re sticking strictly to it it’s not expensive at all. I’m spending less on food shopping now.
For the older person
I am 67 and 12 kilos over weight from a diet of lots of junk food. The great food is yummy and easy which suits me not having to do too much preparation etc. I still have lots of time to do other things. Home delivery works well. All in all am happy to be eating healthier and the weight is dropping easily. Its setting me up to be healthy as I gracefully grow older !
So expensive compared to other options & food quality is terrible :(
Liteneasy is so much better priced & better quality. The call I had was someone reading a script. Food is frozen & you still have to buy veg, fruit, bread, yoghurt & milk.
Full of crap
The weekly menu cost for Jenny Craig meals (3 meals and 1 snack) is $194 per week. That comes out to $28 per day for one person.
Breaking the food cost down monthly, it would cost $776 per month, just for the prepared Jenny Craig meals/snacks. Remember, this doesn’t include the cost of fresh fruits, veggies, and whole grains. If you want to add any more meat to your plan, there’s that extra cost as well.
If you purchase the six-month program, it would cost you around $4,755 for the program for 24 weeks. This includes the membership plus the J...enny Craig prepackaged food for the first half of your membership.This doesn’t include the fresh fruit, vegetables, and dairy that you must include in your diet and assumes that you’ll wean off the Jenny Craig prepared meals after 12 weeks. Jenny Craig you are a waste of money and I could do better than you, it is alot cheaper to buy fresh food and not your processed crud.
Jenny Craig is Amazing!
Easy to follow with a menu set out designed for success.
The food tastes AMAZING. It's nice to be able to look at the menu and have food that is delicious and good for me.
In 16 weeks I've lost 13.5kg and feel fantastic!
Works for me
My mum bought me lifetime membership in 1987, i was 16.
She must have known I'd be yo yo er.
I've been back 4 times and each time I've lost the weight I needed. I like the structure it provides and when going inside the stores the support I need.
The quality of the food has been worse this time around feels cheap and doing it online the councillor stopped checking in on me. But it's been 7 weeks since I started and I've lost 17kg, so it works.
In the past I've tried weight watchers, a few of the shake diets, CSRIO, all sorts of prescription m...edications and most recently keto, they all work to a point. But nothing gives me the simplicity of jenny Craig. Buying the food in two week batches gives me free delivery and with 10% membership discount my food costs around $160 a week for 1800 calorie menu. Which when compared to others is the cheapest out there.
Always hit my goal weight
I love the food. no real cooking needed, which is great because i hate cooking. This is the 3rd time over 20yrs that i have been on jenny craig. I have tried other diets and paid lots of $$$$ but never had the same results. The last 2 times i reached my goal no problem. This time around ive been on the program for almost 2 weeks and lost over 2kgs in the 1st week and thats without exercising! I haven't done a second weigh yet but i can feel ive lost more weight.
I am only on week 5 (due to weigh in on Tue) and have had amazing results without any exercise I might add
Week 1 = 1.6kg
Week 2 = 1.8kg
Week 3 = 1kg
Week 4 = 800g (I was on my period)
Total = 5.2kg and 30cm over all
The program fits my lifestyle perfectly, as I alway run out of time to have my breakfast and sort my lunch on the days I work so having those meals already to go for me has made a huge difference all I have to do is chop up a salad to go with my lunch I also chop up extra salad to go with mine and the kids dinner at night
Greedy Jenny Craig
I have been on the program previously and lost over 30kg and kept it off for several years. Only put it back on due to emotional reasons. I am now on the program again, and it is working, however, due to COVID we are having the food delivered. As of the next delivery, they are charging for delivery! This is disgraceful. We have no choice but to have food delivered and we pay premium prices for the food whilst still needing to purchase our own fruit, veg, bread and dairy. This makes it a very expensive program, so to charge us for delivery is OUTRAGEOUS. I am rethinking my position regarding this service.
Weight control out of control!
Easy to do, I know exactly what I’m eating and have better eating habits to go forward. I don’t crave sugars or carbs at all now and am never hungry, which was a problem. Great, thank you Jenny Craig
I found in week one I was obsessing about the food - when could I eat next, what could I eat and did feel a bit hungry on occassions - but did lose 2.5kg in week one. Now just finishing week 2 and not so obsessed this week and still enjoying the food and lost another 1.1kg. So with 2 weeks under my belt and 3.6kg down - this is the best decision I have made in a long time when it comes to food. There has only been 1 meal that I haven't really enjoyed, but the rest have been fine. I have a long journey ahead, but feel now starting my 3rd wee...k, I am finally on the right track. Anyone thinking about doing it - I would say, give it a go. It isnt cheap, but it will be worth it for me to get back into a happy place with my weight. And being able to have the food delivered and remote coaching works with my lifestyle.

Customer Care Consultant
I want to know if my lifetime membership is still honored. How should I proceed?
Sharon Fry Pasic firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Sharon, we have replied to you via email - please let us know if you need anything else!
Just contacted your customer service to verify my Lifetime membership I bought for myself and my mother in 2004. He stated, JC stopped selling lifetime memberships in 2002, therefore I could not be a lifetime member. Also stated the computers have since been updated and not everything has been updated and that his “Supervisor” was going by the year I purchased the Lifetime membership, not what was noted, as nothing was noted on my profile. Please explain?
We would be happy to look into this again for you to double-check your membership verification. Please feel free to email email@example.com with your full name, the centre that you joined the program with, and the approximate year, as well as the centre that you last attended with the approximate year. Thank you
