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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Not for the long run but worth a try.
Food was nice and tasty the first week although very little meat! After a week I felt a bit sick.
Preservatives outweighed the nutrition.
Under 15 grams of meat remained after straining sauce in a lunch menu (as example Subway serve 85g meat)
As a former chef, and a food scientist student, I Definitely can lose weight on this program because of the “Lack Of Food”; Not because the food is substantially healthy.
The egg ham muffin was floury substance in egg.
My consultant agreed that she too cannot stomach Jenny Craig food consumption.
Jenny Craig support and food
The food is very nice, some item are not to my taste.
They are filling with you having to use free foods like salads.
It's very easy, eat when they tell you and what they give you.
Easy to follow
Three weeks into the program i am finding it is easy to follow it given my busy lifestyle. The food is well prepared in terms of flavors and portions, helps satisfy most of my cravings. I am positive that I will not be giving up on it like most other diets i have tried.
Easy to stick to
Yes some of the foods are high in fats/carbs but it keeps me for eating the rubbish I used to, so I am losing weight, in a few weeks when I finish I will be able to get my own meals as I now have an idea of how easy it is to stick to my 1200 cals. a day. Thanks Jenny Craig.
Lack of consultant contact
Thought my consultant would be keeping in touch with me each week.. as I am doing deliveries and can only get to the centre once a month.. I am a new member so need a bit of help
Dont find excuses not to do it
I have been on Jenny Craig for 3 days now, I am already 1.5kgs down, I am not hungry, or, thinking about when I can eat next. It is achievable and manageable.
I started Jenny Craig as after having my baby and having developed a thyroid problem, I was stacking the weight on. I was not really concerned about how I looked with my size/weight (although I was 92.2kgs and overweight), but, I was concerned what my unhealthy weight and unhealthy eating habits were doing to my body and I knew I needed help to change my unhealthy relationship with food....Over eating, over indulging and binge eating junk food was not the lifestyle I wanted for me and my new little family. I tried other companies offering similar services as Jenny Craig, but, I was not satisfied and hungry all the time. I decided to give Jenny Craig a go and I am honestly annoyed I didnt do it sooner. I am not hungry throughout the day, I am satisfied and my cravings are non-existant. The food is tastey and convenient. Yes, there is some room for improvement with some of the menu items, as there is with many of these convenience style companies, but, it is still suprisingly satisfying which is what you need from a weight loss program. Every menu item is not going to be to everyones liking. A lot of people have said the food plans are expensive in addition to you having to buy your own fresh fruit/veg/salads. And yes, I also think it is expensive and not everyone can afford to do these types of programs which is a shame, but, I needed help to lose weight and this was the better program for me cost and product wise. I compared the cost of Jenny Craig to when I was on YouFoodz and found a the YouFoodz plans were more expensive in the long run. Plus With Jenny Craig I am actually getting to eat fresh fruits, salads and veg in addition to the food on the program, which I did not get with other programs. A positive about being able to buy your own veg/salads/fruits is that YOU get to pick the fruit/salads/veg YOU like (keeping within the program guidelines) and I like that the meals are not being bulked up with a tonne of carrots, peas, or sweet potato every single meal, which can become tiring very quickly. It allows you to change the meals up each day/week to suit your tastes. Plus their Facebook page and emails offer you inspiration on different ways to serve the meals with different spices, condiments or herbs (keeping in line with the guidelines).

Customer Care Consultant
I want to know if my lifetime membership is still honored. How should I proceed?
Sharon Fry Pasic email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
