Great for weight loss
Doing the Jenny program was hard to stick to and took me 2 years but I lost approx 20 kgs. Unfortunately trying to maintain the weight loss and soon falling back into past bad habits saw me put back the 20 and then some. The team at Ringwood were very supportive but the cost of doing the program and the effort of constantly watching my waistline became too hard and costly also I got sick of the same food I just couldn't palate any longer. Not enough variety and frequently enough. Got sick of pastas and rice dishes and too much pre packaged food.... Great for weight loss however I had to still work hard in the gym. Staff were wonderful, supportive and kind but I felt harassed when I could no longer continue the program due to not being able to afford $180 a week on the program plus then I also had to by groceries + milk, yoghurt,veg and fruit not supplied by Jenny Craig. So I was spending $280 a week for just one person on food and groceries and household items. Ok for first timers who want to lose maybe 10kgs but not a long term solution to managing weight loss unfortunately.
Ridicules prices for pies in the diet
I found with Jenny Craig there was way too much sugar in their meals. The girl seemed very rushed, quickly grabbing the food out of the freezer, and to put it in the box. Doesnt include all the meal yu have to add fruits dairy products vegtables and is more pies in there $169.Way too much money, compared to other companies. Lite and easy the best food and includes everything you dont have to spend extra!!
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).
It really works!!
I really love Jenny Craig. I had about 10 kilos to lose and have already lost almost 6 Kilos in 5 weeks!! As with any diet it takes a little bit of adjustment, however, knowing precisely when and what to eat really makes it easy. I like the food overall and a lot of the breakfasts and snacks I would buy if I wasn't dieting.
Shout out to the lovely Ladies at Robina Easy T Centre, especially my fabulous consultant Lorna, who is always really encouraging and very patient as I swap out any foods I'm not fond of.
This programme really does work if you are serious about losing weight. I highly recommend.
jenny Craig works for me!!
I have always struggled with my weight but since joining Jenny Craig I am getting great results... almost 10 kilos lost.....
The food is filling and I love the convenience of it all…… going to the supermarket is easier just go straight to veggies, salad and I am out!!!! So I am cruising along with good results and I couldn’t do this on my own so thank you to Jenny Craig......
Happy Customer- Good Results
Very excited for my transformation. The program changed my life for better. I have lost almost 20 kg and very happy with the results. The service was great and I’m happy to go back every time when I need to look different.
Horrible pricing and no snacks
No because most foods had to be cooked and snacks weren’t included it’s quite ridiculous how you can charge such an outrageous amount your food is great but prices are You have stated that the more people that complain about the price and the non included fruit and veg should make your company re think about your pricing or at least add snacks for your high prices how can light and easy cover all this but your company can’t and 22-23 dollars is ridiculous youfoods and other companies sell for 9-12 you really have to make some change you may just end up running out your business
The only plan for me!
I have to say I love Jenny Craig - it’s the only plan I know that if I stick to it it WILL work. I love all the food so I’m not concerned with meal swapping - I take it as it comes. I prefer to buy my own fruit and veg - have done another food delivery plan that included fruit and veg, and the only veg was frozen - incorporated in the meal, or a rock hard unripe tomato. The fruit was always a dry orange!
Why get rid of banana bread?
The banana bread was my favourite and I cannot understand why you would remove such a good product from your program.
Please bring it back. It was simple to prepare and very tasteful. The fruit loaf is no substitute.
Packed with preservatives
The food is so packed with preservatives that it caused me long term gut damage. Unfortunately I did not realise this until being on the program for months. Yes I lost weight but it was not worth the other health issues that came with eating JC food. There’s so many better weight loss programs out there I would not recommend Jenny Craig from personal experience.
It's not great
Always hungry. Expensive (approx $150-$160 wk). Portions are so small because you are expected to add vegetables to pad it out at your cost. Giving it up at my next appointment.
Usually OK but this time not at all impressed!
I was going to write about the "Bangers and Mash". I was very disappointed that they were taken from the menu and thrilled when they were returned. However, the 'Bangers and Mash" that have been returned to the menu are very disappointing - very thin sausages and hard at the ends as opposed to the thick, tasty sausages of the original.
This, however, pales into insignificance after I had tried to eat my "Banana Bread" this week. It was gritty!! How can that happen? What was in there to make this product - which is usually fine - gritty and inedible as a result. Not good enough, Jenny Craig, on both counts.
Working perfectly for me
I have been on the program at Chermside QLD for 16 weeks and have lost 14kg. I have never had success long-term before. I joined because I was at my wit's end and finally acknowledged that the one thing I hadn't tried was being accountable to someone every week. I know other companies do that, but I like that the staff at JC are respectful but make me accountable, and weigh-ins are done privately. The support is fantastic. The other wonderful thing is the wide variety of seriously yummy food they offer for vegetarians like me. My biggest i...ssue has been the commitment slipping over the Easter/Anzac Day/Mothers' Day weekends but I could identify the pattern and worked with my consultant to overcome this and move upwards and onwards. Yes I agree it is expensive but given that it works and that I will have ongoing support once I reach my goal, I see it as an investment in my long-term health. BTW I have also tried Lite & Easy, but without the accountability that was an expensive experiment with no lasting effects.
Too expensive for me
The staff are amazing, so respecful and helpful. Joined during a special, free consultation and $25 off food, Bill comes to $150 for food and this did not include any fruit, veges or milk. Went for 5 weeks and the 6th week was $167, not including fruit veges or milk. Had to leave there as I just couldn't justify the cost. Lost 5 kilos with Jenny but have lost another 7 on my own, with a weightloss app, was good motivation in the beginning but too much money, Food ok, some things really enjoyable.
Expensive and quality of food is poor.
I was determined to make a change when I joined Jenny Craig a year or so ago, so ignored the red flags. I lost weight over 6 months, however you pay approx $150 for the food, before you do grocery shopping for your fresh fruit and vegatables. The food delivered is not worth $150. You pay that for lite n easy and their food is of much higher quality and includes everything, but coffee, milk etc. The first week I got a lamb dish full of gelatious fat, I mentioned it to my consultant, who said, unless more people complain not much can be done. Fur...ther on in the programme, I recieved a week of free food from Jenny Craig (thanks) because I showed proof of all the gristle in the mince meat for one meal. The consultants are nice enough, but most are just going through the motions. Whilst I was on it I paid for a 5 year membership I will never use. What prompted me to write this after all this time though? I am sick of seeing Mel B endorsing this. There is NO way she would be eating this poor quality food! It is false advertising! Worst food I have eaten, makes me feel nauseated thinking about it.
An expensive quick fix
If relying on Jenny Craig food only it does not fill you up. It is the other foods e.g. veges. Yoghurt etc you have to buy in addition to J.C. food that fills you up.
I was able to follow program but very expensive and is not a long term solution to weight loss.
Horrible food and customer service
Jenny Craig in Cheltenham, I called them to reschedule my appointment as I couldn’t make it that morning and I asked if I could make it later the lady replied and said well you should have come at 930 like you scheduled.. she was disgustingly rude, the food is not healthy or fresh to much pasta also .. don’t waste your money on getting food their as the staff are rude and have no customer service skills and also to point one more problem they charge you different every week .. and try to push you to pay them a 200$ fee for life when all I wanted was 6 weeks so I could lose 5 kilos .. so unprofessional do not waste your money!!! Get lite and easy much better food !!
