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.
Expensive for what you actually get
I did Jenny Craig for not even a week before I thought “what a rip off!” For the money I’m paying can’t they even spring for a proper ready to heat pumpkin soup rather than a sachet cuppa soup. They call that providing a meal when I had to supply my own salad and piece of toast to go with it. I’m not into cooking so I just want it done for me. My consultant said it didn’t have to be complicated, just eat a cucumber. A whole cucumber!!! If I had the discipline and taste buds to just munch on a cucumber I wouldn’t have gotten into this mess in th...e first place!!! I like a few slices of cucumber in a salad but not a whole cucumber!!! I thought that was the most ridiculous suggestion. Lite and Easy is definitely the better, cheaper option and they provide every morsel that goes into your mouth so you don’t have to pay out extra money for fruit, salad, veggies, breads, dairy. It’s all there ready to eat, no preparation necessary. The only thing that I can’t stomach with Lite and Easy is the amount of packaging. It’s a lot of plastic so if you can get past that wastage you should be good to go. I’m only posting this review in hopes that Jenny Craig read it and pick up their game with some of the Sub standard menu items.
Expensive and Misleading
Joined Jenny craig about a month ago and have lost weight so thumbs up for that BUT when i joined i was advised the "FREE 8 week membership" was not free as there was no discount applied so to become a member was financially more viable as i got a 10% discount on food (MISLEADING !!) I did bec ome a member and was quite happy but as soon as I short ordered (because i had not eaten a day's food as i was on holidays) i lost the 10% discount MISLEADING AGAIN !! apparently the 10% discount only applies if you order the complete package every day an...d do not miss anything. MISLEADING AGAIN. i would have been better off with the 8 week membership. VERY EXPENSIVE considering i still have to provide all dairy, fruit, vegetables etc. Also feel like i was rushed through the meeting with my consultant - never took more than 5 minutes.
Extremely disappointed felt ripped off
I joined Jenny Craig Chatswood with a friend about 2 years ago. My friend knew the lady at Chatswood there at the time and convinced us to join which we both did. I did not feel this person was in my friends best interest however I was their to support my friend to lose a little weight and joined.
Both going from a healthy mediterranean diet to a very expensive highly processed frozen foods and pastries not to mention the high salt.. I was blown away.? We ended up throwing out all the food in the bin.
I keep seeing all these people praising t...
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!!
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
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.
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 $150. You pay that for lite n easy and their food is of much higher quality and includes everything, but coffee, milk etc. The first week I got a lamb dish full of gelatious fat, I mentioned it to my consultant, who said, unless more people complain not much can be done. Fur...ther on in the programme, I recieved a week of free food from Jenny Craig (thanks) because I showed proof of all the gristle in the mince meat for one meal. The consultants are nice enough, but most are just going through the motions. Whilst I was on it I paid for a 5 year membership I will never use. What prompted me to write this after all this time though? I am sick of seeing Mel B endorsing this. There is NO way she would be eating this poor quality food! It is false advertising! Worst food I have eaten, makes me feel nauseated thinking about it.
Horrible food and customer service
Jenny Craig in Cheltenham, I called them to reschedule my appointment as I couldn’t make it that morning and I asked if I could make it later the lady replied and said well you should have come at 930 like you scheduled.. she was disgustingly rude, the food is not healthy or fresh to much pasta also .. don’t waste your money on getting food their as the staff are rude and have no customer service skills and also to point one more problem they charge you different every week .. and try to push you to pay them a 200$ 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 !!
