Due to trying out the Special K diet a couple of weeks ago, and it didn’t shift a single pound, I have been searching for something new. I have heard a lot about the Jenny Craig diet, which is where you can get your diet meals delivered to your home. I decided to contact them and they agreed that I could try a 2 week trial to review on my blog. I am intending to start the diet next Wednesday! Wish me luck 🙂
So this blog post is just a brief overview of what the diet is all about, and what I received in my 2 week pack. Jenny Craig is a weight loss expert, and her company is designed to help people lose weight healthily. The diet plan doesn’t just deliver your meals, it also guides, supports and motivates you to help you reach your goal. You will be given a dedicated coach consultatant who will discuss with you weekly your progress. You will also be given a support kit, which includes: a ‘Getting Started’ manual and ring binder, weekly menu plans, a Lifestyle Graph to track your weight loss, and a measuring cup and grocery shopping guide.
What appealed to me most about the Jenny Craig diet is that I can hopefully lose weight without giving up the foods I love, like pasta bolognese, chicken curry and chilli con carne, and the portion sizes are generous but healthy. When my box of food arrived I was pleasantly surprised to see chicken chasseur with potatos, red wine pasta and beef casserole all on the dinner menus. Theres even a beef lasagna or roast chicken and mash! For lunch, there is the option of noodles, couscous or soups. Or there’s pasta salad too. Breakfasts consist of porridge, coated wheat flakes or muesli. And snacks are different flavoured cereal bars, or potato bites. Yum!
The support kit manual is very useful, and it includes lots of hint and tips on ways to lose weight, and curb your cravings. It also helps to discover why it is you want to lose weight, and what your problem areas are. I think I could definitely class myself as an unconscious eater, not realising what I’m eating, missing meals and generally having no plan or routine in my eating habits.
The Jenny Craig diet costs £11 per day, which is very reasonable considering it supplies all your meals and snacks throughout each day. Theres currently a trial offer on at the moment to get it half price, so why don’t you try it today? I can’t wait to start the diet next week and to see how it works for me. The food looks delicous!
