Jenny Craig offers a dedicated personal consultant, who is there to support, guide, and encourage you along the way. Feel free to pm me if you have questions. Nutrisystem doesn't seem as costly yet it doesn't get as high marks for food. Try cutting out the sugary and processed foods. It depends on your lifestyle.
But I am a stress eater, and no diet out there can help me with that. I say try Jenny out. See if they have a special going on or a money back guarantee if you do not like it.
For me it is cheaper than eating on my own because I would eat out a lot. LoraJ , Apr 26, Mar 19, Messages: Nutrisystem is cheaper but the food is not good! ANd no matter what you order they send whatever they want. They say it was out of stock or whatnot, i think they use it as a means to get rid of the gross stuff. They kept saying send it back, and they will fix it, so I would pack it all up send it all back and then get another box of stuff I didnt want.
It was an awful pain in the you now what, and got stuck eating yucky stuff. You never get exactly what you request. ANd they never actually fix the order. Jenny Craig is incredibly expensive, but the food is much better. And no hassle with returning stuff. Both work if you stick to them. It was harder to stick to the one with gross food. Oct 14, Messages: I am on Jenny Craig. I find it no different than Weight Watchers as they teach you how to live a lifestyle. After the 1st 4 weeks you don't have to follow their menus and food.
Using their food helps you learn portion control because you can see how much a serving is You can do meals on your own I tried WW, but I am not good about planning my food out and measuring it and stuff This is the second time I am on it I was on it for 9 months last year and just started up again However, if you are not going to put in the time and learn what they teach you, then I agree it would not be a good choice because if you don't continue with the healthy choices and guidelines, you are going to put the weight back on As far as cost It can be costly, I choose to pay because of the convenience.
If you are good about measuring food and counting points, WW would do the same thing and be cheaper. JC food is very good. There are a few things I don't like, but that is because I am a very picky eater! Just my two cents! Aug 27, Messages: My friend lost about 20lbs on Jenny Craig. Honestly, I think counting calories and pumping up the excercising does just as good though!
Rora , Apr 26, I do Weight Watchers but I don't count points. I do the core or filling foods program which is what they call in now. I lost 60lbs all my baby weight and then some and have kept it off.
It is really easy to follow, no measuring and no counting other than snacks and stuff that isn't core. Hi Thanks for the information I find sparkspeople. I have a hard time navigating the website. Yes, eating good healthy food is the answer and that is why Weight Watchers is successful, however I need a stricter way of thinking right now so for my own reasons I am looking at JC, Nutrisystem or Ediets. Feb 13, Messages: One of my co-workers tried Nutrisystem and while she lost some weight, she hated it.
She was over lbs so she lost weight by watching what she ate, but she would always bring supplemental foods like chips and other junk food because she was starving all the time! Keeping the weight off can be very challenging; focus on portion control and activity. Feeling good and looking good are excellent motivations too. To understand the impact of participating in a food delivery diet, figure out your current daily food cost.
Include all coffee drinks, vending snacks, meals out and estimated actual cost of portions consumed at home. This will allow you to see how much of a change using pre-packaged food programs would have on your budget. Assessing which plan will work better for you is a personal decision. Nutrisystem has fewer out-of-pocket expenses due to less-expensive food and no membership fee. It would be a good fit for someone who is familiar with using a computer and prefers the autonomy and anonymity that computer discussions provide for support.
Jenny Craig is a little more expensive, but may be a better choice for people who want face-to-face accountability including weight checks and more hands-on support. Video of the Day. The Diet Center Diet Plan. How to Stop Nutrisystem. Lean Cuisine Vs Nutrisystem.
Losing Weight With Optifast. Nutrisystem provides home-delivered diet meals designed to help you lose weight, but Nutrisystem is not the only available diet delivery system.
