The Good

  • Customization
  • Coach
  • Taste

Because Jenny Craig sells individual meals instead of pre-planned meals, dieters have complete control of what they eat. The customization is great with Jenny Craig. And if you aren't sure what to choose, your personal health coach can help you plan out your meals. When members sign up for Jenny Craig, they automatically get a coach to help choose foods, exercise programs, and glean encouragement.

Jenny Craig was voted one of the best-tasting meal plans out there.

The Bad

  • Membership fee
  • Expensive

Unlike other meal plan diets, Jenny Craig dieters have to pay a monthly and yearly membership fee. While there are many benefits to becoming a member of Jenny Craig, the program can become very expensive, especially if you have a lot of weight to lose.

The Bottom Line

Thousands of men and women have used Jenny Craig's great tasting diet meal plan to lose weight. Jenny Craig meals fall in an average cost range for meal plans. But, yo have to remember to tack on the enrollment fee and the monthly fees. Overall, a good program for those looking to steadily lose weight.

this was one of the 1st meal plans i tried when i was attempting to lose weight to be completely honest it does work but not as well as you would like it to or that they advertise it took me couple weeks before i lost a pound and that was yes without me taking short cuts or going off the meal plan
