Jenny Craig Diet - Is it Really the Best?

I have been through a lot of diets, exercise machines, fitness centers, work out plans and fat loss or weight loss programs. You name it; I probably would have tried it already. One of the many diet plans I have tried is the Jenny Craig Diet.

I am writing not out of bitterness that the Jenny Craig Diet did not work me, it’s just that I feel that it is best for people to know what they are about to go through before they start anything else through the eyes of someone who did the same thing before.

There was a relatively near Jenny Craig Diet center near my home so I went there for my very first meeting back in 2003. The personal coach that was there or sales associate or whatever she was called told me that I was lucky because they just has had a “program sale” that was up just for a limited offer. I was to lose 20 for only $20 (and in a softer tone that was trailing plus the food price) in the span of 3 months.

Since it was only for $20 bucks, I pulled out my wallet and gave her the only $20 dollar bill in my wallet, leaving me with $10 for gas on my way home. Then she weighed me in. She told me how much calories I can take in then gave me some pointers on some exercises that may be beneficial but they really did not push for that.

What the personal coach was really pushing for was for me to buy some of their prepackaged food items that will ensure that I stay within the number of calories that I can take in daily (which was 1200 for me). She was a tad bit pushy (this may just be my experience as some personal coaches may be better) and in the end, my credit card was swiped and I bought a week’s worth of food from her.

And the total price of one week’s food? Are you sitting down ‘coz I am about to say it.

One hundred American dollars!

I am not kidding you. For a one week supply for my Jenny Craig Diet, I left the center $120 poorer and a wanton ego saying I am such a sissy for pushy sales people.

The food is not that bad although the meal beef in mashed potatoes was my least favorite. And thing is, the helpings were so small its like they were made specially for little people with very little appetite.

Bottom line is, after 2 months, I lost a measly 8 pounds and my credit card bill was up to $1000 in unpaid past dues. I lasted to 2 moths because I wanted to prove to myself that I can make the Jenny Craig Diet work only to realize that the plan was working me.

The only plan that truly and really worked for me is the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program that made me lose weight faster by losing a whopping “11 pounds in 9 days”. All for the price of less than $100.
