Nutrisystem Vs Jenny Craig Reviews – Cost, Taste and Other Factors Compared
I'm going back again today and the consultants gave me a quick call and just asked how I am. Not only do I not like to cook, I just don't have the time to cook. It looked so good, so I decided to have the NS chocolate chip cookie for my dessert and it was very satisfying. Thank you for recommending Jenny Craig! My very first interaction with Jenny Craig was quite emotional for me way back in the day because I was very upset. The consultants have all been wonderful.

Diet Plan Review: Best Ways to Lose Weight

I feel healthier than I have felt in a long time. I love the results I am seeing. I feel much more confident about myself. Nutrisystem is hassle free. The biggest thing I have to worry about with Nutrisystem is which delicious food I feel like eating for dinner tonight. Building Good Habits 4 out of 5 stars. I think Nutrisystem builds good habits - portion control and good website for good support.

I lost almost 40 lbs since April it's now December with absolutely no exercise. I finally quit my gym membership after 4 months. They were quite supportive and worked with me the whole time.

I'll return to Nutrisystem if the weight returns, but so far so good, and it's holiday overeating time! Next time I go veggie 4 out of 5 stars. I tried Nutri System almost two years ago and lost 22 pounds pretty quickly. If I need it again, I'll try the vegetarian meals as I hear they're just as tasty and easy to prepare as the Basic Plan. I gave the Basic Plan 4 stars because one shipment of food I received was missing two snack bars. Be sure to count your food when you get it to ensure everything is there.

Easy As Pie 5 out of 5 stars. I just started Nutrisystem about a week ago and I absolutely love it! I am a very picky eater, so I thought the food was going to be questionable, but it is surprisingly good. I really like that I don't need to count calories or spend a lot of time preparing meals. I have been pretty good about completing the daily logs online exercise, meals, water, etc.

They help me keep on track. One of the things I think is absolutely great about Nutrisystem is the literature they provide with your 1st order. I received a restaurant guide used it twice already and a menu book that includes approved foods you can use to supplement your menu at the grocery store. I am doing the 5 day flex plan, but am contemplating upgrading to the full 7-day program as it really is a no brainer and I am concerned about having the liberty to choose my own meals on the weekends that has proven to be very dangerous!

The program is really simple to follow and my carb, sugar and salt cravings are gone. Today my wife came home with a cookie for my son she bought at Starbucks. It looked so good, so I decided to have the NS chocolate chip cookie for my dessert and it was very satisfying. I love this program! I have been on Nutrisystem for 6 months and I have lost just over 35 lbs. I also joined a local gym and have a personal trainer which of course helps.

My goal is to look as good as the day I graduated from High School when I go to my 50th class reunion in By the way, I already think I look better than the day I graduated! I know, wishful thinking, right? I've been on it for over a year and only lost 45 pounds. My support group keeps telling me to stick with it longer, claiming that if you stick with the plan you will lose all the weight you want.

I've read on the NS support forums that 45 pounds is great, but I had hoped that I would have lost pounds by now. Maybe I'll need to start exercising after all. When I started the program I did not know if I would stick with it.

Diets can be hard to stick with sometimes. However, the Nutrisystem plan is not hard to stick with. The plan is laid out so simply that anyone can follow it.

The Nutrisystem plan comes with a money back guarantee. If a person joins the program and does not like it he can receive his money back. The plan is so easy to follow. I have lost 22 pounds on the program while eating things like chocolate cake. Unlike Medifast, the food is delicious.

If you are thinking of trying the plan but are afraid that you will not like the food please stop worrying. The Nutrisystem plan comes with a great menu with foods on the menu that are very delicious. I have lost 32 pounds and finally feel like I may make my goal of losing I wasn't thrilled with the food when I started, but now that I can choose the foods that I really like it is much better.

I love the pizzas loaded with red pepper or onions and pineapple. We've had out of town company and been to many family gatherings, where I used to overeat. I find that when I have my own food that I like and because I am rarely hunger now, that the temptation to cheat is just not there. I also love most of the desserts, but who doesn't: Five years ago I lost 62 lbs on NS, but over the years I gained back 38 lbs. Now I am back on the system and intend to stay until I reach my goal weight.

My co-worker is using Jenny Craig but it was just to cost prohibitive for me. I've tried her meals and honestly didn't think they were as tasty as Nutrisystems are. Just 65 Pounds Left To Go 4 out of 5 stars.

I am on my 10th day on Nutrisystem and I absolutely love it! The food is great and a lot better tasting than Jenny Craig. I have lost 8 pounds so far and am really excited. I have 65 more to go to reach my goal weight. The website is full of good information and tons of motivation which I need and love!! Anyone can do this diet. At 32 years old, I had surpassed pounds and went on a diet with Slimfast Shakes and low fat dinners that I made. I was single at the time and had the time to prepare my own meals and exercise vigorously for about an hour 5 days a week.

Needless to say, I did lose 40 lbs in 3 months, but it was hard work and I was always hungry. I'm now 40 years old now and after several failed starts I decided to give Nutrisystem a go.

Being married with 2 children, my time is much more limited now. Nutrisystem is perfect for this reason as I don't have to count calories — it's all done online for me. The meals are reasonably good and you can pretty much choose the meals you want. The first month I went with the default menu and selected the meals I liked best for the second and third month.

I'm following the menu strictly and my caloric intake is around calories a day. All in all, I have been on the diet for 42 days and I have lost 23 lbs and 3 inches off my waist! This program is well worth it! I needed to go on a diet. I had gained 25 pounds over the last year and I could not fit into any of my clothes. I did not want to go buy a whole new wardrobe when I already had a perfectly good one. With Nutrisystem I have access to a website that allows me to track my weight loss progress.

I enjoy logging onto the website and seeing how far I have come. I also get support from the website. I enjoy almost all of the foods Nutrisystem has to offer.

They all taste pretty good. The best part of Nutrisystem is that I have lost weight with a program that is extremely easy to follow. I liked many aspects of the diet; however, I thought the food portions were too small.

Maybe I'm too used to supersizing everything? The Nutrisystem plan does work though. When I was using the plan I lost about fifteen pounds. The plan was also very easy to follow. I did not have to weigh out food.

I did not have to count calories. I did not have to figure out which foods to eat to lose weight. I just had to follow the instructions that came with the plan and eat the food that the plan provided me with. When I joined the Nutrisystem plan I also received 24 hour access to the Nutrisystem web site where I could chat with someone for support daily if I needed to.

Haven't used it, but its nice to know its there for me. The food was just as tasty as pre-cooked frozen meals you buy in the grocery store.

I enjoyed many of the foods that Nutrisystem offers. The desserts and snacks were delicious. The dinners are done very nicely with foods that are very tasteful and full of flavor. The breakfasts were good I especially liked the pancakes. The lunches were also good. The thing I did not like about Nutrisystem was that the portions of foods they provided were too small. The program is extremely easy to use. Any man can join the program and expect to lose weight easily.

I joined the plan and Nutrisystem sent me dieting tools, instructions on how to use the plan and great tasting foods. I also have access to Nutrisystems website. The website includes chat rooms, blogs, and group discussions about dieting.

I feel better, I sleep better, more energy. I have done Nutrisystem and the food was horrible. I give Jenny 2 up. I was off to a good start but encountered a problem with the amount being charged for 7 days of food vs 3. Had to do with weigh in day and food purchase date being different. I was charged extra for 3 days not knowing about the discount for 7 days of food purchased. I asked for this to be made right and have heard nothing. Plenty of other options and obviously better customer care.

We're glad you were able to connect with our Market Director today. We're happy to hear she was able to resolve your concerns. I have been on the program for 3 weeks and have only lost 4 pounds and have been very hungry most of the time. Whenever I go for my weigh in, my counselor seems very busy and rushed, even though I am the only person there.

When I was there last, I was very discouraged and my counselor knew that, and she did not offer any encouragement. I also found out that measurements should have been taken on the first visit which should have lasted approximately 40 minutes.

One of the reasons I pay a lot of money for this program, is the personal touch from the counselors. That did not happen. I have talked to the center about it and hope my further visits will be more empowering. Will keep everyone posted. We're sorry to hear about your experience. Thank you for taking the time to share this with us. We're going to look into your account and have a Manager contact you.

I tried the Turbo Boost program with some success. I took a break as I wasn't enjoying eating what felt like airplane food for a month. After a couple of months, I tried to buy more food and had nothing but difficulty. After speaking to multiple people I was told because I was already on the program only my counselor could send me more food. She never contacted me back.

Oh well, good thing there are other programs out there. Turbo Boost is not a program that Jenny Craig offers. We believe you may have us confused with another company. We also could not find an active or recent account for you. We're happy to help you get started on the Jenny Craig Program and answer any questions you may have. Give us a call at I had minimum success with JC for 8 weeks 13 pounds and was following the program diligently.

I have since switched to a different weight loss program. This needs to be canceled ASAP. Our Customer Service team will be happy to speak with you regarding your request.

Per your service agreement you are able to cancel at anytime; the reason your account has not been cancelled is because we did not receive a request to cancel it. We will forward this team member who will reach out to you. I've talked on the phone with them and was supposed to get a text and email. I went to talk to them in the center. I told them I'm not sure I can afford it so never got to talk to anybody. The lady at the desk told me to go to Weight Watchers.

I went back online. Talked to a salesperson and he said he call me to talk in over and talk to a counselor, well he stopped chat and didn't call me back. They didn't even give me a chance to see if they could come up with a program I can afford. We'd like to have a Manager reach out to you first thing in the morning.

Thank you for taking the time to report this to us so we can address this right away. For more information about reviews on ConsumerAffairs. I used Jenny Craig several years ago. I got my lost weight goal the first time around and I maintained it for a long time.

However, I went off track and recently I decided to go back to their program. It's convenient since everything is pre-planned for me. I've done both the one where you call them and they ship your food to you and the in-person consultation. I like the latter better, even though the phone call was a lot more convenient.

It's a lot more personal and the people are trained better than the ones on the phone. Furthermore, I get bored with stuff in the food plan after a while. Also, I haven't been happy about the packaging of the food. They're quite costly for what you get. I understand that you're getting the consultant and the personalization, but the quality of the packaging is cheap! It needs to be updated. Even Weight Watchers has far superior packaging. I'm fighting this cardboard, plastic, and stuff for something that costs double of what I would pay for a Smart One or a Weight Watchers meal of comparable size.

Nevertheless, Jenny Craig is great at teaching you how to maintain your weight. I would definitely recommend them. Thank you for your review and feedback. We'll make sure to forward your concerns regarding our packaging to our quality team as food quality is very important to us, and that includes the packaging. We're happy to hear about your success on Jenny Craig and we're happy to help you get back on track. I wanted to be a better me and so I signed up with Jenny Craig.

My interactions with the reps were good. Everybody I've dealt with has been very nice and helpful. I've used the program off and on for years. Right now, I'm not on it but when I have used the program, I lost weight. I haven't had any problem losing the weight but I got burned out on the food, eating the same ones over and over. I was on it about four months ago. Even so, I got to be able to choose what I liked after a while.

I wrote down things I didn't like so then I could choose what I did like. I was a big big chocolate person and then I always liked the pastas. I didn't really like the soups though. I would tell others that Jenny Craig works and the food is good but it's expensive.

Although the price is a motivating factor on me to lose the weight because I don't wanna throw my money away. Every diet is gonna work. You've just got to watch your portions and what you eat.

You gotta be consistent and it's a mindset. You have to be ready to lose. That's the success of it. You're not just gonna have one good day and then cheat the next.

Thank you for sharing your Jenny Craig experience. We are always working to develop new foods to keep our menus full of variety! We have new items coming out at the end of this month so stay tuned for those! I was drawn to one on one as opposed to weight watchers or a group, so I decided to work with them. My very first interaction with their reps was good and I enjoyed my personal consultant. I had used Jenny Craig before and this time, I have been using their weight loss program for a year and I am three-fourths of the way there.

The meal plan is good and I like all of it especially the baked potato. Overall they have a good program. Thank you for your feedback and sharing your Jenny Craig Experience. We're happy to be taking this journey with you! You'll be at your goal in no time! I was with Jenny Craig for two years. The rep I dealt with was very knowledgeable and helpful. I had an appointment, went in and talked about the week prior and the week coming up. I like their structure and the weekly weigh in.

In regards to their meals, they had yellow for breakfast and green for lunch, but I didn't like that they mixed them all together and I didn't like their tuna kits. In addition, the meal plan was a little too structured. They need more flexibility built into the program to be able to incorporate my own food because then, I'd get stuck on their food.

I'd try to prepare my own and I'd get lost. Also, the meals were too expensive, so I stopped. Other than that, the quality of the meals was good and the biggest thing I came away with was I learned the 'portion control' where I can have my sweets as long as they're portion controlled and timed out.

Overall, I had a great experience. I made a good progress and I'm maintaining my weight. Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear about the positive experience you had with your Consultant. Jenny Craig is a structured weight management plan that helps clients maximize their weight loss while building healthy habits.

Once a client has met their goal and are on our Maintenance Program we do teach them how to incorporate their own foods to maintain their weight. If you met your goal your Consultant would be happy to help you transition to our Maintenance Program. The Jenny Craig rep I dealt with was pleasant and knowledgeable, but it is odd that she's very overweight. I do not like that the menu plan feels rigid.

I wish there was a more flexibility in it. But for the most part, the food is fantastic and delicious. Thank you for your review! Even our employees go through their own weight loss journey that we help support them with every step of the way. Sounds like you are on our Rapid Results plan, if you feel that is not working for you let your Consultant know and you're welcome to switch to our Classic program. Jenny Craig was easy and my experience in dealing with their personal consultants was always good.

The one in Oakland was very sweet and upbeat. She was very supportive and she gave me ideas and encouragement. Since then, the meals have been quite good. I like the pasta dishes like the mac and cheese or the fettuccine Alfredo. The desserts are small but good nonetheless. I'm not a good dieter and it has nothing to do with Jenny Craig. I will lose a bunch away then I'll get off and gain it back and then lose it again.

They were always trying to keep me in check. My experience with Jenny Craig has been good. It was through my mom that I first heard about the company. The reps were motivating and they seemed to fit my needs. They were friendly and I felt comfortable. I don't like a lot of coaching so I made them aware of that.

I'm pretty self-motivated, so they worked with me with what I needed. I liked the portioned meals and the fat plan per week. The mac and cheese and some of the desserts were really good.

The food was good and I felt success from the plan overall. I used Jenny Craig three or four times over a year period and it worked. But then it became a little too costly for me at the end so I had to give up the program. Jenny Craig checks in with me every now and then. If it were a bit more cost-efficient, I would be able to do it. We have different program options you may benefit from, we're happy to give you more information regarding those programs. Recently, I did the Rapid Results and while it worked really well for me, I had some problems.

They are so rigid. If I know that if I eat the food, it always works. They have a good variety with their food and I tend to like the same things over and over. I like the breakfast ones. They used to have different pancakes but they changed the food which is another issue. I like their waffles. They got the breakfast scramble also and I like their Anytime Bars too, which is something they give for between the meals to hold you over.

They need to expand on their dressings though. They have great mac and cheese, which they know is popular. It has been around forever. They have a little cheeseburger too which I like a lot. Their desserts are pretty good too. Thank God they haven't taken that away.

They have a chicken and potato dish which is really good and the lasagna is not bad. They have little cinnamon rolls for breakfast that are good that makes me feel that I'm not on a freaking diet. I feel a little bit better. I know why they have to have shelf items because that travels well but I like the frozen items way better than the shelf items. I know them and they know me and they're very close to my house. I was very excited about that because I used to have to drive so far.

That makes it a lot easier and they're very close to a volunteer, which is a grocery store. Thank you for your feedback and congrats on meeting your goal before the graduations! We'll make sure to share your suggestion on more dressings with our Food Team. I have tried other weight loss companies, but I had not been completely successful. I walked in at Jenny Craig and my first interaction with them was fine except that they were slightly understaffed.

And three years ago, at the Tampa Florida center that I was really successful with, my experience was fantastic and the consultant was super! She shared a lot of her story with me and what motivated her. She worked with me to try to figure what would motivate me, and she got tough with me when I needed it.

I joined Jenny Craig again here in New Jersey and I'm having a problem with making an appointment and I sitting for minutes trying to wait for my consultant to be able to take me in. They are understaffed and have difficulty trying to fill positions. In Florida, my center was five minutes away, but this one is a half an hour away, so I keep quitting because I get frustrated. It's an hour round trip and then, I sit there sometimes for over a half an hour waiting.

The manager is great, but the center is not managed well as far as scheduling. And as far as the sincerity level of the consultants, I feel like a number up here at the New Jersey site. But down in Florida, I felt like a person that meant something to the consultant. Still, the quality and the flavor of Jenny Craig's meals are great and that's what makes the program successful, and it works.

I really like the butternut squash ravioli, fish and chips, and the breakfast burritos. I just wish that Jenny Craig could be managed consistently so that one center is not more superior to another center as far as customer service goes.

Also, the connectivity of the computers in those centers that I've been to has been terrible whether they have old computers or new ones. It's frustrating to every single consultant and the frustration flows over to the clients. We're sitting there and done with our appointment, and the order for the food cannot be processed because all the computers are very slow.

Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear about your success. We're going to have a Manager follow up with you regarding your experience in the New Jersey location. We strive to provide a seamless experience no matter what Jenny Craig you attend. We will be reaching out soon. I've done Jenny Craig in the past and it worked. Their representatives are both great girls. I've only been there since February and I've reached my goal.

They are the reason that I'm down 35 pounds. They pushed me forward. I look forward to the weekly visits and I told them that they are the highlight of my week. We laugh and have a really good time. I have a good menu plan and all the food is great, and if there's a meal that I can't do like pork or fish, we substitute and it's not a problem at all.

Congrats on your weight loss, that's fantastic! We're happy to hear about the great relationship you've developed with your Consultants. I have gone back to them over the years several times. And once you stop eating the food which over a period of time is a lot of money, you tend to gain the weight back.

Other than that, the food selections are good and I enjoy them. I change every once in a while, and they bring in new foods as well. I would recommend Jenny Craig and I have told people where I go to lose weight, but I've also told them the pitfall that once you stop eating the food, you gain that weight back a lot of times.

Our Maintenance Program will help you once you met your goal. While being on Jenny Craig you're learning portion control and getting in the habit of eating several small meals throughout the day. Jenny Craig's Maintenance Program is important because it helps you maintain your goal you worked so hard to get to. A Consultant would be happy to go over this with you, please give us a call and we'll be happy to help get you scheduled. I wanted to lose weight and I have a great experience using the Jenny Craig program on and off for 15 years.

The consultants have all been wonderful. Divide the number of calories you should be eating each day by 6 meals so that you are eating approximately the same number of calories at each meal. For example, on a calorie diet, allot calories to each meal. Log on to an online calorie counting website such as www.

Adjust your meals so that the calories add up to your target goal for each day. For instance, you may need to remove some extra foods you had planned on eating. Make it a habit of exercising for 30 minutes to an hour at least 5 days a week. Record your exercise along with all of your meals and their calories in your food journal every day. Continue creating weekly meal plans, at least one week in advance. Continue planning your shopping accordingly around your meal plans.
