I have 10 pounds left to go. I continue drinking the shakes to maintain. Wish I could add "malted" mix.

206 Jenny Craig Consumer Reviews and Complaints
There's a problem loading this menu right now. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Excellent shipping and service! I love using body by Vi because I know it works, I lost 40lbs my first 90 day challenge! I am using these as a meal replacement for 2 meals a day since I am trying to lose weight. After 5 days I have lost 7. I do walk 4. For healthy snacks I've been eating a piece of fruit banana, apple, etc. I did do some trial and error to determine what worked for me from a taste perspective and have provided details below.
I've tried them all This is by far the best tasting and keeps me feeling satisfied. In my opinion it beats out Advocare, Shakeology, and Fit Miss, etc. I don't mix up any fancy smoothies, its great with black coffee or even just water.
I plan to purchase regularly. Great Taste - but put it in a plastic container! This stuff is very yummy. It has a good consistency and little to no aftertaste of the normal protein powders.
If I could take away a half star for packaging a would. Nothing to do with taste - that's 5 stars. However, the resealable zip top doesn't work because powder gets stuck in it I tape it shut everyday. I'm usually rushing around in the morning making this shake and I find it's hard to reseal and also to scoop out without making a mess - a plastic container with rigid sides and a lid would definitely be better.
I'm not sure why I have such a hard time with this package, I'm an adult! Most of the time I end up with some on the counter that I have to scoop bag in the bag or on the floor that the dog gets to enjoy.
I just wish it was cheaper. I use it so often to make protein bars but can't justify the highly price protein. For my bars, I use: I think you should at least try it Okay, so my initial thoughts on this First, for a one pound bag I thought that is a bit pricey, but when I actually received the bag I was surprised at how much larger a one pound bag is than what I was visioning. Okay, the pouch is nice, inviting, and looks appealing as a consumer. Next, comes the smell test. As soon as I opened this up I was overwhelmed with the smell of cake It smells just like a cake mix, it truly smells amazing.
So then, of course I had to try it. The powder blends beautifully, it is not gritty, it is just wonderful if you mix it with some almond milk. I did add a tsp. This stuff is so far superior to Perfect Keto.
Not only is it from grass-fed cows, but it also contains collagen and butter. The consistency is very smooth, which probably comes from the butter. It doesn't separate if it sits for awhile. The flavor is also fantastic, kind of chocolate caramel, and because it's sweetened with monk fruit, doesn't have that bitter stevia aftertaste - it almost tastes like there is a bit of real sugar in it - not overly sweet and cloying but just enough to make it taste good.
The vast majority of the ingredients aren't too nefarious, unlike almost all of the other whey products on the market. I love that there is so much in this little package collagen, MCT, grass-fed butter! I smelled it while opening and didn't have high hopes about the chocolate flavor, but I was wrong. I generally make shakes with spinach, avocado, cashew milk and protein powder.
I assumed this would be a rather bland shake. The flavor is quite nice. I will buy again. I calculated the price for this against making my own powder with similar ingredients and it cannot be done.
Making my own, without adding in cost for cocoa and sweetener and not having grass fed butter added in would only save a few pennies! Deceptive servings The protein tastes great and mixes easily. My gripe is it claims to be a jar with 24 servings. The standard for me when looking for a serving of protein post workout is around 20g.
This is only 10g. Save yourself a ton of money and buy the MCT, grass fed collagen, and grass fed protien separately and mix yourself. That'll also give you the flexibility of fine tuning the fat to protein ratio you're looking for. I've used this for 2 weeks, and have even skipped some days and so far have lost 8 pounds. Combined with a good calorie dinner and exercise this shake works wonders. I really dont mind using this flavor everyday.
I mix with vanilla almond milk I used the fremch vanilla mix for months, it helped me loose about 40lbs. I continue drinking the shakes to maintain.
I mix with vanilla almond milk, I wish I had tried it sooner! Ordering my 2nd one today: Great meal replacement shake I wanted to wait until I finished the entire container before I listed my review.
I purchased this to find a way to easily have a "meal" at my desk as I am tied to my desk most of the day with no time to leave for lunch or breaks. I found myself not eating most of the day and then eating a ton when I got home for dinner. The price is good, shipping is fast through Amazon and you don't have to go through an Herbalife consultant for the product.
The cookies and cream was a good flavor I tried shaking longer and adding more liquid. It make it more "fun" to clean my shaker but other than that, I really didn't mind. This stuff works great. I started using Keto1 a month ago while on a low carbohydrate high fat diet. I have struggled to lose weight in the past and have not had much success. I did not weigh myself during that month, but I stuck close to my diet and drank the Keto1 daily. I was not hungry during this time and actually felt like I was spoiling myself and eating too much.
I was shocked today when I weighed myself and found that I had lost 17 lbs. I found that for taste purposes that mixing the Keto1 with 12 oz of pomegranate juice, one scoop of Keto1 and one liter of bottled water it suited me best.
The only source of carbohydrate was the pomegranate juice with Keto1 for a total of 57 grams of carbohydrate daily. I don't have a ketone meter, but this product is by far the tastiest exogenous ketones I have ever had! I have had all brands zhou, perfect keto, etc.. I use it twice a day, one scoop before workouts in the morning, I fast until around 2pm in the afternoon, and it keeps the hunger pains away. I usually will have a second scoop before dinner too.
I have noticed major differences in my body fat, my mood and my mental clarity ever since I switched to the keto diet.
This is a drink that kickstarts you into ketogenesis where you begin to use body fat as fuel rather than carbs. It's not for everyone, some would find it difficult to sustain for months or years on end.
I have been at it for a month and week now and my body fat has decreased from double to single digits and I am continuing to add lean muscle mass from a diet high in protein and fats.
Tastes kinda different at first but not bad, you get used to it. Update, June 16, This stuff is an amazing tool. I don't know if it's directly responsible for my success, but it IS working like it says it should. It says to use 2 tbs per shake for "essential fatty acids".
I usually don't and that cuts a lot of calories. But the olive oil adds a wonderful smoothness to the shake. The graininess practically disappeared. Be sure to use a light tasting olive oil.
I haven't actually done the 3-a-day plan yet. When I do, I'll probably use the oil. That would put your calories for the shakes at about a day.
Good to not dip too far below that. At first, I was "worried" about not eating solids. I thought I would be hungry. Use if your love affair with food is over This product works. It works especially well if your battle with food is due to poor choices and high caloric intake. I used the three shakes per day for three days to start and found the first day the most difficult.
The taste is gritty but not unbearably so. I had to deal with my constant thoughts of eating by distracting myself with other tasks. By the third day I did not feel deprived and felt confident continuing forward with the plan. I started on June 3 and after 23 days I have lost 25 pounds. I noticed a change in my energy level and also some much needed room in my waistband. I have switched to healthy snacks like almonds, cashews and fresh fruit.
I make sure I eat fresh vegetables in some form each day and rarely have bread, but when I do it is whole grain. It Does Work Been on the diet for 2 weeks now. I did the 3 shakes per day for 4 days then I changed to 2 shakes per day and 1 meal.
The Bistro MD program was created by Dr. Cederquist who has over 10 years of clinical experience in weight management. She is one of only about doctors nationwide to have achieved board certification in bariatrics—the specialty of medical weight management. While there is only one plan that focuses on portion control with an emphasis on lean protein and complex carbohydrate you get over menu items to choose from.
The meals are restaurant quality — prepared by gourmet chefs and give you a lot of food to eat. Plus the meals are freshly made and you get a wide variety with over items to choose and a 6 week rotating menu. These services are rated based on: Fresh Meals — Excellent Diet To Go is one of the few diet delivery services that use no preservatives in their meals. Meals are freshly prepared and then packed in dry ice, and shipped in a styrofoam cooler.
Highly Recommended If you are concerned about preservatives, Diet To Go is one of the few delivery services that make meals fresh. 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. I enjoy the desserts and I have used the menu program, which works fine. The meals are good quality and they look good. Even people in my office has said that it smells good. I've recommended people to Jenny Craig.
With them, you would like the food and would also lose weight. When you stick to their program, you'll have good results. Thank you for your review and for recommending Jenny Craig! You're right, Jenny Craig works when you stick to the program! I really like the rep whom I spoke with to get started again. She is very nice and easy to talk to and she understands when I have a crappy week. I have been on the program for only a couple of months, but I had a couple of things come up.
My mom had a stroke and then my year old daughter had a baby, so it has been hard because I had to go out of town when my mom had a stroke. A lot of the food is good and I like a lot of it. Before, they had a different chocolate cake.
However, the only difficult part about it is when I have stuff come up like going out of town. If a person sticks to the plan, the program works really good. I would definitely recommend Jenny Craig to a friend. We're sorry to hear about your Mom. Please know we are always here to help and support you throughout your journey. We wish you all the best. My very first interaction with Jenny Craig was quite emotional for me way back in the day because I was very upset. At that point in time, I was only about pounds and when I went back in , I was In , I had gained a lot of weight before I got married due to the drama issues within family relations and that factored in a bit.
I couldn't shake the way through and I got discouraged, so I knew that going back to Jenny Craig was one thing that works for me. I did the Body for Life as well, but I was better with the pre-planned meal in the portions. Jenny Craig is within two hours from my house and all the gals that I deal with there are very good and understanding. I've been with Jenny Craig for long enough that a lot of times I know what it is that I'm supposed to do and what I'm doing.
I'm very verbal with the process and how I'm doing, and they provide the guidance knowing that I'm not just a Jane Doe off the street that doesn't know anything. I usually go there every four weeks, but this summer, I've been on a holiday so sometimes it's five weeks.
I normally deal with Lynnea on a weekly basis because I get weekly phone consults. I normally talk to her every Thursday and that goes well because it's not just how many meals are going, but also whatever else is happening with my life that affects everything else. It has always been interesting. Sometimes I deal with one of the other gals too depending on who's scheduled. But Lynnea is very good at asking the right questions.
She is understanding and supportive. There's no bashing going on, "Why didn't you stick to your plan," or "Why did this happen," or "Why did you lean off the wagon for a bit? I needed more regimens with the schedule and more discipline of what my portions are and what I need to eat. I needed that training again.
They tell me that I can have veggies and if I wanna do something, then I have to give something up in moderation. I've had to go to our head office for training sometimes and it was a process of being able to do that and still do the Jenny Craig stuff and make all that work for me.
It was a good learning curve as well because it brought some real life in, even though Jenny Craig is the real food but it's the outside Jenny Craig food. The difficult time for me is usually between the time I get off from work and the time that my husband gets home.
Weekends aren't usually bad, but there are times when I'm feeling a little snacky and there's always the monthly cycle.
There's no logic in there, there's no rationale, and there's no talking myself out of something. During those times, even though I don't need the chips, it doesn't matter. My husband is very supportive and he's also wanting to lose the weight, so we have picked up different plates.
We're learning portion control with him, the fact that he can eat like he is in his 20s. We purchase pretty much anything from Jenny Craig except the lemon stuff that I don't like. I also can't have the shrimp stuff because my husband is allergic to shellfish.
I'm fine with anything else, except for the honey and peanut butter. I don't like those because I don't like the aftertaste. But there's not very much that I don't like within the Jenny Craig menu. Normally, when I go to the city, I would look forward to going out for supper and my husband and I have shared meals. That is a good thing as well because a normal meal for anybody is too much, but if you share a meal, then that makes a difference.
I can still go out for supper even though I have my Jenny Craig food and I can have a side salad. I'm still eating with people, but I'm being healthier and still having my Jenny food. They got a new Blueberry square bar. It's okay but it's not for everybody. I love the Cranberry biscotti bar and I would like to see that on their menu a bit more than see a Sunshine sandwich because I don't really care for the English muffins.
I've also gotten used to the butternut squash ravioli a bit more. I'm not a big spaghetti and meatball fan, but it still tastes good. My favorites of late are either the Turkey burger or the cheeseburger, but I like all the Jenny food. There's not a whole lot on the menu that tastes like diet food and that's one of the biggest reasons why I like Jenny over some of the other ones that are out there.
Weight Watchers says a lot of with peppers, which is fine, but Jenny does the rice and the potatoes. And they've got the pasta and still got their veggies. If you don't have that variety, then you're gonna get sick with the menu. I have already recommended Jenny Craig to friends. We're happy to hear about how Jenny Craig has helped you in your life and about the great relationship you had with your Consultant. I was able to get in on a lifetime thing but they no longer offer it.
From time to time, I go back then I picked up some weight and I reapply myself. I like the choice of food from Jenny Craig and most of the foods are really tasty. I get to enjoy a wide variety of things that I normally want to eat. I'm okay with the soups and the chicken salad but I'm not a real fan of most the shelves stuff and I chose not to take those as a possible substitution. I like the Margarita pizzas, the flatbread pizzas and carbonara. I also like the pot pie and the macaroni and cheese which is one of my favorite.
It is a pretty safe food and my favorite dessert is the triple chocolate cheesecake. However, one of the times when I went back to them I had a lot of issues with heartburn and I was taking over the counter medications on a daily basis. I don't know if it's because of lack of the fat or just balanced food that it had these health effects to me.
But within two weeks of going back I haven't had to use the heartburn stuff. I live alone and Jenny Craig works well for me. I don't have to worry about cooking for other people since I get to choose. I feel the difference when I'm going off inches in the waist but it's more that I'm a lot healthier and more for wellness.
I've talked to quite a few people I know about it. It will work well for people who are in the same situation but it also depends on the lifestyle and what they are willing to do. We're happy to hear about your satisfaction with the variety that Jenny Craig provides you. We'll share your feedback with our food team. I started Jenny Craig a long time ago. At the time, Weight Watchers still had meetings you had to go to and that wasn't for me.
Jenny Craig had an offer at the time that I couldn't pass up. It was 20 pounds for 20 dollars. I decided to give it a try and it worked. My first interactions with Jenny Craig was okay. A gentleman took care of me the first couple of times I was there. However, they were having a turnover of people at the time and he was just temporary.
I was very skeptical when I first went. I didn't think it was going to work and was quite surprised when it did and it just kept me coming. The first time I went there about eight years ago, I lost 54 pounds. And I kept it off for six years. Then I had things happen in life and gained the weight back. I ended up going back again and I've lost pounds. I have 10 pounds left to go. My personal consultant is not quite as openly friendly, but she's a good consultant and knows what she's doing.
When I go in weekly, I weigh in first and then I sit down and go over the next week's menu that I'm going to be on. At times, depending on what my weight is, she'll give me tips as to what I can do differently to make it better. I've been going there for a long time and they have been there for me. They've changed their menu within the last four months and a lot of the original things they had were better than what they changed them to.
They've changed their Anytime Bars now. Last week was the first time I had gotten the new ones. They are really delicious, but they're smaller than the other bars were and they have more calories. They went up 10 calories per bar, which is 70 calories a week. And that's for not getting anything any different than what I had before.
I'm not sure I like that at all because I was perfectly happy with the ones they had before. Also, I have found some at the grocery store that has more of all the good things than Anytime Bars. Moreover, it has even less of the bad things in it. I think I'm going to go that route instead.
There are also some meals that you couldn't pay me to eat. There are a couple of them that I have tried several times and I think they're worthless. I've tried the beef merlot two times. Each time I've gotten it, there were two tiny pieces of meat, about as big as the tip of my little finger, and the rest was all gravy.
Then there were vegetables in there. For me, that's not a meal. But overall, most of the food is very tasty. Congrats on your weight loss! We're happy we get to continue to help you meet your goals.
We'd like to have Manager follow up with you privately regarding our experience with your Consultants. As for the menus at times we do change or retire foods to keep our menu fresh and full of variety. I go on and off with Jenny Craig for 10 years. When I first went in, it was welcoming and I was given the information. I did it for two months and I have lost weight. My norm is about 13 to 15 pounds when I go on Jenny Craig within the 2-month period.
Then, I slowly start getting tired of the food so I slowly start going off but it was more to eat regular food than anything else. Their consultant did not give me anything to work with. There were no suggestions on how to do things differently to keep me motivated enough to keep going so I always tend to lose interest.
If I try to change up even a package with something else, we are really discouraged. They could work with me on what I wanna change and they could be more encouraging than discouraging.
The meal plan is too restricted. In the beginning, more people followed but for the longer-term client, they have to start doing a little adjustment. I'm going back again today and the consultants gave me a quick call and just asked how I am. We're happy to hear about your weight loss on Jenny Craig. Our goal at Jenny Craig is to help you meet your goals and maximize your weight loss.
The structure of our Full Planned Menus and the routine of meeting with a Consultant weekly is what makes our clients successful. We encourage you to speak with your Consultant about making changes that fall within the parameters that will help you continue to optimize your weight loss. I belonged to Jenny Craig for many years and they were good. My interactions with my personal consultant were wholesome and very nice.
I started in in Monterey, California and I lost pounds. It was good because I worked at a scuba diving shop and I was exercising every single day, but weight loss is something you have to keep up with. In the 90s, they had more meetings. They also had all the tapes and these tapes were helpful. But this time, they don't have tapes.
I wish they would've had CDs instead of the tapes, so I could listen to them better. They also had books and they had more training materials where now they don't. I like the menus and all the menus are good. There are only a couple of things I don't care much for, but I eat it too. However, after a year, I got tired of the menu, but they do what they can to change them. They retire food and change them to new food. The quality of the meals is very good and I like the idea of not having to take the vitamins because last time, I had to take the vitamins and I lost my hair.
My weekly visits with my dedicated personal consultant were very good, although right now, I'm not doing it because I'm waiting for the fall. But I'm going back to Jenny Craig.
I just have to budget because it's kinda expensive. Nonetheless, I'd recommend them. Thank you four your feedback. We're happy to help you get restarted with our returning client specials!
I've been with Jenny Craig since the 90's, but I come and go. Still, I like the company. I like my consumption with their program and their food is good. They're not acidic, so my stomach doesn't get all messed up.
Furthermore, my consultant is the sweetest girl and we became really good friends. She's trying to help me to keep on track. Also, she's always worried that I exercise and I do whatever's necessary to lose the weight.
