Jenny Craig: First Impressions

I’m sure that from the title that most of you will be able to guess what this post is about, but before I crack on with it let me give you my ‘diet history’.

There’s probably not a fad diet in existence that I haven’t attempted – lemonade, sacred heart, baby food, slimming world, and even starvation (fear not, I didn’t last long!). I’m the Fad Diet Queen.
Without giving you a sob story, I’ve always been ‘big’. I was bullied a lot for it when I was younger and my weight fluctuates more than share prices.

Last year I went on the Dukan diet and lost three stone. I felt amazing, and I looked a lot better – or at least I felt like I did, which is the main thing, I guess. But I moved away from home and my flat was above a deli – yes yes, disaster. Two stone crept back on – through a cycle of losing and regaining. And then just gaining …

So queue Jenny Craig. I’m sure you’ve all seen how amazing Mel B looks, and she claims it’s all down to Jenny Craig. Well the lovely Jenny contacted me recently (I wish! But her lovely PR team did!) and offered to provide me with two weeks worth of their eating plan to try.

After speaking to someone at their call centre on Tuesday evening, this massive package arrived on Thursday. Just so you really comprehend how big the box is, that’s my iPhone on the right.

The mahoosive box wasn’t just food though, it contained lots of information to help me make the best of the plan.

I was most impressed by the sheer variety of the food. Pasta, chicken tikka, korma, mashed potato – it’s hardly what I’d class as diet food, especially when comparing it to my previous ‘diets’.

I was also given a measuring spoon to help me with portion control – not for my JC meals, but the extras that you can add. The blue folder is full of a lot of information about the programme and your eating habits. It doesn’t just deal with losing weight, but also the reasons behind unhealthy eating habits. I really like this as I’ve always said that it’s something that’s inherently missing from other diet plans – they tell you what food to eat, but don’t address the reasons why you might make the wrong food choices.

I went shopping yesterday and got the extra things I’d need – vegetables, fruit, starches, fats, etc. and will be starting the diet today. Obviously I’ll keep all of my readers up to date with how I’m doing – and more importantly the weight loss!

The plan is available to buy from the Jenny Craig website, and is currently priced at £50 per week, which provides you with three meals a day. If you’ve got any questions about the plan, or you want some more information on in then make sure you check out the site.

This trial has been provided free of charge for review consideration. 
As always, PR sample or not, my review will be 100% honest, innit.
