Jenny Craig Clients Lose On Average 20lbs

“Women who stick to the Jenny Craig weight-loss program lose between three and four times as much weight as women who diet on their own, according to a new study published Saturday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The study was funded by the Jenny Craig company, which provides counseling services and prepackaged low-fat foods to dieters through a nationwide chain of retail centers, or via phone and mail.

Women who ate the prepared foods and checked in weekly with a trained Jenny Craig weight-loss counselor in person or by phone lost about 20 pounds after one year, on average.

A control group of women who ate a generic low-calorie diet and received less frequent advice from a nutritionist lost just 5 pounds.” For more of the article, click here!

Jennifer Garner Looks Amazing

I know she’s had 2 kids…and took her time in taking the weight off…well, Hollywood standards.  But she looks great, almost a little too skinny.  Especially since the camera adds pounds!

Here (from CelebrityDietDoctor.com) is her diet and workout following her second child:

1600 calorie-a-day plan, eating 5-6 times per day

Breakfast Oatmeal or egg white omelet with a side of fresh fruit

Snack Apple slices with almond butter

Lunch Chicken with Mango chutney, steamed veggies and a green salad

Snack Whole wheat Wasa crackers with low-fat cheese

Dinner Grilled salmon in a citrus ginger sauce with asparagus and red-leaf lettuce salad

Beverages Water and an occasional beer or glass of wine.

Workout plan
Jennifer works out 50 minutes, 5 times per week. Prior to her workout, she warms-up with 5-10 minutes of brisk walking on the treadmill.

Day 1 Circuit training concentrating on back, chest, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and abs. Exercise routine includes step-ups, pull-downs, chest presses on a stability ball an reverse lunges.

Day 2 Mat Pilates exercises for core strengthening

Day 3 40 minutes on the treadmill, stationary bike, and elliptical trainer. She ends her cardio routine with a 5 minute abd workout. Some days Jennifer devotes all 40 minutes of cardio to one machine, while on others she spends time on all 3.

Day 4 Circuit training as on Day 1, concentrating on biceps, triceps, hips and shoulders

Day 5 Repeat Day 2

Day 6 Rest and recovery

Notes from her Trainer “If you can only exercise 20 minutes three times a week, you should be strength training – squats, push-ups, lunges, planks,” she explains. “You’ll burn the same amount of calories [as cardio] but you’ll also add lean muscle, which speeds up your metabolism.”
