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!
