Jenny Craig edges out rival Nutrisystem
Nutrisystem allows you to track your weight loss progress through the tracking tool available on its official website. But Nutrisystem still has Jenny beat when it comes to variety. Later, you will steadily lose about one to three pounds a week. Risk-Free Guarantee Nutrisystem is offering day risk-free guarantee. We joined both programs, obtained menus, and ordered foods. I can tell you that the Nutrisystem food tastes pretty decent, depending on your expectations. NutriSystem Nutrisystem is an easy-to-follow and effective diet program, and offers great convenience to its users.
I am happy to report, that both Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem work extremely well when used correctly, but there are some differences between the plans that may make one option better for you when compared to the other.
Of course, there will be some fresh fruit and produce involved, so you will be doing a small amount of grocery shopping as well. For example, they have different offerings for people with diabetes, vegetarians, men, women, and you can even decide if you want to pick your own menu or have Nutrisystem pick the food for you.
The price for the plan will change accordingly, but just know that you have a number of different options when it comes to creating a customized plan that will meet your needs. Nutrisystem is going to be a great option for anyone who likes the idea of having healthy diet food delivered right to your door, and that will help you lose weight as long as you follow the plan. There are plenty of people who have lost 10, 20, 30 pounds, and even more using the Nutrisystem diet plan.
To learn more about their broad range of offerings, visit the official Nutrisystem website. As of today, Nutrisystem is offering some pretty awesome deals for TheDietDynamo. Their biggest selling point, however, is the level of support that can provide you during your weight loss journey.
Jenny Craig offers a dedicated personal consultant, who is there to support, guide, and encourage you along the way. Unlike Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig has a number of centers in cities and towns throughout the United States, so you can actually meet with your weight loss consultant in person. You can also meet with your consultant via phone, Skype, or video chat, so no matter where you live you will have access to your support person.
With each of their plans, you get a customized menu for the week, so you know exactly what foods to buy, and what to eat, which makes things pretty clear and easy to follow.
How you answer these 2 questions will help you decide which Nutrisystem or Jenny Craig plan if either is right for you. Keep in mind that the average weight loss for both of these programs is one to two pounds per week. So the key question becomes: The food on the basic Nutrisystem plan has been likened by many to combat rations or astronaut food.
If you aren't as tough as Clint Eastwood in an old Western, you probably won't be able to eat the food on the lower end Nutrisystem plans very long. So if you're even a slightly picky eater, your choices are really narrowed to Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem's highest-end plan called Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours.
We'll cover the cheaper Nutrisystem Basic plan for you tough guys and gals in a moment, but let's start by comparing the better tasting, more realistically liveable options: Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours and Jenny Craig. Keep in mind that none of the above prices include veggies, fruit, and dairy that both Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem require you to buy in your supermarket. You'll eat specially-chosen frozen meals from many popular brands that you'll buy in your supermarket. BUT they don't offer phone support.
It's self-service using their online Daily Food Journal where you click on foods from their dietitians' approved lists The big difference between Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours and Jenny Craig, is that on Jenny you'll be eating mostly frozen meals which most people find better tasting than the "shelf-stable" no refrigeration necessary meals offered on all Nutrisystem plans, including on Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours.
But the Uniquely Yours plan is unique among Nutrisystem plans, in that it also offers frozen meals on its menu, though you're limited to one per day 24 frozen meals in each 4 week period, since one day per week you are instructed to eat your own foods.
For the other meals on Uniquely Yours , it's back to "Rambo time" meatloaf that needs no refrigeration , the same meals eaten by the Nutrisystem Basic Plan members. Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours is a possible compromise solution for some. It is cheaper than Jenny Craig, though more costly than other Nutrisystem plans. When you're on Auto-Delivery, it's really easy to get stuck with an extra month's charge, even if you decide to cancel.
Be very careful to read the fine print if you select Auto-Delivery for any of the Nutrisystem plans. Many Jenny dieters compare their food's taste to the taste of Lean Cuisine, which might not be a coincidence, as until Jenny and Lean Cuisine were owned by the same company.
Jenny Craig offers a bigger selection of frozen meals than Nutrisystem Uniquely Yours , though when you add in the shelf-stable meals as well, Nutrisystem has a wider total variety of food choices. Remember, "shelf-stable" means no refrigeration necessary, so you can store these meals in the cupboard. You can't be a "snowflake" and eat this food. You buy the food separately. But, let's not forget to factor in the daily Jenny snacks and necessary grocery items veggies, fruit which will increase the costs significantly.
There are sometimes discounts and promotions available that could save you money on these fees. Sometimes the initial enrollment fee is cut in half during a promotion.
But again, this doesn't include the cost the Jenny Craig food. On any Jenny plan, you'll quickly figure out that the major cost of Jenny Craig are not their plan prices but their food prices! Perhaps the exclamation point is unfair, as Jenny's food prices are significantly less than some of their high-end competitors such as Bistro MD.
Like Nutrisystem's premium "Uniquely Yours" plans, Jenny offers both shelf-stable non-refrigerated and frozen foods. Jenny Craig allows members to pick up their food at their local center or opt to have it shipped to their home for an additional charge.
The biggest difference between the Jenny "12 Week Trial" and the Jenny Month Premium" plans besides the price tag is the access to private diet consultations. The "Trial" plan offers only 1 phone or online meeting with a Jenny consultant, whereas the "Premium" program gives you unlimited, in-person consultations if you live close enough to a Jenny office to take advantage of this.
Keep in mind that the Jenny "consultant" is not a nutritionist, but mostly a food salesperson for the Jenny products. This plan is a shipment of 28 days worth of shelf-stable food no refrigeration necessary which is chosen for you, which means that you let Nutrisystem pick your meals instead of giving that job to your taste buds believe me, your taste buds would have picked the frozen meals.
Shelf-stable food is very convenient, as it doesn't require space in your freezer. And that's an understatement.
