You can customize menus, search a database of more than 1, recipes and get a personalized shopping list.

The Zone diet is mostly meat, fruits, and vegetables. You eat three meals per day plus two Zone protein-powder snacks. A study of people in the Journal of American Medical Association found the Zone diet helped people achieve modest weight loss after one year, comparable with those on the Atkins , Weight Watchers and Ornish diets, and improved cardiac risk factors. Pricing information is noticeably, frustratingly absent from the Jenny Craig Web site.
You eat three Jenny Craig meals plus a snack per day, and supplement with fruit, vegetables and dairy. Once a week, you get a weigh-in and pep talk with a consultant — who is not a dietician and who earns commissions from selling you products.
Jenny Craig has a good track record for short-term weight loss up to one year.

MelanieC , Apr 26, Mar 24, Messages: I want to try sparkpeople but I am worried about counting calories vs. DMickey28 , Apr 26, Feb 12, Messages: I joined Nutrisystem on Friday. I'm waiting for my food to be delivered. I've done weight watchers a million and one times. There are some nutrisystem forums. You might wanna jump over to them and browse through some of them. There are alot of people on the boards over there that have lost weight with nutrisystem and are currently in the stage of maintaining their weight loss with regular food.
I personally need something a little more strick than weight watchers. I'm a mom to two young children, work full time, and go to school part time so I'm extremely busy and don't have a whole lot of time to be cooking in the kitchen.
I think nutrisystem will help me with that aspect of my life. I should add too that the Jenny Craig program is a wonderful program too. My mother lost over 50 pounds on it. Aug 17, Messages: It depends on your lifestyle.
Do you have the time to buy and cook and prepare the healthy foods? If you work, are these foods accessible? However, my setbacks are my long commute and being busy at work and not being able to think and plan my meals. I go to a center and meet with someone face to face every week when I am being good. Helps keep me in check. The Jenny meals are much lower in sodium than Nutrisystem. They are also lower in sodium than Lean Cuisine's. I took a nutrition class last quarter and had to track my nutrition levels for a week while I was on Jenny Craig and I did a report on low carb diets and found that the Jenny diet met the daily guidelines of the food pyramid much more than the low carb diets did.
When I gain weight back on, it isn't the diet's fault. I have learned what portion sizes I should be eating. What to eat when I am hungry as "free food" etc. But I am a stress eater, and no diet out there can help me with that. I say try Jenny out.
See if they have a special going on or a money back guarantee if you do not like it. For me it is cheaper than eating on my own because I would eat out a lot.
LoraJ , Apr 26, Mar 19, Messages: Nutrisystem is cheaper but the food is not good! ANd no matter what you order they send whatever they want.
They say it was out of stock or whatnot, i think they use it as a means to get rid of the gross stuff. They kept saying send it back, and they will fix it, so I would pack it all up send it all back and then get another box of stuff I didnt want. It was an awful pain in the you now what, and got stuck eating yucky stuff.
You never get exactly what you request. ANd they never actually fix the order. Jenny Craig is incredibly expensive, but the food is much better. And no hassle with returning stuff.
