Who is the Manufacturer of Lipozene?
Hi Nancy, We are sorry to hear the NuMi promotion fell off after placing the order. I needed more regimens with the schedule and more discipline of what my portions are and what I need to eat. I'm okay with the soups and the chicken salad but I'm not a real fan of most the shelves stuff and I chose not to take those as a possible substitution. The Nutrisystem Consumer Experience Team. I have been on the program for only a couple of months, but I had a couple of things come up. We are happy to hear you got the answers you needed.

About 2 years ago, the PD got worse and affected my gait and balance. The limited mobility helped my weight increase from to The weight has caused heart problems, and leg swelling, which I could not correct. The Nutrisystem seemed a program I could follow, so I joined. In 3 weeks, I have lost over 20 , although hungry, my physical condition is improving, and my leg swelling has almost returned to normal. I will continue to reach a goal of , and hopefully, beyond for the remainder of my life.
Thank you so much for your review and sharing your story. We are so happy to hear how well the program is working for you. Remember to use those unlimited non-starchy veggies. They can be a big help with hunger especially in your first couple weeks on the plan. You can also reach out to a counselor at press option two.
They would be happy to go over more tips if needed. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Hope you have a wonderful day and congrats on your weight loss! Tomorrow is my last day on turbo take off. I was advised earlier this week to call back toward the end of my first week to speak with a counselor. If I could speak with William every time I called that would be fantastic.
Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy to hear you were pleased with your experience when speaking with William. Hope you have a wonderful day and welcome to the program! I would like to say for the first couple of days I found this a bit difficult but only because it was such a lifestyle change for me. Now I love it. I have lost 7. No longer on blood pressure pills and I have more energy.
Thank you so much for making my life happier. Thanks so much for sharing your review with us today. Congratulations on your success so far on the plan!
We're happy to hear that you are finding the plan easy to follow. If you ever have any questions, please let us know. The most important thing for me is that it is working.
On the road to lose 80 lbs. I've lost 28 after only 6 weeks. The food is not fine dining but it is good enough and with enough variety to not be boring. Some of the food is quite tasty and others only rate around good but, for me, that is not the point. The point is that now most of the time I am not hungry and I am losing weight without having to make major alterations to my life.
Surely, there are times when I just want to get a pizza delivered and munch out but Nutrisystem provides ways to deal with that. I'm not going to blow smoke, some self-control will be required. The few times I have some real cravings, I just pull up the weight chart and see that nice downward trend of weight and remind myself why I am doing this. The quick start program, for me, was the most difficult portion to get through but it surely did as it described.
My weight loss started quickly and tapered a bit, as expected, once I got on the regular weekly plan. I am still losing around 3 to 4 lbs a week which might be a little atypical but I'm not complaining.
This meal plan was exactly what I needed. Previously I ate healthy but I just ate too much. Comparing then to now, I realized I was eating roughly double what I should have been. So not only has this plan allowed me to lose weight but it has provided me with an idea of what meal sizes should be if I ever decide to stop with Nutrisystem.
I personally think the frozen meals are a very good add-on as they provide more variety and tend to be a bit more tasty and satisfying. I really do appreciate that this program exists. I just turned 50 not too long ago and was starting to have more concerns about my weight which has always been above 'normal'.
Nutrisystem not only seems to be dealing with my weight but it also helped me ease my mind about my future health. I'm also a workaholic which means that previous diets I tried had, what I feel was, a significant impact on my lifestyle. Which is probably the main reason they all failed. Nutrisystem is very simple. Take their base plan, modify the meal times to fit your current schedule, keep the intervals between meals roughly the same, and in no time it just becomes part of your day.
The food for the most part is portable as well which is rather convenient. Again, Thank You for providing this product. Before I was skeptical about ever seeing what I consider a healthy weight but this product and changed that skepticism into hope and has provided exactly what the proverbial doctor ordered. Plastic found in a dinner entree. It was very nice to see! I can't remember when this happened, maybe weeks ago.
I thought the response took longer than it should have. Really tho', I've had great customer service every time I needed them. Wait times when phoning are awful. I am very happy with the 30 pounds that I have lost. I love your food and do not want to totally stop my program. I am working with adjusting to everyday food lifestyle. But yet, I do not want to give up my program. I believe this will keep me on track with keeping my weight under control.
Thank you for my delays in my order. I tried Nutrisystem and found out I am allergic. I tried returning the items as they indicated there was a full refund policy, and they told me I couldn't. I called over seven times during the next 30 days and they were not cooperative or helpful at all. I got transferred around many times, and never had any help at all. I ended up moving, and canceled my card. Two months after that they tried charging my credit card and claim they shipped product, which I didn't order.
I never received product because I had moved. Very poor customer service! They try and snag you in and force you to keep buying, even if you don't like the product and even if you are allergic to it! I have told a lot of people about this horrifying experience and they are all appalled and said there are much better programs out there!
We are sorry to hear that you are unable to eat our food and we apologize for the poor service you've received. We will be looking into this and reaching out soon.
I have spoken with Chanta in her role as counselor. I was impressed with the interest and patience she posses. I am now able to form a more comprehensive plan moving forward with my required personal participation with the Nutrisystem to reach my weight loss goal. I am enthusiastically encouraged with my decision to take on this venture for my future. We are so happy to hear that Chanta was able to help you gain a better understanding of the program!

My NuMi bottle issue was already taken care of. He therefore missed the window to order the bottle in time for the 2nd month shipment. We would like to have it delivered with the order that is coming up for the 3rd month - we get auto delivery, so it is already set up.
We are happy to hear that your water bottle issue has been handled but are sad to hear that your husband is still having issues. We will be assigning this to a member of the Consumer Experience Team who will be reaching out soon.
I am very disappointed with the food. Most of it tastes the same to me and actually upsets my stomach. I did not realize I only had two weeks to cancel and much of that was mostly drinks.
Then you keep trying different food thinking something will be edible. I know there is plenty of fine print in contracts that should be read. I do not recall being verbally told about these conditions.
This was a lesson that left a very bad taste in my mouth. We are sorry that the foods upset your stomach and that you were unaware of the auto-delivery nature of the program. Not clear when I ordered that it would be on automatic order. Food is not good, not good instructions, dinners were bland. Too many entrees with spicy tomato sauce and cheese, dinners are bland. Shakes made me sick.
Emails were only to sell more. Thank you for writing this review. We are sad to hear the foods were not to your liking and that the deliveries would be automatic. We will be looking into your account and reaching out soon. This is a follow-up to the review I posted on September 5. Soon after I posted my first review, a rep from Nutrisystem contacted me via email.
The email was courteous, professional, and apologetic for the experience I had. The rep went on to offer replacement of the damaged food items I had received and encouraged me to give their company another try.
In light of this swift response and their sincere desire to ensure that I was happy with their product and service, I am revising my review. I accepted a ready-made menu that containing some items that I did not enjoy. In the future, I will make a point to select food items that I now know to be more to my liking than others.
I am very pleased and heartened by Nutrisystem's timely reply and concern for my purchase. They deserve a second chance. I ordered my month's supply of diet food from Nutrisystem with high hopes. When the food shipment arrived, most of the frozen breakfast items were broken into small bits; when I opened the packages, the bits fell out. Then I tried the frozen lunches. Since I take these to work, the only heating option is microwave.
Anything with bread or chicken comes out chewy, gooey, and icy cold in the center. It actually made me gag and lose my appetite, which wasn't the diet plan I expected. I am very careful when reading agreements, and for this item to be overlooked was no easy feat.
Fineprint at the end will do that to you. To add insult to injury, the obnoxious customer service person on the phone refused to accept my cancellation until she badgered me with questions and hard sell tactics in a desperate attempt to keep me buying their awful food.
Overall, this was a horrible experience. I will never use or recommend Nutrisystem again. We are so sorry to hear about your poor experience with the delivery of your foods, the food itself, and the representative you dealt with. We will be taking a peek at your account and reaching out soon. Was not satisfied with the taste of most of the foods, had to throw it away and buy something else, and most of the desserts had an ok flavor, And a lot of meals with cheese.
I was not happy with that. My first order included items I didn't order and one that I'm allergic to its ingredients. I was told by one person the items were probably substitutions and when ready they would be replaced. When I called the customer service lady was very rude, basically stated I was lying and wouldn't allow me to speak to a supervisor. I'm very disappointed with the service I receive so I will take my business to a place that has better customer service.
Went thru a few months of products. Following it closely and exercised Sent email to customer support and I was told to think of it as not wasted but I received nutritional food with fiber Now I know why it only got one star.
Weight loss system worksstale product and no one to answer to except counselors with no control. I emailed three correspondences to FIVE different departments only to receive a notice that they don't reply to emails because they were too busy.
I also included to them pictures of the moldy carrot cake, along with the packaging that states the date is still okay. The oatmeal is so stale it sticks to the side of the package and had to pour hot water in the bag to get the product out. Chocolate covered pretzels are stale. We did call and the rep was very nice and stated that she couldn't do anything except replace our stale food. How many packages were bad? I honestly didn't count how many items I threw awayat their prices ANY wasted product is too many!
Doesn't anyone there want to see a photo of the stale food? Does anyone there care? VERY poor about keeping the customer happy, however, are not timid about selling you the program. Shame on you, Nutrisystem.
We are sorry to hear about the spoiled and stale items you received. We will be reviewing your account and reaching out soon.
I am not sure why in today's time of electronics that it takes so long to get the information. We are sorry to hear that it took you so long to receive the information you needed for the program. We will be reaching out shortly. Pleased with the conversation with my counselor. I feel I have a better handle on what I should be doing.
I am looking forward to losing the weight I have set my goal for. Thank you very much for your help. We are happy to hear that you feel like you understand the program better after speaking with one of our counselors. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help!
I wrote in with a few complaints about some of the food I received; some broken food, bags not sealed and crushed muffins. Allison was very helpful and courteous and was able to change my mood. They need to expand on their dressings though. They have great mac and cheese, which they know is popular. It has been around forever. They have a little cheeseburger too which I like a lot. Their desserts are pretty good too. Thank God they haven't taken that away.
They have a chicken and potato dish which is really good and the lasagna is not bad. They have little cinnamon rolls for breakfast that are good that makes me feel that I'm not on a freaking diet. I feel a little bit better. I know why they have to have shelf items because that travels well but I like the frozen items way better than the shelf items. I know them and they know me and they're very close to my house.
I was very excited about that because I used to have to drive so far. That makes it a lot easier and they're very close to a volunteer, which is a grocery store. Thank you for your feedback and congrats on meeting your goal before the graduations! We'll make sure to share your suggestion on more dressings with our Food Team. I have tried other weight loss companies, but I had not been completely successful.
I walked in at Jenny Craig and my first interaction with them was fine except that they were slightly understaffed. And three years ago, at the Tampa Florida center that I was really successful with, my experience was fantastic and the consultant was super!
She shared a lot of her story with me and what motivated her. She worked with me to try to figure what would motivate me, and she got tough with me when I needed it. I joined Jenny Craig again here in New Jersey and I'm having a problem with making an appointment and I sitting for minutes trying to wait for my consultant to be able to take me in.
They are understaffed and have difficulty trying to fill positions. In Florida, my center was five minutes away, but this one is a half an hour away, so I keep quitting because I get frustrated. It's an hour round trip and then, I sit there sometimes for over a half an hour waiting.
The manager is great, but the center is not managed well as far as scheduling. And as far as the sincerity level of the consultants, I feel like a number up here at the New Jersey site. But down in Florida, I felt like a person that meant something to the consultant. Still, the quality and the flavor of Jenny Craig's meals are great and that's what makes the program successful, and it works.
I really like the butternut squash ravioli, fish and chips, and the breakfast burritos. I just wish that Jenny Craig could be managed consistently so that one center is not more superior to another center as far as customer service goes. Also, the connectivity of the computers in those centers that I've been to has been terrible whether they have old computers or new ones. It's frustrating to every single consultant and the frustration flows over to the clients.
We're sitting there and done with our appointment, and the order for the food cannot be processed because all the computers are very slow. Thank you for your feedback.
We're happy to hear about your success. We're going to have a Manager follow up with you regarding your experience in the New Jersey location. We strive to provide a seamless experience no matter what Jenny Craig you attend.
We will be reaching out soon. I've done Jenny Craig in the past and it worked. Their representatives are both great girls. I've only been there since February and I've reached my goal. They are the reason that I'm down 35 pounds. They pushed me forward. I look forward to the weekly visits and I told them that they are the highlight of my week. We laugh and have a really good time. I have a good menu plan and all the food is great, and if there's a meal that I can't do like pork or fish, we substitute and it's not a problem at all.
Congrats on your weight loss, that's fantastic! We're happy to hear about the great relationship you've developed with your Consultants. I have gone back to them over the years several times. And once you stop eating the food which over a period of time is a lot of money, you tend to gain the weight back. Other than that, the food selections are good and I enjoy them. I change every once in a while, and they bring in new foods as well.
I would recommend Jenny Craig and I have told people where I go to lose weight, but I've also told them the pitfall that once you stop eating the food, you gain that weight back a lot of times. Our Maintenance Program will help you once you met your goal. While being on Jenny Craig you're learning portion control and getting in the habit of eating several small meals throughout the day. Jenny Craig's Maintenance Program is important because it helps you maintain your goal you worked so hard to get to.
A Consultant would be happy to go over this with you, please give us a call and we'll be happy to help get you scheduled. I wanted to lose weight and I have a great experience using the Jenny Craig program on and off for 15 years. The consultants have all been wonderful. I enjoy the desserts and I have used the menu program, which works fine. The meals are good quality and they look good. Even people in my office has said that it smells good.
I've recommended people to Jenny Craig. With them, you would like the food and would also lose weight. When you stick to their program, you'll have good results. Thank you for your review and for recommending Jenny Craig! You're right, Jenny Craig works when you stick to the program! I really like the rep whom I spoke with to get started again.
She is very nice and easy to talk to and she understands when I have a crappy week. I have been on the program for only a couple of months, but I had a couple of things come up. My mom had a stroke and then my year old daughter had a baby, so it has been hard because I had to go out of town when my mom had a stroke. A lot of the food is good and I like a lot of it. Before, they had a different chocolate cake.
However, the only difficult part about it is when I have stuff come up like going out of town. If a person sticks to the plan, the program works really good. I would definitely recommend Jenny Craig to a friend. We're sorry to hear about your Mom. Please know we are always here to help and support you throughout your journey. We wish you all the best. My very first interaction with Jenny Craig was quite emotional for me way back in the day because I was very upset. At that point in time, I was only about pounds and when I went back in , I was In , I had gained a lot of weight before I got married due to the drama issues within family relations and that factored in a bit.
I couldn't shake the way through and I got discouraged, so I knew that going back to Jenny Craig was one thing that works for me. I did the Body for Life as well, but I was better with the pre-planned meal in the portions. Jenny Craig is within two hours from my house and all the gals that I deal with there are very good and understanding. I've been with Jenny Craig for long enough that a lot of times I know what it is that I'm supposed to do and what I'm doing.
I'm very verbal with the process and how I'm doing, and they provide the guidance knowing that I'm not just a Jane Doe off the street that doesn't know anything. I usually go there every four weeks, but this summer, I've been on a holiday so sometimes it's five weeks. I normally deal with Lynnea on a weekly basis because I get weekly phone consults. I normally talk to her every Thursday and that goes well because it's not just how many meals are going, but also whatever else is happening with my life that affects everything else.
It has always been interesting. Sometimes I deal with one of the other gals too depending on who's scheduled. But Lynnea is very good at asking the right questions.
She is understanding and supportive. There's no bashing going on, "Why didn't you stick to your plan," or "Why did this happen," or "Why did you lean off the wagon for a bit? I needed more regimens with the schedule and more discipline of what my portions are and what I need to eat. I needed that training again. They tell me that I can have veggies and if I wanna do something, then I have to give something up in moderation.
I've had to go to our head office for training sometimes and it was a process of being able to do that and still do the Jenny Craig stuff and make all that work for me. It was a good learning curve as well because it brought some real life in, even though Jenny Craig is the real food but it's the outside Jenny Craig food. The difficult time for me is usually between the time I get off from work and the time that my husband gets home.
Weekends aren't usually bad, but there are times when I'm feeling a little snacky and there's always the monthly cycle. There's no logic in there, there's no rationale, and there's no talking myself out of something. During those times, even though I don't need the chips, it doesn't matter. My husband is very supportive and he's also wanting to lose the weight, so we have picked up different plates.
We're learning portion control with him, the fact that he can eat like he is in his 20s. We purchase pretty much anything from Jenny Craig except the lemon stuff that I don't like.
I also can't have the shrimp stuff because my husband is allergic to shellfish. I'm fine with anything else, except for the honey and peanut butter. I don't like those because I don't like the aftertaste. But there's not very much that I don't like within the Jenny Craig menu. Normally, when I go to the city, I would look forward to going out for supper and my husband and I have shared meals.
That is a good thing as well because a normal meal for anybody is too much, but if you share a meal, then that makes a difference. I can still go out for supper even though I have my Jenny Craig food and I can have a side salad.
I'm still eating with people, but I'm being healthier and still having my Jenny food. They got a new Blueberry square bar. It's okay but it's not for everybody. I love the Cranberry biscotti bar and I would like to see that on their menu a bit more than see a Sunshine sandwich because I don't really care for the English muffins.
I've also gotten used to the butternut squash ravioli a bit more. I'm not a big spaghetti and meatball fan, but it still tastes good. My favorites of late are either the Turkey burger or the cheeseburger, but I like all the Jenny food.
There's not a whole lot on the menu that tastes like diet food and that's one of the biggest reasons why I like Jenny over some of the other ones that are out there. Weight Watchers says a lot of with peppers, which is fine, but Jenny does the rice and the potatoes. And they've got the pasta and still got their veggies. If you don't have that variety, then you're gonna get sick with the menu. I have already recommended Jenny Craig to friends.
We're happy to hear about how Jenny Craig has helped you in your life and about the great relationship you had with your Consultant. I was able to get in on a lifetime thing but they no longer offer it. From time to time, I go back then I picked up some weight and I reapply myself. I like the choice of food from Jenny Craig and most of the foods are really tasty. I get to enjoy a wide variety of things that I normally want to eat. I'm okay with the soups and the chicken salad but I'm not a real fan of most the shelves stuff and I chose not to take those as a possible substitution.
I like the Margarita pizzas, the flatbread pizzas and carbonara. I also like the pot pie and the macaroni and cheese which is one of my favorite. It is a pretty safe food and my favorite dessert is the triple chocolate cheesecake. However, one of the times when I went back to them I had a lot of issues with heartburn and I was taking over the counter medications on a daily basis.
I don't know if it's because of lack of the fat or just balanced food that it had these health effects to me. But within two weeks of going back I haven't had to use the heartburn stuff. I live alone and Jenny Craig works well for me. I don't have to worry about cooking for other people since I get to choose. I feel the difference when I'm going off inches in the waist but it's more that I'm a lot healthier and more for wellness.
I've talked to quite a few people I know about it. It will work well for people who are in the same situation but it also depends on the lifestyle and what they are willing to do. We're happy to hear about your satisfaction with the variety that Jenny Craig provides you. We'll share your feedback with our food team. I started Jenny Craig a long time ago. At the time, Weight Watchers still had meetings you had to go to and that wasn't for me. Jenny Craig had an offer at the time that I couldn't pass up.
It was 20 pounds for 20 dollars. I decided to give it a try and it worked. My first interactions with Jenny Craig was okay. A gentleman took care of me the first couple of times I was there. However, they were having a turnover of people at the time and he was just temporary. I was very skeptical when I first went. I didn't think it was going to work and was quite surprised when it did and it just kept me coming.
The first time I went there about eight years ago, I lost 54 pounds. And I kept it off for six years. Then I had things happen in life and gained the weight back.
I ended up going back again and I've lost pounds. I have 10 pounds left to go. My personal consultant is not quite as openly friendly, but she's a good consultant and knows what she's doing. When I go in weekly, I weigh in first and then I sit down and go over the next week's menu that I'm going to be on. At times, depending on what my weight is, she'll give me tips as to what I can do differently to make it better.
I've been going there for a long time and they have been there for me. They've changed their menu within the last four months and a lot of the original things they had were better than what they changed them to. They've changed their Anytime Bars now. Last week was the first time I had gotten the new ones.
They are really delicious, but they're smaller than the other bars were and they have more calories. They went up 10 calories per bar, which is 70 calories a week. And that's for not getting anything any different than what I had before. I'm not sure I like that at all because I was perfectly happy with the ones they had before. Also, I have found some at the grocery store that has more of all the good things than Anytime Bars.
Moreover, it has even less of the bad things in it. I think I'm going to go that route instead. There are also some meals that you couldn't pay me to eat. There are a couple of them that I have tried several times and I think they're worthless. I've tried the beef merlot two times. Each time I've gotten it, there were two tiny pieces of meat, about as big as the tip of my little finger, and the rest was all gravy.
Then there were vegetables in there. For me, that's not a meal. But overall, most of the food is very tasty. Congrats on your weight loss! We're happy we get to continue to help you meet your goals. We'd like to have Manager follow up with you privately regarding our experience with your Consultants.
As for the menus at times we do change or retire foods to keep our menu fresh and full of variety. I go on and off with Jenny Craig for 10 years.
When I first went in, it was welcoming and I was given the information. I did it for two months and I have lost weight. My norm is about 13 to 15 pounds when I go on Jenny Craig within the 2-month period. Then, I slowly start getting tired of the food so I slowly start going off but it was more to eat regular food than anything else.
Their consultant did not give me anything to work with. There were no suggestions on how to do things differently to keep me motivated enough to keep going so I always tend to lose interest. If I try to change up even a package with something else, we are really discouraged.
They could work with me on what I wanna change and they could be more encouraging than discouraging. The meal plan is too restricted. In the beginning, more people followed but for the longer-term client, they have to start doing a little adjustment. I'm going back again today and the consultants gave me a quick call and just asked how I am.
We're happy to hear about your weight loss on Jenny Craig. Our goal at Jenny Craig is to help you meet your goals and maximize your weight loss. The structure of our Full Planned Menus and the routine of meeting with a Consultant weekly is what makes our clients successful.
We encourage you to speak with your Consultant about making changes that fall within the parameters that will help you continue to optimize your weight loss. I belonged to Jenny Craig for many years and they were good. My interactions with my personal consultant were wholesome and very nice. I started in in Monterey, California and I lost pounds.
It was good because I worked at a scuba diving shop and I was exercising every single day, but weight loss is something you have to keep up with. In the 90s, they had more meetings. They also had all the tapes and these tapes were helpful. But this time, they don't have tapes. I wish they would've had CDs instead of the tapes, so I could listen to them better. They also had books and they had more training materials where now they don't. I like the menus and all the menus are good.
There are only a couple of things I don't care much for, but I eat it too. However, after a year, I got tired of the menu, but they do what they can to change them. They retire food and change them to new food. The quality of the meals is very good and I like the idea of not having to take the vitamins because last time, I had to take the vitamins and I lost my hair. My weekly visits with my dedicated personal consultant were very good, although right now, I'm not doing it because I'm waiting for the fall.
But I'm going back to Jenny Craig. I just have to budget because it's kinda expensive. Nonetheless, I'd recommend them. Thank you four your feedback. We're happy to help you get restarted with our returning client specials! I've been with Jenny Craig since the 90's, but I come and go. Still, I like the company. I like my consumption with their program and their food is good. They're not acidic, so my stomach doesn't get all messed up.
Furthermore, my consultant is the sweetest girl and we became really good friends. She's trying to help me to keep on track. Also, she's always worried that I exercise and I do whatever's necessary to lose the weight. She texts me and we go to her office.
There, I lose my stuff then I get weighted. She asks me about my week and how it went. Then we get a menu and leave for home. In terms of the quality of their food, most of it is nice. Jenny Craig did a lot of changes with their food. Still, I like them much more and I have my own personal favorite. They have integrated in the last three years and they've tried it to be a little bit more modern with our food. The program is good and when I followed the program as it should be, I was losing the weight an average of two pounds a week.
The problem is that if I go off it I don't lose any. When I first started their program, I was very focused and I lost 30 pounds. But over the years, losing weight is just not my main goal right now but it is not to gain weight. So when I'm off it, I gain weight. But if I followed the regimen I'll lose weight and I'll do great. Thank you for sharing your Jenny Craig experience with us.
We love to hear about the connection you have with your Consultant. Congrats on the weight you have lost. We're happy to continue to help you meet your goal. I was on Jenny Craig years and years ago, back in the early 80s.
I have always liked the program and the food, and I knew it worked for me, so I went back to it. They got me all set up and they weighed me in, measured me, encouraged me, and gave me my food. I show up for the weekly visits with my dedicated personal consultant and we weigh in and we talk about the week, the challenges, obstacles, things I can do, and plan for the week ahead, and then I grab my food.
I like all the different menu plans and they have more options. I like all the Mexican food. I like the program quite a bit. When I first joined, I had a program where I got a discount on my food weekly, which helped out significantly. And when I started going back again, that program was no longer in existence. But recently, they started where you could pay X amount of money to get a discount and get part of your money back a year after you reach your goal.
Since they brought that discount program back, they would have allowed anybody who has previously been on it to be grandfathered in. It was a positive experience and if you work the plan, it works.
I also like the personal interaction. We're happy to hear about your positive experience with Jenny Craig and how your Consultant helped and encouraged you. We're happy to continue to help you meet your goals!
I bit into a breakfast sandwich and a long black hair came out of the egg!!?? I was totally disgusted! If it could happen to one of their foods it could happen to many more. Whose head did it come from? Do they have any diseases? I contacted Jenny Craig Corp. Their response was a pro forma apology and an offer to replace the food item.
The thought of biting into any of their food makes me want to vomit! I replied that this was not a satisfactory response and they should ensure the public was aware of the possibility of finding foreign objects in their food. I got no response. I then sent email requesting a full refund of my investment into their program since at no fault of mine I was unable to eat their food. A week later I got a special delivery from UPS.
Inside was another pro forma letter stating Jenny Craig meets food quality standards. Please be aware that if you purchase food from Jenny Craig it is standard to find things in their food Very poor customer service.
My serious concern was dealt with by a pro forma letter. Food quality is extremely important to us, and we want to make sure your concerns are addressed. We have researched your account and found this is still an open investigation at this time, and we're pending a response from a request we mailed to you. We will have a Manager reach out to you to go over the next steps with you. The simplicity of the Jenny Craig program appealed to me. I have been on and off of it for about six years.
Their personal consultant has always been very good and very easy to deal with no judgments. We go in and talk about how the week went and we weigh in. Then, we talk about both for the next week and go through the menu and a way to go.
They have four different menus. The quality of the meals is very good and some are better than others. Still, when I'm on the program, I've had very good results. I recommend Jenny Craig. Thank you for recommending Jenny Craig! It's great to hear about how your Consultant has helped you stay on track and overcome challenges. I've been on every program there was and Jenny Craig was one of those left that I had not tried. I felt that it was a really affordable down payment option, since the other programs cost thousands of dollars to join.
The food was delicious although some were better than the others. The frozen food was much more endurable than the pantry items. There were some things that you microwave, like the pot roast, and I didn't find them as enjoyable.
For the frozen foods and the cinnamon rolls, the recipes improved but some other things went downhill. They changed the pizza and the blueberry pancakes and they were not as good. On the other hand, they bring out new foods periodically and that is very important for a program like that. It was a very positive thing for me as the food gets tired after being on the same thing.
The kept introducing new things, like the pumpkin muffins. But with anybody who has a weight problem, it is not because they like food.
In my case, there were a lot of emotional things that trigger food interaction and it was a very real situation. So giving somebody food is not enough. People need more time. Some are flying high and they don't need it but when you have something real going on, to put everybody in the same boat of a minute window is not realistic. When someone has a weight problem, you gotta get in when you can get in. But overall, Jenny Craig was good and I've recommended some people to go there.
The people who work there are always very polite and professional. I had the best leader over at the center and Jillian was really what kept me going back. They tried to stick me with other people and the other girls were nice but Jillian was the best.
She knew about the program and was very professional. I was back and forth the program quite a few times in a period of one year and a half and it worked for me when I worked hour days. It was very difficult to date and interact, and be on Jenny Craig. My leader was supportive of what other options I could do to substitute but it got very hard and expensive to have this type of program and also have to cook meals for somebody else.
We're happy to hear about the great experience you had with Jillian. Our Consultations in our Centers are currently 20 minutes; we agree they are very important and want to connect with you during every consultation.
