Jenny Craig Week 1

So the first week of being on Jenny Craig diet food delivered has ended and I gotta say I'm quite impressed, I have had a few little problems but on the whole its been brilliant. If you were thinking of trying this and thought you may feel hungry don't, in fact it's the total opposite most days I was full the rest I was very satisfied in fact there was only 1 day I did feel a little hungry that was day 2 and only because the Lunch (Pea and Ham soup) and the Dinner (Prawn Korma) weren't to my taste in 'real life'  I don't like Korma so I was never going to like it. I had never had Pea and Ham soup before so I have nothing to compare it to I just didn't like it. I also didn't like the sweet and sour noodles but I'm not a big fan of that either. I have had no problem with anything else I love the breakfast cereals and porridge and the Chicken Tikka Masala tasted like the real thing yummy!

Pea and Ham Soup!

Winter Vegetable Soup

Tomato Soup and Yes that is cheese on toast!!!

Sweet and Sour Noodles and a Mahoosive salad!
Pasta Bolognese 

Chicken Chasseur with Potato's
I am aware that depending on how much weight you have to loose would depend on how much extra food you will have to have throughout the day. Some days I did feel a little overwhelmed by the amount and also by the fact I could have things like Wholemeal bread as bread of any kind I have avoided in the past because of it high calorific value. I have learned even in this short space of time that it's all to do with portion control and having a meal with all the elements to it Fat, Starch, Protein etc I raised concerns about the amount of food and when I had to have it with my Consultant Jen and she said the food for that day could be moved around as long as you eat it all .

So for the important bit, Did I loose any weight this week? 
Yes I did I lost 1LB which if I'm totally honest I'm a little disappointed ( I expected at least 2) I followed it to the letter the only thing  it might have been is the glass of Red wine and a Vodka and Diet coke I had on Saturday night but I will ask Jen about that when I speak to her next. I would also like to point out that I didn't do any type of exercise this week, mostly because I simply didn't have the time but I also wanted to see what impact a change of diet alone would have ( not much as it turns out ). This week I will be working my little (big) tush off!!! I've not measured myself yet so perhaps I'll see more in the way of inch loss rater than weight (fingers crossed).

Is anyone else giving this a go?

Thanks for Stopping By xxx

  1. I have never tried Jenny Craig, but Weight Wathers and I liked it. I lost 2 stones, which is what I needed, I still want to lose maybe 5-7 other pounds.
    1 lbs a week is good, you should aim for 1-2, it is the best if you want to get rid of them in the long run!
    Keep us posted :)
