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.
