This is my meal planner and info on the foods I need to add. For example, when it says you need to add a yogurt, the grocery list tells you how much it should weigh and how many calories it should contain so that you make the right choice. So far this all looks quite simple to follow.
This is all of my food for the next two weeks, minus any fresh fruits and veggies and things I need to add.
These are the breakfast which include different flavoured muesli, corn flakes and porridge.
Lunches look easy to make at work, which is essential for me. They include pasta salads, pasta or noodles in sauce and soups.
Dinners - not sure why there's one odd container and all the rest are in pouches. Some of these sound really nice and look very tasty from the pictures. I've got things like Three Bean Chilli, Beef Goulash, Tomato and vegetable pasta, Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Chasseur to look forward to.
I also get to eat one of these snacks per day which are either a cereal or biscuit bar with chocolate or crisps.
I'm starting tomorrow and I'll update with how I got on with my first day and what I've eaten including the foods you add yourself.
I'm feeling quite positive about trying the diet, but I've failed on so many diets in the past that I'm also skeptical about how I'll get along with it. We shall see. The concerns I have at the moment are not being able to eat out or deviate from the plan in any way and also what my boyfriend will eat as I won't be cooking any dinners for him! I am quite looking forward to the ease of this program though - I'm fairly disorganised so it'll be good not having to worry that I've not made lunch for work and it'll take away the stress of choosing what to eat and trying to make healthy decisions. I'd really like to lose some weight before my holiday in September, so I'm going to give this diet a really good try.
Let me know if you're doing Jenny Craig or if you've done it before - I'd love to hear your tips and experiences. I was referred to the program by Sarah who documented her progress on her blog here.
