Weight Loss - Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers

The two most popular ways to lose weight amidst regular people who can't afford personal trainers and chefs is either Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig. Both are advertised on TV and newspapers and celebrity endorsements like Sarah, the Duchess of York for Weight Watchers and Kirstie Alley for Jenny Craig.

Here are more or less some of the deviations and similarities between both these weight loss platforms and hinging on your lifestyle and budget, you can pick out which one would better accommodate you.

This weight loss curriculum is focused on weekly meetings where people who desire to lose weight gather and talk about challenges, celebrate victories and get tips and tricks from trained weight loss leaders. They get the benefits of ‘we are all in this together' because they see other people who have more or less weight to lose than them and feel the ethical support intoxicating and motivating This program is founded on the Points system (although in 2006 they rolled out a no-counting plan too). Every food is allotted a points value and elaborate lists and points calculators are offered to you once you join. Based on your height, weight and age, you're allotted a number of points that you've to use up in a day - and you're held accountable for it. ‘Bite it and Write it' is one of their catchwords where they encourage you to write down everything you eat so you know where you stand as far as the points are concerned.

This weight loss platform is more about the person-to-person approach with a educated advocate talking about issues with you personally. Some people choose to do it this way because they're embarrassed about their weight issues or do not need to sit around listening to accounts from a room full of unknowns. The Jenny Craig weight loss platform can only be successful if you purchase their food exclusively and consume that for the entire time you're on the program.

An occasional restaurant or fast food meal may be allowed; but for the greatest part, you need to purchase and consume their food. They have a lot of selections and you can pick three meals and two snacks a day. Nonetheless, it gives you less flexibility but fewer alternatives to get off course. While promotions run all the time, every week dues for Weight Watchers are about $10 and those for Jenny Craig are $6 plus all the food that could be around $80 a week at time of writing this article. Depending upon whether you are a people person who desires to join Weight Watchers with a gal pal or someone more private who'd rather concentrate on personal challenges, choose the platform that appeals to you and get moving today.
