One of the main problems with Jenny Craig and other prepared meal plans is a lack of food. It’s seems as though Jenny has cornered the market by adding volumetircs to their meal plans. If you aren’t familiar with Volumetrics it basically allows you to eat more bulk for your calories. In a sense, you eat more and weigh less!
Jenny Craig, Inc. is pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive license agreement for the worldwide rights to use the Volumetrics® approach developed by Dr. Barbara Rolls, PhD. An endowed Guthrie Chair in Nutritional Sciences at The Pennsylvania State University, Dr. Rolls is the author of the New York Times’ bestselling books The Volumetrics Eating Plan and The Volumetrics Weight Control Plan: Feeling Full on Fewer Calories, and one of America’s leading authorities on weight management for the past 20 years. The agreement acknowledges Jenny Craig as the only weight loss organization that is authorized to use Volumetrics®, which has inspired the creation of Jenny Craig’s new satiety-centric menus.
“The new menus allow clients to eat more food, feel fuller and add nutrients with fewer calories,”explained Lisa Talamini, RD — Vice President, Research & Program Innovation for Jenny Craig, Inc. “Not only is this significant from a nutritional standpoint, it also supports the findings of health experts around the world that consuming low-calorie density fruits, vegetables, high fiber starches and lean protein can help lower the risk of heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer and other medical conditions (source).”
With any prepared meal plan, there is always the concern that you won’t learn how to eat without them. With the new volumetrics plan; there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe people will learn how to eat even after Jenny.
