Interested in trying out Jenny Craig food? Learn more about the Jenny Craig 5 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit!
I was provided a free Jenny Craig Weight Loss Starter Kit. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
Last year, I did a Jenny Craig 3 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit review – and loved it. This month, I'm excited to announce that Walmart is now selling the Jenny Craig Starter Kit!
(Call first to make sure your local store has it in stock.)
You'll find the Jenny Craig Weight Loss Kit at Walmart in the diets/weight loss aisle. You can also order the Jenny Craig Starter Kit online at Walmart.com.
What I love about the 5 day Jenny Craig Kits sold at Walmart is that if you're interested in a diets/weight loss program like Jenny Craig, the kit gives you a chance to sample it without spending a lot of money or making a big commitment on the cost of food.
Both are great to help you meet your weight loss goal.
How to try out Jenny Craig at home
What I like about the 5-day kit over the 3-day kit is that it gives you a better feeling of what it would be like in real life on the Jenny Craig Weight Loss plan. I like that instead of buying weeks of food.
Having a five-day supply of prepackaged meals will help you understand how you'll need to plan and adjust your lifestyle to eat more healthfully.
Trying out this plan gives you time to learn about the Jenny Craig weight loss plan. You have the option to see if the food is to your liking before signing up at a Jenny Craig center in person.
You can join Jenny Craig Anywhere, their one-on-one support program that's done over the phone or on via Skype.
Why Jenny Craig may be right for you
I recommend a plan like Jenny Craig for people who are too busy to cook special meals for themselves when they're already cooking meals for their family.
Some of us are fine for a few days on a diet plan. Then we have a late night with a sick kid and forget to bring our healthy salads and cut up fruit to the office the next day. Too many calories!
Having premade and measured portions of food can make starting a healthy eating plan so much easier.
I also like how easy it is to bring a wide variety of prepackaged food like Jenny Craig to work or having it ready to go for dinner after an exhausting day.
Having that convenience makes it so much easier to stick to a plan and meet your goals.
What you get in the Walmart Jenny Craig 5 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit
Included with the 5 Day Kit from Jenny Craig is five days' worth of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks.
The Jenny Craig 5 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit also comes with a Starter Kit Menu to help your figure out which Jenny Craig meals to eat and when, and to give you guidance about fruit, milk, and non-starchy vegetable equivalencies.
You also get a coupon book that includes a free month of consultations with weight loss coaches for any Jenny Craig center in the US (or via telephone at Jenny Craig anywhere). You also get a $50 food credit when you sign up with Jenny Craig.
The Jenny Craig diet and weight loss plan are very easy to follow. All the Jenny Craig meals and foods are color-coded – yellow for breakfast, green for lunch, orange for dinner, and magenta for after dinner snacks. (Yes, after dinner snacks!)
This is also a way to get your blood sugar control in shape and meet your weight loss goal.
Also, if you're interested in a plan like Nutrisystem or Weight Watchers, this is a terrific way to compare plans, diets, and meals and how they help you with effective weight loss.
Jenny Craig food hacks
The food in the 5 Day Starter Kit was just as tasty as the Jenny Craig food in the 3 Day Starter Kit.
However, I missed the chocolate shakes from the 3 Day Jenny Craig Kit since my favorite breakfast hack (a fun way to dress up and play with my food) was to add espresso powder to the chilled chocolate shakes and make skinny mochachinos.
Another Jenny Craig weight-loss hack is for people who like milk in their coffee in the morning and wonder where they're going to get it.
Just don't put all 8 ounces in your Jenny Craig cereal! Instead, put 1 to 4 ounces of warm milk in with your coffee. (Heat it up in the microwave.) I like making a café au lait and using a no-calorie coffee syrup to sweeten my coffee.
Another hack you can do with the food in the Jenny Craig 5 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit is to take the Chicken Chili and combine it with 1/2 cup of your favorite frozen vegetables.
Mix the veggies and chili together in a microwave-safe dish, heat and you have a Chicken Chili Casserole.
The hack possibilities are endless: frozen yogurt pops with fruit, yogurt sundaes with fruit layers, or smoothies. (Add ice cubes to your blender for more volume to your shakes.)
The portion sizes in the meal plan are terrific and yummy! I loved all the options, too.
Disclaimer: Results not typical. Members following the Jenny Craig program had an average weight loss of 1-2lbs. per week.
