Why Jenny Craig Works for Vegetarians

By author photo Megan Alsford


A vegetarian diet may bring up images of vegetables, fruit, wholegrains, nuts and legumes. All very healthy foods, yet some people still struggle with their weight when they follow a vegetarian diet. This is because even the healthiest of food when overeaten can lead to weight gain. Plus, there are plenty of not so healthy vegetarian foods that are easy to overeat. We also know that weight gain and weight loss is challenging and complex and this is true for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.

This is why, no matter which diet you follow, the general principles of reducing your energy, or kilojoule, intake while increasing your output (the energy you burn) through physical activity remains the same. It’s also important to enjoy a variety of foods to ensure you get the nutrients you need to stay healthy while losing weight.

At Jenny Craig we offer a complete vegetarian weight loss plan that includes a variety of delicious healthy meals and snacks. Our trained Consultants also provide individual support to vegetarian members and can help tailor a menu plan that suits their individual needs.

The Jenny Craig Vegetarian weight loss plan works because it uses the scientific principles from our regular menu that have been independently proven to support weight loss. Each menu has been created by our team of Accredited Practising Dietitians to ensure they are nutritionally balanced and offer variety across each meal to help keep members enjoying their food, an important factor for long term success.

Jenny Craig has helped many vegetarian members reach their goal. Simone is just one them and her story is motivational. You can learn more about her story here.
