Jenny Craig Silver

A weight loss meal-delivery plan for older adults.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Jenny Craig Silver is a weight loss meal-delivery plan for older adults. Designed to meet the specific nutritional needs of the senior population, like a slower metabolism but an increased need for key minerals like calcium, Jenny Craig Silver is uniquely created to make sure those who are older than 50 are at a healthy weight and can meet their nutritional requirements.

The Jenny Craig Silver plan features fiber-rich and low-fat meals that are lower in calories than most meal-delivery plans but rich in certain vitamins and minerals. Members can select from up to 80 meals and snacks as well as add their store-bought produce and low-fat dairy.

The plan also includes an exercise program and a weekly phone-call with a Jenny Craig consultant as well as access to online tools like a progress tracker, activity log and food journal.

You can expect to lose 1-2 pounds each week following the Jenny Craig Silver program.

DIET and NUTRITION

The Jenny Craig Silver plan is very much like any other Jenny Craig plan in that it offers a customizable meal plan that provides you with portion- and calorie-controlled meals delivered once a month.

You can choose between a planned or a personalized meal plan. If you select the personalized meal plan, you select among 80 different Jenny Craig meals and snacks and then add your own fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, unsaturated fats, and nonfat milk products for a complete and healthy meal plan.

Jenny Craig Silver meals are low in calories but still hearty in volume and flavor. Each Silver plan includes Jenny Craig MultiPlus Supplements, which provide extra calcium and vitamin D, as well as other bone-healthy minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, and iron.

A sample day might look like this:

  • Breakfast: Maple Nut Oatmeal or Blueberry Pancakes with Vegetarian Sausage
  • Lunch: Turkey Club Panini or Broccoli and Cheese Baked Potato
  • Dinner: Chicken Carbonara or Cheese Ravioli
  • Snacks: One serving of low-fat yogurt, a piece of fruit or carrots and celery sticks

The Jenny Craig Website also features a number of recipes that you can make at home.

EXERCISE

Exercise is encouraged on the Jenny Craig Silver plan as a way to help control weight and improve health. Doctor approval is required for those who are new to following an exercise plan.

Low impact activities like walking, golfing, swimming and gardening are recommended. The duration and intensity of your exercise plan will depend upon your fitness level and weight loss goal. You will work out an exercise plan that is tailored to your lifestyle needs with a Jenny Craig consultant.

CONCLUSION

Jenny Craig Silver was created to meet the nutritional and activity needs of the older adult population. Incorporating the same three principles of the Jenny Craig weight loss plan, mind body and soul, Jenny Craig Silver offers a convenient and flexible weight loss solution for those who are older than 50 to improve their health and feel great.

STAY AWAY FROM JENNY CRAIG...I was on it for 2 months when suddenly i developed a heart arythmia. My cardiologist asked me if I was on any diet...I told him I was on JC .... he told me to STOP IMMEDIATELY..that the food and the diet was the cause of my illness. It is a bad diet and the food is loaded with preservatives, fillers, etc...It lacked essential vitamins and minerals that caused my medical problem. I had the doctor write a note to Jenny Craig letting then know about this problem..and they neglected to listed and understand. They could care LESS! Everyone! from the consultant, to the Manager at the Garden City location and Corporate! I will never ever recommend this diet to anyone, and furthmore any doctor will tell you to stay away; that Weight Watchers is the better choice..the healthier choice.
You might lose weight , but you will certainly gain it all back when you get off it..because certainly not only is it so expensive, but there's no way anyone could tolerate the food for an extended period of time! The counselors have a quota to meet to SELL! That's all they care about is making money...DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCHEME! they are VERY FRAUDULENT and if you're desperate to lose weight...there are many other options!!!!
