BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

According to medical research, losing weight and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels are two of the most important lifestyle behaviors a person can do to control his or her Type 2 diabetes.

In this country, this medical condition is reaching near epidemic levels given the rise in obesity. Of the 20.8 million Americans with diabetes, 90 percent to 95 percent have Type 2 diabetes.

Now Jenny Craig, one of the most well-known meal-delivery weight loss programs, has created a plan specifically tailored to those with Type 2 diabetes. The Type 2 program addresses Jenny Craig's three key areas critical to effective weight loss: Food, body and mind.

With Jenny Craig Type 2, you start by eating portion controlled, frequent meals and snacks. You mix in some activity that's fun and right for you. And then you top it off with weekly meetings with your personal consultant to make sure that everything stays on track.

Jenny Craig Type 2 also offers free eTools so you can track your progress, schedule activities, record your daily feelings in your journal, and much more, all online. This helps you gain more control so that you can achieve your health and weight loss goals.

DIET and NUTRITION

Jenny Craig Type 2 meals are designed to help maintain regular blood sugar levels, an integral component of managing diabetes.

The Jenny Craig Type 2 menus meet the clinical nutrition recommendations of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), while also meeting Jenny Craig's high taste standards.

Like other Jenny Craig plans, Jenny Craig Type 2 follows the volumetrics eating style, which emphasizes eating larger amounts of lower calorie and fiber-rich food to help you feel full longer and reduce overall calorie intake.

When you sign up for the Jenny Craig Type 2 plan, you work closely with your Jenny Craig consultant to design an eating plan that fits your lifestyle. Even traditionally diabetic food no-no's like fruit and dessert can be safely and healthfully enjoyed while following this well-organized plan.

On the Jenny Craig Type 2 plan, you are allowed three meals and two snacks per day. You can select from up to 80 different entrees and snacks as well as get healthy recipes from the Jenny Craig website.

A sample day on the Jenny Craig Type 2 plan might look like this:

  • Breakfast: Jenny Craig Cheddar Cheese Omelet
  • Lunch: Jenny Craig Chicken or Tuna Salad Kit
  • Dinner: Jenny Craig Meatloaf with Barbecue Sauce
  • Desserts/Snacks: Jenny Craig White Cheddar Popcorn, Chocolate Caramel Peanut Bar or Tomato Florentine soup

Fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, low-fat dairy and healthy fats may also be included in your Jenny Craig Type 2 plan.

All Jenny Craig entrees and snacks are low in saturated fat and cholesterol, high in fiber and do not contain any trans-fats.

You can either order your meals online and have them delivered to your door or pick them up at a Jenny Craig center.

EXERCISE

Exercise is an integral component of the Jenny Craig Type 2 program. Once you sign up for the program, you will meet with your personal Jenny Craig consultant to devise an exercise plan that fits your lifestyle, current health status and long-term health goals.

Since one of the main intentions of the Jenny Craig Type 2 program is weight loss, cardiovascular exercise, which helps to make blood sugar metabolism more effective and improve heart functioning, will be a mainstay of your fitness plan.

CONCLUSION

Jenny Craig is a science-based and comprehensive weight loss plan that has helped millions of Americans lose weight.

In an effort to address the millions of Americans who have Type 2 diabetes, the weight loss company has devised a plan that incorporates the key successful elements of the Jenny Craig plan while also focusing on the unique health and dietary issues of those with diabetes.

While the program gets high marks for its comprehensive plan, the Type 2 menu options don't appear to be that much different than the menu for the other Jenny Craig plans.

If you have been recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, get approval from your doctor first.
