Jenny Craig

Jenny Craig, now known as Jenny, has been using celebrities to advertise it's program for a number of years now. Mariah Carey is the latest who shed over 30 pounds after giving birth to twins. While I think some parts of the Jenny program are good in that you are provided with an individual counselor, unlike the group meetings of Weight Watchers, it's still a food based program. Weight Watchers claims the Jenny advertising is deceptive (ABC article here) and I tend to agree with them. Neither Mariah Carey nor Valerie Bertinelli  lost weight by eating Jenny Craig food alone. No one can get a body that toned without vigorous exercise and/or surgery.

So unless Jenny Craig is now providing a personal trainer included in their program they might take the credit for the weight loss, but not for the toned bodies of their skinny celebrities.
