The food is fabulous...or it was when I went back in 2002. I weigh around 360...and they had me on 2000 plus a sandwich..so I am thinking 1700 is right for you.
I am thinking of giving it ago again..as I can't seem to get off of this huge STUCK point I am on.
I think that JC is an excellent program...I can't say enough about it. I did lose 47 pounds in about seven months..but went on to gain it all back plus more, as I just went crazy with my eating after I went on a vacation to Hawaii.
I think I would be great at it this time..as I have so much more control over what I eat.
JC offers STRUCTURE...as this is key for alot of folks.
