Default Jenny vs Nutra System

I would like some help I am going to try one of these food systems but I am torn on which to choose. Which food tastes the best?
Thanks
Nanci

Haven't tried Jenny. I am on NS and it is working very well for me.
What swayed me was the fact that when I was doing my research, I read that there is a lot of pushing from JC to buy other stuff besides the food when you visit the centres and I preferred not having to visit one anyway.

Good luck!

I've tried both.

I lasted ONE day on NutriSystem. YUCK is all I can say! Alot of their food is shelf-stable, and I couldn't hold it down. I couldn't stand the smell either. I'm very tolerant of food and not a picky eater, but NS was just awful in my opinion.

As for Jenny Craig, I think their food was delicious! The only reason I stopped was because I started looking into the ingredients on their food and noticed all the high fructose corn syrup, hydrongenated oils, etc. It tastes good, but it's because their food is loaded with alot of preservatives and junk.

JC food is tasty, especially the mac and cheese!!! If you don't want to have to pick up your food at a center you can do Jenny Direct and have your food shipped to your house.

I've done both and stayed on JC. I'm down 29 pounds since mid January. It took me a while to figure out that I couldn't eat the breakfasts and desserts. Too much sugar. I thought they used artificial sweeteners but...nope.

Husband stuck to NS and has lost 50.4 in the same amount of time. He exercises more than me but still.....he's doing good. Much better since he picks his own meals. I hated the food but some of the stuff he got to pick for himself....and their new frozen...looked pretty darned good.

You can't get frozen JC food from Jenny Direct.

I've been on NS for a couple of weeks now, and I really like most of the foods! I'm losing so far as well. I like being able to choose the meals myself.

I've been on JC for almost 1.5 years. They continually add new foods and have only found a few that I haven't liked, I just don't order them any more! I'm on Jenny Direct, so I don't go to a center, just talk with a consultant over the phone.
Here's an article that someone else posted in another thread:

I have not done either but have friends that have done both and they both like them. I'm looking in to doing it and my big thing will be the price.

I am on Jenny and I like it.. Sometimes I eat market frozen food especially if it is lower calories or fat.

I lasted 2 days on Nutri system, couldn't eat the food. The amount of food was miniscule, and lots of outside shopping needed.

Ive tried NS and now am on Jenny Craig. Let me tell you, the JC food is DELICIOUS! Ive never really loved frozen food, but the jc food is good. I also like being able to speak with my consultant each week and have her track all my measurements and weight. Those are the two aspects I prefer over NS.
