  • I never tryed either of those, I tried weight watchers point system it worked well for me. I have a hard time eating diet food I find it to be tatseless, on weight watchers point system you can eat any type of food you want, as long as you stay at your given points for the day. I was still abel to eat fast food when I wanted and still lost 19 lbs. in the first 2 weeks.

  • I have heard that both are great. I know that with Nutrisystem you have to be very self-motivated because there aren't meetings or counselers that you have to stay in contact with. So do nutrisystem if you're willing to go at it alone, but do Jenny Craig if you feel like you'll need the support to stay focused and committed. Good luck!

  • I tried NutriSystem. The food isnt good. And they make you believe that you just have to heat up some meals they send you. YOu have to add stuff to the meals and do a lot of measuring. And I actually gained weight because I didn't exercise as much as I should have and you eat a lot on the NutriSystem plan.

  • JC is pretty expensive, but food is good. Nutrisystem is less costly and less tasty too.

  • I went of JC and I lost 35lbs. It's easy, you don't have to worry what your going to eat nor do you have to weigh it. The downside is that it can be a little pricey. But I thought it's worth it.
