Jenny Craig Max Up Week 1 Day 1

I overslept so I’m already messing up this diet. LOL. I was supposed to eat a recharge bar 2 hours before breakfast but couldn’t eat Willkie I was sleeping. Oh well. Here’s breakfast.

Waffles. Please oh please let them not be disgusting. I put them in my toaster and immediately noticed that they smell delicious. If they taste like they smell oh boy I’ll be happy.

The syrup is very thick.

Jenny Craig Classic Waffles with Syrup – 195 calories

While they didn’t taste as good as they smelled, they were not horrible. I would eat them again. You can taste the artificial sweetener in the syrup.

Smell/taste: A+/B, Serving size: B, Ease: A

Jenny Craig Shake- I am supposed to have a Jenny Craig shake with my breakfast. Unfortunately, you have to purchase these separately. So, on top of the $185.56 ($142.64 with coupon) and the supplemental food from the grocery store, you have to purchase shakes from Jenny Craig. They are $3.50 a serving. WOW!

Smell/taste – don’t know. Didn’t come with the food I bought, Serving size – don’t know. Didn’t come with the food I bought, Ease – really easy since I didn’t have the shake mix. Overall score for the Jenny Craig Shake – F-.

The Recharge Bar – you are supposed to eat this two hours before breakfast. I other words, since I get up at 5:30 and have breakfast, I would have to wake up at 3:30 to eat this. Nope, not going to do it. Here are some photos of the bar.

I am not going to lie, I was looking forward to eating this bar. Macadamia nuts, almonds, and pecans drizzled in honey? Sounds delicious. NOPE! I will not be eating these. I can’t imagine getting up extra early to eat this mealy, flavorless bar. Not going to do it!!!

Smell/taste: F/F-, Serving size: C, Ease: A

LUNCH TIME!

Today’s Jenny Craig lunch is orange chicken. Hopefully it is good.

JC Orange Chicken

Three minutes in the microwave and this delicious little mean was ready. the flavor was great. The chicken was actually very good. Not rubbery at all. I’m supposed to have an additional healthy veggie but I think I will skip it.

Smell/Taste: A/A+, Serving size: C (I’m going to be hungry in about an hour). Ease: B+

Dinner!!!!

Tonight I am having Three Cheese Macaroni with Broccoli with Carrots! Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert! Looks good. Four and a half minutes in the microwave.

Mac n cheese and veggies: Smell/taste: B/A, Serving size: B, Ease: A

Chocolate Chip Cookies: Smell/taste: B/B, Serving size: B, Ease: A – taste ok but hard, hard cookies.

So, my final conclusion on day 1 is that the food tastes ok but is not worth what they charge for it.

The Jenny Craig app is atrocious.

Thanks for reading!
