Jenny Craig rated Best Diet; Weight Watchers scores a distant Third

 

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY – Jenny Craig, the diet program that combines counseling with a portion-controlled regimen of pre-made foods supplemented by home cooked sides, has been designated a Ratings winner by Consumer Reports Health.  With an overall score of 85, Jenny Craig easily surpassed the popular Weight Watchers (57) program by nearly 30 points.

The diet Ratings are based on adherence to nutritional guidelines set forth by the 2010 U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and weight loss and drop-out rates, both short-term and long-term, derived from published clinical trials.
