Jenny Craig, a leader in the weight loss industry, introduced Rapid Results, an innovative science-based program that leverages the body clock’s natural circadian rhythm to assist in optimizing metabolism and help with weight loss. In addition, the new program is now available at all Jenny Craig centers and Jenny Craig Anywhere.
“Jenny Craig is the first major weight loss company to integrate the circadian rhythm and supporting research into a program, making Rapid Results revolutionary in the weight loss industry,” said Monty Sharma, CEO and President, Jenny Craig.
“This cutting-edge research won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, and we are eager to share our new Rapid Results program with our members to help them lose weight faster by restoring their body’s natural rhythm and metabolism.”
Studies have displayed that the body’s cells contain biological clocks that follow a distinct pattern on a daily 24-hour cycle – a natural circadian rhythm of light and dark that is matched with the body’s natural awake and sleep patterns.
As a result, when the body clock works in harmony with this circadian rhythm, favorable weight management and metabolism are more likely to happen. Rapid Results was designed with this science in mind and is structured to assist in restoring the body’s natural fat burning ability, so that members can lose weight quicker. In addition, members on the study who followed the Rapid Results program lost 30% more weight in their first four weeks when compared to the Classic Program.
“What the current science indicates is that what you eat, how much and when you eat are important factors for weight loss and weight management,” said Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP, FACSM, Chair, Jenny Craig Science Advisory Board.
“We have interwoven each of those factors into the design of the Jenny Craig success plan, guided by top-level scientists and research, and are proud to help members following Rapid Results lose more weight and improve their health.”
Rapid Results divides the day into two segments, a nourishment period and a rejuvenation period. During the nourishment period, members eat six times and choose from chef-crafted and nutritionist-designed meals. There is no counting, cooking, or meal prep and the daily menu is based upon appropriate nutrition for healthy weight loss. Throughout the nourishment period, Rapid Results provides more calories when your metabolism is burning the most calories.
The rejuvenation break plays a critical role in the weight-loss plan as a reset time. Research demonstrates that the rejuvenation period, which includes sleep time, allows the body’s cells to rejuvenate and regenerate, boosts the immune system, manages appetite and hunger, helps preserve muscle mass, decreases the risk for dementia, as well as enhances mental alertness and mood.
3-6 A key benefit of the rejuvenation period is that body fat, especially belly fat, decreases while muscle mass is maintained.7,8 This reduction in belly fat decreases obesity as well as the risk of type 2 diabetes.9
While on Rapid Results, Jenny Craig members will continue to receive the same support with a personal consultant, who is undergoing new comprehensive training to deliver excellent weight loss guidance, on a weekly basis. Members who join can lose up to 16 pounds in their first four weeks† for $16*, receive $70 in food savings** as well as free shipping for qualified orders.
