Eat Fruits and Veggies to Avoid Hunger
Don't Let the Small Portions Stop You From Indulging In Healthy Snacks
One drawback to the Jenny Craig meals—and their small portions—is that many program participants report feeling hungry again shortly after finishing their meal. To avoid grabbing an unhealthy snack in an attempt to fill the void later, supplement the meals with a piece of fresh fruit. Apples and pears are your best pick—the fiber and high water content can help you feel satiated.
On the Jenny Craig program, non-starchy vegetables are unlimited, but be careful not to substitute your junk food cravings with mountains of “unlimited” foods. All food has calories, and if Paris Hilton gorged herself on massive amounts of zucchini all day then her sex tape would have featured a very different physique (although her IQ would have remained intact). Stick to a 1-cup serving of veggies for a snack or meal add-on and you’ll keep calories (and hunger) in check.
