Jenny Craig has today announced its newest ambassador, Jelena Dokic, who is starting her weight loss journey at 99kg and by following Jenny Craig’s latest program, Rapid Results, aiming to shed 33kg in just six months.

"I’ve tried most of the popular diets out there but the results have always been short term, and with restrictive menus they felt like a constant battle," explains Jelena. "With Jenny Craig, there are over 70 food items I can choose from and they’re all delicious - I don’t feel like I am restricting myself at all. Plus, when things get tough and I need support and guidance, I check in with my consultant, Belinda, who really helps me to stay on track."

After years of failed diets, Jelena says she needed to find a program that offered a balanced, sustainable plan that she could easily follow and would fit within her busy lifestyle. Jenny Craig offers its members unparalleled support with weight loss consultants who plan their meals and snacks to suit their lifestyle. Each week’s consultation is an opportunity for members to learn new healthy habits, including how to overcome any hurdles and celebrate their weight loss success.

"As an athlete, I like having structure in my life and that’s why Jenny Craig was a natural choice. My meals are planned and pre-made so I don’t have to worry about what I eat and how big my portions should be. It’s the first diet I’ve ever tried that doesn’t make me feel like I am missing out on tasty food," says Jelena.

To help their members achieve maximum results, Jenny Craig has created the Rapid Results Program. The essence of this Program is that when it comes to weight loss, it’s not just about what and how much you eat, but also when you eat. With members losing an average of five kilograms in the first four weeks, the Rapid Results Program provides members with a plan that takes maximum advantage of their body’s natural metabolism and ability to burn kilojoules when it’s most effective, helping members lose weight faster.

Jenny Craig’s Dietitian, Megan Alsford explains, "Research shows that aligning eating to our natural circadian rhythm comes with many health and weight loss benefits. It not only helps to regulate metabolism and blood sugar levels, but also assists in controlling appetite hormones. For someone like Jelena who’s always busy and on the go, following her natural body clock will help her get back to optimum health more quickly."

The Rapid Results Program leverages innovative science involving the natural body clock, which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine. It works with the natural cycles of your body to provide a 12-hour period of nourishment when your body can burn kilojoules most effectively, and then a 12-hour period of rejuvenation during which your body can rest and recover. When your body goes into rejuvenation mode, your body’s cells aren’t distracted by metabolising food. Rather, they get a break to regenerate, repair and restore in preparation for the next day.

"I’m really excited to start my weight loss journey with Jenny Craig and am looking forward to getting my confidence back. The first step is always the hardest but I know I am in safe hands, and I can’t wait to be fit and healthy again!" Jelena says.
