The good side of this diet is that, you don’t need to count calories, because they make your meals, you get one of the best support (1-1 support), and this diet is based on science. But, there are some drawbacks as well. Maybe the one of the most important drawback is, when you reduce weight, you must keep it in that way, but they don’t teach you how to maintain your weight.

Generally, there is enough nutrition when you are using this diet, but daily need for fat can be barely satisfied or even below the limit. The same situation is with your daily need for fiber and potassium. On the other side, your daily need for proteins, carbohydrates, calcium, vitamins B12 and D will be in the optimal range. But, Jenny Craig recommends the use of supplements because in this kind of diet is very hard to provide all nutrition needed.
