Some people are surprised to learn that Jenny Craig isn’t named after a particular person. It is the result of a collaboration between couple Sidney Craig and Genevieve Guidroz Bourcq. The two created a quick yet solid bond over their interest in the weight-loss industry. They moved to Melbourne, Australia, in 1979 and began Jenny Craig while they were there.
While Jenny Craig is among the best-known weight loss programs in the world, it is costly in comparison to others. It is also overly reliant on processed foods and doesn’t always deliver consistent results. The processed foods, in particular, are an issue as recent research has shown just how bad these items are for you.
