I hit 40 years of age and looked around or in my case down, and found myself overweight - suddenly,vernight - or so it seemed. After tring a multitude of diets, I finally tried Jenny Craig. I did indeed lose 40 pounds. As long as you eat the food as protioned by the good folks at Jenny Craig, you not only lose but can maintain. Adn the food is good!!!! But come off of it and you will regain the weight - at least I did.
