Jenny Craig Program Guide Receives AADE Favorable Review
Carlsbad, Calif. (July 26, 2016) –Jenny Craig, a leading weight loss program, announced today that it has joined the American Association of Diabetes Educators’ (AADE) Industry Allies Council (IAC). Additionally, Jenny Craig’s Program Guide for people with type 2 diabetes received a “Favorably Reviewed” approval from the AADE, confirming the accuracy of the diabetes information, integration of key data and appropriateness for the target audience.

The AADE is a multi-disciplinary professional membership organization dedicated to improving diabetes care through innovative education, management and support. The Industry Allies Council (IAC) acts as a vehicle for both the AADE and its industry allies to create a dialogue on critical trends and issues affecting diabetes educators and their patients.

Jenny Craig is currently the only commercial weight loss program that is a member of the Industry Allies Council, and will be an exhibitor at the AADE Annual Meeting & Exhibition, in addition to participating in other activities.

“Jenny Craig is committed to creating impactful conversations about type 2 diabetes,” said Monty Sharma, CEO and president of Jenny Craig. “We are honored to combine efforts with the AADE and provide our proven and effective weight loss solution as a resource for the diabetes educator community.”

Jenny Craig for Type 2 is clinically proven to help members lose three times more weight and achieve greater glycemic control than those receiving usual care1. Members receive one-on-one support from a personal consultant who helps them customize their type 2 menu from more than 80 delicious, nutritionally-balanced items. Without having to plan or worry over every meal, members can lose weight with Jenny Craig and focus on taking control of their diabetes as they learn how to develop a healthy eating style to improve their overall health.

“Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and type 2 diabetes accounts for the majority of these cases. People with type 2 diabetes are at risk for many complications, including heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, kidney disease, vision problems and amputation,” 2 said Charles Macfarlane, AADE chief executive officer. “We are pleased that Jenny Craig is committed to generating awareness around type 2 diabetes and supporting all those involved in diabetes education and care.”
