I am so excited. I got to interview Nicole Sullivan today. I just LOVE her. You know who she is right? She played Holly, the dog walker on the King of Queens and Rita in Rita Rocks. Oh yeah, she was on Mad TV too.

Well the reason I interviewed her is she is the new Jenny Craig spokesperson. She just lost 35 lbs at age 40!

According to her publicist, Nicole "followed the food-body-mind principles of Jenny Craig by meeting with her consultant weekly, following a nutritional balanced menu and gradually increasing her activity over the course of four months from walking 1-2 times a week up to 4-5 times a week for 45 minutes."

When I spoke to Nicole this afternoon she was so excited about her weight loss. She described exactly how she did it. She received 3 frozen meals a day and two snacks. To each meal she basically quadrupled the portion size by piling on fresh vegetables. That's the secret she said. The veggies which are totally "legal" in the program kept her from feeling hungry PLUS they have the added advantage of being healthy!

Nicole said Jenny Craig offers a variety of meals and snacks to choose from and they are all delicious. The best thing about the prepared meals was she didn't have to count calories or record what she ate. It's super simple.

I asked the mother of two how much it costs. "Between $12 and $18 a day" she said and then added "Hey if you go out to lunch you're spending around $8 so it really isn't that expensive."

She also described how you are assigned a consultant that works with you. That person will help you work through the menu choices and get you back on track if you stray a little. (Nicole admitted she snuck in an "illegal" pizza once!)

Nicole was so sweet. I am so happy and excited for her and can't wait for her big bikini reveal. She has me convinced that Jenny Craig works.

Nicole ROCKS!
