Princess Leia needs diet advice and she's not turning to Han Solo or even Darth Vader for help.
Carrie Fisher is the latest Jenny Craig celebrity client and spokesperson. Joining Jenny Craig spokespeople like Valerie Bertinelli, Sara Rue, Nicole Sullivan and Jason Alexander, Fisher will appear in Jenny Craig's new ad campaign that launches in February.
Fisher is using Jenny Craig's new Metabolic Max program, the next generation of the signature Jenny Craig program. It measures calories burned with a BodyMedia FIT Armband. Jenny Craig consultants use that information to plan a weekly menu, review the client's caloric intake and activity levels for the week, and adjust the program accordingly to help maximize weight loss efforts.
Fisher started the program a few days after Thanksgiving and lost 12 pounds in six weeks. Her goal is to lose 30 total pounds.
The Carlsbad, Calif.-based weight management company has more than 700 company-owned and franchised offices in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Puerto Rico.
