Ms. Alley initially found success with Jenny Craig in 2004, when she lost 75 lbs. on the program. She maintained her 145-lb. figure for three years, but once she left the company in 2007, her discipline, and weight, fluctuated. For a while, she was touting her own diet plan, organic Liaison. She returned to Jenny Craig because "I love that you have a consultant," Alley says. "It's like being an athlete. No athlete is going to do well without having a coach. We have to equate that to life. Without a coach helping us along the way, I don't think someone can make it for the long haul."
