The rise of mobile health outlets like Apple (AAPL) Health and Fitbit (FIT) isn’t stopping Jenny Craig-Curves from focusing on a more personalized health and weight loss service. ‘Technology is certainly a big trend in fitness and weight loss,’ said Monty Sharma, CEO of Jenny Craig-Curves, based in Carlsbad, Calif. ‘But studies have shown that after initial engagement of about thirty days, there’s a big falloff because you have to count, track and measure everything you do with those technologies.’ He said this process is too difficult for some and that’s where Jenny Craig’s service fills the gap, as there is no need to track or count what you eat. Sharma speaks with TheStreet’s Scott Gamm in New York.
