Nutrisystem Launches National Search to Find the "10 Most Wanted" Success Stories

National Leader in Weight Loss to Award $50,000 to Weight Loss Role Models Who Have Bettered Their Lives Using the Nutrisystem® Program

FORT WASHINGTON, PA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  Nutrisystem, (NASDAQ: NTRI) a leading provider of weight management programs and services, truly wants its customers to find success in their dieting journeys -- and is willing to put its money where its mouth is. The Company announces its "10 Most Wanted $50,000 Giveaway," in which ten success stories will each win $5,000 and earn a chance to star in a Nutrisystem advertising campaign.

"Even as the obesity epidemic continues to worsen in our country, there are still millions of Americans who are hesitant to take the first step in leading a healthier lifestyle. The purpose of our 'Most Wanted' campaign is to help provide an incentive to encourage dieters to start a healthier lifestyle today and to reward ten stand-out individuals whose lives have improved from losing weight on the Nutrisystem program," said Chris Terrill, Chief Marketing Officer of Nutrisystem, Inc. "In addition to providing people with the tools to accomplish their weight loss goals, we are taking a moment to celebrate those who can serve as a role model for members of our Nutrisystem community, as well as for people everywhere."

Individuals who have lost weight through Nutrisystem at any point in their lives are encouraged to apply on the Company's website where they will fill out an application, submit photos that illustrate their transformation or opt to mail-in the photos. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and must have started a Nutrisystem program at a minimum of 18 years of age. All online entries will be reviewed by a Nutrisystem panel of judges, who will select ten total winners -- one female and one male -- from each of the five different weight loss categories:

  • 0-24 pounds weight loss category
  • 25-49 pounds weight loss category
  • 50-74 pounds weight loss category
  • 75-99 pounds weight loss category
  • 100+ pounds weight loss category

"Some people set out to lose a few pounds while others shed a significant amount of weight. No matter the final difference and number on the scale -- it is an accomplishment to reach a goal," said Terrill.
