NutriSystem Embraces Three New Markets With Customized Weight Loss Programs


New Plans for Men, Vegetarians and Type II Diabetics Offer Tailor-Made Weight Loss Results

HORSHAM, PA -- 12/20/2004 -- NutriSystem (AMEX: NSI) has launched three new programs to address a variety of consumer demands. NutriSystem Nourish, the revolutionary weight loss program that combines the proven NutriSystem portion control approach with a low Glycemic Index menu, is now available in customized programs for men, vegetarians and those suffering from Type II Diabetes.

“Personalization is paramount to weight loss success,” says Dr. Jay Satz, NutriSystem vice president of program and product development. “We created these new plans in response to the many requests we’ve received from individuals who, regardless of their individual circumstances, want to lose weight with NutriSystem and achieve a healthy lifestyle.”

Made For Men

The NutriSystem Nourish Men’s Program has been custom designed for the 60+ percent of overweight adult men in this country. The plan includes more calories than the traditional NutriSystem Nourish program and features meals with higher amounts of protein to keep men feeling satisfied while still losing weight. Men can choose their own prepared meals and desserts that will arrive right on their door step, providing a convenient way to eat healthy without weighing, measuring or counting calories, points or carbs. This truly is a program just for men that both satisfies and teaches proper nutrition and portions.

Diabetics and Dieting

Type II diabetes is a growing problem in the U.S. which affected 8.7 percent of the adult population in 2002. According to the CDC, the number of Americans with diabetes more then doubled between 1980 and 2002. With excess weight and obesity being the leading causes of Type II diabetes, it is exceptionally important for diabetics to maintain a healthy weight.

Understanding that diabetics have to follow very strict guidelines in order to maintain healthy glucose levels, the NutriSystem Nourish Type II Diabetic Program has created a simple approach to losing weight. All of the prepared meals and desserts focus on low glycemic carbohydrates along with optimal amounts of protein and fiber, allowing diabetics to maintain stable blood sugar levels throughout the day while still losing weight. NutriSystem has taken the work out of menu planning and has made diabetes control easier.

Vegetarian Dieters Rejoice

The only prepared foods weight loss program available to vegetarians, the NutriSystem Nourish Vegetarian Program allows vegetarian dieters to maintain their lifestyle while losing weight. The NutriSystem Nourish Vegetarian Plan offers many delicious food choices, including more than 45 nutritionally balanced, prepared foods combined with tips on how to live a healthier life.
