FORT WASHINGTON, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nutrisystem (NASDAQ: NTRI)
a leading provider of weight management products and services, announced
today its all-new, clinically tested Turbo10
program, a structured weight
loss
program designed to help individuals lose up to 10 pounds and
five inches overall in their first month of dieting, along with a slate
of innovative, nutritionally sound products.


Innovation at Forefront of Nutrisystem for 2016

“It’s an important time of year for people looking to take the first
step to a better, healthier life and we’ve never been better positioned
to help Americans with what they turn to us for most — weight loss
results. We never lose sight of that. We’re in the business of
transforming lives starting with helping as many people as we can
fast-track their weight loss goals one day at a time, one pound at a
time,” said Dawn Zier, President and CEO of Nutrisystem. “Product
innovation that delivers a clear and healthy path to weight loss is
front and center in all we do. This year, we’re debuting our simplest,
healthiest and most effective program to date.”

All-new Turbo10 Program, Featuring New Line of Probiotic Shakes

The lead product launch is the all-new Turbo10,
a clinically tested program that delivers up to a 10-pound weight loss
and an overall reduction of five inches from the waist, hips, thighs,
chest, and arms in just the first month. The Turbo10 program includes
Turboshakes™, the Company’s first ever line of shakes with probiotics to
support digestive and immune health and help reduce belly bloat. Packed
with protein and containing the clinically tested GanedenBC30®
probiotic, this Nutrisystem® shake line makes its debut in the
structured meal delivery space.

All plans include unlimited comprehensive counseling options from
trained weight loss coaches, registered dietitians and certified
diabetes educators, at no extra cost and available as needed, seven days
a week from 7am-midnight E.T.

Keira Krausz, Nutrisystem CMO, added, “The new Turbo10 is simple to
follow — no counting, no points, no figuring out the right mix of lean
protein, fruits and vegetables, sugar, and saturated fat. We do that all
for you and teach you as we go.”

Clinically Tested Turbo10 Shows 3x Results

In a clinical study sponsored by Nutrisystem, those who followed Turbo10
lost 3x more weight, 3x more total body inches and 3x more body fat in
the first month compared to those who followed a do-it-yourself (DIY)
weight loss plan. In addition, as a benefit to losing weight, those on
Turbo 10 also significantly reduced their systolic blood pressure after
the first month.

“With Turbo10, we have a program that delivers customers the visible
results they want in just their first month of dieting. Our clinical
research shows we deliver significant weight loss results in as little
as one month and we’re pleased as studies have shown that early weight
loss is a predictor of long-term success,” said Nutrisystem Corporate
Dietitian Courtney McCormick, MPH, RDN, LDN.

50% of Nutrisystem® Foods Are New or Reformulated and Even Better for
You

This diet season, more than 50% of Nutrisystem® menu items are
new or reformulated to be even better — and contain no artificial
colors, flavors or sweeteners. Whole grains were also increased in a
large number of our foods to aim to have at least 50% of the grains
coming from whole grain sources. All Nutrisystem® plans continue
to meet the USDA guidelines for fat, saturated fat, trans fat,
cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, and protein.

Nutrisystem® Uniquely Yours Is the Ultimate in Flexibility and
Customization

In keeping with customer demand for more fresh-frozen selections, Uniquely
Yours
allows for ultimate flexibility in food choices, allowing
consumers to choose between grab-and-go and fresh frozen menu options,
with no restrictions, from more than 150 menu items.

Customers add in fresh ingredients daily including 1 to 2 SmartCarbs and
3 PowerFuels. SmartCarbs are carbohydrates that are high in fiber,
helping them to measure lower on the Glycemic Index and keep the
customer feeling full. SmartCarbs include foods like whole grains and
fruits. PowerFuels are lean proteins and healthy fats, like lean meats,
low-fat dairy, and nuts. Unlimited non-starchy vegetables may be added
with a goal of at least four servings per day. Vegetables add fiber to
the diet, as well as many important vitamins, minerals, and
phytonutrients.

Nutrisystem® meals and snacks, plus the fresh grocery additions,
deliver a nutritionally balanced meal that aligns with government
dietary recommendations. All plans can be customized to specific dietary
needs and preferences including the Nutrisystem®
program for people living with Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.

Updated NuMi® by Nutrisystem App for Diet Season 2016

Since April of 2014, NuMi
by Nutrisystem has provided an easy-to-use, interactive and personalized
solution to the nutritional and emotional components of a weight loss
journey, giving users the help they need, when and where they need it
most. The NuMi app is available to Nutrisystem customers as well as the
general population of do-it-yourself dieters for free.

Key features include dining out recommendations, recipes, activity
suggestions and burned calories tracking, a daily progress tracker, and
Moments – a proprietary logging of victories, wobbles, and slip-ups to
stay on the weight loss track.

For Nutrisystem customers, the NuMi app is a seamless companion complete
with a barcode scanner for easy tracking, a newsfeed offering daily
tips, inspiration and videos from The Leaf plus thousands
of recipes and restaurant recommendations that fit into the Nutrisystem
plan. The app syncs with Fitbit®, Apple Health®, Jawbone® and more and
is available for download at the iTunes
App Store
and Google
Play
.

“We know dieters want easy-to-use solutions that provide the guidance
they need no matter where they are. That’s exactly what NuMi does,” said
Krausz. “It fits perfectly with our Nutrisystem plans, but also offers a
solution for those who want to diet on their own.”

Brand-new, Fresh, Contemporary Packaging

For Diet Season 2016, the Company is unveiling new product packaging
that is more contemporary and health-oriented with easy-to-understand
nutritional labels calling out calories, fats, fiber, and protein. The
new packaging can be seen at NutrisystemNews.com.

Nutrisystem Expands into New Heart Healthy Segment with DASH Diet

Nutrisystem, well known for its diabetic program, is expanding its
health segment offerings to include a DASH diet compliant plan. The DASH
diet has ranked as the #1 Overall Diet by US News & World Report
for five years in a row and is recommended by the USDA, the National
Institutes of Health (NIH), and the American Heart Association (AHA).

In the clinical study, the Nutrisystem DASH plan was compared to a
do-it-yourself (DIY) DASH group following the NIH DASH reduced calorie
meal plan. Results showed the Nutrisystem DASH group lost 3x more weight
in the first month than those in the DIY DASH group.

“We appreciate an informed consumer and went the extra mile to configure
a plan that actually exceeds the results of one of the most widely
recommended diets,” emphasized Zier. “Nutrisystem is all about results
and we continuously challenge ourselves to make sure we’re a true leader
in weight loss efficacy. It’s a claim we take seriously because we know
it matters to our consumers who are counting on us for results.”

New Advertising

The Nutrisystem 2016 Diet Season campaign will be marked by several
integrated marketing and advertising campaigns involving television,
digital, print, radio, and social channels with an emphasis on
direct-to-consumer marketing. Last year, Zier was named Target
Marketing Direct Marketer of the Year
. A sneak peek of one of
several Nutrisystem 2016 Diet Season advertising campaign creative
treatments can be seen at NutrisystemNews.com.

As a leader in the weight loss space, Nutrisystem will continue its
dialogue around the role of positive reinforcement in fostering healthy
change. In the second half of 2015, Nutrisystem launched #NowBelieveIt,
a social media campaign that talked about compliments and the power of
positive feedback to address some of the issues that women — and notably
young women — often struggle with. The campaign garnered more than two
million views in a 4-week period and prompted a national dialogue. The
conversation will continue in 2016.

Retail Expansion Continues with More Kits, More Products, and More
Partners

In 2016, Nutrisystem will have its largest presence at retail ever with
a 25% increase in store counts and more products on the shelves. New
varieties of the 5-Day Nutrisystem® kit and the wildly successful Fast
5+ kit, along with a half dozen new individual products, will be on
shelves in stores nationwide in time for Diet Season.
