FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrisystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRI), a leading provider of weight management products and services, announced today the unveiling of its new summer/fall marketing campaign, featuring its newest brand ambassador Melissa Joan Hart, with spots beginning to air next week. The first television commercials feature Hart speaking openly about how magical the Nutrisystem® program is in helping her get back in shape after the birth of her third son, Tucker. Hart, 37, mother, actress, writer, producer, director and singer, discusses how she needed a program that was easy, convenient and worked with her busy schedule.

To date Hart has lost 30 pounds on the Nutrisystem program.

Hart has fans of all ages, many of whom remember her playing a likeable young witch who got what she wanted in a snap! Her love of Nutrisystem working like magic transforms her body right before the viewers' eyes. Within the new spot Hart also mentions that she gets to pick all her favorite meals that are delivered right to her door, are perfectly portioned and are ready in minutes. Hart's son Tucker even makes a couple adorable cameos in her new television spot. To view Hart's new spot please visit Nutrisystem's YouTube Channel .

"I had heard rave reviews about Nutrisystem.  My sister-in-law had great success with it and I decided that I had to try the program out for myself," said Hart. "It's easy and fits in perfectly with my busy life. I get to eat all the foods I love like pasta, burgers, chocolate and ice cream. Who knew that losing the weight and getting back into shape could taste so good!"

"We are excited about Melissa's new marketing campaign and hope that it will inspire others to want to lead healthier lives with the help of Nutrisystem," said Keira Krausz, Chief Marketing Officer at Nutrisystem. "She is such an inspirational role model and we are proud of her commitment to lose the weight, but more importantly to having a long-term healthier lifestyle."

This will be Hart's first product endorsement television commercial since she was a child. Hart is best known for her title roles in the television series Clarissa Explains It All (1991-94), the live action version of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (1996-2003) and is currently starring in the ABC Family comedy series Melissa & Joey (2010-present).
