FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. -- January 31, 2013

Nutrisystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRI), the leading home delivery weight loss
program for men and women, has identified "Super Monday" -- the Monday after
the final football game of the season -- as one of the biggest dieting
decision days of the year. Based on the Company's proprietary data, there is
historically a post-game rally to inquire about the Nutrisystem® Men's Program
from men (and sometimes their wives and girlfriends) looking to kick start
weight loss.

In response to the demand, football legend and hall of fame quarterback Dan
Marino and former football entertainment reporter, Jillian Barberie Reynolds,
are encouraging people to lose weight and stay fit as they both have on the
Nutrisystem Program. As part of the motivational “Super Monday” campaign,
Nutrisystem is launching a “Pledge to Lose” contest with a chance to win the
Nutrisystem® program for one year, autographed Dan and Jillian memorabilia and
a grand prize of an all-inclusive trip for two to the Bahamas. Anyone can
enter by “liking” the Company’s Facebook page and completing an entry form
starting today and joining the pledge to lose
(http://www.facebook.com/Nutrisystem).

According to Nutrisystem, which is a leader in diet plans for men, Monday is
the biggest diet decision day of the week and Mondays after holiday weekends
are even bigger. Game day for the final football game of the season has become
a national holiday of sorts and, for millions of Americans, hitting the scale
the day-after can be a real wake-up call.

Four-time Super Bowl champion and legendary Hall of Fame quarterback,Terry
Bradshaw, who lost 32 pounds* on Nutrisystem, says, "It makes perfect sense.
You go for the chips, you go long for the guacamole and you just keep going.
Then, you wake up the next day and think, 'Man, I gotta do something I know
will work. I need a winning game plan.'”

Marinoadded, "This is the time of year I get the most questions about
Nutrisystem. I am thrilled we are going to seize the moment and help people
turn the motivation to lose weight into an action plan."

Nutrisystem is guaranteed to work**, even when other diets have failed with
90% of customers who stayed on the program surveyed agreeing that the
Nutrisystem® SUCCESS® program is easier to follow than other weight loss
programs they have tried or dieting on their own. In a 2009 customer survey
conducted by the National Business Research Institute for Nutrisystem, it was
reported that customers lost an average of 43% more weight than dieting on
their own. Four out of five customers surveyed agreed that Nutrisystem SUCCESS
worked better than any other program they've tried and would recommend the
program over another weight loss program they’ve tried.

**The Company offers a 14-day risk free, money back guarantee allowing
customers to try the food for 14 days. If they don’t like it for any reason,
they can return unused non-frozen food and get a full refund. Nutrisystem even
pays for return shipping.

“Let’s be honest, girls watch the game too and we eat and drink at the
parties. The day after can be humbling for all of us. Dan and I are psyched to
be encouraging people to diet with us this year,” said Jillian Barberie
Reynolds, who in her 40’s lost 30 pounds* on Nutrisystem and can still rock a
bikini.

The Nutrisystem Men's Program launched in 2006 in response to a gap in
commercial weight loss programs for men. Nutrisystem pioneered the first
commercial weight loss program tailored for men complete with home meal
delivery right to their door. A low Glycemic Index (low GI), high protein diet
curbs hunger and helps maintain lean muscle mass.

Marino, who lost 22 pounds* on the program and has been a Nutrisystem for Men
spokesperson for more than five years, shares, "Nutrisystem sends great
tasting food directly to my door. I just heat and eat."

Since the first Nutrisystem men's order was placed, Nutrisystem has helped men
lose an estimated 24 million pounds or roughly the equivalent of 95,230 NFL
players at an average weight of 252 pounds.
