Soap Opera Star Genie Francis Reveals 40-pound Weight Loss on Nutrisystem

Guía de Regalos

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Daytime television star, Genie Francis, is kicking off the New Year
having conquered her dieting
demons after a lifelong battle with her weight. The beloved soap opera
actress recently revealed that she lost 40 pounds on Nutrisystem
(NASDAQ: NTRI),
a leading provider of weight management products and services, and feels
better than ever.

Francis began her weight
loss
journey with Nutrisystem in September 2014 and has continued to
reach milestone after milestone. Now 40 pounds down, Francis feels like
she has a new lease on life.

“Dieting began for me at such a young age. When I was 14, they put my
character Laura on a diet. It set off a whole pattern for me with crazy
starvation dieting,” said Francis. “Nutrisystem is livable and for once
I am not suffering or starving myself to achieve my weight loss goals.
The best thing about the program is that I’m more at peace with food
than I have ever been in my lifetime.”

Francis’ most recent weight loss success has her feeling more like her
old self. She admits to having more confidence, doesn’t dread getting
dressed or being on camera, and has much more energy.

Francis also plans to continue her healthy lifestyle with Nutrisystem
and wants to lose even more weight.

“I’ve learned portion control and the right foods to eat to keep my body
feeling full and energized. The fact that I can eat the foods I love on
Nutrisystem helps satisfy my cravings making me less vulnerable to
trigger foods. The approach keeps my nutrition on track.”

Francis is one of several other aspirational and relatable brand
ambassadors who have successfully lost weight with Nutrisystem including
singer and actress, Marie Osmond, who lost 50 pounds; Hall of Fame
quarterback, Dan Marino, who lost 22 pounds; and actress and director,
Melissa Joan Hart, who lost 40 pounds.

Francis can be seen in Nutrisystem commercials nationwide this Diet
Season.
