HORSHAM, Pa., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nutrisystem, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTRI), a leading provider of weight management programs, products and services, has partnered with fitness expert, Leslie Sansone, to offer consumers striving for a late-summer shape up, some easy, top-of-mind tips to keep healthy eating, heart rates and pedometers pumping all month long.
According to Sansone, there are many great, convenient ways to kick-start a personal exercise plan and stay motivated. Variety is often the key to helping weight loss and shape up efforts stick. However, there is also a wrong way to lose weight and consumers often attempt to drastically cut calories while working out obsessively, which can lead to 'yo-yo' dieting and the weight loss patterns that go hand-in-hand with these behaviors.

"I am thrilled to be working with Nutrisystem and have the opportunity to offer people the basic, one-step-at-a-time, tips to start a walking routine and attain the health rewards that come from Walking Our Way!"
