NUTRI/SYSTEM ISSUES RESPONSE TO FTC WEIGHT LOSS INDUSTRY ADVERTISING

 BLUE BELL, Pa., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was issued today by Nutri/System:
 Nutri/System has and will continue to cooperate with the FTC in regulating weight loss advertising. We have been a leader in requesting that the FTC adopt industry-wide standards for advertising compliance for the thousands of companies that make weight loss claims. This is the only way to eliminate inconsistencies and inequities in advertising regulation and to help distinguish safe and effective comprehensive weight management programs like ours from disreputable weight loss alternatives. Nutri/System, advertising standards are among the highest in the industry and we and other reputable weight loss companies welcome advertising standards that benefit the consumer.
