Melissa Joan Hart is the new face of weight loss diet firm Nutrisystem

Appearing in the ninth season of Dancing With The Stars seems to have had an amazing effect on Melissa Joan Hart. The former star of Sabrina the Teenage Witch was knocked out in the sixth round, but the strenuous dance routines have set her up for a new challenge – the face of diet company Nutrisystem. And she is so impressed with the weight loss company, that she has credited them with helping her to lose over 20lbs.

The TV stars showed off her enviable figure at The Incredible Burt Wonderstone premiere in March, and considering she only gave birth to her son Tucker in September, she herself looked incredible. Melissa said of the partnership: ‘I love working with Nutrisystem. The Program is really delivering results for me and I look forward to long term success, staying motivated and helping others do the same.’

She also took to her Twitter page to extol the virtues of the Nutrisystem company, and tweeted to her fans: ‘Shortly after welcoming baby Tucker, Hart told Us Weekly that she was staying active after giving birth by I’m losing weight & feeling gr8 w/ Nutrisystem already. It’s perfect 4 me. I’m so excited 2 B part of the @Nutrisystem family! #bodyafterbaby.’

Keira Krausz, Nutrisystem’s Chief Marketing Officer, added: ‘We are thrilled to be helping and working with Melissa. She mirrors our values and will resonate with our customers as authentic. Moving forward, you’ll see us have an appropriate mix of inspiring celebrities and real life customers who have also enjoyed success. We think dieters are savvier than ever and really appreciate someone who – above all else – is relatable.’

Melissa is a busy mum to three children now, and looks after her two older sons, seven-year-old Mason and five-year-old Braydon, as well as newborn Tucker.

She said: ‘I know a lot of people with newborn babies that stay at home with the baby. Maybe I’m a little selfish but I’m like, “I want to watch my son at hockey,” so I bundle up the baby and bring him in a car seat and bring him with me. I go through the extra effort to be with the older ones too!’
