Janet Jackson is showing off her new Nutrisystem body to America in an effort to continue promoting the weight loss system. The new commercial features the “after” results of Janet’s adherence to the diet, which consists of pre-packaged meals and fresh foods added in by its followers.
The campaign, which began late last year, featured Janet admitting that she’d failed at maintaining her famous figure. At the time she claimed that Nutrisystem helped keep her on track to losing ten pounds so far and would help her lose the rest. Now, many months later, she’s noticeably thinner and is, of course, crediting the plan for her progress. From USA Today:
“I’m not viewing this as a diet,” she told USA TODAY’s Nanci Hellmich at the time. “I’m not putting a number on it. I don’t look at the scale. I’m going about it in a different way this time.” She doesn’t need to lose “a great amount,” she said, adding that she would stop “when I feel good about it.”
But Is anyone convinced that Janet is actually using Nutrisystem to lose weight? Not to be a total cynic, but it’s hard to believe that anyone that wealthy who has had such a public struggle with her weight would do anything but hire professionals to give her the one-on-one attention that we all dream of when it comes to the battle of the bulge. Nutrisystem may work just fine, but does her endorsement ring true? Take a look at the new commercial and weigh in:
