General Hospital 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, 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.
