Highlight of Business Operations: Nutrisystem is currently operating primarily in the U.S. and Canada. Gallup surveys indicate that approximately 42% of the people in the U.S., or an estimated 96 million were dieting during 2008. Of those people, approximately 56 million were attempting to lose weight and 40 million were attempting to maintain their weight. Approximately 8% participated in commercial weight loss programs and 56% conducted some form of self-directed diet. We believe the Nutrisystem program is well positioned to attract both types of dieters.
Our food items have accounted for 99% of our revenues for each of the years ended December 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
