Melissa Joan Hart just got an exciting new role. The “Melissa & Joey” star has been named the new spokesperson for the diet plan Nutrisystem.

“I love working with Nutrisystem,” Hart tells ET Online. “The program is really delivering results for me and I look forward to long term success, staying motivated and helping others do the same.”

Nutrisystem’s Chief Marketing Officer Keira Krausz says the company is “thrilled to be helping and working with Melissa.” Nutrisystem feels that Hart “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,” Nutrisystem says. “We think dieters are savvier than ever and really appreciate someone who — above all else — is relatable.”
