Date:1/30/2008

BOSTON, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Thanks to Nutrition on the Go, an innovative new program from Diet.com, nutritional information for more than 36,000 menu items at more than 1,700 restaurants nationwide is available in a flash through your cell phone by texting DIET1 (34381) with a restaurant name and menu item.

By sending McDonald's Small French fries to DIET1 (34381), you will receive a text back with the following information: "McDonald's Small French Fries Cal 250, Fat 13g, Carb 30g, Protein 2g."

"Our Nutrition on the Go Service will be a great asset to millions of Americans who want to maintain a healthy diet when they're away from home," says Mike Zhang, President of Diet Health.

"Consumers come to Diet.com for practical weight loss solutions and information. By putting valuable nutritional information into the hands of consumers at the point of purchase, we are making it easier to make healthy decisions a
