FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --, Inc. (Nasdaq: DIET), leveraging the power of the Internet to bring diet, fitness and healthy lifestyle solutions to everyone, today announced results for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2008 were $8.8 million, compared to $8.4 million in the prior year period. Net income (loss) for the quarter was $(5.1) million, or $(0.20) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2008, compared to $(1.3) million, or $(0.05) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2007.

Adjusted EBITDA*, defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, severance charges and loss on disposition of assets, for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 was $(3.5) million compared to ($0.5) million in the prior year period.

First Quarter 2008 and Subsequent Highlights:

-- Hired Thomas Hoyer as Chief Financial Officer in March 2008

-- Launched alli(R) meal delivery program with GlaxoSmithKline

-- Debuted new creative for direct response TV campaign

-- Achieved over 600% increase in Q1 2008 meal delivery revenues from

prior year period

-- Signed seven B2B contracts year-to-date

"We started the first quarter with strong momentum in our meal delivery business, but ended the quarter with a disappointing performance due to two main issues," stated President and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Rattner. "The migration to our new technology platform temporarily affected our operational abilities and inaccurate forecasting of our expanding fresh food meal delivery program led to larger than expected increases in meal delivery expenses. We have taken immediate action to rectify these issues, including hiring a new technology implementation partner and streamlining our supply chain for meal delivery. We are confident in the foundation that we are building and will continue to lay the groundwork for long-term sustainable growth. Additionally, our largest shareholder Prides Capital continues to pledge their support and intends to provide the funding necessary to achieve our goals."

Outlook reiterated previously issued 2008 guidance of approximately $50 million in revenue and a blended gross margin of 49% for the year. This guidance reflects the anticipated benefits and operating leverage from the new integrated technology platform, accelerated growth of the B2B business and the expansion of the meal delivery program, as well as cross-selling opportunities.
