Second Quarter 2008 and Subsequent Highlights:

-- Achieved over 280% increase in Q2 2008 meal delivery revenues from

prior year

-- Signed and launched co-branded meal delivery program with national

health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels of NBC's The Biggest Loser

-- Signed 8 B2B contracts and launched 5 B2B programs year-to-date

-- Signed new agreement with food supplier significantly improving

inventory control and reducing food costs

-- Appointed Laura Klein as Chief Information Officer in June 2008

"During the second quarter we intensely focused on improving our new enterprise platform," stated President and Chief Executive Officer, Steve Rattner. "These preparations culminated in the recent implementation of robust payment, billing and fulfillment functionality, as well as made it possible for the launch of two new B2B client programs and community features within the last week. We are pleased with this progress, although we expect that short term delays in B2B launches combined with the challenging macroeconomic conditions will defer the benefits and operating leverage from the new platform and previously expected growth of the B2B and meal delivery businesses to the 2009 diet season."

Thomas Hoyer, Chief Financial Officer commented, "Despite the challenging economic conditions, we are confident that recent enhancements to our overall business platform will enable us to achieve improvements in our operating performance in the third and fourth quarter compared to the second quarter based on the improvements we have made in our overall business platform during the second quarter. We continue to believe in the long-term opportunity for eDiet's integrated health and wellness platform, and are committed to fine tuning the platform and digital subscribers, meal delivery, and e-commerce businesses in order to best prepare for growth in the post-holiday diet season."
