eDiets.com, Inc. (OTCBB:EDET), the world’s leading subscription-based online diet center, today announced a joint venture with Unislim Limited, a leading weight-management company based in Ireland. The new company, eDiets Europe Limited (eDiets Europe), began marketing eDiets’ personalized diet programs to UK consumers in April 2001 via its Internet site www.eDietsUK.co.uk.

eDiets.com also announced that eDiets Europe began a marketing partnership to promote eDiets with Taste Network Limited – a joint venture between J Sainsbury plc, a leading supermarket chain in the UK and Carlton Communications plc, a major European media company. Through this partnership, the eDiets program will be marketed both online and through broadcast television throughout the UK and Ireland in 2001.

“Today we have eDiets members from over 30 countries accessing our US Web site,” said David Humble, chairman and CEO of eDiets US. “It’s a natural step for us to bring our service and support to participating consumers from these other countries, and in their native language. Launching our online diet programs throughout the UK and Ireland are only the first steps in our long range plan to become the world’s foremost nutritional advisor.”

“The launch of eDiets Europe has taken the UK weight-loss industry into the 21st century, and is intended to become an indispensable tool for the many millions of UK and Ireland-based consumers seeking to improve their diet and fitness going forward,” said Ciaran McCourt, CEO of eDiets Europe. “The UK is the world’s second largest weight-management market behind the US and, with Taste playing an integral role, we now deliver our online consumer benefits of personalization, convenience and privacy to this previously untapped marketplace – benefits that are difficult to replicate in conventional offline centers such as those popularized by WEIGHT WATCHERS® and other brick-and-mortar diet companies.”
