Diet blogs make waves for new weight loss methods

Diet.com provides diet blogs for dieters to share their personal weight loss journey

BOSTON, October 18, 2006— Diet.com has recently seen a surge in popularity of blogging on its website among members by providing an open forum to share personal weight-loss efforts.

Diet.com allows all users to publish their own blog on topics they create themselves. The blogs provide a safe place for members to rant, vent and get support from others. Diet.com also features hundreds of expert blogs, written by fitness professionals, nutritionists, diet experts and healthy eating enthusiasts.

Being a part of a diet community has been proven as an effective means to aid weight-loss efforts. The communication between members of Diet.com has increased, creating unique personal relationships.

"Our members have responded with great enthusiasm in regards to being able to create their own blogs," says Mike Zhang, president and CEO of Diet Health. "We hope it will provide another means of support for members to share their experiences within the Diet.com community."

A recent study in the British Medical Journal suggests people are more likely to stick to a weight-loss program when it is done in a group. The internet provides convenience for people who are constantly busy and trying to multitask. The personalized blogs provide a community forum for those trying to diet so they do not feel alone.

Diet.com is an online weight loss destination site that offers an active user-driven support community along with a lifestyle-based weight loss program. It was the first major online diet company that took the initiative to offer podcasting. The website currently features free expert advice and diet tools through boards, daily blogs, diet podcasting, and other community channels.
