eDiets.com® Extends Subscription Period for Rights Offering to Stockholders

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - eDiets.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: DIET), announced today that it has extended the subscription period for its pending rights offering to May 13, 2011.

As the Company was advised that some qualified holders of its common stock have requested additional time to complete their subscriptions, the Company has decided to extend the subscription period for two additional days. The subscription rights may now be exercised at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. New York time on May 13, 2011.

Under the terms of the rights offering, each stockholder received one non-transferable subscription right for each share of common stock owned on April 18, 2011, the record date. Each subscription right entitles the rights holder to purchase 0.15 newly issued shares of the Company's common stock at a subscription price equal to $0.4125 per share. Each subscription right also includes an over-subscription privilege, by which rights holders that fully exercise their basic subscription privileges may purchase additional shares of common stock that remain unsubscribed at the expiration of the rights offering. The over-subscription privilege is subject to the availability and pro rata allocation of shares among exercising rights holders.

During the extended offering period for the rights offering, any person who received subscription rights from the Company during the original offering period may exercise those rights that have not already been exercised. Other than the extension of the expiration date of the rights offering, all of the offering terms described in the prospectus dated April 21, 2011 remain the same and apply during the extended period of the rights offering.

Questions from stockholders regarding the rights offering or requests for additional copies of documents may be directed to the information agent, Phoenix Advisory Partners, toll-free at (877) 478-5038.

The rights offering will be made only by means of a prospectus. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
