TrimTalk™ Weight-Loss Coaching Program Offers Live Emotional Support to Consumers Following Any Diet and Fitness Plan on the Market

Company's Telephone and Internet-Based Emotional Support Program Provides the Supplemental Motivation, Inspiration and Expert Advice Health Seekers Need to Achieve and Maintain Weight-Loss Goals

STUART, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 10, 2006 -- TrimTalk™, a leading provider of live-remote, expert-based weight-loss coaching and emotional support services, today announced the advent of three distinct program options all structured around a fundamental support system -- a key, but often missing or underserved, component of any weight-loss plan. The company's core "Coaching Support" program offers expert guidance and encouragement via weekly one-on-one toll-free telephone sessions with a professional weight-loss coach. This "plug-and-play" service can be utilized by everyone -- those following any structured diet and/or fitness program on the market as well as those who are self-directed.

A subscription-based service, TrimTalk simply and effectively offers its members convenient, direct access to live professionals along with common sense diet and fitness tools to help foster their success over both the short and long term. The company's experienced and specially trained team of weight-loss coaches are accessible to members from 6 a.m. through midnight Eastern Time, seven days per week.

For those who seek professional weight-loss guidance beyond emotional support and motivation, TrimTalk's "Coaching+1" programs bundle all benefits offered with its baseline Coaching Support program with the member's choice of either one of three proprietary 28-day personalized nutrition plans -- General Weight-Loss, Heart-Healthy and The Ram Nut Diet™ -- or its proprietary customized fitness plan that includes a free pedometer. Consumers may also opt for TrimTalk's complete "Coaching+2" Personalized Nutrition & Fitness plan that bundles live weight-loss coaching and tailor-made meal plans with the customized exercise regime.

"Our company was founded on the premise of offering everyone and anyone convenient, cost-effective access to comprehensive diet and fitness support, motivation and guidance based on their unique needs and schedules," notes TrimTalk founder and CEO Leonard J. Ram, MD, a medical board certified gastroenterologist and nutrition specialist. "No matter what diet or fitness program is being followed, our members benefit from direct dial, voice-to-voice access to an on-staff team of credentialed specialists in a variety of weight loss practice areas and fields, including nutrition, fitness and psychology."

Dr. Ram continues, "TrimTalk's distinctive service has filled the untapped void between high cost drive-to weight loss centers, which often involve embarrassing public discussions and weigh-ins, and impersonal weight-loss web sites. Indeed, our one-of-a-kind service represents a new breed of diet programs that strive to better meet the needs of today's discerning, somewhat jaded, and 'serially unsuccessful' dieter. Our marriage of traditional one-on-one diet coaching methodology with modern demand for convenience, accessibility and anonymity is a new industry paradigm, and we're thrilled to be leading the charge."

Through November 30th, 2006 all new TrimTalk member registrations will receive an additional week of service completely free of charge. Consumers can take advantage of this limited-time offer through the company's Web site located at
