Brand New Reality Series Follows the Emotional Journey of Five Friends as They Attempt to Go From 'Fat' to 'Fit' on DietTribe Premiering January 5th on Lifetime Television

Five Episode, Hour-Long Series Features Fitness Trainer JESSIE PAVELKA and Psychotherapist STACY KAISER

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10 -- Lifetime Television kicks off 2009 with the all new reality series DietTribe, charting the journey of five best friends who have made a commitment to lose their unwanted pounds together. With the help of professional fitness trainer Jessie Pavelka and psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser, each woman will change her eating and exercise habits over the course of 3 months and confront the issues that caused her to gain weight initially. The five-episode, one hour-long series premieres on Monday, January 5 at 10:00pm ET/PTon Lifetime.

"The DietTribe concept is unique in that it explores how the very friendships that enable us to make poor eating and lifestyle choices can be the same friendships that encourage healthier ways of living," said JoAnn Alfano, Executive Vice President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks. "The five ladies of DietTribe are relatable to our viewers because they continue to lead their real lives while at the same time supporting each other through a program of healthier eating, exercise and emotional well-being."

ABOUT DIETTRIBE

Close friends Anna Lloyd (30, Pasadena, CA), Lydia Moody (26, Los Angeles, CA), Megan Stewart (29, Anaheim, CA), Shawna McClellan (27, Anaheim, CA) and Morgan Lancaster (31, Monrovia, CA) have stuck together through thick and thin, sharing a strong bond that has lasted for many years.

In recent months, they have come face-to-face with an uncomfortable truth - that their lifestyles and their friendship have resulted in unhealthy weight gains. In DietTribe, each woman has her own reason for wanting to lose weight but all have one common goal - to look their very best at Anna's upcoming wedding.

Over the course of 90 days, Anna, Lydia, Megan, Shawna and Morgan will try to turn their poor habits into healthy choices by attempting to lose 30 pounds or more with the help of trainer Jessie Pavelka and therapist Stacy Kaiser. Through the course the series, cameras follow the tight-knit group as they deal with real life temptations, struggle to stay on track through the toughest work-outs of their lives and face the scale each week to see how far they have come both mentally and physically.
