NEW YORK, May 12 portionpals(R), an innovative weight-losstool is proud to announce it has hit the 1 million sales mark this pastSaturday, May 10th, in less than its first year of operation. portionpals(R)is fast becoming the "diet" alternative among consumers looking for a healthyway to lose weight. This "new kid on the block" is gaining market share in amulti-billion dollar industry with no national distribution channel.

Unlike other weight-loss programs, portionpals(R) doesn't require highstart-up costs or recurring monthly food fees. It takes the guesswork out ofeating by providing users with the exact USDA recommended servings for meat,poultry, fish, sides and desserts. The five silicone cutting board discs areeasy-to-use, microwavable and even dishwasher safe -- clearly makingportionpals(R) an industry favorite.

We credit our success with our consumers giving great word-of-mouth on ourproduct but have been blindsided with the overwhelming demand from majorcompanies in our wholesale division. We have drug, telecommunication, publicutilities, hospitals and even car companies ordering anywhere from 100 to100,000 units to give away to their employees or customers. We even had amajor sports team give away 15,000 at a game, says Mark Jackson ofportionpals(R).

"Although NOT a diet, the plan is to aid the consumer by giving them asimple guideline that is easily integrated into their overall lifestyle," saysportionpals(R) founder Paris D'Jon. "Our success has definitely been givingpeople the opportunity to eat the foods they love and therefore preventing theeffect of yo-yo dieting."
