About FoodFit

What is FoodFit?, part of The HealthCentral Network, was started in late 1998 in Washington, DC. Our mission then, and now, is to promote and enhance the health of consumers. By focusing on healthy eating and active living in the most credible and enjoyable ways is recognized as a national leader in its field—the destination for up-to-date information on good food and good health.

FoodFit did not achieve this goal alone. Since the beginning, we have worked closely with an unparalleled network of food, fitness and nutrition partners across the country to provide the personalized tools and reliable content that has set us apart. Our partners include top public health organizations and leading dietitians, fitness experts and chefs. We are also proud of our relationships with Yahoo! Health, DiscoveryHealth, and many more.

Among our most popular features are:

  • The FoodFit Tools: Four proprietary, interactive tools to assess your current health habits. The FoodFit Plan includes an additional set of six tools (see below)
  • A delicious database of 2,500 healthy, customizable recipes with in-depth nutritional analysis
  • Hundreds of suggestions for celebrating the foods of the season with our guide to seasonal foods and our "Season's Pick"
  • A Fitness section to help you get motivated, keep up on fitness trends and get information to help you create your own workouts

Building on this array of tools, recipes and guides, FoodFit introduced in November 2002 the FoodFit Plan, a premier service for subscribers. The FoodFit Plan features a Diet and Fitness Plan created specifically for FoodFit by the University of California, Davis Medical Center. Based on the latest scientific recommendations published by the National Academy of Sciences in September 2002, the Diet and Fitness Plan provides personalized diets with menu plans and chef-created recipes, and personalized fitness recommendations. The FoodFit Plan also includes FoodFit’s customized tools, recipes, tips and guides—all combined to help subscribers lose or maintain weight while eating great-tasting food.

As you can see, our team is passionate about healthy living—and we want to share our ideas and our solutions with you. We hope that you'll visit us often for support and advice while integrating healthful habits into your life. And if you've got any advice, please drop us a line at .
