About Us

Launched in late 2008, DietSpotlight.com is one of the web’s largest weight-loss resources, according to comScore Media Metrix. We are sponsored by the makers of Leptigen and Pronabolin. Though important to note our content is authored and edited by staff compensated by the makers of these two products, we don’t make a penny from a vast majority (99%+) of the visitors to the site.

Indeed, well over 10 million people per year use DietSpotlight.com completely free of charge, with no financial benefit to anybody. This is in line with our overarching mission of helping people live healthier lives. We’re able to create reviews, edit content and maintain the site because a small percentage of people opt to try Leptigen, Pronabolin or one of our other trusted partners.

We’re proud to say we’re one of the most-referenced diet-review sites on the web. Many Wikipedia entries, diet blogs and question-and-answer sites link to us, as do over 100 university websites, including professors who reference us in their research.

Also in alignment with our mission, we give away scholarships of up to $5000 per college student to exceptional men and women majoring in health-related fields.

Organizations we support:

Obesity Society      National Obesity Foundation

As you’ll see, we offer thousands of in-depth weight-loss reviews, as well as countless comments and questions from readers just like you. We invite you to comment on any diet or weight-loss products you may have tried, and to correct any reviews that may be out of date. Our staff tries to keep all diet reviews current, but sometimes we miss things, and we love it when readers help us. Please note we do moderate and edit the comments we receive.

Additionally, if you have a question about a diet product or weight-loss program, try posting the question on the product review. DietSpotlight’s readership is incredibly well informed and, if you get a reply, it will be emailed to you.

If you would like to contact a member of our team directly, please email support@dietspotlight.com.
