Three (3) Consecutive Quarters of Profit for HealthRite, Inc.

HealthRite's Chairman of the Board, Bradley T. MacDonald, announces, "HealthRite, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: HLRT) has made three (3) consecutive quarters of profit since September 30, 1999. Since liquidating its unprofitable Montana Naturals Subsidiary, the company has improved the equity position over this period from ($1,086,000) to $217,117; an improvement of $1.3 million in nine (9) months. The company also liquidated over $6 million of debt and other liabilities consolidating the business around its Medifast™ weight management product line. Profits year-to-date through June 30, 2000 equate to $492,728 attributable to common shareholders."

Wooden & Benson, Chartered, the company's independent auditors, have issued an internal report to the Board of Directors and stated, "Based upon the scenarios described by management and assuming the present sales trends continue or improve and that cost reductions continue to be realized, it is our opinion that we will not need to modify our report on the company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ending December 31, 2000 for going concern issues."

The Internet strategy offering physicians, medical practitioners, and patients within the Medifast™ network a direct link to has been a terrific success and has provided better service to its customers. attained almost 1,000,000 hits with patients spending an average of more than 8 minutes visiting the site. Abandoning a retail strategy that has ravaged the nutraceutical industry and focusing on direct physician and patent relationships has returned the company to profitability and improved margins to over 50%. Over the next six (6) months, the company will focus on growing "profitable revenues" now that it has a stable Board of Directors and management team in place with superior technology and Internet infrastructure to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.
