The finale of Season One aired Monday, February 2. Beginning February 9, the series will be repeated during its regular time slot, Mondays at 10 PM ET/PT on Lifetime Television.

"DietTribe revolves around a small group of close friends whose poor eating habits and lifestyle choices have left them overweight, unfulfilled and desiring a change. Through one another's support, they were able push each other to reach their weight loss goals and a renewed self-esteem. We think this series has great potential and is a great fit with our brand of celebrating and supporting women," said Alfano.
