If you need a new loop cut:
In edit mode, press ctrl R to add a new loop cut. Then during edge slide press E which aligns the new loop to one of the adjacent face loops. F switches between face loops.

If a new edge loop is not needed:
Then select a edge loop alt RMB RMB. Press ctrl E > Edge Slide to start the edge sliding, then during edge slide press E which aligns the new loop to one of the adjacent face loops. F switches between face loops.

These are the options for edge slide as shown in the 3D view header. edge slide options

Also note that you can use GG instead of Ctrl E > Edge slide. –  gandalf3 Jul 30 at 4:13
