And Now For Why you really clicked on my post.....---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Okay, so I'm not really very good at keeping up with the big Hollywood stars, the latest trends in fashion or food, or the big reality shows that are all the talk in gossip magazines (except for Survivor). In fact, it took me until just last year to finally know who the heck The Kardashians were! I kind of liked it better when I didn't know.
But when I was contacted about doing a giveaway for Rocco DiSpirito's newest Now Eat This! Diet! cookbook, I was wondering who this Rocco guy was. As with most things, a few minutes of googling usually gives me enough information to be well educated on anything. I checked out this Rocco guy and his culinary skills, recipes, and diet and I thought this sounded like a pretty cool giveaway indeed! He's actually an award winning celebrity chef! And he's not bad looking so a cookbook with his face on the cover might just be a lovely addition to my kitchen shelves and a motivation for me in "researching recipes" for my family. Ha! Seriously, Check out the cover:
Here's another picture of Mr. DiSpirito
So What Exactly Is This Giveaway All About? Two of you will win one of these Healthy- Diet Exclusive Cookbooks. Signed by Rocco DiSpirito! (I'm a big fan of signed copies of books!) And Yes, more than one winner! This cookbook is the Now Eat This! Diet by Rocco Dispirito. Here's the picture again (just imagine his signature inside):
My first question for myself in deciding whether or not run a giveaway for something I know little about is:
Will my readers like this giveaway? Yes! There are a lot of moms, athletes, single dads, etc. who like to cook, and are trying to live a healthier life who could really benefit from this book and diet! Lots of people out there like me too. People who are unmotivated to cook and need some major direction! I know I am always eager to be motivated in the kitchen! In fact, I only have one cook book and could REALLY use some inspiration!
Here is a bit more information I was given for you to read to see what you're playing for:
This cookbook embraces the belief that going on a diet doesn't mean that you have to necessarily give up all your favorite foods! Who wants a diet/life style like that? Not me! Award-winning celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito changed his life and his health without giving up the foods he loves and he wants to share his success with us! (How nice of him huh?) He lost more than 20lbs, participated in dozens of triathlons, and after an inspirational role as a guest chef on The Biggest Loser, he changed his own diet and the caloric content of classic dishes that so many love. In this book he offers readers a 2-week program for dropping 10 pounds quickly, with little effort, no deprivation, and while still eating 6 meals a day and the dishes they crave!
Here's how you can win your own signed copy of Now Eat This! Diet, signed by the cute guy on the cover, Rocco DiSpirito. You only have to give me one comment for all of these if you don't want to leave multiple ones.
- Comment on this post and tell me: What's motivating you to eat right this summer? (an upcoming vacation, to look cute in your bikini, to have more energy, etc.)
- Go to the Now Eat This! Diet Recipe App by clicking HERE or if that doesn't work enter: http://bit.ly/NETDAPP and tell me what recipe you think would help you the most.
