This is Why You're Fat: Book Giveaway


Who doesn't love a book that tells you that you'll be able to "eat more, cheat more, lose more - and keep the weight off"?  That's the promise of This Is Why You're Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever) by Jackie Coleman.  I'll be reviewing the book and trying out the program soon for myself, but in the meantime, I have a giveaway so you can do it along with me!  There are THREE copies to be given away away to some lucky winners.  

Summary:
"Being fat isn't your fault; staying fat is." That's what Jackie Warner, America's favorite no-nonsense celebrity fitness trainer tells her own clients, and that's why no one delivers better results than Jackie does. Now for the first time, Jackie shares her revolutionary program, showing readers the best ways to drop pounds and inches fast, without grueling workouts or deprivation, and keep them off for good! Her two-tiered approach provides a complete nutritional makeover and a failure-proof condensed workout routine PLUS all the emotional support and encouragement you need to get to the finish line and beyond."
Mandatory Entry:  Leave a comment on why you want to lose weight, if you've seen Jackie on Work Out, how you do healthy cheating on your diet (I give myself a day or two of cheating each week), or something else related to weight loss.  Once for this entry.

Additional Entries: (please leave a comment each time you do)
  • Follow me on Google Friend Connect (+2) (or leave me a note that you already follow) - leave 2 comments
  • Blog about it! (+4) - leave me a link and 4 comments
  • Tweet or Facebook It! - Leave a link for each time.
  • Like my Facebook page. (+2)  (or leave me a note that you already are) - leave 2 comments

The  giveaway will run from Monday 4/19/2010 until 11:59 PM PST Friday 4/30/2010. Open to US and Canadian Residents 13+.  No P.O. Boxes please.  Void where prohibited.  Please make sure your email is available in your post or in your profile.  Good luck!
Disclaimer: I was given a free copy of the book from the Hachette Book Group, who is also graciously hosting this giveaway.

Hi nessa,
I want to loose weight! I have had health issues for the past year which helped me pack on 60 pounds! Now that I have had surgery, I am ready to re-start my life and become healthier. I hope I win. I need all the guidance I can get!

Mandatory Entry...why I want to lose weight. I have a list of 100 Reasons to Lose 100 Pounds on my blog, but for here will just say that I want to be around for a long time for my kids. I want to give them a good example and do all I can to keep them from having to fight this same battle when they grow up.

KDC Events said...

I need to lose weight so I can keep up with my children! I have struggled with weight after each pregnancy. Now that I am DONE having kids, I need to get this weight off for good so I can run and play with them!

I like to do the vegan thing through the week then cheat with lean protein on the weekends.

Diana said...

I love Jackie! I'd love a book like this. I cheat every Friday, practically like clockwork. It's the only day I allow myself to have homefries at work.

Diana said...

crossstitcher said...

I forgot to post why I want to lose weight - I have lost 25 pounds since October. I want to lose 55 more - I am hoping to to get off some medicines and be more healthy -

The program I follow is called Travis Martin's Thrive! and we get 100 days a year that we can have what we want. I find I don't cheat as much though because I feel so good that I don't want to!

Teresa Caldwell said...

I haven't been able to lose my baby weight and have been adding to it for the last 3 years, sounds like a book that might get me motivated to lose weight!
