A Quickie Book Review and Giveaway!

So, how is that weight loss resolution going for ya?  You know, that resolution you made about 60 days ago?  To lose weight and start eating a cleaner, healthier diet?   What's that you say?  What resolution?

Yeah, me, too.   *sigh*

It's pretty typical to hear about diet failures around the first of March.  Most people start out great and with good intentions on New Year's Day, and then backslide their way into spring. 

Last year, I did a 3 week blog review of the Perfect 10 Diet program.  You can read about it here or by clicking the 'perfect 10' tag in the tag cloud at the very bottom of this site.  I can't claim success, since, well... I'm still fat.   But the program makes 'perfect sense'.  Really. 

The Perfect 10 Diet  isn't like the typical popular diets.  The main goal of Perfect 10 is to balance the body's 10 key hormones:  Insulin, Glucagon, Leptin, Human Growth Hormone, Thyroid, Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, DHEA, and Cortisol.  The claim is that once all the hormones are balanced, the body's natural reaction will be perfect health-good metabolism, weight loss, and it's anti-aging to boot.   

Woo hoo!  Sounds great, doesn't it?

The Perfect 10 Diet has three stages.  Here is a very basic description:
Stage 1 is for weight loss.  You eat five times a day-no grains, no alcohol. 
Stage 2 is ongoing weight loss.  You add 1 to 3 servings of whole grains.
Stage 3 is lifetime maintenance.  Up your whole grains to 3-4 servings a day.  Occasional sweets.

The key to this diet is clean eating.  No sugar, no processed foods.  Real foods.  Whole foods.

The Perfect 10 website is packed with information to help you on your journey.  They also have a Facebook page where you can go for support, share recipes, or ask questions.

I know it's hard; it's terribly hard for this processed food-lovin' girl.  After spending a little time on this program, I think this really is the answer to America's obesity problem.

The  public relations people at Perfect 10 sent me a couple of extra copies of the book to share in whatever way I choose.  I decided to donate one to the public library.  The other is up for grabs, right here, right now.

I'm calling this the Review Week Giveaway.  Just leave a comment here on this post or on my Facebook wall.  Heck, you can even tweet me and say, "Enter me in the Perfect 10 Review Week Giveaway."

No need to visit a website, follow my blog or friend me on Facebook, or any of that.  Although, I won't stop you if you do.  (Always like to find new blogging, tweeting, Facebooking friends.)
Simple as that.

I'll gather up all the wall posts, comments, and tweets and choose the winner via random drawing on Saturday night, March 5th, at 10:00 pm.  Winner will be notified immediately.

This giveaway is open to US residents only, 18 years of age or older.

That's only 3 days, so enter now.  If you've been thinking about making some changes, here's your chance to try a new way of eating.  FREE.

*Disclosure--I was given an extra copy of this book to share with a friend.  I decided on my own to use it as a giveaway item here on my blog.  I was originally given a copy of this book and diet support paperwork in May, 2010 in exchange for participating in a 3 week trial and an honest blog review.  I received no compensation for this post or any other post about Perfect 10 Diet, other than the actual books mentioned.
