Signed Rocco Dispirito Cookbook GIVEAWAY

I don’t know about you, but I think Rocco is pretty YUMMY.


**Rocco has hooked me up with 4 signed copies of Now Eat This! Diet to give away to my readers!!**

Going on a diet does not necessarily mean saying farewell to all of your favorite foods! Award-winning celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito changed his life and his health-without giving up the foods he loves or the flavor. He has lost more than 20 pounds, participated in dozens of triathlons, and-after an inspirational role as a guest chef on The Biggest Loser-changed his own diet and the caloric content of classic dishes on a larger scale. In NOW EAT THIS! DIET, complete with a foreword by Dr. Mehmet Oz, DiSpirito offers readers a revolutionary 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, like mac & and ; cheese, meatloaf, BBQ pork chops, and chocolate malted milk shakes. The secret: Rocco’s unique meal plans and his 75 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snack time, all with zero bad carbs, zero bad fats, zero sugar, and maximum flavor. Now readers can eat more and weigh less-it’s never been so easy!

Head to, Barnes And Noble, Books-A-Million,Borders, HastingsPowell’s or Tower Records to get your copy and don’t worry about getting it messy in the kitchen cooking 6 meals a day because you can win a pristine hand signed copy direct from Rocco himself! 

Whether you’re chosen as a lucky winner or not, Rocco shares exclusive healthy tips from his latest cookbook and recipes from his Twitter account so be sure to 
follow him @RoccoDiSpirito. Also, feel free to use the hashtag “#choose2lose” on Twitter if directing to the contest!

    Giant Sis says:

    My motivation is that I just want to be healthier. i guess it's purely selfish – I'm not doing it for anyone else (but when has that ever worked for me?) I am happier with myself when I’m at a healthier weight – it’s just so hard for me to STAY there, you know? I want to enjoy life more and part of that is having a better self-image and I can get that by losing some weight (again).
