MERRY CHRISTMAS everybody! I for one absolutely love this joyous time of year because everyone seems to be in an especially good mood. I don’t know if it’s all the seasonal smells, the uplifting music, or the time with family and friend reflecting on another year of life together. But there is great excitement in the air anticipating the glorious moment coming up this Saturday when we celebrate together with gift-giving and fellowship. It should be a fun occasion for all no matter who you are. So why should things be any different here at the “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog for the week of Christmas? You’re just as much a part of MY extended family since we share so intimately with each other here on a daily basis about the diet and health plan that has worked so well for us to make us healthier than we ever thought possible. With that in mind, I have compiled a few nice gifts and offers to share with you during this Christmas Week Mini-Giveaway Bonanza and I personally invite you to participate by sending me your name, U.S. mailing address, and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to enter to win. Deadline for entries is Friday, December 31, 2010 and the winners will be selected at random and mailed their prizes to kick off 2011 on the right foot! GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!
A couple of months ago, my podcast producer Kevin Kennedy-Spaien and I decided to create a place where listeners who love and appreciate the twice-weekly program featuring interviews with the top researchers, authors, and other professionals in the world of nutrition, fitness and health could obtain special behind-the-scenes access. We call it “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show Fan Club” and it allows you to both financially support the work we are doing providing quality content while getting some pretty nice perks, including:
- Transcripts of past interviews (new ones are being added weekly!)
- Preview audio clips from upcoming interviews yet to air
- The ability to ask questions of upcoming guests before the interview is recorded
- A social network of other low-carb/Paleo fans to share your thoughts with

It’s been about a year since I released my second book 21 Life Lessons From Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb and the response to my nearly 500-page sophomore release about how low-carb living is much more about health than weight loss has been tremendous.

But if you haven’t snagged your own copy yet, then I’ve got a special deal for you now through the end of 2010. Click here to get an autographed copy of 21 Life Lessons From Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb sent to you with FREE PRIORITY MAIL as well as an e-book copy of the book and my 2005 release Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: My Journey From Flabby Fat To Sensationally Skinny In One Year–for just $25!

Back in September I was so pleased to tell you about the new and improved Julian Bakery low-carb breads that are soy-free and taste as amazing as ever! For people who have missed bread on their healthy low-carb lifestyle, this Smart Carb bread has been a real godsend because it is packed with hunger-satisfying amounts of fiber (12g) and protein (12g) with just 1g net carb per slice. All it takes is a couple of slices of the Julian Bakery Smart Carb bread and you will feel confident that it fits perfectly within your healthy low-carb lifestyle. And for one lucky reader, you’ll get to experience that firsthand with a FREE TWO-MONTH SUPPLY OF JULIAN BAKERY SMART CARB BREAD! I keep a supply of this bread in my freezer and include it in my menus to make grilled cheese and even homemade pizza. It really is a high-quality, great-tasting low-carb bread!
With the new year upon us next Saturday, many people may be in the market for a new scale as we pursue weight loss in 2011. I’m a stickler for a reliable scale that will accurately portray my progress on my low-carb lifestyle. That’s where the EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale comes into play. My favorite features include the ability to simply “Step On” and get a reading rather than having to tap your foot on it first and wait for the scale to calibrate, the big digital numbers to the tenth of a pound, the bright cool blue backlight so I don’t have to squint to see the numbers, and so much more! I’ve enjoyed EatSmart scales for several years because of their affordable price and unique features. You can keep up-to-date with all of the latest products from EatSmart by joining their social media pages at Twitter and Facebook. One reader will receive a FREE EATSMART PRECISION DIGITAL BATHROOM SCALE of their own!
The Atkins diet made a huge comeback in 2010 thanks to the collaboration of three major low-carb scientists who decided it was time to update the work of the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins. Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Jeff Volek, and Dr. Stephen Phinney co-wrote and contributed to New Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight Fast and Feeling Great which released in March 2010. You can read my book review and listen to my podcast interview with Dr. Westman to learn more about some of the updated information that is included in this “new” version of Atkins. It was seven years ago at Christmastime that my mother-in-law gave me a copy of Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution, so I am hopeful that a similar awakening to the low-carb truth can happen in the lucky reader who will win a FREE AUTOGRAPHED COPY of The New Atkins For A New You with signatures from Dr. Phinney and Dr. Westman. What a fantastic way to start your own Atkins/low-carb lifestyle on the right foot come January!
Don’t forget to send me your entries no later than 11:59PM ET on Friday, December 31, 2010. Only one entry per household and the contest is open to U.S. residents only. THANK YOU for reading and GOOD LUCK in this Christmas Week Mini-Giveaway Bonanza!
