South Beach Christmas Giveaway Winner #4 & #5

We're in Day 4 our our South Beach Christmas Giveaway contest where we are giving away a total of TEN copies of the new book by Dr. Arthur Agatston entitled The South Beach Diet Quick & Easy Cookbook.

Let's go ahead and announce the winners for both Saturday and Sunday:

Jennifer W. from Virginia and Hannah B. from Connecticut!

Jennifer, a first-time low-carber, writes:

"I'm new to this low-carb thing, but I am so encouraged by Jimmy's story that I know I will be successful."

THANK YOU, Jennifer! And you WILL be successful as long as you never lose sight of the prize that awaits you by livin' la vida low-carb.

Hannah is a big fan of The South Beach diet and writes:

"Hi! I support the low-carb lifestyle because I have found the South Beach diet to be the only one that ever worked for me and let me keep the weight off! I had to lose weight as quickly as possible for health reasons and I was able to lose a lot of weight fast to start, then maintain it by sensible eating. My husband went on it with me and he had the same results. We plan on going back on the induction phase after the holidays and I would like to find more recipes than the few that are in the diet book itself. Even my internist said he is in favor of it above all the other diet plans available. It just makes sense!"

And CONGRATULATIONS to you, Hannah! I am so glad you and your husband were able to find the South Beach diet and use it to quickly and permanently lose weight. I am sure you will find many delectable dishes to enjoy in The South Beach Diet Quick & Easy Cookbook to enjoy!

In fact, let me share yet another recipe from The South Beach Diet Quick & Easy Cookbook with YOU:

Vietnamese Pork Rolls

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes (includes assembling rolls)

These rolls are special, yet not hard to make. A simply dressed green salad with cucumber or radish would be a perfect accompaniment. Cut them on the diagonal or cut the lettuce leaves into thirds and roll up smaller, hors d'oeuvre-size pieces.

1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce (page 19)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
Pinch red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 pound pork cutlets
1 (½-pound) head napa cabbage, shredded (3 cups)
1 small red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
8 large Boston lettuce leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the dressing: Whisk together fish sauce, lime juice, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.

For the pork: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season pork with salt and pepper and sauté until lightly browned, 3 minutes per side. Remove from heat and slice into thin strips. Toss with 1 tablespoon of the dressing.

Combine cabbage, bell pepper, and remaining dressing in a large bowl. Lay lettuce leaves on a clean, dry work surface. Divide pork among leaves. Top with cabbage mixture and roll tightly, tucking edges in as you go. Place rolls, seam side down, on a cutting board, cut in half, and serve.

Makes 4 servings

Welcome, Michael! I just checked out your blog and wish you the best with it and your low-carb lifestyle. THANKS for stopping by and come back again soon!

Thanks. I am currently redoing the blog right now. Starting over. My normal blog can be seen at (just a bunch of geek links) But I have been reading your site and got pumped again about losing some of this weight that I have gained back. I lost over 100lbs back in 2004 but this past year between a mountain bike accident and having a newborn at the house, I have added back on about 15 lbs. Reading your blog has got me ready to rebouble my efforts and get back on track.

I get tired of people saying that Low Carb followers can do not have energy to run and stuff like that. I am a big runner, 5 & 10k runs, and I can for one tell you that I actually run better on low carbs than when I carb load.

Thanks again for the site. I have asked my family to be sure to get me your book as a stocking stuffer. ;)

Let me know if I can assist you with your low-carb program or your blog. I just added you to my low-carb buddies list on this blog. :)

Thank you. I also have you on my blogroll. I am just glad that there are crusader's out there that are fighting for truth in dieting.

Have you considered starting a Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Forum?

By the way I first heard about you and your blog on Amazon.

WOW, Amazon, eh? That's pretty cool. A forum? Well, my blog is open for comments anytime, so probably not. But there are some EXCELLENT low-carb forums out there. That's not really my niche, but I'm sure those who do have forums would be happy to tell you about theirs! :)

Oh sorry to bother you by the way I must have been still working on the blog when you stopped by it, I was using but it is now (Sorry about that and thank you again for blogrolling me).

That's true about there already being a lot of forums out there, and I didn't really think about the fact that the blog it's self (given comments) is interactive and almost forum like. Thanks again.

Yummy receipe, Jimmy. An alternative could be to replace the canola oil with melted butter or coconut oil and make a thin springroll-style wrap from whisked melted butter, whey protein powder and eggs. Pack the other ingredients in the wrap and sautee in some oil, and voila... a crispy spring roll. Can be steamed too. Yummy as well!
