I have recently rekindled a love affair with books — books about Vancouver, history, cooking, and life. It could be the fact that I’m now a published author myself, but there’s always been something charming about the anticipation of flipping to the next page to be even more inspired, intrigued and educated.

I was recently approached to do a giveaway of The DebFit Method: Weight Loss Secrets Based on SaltSpring Weight Loss Detox Camp. While I haven’t read the book myself, it is written by a local author and promotes a healthy lifestyle in a unique way. Deb Leblanc is a fitness trainer and weight loss specialist who has written this lifestyle guide to help women lose weight safely.

Reader review on Amazon: Deb Leblanc feels more like a girlfriend trying to kick your butt into shape and I like her writing style. I really can relate to her own story of weight loss and maintenance. But one of the main reasons I picked it up was the three day non supplement cleanse. I usually do a two week cleanse that just depletes me by the end, so I wanted to try the Debfit cleanse that promised to be more gentle on my body. I loved the recipes and really, it was much easier on my body with not having to take huge amounts of supplements throughout the day. I would really recommend this book, it’s an easy read with some unique tips. And really, the cover is enough to motivate you to get off the couch!

The book is available for $17.99 online (through the website or Amazon). If you would like to win a copy of this book, please leave a comment below to enter the draw. I’ll select a winner at random Friday June 4th at 9:00am.

You can follow @DebFit on Twitter or Facebook for more information.

Update The winner of the book is Valerie. Congratulations and enjoy the read!
