We are running a contest! For 6 weeks from October 18, 2010 to November 29, 2010 inclusive we are challenging anyone – patients, friends, your family members (not ours, they aren’t allowed to enter), colleagues, total strangers, anyone to enter our Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Challenge Contest. Why a contest you ask? Because we know how great 95% of people feel going off both gluten and dairy, so we wanted a way to inspire everyone to try it for at least 3-4 weeks and maybe help motivate and inspire others to try it too…and they tell 2 friends, and they tell 2 friends and so on, and so on. How the contest will work: Starting Monday October 18th, the comment section on this blog post will be open for comments. You will need to register to post a comment, but you do not have to use your real name, you can use a nickname for privacy/anonymity, but you must provide us with a valid email address which will be used for the SOLE purpose of notifying our winner. Your privacy is important to us and we hate spam as much as you do, so this email address will not be visible to anyone but us and we will never use this email address for any reason other than to tell you that you’ve won (unless of course you ask us to contact you). The contest will be judged by us on 3 criteria: 1. The quality of the content of the post, 2. Its relevance and 3. The quantity of posts you make during the contest period (note the dates above). What to post: your feelings about going gluten-free and dairy-free, tips for doing so, people you’ve inspired to join you in your quest, challenges amongst your co-workers, gluten-free, dairy-free events you’ve organized, favourite gluten-free/dairy-free recipes, challenges or temptations you’ve overcome, gluten-free/dairy-free food lists or substitutes, gluten-free/dairy-free menus, motivation/inspiration for your fellow G-F & D-F contestants and most importantly how you feel physically being off both dairy and gluten. Because we believe in the good in people, the contest will be on an honor system, that is we hope no one will be posting fiction and you must simultaneously eliminate both dairy and gluten, not just one or the other. We will be moderating comments to ensure that none are offensive, there are no spam comments and that there are no links to other sites included in the posts.
Everyone’s a winner because whether you win the Grand Prize or not, here are the rewards we anticipate you will likely see by doing this: weight loss, better energy, feeling more clear-headed and focused, skin problems often improve, digestion improves – less bloating/gas/constipation/loose stools, fewer headaches, less nasal/sinus congestion and you’ll be inspiring others to feel great by going gluten-free and dairy-free too. Grand Prize: A $200 Forces of Nature gift card. The gift card may be used for any of our services or supplements, so if you are not local to us, you may still use your prize to purchase vitamins from us or give it to someone you know who is local as a gift.
Contest void where prohibited by law and open to Canadian residents only. The winner will be notified at the email address provided on registering on November 30, 2010 and the username of the winner will be published in the comments section of this post. Have fun and play fair!
