Big News from SparkGuy: 'The Spark Solution' Available for Pre-Order

By , SparkPeople Motivation Expert, Founder and CEO
At SparkPeople, it's really hard to keep a secret. Our news is usually so good that we want to share it with you, our members, as soon as possible. But this secret is BIG and finally the time has come for me to share the news with you!
SparkPeople wrote another book!

The Spark Solution is a two-week diet program to jump-start weight loss and total body health. The idea behind it is simple: Why waste time experimenting with weight-loss tactics that don't work? With The Spark Solution, you could spend the next two weeks jump-starting your weight loss and setting yourself up for long-term success. Whether you want to lose 10, 50, or 100 pounds, this book will set you up for a lifetime of healthy living by helping change the way you think about weight loss and setting goals that you'll stick with.
With The Spark Solution, you'll get:
  • A three-part plan to make over your mindset and optimize your metabolism while building momentum that will allow you to reach your weight-loss goals
  • 14 days of 1,500-calorie eating plans, with three easy, delicious meals a day plus two snacks--packed with foods that will keep you satisfied  while helping you burn calories
  • A program based on research into what worked for our most successful members--and what didn't work for those who gave up early on
  • A custom workout plan from Coach Nicole that helps you maximize your efforts--without spending hours in the gym
  • Dozens of delicious and filling ALL-NEW SparkSwaps recipes (created by Chef Meg) that are ready in 30 minutes or less
  • Daily motivation to keep your enthusiasm high, tips from people who've lost weight and kept it off, plus the latest research in nutrition and goal setting distilled into simple actions that will help you reconsider how you think about healthy living
And it's from the SparkPeople experts you know and trust. The book was written by our head dietitian Becky Hand and editorial director Stepfanie Romine, but it was really a team effort. I wrote the introduction. Coach Nicole developed the workout plan. Chef Meg created the recipes. Coach Dean contributed to the motivation section. And all of you contributed in some way. We surveyed our most successful members to find out what worked and what didn't--and that became the basis of the program our experts created for the book. You are "The Spark Solution"!

The Spark Solution will be releasing on May 7 in both hardcover and e-book versions, but you can get over $45 in FREE gifts (including 500 SparkPoints) by pre-ordering your copy today!

End the yo-yo diet cycle for good with a program that's proven, with built-in, no-fail tactics to ensure you're successful. No more deprivation and no more relying on sheer will power alone. With The Spark Solution, there is no next time, only this time! You're just 14 days away!

As a way to thank our community for helping us Spread the Spark, we're offering special gifts to those who pre-order the book!

Don't waste your money on the Enhanced Edition. They just send you a sample of the book for $14.56! Report
don't understand all this stuff. Thought I would be able to speak to someone. Report
want to order. have to check my finances though Report
This seems like it might be good. But I don't like to buy without actually looking at the book. I would want to know ahead of time things like "can I do the exercises with my health problems", "do the menus contain foods I'll actually eat and able to fix with my schedule", etc. Once the book is on the shelves, I'll decide if it's right for me. I hope it is because I do need it. Report
Hi, everyone. If you have any questions about the content, you can preview the introduction. Please visit the order page (linked above) and click on the tab "what's inside"--you can download the first chapter, which was written by SparkGuy and explains the research and premise behind the book. It is based on the principles you know and trust. PICKIE98 was right when she described how we use the word diet. Keep those questions coming! Report
When we speak of the word "diet" it means a set food plan,, NOT specifically to lose weight.. When you are an inpatient at a hospital, your doctor orders a diet for you, regular, low salt, low carb diabetic calorie diet. The ADJECTIVE of diet(i.e. 1200 calorie, low car,etc) is the type of diet. THAT is what Spark is trying to get across to people,, diet does not mean anything specific until you put that adjective in there.. Everybody is on a diet,, liquid, soft, etc! IT is the word to define what food plan we eat to stay alive! Look in the dictionary. Report
I'm staggered that this is talking about things like 'fast-track' and 'diet program'. To me these are exactly what SP is NOT about and what makes it better than all the others. What's going on??? Report
I am disappointed that this is one more 1500 calorie diet plan. I eat 1400 calories to maintain my current wait and have been told by 3 different dieticians that I need to go down to 1200 calories to lose weight. Do you offer any suggestions for me? This is really tough to do. (I am short and older) Report
Hi, everyone.
There is a large blue link at the bottom of the blog that says: Click here to enter proof of purchase and get your gifts.
I can't copy a link here so please visit that link.
Is this offer available for Canadians as well? If so, I would order from and how would you receive notification that I ordered?
Thank you,
Kathy Report
I pre-ordered on Amazon. I already have both DVDs, but am interested in trying the SparkCoach free for three months. How does that work & can I save it till after I read the book? Report
I pre-ordered yesterday and started Spark Coach last night. After another winter of regaining the weight I lost during the spring and summer, this came at the perfect time to rev up my motivation! Thanks, Sparkpeople! Report
Great idea, love it. But Ialready have the 2 work out dvd's with coach Nicole
can i swap for her new one? Report
Wonderful but I don't see it on kindle Report
I just ordered it from Amazon and could not see the code to redeem my free Spark Coach gift. Report
I just preordered. i am so glad I did. Do you receive an email instantly because I have not gotten one but I did from Barnes and Noble about my purchase? Report
I will look into that! Report
I guess a better question to ask is are the enhancements available with the e-book also available with the Kindle? I have an Ipad so I can read either one. Does anyone know? Report
Does anyone know where the e-book enhanced version is available at? It appears Amazon has the hard copy and the Kindle version only. Report
I pre-ordered this book off Amazon to be sent to my home along with the DVDs etc before this article came out on Spark. Will I still get my extra 500 Spark Points

After you have ordered the book, go to the link above (the one that says "pre-order today...") for info on redeeming your gifts.
i pre ordered the kindle version. i am trying to access spark coach and it keeps prompting me for a payment. also, how do i make sure you have my correct address to send the dvds Report
When you start your SparkCoach subscription is up to you.
You will get the code immediately, and you'll be able to enter it at any time.
If you have already paid for a subscription, the three months will be applied to your account. Report
The offer will continue as long as supplies last.
The ebook is ready for pre-order now as well. Report
How long will this offer be going on for? Report
How long will this offer be going on for? Report
I would prefer the ebook version. Is that coming in the future or can that be pre-ordered now as well? Report
The book looks great. For the three months of Spark Coach, when does that start? Now, after the book is released or do I get to choose? TIA. Report
I think it should be wonderful for those who are new to the Sparkpeople concept. However, I have bought both books including the cookbook and both DVD's. Having said that it should be a runaway best seller. Report
Hi, everyone! Thank you for your kind words and encouraging comments.
To answer your questions:
These recipes are ALL NEW--not the same as in the cookbook, and not shared on the site.
You can get the gifts if you order the kindle version, yes. There will be an enhanced e-book version that contains more photos and videos.
Keep the questions coming, and thank you for your support! Report
Are the recipes different from the ones in the Sparkpeople cookbook? Report
This is a GREAT Deal!!I preordered also. I would guess you get the deal pre ordering the kindle version as you have to put in an order number and price to redeem for the offer:) Report
If you pre-order the Kindle edition do you still get the free gifts? Report
Can anyone from SparkPeople tell me if you can get the gifts when you order the Kindle (electronic) version or must you order the hard copy? Report
I just pre-ordered this book. Looking forward to another book from Sparkspeople!! Report
