Is that nagging voice predicting it's impossible to keep the New Year's resolution to shed those extra pounds in 2013? No need to be discouraged. Help is on the way from Dole Food Company, the world's largest fruit and vegetable company, and from America's favorite small appliance for the kitchen: the Yonanas maker.

Yonanas creates a healthy, low-cost delicious dessert or anytime treat that looks and tastes just like soft-serve ice cream using only frozen bananas and other frozen fruits. It's ready in seconds and there's no need to add sugar or milk.

Starting in 2013, there's even more reason to get excited about Yonanas' "almost ice cream" diet. Yonanas and Dole are teaming up to offer dieters a special incentive for sticking with their New Year's weight loss resolutions. And the USA's demand for delicious bananas won't cause an unappealing shortage, either Dole will stock the produce departments of grocery stores and supermarkets across the country with 100 million sticker clad bunches of Dole bananas. Each QR-coded "Get Healthy With Yonanas" sticker will lead to an online sweepstakes.        

Everyone is invited and it's easy to get a chance to win the Grand Prize, 3 nights for the winner and their guest at The Four Seasons Westlake Village in Los Angeles, plus a personalized plan for healthy living from The California Health & Longevity Institute and a whole lot more from one of the 5 great runner up prizes in this healthiest of sweepstakes.

All that's required is to 'Like' Yonanas on Facebook and submit name, email address, city and state, and date of birth and the entry is complete.    

"We are thrilled to be working with Dole to help motivate our loyal fans to 'Get Healthy with Yonanas,’ said Eileen McHale, co-founder and spokesperson of Yonanas. "Yonanas was created to help people enjoy a guilt-free treat that will make them and their families happy and healthy."

According to David Bright of Dole, "For more than 150 years, the Dole brand has been synonymous with providing the highest standards for quality produce and social responsibility. We are delighted to partner with Yonanas in this campaign that aims to help people remain committed to their healthy living goals."

The sweepstakes Grand Prize includes round trip airfare for two to Los Angeles, 3 nights at the luxurious AAA Five Diamond Four Seasons Westlake; breakfast daily, the Therapist's Choice Swedish Massages at the Spa at the Four Seasons, named one of the country's best hotel spas by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler; and a full day at the renowned California Health & Longevity Institute.

The Institute provides a holistic health and wellness approach to reaching and maintaining your ideal weight. The winner and their guest will receive a body composition analysis, meet with experts in healthcare, weight loss and maintenance, nutrition, cooking, fitness and stress management. They will develop the individual lifestyle plan for you to get on that road to healthy living. It's an amazing, potentially life-changing Grand Prize from Yonanas and Dole.

There will be five lucky first prize winners whose names will be drawn to receive a Yonanas maker and Get Healthy eating dessert. Five second prize winners are going to really go bananas in 2013 because they are going to win a year's supply of Dole bananas.

One lucky third place winner is going to win a nutrition consultation and two follow up sessions with Nicole Meadow, MPN, RD, CLC of NutritionWise. The Nutrition Consultation with Nicole includes a review of overall health, a customized healthy eating and activity plan, and dietary education. Follow ups will include reviewing food diaries, adjusting goals and monitoring weight.    

One lucky fourth place winner will receive a $100 Lululemon gift card for all their work out gear. And one fifth place winner will receive a $100 gift card so they can Just Do It! with Nike and Get Healthy in the New Year.

Bananas are considered a "super food" because they're filled with vitamins and minerals that are essential for good health. They're also rich in fiber, low in calories and help lower cholesterol, normalize blood pressure and are a natural antacid. Now, imagine how scrumptious dieting will be when Dole bananas become "almost ice cream" with Yonanas. It's the perfect diet dessert or snack to fill up on and satisfy cravings whenever they strike.
