strengthcoach - Hey guys,

I have some extra time in the office this week and wanted to jump back on and help where I can.

For starters, do not fear fruit!!! I'm not sure why this myth still exists but fruit is your friend, especially when cutting weight.

Think cellular!

I'm debating on following your plan for a fight I have coming up, but I won't lie, the fruits are terrifying me. All the other weight cut plans I see have them cut out. Why do you use the fruits in your plan?

Hey guys,

We've all heard the warnings about avoiding fruit if you are cutting weight...BUT...if you look at my stable of athletes, you will see real life examples of why fruit should be a mainstay in any weight-cutting phase.

Rampage, Sonnen, Alves, Belfort, Maynard, Ellenberger and dozens more at the elite level have stepped on the scale SHREDDED and ENERGIZED with ample fruit in their daily diets.

It saddens me how many athletes listen to heresay and inaccurate advice and struggle to stand up, let alone make weight because they are so nutrient deprived.

The lean protein and distilled water diets are dead!!!

I just got Living Lean. I'll post a review soon. Snap judgment... The book itself is kind of lean on content. I mainly wanted food /recipe ideas. It doesn't have many. Phone Post

And these guys consume about 5000-7000 calories a day when in fight camp?...Really relevant for the average Joe

I still haven't dove in fully, so I can't really post a detailed review. But I have to say the recipes I tried are good. I suppose they aren't necessarily revolutionary, but for someone like me who never ever cooks, it's a good guide and at least I can have some "go to" quality meals. I believe I counted 20 or so recipes (I'll look again later), which isn't much considering there are one's for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

One annoying thing is the pantry list isn't complete. So here I am stocked with the stuff he recommends at first, only to find out a recipe calls for something not on the list.

Another annoying thing is it's unclear how many each recipe is supposed to feed. I got my wife eating this stuff with me. Some recipes are more than enough for both of us, and some are clearly just for one. Sure I can eyeball it, but it would be nice if it said--so I can double or half recipes accordingly.

It did spark up my interest/desire to cook more. And to eat "whole" as much as possible. I think I'll search out more easy and healthy recipes to put into an inventory.

I'm going to see about following his exercise plan/ideas during the winter.

I am still counting calories on my weight lost quest.

Just a note. I don't trane ufc or anything. I'm just a 37 year old who wants to get back into shape. I was doing great prior to getting Living Lean (jogging and calorie deficit). Like I said in the previous post, I just mainly wanted healthy food and recipe ideas. I just wish there were more in the book.

I understand the need to have a diet plan that works, however, in my opinion this needs to be a lifestyle choice and not a 'fad" to get you ripped. If you are a combat athlete for example then yes weight cutting will help, however, for the average joe like myself a healthy eating plan is a lot more considered and viable option. Gregg Avedon wrote a great book called "Muscle Chow" that has some good recipes in it and a realistic cycling approach to food and training. Worth a look at.

I'm glad I found this thread, as I'm trying to find out if this book is available in stores or only online. I know its available at Barnes and Nobles website, but if anyone knows if its in the actual store, as well as what section it is in, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

strengthcoach - Hey Guys,

"The DOLCE Diet: Living Lean" will be on bookshelves in 2011.

It is our goal to reach a larger cross-section of the public and really detail the principles behind my system as well as offering specific meal plans and lifestyle structuring for people with alternate backgrounds and goals.

"The DOLCE Diet: 3-Weeks to Shredded" is available right now on my website and is receiving rave reviews from athletes looking to make weight for fights AND for everyday-type-people just looking to get a jump-start on their own weight-loss and lifestyle change.

I detail every single meal down to the ingredient in this book and even offer a shopping list, so you can just switch onto auto-pilot and let me walk you through the process.

What is amazing, is that people are losing 20, 30 even 40 pounds on this system AND keeping the weight off because I teach you how to adapt to a healthy lifestyle and make your own smart food choices.

Hopefully, I'm not getting too long-winded but I wanted to try and answer all your questions.

Thanks for taking the time to share in the conversation.

Al the best,
Mike Dolce

this is one of the most easy to follow plans i have seen yet. It may seem "lean" on info... i think that is because he is simply showing how simple this can be.

Also... this diet isnt just for cutting weight. if the average joe or jane was to simply follow this plan (living lean)they would harden up and definately live a healthier lifestyle. This book is for everyone.

I have had the chance to work with over 200 women and over 100 men as well as close to 20 professional athletes. all concerning diet and fitness. This book is the best ive seen yet.

Simple and straight forward.

Sorry for the thread bump but when I click on the subscribe button it doesn't work so I guess I have to subscribe by posting lol.

Anyway, I think I might buy the book and I was just looking to see what the UG thought, this looked like the biggest thread on the topic so I figured I'll give it a read before I purchase anything.

Sorry guys, FRAT warning:

OK, can someone answer a couple of questions for me about Dolce's book "Living Lean". By the way, the reason I'm interested and am a little late to the party is that I heard Mike on the JRE and I thought I would give his book a shot. Hey, what do I have to lose, right?

Does this book contain something along the lines of a diet plan so to speak? I'm really clueless about nutrition and diet and stuff. What I'm looking for is something that tells me what to eat and when to eat it. I go to the gym 3 times a week (usually Monday, Wednesday, Saturday due to time constraints) and go for a walk for roughly an hour every Monday - Saturday so I'm not totally physically inactive but I would love to lose some weight.

I'm 6'4 and currently weigh 264lbs. I'm not really fat but I'm definitely not skinny either. I have good shoulders, arms and OK legs but my chest and abs kinda suck. I've got a belly thats for certain but I'm not "Documentary Fat" if you get what I mean lol. I could definitely use some tips for when I'm at the gym such as what muscle groups to work on what day, what to eat before and after the gym and just some more good excercises to be honest.

I figure, no matter how much I exercise it doesn't mean shit unless I'm eating right. I don't mind cutting out junk food, cutting out soda and all that shit because I don't eat or drink a lot of it anyway. Also I very rarely drink alcohol and I don't smoke either just incase thats important lol. To be honest, I've tried to make some changes to benefit my diet such as switching from white rice to brown rice, normal spaghetti to brown spaghetti that sort of thing. I'm eating a lot more chicken (skinless) and fish, trying more vegetables and eating less microwavable stuff, take out food etc... But I still need some help, I want to be told "This is what you eat for Breakfast. This is what you eat for Lunch. This is what you eat for Dinner." and I'll follow it to the letter.

Ultimately my goal is to look better, get fitter and start training MMA properly. I don't want to go to MMA classes just now because I feel like I would be able to go full capacity for like 30 minutes then I would be spent lol.

Any information on Mike's book related to this post would be greatly appreciated, many vote ups will be in your immediate future lol. Thanks in advance everyone! :)
