When Mike Dolce's cell phone buzzes with an unfamiliar number a few days before a major MMA event, he already knows what's coming.

Dolce's primary work is as a nutritionist, managing the day-to-day food intake of pro athletes with precision focus. But the creator of "The Dolce Diet" is also known to be something of an expert at temporary weight-cutting, and a last minute call to Dolce means that somewhere, some fighter is panicking.

"I get phone calls the week of, or the night before weigh-ins sometimes," Dolce said. "I've taken same- day requests. I've gotten there on the day of the weigh-ins, got in there and gotten it done. I'm able to work a little magic then, but if they're calling me at that point, they already screwed up."

Hard to believe that someone can lose 16 pounds in a hot tub in 60 minutes.

Read the entire article and you'll see.

"That night Dolce took Pyle down to the hotel's hot tub and sat in it with him for about thirty minutes."

"Then they went back up to the room – where Dolce had surreptitiously turned the heat up – had a small meal, and returned to the hot tub once more before bed, dropping another eight pounds in about a half-hour."

Why would you drop water weight while sitting in a hot tub? It just doesnt make sense to me.

 I'm somewhat doubtful that a cut of that size can be that easy. I'm also hopeful that its true....

 Hot bath definitely works.  Its because when the humidity is higher the body has to sweat more to cool down.  When submerged in the hot bath, humidity is at 100%.  So its actually the most efficient way to cut weight.
