That's awesome! You know I erased Hot Stuff and put Cybergenics right before I posted because I thought the HS reference was too obscure Phone Post 3.0
Awesome. I bought a bunch if that freshman year. I was 6'2" and weighed 175. I needed to get to HW and away from the good wrestlers in the 150s-180s.

I swore that it worked Phone Post 3.0

Caught_clean - Read his book, cant speak on his weight cutting part but the diet stuff looked super stadard. High protien and cut calories. Phone Post 3.0
Nope Phone Post 3.0

I have the book in front of me. Tell me where I am wrong? obviously theres more details on diet plans etc, but every day before the fight hes cutting more calories from the total and adding more protein.

thats probably 3 weeks to shredded then which is a drastic weight loss program specified for 3 week short term weight loss, living lean is completely different and doesnt focus on lowering calories over a week by week basis but rather a whole eating and lifestyle change. Noe theres no debate i eat less calories then i did in the past but i have a very hard time believing im burning between 1500 - 2000 calories in a 45 minute workout using mainly body weight and 20lb dumbbells i may be wrong though.

you've got to figure in basal metabolic rate, broski. the average person burns roughly 2000 calories per day at rest (give or take a few hundred, depending on size and other factors). Take Those ~2k calories along with the calories you lose from actual physical activity, then subtract your food intake to determine your caloric deficit for the day.

I'm 41 now, but I used Hot Stuff in high school because I was 5'8" 145lbs and was cleanup hitter. I also used to buy the Joe Weider weight gain too (I forget what it was called), but I would add chocolate sauce and ice cream. I swore all of it worked Phone Post 3.0

It has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss. The "earth-grown" bullshit is a novelty made for the diet in order for it to make it stand out from other diets. However, it's pure and absolute bullshit. Phone Post 3.0

"Earth grown nutrients" is Dolce's term for eating primarily fresh fruits and vegetables along with lean meats and clean carb sources. He uses that term because traditionally the term "whole foods" has been used for that same thing, but it gets confusing now days with "Whole Foods" stores because they sell a bunch of processed garbage.

Of the Dolce things to call bullshit on, you've picked the least bullshit thing he preaches. Phone Post 3.0

I heard Dolce used to Hunt mannequins, and fed and clothed himself with the plastic hides.

Haters can ask themselves all day long why mannequins have almost 0% body fat.

You want success, you look at what works, and then EAT it.

Seriously, that's the one takeaway from Dolce that everyone should be doing.

I saw Dolce fight in Jersey years ago. It was like he was shot out of a cannon. Phil Baroni was a slow starter in comparison. Mikey Sweet sparked some kid.

It comes with age, and honestly, I'm just glad I can give back.

I always tell young kids to walk backwards up the dusty staircase while singing with a gold-winged trophy in hand.

It tells the mannequins not to fuck with you, that you have arrived and whatnot. That this is your neighborhood, your town, all that James Toney shit.

Basically this is what Dolce has been preaching for years, but in the form of a diet.

Okay, so what you're saying is renaming "fresh fruits and vegetables along with lean meats and clean carb sources" as earth grown nutrients and selling them as you're own unique diet isn't bullshit? Lol Phone Post 3.0

what success has he had?

He's so successful, he has a full stable of UFC fighters that he works with and has to turn away new clients. Not sure what you do for a living, but its a pretty safe bet you're not turning away clients nor working at the highest echelons of your trade.

Not to mention...we're all spectators here. The fact that the fighters all speak highly of him and continue coming back to him speaks volumes; moreso than a hundred thousand of these threads. Phone Post 3.0

Love Dolce's stuff. If bro science means he's free to experiment and take a different direction than the peer pressure of universities than more power to him.

Anybody who can make up that banana flaxseed pitbull pancake recipe is both bro and scientist.

Dolce spends the majority of his latest podcast shitting on Twitter critics and using two pretty weird excuses for Hendricks' failure to make weight.

Dolce's passion is one of the main reason I listen to his podcast, but sometimes it serves him poorly. The fact that he and his partner at the end of the podcast states that they're "only joking" doesn't change the fact that the first 15 minutes consisted of really awkward defensiveness.

But you know, Dolce has "laughed at critics on the Internet for decades" and been on "literally thousands of weigh-ins", so he's not bothered.

Dolce is good at what he does, but he apparently does not handle criticism all that well.
