Editorial Reviews

Chuck Mindenhall
ESPN: LIVING LEAN IS A TOP READ
By now you know that (Mike) Dolce has helped fighters like Thiago Alves make weight, but the thing that’s been under-stressed is that Dolce is a lifestyle changer. Now Dolce’s got a book out that will help those of you who wonder at his secrets, and it’s full of recipes and workout tips to get you into a leaner, healthier figure. The personal favorite: Bapple juice (apple, beets and chia seeds).
Denny Hodge
This nutrition plan works, plain and simple, whether you're an athlete or a father that just throws a baseball around with your kids. After interviewing (UFC fighter) John Alessio, I ordered Living Lean. After starting at 236 lbs., I finished the first week at 221 lbs. This book has changed my lifestyle.

Csara Home Talkers
It's not a diet! Its a way to eat healthy forever. Its about stopping the hamster wheel of eating processed crap and eating foods your body can absorb and make use of. No matter what diet plan or eating plan you ever use you have to change your mental attitude first. Look at the Biggest Loser tv show, its all mental. With Mike Dolce’s honest look at himself in this book it was easy to relate to.
Food 4 Abs
The Dolce Diet is surprisingly easy to follow, even if you’re normally a real diet slacker! Mike Dolce provides a brilliantly told story, doing a great job keeping the reader motivated. So if you’re a seasoned gym vet or new to this & just looking to lose some fat & improve your health, this is a rewarding book. You know that you’re getting a plan that works, has great backing, and most importantly – is easy to follow. I would recommend this to anyone. A must have!

    Super easy recipes

    The thing that I found most impressive about this book is how easy meal prep was. Additionally, the meals leave you feeling satisfied without feeling like you overdid it. I am a formerly avid fitness fanatic and amatuer athlete who has fallen off the horse. Mike Dolce's teachings are getting me back to where I need to be.
