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. Bad habits, like buying out of season fruits, eating too much processed foods, and continuing this on-going charade with Teflon, are some automatic no-no’s. 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).

MMA Diet Reviews
I have just received my own copy of The Dolce Diet: Living Lean, which I purchased from Barnes and Noble and have already made a few of the recipes, which are pretty darn good. My wife is always suspicious when I say, "Come over here and taste this." But she was shocked at the flavor and at my ability to follow a recipe, which Dolce does a great job keeping simple.

I haven't tried any of the workouts yet but there are lots to choose from. Treadmill work for fat loss, health or fighter training camps. Strength training for the serious athlete or 'Tank Top' workouts for those of us who just want to look fit and feel healthy.

There is even a complete exercise database with photos and step-by-step instructions, which I appreciate because there are some exciting exercises in here that I have never seen before but look great.

One last thing, I was pleasantly shocked at how enjoyable the story was to read. Mike does a spectacular job creating an emotional backdrop to the science behind his program. We get glimpses into his own childhood while dealing with a sick parent, the drive needed to become successful in any endeavor, behind-the-scene looks into what professional fighters struggle with, just like the rest of us and so much more.

Home Talkers
We kept hearing about The Dolce Diet: Living Lean. It is blowing up on Twitter and has amazing reviews all over the internet. We figured, what the heck, let's give it a shot. What do we have to lose (other than the $39.99 price tag)? Well, I'll tell you, just for the 3 recipes I've tried so far and the helpful grocery list, it was worth it already. Today for lunch we had a fantastic salad.

It's so delicious and so easy to make. Just throw together some baby spinach (and kale if you have any - I didn't), cut up strawberries, cucumbers, onion (preferably red, but I used yellow and it was still awesome), chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), chopped walnuts, tomatoes (optional), feta cheese and drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Perfection!
