sorry, but as a book, this is a mess . . no disrespect, and i'm sure that dolce is exceptional when it comes to athleticism, being a person's personal trainer, coach, nutritionist, etc. . . but as a book, this was disorganized and offered very little specifics on what makes his approach to weight management any different than anyone else's . . i guess that's what i was expecting: something novel/revolutionary enough to warrant his place in the mma trainer pantheon . . i didn't get that . . the f ...more

This book is a pretty simple read- goes from the author's story/journey to nutrition advice, recipes and workout plans. No, it's not groundbreaking- but that's the point.

I did find myself wishing there was a bit more, which apparently is in his other books. Half of the book is exercises, so of you're looking for that guidance as well, this may be for you.

My wallet is $10 leaner after buying this ebook. The sample of the first 10 pages were compelling enough to buy the rest, which in retrospect seems like a bait and switch. Dont buy this, book consists of:
1) you need to eat less than you burn
2) a menu plan
3) pictures of a mini-arni doing reps.

Not much of a book. He is supposed to be the master of temporary weight cutting, which is not covered at all. Very disappointing.

Easy to read and has great ideas for dieting. More of strategic than tactical way of dieting.

Eat & train like a prize fighter. It's got a lot of great tips & healthy recipes. Must read for the athlete & weekend warriors that want to take it to another level

Totally common sense. Nothing new. No explanation as to why he feels eating this way is best. Glad I bought a used copy.

Appreciate Dolce's common-sense approach to eating healthy. I bought the e-book version mostly for the recipes. Probably not worth $10, but I'm still happy to follow the recipes.
