5.0 out of 5 stars Mike Dolce is a nutritional and fitness genius. August 15, 2012
By richnpd
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I first heard about Mike Dolce when he volunteered to help UFC fighter Thiago Alves after he missed weight against Jon Fitch at UFC 117 and have been a loyal, avid follower of his ever since. I've been working out for years and was never able to get a six pack or achieve that desired "lean look". With Mike's help (The Dolce Diet and The Dolce Diet Living Lean Cookbook) I have finally been able to reach my goals. I've lost 22 pounds and, more importantly, cut my body fat from 17% to 8.2% following Mike's simple to use meal plans and I have never felt better in my life.

In a nutshell, this cookbook is is full of delicious, nutritious and super easy to prepare meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All of Mike's books skip the boring scientific studies and research and concentrate on what foods to eat, buy and stay away from. Eat until satisfied!!! I never knew about quinoa, coconut oil, almond milk and buckwheat until I read Mike's books. Who knew that olive oil was not a cooking oil and that grape seed oil and coconut oil are great tasting, nutritious medium heat cooking oils!! The meals and smoothies that are in the cookbook are so easy and fast to make. I have never cooked in my life and now I completely enjoy preparing and cooking my meals. It's that easy to use and follow.

I can't recommend enough purchasing this book and Mike's "Living Lean - The Dolce Diet" book. Together, they teach you how to eat for life and not how to count calories or use points to achieve your fitness goals. You eat high quality carbohydrates, proteins and good fats. This is no Akins Diet nonsense this is real world, hardcore fitness nutrition. All of my co-workers and family have seen my results and have purchased this cookbook for themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can not wait to start! July 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently bought The Dolce Diet: LIVING LEAN COOKBOOK. I was very impressed with previous comments, interviews and results with Dolce. After seeing another interview where he claimed Chael Sonnen would lose 20 lbs in 24 hours to make weight, and subsequently delivered, I was sold (hopefully, this wasn't a joint stunt with UFC and Chael Sonnen Promotions, I kid... ;p).

I have not started the recipes in this cookbook; currently waiting for pay day to go shopping. With that said, I have read through the first 50 pages and here are a few things that I considered missing from the book.

1. Table of contents
2. The ability to print (not sure if this is a kindle issue or a permission from the author issue).

I have uploaded an image showing the beginning sections and their page numbers so that other buyers of this book can know where to go when they're looking for breakfast vs. dinner vs. lunch items. In my opinion, this should have been done by Dolce and his team. Hopefully, an update to this book will come out and those of us that bought it will get the update as well.

In regards to printing, I find it easier when I have a page in the kitchen with me to use while making a new recipe. It would be nice if we had the option to print pages of our choosing, after all, this is a cookbook. However, it's not a deal-breaker. I suppose I could take snapshots of the recipes if I truly have the need to print.

These are the reasons I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. I would've chosen 4.5 out of 5 if that was an option. (I did find a few grammatical errors, but hey, no one's perfect and I'm not complaining. Hopefully, none have appeared in ths review, heh. Dolce, hit me up if you need a proofreader in the future, ;p)

With that said, I'm very pleased with what I've read so far. I've been doing a Paleo diet for a few months and this fits right in.

Dolce, thank you very much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Purchased as a gift for a Dolce fan! January 8, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this cookbook for my husband, who is a big Dolce fan and listens to the Dolce Podcast religiously. The cookbook is great! Everything we have made so far has turned out lovely! I wish there were more pictures, but I love that the pictures they do have are sent in from fans. Very easy to follow instructions for a new living lean cook!
