1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointed..... 6 Oct 2012
By Ian
I am so disappointed with this book. 173 pages, the first 80 of which are devoted to Mike telling us how great he is. The 'advice' (such as it is) consists of a few well meaning, but ultimately common sense snippets. Eat wholegrains (yes we know Mike) Eat fruit and veg (I've heard that one before Mike).

Moving on there are some recipes which the Author probably likes. A few for breakfast, a few for lunch and a few for dinner. These really are pitiful. One of them, and this is no word of a lie is a recipe for an avocado and I quote verbatim.

'Cut the avocado in half, take out the pit and spoon it out like a pudding. Pair with an orange or two for a great snack'. That nugget of wonderous wisdom was deemed important enough for a full page on the Kindle version. Gee thanks for that Mike, what next? 2 pages on how to eat a banana? A diagram of the best way to wash some celery?

Before you buy this book take note of the introduction....

'I'm not going to waste your time with hundreds of pages dedicated to terminology and definitions in an attempt to prove validity while hiding behind science. It's not necessary'. Yes it is Mike - I've just paid 7 for a digital copy of a book that tells me nothing and I suspect has been written to cash in a few dollars. I'm really not interested in what Mike and his wife like to eat for dinner, I'm interested in the human body, what, how and why things work.

At least read the free sample before you buy this book and see if you agree before parting with your hard earned cash and putting a few dollars more into Mr Dolce's avocado fund.

Mike - if you read this, you should be ashamed of yourself!

Very little detail as to why you should be eating the meals included in the book (some of which are quite good). If you already work out and read fitness magazines you will probably know most of the things in the book. an absolute beginner may benefit slightly from the book. very disappointing!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Really thats it ???? 28 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book seems to polarise people.

I ignored those who gave it a low rating choosing to go with the 5 star ratings etc.

If you know absolutely nothing about living with a healthy diet, then yes this book will teach you something new. If you know to eat lean proteins, plenty of vegetables avoid processed foods etc. This book will give you nothing new

This is an expensive book but after reading all the amazing reviews I went for it anyway. When it arrived I was surprised to see how small it was. In addition to that over half of the 165 or so pages is actually dedicated to workouts, exercises and training and no matter how good this info might be its not why I purchased the book and not really what you expect from the title etc. This is not really a diet plan itself so if that's what you're expecting foot buy it. It is more of a nutritional guide with what kinds of food to eat and when and some good recipes too. All this said, the book did change the way I do my food shopping and has definitely had a positive impact on my diet and training. It's just a case of learning from the book and then using this knowledge to formulate a new nutritional plan or change your current diet for the better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good information overpriced. 1 July 2013
Cutting straight to the chase, all the negative reviews of this book on here are pretty much spot on.

If you want to eat a quality diet and have good workouts but have zero idea of how to go about it this book will be helpful.

All the exercises and recipes are quality information but it's also readily available on the internet for free.

The shopping list costs about 60-70 (most which will only last few days in your fridge) not including coconut oils, hemp oils, almond/cashew butter, flax seed etc that you will have to buy from health/fitness stores and websites.

If you are even the slightest but interested in the information I'd highly recommend just listening to Mike Dolce's FREE podcast as he regularly spouts info straight out of the books.

Lots of good tips and recipes in his book. Some nice background stuff as well. I like the positivity in his writing but I am sure that could also annoy people as well.
