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.

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!!

Easy to read and follow, Just Eat Real Food is the underlying theme of the book with no real detail.

By jacopo
I have been quite disappointed by this book.
After reading reviews and hearing talking and interviews about this book I really expected something amazing that would revolutionize the way I eat and approach training.

I expected a structured METHOD.
This is not what you will get from the book.

First 20 pages is all about how great Mike is, how much he overachieved over the years and how everything he does is the best.

Next bit is Nutrition: basically he tells you to eat clean food, organic, chemical free stuff. Make totale sense. Great.
Then a list of complex recipes, everyone of them has 15 20 different ingredients and elements, so good luck buying everything you need. Definitely not keeping it simple.

and that's it really... no diet plan, no numbers, no advices on how much and how often eat.

Workout part. Some short programs, which might be interesting, some images showing how to perform techniques. But again too general and not really useful in my opinion.

Trying to address two massive topics in 100 pages couldnt lead elsewhere than to a book that is VERY generic, with literally 3 4 good advices, everything else you can find it online for free.

Decent enough book, probably a bit too much talk about himself (Mike). Good food list, recipes and meal plan. . .

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but nothing new. 22 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book thinking I would give it a chance, but to be honest, there is nothing here you cannot get from somewhere else. I do respect Mike Dolce's experience and I think that if this was the first book you ever picked up on exercise and diet, it may have some value. I do not think it's worth the price, and much of the information would probably be better presented in a shorter format, like an article or monograph. There isn't a whole book's material in this.

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.
