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!
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.
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.
To say that I was disappointed in these hopes would be an understatement. The first half of the book basically consists of Mike Dolce's life story. Whilst this is reasonably interesting, it isn't what I bought the book for; I probably wouldn't have bought an autobiography of his at all, and I certainly wouldn't have paid this price for it. This is followed by a basic shopping list, telling the reader a few good things to buy: if you're a complete novice then this might be useful, but no explanation is provided as to why you should be buying these foods. If you've already worked out that spinach and chicken are good for you, meanwhile, it's really not going to be worth much to you. Further, no explanation is given as to WHY you should be eating these specific foods; he claims to be giving his readers the knowledge needed to plan their own meals, but he's only doing that at the most superficial level. Telling people to eat vegetables isn't enough; people need to know why they should be doing so.
Next, he gives a sample daily meal plan, claiming that this template will allow you to plan your own meals.Read more ›
