Dolce Diet and Shoe Shopping
Imagine this scene. Your getting ready for work and while you have your outfit right, you just couldn’t find a shoe to match. You make a mental note to go shoe shopping later in the day. You punched in and out, and off you go. You enter the shoe store and you are faced with aisles and aisles of shoes. Everywhere you look, this heavenly footwear invites you to buy a pair. Of course, you know what you want, so you head straight to that area. As you scour shoe upon shoe, you brain goes automatic and decide which to buy. But of course, you also need to try it before making it to the cashier. On certain occasions, you contemplate on style, function and budget. But for the rest of the season, it is purely love at first sight. You just simply know what you want. The same goes with trying on a new diet. You envision yourself in a shoe store, but this time, not knowing what to get. As you google every diet known to man, your brain goes automatic and asks these 3 questions. Can I do it? Can I afford it? And the megabuck question, will it work? And so after many late nights of deciding which rings a bell, you chanced upon the Dolce Diet by Mike Dolce. The pictures alone enticed you to read more and so let us look into the Dolce Diet, shall we?
Created by former UFC Ultimate Fighter Mike Dolce, the Dolce Diet is set to get rid of unwanted pounds within a shorter period of time. Sounds incredible right? Rave reviews about this diet was mainly because Mike Dolce himself has been providing the nutrition and exercise program for many UFC athletes. One such phenomenal weigh in showed that in 24 hours, an athlete who weighed 205 lbs on a Thursday, weighed in at 185 lbs. the following day. A total 20 lbs drop, a miracle in weight loss standards! And this is the result of the Dolce Diet. What is the dolce diet after all?
Mike Dolce advocates 3 things: eat clean, exercise and NO to eating a lot. To do this, you have to follow his meal and exercise plan and record meals and workouts, a helpful tool, in my opinion. Eating clean is not your ordinary food safety, but consuming only organic foods. With all the organic food items available even in your favorite market, this is not a problem. Next, he advises on drinking one gallon of water a day to keep your system hydrated and helps in elimination of unwanted fats. For the exercise part, mike has included various toning and muscle building routines to get you ripped. The last item on the list which is to not overeat is self explanatory. Mike mentioned about incorporating certain supplements at the very end of the program, though he is not advocating the use of such and is not partial to it.
To get into the program you also need to look into his books, 3 Weeks to Shredded and Living Lean. However, his book 3 Weeks to Shredded is getting a lot of complaints. The book, literally a 45 page pamphlet of pictures and usual diet tips is what you get. Those who bought the book and are complaining about it said that the title itself is a misrepresentation as mike himself said in the book that he lost 42 lbs from 212 to 170 in 6 weeks. Does that mean you get to lose half of what you are supposed to lose since the book is meant to be followed for 3 weeks? It sounds like a math riddle but it is misleading. The tips mentioned in the book iare nothing but common sense as one reader opined. On the other hand, many people are loving the living lean cookbook, which features recipes and food lists to get you going lean. A reader commented on the Champion chili which was also enjoyed by his family.
Overall, the Dolce Diet is about changes into your diet including cooking and exercise routine. Those who have tried and are doing this diet swear that it works. Pictures (lots of it) are all over and are testimonies to the effectiveness of the diet.
Now, let us go back to the 3 questions above. Can you do the Dolce Diet? Check. A little sacrifice won’t hurt, after all no pain no gain. Can you afford it? Hmm, if the organic market is quite far from where you live that means extra charge on gas, not to mention organic items are a bit pricier. Check with reservations. Will it work? This you have to find out after committing a week or two on the diet. Tentative. Diets are simply disciplining yourself to make right choices to gain optimum health, wellness and the promise of a better body. In shopping for shoes, you don’t buy what you don’t like. But unlike shoe shopping, trying on a new diet requires paying the cashier first.
