I recently began kickboxing training. I love the class and it has made a huge difference in my life. In a few short months I managed to lose 25 lbs and have become much stronger. This was done with little care for what I ate and no real change to my lifestyle. The first 25 lbs came off easily, but the last few pounds are much harder to get rid of. Being a Mixed Martial Arts fan, I have seen Mike Dolce on multiple occasions standing beside some of the most well known names in MMA. His personal plan has helped these fighters to meet fight weights, but in a way that was easier and healthier than traditional weight cutting. The plan describes how he personally lost 28 lbs in 21 days. Clearly, he is a professional athlete and was under the supervision of trainers and doctors during his diet.
I am not a professional athlete. I am just a regular normal everyday person that is looking for a way to make some healthy changes to my life. If I was able to 25 lbs by just adding kickboxing training to my life, think about how much more successful I could be if a reworked my diet. This is why I chose the Dolce Diet. It is suppose to boost your burn and at the same time it maximizes your build.
I was very curious how the Diet work, but honestly it is one of the best kept secrets out there. There is really not a lot of research one can do to see what the plan is all about. Since the only documented cases available for review were all professional athletes, I was concerned that this would not be appropriate for a regular person. However, curiosity won out and I decided to take a chance and purchase the book.
Skeptical and doubtful, I read through the book the day I got it. Surprisingly my first reaction was "I can do this!". So I the following day I went through my re-education on food shopping and prepared mentally to take on the task. I my goal is not to loose 30 lbs in 3 weeks. I just want to see if I can stick to the plan, train myself to eat right and get rid of some bad habits.
So I had to say some painful goodbyes. Beer, Grey Goose and pizza were probably the hardest ones to let go, but it had to be done. We had some good times together, and I hope to see them again soon, but we can't be friends for awhile. Who knows when we do meet again, they may not even recognize me.
With all my goodbyes taken care of and my commitment to this engaged....today was Day 1.
