That was a cool interveiw. I always hear fighters talk about Mike Dolce and I was always curious what he does that makes them so high on him. It interesting to hear a little about his approach.

he has a book. but yeah coming from someone who is very interested in nutrition…this guy knows his sh*t. i really love dolce’s ideas.

sounds great but must be nerve racking for a guy used to doing it the traditional wrestlers cut way. there is a comfort of working down to a weight.

Ive cut 14lbs in 1 day. Im not a fighter, and I used water loading, sodium depletion, but all through a set system that bodybuilders use. They know how to cut weight on the natural circuit, with food, teas, and non illegal diurectics.

Mike Dolce does have a book coming out soon. My wife already got some recipies from it and they are healthy and so good.

Awesome – that guy’s attitude is spot on. Smart move on Chael’s camp to get him involved.

The guy is really needed…now hopefully others will incorporate or build off of what he is demonstrating by smart nutrition.

The bodybuilding industry knows everything about cutting, building strength, ect.

20 pounds? Sonnen can drop 20 pounds in a couple of minutes. With all the s*** he talks, he is so full of it that he only needs to take a huge dump!

When you can’t fight, you become a nutritionist.

RiverDanceGod you are one dumb piece of s#$%, what do you even do for a living?

Samsonite Says, in 7-6-2012 at 16:23:18 from    

@MJon I think his name says it all…

Per Dolce’s Twitter Sonnen was 192 last night so I’m sure his weight cut is going fine. He’s probably trolling you again.

I’m about 90% more interested in this fight after listening to this guy talk. Interesting guy. Great attitude.

From What Dolce’s saying about Sonnen sweating easily (even at the start of the session, even as he’s talking to media) plus diet regiment he described (that doesn’t include gradual weight drop) sounds like he’s giving some form of the stimulant to the fighter. If I were to take a guess it’ll be some form of the Thyroid Hormone derivative or chemical that induces production of thyroid hormones (T4/T3) – these hormones elevate metabolic rate (O2 consum. by the body leading to elevated body temp -> profuse sweating and significant weight loss. In the case of such short period of time weight loss comes from sever dehydration). Such stimulants are very dangerous to the heart and are as stressful as previous techniques of loosing H2O weight.) At the end of the day Sonnen is still dehydrated and that effect + very dangerous stimulants is quite damaging to athletes body. SO I think this guy is full of s***.

Amazing! Hes aware and told us about every item of Chales intake. Funny how he failed to mention the amount of TRT he takes.

vp Says, in 7-6-2012 at 20:08:33 from    

Just to add, every time when a person is sweating or feeling hot without an appropriate for that physical stimulus, one should consider hyper active thyroid gland or Rx that causes the increase. Dolce mention one point about athletes being starved which increases their cortisol levels and increase in immune response (inflamation) is complete BS. Cortisol is the hormone that decreases immune response (that’s why synthetic version of it is prescribed in conditions that require decrease of immune attack/inflamaiton – like rheum. arthritis etc. That makes it obvious he doesn’t know much about scientific approach nor medicine. Any chronic stress induces elevation of cortisol (Do you think training for weeks and going through all this media crap talk would cause him stress out from time to time?)

Perulives Says, in 7-6-2012 at 22:13:38 from    

I’m pretty sure he was sweating because he was wearing a sauna suit while doing open workouts. I’ve seen guys lose 12+ lbs in a few hours just wearing a neoprene suit while doing circuit training

I miss watching Mike knocking fools out!! He needs to get back in the cage.

baller Says, in 7-8-2012 at 05:39:11 from    

am now interested in his s***, he will make it big in this

vp is an idiot Says, in 7-8-2012 at 22:53:34 from    

dude, you have no clue what you are talking about. Dolce is a legitimate nutritionist, and ive never heard of him giving stimulants to a fighter to cut weight. Where are you even getting this disinformation? Why dont you pick up a BOOK and actually read it instead of spewing s*** you made up.
