The Mike Dolce episodes are my favourite! It is great to see Mike back, more grounded than ever, and happy, as a father. Look at this smile!
I like Mike because he is the image of 200% commitment, in the way he accompanies the fighters through their preparation by living, eating and cutting weight with them.
I also like Mike because of his positivity, his simple and efficient message when he teaches me about health & nutrition, but also about getting things done. He is driven and congruent, great inspiration.

I believe 100% in what this man had to say about it not being about calories alone. To cut weight and be at your peak performance. I’m really glad he’s spreading the word and doing what he does. A really fabulous interview!
