So, I went home last night from a very long day of work, relationships, and let downs. I had a thousand and one things to do. Did I do any of them? No. Did I go to the grocery store at 9:30 pm to get my weekly groceries plus a bag of Cheese Doodles to then go home and devour them with an ice-cold angry orchard? Yes.
But something happened before I went to the grocery store and I suppose that’s the most important part of my day. I am a health guru, nutty for the nutritional guys and gals along with every famous personal trainer that gets the job done. And I am a HUGE fan of The Biggest Loser. I’ve also gotten out of the habit of eating ice cream sundaes while watching the show. They just make me so hungry.
Anyway, if you know the show, you know Dolvett Quince has been a trainer on it for 4 seasons. I love him. I love the breakthroughs he has with all of his contestants, I love his knowledge and I love his different take on things. I bought his book last night on my e-reader called The 3-1-2-1 Diet. I started reading it and I couldn’t stop. Not only is his views on life, food, and love so different from any other of the other trainers books that are collecting dust on my book shelf, but it’s just amazing to look at food and life in a whole new light.
Dolvett, first of all, is a fine-looking man. Who wouldn’t want to follow one of his plans? Second of all, he’s the first “professional” in my self-help nutritional books that didn’t tell me I was Obese based on my BMI (which, based on my body type, I am nowhere near Obese. I pack on muscle pretty quick and hard, so I resent this from every “diet” book I’ve ever read that has told me that). Dolvett takes you to a whole new level. You have to first measure the circumference of your wrist and then compare that to your height to figure out your build: small, medium, or large. I am medium which is exactly what I chose for myself. Then, based on your build and your height, you can see your healthy weight range, which wasn’t completely unattainable for me, but I’ll have to see how I feel as I go. Third, Dolvett lets you cheat. You know that piece of chocolate cake that you’ve wanted all week and feel like you can’t have it because you’re on the latest low carb, low-fat, nothing delicious except for baby carrots diet? Yea, no. Honey, you can have a piece of chocolate cake… ONLY on Days 4 and 7. Then all of the other days, you have to eat clean choosing. Dolvett provides you with what he calls Smart Proteins, Smart Carbs, Smart Fibers, Fibrous Fruits, Carby fruits, and also what you can indulge with on your cheat days. I’ve never had anyone map out for me what he did in the 2 hours it took me to go through the work.
I strongly suggest buying his book on Amazon, or through B&N on your e-reader.
