We talked about his new book The 3-1-2-1 Diet- specifically he talked about his concept of 'Cheat Days' - they aren't just about the mental attitude but there's actually a little science behind it. Dolvett doesn't believe in deprivation (yay for wine!) but does believe if we spike our metabolism eating a cheat meal we can 'confuse' our body, giving it 'food to fight' and we'll wind up 'burning from both sides' but with an overall message that we should 'Lean towards Clean'. It sounds sensible enough - after all these days in exercise it's all about muscle confusion - this sounds like the same kind of idea! (and we have the official green light from Dolvett to eat apple pie and drink wine - and this girl doesn't need to be told twice!)
Being busy women we were all keen to find out how to get the biggest bang for our buck when it comes to working out - Dolvett came up with some awesome ideas for short yet challenging workouts that will incorporate both cardio and strength! He repeatedly mentioned about switching up your workouts - to confuse your body and cross training all the way!
We all get the exercise blues - those days when you just can't be bothered - even Dolvett admits that he has those days....and his advice?! Change it up, call a friend and my personal favourite - get some new music!
And finally.....Dolvett gets embarrassed easily - I may even have made him blush!! He has quite some stories to share....I guess just not with us!!
Thanks so much to Brandi from Diets in Review for hosting us and especially to Dolvett for taking the time out of his day to chat with us! Check out the full chat right here;
And that smile.......#swoon!
