Dolvett Quince's 3-1-2-1 Diet (WATCH)

Are you having a hard time getting motivated to start a new diet or workout regimen? Dolvett Quince, "The Biggest Loser" trainer and author of "The 3-1-2-1 Diet," explains that the 3-1-2-1 diet is actually a lifestyle plan. Three days out of the week, eat a clean diet - lean protein, green vegetables, and a smart carb (like sweet potatoes or brown rice). On the fourth day, you cheat! Have a glass of wine or a piece of cake, because you earned it. On the fifth day, go back to eating clean again. This shocks your body, speeds up your metabolism, and most importantly, provides a realistic way of eating that won't leave you feeling like you're missing out!
