A Review of Tom Venuto's "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle"

by Chet Day


Chet "Burn Fat" Day

I've been recommending Tom' Venuto's Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle since July of 2003 for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that it's the #1 best selling diet and fitness ebook in the history of the Internet.

Why is this program so popular?

The answer is simple...

It's because thousands of women and men of every age are burning off BODY FAT - not muscle or water weight - and they're doing it naturally, without supplements, pills or "magic potions," simply by using the proven, scientifically-accurate and commonsense advice found inside this excellent diet and fitness guidebook.

Tom Venuto is a respected fat loss expert, natural bodybuilder, and personal trainer. Unlike many in the natural health circus, Venuto has not just pumped out another "diet program" into an already over-saturated market.

You see, Tom's Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle program can be more accurately described as a "Fat Loss Bible."

It is quite simply one of the most complete, detailed, and precise guides to fat loss you will ever read.

You may be wondering... what makes this program so different from the zillions of other weight loss publications on the market?

Well, first of all, it's not a "weight loss" program, it's a "fat" loss program.

This may seem like semantics or wordplay at first, but once you've read just the first three chapters, there will be no doubt in your mind that pursuing "weight loss" is not only the wrong goal, it may be the reason that you've failed to reach and maintain your ideal body weight.

Burn The Fat shows you exactly why it's fat you must lose, not "weight" (which includes muscle, water, and other lean tissue) and then goes on to show you exactly how to do it.

All the Bases of Permanent Fat Loss are Covered

Another element that makes Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle different is the amount of attention that's paid to each and every element of successful, healthy, and permanent fat loss.

Burn The Fat not only thoroughly dispels the lies, myths, and fallacies surrounding a very confusing subject, but it is also one of the most detailed books about fat loss ever written.

By reading Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, (or better yet, "studying it"), you'll probably learn more about fat loss than you could from an entire semester of nutrition classes or from an entire shelf of mainstream diet publications at your local bookstore.

You may be wondering...

  • Is this a low carb diet?
  • A high protein diet?
  • A high fat diet?
  • What type of program IS it?"

The truth is that Burn the Fat is neither a high protein diet nor a low carb diet. That's because with the information in this book, you will be able to easily determine your own ideal protein, carbs, and fats ratio.

You'll also be able to analyze your body type (are you an endomorph, ectomorph, or mesomorph?), you'll determine your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate, or the amount of "maintenance" calories your body requires every day), and you'll find out whether you are carb tolerant or carb intolerant.

This personalized approach makes perfect sense because each of us is a unique individual, and no two people are exactly alike in terms of body physiology and personal goals.

You Must Set Goals for Successful Weight Loss

One of the most powerful chapters in Venuto's book is the first one called, "How To Set Powerful, Compelling Goals That Will Propel You Forward and Charge You Up with Unstoppable Motivation."

In this chapter, you'll learn what is probably the ultimate secret to burning fat and getting in shape... and it has nothing to do with diets, supplements or training programs. There's also a great quote in this chapter from the legendary Green Bay Packers coach, Vince Lombardi...

"The dictionary is the only place success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must all pay for success."

That line does a nice job of expressing the "no quick fix" philosophy behind Venuto's entire program.

In the rest of the book, you'll learn the complete and exact mechanics of fat loss - explained on both a scientific and a practical level (which you can easily apply in your own daily life in terms of what to eat and how to exercise to burn fat).

A Potential Drawback

If there is any drawback to the Burn The Fat ebook, it's that it contains so much information, that some readers may find it a bit overwhelming.

Those who are looking for a "cliff's Note's" quick start type of fat loss program, might be a bit intimated at first.

The good part however, is that even these types of readers can feel confident and assured that it will be worth the effort because this will literally be the last book they ever have to buy on the subject.

Who will benefit most from Burn the Fat?

In the broadest sense, anyone and everyone who needs to lose weight will benefit from Burn The Fat, Feed the Muscle.

Men, women, bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts, and especially motivated individuals and avid readers will love this book.

Although it was written by a bodybuilder, this book is certainly NOT just for bodybuilders.

You won't find any "30 lbs. in 30 days" miracles at work here.

Instead, firmly grounded in the realities of weight loss, Burn The Fat is all about intelligent eating choices, planning, hard work, and healthy lifestyle changes.

As the author says, "Burning fat is simple, but it's not easy."

How's the Book Laid Out?

In terms of graphic design, Burn the Fat is a clean and professionally formatted PDF ebook.

It's a bit on the plain side, being just text, but that makes it ideal for printing and reading in the comfort of a favorite chair. Because of its size, it does require a robust printer and a good stack of paper.

When I first endorsed and started recommending this program back in July of 2003, some of my website readers and newsletter subscribers thought that Burn the Fat was priced on the high side.

I mean, seriously, I got a few emails saying, "Almost forty bucks for a PDF download? Gimme a break."

Well, I pointed out that Venuto's program came with a moneyback guarantee and that if they didn't get the results they wanted, Tom would return their moola, no question asked.

And the rest is history because ever since July of 2003, my readers and website visitors who have purchased Tom's program have had nothing but good things to say about it.

Indeed, after they saw the amount of information contained within Burn The Fat's 340 pages, along with the special bonus reports that come with it, they said it was not only worth the $39, but many times that amount.

As with any how-to publication, you're not really paying for the materials used to compile the document, but for what the information can do for you, and clearly, this publication has changed many lives and the hundreds of testimonials and success stories found on the Burn The Fat website are proof of that.

I urge you take a look at that "testimonials" page on the Burn The Fat website because some of the before and after transformations are simply incredible - as well as inspiring.

The Bottom Line?

Anyone looking for a quick fix solution to fat loss, anyone looking to be told fairy-tales, and anyone looking for a "magic bullet" offered by the likes of body wraps, fat burning pills, diet shakes, or "fat-burning" creams and gels is best advised to steer clear of Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle.

On the other hand, if you're...

  • tired of "spinning your wheels" and going nowhere...
  • if you want the truth about fat loss...
  • and if you are ready and willing to put in the hard work and discipline and make the lifestyle changes necessary to get a fat free body...

Then you'll find Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle to be one of the best investments you've made in your life.
