Burn fat feed muscles - Your body fat solution
Body Fat Solution is one of the most important books on health, happiness and physical well-being ever written. In this fast-moving, easily usable series of methods and techniques, you learn how to enjoy superb physical fitness, achieve your ideal weight, and feel terrific about yourself both emotionally and spiritually. You can either make excuses or get results, but you can’t do both.
This is a good book on fitness. In fact, it's a very great book on fitness. If you're looking for a text that will provide the information you need to have a lean, attractive body, then you've found it in The Body Fat Solution.
Who this book is for
Recommendations and claims for fitness, weight loss and especially for health must be put into context. I believe The Body Fat Solution can potentially help millions of people, but it’s not for everyone.
First and foremost, The Body Fat Solution was written for men and women who are overweight. It’s also for people who were previously overweight who want to maintain their ideal weight for the rest of their lives. This book is for the busy working person who doesn’t have all day to spend in the gym or in the kitchen preparing complicated meals. It was not written for the full time athlete, bodybuilder, fitness professional or person with unlimited time to exercise.
The Body Fat Solution was written for the layperson who wants simple explanations and practical action strategies to apply in daily life. This book is based on scientific research, but it was not written for the academic type who wants stoic reporting of all the latest studies.
The Body Fat Solution is strictly a fitness and fat burning program. It’s not for people with serious medical problems. By shedding excess body fat, many of your major health indicators are likely to improve dramatically. However, the exercise and nutrition suggestions in this program are not intended for clinical purposes. Always consult your physician, dietitian or clinical nutritionist for advice before starting any exercise or nutrition program.
What you can expect from The Body Fat Solution
The Body Fat Solution encourages slow and steady progress. You can expect results fast enough to keep you motivated, yet slow enough that you don’t risk your health. Extreme weight loss competitions and reality shows may be entertaining and even inspiring, but they’re about as far from reality as you can get. If you’re sincere about getting lean and staying lean, then this endeavor shouldn’t be a race, but a journey of learning and gradual self-improvement.
Instant gratification and quick fixes are rejected in favor of lifestyle changes. Rapid and extreme weight loss programs may be tempting, but are unrealistic for most people and usually produce only short-term results. A true solution doesn’t deceive you with temporary water weight loss or the short-lived exhilaration of quick results that can’t be maintained.
The Body Fat Solution is not a weight loss program, it’s a fat burning program. Muscle is weight that you want to keep. Fat is the weight you want to shed. You will typically aim for a weekly goal of about two pounds per week of body fat loss. If you have a lot of fat to lose, then losing up to 1% of your total bodyweight is a sensible weekly goal.
This program has no dogmatic exercise prescriptions, rigid food lists or strict carbohydrate counts. As you read each chapter, you’ll be amazed at the freedom you have in your exercise and food choices. If an exercise burns a lot of calories,
you can do it. If a food contains lots of nutrients and relatively few calories, you can eat it. You can even choose how many carbohydrates you want to eat instead of being restricted to a predetermined limit. This sense of freedom makes the program easy to fit your lifestyle.
To succeed in the long run, you need strategies for controlling your appetite. On The Body Fat Solution nutrition plan, you’ll experience less hunger than you would on other diets, because the calorie reduction is small, you get to eat something every three hours and the foods you’ll eat will make you feel fuller on fewer calories.
Many people are concerned that a fat loss meal plan must be bland or unpalatable. Not true! You can eat delicious foods and still lose body fat. In fact, you can eat anything you want as long as you understand the key to enjoying your favorite foods
appropriately. The answer is calorie control and moderation. Diets that force you to eat foods you dislike are usually among the first to fail, regardless of what other virtues they may possess. On The Body Fat Solution, there are no forbidden foods.
If you’ve struggled with excess body fat in the past, rest assured, it’s not because you had a “diet pill deficiency.” The Body Fat Solution does not promote or require any pills, drinks or supplements. You can take a multi-vitamin/mineral and other supplements if you choose, but they are not mandatory. So-called “fat burners” play no part in this program.
Food, not individual nutrients, is the focus of The Body Fat Solution and whole, natural food will be the secret to your success. You will eat common foods you can find readily at any grocery store or natural foods market in almost any country. If you ever get bored with your menu or can’t find a particular food, substitutions are a cinch.
Even more exciting, you’ll find this program is socially acceptable. You’ll be able to eat at restaurants with friends, attend social functions and enjoy holidays without worrying about your diet. When your friends see you eating chocolate, ice cream or your other favorite foods, they’ll be mystified at how you continue to get leaner. Even your meal schedule will be flexible. You can enjoy three traditional sit-down meals with snacks in between. Eating more frequent meals, as many athletes and bodybuilders do, is an option, not a requirement.
The Body Fat Solution is all about choice. It was engineered to fit your lifestyle, not disrupt it. Instead of being victim of a negative environment and peer pressure, you’ll learn how to recruit your friends, family, peers and co-workers as a part of your success team. You’ll quickly discover that surrounding yourself with winners helps you become a winner yourself.
I recommend The Body Fat Solution to anyone, big or small, young or old. Also, Tom's burn the fat body transformationprogram is a great read for the more serious weight training and bodybuilding folks.
Why The Body Fat Solution Is Different
Trainers, bodybuilders, psychologists, producers, fitness bloggers, magazines, newspapers, researchers, skeptics, scientists and fitness seekers alike are ALL saying the same thing: "This book is different."
That's because The Body Fat Solution is more about the psychology, emotions and social challenges of sticking with your program than the minutia of nutrition and training science.
Or, as The Wall Street Journal said, "The Body Fat Solution is more 'attitude adjustment' than diet book."
The Body Fat Solution is not just about what nutrition and training program you follow, it's about what makes you follow your nutrition and training program. (if that didn't make a light bulb go off in your head, then go back, read it again and really think about it!)
By recognizing that there are emotional, psychological and social factors that can sabotage your success, The Body Fat Solution hones in on the root causes of body fat and provides a total lifestyle plan to take back control of your body, end emotional eating and stop self-sabotage for good - so you can get that fat off and KEEP IT OFF for life!
The diet and weight loss industries thrive on novelty and quick fixes, and each program has a vested interest in convincing you that there's ONE evil culprit that's making you fat or ONE magic bullet that's the only way to get slim.
But unlike the new crop of diet fads you see on the bookshelves every year (which are gone the next), what what you'll learn in The Body Fat Solution are lifestyle principles, not diet tricks. Principles are timeless.
By Reading The Body Fat Solution, You Will:
End emotional eating
Increase Lean Muscle
Eat delicious foods you enjoy
Stop obsessing over details
Get motivated and stay motivated
Increase your metabolism
Develop a positive, supportive social network
Break Fat Loss Plateaus

Read What People Are Saying
Oprah Magazine says,
"Offering the opposite of a quick fix, Venuto is honest about the effort it takes to drop a significant number of pounds. This is the book for women ready to tackle long term weight loss."
Cognitive psychologist and author of The Beck Diet Solution, Judith Beck, PhD, says,
"Read this book - if you want to lose weight, improve your body and your health, and keep up these improvements for life. Tom Venuto gives it to you straight, basing his program on solid science and common sense. You will come away with a new feeling of inspiration and a new action plan to get you started and keep you on track to help you reach your goals-and then beyond."
Motivational Speaker & Best Selling Author Brian Tracy says:
"Tom Venuto's Body Fat Solution is one of the most important books on health, happiness and physical well-being ever written. In this fast-moving, easily usable series of methods and techniques, you learn how to enjoy superb physical fitness, achieve your ideal weight, and feel terrific about yourself both emotionally and spiritually."
World Class trainer and Author of "The New Rules of Lifting" Alwyn Cosgrove says:
"In 2003 Tom Venuto changed the fat loss world with his ebook Burn the Fat - Feed the Muscle... Now he's done it again with the Body Fat Solution. The World's expert on fat loss speaks - I listen. I've often said - Fat loss doesn't start with an exercise program, a diet or a supplement... It starts with a mindset shift. That mindset shift begins with Tom's new book. If you want to change your body - you need to change your mind. And to do that - you need Tom Venuto."
Library journal, (the 132-year old publication read by 100,000 libraries & librarians), said:
"Venuto gets at all the physical, psychological, and even sociological aspects of overeating, outlining a program of mental, cardio, and strength training stressing accountability and self-control. Nothing fluffy about this book: just well- founded scientific research and clearly illustrated direction."
Steve Yu, producer of 'Inspired The Movie' says,
"It will change the paradigm in how we view weight loss."
Dr. Chris Mohr, RD says,
"The Body Fat Solution" hits the nail on the head - after working in the weight loss arena for years, it's been difficult to find a book that truly spells out what it takes to lose weight permanently! It's not a gimmick, it's not a quick fix, but it surely is a solution!"
Brad Schoenfeld, CSCS, author of Sculpting Her Perfect Body says,
"Most consumer-oriented diet books are, to be kind, less than scientifically-based. The vast majority rely on gimmickry and hype, taking kernels of science and extrapolating them into non-sensible theories that have little physiologic credence. Not so with The Body Fat Solution. Tom Venuto takes a refreshingly honest approach in detailing the best ways to shed body fat and, most importantly, keep it off over the long haul. In sum: one of the best consumer-oriented nutritional books I've read. Highly recommended! Grade: 10 (out of 10)"
Alan Aragon, contributing editor Men's Health magazine, publisher of Alan Aragon Research Review says,
"This is probably the most scientifically sound weight loss book to ever hit the shelves of mainstream book stores."
Shawn Phillips, author of Strength For Life & Absolution says,
"RUN - don't walk - and get your hands on the most important weight Loss book of the next decade."
