Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle

Ever wondered how bodybuilders get to have lean muscles? You wonder whether they undergo extreme diets, hours and hours of exercise, or even the use of steroids. Sadly, there are bodybuilders who do that, but they eventually suffer the consequences of mismanaging their bodies.

There are, however, a group of "natural bodybuilders" who advocate for fitter bodies through proper dieting that does not deprive your body’s metabolism and not using steroids or even supplements.

One of them is Tom Venuto, who has been bodybuilding for 24 years and competing for 18 years. He believes that the diet industry is laden with scams, lies, myths, cover-ups, and deceptions. So, he reveals his very own weight loss program that aims to uncover all of the myths and make them work for you.

The gist

"Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle" is a 12-part mini-course that aims to provide simple strategies on losing weight permanently without ruining your metabolism (which he says would actually make you fatter) or using dietary supplements.

It also covers useful information such as how to scrutinize nutrition labels, what foods to avoid at all costs and what to eat on a frequent basis, and how to boost your metabolism and energy. The program is available both in print and e-book form, along with other additional reads, which costs around $40.

Advantages and disadvantages

"Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle" is written with both the body and mind standpoints. Not only does the program provides information on improving your body in the long run, but it also encourages you to set your own goals that you should achieve.

It intends for people to realize that if they know more about how something works and why it works, they can make better decisions in everything they do. And what’s more is that the plan is written by someone who has the expert experience, someone who is practicing what he preaches.

However, if you visit its main website, you might get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of texts. It is written as if you are watching an infomercial, so you get testimonials from satisfied users inserted in between the copy and the "order now" link that is displayed in three separate sections. Once you get past that and ordered the book, everything would be clearer.
