Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle
Transform Your Body Forever Using the Secrets of the Leanest People in the World
By Tom Venuto
Published by Harmony
Hardcover: 368 pages
December 10, 2013; $27.00 US/$29.95 CAN; 9780804137843
DescriptionTwenty-five-year fitness industry veteran and bestselling author Tom Venuto has become one of the world's most respected fat-loss experts and natural bodybuilders. Venuto's famous system, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle, is now available for the first time ever in a new print edition, completely revised and updated with tons of never-before-published material.

Venuto hasn't always been in fabulous shape. In college, they called him "Fat boy" after he added twenty pounds of belly flab from his beer, pizza, and cheese fries diet. Frustrated and angry with himself, Venuto began researching the unique methods of bodybuilders and fitness models -- athletes he had admired for years because they have the lowest body fat and most-sculpted bodies in the world. He made himself a human guinea pig, putting these fat-burning and muscle-building methods to work and winning more than two dozen trophies in drug-free bodybuilding competitions. When crowds of people showed up at his gym door asking how he did it, he began sharing his methods with hundreds of one-on-one training clients. He went on to coach thousands of men and women online through his fitness websites. When Venuto self-published his fat-burning system as an ebook, ultimately he was able to help more than 300,000 people in 154 countries transform their bodies with the same "physique athlete" methods he had tested and proven on himself and his personal clients for over two decades.

Now available in print for the first time, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle teaches you the four elements of body transformation in his L.E.A.N. formula, including a fat-burning food plan that can be customized for your body type, a 28-day training plan for sculpting lean muscle, and the motivation strategies it takes to stick with your plan. The program is not about getting as ripped as a fitness model or becoming a bodybuilder like Tom did (unless you want to), it's about using their secrets to achieve your own personal goals. Whether you want to burn 10 pounds or 100 pounds, whether you want to build muscle or look "toned," Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is the bible for fat loss. It's the one must-have reference guide that will show you how to get permanent results the healthy, safe, and natural way, and you are sure to refer back to it for many years to come.

My Review:
If  you have been following my blog, you probably already know that I do CrossFit. I workout at least 4 days a week; if I have the free time, I will try to hit the box 5 days a week. Since I started CrossFit, I have lost some weight and my body is definitly more toned than before. As part of being fit and staying healthy, I have been on mostly Paleo diet. But I must admit that I fell off the wagon last month because of the holiday season. I indulge more than I should. Because of that, while I am working out as hard as I  I had in the past, I am at a standstill for gaining muscles. Reading this book has been very helpful to me. While I do not need help with cardio training or weight training thanks to my awesome trainers (though the book has details information if you need assistance with that), I really like that there are 7 chapters on nutrition. You get to learn about the differences between food fats and bad fats and get a very clear explanation of carbohydrates. My favorite chapter out of the entire book is "How to Accelerate  Your Fat Loss." In it, Tom Venuto offers four secrets of making low-carb diets more effective and easier to follow. I have not been able to read the entire book as well as I like yet, but I am looking forward to really tackling it during Christmas break. It will be great to use the information I have learned from Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle to get even more fit in 2014.
