Tom Venuto, author of Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle, one of the top selling books on burning fat while building muscle, has just released his first book The Body Fat Solution. It quickly became a #1 seller on Amazon and has impacted tens of thousands of lives already.
Written in a no nonsense style, Tom easily explains the principles to overcome emotional eating, why we eat more and exercise less (and what to do about it) and why it is so difficult to balance calorie input with calorie output. If you’re looking for a clear guide to calories and how they play a role in getting to your weight loss goals, this is the book for you.
The Body Fat Solution
The over consumption of calories plays a large role in our gaining fat but we’re not always so rational when we think about food, hunger or exercise. The Body Fat Solution: Five Principles for Burning Fat, Building Lean Muscles, Ending Emotional Eating, and Maintaining Your Perfect Weight is aptly named.
Drawing on his years of personal experience as a personal trainer and nutritional adviser, Tom lays out a clear plan of action to overcome the very things that keep us where we’re at and to help bust any plateaus. It’s the “little things” that we don’t think of that are just as important as daily exercise.
The Body Fat Solution is impacting lives. I received this recently from one of my subscribers:
I just want to fall down on my knees and THANK YOU for recommending Tom Venuto’s book: The Body Fat Solution. While I was reading it, I felt my mind being reprogrammed, and my physical health is now my top priority. I relaized that I have always made other things priorities. I have a wall full of diplomas, degrees and certifications as proof of my relentless pursuit of goals. It wasn’t until I read this book that I realized that having the body I have always wanted was a simple as deciding to do it- no excuses, no acknowledgment of barriers- except to kick them down or work around them and no tolerance for failure. I exact these standards in other areas of my life- my health should have been top priority all along! The athlete inside of me is awake and it is SO on. Thank you so so much for caring enough to share this information with me.
When I first reviewed Tom’s Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle, I said that I learned some new principles that took my physique to the next level.
Well, he did it again (Thank you Tom).
Tom discusses hunger in a way that I’ve never read before, and it was exactly what I needed to hear. We tend to overeat because we fear hunger but it’s in embracing hunger – just a little bit of hunger – that gets us closer to our goals.
It’s easy to accept that eating too much will add weight to our bodies, but it’s in overcoming the fear of hunger that we reach our goals quicker. It’s time to reframe our beliefs on hunger and accept, as Tom so beautifully puts it, that “hunger is not an emergency”. Tom does not take credit for that statement though, and says he’s quoting Judith Beck.
Hunger IS NOT an emergency!
Hunger is the sound of “fat cells shrinking”.
By being a little bit hungry between meals, just a little mind you, we reach our goals of a lean physique that much quicker. Hunger must be reframed in your mind and understood to be your friend – your ally. I’ll never forget a conversation I had with Tom a few years ago when he said “Rob, you must go to bed just a little hungry every day”.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that to myself since reading the book. I’ve updated my facebook status with that statement and tweeted it on twitter. It’s something you have to take on and accept, if even for the short term, until you reach your goals.
We’ve eaten too much food and we’ve stored it. Eating is fun, but to reverse that process, we must accept hunger. As I said earlier, reframe hunger and begin to realize that hunger is fat cells shrinking.
The Body Fat Solution is a robust book – as important for the weekend warrior as it is for the weight loss novice. Part of what you’ll learn:
- Change your vision and gain indomitable confidence by setting manageable goals
- Maximize your metabolism to jolt out of plateaus
- reshape your body through lean muscle training for a strong core and toned frame
- invite a supportive social network of friends, family, and mentors to help you achieve your dream for life
.. and it goes so much further past all that. It’s had an immediate impact on me and how I think from chapter to chapter that I simply must share it with someone.
I recommended The Body Fat Solution by Tom Venuto when he first released it and after reading it myself and hearing back from Tangee, I want to give a couple of copies away.
