This book changed my life. Hyperbole? You decide. I wish I could show you my before and after pictures. Actually, I can. They are published on the back slip-cover of the hardback version! I burned off 122 lbs of fat while keeping my existing muscle. But what is truly most important is that the same principles in “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” that guided me in burning the fat, have helped me keep it off 4 years and counting. I cannot emphasize enough that this book is not simply a “diet” book, rather it is a “lifestyle” guide. In fact, by maintaining the lifestyle, I’ve continued to stay lean while building substantially more muscle. I am stronger, leaner, and more fit at age 45 yr than I have ever been. I consider “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” as a blueprint on how to permanently make the changes necessary to achieve my fitness goals. Unlike many “diet” books that come up with a catchy hook, and then pad out the necessary pages with recipes and anecdotes, “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” is both a WHY and a HOW TO book. This means that you will get the most out of it only if your objective is to learn how to permanently get in shape. If you want a “secret formula” or “magic pill”, then keep looking. If you are ready to start making the step by step changes that will bring you ever closer to your desired physique, then this is a must read. Like most people, I had tried many, many diets and plans over the years. I would often lose weight for awhile, only to regain as much or more later. Almost any plan can deliver results in the short term. But if the “plan” is not sustainable, then the results will not be sustainable either. “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” teaches the fundamentals of fat loss. Expend more energy than you consume, and with time you will burn off unwanted fat. This absolute truth leads to the time tested advice to become more active while controlling how much we eat. Tom Venuto successfully communicates that while this idea is simple, it is not easy. He explains that simple means uncomplicated, while easy suggests a lack of require effort. If you are looking for Easy, then keep looking. But if getting fit is important enough that you are willing to devote the necessary effort, then “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” is exactly what you need.
