Tom Venuto is arguably the most popular fat loss guru to be found on-line. His downloadable guide Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) has been the biggest selling health eBook for many many years.
For many, BFFM became inspirational rulebook for eating right and getting in shape. Venuto has finally produced a book in print. The Body Fat Solution is not shipping until Jan 8 2009 – but has already shot to around the #100 in Amazon’s bestseller list (out of all books).
Why all the buzz?The best way to answer this is to quote from author Venuto himself – responding to a series of questions (paraphrased):
“The new hardcover book, The Body Fat Solution, was written for anyone who is overweight, or who was formerly overweight and who wants to maintain their ideal weight without struggle”.
- It is NOT for athletes, bodybuilders or people who need to get “ripped” or reach extremes of low body fat.
- It is especially written for people who struggle with inconsistent motivation, emotional eating, binge eating and other forms of self sabotage.
- It gives help for people struggling with everyday challenges – like frequent travel, restaurant temptations, busy schedules, high stress and social pressure – things that can can get in the way of the best nutrition or training strategy.
- One concise chapter on nutrition is included along with chapters on cardio training and a time-efficient weight training program for the busy person, which makes The Body fat Solution a complete lifestyle program.
However, the major message is that “What nutrition or training program should you follow?” is not the most important question you should ask. The real critical question is…
What makes you follow your program?
And, conversely, “What makes you fall off your program so easily?”
This, indeed, is the 64 million dollar question. Look for The Body Fat Solution to become the bestseller of the new year.
Comments from our reviewer:
“Tom Venuto has appeared to have found a rare balance of sorts. The book is;
- Easy to follow and yet not oversimplified.
- Steeped in very good science and yet not clinical-sounding.
- Comprehensive and thorough and yet compelling to read.
- Motivating but not fluffy.
- Promotes personal responsibility without casting blame or inducing feelings of shame. Cutting edge but not spurious.”
